[collab with the newly official angel gigi♥ SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG!]
"You need to stop getting a booth here," I told Carter as i slid into the seat across from him, picking out one of the open beer bottles resting in the bucket.
"Why?" He asked, taking a beer for himself, a blank stare on his face.
"Do you see any of the other guys sharing a booth?" My eyes roamed around Absinthe, a place that i had been to too many times to count. It was the most common place for all of us cops, mostly because of how close it was to the station, and the fact that the food was almost as good as the hot girls who served it. Though right now, the only girl that was on my mind was Spencer.
He shook his head, a grin on his face as he took a sip of the beer before setting it down, "Does it look like we're on a date Drew? Am I making you uncomfortable?"
"Don't be an as.shole," I replied dryly, taking a sip of the beer before setting it down.
"Are you in a bad mood?" Carter asked, raising his eyebrow.
I scrubbed my hands over my face. Things had been a little crazy lately with work and my dad. He had called back after that night when i was with Spencer, only to tell me that he wanted me to destroy all the information on one of his guys we had in the system as soon as possible along with a few other tasks. And just when i thought that things were finally coming to a slow with him too. I was an idiot to think they ever would.
I shook my head, "I'm fine, sorry."
"Something with Mikayla?" He asked, raising his beer to his lips.
"Surprisingly, no. Al has actually been really good with picking her up lately...i'm kind of confused." For the past two weeks, Alison had picked up Mik relatively on time and i had absolutely no clue why. It was completely not her.
"Well at least one of us is doing good," He mumbled and i raised an eyebrow, waiting for i'm sure another complaint about Aeryn to slip out. I would never understand why he was still with her.
"What now? Did she kick you out again?" I asked dryly. I was so used to it by now that nothing he could tell me about her would faze me.
"Not this week, but it's only Tuesday," He said, grinning though honestly it was just sad. His whole relationship was.
I nodded, "Problems with Jord? I saw the two of you at the ball..." I trailed off. It didn't surprise me that he was sleeping with her.
He leaned back in his seat, biting back a grin as he spoke, "Yeah. She's a good partner."
"I figured," I laughed shaking my head..it amazed me how many girls fell for him, even when they found out he was with Aeryn, "Her fiance didn't seem to mind."
"The guy is a d.ouche," He shrugged and i had to resist rolling my eyes..that was pretty hypocritical.
"Says the guy who is cheating on his girlfriend of what? Eight years?" I cocked an eyebrow.
"Seven," He corrected. "I never said I was perfect."
I shook my head, "It doesn't matter, you should've ended things a long time ago. Either one of you should, your relationship is just one huge mess. I mean, just think about all girls you could sleep with without feeling like a do.uche for once if you ended it," I smirked at him.
"Thanks for the advice mr. haven't-dated-a-girl-in-years," He said but i just shrugged. Me and Spencer had been together a lot lately, though i wasn't sure if we were "dating" per say. "What was that?" Carter sat up straight and looked at me.
"That little shrug thing...are you dating someone?" He asked me curiously.
"You sound like a fu.cking girl," I rolled my eyes...i don't know why i didn't want to tell him about Spence, but i didn't.
"And you're too pu.ssy to answer my question," He shot back.
I finished off my beer before answering, "Don't you think if i had a girlfriend you'd know by now?"
"No," He said, shaking his head as he set down his empty bottle before taking another. "You tend to keep things to yourself."
"I don't," I narrowed my eyes on him, grabbing another beer. I mean, sure i was a fairly quiet person and i definitely wasn't going to go around sharing my life story with everyone, but i told Carter pretty much everything.
"It took you almost a year to introduce me to Al."
I cocked a brow at how ridiculous that testimant was. "We went to school with her..."
"So it's my fault for not paying attention?"
"You were too obsessed with Aeryn," I smirked. And it was true...at one point, the two had been crazy in love. It still amazed me that their relationship had failed so badly.
He shook his head, dissmissing the thought, "So who is she?"
"Your new girl," He said blandly. "I know you Drew."
"Well, for one she's not 'my girl' and two, her name is Spencer," I told him reluctantly. It was weird telling someone else about her....before things had seemed like it was another world or something...now it seemed a lot more real, i guess.
"Is that all you're going to tell me?" He raised a brow and i nodded. A slow smirk appeared on his face as he parted his lips to speak again, "You must really like her."
"And why do you think that?" I questioned his reasoning as i took a sip of my beer.
"You're not sharing anything about her...therefore you actually care about her," He explained to me, like it was a simple concept. I shook my head, that wasn't it....was it?
"Alright, fine. I'll tell you all you want about Spencer..ask away," I gestured to him.
"How is she in bed?" He asked, grinning widely. F.ck, i should've know that would be his first question.
"I....wouldn't know," I told him honestly, sighing at the thought. "She's a virgin."
Carter laughed, "You've got to be kidding me."
I shook my head, "Dead serious."
"So what the hell are you sticking around for?!? Is she really that good?" He asked and i found myself nodding immediately, without thought. She really was something special...and definitely worth the wait.
"I think so."
"She must be really hot or good with her mouth then," He shook his head like he still didn't believe it. And that's where me and Carter differed a little. I had a kid and therefore i was looking for personality just as much in a girl. He already had a girlfriend at home and was therefore looking for se.x and that's pretty much it.
"Both," I said with a smirk. "And i think you know her sister, Whitney."
He leaned forward, blinking before parting his lips to speak, "Whitney?"
"Yeah," I nodded, amused by his surprised look. I knew that he liked her...i could tell when he was talking to her that day. "The girl from speed dating."
"I wasn't speed dating," He narrowed his eyes on me, his eyes falling on the bottle held inbetween his hands as his elbows rested on the table. "And I know who Whitney is...."
"I could tell by your reaction," I smirked, loving seeing this.
He shook his head, "She never gave me her number."
"I can't say that I'm surprised," I shrugged, not offense to Carter but i really didn't blame her if she didn't, especially if he knew he had a girlfriend.
"Come on, I'm not that bad," He said, but he really was...maybe not always, but he was now.
I stared at him, my eyebrow raised. "You're dating Aeryn.... sleeping with Jord.... and you probably -"
"Stop," He cut me off, probably because he knew that what i was going to say would be right. "If I met the right girl, I wouldn't cheat."
I nodded, "I think you'd have to break up with your girlfriend first."
He took a long sip of his beer, his face showing how right i was. "I know,"
"What are you going to do if Aer wants to get married or have kids?" I asked him seriously. I didn't understand how he didn't realize how wrong it was that he was still with her....and that it would be so easy to end things with her.
He shook his head, "She takes our relationship just as seriously as i do and she might threaten it, but she'd never follow through with either."
I shrugged...in my eyes she was crazy enough to do anything but i guess he didn't see it that way. "I'm just telling you that it's not worth the chances. Get out while you can, i wish i did with Alison."
"Now that's a lie. You loved Ali until the moment you caught her cheating," He pointed out..and he was right. I would've done anything for that girl and i planned on spending my whole life with her..and then she ruined it.
"Yeah, and the fact that we had Mikayla already just made everything harder. Imagine having to end things with Aeryn if she was pregnant with your child," I stated, though i doubt it would ever happen. Not only could i never imagine Carter as a dad...but i could imagine Aeryn as a mom even less. They'd have one screwed up child, especially with the relationship they had. They were worse than me and Ali and we weren't even together anymore.
"Drew, she's not going to have a kid."
I shrugged, "You never know."
