‘I like you, why, what’s wrong with you, didn’t you enjoy it?’
‘You like me, you don’t even know me!’ ‘You’re weird’
These were red rag words to a bull.
‘Young ladies like you who call people like me weird have to be taught a lesson.’
‘STOP.’ in a strange way Alanna didn’t want him to.
‘Who were those you were with last night?’ he said
‘Is that going to make a difference,’ she said
‘You knew what you were getting into don’t play dumb Alannah.’
Hearing him say her name made her blood stop.
Alannah looked in the mirror behind him, his pimply back…his muscles tight in his skin…..she did know what she was getting into-now it feels different..
‘Why didn’t you say anything before?’ this time Alannah feels the pitch in her voice rise.
‘Because I know how it goes, I’m a man remember, I’ve an old head on a young body’ running his hands through her hair as he said it. Pulling hard.
He liked the feel of her angst against him.
‘And YOU are going to obey young LADY !’
