Tasting All My Mates by Alexis Dee Chapter 172
172-He Wants To Change For Her!
I returned to the room and after several hours of endless silence, night had arrived. We were as usual sitting in awkward silence and working on our assignments.
Maynard was sleeping in the bed without a care in the world. Christina, who seemed to have been listening to music and copying the assignment from Poppy, finally finished her work and started looking around for something to do.
“Do you need my help?” she asked her brother in her high-pitched voice.
“Nah! I don’t want to copy work,” his comment was simple but left no effect on Christina. He then looked around his eyes met with mine. I bowed my face down and pretended to be engrossed in work. Thiago was trying to work silently and Lazio had decided to take a little rest before he continues working again.
“Enya!” hearing my name being called by Zander made everyone raise their heads and look at us, “Can you help me with this?” he used a subtle tone and a very calming way to address me. I have never spoken to him so causally so him asking for my help was a shocker.
“I don’t know. I am not good at it either,” I tried to excuse my way out but he wasn’t going to quit.
“See!” he got up nonetheless and reached my chair. My heart missed a beat when he stood behind me and dropped his file on my table. I know Thiago was watching his moves but he wasn’t too possessive enough to jump on anyone who dares ask for my help or tries to talk to me.
“Help me understand this,” Zander said after he had dragged his sister’s chair near me, Christina had just got out of the chair and he took the chance to steal it. She didn’t like it.
“I can help you with this,” surprisingly, Lazio jumped out of the bed and tapped his fingers on the file.
“Well, I don’t like your teaching method,” Zander steadily pushed his hand to the side.
“I know what you are looking forward to. You are never getting that,” Lazio growled, making Zander to scoff at him. I was sitting there awkwardly and waiting for them to finish it. As I stared at the file, I realized why Zander needed help. He had written the question all wrong.
“The question is wrong,” I whispered, breaking their attention to me, “Here!” I grabbed a pen and jotted the correct one for him.
“Oh! Thank you,” He said before taking his file and leaving for his chair. I had to give Lazio a disapproving look for him to back down. He didn’t have to act like every guy walking in my direction wants to fuck me. I know Zander is not trustworthy but I wouldn’t want to be secured like I am some treasure.
Lazio rolled his eyes and jumped in the bed again. It was then I watched Thiago just staring at us with his head resting against the wall.
He wouldn’t really come out of his shell until it is needed. He was passionate and jealous at times but he wouldn’t really show it and control me from whom I am talking to.
Christina, who had been standing near the side and feeling all jealous, planned to give us some action back. Her eyes landed on the sleepy prince and what seemed like an evil idea popped up in her head.
She first put on a huge smile and then in one fell swoop, she snatched the blanket off Maynard.
“Wake up!” she yelled playfully. Maynard didn’t raise his face and tried reaching for the blanket again.
“No! you have to wake up. Come on now, I am bored,” she was shouting in her shrieky voice, deafening us all.
“Maynard!” she then jumped on his back and spread her legs open to ride him. As she started jumping on his back, we all shared glances and then watched Zander groaning and glaring at her.
It was an unpleasant sight to see.
“What the fuck is wrong with you? Get the fuck off me,” Well, as expected. Maynard woke up and decide to toss her to the side in anger. He did it so aggressively that she didn’t get a chance to prevent falling off the bed.
Zander raised when he saw his sister falling down and hitting her elbow hard enough on the floor to bleed.
“Maynard! I will fucking kill you!” Zander yelled as he helped his sister up. Thiago and Lazio jumped off their sitting positions to rush between the boys because Maynard had gotten out of bed, reading to charge at anyone who questions his actions.
“YOUR SISTER WAS RIDING ME LIKE I AM HER DOG, SHE RUINED MY SLEEP AND YOU WILL KILL ME?” Maynard shouted, spreading his shoulders wide and glaring into Zander’s soul. Christina had hidden her face in her brother’s chest to cry without getting seen by any of us.
I didn’t raise up from my seat, this whole situation didn’t concern me. Christina shouldn’t have walked into the devil’s den and pat him awake.
She did it just to get back at me for helping her brother, she got her karma.
“Everybody easy up!” Thiago spread his hands and placed them on either of their chests to push them away a little. At this point, he was the only one who could do it.
“Let’s go get you cleaned up.” Zander passed Maynard one last deadly glare before he pulled his sister away from Maynard, who sat down and covered his face in his hands. I watched Thiago and Lazio watching him but not getting closer because of me.
“it’s okay.” I mouthed them. Just because Maynard and I had broken off doesn’t mean the others have to stop talking to him as well.
But before any decision could be made, Maynard got up from the bed and left the room. He would definitely go to the rooftop after taking the permission. The awkwardness subsided when the lights were set out.
Everybody had fallen asleep except for me and Christina, who was using her phone. I couldn’t stop thinking about what Thiago said today.
Is he really going to let me accept someone just so that I can stay healthy?
My worries withered away when the door opened and Maynard barged into the dark. I felt his footsteps reaching my bed and stopping for a moment. My heart flipped in my throat, wondering what he was doing until he walked away and climbed into the bed with Christina.
“Get off,” she muttered under her breath, but her protest was not very clear.
“I am sorry!” I heard him whisper in his mouth and her struggles stopped.
The funniest thing is that he had never apologized to me before.
