Getting To Know One Another

Jo hit me with a pillow and I squealed and flew backwards onto the bed. Shaking her head she jumped on to the bed next to me. I looked up at her and she raised her eyebrow at me.


"So what?"

"You get to hang out with his friends, why can't we meet him? You've been going out with him for nearly three months now!" Jo scowled, hugging her pillow.

I sat up and crossed my legs, a little excitement making my heart rate accelerate a little. I sighed and looked down at my legs, my pajamma bottoms all creased, I played with one and tried to think of the best way to deal with this.

"Can I tell you a secret?"

Jo sat up straight and looked at me with large, curious eyes.

"Of course...don't tell me it's that you've slept with him already?!" She asked.

"No!" I squealed going red at the thought.

Alex and I hadn't gone that far yet, we fooled around but I wasn't ready for that yet, and Alex didn't force me. I thought about him and how lovely he was, how happy he made me and I couldn't help but smile when I pictured his smiling face. I grinned at Jo.

"I think I'm in love with him"

Jo's mouth gapped open.

"Really?" She asked as her lips twitched and she tried not to grin back at me.

I giggled and threw my hands up in the air and started to do a small dance by wriggling my shoulders. Jo rolled her eyes but laughed.

"Well, it's serious then?" Jo asked.


"And you're ok with that?"

"Yeah, obviously!" I rolled my eyes this time.

Jo nodded at me.

"Just checking, making sure you're not lying about the love thing"

I laughed and looked at her.

"I really think I do. I mean, he makes me feel so happy"

"Alright, alright, don't get all soppy on me" She stuck her togue out.

I giggled.


Jo got up and went over to her computer and put on some music before sitting on her computer chair and spinning around on it, singing along to the music. I picked at my pajamma bottoms and sighed, I wanted to tell someone. I looked up at Jo spinning around and sighed.



"I have something else to tell you"

Jo stopped spinning and turned her chair to look at me, concern on her face.

"What's wrong?"

I looked down again and then up at her; I wouldn't tell her everything.

"The reason I won't let you meet A-Andrew is because...he-he's a lot older"

"Older? A lot?" Jo stood up and walked over to me, sitting on the bed next to me.

"I don't mean like thirty or that! I mean, early twenties"

"Oh my god!" Jo sat with her mouth open.

I looked into her eyes and I could see she was worried, I put my hands up.

"He's not anything to worry about. Do you think I would stay with him if he was?"

"But all of his friends too..."

"Jo, no. He's lovely, I swear it"

"Where did you even meet him?" she asked.

I opened my mouth then hung my head, what would I say now?

"Did you meet him at a bar?"

"No" I shook my head and gasped, not realising I was holding my breath.

"Good, I was about to hit you for going to a bar without me" Jo winked.

"So you're not ready to let me know how you met him, it's fine. Just, talk to me when you're ready ok?" Jo asked.

I nodded and she smiled.

"At least now I know what to look out for and stuff, I mean, if he hurts you or that"

"No! No, he wouldn't!" I defended him.

Jo nodded and moved to lay on her bed, propping her head up on her hands as she kicked her legs behind her in the air.

"Would I like him though?" Jo asked.

I nodded, biting my tongue to not say you already do. I sighed and thought about him and wondered how his night was going; he was babysitting for his sister. I smiled and went over to Jo's computer, changing the songs. We talked and laughed, Jo giving me the updates on her drama's.


I held my night-bag by my side as I sighed and rang the doorbell to Alex's flat. I moved out of sight of the peep hole and listened as the floorboards creaked on the otherside and I pictured him peering out the hole. I smiled to myself and waited to hear his laugh and then for him to open the door, and for me to appear like magic, the usual explaination that he just believed that I'd chapped his door so much I had materialised. There was no sound, but he hadn't retreated form the door. I pouted and was ready to stand in his field of view when he spoke.

"No one's there Al"

I froze; that wasn't Alex. It took a moment for me to register the voice and my mouth dropped open a little; it was Chad. I heard him walk away and then I heard Alex shout;

"Open the door! It's Mel, she's just hiding"

"What?" Chad half sniggered.

I rolled my eyes and moved, jiggling the handle. The door had been snibbed on the inside as normal so I knew I couldn't get in, but hoped that me jingling the handle was enough proof. The footsteps came back and the familiar 'clank' of the lock being moved then the door gasping as it opened. I smiled up at Chad.

" Ello!" I greeted and walked in.

"Why were you hiding?" He asked confused, closing the door behind me.

"I like to annoy Alex; I just didn't realise he had company"

Chad didn't say anything so I assumed he nodded as I popped my head into the living room and confirmed Blair and Fraser were also inside, but so were a few other girls. I blushed and waved, Alex stood up from his spot on the couch, xbox control in hand. I then noticed the xbox tucked behind the TV cabinet. I rolled my eyes, spotting the beers on the ground and the drinks the girls held.

"Oi, oi!" Fraser, Alex's xbox opponent, tutted.

"Sorry mate!" Alex said and paused the game.

Chad squeezed by me and went into the living room, taking Alex's controller. I raised an eyebrow at Alex as he grinned at me and we made our way into his bedroom. I dumped my bag and jacket in the usual spot and put my hands on my hips.

"Surprise?" Alex grinned.

I grinned at him and rolled my eyes, crossin my arms.

"I thought it was sad movie night?" I questioned with a playful pout.

Alex winced but moved into me and rubbed my arms.

"I know you had your heart set on it, but the guys just kind of showed up and well...I couldn't kick them out could I? Especially since they brought the girls, and drink!" He deffended.

I smiled at him and wrapped my arms around his neck, pulling him closer to me.

"It's fine; I wasn't too bothered about sad movie night anyway" I rubbed my nose against his.

He grinned at me.

"You sure?"

I nodded and pulled my face away from his, he started to sway his hips, so mine were swaying too. I giggled and he smirked down at me then moved our arms, placing my left hand on his shoulder and taking my right with his and placing his arm around my waist. I laughed when he spun us round then twirled me out and brought me back in. I put my hand against his chest and he dipped me, I squealed and he let out a little yell as he lost his footing; luckily we fell on the bed. We laughed and moved further onto the bed. Alex climbed on top of me and I felt my face go red, I bit my lip and looked away from him as he leaned down towards me.

"You're so cute when you blush"

I opened my eyes but narrowed them at him and stuck my tongue out, he leaned down and bit it. I squealed and he laughed. I moved my legs so he was between them and I wrapped them around his waist, checking the space next to us then grabbed his arms. He gave a small yell as I took his support away and managed to flip us round. I straddled him and laughed as his eyes widened. His face quickly fell from shock to excitement and he laughed as I pinned his wrists down. I didn't know where this was coming from, but I couldn't help think to myself; he wants to tease? I'll show him a tease. I grinned down at him and leaned by his ear.

"Bet you wish it was just us now don't you?" I whispered and kissed his cheek gently. I leaned up and smiled at him.

I could feel him under me and I tried so hard not to blush. He cleared his throat.

"Damn right I do, where did ths come from?" He asked.

I shrugged and relased his wrists so I could sit up straight. Alex sat up so fast I fell back, he caught me though and held me to him, his head on my chest. Once I knew I was fine I laughed and pushed him off me, glaring down at him.

"Bad egg, rotten egg! A heart-attack you almost gave me!" I quoted Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

Alex laughed but we both gasped and jumped when a laugh came form the door.

"What the hell?!" Blair grinned at us.

I blushed and got off Alex who cleared his throat and stood up but pulled me in front of him to hide the bulge in his trousers. I blushed thinking of it, but I guessed Blair knew what he was doing.

"It was a quote...from Ice Age" I explained looking away.

Blair laughed and threw his hands up and shook his head.

"Whatever turns you on Sweetheart! I was just coming to ask if you wanted to crack open the Jack now that we were all here" He stressed the word 'here' in a funny, high pitched accent.

"Sure" Alex said.

Blair wriggled his eyebrows then left us, I turned and grinned, totally embarrassed. Alex wrapped his arms around me chuckling.

"How much did he see?" I mumbled into Alex's chest.

"I don't know" He mumbled into my hair as he leaned down and kissed my head.

"Come on, we better go see what everyone's up to" He half sang.

I nodded and went to leave.

"Oh, everything go smoothly with your mum and that?" He asked.

"Yeah, she still thinks I'm staying at Jo's" I nodded.

Alex nodded and we left the room, I went to the living room and Alex went to help in the kitchen with the Jack Daniels pouring. The girls looked up at me and smiled. They both sat together on the couch as Fraser sat on the arm chair and Chad sat on the ground playing a racing game. One of the girls had long blonde hair, some of it tied up and some of it left down, minimal make-up on but she wore a blue leopard print dress and high heels lay askew at the side of the couch; two pairs. The other girl had dark red hair that complimented her friendly green eyes, it sat at her shoulders with a side fringe. This girl wore a pant suit, I guessed she came here straight from work. I was a little nervous and went to sit on the floor when they squeezed over and made space for me.

"Melissa this is Lynsey and Chloe"

Lynsey being the blonde and Chloe being the red head. I smiled at them and took a spot next to them. I felt my age sitting next to them, knowing they had to be in their early to late twenties and dressed up while having a casual drink on a Saturday night, while I wore jeans and a band top and my vans. I was scared they would figure out I was really young.

"Hey" They both said.

"Hi" I replied.

"So you're Alex's girlfriend right?" Chloe asked.

"Yeah" I nodded.

Alex and Blair came in with a tray that had shots on it and seven shots. I gulped and looked at Alex with a raised eyebrow, he grinned at me; I got more nervous.

"Alrighty! Let the party starty!" Blair whooped.

The guys paused their games and turned off the console as we all took up our shots; me being more reluctant than the others.

"A toast!" Chad exclaimed.

"To what? It's Fraser's birthday soon, he'll get plenty toasts then!"

"Then a toast to the girls!" Fraser smiled at Chloe.

Chloe smirked at him, Chad looked at Lynsey as she playfully glared at Blair who winked at her. I nodded in understanding of the girls status's in the group. I looked up realising Alex was looking at me before the guys cheered to the girls and we all downed our shots. I gagged a little and looked at the now empty glass.

"What was it?"


My eyes widened, Alex laughed and cupped my face giving me a kiss. I got butterflies, but more nervous ones, I had never been around Alex when he drank and he was doing it while we were in company; I was worried.

As the night went on, everyone got progressively more drunk, the girls were falling all over the place and the guys staggered trying to act normal. I was slightly drunk but I refused to drink as much as the others. They had finished the Jack and went onto the cans of beer in the fridge with multiple shots of tequila. Blair, whom I found out was actually dating Lynsey, tried to get us to play strip poker, everyone being up for it except me. Alex was a little drunk, not as bad as the guys though was noticeably drunk, then remembered who I was exactly and he began to blush and protest against the game. He pulled me to him on the floor and we sat cuddling, looking up at everyone else. We had a good laugh and I managed to get to know the guys more and get to really know the girls. They had asked a few awkward questions that drunken Alex managed to get them to forget. I smiled when I saw him and the guys having fun, eventually we split into guys and girls. The guys in the kitchen getting more drinks but also having some man time. I sipped my Jack and coke as the girls sipped theirs from the wine glasses they had picked earlier. We giggled as we gossiped about the guys, making remarks to their earlier antics.

"Hey!" Lynsey gasped and looked at me.

"Yeah?" I asked.

She pursed her lips at me and grinned drunkenly.

"You're a lot smaller than me; do you wear lingerie?" She asked.

My mouth dropped open as I blushed, covering my mouth as I closed it in embarrassment. Chloe rolled back on the couch and threw her legs in the air laughing, Lynsey grinned at her and then giggled covering her mouth, moving so she could tuck her legs beneath her on the couch.

"You're so naive!" Lynsey grinned as Chloe continued to laugh.

"Well, do you?" She asked slurring her words a bit.

"I...I...haven't..." I confirmed for her; she nodded.

"Right! Well, I have this lovely little red and black number that doesn't fit me, I bought it on sale and by the time I got around to wearing it, I had...out grown it" She cleared her throat.

I nodded understanding; Chloe earlier had mentioned that Lynsey had gotten a boob job and that's why Blair was dating her. I didn't appreciate being dragged into business that wasn't mine, but they were all drunk and couldn't stop themselves so I just nodded along with anything they said.

"I'll give it to you, and you can Alex can have some fun" She winked.

I blushed but smiled at her.

"I heard you are quite the acrobatic" Chloe slurred and moved on the couch so she was laying awkwardly on the couch on her stomach and facing me.

"What?" I asked breathless.

What had Alex been saying?!

"Blair told us he saw your little trick with Ally!" Chloe giggled.

I rolled my eyes and shook my head.

"Men!" I groaned.

We all laughed just as Fraser bounced into the room topless and in boxer shorts and socks.

"Did someone call?!" He bellowed.

We all laughed and I covered my face giggling. I heard an 'oomph' and looked up to see Lynsey had thrown a cushion from the couch at him to cover him.

"Oi, oi!"

"That's the only time you'll be getting naked tonight!" Chloe shouted as she sat up on the couch.

Fraser pouted as Alex, Chad and Blair came in laughing, carrying drinks and the tray with shots on it; the half empty bottle of tequila sitting in the middle of the tray. I felt my stomach churn a little, I didn't mind drinking Jack, but no more tequila!

"Alright! We're going to play....a drinking game!" Chad announced.

The girls squealed as the tray was placed on the table as we all gathered around.

"What game shall we play?" Mused Alex, stroking his imaginary beard.

In the end we played Ring of Fire, I felt ill after a while and continued but couldn't drink anymore. Everyone ended up smashed. Eventually we stopped playing and that's when music had been put on though I made sure not too loudly to annoy the neighbours. I had begun to sway a lot and by four o'clock in the morning I was shattered! Alex and I sat on the couch, Alex in the corner while I cuddled into him and began to fall asleep. I think I did at one point as when I opened my eyes, I found Blair on his back and singing softly to himself, Lynsey passed out on the arm chair and Chad, Fraser and the newly discovered missing Alex next to them with Chloe by the window. Fraser left the room to go to the bathroom as I got up from the couch and yawned. The three of them turned to look at me and Alex smiled softly.

"You alright?" He slurred.

I nodded and yawned.

"Can I...g-go to bed?" I asked as I rubbed my eyes and yawned again, my stomach turned a little but not much.

Alex furrowed his brows at me.

"You don't have to ask love!" He said.

I smiled at him and said good night to everyone, Blair ignored everyone as he sang away to himself, earning more giggles form everyone. I passed Fraser and bid him a good night as well and went into Alex's room, turning on the light to see my path, then turning it off an jumping onto the very comfortable, much appreciated bed. I slowly crawled under the covers, shivering as they were freezing from the lack of human contact. I pulled the covers around me and sighed, happy to be in a decent bed.

I wasn't sure how long after but I was joined by Alex who spoke to himself quietly as he tried to manouver his way into the dark room and into the other side of the bed without waking me. I peeked at him and grinned, trying not to give away the fact he had already woke me. He lifted the covers and I groaned and rolled over.

"Shh..." I heard him coo. I bit my lip.

He groaned and sighed as he lay on his back and let the covers fall creating a small draft. I shivered involuntarily which he seemed to feel.

"Mmm, hug, hug, hug" He chanted to himself as he cuddled right up to me and snuggled into me, his body so warm I couldn't help but move and turn in his arms.

"Sh, sleep" He whispered afraid he had woken me.

"I watched you make your way pitifully around the room dear" I giggled at him.

He had jumped at my voice and groaned a little.

"I'm sorry" He sighed and put his head against mine.

I almost choked on his breath as the smell of tequila hit me. I moved and kissed his head.

"It's ok, everyone asleep?"

"Nah, they went home, well....Blair's passed out on the floor; I put a blanket on him" I nodded and sighed, cuddling into him and smiled as I savoured the moment.

There was a brief silence where I thought I could get back to sleep, but with Alex next to me, I felt wide awake. I opened my eyes and looked up at him and knew from his breathing that he too wasn't asleep. I felt my heart race and heard the blood in my ears as I plucked up the courage to moved my hand from his waist and touch his face. Alex's eyes instantly opened and we stared at each other, I couldn't see the lovely colour of his eyes but I could picture it as he then moved his hand from my waist and pushed my hair behind my ear. I knew I wouldn't be getting to sleep for a while, so I gave into my hearts desires and I stretched my neck up to kiss him; he met me half way.

The kisses were tender and long, making my body tingle, he pulled away for breath so I moved to put my head on his as we gasped. I felt his fingers tickle my hips and I moved closer to him, I wrapped my leg around his waist as he slid his leg between mine. He pulled me to him and we kissed more passionatly, open mouthed. My heart was racing, my mind was a whirl, I could feel my lust growing, I could feel his as he began to grind against me. I moaned as he bit my lip and I pulled away. We hadn't fully fooled around before, but I felt this may be the time. I was a little worried that it was because of the alcohol, but the more I thought about it, the more I realised I was pretty much sober. Alex stroked my hair.

"We don't have to fool around, you know that right?" He asked.

"I know...but...I want to" I told him, feeling my face burn.

I put my hand on his chest and smirked to myself as I felt his heart beat. I moved and I kissed him, when I pulled away to see his expression, he gently pulled me back to him and kissed me. It sent me sky-rocketting. Alex's hand ended up on my hip as he slipped his other arm under me then turned us quickly. I felt my stomach go funny and my heart jumped as I found myself now on top of him. The kisses becoming more and more passionate and quick as I felt his excitement grow.

"Are you sure?" He gasped as we paused. I sat up and removed my top, exposing my stomach and bra. I felt Alex underneath me and I blushed.

I tossed my top aside, I opened my mouth to speak but felt too embarrassed, I went to lean over him again to begin kissing when he made his way up to me and removed his top also. I got a little excited and went back onto my knees but still on top of him. He pressed his stomach against me as he sat right up and pulled me into kiss him. I felt my breasts against his chest and the heat from his torso coursed through me, making me realise what I was doing...and then who I was doing it with; the excitement was almost unbearable....almost.
