I sat in our small tree house waiting for Mr. always-late to show up so I can start cussing him. He has some balls to try and call my singing the equivalent of chipmunks in front of half the gym class.
He is so in for big time trouble!
Whats taking that little squirt so long! Probably hiding from me and my wrath. I grin at this thought as it pleases me but my grin fades as the clock ticks five past five. Five minutes late already! I sigh and put the ear-plugs and boom the volume to max.
Ed Sheeran is my new craze and I just can’t get enough of his music. I’ve been a sadist lately since I almost murdered the replay button on my old-fashioned music system last night. Poor thing!
I'm gonna pick up the pieces,
and build a lego house
when things go wrong we can knock it down
I sing along with the lyrics and close my eyes, pretending there is a huge crown in front of me, cheering for my awesomness! I stand up and grab the wooden branch and start singing like its the debut of my first concert.
I'm out of touch, I'm out of love
I'll pick you up when you're getting down
and of all these things I've done I think I love you better now
“Thank you, thank you all! Its been a pleasure singing for you tonight! Thank you!” I say and instead of a thunder of applause cheering me on, there is just one, only one sound of clapping hands….
This is so depressing!
“That was great Lexi!” I hear him say and I snap my eyes open looking at him first with plain horror at making myself look like a lunatic in front of him and then I glare, “You little dumb wit! You think this is good huh? What happened to the sounds-like-chipmunks!” I yell, venom dripping in my voice.
“AND you’re late!” I finished, “PLUS you tried to cut me in between you nincompoop!”
“A little too hyped up, are we today?” he mocked me, sliding his hands in his jeans pocket while his eyes twinkled with amusement and his stupid hot irresistible lips etched into an easy smirk.
“So what if I am!” I yelled and stomped around the floorboard.
“Take it easy babe, the floor might break. This thing isn’t exactly brand new you know” he said as he climbed up the ladder.
“So what!” I scream again.
“Calm down Dammit!” he hollers back and I turn to shoot him another glare but bang in his brick wall chest. Instead of pushing myself away I stay there, “I’m sorry I called you a moronic piece-of-stinking-fish with no balls today,” I muttered. Someone had to be the bigger person.
“Don’t be, I did call your voice a chipmunk. I had an inner meaning to that though. If only you would think coolly for once in your life” he said, putting his big arms around my tiny frame so I was completely engulfed in him like an amoeba taking in its tiny food.
“What hidden meaning?” I muttered.
“Chipmunk songs are famous aren’t they?”
“So, your voice will be famous too one day”
“Really?” I looked up at him my face immediately lighting up.
“Yeah”, he said as he looked down at me, clearly amused at my childish ways. What can I say? Everytime daddy had an appointment, I just couldn’t help put up an over-hyped mode on. All that anxiety had to go somewhere and Alex understood that and never questioned it.
It kept me at ease and I think that’s what he wanted for me.
“You’ll be a famous soccer player too and then one day when you have reached the final of FIFA, I’ll sing at the opening ceremony” I muttered.
“I would like that” he said and rubbed my back.
We stayed like that for a few moments till I muttered, “You’re being too nice to me today”
He chuckled and I moved a little under his rhythm, “You don’t like me being nice to you?”
“Its abnormal!” I said and pulled myself away, “Don’t treat me like something is wrong because when you do it, it makes it real! Tease me and get on my nerves like you usually do”, I huffed.
He smirked a little, “Don’t forget, you asked me too…”, he cooed.
Oh boy! Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea after all…..
“So someone got their nose rubbed in detention huh?” he cocked.
“Did not! I tripped!” I shot back.
“Suuureee, the story I heard was Lisa pinned your, I quote ‘bonny ass’ on the floor for having the audacity to sit next to her man in chemistry” he said.
