******* Picture of Josh on the side!! ********
I felt my hand clench into a fist, I was seriously going to kill him. There was no way he was getting anywhere near my girl again, not a chance in hell that I was losing her to this waste of space. I tightened my jaw, I didn’t want to say anything that would make me look bad in front of Rosie, if I killed the father of her child I’m pretty sure that would constitute the end of our relationship.
He smirked at me, probably seeing how his words affected me. The way I saw it, I had two options. One, smile and nod and wish him good luck, then do everything in my power to make sure I won the ‘competition’. Two, drop Rosie home, follow this guy back to his apartment, slip a bag over his head, drive him out to some dirt track and execute him. Then all I would have to worry about was where to bury the body.
Both options had their pro’s and con’s.
I was still weighing my options when he spoke. “So then Neil, why don’t you just run along and find yourself someone with less baggage. I’ll take care of Bunny and see that she gets to bed safely,” he stated, raising one eyebrow at me suggestively.
I hated the fact that he still used a pet name for her, it didn’t matter that she obviously hated it, it bugged the life out of me. “It’s Nate,” I all but growled. “And I can take my girlfriend home and make sure she gets to bed, but thanks for the offer.”
His eyes narrowed as he took in what I said. It obviously really bothered him that she was with someone else. I guess he was used to her being single, seeing her with someone else must be really hard for him. A guy like Josh probably always thought of her as his fall back, like he’d get back with her at some point down the line after he’d had his fill of screwing anything that moved. Too late now assh0le, I’ve ruined your plan!
“Just back off!” he growled, stepping closer to me, his face angry.
My body was wanting to respond, I wanted to grab the nearest chair and smash it over his head. Cool down Nate, keep calm!
I opened my mouth to say something but I spotted Rosie from the corner of my eye, she was walking back towards me, a curious and nervous expression on her face. I smiled reassuringly and stepped back, putting some space between me and Josh, pretending that we were getting along.
“Hey, Stripes,” I greeted her with a forced smile as she stepped to my side. She smelt strongly of beer and I couldn’t help but laugh. “You smell great,” I teased, smirking at her.
She laughed and scrunched up her nose as she pressed herself to me. “I know, every guys wet dream, a girl who reeks of beer,” she agreed, playing along.
I leaned in closer to her, “Definitely my wet dream,” I stated, only half joking. I know, I know, I’m weird, so shoot me!
She grinned and bumped her hip on mine as she turned back to Josh, I noticed with some satisfaction that he wasn’t hiding his jealousy very well. He was glaring at me, his jaw tight, his posture ridged and angry. I smirked at him as I pulled her closer to my side again. Take that you little bitch!
“How’s your mom, Josh? I haven’t seen her in a while. She doing ok?” Rosie asked, her voice light and friendly, she was obviously fond of his mom, I could tell by her tone.
He smiled, “Yeah she’s good. She asks about you all the time,” he said, looking at her softly.
Rosie smiled, “I’ll have to give her a call, see if she wants to meet up for coffee or something. I haven’t had any new recipes for a while, DJ and I are getting bored of eating the same old food,” she laughed.
He grinned, “Why don’t you both come round for dinner tomorrow or something? I’ll call her in the morning and tell her to cook for two extras. I’m sure she’d love that,” he suggested.
