I avoided his gaze as he slid off his boots on the entry rug and hung his coat on the peg. I pulled the sugar and powdered creamer out of the cabinet as the coffee finished brewing. Hey, I’d been lucky we’d had eggs here since Mom had been up with Gus and April a couple weeks ago. Coffee? I asked without looking at him, stretching on tiptoes and still unable to reach the cups.
Don’t get me wrong, she looks pretty tonight, but she’s still a tad too unassuming, with that I require dinner, a drink, and long-term commitment before I’ll let you fuck me vibe, despite her efforts to the contrary—despite her obvious attempt to look sexy.It’s my only virtue, I admit, setting down the red cup I was handed on my way into the house tonight.
If I’m going to be playing matchmaker—correction: if I’m going to be her hairy godmother—I’ll need to face this whole thing sober.If you thought the idiots who lived and partied here were annoying sober, imagine how annoying they are when they’re drunk.Though they’d be easier to tolerate if I got piss-ass drunk along with them.
Half the time, I want to plant my fist right into the faces of a majority of these dickless morons, so I need all the sobriety and inhibition I can manage.I can’t believe I’m trying to set Teddy up with one of these douchebags; it’s such a shitty thing for me to do, knowing what I know about them. Take Ben Salter, for example—the creep is almost flunking half his classes, only able to maintain his enrollment status by sleeping with any and every TA who will fuck him.
And Derek Lawson? Last year he was on meds for the various STDs he claims originated from public toilet seats. Right. Sure.
Another two are spoiled, pompous, trust fund babies.What. In. The. Fuck? I shout, my eyes flying open as I glare back and forth between Finnley’s shocked face and the back of Phina’s head.
That memory can’t be real. There’s no fucking way it’s real.I think about fucking her in the locker room and how familiar she felt and how I just knew I’d been inside of her before, but I thought I was just out of my mind wanting her so much.
Jesus Christ, what the fuck have I done?Phina whirls around on her stool and jams her finger into my chest and tells me I suck. I have to agree with her at this point, but all I can do is yank her towards me and ask the same question again because none of this makes any fucking sense.
