CHAPTER THIRTEENcopyright protection52PENANA7zupJby0C0

By lunch, I had probably set a record for getting most stares. My friends had tried all their best to support me that even Veena surrendered her precious apple to me. We sat down on our usual table. Veena, Pete, and Charmayne were in front of me while Caleb sat beside me.copyright protection52PENANAwFBQV0VX6b

I picked the apple Veena gave as Caleb started telling us his latest adventure in the mountain. I took a bite of the apple as we listened. But- the apple was suddenly taken from my hand and I looked up to see Aly about to bite into it.copyright protection52PENANAzxYieIWC5N

“Ah!” I screamed as I stood up. “That’s mine!”copyright protection52PENANAjcnNB6Y97B

Aly simply threw me a smirk before biting into the apple. Logan and Spencer were behind him and he signaled for them to leave as he continued to eat my apple. That was when I realized that the whole cafeteria was quiet. I looked around and saw that everyone was watching us.copyright protection52PENANA9DgLubLp9S

I glared at Aly but he just smiled at me as I sat down. He dropped on the open seat beside me and flung an arm around my shoulder as he put the apple down on the table. He then gave my friends a smile.copyright protection52PENANABJpA1DiYgn

“Forgive my rudeness the first time we met. My name is Reed, Seraphina’s brother,”copyright protection52PENANAMAz9oagmkn

The gang stared at him with mouth agape. I kicked Veena in the shin and she glared at me. I kept gesturing to Aly and her mouth formed into a silent ‘o’ as she gathered herself and gave Aly a smile and a hand to shake. Aly quickly took it and shook her hand.copyright protection52PENANAYt1eewq0Wz

“My name is Veena,” she started. “Sera’s hottest and most outgoing friend,”copyright protection52PENANASyih8kVqjc

As soon as Veena broke the ice, everyone took turns introducing their selves to Aly. After shaking everyone’s hand, Aly picked the apple up again and started to eat it. I glared at him but I hadn’t removed his arm around my shoulder.copyright protection52PENANAN5MnfayvxS

“That’s mine,” I groaned at him.copyright protection52PENANATvlVKAraAo

“Too late,” he smirked at me.copyright protection52PENANAKtW3L4oGvH

“What are you doing here at our table?” I groaned as I looked around the cafeteria that was still watching us.copyright protection52PENANASjMEG1Pexm

“You said lunch, remember?” he answered as he finished the apple. “That I should take it or leave it so I’m taking it,” he continued, dancing the core of the apple in front of me and the gang laughed at us. I glared at my brother. I hadn’t meant for those words to be taken literally. It was a deal just to shut him up earlier. And now, I regretted it since that apple was sweet.copyright protection52PENANA6qRsmC2NMD

The rest of the day passed by in a blur. Aly had stopped being harsh to my friends and by the end of the day, I knew their fear of him was slowly subsiding. He opened the car door for me again as I waved goodbye to my friends.copyright protection52PENANAcx68ASdZyI

“Do you have job this Saturday, Aly?” I asked during dinner.copyright protection52PENANAGr1s6HuVW1

Aly looked up from his plate and thought for a minute. He munched a piece of his steak as he stared at the ceiling. “No. I don’t think I have any that day. Unless they call. Why?”copyright protection52PENANAh3s9vOLyCy

“Well. . .” I drifted off; thinking about the movie I wanted to see. “Can we go to the movies? There’s one I want to watch,”copyright protection52PENANAcO6iXHaaGJ

“Sure. We’ll go then. We can also eat out after the movie. We haven’t dated in a while, have we?” he answered and asked as he continued to eat.copyright protection52PENANATmbUPhCkdy

I bowed my head low as a blush crept up my cheeks. I knew Aly hadn’t meant anything by it. After all, we dated several times before so what made it different this time? Was it the fact that my heart had started to beat erratically for him?copyright protection52PENANAmvBOE7DqFg

Aly noticed my silence as he asked what was wrong. I shook my head and hoped that my blush had long since vanished as I lifted my head to give him a smile and told him that Saturday’s a date. He gave me his lopsided smile as we continued to eat.copyright protection52PENANAZR55a2Nldt

Now, I can’t wait ‘til Saturday.copyright protection52PENANA56Qg0FxDZK

Was it normal for a sister to be this excited for a date with her brother? I knew it wasn’t. But- why was I? I tried kidding myself that it was because it had been almost three months since I went out with Aly since he was busy with his job and a lot had happened.copyright protection52PENANAblgNaUVOlB

I buried myself with my assignments and projects that were stack as high as the Eiffel tower ‘cause I missed school for a month. I made sure to rest my hand once in a while since the doctor told me too. There were fewer circumstances where it would go numb but I still couldn’t lift up a pitcher full of water with it.copyright protection52PENANA4lt9qDceZp

The doctor told me to have faith because it can still be fix by rehabilitation but- I wasn’t rising my hopes.copyright protection52PENANAH4wxlxdSad

There was nothing more painful than getting your hopes high and watch it shatter in pieces.copyright protection52PENANADmzTaJO5xa

It was before dinner that I finally conceded to stop working for the day. I stretched my arms above me to remove the stiffness from sitting half of the day. I walked out of the room to look for Aly. I saw him in the kitchen; cooking our dinner.copyright protection52PENANAGCv9LWNYaN

He was shirtless and I couldn’t help but stare at his corded back. He looked so strong, so lean, and I suddenly gotten the urge to ran my hands along his back; to feel him beneath my palms. My breathing hitched up as a sudden desire built up in the pit of my stomach.56Please respect copyright.PENANAXypLlpxMJh
It was alien.copyright protection52PENANAoSSUqdrD6C

It was new.copyright protection52PENANAQJYpD99seH

Suddenly, he turned to me and I saw him smirk- obviously catching me staring at him. Unlike some people who’ll find it weird with their sister’s staring at them, Aly even raised his arms on his side as he wiggled his brow at me.copyright protection52PENANADVj9555T3g

I threw him the first thing my hand had gotten a hold off and it was a little too late before I realized that it was a mug. Eyes wide with fear, I watched as it came hurling towards Aly. But- instead of it crashing into him, Aly had caught it with no trouble.copyright protection52PENANAGr8ymyLNcR

“Nice catch,” I complimented as a smile broke in my face.copyright protection52PENANAq3BpsfyCIN

He winked at me before he put the mug on the counter as he turned his stove off. He busied himself with finishing the dinner as he told me to sit down and wait. I followed his order and sat crossed-legged in my usual chair.copyright protection52PENANAkmJDvOJBIN

“Put a shirt on please,” I started as I tried looking anywhere but him. “It’s distracting, I mean- unethical,”copyright protection52PENANARof0XBzJpL

Aly laughed as he put the plate of food in front of me before he quickly put on his shirt that was hanging off his chair. He was about to take a seat when the doorbell rang. I looked up at the hallway in confusion. The gang hadn’t told me they were visiting so it was impossible to be them.copyright protection52PENANABPPdeitNUc

Before I could stand up, Aly was already on his way to answer the door. I listened to him as he opened his door and I heard a man greeted him.copyright protection52PENANAAeyjS38CEQ

“Who is it, Aly?” I shouted at him.copyright protection52PENANAqwfFxdg6WG

“Just someone from work,” he answered.copyright protection52PENANASxwHLLZeyU

My brows raised in shock. Work? I bit my lips to stop myself from smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve never seen a single one of Aly’s workmates. And at the moment, one was at my home. Silently, I stood up from my chair and took a peek.copyright protection52PENANAq99Zt22BEH

Aly was talking to a man who looked much older than us. He was probably Eden’s age or younger. He has gold-blonde hair that fell to his nape and eyes so blue they looked like violet. He looked behind Aly and saw me before I could even hide.copyright protection52PENANAs5eIKLV1RR

He gave me a smile before he greeted me. “Good evening. You must be Gretel,”copyright protection52PENANAHKpdraYrpx

“Huh?” I gave him a confused smile as I returned his greetings. “It’s Sera actually,”copyright protection52PENANAlQGvP9xRLc

He laughed at me. “Pardon me. It was an inside joke. We like calling this kid Hansel in the office,” he answered, patting Aly’s head like he was a little kid.copyright protection52PENANAzehNW2yR3q

Aly pushed the stranger’s hand away and glared at him but the man simply gave him a laugh. “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Sera. I’m Polaris,” he must have seen the look on my face because he laughed once more. “Yes, I know it’s strange,”copyright protection52PENANAJKa8YCjX3I

“I didn’t say anything,” I protested.copyright protection52PENANAupyaVoktg6

“It’s written all over your face though,” he answered and blood rushed to my cheeks in embarrassment.copyright protection52PENANAFPkXDgZc82

To change the subject, I asked him if he was going to stay for dinner. He refused the offer saying that he still had some work to do and just dropped by to tell Aly something. I realized they were going to talk about business so I excused myself and started for the kitchen.copyright protection52PENANACRNN0MqjJu

They started to talk before I could even leave. And, without meaning too- I heard a few words that Polaris had spoken.copyright protection52PENANA2dUBoPZJif
