Hope you all enjoyed chapter ten. This chapter will also be in Colby's point of view. Sit back and enjoy.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but my OC and idea. Also, I know next to nothing about Colby's residence so I'm just guessing at this point. All mistakes are mine and I apologize for them.
Recap: Colby and Anna went on their date to a Greek restaurant. Anna took Colby to a small ice cream stand for dessert. Colby asked Anna if she wanted to spend the night with him and she agreed.
I woke up to my alarm going off and I quickly realized that there was someone laying next to me. I groaned and stretched, careful not to hit Anna laying next to me. "Morning, Anna."
"Morning, Colby. How'd you sleep?"
"Better than I have in a long time. How about you?"
"Best sleep I've ever had."
"You've got to remember that I've been conditioned on those cots the Army supplies us with overseas." I nodded, feeling slightly dumb. "Do you usually eat breakfast?"
"I'm usually late so not really."
"What time do you have to be in?"
"Nine." Anna looked at the clock and smiled.
"Let's get you some breakfast then." I watched Anna practically bounce out of my bedroom but my smile disappeared when my phone started to ring. Strange, I wasn't late or anything and I knew that I didn't have to be in until nine. I checked the caller-id: Don Eppes. I answered the phone without trying to sound sleepy.
"Where's my sister, Granger?"
"Here, with me. Why?"
"I thought I told you to leave her alone."
"She's a grown woman, Don. I can't help if she wants to spend time with me and I'm not about to tell her what she can and cannot do. You shouldn't do it either."
"I'm her brother, it's different."
"No, it's not. One way or another, you're trying to control her and that isn't right. It will blow up in your face, I will tell you that right now."
"That a threat, Granger?"
"No. It's an educated guess but if you don't want to believe me, that's fine too."
"Listen to me because I'm not telling you again: stay away from Anna." I clenched my fists, feeling my anger rise the more Don talked to me.
"Last I checked, I was the one actually helping Anna not you."
"You know what, how about you take some time off so you can figure out how to think straight again?"
"Sounds great." I hung up the phone before listening to any more of Don's bullcrap.
"You okay, Colby?" I looked up at Anna and shook my head. "What's wrong?"
"It's Don." Anna rolled her eyes and sat down next to me. "He seems to think that with me helping you, I'm trying to take advantage of you after your accident. Since he won't believe me, I believe I've just been suspended until I agree with him." I heard Anna scoff and I half-smiled. "What?"
"Don is an idiot, just so you know."
"I've been told before, trust me. I guess he's trying to look out for you."
"Ha. He just hates it when I get play and he doesn't." I laughed at Anna's way of putting her brother's 'over-protectiveness'.
"You really think that's what it is?"
"Absolutely. Don always hated it when I had someone after me, especially in high school. It hurt his ego, let me tell you. He wouldn't talk to me for weeks if I had some guy talking to me while there were no girls talking to him."
"I can see Don doing that."
"Yeah. Can someone say 'fragile ego'?" I choked on the orange juice I was currently drinking. "What? It's true, Colby." I wiped my mouth off and smiled at Anna.
"I know it is. It's why I laughed."
Next chapter will be up soon. Hope ya'll enjoyed it. I apologize profusely for the short length. Reviews are appreciated. : )
