I tossed and turned in bed all night, I was dreaming about my mom and brother again; as hard as I tried I couldn't wake myself up. I remembered the time we went to Disney World and my little brother punched the guy in the Mickey costume in the nuts because he didn't want to take pictures with us because he was going on break, my dreams shifted to the conversation I had with my family about my sexuality and the disappointment in Samuel's..... next up was Jamal and I knew I had to wake myself up; it took a lot but I finally managed to wake myself up and had to go get something to drink. I walked into the kitchen ignoring Papi and Quinton who were sitting on the couch studying and Gio who was eating but stopped and gave me an inquisitive look, I knew I looked pretty fucked up which usually happened when I dreamed about my family but I didn't want to talk about and I let him know that with a single glance and he went back to his food.
"It's three in the morning why are y'all still up?" I asked sitting my water on the counter and watching them.
"Well I was hungry and I don't know why they're still up, though it is surprising that they're not arguing or fucking." Gio said laughing as Papi flipped us off without turning around. "Also I was making a list of shyt we're going to need for this party, I just need to figure out how many people are coming I know Gavin is going to invite some of his frat brothers; are you planning on inviting some of the Alpha's." Gio asked and I shook my head vigorously.
"No that is a bad idea, Paul is going to be there and after what happened with him and Terrell the last thing I want is for them to fuck up our new place." I said and Gio looked at me confused, fuck I forgot he didn't know about Terrell fucking his aunt. I gave him a recap of everything I knew and he shook his head. "I mean it's not a secret that she's been cheating on my uncle, I remember she tried to fuck...." He nodded his head towards Papi before continuing. "So that's not surprising.... aight so we won't invite them, but if you're going to be around them I think they should at least meet your brothers."
"Yeah maybe once I'm officially an Alpha we can put something together. I can't wait until we move into our new place, don't get me wrong we have some good times here I might actually miss it." I said just as gun shots rang off in the distance. "And on that note I can finally go back to sleep." I said shaking my head.
"Jay before you go....." Gio said but I acted like I didn't hear him, like I said earlier I knew what he wanted to talk about but I was good, I didn't want to talk about it at least not right now we could talk about it tomorrow morning.
The next day I was in the gym working on legs, I hated leg day but with track season coming up I knew I had to getting myself back together. I wasn't planning on doing too much today though because I had plans with Kyrese later, so I wasn't trying to be sore. As I started doing squats I noticed Ezra standing off to the side watching me closely. I elected to ignore him because he was a bitch and I didn't like him trying to blackmail my bro for sex.
"Wassup Jayden." Ezra said standing behind me, I kept doing my squats and I tried to ignore the fact that he was watching my ass a little too closely for my liking. "I'm actually glad I ran into you, I've been wanting to speak to you for a while now and I......."
"Don't you go to school in East Lansing? So why are you here exactly?" I asked continuing my workout and deciding if I should accidentally drop the weight on his foot.
"Yeah I'm here on business but I can see you're busy so I'll just talk to you later." Ezra said starting to walk away. "But before I go I just wanted to know if you've seen Gavin?" Ezra asked.
"I'm pretty sure you have his number, if you wanted to talk to him you could try to call him." I said putting the weights back since it was clear that he wasn't going to let me finish my workout. I walked past him to head to the locker room trying to figure out what game Ezra was playing.
"Was that Ezra?" Paul asked scaring the fuck outta me while I got my bag.
"Yeah..... ain't that your boy?" I asked looking at him, I could see Paul starting to get angry but I didn't have time to be caught in the middle of this whole Ezra versus Gavin situation.
"Jayden we really need to talk about........" Paul started to say but I slammed the locker showing him that I wasn't going there with him.
"Paul I'm not having this conversation with you so just drop it." I said walking away from him, Paul wanted something from me that I wasn't willing to give and I'm not going to lie his offer was tempting but nah I couldn't do it....... After I left the gym I decided to go to my brother and mom's grave, I hadn't been there in a while and I needed to let them know about everything that was going on. When I got there I was surprised to see Gavin standing at my mother's grave. "My mom always did like orchids." I said walking over to him.
"Yeah, I know...... I've been thinking about her a lot lately, she really was a sweet woman. I remember I got stranded in Detroit while my parents were away and she came to pick me up." Gavin said looking down. "Well I gotta get going, tell Gio I'll be by later to discuss something with him." Gavin said walking away, I watched as he walked away and drove off before telling my mom about everything that's happened since the last time I was here, then moving on to my brother's grave and doing the same thing, by the time I was finished I was feeling a lot better.
"Ayy so far we got, Gavin, Donny, Jeremy, Quinton, Kyrese, Steve, Julian and Angelo helping us move." Gio said as soon as I walked into the house. "That's more than enough people so it really shouldn't take too long."
"I hope they aren't expecting to get paid." I said laughing.
"Nah they just except us to cook for them on Sunday, which isn't too bad...... though Angelo is expecting money but I think Papi is going to cover that. So you wanna talk about what happened last night?" Gio asked.
"What you trying to sneak a peek at my dick? And before you even try to lie I saw you." I said laughing but Gio's face remained completely neutral. "Aight so I was dreaming about my mom and bro again, but it's coo..... it's going to happen sometimes and I just have to deal with it."
"Jay you know me and Papi are always here if and when you need to talk, you don't gotta hold it all in." Gio said quietly, I nodded but didn't reply because I knew I could always count on them. "You wanna ride with me to the store I want to get a few things and take them over to the new house."
"Aight coo but I'm driving because it's a known fact you are a horrible driver in the snow..... and in the rain...... and at night....... and....." I was about to say something else but Gio grabbed an orange and threw it at me, narrowly missing my head. "I'll let you have that one, but we gotta hurry back because Gavin said he'll be over later and I don't want him thinking I forgot to tell you." I said smirking.
As we walked around Walmart getting the essentials; soap, deodorant, lotion, condoms and other stuff we'd need for our new place, we weren't even half way done when we ran into Kyrese and Terrell who looked a little spooked to see Gio. I couldn't help myself, I grabbed Ky and started kissing him right there in the middle of the aisle ignoring the looks we were probably getting.
"I'm coming over tonight." I said once we finally broke apart. "Wassup Rell?" I said as he looked everywhere but at Gio.
"Aight coo..... my roommate is staying with his girl so we should have the house to ourselves. Are y'all cooking tomorrow?" Kyrese asked.
"Yeah definitely, Papi is cooking a Spanish feast so that should be interesting." Gio said. "Jay I'm going to go finish shopping just meet me in the checkout lane." Gio said walking away.
"Yo does he know about......." Terrell said nervously watching Gio walk away.
"Yeah but Gio's coo that's my bro, now the one you need to worry about is Paul." I said and Kyrese hit me in the arm. "I'm just fuckin with you don't worry about it Rell, I'll talk to Paul and try to get him to calm down but no promises...... he's pretty pissed."
"Jayden we gotta get going but call me before you come over so I can make sure everything is ready." Kyrese said winking.
"Wait hold everything is ready for what?" I asked but Kyrese just kept walking away with a sneaking grin on his face. I ran to catch up with Gio telling we needed to hurry up because I had somewhere to be in a couple hours and I wanted to make sure I was there on time, if it was what I think it was I was in for a wild night...................
