Chapter 12: Jealous much
“So ladies, How can I helChwp you?” a cute guy asked us. He was wearing sunglasses and he had a little smirk playing on his face.
“We’d like to do jet ski” I said with a smile. My friends snorted behind me, making me turned to look at them in confusion. “You don’t?” I asked and they shook their heads.
“We’re going to lay on the beach and sunbath while waiting for you” Hannah said with a grin.
“Why not come with me?” I asked with a pout and tried my Bambi eyes to try to persuade them.
“We’re scared shit of that thing” Becca said while shaking her head. The cute Mauritian guy chuckled next to me.
“There’s nothing to be afraid of” he said huskily while eyeing Becca up and down.
“She’s taken” I told the guy making Becca choke on her saliva.
“I’m not!” she exclaimed and playfully smack the back of my head. “Go already” She huffed but I could sense amusement in her voice. The guy motioned me to walk in front of me and handed me a life jacket.
“Just don’t go near the reef and where people are swimming” he said while tightening the jacket. He walked to a jet ski and I saw a red jet.
“I’m riding this?” I asked with excitement and he nodded. I did a happy dance, ignoring my friends laughter. “What’s your name?” I asked the guy as he helped me on the jet ski.
“Mike” he said with a smile. “And what about you?” he asked.
“Victoria” I told him.
“Well, Victoria, have you ever done jet ski before?” he asked. I nodded with a proud smile while adjusting my non existent collar making him chuckle. “I’ll be right behind you” he said before starting the jet ski. I let out a squeal of happiness and I heard the whooping of my friends who were cheering for me. Soon, I was riding over the waves, making the jet ski jump in the air. Adrenaline rushed in my veins and a smile stayed on my face. I increased the speed and kept on increasing it, feeling as if I was flying. I did a sharp turn to see Mike behind me. He had a huge smile too. His job must be great. I mean, imagine having a job where all you have to do all day is Jet ski!
Aiden’s Point Of View
“The girls went already!” I heard David exclaimed from downstairs. I took a towel and put it on my shoulder as I walked downstairs to see Sebastian, Adam, David and John staring at a piece of paper. “They told us to meet them at the beach” he continued. I sighed in disappointment as I really wanted to ride with Karma. I have to admit that the girl was already under my skin.
“Let’s get going then” Adam huffed. I knew that he was annoyed by the fact that he didn’t get to ride with Hannah.
“Missing Hannah much?” John teased. Adam smacked the back of his head then walked out of the house, with us following behind him.
We arrived at the beach in less than ten minutes. As we got off the car, Sebastian turned to look at us. “Guys, Rebecca is single, right?” he asked, making all of us snicker.
“She was all over you earlier” John pointed out.
“Maybe she was just playing along” Sebastian said with a shrug.
“She’s single” David said while staring at John. I have to admit that I was a bit surprise when David said that he was gay. He never told me before. I mean, he was one of my best buddies. John, Adam and Sebastian walked forward while David trailed behind, waiting for me.
“When were you going to tell me?” I asked while putting my sunglasses on and flashing a smile to the passing by girls.
“About what?” he questioned stupidly. Some girls were eyeing us up and down.
“Are you serious?” I scoffed. “That you’re gay” I said while glaring at him.
“It’s not something that I want to scream on the roof of a house” he mumbled. Wait, he was afraid of people’s judgment?
“Dude, I’m your best buddy” I said while shaking my head.
“How was I suppose to know that you’d be okay with that?” he asked.
“Like I said before, you’re my best buddy and I have to accept you however you are” I said.
“Are you sure you’re not gay? Because you do sound like one” He joked making punch him.
“I’m straight like a stick” I mumbled. As we stepped on the beach. Our eyes scanned the surrounding then we saw the guys standing by Hannah and Rebecca. They were all looking at the sea. I made my way to them and looked at the sea too. Dark red hair in the wind, that was the first thing I saw. Karma was jet skiing. She looked so happy as she increased the speed and tried to make a sharp turn. There was a guy behind her and they were both smiling to each other.
“Who’s he?” I asked as I took off my sunglasses.
“The monitor” Rebecca said while everyone started putting their things on the sand and started to relax. i couldn’t relax. I wanted Karma to be back, away from that asshole who was smiling at him.
“Dude, relax” David said as he sat next to me, staring at Karma too. However, his eyes quickly switched to John’s back who was walking to the water. Hannah was walking with him and they were both shaking at the temperature of the water. “Do you think he has a thing for Karma?” David asked with a frown.
” You’re jealous?” I asked while snickering.
“You’re not?” he asked with a grin as he stared at Karma and the monitor. “You should be, I mean, she can get anyone she wants” he said making me groan. I clenched my jaw.
“Dude, why would you say that?” I asked with frustration. What was that girl doing to me?
“Now, you understand what I feel” he joked. “I feel even worse though, I don’t even know if he’s gay or not” he sighed as he pointed in John’s direction.
“There’s only one way you could find out” I told him and pushed him away. “Go and talk” I said, laying on the sand. David stared at John hesitantly before walking away. I put my sunglasses on again and put my hands under my head, letting my skin drink up the sun. Soon, I felt droplets of water falling on my chest and realized that someone was blocking the sun. I opened my eyes slowly to see Karma leaning over me, holding her hair over my chest. She giggled when I pushed my sunglasses down to look at her.
“What are you doing?” I asked and she gave me an innocent smile.
“Drying my hair” she said before twisting her hair and letting more droplets of water fall on me. I grinned at her before pulling on her leg, making her trip and fall on me. I held her wrists and watched as she positioned herself on me with her legs on the either side of my waist. “Aiden, let me go” she said with a panic voice while looking around if people were staring.
“No. I like you on me” I said while giving her a smirk. She pouted making me stare at her red lips. “Sweetheart, don’t pout” I suggested and she rose one of her eyebrows in confusion.
“Huh?” she simply said. “Why?” she asked, trying to free her wrists from my grasp.
“It makes me want to bite your lips” I told her truthfully before flipping her on her back and this time, I was straddling her. She let out a gasp at how close our faces are. I need to take things slow. I didn’t want to freak her out, specially when she thought that the only thing I wanted was sex. Just as she was about to talk, another unfamiliar voice was heard.
“Hey Victoria” I heard a masculine voice called from beside us. I turned my head slightly to see the monitor. I glared at him. Can’t he see that we were busy? “You’re all still coming later?” he asked. My face switched to that of Karma who nodded. I pushed myself off her and sat on the sand.
Karma′s Point of view
I wanted him to kiss me! Why did Mike interrupt us?! I nodded at Mike but I could feel Aiden tense from above me. We were not really in a good position. I blushed a bit as Aiden pushed himself off me. He seemed a bit moody as I saw him clenching and unclenching his jaw. “Great, I’m going to text you the address” Mike said happily. I turned my attention back to Aiden but Mike talked again. “Are you single?” he asked. Aiden’s eyes met mine and I could see anger in them.
“Yes” I replied truthfully. Mike beamed before walking away. Just as I was about to talk to Aiden, he stood up with anger and stormed off. What the heck? “Aiden!” I called out as he walked away. I ran behind him and he ignored me. I was breathing heavily when I reached him. I put my hand on his arm and pulled on it. “Stop, I’m tired of running after you”′ I huffed, now my voice seeping frustration. Was he jealous? What did I do wrong?
“Go run after your monitor!” he snapped and pulled his arm before walking away, again.
“What the fuck is wrong with you?” I asked in anger.
“You gave him your number and you’re already going out with him tonight?” he asked with clenched jaw.
“We are all going out! He invited us to a party!” I exclaimed in disbelief.
“He just want to sleep with you!” he sneered. I scoffed and crossed my arm over my chest.
“As if that’s not what you want too” I backfired. He was opening his mouth to talk again but I put my hand forward to stop him. “Save it!” I snapped. “And you have no right to act like this, you aren’t my boyfriend, so don’t act like this” I continued. “I can go out with whoever I want, you can’t gave any say in that. You’re my friend, so act like a friend" I seethed, then turned away, leaving him speechless as I walked away from him. He was jealous. Why would he be jealous? He can’t like me, right? I mean, he’s a man whore.
