Alex can't help but stare at the man sleeping in front of her. He looks very gentle when he is asleep. She must admit that this guy is not that bad when it comes to his looks. In fact, many girls would fall for him because of his height and his body, not to mention his small face and pink lips.
Alex tried to brush off what she was thinking by focusing on the movie shown in TV. She couldn’t help but think how she would look like if she is a straight woman. How would she behave as a girlfriend? She starts asking herself about her feelings for this man. She was sure before that she would never fall for a man but nowadays, she can't explain what she feels whenever Carlos takes care of her or when he teases her. These are the feelings she never thought she would feel for the opposite gender. She was surprised when her phone rang. She forgot to set it to silent mode and the sound was quite loud that it woke Carlos up.
"Hello." Alex answered the call. It was her gf.
"Where are you? Meet me now. If you don't come, then let's break up."
"I'm quite busy right now. We can meet first thing tomorrow if you want."
"No. Meet me now or never meet me again. You only have two choices."
"Let's break up then. Goodbye." Then, she hung up the call.
Carlos clapped his hands loudly after the call. "You are so cool! How can you break up without showing any emotion? I should learn from you."
"Shut up!" Alex snapped then she sat down on the bed.
Carlos sat next to Alex then wrap his arms around her shoulders. "Since you just broke up with your girlfriend, why don't we go to a club tonight and meet some women? I'm not familiar with this place so I can't bring you anywhere. You should be my guide, okay? Then we can look for our own partner. You can rent the room next to this one so you can have a private time with her."
Alex glared at him. She changed her mind. She is not confused anymore. She can never fall for this man.
"I'm hungry. Let's go to a fast food restaurant. I'm craving for burger." Carlos said.
"I don't want to eat anything. I don't have appetite. You go. I will stay here." Alex removed Carlos hand from her shoulder and lied down on the bed.
Carlos lied down next to her and hug her from behind which made Alex got up from the bed immediately.
"What do you think you're doing?!" She asked angrily.
"I just want to lay down beside you. You said you don't want to go out, so I also want to stay here with you. What are you thinking?"
"Then why do you have to hug me?"
"Can't I? I didn't do anything." Carlos then smiled. "Did you feel something when I hugged you? I think I'm not safe in this room. I won't do it again. Spare me please, I'm still a virgin." Carlos said who is now pretending to be scared.
"You pervert! Stop pretending! If there is anyone who should be scared between the two of us, that should be me. I'm still a woman, don't forget that. And don't ever lay your hands on me, I had goosebumps. It makes me want to puke."
"I would never touch you, don't worry. I respect you and I promised your parents that I will never hurt you, emotionally and physically. Maybe we can do whatever you are thinking after our wedding. You have to get me drunk though." Carlos then winked at Alex while smiling.
"Why did I come here? I will go home!" Alex got her bag and started heading for the door. Carlos grabbed her arm and pulled her to the bed.
"Stay here. I will stop. I will give never bother you. Okay?" Carlos finally gave up. He really has that fixed smile on his face which makes Alex feel more annoyed at him.
They were quiet for a moment. Alex put her backpack on a chair and sat back on the side of the bed. Carlos lied on the opposite side. He got the television remote and changed the channel from time to time until he found what he was looking for. He is now watching Cartoon Network.
"Childish." Alex whispered before she laid down on the bed. She got the pillow and put it in between her and Carlos.
"That isn't necessary." He said still smiling. "Do you want me to order food? We can order room service, or we can have food delivered from outside if you want. Aren't you hungry?"
"You can eat if you want. I don't have appetite. How many times do I have to tell you that?"
"Are you sad because you broke up with your girlfriend?" He asked.
"Then why don't you want to eat anything? I came here so I can get to know you more, but you don't want to hang out with me. I shouldn’t have stayed in the bus for hours just to meet you. You don’t even look happy when you saw me."
"Wow. You're really good in pretending. You should be an actor."
"Because I'm handsome right? Many people say that." Carlos said smiling. He stood up and look at his reflection in a small mirror posted on the wall.
Alex can't believe how confident he is. He is giving her a roller coaster of emotions. Sometimes she feels so angry because of his behaviour. At times, he makes her heart beat fast and makes her confused. And sometimes she makes her admire her confidence, in a negative way.
"Let's go out. We can do anything you want. You choose where we go or what food we eat. I will pay everything." Carlos said. He now feels so bored and wants to explore the city.
"You're so talkative!"
"If we don't go out, I will kiss you." Carlos threatened Alex.
"You can go out on your own. Why do you have to go out with me?"
"I will count until 5. 1"
"I will really kiss you. 3!"
Alex gets stressed with his counting and the next thing she knew, she was approaching Carlos and kiss him on the lips. It was a short kiss. Carlos was so shocked that he couldn't say anything.
"I said enough. Do you think I can't do that with you?" Alex said looking him straight to his face. Carlos was still shocked and is still not moving. He was stunned with what she did. She never expected that she would have the courage to kiss him. And he was only teasing her. He never thought that she would take it seriously.
Alex stood up and headed for the door. "What are you waiting for? I thought you are hungry. Let's go!" Alex said coldly.
“Can you do that again?” He said smiling.
“Will you come with me or what?”
Carlos got up immediately looking so happy.
Alex on the other hand looks so calm, like nothing happened but deep inside her, she is calling herself stupid. She never thought that she would panic and do what she is not supposed to do. She is scared that Carlos would misinterpret it.
The two took the stairs to go down. They were both quiet and felt awkward to each other. After getting out from the main entrance of the hotel, they stopped for a while and were waiting on who would take the next step. They actually don't know where to go so they are hoping that one of them would lead the way. Alex took the left side of the sidewalk, so Carlos followed her. They walked for 5 minutes until they reached a fast food restaurant.
"You said u are craving for burger. Let's eat here?" Alex finally spoke.
Carlos nodded as a response still smiling.
They ordered separately and paid separately as well. When they got their orders, they were surprised to see that both of them were holding paper bags.
"I would like to eat in the hotel." Carlos explained.
"Me too. I'm tired so I just want to take a rest. I thought you want to look around."
"I think it's just the same with my city, you know, most cities are similar these days. I can eat here. You can go to the hotel first if you don’t want to eat with me."
"Nope! We can go there together. I'm fine with that." Alex answered. She pretended to be cool with it when in fact she is shaking because of nervousness.
"Okay. Let's go back to the hotel then."
What would happen to the two when they have to stay together the whole night?
Carlos and Alex went back to the motel still very quiet. They can't help but to be awkward with each other and they also had to pretend like nothing happened. Actually, it is only Alex who feels awkward. Carlos has a fixed smile on his face and anyone who would see the two would think that he is a gentleman pursuing a girl he likes a lot.For Alex, she regretted kissing Carlos. Her main purpose for doing it was to stop him from talking but she never thought she would feel something different. There was like an electricity that attracts her to do it again.For Carlos, it was nothing but of course he doesn't want to fall for her or the other way around, that would make things complicated. He was happy at first to know that Alex is a lesbian so he thought it would be easy for them to pretend to be happily married after their wedding in front of their families.After arriving in their room, they both put their plastic bags of food on
They were in that position for a couple of minutes until Alex let go of him. "How can you enjoy kissing your bro? Are you gay?" She said. She then lied down on the bed like nothing happened and slept in an instant.Carlos was left frozen for a moment. He couldn't believe what just happened. He has to admit that he liked it and if she didn't stop kissing him, it might lead to a more passionate activity but he had to remind himself that she is still a minor, meaning he might go to jail if she complains.Carlos can't help himself but to stare at the woman sleeping beside him. She is not that bad. Actually, she’s kind of cute. Short hair suits her but imagining her having a long hair seems better. She is also sexy, and her body can be compared to a ramp model. Her curves are very obvious, and she has a good butt as well. Carlos can't help but to feel a desire growing inside of him, something that he shouldn't feel, especially that the
Mrs. Lopez and Alex went to her room to check for some clothes she could wear for tonight's event. Alex couldn't understand how her parents believed Carlos easily. She has been with her parents all her life and she realized that they don't know her that well. How can she change her identity that easily just because of a guy whom she just met? She's not even sure if Carlos has a girlfriend at the moment. All she knows is he is a playboy."How come your cabinet doesn't have any dress or blouses? I remember your granny always brings some for you whenever she visits." Alex's reverie was stopped by what her mom said. "Where did you put all those clothes?""I sent them away, Mom. You know I'm allergic to girly stuff. You are now like granny. I’m doubting now whether you really know me. Do you really believe that guy downstairs?" She asked."He seems nice to me, and he is very romantic. I really like him." Mrs. Lopez said with a sm
Alex acted to punch Carlos upon calling him a duck. "Do you want to die?""Haha! You're a cute duck. Is that enough? Are you happy now?" He continued laughing.Alex is becoming more and more confused each day, confused about how Carlos treats her. Sometimes he is sweet and sometimes he is a jerk. She is also confused about what she feels towards him. She finds him irritating but at the same time, she is happy to be spending time with him. He pisses her off many times, but she also finds this trait of him charming. She was certain about her identity in the past, but now, she is starting to have feelings of admiration to the opposite sex. She is starting to have feelings for Carlos.The dinner went smoothly. Carlos is a gentleman in front of Mr. and Mrs. Lopez. It's very obvious that the old couple are so happy to see them. They admire the supposed young couple in front of them. Although Alex doesn't feel comfortable, she pretended
Alex woke up the next day alone in her room. She was trying to remember what happened last night. She was sure Carlos slept beside her. She remembered cuddling each other to sleep but where is he now?She checked the clock on her bed side table. It says 9:43 a.m. It's a Sunday. Normally, she spends Sundays resting but today, she feels like she has all the energy to do any activity.She got in her bathroom after getting out from bed to take a shower. She wants to look fresh when she comes out from her room. Just the thought of spending this day with Carlos makes her feel excited. Now that she is sure about her feelings for the man, she would start acting like a real woman. Maybe it would take some time for her to get used to it.After taking a shower, she opened her wardrobe to look for clothes she can wear for today. All her clothes are men's clothing. Most of them are loose t-shirts, long shorts and jeans. She decided to choose s
She couldn't sleep that night. She couldn't understand what she feels. She is so mad at Carlos for not informing her about where he is or what he is doing. She is angry that he didn't even check on her. She knows how she can solve her problems. She just needs to call or send a message to Carlos first, but she couldn't give in to him. Sending a message or calling first would mean that she is admitting about her feelings for him. She never had this feeling before. She liked her ex-girlfriends and she maybe fell in love with some of them, but she never felt angry when they never sent her a message. She actually never cared if they pay attention to her or not.She was staring at her phone for many hours now, not knowing what to do. She hates herself for feeling like a fool thinking about someone who is maybe now feeling so relaxed and okay."Hello." She finally decided to call Carlos. The man answered the phone immediately with only a short
Alex and Carlos are finally a couple. Alex still can't believe that she would be involved in a relationship with the opposite sex. It is something new to her and something she never expected. She doesn't know how to act in as a girlfriend. When she had her partners, she was not thoughtful, and she was not the type who would show her feelings to them. She was caring to them, yes, but she never sent them messages first. She just meets them whenever she feels like it or when they asked her to meet. She could remember how demanding and clingy they were, and she doesn't know whether she should also act the same way to Carlos as them.The next day, Alex woke up happy. Being in love and being in a relationship with Carlos makes her look forward for the end of the week since they will be together for the first time as a couple. Thursday is still four days away, but she can't already contain her excitement.After taking a shower, she put on her u
Alex felt humiliated that day. She couldn’t stop thinking about what just happened. She’s sure that she is now the talk of the campus. It was not her first time to be the topic of almost all the students in MPIS. Many students in her school admire her for being a good basketball player and she became more and more famous after each game. Now, she will be talked about for having a boyfriend, something that no one ever imagined.“Why are you so quiet?” Carlos finally broke the silence. They are now in a cab Carlos hailed outside the school.“I don’t think I can go to school tomorrow. I can’t face my classmates. I also don’t want to answer all the questions they would throw at me.”
