“Oh my God, hide me!” Mason hissed as he shut the door quietly behind him and began turning off lights. “Oh, are you making pancakes? Do you have bacon too?”
My face fell even though he couldn’t see me. “Well, I was making pancakes until you made it pitch-black in here. And even if I did, I wouldn’t make any. I’m tired. Why aren’t you guys making me food? And why did you turn off all the lights?”
“I’m hiding,” Mason yell-whispered at the same time Kash turned the kitchen light back on and said, “He’s hiding from one of the managers at his bar.”
“Uh, and you have to hide from your boss . . . here?” I actually pouted. I wanted alone time with Kash.
Kash chuckled beside me and kissed my cheek before grabbing the spatula out of my hand and moving me aside. “Considering he probably just left her naked in our apartment, yeah, he needs to hide here.”
“Shut it, Rach!” He jumped away from the window like his boss would come flying through it. “She’s freakin’ crazy.”
“Well, what’d you do to her? Er . . . besides sleep with her?”
“Nothing, I did nothing! She’s just clingy as shit. She started crying because I told her she couldn’t move in with me.”
I stopped pouring syrup on my pancakes and looked up at him. “How long have you been sleeping with her?”
“This is the first time.” When I shot him a look, he threw his hands in the air. “Swear, Rach. First. Time. When we finished she asked when she could move her stuff in; I wasn’t even out of her yet.”
“Ew, Mase! I don’t want details!”
“Whatever. I thought she was joking so I just laughed and took care of some stuff. When I came back she asked again, and I told her she couldn’t. She instantly started crying and screaming at me, asking me what tonight meant then. And she’s refusing to leave!”
I grabbed a fork and my plate and walked to the front door, patting Mason’s chest with my free hand on the way there. “You picked a good one.”
“Where are you going?” Kash asked from the kitchen.
I didn’t look back at him. I just shrugged and opened the door. “Damage control.”
I walked over to the boys’ apartment and made myself comfortable on the couch. As soon as the TV was on, Mason’s bedroom door opened and a gorgeous mess of a woman stepped out. Still. Naked.
Focusing on her mascara-streaked face, I gave her a head nod and looked back at the TV before taking a bite of pancakes.
“Who are you?” She poured as much venom into her words as was possible while still crying, and I shrugged again as I spoke around the pancakes.
“Mason’s sister. You?”
Her head jerked back. “Mason’s sister? What are you doing here?”
“I live here. What’d you say your name was again?”
“Uh, I didn’t.” She looked quickly at Kash’s bedroom door, then back to Mason’s. “You live here?”
“Yep. Good performance, by the way. Sounded pretty impressive.” Her eyes got huge and it took everything in me not to laugh and begin choking on the pancakes I was shoveling in at an alarming rate. “You know, my fiancé lives next door. Maybe next time we can have a screaming match. Or see who lasts longer. It could be fun.”
I had put my attention back on the TV so I wouldn’t have to look at her, but when I could still see her out of the corner of my eye and she didn’t make a sound, I finally turned to look at her again. She looked like she was in shock and disgusted. At least she’d stopped crying.
We stared at each other for a few seconds longer and I finally held my plate out toward her. “Pancakes?”
Sanity seemed to settle back over her face and she darted into Mason’s room. My shoulders shook with silent laughter and I had to fan at my face, which I knew was bright red from holding it in. I was taking another deep breath to control myself when she ran out, now clothed.
“See you next time, Melanie!”
She stopped short of the front door and looked at me like I belonged in an asylum. “My name’s—never mind. Tell Mason I’ll, uh, see him at work.”
I was laughing so hard that I was still crying by the time I made it back to my apartment. Both guys were standing at the window, eating pancakes.“What’d you do?” Mason asked in awe. “She ran to her car.”
