You’re Mine by Penny Brooks novel Chapter 11

Chapter 11

Harper

That was close.

I press my fingers against my swollen mouth and try not to clench my legs too hard as remember the feel of Easton hard against me.

It was better than last time, more like a sex fueled dream.

A moment that can never happen again, if my brother has anything to say about it. He’s already going to be pissed enough when he sees my costume, please God let Sadie

 

calm him down. Besides when has Sadie ever failed me?

Everything’s going to be fine. Which is both a triumph and a disappointment. I stop in my tracks. If Easton knew, would he be touching me? Insecurity hits hard and fast as my boots click against the beautiful hard wood floors. With confidence I’m not really feeling, I adjust my black mask and walk into the kitchen.

I imagine it’s gonna be nothing but more booze flowing when I stop in my tracks and see Sadie and Ryan in a stand off.

She’s shoving at his chest, murder in her brown eyes as her batgirl

Chanter it

costume seems to tighten around strong, lean legs that look seconds away from jiu jitsuing my brother to the floor-if that’s even a thing.

“Take it back!” she yells.

No wonder she called.

I can’t decide if I’m thankful or disappointed at the interruption.

Ryan’s face is doing that scary, wide eyed rage filled stare thing that means he’s seconds away from either exploding or tossing her over his shoulder and taking out his anger in an entirely different, ewww my best friend and my brother way

“Ryan,” I call. “Stop yelling.”

 

“Stop yell-” His head swivels toward me.

And that’s when I see it.

I thought he was mad when I wore the bikini.

No. This is next level, I may die tonight

I gulp.

His eyes move from my head down to my boots then back up. “YOU!”

One word.

His jaw clenches.

“YOU!” He yells again, only this time he’s stomping toward me.

“Were not invited and who the hell gave you that costume!”

I’m silent, so is everyone else in the stupid kitchen.

He’s now in a stand off between the two of us, the crowd continues to gather to see the drama.

“What the hell are you thinking wearing that

Sadie claps a hand over Ryan’s mouth the minute Easton makes his presence known in the kitchen. My stomach drops to my toes.

Shit.

Is this how he’s going to find out?

| officially hate my brother.

 

What’s the term where you kill off your sibling?

Fratricide?

Tears well in my eyes as I realize I’m the center of attention-the thing I hate the most as my brother semi shoves her away and walks toward me.

This is it.

The moment Easton finds out my true identity

Fear pounds through me, making it impossible to move.

“There you are!” Aisha runs up to Easton and throws herself around his body

 

“Oh wow, so not only am I a whore, but now you’re going to tattle on me? Yeah okay, have fun when D ad buries your body in the backyard after I tell him to check behind your nightstand.”

It feels like I’m back in sixth grade, when I wore lipstick for the first time and Ryan told me to take it off in front of all my friends, while Easton stood by and laughed at

  1. me.

Normally, I’d just scowl and look away.
