Chapter 7 Will You Be My Pretend Girlfriend?

  • SNOW'S POV
  • Please don't freak out guys,I was in no way harassed! As a matter of fact It was the best night of my life in a long while,I have to shamefully admit that. Like when Jaden just grabbed me and mushed all over me, he gave me an alternative to say no. If you wouldn't dare to say no,how do you expect me to say no to a whole Zeus. You guys must have had some encounter with the guy and have seen how hellbent hot he can be. My brain snapped,my subconscious mind knocked my dull head to remind me that Jaden is just my best friend and I am not supposed to harbor any feelings for him.
  • "It was just a long day and night too, I was overwhelmed, I was horny and most of all I had wine. So no Biggie, we will all just pretend nothing happened" I kept repeating the mantra in my head while holding down the thick ash duvet over my body.
  • My body, I gently moved my other arm to feel my body and make sure I still have some clothes on. Thankfully ,Jaden's shirt and kelvin keil boxers were still on. I could still smell his signature cologne all over me.
  • I peeked at him, raising my head up to watch his sleeping form.It was still early hours of the morning. I am used to waking up around this time to properly take out my flowers and plants ,so that they could receive the first ray of light.
  • This is a sure yummy way to wake up every morning if wishes were horses my subconscious mind taunted. He seemed to be relaxed but somehow his sleeping face was still wearing that naughty yet haughty smirk which is now making me wonder whether this favorite hunk of mine is asleep or not.
  • I gently pushed back the crease of his front hair then his stubble before my hands moved to the small of his lower lips. Lips that took me to cloud nine yesterday.I blushed as the memories kept rushing back.
  • The way he kissed me with such urgency, drinking me in like I was the last drop of water in the Sahara. See who is turning into a point after just a day's make out with Jaden, the ladies weren't wrong to follow after all. Please dont listen to my sassy subconscious mind.
  • And to be honest ,there was no part I loved like that the way he nibbled on my neck, it just did something to my senses and nerves ,when he trailed down to my boobs, my boobs weren't even bare but holy molly. I'm scared and excited at the same time of what Jaden and his indisputable lips can do to me or should I say have done to me! Me, the only girl who was supposed to be immune to this bastard.
  • I tried shaking off the bad bad thoughts that were coming to head this early morning and focused on Jaden's bare chest filled with different types of tattoos. Not too much, just a decent amount that sends deep messages. Sadly ,most of them are abstract and he has never explained their meaning to me. I only accompany him and help him put on and take the bandage till it heals. They were like some kind of symbols but that's not my brother for now. The little hair on his chest was ticklish. I had to release a small giggle.
  • He sighed, and wrapped one of his legs over my body,drawing me closer to him whispering "Snow,Mine" before going silent. Okay, his legs were pleasantly heavy on my body and the position was too intimate for supposed best friends.
  • If I wasn't so sure it was Jasper at the Masquerade party.I would have sworn it is Jaden,the way they kiss is so much similar. With urgency and ravishing wild passion. No, I shook my head. They are twins ,maybe that's why their kiss is kinda the same. You will have to kiss Jasper to compare and contrast for yourself whispered my subconscious mind again, which is supposed to be sleeping along with Jaden.
  • I sighed, didn't know how on earth things turned around so quickly. Jaden is supposed to help me seduce his twin brother Jasper but we are just a day into it and quite alright there is a lot of seduction going on. Just not in the direction I thought it would be.
  • Hope I didn't mess up when we were making out! I'm new to these things and it has to be to the person born for sex. My Brian starting thinking up random thoughts again. I sighed and moves in closer to Jaden,our body's warmth making me want to stay in this bed till I'm seventy. Maybe it was the way Jaden was being nice to me ,from the makeover ,to the dress,the karaoke night ,wine and even the way he kept playing my favorite girly songs in the car and did you see the way he sped up to open the car door for me. That wasn't enough. He freaking took me bridal style and did the Cinderella thing to my shoe.
  • There were butterflies all over my tummy and he crept over my senses. But damn those nipple bites makes me want to moan out in anticipation. "You snitching bitch, just a kiss and you are over Jasper huh" the thought killed my mushy vibes.
  • I still feel Jasper is my soulmate even though being with Jaden like that,like yesterday and not as best friends .Nothing was best friend zone about yesterday. Then I am in a deep shit. But on a more rational scale, Jaden is a ladies man and I ask if he is like that with every lady and nothing special. He can't be this sweet without years of practice and repays right?
  • Besides ignoring the fact that Jasper did little to acknowledge my makeover and dress he did promise he will make it up to me and take me on a dinner date. Who knows maybe mother universe is throwing a test at me to see if I can stand firm on my soul mate. My head was beginning to ache from all these random paranoid thoughts.
  • I tried removing Jaden's leg from over my body when he growled and held it back. I sensed his eyes on me and I quickly closed mine, I really don't have anything to tell him after all these thoughts and recalls.
  • Felt him yawing, spreading his hands wide before wrapping them around mine ,his leg still on me! He kissed my forehead and helped my head close, sniffing my hair and letting out a small growl that was threatening to wake those butterflies that overworked my tummy yesterday. "Purely Beautiful" He kissed me on the check before untangling himself from me and I peeked my eyes stealthily to watch him enter the bathroom. Wuff! That was close.
  • I pulled up,resting my head on the end trying to calm down when my stomach growled. "Already hungry buddy" I tapped my tummy before quickly closing my eyes when I heard the toilet flush.
  • Felt his present leaving the room, I woke up and quickly went to the toilet to do my business and make this red bird nest on my hair look more presentable. I came back to the sweet aroma of milkz fried eggs and sandwiches.
  • "You are awake Snow '' came his morning deep drawl. Damn, uhmmm. Now ,I am beginning to feel awkward. I moved away from the bathroom door and at the edge of his bird "Good morning Best friend" He seemed to be taken back before he let out a small smile and gestures to the tray he kept beside me "Breakfast is ready, best friend" he emphasized the friend part.
  • "You didn't have to, I am not really hungry "My stomach objected by growling loud enough for a werewolf to pick.
  • "Well, you stomach is saying entirely something else"
  • "Whatever Jaden"
  • "Just eat up" I picked the tray and kept it on my lap, drowning half of the milk at a go before I noticed Jaden's retreating back. It was covered with claw scratches.
  • "I'm sorry Jaden" He stopped before slowly turning " Sorry for what?!"
  • "Uhmm, your back and the scratches"
  • "I'm glad you aren't sorry about yesterday"
  • "Why should I be? You were only keeping to your promise by teaching me the art of seduction" That came out mean but what was I supposed to do?
  • "Okay, I will take my bath now" And he left without a word. The reason why I can't deal with Jaden if it is romantically involved,I prefer the grumpy best friend over a closed headed grumpy boyfriend!
  • "The meal is delicious and healthy as usual !" I shouted knowing fully well that his heightened senses would pick it up from miles away. But guys,the meal is really delicious and to let you in on one of my best friend's secrets. These milks are fresh ones directly from the animal source. I will leave the rest to your imaginations.
  • I finished eating ,washed the dishes .That's the least I could do to show my appreciation without saying "Thank you."Afterwards I went to take a long shower too since Jaden was nowhere to be found. After taking my bath and putting on my sweatpants and one of the go-to shirts that I always keep over at Jaden's place. Wondering if any of his hook ups have confronted him about it.
  • The house was boring without Jaden's presence . I Switched on my cell phone and started playing an egg squash game lying on the living room sofa which kept reminding me of everything that happened and should have happened if I didn't interrupt with the best friend excuse. Which in fact is not an excuse but the simple truth.
  • "Be mine Snow" I stood up startled by Jaden's unannounced ambiguous statement that should have been a question. " Jaden,I don't get you?"
  • "Be my girlfriend Snow?"
  • "But I am your best friend?" He scratched his wet head. It's either he worked out or took an early morning swim,honestly I can't really say. He is confusing the heck out of my brain cells.
  • "You know, to make Jasper jealous. I mean no man would stand and watch his girl being pawned by his playboy kid brother" Jaden must have thought thoroughly about this for his egoistic ass to admit to the 'kid brother ' label so willingly.
  • "But what about the 48 laws of seduction?"
  • "It will be the perfect condition for you to learn as my girl under my roof. And we were so good yesterday,anybody will have no doubt that we are couples" Too much information at once.
  • "Wait a minute Jaden, under the same roof . Nowz you want to talk about yesterday and everything is freaking confusing!" I said a bit loudly. He took a deep breath and I did the same.
  • "Why don't we have a seat and talk it out reasonably"
  • "Okay…"
  • "Firstly, Jasper seemed strong headed yesterday and after much thought. I believe we need to go for the more urgent drastic option. The blood moon is fast approaching you know"
  • "Okay, what about yesterday?"
  • "That was also a lesson, I wanted you to experience how a real lady is used to being treated and hope it won't take you unawares if you and Jasper ever get to go out" Sarcasm noted.
  • "Why the hell do I have to move in with you?!" He smirked before rubbing his hands together and looking at me square in the face.
  • "To make it more believable ,it will also be convenient for me to tutor you on your seduction skills plus added bonus of me treating you to yummy delicious and healthy meals"
  • "Jaden ,but …" I thought of the possible things that could go wrong
  • "Jaden, what about your girlfriends?"
  • "I told you, they are just on mutual understanding. I am not in a relationship with anyone. I am also doing this for me. For the period of the time that you will be here with me. I will be faithful to you,that way people will believe that I have changed and settle for good*
  • "Fair enough" My head was getting heavy. Too much has happened in too little time.
  • "Well ,can I think about it atleast?"
  • "It's your wish but the blood moon is knocking around the corner, Snow. You should be perfectly aware of the consequence"
  • "Well,you are right. What about Rose and your parents .How will they take it?"
  • "Leave everything to me, I just want a yes from you?"
  • "What about boundaries"
  • "And what about boundaries?" He asked, coming close to me,our breath tingling with tension. I coughed to break the connection.
  • "You know what I mean Jaden, you aren't that stupid"
  • "Snow,your virginity is safe with me as long as you don't plead for me to take you" He smirked
  • "Pervert!"
  • "You love me like that Snow"
  • "Yes, I do " I said, defeated and hugging him back while I gently soothe the claw scars I left on his back.
  • "What if it doesn't work out,I hope we are not making a big mistake Jaden"
  • "Shh, it's going to be alright. Don't stress over unnecessary paranoid thoughts. Reserve the energy for packing up your stuff"
  • "Jaden,that's too soon!"
  • "If it's worth doing, it is worth doing earlier " Jaden smiled and that smile seemed to hold promises of thousands of things. Which sounds both promising and exciting at the same time. I stood there smiling at my jot pretending to be my boyfriend, feeling as if he had just hatched the world's greatest misery.
