6. Chapter Six

    

Ethan's house is a smaller version of mine, without an upstairs. When you walk in, you come into a small foyer. To the left is the kitchen, dining room, and living room. To the right are the two bedrooms and one bathroom. 

Ethan still has his fingers laced with mine. He pulls me towards his bedroom. He opens the door, and I am greeted with dark blue paint, a small bed in the corner, a TV, and a Xbox. 

"It's not much," he says, gesturing towards his room. He finally lets go of my hand and I sigh. His hands were so warm.

"It's...perfect. So, what games do you have?" I ask him. I sit down on his bed and place my hands in my lap. Ethan walks across the room and pulls out three games.

"Pick from those. Those are the ones I'm best at," he tells me. I look at him and smile. I look through the games and pick one, handing him the other two. I slide the game into the Xbox, and grab two controllers.

"Ready?" Ethan asks me.

"Ready to win," I smirk. 

*

Two hours later, we both collapse onto his bed. We turn towards each other. I smile.

"I cannot believe what just happened," Ethan says of the outcome of the game. 

"Me neither. I guess we both win, and lose," I tell him. I grab his hand and intertwine our fingers. 

"So, you sleepover here on Friday. And I will apply for the camp when you come over, deal?" he asks, pulling us up so we are sitting. 

"Deal," I whisper. He brings his hand and brushes it along my cheek. Pushing the hair out of my eyes, he smiles.

"Beautiful," he whispers. I wrap my hands around his neck. I can fill the chill of his breath on my lips. Was this a moment we were having?

He begins to lean in. I do the same. He brushes his lips against mine. *BAM! BAM! BAM!*

We both hear the three loud knocks at the same time. I quickly snap my head in the direction of the door. "Ugh," I groan

"I'll, er, get that," Ethan says, blushing. He gets up, leaving me on the bed. 

"Jacob! What are you doing here?" Ethan looks at me roughly, before averting his attention towards my brother. 

His gaze bit into mine. "Melanie, go home," Jacob says. 

"Why?" I snap. "Your not my father and you never will be."

"Mel, please? Jacob wants to talk," Ethan's gentle voice softens my ears.

"Okay. Jacob? How will I get home?" I ask.

"Walk," Jacob says sharply. I look at Ethan with pleading eyes. He looks away, awkwardly. 

I let out a load groan before leaving the room and walking towards the door. Normally, I would eavesdrop. Not today. I walked out the door and onto the sidewalk.

I can't believe Ethan kissed me.

 

 

 

 

 

Days past. Jacob didn't say a word to me when he got home that day. I haven't heard a word from Ethan, either. I began to question what Jacob said to Ethan. We had _kissed._ Ethan couldn't brush that off. 

And, what about Alex? He said he liked her, yet he kissed me. I am so confused. 

My phone started ringing a high pitch ring. I hate my ringtone, yet I never find time to change it.

"Hello?" I said into the speaker. 

"Mel?" the person on the other line asked. I smiled because I knew the voice.

"Ethan? I was starting to think you were avoiding me," I bit my lip. 

"I would never do that. I am still expecting you tonight, you know?" he said. My lips curled into a smile.

"I know. I'll be over in a few minutes, kay?" I tell him.

"Alright, see you, Mel."

"Bye," I shut my phone and hopped up off my bed. _I am going to Ethan Walker's house,_ I thought. I quickly thought of something and pulled my phone back out and texted Poppy. 

*Me: Pop! Can I hav a favor?*

*Poppy: Yea, sure. Wat is it?*

*Me: Cover 4 me 2nite? Going 2 Ethan's house 4 sleepover (:*

*Poppy: Sure, doll (: Tell me all the deets l8r?*

*Me: You bet!*

I closed my phone and scrambled for clothes.  I grabbed my over sized hot pink bag. Tearing through my drawers, I pick out some jeans, a tank top, a purple button up plaid shirt, underwear, a bra, and some sleep shorts.  I make sure to grab the camp forms.

I pull my bag over my shoulder, and walk downstairs.

"Going to Poppy's! Be home tomorrow!" I yell as I walk out the door. 

One of the disadvantages of not having you license at sixteen, is having to walk everywhere. 

*

*KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK* I knock three times on the front door of Ethan's house. I quickly fix my hair, and plaster a smile on my face.

The door opens and I'm greeted my  tall brunette lady, "May I help you?" she asks. 

I smile politely, "I'm here for Ethan! My name is Melanie."

"I'm Anne, nice to meet you!. I've been hearing so many things about you," I reach out and shake her hand. I blush. "You can go on to Ethan's room. You know where it is."

I wave and head towards Ethan's room. 

"Ethan?" I say as I open the door and walk in. He is on his bed, staring at the ceiling. 

"Melanie," he whispers. He walks over to me and pulls me into a warm hug. "Can I ask you something?" 

"Yes," I whisper.

"Did you like the kiss?" he asks about the kiss the other day. 

"Yes," I whisper, again. 

"Then you won't mind me doing this," he says before he places his warm lips on mine.

"Then you won't mind me doing this," he says before he places his warm lips on mine. 

 

Ethan had quickly parted our lips and smiled. I bit my lip. _We had kissed again?_

"So," I said, breaking the awkward silence, "What do you have planned?" 

"Oh, I figured we could play some video games, watch some movies, order pizza. You know, sleepover stuff," he told me, locking eyes with me.

"Sounds great. What do you want to do first?" I asked him, eyeing his room. 

"How about we play some video games? I'll get one," he said. He went over to a bookshelf and picked up the same game we played a few nights ago. I smiled at the memory. 

"I don't see the point of even playing because I'm going to win," I taunted. He smirked in my direction, and my lips curled upwards. 

"Really? Your on, Mel," he says before popping the game into the Xbox. 

*

His kisses were soft, and warm.  We had barely made it through one round of the game when he placed his lips on mine. *KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK*

Just like the other night, there were three knocks at the door. "I swear, if that's Jacob.." I muttered under my breath.

Ethan rolled his eyes, and brought his hands down from my cheek. He got up and pulled the door open. 

"Alex? What are you doing here?" Ethan questioned. I peaked around the door and saw Alex standing there. Alex was popular. Ethan told me he liked her. Great.

"I heard you were having a sleepover with...her," she looked at me with a disgusted expression. "And, I decided to crash. I call the bed with Ethan!" she said before hopping on the bed. I rolled my eyes. Ethan clearly looked uncomfortable. 

How did Alex know? The only people I told were Poppy and Jacob.

"I call the floor," I mumble. I reach into my bag and grab my sleep shorts. I realize I for got a shirt. "Ethan? I forgot my sleep shirt, could I borrow one of yours?" I ask. I look at Alex and roll my eyes. 

"Sure, Mel. Here," he says, tossing my a white tee shirt. I run into the only bathroom across the hall. I quickly push my jeans down my legs and tear my shirt off. I pull my sleep shorts on and tug on Ethan's shirt. I let down my hair and run my fingers through it. 

I walk back into Ethan's room, where I find Alex going through my bag. "Hey! What are you doing!" I yell at her. She snaps her head in my direction and widens her eyes. 

"Ethan told me to!" she yelled as she pointed at him.

"Ethan?" I question, looking at him for an explanation.

He looks at me with sorrowful eyes, "It's true, Mel. I told her to."

She smirks and I frown, "Why?" 

"He told me to get your bra so we could play a prank on you," Alex snickered, her blonde hair swung freely behind her. She quickly wiped away her mascara smudges along her eyes.

"Okay.." I trailed off. "What do you guys want to do?" I asked.

"Sleep!" Ethan called out. He gave me a sly smile before hopping into bed. 

"Okay!" Alex replied, sliding in next to Ethan. She snuggles up in his shoulder. What about me?

I grab a blanket from under his bed and bury myself in it, trying to not cry.
