I pressed my forefinger against my tragus while trying my best to walk properly towards the VIP couch where my friends are sitting. My other hand is holding my phone right on my ear but I can’t seem to understand kuya Sage’s words from the other line.
“What?!” I shouted, but my voice was overwhelmed with the loud music and plenty of screams everywhere.
“You- come- to-” I creased my forehead as I struggle to analyze whatever he wants to say. I’m already tipsy and the crowd is getting wild and wild every minute.
“I can’t hear you! Call you later! Bye!” I shouted at my phone and stuck it in my back pocket when I finally reached the couch.
“Hey Lea!” A guy from the same couch stood up to greet me. I don’t know him, actually, he wasn’t here earlier when I left this circle. I arched my brow at him. “Ah, I’m Jeffrey. I’m from the college of business and finance.” He held out his hand for a handshake and smiled exposing his couple of dimples.
I nodded and took his hand for a second of shake before I withdrew and proceeded to my seat at the center of the U-shaped couch. I heard some tease from my friends and a gasp from Jeffrey but I didn’t give a damn.
“It’s good that you’re back already. Jace texted me earlier, he’s looking for you.” Cora, my best friend beside me said.
I just shook my head and my eyes irked as I took my margarita. I shot a glass and leaned my back against the backrest and laid my head off at the top of it. I feel a little bit dizzy and light so I just closed my eyes. I already had 9 glasses of Cuervo before I danced with some random guys at the dance floor.
“Dare.” I heard Molina said. My friends cheered and they shared some giggles.
“Okay, I want you to French kiss-” I automatically opened my eyes and woke up from the incline when I heard what Brianna said. I can’t miss this show!
“What the hell, Bri!” Molina shouted laughing, even I was laughing too. I adjusted to sitting while continuing to listen to them.
“C’mon, it’s just 15 seconds!”
I felt Cora poked me so I turned to her. She leaned closer to me and whispered.
“I think the hottie over there has a thing for you.” I look at the same direction she’s pointing with her pouted lips.
There I saw a man crossing his arms over his chest. He’s wearing a white button-down shirt folded until his elbows, and paired with black jeans. His black luxury watch screams manliness.
“Okay, okay!” Molina surrendered after a bunch of complaint from our friends.
He’s sitting on the left side not so far from our table with two more guys of his age. I arched one of my brows when I met his glare. With his dark brooding eyes, perfectly pointed nose, thin ass lips and fuck… that sexy jaw, I thought he would divert his eyes but the God tier visual didn’t even flinch when I caught him staring at me.
“Listen to me Moli, you’ll serve 15 seconds of French kiss to the first guy who’ll pass by this area. I know you can do it girl!” Said Brianna.
“You go girl!”
My friends were busy for Molina’s show and here I am, staring back at the stranger with sleepy eyes ‘coz I’m barely pulling my shits together.
“Hey princess, he’s about to melt.” Cora whispered again in my ear. I ignored her.
This is my first time seeing him. Something in this guy is making me stare at him for more and more, it’s like he’s getting a little hotter as I look, so I wouldn’t miss a second of this sight.
“Oh my goood!”
“Go Moli! That’s my girl!
I was startled by the shouting of my friends so I turned to Moli who was outside our table and kissing a man. She’s locking the man’s face by holding both of his jaw and the man is supporting her waist. They exchanged turns while kissing and gained some cheers from the crowd. The man’s figure is familiar but I don’t know.
They spent more than 15 seconds kissing in front of us that even those who are dancing in the dancefloor and drinking beside our couch are watching.
“Hey! That’s enough! It’s only 15 seconds isn’t it?!” Brianna groaned so the two stopped. I was surprised when the man confronted us.
“Omg, Jace?!” It was Cora.
“Oh my God!” Brianna exclaimed.
Moli couldn’t look at me in shock either. I looked at Jace as if bragging to me. Dude, you got no balls, remember? I stared at him and turned to my companions.
“Ugh, stop it, it feels disgusting.” My complaint.
Jace and I were done a long time ago. I don’t know what’s the big deal with them when I totally got over him already. I just looked back at the hottie guy. He’s now busy listening to the girl beside her. It wasn’t there before, was it? Now their table is filled with 4 girls and 3 boys. The guy on his right has two girls, that’s why.
The bitch was pathetically laughing while whispering at him, she’s even holding his arm and pinching it a little. Oh this s****.
“Okay, next one!” The guy beside Molina announced getting all our members back to their places.
I looked at them and leaned towards our table so I got all their attention. “Dare.” I said with a hint of pre-amusement in my eyes.
“Huh? We’ll drop our bet first.” Brianna said.
I look at her with my dagger eyes.
“I said. Dare.”
They all went silent and exchanged glance at each other.
“Okay!” Cora clapped beside me.
I grinned before sitting up and leaning back on the couch. I raised my brow at her. “Kiss the hottie guy.” She commanded and I celebrated quietly in my head. You’re really my best friend.
“The hottie who? Where?” Brianna asked.
Cora secretly pointed at him and they all went shock as they look at the Greek God sitting like a king, three couches away from us.
“Holy motherfucker, it’s just me!” Brianna shouted.
“Fuck off Bri,” I warned and her lips formed an ‘O’ shape then she laughed.
“Oh my god, who is he? I haven’t seen him here before.” Molina whispered. I glanced at her and smiled.
“Whatever his name is, he’ll still be mine. So calm your tits and sit back here.” I said before standing.
“But wait, wait!” I stopped mid-air of my first step when I heard Brianna. I rolled my eyes at her. “Kiss is so cliché…” she said with a hint of idea in her tone.
“What are you suggesting Brianna?” Jeffrey asked annoyingly.
“Well, I’m sure man of his kind already had so many kisses before. Why not… make it more daring and memorable?” She explained while looking at us.
“Should I fuck him?” I joked and they all gasped.
“What the hell, Lea!” Moli laughed so I laughed too.
“What?” I asked half laughing.
“Strip.” Brianna said.
We all fell silent.
I looked at her and waited for her to add ‘joke’ but she stayed smiling like an idiot to me. “You want me to skin you alive, bitch?” I asked.
They just laughed and waited for her reply. “I think you can… take your top off and give it to him as a souvenir?” They all burst into laughter except for me and Jeffrey.
For a moment, I think Cora is not my best friend. Brianna you bitch, you hit the button!
I smirked and looked at my outfit. I’m wearing an opera-mauve sequined sleeveless crop top, paired with black jeans and an ankle strap heels. Anyways I’m wearing a black string bikini top underneath my top so it’s not a problem. I just hope this won’t reach my kuyas.
“Sure.” I whispered before turning my gaze to Cora and mouthed ‘watch me’ before heading my way to his direction.
I heard them cheered and I could feel all of their eyes at my back while I walk. All of my inhibitions are gone now because of that motherfucking woman beside him. I watched her flirt him for a couple of times before I reached their table. That’s enough fella, it’s my turn now.
I was immediately noticed by the two men next to him so they arranged to sit down. I looked straight at the woman’s hand resting on his chest. When they both notice my presence, they both look up to me at once.
“Oh, hi miss Eleanor!” Huh, the audacity of this worm to greet me. I know that my family is well known here in La Cuevas, but I’m not informed that the underworld creatures know us too!
I just raised an eyebrow at her, I don’t know how many times I’ve raised an eyebrow in the past hour. I walked right in front of them. When I looked at the burly man holding a glass of wine, my knees almost gave out. Why is he so big now that he’s up close?!
“Auntie, can you move a little?” I asked the whore beside him with full of control.
“Wh-what did you-” I cut her off by giving her my deadly look. Damn, she looks so stupid.
I just rolled my eyes and lifted my right foot and placed it in between them, cornering the hot guy.
“Whoa,” I heard his companions.
The man looked straight at me. Not even terrified. I grabbed the hem of my crop top and gently lifted it. I even heard her friend spit out what she was drinking when my black string bikini top appeared. The other adjacent tables were whispering as well.
Slowly… I was about to take it off completely when the sound of the glass he dropped on the glass table suddenly clinked.
To my shock, I stop and almost jumped. I lowered my foot to the floor. What the hell? He stood up and picked up his coat lying on the chair before pulling down my crop top to put on again.
To my shock I could not speak. Since he is much taller than me, I have to look up at him.
I felt dumbfounded when he wrapped his fragrant coat around me and pulled me on my elbow out of their table.
“I’ll go now.” He said goodbye to his companions before continuing to pull me over. My eyes widened as I remembered my friends.
“W-wait!” I protested but he did not listen to me. “Wait! My friends are still-”
“Shut up.” I covered my mouth because of the coldness of what he said. Oh my god, who the hell is he to shut me up?! I am fucking Azalea Bernice Eleanor and nobody stops me!
I remained silent until we got out of ABC. It’s Adam’s Bar/Club and I am allowed to enter even if I’m a minor because I’m an Eleanor. Without me, my friends will be kicked out from there, that’s why I’m worried!
“Get in.” He commands after opening a BMW for the shotgun seat. I frowned at him.
“Who are you? Where are you gonna take me, huh?” I was finally able to ask questions. He just looked at me as if I had nothing to answer. “Hey, I said-”
“I said shut the fuck up.” I was stunned again by his baritone voice! My god, he should be punished for stepping down onto my ego!
Eventually my weakness persisted and I just went in, my friends saw his face so they could still find me wherever this man took me. He turned in the driver’s seat and started the car.
I wanted to ask again where he would take me, but I was scared and I might shut up again. I just removed his coat from my shoulder and threw it in the backseat. It’s not like I’m getting cold.
I took my cellphone out of my pocket and texted Cora to bring my stuff. I also texted brother Sage that I might not be coming home tonight because who knows where this drop dead gorgeous man would take me. I’m in favor with anywhere anyway. I slapped my own cheek to dismiss the thought. Damn it, Lea you can’t just give yourself to a stranger just because he’s hot! What are you still doing here?!
But in the end, I didn’t object, oh God is this it? Are we really gonna do it? Am I ready? I don’t even know his name for fuck’s sake!
I gulped and cleared my throat. After minutes of silence, my phone rang and I saw older brother Sage’s name on the screen. I rolled my eyes before answering. “Ye-”
“Azalea Bernice Eleanor!” I automatically distanced my phone from my precious ears when my loud ass brother yelled my whole holy name.
“What?!” I spat back.
“I told you that you need to be home before two, and now you’re saying you’re not coming home?!” He exclaimed. “Didn’t you see Gavin at ABC? I told him to fetch you there.”
My forehead frowned. “Gavin? Who’s Gavin?” I will ask. I don’t know anyone like that. “Maybe Gabriel? Wait, you’re close with my ex, brother?”
“It’s Gavin, you brat, Gavin. Damn we’re dead tomorrow if you won’t come home tonight!” He added.
“But I don’t know that Gavin I said- hey!” I was startled when the man next to me snatched my iPhone.
“Sage,” he started. My eyes rolled. How does he knew my brother?! Wait, we’re famous around Cebu so I think- “Yes, I’m driving her home now.” And he fucking knows where we live?! But I just saw him here, maybe he’s a stalker? I knew it! He’s stalking me!
“No problem.” He said before handing me my phone.
My eyes narrowed as I accepted that. He didn’t even look at me. He looked straight down the road as if he had no beautiful woman in the car! I gasped in the air before putting my cellphone to my ear.
“It’s me.” I boredly said.
“At least now I’m rest assured that you’re safe with Gavin. Stop fooling me around and don’t give him a hard time, okay?” said kuya Sage.
Wait what?! This guy is Gavin?!
I rolled my eyes and turned to the man next to me. And what have you heard me before? That he’s bringing me to this man?! So I was the purpose of it at the bar earlier but he even managed to flirt instead of taking me home?!
“What do you mean? Wh-who the fuck is this guy, kuya?!” I raised my voice in confusion. I faced the road with my forehead furrowed.
“What? Did you forget him already? He’s Gavin, Lea. Our cousin.” My lips parted and I felt my tongue cut out. The iPhone would have been almost slippery in the palm of my hand if I hadn’t just immediately laid it on my thigh.
I was dumbfounded along the way as my brain processed what kuya Sage had said.
The man beside me is Gavin, and he’s my cousin. He went to the same bar I am at to pick me up and then there I am, who almost stripped off in front of him like a wild and mad liberated teen. I even thought of silly things with him earlier. And worst, if my kuyas and daddy would know about that, I’m fucking dead!
Oh my god… I want to get out of this car. NOW!
I threw myself on the soft bed. I blew a lot of air when I realized I hadn’t been breathing since I got out of Gavin’s car.
I’m still wearing the dress and heels I put for the night out earlier, as if I don’t want to move. My mind was too busy with what had happened. I just want to turn back time so I have never done that shameful move!
What will he think? That I flirted with him even though we were cousins? But I didn’t know! How am I going to face him tomorrow? I even heard that he will sleep here tonight. Shit, I don’t want to see him again!
Did he complain to brother Sage? those people at the bar who saw us, they used to see me like that at the bar, but what if they found out he was my cousin?
My eyes widened at my own thought. Oh my God! I can’t let that happen! I Immediately got my phone out of my pocket and dialed Adam’s number. He’s 24, but I don’t call him brother. Seconds later and he picked it up.
“Fuck, Adam, I need your help.” I sat down my bed and tucked my phone between my ears and left shoulder while unbuckling the strap of my heels.
“What? Why?” I could hear the loud noise of the music on his background.
“I need you to find those who saw me earlier at your bar, tell them they didn’t see me in the bar tonight. I want everyone to shut up.” I hook the straps on my fore and middle finger before standing up and walk towards my walk-in closet.
“Damn, kid, I heard you stri-”
“Say it and you’re dead, Salonga.” I hung up as I toss my heels at the corner of its kind.
I went out of there and threw my phone on my bed this time. It’s already past two in the morning so I’m sure my dad is on his way back home. He’s been on a business trip in Thailand so I was free to go clubbing while he’s not around.
I’m still seventeen and this coming school year I’ll be in my last year of senior high. I’m the youngest among us three. Lorenzo is the eldest, in fact, he has a son and he’s getting married this month. He’s also a general surgeon and I think he’s already 30 or 31? I’m not sure.
Sage is my partner in crime. He’s a college student taking business, last year he was this coming school year and even though he’ll participate in our business, he wants to pursue music more than any other professions. He’s three years older than me.
When I entered the shower, minutes of my almost stripping show came flashing back in my mind. Fuck, now, how could I possibly sleep after that?!
The next morning, I feel so heavy. It was 8:14 am and I just slept for about 3 hours, I think? Overthinking really has its own way of ruining my body clock.
When I tried to get up, my headache hissed. I think I still have a hangover. I forced myself to stand up and yawning went to the bathroom to wash. When I finished, I combed my hair and came out of the bathroom in a white t-shirt and dolphin shorts.
I left the room and went to the kitchen to get some water. I frowned walking when I caught sight of older brother Sage and Gavin sitting and talking. I was stunned for a moment and swallowed. I almost forgot he was still here!
I was nervous but I didn’t move, in the end, I just ignored them. I was about to go straight to the kitchen when Sage noticed me and called me.
“Oh, Lea, come here. I didn’t wake you up because you definitely still have a hangover.”
I stopped walking and secretly slapped my older brother in my mind. When I looked back at them, Gavin didn’t even look at me. He just kept on eating. Well, that’s even better for it’s less awkward. I just hope he didn’t tell my older brother about the outrage I did last night. Thinking of those moments makes me feel so cringe and wants to vomit.
I reluctantly walked towards them. I pulled up the chair next to brother Sage and sat there. The maid automatically poured water and juice for me. Gavin was in front of us, opposite of Sage.
My older brother put rice and a dish on my plate. “Sage, I’m on a diet. No rice for now.” I whispered at him. When I finished pouring water into my glass, I immediately swallowed and drank.
“Diet my ass. Does your head hurt?” He asked while chewing. I just nodded before lowering the glass and started moving the dish. My older brother handed me a cup of coffee.
I occasionally glance at Gavin but it seems like I just don’t affect him. He’s wearing a navy-blue polo shirt. I think it’s Sunspel Riviera’s, because it looks like the one I gave to dad on his 52nd birthday. I also noticed that he was wearing a different Rolex.
My older brother kept talking even though I didn’t understand anything. Occasionally Gavin answers but he doesn’t look at me. When he finished eating, he looked at me.
To my surprise, what I was eating stuck in my throat and I coughed a few times. A maid quickly attended and poured water into the glass. While I was drinking that I couldn’t look at him.
“Hey, are you okay?” Kuya Sage asked.
I nodded after drinking. “Y-yeah, I’m done now.” I declared then stood up.
“Hey, eat well! wait, will you come later?” Kuya Sage suddenly asked so I stopped.
“Huh? What’s up?” I asked.
He gave me his poker disappointed face. “Drag race.” He said. I immediately got that kuya Loren has another fight. He was the only one and Dad who’s drag racing in us. Kuya Sage has a band.
“Will dad watch?” I asked.
He shook his head, “His schedule is hectic this week. Come along, Gavin will participate and we’ll see who’s better.” Kuya Sage laughed and Gavin shook his head lightly.
I wouldn’t have come but I was surprised to learn that he was also drag racing. I was excited to see his performance. I raised an eyebrow as I looked at him. He drank some water and pulled out his cellphone when it rang from his pocket.
“Excuse me.” He stood up and walked into the living room, then I noticed his black jeans. Why does he looks so dashing even in his simplest attire? I quickly shaken and dismissed the thought. Damn I need to stop being attracted to him. If I had only known right away that I was his cousin, I wouldn’t be like this.
I had many handsome relatives, and especially my older brothers, but I was never attracted to them. My God, insert Lee Minho’s ‘disgusting shit’.
I had left my older brother in the dining room and was about to go back to the room to get dressed because I was going to do a facial, when I passed Gavin in the living room with his back facing me as he spoke.
“I’m sorry, Sadie, I’ll take you here soon.” I stopped walking.
I’m curious, yes, especially to the woman’s name he mentioned. I wanted to listen more, but there were maids passing by and I didn’t want them to think I was a gossip so I just kept walking until I reached the stairs.
I haven’t even talked to him about what I did last night. I don’t know if I should apologize or thank him because he didn’t tell about it to anyone in the house. Ah, well, I also don’t want to talk to him because it’s awkward!
The race is still tonight, so I still have time to do a facial with Arthuro, my favorite salon owner. I fixed up and asked our driver to drive me there. I spent 3-4 hours in his salon, because I also combined my hair treatment and nail polish. I would have liked to go shopping, but I’m tired of sitting so I want to go to bed.
I picked up our driver and went home immediately. I regained sleep in the afternoon and woke up at 5:30 pm.
7 is the start of the race so I hurried to get ready. I wore my black sleeveless mini dress from Chanel, paired with a black platform high heels from YSL tributes, it was just sent by their branch from New York. I chose a set of silver accessories from Tiffany and Co. I let my hair down and keep them all at my back after putting my makeup. I made my eyes looks simply and I put on a dark red lipstick.
“Lea, there you are again with your dirt, you’re taking too long. Let’s go.” It was kuya Sage outside my door.
I made face while choosing which perfume should I use. “Coming!” I shouted back before spraying my Chanel ‘Allure’ perfume and got out of my room.
We arrived at the venue at 7:15, it was already crowded but we had no trouble getting to our VIP seat in the front where the vehicles were clearly visible. There is also a large screen at the top and from time to time the cameramen focus the camera on me and my brother so I had to fake a smile.
We’ve got some body guards with us around the field but they’re here only to observe and monitor our safety. They will not come out if we do not call them and there is no emergency.
I saw Cora with Brianna walking towards us.
“Girl, why didn’t you read our messages?!” Hysterically says Brianna.
I just nodded and stepped aside so they could sit down. When they saw kuya Sage they both looked embarrassed so they just kept quiet. Next to me was older brother and Cora and next to her was Brianna. Cora leaned closer to me and whispered.
“What happened last night, huh? Where did you go? Did you know all the alcohol was free last night just so no one would gossip that you were about to undress?”
I was stunned and didn’t know what to answer, “A-ah, no… I was just taken home. And you know, that can’t get to my brothers so that’s it.” I admitted.
“Sus, really? Nothing happened? With that hottie, Azalea Bernice, you didn’t give in?” I frowned at her because my older brother might hear her.
“Tone down your voice, Cora, kuya might hear us!” I whispered a shout at her.
She just glared at me before answering, “C’mon, what’s that guy’s name? Didn’t you ask?” She was still curious. Brianna was busy taking selfies so she didn’t notice us.
“No.” I answered before diverting my full attention to the field. The participants were ready next to their dragsters, I saw kuya Loren talking to Gavin in the back of his twin turbo Lamborghini Huracan. He’s wearing a yellow and black racing suit while Gavin is in his light blue and black racing suit. He looks dashing and incredibly hot, I must admit.
The referee whistled and the people began to make noise. I didn’t even understand what the announcer was saying as he read the standings of the racers.
A few moments later, older brothers Loren and Gavin said goodbye to each other. They went back to their dragster and I saw an Aston Martin Valkyrie that Gavin will use.
“Damn that’s nice.” Kuya Sage whispered, looking at Gavin as well.
I was silently watching him when someone suddenly approached us from the National Hot Rod Association and handed us two iPhones. One I recognize was kuya Loren’s because of its black bumper case.
I accepted that both and inserted into my pouch.
“Thanks,” I said. When I turned my gaze back to the chin I saw that the dragsters were already lined up and one by one the racers were being introduced.
Kuya’s code name is ‘Acer’ and Gavin’s is ‘Black Raven’.
“Gavin Wyatt Eleanor…” I repeated the name mentioned by the announcer. The women shuddered because of the new Eleanor they saw.
“What the fuck?!” Brianna cried when she heard Gavin’s name. She turned to me in shock, “T-that’s him, isn’t he? The guy last night? Did I hear it right, Lea?!” I widened my eyes at her so she would lower her voice.
“I’ll explain everything tomorrow, my God, let’s not talk about that here.” I whispered to them. Cora, on the other hand, was just an idiot and looked back and forth between me and Gavin below.
As the racers burnout I felt my purse vibrate. I opened my pouch and grabbed the two iPhones, it wasn’t Loren’s phone but the other one. It’s color space gray without a case. When I turned it on, I saw the notification on its lock screen. It was a message from ‘Sadie’. I raised an eyebrow. So this is Gavin’s phone, huh?
‘Okay, just be careful. I miss you. ‘
I creased my forehead when I read the text. Is this his girlfriend? I remember her talking to Gavin on the phone earlier.
“What’s the matter?” Kuya Sage asked.
“Does Gavin have a sister?” I asked out of nowhere.
Sage just creased his forehead. “He’s an only child, Lea. How can you forget?”
I inhaled in annoyance. So who was that? “You know I never met him!” I said.
He just clicked his tongue and shook his head. I just shrugged the thought off and put it back inside my purse.
I diverted my attention to the track and cleared my throat as the girl raised the green flag. I immediately shifted my seat while waiting for the gun to give the cue, and when it did after a minute, my heart raced along the racers down the field.
“Go Black Raven! Oh my god!”
“Acer for the win!”
“Did you see Black Raven?! He’s so hot!”
I winced at the shouts of the women behind us. Four racers were fighting, I realized that Gabriel was also one of them operating the yellow McLaren.
Kuya Loren and Gavin lead them. Gabriel chases but he can’t keep up with kuya’s speed. People were screaming at the smooth drift that kuya Loren made. It looks like he will win again. I smirked, but everyone was so quiet that Gavin quickly chased after him and went with Loren.
Trembling rumbled in my chest as I watched the cars almost fly away.
The audience roared again and no longer knew whose name to shout. Gabriel and your other racer also caught up in a Rimac.
As the second lap approached, Gavin and kuya were evenly spaced ahead as Gabriel’s McLaren sped faster and faster. The announcer says he can exceed his dial-in but he still continues to push.
I was shaken when it went on to breakout. What the hell, he cheats at everything. Tss. It was quickly recorded as a foul so he went back to normal speed.
“Shit baby!” Complaint of the woman behind me.
“That’s foul.” My older brother whispered to me.
It was also quickly forgotten by the audience when the second lap started which was still led by older brother Loren.
The four did not stop running and when they reached the finish line, kuya won.
Cora and Brianna and I were jumping when the race was over. I hugged older brother Sage while shouting in e******.
Cora and Brianna say goodbye and leave because Cora will meet her boyfriend, the actress.
“Sure, let’s just meet tomorrow to get my things.” I said.
“Bye! Be careful, bye, Sage!” Brianna bid her goodbye.
“Bye, Bri,” the older brother replied Cora’s goodbye and she made a flustered face.
“Alright, please tell kuya Loren, congrats.” He said before they veered off course.
We quickly walked out of there and headed downstairs. The people were crowded but separated whenever they saw us passing by. Brother Sage held my hand as he was in front of me and preceded our walk.
When I arrived at the field, I immediately ran towards my older brother who was removing his protective helmet.
“Kuya!” I shouted as I walked towards him, I was a little hard because of the heels and short dress but it was okay. When he saw me he quickly hugged me and lifted me up. “Congratulations! You’re great!” I said as I hugged him.
When I let go he messed up my hair, he smiled. “Thank you, brat.” He returned the helmet inside his Lamborghini.
“Congrats bro, that was hella cool.” Brother Sage.
Kuya Loren sneered at him and patted him on the back. “Is it okay?” He bragged. We laughed, I noticed that kuya Loren was waiting for something because he had been looking behind him for a while. When I looked at it, I was stunned because Gavin was approaching us.
“Hey, Wyatt, nice play.” Courtesy of kuya Loren. Gavin stopped on my left side so I backed away a bit so we weren’t close.
“Congrats,” she replied as she straightened her curly hair. They patted their backs before kuya Sage spoke to Gavin. The women mobbed us so I backed away. Kuya Sage is busy with the women talking to him, while kuya Loren is taking a lot of pictures.
A few more elbows hit my side so I frowned. “Hey, slow down- fuck.” I was pushed to my left when someone hit my right shoulder and went straight to older brother Loren.
The women came one after the other so I was quickly irritated. Because I was on heels, I quickly lost my balance and almost fell over if not for the stiff arm over my waist. I was stunned when my back hit its hard chest.
I turned to him quickly and my lips parted when I saw Gavin’s serious look. I now lean in front of him as I meet his dark eyes and furrowed forehead. Seems like he’s still against it to catch me?!
My forehead also frowned and I pulled his hand away and left leaning on his chest. I turned to face him and it was right that someone hit me in the back so I squeezed him. What the hell, the scent! I closed my eyes tightly and restrained myself from sniffing his neck. Oh, damn, this is bad.
“Lea!” I jumped when I heard brother Loren’s voice. I rolled my eyes and quickly pulled away from Gavin but I was so shocked when he squeezed my back again so I sank in front of his chest!
“Lorenzo, I think your sister’s sick.” He said in a low tone that surprised me. What? Me, sick? Nothing, ah! I struggled but he hugged me tightly. “I’ll take her home. You can go celebrate with your friends.” He added.
Huh?! Why are we going home? I want to eat out! “Hey, you motherfu-” I was cut off when he pressed my head with one hand to his chest.
“She’s crying.” He told my brothers.
“What? What happened? Lea, what’s wrong?” Kuya Lorenzo asked but I couldn’t answer.
“I’ll take care of her, we’ll go now.” He said goodbye before pulling me away from there. I tried to withdraw my hand but he held on tightly.
“Hey, hey! Let me go!” I shouted at him, fortunately and almost everyone’s attention was on brother Loren so no one noticed what he was doing to me. “And what do you mean I’m sick, huh? I am perfectly fine, you idiot!”
I stopped walking when he suddenly faced me and ate our distance.
I backed away. “Be thankful that you’re wearing a dress, I can’t carry you out of here. Now shut up and walk or I’ll drag you at any cost.” His eyes were serious as he held my hand tightly, I wasn’t in pain, but I couldn’t get away either.
I was led by the fear that he might not be joking and drag me out of here. I decided to just keep quiet and frown to obey even though I didn’t know if he would really take me home or take me somewhere. Why is he always pulling me? He’s been dragging me since last night!
