Luna wasn't happy to see Alex. It was their first meeting since the night of the party. She hadn't forgiven him for telling Michael her secret. Alex stood in the doorway, wet from rain. She stormed out of the room.
Alex hung his coat then followed after. He didn't reach her in time and she locked him out of her room. He tested the knob then kicked the door.
"Luna, let me in!" he hollered.
Alex didn't expect her to comply but she freed the lock. Her room was a mess. She jumped on the bed then laid on her belly. Her dress barely covered her backside. It made him uncomfortable.
"Let's go talk in the other room," he said. She flippped him off then turned over to lay on her back.
"Nice," he commented, "Very lady-like. I'll be in the other room." Alex left her alone but she couldn't stay away. She returned to the front room and he was sitting on the sofa.
"That was quick," he noted and asked her to sit.
Luna stood. She rocked on her feet then asked him a question.
"Why did you kiss me?" ...The night of the party?"
"It was a mistake," he replied.
That was the last answer she wanted to hear. She paused to take it in then left. Alex grumbled and walked back down the hall. He stood outside her room and talked through the door.
"Luna, I'm sorry. Okay? I saw Asa spying on us through the trees. I couldn't help it. I wanted to piss him off but I didn't think it through. I'm sorry but it was a mistake."
She whipped the door open and yelled, "That whole night was your fault! You should've listened to me!" She tried to slam the door but his foot got in the way.
Luna went back inside and picked up a high heel. She cocked it behind her head then took aim.
"Stop right there!" he ordered.
Luna relaxed for a moment then hurled the shoe. It hit him hard so he chased her. She made it to the opposite side of the bed.
"Go away!"she said.
"No. Calm down and let's talk," he replied.
"No. Get out of my room. I'm going to bed." Luna started to unzip the back of her dress.
"Knock it off!" he said. Alex didn't believe she would really disrobe.
Luna pulled her arms from the sleeves then let the dress fall to the floor.
"Cut it out!" he said pitching her a blanket. She avoided it then unhooked her bra. Alex turned away but still caught an eyeful.
"What is wrong with you," he scolded, "I just want to talk."
"Get out!" she yelled.
Luna was determined to make him leave. She ripped off her underwear then got close enough to throw them. Much to her delight they landed on his shoulder. They sat there until he realized it then swiped them off. He looked down at the floor then back at her.
Luna stood naked with her hands on her hips. Alex was lost for words.
He didn't want to let her win the argument but she had.
He shook his head, gave up then left.
