Light broke through my curtains and I groaned.
No. I do not want to get up.
"What the-" I shot up and immediately pain went through my head. I grasped it with my hand and peered in to the light. There was a guy leaning on the door frame across the room. "Who the hell are you?"
"Kay." He smiled.
"Uh, no offence Kay but I don't remember you, and I have a girlfriend. I'm not straight and I really don't-"
"Woah Cara, slow down. It's me. Lady Lush?" He grinned.
"Oh." I stared. Now he mentioned it, I could see it. "But why-?"
"Your friends are in your lounge. We all came back here last night, or should I say this morning? Do you remember?"
"Funnily enough, I don't remember much."
"Yeah, you pretty much went to town after Anna left. That's partly my fault I'm afraid."
"Mmm." I rubbed my eyes blearily. "No offence Kay, but why are you in my room?"
"You were crying a lot. Liam and me got you in here, Ali got you in to your pjs and then we all crashed. I came in this morning to check you hadn't thrown up or anything."
"Are you ok?"
"Aside from my banging headache?"
"I meant the crying."
"Oh." I frowned and hauled myself out of bed. "Yeah sure... why did I say anything?"
"Not really. It may have been something about a... Sam?"
"My girlfriend." I explained. "Anything else?"
"No." He gave me a reassuring look. "You know you should talk to your friends if there's something wrong."
"There's nothing wrong."
He shrugged and held his hands up.
"Question." I said, rubbing my eyes again. "How are you dressed?" He was wearing men's jeans and a white t-shirt.
"I get changed at the club. You think I'm going to walk home at night dressed like I was? I'd get killed." He shrugged. "Unfortunately, that's the world we live in today. So, shall I make you breakfast?"
"I should probably do that... it's my place after all."
I wasn't sure how I felt about him being there, especially when I couldn't actually see the others and I didn't know him.
"Am I making you uncomfortable? Sorry." He said looking hurt and standing up properly as I climbed unsteadily out of bed. "Sometimes I do that. I wouldn't have stayed but Liam wouldn't let me go home on my own." He smiled embarrassed.
"Crushing?" I asked as I grabbed some joggers and a jumper to change in to, along with a fresh pair of pants.
"Just a little. He's such a... man." He simpered.
"You're not doing too bad on that part yourself." I replied, eyeing his muscles.
"Can't wear a dress and heels without being able to defend yourself." He shrugged. "I'll let you get dressed." With that he'd disappeared and I was left to get ready. I found my phone and plugged it in since it had died, and went to make breakfast for people.
"I can see why Sam calls you her housewife." Lexi grinned as she wolfed down a bacon butty. "This is a damn good bacon sandwich."
"Thanks." I smiled.
"So what's Sam like?" Kay asked, sipping at a coffee and tearing his eyes off Liam who had decided to spend breakfast shirtless. He had apparently slept like that too. "Is she hot?"I smiled and went to get the photo of her and I on holiday from the kitchen shelf. I'd had it framed for her return. I placed it in front of Kay and then took up my mug of tea to have another gulp. "Woah. Nice choice girl." He winked and I giggled.
"Yeah she's ok." Lexi shrugged jokingly. "Not as good as that sandwich though. Are there any more?" She peered over at the stove.
"Not for someone who thinks Sam isn't better than a bacon cob."
"Cob? What's a cob?"
"Fine bacon butty."
"Exactly. Weird girl. Fine, Sam is a little better than a bacon butty. Now gimme."
"You have no manners." Myra scolded.
"Whatcha gonna do? Spank me?" Lexi wiggled her eyebrows and I blushed, realising this was what Sam and I sounded like. Sam... she hadn't called me back. Or maybe she had... my phone had died!
"Be back in a sec." I said and slipped out of the kitchen and in to the bedroom to get my phone and charger. Three missed calls. "Crap."
I pressed call but it went straight to voicemail and I groaned. Double crap.
"Cara! The bacon will burn!"
I cursed and ran back in to the kitchen, plugging my phone in there.
"What's up with you sad sack?" Liam asked.
"I missed three calls from Sam and her phone's going to voicemail."
I saw Lexi and Myra glance at each other and then quickly lower their heads to their drinks. Frowning I saw to the bacon as Liam tried to explain to me that she was probably in a meeting... yada yada yada...
"Where are the others?" I asked.
"Well, Ali and Jak went home after seeing to you." Liam said. "I think they wanted some privacy. Callum walked his new girl home." He winked. "And Megan went not long after Anna buggered off and left everyone."
"Yeah. Why did she leave anyway?"
"I don't know. She just went. I can't remember." I groaned. "My head hurts."
"Take some paracetamol."
"I did." I complained.
"Well then stop moaning and drink your tea."
I stuck my tongue out at him and everyone laughed.
"So I'll see you later?" Kay said as he threw on a leather jacket. He looked like a model and for a moment I just stared at him.
"Oh yeah! The audition." Liam said, coming up to the door. "Can't wait."
"Yeah." I groaned.
"Lots of water hon." Kay winked. "Great meeting you, I can't wait to hear you sing."
"Thanks." I smiled.
"I'll walk with you." Liam offered. Kay grinned and nodded. They both left and I stared after them. Oh. My. God. Does Liam even notice what a HUGE crush Kay has on him? Jesus.
"Right, we're off too." Lexi said, pulling me in to a hug. "See you soon C."
"See you Lexi. Thanks for the great night."
"Thanks for the bacon." She winked.
"Bye Cara." Myra smiled, hugging me.
As soon as they'd all gone I let a sigh of relief out and went to shower. I would not be drinking that much ever again. Ever. I felt sick, and judging by the killer of a headache and the stomach pains, it had been a stupid idea when I was ill anyway. As the shower washed away the stink of the night I hoped that Sam would call back. I hoped that she'd forgiven me for my Kelly moment.
