The Carters blared in the silence of the large room, the small snippet of the song replayed a few times before a hand blindly swung in the general direction of the phone knocking it to the hardwood floors. “Carajo!”
The girl grumbled and felt something, or rather someone nuzzling into her, in her drowsy state Yessi couldn’t recollect anything from the night before and felt her blood turn cold. Shit, already?
Reluctantly, Yessi slowly opened her eyes, and immediately expelled a relieved breath. A smile played at her lips as she identified the nuzzler to be Ximena. “Meme, despierta.”
Yessi’s voice was quiet as she brushed the brown hair out of the Colombian princess’ face, “If you don’t wake up I’ll kiss you la Bella Durmiente.”
Ximena was having such a vivid dream, she was the star bachelorette and it was down to the final rose between two men. She was cuddling with one of her male suitors nuzzling her face into his body. It was perfection, she heard her bachelor calling out to her, only how did he know that name only Yessi knew. The voice turned from manly to quite girly in seconds and her hair being brushed away revealed her pouty face. “Don’t kiss me with that hot morning breath. 5 more minutes porfa,”
she pleaded while attempting to cover her face with a pillow.
Astraia laughed in response to Ximena and stole the pillow she was using to cover her face. “You will have to drive yourself to school if you aren’t ready in time, principessa.”
The warning was followed by the pillow being thrown back at the sleeping girl’s head as Yessi scooped up her phone off the floor and headed into the bathroom, the dread of facing everyone had yet to hit her. But... There was still time.
Being alone in that bathroom while she showered seemed to have been all it took to wash away the confidence she had been building up the past week. Memories of a life she had chosen to opt out of came flooding back, the faces of people she had loved, and the people she had not, flashed in her mind vividly. Though none of them affected her quite like the smiling face, as she remembered, of one particular pendejo
. The water was promptly shut off, a towel snatched and wrapped around her body, and her ass planted itself on the edge of the bathtub with her hands holding her head.
Muffled moans and groans were all that could be heard from under the pillow in the vacant room. With a series of stretching and inhuman noises coming from the bed, Ximena was finally ready to get up. Opening the bathroom door so she could pee, XiXi then took her seat on the bathtub adjacent to Yessi. “What’s wrong muñeca? Dímelo.” “Ugh, I can’t do this, tengo mala suerte. I know I’ll just fucking walk straight into him while trying to actively avoid it.”
Yessi groaned lifting her head from her hands, stood up and started brushing her teeth despite the growing urge to skip out on school today.
While some believed this one wicked witch had a heart as cold as ice, there existed ways of melting it. One way in particular was hearing the pain that stuck to her best friends words like thick tar. Empathic never seemed like a word that could be associated with Ximena, but who could have known. “Quién? Whoever it is, I’ll kill him”
Ximena hissed hoping for a name to write in her burn book.
Yessi looked up in the mirror her eyes meeting Ximena’s in the reflection as she put her toothbrush away, “Santiago Fernandez.. I’m trying to avoid that infuriating pendejo I had a heart on for as a Sophomore.”
Yessi replied rolling her eyes a quiet chuckle leaving her lips as she faced Ximena, “There’s no way I didn’t tell you about him, I couldn’t shut up about that cabrón back then.”
If there was ever a record scratch freeze frame moment, this was it. Luckily for Ximena her poker face was as good as her tongue. The name Santiago Fernandez played on repeat in her mind. A lump formed in the back of her throat and proceeded to get heavier as it worked it’s way down to her stomach. The rest of Yessi’s words were drowned out and instead replaced with the sound of her heartbeat. They sounded like drums in her ears. ”Hijueputa malparida! No puede ser. No no no no. Fuck!”
her mind trying to put out the fires spreading through her brain. It wouldn’t take long for Yessi to realize Ximena wasn’t paying attention to her.
The silence from Ximena was all too telling. Much to the dismay of Ximena, Yessi had seen through that poker face bullshit she tried to pull one too many times. With pursed lips, eyes narrowed in suspicion and with an expectantly raised eyebrow Yessi went on the offensive, “Cat got your tongue? Okay, well it’s obvious you know who I’m talking about. Did something bad happen between you? Was he an asshole or something, cause he’s known for that?””Fuck”
the two really had spent too much time together. Of course, she should have know she wouldn’t be able to hide anything from Yessi. There was no easy way for Ximena to explain to Yessi what had happened so she hoped the honest truth would set her free. “Pues...I slept with him. But I didn’t know! You have to believe me! It was a one-time thing. I’ll answer any questions you have. Discúlpame!”
Ximena pleaded as her voice started to crack.
The moments after Ximena’s truth had been spilled out in the bathroom were practically a blur. Yessi felt the tension in her trained muscles, the pivot of her right foot, the clench of her fist and the sting as her knuckle kissed the side of the Colombian’s face. Only the look of shock on Ximena’s face washed away the anger enough for Yessi to process what had just happened. Those Jade green eyes burned into Ximena’s brown ones, “I hope that fucking hurt.”
Yessi turned her back and slammed the bathroom door shut as she stomped off to her room.

The roar of the custom McLaren being pushed to its limits was on replay in Astraia’s mind, acting as a sort of fuel for the fire that burned within her throughout the rest of the morning.
The half-hour or so she spent in the office waiting for Aurelio to appear was enough time to gather that something different
was happening today. From the erratic bustling of faintly familiar teachers, and the frequent grumbles and sighs of the office admins, it was evident that today had been derailed for them as well. Great, at least everyone is experiencing the case of the Monday’s.
The thought was brief as no sooner had her stupid brother finally showed his face than they
she was getting a firm explanation about their expectations while being back in Florida. Yessi couldn’t find it in her to care much about the smart play from her dad and zoned out for much of the remaining formalities.Well, until the mention of the event that had all those teachers wildly going about their mornings. “... right so that’s everything, please go ahead and go to the auditorium for the assembly.” “An assembly? On a Monday, can’t we just skip it, I’d rather figure out where my classes are an-“ “No, this is a requirement for all seniors, the actions occurring at Homecoming were quite horrendous and need to be addressed.” “Riiight.. but this is our first day back, why do I need to attend an assembly about an event I didn’t attend?” “Considering the things you were up to in South Korea I-“ “Excuse me?”
The anger she had been slowly working on pushing away came in a strong blast forcing her out of her seat, Aurelio’s hand around her wrist was the only thing stopping her from crossing a line that’d surely
have her kicked out of the family.“Yes, non qui. Lascia andare, c’mon let’s go.”
Chalk it up to their supernatural twin connection, or the attention to detail Aurelio paid, but he never missed a beat when it came to Astraia, especially her outbursts. “I believe the assembly will provide you with practical and relevant information. I look forward to seeing your success here at King’s.”
The Dean’s voice was like nails on a chalkboard to Yessi as she stomped out of the office and begrudgingly to her doom
Astraia barely registered her brother’s arm around her shoulder as the two of them entered late. The few eyes that looked their way quickly went back to the center of the room as if licked by the fires in the Spanish girl’s eyes. “Congratulations to both.”
The applause and cheers from the seated seniors sent those fiery green eyes to the main stage and grazed over the face of the principal, and Aurelio’s red-headed princess to land on- ...I slept with him... Fuck me. Mio dios, por que me odias?
With the information from the morning evolving into a scene in her head, she would much have rather punched his stupidly handsome face (like she had Ximena) than to just stare at him. Though luckily for him she couldn't, so... with their eyes still locked she settled on sending him an aggressive as possible silent ‘fuck you’ via a dainty middle finger in the air and a medusa-esque glare. Aurelio’s chuckle cracked the angry expression on her face as she snapped at him and yanked him down beside her just as the impromptu main event of the morning started up.
Like Aurelio Yessi turned her attention to her phone, though it was more of an attempt to distract herself from the swirl of conflicting thoughts pulling her emotions every which way. Annoyingly enough, the one thing she couldn’t get off her mind was how in the hell bebe
had managed to get even hotter
. What the hell was in the water here?
When the assembly was finished, Yessi waited not even a moment to get the fuck out of that room. Storming out of the auditorium doors she faintly heard Reli’s voice but kept it pushing forward, passing the cafeteria and the office before bursting out of the school and into the fresh Florida air. “Alright, Gym time.”
