GIRLS OF THETA HOUSE-
Alaska de Sauveterre
friday 7th of september, 2012;
"How could you shoot me? We're on the same team!" Liam exclaimed, throwing down the controller, though Scott and I knew he'd pick it up once more and continue playing. "It's not funny" he said defensively, sounding like a pathetic four year child throwing a tantrum.
Scott continued to burst out in laughter, managing to kill Liam's character with a grenade whilst in the process of Liam throwing a tantrum.
"Ally, tell him to stop being unfair" Liam whined, sitting back down on the couch and picking up the controller. A pout plastered on his face as he continued as if nothing had happened.
I rolled my eyes and continued reading the novel I had grasped in my hands. I have developed a skill where I can ignore all sounds and it was useful almost every time the boys decided to accompany me. Who was I kidding? It was useful all of the time, they've never bothered to close their mouths.
"What was that for?" Scott's voice interrupted my path of reading and I looked up with a disapproving frown.
"Pay back is f*cking sweet, isn't it?" Liam laughed with a proud smile.
"Ally" Scott whined, looking directly at me as if I was going to do something to stop the ongoing war between the two.
"Please sort it out yourselves" I spoke quietly with a shake of my head and another roll of my eyes. "You two act as you are four year olds" I stated.
"He started it though" Liam retorted, pointing to Scott who crossed his arms over his chest.
"I'm home!" Aria called as she entered the room; she didn't know what she had just walked into, the poor girl. "I've been shopping" she waved the bags in her hand with a wide smile.
"Wait, does that say Victoria's Secret?" Liam's eyes widened and that familar grin grew on his thin lips.
"Oh great, I leave for three hours and boyfriend forgets how to read" Aria sighed as she wandered upstairs, the sound of her heels on the wood echoed.
"Man, you're on your own" Liam spoke abruptly; rushing upstairs, following his girlfriend and leaving Scott and I alone.
"Want to play?" Scott offered the spare controller to me with a soft smile.
I felt my cheeks heat up for some reason and I shook my head, "No thank-you" I paused, "I'm not the video game type." I dog-eared the corner of my page, stood from the couch and fixed my dress.
"So, you're going to leave me here?" Scott frowned. "Alone" he paused, "with nobody to talk to."
"Are you forgetting who you're talking about?" I smiled gently, "I'm not one to talk much."
"There's always a time to try new things" Scott smiled, standing up also and abandoning the game controller. "And wasn't I going to teach you soccer?" he questioned with a grin.
"No. Scott, it's not happening" I shook my head and rushing out of the room, knowing where the conversation may lead.
Me + sports = enemies.
"Aw, c'mon, you can't hide forever!" Scott followed me like a puppy. Perhaps Aria was right, he strangely seemed like a puppy.
"I will and I shall" I replied, attempting to escape his persistance. I trotted upstairs and knew if I attempted to hide in my bedroom, he won't dare enter.
Such a wrong decision.
I forgot Aria and Liam were spending 'quality' time together; I had to make a detour to the rooftop hangout unless I wanted to hear them 'expressing their emotions.'
"You can't escape me" Scott chuckled as I sat on the couch on the rooftop.
"It was worth a try, wasn't it?"
