After about an hour the boys returned. It was getting late and Brittany started to yawn.

“I think it’s about time we were heading out,” Simon said.

“It’s not that late,” Brittany said. “Besides we still have lots of planning for this party.”

“We’ll do it tomorrow,” Alvin said. “But for right now you need some sleep.”

“Alvin’s right,” Jeanette said and hugged her sister. “We’ll talk about it tomorrow.”

“Oh, alright,” Brittany said as Simon and Jeanette were walking out. She closed the door and looked back at Alvin. She smiled as she walked closer to him. He took her hands and led her towards the bedroom.

“So, what did you and your sister talk about?” he asked after they entered the bedroom.

“Oh, nothing, just sister stuff,” Brittany said as she started to undress.

”Is that all?” he asked, coming up behind her.

“What else is there?” she said as walked over and sat on the bed. Alvin gave her a stern look. “Okay.” She hesitated for a moment. “Jeanette seems to think that I might need to talk to someone. You know, about what happened.”

Alvin sat next to her and took her in his arms. “I think she’s right.”

She pulled away slightly. “Not you too,” she snapped. She got up and folded her arms over keeping her back turned. “I’m perfectly fine.”

“I don’t think you are,” Alvin said and forced her to turn around and look at him. “I’m just worried about you.”

“I’m alright,” she said. “Besides the only person I need is you.”

“Well, you got me,” Alvin and put his arms around her. “I’m not going anywhere.”

“Good,” she said and smiled. She yawned again as Alvin led her back to the bed. He pulled back the covers and she laid down. He laid next to her wrapping her arms around her. At that moment she felt safe, and she always hoped it would be that way.

That night Brittany fell asleep almost instantly. She felt somewhat safe and secure knowing Alvin was next to her.


The next morning Alvin was the first to wake. He heard his phone ring and answered it quickly so it didn’t wake Brittany. He dashed into the living after picking it up.
