Lust: Chapter 4 Excerpt
“We should be going too, Chris.” Tavi said standing up and stretching. He was more reserved than Chris. I didn’t have a problem with him. Other than him being a friends with Chris.
“Yeah, I’m tired of beating up on these guys. I don’t want to leave Danielle waiting.”
“Danielle, the blonde girl” Jonathan asked.
“Yeah, did you know she was an Eagles cheerleader?” Chris still had that grin on his “Well, she’s going to be at the party. She’s waiting on me.” his smile returned. He was making this a game. Who can talk to one of the prettiest girls on campus.
“Oh, well you shouldn’t keep her waiting.”
The purple glow return and Chris noticed me looking. “You got a problem?”
“With you, never.” I said. I was holding the door.
“You are so, arrogant.” he said finally stepping outside the door. Tavi followed.
“That’s the pot calling the kettle black.” Jonathan chimed in again. I noticed he was glowing too. A very faint red, almost pinkish hue. Tavi was glowing cyan. Did they see it themselves? If so, they weren’t acting like it. Once again the glows faded.
“I’m not arrogant, you know what they say. It’s not arrogance if you can back it up. I’m better than you two. I’m smarter, I’m taller, hell I’m bigger than both of you. It’s only a matter of time before Bob places me in your position at work. You can’t stand the fact that I’m a freshman and you’re going to be replaced.
He wasn’t wrong, I guess. I didn’t want to lose my job. But I know they love me at work. I literally can do no wrong. I don’t even have to try to make them like me. My work spoke for itself. Computers came easy to me and the job was easy. I only did it because it didnt’ take up too much of my time from studying Pharmacy. I know I was in no danger of being replaced, especially by Chris. In fact, they were talking about transferring him to another department. I should tell him that, knock his ego down. If I were Jonathan, I would of. There is always a time and place to drop bombs. This wasn’t the time.
Chris was more frighten of me than I was of him. For whatever reason, he made me his goal. I’m sure the only reason he made friends with Tavi, was so that he could have his own Jonathan. He didn’t realize Jonathan and I really did like each other. I didn’t force or manipulate Jonathan into being my friend. We clicked, just like we all clicked with David.
“Look, Jonathan and I have to get dress to go, are you done with your superiority complex?”
“You act like you’re not scared, but I see through you.”
“Okay, Superman, I’m afraid. Happy?”
His grin was maniacal. He stepped back from the door. “You stay away from Danielle. She’s mine. I’m going to make her my wife. If you even so much come near her again.”
Was he delusional? I didn’t want her, like she didn’t want him. “You sound creepy, stop trying to be tough.”
He pretended to hit me. Throwing his fist and stopping short of my face. I don’t know why, but I could tell he wasn’t going to connect. “Just remember who the bigger one is.”
“How can we, your stomach reminds us everytime we see you.” Jonathan said. I started to laugh.
