I wrote this a while ago and was thinking if anybody wanted to read it they could :)
Disclaimer: Totally one hundred percent NOT mine…never have been…sadly never will be.
A/N: Hope you all really enjoy this story. Sorry it’s so late coming but school has been crazy lately and I have been out of town anyway…I don’t know how it will end up yet, but I am thinking it will be Betty & Becks all the way…with Daniel friendship…kind of different for me but hey its worth a try.
Two for the Price of One
Betty was sitting at her house on a Friday night watching television and eating popcorn when her phone rang. Ten bucks says it’s Daniel, she thought to herself laughing. If anyone had actually been around to take that bet it was a bet Betty would definitely have won.
“Hello.” Betty said only half paying attention, after all what could be so important at 12:00 on a Friday night.
“Is this Betty Suarez?” a voice she didn’t recognize asked her.
“Yes it is. Why?” she questioned with a frown.
“My name is Brad and I’m calling from The Pink Flamingo, there is a man here named Daniel Meade. He says you’re his assistant.”
“I am. Does he need me?” Betty questioned wondering why this man was calling her if Daniel was coherent enough to himself.
“Well that depends. Does he make a habit of dancing on tables, taking his shirt off, and calling himself Superman?” the man asked in an amused yet slightly frightened sounding voice.
“I’ll be right there.” Betty said grabbing her coat and rushing out the door while simultaneously calling Daniels driver to come get her and take her to the bar where her friend was currently incapacitated.
…………Across town at The Pink Flamingo………….
“Hey why didn’t you tell Daniels assistant that I was here too?” Becks questioned the bartender with a frown.
“Because Daniel asked me not to.” Brad responded.
Becks looked at his friend accusingly. “Hey why didn’t you want bartender dude to tell your assistant I was with you?” He questioned words slurring together toward the end of his sentence.
“Her name is Betty first off and well…she doesn’t like you and I didn’t want to risk that she wouldn’t help me out of dislike of you.” He responded smiling and slurring words also.
Becks smiled a drunk but nonetheless alluring, to any woman, smile. “All women like me Daniel.”
“Betty doesn’t.” was Daniels simple response.
Betty walked into the bar irritated to say the least. Daniel had gotten himself drunk again and she was forced to clean up after him. Not to mention it had taken her an hour to get here and she was hoping to catch the end of the Sound of Music on TV but now that hope was shot.
The fact that Daniels friend Becks, irritating and womanizing Becks, was here too was just icing on the cake.
“Betty!” Daniel called out when he saw her. He had spent the last hour getting even drunker than he already was, and was now pulling her into a very tight hug.
“Daniel. You smell…well…bad.”
“You really know how to make a guy feel good.” He said letting her go.
“I’m sorry, but you smell like alcohol.” She said allowing a slight smile to cross her lips when she saw a look of ‘no duh’ cross his handsome face.
“Well come on lets get you home.” She said grabbing his arm and leading the way toward the door.
“Whattt about…Becks?” Daniel asked his eyes glazed over and his words having trouble escaping his lips.
“…We can take him home…where did he go?” Betty questioned looking around for Daniels friend.
“Baathrooom, I think.” He responded. He was right. Only seconds later Becks strolled out of the bathroom and even drunk as he was he still somehow managed to look incredible doing so.
“Hey, It’s Betty right?” he said once he arrived next to them.
“Yey it is, now come on were leaving.” She said taking his arm in much the same fashion as she had taken Daniels only moments before.
“Wheere are we going?” he questioned as she led them both outside to the town car that waited.
“Daniels, then yours, now come on.” She said as she helped them both into the town car, taking the seat between them.
“I want to stay with Danny tonight.” Becks said as they pulled up to Daniels apartment.
“Don’t call me Danny!” Daniel responded almost leaping over Betty in an attempt to jump on his inebriated friend. Becks, in usual man displaying dominance fashion, responded by returning the favor, only being drunk and clumsy he failed and instead found himself lying on Betty’s lap. She squealed with fright.
“Sorrry…didn’t mean to.” Becks said as he continued to lie there. Honestly she is a lot more comfortable than I thought…and I am really sleepy.
“Well could you get off?!” Betty said her cheeks turning rose petal pink. Why do I feel like I like him? He’s Daniel’s friend and he is a total player…but still I can’t deny this feeling…or can I?
Snapping back into reality he got off and out of the car. “Sorry, I really didn’t mean to.” He said stumbling toward the front door of the apartment.
“It’s okay…I was just surprised that’s all.” Betty responded.
Daniel decided to speak now. “Night Betty, see you Monday morning okay?”
“Yeah of course…oh and Daniel…be careful okay.” She said with a worried smile.
“I will.” He responded hugging her, and engulfing her in the smell of his cologne and his last drink.
“No fair…I want one too!” Becks cried out from behind Daniel. Betty rolled her eyes, but he began approaching her. Oh my gosh…is he really going to hug me? Betty wondered feeling slightly uncomfortable with the idea and yet liking it all at the same time.
I shouldn’t do this…Becks thought even as he approached her and leaned in for the hug. This is a bad idea…He continued to lean in until his arms wrapped completely around her…She was warm and comforting just like he had never imagined she would be. He was beginning to think weird things as he continued to hug her pulling her in closer to deepen the hug and the warmth, things he had never thought before about any woman, much less Daniels ‘ugly’ assistant. He might actually…like her…and that scared him. No he thought reassuring himself…it’s just the beer it has gotten to my head…I like hot, easy women that will succumb easy with no effort and you never have to talk to them again. I like one night stands…I’m not the relationship kind of guy…Just then he heard a cough that broke him from his thoughts. It was Betty.
“Okay…that’s good…I really need to get home now.” She said turning redder by the second…so was Daniel. If there was one person in this world, besides his mom, that Daniel would do absolutely anything to protect it was Betty. And Becks was bad news, he should know a few years ago he was him.
“Becks come on lets go inside.” Daniel said grabbing his friends arm and whispering in his ear, “What was that?” but Becks turned away back towards Betty.
“What time is it?” he asked her, seemingly oblivious to Daniels previous question.
“2:30.” Betty said reading her watch.
“Too late for you to go home by yourself, it’s not safe.” Becks said looking at Daniel. Though Daniel didn’t like the idea of him, Becks, and Betty staying the night together, he couldn’t let Betty go home at this time of night. It just wasn’t safe.
“Becks is right Betty, it’s not safe, why don’t you stay here tonight?”
“No…Daniel really I couldn’t.”
“Betty. Please. Just stay.” Daniel said looking her in the eyes with that puppy dog look that had no doubt gotten him whatever he wanted from his mother as a child, and of course Betty wasn’t immune to it.
“Fine…but I need to call my dad.” She responded.
Becks smiled…Daniel frowned…and Betty’s cheeks again reddened. And all three of them simultaneously thought…This is a bad idea…
