Chapter 7: Short visit from the parents
I teared up as he pulled out of me. As he did, I noticed a lot of blood on the condom. He looked down at himself and then to me. "I'm sorry." He said.
I didn't respond.
He got off of the bed and pulled the condom off.
Then he grabbed his towel as someone banged hard on the door again.
He wrapped it around himself and then opened the door. He cracked it open a little.
"Oh! Alan!" A woman hugged him hard.
He seemed reluctant towards it. "Can you give me a minute?" He asked.
"Of course. Frank is downstairs too."
"Oh I'm sure he is." AJ said with disinterest.
Then he shut the door and sighed. He looked back over to me. I looked back at him.
"My parents are here." He said.
"Get dressed." He said as he threw his towel off of him.
I was too sore to even get up. I was in a lot of pain. I didn't think it was going to hurt that much.
"I don't have clothes." I said.
AJ went to a wall and looked at me as he pressed his fingers against it. It pushed back revealing a small open space.
I sat up, not caring about the blood I was getting on his bed.
When he came out, he brought out a big t-shirt. He threw it to me and I put it on my body happy to finally not be exposed.
He slid on a pair of jeans, some socks, and a black long sleeved t-shirt for him. "Come on." He said and grabbed my hand. I followed him out of the room and he squeezed my hand as he brought me down the stairs and into the living room.
There was a blonde woman sitting on the couch. She had silky short hair, blue eyes and a bright smile. She had on beige and brown clothes that hugged her body. They looked expensive.
And next to her was a man with dark brown hair and a business suit on.
He looked disinterested.
But his mom lit up at the sight of AJ. Like he was god. Like she worshipped everything about him. "Alan." She got up and smiled as she hugged him tightly despite him holding me close to his body. Then she looked to me. "Is this your girlfriend?" she asked.
AJ hesitated but then slowly nodded. "Yes. Renee is my girlfriend."
She smiled. "Renee." She said softly.
"Hi." I said blushing. I was shy around new people.
"Oh you are gorgeous…and…half naked." She said observing my clothing.
"Yes, we were in the middle of something." AJ said.
She nodded. "That can wait, dear." Then she looked backed to me. "I'm his mother, Sharon. And over there is my third husband, Frank."
I waved at him and he gave me a disinterested nod.
"Is that your dad?" I asked him.
He shook his head. "An asshole trying to replace my 'so called' dad."
Frank looked over to AJ. "I never tried to replace your dad, boy. I don't even know why you call him that."
"You're right. You got everything figured out." AJ said.
"When it comes to your deadbeat dad, I do. I knew him since he was a teenager. And he was lucky to get Sharon, then he left your mother like she was nothing."
"Okay, Frank. His girl is right here. Calm down." Sharon said looking at him.
He held his hands up as if surrendering.
Sharon sighed and then looked at me. "So how'd you two meet?"
Me and AJ looked at each other.
I cleared my throat and looked down at the floor.
"I met her earlier at a club, a week ago."
"A club? She doesn't look a day over fifteen. Honey, how old are you?"
"Seventeen." I answered.
"You look very young. Hopefully I can get some grandchildren soon."
I bit down hard on my lip at mention of the word.
AJ sighed and I looked up at him.
"Stop." He mouthed.
And I stopped biting my lip.
"Let me go make some tea." She quickly forced us to follow her into the kitchen. AJ tagged me along and had me sit on a barstool in the kitchen.
He sat next to me, keeping his eyes on his mom.
He sighed and ran his fingers through his hair. "Mom, why are you here?" He asked as if knowing she was here for just more than a visit.
She stopped and turned to him and sighed. "You got me."
"What is it?" He asked.
She leaned against the sink and sighed. "Your brother." At the mention of his brother, my head snapped to her. His brother that has Jodie?
"Which one?" He asked.
He has more than one?
"Shane." She answered.
AJ sighed. I wanted to ask but he looked at me and shook his head. "Not the one you think."
I nodded although it didn't make me feel any better.
"He's coming down for a visit."
"I thought that son of a bitch lived in Illinois. Why the hell would he want to come down here?"
"Go easy on him, Alan."
"Why should I?"
"He lost his wife, Haley."
"Yeah well that's on him. He was always crazy. I'm not surprised."
"Can you just treat him like he's your brother for once?"
AJ shook his head. "Mom, Shane ran away from home when he was thirteen years old. He got a job, became rich and didn't give us a damn dime. Treated us like we didn't exist."
"He did it because he was really close to your dad, Alan. And when he left, it killed me."
"I'm sure it did."
"When your dad left, it messed us all up."
"Yeah, I know."
"I just want us to be happy again. I'm having a Barbecue on-"
"Stop right there, mom."
Sharon sighed in irritation. "Come on, you never come down for family events and I want to introduce your girlfriend to the family, It will be fun, Alan."
"If you come down for the barbecue, you won't have to come for Christmas. I'll just send your gifts if you want."
AJ sighed and then looked to me and then back to his mom. "Fine. Excuse me, I need to talk to Renee for a second." He forced me out of my stool and pulled me into the hallway. He pressed me against the wall. "I'm taking you to this barbecue whenever the hell she has it but you will not try to escape. Understand?"
I nodded and swallowed hard.
He nodded too. "Good girl." He whispered and then leaned down to kiss me. He took my bottom lip between his teeth and bit down on it.
I moaned as his hand caressed my thigh and my inner thigh, keeping me aroused.
"Be good. Say nothing." He said and I nodded.
He was about to walk back into the kitchen until he turned. "Don't bite your lip. You know what it does to me." Then after smirking, he walked back into the kitchen.
I stayed in the hallway and pull down the shirt more and swallowed. He can't just do that. Do that to me and just walk away.
And what was the big deal with his brother, Shane? It's not like he kidnaps girls too.
I walked back into the kitchen.
"When's the barbecue?" AJ asked.
"Next week on Sunday."
He nodded. "Me and Renee will be there."
"When's Shane coming?"
Sharon nodded. "You like milk in your tea?" She asked changing the subject.
"Fuck the tea. Why is he coming so soon?"
"I don't know. He just told me he wanted to see you and his other brother."
"Fine. Morning or night?"
"Morning I think."
"Fan-fucking-tastic." He nodded.
Sharon sighed. "Well I guess that you don't want tea."
"I don't. I actually would like to be alone with Renee."
Sharon nodded. "I get it. Fine. Get back to your little…whatever." Then she looked to me. "I look forward to seeing you again, Renee." She whispered.
Sharon smiled and looked to AJ. "Me and Frank can let ourselves out." Then her heels clicked as she walked out of the kitchen.
AJ looked to me and sighed.
"You okay?" I asked.
"Now you see why I don't really mess with my family. That's the reason right there. They always expect something from me."
"They just wanna see you."
"But Shane is coming here." He said in disgust.
"What's wrong with him?"
"He's worst than me. Just watch."
"He's a dick, Renee and he will try to flirt with you and get you to…" He sighed and shook his head. "Nevermind." He said and then got off the stool. "That visit seriously ruined my whole night. I don't even…." He looked down for a second. "Do you want to go to bed?" He asked.
I nodded without hesitation.
But a part of me, very small part wanted us to finish. I was basically not a virgin anymore. He broke through me.
AJ grabbed my hand and pulled me out of my seat. He led me back upstairs and to the bedroom. He shut the door. There was a small red puddle of blood in the middle. But the bed was huge so we could easily sleep on four other sides and be far from the stain.
AJ sighed and he took his clothes back off and pulled me to him as he took my shirt off. He pulled the comforter off. Thank god the bloody stain didn't seep through. He put the comforter on the floor and then looked to me.
"Bed." He ordered and I got onto the bed and waited for him. He got in with me and laid down beside me.
I was laying on my side away from him. I felt…I don't know. Kind of sore even though nothing really happened.
AJ pulled me to him and breathed in my hair.
It felt comforting. Hearing him breathe. It made me fall asleep that night because nothing else would have.
