Why the fuck did he get to judge me? I hung up the phone and climbed back inside my bedroom window. Drew was already asleep. He’d gone to bed before I had called Alex. “It’s none of his business.” I spoke to myself. But yet I had told him that. Told him the one thing people didn’t know about me. He was so easy to talk to.
My phone rang and I frowned at the caller’s name. It simply said Alex. “What?” I answered grumpily.
“There’s nothing wrong with being a virgin. I just didn’t expect it. A pretty boy like you, you’ve been with Mia so long everyone figures.”
“Yeah I know what they figure. And we let them think it.” I growled at him.
“Come on, don’t be mad. I’m sorry I laughed.”
“Whatever.” I said sitting down on my bed. “I’m sure the next thing running around school will be I’m gay and a virgin.”
“That would probably make all the girls want you even more.”
“Yeah too bad, I don’t like girls.” I sighed, “And I’m not interested anyway.”
“What are you interested in, or should I ask who?” He smirked.
He thought he was making a joke. “You.” i said and then hung up again. I didn’t want to talk about it. I did’nt know why he was suddenly top of my mind. My phone rang again and I picked it up, “You really won’t let me brood will you?”
Alex chuckled, “If you keep hanging up on me I might be of the mind to tell you off in person.”
“Now? it’s almost midnight.”
I hung up the phone. I don’t know why I did that. Did I really think he was going to walk all this way to my house and tell me off in person? Fuck! What if he did? What if he doesn’t come?
I sat there and waited for several very long minutes staring at my phone waiting for him to call back. And when he never did my heart skipped a beat. Fuck, was he coming?
I told myself it had all been a game and I’d called his bluff. I got ready for bed. Pulled on a pair of pyjama bottoms and tossed my clothes in the hamper and crawled into bed.
I closed my eyes and tried to think of something else. But my mind kept coming back to those blue eyes. My hand strayed to my dick as I thought about him. Then there was a tap tap at my window.
My hand shot out of the covers and I was sitting up in the same motion as I looked out the window to see nothing. Just a branch of the tree scratching against my window. Fuck!
I got up and opened the window and stepped back outside dragging a blanket with me. It wasn’t the first time I’d done it. And it wasn’t likely the last, but tonight it was different as flapped the blanket down on the roof and set my pillow up by the window. Maybe the stars would keep me company.
“You do this often?” A voice from the shadows said as he crawled out of the tree branches on to the roof with me.
“Do what? Meet a guy outside my bed room window?” Alex nodded as he sat down next to me. Like right next to me his leg and arm pressed up against me. “I’d like to say it’s the first time, but Drew’s climbed that tree and come to sit with me many times. But this is the first time in the middle of the night a guy has come to see me.”
“I couldn’t sleep.” Alex said. “And I told you’d I’d come tell you off in person.”
I smiled and pressed my shoulder against his then leaned back to my own safe position, “This doesn’t look like telling me off.”
Alex stared straight ahead, “Maybe I didn’t mean telling you off, more like getting you off.”
He never turned to look at my reaction but he had a smirk on his lips. I just stared at him like he was some sort of alien. Or maybe it was more than that. I couldn’t believe he was sitting on my roof like he’d done it thousands of times before. “This how you sneak out?”
I shrugged, “I can, but it’s just as easy to walk out the front door.” I sighed, “Why did you come?”
Alex still never looked at me, “I told you I would, and I couldn’t sleep.”
He looked at me and smiled, “How often do I get challenged to come meet a boy I’ve been crushing on most of my life. I figured if I didn’t come then you’d probably not ever talk to me again.” Alex looked back out towards the street, “And I like talking to you. I don’t get why you are, but I’ll take it until the kids pressure you not to.”
“You think I care what they think?”
“Don’t you?” Alex looked at me again and nodded, “I mean look at you. Everything you do is praised and acknowledged. Even the stupid fake picture didn’t hurt your rep any, if it did anything it was make Jace look like an idiot and a bad photoshopper.” He chuckled, “The fact that you are even giving me the time of day is so fucking out there.”
“Why is it out there?” i knew I sounded offended and I was. Why was it that I couldn’t like Alex, or hang out with him. “Drew hangs out with Mandy, has for years, no one gives him shit about his rocker/slacker girlfriend.”
“Who is also known to fuck the foot ball team and Drew at the same time. No, no one gives him a hard time because they all secretly hope they’ll get to take part in her kink one day.”
“She’s not fucked the whole football team.” I laughed, “That’s a nasty rumor.”
“You know for certain?”
“I do. I know every guy they have brought into their circle of fucking. as they put it. And you are one of them.”
“I was one of them.”
“So I heard. Why’d you call it quits?” I asked.
Alex sighed, “Doesn’t matter. And how do you know I called it off?”
“Because Drew is upset about it. And I don’t think Mandy is telling the truth.”
“So if you don’t believe her about calling it off why believe who she has and hasn’t fucked?”
“Because Mandy is faithful to Drew in the sense that they always tell each other who they are fucking outside what they bring in together. Did you know you were the only guy Drew’s ever fucked alone. He doesn’t cheat on Mandy except with you.”
“I should feel privileged.” Alex rolled his neck like he had a stiff neck. I shifted so I could sit behind him and I put my hands around his neck and he froze. I pressed my thumbs into his spine and found a huge knot and started needed it. Alex groaned and relaxed all in the same moment.
“I wouldn’t say privileged.” I said as I worked the knot out of Alex’s neck, kneading strongly and softly at the same time. “Drew is loyal. And while he didn’t think of you as his boyfriend, he sorta hoped you would stick around for him.”
Alex laughed, “He’s the reason I ended it. He took advantage of my sensibilities and I know I never said no, but still he knew I don’t do that.”
“I’d ask do what, but that’s between you two. But if Drew hurt you I’m sure it was unintentional. You should tell him. Even if you don’t want to get back together with them, you should tell him he hurt you. I’m sure he didn’t mean it. He liked you.” I’d be disappointed if he got back with Drew, but Drew had him first.
“He talked about me?”
Alex laughed, “I think he was feeling you out. Drew knew why I came over the night of the party. He knew this was the only party of the summer I’d say yes to and not because he asked, but because it was here. He asked if he could use your room cause of me. I don’t think he planned to do what he did, we sorta just ended up doing it that way. And the only thing I wanted was for it to be you.” Alex confessed.
“You wanted to be having sex with me?” I pressed my thumbs into a knot and my head fell against the back of his neck. I could smell him again, so much better than his lingering scent left on my pillow.
