Start from the beginning
                                                  

To my surprise, Eros yawned, stood up, and went upstairs without a word.

“Um, friendly much,” Lexie interestedly added.

“He’s different, you know?” Kyle responded, folding his jacket neatly on his side. He brought his legs up and crossed it over each other. “It doesn’t matter if he wants to join us or not. Let’s not kill the mood, ladies!”

I gave out a laugh as I stared at Lexie who was also laughing like me. “You’re right. What do you think should we do first?”

“Scrabble?” Kyle suggested.

“Nah,” came an automatic reply from Lexie. Lexie had always been the Queen of games so she gets to decide which game. Most of all, she never ever wanted to be bored.

The three of us used to play a lot of games, but as we grew up, we got busier and then the other games seemed to be out of place for us, like, it wasn’t for us. So reminiscing the old days were really difficult. I just wish that time could go back for a moment and let me have as much fun without any worries and troubles from reality.

But then we’re still young. We could do so much more.

“Mix-and-Match?” I blurted out without a second thought.

Lexie scrubbed her chin as if she had a beard. She seemed to have thoroughly taken in my idea and was slowly trying to put it into action. “Good idea! How do you play it?”

Kyle clapped his hands and pulled a strand Lexie’s red hair. “What a surprise. You, the Queen of all games have no idea what Mix-and-Match is?”

“Just because you’re always wearing a fashionable trend doesn’t mean you have to insult the Queen,” I told Kyle, all the while waving his blue knitted scarf in my hand. “You might as well pay her respects or else she’ll beat you in this game again.”

Kyle shook his head, laughing, “Okay, okay.”

Although Lexie was glaring at him, Kyle disregarded her. That’s the thing about Lexie, you never ever insult her, or things might end up badly. She was full of fun, wicked ideas though.

“So! To start off, Mix-and-Match’s like dressing up—“

“We’re playing Barbie and Ken?” Kyle’s eyes widened.

This time, I was the one who glared at him. “Oh, come on, you wear a funny dress and you do a dare for every question that you can’t answer in five seconds, as simple as that.”

Lexie grinned wickedly, “I like this game!” Kyle and Lexie both stood up and sat on the carpeted floor. I followed them, and then we formed a triangle. We were like kids trying to ease out our worries, and I liked it. I am never too old to have fun. And, it wasn’t like there’s anything we can do. If we had watched a movie, we would have ended up sleeping.

“First question for Kyle!” Lexie waved her hands in front of Kyle. “Who’s your favorite bold star?”

I ended up roaring in laughter.

“What the honest hell, Lex!” Kyle complained, trying to think of a name. His eyes scanned our living room, looking for a magazine, I bet. “Your brother has to have a magazine here somewhere. . .”

“5!” Lexie and I giggled loudly.

“You two are cunningly evil,” he stood up and ran all over our cypress desks. Kyle even used his eyeglasses to search for a bold star’s name. Lexie sure is a smartass. She just threw the question like that.

“4. . . 3!” Lexie continued, whistling as she watched Kyle in amusement.

Of course he’d think that my brother has one magazine of it. My brother was somehow a perverted ass. But I never once saw him with that kind of magazine. Plus, it wasn’t like he can find it here. My brother wasn’t that careless in his stuff. He hates it when I clean our rooms, because I usually end up having most of his important things thrown in the garbage can.
