Carlos stood next to me, his hands were shaking but whether it was out of fear or anger I wasn't sure because my attention was on this dude that was standing in front of us. I wasn't a rocket scientist but I could tell that this dude was one of Carlos's many exes, dude was cute I guess but there was something about him that sent chills up and down my spine. The dude opened his mouth to say something but Carlos quickly said something about having business to take care of and ended up pulling me along with him; we got back to our room and Carlos started pacing around while wringing his hands sweating a little bit. I've never seen Carlos this distressed he was usually the cool, calm, cocky and collected dude that I fell in love with; after walking around the room for about thirty minutes he looked out the window and let out a sigh of relief before walking over to our refrigerator and started making himself a drink. I couldn't take this anymore, I waked over to him and put my hand on his shoulder; Carlos looked up at me and smirked.
"I'm about to go take another walk on the beach.... I'll be back or you can come with me...." He said quietly. "I just need to clear my head and try to figure things out." He said walking out the door before I could even start talking. Carlos was gone for an hour and the entire time I stood on the balcony watching him skip rocks across the water and I couldn't take it anymore, I had to know who this 'Malik' dude was. When I walked out the room I ran start into Jayden who was carrying a bucket of ice.
"Ayy my bad Quinton, about earlier...... I didn't know you couldn't swim. I would've figure with your dad being a seaman he would've taught you." Jayden said smirking a little.
"My dad was in the Air Force which makes him an Airman..... but it's coo who is Malik?" I asked and Jayden started laughing.
"Damn Papi finally told you about Malik? I don't know if that's a good or bad thing, I'll have to talk to Gio and see if Papi deserves the Short Bus Helmet when we get home." Jayden said laughing and sometimes I just he could be serious for one second.
"He didn't tell me about Malik, the dude just showed up and Carlos sorta freaked out.... I've never seen him so nervous about anything before; so I can guess he's Carlos's ex.... but what's the story between them?" I asked and Jayden sorta looked nervous.
"Umm..... this is probably something you should ask Papi about seeing as how he's central to the whole situation and I don't wanna give you misinformation." Jayden said and I stood there staring at him. "God you are nosy as fuck..... okay here's what I know; everyone is addicted to something, I got an addiction to those Hershey's Cookies and Cream bars, Gio is addicted to the rush he gets when he's fighting, Jeremy is addicted to red Starburst....... Papi's addiction was Malik and though he loves you I don't think he's been able to shake that feeling he got from Malik........." Jayden said and I nodded, I wasn't pissed or anything but I needed to know something that only Carlos could answer.
"Thanks Jayden...." I said walking past him down to Jeremy's room and knocked on the door loudly, Gio opened the door and I quickly turned around; not only was Gio naked but I caught a glimpse of Jeremy laying on the bed his ass was covered in caramel.
"Jeremy is busy..... come back later." Gio said closing the door and I wondered what was the point of even answering it? He really could've just ignored me knocking and I would've got the hint. I finally decided to walk down to the beach with Carlos where he was still skipping stones and stood next to him.
"I was thinking we should have dinner right here, after doing a little math I found out this is the perfect spot to watch the sunset, I'll talk to the staff and see if they can set us up a table out here." Carlos said still not meeting my eyes.
"Carlos do you still have feelings for Malik." I asked quietly.
"Nah not even slightly but there's way more to the story and this isn't the time or place to discuss that, join me for dinner and I'll tell you whatever you wanna know about me and Malik's relationship so you don't have to ask Jayden about it." Carlos said with his eyebrows raised. "Next time you wanna know something don't go to him or Gio, come to me and I'll tell you whatever you wanna know. I have yet to lie to you and I won't start today or ever..... now let me see how far you can skip these rocks." He said smiling.
