I woke up Sunday morning ready for a lazy day, especially after a weekend of partying. After breakfast I went and worked out a little bit in the gym. I then put on a bikini and headed to the hot tub, it was time to soak and relax. Soon I could tell that someone was getting in the hot tub with me and I peeked from under my eyelids and saw Jeff moving to sit down next to me. As he sat down he swooped me into his lap and wrapped his strong arms around me and gave me a light kiss on the lips. I smiled at him and laid my head on to his shoulder and just let him hold me as the hot, bubbling water soothed my muscles.
As Jeff sat there holding me I couldn’t help to find comfort in his arms. I hadn’t spoken to Lance since he let that slut Mandy talk crap to me. It still set me on edge to know Jeff defended me more then my own twin brother. Jeff wasn’t even my boyfriend. What is wrong with Lance? I hate when Lance and I are not talking. It seems like lately we don’t talk a lot. I want my brother back.
My thoughts traveled back to Jeff and I felt like Jeff was the air I breathed. I wasn’t sure what my life would be like if I ever lost him and I really didn’t want to find out. I often wonder how strongly Jeff feels about me. After all I am the first serious relationship he has attempted. Did he feel the same powerful emotions I did?
“What are you thinking about so hard?” Jeff whispered into my ear. I didn’t know how to respond to that so I gave him a small smile. I turned so that I was straddling Jeff and looked him dead in the eye when I finally replied, “I was just thinking about how good I feel when I am with you.” He gave me this sexy smirk and kissed me on the lips and said “Oh yeah?” I gave out a small laugh then began kissing him and it wasn’t long until he was kissing me back. His kisses began trailing down my neck and I felt myself moan as he kissed over my sensitive spot. He nipped gently at my neck. His lips trailed back to mine and we begin kissing each other again. This was how my brother caught us in the hot tub. I could see a look that was a mixture of amusement and disgust. I try to see it from Lance’s perspective his “little” sister and his best friend making out is probably a little uncomfortable.
Lance looked a little rough; I guess we all partied hard this weekend. Some of us more then others. I quickly shifted myself around in Jeff’s lap as Lance joined us in the hot tub. I looked at Lance and waited to see if he was going to say anything. I found him looking back at me and we just stared at one another. Finally Lance said “Lacey I am sorry for being a dick to you this weekend” I smiled at him and replied “Lance you know I always forgive you but what is going on with you?” I saw him thinking and it looked pretty serious as I waited for him to say more. When he spoke again I was surprised at all that came out. He was having a hard time dealing with me and Jeff being together, he was sick of Ken always harassing me or the guys, he was in fact upset to see his twin sister growing up and becoming actively involved with things. I tried to understand yet maintain that I was going to do what I wanted to do.
That evening my dad called me into his office and I could tell he had something on his mind. My dad had been investigating Ken and had found some information that disturbed him on several levels. First he found out that Ken had a cousin that was part of our rival gangs ranks, which meant he could possibly get some help in coming after the boys. The second thing he found out was that Ken had a very unhealthy obsession with me. My dad had Marco beefing up my security for when I left the house and now my dad wasn’t sure it was a good thing to let me handle Ken on my own. I couldn’t help to feel disappointed but I know my dad was only looking out for me.
“I wish I could just put a hit out on him. But he is only an 18 year old kid a senior in high school.” “Dad? What are we going to do?” “Lacey I am working on it. I have a meeting with the boys later tonight and I want you in on the meeting so we can discuss everything. This situation is getting out of hand”. I spent an hour in my dad’s office talking about the Ken situation.
As I walked back to my bedroom I began thinking. I couldn’t figure it out. Ken has hated that my dad had criminal connections it had always made him uncomfortable. Then all of a sudden it was like he flipped and was intent on making a name for himself. He had wanted to have bragging rights of taking my virginity; he became verbally and physically abusive. What had happened? Somehow I had to figure out what caused his thinking to change. The biggest thing my dad wanted to get across to me was that I wasn’t to go anywhere in public by myself. I was always to have Marco or another one of the guys with me at all times. Dad didn’t want me to trust anyone that wasn’t part of the “family” because Ken was like a ticking time bomb.
That night Jeff and I were laying in my bed just snuggled with each other when I began talking to him about the Ken situation. After 2 hours spent with my dad and the boys this evening, the only thing I knew for sure is that I wouldn’t go anywhere alone when I left my house. Marco was going to be even closer to my side then before and if he wasn’t there then one of the boys were going to be there. They were almost cute in their overprotective caveman behavior. It was also decided to find one of Ken’s buddies that we could get information out of and we were going to find one of the gang girls to begin seducing Ken and get close to him. I decided I didn’t want to think about Ken anymore and told Jeff as much. He just pulled me into his chest and held me tight until I felt myself drift off to sleep.
The next morning arriving at school was crazy. First, I was wedged between Lance and Jeff in the back of Marco’s Escalade. I couldn’t step foot out of the vehicle until Marco, Steve, Brian and Connor had made sure it was safe for me to do so. Lance then got out of the vehicle and walked to the other side and stood while Jeff got out then Jeff reached for my hand and pulled me out and into his chest. The guys then took a formation where Marco and Steve walked ahead of us. I had Jeff on one side with an arm across my shoulders. Lance was on the other side walking close while the rest of the guys walked behind us. It obvious I was being protected. I think it was a little overboard.
I was eager to see Beth and Amy this morning. I had texted both of them to meet by my locker and as I walked I could see them talking as I approached. I quickly filled them in on the crap with Ken and how I was getting frustrated. Never once did Jeff leave my side, I almost felt like he was a jealous lover. The rest of the guys were flanked around us girls and we were hidden from view of the other students.
The morning passed by extremely slow it was one boring class after another and never once did I not have Marco and at least on other guy with me. I wondered to myself what would happen when I went to the bathroom before lunch. I found myself laughing as I waited outside the restroom with Beth and Amy while Marco went in and made sure it was clear for us to go in. Marco and Connor were waiting outside the bathroom to walk us to the cafeteria.
In the bathroom the girls and I talked about this crazy mess with Ken and the guard dogs I was now saddled with. It wasn’t like I had anything they were keeping me from doing but I think my dad may have just gone a little overboard with my protection detail. Beth then changed the subject by asking me about Jeff. I sighed. “It really sucks sometimes because I love him but I am trying to be all mature and do this his way because let’s face it he doesn’t do girlfriends.” Beth was the first to comment “Well he may not be calling you his girlfriend but he sure is treating you like it. He has made sure everyone knows that you are his girl.” Amy then chimed in “Not to mention you don’t see him making out with random girls in the school hallways anymore” I smiled as I thought about this, maybe I was worming my way into Jeff’s heart but I wasn’t going to get over excited just yet.
We all had just walked into the lunchroom and were making our way to the lunch line to grab food when our path was suddenly blocked. I looked to see Ken and a few of his friend standing there. Ken’s eyes were traveling up and down my body making me want to shudder with disgust but I would not give him the satisfaction of any type of reaction from me. I prayed that Ken wouldn’t do anything stupid. Marco and Connor began moving me and the girls behind them and almost immediately they were joined by Jeff, Lance, Steve and Brian. I was really hoping no one did anything stupid.
The guys were in a silent standoff. Neither side was talking or moving. The cafeteria had gone eerily quiet. All eyes were trained on the group of guys wondering what was going to happen next. I found my eyes darting around the two groups of guys nervously anticipating what was about to happen. I was very thankful when I saw the football coach making his way to break up the little conflict. I knew that it would be best so that really neither side was backing down yet. They guys didn’t need to try and settle this in school it was too public. The time was coming where it would be an all out battle but the time and place was not now.
I was thankful when the football coach took Ken and his friends off under the pretense of needing to talk game strategy with them. The guys had gone back to our table to sit down. Marco walked me and the girls through the food line and paid for our lunches. I had just decided to grab a water because my stomach was a nervous ball of energy and I was afraid to eat. I was walking to an empty seat at our table when I felt my hand grabbed and I was yanked gently back and found myself sitting in Jeff’s lap. He nuzzled into my neck and I felt his breath fan across my ear as he whispered “Sit with me to keep me from going after that prick” I smiled at him and gave him a light kiss on the cheek and snuggled in to his chest and let him hold me while he talked to the guys. I spent most of lunch quiet I spoke to Beth and Amy some. The guys were talking non-stop about the time when they could finally do something about Ken.
December The last two months have passed relatively quiet. Ken has backed off from the in your face attacks but I can tell by the way he looks at us that he is not done. Its almost like he is planning something big. Surprisingly Jeff and I are still together but not official. This is has reached ridiculous on all levels. I don’t know why we can’t be official we have been together for almost four months now. Stupid mafia boy!
We are on Christmas break from school and decided to go to my dad’s hunting lodge for a few days to bring in the New Year. This is just the inner circle and their plus one. The guys coming were Lance, Jeff, Steve and Brian. The girls were Beth, Amy, Mandy, the slut, and myself. I couldn’t believe it when Lance told me he was bringing Mandy with him. I hope she keeps her mouth shut around me because I would hate to beat up my brother’s bed warmer for the trip. Steve and Amy were already showing signs of hooking up for the trip and something told me Beth and Brian would also be hooking up. So we were headed out this morning in two cars for five days in the woods to party.
Lance, Steve, Amy and Mandy were in one car and the rest of us piled into the second vehicle. I was thankful I didn’t have to spend the next four hours in a car with Mandy. Beth and Brian were busy whispering to each other in the back seat and I was looking out the window thinking about Jeff. Will I ever stop being so infatuated with him? Sadly I think the answer is no, I am still just as crazy about him as I was at the beginning of summer.
I went back to thinking about our relationship status I couldn’t help myself I just want us to be official not this bullshit of being together exclusively but not being boyfriend and girlfriend. I really wasn’t sure if I could keep doing this no strings attached it was killing me to be with him like this. I can’t help that I fell in love its not like I meant too it just happened. I don’t know why I can’t accept that Jeff will never love me.
I was startled out of my thoughts when I felt a hand on my thigh and I looked over to see Jeff smirking at me before putting his eyes back on the road. “Lacey you where off in another world again. What are you thinking about so hard of there” Well this is going to be fun to answer I think to myself I can’t very well tell him the truth. “Uh… I was thinking about not killing Mandy over the next five days.” Too bad it came out sounding more like a question then a statement. I saw Jeff glance at me again before he chuckled “I am sure that is part of what was going on in that mind of yours but that’s not all, so want to tell me what else you were thinking about?” So much for getting out of answering his question, I can’t tell him what is really on my mind. “Jeff I will tell you everything later when we are alone. I promise.” He smiled at me and said, “Okay but don’t think I will forget that you owe me an answer” I knew he wouldn’t forget that boy can annoy the crap out of me when he wants too. Our friends hate it when we fight because we are mean to each other. Not that we abuse each other or anything like that, no what happens is two very stubborn people with mafia powers have a standoff like two bulls fixing to butt heads. It’s never pretty.
Half way to the cabin we stopped at roadside café to eat lunch. The eight of us made our way in and were seated at two tables that were pushed together for us. A waitress came around taking our drink order to start off and she looked to be around 19 and I caught her checking out the four guys at the table. Her eyes lingered a little too long on Lance and Jeff. I was ready to smack her but some how I kept my cool. However by the time she brought back our drinks Mandy had been running her mouth non stop and I was past annoyed so when the waitress leaned over Jeff and brushed her breast against his arm I lost it. I bit out to her “I would appreciate it if you could stop flirting and just take our food order” she of course had to reply “I don’t hear him telling me to back off” I started scooting my chair back but quickly was pulled to Jeff’s side. “Actually I would appreciate it if you would stop flirting with me and just do your job”, Jeff remarked calmly but coolly. I smirked at the waitress and she just shot me a nasty glare. She took our food order and now I was worried about her spitting in my food. Lance was looking at me funny before he finally spit out “Lacey I have never seen you jealous before its interesting.” “Jealous more like annoyed as fuck and trying not to lose my lunch before I even eat it” this caused the guys and girls all to laugh. We ate our lunch without further incident and no my food had not been spit in.
Another two hours on the road and we finally reached the cabin. I was so excited to be there and be able to relax. Jeff and I took our bags to my room while everyone else claimed their rooms. Yes, Lance and I each had our own room at the cabin decorated to fit our personalities. As soon as Jeff closed the door he roughly pulled me into him and planted his lips on mine. We kissed passionately until we were both out of breath. As we broke apart I asked him “What was that for?” He gave me a big grin “I have been wanting to do that since we had lunch your hot when your jealous.” I playfully punched him. We then set about unpacking and changing into comfortable clothes for hanging out in the living room for a few hours. However before we could leave the room Jeff stopped me “Lacey, I just want you to remember that we are exclusive there is no one else I promised you that when we started. I will not disrespect you.” I smiled at him softly “I know Jeff” then we shared a light kiss and started heading towards our friends. “Also I haven’t forgot you still have to tell me what you were thinking about in the car earlier” I thought maybe I lucked out and he forgot guess not.
The group had already started getting all our drinking supplies out and set up on the coffee table. I guess tonight is a get wasted at the cabin night. That was fine by me I really didn’t mind. I could use a drink. I don’t know why I was so up tight about things today. It wasn’t like me to be this stressed. Beth suggested we play a game of never have I ever to get us drunk faster and I found myself getting into the party mood.
One hour later the game was over but we were all wasted and laughing about some of the things we learned about each other while playing. So far I was even tolerating Mandy without too much trouble. However I must say I was getting a little disgusted by her and Lance having a heavy make out in front of me. I mean hell he is my brother like I want to see him getting his rocks off. Finally I had enough “Lance if you want to keep doing that take it to your room or I am going to fuck Jeff right here in front of you and everyone” He pulled away from Mandy so fast I am surprised he didn’t get whiplash. I laughed at the horrified look on his face. Of course Steve was just not going to let what I said go “dude go back to making out with Mandy I want to see your sister naked” I threw a pillow at Steve and I looked over at Jeff to see him grinning at me and motion for me to come to him. I made my way to where he was sitting on the couch and he pulled me into his lap. I was surprised to feel his friend was already excited. He whispered in my ear “you did that when you said those naughty things” I turned to face him and our lips met in a sensual kiss. We didn’t go overboard but it was heated enough that Beth made a comment about getting wet from watching us kiss. I snorted and said, “That’s gross Beth and I didn’t realize you were that easy”
Jeff soon asked me if I was ready to go to the bedroom with him. I didn’t say a word I just got up and took him by his hand and pulled him up to follow me. We went to my room shut and locked the door behind us and it wasn’t long before our clothes were off and we were on the bed. I have got to the point that I call what Jeff and I do making love because for me that’s what it is and I am not sure what it is for him.
The next few days passed quickly maybe it was because most of it was spent drinking. We did do some other things like go into town one night and had a fancy dinner. We went ice-skating another night and then we went to the movies. All in all things were going good with the trip. The strangest thing is Jeff had yet to push me to talk about my zone out in the car even though he would remind me a couple times a day I still owed him. I wonder if he was putting it off because he knew that I was going to be talking about our relationship. All though that was silly to think it’s not like he can read minds.
Finally our last night at the cabin came and it was New Year’s Eve. We had decided to just stay in and get our drink on at the cabin that way we stayed as safe as possible. We were drinking and dancing and talking having a good time. At one point Mandy began giving Lance a lap dance and it got very quiet in the room. I slowly got up and walked out of the room and went to the kitchen. I was leaning of the sink trying to keep my drink down when I felt arms snake around my waist. “I know my girl isn’t about to waste alcohol by throwing up?” “I just might if I can’t get the image of that girl lap dancing on my brother. It’s just creepy. I don’t care what he does I just don’t want to see it” Jeff let out a small laugh. “I can take your mind off of it. Its about an hour to midnight and I want to have my way with you one last time this year” That was cheesy but made me happy and I let him lead me to the bedroom. We finished about 15 minutes before midnight and I had just thrown one of his t-shirts on when I saw him digging around for something. I was curious to what he was doing but I silently watched. He seemed to find what he was looking for and made his way back to the bed. Jeff pulled me into his arms and held me close to him and nuzzled me behind my ear causing me to giggle. “Lacey I can’t believe that we are here together like this and would never have guessed this is where we would end up when we started messing around this summer” I agreed with him I thought I was just getting a one night stand to start out. “Me either Jeff. I never thought I would be with you like this” We kissed lightly and I noticed he was acting strange almost nervous and I wondered what was up with this boy. I don’t think he was breaking it off because he wasn’t acting like that at all. I could hear our friends begin counting down in the living room and Jeff and I were locked in an intense stare so many emotions flickering across both of our faces. As we heard the group cheer Happy New Year Jeff spoke “Lacey I have loved every moment with you these last few months and that’s why I want to make us official. Will you be my girlfriend?” As he said this I saw him bring a small ring box and a beautiful emerald and diamond ring was in it. He was looking at me and I realized I was taking to long to answer but I was so shocked and excited and did I mention shocked. I finally managed to whisper, “Yes!” And he slipped the ring on my finger and told me it was a token of what I meant to him and that this let everyone know I was taken. I kissed him hard on the lips then, I was consumed with need for him and one thing led to another and we made love for the first time in the New Year and for the first time as an official couple.
