“Do you reckon one crate will be enough?” Luke asked his boyfriend as they walked through their local supermarket, stopping in the beer and spirits isle.
Noah looked at him and thought for a minute.
“How many people did we invite again? Aaron, Casey, Jade, Jeff..a few people from school.. maybe we should get two crates of beer then.”
“Wait, wait back up there a minute..” Luke said stepping in between his boyfriend and the shelves.
“Jade is coming?”
“Yes.. what’s wrong with that? I invited her yesterday. I figured you would like your cousin coming to our housewarming party.” Noah replied, looking confused.
“I do..you know Jade and I are close.. But I invited Alison too, I told you I had.”
“So? I don’t want a catfight kicking off the second Jade and Ali lay eyes on each other!” Luke exclaimed, frustrated by his boyfriend’s ignorance.
“They won’t fight, it’s a party, they’ll party.” Noah shrugged and gently pushed Luke out of the way to pick up a crate of beer and put it in their shopping cart.
“Noah, you have met those girls right? Jade and Ali plus Casey and booze equals catfight.”
“Don’t worry, everything will be fine. Jade told me she has a new boyfriend anyway. So there won’t be a catfight over Casey.” Noah said reassuringly.
“Yeah.. do you know who the new boyfriend is? Casey.” Luke said crossing his arms in front of his chest, looking his boyfriend in the eye, daring him to say something.
“Yeah, oh. I better tell Aaron to keep his ex busy tonight. It’s too late to uninvite any of them now.” Luke said annoyed.
Noah sighed and picked up a second crate and flinched when he lifted it into the cart. His shoulder still hurt from time to time thanks to Zac but he didn’t want to worry Luke any more than he already did.
Every time he woke up in a sweat after another nightmare the first thing he did was look at the man sleeping next to him and let out sigh of relief if Luke was indeed still sleeping.
“Let me do that. You shouldn’t be lifting heavy stuff.” Luke said half apologetic, half worried.
“I’m fine, Luke, really.”
“Let me just worry about you a little please. You were shot remember?”
“So were you.” Noah replied playfully.
Luke frowned and gave his boyfriend a confused look until it dawned on him what he meant.
“I was shot AT. Your father didn’t hit me, I fell. Zac did hit you. I can still hear that gunshot.. I’ve never been so scared in my life.” Luke said and bit his lip as he thought back to that moment.
“Hey” Noah said softly and gently lifted up his boyfriends chin to look him in the eye.
“I’m fine, the shoulder still bugs me a little sometimes but I’m fine. We both made it out alive and those Zeevil twins are out of our lives forever.”
Luke smiled and happily welcomed Noah’s lips on his own.
“Now come on, we have a party to throw.” Noah said when they broke the kiss.
“So what time will everyone get here?” Aaron asked, taking a sip of his beer as he sat down on the sofa.
“Around 9 just like you should have. Why are you here so early again?” Luke replied raising an eyebrow at his brother.
“Early? It’s 8! And I just had to get out of the house or I would’ve missed my party thanks to dad.”
“Your party? Funny. I thought it was mine and Noah’s party.”
“Yes. Your party that you are throwing for me and Casey because you tricked us into helping you move.”
“Tricked you? How?”
“You and that boyfriend of yours bribed us with beer and pizza. Speaking of which.. where IS Noah anyway?”
Luke rolled his eyes and knocked on his brother’s head the way you would on a door.
“Did you leave your brain in Seattle Aaron? I told you when you got here Noah is getting pizzas with Jeff.”
“Oh right.. Jeff.. Who’s that again?” Aaron asked laughingly.
“Aaron - shut up”
Aaron laughed at his little brother’s bad mood.
“Oh come on Luke, I’m your older brother, I’m supposed to tease and annoy you.”
“Yeah and you’re loving every minute of it, always have.” Luke sighed and looked at the clock.
“He hasn’t been gone that long, has he?” Aaron asked picking up on Luke’s worries.
Luke blushed as he realised he got caught.
“No.. it’s just.. after what happened.. I just never ever want to go through that again.”
Aaron nodded, a serious look on his face.
“How are you holding up? I know you’re worried about Noah but how are you doing after everything that’s happened?”
“I don’t know.. I’m ok I guess. They didn’t really do anything to me. I wasn’t the one that got shot.”
“But his arm is fine again right?”
“Yeah.. more or less. It’s still sore and he should take it easy, no lifting heavy things and stuff.. but he doesn’t really follow doctor’s orders.” Luke sighed.
“So he didn’t carry you over the threshold then on your first night here?” Aaron joked, trying to lighten the mood.
“We got an apartment together, we didn’t get married.” Luke chuckled.
“Ah you might as well have, you two are like an old married couple already anyway.” Aaron replied.
At that same moment Luke heard the front door open and let out a breath he hadn’t realised he was holding.
“Honey I’m home” Noah called out and Luke got up to greet him, ignoring his brother’s smug “See, I’m right” look.
“Why don’t we make this party a little more interesting?” Aaron said a few hours and a few too many beers later.
“What did you have in mind?” Casey asked him, glad to get away from his girlfriend and his ex girlfriend glaring at each other.
“Let’s play spin the bottle.”
“Spin the bottle? Aaron how old do you think we are? 12?” Luke asked sarcastically.
“I think it could be fun, I’ve never played before.” Noah admitted, wrapping his arms around his boyfriend’s waist from behind and resting his head on his shoulder.
“You’ve never played before?” Luke asked, turning around in Noah’s arms.
“Nope. Never had anyone I wanted to play with.” Noah said and smiled his sexiest smile at his boyfriend.
“Luke, listen to your boyfriend, this will be fun, come on.” Casey said, trying to persuade his friend.
“Yeah come on Luke, come play with me.” Noah whispered in his boyfriend’s ear and kissed his neck.
Luke let Noah lead him over to the spot Aaron had put an empty beer bottle on the floor.
“Ok, the rules are simple, you spin the bottle and you kiss the person it points to when it stops. Male or female.” Aaron said and Luke thought he saw him sharing a look with Casey.
“Wait, wait, I’m not kissing you or Jade. I’ve had my fair share of incestuous relatives lately.” Luke protested and Aaron just shrugged.
“Who wants to go first?” Aaron smirked, hand on the bottle.
“It was your idea, you go first” Luke said, still not fully convinced he wanted to join this game.
Aaron did as he was told and spun the bottle. When it stopped it pointed at Luke who immediately threw his hands up.
“Oh no, no way. I told you, I’m not kissing you or Jade. Forget it. Try again.”
Aaron rolled his eyes and spun the bottle again, this time it pointed to a girl from Noah’s film class and neither of them seemed to mind.
Noah went next and somehow he managed to make the bottle point at Luke. He got on all fours and crawled over to Luke and kissed him. He kissed him the way he knew drove Luke crazy.. in the bedroom. He had a slight buzz going on from the beer and it made him a lot more free.
Jeff went next and got to kiss Alison and Jade got lucky and got to kiss her own boyfriend.
When it was Casey’s turn and the bottle pointed at Aaron neither of them protested and seemed reluctant to break the kiss.
They played for a while longer and Luke and Noah were accused of cheating because whenever either of them spun the bottle it stopped at the other.
It was Alison’s turn again and she spun the bottle. Everyone watched it spin and a few of the guys and some of the girls were hoping it would stop and point at them.
But it didn’t stop at any of the hopefuls. It seemed to stop at Casey but then it moved again and ended up pointing to Jade.
“No way. I’m not kissing her.” Alison protested.
“The feeling is mutual. She’d probably bite me.” Jade replied.
“Oh come on girls. Just kiss and make up.” Casey said, earning him a death glare from both Jade and Alison.
“I’m not kissing that slut.” Alison said and put her hand on the bottle to give it another spin.
“What did you just call me.”
“You heard me.. slut.”
“Take that back. Take that back or I will make you.” Jade said getting up from the floor, standing up straight, putting her hands on her hips.
“Take it back?” Alison said laughingly as she stood up as well and mirrored Jade’s pose.
“Ooh Case they’re going to fight over you.” Aaron said excited and clapped Casey on the back.
The girls glared at each other for what seemed like hours until Jade finally opened her mouth again.
“Tell me.. why am I a slut.. when it’s YOU that is the town’s porn queen?” she said emphasising the word you by poking Alison in the chest.
“At least guys actually want to be with me. I don’t have to make them think I’m pregnant or steal some other girl’s boyfriend.” Alison replied.
“I didn’t steal your boyfriend, honey. He came running back to me because you don’t know how to please a man. I guess practice doesn’t always make perfect.” Jade said with a smirk.
“I hate to break it to you, honey, but you’re not that special. He’s only with you because you’re an easy lay.” Alison retorted.
“At least I don’t pretend to be this innocent little virgin when I’ve slept with more guys than I can remember and I’m a meth addict.”
That’s when Alison snapped and launched herself at Jade. The girls fell to the ground, a tangled mess of limbs and nails. Scratching, pulling, biting, punching, slapping, kicking. The sound of fabric tearing was heard and people cheered.
“Get off me you psychopath! No wonder Casey left you, you’re crazy.” Jade yelled, trying to push Alison off of her.
“What’s wrong Jade? I thought you were used to being on your back?” Alison replied sweetly which caused another rage explosion from Jade.
Luke snapped out of his Noah induced haze and tried to separate the girls much to his brother’s and Casey’s despair. While he was trying to do so, he somehow go in the way of Alison’s hand and got a slap in the face.
He put his hand on the reddening spot on his face where Alison’s hand had hit him and sort of stumbled backwards. Noah was behind him in an instant asking if he was alright and when he nodded Noah kissed his cheek.
One of the girls cried out in pain and Luke decided it was enough and with his boyfriend’s help he dragged Alison to the kitchen, away from Jade.
“Ok.. what the hell just happened?” Luke asked Alison who was holding a tissue against her split lip.
“What happened is that your cousin is a ***** and ruined your party.” Alison snapped.
“Oh.. and I’m sorry I hit you.. that was meant for Jade.”
“You really don’t like each other do you?” Luke asked, while looking through the kitchen cabinets to find the first aid box he knew should be there somewhere.
“The slut stole my boyfriend.” Alison said matter-of-factly.
“Don’t you think Casey had a say in this too? I mean.. Jade isn’t a man magnet or something, even though she thinks she is.”
Before Alison could answer Casey came into the kitchen to tell Luke he and Jade were leaving.
“You two really did a number on each other.. it was kind of hot.” He told Alison who just rolled her eyes.
“I’ll walk you out.” Luke said and gave Alison a you better still be here when I come back – look.
After Luke had said goodnight to most of the guests he went back to the kitchen after quickly checking the living room for Noah.
Noah and Aaron were sitting on the sofa together, both with a beer in hand, talking about something or other.
Luke smiled at the sight and thanked his lucky stars again his family loved his boyfriend so much.
When he walked back into the kitchen he saw Alison sitting at the table with an almost empty bottle of Vodka next to her.
“How much of that have you had?” he asked her as he took the bottle away.
“Nowhere near enough.” Alison replied sadly.
Luke cleaned her face up as much as he could with just a towel and some warm water and made some coffee to help her sober up a bit.
At some point the music coming from the living room had stopped and the familiar sounds of Noah’s voice and the TV reached the kitchen. Luke smiled when he recognised Noah’s comments and realised he was making Aaron watch one of his favourite films.
“Can you get home by yourself or do you want me to call you a taxi?”
“Taxi please.” Alison mumbled and Luke flipped open his phone to dial the number.
He sat with her for a while and tried to keep her from falling asleep in his and Noah’s kitchen.
When the doorbell rang Luke walked Alison to the taxi and paid the driver and told him to make sure she got inside safely.
It was way after midnight and the streets were dark and deserted and Luke felt very uncomfortable.
“Damn twins.” he cursed under his breath and went back inside.
He’d taken the stairs instead of the lift, for reasons he didn’t want to admit to himself so when he walked back inside the apartment again he was slightly out of breath. He leaned against the closed front door for a few minutes before walking into the living room.
When he finally did he saw something he’d never ever expected to see. On the sofa, Noah and Aaron were fast asleep in each other’s arms.
He looked at the two sleeping men for a few minutes and smiled. They looked adorable like that.
He took his phone out of his pocket and took a photo before walking over to the sofa.
“Noah..Noah, wake up.” He said but Noah just groaned and tightened his grip on Aaron.
“Noah.. come on baby, you have to wake up now.”
No change in the situation. Luke sighed. He was tired and wanted to go to sleep but not without his boyfriend.
He gently slapped Noah’s face and kept talking to him. But instead of waking up his boyfriend he woke his brother up.
“Are you after my boyfriend now bro?” Luke teased.
“What? What are you talking about?” Aaron slurred, still somewhat drunk.
Luke didn’t say anything just waited until Aaron would realise what he meant.
“What the ****?! Noah wake up man!” Aaron said and roughly pushed Noah away from him and jumped up from the sofa.
Noah slowly woke up to the sound of Luke’s laughter and smiled to himself.
“Did we fall asleep?” He asked when it started to dawn on him what was going on.
“Yeah you did. You two looked adorable together.” Luke teased while Aaron searched the apartment for his jacket and keys.
“Aaron, I hid your car keys hours ago, you can either walk home or sleep on our sofa.” Luke told his brother.
“I don’t want to hear you two at it all night. I’ll walk.” Aaron said determined and walked out of the apartment.
Luke chuckled and turned his attention back to his snoozing boyfriend.
“Are you coming to bed baby? I don’t want sleep alone anymore, I need you.” he said softly and kissed Noah.
Noah slowly opened his eyes and let Luke lead him to the bedroom.
A few minutes later they were in bed together, both of them almost asleep.
“Did you have a good time tonight?” Noah asked softly.
“It was ok. I don’t really care about the party.. I only care about you. I’m so glad you’re here with me.” Luke said and placed a kiss on his boyfriend’s bare chest.
Noah smiled and kissed the top of Luke’s head.
“You better get used to having me around because I don’t plan on ever leaving you again.”
