When they got home Ethan was there waiting for them. He greeted May with a warm smile and a hug. He completely ignored Chris, who was standing awkwardly in the corner, pretending to fascinated with the wall.
"Ethan, you know Chris right?"
May asked. Ethan's dark eyes flicked over to Chris, who mumbled a hello and flashed a quick smile.
"I know Chambers."
Ethan strolled towards him not breaking his cool gaze.
"I hear you're working at the party. That's good, saves my girl having to clean up the puke."
"He won't be cleaning up any puke. He's the life guard."
He said simply, before turning and walking back to May.
"You should be getting ready, can't wait to see how beautiful you look tonight."
He took her waist and leaned in to kiss her, at the last moment she turned her head sideways, so his kiss landed on her cheek.
"Well, I'll see you later. See you Chris."
She smiled before leaving the room. as soon as she left, Ethan glared at Chris.
"Who the fuck do you think you are!"
Ethan burst out while keeping his voice low.
Chris replied, though he already knew what he meant.
"Oh don't play dumb with me Prince Charming! I saw you, with my girl, laughing away with some painfully obvious flirting."
Chris was relieved thats all he saw, but also somewhat angry. How could he blame him? May kissed him.
"We nothing. You – May nothing. Don't look at her, don't talk to her, don't even think about her!"
Chris laughed heartily, not even taking Ethan seriously.
"Since when were you the boss of me? No wait, since when were you the boss of her?"
"Since I bought this."
He reached into his pocket and pulled out a silver ring, on the ring was diamond heart, encrusted by what looked like sapphires. All Chris's hopes fell flat, he wouldn't ever be able to afford a ring like that, she deserved this. He knew Ethan would be good to her, he knew Ethan would do buy her all the things he wished he could. Ethan looked him straight in the eye
He stalked away to the pool, watching the cool water flow against the hot sun.
"OW! OW Mom! It's too tight."
"It's gonna zip up if it's the last thing I do!"
Screeched Mrs. Brower tugging at the zipper on the cream dress. she knew about the engagement, it was going to happen in front of everyone. She had picked this dress out especially for it and it was GOING to fit. Of course it was a shame that she had only met this boy a few days ago, when he came to ask Hank's permission to marry her, he obviously didn't know about her real father. May was never the one for talking about her life. Giving one final pull of the zipper, it went up.
She huffed falling down on the bed.
"You look beautiful honey!"
"Mom, I can't breathe.."
"oh pish posh"
"Sorry, I forgot oxygen wasn't important."
"Enough with the sarcasm May Brower."
The doorbell rang
"Looks like your first guests are here, Go answer the door! Be polite remember!"
" Depends on who it is."
Mrs. Brower warned.
She opened the door to Connie, Audrey and Sadie.
May said curtly
She replied thrusting a present in her arms and shoving past her, Connie did the same.
May joked to Sadie, who helped her carry in the presents.
"Hey where's the party at?"
Asked Connie who was wearing an extremely slutty purple dress
"Did anyone even come?"
Sneered Audrey who was wearing a flowy pink dress that went down to her knees.
"Out back, you guys are the first ones here."
May replied numbly.
"Thanks you look lovely by the way."
Audrey replied, looking her up and down and snickering to Connie.
"Thanks, wish I could say the same."
Sadie burst out laughing while Audrey gaped in disbelief.
" There's my beautiful girl"
Said Ethan who appeared behind her and kissed her cheek.
Audrey said fixing her hair. May raised an eyebrow giving Audrey the 'jealous?' look. She stormed away out back. The rest of the guests arrived and it wasn't long before the party went into full swing.
