Original Author: Sealand-Aria

It doesn’t seem real.

four years of forcing myself into a life that wasn’t really mine, I’m ready to go home.

I just need to put a big fat end to what lately made me miserable, and after that…I’m ready to go home to my brothers and the twins…

God, I haven’t seen those boys in almost three years, I wonder how they are…

With these thoughts in mind, Madison is moving around her dorm like a tornado.

The excitement of finally leaving this place and the faces that lived there is pumping her up like adrenaline.

One box after another, she slowly packs away her college life.

Now, only one more thing separates her from a complete and total “end”: her so-called boyfriend, Daniel.

Madison has, in fact, for the last month kept promising herself that she would, one day, break up with him.

And today is finally that day.

Liam
Sis, I’m sorry I can’t make it! Ethan is going to pick you up! Should be there around 3pm! Sorry, again xx love you!

What she doesn’t really need right now is to know that her brother, Liam, couldn’t make it.

And, on top of that, as if today wasn’t already fucked-up enough, Ethan is going to pick her up.

Ethan Thompson, evil twin number one.

She answers pretty quickly.

Madison
Great, just great. Thanks, Bro…

She still has things to pack and, besides, in about fifteen minutes she is supposed to meet Daniel.

For the break-up.

Liam
I’m sorry…besides, You haven’t seen the twins in forever, it will be good. Love you x

Right, I know that. And sometimes I’ve wished they’d actually found the time to come and visit me with my brothers, but they never did.

Although I’ve never talked to them so much in my life—they called almost every day.

Right, focus, Madison.

The twins have always had this power of destabilizing her, but today she needed to be focused.

At least for the next thirty minutes.

Daniel needs to be out of her life as soon as possible, and not only because things weren’t going well but because she knows he’s a cheater.

Not to mention the fact that they were and are two worlds apart.

Madison, for instance, is the classic girl next door: genuine, gentle, funny, ready to help, very proactive, and you know, integrated with college life.

Part of sports teams and all.

That doesn’t mean that she’s a bore. In fact, she also goes partying every chance she gets.

Of course, what attracts people at first, before her constant smile and her bright personality, is her looks.

Her big, ice-blue eyes, the cascade of pearl-white, curly hair (a peculiarity that only now has she started to appreciate), legs for days, and a toned body that makes the most beautiful models jealous.

Daniel, on the other hand, is the classic football team member: a womaniser, and not committed to anything apart from that.

Sure he’s beautiful, and sure, at first he was a real charmer, but things got different and weird after the first few months.

The reason why, truth to be told, was Madison never felt strongly enough to give her full self to him.

They’re not engaged, and absolutely not love, so she is still a virgin.

At twenty-one years old.

Checking the clock, which right now is pointing at 2:15, with adrenaline running through her body, Madison leaves her room and walks all the way to the opposite dorm.

She reaches Daniel’s floor. No one’s around. Many people in fact had already left the day before.

“Here we are…,” she whispers to herself, approaching the room, but a few steps away she stops.

The door is slightly open and the noises coming from inside are not at all the noises of people packing…those are the noises of people fucking.

Walking a little closer and taking a peek into the room, she sees what she already knew.

Daniel is happily immersed in Joanna’s body.

The same Joanna who swore to be her closest friend, sure. But this is something that she already knew, so she isn’t shocked.

Just in a big hurry to end this thing.

So, snapping a picture of them, she writes the following message and attaches it.

Madison
Thanks for making things so easy. Don’t bother to come to look for me, both of you, enjoy the rest of the summer

With a smile and an immense feeling of satisfaction, she presses send, ready to be out of this place.

Once back in her room, she goes straight to finishing her packing.

When a message pops onto her screen, sure of who it will be, she sighs.

For once, she is happy to be wrong. It isn’t Daniel, instead it’s Ethan.

Ethan
I’m here, can’t wait to see your ugly face x

And for the first time, she is super happy to see him. Not that she doesn’t like him. On the contrary, he and Levi are like an extension of her brothers.

It’s mainly that since Madison is the last of her siblings and the only daughter, all the boys in the house are very protective.

Of course, only when they weren’t annoying the shit out of her or making her life a living hell.

Not to mention the fact that she basically didn’t have a personal life or a boyfriend until she left for college,

Why? Because they prevented it.

Madison
Come up than lazy ass!

And not even a minute after she presses send, the door of her room opens slightly with an audible crack.

“I thought once you knew Iwas coming you were going to run away…”

She would recognise his husky voice out of thousands. Turning her head in his direction, she is taken aback for a second.

He is indeed a handsome…man…now.

Not that before he wasn’t, it’s just now, it’s a man and not a boy.

He’s at least six foot three of God’s work.

Dishevelled dark hair frames his manly face perfectly, showing off his bright-green eyes as the only bright thing on his face.

A layer of thin black beard that only defines his strong jaw gives him an even sexier look.

His shoulders are so wide, and his muscles so defined, that his clothes can’t even hide them…

And those perfect lips, curved into a smirk that really speaks for itself.

“Trust me, the thought to run away was there…but I had too many boxes to do it all by myself.”

She smiles and, pointing at the ten or more boxes on the floor, slowly walks in his direction.

The moment he opens his arms to her, in fact, she sinks herself into them, letting her body relax at his warm embrace.

Although, the way he stares at her makes her bite the inside of her mouth.

“Umm…I didn’t expect you to be so…grown-up.” His voice rumbles through his chest and, squeezing her a little against his body, he kisses the top of her head, like he used to do when she was a kid.

An action that only makes her inhale his scent more. It has, over the years, only matured. A musky scent with a pinch of spicy mint.

“Well…I can’t be a kid forever, now can I?”

Just as she pulls away to lock eyes with him, her door slams open and a very distressed Daniel walks in, followed by a very irritated and half-naked Joanna.

“Madison, let me explain…,” he mumbles, gasping. He must have been running.

His jaw, however, drops open the moment his eyes land on Ethan, who’s a few steps away from Madison and not too far from him.

With his arms crossed and his usual dark expression on, Ethan can be quite intimidating.

“All good, Flake?” Ethan asks, looking at Madison.

His firm and protective stare is something that, weirdly enough, she missed.

Ethan

“No…all good,” she mouths back at Daniel before stepping a little closer to him. If there was any emotion in her, you couldn’t really tell.

“I don’t think there is much to explain here. You are a cheater and to prove that, you were having sex with her a few minutes ago.”

Her cold and almost deadly tone makes Ethan smirk.

“So, let’s just make things easier. We’ve never been compatible and surely we can’t be…you are a cheater and also a very low-standard one…”

Her eyes moved from him to Joanna in slow-motion as she speaks, still stone-cold.

“And you know…I get that. Why would you try harder to get something if you can win the game in an easy way? I wouldn’t have sex with you, so you found someone that actually would. So what is there to explain?”

Madison’s eyes are locked on Daniel, who at the moment seems to have lost any willpower to react.

“Plus…since we are here and the truth is being said…if you are as good in bed as you were at foreplay, and, anyway, last as long…I don’t even think I’ve missed much.”

Turning to Joanna, she smirks at her proudly.

“And if you are happy with him…well, happy for you to keep him. I’m surely looking for something…bigger and better than this.”

Stepping a little closer, she stares at them for a moment, before pointing at the door.

“You can go.”

Daniel didn’t manage to say a word and he is still shocked.

“You bitch! How dare you talk to us like that? You are the one who…,” Joanna tries to say, but Ethan stops her by stepping in front of her and Daniel.

“I suggest you leave, now. We have better things to do…and they don’t involve you, or you…”

Madison

Ethan’s voice is so warm that it gives Madison a jolt of chills down her spine the moment he speaks, and with a wink, he reaches for the small of her back with his hands.

“Bye now.”

One more death stare to the couple and, as neither of them dares to say anything else, when Ethan arches his brow harshly in their direction they walk out, without even looking back.

The smirk on Ethan’s face is so big that it makes Madison laugh until he turns to her with a very questioning expression on his face

“Oh…Ethan, please, don’t even start.”

“What now? I wasn’t going to say anything.”

“Mm…sure you weren’t.”

“Well…one thing actually…,” he says now, stepping his way closer to her.

From where he is she can feel the warmth of his body.

“You two never had sex?” He is so close that his minty breath brushes on her face, forcing her to bite the corner of her lips.

“Seriously?!” That’s all she says and, turning her back to him, she moves a little further, where all her boxes are stacked.

“Come on, let’s get moving, I can’t wait to leave this hell behind me.” And with that said, she bends over to take a box from the floor.

For all the time she does up and down with the boxes, she can’t stop feeling Ethan’s eyes on her back.

It’s only when she actually spots his intense gaze on her bottom that she realizes that probably her short green summer dress isn’t doing a great job covering her curves.

However, she doesn’t pay much attention to it right now.

After twenty-five minutes, all the boxes are loaded in the car and, with the hot weather of the day and the fact that her room was on the second floor with no lift, they both look pretty heated and messy right now.

“Jesus, girl, I can’t believe how much stuff you’ve collected over the years! Good thing I came with the SUV.”

“Well, smartass, I’ve been here three years, so I guess I have accumulated a few things…”

Ethan shakes his head while getting in the car on the driver’s side with his usual cheeky smile on.

His hair now is even messier than before; a few locks on his forehead are slightly wet now and that only makes him look even more incredibly sexy.

Jumping in the car and adjusting herself in the seat smoothly, she looks over at him, because she can’t really stop herself.

When she is set, Ethan smiles at her once more before starting the engine.

She’s never felt so happy and relieved at the same time.

Finally, it’s over.

Ethan

Being her usual self, Madison’s lips are curved into a happy, relieved smile.

However, the idea of meeting her brothers and her best friend soon only helps that smile grow so big that her dimple decides to show up, giving her a too-cute expression.

“Really, Ethan?!” she mutters the moment Ethan’s index finger strikes right into her dimple, but even the annoyance in her tone seems to be funny for him.

“You know I can’t resist,” he answers simply, shrugging his shoulders and smirking at her one more time before he looks back at the road.

“Besides, you are funny when you are annoyed…and that doesn’t seem to have changed.”

In fact, she looks quite different, grown. Definitely in front of him now is not the same shy, at times annoying little girl who left for college three years ago.

It seems more an upgraded version of that: a young woman.

And why is that surprising me now?

He is not sure, but the confusion on his face seems to be quite clear.

“What’s that look?!” Madison’s attentiveness hasn’t changed. “And…anyway, how come you had to come and pick me up?”

“Nothing, I was just thinking,” he answers, looking back at the street before glancing at her for a moment.

“Well, Liam and Ezra both got caught up at work. The new gym was supposed to be ready to open tomorrow but something came up with the swimming pool, so they all had to go on-site to solve the problem…

“And since there is money involved, they took Levi as well for some legal advice. One lawyer was enough, so here I am.”

The mention of Levi’s name for sure brought a new smile to Madison’s face; however, her expression doesn’t look satisfied yet.

“Are you that upset that I came instead?” His low voice only makes him sound more appealing, but as usual, he sounds like the tease he is.

“Mm, nope… I mean, it could have been worse than this, I guess.”

“Yeah? How so?”

“Mm…don’t know, like the evil twins together?!”

Her frowning expression doesn’t do the job and somehow amazing him some more.

“You think? I think instead that you would have liked that…”

Such a tease he is.

Madison’s eyes don’t leave his features for a moment and that’s why she can appreciate how his smile changes into a smirk that has something to hide.

But as she shifts in her seat in order to be more comfortable, she ends up caught up in his eyes for a moment too long.

The look they share is difficult to explain, but the way her body reacts when her brain finally thinks about the idea of being alone with both boy, is surprisingly destabilizing.

Her own thoughts have her blushing, and Ethan seems to notice that but weirdly he doesn’t say anything.

Before, in fact, he would have picked up on that, but now he doesn’t. That’s one of the reasons why, before this moment, she would have thought of being alone with the two of them as torture.

Right now, it sounds very thrilling.

“I have spent way too much time alone with you to think of it as something that I could like…”

Lies have never been one of her strongest skills, but trying never killed anyone.

“Oh, we weren’t so bad…besides, your brothers trusted us more than nannies.”

Thinking about it, she never had a nanny, even if her parents were never home.

And so it is true that they trusted them the most, not only because they are basically brothers separated at birth and seven years older than Madison too, but also because of the bond they all shared.

In their alone times, anyway, not everything was a tease and so bad.

It did happen that the twins taught her a few useful things while her brothers were away, mostly when she was a teen.

“I guess if my brothers knew exactly how you guys were taking care of me back in the day, they probably wouldn’t have let you near me anymore”

“Oh, come on, we had so much fun! You can’t deny that…”

“Fun? I call you the evil twin for a reason…beyond the fact that you two made all the boys that I liked run away from me…”

“Hey now…we did that for you! Those boys weren’t good for you…”

“Sure. And you knew how?”

“We just knew it.”

“Well…thanks to you…look where I am now…”

“Where are you now?” he mutters, almost in a whisper while looking at her for a split second.

That question, however, sounds deeper than it seems and it gives Madison shivers.

What does he know?

“How is he? Levi?” she asks, changing the subject completely. She won’t talk with himabout her virginity status. “You two stopped visiting me after second year…”

“But we called every day. Besides, boys would have run even further if we had kept visiting you.”

There is a little sigh escaping his mouth just as his mind hits a dark spot, but before his eyes can give him away, he smiles once more.

“Levi is just as fine as he could be and a dick…but he is definitely happy that you are coming back.”

“Yeah…true. Better than nothing, right?” Her sweetness didn’t change either. “Is he still with the blondie?”

A yawn escapes her lips as he speaks and, covering her mouth, she rests her head against the window.

“Nah, thank God…you know us, long term isn’t our thing.”

“Or relationships for that matter…” Another yawn, but Ethan doesn’t seem to be bothered by it.

“Correct,” he answers and as he drives, he glances at her. She seems to be quite tired.

It doesn’t take a lot, in fact, for her to drift off to sleep after a few minutes of silence. Watching her asleep was always quite relaxing, and it is even now.

The only difference is that she doesn’t look like a kid anymore.

That she isn’t seventeen anymore. In fact, it hit him the moment he entered her room earlier today.

Wearing those clothes—a short,loose dress with a deep neckline—he easily realises a few things: her features are the features of a young woman and her body filled out nicely in all the perfect places.

Her dress, in fact, shows her breasts are now full, round, and firm, and so is her ass, while her stomach is perfectly flat.

Her legs, which go for days, are just as toned and slender as they could be, and her natural tan only makes them look even more defined and desirable.

That she was a natural beauty, they all knew, but her exercising routine sure helped.

“Jesus…,” he growls in a low whisper as he curses himself.

Surely his sex isn’t supposed to react to her, not right now anyway.

A cold sip of water seems to sound very good right now to get rid of those thoughts and so, adjusting his sex in his trousers, he slowly stretches out to reach the glove box where he keeps his water.

Being in a moving car though doesn’t make it so easy to reach it, and so, unintentionally, while pulling back, he brushes the bottle against Madison’s legs, causing her to shiver for a second while still sleeping.

The image that he gets as she tilts her head slightly is quite special: her cheeks are flushed from the heat and her lips slightly parted.

Her eyes seem to start moving and the small noises she makes sound just as good.

It takes her a few minutes really to open her eyes, but when she does and she looks for his eyes, her eyes look even brighter.

“Mm…sorry…I’ve fallen asleep,” she whispers in her hoarse voice. The water in that bottle seems to make her thirsty too.

“Don’t worry, sleep, Flake… You looked quite tired.”

“Mm…I was. May I?” she mumbles, adjusting the seat while furrowing her perfect brow and pointing at the water, clearly still sleepy.

“Here,” he answers, handing over the bottle and drying his mouth with the back of his hand. He looks back on the road. “We are almost at home anyway.”

“Already? How long have I been out for?”

“Almost four hours.”

“Shit. I didn’t realise I was that tired…”

“It’s okay, I guess you had a lot of things to do, apart from having sex, of course.”

The smug look on his face makes Madison furrow both her eyebrows and, taking advantage of him driving, she punches his arm before showing him her middle finger.

“You know, not everybody likes to fuck like rabbits.”

“I’m sure that is just because you didn’t find any good…tools yet.”

“Whatever… Are the guys home?”

She tries again to change the subject—she really doesn’t want him to know that to be honest, she is a virgin.

“Hm…I’m not sure. They should be home by now.”

“Okay…,” she answers.

Leaning forward to grab her bags from the floor, her straps fall off her shoulder, leaving her left breast completely on show since it’s only covered only by her lace bra.

“Um…,” he seems to growl, but without saying anything he simply stretches out his arm and, with his index finger, grabs the straps of her dress, pulling them back on her shoulder.

The contact of his cold finger against her warm skin makes her gasp, and when the realisation of her being on full show hits her, she blushes one more time.

“Uh… Thanks.”

From the corner of her eye, she glances at him, and it’s only when he adjusts himself again that she catches a glimpse of his bulge.

A view that has her pressing her legs together tightly as a new feeling takes over her body.

Luckily for her, she doesn’t need to think about it as Ethan is just pulling into the driveway. The sight of her house has her forgetting about that for now.

“Happy?” he asks, catching the smile brightening her face.

“You have no idea…”

“Let’s get you in then.”

And stopping the car with one more look in her direction, Ethan jumps out of the car, quickly followed by Madison.

It takes them over ten minutes to take all her stuff out of the car, but once they are done, they both look like a mess.

“Thanks, Ethan, for your help.”

“Yea, no problem, Flake. I’ve got to go and meet the boys, but we will all be back for dinner.”

“Sorry for falling asleep.”

“It’s okay, next time I’ll make sure you’ll be awake.”

Whatever he means she doesn’t seem to catch it, and wrapping her arms around his perfect hard waist, she rests her head on his chest for a minute.

“I’ll make dinner then… As a thank you.”

“Sounds good to me…your hands have always been magic.”

Pulling away, she tilts her head just enough to look at the house. “It’s so good to be home, I’ve missed it…”

“And did you miss us?”

Rolling her eyes, she steps back, turns on her heel, and reaches her door.

She doesn’t give him an answer. However, from the smile she sends his way, it does look like one—a positive one—and with one more look, she walks inside, ready to start over again.
