AJ woke up the next morning to find Nick shaking him.
“Dude, wake up. Get up now. What they hell were you thinking?”
AJ’s head was pounding and he had no idea what Nick was talking about. His throat felt like it was on fire so he had trouble answering him.
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“I thought this whole shit was over man!”
“What shit?” AJ said trying to sit up.
“What about her?”
“Think dude. Think hard.”
AJ was wracking his brain, trying to figure out what Nick was talking about.
“She was leaving as I was pulling in.”
AJ shook his head. “What are you talking about? She wasn’t……………..” All of a sudden, reality broke through AJ’s brain. He remembered Michelle coming over and then he remembered not feeling well.
“Please tell me you didn’t sleep with her.”
AJ felt like he wanted to throw up at the thought of it.
“Nick, I swear, I don’t remember anything.”
“You had better figure something out by the time the girls get back.”
As if it happened on command, Kat walked into the house followed by Denise.
“What are you guys doing here?” Kat asked. “You weren’t supposed to be home……”
She stopped talking as soon as she saw AJ and Nick’s faces. AJ was half sitting and half lying on the couch. He looked like he had seen a ghost.
“I think I’m gonna be sick!” AJ jumped off the couch and ran into the bathroom.
Kat took off down the hall after AJ and Denise walked over to where Nick was sitting.
“What happened Nick? And don’t leave anything out!”
