Chapter 5: The One
5.3 The One: A Thin Line
Angelo was heated there was no way he was going to let Camilla go on a date with Alejandro. Angelo stormed down the stairs to the kitchen where Alejandro was still standing drinking. “I need you to talk to you,” Angelo said angrily.
“Okay, but first you need to take some of that bass out of your voice,” Alejandro said as he calmly gave Angelo a displeased look.
“Am I supposed to be afraid of you?” Angelo asked.
“I’m not trying to frighten you Lo but I am warning you, you need to calm down,” Alejandro replied.
“Or what, are you going to fight me?” Angelo asked. “Or better yet are you going to shoot me because you have been doing that a lot lately!” he yelled.
“What is this about, Camilla?” Alejandro asked becoming annoyed. “You jealous bro?” he questioned. “Get out of your feelings and out of my face before I really get mad.” He stated as he began to walk out of the room.
Angelo punched Alejandro in the side of the head as he walked by. Alejandro laughed, “You hit like a bitch.” He took a swing at Angelo landing a punch square in his face. His nose began to trickle blood. Angelo reached for his nose and wiped away the blood as he glared at Alejandro with hate he is eyes. “Oh, you want some more?” Alejandro laughed. “Okay cousin.” He said rolling up his sleeves as Angelo huffed and puffed. “Let’s go then.” He said. Angelo rushed Alejandro and tackled him to the ground. They were wrestling and hitting each other causing a loud disturbance throughout the house.
Camilla was looking in her closet for shoes when she heard the commotion. “What is that noise?” asked aloud stopping dead in her tracks. She quietly listened for a moment and she heard the faint sound of grunting. She quickly left her room and ran downstairs towards the noise. “What the hell is going on!” she screamed when she saw Alejandro and Angelo fighting. “Stop it!” she yelled as she ran over and tried to pull Alejandro off of Angelo. “Stop it!” she yelled again pulling at Alejandro’s shirt. Alejandro stopped hitting Angelo and got up out of breath.
“Angelo are you okay?” she asked kneeling down beside him and touching his face.
“I’m fine.” He lashed out as he pulled away.
Camilla was stunned, “excuse me then.”
Angelo got up from the floor and rushed upstairs. Camilla slowly stood up and glared at Alejandro with a look of disappointment. “Hey, he hit me first.” He said as he rubbed his knuckles.
“How’s your shoulder?” She asked nonchalantly.
“It’s fine.” He answered.
“I swear you two are like children.” She said. “Do you think you can stay out of trouble while I finish getting dressed?” she asked sarcastically.
“You still want to go out?” He asked astounded.
“Yes after all this I need a drink.” She said. “And you better not say I’m underage.” She said before he could reply as she went back upstairs. Alejandro smiled to himself and poured another drink.
