SCARLET

The night Mom and Thomas arrived home, I asked them to gather in the living room. I sat adequately with my hands over my knees and at my right side was Luke wearing an impassive face. His arms folded across his chest. Fortunately, Nate agreed to stay who was now at my left. A bit confused with the sudden family meeting, he didn't ask questions anymore.

I cleared my throat. "Well…" I licked my lips. "I just wanted you to know you that um… I need to…" I glanced up at Luke's face, still emotionless. He noticed me looking at him, then raised an eyebrow. I looked away quickly.

"Sweetheart, what's going on?" my mother frowned in confusion. Thomas seemed to have been keeping his usual calmness next to Mom, but seemed bothered as well.

"I think I need to—"

Luke rolled his eyes. "She's coming with me tomorrow."

"What?!" Nate reacted.

The world seemed to have stopped for everyone following by a moment of awkward silence.

Finally, Thomas spoke, "What is this all about? This is too sudden. Scarlet agreed to stay here for a week."

Mom touched Thomas' knee. "Yes, because I thought we agreed about this. Is there anything urgent?"

"Uh, yeah!" I clasped my hands. "Something came up, and I asked Luke if… if I could come with him since leaving for Cambridge tomorrow."

"Is this about this boy? Nathaniel isn't it?" Thomas questioned, curiously looking at Nate.

"Oh, no." Nate lifted both palms in surrender. "I don't know what's going on, Mr. Alejandro. I just came by to help each other with the thesis."

"Are you Scarlet's boyfriend?" Thomas asked him directly.

"Thomas!" my voice raised an octave. "We're best friends, and he's Katherine's boyfriend." I heaved a sigh. "Look, my graduation is coming. I don't really have enough time to finish everything, and we could still have a lot of time when I graduate, " I reasoned.

"But you promised me, Scarlet. We barely see each other, and it's only three more days to go, " Mom insisted.

Yeah, another three more boring days.

"Mom, come on. You and Thomas are barely even home, " I almost yelled, which made me instantly clasp my mouth.

Mom stunned. "Scarlet…"

"I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say that. But I'm still going to leave with Luke tomorrow. Now, I don't want to be rude, but will you please excuse me?" I finally stood. I couldn't believe I was doing this.

All because Luke was blackmailing me. Damn him.

I signaled Nate to come with me, and he excused himself as well and followed me to the poolside.

I slumped on the edge and soaked my feet in the sparkling blue water. It relaxed me. Seconds later, Nate sat next to me.

"You have a nice home, " he commented.

"Yeah."

Silence.

"I don't know what's going on with you, Scar, " he stated, looking at the pool water. "Whatever's happening, you always tell me what's wrong. But why on earth are you

nd hand trailed the small of my back. We both released a breath of pleasure. We liked how we felt about each other. Luke finally opened up. He was the Jax I remembered, and this time, it's not in the virtual world but real. This was how it was supposed to be.

"And then this thing I found out about you. I can't still believe it. How?"

"No one can know." I shut my eyes, remembering the horror of my past. I didn't want to disclose anything about it. It just still too painful. "And I don't want to talk about it."

He didn't answer, but eventually, he nodded.

"Say you agree with my proposition."

"Do I have a choice?"

"There's no other choice. I won't let you refuse either." He pressed a light kiss on the lips that sent millions of tiny bolts in my veins, rushing to my inner core. He was aware of the effect he had on me.

"Hmm…"

"Say, yes and I'll give ourselves everything we need."

This was something I needed for a long time. Me and him. He was only a crush when I first saw him and ever since that day, I knew I wanted him. Now he was offering himself to me. I just had to say yes, and he's mine. I couldn't wait to taste him, run my fingers all over his body, and touch him in every way I wanted.

It all still seemed too good to be true, but it was also dangerous which made it more thrilling... exciting. I had officially lost my mind, and I wanted my stepbrother to own me.

"For two months, " I whispered. "Is this no strings attached? No feelings?"

"I don't prefer it the other away. Are we good?" His thumb brushed my cheek, and his free hand moved to my ass and squeezed. I shut my eyes.

"Y-yes…" I answered breathlessly. I wouldn't want it any other way either. I still wasn't ready to give something more, but pleasure.

"Good. But this arrangement has to have rules."

I opened and gazed at his eyes now scorching in need. And that's exactly what I needed.

Rules.
