A Story written by Kevin_88…
I shook Rita for about a minute before she finally began to gather herself and we all dried off and got dressed, the smile never leaving Rita’s face, not even when mom stared her down. We took another look at the beach and followed mom and Aunt Lisa the way back to the car, which we found much easier to navigate the second time around. We got to the car to hear mom’s phone ringing, and by the ringtone, once again it was dad.
“We decided to go for a drive, didn’t wanna be cooped up in the house all day. We left your plate in the microwave.”
“How long you been home?”
“And you wait until you eat your food before you call us? You horrible man.”
“Were on our way now, we should be back in no time.”
“Ok see you in a little bit honey, love you.” (Click)
“Turns out your father came home a half hour early, good thing we left the house,” mom said.
“We would’ve been long done by the time dad got home, three times,” Rita grinned.
“Yeah well in any case, you two are gonna pay for that little stunt.”
“Doesn’t feel good to get a taste of your own medicine huh? Oh that reminds me, I have only one more thing to do before our day is over.”
“Mom groaned. “Do I even wanna hear this?”
Rita grabbed my hand. “I want one day for us to be with each other, no parents, no Aunt, no obstacles, nothing, just me and Randy.”
Mom looked at Aunt Lisa and smiled, then looked back at us. “I don’t know how were gonna get your father out of the house, but its something I can live with.”
Rita squeezed my arm as we got in the car and drove home in silence, the days events I’m sure running through everyone’s head. We got home and walked into the house to see dad on the couch in his boxers watching some vampire show.
“Having fun honey,” mom laughed.
“This is what happens when I come home to an unexpected empty house, pants come off, crappy shows get watched, and when the family gets home, they get to soak it all in.”
“And that we are. Well were all pretty tired so were gonna take quick showers and head to bed. Goodnight everyone, see you in the morning,” mom said taking the stairs, dad behind her.
“Yeah goodnight you two, and please, be quiet, and lock the door,” Aunt Lisa whispered as she took the stairs behind them.
“We can’t shower together with dad here, so I’ll take the downstairs, you the upstairs, and I’ll meet you in the bed?” I asked.
Her response was to kiss me full on in the openness of the living room, for anyone in the house to see, but like her, at that moment, I didn’t care. She headed upstairs to the shower and I went downstairs to mine, making quick work of it again because I didn’t wanna be down there longer than I needed to, but moreso because I wanted to get back to Rita. In my haste to get through the shower I didn’t take a towel with me, so I wrapped my clothes around me and carefully snuck into our room, where Rita was already in bed waiting.
“Funny. Next time you can take the downstairs shower,” I said pulling on some boxers.
I cut off the light and climbed into the bed with her, and she immediately cuddled up into me, laying her head right under my chin in my chest.
“You think we’ll be able to get a day to ourselves?” I asked.
“I hope so. We don’t get to spend much time alone, without having to be brother and sister. I just wanna be with you out in the open, with no restrictions, I don’t think its too much to ask.”
“Its definitely not too much to ask, if they don’t make it happen, then I will.”
“And that right there Randy is why I’ll never let another man touch me.”
I kissed her on the cheek. “Anything to make my baby happy.” A little cheezy, but yeah, so what, its how I felt. If you’re not willing to get a little cheezy, then you’re not in love.
She sighed and cuddled into me closer, kissing me softly on the lips. “Love you.”
“Love you too.”
I looked at the clock, 12:11, officially the next day. I closed my eyes, wondering how long it would take before we would have our day, a day with noone in our way, nothing to worry about, just us, as it should be, as it will be. I slowly drifted to a peaceful sleep. That’s a day I’m looking forward to…
