I shivered slightly at the sharp intake of breath. Ignoring it, I continued pretending to read my book, moving my eyes down the page and onto the next, eventually turning it. I tried so hard to focus on the book, but it was so difficult knowing he was so close.
"So, did I beat it?" He asked Joe, my brother. He was out of breath, which made me smile from behind the physical barrier my book provided.
"Yeah, mate. Two minutes, eighteen seconds. Pretty damn good, but I still ain’t giving you shit!" Joe replied, his tone one of disbelief.
Matt laughed, a deep, sexy and seductive sound, causing goose bumps to appear all over my body. "You owe me good, isn't that right Rain?"
"What was that?" I asked softly, feigning ignorance.
"Matt, she's a loser who's always got her nose in a book, she’s useless." As I pretended to ignore my brother, I could feel another pair of eyes gazing my way. I folded a random page of my book, not looking up, and closed it. I didn’t want to see the smirk I knew was there, or better yet, pity.
"I heard you’re failing History, Maths and English. What a shame. It would be really, really sad if Dad was to find out." I said mockingly whilst standing up as straight as possible, hopefully showing that I wouldn’t back down.
"Like I care, go ahead and tell him. Oh, and while you're at it, tell him I got a tattoo on my ass that says 'F urself'." Joe laughed darkly, causing my fury upon him to increase. He could be such an ass, especially in front of Matt and I hated that.
"You got a tattoo?” I smirked sardonically, “Joe, the last time the doctor gave you a flu shot, you cried like the little bitch you are.” I could see Joe’s temper flare, which wasn’t in my best interest. So what did I do, I added fuel to the fire. "And how long ago was that?" I asked, smirking wider.
"Shut up," he whispered harshly but I unrepentant, pretending not to hear him. I was getting good at it.
"Wait, what was that? A few months ago, you say?” I could hear Matt snickering, so sent a little wink in his direction. This only caused him to laugh louder, and while it turned me on, I could tell it only infuriated Joe more so. "Yeah, so next time you call me useless, remember this moment." I spoke unkindly to my brother, whose flushed face was deepening in colour.
"And to think I was going to give you my iPhone 4 for Christmas." He yelled as I walked away. Oh hell no, he did not just threaten me with the iPhone 4. Damn! Crap! Ah shit!
I continued walking to the lounge room, making sure to slam the door behind me for dramatic effect before I relaxed on the couch. Why did I have to be a bitch for? Oh wait! He called me useless.
I could hear my brother going off at Matt, probably telling him that I was an ugly liar and so he shouldn’t believe me but him instead, blah blah blah. I zoned out completely, until I heard absolutely nothing. It was quite eerie actually.
All of a sudden, my stupid, old Nokia phone rang out, breaking the silence. As soon as I saw the caller ID, I answered. It was my best friend Lia. "Hello?" I questioned warily, very suspicious as to why she was calling.
"Rain, where’s the trust?” she asked smoothly, knowing exactly why I answer the phone the way I do when she calls. “Actually don't answer that. Are you dressed decently?"
"Well, I'm wearing cute little booty shorts and a singlet why?" I replied.
"Hmm… nice. Well I'm going to pick you up in about five minutes because we need to go shopping for your bro's party tonight."
I fought the urge to roll my eyes. Sighing dramatically, I told her, "Lia, I don't think I'm going tonight. Let's just hang at your place, or something."
"Rain, if this is about your brother, don't worry. He loves me!" I could hear the leer in her voice.
