↳ user thx for taking one for the team but i was enjoying my matt and aurora dreams and u just ruined that. i hope u burn.
impractical jokers, bronk, and boomer are genuinely the only things keeping aurora going right now.
she lays on her bed on her side, her arms wrapped around bronk and body covered with a comforter as she lays on the squismallow and watches impractical jokers from her computer. boomer lays at the end of the bed sleeping peacefully.
the party was last night and todays saturday. she should be out doing something or making plans with someone in the group chat but no, she's here. she's here with mascara smeared underneath her eyes and mascara stains on bronk because of her stuffing her face into him in an attempt of trying to suffocate herself! she is just doing great. truly.
she refuses to cry any longer, not wanting to feel like more of a baby than she already does. she rarely cries because of her strong hatred for it but matt has really gotten under her skin now.
her face immediately scrunches up at the thought of his name and she throws her head back into bronk. she's trying to not think of him. what the fuck is she doing.
she groans loudly as her face is smooshed against the squishmallow. she hasn't even been able to get a good laugh out of watching impractical jokers all because this stupid fucking guy has ruined her this badly. fuck guys.
after pressing her face against the squishmallow for a full minute, making it a tad harder to inhale from her nose, she sighs and raises her head up. she turns back on her side and dreadfully reaches for her phone on the table next to her bed.
she's had her phone on do not disturb since she got home last night but since she genuinely can't resist, she's been creeping through the 'while in do not disturb' notification wall.
some of the group has texted her asking what happened and why she randomly disappeared last night but those aren't any texts that matter to her. no, not those ones at least.
once she has her phone in hand, she scrolls through the notification wall until she reaches the ones just sitting there as she's too afraid to actually even open it.
dumb fucking bitch i hate
i'm sorry aurora
dumb fucking bitch i hate
i was just jealous & wasn't thinking clearly i'm sorry
dumb fucking bitch i hate
aurora reads over the words in the texts multiple times before sighing, powering her phone off, and throwing it face-down against her bed.
the contact name makes her want to attempt to suffocate herself with bronk again because she had changed it to that just a week and a half ago. she did it to remind herself that she's supposed to hate him because she had been forgetting all about it recently.
it seems like she won't need the reminder anymore though, the way she feels right now being enough. god, isn't it crazy how you can genuinely feel the hurt in your heart when something truly hurts you?
she frowns, trying to focus on impractical jokers and ignore the way painful thoughts of matt spin around in her head like a mirrorball. she bites at her nails and resists the urge to slap herself every time the brunette boy pops back into her mind which is every other second.
she watches as sal takes his punishment as tonight's big loser and almost chuckles because matt was definitely last nights big loser. then she wants to die because oh my god, stop thinking about matt!
"aurora," her thoughts are suddenly cut off as she looks up to see elijah opening her bedroom door. he glances over her position on the bed and scrunches his eyebrows together. "it's like three pm, jesus fuck. when was the last time you left your bed?"
aurora opens her mouth for a second to presumedly speak but then closes it just as fast. "fuck you, eli. go away."
he just narrows his eyes at her. "it's a saturday. why are you even here?" he asks, aurora already groaning of annoyance. "shouldn't you be hanging out with your boyfri-"
auroras face immediately scrunches up in anger at the mention of the boy she is extremely upset about that never even technically was her boyfriend. she sits up, grabs bronk from behind her, and instantly throws him right at elijah's face. "i don't have a boyfriend," she exclaims.
elijah blinks as the stuffed animal bounces off his face and onto the floor. "god fucking damn, that was harsher than usual," he sighs, reaching down and picking up bronk before walking to the end of her bed. "what'd matt do now?"
auroras eyes narrow before she leans further on the bed and snatches bronk from her brothers hands. elijah just rolls his eyes in response as she brings bronk against her chest. "nothing," she answers shortly.
"there is literal mascara stains on bronk," he points out, aurora instantly gasping and turning bronk away from his view. "now, be for real, what'd he do? if it's that bad, it's my job to talk to him, yknow."
"it was just something stupid," she sighs, not wanting to actually tell him about it because she knows how elijah can be to boys she's dated, even if she didn't officially date the person.
"ah," elijah says, stepping to the side and starting to pet boomer who's still laid on the bed. "you're not gonna tell me, are you?"
"no," she answers truthfully, crossing her arms as she looks at him. "i'm not letting you do the whole overprotective brother thing to him."
elijah rolls his eyes, raising his hand off of boomer and taking a step back. "well, jokes on you because i already knew you wouldn't tell me if i was by myself," he says pointedly, aurora's eyebrows furrowing until venus and raven walk casually through her bedroom door that's still opened. "that's why i texted venus and raven."
"we weren't even at the party but we can still tell something happened with matt," venus explains to aurora as elijah shuts the door behind them.
"yeah," raven chimes in before plopping down on the bed next to boomer and tilting her head at aurora. "so spill."
aurora sighs and looks to elijah as he crosses his arms and leans against the bedroom door with a shrug. "what'd matty boy do this time?"
"YOU WHAT?" chris and nicks jaws both drop in unison as they stand up from their seats on the couch.
matt, who's been standing in front of them, runs a hand through his hair. "i kissed someone else," he repeats in a mutter, ashamed to admit it.
"oh my god, matt, if i wasn't your brother, i think i'd genuinely slap the shit out of you right now," nick tells him straight up, sighing and sitting back down with now a face of extreme disappointment.
"what the fuck!" chris exclaims as he's still standing up. matt's face scrunches up at their aggregated expressions as chris begins speaking again, "i thought you guys agreed you weren't gonna see anyone else?"
matt's face awkwardly twists up and he rubs at the back of his neck. "yeah, um... we did."
"and you kissed someone else?!" chris shrieks, sitting back down and throwing his arms out. "the fuck is going on with you, matt? i thought you only had eyes for rory."
"i did—i do!" he instantly responds in a rush, receiving blank looks from his brothers. "i just saw her really close with ross and i assumed the worst, yknow? so then i like.. i don't know... i just wanted to get back at her in a way i guess?"
nicks eyebrows furrow. "close with ross? what does that even mean?"
"like they were about to kiss," he explains shortly, nick and chris both sharing a look. "but aurora said she pushed him off before they could and uh.. i didn't really um... believe her... so after she stormed off, i asked ross and he said the same thing."
the pair on the couch go silent for a moment, unsure of what to say, before chris sighs and speaks up, "what'd rory say about you kissing someone else?"
"yeah and who'd you even kiss?" nick adds in his own question.
matt crosses his arms. "rory was really, really, really mad. she said she was done with me," he tells them, face scrunching up slightly as he says the words. chris just clicks his tongue and shakes his head before matt answers nicks question as well, "and i kissed this becca girl, the one we went to elementary school with i'm pretty sure."
nicks eyes widen and his face falls. "no," he denies. "matt, no."
"bro, you kissed becca monroe?" chris emphasizes, his lips parted.
"yeah...?" matt answers questionably.
"ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID."
"HE WHAT?" venus and raven both simultaneously shout in shock as elijah just shakes his head disappointedly.
"he kissed someone else," aurora repeats with a roll of her eyes, ignoring the way her heart literally aches from the words.
the group has all moved to the living room now and aurora sits on the middle of the loveseat with boomer laying his head on her lap while elijah, venus, and raven sit on the big couch.
"men," elijah mutters with disgust, continuing to shake his head as aurora just narrows her eyes at him.
"okay, elijah, okay," she responds, not even bothering to comment on the obvious irony to his words and moving on. "but like i get why he did, i guess. he thought i kissed ross so.."
"i'm so confused on who this ross guy even is. like where did he come from? how has he caused this much chaos?" raven questions with a sigh.
"i don't even know," aurora groans, leaning further back against the couch. "this is all so stupid. i didn't even like him. i liked matt until he went and messed it all up."
"woah, woah, woah," venus sits up from where she was laying on raven. "holy shit, you like matt? like you don't hate him?"
"i did," she frowns, now feeling ashamed by it. "now i'm just back to square one because he fucked every thing up and the thought of his face makes me pissed."
"did he at least seem apologetic?" raven questions with a frown.
"yeah, i guess," aurora sighs. "i haven't really actually talked to him since i stormed off."
there's a small few beats of silence before elijah speaks up, "i think you should talk to him."
"really?" aurora questions, beginning to bite at her nails like she has been all day. she's always valued her family and more importantly, her brothers opinion the most. "you think so?"
"yeah," elijah says honestly with a shrug. "i know you've always held a grudge against him because of the whole fifth grade thing but i've seen how he was with you when you were younger, and i've seen how he is with you now. i think he's a good guy and i just don't think he'd hurt you like that without reasoning. he probably feels like shit, i don't know."
"okay woah, look at you go," raven chuckles at elijah's words before turning to look at aurora. "i agree completely honestly."
aurora falls silent for a moment before turning to venus. "what about you, vee?"
"um..." she trails off for a moment. "i had a different idea but that works too."
aurora narrows her eyes suspiciously and elijah groans, "oh, here we go."
"shut up," venus rolls her eyes with a small laugh before facing her body towards aurora on the other couch. "i just think like.. he hurt you really bad, yknow? he kissed someone else. i know matt and i know he probably feels like shit but.. i don't know. you should just give him a taste of his own medicine, make him really regret it. like talk to him yeah, but don't give him another chance until he's on his knees begging and shit."
"god fucking damn, vee," elijah chuckles slightly. "you're evil."
venus just shrugs as aurora sits on the couch with a frown on her face. she doesn't know what to do, she just know she's hurt. she's very hurt because of matt and it's not the first time he's hurt her like this before.
she sits there and ponders silently for a few moments before there's a sudden knock on her front door. auroras head immediately snaps up and the group on the other couch share a look before glancing at aurora.
"so... how do you want to go about this, rory?" raven hesitantly asks.
