“I’m glad you’re on my team.” Henry smiled at me as we stood at the end of the field panting.
“Me too.” I smiled and took a deep breath. My heart was racing from all the running and I just wanted to collapse onto the ground.
“The other team seems to be way too serious.” He laughed and we watched as Aiden and Xander kept throwing the ball back and forth.
“I don’t know how Aiden and Xander wound up on the same team.” I laughed. “It almost seems unfair. Though, I’m glad because that means I’m not paired with either of them.”
“Poor Liv.” Henry grinned and we watched as she kept yelling at the two men to pass her the ball.
“I know.” I laughed. “Do you think we should run down there and try and grab the flags?”
“Nah, not yet.” He shook his head. “Seems like you still need to catch your breath.”
“Yeah.” I nodded, not feeling embarrassed that he’d noticed what bad shape I was in. “I guess that’s what I get for working in an office.”
“What do you do?” He asked curiously.
“Nothing fun.” I laughed. “I’m an assistant, secretary, receptionist for a real estate company.” I made a face. “It’s boring, but it pays the bills until I can do what I want to do.”
“What do you want to do?”
“I’d love to be an actress.” I smiled at him. “Isn’t that what everyone says that works as an assistant?”
“No, I think that’s what barista’s normally say.”
“True.” I agreed and sighed. “Okay, that was a bit of a lie. I don’t really want to be an actress.”
“Oh?” He looked confused. “That’s a weird lie.”
“I know.” I shook my head. “I’m an idiot. It just sounded more glorious than what I really want to do.”
“What’s that then?” He scratched his forehead. “Let me guess.”
“Okay then, guess.” I smiled.
“You want to a preservationist and preserve insects?”
“Eww, no.” I giggled.
“Okay, let me guess again.” He pursed his lips and looked thoughtful, his green eyes alive with humor as he gazed at me. “You want to model lingerie at Victoria’s Secret?”
“No!” I said emphatically and he laughed.
“A man can hope.” He winked at me and I could feel myself blushing. Was he flirting with me?
“That’s never going to happen. That would be my worst nightmare.”
“What would be your worst nightmare?” Liv came running towards me, her face a deep red and her eyes looking crazy and wild from all the exercise.
“Me being a lingerie model.”
“What?” She stopped dead and started laughing. “Who’s gone and offered you that job then?”
“No one offered me that job.” I shook my head and rolled my eyes. “Henry was just saying that—”
“Liv.” Aiden ran up to us and shouted at his sister. “Stop bloody talking.” He glared at her and blew his whistle. “Everyone stop!”
“What’s up with the whistle?” Liv looked confused as all the players came to a halt. “What’s going on?”
“That’s what I want to know?” Aiden frowned and gazed at me for a second before looking away. “Alice and Henry aren’t doing anything and now you’re just standing there talking as well. Are you guys sure you want to be a part of these games?”
“I was playing.” Liv shouted. “I just stopped because Alice was telling me about her offer to be a lingerie model.”
“I didn’t say I was offered that job.” I groaned.
“I think there has been some confusion.” Henry spoke up. “Alice hasn’t been offered that as a job yet, it’s just her dream job to be a lingerie model at Victoria’s Secret.”
“No, it’s not.” I screeched and looked at Aiden beseechingly. “Henry asked me if I wanted to model lingerie and I said no.”
“I don’t care what the two of you talk about.” Aiden’s eyes narrowed as he gazed at me and shook his head. “Save your personal talk for after the game is done.”
“I, ugh.” I closed my mouth in frustration. “I am playing. I was just trying to catch my breath because I was feeling a little tired from all the running back and forth.”
“Maybe you can take her to your gym and help her work out.” Liv suggested. “What do you say, Aiden?”
“I guess.” He frowned and my heart thudded at the thought of some one-on-one time with Aiden.
“You can come to my gym if you want.” Henry grinned at me. “I make a great personal trainer.”
“Oh, thanks.” I looked at him with wide eyes. This wasn’t part of the plan. I’d thought that Henry was just being nice to me, but now I wasn’t so sure. Was he flirting with me, for real?
“I think it would be fun.” He winked at me. “Plus then we can finish this conversation without having a whistle blown at us.”
“Finish what conversation?” Aiden’s eyes narrowed and he took a step towards us.
“Alice was telling me what she wants to be when she grows up.” Henry smiled, not seeming to be aware of the fact that Aiden wasn’t looking very happy.
“She wants to be a casting agent for reality show TV stars.” Aiden glanced at me as he spoke. “Though, it kills me to call anyone that goes on a reality TV show a star.”
“How did you know that?” I asked him in surprise.
“How could I not know that?” He shrugged. “You’ve mentioned it a billion times.”
“I didn’t know you ever bothered listening to me.” I said softly.
“I always listen to you, Alice.” He said, his eyes boring into mine intensely. However, I couldn’t figure out what his gaze was telling me. Did he listen to me because he liked me or because I just talked too much.
“So that’s why you said actress?” Henry put his arm around my shoulder and I wanted to groan out-loud as Aiden pursed his lips and took a step back. I could see Liv’s eyes gleaming at me with joy and excitement. She seemed to be the only one loving this little chat.
“Yeah, actress seemed a more dignified answer than casting for The Bachelor.” I smiled at him, my face reddening as he rubbed the top of my shoulders innocently. Or at least, I thought he was rubbing them innocently.
“I don’t know.” He laughed. “Both seem to be pretty naughty professions.”
“Naughty?” I looked at him with a curious expression. “Why naughty.”
“Are you two ready to play?” Xander interrupted this time, his green eyes looking at me with disapproval.
“I’ve been ready.” I said in reply. “It wasn’t me that stopped the game, it was Aiden.”
“Yeah, Xander. It was Aiden that blew his whistle, like some sort of trumped up referee.” Liv glared at Xander. “This is just meant to be a friendly game. This isn’t the NFL.”
“They don’t play flag football in the NFL.” Xander replied to her with an amused smile.
“Exactly.” She said with an annoyed expression. “This isn’t the NFL.”
“Liv, if you and Alice don’t want to play flag football then you can both just leave.” Aiden spoke up this time and my heart stopped. “When we’re playing the game, we should be playing the game. We aren’t here to hear about your sex lives or the sexy lingerie you’re buying. Or how much you need to work out because you can’t keep up with the rest of us.”
I gasped at his words and my mouth fell open. My face was hot with humiliation and I glared at his smug and superior expression. Was he calling me a fat ass?
“Aiden, you’re such a pompous jerk.” Liv just shook her head and then looked at Xander. “And you’re an asshole.”
“I’m an asshole?” He put his hands up in the air. “I didn’t even say anything.”
“Exactly. How could you let Aiden speak to us like that?”
“What?” Xander sounded frustrated and I was about to cut in and say something when Henry cleared his throat loudly.
“Look guys, this is my fault.” He said smoothly. “I was the one talking to Alice and monopolizing her time. I won’t do it on the field anymore. I’ll just wait until we go out for drinks later.”
“Whatever.” Aiden said and then blew his whistle again. “If everyone is ready to begin playing again, maybe we can get back to the game.”
“We were playing the game before you stopped us Aiden.” Liv said loudly. “I think we’re all ready to get back to something other than you trying to boss us around.”
“Grow up, Liv.” Aiden rolled his eyes. “I thought you’d start acting your age now that you have a boyfriend.”
“Excuse me?” Liv walked over to him and I watched as Xander grabbed her around the waist and pulled her towards him and whispered something in her eye. She turned to me then and gave me an exasperated look as if to say, why do you want to date my brother again? He’s a big old jerk.
And then, because the day was going so perfectly already, my luck got even better. “I’m here folks.” A loud boyish voice echoed across the field and we all turned to watch as Scott came running towards us, a huge grin on his handsome face. My stomach flipped anxiously as he ran directly towards me. This was the last thing that I needed. I was meant to be making Aiden jealous and antsy with random guys, not his sister’s boyfriend’s rich brother or his own brother. I could still remember the night that Aiden had spotted Scott kissing me and I wanted to scream out in frustration. Why was this happening to me? Why was it that the guys I didn’t want to be paying attention to me were circling around me like crows.
“Hey, Alice.” Scott stopped right next to me and gave me a kiss on the cheek. “Fancy seeing you here.”
“Hey.” I said weakly and I gazed at Aiden quickly. He was staring at me with a closed expression on his face and I offered him a small smile, which he didn’t return.
“I heard you were going to be playing so I—”
“Eeeep.” Aiden blew his whistle loudly and interrupted Scott. “Scott, you can be on Alice’s team. And you guys can talk later. At the bar.” He looked at me then and smirked slightly. “Just remember to take a number though, as Henry’s already got his ticket ready to talk to her first.” And with that he blew his whistle again and turned around. I could tell that everyone on the field, asides from Liv, Xander and I, was confused about what was going on. All I could think about was getting back at Aiden for being such a prickhead. I was going to pay, once I got him into my bed, of course. I thought back to what Xander had said about Aiden being a Dom and I knew then exactly what I was going to try and do. I was going to make Aiden think I wanted to submit to him, but instead of letting him dominate me, I was going to tease him until he begged me to stop. Only then would I be able to wipe that smug little smirk from his way too handsome face.
