I slipped out of the bathroom and started walking down the hall when I heard voices from Josh’s room.
I quietly stepped over to the door. I opened it a crack.
I saw Josh and a girl talking.
Wait, a girl! I listened in on the conversation.
“I swear sweet heart she’s just some girl. You should know that best of all” I heard Josh say.
“Well if Aubrey touches you she will be a shredded girl.” I heard the girl say.
Wait. I know that voice. I looked closer. Janice.
“But remember you said that your daddy wouldn’t hurt her if I stayed with you my dear.” Josh purred.
“That’s only if you don’t lay a hand on her and there’s nothing going on between you.” Janice replied.
Josh swept her into his arms and they kissed. Gross! I can’t take this. I backed up and knocked on the door.
“Come in.” I heard Josh say.
I stood in the door frame.
“Well this girl wants to say good night.” I said looking at Josh.
I turned to Janice.
“You don’t have to worry about a thing. I hate him and won’t even lay a finger on him. Plus there will never be a thing between us in my life or if there is life after that. So bye.” I said and walked out of the room like I owned the place.
I walked into my room to see Andrew standing in the exact same spot that I left him.
“Did you even breathe while I was gone?” I asked kidding.
“Nope.” Andrew said grinning.
“Well night. I’m tired and it’s been a really long day. Oh and by the way if Josh steps near my room tell me so I can punch his lights out.” I said slipping into bed.
Andrew nodded and stayed standing there.
“Why are you still here?” I asked.
“I have to guard you day and night. You can’t leave my sight.” Andrew said.
I laughed. “You need some sleep. Just lay right here. You’ll wake up if you here a noise.” I said patting the spot in bed beside me.
He nodded and walked over.
I flipped on my side and dozed off just as he lay down.
