Never Have I Ever

LEXIE’S BED: 10:04 PM SATURDAY, MAY 09, 2020


Lexie’s on her bed watching TV.

Lexie🤨R u okay?
JoshNo, my parents are fighting again.
LexieI am so sorry Josh. ☹️
LexieWhat can I do to cheer you up?
LexieLet’s play ‘never have I ever.’
JoshHow do we play that via phone?
LexieOkay, if you haven’t done the deed, you send a thumbs down, if you have then a thumbs up, r u in?
JoshSounds solid. I guess that’s a lot better than sadly masturbating.
LexieLol. What?
JoshWho’s first?
LexieI’ll go first. Never have I ever drank liquor.👍
LexieYour turn.
JoshNever have I ever watched porn. 👍
JoshYou liar!😂😂
Lexie😐I’m not lying.
JoshYou have never watched porn?? You’re such a liar Lex.
LexieJosh I really have never done that before, you’ve known me for six years yet you don’t know that.
JoshHave you ever touched yourself then?
LexieEw. Can we stop? This isn’t even a part of the game.
JoshIt is. Never have I ever touched myself. 👍
Josh👀Send that emoji
JoshYou are officially a liar🙆‍♂️
LexieI’ve never done it before.
JoshReally? that weird?
JoshFor someone your age...I guess it’s a little weird. But you don’t really have anyone to fantasize about while doing it so I guess it’s understandable🤷‍♂️
LexieWho do you fantasize about while doing it?
JoshMy girlfriend.

Lexie’s heart misses a beat as she reads the text. She swallows hard as another text comes in.

JoshOr Meagan Good. Lol
LexieThat’s cheating.
JoshNope, she’s a celebrity so it doesn’t count. Speaking of which you could definitely fantasize about Harry Stills, a lot of girls seem to like that guy.
LexieHis name is Harry Styles Josh and no, I am not that pathetic to fantasize about someone I would never have a chance with.
JoshYou are not pathetic at all and why do you think you wouldn’t have a chance? You are awesome❤️

She stares at the heart emoji, then shakes her head. It means nothing, and she knows that. The first half of his text does not convince her however, because here she is secretly pining over her best friend.

That is more than pathetic. Suddenly, a thought comes to her mind and she decides to act upon it, no matter how crazy it is.

LexieMy turn. Never have I ever thought about sleeping with my best friend.

Lexie felt like throwing the cell at the other corner of the room. What on earth had possessed her to send that text?

She throws the phone onto her pink sheets and covers her eyes, then quickly picks it up to delete the message but Josh is already typing his reply. Shit.

JoshYou mean, ‘you?’
LexieAm I not your only best friend?
JoshDerrick and Ian are my friends and you’re my best friend so I guess you meant ‘you’ then.
LexieScrap that question, I’ll ask another one.
JoshNo, I’ll answer. But not with an emoji.

Her heart thumps in her chest as she waits for a reply.

JoshI have thought about us doing it...but I can never act upon that.
JoshLol. Are you asking me why?
LexieJust for conversational purposes🤷‍♀️
JoshBecause we are friends. It will make things weird between us, plus I love Sabrina. I wouldn’t do her like that.


JoshDid I hurt ur feelings?
LexieNooooo, I would never ever think of sleeping with you, that’d be weird and strange. I just wanted to spice the game up!😉
JoshOkay. Hey, I think I know who you could fantasize about😏
JoshThat guy you like. That may get you off.
LexieActually that’s fine, it makes no sense. I’ll just be hurting myself emotionally.
JoshI’m sorry.
JoshI’m sorry you’re not able to get who you really want. You deserve everything you want, you’re very amazing.
LexieThank you Josh.

Lexie can feel the tears welling in her eyes and decides that it’s time for some sleep.

LexieI’m going to bed. Gn.
Josh🙁You okay?
LexieYeah, what?
JoshYou say ‘Gn’ instead ‘Goodnight’ when you’re mad.
LexieI’m fine, just reallllly sleepyyyy😴
JoshLol okay goodnight. I love you.


LexieI love you too.

She closes her eyes and lays her head to rest. Thinking about the last words he said to her, a small teardrop escapes and slides along her cheek.
