Maxxie came back after a while with a room key and the two of us moved to it, only stopping once because I felt like I was going to puke again. The second my head hit the pillow I was out like a light but after a while I started drifting in and out of sleep. At least, I think I did. I don’t know, maybe I was dreaming. By the time I woke up, it was nearly midday and Maxxie was half asleep on the other bed.
"Um, Maxxie?" I said quietly, not really wanting to wake him completely.
"Everything" I said, biting my lip as my cheeks flashed pink.
He laughed slightly. "Any time you want me to come fuck everything up again, you know where I am"
I smiled a little and looked around the room, not sure what to say. Despite how drunk I was I remember quite clearly telling him I liked him. And I remember even clearer kissing him.
"Feeling better?" he asked.
"Yeah, pretty much"
"Good," he smiled.
I still didn’t know what to say. What do you say when you’re straight and you kissed your brother’s boyfriend cause you think you might love him but you’re not sure because your brain keeps telling you you shouldn’t cause you’re both guys? "I, uh, I think I'm gonna go see Caleb..."
I got to the door and turned back round to face Maxxie. "You're welcome to come with. Unless... I mean, unless you want me to stay here"
He stood up and walked over to me. Why did I suddenly feel nervous? He stood in front of me, hesitating, before leaning over and kissing me. I froze. Shit, did he like me back or was this just ‘my boyfriend broke my heart, I need pity sex’?
Maxxie pulled back and blushed. "Sorry."
I looked at my feet and frowned a little. I didn’t know what to think. I mean, I think I like him but it still just feels too weird.
"Sorry... I shouldn't have-" he said, turning to walk to the bathroom but I grabbed his hand, making him turn back.
"This is weird for me but..." I hesitated a second before kissing him, ignoring my brain when he kissed back. I pulled back after a while and bit my lip.
"I like you too, Hadley," he said, resting his forehead against mine, "I shouldn't, but I do."
I chuckled a little. "Why shouldn't you?"
"Well, I'm supposed to be fixing my relationship with your brother, not making out with you in a motel room," he said with a smile.
"I think he made it clear last night he doesn't want it fixed" I mumbled and he slid an arm around my waist.
I sighed and he pecked me on the lips. "I need a shower." He said, pulling back.
I nodded, resisting the urge to bite my lip. Stop it, that’s Cayden’s thing, not yours. "I'm gonna go say hi to Caleb"
I flashed him a smile, which he mirrored before slipping outside and walking to Caleb and Alex’s room.
"Please don't be having sex" I said as I knocked on the door.
"You're safe." Alex said as he opened the door and let me in.
I’d barely stepped into the room when Caleb jump hugged me, making me stumble back a little.
"You've recovered from last night, then?" Alex asked with a smile and I nodded.
"I don't know what set me off, I guess it was all the shouting. Gayleb, get off me"
Alex pulled Caleb off me who pouted a little. "Yeah, well hopefully we can sort out this mess without much more shouting."
"You clearly don't know his family"
"They'll shout. A lot. Mom'll start crying. Dad'll just sit there in silence. Can't I just leave? I'm not involved in any of this"
Alex shrugged. "No one's stopping you."
Caleb grinned. "You can come stay with me"
Alex pouted. "But then that means no sex for me."
"You wouldn't be getting sex even if you were staying at my place, bitch"
"I have this room for the rest of the week," Alex said, smiling innocently.
I threw my hands over my ears and rolled my ears. What? I don’t want to hear them being all mushy again.
"I've gotta go home some time, Mom's getting suspicious"
"I never said you couldn't go home. I meant you can come and visit me."
"I thought yesterday was just a visit" Caleb smirk and Alex pouted.
"I want more visits"
Caleb rolled his eyes. "Fine"
"Can I uncover my ears yet?" I asked, even though I’d heard the whole thing, and Alex laughed.
"I don't wanna hear you guys planning when to have sex"
"You love it" Caleb said cheerfully. I really don’t, Caleb.
"I wouldn't bitch about it if you were planning when to meet up with Max to have sex, so shush." Alex said and I stayed silent. Jeez, Hadley, were you expecting Maxxie to all of a sudden lose interest in sex or something?
Caleb grinned. "Hadley and Maxxie sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-"
"Shut up" I said, jumping on Caleb with a laugh and trying to fight back a blush.
Alex laughed. "You're so into him," he said with a grin.
"Ow, Hadley's hurting me"
"Am not, you pansy"
For some reason, Alex’s eyes widened. "You are, aren't you?" he said laughing slightly "I was joking."
