The next morning Joni woke up on Rebecca's couch to pounding. She hadn't gotten drunk the night before so, she assumed it was someone at the door. "Becs!" she shouted not wanting to get up and answer the door. "It's her apartment anyway. I'm no maid," she mumbled to herself. The pounding was still happening at the door and Rebecca was not showing her face. Sighing Joni threw her legs over Rosalina who was laying on the other end of the couch and stomped to the door. Swinging it open she came face to face with Tobin.
"Good morning, Joni," she smiled at him and stepped to the side to let him walk in. As she started to shut the door, she noticed Vincent standing to the side talking with the man from the night before. She watched as they shook hands and the man walked to the elevator pushing the button. Turning back to look at Vincent she noticed him looking at her waiting for her to move so he could enter.
"What's going on?" Rebecca asked as she reached the bottom of the stairs. She looked at the front door and sees Tobin. Changing direction to avoid him, she walked to the couch. She hits Rosalina's leg to wake her and get her to make some room on the couch. Taking a seat, she crosses her arms and looks the opposite direction as her guests.
"You didn't tell me exactly what T did, Bec," Joni said walked to stand next to Tobin. Giving him a look, she hoped one of them would just tell her so she could go across the hall to her place and go back to bed. Rebecca opens her mouth to answer her friend but, as she does, she sees Vincent walk in and send her that smile that she was falling for before last night. Rolling her eyes, she stands up and stomps up the stairs without saying a word. Joni and Rosalina followed her up. Joni stares at her best friend with a look of wonder on her face. She had never seen her act like this and she was sure that she had never seen the women mad at Tobin before.
Rebecca turned around, sending a quick look between the two girls she walked to the top of the stairs and looked down. Vincent was standing at the bottom. "Why are you here?" she asked him. She made sure to show as much attitude as she could. She watches him as he shrugs and takes a step to come up the stairs. She holds a hand up telling him to stop his movement. Vincent does and backs off the stairs holding up his hands in surrender.
"I told you I would be here this morning," he answered her. Rebecca shook her head at him.
"No, you didn't."
"Yes, I did. It was the last text I sent you last night," Vincent could feel himself getting angry. Why was she lying? He hated liars. Women were liars that's was another reason he didn't like to date. All women lie. He glared at her as he watched her shaking her head at him. Still lying. Clenching his fists, he deepened his glare. Rebecca turned and grabbed her phone from her bedside table and opened it to the message chat they were having the night before. Looking at the last message she realized that he was right. He had told her he was coming.
"I must have fallen asleep," she said looking at the girls before walking back to the top of the stairs. "Sorry. I fell asleep and haven't looked at my phone yet this morning," she saw him give her a curt nod. She turned back around walking to her bed, she sat on it.
"Okay, so what the hell is going on?" Joni said folding her arms. She had had enough of whatever was happening. She really was ready to go home. But she wasn't one to just leave without hearing why the drama was happening. She may have a problem.
"Go ask T and the Godfather," Rebecca mumbles under her breath. Joni looks at Rosalina before she turned and stomped down the stairs. She walked straight to where Vincent stood in the living room and crossed her arms.
Vincent looked down at her and raised a brow. "Can I help you?"
"What the hell is going on? Why is my best friend mad at our other best friend and the first guy she has dated in like, ever?" Joni practically yelled in his face before turning to look at Tobin so he knew that she was asking him the question too.
