Awesome banner by the side made by Chawwlie. Tyler would be the one on top and Tyson the one below :D (perverts, I know what you're thinking xD)
The door slammed behind me and I nearly ran after Tyson as he headed to our room. Our mom was passed out on the couch, the remote control dangling from her wrist while the TV blasted some nonsense.
I sighed and watched as Tyson disappeared up the stairs and into our room. He’d been ignoring me since the kiss. After the other guys were done scaring the crap out of the other groups; we’d come together and laughed about it around a fire while roasting marshmallows. Finally, Tyson decided it was getting late and that we should all head home.
So we’d packed up our stuff and walked back to our individual houses; all this while, he’d been plain acting like I didn’t exist and it was getting on my nerves.
I decided to let him go while I go help my mother to bed.
“Mum?” I whispered, shaking her shoulder gently.
She moaned and snuggled into the couch, the remote dropping from her hand. I sighed again, hating to disturb her sleeping form but if she didn’t get up she was going to wake up with a nasty crank in her neck the next morning. I picked up the remote and switched off the TV then gently shook her again.
“Mum?” I whispered more firmly.
Her eyes snapped open and she looked confused for a moment before she sat up, yawned and stretched. She stood up without a word and shuffled off upstairs to her room. I giggled under my breath as I watched her go. One thing about my mum; if you woke her up in the middle of the night she tended to behave like a zombie.
I took a deep breath.
It was time to face my brother.
I walked upstairs and stood at our room door; just staring at it and wondering what I was going to say. The kiss was definitely a mistake because I didn’t plan it. It had just spontaneously happened! One minute he was on top of me and the next minute I was noticing how very plump and pink his lips were and I couldn’t help –
Tyler, watch your thoughts!
I took a deep breath. What happened was wrong and I wanted us to forget about it. I couldn’t stand it when Tyson ignored me. It literally tore me apart inside. So I made up my mind that what happened was just a spur of the moment thing; I wasn’t thinking properly, yup; seemed legit.
I gently opened the door and Tyson was preparing for bed. He was bringing out his night clothes from the wardrobe. I blushed for no apparent reason and stood by the door, shuffling my feet.
“Tyson…” I began nervously.
“Forget about it,” he muttered his voice stern.
I was a little hurt at his curt reply but I shrugged it off. Isn’t that what I wanted in the first place? I pretended it didn’t matter and shrugged. Now time to take off these goddamn heels. As I sat on my bed and kicked my heels off, much to my surprise, Tyson picked up his night clothes and walked into the bathroom, locking the door behind him.
I stared at the door for a full minute.
Tears pricked behind my eyelids. Really? Was the kiss so bad that I couldn’t even watch him change again in our own goddamn room? I didn’t even know why I was suddenly hurt but right now it felt like I was having heart burn.
I sniffed and quickly took off the dress, throwing it in a hamper across our room. I pulled off the tights and quickly changed from my silk panties to some boxer shorts before my stupid twin could come out and judge me. I wore my night gown and sat at the dresser; taking out my make-up wipes to get rid of the excess make-up on my face.
It was then that he exited the bathroom. He lingered hesitantly at the door before throwing his dirty clothes in the hamper and then sliding into the big double bed we shared. I ignored him, ignored the pain in my chest and wiped at my face furiously.
When I was done, I switched off the lights and climbed into the bed, making sure I scooted as far away from him as possible.
I’d hurt him.
God, I didn’t mean to do that but the thing was I was as wrong for the kiss as he was. I honestly didn’t know how to handle what had happened and I resorted to pushing him away. It was all unconscious but the bathroom thing took it too far. It was the first time in my life I had seen my brother as gay and not just as Tyler, my twin.
