Chapter 5.18

Lexie

These past few weeks were literally like a dream come true. Living with THE Jenny Sanderson was exactly like I’d envisioned: late night popcorn fights, gigglefests over the latest Starlight Shores gossip, makeovers, braiding hair chains, the list went on and on. I was so girlied-up that I thought my female meter might go off the charts and explode into cute chibi stuffed animals.

As Jenny painted my toenails, I gazed at her perfectly upturned nose and clear skin. She was breathtaking just to look at. I felt a twinge inside. Like a connection to a person I knew I’d be friends with for all my life. “Why are you so nice to me?” I asked.

“What’s that, honey?” she sang, not looking up.

I shrugged. “I don’t know…you’ve just treated me like a true friend when you never knew me from a hole in the wall before. Most people wouldn’t try so hard, but you…you’re the sweetest person I’ve ever met.”

She chuckled nervously. “I-I’m not that nice. Just take a look at your walls, sweetheart. If I was a saint, I’d put Charlie back for you.”

I smiled. “I don’t mind them anymore.”

“Ah HA!” She waved the nailpolish brush around. “So you WILL go out with my brother.”

Shaking my head, I said, “Nope. Just because I like you doesn’t mean I’ll like him. He’s too much of a diva. Sorry…I don’t want to be mean…”

“That’s what the tabloids say about him. It’s so not true, babycakes. Take a chance! Just one date and I’ll stop pestering you.”

A twinge of guilt nagged at me. I tried to think about going out with James. Girls cried in his presence and he couldn’t give them the time of day. He was notorious for not handing out autographs when all the other guys in the band did–especially Charlie. Now HE was someone I wanted to date. Not just because he was easy on the eyes, but because he was so good to his fans, too. He cared about them. Anyone who could be that unselfish was tops in my comic book. But I was wrong about getting access to him through Jenny. She said she didn’t have much contact with the band even though her brother headlined. I’d heard that about famous people not really letting in their family. Another strike against James. Too bad he wasn’t like his sister–I’d date him in a heartthrob heartbeat.

“My God, would you look at those hangnails. Girl, when was the last time you had a decent manicure?”

“Since never,” I confessed. “Seems like a big waste of time and money. I’m not famous and rich like you.”

She blew on my nails to help them dry. “I’m not famous. That’s my brother. Thank God, too, or I wouldn’t be able to function.”

“You’re famous to me,” I said, “I fangirled hard when I saw you at my door.” I still got out of body moments when looking at Jenny holding my hand. This was so surreal. I went from her biggest fan to her best friend in a few weeks.

In the end, I hated my nails any color but natural so I wiped off all the nail polish. Jenny shook her head at me, “What did you do, pretty kitten? I spent all that time painting those.”

“I’m sorry, Jenny…it’s just not me. I’m not gorgeous like you are. I can’t pull off nail polish and make up and fluffy hair.”

She grazed her hands over my cheeks. “Are you kidding? You’re the most beautiful girl I’ve seen. I like that you’re not all made up. You don’t need anything. You have natural beauty.”

Screenshot_647

“You’re such a little liar!” I said, trying to hide a smile. “You’re always nagging me to do my hair or go out with make up on or wear my contacts.”

She put her hand up. “Did I say such things? No…that couldn’t be me. I’d never want you to change. Now as for my twin brother, though, he might like a more sophisticated style for you…”

I took a pillow and acted huffy. “If you say something about your brother one more time…”

Screenshot_650

“Are you threatening me, honeybee? With…a pillow?”

Screenshot_651

“It’s cocked and fully loaded.”

Screenshot_652

“Go out with my brother and you wouldn’t have to resort to such violence.”

“Ugh!” I cried, trying to cover her mouth.

Screenshot_653

“No. More. James!” I yelled.

Screenshot_654

“All right, all right, I’ll stop!” she said, giggling. “But right after you go to the movies with… JAMES!”

“Now you’ve done it!” I said, putting my weight on top of the pillow.

Screenshot_655

I dove after her as we wrestled around on the bed. Then we collapsed after my sides pinched I’d been laughing so hard.

In a few moments, our eyes locked, and I felt a bit uncomfortable and comfortable all at the same time.

“Thanks for letting me stay with you, Lexie. I’d never said that. You’ve…you’ve really helped me get through one of the lowest times of my life.”

Screenshot_656

I wanted to ask her what happened to make her feel badly, but I didn’t want to pry. I figured she’d tell me when she wanted to. It made sense why she’d answered my ad and allowed herself to share a room with a stranger. She needed a break, I guessed, from stress. Probably a bad break up. Who knew? But I was glad things happened the way they did.

I reached for her hand and squeezed. “Of course. I’m always here for you, Jenny, if you need a friend.”

Screenshot_657

“How about a sister-in-law?”

I laughed. “You never give up!”

Screenshot_658

She kissed my forehead, smiling gently. “Goodnight, sweetpeeps.” Then she closed her eyes to go to sleep.

I shut out the lights and followed, not minding sharing my bed. It was like I’d gained a sister, something I’d never had before.

  1. If I didn’t know better I’d call this the gayest shit I’ve read in the last 15 minutes. And while the real sour note should be James, it’s actually doing nails that look longer than freshly-cut and filed. Very un-lesbianic I say. 😛

    It’s so sweet that the lie getting revealed will just be…sigh. 😥

    1. Looks that way, doesn’t it? Ugh…a kiss? Hmmm…

      James wouldn’t mind but he’s going to do all he can NOT to kiss her as Jenny (but will he be able to help himself?)

  2. I was thinking…wigs gonna fly off….but no. Is she falling in love with Jenny or is she really just thinking of her as a really, really good friend. I would think good friend. Poor James. Jenny needs to get her to like him, but it’s gonna take some doing.

    1. James has his work cut out for him, doesn’t he?

      That wig is specially made to fit his head so well, it won’t fly off, so you don’t have to worry about that. That is not how she’s going to find out. 😉

  3. Ha! I knew there’d be a weird bit of sexual tension bubbling between them sooner or later! How long before poor Lexie gets confused and starts questioning her sexuality? 🤔😂 Poor, poor Lexie.

    Another super fun chapter as always! ❤

      1. Would Lexi suffer under the thought of being bi?

        Hi, Pammiechick! Great job as usual!!

        This generations was harder to read for me, I don’t know exactly why but I think It is because of the light color of the letters over the white. Or maybe because of the font? I don’t know. I mean harder for my eyes, in a physical way. Maybe I need new glasses or to turn the brightness of my screen down.

        But the plot is so great that I can’t stop!!!
        Please, twist it a little longer!! A man who dresses as a woman but still likes girls!!! For me it is like a dream come true… well, come literature thanks to you! 🙂 Let me live it a little longer!!!

        Well, obviously you are the writer and I believe in you. You have to do as you think it is best for the story.

      2. Hmmm…sorry the font is hard for you to read. Maybe read it on an ereader and enlarge it. That might help. WordPress is hard to read on a phone, IMO. Definitely try turning that brightness down.

        So glad you’re liking this gen besides it being hard on your eyes! James is unique in being a het crossdresser. If Lexie does end up with him, how fun to share clothing with your hubby! 😝

  4. OMMGGGG
    /pile of mush
    /cockles warm and throbbing
    I caaaaaan’t… SO GLORIOUS ❤

    Okay, I'm not normally a gal who's all about the nail painting, hair braiding, pillow fighting stuff, BUT, this was like the best kind of weird flirting EVER and the sexual tension just radiates off of these two crazy kids ok ❤

    The way Lexie looks at Jenny, omg… just say yes to that date plz woman; you are legit killing me rn.

    "In a few moments, our eyes locked, and I felt a bit uncomfortable and comfortable all at the same time."
    NOW KISS.

    I am hoping for a Jenny / Lexie kiss, lolololol
    Hilarious and hot and ohh so very complicated kekekekeke

    1. The complications of a Lexie/Jenny kiss are so SAD! And…that bed scene was so sweet, I wanted the kiss (and so does James). But James desperately wants Lex to go out with HIM not Jenny…hee!

      Glad you loved this sweet chapter! 😈

  5. THE SEXUAL TENSION, OMG.

    I ship it. Aaaa. Sorry Charlie, ilu (and your mom) BUT. Damn, these two got something going on. I feel for Lexie when she finds out the truth, though–trust is an important part of a relationship, and this one is starting off with deception…

    But aaa, they’re so fun and flirty together, and I love how Lexie practically worships “Jenny.” And they seem like BFFs already. It’s so cute!

    Really loved this chapter, and I’m hoping for the best for Lexie. I can’t wait to see her date…! Aaa, seriously, this gen is glorious.

    1. There was a lot of sexual tension!! 😈😈😈

      I’m SHOCKED you love them together…over Charlie!? Well, he will get his time with her and then the ship wars will start. Like you said, this relationship is already off to a really rocky start with THE LIE. But true love cannot be denied…maybe?

      Makes my heart squish that you love this gen so much! 😍❤️💋

  6. That was fun, although I do sense that this won’t end well. One day, Lexie will find out that Jenny is actually James. Wig will unexpectedly come off? Lexie accidentally discovers James out of drag? Who knows? So many predictions!

    I know Jenny’s trying hard to make Lexie like James, but this will take time.

  7. I took a moment to breath again.
    ROFL
    James is making things so so bad for himself in the future!
    I imagined that, if they eventually start dating and stuff…Jenny still in the picture…then an ackward revelation at the wedding day “What do you mean your sister won’t attend your wedding?”
    Sorry, I can’t even make sense anymore. Thank you for the chapter!

  8. Well, James seems to have his opinion about Lexie’s style (“Now as for my twin brother, though, he might like a more sophisticated style for you…”). I don’t know if they would share clothing 😉
    But this gen is really funny as it is! Thank you!
