All My Reasons For Insanity

Surround Your Heart With Lies Until The End

*Erika's P.O.V.*

I was awoken by the sweet smell of coffee, and didn't even bother to open my eyes as I climbed out of bed and walked zombie-like toward the kitchen. The sound of Sunday morning cartoons played lowly in the background as I walked past the living room, shielding my eyes from the ever curious sun.

"Erika, We need to talk." I heard Shawn call from the couch, the loud sound of his voice made me grasp at my head and groan, but didn't stop my clumsy feet from heading towards the heavy dosage of caffeine I knew I needed before I attempted to converse about anything.

"Stop yelling..." I muttered, as I robotically slipped into the kitchen and began to pour my coffee, taking a long sip of the drug and feeling a bit more awake. The feel of Shawn's arms wrapped around my waist brought me into reality, and I turned to finally open my eyes and glance at him, his features glowering with rage. "What happened?"

"You have to tell them to leave." He whispered, his eyes drifting to the door.

"Who are you talking...?" Instantaneously I was reminded of the man from last night, and how I had completely let the alcohol take over me. Prying myself away from Shawn, I darted out of the kitchen and through the hallway to the living room, where the man from last night was sitting comfortably on my couch, along with Matt, Ellie, and three other men whom seemed anonymous to me.

"Good morning, sleepy head." Ellie said with a happy smile, jumping up off the couch and pulling me close to her. My sisters appearance wasn't much different from mine. 5'4, dirty blonde with greenish hazel eyes, and her hair shoulder length, as she always wore it when we were younger. I accepted the embrace with little reluctance, it'd always been a comfort to be near my twin. "We decided to let you sleep out the alcohol, it's easier to speak to a sober you."

"You never told me you had a twin." Shawn inquired.

"I told you tons of times, you just didn't care." I scoffed.

"Right." Ellie interrupted our public dispute. "Erika, I want to introduce you to my fiance, Johnny." The shortest of the men stood at my sister's side and waved politely, I nodded back.

"Didn't we used to have study block together?" I asked, reflecting upon my high school years.

"Yeah." He chuckled. "You introduced me to your sister days before you left and we just clicked." He wrapped his arm around her waist and smiled at her sweetly.

"That's great!" I exclaimed happily, I always felt there was no one good enough for my sister, but from what I recall, Johnny was a good guy.

"Let's introduce the others, shall we?" Matt barged into our moment of excited giggles. "That one over there is Zack." He pointed to the man with snakebites, who flashed a flirty smile at me. "Jimmy." He pointed towards the man I had recognized immediately, whose eyes fell to the rug under his feet. "And Syn." The man with lengthy raven hair smirked, and I returned the gesture.

"Nice to meet you all." I offered lowly.

"No need to be shy, I think we all saw a crazier side of you last night." She glanced over to Jimmy as if she knew something.

"Unfortunately, that wasn't 'crazy', I was doing my job." I sighed, taking a seat on the love couch and putting my head between my knees. I was feeling the pressure of all eyes on me, and it wasn't a pleasant feeling.

"Yeah, she's a whore for a living." Shawn snorted, and my head shot up in disbelief. "What? You said it." He shrugged. Glancing at Matt, I could tell he didn't agree with the little comment.

"I'm a waitress." I snapped. He sat down next to me and put his arm around my shoulders.

"You know I'm kidding." He said, as he kissed my cheek. "But I don't want them here tonight." he added in a whisper, low enough for only me to hear. That didn't mean Matt hadn't caught it.

"Their family." I sighed. "How long are you guys staying?"

"After two days of horrible air travel and sickness? I'm going to need at least a week before I can endure that again." Ellie muttered, making me laugh. She had this ultimate fear of flying.

"We can crash on the couch. Trust me, we've had to makeshift with worse." Matt chuckled.

"Actually, no you cant." Shawn interrupted Matt's laugh with Zack. "My family has a planned trip to visit us, unlike you." I elbowed his side roughly.

"I don't care. They're just as welcome as your family is." I sneered.

"Whatever, it's your tuition, baby." He grinned, and I rolled my eyes. Sure, his parents where helping me with my tuition, but why should my family scare them off?

"Well, we where just fixing to go get breakfast, I suppose we should leave you guys to figure everything out?" Matt offered, as he got to his feet and walked towards the door, turning to wave everyone else towards him and waiting for the answer.

"Yes, please." Shawn answered for me, with a smug smile plastered on his face. Matt waved goodbye, and the rest followed as they stepped into the hall to leave us alone. "It's your call." He said, as his hand glided on my thigh.

"I'm not kicking them out, that's rude." I had settled the issue as soon as I said those words, I didn't care anymore.

"Then I guess we should start planning some events, seeing as it'll be a bit crowded in the dorm." He snickered, as his lips pecked sweetly at my neck.

"Stop." I laughed, as his breath tickled my exposed skin.

"You want it." He said with a smirk, before pulling away from me quickly. "I have to start getting everything ready. Don't forget about the dinner tonight. Just you, no family."

"Yes, yes. I know." I sighed.

"I love you, Erika. He whispered, as his lips graced mine for a loving kiss.

"I love you, too." I offered, once we'd parted. Something in me hadn't wanted to say those words, but I did on impulse. I watched him leave, then got up off the couch to roam into the bathroom and think about everything that had happened in the past few hours.
