Terra woke up with a pounding in her head. The light from the sun shone through the window and she felt like jack hammers were going off inside her head. Finally getting the courage to open her eyes she realized where she was and almost fell out of bed when she heard a snore beside her.
Josh Laid there sound asleep in nothing but a pair of boxers and she could not help but take in the view while she had a chance.
“See something you like?” Terra jumped and realized Josh was awake looking at her with a smirk on his face. Terra blushed and stuck her tongue out before she stood up and went to the bathroom. Closing herself in, she looked in the mirror and cringed at her appearance. Her hair was everywhere and her make-up was running down her face. She noticed she was wearing one of Josh’s T-shirts and could not remember changing when they got back. After washing her face and rinsing her mouth out she headed downstairs to find Josh sitting at the table eating tricks cereal.
“Silly boy tricks are for kids.” She said sitting down and pouring herself a bowl.
Josh just laughed and shook his head. “How are you feeling Drunky?”
Terra blushed and scowled. “I have felt better. How did I get here?”
“You really don’t remember?” He asked perplexed.
Terra shook her head and waited for him to tell her. “Well I had to beat Bryan off of you and I brought you here. Amie went home with Jenna Jeremy’s sister. I had to change you out of your dress because you got sick last night and I figured you would be more comfortable.”
Terra stared wide eyed. If he changed her then that means he saw a lot of her. She didn’t wear a bra and her panties were almost nonexistent. As if reading her mind Josh started laughing.
“Its ok I didn’t look…much…nice tits by the way kid. When did you grow up?” Josh laughed even harder and Terra stood up and began to walk out of the kitchen embarrassment taking over.
She had barely made it out of the kitchen and into the hallway when Josh grabbed her wrist and pinned her to the wall. “I was just joking. Calm down. I didn’t see much but what I did see was beautiful.”
Terra blushed crimson and couldn’t help getting caught in his eyes. They were even brighter blue than is sisters. Terra didn’t know what had happened but before she could even process what was happening Josh’s lips were on hers. He pulled her closer into his chest and lifted her up pinning her to the wall while grabbing ahold of her butt. The kiss grew deeper and Terra was completely lost.
It wasn’t until he pulled away she realized what she just did. She had kissed her best friend’s older brother. The one boy that was off limits to her. before anything could be said she ran up the stairs changed and hurried out the door.
By the time she made it to her house she was completely out of breath. Tip toeing through the house so she didn’t wake her mother up, she went straight to her room and laid down on her bed.
That kiss! She thought. It was amazing. Terra couldn’t get it out of her head. Mentally groaning she covered her face with a pillow and tried to force it out. She was stupid if she thought anything could happen. Josh was her best friend’s brother. That alone made him off limits. It also did not help that he was a well-known player at school.
Deciding to keep herself occupied she found a book and decided to read her worries away. it was almost four when her stomach growled and she realized how hungry she was.
Tip-toeing to the kitchen she made herself a sandwich and was almost to the stairs when she heard her mother get up. She stood there frozen with fear.
“Oh so now you come home. You know I wish you would have died instead of your brother. He was a much better child than you.” Her mother said in her sneering slurred voice. Terra felt the tears start to come on. That was her mother’s favorite line. What her mother didn’t know is how much Terra wished that were true. She had just put one foot on the stairs when her mother came up behind her and pulled her down by her hair.
“Hey bitch I am talking to you.” She screamed as she kicked Terra repeatedly in the ribs. Terra felt a crunch and doubled over in pain.
Her mother stood above her and laughed before taking her sandwich and walked to her bedroom. After about ten minutes Terra finally found the strength to get up and half walked half crawled to the bathroom where she locked the door and sat on the floor crying.
It had been a while since she had made herself feel better. She had been trying to quit but she knew right now she was going to cave. Rummaging through the cabinets she found a razor and pried out one of the blades and held her breath as she felt the sharp metal pierce her skin. Immediately she felt relief wash through her body.
Cleaning up and putting a bandage on her wrist she went to her room and pulled out her phone. As much as she didn’t want to she needed help. Finally she found Josh’s number and hoped and prayed he would answer.
“Hello?” she heard his voice on the other end and sighed with relief.
“Josh this is Terra. I need you to come pick me up please.” She tried to keep the tears from her voice as she spoke.
Quickly he agreed and she started packing an overnight bag and made her way outside to wait for Josh.
Josh finally pulled up five minutes later and he got out of the car quickly grabbed her bag and helped her in. Terra noticed his knuckles were white on the steering wheel as he drove.
“Amie is not here she is staying another night with Jenna. It will just be you and me.” Terra was to tired to answer and just nodded her head.
When they made it to the house and inside Terra ignored Josh’s pleas to tell him what happened and went to Amie’s room. The minute she laid down she fell asleep.
