TO REBECCA 🤫 🤫 ❓
BY RUTHIE LEE 🌸 🌸
Janet sighed countlessly as she walked through the hallway of Betty’s family house, a cup of red wine in her hand,
She took one last sip from her wine and tossed the cup away,
She was having headaches and needed to rest.
‘This must be a room!’ she thought as she stood in front of a closed door.
‘Hope it has a bed’ she hoped as she turned the door knob and pushed the door open.
She suddenly stopped, when she saw Thelma and Zane making out in the room.
Thelma and Zane quickly stopped and turned to see Janet looking surprised and standing at the door.!
“Uh… Hey!” Zane said breathlessly.
“Seriously, you guys have been k!ssing for hours, aren’t you tired!” Janet rolled her eyes acting like she was offended, but never forget she’s a great actress.
“It’s not your lips so…
Thelma smirked at her.
“Whatever, I want to rest a bit, can you guys go out?” Janet asked.
“Sorry we came here first, and it’s first come first serve!” Thelma shrugged, while Janet rolled her eyes and walked out of the room, slamming the door really hard…
Janet rested her back on the door breathing heavily, she was holding back something, some thing she couldn’t believe she was holding,
‘It’s just Zane! It’s not like someone important!’ she reminded her self.
‘But it is Zane!’ she reminded herself again. And her breath hitched.
“for God’s sake Janet, get a hold of yourself!” Janet Lashed to herself and quickly walk away.
Thelma moved back from Zane breaking their k!ss.
“What’s wrong!” Zane asked.
“Nothing!” Thelma said biting her bottom lip.
“Something is definitely wrong! You do that when you have a lot to say!” Zane said referring to her bit lips.
“Oh.” she giggled. “Everyone does this!”.
“Not me… Now spill,” Zane said sitting on the bed and pulling her to sit down too.
“Uhm okay…” Thelma moved her head back as she sat on the bed and faced Zane.
“Okay…?” Zane leaned forward.
“What is this… Now between us.” Thelma said pointing back and forth between them around the ‘this’.
“I don’t understand your ‘this…’..” Zane said copying her gesture and she laughed.. “It’s not time for joke Zane! I’m serious!”.
“I wasn’t joking but you were the one who laughed!” Zane shrugged…
“Okay so… I want to ask! Where are we going?” Thelma asks.
“Yeah… I mean after coming clean about liking you, I k!ssed you, you k!ssed back… So What does that mean?”
“Uhm sincerely… I don’t know” Zane said rubbing his neck.
“what?” Thelma stood up.
“What do you mean you don’t know.”
“I… I..” Zane didn’t know what to say. So he sighed and gave up.
“Okay so you were just craving for a k!ss since Janet didn’t give you one and when I did, you reciprocated cause it was what you were craving for!” Thelma said folding her hands.
“That’s not true!” Zane protested.
“Then why did you k!ss me back if you don’t like me!” Thelma asked.
“Well… I do like you… But…
“But… But what?” Thelma glared at him.
“I don’t know!” He said.
“You don’t know?” Thelma asked.
He looked at Thelma. “I don’t know!”
“You know, well, you shouldn’t have k!ssed me back!” Thelma stated picking her fingers.
“Thelm…why are you saying all these…” Zane asked.
“Cause..! I want us to be a ‘thing’ get it?” Thelma said walking towards the door. “And I’ll give you time to think about it.” she said lastly before walking out of the room…
Zane looked around and sighed before sitting down on the bed again.
“Damn it!” he muttered lowly and ruffled his hair.
Rebecca was taken aback when k!ssed by Mark, she hadn’t expect and it happened so quickly, she did not reciprocate which made mark stop and move back to look at her surprised face.
“I.. I’m sorry!” Mark apologized.
Rebecca gulped and her gaze went to the floor.
She began “That was…
“weird?” Mark completed but she slowly shook her head.
“Unexpected!” she said.
“Sorry!” Mark apologized…
She wanted to tell him it was okay, but she couldn’t say that, not when she suddenly got curious.
Does Mark like her?
Of course, he does, but she doubted it and turned to him.
“Do you… Do You want to go inside It’s a bit cold!” she said rubbing her shoulder.
“Yeah… Yeah… you can have my jacket if you want though,” Mark said trying to remove his jacket but Rebecca stopped him
“It’s okay we’re going inside already!”.
“Oh okay” Mark said leaving his jacket.
“Yeah..” Rebecca said and they both head inside.
“See it’s warm here!” Rebecca smiled at Mark.
“Yeah!” he glanced at her and looked away.
Her charming dimples shooting an arrow at him.
Well he had always thought her dimples were charming.
Mark started “Do you want to have–
“Isn’t that Thelma?” Thelma interrupted.
“Yeah… I think so” Mark said.
“I think something is wrong with her, she looks sad. And I thought she was kissing Zane a while ago, where’d he go?” Rebecca asked.
Mark shrugged at her.
“Well I’ll be back!” Rebecca said at Mark walking towards Thelma.
Mark sighed as he watched her go, He didn’t want to leave her side, She was being Rebecca for just tonight and it will be great to talk to her all night.
“Hey!” Rebecca said to Thelma .
“Oh… Becca. Hey!” Thelma said watching her come close.
Rebecca smiled even more seeing how Thelma looked pretty up close.
“Wow your dress is pretty!” Thelma complimented.
“Thanks” Rebecca smiled.
Shrugging at the thought of Delilah’s fashion sense.
“You know we haven’t really talked since we arrived at the party!” Thelma said.
“Oh really?” Rebecca asked.
“Yeah” Thelma said.
“Well you look gorgeous!” Rebecca smiled.
Rebecca sat beside Thelma on the small foamy bench, that was placed under the stairs.
“Huh.? You want to sit with me? Has Mark gone home?” Thelma teased.
“What do you mean by that?” Rebecca laughed.
“I mean you and Mark are always together, anyone barely talks to any of you!” Thelma said.
“Yeah, you’re always clinging next to him at school like glue, and some people just thinks you’re both dating” Thelma said and Rebecca laughed nervously.
She suddenly wished she could fight Delilah face to face and pull out all her hair for giving her a reputation like that.
Not that dating Mark is a bad thing, just that she’s living her life and dating who she wants with her body.
“So why are you alone?” Rebecca asked changing the subject wisely.
“What do you mean?” Thelma asked.
“Everyone saw you okay! You and Zane k!ssing at that corner!” Rebecca said pointing to the place…
“oh!” Thelma bit her lip.
“And I was wondering where your suitor had gone to?” Rebecca smiled.
“Oh Zane… I don’t know what’s wrong with him… Or me!” Thelma sighed.
“Why, what happened!” Rebecca suddenly got curious.
“Actually… everyone knows Zane’s cuckoo for Janet, and I’ve had feelings for him, feelings I doubted, feelings I pushed aside, not wanting them to get to me cause i thought it would be weird falling for Zane!” Thelma sighed.
“What? Zane’s cute!” Rebecca smiled.
Thelma glanced at her. “I know”.
“It’s just that, we grew up together and see… Well… fought about a lot of things, liked a lot of things together, seen weird things about our… Well I shouldn’t talk about that” Thelma laughed..
“okay!” Rebecca shrugged. “Tell me whatever you like I won’t judge but just listen!” Rebecca assured, easing the tense that was building in Thelma’s body.
Thelma licked her lips and smiled, and she continued “Okay, so when Zane and I talk about our past, we don’t talk about it in front of others, cause thinking about then, now, is kind of embarrassing, cause we we’re pretty bad kids and we’ve… well just push that aside.. I’m just trying to say, I’ve always thought falling for Zane is like falling for your own brother but then again, I think it’s different, but I couldn’t stop those feelings, the more Zane grew, the more handsome he became and Gosh I felt so weird keeping to myself that I am falling for Zane, Zane Cosmo, my childhood, friend, who used to be once my Lackey, I was devasted but I did a pretty good job hiding it, and then he started to act really crazy around Janet and then one day I got pissed and k!ssed him! I apologized for it and declined that I didn’t have feelings for him when he asked me and now at this party, I k!ssed him and he asked me if I have feelings for him I came clean and k!ssed him again, he k!ssed me back, and he didn’t seem to offended or surprised that, I, Thelma, said I like him. I mean I’m happy about it but I just want to know why he k!ssed me back cause, You can kiss someone back you don’t like right?” Thelma looked at Rebecca for answers.
“Uhm… Yeah…Yeah I think so, cause you can’t k!ss someone you don’t like!” Rebecca said remembering Mark’s k!ss from earlier.
“Really…? So That means Zane likes me but doesn’t want to admit it?” Thelma asks.
“Yep…” Rebecca nodded. “Or maybe he’s not so sure of his feelings, give him time, and trust me he’ll come clean about whether or not he likes you!” Rebecca advised.
“Thanks Becca! You’re right… and I’ll give him time, thanks for listening!” Thelma breathed a sigh of relief.
“Glad I could help” Rebecca smiled.
“What are you doing drinking alone and didn’t invite your best buddy!” Zane said from no where taking the fruit punch from Mark from Mark’s hand.
Mark sighed as he watched Zane drink the juice and spits it back.
“What the hell! Why are you having this instead, vodka or something more mature!” Zane whined.
“Thanks but I’ll be driving tonight, and thanks for ruining my drink!” Mark rolled his eyes angrily.
“Yeah, it was worth ruining!” Zane Said sitting down on a sofa opposite Mark.
“What are you even doing here anyways, where’s your girlfriend!” Mark rolled his eyes..
“Where is Becca?” Zane fired back.
“Becca isn’t my girlfriend you moron”
“And Thelma isn’t my girlfriend!” Zane snarled.
Mark smirked, “I didn’t mention if it was Thelma, so how come you’re mentioning Thelma.”
“Well I know you would be talking about her!” Zane said
“I could be talking about Janet or Thelma, but still yet you chose to mention Thelma, now tell me, how is she not your girlfriend?” Mark asked still keeping his creepy and scary smirk.
“She’s not! You pathetic loser!” Zane barked.
“I saw you two swallowing each other moments ago, what was that for?” Mark asked.
“I didn’t know you talk nasty, why do you pretend to be this gentle guy who knows nothing, but suddenly becomes nosy around me!” Zane huffed.
“Cause I’m just helping build a better you, you’re dumb to understand some things!” Mark said making Zane sigh.
“You’re seriously crazy!”
“Thanks” Mark said.
“So…” Zane started. “you were kind of right!” .
“Right about what?” Mark asked knowing what he was about to say.
“Thelma do have feelings for me, she told me tonight!” Zane said staring at the floor…
“And then what happened… You k!ssed her like a maniac and took her upstairs to do what? Have se–
The plastic cup Zane threw at Mark’s face prevented him from completing his words and Mark laughed.
“You psychopath” Zane barked.
“Was I wrong? Weren’t you two planning to have s*x?” Mark eyes looked dark and sinful as he looked at Zane.
“Okay… You’re not sounding like Mark at all!” Zane said.
“How do you want me to sound? Like you?” Mark smiled.
“Okay, if you’re going to talk nasty I’m outta here!” Zane said standing up, but Mark was fast, as he walked up to Zane and pulled him by the collar of his jacket and push him back on the sofa.
“Like you don’t talk nasty! Everyone talks nasty especially guys, now sit and let’s talk!” Mark barked.
“Talk about what?” Zane asked.
“You know!” Mark said sitting down.
“Thelma?” Zane asked.
“You are catching up… that’s good” Mark said and Zane rolled his eyes.
“what’s there to talk about, she said she likes me, we kissed, game over.” Zane said.
“Really? And you think it’s game over? Dude that’s just the starting point of the freaking game you’re mentioning!” Mark huffed.
“What do you mean?”.
“You don’t understand girls do you!” Mark rolled his eyes.
“Like you understand them? Girls are different, and no body understands girls!” Zane said.
“Well… I agree girls are different but for a girl like Thelma, you can’t seem to understand her.” Mark said.
“And you do? I’m the only guy who understands Thelma! You’ve known her for only a year or two and you’re babbling rubbish about understand her, I’m the only guy who understand Thelma, I’ve known her all my life.” Zane boasted
“Shut up, you understand other parts of her, but you don’t understand the… Let’s say her love life,” Mark said.
“And so what?” Zane scoffed.
Mark shook his head. “You’re seriously dumb! Okay when girls like Thelma confesses to you, they pretend they don’t want you to acknowledge it but just want to let you know, but deep inside they really want you to accept that confession and be in a relationship with her.” Mark explained.
“Well…” Zane paused. “She did say she wanted us to be a thing!”.
“Really!?” Mark smiled.
Zane looked up at him. “I don’t get why you want me and Thelma together so badly!”
“Cause Janet’s too stupid… And I think Thelma’s pretty hot and she’s smart too!” Mark smirked.
“Then go date her then!” Zane stood up.
“Should I?” Mark asked strangely.
“what?” Zane turned to him.
“Yeah,” Mark stood up “I’m asking if it’s okay for me to date Thelma, if you’re okay with it!”.
“Are you crazy?” Zane scoffed.
“I’m not I’m being serious here” Mark said his eyes piercing into Zane’s eyes.
“A simple yes or no would do the trick, can I date her?” Mark asked with the most serious expression on earth.
Zane was speechless seeing the seriousness from his friend, He doesn’t understand the Mark he’s talking to.
“No” Zane said sharply.
“And why is that?” Mark asked.
“You must be kidding me”
“I’m not… Why shouldn’t I?” Mark asked again.
“Because you have Rebecca, now stop with the Thelma stuff”.
“But who says I can’t date two girls at once!” Mark smirked.
“Seriously you’re a psychopath”. Zane said.
“I know why you can’t say yes, cause you like Thelma but you’re not sure and you’re afraid to keep her but still afraid to let her go,” Mark explained.
“Just….. get lost” Zane said before walking away…
As the day grew darker, the party went on and on till it was finally coming to an end, the night was getting old and people started to leave.
The house was now filled with people less than fifteen and as Rebecca talked to Mark and shayne, she felt a hand on her shoulder.
“Vera!” Rebecca called as she turned.
“Yeah, I think it’s about time we start to leave, Betty’s asleep too she drank again and ended up falling asleep” Vera said looking tired…
“Oh okay, I’ll go look for my bag.!” Rebecca said walking away.
“Betty’s asleep?” Mark asked Vera.
“Yeah, I better go tell that deejay to wrap things up and end it for tonight” Vera said and walked away.
“So… Looks like we’ll be leaving soon! Well it was a fun party, and it’s weird I haven’t seen Felicia since we both dared ourselves to finish a bottle of beer,” shayne scoffed.
Mark remembered the Jessica event and turned to him.
“She’s sleeping… In Betty’s room!” Mark said.
“Really!.. Well I better go get her!” shayne said before walking away, the slow song that was playing stopped playing and the people around groaned.
Vera came out of the kitchen with a drink and turn to Mark.
“I’m over here!” Rebecca said walking towards her.
“Okay! Let’s head home, I’m feeling a little tired and sleepy!” Vera said.
“Felicia! Hey Felicia!” Mark said lightly tapping Felicia on the arm.
Felicia groaned in her sleep till she slowly open her eyes.
“Sh..shayne.” She called.
“Yeah, I see you’ve had a good night sleep, come on, we have to go home so you can sleep well” shayne said and she sighed heavily and slowly came down from the bed.
She tried to stand but almost fell down, shayne caught her and smiled.
“Don’t worry, I’ll walk you downstairs!” he said as he held Felicia and led her to the door, they both walked out and as he closed the door. It sounded really loud and woke Betty up. Who found herself comfortable sleeping on the floor and had let Felicia take the bed.
Betty woke up and moved the blanket covering her body away, a blanket Vera has taken from her closet and put over her so she won’t get cold sleeping on the concrete floor. But Betty didn’t know that.
Betty stood up and slowly walked out of the door and down the stairs, she saw that everyone had start to leave and she immediately yelled Vera’s name when she saw Vera and Rebecca wanting to go out the door.
Vera and Rebecca turned while the others walked out the door.
Betty slowly walked up to them…
“You’re leaving?” Betty asked.
“Yeah party’s over!” Vera chucked.
“What? do you want a sleepover now?” Rebecca scoffed.
“That would be nice!” Betty said scratching her head letting her black hair fall to her face.
“Becca was being sarcastic and we have a home too you know, and thanks for party and everything it was fun!” Vera said.
“Glad it was, I enjoyed it too” Betty smiled with tired eyes.
Vera looked around. “Sure you can clean this place by yourself it looks pretty messy!” Vera said.
“want to come by and help me clean tomorrow?” Betty asked.
“one thing I hate most is doing chores and seriously no!” Vera shook her head.
“Okay… we’ll get going now!” Rebecca said linking her hand with her sister’s.
“Okay and Vera you and Mark should come over tomorrow not for cleaning but for what I saw, and Rebecca I’m glad I can bring you back tonight and don’t give up you’ll have your body back!” Betty said and Rebecca nodded with a smile.
“Cause if you give up then where’s all our effort going, don’t give and we won’t to” Betty added making vera smile.
“Okay then goodnight!” Vera said once more before they both walked out of Betty’s house.
“Finally! What took you girls so long?” Mark asked as he revved up the engine as Vera and Rebecca walked into his rented car and then he starts to drive.
