“Alexandros, open this god-forsaken door right now!”
A shrill voice rang through the outside hallway and Alexandros’ bedroom, loud enough to be heard clearly even with the heavy wooden door being locked and shut. Audrey heard Alex moan irritably beside her, and silently watched him as he rose from the bed, leaving the top of her head partially exposed. The brunette hastened to cover herself up completely once more, thus attracting Alex’s attention for a moment.“There’s nothing to worry about.”
he said, in a tone meant to reassure her. The words, of course, had not had his desired effect on Audrey. She was as reassured as one could be while laying nude under the covers of a man’s bed with his sister shouting bloody murder outside his door, demanding to go inside.’Nothing to worry about, my ass.’
Audrey didn’t have much time to think, because soon she was hearing footsteps, the door unlocking, the doorknob moving and the door swinging open.
The young woman’s voice inquired, in the same brass tone, who Alex had been talking to, to which he gave a smartass answer. As expected, the young woman continued to question him, and this time he replied with a lie. From her position under the covers, Audrey was starting to get a familiar sensation in her lower region, one that was as unwelcome as a sneeze would be in this situation… She wanted to pee. Badly.
As a pair of lighter footsteps entered the room, Audrey felt her body starting to shake with the pressure of holding the pee in. Unfortunately, this was noted by the young woman, who commented aloud on the fact, Audrey closed her eyes and willed her body to stop shaking and focus on other than the fact that she really
had to go. But as it often happens in cases like this: the more you try not to think about it, the more you do.
To Latina’s dismay, Alexandros admitted he had a ‘lady friend’ in his bed. She was relieved that he hadn’t mentioned her name, but the relief was soon replaced with suspicion when the young woman mentioned another female’s name. At this, Alex laughed and denied. However, when he said something about ringing the other girl up, Audrey was now shaking with holding back from getting out of the covers, grabbing him by the throat and demanding to know who this ‘Vio-bitch’ was.
At the young woman’s clear disapproval, Alex shrugged off his previous comments. And to prove his point, he pulled the covers to reveal the person hidden underneath them.
Audrey let out a shriek as she felt the covers pulled off her. She’d barely had time to grab enough of the sheets as to not have her whole body exposed. But her head and shoulders were now completely visible for the world to see. Her eyes, wide with shock at the embarrassing situation she was in, met a pair of blue ones similar to Alexandros’. The petite, pajama-clad young woman staring at her with an identical speechless expression to hers was Alexandros’ younger sister Ava. Whatever urge to pee Audrey had previously had, it instantly vanished.
Audrey watched with a petrified expression as Ava gathered herself again before declaring she was ‘better than than that blonde bimbo’ and addressing her directly. The brunette swallowed as the young woman sort of welcomed her to the family (which was a rather interesting choice of words seeing as this was the first time Audrey and Alex had been ‘together’), gave her a rundown of which family member was in and who was out, and reassured her that at least she wouldn’t have to face the Mossos heads of the family before heading out, mumbling to herself. Although this was a fact that did relieve her, it did nothing to change the fact that she had been caught in Alexandros’ bed by his sister.
Finally, Alexandros looked at Audrey, who shot him a death glare so heated that it could have melted the Antarctic.“Don’t give me that look. Ava’s really observant. You should really work on the concept of ‘staying still.”
he teased her, bopping her nose with his right index finger.
At any other moment, she would have found the gesture endearing. But instead, she slapped his hand away. “That didn’t mean you had to fucking expose me like that, Alexandros!”
Audrey shrieked indignantly, throwing the sheets off from her body and rising up to her full 5’7” height. Even if Alex had nearly half a foot on her, the way her brown eyes blazed with anger and her fists were shut tight were enough to sober him up. “What the fuck were you thinking, pulling the sheets off me like that?! And in front of your sister, no less! Pull a little harder and she would’ve gotten a real eyeful! I can’t believe you made me go through this fucking humiliating scene. What’s she going to think about me now?! Ever stopped to think about that? Of course not, you selfish prick! All you care about is yourself!”
Alex paid no attention to her rant, and instead continued as if nothing had happened. He mentioned meeting his brother and food, and even in Audrey’s livid state some breakfast sounded good to her now-aching stomach (which was definitely contributing to her current abrasive mood). Begrudgingly, she unceremoniously grabbed the shirt from Alex’s hand and slid it on her tanned body. As she buttoned it, she made her way to a dresser and opened it without permission. She found just what she’d been looking for on the first try: a pair of black boxer briefs, which she quickly slid on before making her way to face Alexandros. “For the record: if I ever hear about you getting involved with this Viola person -whoever that whore is- I will bite your dick off. And trust me, I am not playing around. Just ask Bianca Salazar and Janice Nelson.”
Before he could register what had just been said, Audrey summoned up as much dignity as she could given her current position; as much dignity as one could had when wearing nothing but one of Alex’s clean boxers and a button-down shirt. The brunette turned her back on him, locks of wavy brown hair swinging behind her, and stomped out of the room, head held high. She didn’t wait for Alex to escort her to the kitchen, and took it upon herself to get there on her own even if it meant getting lost along the way.
But first things first: she really
needed to pee.
