Okay, breaking news. I am most assuredly bi. This weekend proves it.
On Saturday me, Lenny, and 'Drana all hung out together 'out on the town' while Solar and Caspian hung out at Cassie's house; Brighton couldn't be there because he had to help his little brother with his project for the middle school's Science Fair (he's making an interactive three-foot model of a DNA strand). 'Drana was driving (she had an aquamarine Dodge Neon), Lenny was in the passenger seat leaned back all the way, and I was in the back behind 'Drana, facing Lenny and talking.
We started out talking about random stuff, then the topic of what happened at rehearsals the night before came up. Then Lenny sprung something on me.
Lenny: I've noticed you watching us a lot during rehearsals.
'Drana: Yeah... come to think of it, I've seen it, too.
Me: I'm your understudy, 'Drana, I'm supposed to pay attention.
'Drana: You're not Lenny's understudy. You stare at her more than you 'pay attention' to me.
Lenny: Don't think I haven't noticed. *smirks* Because I have noticed.
Lenny: Are you blushing?
'Drana: *looks at me in the rear-view mirror* She is. She's totally blushing.
Me: *violent crimson* I am not!
'Drana: You know what they say about that river in Egypt, Lu...
Me: *muttering mutinously under my breath* I am NOT blushing.
Lenny: If you have to falsify it that adamantly, it's got to be true.
Lenny: Besides, I can feel the heat radiating from up here!
Me: Oh, come on, you can't!
Lenny: *good-naturedly* Can too!
Lenny: Can too times infitity!
Me: Cannot times infinity squared!
Lenny: Can too times infinity to the power of pi!
Me: *stumped for any more one-ups* Shut up!
Lenny: Make me!
So I did. And 'Drana glanced over, and nearly rear-ended a Ford Explorer.
I sat back in my seat.
'Drana: Lenny, did she just kiss you?
Lenny: She totally just kissed me.
'Drana: *lightly* Oh. *shrugs* Okay then.
Me: I'm sorry... I-I don't know what came over me. I didn't intend to -
'Drana: Oh, it's okay. Lenny has that effect on people.
Me: I've noticed. You two are like, snog central.
'Drana: *affably* It's fun.
Me and Lenny: I noticed.
Me: So... you don't MIND that I kissed your girlfriend?
'Drana: Not at all. I know what kind of drawing power she has. And besides, we're in what one might call an open relationship.
Me: You are?
Lenny: Yeah. Basically, we're together, but special circumstances are excused.
'Drana: Like you having a crush on Solar.
Lenny: Yes, yes, and you having a crush on Caspian.
'Drana: And you *looks at me in the mirror again* having a crush on Lenny.
Lenny: It's all good.
'Drana: Completely natural. No harm done.
Me: So I could like, occasionally snog Lenny and you wouldn't mind?
'Drana: Not a bit. I know she's devoted to me.
Lenny: But we're both devoted to other people as well.
'Drana: So it's perfectly fine.
Lenny: We're very open-minded about stuff like this. I like to say that we have a pseudo-anarchistic relationship.
'Drana: And besides, watching your girlfriend snog other people, when you're not the jealous type, is totally hot.
Me: *bewildered* So you're not mad or anything? You're both completely okay with this?
Lenny and 'Drana: Completely.
Lenny: Which is a good thing, because you're a really good kisser.
'Drana: Hey, Lunar?
'Drana: Do you like me, as well?
Me: *quietly; blushing again* Yeah...
'Drana: Oh, excellent! Does this mean that once we find a parking space I can have a go?
Me: *sheepish* Only if you want to.
'Drana *to Lenny* Do I want to?
Lenny: *nodding her head furiously* Beyond a shadow of a doubt. This girl can SNOG.
And thus went the evening. I got hugs and kisses in abundance from both of them, and we went back to Lenny's and cuddled together in her pillow nest with practically all nine of her cats.
