C6 Chapter 6
Andrews facial expression was changed to an extremely happy one once he saw the person that spoke from behind. "Adrian!" Andy hollered.
"I'm still mad at you idiot!" The man named Adrian shouted. He wore black denim jeans, a vest, and a jacket to top it off. Despite the casual look, he looked ready to walk a runway. Andy ran towards the stranger, they did their bro hug and laughed.
"I miss you, man!" Andy said. "You wouldn't have left if you missed me." Adriana retorted sarcastically. They chuckled at his remark and Andy sarcastically apologized. Adrian's eyes met mine and he smirked.
"Who's the hottie hottie behind you?" He asked with a questioning brow. Andy signaled for me to come closer and grabbed my hand once I did.
"Meet the love of my life, Christiana! Christiana, meet Adrian, my childhood best friend who I haven't been in contact with for almost four years now." He introduced us both.
"Quite a beauty," he started making me blush at his compliment.
"So that means, you and Vanessa...?" He trailed off and looked behind us. "Talk about the devil and she appears." Adrian spoke making I and Andrew confused as she decided to look towards his eye direction.
In front of me stood a brunette beauty. She was dressed in a red off-shoulder gown and black stiletto heels. I felt as if I had seen her before but I just couldn't remember when and where.
"Nessa?" Andy said and she walked towards us and I finally remembered where I've seen her before. I've seen her posts on Instagram. Vanessa's a popular model and an actress. Wow! Andy knows so many famous people, I wonder if-
"Drew!" She smiled and kissed my boyfriend... right in front of me on the lips. Well, it was more of a peck but that was not the point! My heart pounded against my chest in rage. Who does she think she was? I was so pissed that everything had to happen in front of me.
Andy - shocked himself- frantically looked at me and then her. Adrian looked amused and not the slightest bit surprised. Eventually, Andrew brushed it off and tried to start a normal conversation.
"Uhmm... Christiana meet Nessa, my childhood friend." He said.
Your childhood friend that kissed you on the lips! And he has a nickname for her, Nessa!? He doesn't have a nickname for me, he's never called my Christy like our other friends do!
"That's it?" She raised her eyebrows. Putting her hand on her hip and smiling at Andy, she continued, "I'm also his ex-girlfriend and his first love."
"And... uh... Nessa meet, Christiana." So now I'm no longer his girlfriend and she was his first love. "My girlfriend." he quickly added and wrapped his hands around my waist. I wanted to shove them off but decided against it, no need to draw attention.
"I see." She grinned. "You're really pretty!" She cooed absentmindedly and turned towards Andy. "Why don't we use tonight to catch up?" She begged. Her flirty smile made me want to castrate her, right here and now.
As Andy started to back away from his ex a bit, his mom walked in, oblivious to the situation. "Is that you Nessa?" She asked sweetly.
"Emerald!" Vanessa beamed in delight and raced to hug her. Emerald, Andy's mom's, seems super close to Andy's ex. Ha! No wonder she doesn't like me! Why should she when her son's first relationship was with a literal superstar!
Emerald and Vanessa kept chatting and laughing, making me painfully realize how comfortable they were. Soon, Andy joined the conversation. They chatted and giggled at their inside jokes, making me feel left out.
She kissed my boyfriend right in front of me. She proudly proclaimed she was his first love and girlfriend. And now she's luring my Andrew away from me?!
"Looks like someone's a bit uncomfortable." Adrian hummed sarcastically. I had totally forgotten about him as I was so lost in my own word of annoyance.
"What a thoughtful observation!" I bit back. He chuckled at my snarkiness rubbing my back in a comforting way.
"Don't worry, She's like that with everyone, only nice to few." He said. I gave a small smile and thanked him, he nodded and smiled back.
While Andrew ignored my existence, Adrian kept me company. I got to know the guy and Andy has been friends since diapers. I found out that Andy's mom wasn't fond of him because he made Andy do a lot of dangerous stuff, and got on Emerald's nerves. Damn it! This guy is so much fun!
While our convo continued, a hand snaked around my waist and I caught a whiff of a familiar cologne. Happy memories filled my thoughts. Me and Andy holding hands and giggling quietly, soft kisses, warm hugs. I would have sunk deeper into his arms if it wasn't for the sudden feeling of betrayal that tugged at my heart. I removed his hands and turned to meet his eyes, I could see the surprise in his face.
"My Grandparents won't be able to come, so we'll meet them tomorrow." He whispered. He only whispered when he knew I was angry.
I nodded my head and turned back to Adrian. But, Andy refused to leave my side. So annoying! He stood there and listened to our conversation, hands still wrapped around my waist. Adrian could sense the tension and laughed at the pitiful scene in front of him. Andrew would try to kiss me on my neck and I would shrug it off. Suddenly his mom came to us.
"Have you had anything to drink?" She asked, surprising me. "No." I shook my head, maybe she's finally warming up to me. Raising her eyebrows, she nodded and continued, "I get it. You haven't drank anything expensive in your life before, have you?"
I should have seen that coming. Couldn't she be a little more mature? Andy warned his mother but she ignored him.
"Anyway, enjoy the night. And Andy, don't forget to treat Nessa well, she is family," she said, emphasizing the word family. As soon as she walked away, I told Andy I wanted to leave. He agreed and directed me away. When we got into the room, I rushed into the bathroom he called and ran after me, grabbing my arm.
"I'm sorry." He apologized. "Don't touch me!" I yelled. He wrapped his hands around me in a tight embrace and started peppering kisses all over my neck, face, and hair.
"I'm sorry." He muttered.
"Your mom hates me, doesn't she?" I asked, already knowing the answer.
"It's just..." He couldn't finish his sentence.
"Don't worry, I get it." I pushed him away.
"I'm sorry." He said.
"For what? That you didn't tell me your EX-GIRLFRIEND and you are still close? Or maybe it's the fact that she KISSED you on the LIPS!"
