After We Collided (After, #2) by Anna Todd Read Online (FREE)
Molly raises one brow. “Really?”
“Okay . . . okay . . . calm down, you two,” Nate says.
As much as I’m enjoying watching Tessa put Molly in her place, I don’t want Molly to take it too far. Tessa is a lot more fragile and sensitive than she is, and Molly will say anything she can to hurt Tessa.
“Who goes first?” Tristan asks.
Tessa’s hand shoots up immediately. “Me.”
Oh Lord, this is going to be a fucking disaster.
“I think that maybe I should go first,” Steph interjects.
Tessa sighs but sits silently, bringing her cup to her lips. Her lips are reddish from the cherry drink, and for a moment I’m lost in thoughts of them being wrapped around me—
“Hardin, truth or dare?” Steph breaks me from my perverted thoughts.
“Not playing,” I say and try to go back to my fantasy.
“Why not?” she asks.
The spell broken, I look at her and groan. “A, I don’t want to. B, I’ve played more than enough lame-ass games.”
“Isn’t that the truth,” Molly mutters.
“That isn’t what he meant, back off,” Tristan says to defend me.
Why did I ever fuck Molly, again? She’s hot and was decent at giving blow jobs, but she’s so damn annoying. The memory of her touching me makes me nauseous, and I give Steph a keep-it-moving hand motion in order to redirect my mind.
“Okay, Nate. Truth or dare?” Steph asks.
“Dare,” he answers.
“Hmm . . .” Steph points to a tall girl wearing bright red lipstick. “I dare you to go kiss that blonde in the blue shirt.”
Looking over, he whines, “Can’t I kiss her friend instead?”
We all look at the girl next to the blonde, who has long, curly hair and deep brown skin. She’s much prettier than the blonde, so for Nate’s sake I hope Steph allows the change. But instead she laughs and says with authority, “Nope, Blondie it is.”
“You are evil.” He groans, and everyone laughs as he walks toward the girl.
As Nate walks back with red lipstick stains around his lips, I now get why Tessa usually despises these games. Daring one another to do stupid things like this is just pointless. I never minded before, but then again I’ve never wanted to kiss one person only. I never want to kiss anyone except Tessa ever again.
When Nate dares Tristan to drink a cup of beer that people have been using for an ashtray, I zone out. I take a lock of Tessa’s soft hair between my fingers, slowly twisting it around. She covers her face with her hands as Tristan gags and Steph shrieks.
After a few more mindless dares, it’s finally Tessa’s turn. “Dare,” she bravely says to Ed.
I glare at him, warning him that if he dares her to do anything inappropriate, I will not hesitate to jump across the table and choke him. He’s a pretty cool and chill guy, so I didn’t really think he would go too far, but I wanted to warn him anyway. “I dare you to take a shot,” he says.
