Alex was still fighting me off as I dragged her out of the back door.

"Calm down, Alex. Calm down, " I told her and set her down far enough from the house at the back yard.

Without waiting another moment, she was striding back towards the house the moment I let go off her, still intending to devour Alana. I grabbed her arm and pulled her back again. She turned back and looked at me accusingly, her green eyes blazing like a house caught on fire.

"Why did you stop me?!"

I chuckled, "She didn't mean anything. She doesn't know."

"I don't give a shit."

She started walking back in. Again.

"Hey. Hey. Hey, " I grabbed her again. "It's not her fault. I made her say it. I teased her and I made her say it."

"Hmm." She raised her eyebrow and gave me the look, the look that said she was studying me.

"She's Alana, " she stated.

"Yup."

She frowned, "Where did you learn to crush on a bitch?!"

"Hey, " I said, reminding her that I really liked Alana and she shouldn't really talk crap about her.

She knew about it.

"Sorry."

I smiled and assured her, "It's okay. I'm fine."

"I'll let her go this time only because you said she didn't mean it and also because. . . Fuck, " she deadened in annoyance, "You have a thing for her."

I laughed.

~ What do I do with her?

Alex and I were best friends but we were more like siblings. She was just as screwed as I was. She knew exactly how much I hated it when people call me the thing Alana called me just a minute ago. She knew what it meant to me so, she exploded.

She raised her voice again, "But if she repeat that again, know that I'll skin her alive at that spot. I don't give a fuck about how you feel for her. Me personally, she's given me the bad impression so, " she air quoted, "I don't like her." And crossed it off.

"Oh. Come on. You'll like her. You just happened to be at the wrong time." I wrapped an arm around her and pulled her to my side.

~ Alex liking my girl counts a whole lot.

~ She's my brother.

"Your breath stink when you talk about her, " she muttered angrily.

I laughed and hugged her even tighter, "I love you."

"Get away. I told you that you fucking stink, asshole." She groaned, pushing me away.

She was not happy with me for stopping her from beating Alana black and blue. But she was even more unhappy that someone called me a pervert. Damn. I hated to see her unhappy. I treasured Alex so much.

"Let's go for a ride, " I suggested, knowing she love night driving and that was the only way to cool her down.

"Don't bribe me."

"You don't wanna?" I pushed my lower lip out, "But Charlie's waiting just outside for you."

Charlie is my car. She love it so much she even named it. And I was so damn sure that she would lose to my offer anyway. She simply can't resist it. Yup. I could see the tempting excitement barely hidden beneath her scowl.

"Please." I put my hands in my pocket and tilted my torso towards the right, trying to catch her eyes.

She tried to look away.

"Please." I tilted to the side even lower, tempting her. "Please, " even lower, "Please, " and even lower.

"Pleeeaas. . ."

"Okay!!!!" she barked, acting as if she agreed out of my annoying insistence.

~ Cute. . . and yet Scary. I have a Tiger for a brother.

Nobody messes with THE ALEX.

I flashed a huge grin and pulled her close to my side. We walked to the car and she was more than excited once she got in. I went round the front and settled in my seat.

She looked around and said, "Shit. I should have brought a pesticide or a sanitizer. Alana's been in here. You've been driving her to school, right?"

I frowned at her.

She laughed and ruffled my hair, "You do like her, don't you?"

"I do." I smiled even as I thought of her, my Mongrel.

"She's lucky, " Alex said as she looked out of the window.

"Awe. . . You like me too, don't you?" I teased her as I pinched her cheek.

"Go fuck yourself in hell." She slapped my hand and gave me a dead glare.

I groaned as I started the engine and drove out of the parking lot, "Ahhh. . . Why does the girls I like never like me back. I should probably go be with Megan then."

"I'll castrate you." Alex boxed me on my face.

Surprised and shocked beyond comprehension, she had me laughing out loudly. She's got balls that many boys don't have.

"What the. . . Alex!! For the love of God, you didn't do that, " I guffawed loudly.

She chuckled along.

~ So she hates Megan even more.

We both didn't like the fact that Megan was everywhere I was and how she always clung onto me. She should know that she was nowhere near my Mongrel. She was beyond crazy tonight. She even dared to sit on my lap. What a pain in the ass.

After a crazy night drive along the empty highway out of town, we drove back. By now, Alex was good as hell. Mission accomplished.

When we got back to Hunt's place, Scott was waiting for us at the parking lot.

He jumped down from a car an

arm under her thighs, one around her back and picked her up bridal style. She wound her arms around my neck and began to sing as I walked down the parking lot to my car.

'Stars shining bright above you

Night breezes seems to whisper I love you'

I wondered how she knew such an old song, my grandmother's favorite.

I looked down at her and smiled. She was looking up at the star spangled sky, her eyes reflecting the pretty lights.

'Birds singing in the sycamore tree

Dream a little dream of me'

Her sleepy voice flattered me so badly. With the crooning voice and the lyrics, I was loosing grip on my self control. I clenched my jaws together as tight as I could. I wanted to kiss her right then. But I knew that I shouldn't. Not when she was not sober or willing. She would think I was taking advantage. That way, I can kiss goodbye to ever getting the chance to love her.

She looked back at me and sang.

'Sing nighty night and kiss me'

And then she giggled.

"Kiss me, " she said.

I halted my footsteps. It hit me like a knock on the head with a flower pot.

~ Don't, Alana.

~ Don't ask me to because I will.

"Do you want to kiss me?"

"Yes."

Wild sparks burning inside her bewitching eyes, she smiled, planted an index finger on her lips and pressed that finger on my lips and she giggled, "This is our first kiss."

~ Aww Alana.

"Let's get you home, " I whispered.

"No. I don't wanna go home."

"Why not?"

"Dad will be mad at me because I drank. I can't go home. I can't can't can't can't."

"You have to go home Alana. I'll drive you."

"I said no, " she whined, "It's no going to be fun at home. The best night of my life will be ruined if I go home. I can't can't can't can't." She shook her head from side to side vigorously like a kid.

"Where do you wanna go then?"

"Anywhere but not home, " and she nestled into my arms.

I really thought of taking her home but she protested whenever I mentioned the word home like it was some plague. Besides, having grown up as a nerd, I seriously had no idea what her father would say.

"You can't take me home, Xavier. You can't can't can't can't." Those were the last words she said before she slowly passed out in my car.

-------

I carried her up to my room and laid her down on my bed. I removed her shoes and the jacket and...

"Dammit!" I swore.

She was so beautiful.

~ Get a fucking grip on yourself, Arquette.

She moved a little and huddled her body together like a child as I pulled the blanket over her.

I changed back to a pyjama. Usually, I sleep in my boxers alone but she would freak out first thing in the morning if she find me sleeping next to her in just my boxers.

I checked the time on my watch as I removed it from my wrist. It was 1:30 in the morning. Taking one more look of her sleeping face, I slid under the same cover next to her. Breathing deeply, she moved and closed the distance between us, one arm falling across my stomach. I rolled on my side and stared at her sleeping face, gently caressing her cheek.

~ Damn, I was so crazy 'bout her.

When she moved in one inch closer, I pulled her three inch closer to me and wrapped her in my arms. I kissed the top of her head and closed my eyes, wondering. . .

~ What happens when she wake up tomorrow?
