Raine pulled her red sweater over her head and tied back her just washed hair. She had
spent two days in her room and only stepped out when her mother called her down for dinner. As for her
family asking what was wrong ,her mother ordered everyone to steer clear of the subject. Dante didn't
ask but he knew it was about a man. Raine couldn't look him in the eyes and he didn't ask why.
Casey had called earlier and begged, no threatened her to get out of bed. Raine sucked i her
lip and stepped out of her room. She expected music, flowers a whole hall full of celebrating family
members. Instead she found a half nude Dante taking a bowl of cereal into his room.
"Look who finally decided to come out of the cave." he mocked. He looked down at his
boxers ,bare chest and shrugged.
"Leave it alone; and do you always walk around in the nude when I'm not around?" she
asked picking up her flats from the shoe stand outside her door.
"I'm wearing boxers, I'm not naked and where are you going?" he asked walking into his
room. Raine followed, tired of living in her own secluded mess. She didn't have much human contact.
"Casey called; we're headed out for some frozen yogurt. You want to come?" Raine asked
looking up at her brother. Honestly she had missed speaking to him. Dante was no where near perfect
but he was sweet, and made her laugh.
"Make that pizza and add Logan on the guest list." he smiled and began to text Logan. Raine
froze and felt her blood boil. She didn't want Logan to see her miserable. Her heart felt weak and her
eyes began to tear again.
"Hurry up and get ready Casey will be here any-" Raine was going to finish when she heard
a low whistle. Casey stood behind her with wide eyed. She blew out another low whistles and grinned.
"Dante have you been working out?" she winked. Dante blushed and quickly grabbed his
shirt. Casey chuckled and turned towards Raine. Casey wore an off the shoulder white sweater and
denim jeans. Her hair was pulled out into soft waves. Raine looked at herself and then grunted under
"Stop flirting with my brother and help me." She hissed at Casey.
"Okay, okay." She smiled at Dante and walked back in to Raine's room.
"What do I do? Dante just invited Logan along." Raine dropped on her messy bed and
covered her face with her hands. It took her nearly a week to get up from bed and now she would have to
face him again. Raine was aware that she would no doubt break down in tears when Logan comes in
front of her.
"First of all you need to stop moping around for that ass wipe. He doesn't deserve it, what he
deserves is a hard kick to his nuts. Besides this is the perfect opportunity to mess with him." Casey
grinned rubbing her hands together.
"What? How?" Raine looked up at Casey who was smiling.
"We need to get you into something hot. Show him what he's missing." She winked.
"We had sex; he knows what he's missing." Raine collapsed back. Casey pulled her up
again and yanked out the band from her hair.
"No he had sex not you, you don't even remember; which means you're still a virgin." Casey
started pulling out clothes from her closet.
"It doesn't work that way. What are you doing Casey?" Raine asked irritated.
"Wear this." She tossed her clothes.
"What if I say no?" Raine teased. Casey propped her hands over her hips.
"You'll find pickles all over your bedroom tomorrow morning; rotten pickles." She
emphasized. Raine laughed and did as Casey said.
Ten minutes later and a tug of war with the brush Raine waited for Dante downstairs. Casey
looked Raine from head to toe with a satisfied grin.
"You woman, are a knock out." She pushed her slightly. "Speaking of knock outs, where is
your brother? Clive is getting restless in the car." Casey said looking up towards the stairs.
"Clive?" Raine began to question and Dante made his entrance in a sky blue t-shirt and
khaki shorts. He gave Casey smile and walked down the stairs in all his glory.
"Let's go; my cousin is waiting in the car. I can't wait for you guys to meet him. I think you
already met him Raine." She said walking out the door Dante behind her while I stood still besides her a
"Clive. That's your cousin?" Raine asked alarmed.
"Yup, cute right?" she asked. Raine looked at the deep set brown eyes and the roguish grin.
Cute wouldn't be the right word to describe him. He was exactly like she remembered; full ample lips,
