Catching UpMature

Jade Sapphire

The moment everyone had stepped into the house and I knew Leon and I were alone, I turned around. He was grinning at me, that dorky grin of his, his arms folded across his chest.  It'd been such a long time since we'd seen each other but he looked exactly the same. The same messy blonde hair, tall as ever, and of course muscular. I remember how he used to brag about him being the strongest of his pack and I used to tell him off for that every single time; even though I knew that was the truth.

"Hello Jade."

And without giving him any warning, I threw myself at him. He staggered back, bumping into a tree at the sudden hug I'd given him. Laughing, he wrapped his arms around me.

"The hell with ya! Where have you been for all this time?" I said, giving him a crushing bear hug while at the same time punching him, if that was even possible.

"You know just, wolfing around," he replied with a smirk.

"Great excuse," I rolled my eyes at him then stepped back before he crushed my bones with his huge embrace.

"But nevertheless, it's great to see you again. You look different. You're more tall then I remembered and you cut your hair short. It used to be so long!"

I grinned at him, "I didn't exactly want to be known as the Rapunzel of our town."

He laughed then stepped closer to me, then put a hand under my chin and lifted it up so his face was only inches from mine.

"But your eyes...your eyes are as fascinating as ever."

I felt a blush spread through my cheeks then putting my hands on his chest, I pushed him away.

"And you're still the same boring flirt I knew two years back. You gotta get a life, Leon."

"I won't have one without you in it."

I snorted even though I felt myself go even more red. Seeing this, a look of accomplishment filled his face.

"Don't flatter yourself, Leon. You're not as charming as you think you ar-"

That was when we heard sudden yells coming from inside the house. It sounded like Billie shouting at the others. Taking hold of his hand, we ran towards the entrance of the house and headed to the living room. The moment we entered, I saw Ash's eyes narrow at the sight of us holding hands and his eyes filled with a pure hatred I'd never seen before. But that was the least of my concerns at the moment.

"What's going on?" I asked the others.

"Bille, she just blew up," Mike muttered.

"Yeah, that bitch is getting on my nerves," Sarah hissed.

I glared at her. Just like Leon was a good friend of mine, I considered Sarah my own sister and I loved her as much as I loved her brother But I did not like the tone of voice she was using. "Nice meeting you again too Sarah but incase you don't know, Billie's one of my friends and I don't appreciate you calling her that."

Then letting go of Leon's hand, I walked past them towards the room which I thought Billie might be in. Just as I passed Ash, I heard him mutter a message that could only be heard by me.

"Looks like you and Leon had a good time."

Shooting him a peircing glare, I pushed past him and headed to Billie's room, hoping to comfort her as much as I could.
