“Wake up, sleeping beauty!” Evelyn throws a pillow at me and then drags me by my feet off the bed when I refuse to move.
“Ohhhhh….leave me alone Evey..” I fake a yawn. Because, I’m very much wide awake! And know too well about why Evelyn is so hell bent on waking me up! “Eveyyyy!” I groan when my cheek slide to the floor and I crawl back to my bed, hugging my pillow.
I hear Evelyn walks out of my cabin and I whisper a little ‘YAY!’ and went back to close my eyes. We never know with Evelyn. She can be back at any moment. And indeed, I hear my door open again. I open my one eye to peep at Evelyn, but see a pair of male shoes. Adam??
I open my eyes and raise my head to ask him what he wants to only get the shock of my life.
There, standing next to my bed, isn’t Adam at all. Much to my disappointment! It’s Ethan!!!!!
“You?!” I yell and stand on my bed in shock.
“I see that you decided to get out of that closet after all.” He smiles. “Good morning sweetheart!” He greets. I’m ignoring the sweetheart part!
“Awesome nightdress.” He mocks. Alright, so I’m wearing my Brother James’s shirt that I like to steal. Thinking of my brother, I haven’t seen that a**h** since aboard. He must be harassing some girl somewhere and may god help that poor girl! “Must be your brother’sright?”
“How d’you kn…Oh, don’t tell meI’ve told you that too!!” I ask, feeling angry at myself.
“Actually, you did! You told me a lot of things. You just love stealing your brother’s shirts, don’t you?” He smiles. “And I have to admit, I love that shirt on you.” What there to love about it? It’s old, and…Man!!! It's ultra short and since I’m standing on my bed, I could see my Mickey Mouse underwear. Going red, I could see that he noticed it too!!!
Sitting on my bed again, like a normal human being, I pull my cover on me. “What are you doing here?” I ask moodily.
“Evelyn told me you wouldn’t get out of bed. So, I came.”
“Well, as you can see, I was sleeping.” I say, clearly hinting him that I don’t want to meet him. And guess what??? The best part is that I still don’t remember the sex between us. When I woke in the hotel room I was naked, but I didn’t remember anything about making love to him!! Yeah, I know! I’m a sl*t!
“Oh, but I don’t mind getting under the cover with you. We did it before.” He says and I start to blush.
“I’ll just remove my shoes…” He starts removing his shoes and me, I start to panic. Surely, he’s just joking!
“DON’T!!!!” I scream. “Don’t don’t don’t!!” Just then, much to my appreciation, my brother decides to enter my cabin, “Hey, Aurél…….what the heck??” James asks when he saw Ethan sitting on my bed.
“Didn’t know you were this fast sister!” He mocks. I’m going to pretend as if I didn’t hear that part, because I’m so bloody happy to see my brother. Okay, to be precise, I’m happier to have someone else in the room beside Ethan. I jump off my bed and hug my brother tight around his waist. Yeah, that much relieve, I am!
“Oh, I love you, I love you, I love you…”
“Get off me you freak!” And when I refuse to move, he adds, “Okay, what do you want?” Man! My brother knows me too much. He knows very well that the only reason I’ll ever say that I love him is when a) I want something from him, and b ) When I’m dead serious (which is quite rarely).
“I want you to stay right here with me.” This way, Ethan wouldn’t dare to do anything! Not that I was expecting him too. He was just trying to mess with my head.
“I’ve got better things to do than babysit you sis!”
“You’re my BIG brother! It’syour DUTY to protect me!”
“I’m elder than you by ONLY ten minutes!” He retorts. Yeah, James is my twin brother! Which sucks! I mean, I was in the same class with him since kindergarten! Same for high school and university, because that jacka** decided he want to do Journalism too. And guess what?? He works in the same agency with me! Go on, have a good laugh!“And from what do I have to protect you anyway?? And who’s that dude?” He asks looking at Ethan.
“I’m Ethan Spencer.” Ethan introduces and went to shake James’s hand.
“You know??” James asks quizzically. Guess I must have talk about my brother too. I bleakly remember rambling a lot to him in the pub. I don’t remember quite much what I said. But, apparently, he, he remembers, though he was drunk. Man! He must also remember if we did…um…it or not. Sex, I mean!
“Yeah, Aurélie told me a lots of things about you…I’m her husband.” Oh, great! Just perfect, Ethan! I turn my head to look at James and I could see that he was going…kind of…green.
“Nice Joke!” I said and crack a fake laugh, and when he turns to look at me, my shock face reveals it all.
“Oh..God..” He chokes. “I need to sit…”
“God, no! Aurél, what’s going on?” I guess I’ll have to tell him eventually.
