Katherine: Tense .... Awkward.Mature

I woke up on my bed, fully dressed, I smiled and snuggled into my duvet.

As I stood up, swaying a little, I noticed a few buttons of my shirt were undone; as though someone had begun to undress me but didn't in the end. Shrugging my shoulders, I slipped out of my clothes and shoved on a T-shirt and shorts; giving up on the idea of looking nice.

There was a light tap on my door.

'Come in.' I chimed, tying my knotted hair into plaits. The door was pushed open by Andrew and I smiled widely as he entered my room, he returned my smile with a smaller one.

'Have a nice time last night?' He asked with a hard edge to his voice, I cocked my head and narrowed my eyes.

'What's wrong?' I asked, sighing, I always knew when Drew was upset because he never quite met my eyes. He looked at me and shrugged, I rolled my eyes and pulled him to my bed; shoving him onto it.

He shuddered a little as I stood in front of him, my hands on my hips in a threatening manner. He pursed his lips for a second and I swayed back on forth on the balls of my feet as he rustled up an answer.

'Last night... I met with that girl...'

I felt my body freeze up and my breath caught. I don't know why I did it, I just... did. Those words seemed to make every single nerve in my body freeze and my heart stop. Maybe I should go to the doctor or something?

'Oh...' I sat myself down next to him and rested my head on his shoulder, patting his knee in what I hoped was a comforting manner. Drew froze and the relaxed, rested his own head on top of mine.

At that nice moment, Danny came barging into my bedroom. Every was perfectly still for a moment, Danny and Drew stared at eachother with some sort of hatred brewing in their eyes; but that wasn't right? Was it? Twins can't actually hate eachother, right?

Danny's eyes flicked to me and I stared back, blushing.

'Umm...' I began, both of my brothers turned their heads and I shivered at the creepiness of the ability to do stuff at the same time.

'Kat, breakfast is ready.' Danny smiled, ignoring Drew's presence completely.

'Oh, okay, let me just finish talking with Drew please,' I mumbled, nodding at him. Danny glared(?) at Drew for a second before storming out. I shuddered at the ferocity of Danny's bad mood. I wonder why he was so upset? Maybe he liked the girl Drew was with last night?

'It doesn't matter, Kat,' Drew began but I put a finger to his lips.

'Don't keep secrets from me...' I whispered, 'I swear I wont tell anyone.'

'Ah...' Drew's breath seemed to have become much more ragged than before, 'it really doesn't matter.'

'Tell me!' I hissed, as though if I spoke louder, everyone in the town would hear us.

I stared at Drew, then noticed his face was becoming achingly... wait? Achingly? Why was it achingly close to my own? Wasn't that my usual trail of thoughts when Jason was close to me? Not my brother! My heart thundered in my chest and my cheeks flushed a deep scarlet. Why was I getting all worked up...

'Kat! Breakfast!' I sharp voice from down stairs made us both jump, I blinked and stood up.

'I'm going for breakfast!' I said quickly, dashing from my room.

What the hell was going on back there? Surely he wasn't going to do what I thought he was...?

The End
