I woke up early by 7am,i quickly ran to the bathroom to shower, after which i put on my clothes in preparation for school.
I grabbed my backpack and ran downstairs to see a shirtless Alex with his perfect abs in display,he was making coffee in the kitchen.
"Hey what are you doing in my kitchen and why are you naked?"I yelled.
"Good morning to you too Henderson" He said, ignoring my approach.
"Hey i was asking you a question"I yelled.
"Why do you always have to bark Olivia,you can see I'm busy here and if i can remember clearly your parents said i should feel at home so that means i have equal rights here as you,and i can put on whatever i want,i can stay shirtless for the whole day,how is that a problem to you"He said, ignoring me as he continued making his coffee.
"Hey this is my house and i get to decide who does what and how you behave"I said.
"Why do you have to annoy me this early beautiful morning?"He asked.
"Well my morning was also beautiful until i saw your ugly face!"I scoffed.
"More like handsome face"He smirked.
"Pfft,not even close"I hissed.
"Well all the girls think I'm hot" He said.
"All those girls are blind"I scoffed.
"Whatever makes you sleep Henderson"He said.
"Why aren't you prepared for school?" I asked, changing the topic.
"And how is that your business?"He asked.
"You're in my house so it's one hundred percent my business"I said.
"Well i don't see how it's your business so run along now or you'll be late for school"He said.
"Wait till i tell your mum you're skipping school"I threatened.
"That's your problem,just admit it Olivia,you just want to spend time with me"He said smirking.
"You wish" I scoffed.
"Prove me wrong,you came down here,all prepared for school but instead of going to school you're here exchanging words with me"He said, pouring coffee into his mug and then took a sip.
"I was on my way to school until i saw you here, shirtless,half naked, infact practically naked,the boxer you're even putting on is hiding very little"I pointed at the bulge in his pants.
"Whatever, it's morning,my family and i need to settle first"He said, running his pants.
"Ew"I muttered and he laughed.
"Run along now,i need to rest"He said.
"Have you forgotten this is my house?you don't get to tell me what to do"I said folding my arms.
"And have you forgotten you're going to school? You'll be late"He said, walking past me into the living area.
I trailed behind him.
"That is no business of yours,why aren't you going to school?"I asked.
"And how's that your business?"He asked as he sat down on the couch, drinking his coffee.
"Look Alex,i don't have your time right now I-"
"I think you do have my time,if not you wouldn't be here telling me all this shit"He said.
"Look Alex....infact why am i wasting my saliva with you"I said.
"Exactly,now get lost, you're spoiling my view"He said.
"Well i don't care whether you're coming to school or not just make sure you don't tell anyone that we're living together or else you're dead meat"I threatened.
"First of all, you're not the boss of me, secondly i can do whatever i please, thirdly,why would i tell anyone that I'm living with this....um why would i tell anyone that I'm living with you, I can't spoil my image like that"He said and i heaved a sigh of relief.
Great now,my worries has come to an end. Earlier i was worried that Alex would go ahead and blabber about us living together,that would have stained my image.
I don't know why my parents have to torture me like this, seeing him in school everyday was already a punishment but now i have to tolerate living with this cunt!
"Good"I said as i spun around, heading towards the door but i was stopped on my tracks by Alex's voice calling behind me.
"Olivia" He called.
"See you in school"He smirked and i scoffed, ignoring him and left the house.
Why do i have this feeling that this will be a very long month.
"Hey babe,you don't look too good, anything the matter?"Zoey asked.
"I just didn't get enough sleep last night, that's probably why"I said.
"Oh sorry honey" She said and i gave her a weak smile.
"Have you perhaps seen Jane?"I asked.
"Nope,she called earlier this morning,she said she was going on a three days trip with her parents,so she won't be in school till then"She said.
"Oh,why didn't she tell me?"I asked.
"She would have if you were picking your calls" Zoey said.
"She called me?"I asked.
"About three times yesterday"She said and i pulled out my phone to see three missed calls from Jane.
"Oh my bad,my phone was jn silent"I said.
"All the time!"She said.
"Hey don't blame me, I just don't like being disturbed when I'm sleeping"I said in my defense and she shrugged.
"I'll call her later when i get home"I said.
"Okay" She said.
"Hey any news?"I asked.
"The usual duh!"I scoffed.
"Well no news, everything is going pretty smoothly today"She said.
"That's good"I said.
"Hey so what's your plan to get back at Alex?"She asked.
"I don't know yet but I'll definitely think of something soon,that boy has been pestering at ho....how...um i mean he's been pestering all through yesterday"I said.
"Yesterday?but you weren't in school yesterday so how did he pester you?"She asked "That reminds me,Alex was also absent in school yesterday"She added.
"Um...I don't know, I saw him at a coffee shop and he was annoying me"I lied,heat creeping up on my forehead.
"Don't mind him, I don't know why he's so jobless,he has nothing better to do than to be pestering us everytime"She said.
"Just forget about Alex, I'll deal with him later"I said and then the doorbell rang.
"Hey let's go to the cafeteria, I'm starving"I said.
"Me too"She stated and we got up to leave for the cafeteria.
We arrived at the already crowded cafeteria with students everywhere.
We went to the food counter to get our meals and then plodded over to our usual table.
We sat down, discussing over our food.
"Hey,here comes Alex"Zoey said.
"Over there"She said, pointing towards the entrance.
I turned my head to see Alex coming towards us alongside his squad.
"Hey my favorite losers,mind if we join you?"Alex's annoying voice said and i furrowed my eyebrows at him.
"What do you want Alex?"Zoey asked.
"Nothing, I just wanted to check up on my favorite idiot"He said.
"Hey watch your mouth or else-"
"Or else what?" He cut in.
"Get lost,i don't have your time right now" I said,my temper rising.
"Hey that's no way to talk to your housem.....aaaaaaa"He almost exposed us.
"House what?"Justin,one of his friends asked.
"Nothing,slip of tongue,she always gets me angry and makes me say nonsense"He covered up.
Phew,that was a close one!.
"Hey Alex,take your stupid bunch of idiots and get out of my sight!"I yelled angrily.
"What if I don't?"He smirked.
"Don't tempt me Alex,my patience is running low" I warned.
"Well, I was just passing by and decided to say hello but since you're not in your best mood, I'll catch ya later"He winked and then walked past is with his set of morons following behind.
"What was that?"Zoey asked.
"What?"I asked, cluelessly.
"The winking?why was Alex winking at you?"She asked.
"I don't know,why don't you ask him, I think he'll be in the best position to answer that"I said.
"You know what? nevermind,i can never understand you both anyway"She said and turned to focus on the food in front of her.
I arrived home later at noon to meet Alex in the living room with a plate of bacon and cheese in his hands and his focus was on the Tv.
I walked past him not bothering to acknowledge his presence as i skidded down to the kitchen to grab an apple which i bit off as i made my way upstairs.
I threw off my backpack across the room and pulled down my bun.
I rushed into the bathroom, pulling off my clothes as i took a quick shower. Afterwards,i went back downstairs to the kitchen to make sandwiches for myself.
As i was busy making my sandwiches i heard footsteps behind me and turned to see Alex standing by the door with an annoying smirk plastered on his silly face.
"What do you want?"I asked.
"What i mean is that i want you to make sandwiches for me too" He said.
"And what makes you think that I, Olivia Marinette Henderson will make sandwiches for you?"I asked.
"Because I'm awesome and you can't resist my awesomeness"He smirked.
"Get lost Alex,I don't have your time right now"I said.
"Just make sure you make extra sandwiches for me"He said.
"Because we live together and it's your duty to take care of me, remember?"He said.
"First of all,why would i make sandwiches for you?As your girlfriend or what?"
"You could be if you wanna"He winked.
"Shut up,and secondly I think it's vice versa,i clearly remember my parents saying they're entrusting you with my welfare"I said.
"Olivia,Olivia,when will you add some brains to that empty head of yours?"He asked.
"Hey Alex I'm warning you,if you dare say one more word to insult me, I'll chop your balls with this knife"I threatened, gesturing with the knife in my hand.
"Ok calm down,no need to get so worked up, I was only fooling around with you"He said.
"Thank God you finally agreed that you're nothing but a big bag of stupidity"I said.
"Hey watch it! I'm only tolerating these insults from you because i want to live in peace but seems like you don't like a peaceful environment,you want war right? I'll give you war"He simpered.
"You look stupid right now Alex"I rolled my eyes at him.
"Stupidly awesome"He smirked.
"Argh wherever did i meet this idiot?"I asked.
"Huh?"I asked, dumbfounded.
"We met in school, remember?"He replied.
"Just get lost"I said as i finished up with my sandwich and dished it out on a flat plate.
"Hey where's my share?"He asked.
"Do I look like your servant?And besides when you were busy eating Bacon and cheese you didn't remain for me so why would i include your share in my sandwich?"I asked.
"Because I'm awesome and you can't resist my awesomeness"He smirked.
"Get a grip of yourself Alex and stop boasting,now if you'll excuse me,i have better things to be doing"I said as i walked past him with my plate of sandwiches.
"Hey girl"Zoey said.
"Hey"I said dryly.
"What's with the dry response and why's your face like that?"She asked, raising her eyebrow at me.
"It's nothing, I'm just tired"I said.
"What made you tired?"She asked.
"Stressful night"I said and she winked at me.
"What?"I asked, furrowing my eyebrow at her.
"Who's the boy?"She asked.
"What boy?"I asked.
"The one that got you stressed last night"She teased.
"Stop it Zoe, there's no boy, I was just busy with things at home"I said.
"Yeah that reminds me,if i can recall,you said your parents travelled"She said.
"So why don't i come over,we can have a slumber party,just me and you, what do you think?"She asked.
"No Alex is.....coming"I almost exposed my self.
That was a close one,i can't risk anyone knowing that i stay with that Fool.
"Coming?where?"She asked turning her head in search of Alex "I don't see Alex anywhere around"She said.
"Oh yeah,he just walked past us,thank God he didn't see us, I've had enough of him already,i don't even wanna engage in a conversation with him right now"I said.
"Well sadly that's not gonna happen"She said.
"Why?"I asked, confused.
"Speaking of the devil"She said, pointing towards the entrance and i turned to see Alex heading towards our direction.
"Great" I muttered.
"And you know what will be more great?If we can talk"He said as he approached us.
"And what makes you think I'll wanna talk to you?"I asked.
"Because it's important"He said through gritted teeth.
"Hey what's going on here?"Zoey asked.
"I'll talk to you later Zoe,Brb"I said as i got up and followed Alex to an empty classroom.
"What do you want?"I asked.
"Um,Liv....How do i say this so you won't get upset?"He said scratching the back of his head.
"Spill Alex,you know anything that comes from you always annoys me" I said.
"Um...okay...my friends kinda wanna come over to my house and you know I'm staying with you so i don't know...."
"No fucking way!"I cut in.
"Hey please Olivia, I promise no one else will find out,if i wasn't staying at you house then I'd have had them come over to my place,they normally come to my house frequently"He said.
"No way Alex,we agreed not to let anyone we're staying together"I said.
"Please Olivia,if i don't let them come they'll suspect that I'm keeping something from them"He said.
"Still no"I said.
"Come on Liv, please,do something nice for once"He said.
"Niceness and me don't go together,this is the end of this discussion"I said and turned to leave but he pulled me back, yanking me.
"If you don't agree to this then you'll leave me with no choice but to spill the beans to everyone"He threatened.
"You wouldn't dare!" I warned.
"Watch me"He smirked and left the classroom.
I ran after him and pulled him back, dragging him back with me to the class.
"Fine, I agree but this has to be between us and your friends alone"I said.
"Finally, I knew there is still some left over brain in that thick skull of yours he said, ruffling my hair and i spanked his hand away.
"Don't do that ever again"I said and stormed out of the room back to where Zoey was waiting for me.
"Hey Zoey" I smiled brightly as i took my seat beside her.
"What took you so long?"She asked.
"You know....normal stuff....you know Alex can be annoying and time wasting"I said stupidly.
"Why do i have this feeling that you're hiding something from me?"She asked, inspecting me closely.
"Me?....Hide something from you? that's pathetic,you know i wouldn't do that,that makes absolutely no sense"I blabbered nervously.
"Look,see how you're sweating, you're nervous and you only get so nervous when you're lying"She said touching my forehead as she traced the sweat on my forehead.
"Oh is the weather not so hot today, I'm feeling really hot"I said blowing my self with an exercise book.
I was a pathetic liar and i knew Zoey could see right through my stupid acts.
"Now you're being ridiculous, there's an air con blowing at high speed plus two ceiling fans in this class so you have no excuse right now, I know you're lying to me, it's really obvious and you're failing miserable at hiding it,spill the beans Liv"She said.
"Whaaaaaat......me?why would i lie to you, I'm just feeling really hot here,i think we should get out of this room"I bluffed.
"Stop it Liv, you're being ridiculous right now,tell me,what are you hiding and don't try to lie to me,i know you too well by now and i can tell when you're lying"She said.
"Me?Lying?Of course not"I said.
"Come on Liv,stop this act of yours, it's really pissing me off right now,i thought we were supposed to be best friends and that includes not keeping anything from each other so why are you lying to me?"She asked.
"I'm not lying Zoe, I'm just....um...you know...."
"Fine,since you don't wanna tell me the truth then I'm leaving, whenever you're ready to open up to me,you know where to find me"She said grabbing her bag as she stood up.
"Wait Zoe"I stopped her.
"What?Are you ready to talk now?"She asked.
"Fine, I'll tell you the truth"I said.
"Go on, I'm listening"She folded her arms.
"Sit down first"I said, indicating at her chair and then she hesitantly sat down.
"Now spill"She said with her hands still folded.
"And i don't want lies this time, trust me if i find out that you're lying again i won't forgive you easily" She said.
"Okay fine....Alex and i are..."
"Dating?" She exclaimed.
"Ew,gross,no way!"I grimaced.
"Then what?"She asked.
"Alex and I....we...are...kinda"I swallowed and took a deep breath "We're living together"I said immediately without hesitation.
"What?!"She exclaimed "You and Alex are living together!"I immediately placed my hand over her mouth.
"Hey what if someone hears you!"I said.
"OMG!This is huge!"She exclaimed.
"Terrible,this is why i didn't wanna tell you,i knew you'd react like this,look you almost got me in trouble"I said.
"Oh babe! Forget that and tell me,how,when, where?" She bombarded me with questions.
"Well,we found out our parents are friends and business partners,so our parents left us in each other's care for the next one month"I said like it was no big deal.
"Oh my goodness,wait till Jane hears this, she'll get the shock of her life,come on tell me, how's Alex like at home?"She said.
"Wait,why do i get this feeling that you're excited by what happened?"I asked.
"Of course, I'm thrilled,who would have thought that bad girl Olivia Henderson and Playboy Alexander Williams would end up living together under one roof,alone! I think there would be war happening soon,come on babe gist me, how's living with Alex like,how does he behave at home?does he walk about shirtless?"She threw questions from every angle.
"He's much more a pain in the neck at home than in school and yes he walks about shirtless and shamelessly, please stop asking all these questions,this is why i didn't wanna tell you, I don't know why you're making a fuss out of this small matter, besides you're acting like you have a crush of a kind on Alex"I said,already getting pissed.
"Duh! I'm just being curious because i know you both absolutely despise each other so it's weird having you both living under one roof,Alex should better run for his life if it's dear to him because i know you will definitely haunt him and besides this is a great opportunity to get back at him"She said.
"You're right!this is the only sensible thing you've said so far,what i should be thinking about now is how to deal with that ass-wipe"I said.
"Yeah and I'm totally stopping by at your place this weekend for a sleepover, I wanna witness this drama,it will be epic!"She said excitedly and i glared at her.
"You're making me have second thoughts about not killing Alex but rather killing you"I said.
"Hey don't blame me! I'm just saying my mind!"She defended.
"Whatever,now can we discuss something more important, we've been talking about Alex like as if he's one important person"I said.
"But this topic is really important,this is a big deal babe!"She said, making me have second thoughts on who's murder I'll be planning, whether it's gonna be hers or Alex's.
I sat down in the living room watching Tv with a bowl of popcorn in front of me.
I heard footsteps from behind and before i could turn,Alex was already sitting beside me with my popcorn now in his possession.
"Hey give that back!"I yelled.
"What if i don't?"He asked, smirking stupidly as he took a mouthful of popcorn.
"You dimwit, give me that!"I yelled, reaching out to grab my popcorn from him.
"Language Henderson"He stated.
"Shut up and give me my popcorn"I said and dragged the popcorn away from him.
I don't know why he derived pleasure in pissing me off all the time.
"What are you watching?"He asked,facing the Tv screen where Spongebob squarepants was displaying.
"Spongebob I see"He said and before i knew it,he took possession of the remote and changed the channel to WWE.
"Hey are you mad? Can't you see i was watching that?" I yelled.
"I don't like that cartoon,this is wwy better"He said,his eyes still fixed on the Tv.
I drew closer to him and tried grabbing the remote but he was fast enough to take it away.
"Idiot,give me back my remote!" I yelled.
"Law of remote control 101 states that whoever grabs the remote owns the remote"He smirked foolishly.
"That's not even a thing,i bet you made that up" I said and he shrugged.
"Give me the damn remote!"I yelled.
"I won't,now go and play"He shooed me.
"What am i?10?"i furrowed my eyebrows at him.
"Probably,if you don't wanna watch wrestling with me then feel free to use the door"He said.
"In my own house,are you nuts?"I asked.
"Whatever makes you sleep at night Henderson"He said.
"Hey stop making use of my surname!"I said.
"But it suits you way better"He said.
"Why do you always have to get me angry?"I asked.
"Because I'm amazing"He said.
"Give me back the remote!"I said, attempting to drag it from him,all to no avail.
"Don't even try"He said.
"Give me back the remote,one"I counted.
"Still no"He said.
"Nope"He said with his eyes still fixed on the Tv screen.
"Still no"He said and a mischievous smirk curled up on my face as i pounced on him, strangling him.
"Hey get off me!"He choked.
"Hand over the remote" I said but he was still reluctant. Just as i was about to hit him again,the door bell rang.
"Oops that's my cue"He said and got up as he skidded over to the door.
After a few seconds he returned with Blake and Justin,his two best friends.
"Hey Liv" Blake,the nicer one and the only sensible and reasonable one said.
"Hey" I said, standing up.
"Don't worry,she won't be bothering us"Alex said as they scooted over into the living room, occupying the chairs.
I left for my bedroom without another word.
I plumped down on the bed sighing tiredly.
I don't know what i did to deserve such a life, being stuck with such an idiotic and annoying pest.
