The first thing I saw as I woke up that Saturday morning was my brother stood over the bed holding a packet of crisps.
I blinked a few times to get the sleep out of my eyes and stretched.
“If this is another Drake and Nate chuckle brother wake up call, I'm going to set you both on fire.” I croak out, my voice still coated in sleep.
Nate smiled “Nope it’s just me so put the lighter fluid away.”
“I’ll give it a few more minutes.” I reply, and Nate chuckles.
I sit up slightly in the bed, the duvet falling to my waist.
“Why are you in here first thing in the morning anyway?” I ask, turning to look at my brother.
“Well, Drake told me what happened last night with Garry so I figured it was time to act the caring big brother. So I made you breakfast.” He explained, throwing the packet of crisps at my lap causing me to laugh. He climbs into bed and lays down next to me “…And it’s not morning, it’s gone midday.”
“That is morning. It’s basically like the crack of dawn to me.” I respond, picking up the crisps and smiling slightly at my brothers gesture.
“This is your version of breakfast in bed?” I ask him with my brows raised.
He smirks “Slaving away all morning to make that.”
I let out a laugh, before opening the bag of crisps and eating one. To be fair, me and my brother were lazy. This was as good a breakfast as any.
I offer him the bag and he takes a crisp.
“So, how do you feel this morning? Are you going to be needing the Notebook on DVD, ice cream and wine?” He asks.
“Not quite. Could probably do with the wine though.” I reply and he smirks “But no I’m fine honestly.”
“Don’t lie to me, we share DNA I know when you're lying.” He replies without a hesitation.
“Honestly Nate I’m fine, I don’t really care that he left. In all honesty I didn’t really want to be with him anyway.” I tell him and I was being serious, I really wasn’t feeling my ‘relationship’ with Garry. I knew when I was with him I was mostly doing it just to do something. I felt like I had an obligation to give it another try for some reason.
“Okay fine, to be fair I could see you weren’t into that guy anyway. But I know something is bothering you.” He looks at me, his eyes questioning.
I hesitate for a second before sighing.
“I guess it’s just…I did love Garry. The first time we went out, I loved him so much. He was my first...” I hesitate as I see the look of disgust on my brothers face and quickly change what I was going to say “…kiss.”
“Thank you for sparing me that.” Nate smiles slightly, and I can’t help but laugh. He looks at me, gesturing for me to carry on.
“Basically, if I can’t manage to love someone who I was crazy about before, what the hell does that say about me?” I finally get out and he looks at me thoughtfully for a few minutes before he replies.
“It means that that guy was a douche and you finally realised that. And it means there is someone else out there who actually deserves to be with someone like you.” As he says these words, my mouth goes dry and I actually have to fight back a few tears “…and doesn’t fuck small animals.”
I let out a strangled laugh as I'm still fighting back a few tears after hearing his words.
“Been talking to Drake?” I ask.
Nate smirks “We may have spent the morning talking about what a massive pig fucker Garry is, yes.”
I laugh again, realising just how awesome my brother is. I know some people who aren’t close to their siblings, and I'm so thankful that me and Nate were nothing like that. I’m happy that I know I can go to him when it comes to things like this. Yes, he is majorly over protective at times but that’s what made him Nate.
He scoots closer to me and puts an arm around my shoulder. I rest my head on his shoulder and smile slightly, the packet of crisps getting squashed somewhere in this embrace.
“I’m being serious though Mia, you deserve someone much better. Someone who doesn’t break up with you not once, but twice.”
I scowl “That’s another reason I'm pissed off. The stupid Ferret Fucker got there before I did.”
Nate lets out a laugh before kissing the top of my hair “Good to see you’ve come round to our way of thinking.”
