WORK IN PROGRESS WEDNESDAY TEASER: FLAWED PERFECT
I stuck my head out, checking the coast was clear before scooting out. As I closed the door to Adam’s room his eye’s met mine, begging me not to leave. We had so much to talk about, but I was already running away. I shut the door anyways, and when I turned a light yelp that I covered with my hand echoed from my mouth.
“Tara!” I hissed, looking at my best friend sneaking out of Bobby’s room.
“River!” she hissed back, a happy smirk covering her face.
We both rushed for the front door trying to withhold the fit of giggles. She looked hilarious in Bobby’s extra large shirt, literally now a dress on her.
When we got into my apartment we both fell on the couch in a fit of loud, happy giggles.
“Holy crap!” Tara yelped out. “What happened last night?”
“Freaking heaven, that’s what!” I replied through tears.
“You’re telling me!” she answered, and we both started laughing again.
After several seconds of trying to catch our breath, we turned to face one another, suddenly serious.
“Really, what happened?” I asked finally.
Tara shrugged. “After you and Adam ushered Kiki out,” she dragged out the word, teasing my nastiness; “Jackie threw a temper tantrum, at which point Bobby went ballistic on her. So then that was over, and Bobby and I were talking on the balcony…I was pretty loaded, and for some reason I just happened to admit I’d had a crush on him since I met him…one thing led to another, and here we are—very satisfied, I might add.”
I scrounged my nose at the last comment. “That good, huh?”
Tara took a deep breath, flopping back on the couch. “You have no idea.”
“Eww, he’s like a brother to me!” I commented, grabbing a pillow from behind me and swinging it at her.
She sat up, grabbing the pillow, and eyed me. “Speaking of brothers, what happened with you and his?”
I looked down at Adam’s t-shirt covering my body and the butterflies rose up again, along with an unhealthy dose of doubt.
“We went into his bedroom to escape the madness the party had become, and then he admitted how long he’d had a crush on me…one thing led to another,” I murmured, playing with the hem of his shirt.
“What’s wrong?” Tara asked, leaning forward and taking my hands in hers. “You were so happy a second ago?”
I closed my eyes and took several breathes before opening them to see Tara’s soft green eyes pondering mine.
“I know Adam.”
