figuring it out

"Huh?" Rex was kind of baffled. He checked his messages. Nothing from..what was her name, he winced. "Oh yeah," He chuckled, under his breath. Kelsey.

She was haute, as he recalled. He had to think about this, why he did he do what he did with her in the first place?

1. she was available.
2. she was his brother's ex.
3. vulnerable.

Not that he totally enjoyed the last thing so much, but hey, it worked for her. He grinned about it now.

Yeah, he was a bit of dick to her now. He was older. She was just 17. Right?

Well, he wasn't thinking to much about that or her. It was Christmas when it happened. God, he was bored out of his skull, then. He was fucking bored right now too. In his room, at the frat-house where he lived. Honestly, he had no time for a job. He was still in lala-land when it came to having a real job. He hadn't graduated yet, but he was networking. He'd get something. He wasn't worried about it.

Really, he wasn't worried about much of anything. But then he dug in his wallet. Maybe he was checking to see if he had any condoms. Then he saw her picture. It was a picture of Lisa. And he forgot everything else.

He choked back the need to cry then. It was as if suddenly his throat was raw, and he felt so sad. He saw the number on the back of it. It was her new phone number. He'd chatted up Ellie's mother for it. Put on his sweet charm the last time he was home, when he accidentally saw her in the grocery store. It was then that he thought he was going to pass out when he found out Ellie was married.

"Are you kidding me?" He just bet she had too. Why else would she? Naturally, her mother was none to happy about it. Rex did his best not to joke about it. He then asked about Lisa. And wow, her Mom told him everything he wanted to hear. Her mom said Lisa was on the brink of a divorce. Imagine that?

He'd been thinking about calling her ever since. But he hadn't. Something was always coming up every weekend with the guys. Rex sighed then. He was going to just have to go and see her. Actually, she lived about an hour away. Yeah, he was going to do that. Rex would just call Ellie and Lisa's Mom and find out her address. Fuck Kelsey, he thought. He didn't care what was up with her.

The classic bad boy - it's always hard to resist them regardless of whatever issues may be plaguing them. :/
