“I know a place we can go!” I grabbed her hand. “Just run!”
“Are you sure you want to do this?” She asked grabbing my shoulder making me face her. Her face was up close and personal to mine. She might still be intoxicated.
“I bet he keeps the hide-a-key in the same spot…. yepp. Does no one change here?” I asked while opening the door.
Florals of every kind mixed into this nausea inducing smell.
Oh right, I forgot I was hungover. MUST. HAVE. WATER. NOW!
I took the steps two at a time, up the stairs into the kitchen like I still lived there and the years hadn’t gone by. He upgraded the coffee machine, must have done a lot of upgrades considering there was a lace bra draped over the back of the couch. Same drinking glasses and new, wine glasses?, how fancy!
“Who the hell is there? I have a gun and am not afraid to shoot an intruder.” The booming male voice yelled.
“Calm down. It’s just us,” my friend yelled back, “could you please lower your voice, I am extremeeely hungover. I vow to never drink again.” She had found the couch that I swore I would have in the divorce if we ever got married. I’ll laugh at that joke later when I have more time. She found a blanket (didn’t picture him as a throw blanket/ decorative pillow type) but now that I look at it, I think it may have been someone’s dress.
“You do realize you’re breaking and entering? Is it just you?” He sounded like he was putting jeans on. Not that I was thinking about him not wearing pants or remembering that he slept in only boxers.
Get your mind focused on the current situation.
“I’m here too.” I yelled only to realize I was in need of Advil and a good mouthwash.
I heard some mumbles.
“Welcome! You guys need some bacon?” He said swooping down the stairs like a night in shining no armor. He was shirtless. Did he get a new tattoo?
“I’m good. But we have to invoke the don’t ask questions…” I said and then was interrupted by an accent pillow.
“I. MUST. BACON! FEED ME!” She said muffled under the dress she had over her eyes.
“Anything princess wants, princess gets!” He said walking into the kitchen.
I followed him.
“So we need to invoke the don’t ask questions rule we came up with year ago.” I said as he opened the refrigerator.
“You mean the one where I don’t ask you anything and you don’t tell me you’re moving away?” He grabbed the bacon and eggs.
“You know I can keep a secret.” He said looking for the frying pan.
I went over to the cupboard and returned with it.
“Just because you used to live here doesn’t mean everything is the same.” He snapped.
Now that is the old boy I used to know. All this being extremely nice to me is weird.
“Don’t be bitter that nothing in this small town changes or you are still in the rut.” I said slamming the frying pan on the the counter and rushed away.
Again. I forgot I was hungover.
