Fast forward to this night and Maxie was again scheduled to sleep over at my place (we had different dorms). But as you will see it didn't work out the way I had hoped.

"MMMMMMMM my sexy ass girlfriend" I cooed as I watched Maxie come out of the bathroom following her shower in nothing but her birthday suit. "Come back to bed for a while."

"God you can't get enough" Maxie said as she slipped into some panties. "Nooo."

"Why not?" I asked in frustration. "We don't have school today, it's the weekend. What better way to spend the day than making love?"

"I'm not a whore, once is enough for me" Maxie said.

"Because I like sex that makes me a whore?" I asked as Maxie grinned and nodded, but this time I didn't take it as another of her poorly written jokes. She quickly realized this and started to apologize when I stopped her.

"Save it" I said with a hand in the air. "You don't wanna be with me then leave and don't come back."

"You don't mean that Cal, you know that" She said as I picked up her bag and shoved it into her arms.

"Get out" I said firmly as she rolled her eyes. "We're through Max, I'm tired of your shit."

"And you think I'm not tired of yours?" She asked as we glared at each other. "I'm sorry I can't satisfy you."

"You could if you tried" I said softly. "But you're too screwed up to realize that trying is your problem."

"Whoa, let's take a look at who's talking about being screwed up" Maxie said as she fired her bag to the floor. "You couldn't tell your Dad you're gay without losing it and what is it you're forever scared about? Why I think it's your homophobe best friend (Alisha Swain) dropping the dime on you to all of your old friends back home. Weak."

"You wanna call and tell them?" I asked in a show of defiance and picking up my phone. "My address book is in the closet. Call them."

"I don't wanna tell them that" Maxie said as she took the phone and laid it down. "I want you to stop putting pressure on me to have sex with you."

"Fine!" I said as I turned and walked into the bathroom and sat down on the edge of the tub and started to cry into my hands. I heard Maxie leave a few minutes after that.

"Maybe I'm the one that screwed up" I said to myself and wondered when wanting to be with your girlfriend that way made you such a bad person. But in the end it wasn't even about me it was a lot more about Maxie and her apparent non-desire to be with me. Even when we did have sex it wasn't all that good or satisfying. She forever left me wanting just that extra bit to finish me off.

You're probably wondering exactly how a 14 year old girl knows so much about sex. Well back home I had a little experience with a girl and let me just say that she never left me filling the way Maxie does. We'd do it over and over again until neither of us could move a muscle. Then rest..and do it again. I miss her.

"COMING!" I said as I dropped the towel that I'd been using to dry my hair after my shower into the laundry hamper. Opening the door my heart almost stopped when I saw Mindy with a pillow and blanket in her arms and smiling. "Hey come on in."

"You sure you don't mind me spending the night?" She asked. "I can go back to mine and Cindy's room."

"Is Cindy gone?" I asked. Thinking she was probably already gone with the softball team for their road game.

"Yeah she left early" Mindy said. "She's so excited about playing softball."

"Yeah I know" I said as Mindy still stood in the doorway with her pillow and blanket. "You coming in?"

"Oh...yeah" She said with a huge smile as she practically bounced over to the couch and dropped her stuff. "You sure?"

"Yeah positive" I said as I met her by the back of the couch and stroked my finger down her chin as she grinned at me. "You are welcome here, any...time."

"Yeah you say that now but you haven't heard me snore" Mindy said as I laughed and she smiled. "No one ever laughs at my jokes, WOW. Go me!"

"OK then go" I said as she blushed and pushed me playfully. "And don't come back."

"GRRRRRRR" She said as she formed her hands into 'claws' and growled at me. I smiled as I kissed and she went from growling to purring like a kitten. "MMMMMMMM me likey dat better."

"Me too" I said as she kissed me again.

"We can do this all you want" She said as I giggled. "That is if you really like me."

"What do you mean, of course I do."

"No I mean really like like me" She said and growing a little nervous it looked to me. "Like I'm the only one?"

"Who else would there be?"

"Cally...I dunno" She said as she looked down. I simply took her hand and laced her fingers with mine and led her to the couch as she sat down beside me.

"Cally is not my type" I finally said as she smiled. "You are."

"Promise?" She asked as I leaned in and kissed her.

"I swear on my heart" I said as she blushed and smiled. "I like you more than you know."

"Me too" She said. Then in the same sentence saying something that me gave a moment of pause. "Cindy thinks I'm moving to fast with you."


"She thinks I'm dumb and you'll take advantage of me" Mindy said.

"She kind of threatened me over you too" I said as she groaned and sighed. "Said if I ever hurt you she'd hurt me."

"I hate her sometimes."

"She's your sister, she's just a tad over protective."

"Ya think?" Mindy asked as I laughed.

"Yes I do think, and on a regular basis, do you?" I asked as she giggled.

"Yeah I do" She said as if it were a silly question. "If you don't stop picking on me I'm gonna...I'm gonna..."

"You're gonna what?" I asked as I leaned closer and she giggled as she tried to scoot away. Squealing in laughter when I sunk my fingers into her thigh muscle just above her knee, her tickle spot galore. She escaped to the other end of the couch and pointed a finger at me with a smile and said, "I told you I was ticklish."

"I know that ha ha ha" I said as I tried to do it again and she squealed again and pushed my hand away.

"I'm gonna pee stop please?" She asked as I shrugged and stood. Walking into the kitchen as she watched me. "Did I make you mad?"

"Not at all, why?" I asked as I got two soda's out of my small fridge and showed her one as she smiled and nodded. Handing it to her as she gladly took it. "Why would I be mad?"

"No reason" She chirped as she jumped off the sofa and to her feet and kissed me. "Thanks for the soda."

"Of course" I said with a smile. "Wanna play some XBOX before bed?"

"What games you got?"

"I dunno most of them Cally gave me" I said as Mindy gave me a weird look. "She felt sorry for me."


"My parents aren't exactly rich" I said. "They work every day and still struggle. Some months things are pretty tight back home."

"It's not fair" Mindy said softly. "Good people shouldn't have to work so hard and get nothing in return."

"My Dad's been at the same factory for 32 years now" I said as Mindy listened and we sat down on the couch again. The game of XBOX slipping out of both of our minds as we got lost in conversation. "He's does some kind of work with steel, not sure what."

"What does your Mom do?" Mindy asked.

"Works at a Doctor's office as a receptionist" I said.

"Ever do drugs?" She asked.

"Nope, you?"

"Drugs no, but drank one time and it made me sick" Mindy said as I smiled. Feeling in that moment that literally every new thing I learned about her made me like her more and more. So sweet and just so many things I can't even describe in this moment.

Well, Maxie, didn't come back the night of the fight nor the several nights following that and I'm pretty sure it's over between me and her. She's avoiding me at school and if that's the way she wants it...fine with me. Not like I care...OK, we both know I do but she is just sooo...frustrating. And it's not all about sex it's much more about the things she won't do or even consider doing. Like kissing (she kinda does suck at it), cuddling (won't even consider it), holding hands in public (Why let everyone know we're dykes?!). She makes me wanna punch her brains in and on occasion I've come close to doing that.

"Tonight will be a nice change" I said to myself as I got up to answer the door. Being shocked when I saw of all people in the world...Cindy. Who'd been gone for like three days now at a tournament with the school's softball team. "Hey girl, you back already?"

"We won" She said in a daze as she showed me her team's trophy. "We won the whole tournament."

"That's sooo great" I said and hugging her impulsively as she stood stiff and gave me a weird look. "What?"

"Nothing I just don' know...hug a lot" She said as I nodded and figured in that moment that she might have been a whole lot straighter than I assumed originally. "I'm sorry it's not you. It's me."

"You know if you let down your guard once in a while you'll find that people like Cindy Sullivan" I said as she half smiled. "The night you hung out with me and Max was fun."

"Yeah I was kinda lonely that night and with Mindy being with Dakota daylight to dark it's..." Cindy said and trailing off as I swear she began to cry and quickly wiped a tear from her eye. She sniffed and went on. "Mindy's with Dakota tonight, again, and I just wanted someone to celebrate with."

"Good, cause Maxie is being a cunt and I could use someone to hang out with" I said as she half-smiled. "As for that no friends thing you got going on?"

"Yeah?" She asked with a stiff worried look.

"Consider that over" I said with a push as she sat her trophy down and glared at me but with a tint to her smile that made me think she liked it. "We're in this together from now on."

"In what?"

"The drug business blondy" I said as she groaned as I flicked her hair in her face. Girl is cute when she blushes. "The business of being friends, DUH!"

"We're really friends?" She asked as I nodded.

"Good and don't call me blondy anymore" She said with a finger point as I giggled. "Stop laughing or you'll pay for that!"

"What you gonna do beat up your only friend?" I asked as Cindy gave me a determined smile and moments later did something no one had ever done before, she literally picked me up across her shoulder and dumped me on the bed and gave me a smile that was meant to say, "Top that!"

"Oh so you wanna play rough?" I asked as she nodded. Prompting me to snatch her by the arm and drag onto the bed as a wrestling match started. Filled with each other screaming names like: "Whore!", "Slut!" and at one point "You double crossing blond skank."

We wrestled that night until we were both exhausted, covered in sweat and unable to move pretty much. Cindy lay there for a long time looking at me after that and just smiled. Not an 'I'm in love' with you smile just one of...awe? We became best of friends that night, she was now my 'wing man', so to speak, and for the rest of the year she was there for me every time I needed her. She also slept over that night. She's holla! cute when she sleeps.
