The sisters had always been close, but with Angharad and Toast working Real Jobs and Capable and Dag at college, they became inseparable during the holiday breaks. Tonight they had convinced Nux and Slit to come to a karaoke bar with them. Neither of the boys liked karaoke, but Nux would go anywhere Capable asked, especially since they were long-distance now, and Slit always liked being included. Well, that, and Capable was pretty sure he and Dag were hooking up, but she didn’t want to think about that.
Cheedo was too young to drink, but the sisters still slipped her drinks and sang some very drunk, very silly karaoke. Nux point-blank refused to join them (he was self-conscious about his voice) but Slit got drunk enough to think shouting “Livin’ on a Prayer” at the microphone constituted as good singing. Capable and Toast got up at one point to sing “Shut Up and Drive”.
Capable got very into the song, shaking her hips and throwing Nux come-hither looks. She was still sober enough to be in control of her movement and it was all very…well. Sexy. Partly because it had been almost two months since they’d seen each other, let alone had sex, and party because, well, Nux thought everything Capable did was sexy. The end result was that his pants got very tight.
When the night was over he dropped everyone off at their respective residences (trying not to judge as Slit and Dag not-so-secretively got out together). Cheedo climbed out in front of their house and turned expectantly to Capable. The redhead looked at Nux and then smiled. “Tell Mom and Dad I’m spending the night at Angharad’s,” she said. “Better tell Angharad too so she can cover for me.”
Cheedo looked between them and smirked. “Have fuuuun,” she sang, closing the car door and skipping up the driveway.
“You know Slit and Dag are getting it on at the apartment, right?” Nux checked. Nux was used to hearing his roommate’s various sexual encounters, but he felt like listening to Slit and Dag bang like a screen door in a hurricane might not exactly put Capable in the mood.
She shrugged, smiling at him. “So drive somewhere else.”
Yes, Nux’s pants were very tight.
