“Spin the bottle? You know we’re adults right? Not eighth graders.” Nora asked incredulously.
“Yeah come on, it’ll be fun!” Nate said, holding up an empty bottle to the group and trying desperately to not make eye contact with Zari, the newest addition to their friend group.
Sara and Ava’s apartment had quickly become the group's go to hang out spot on the weekends and this Friday night was no different. The alcohol was flowing freely and a fairly intoxicated Nate was holding up an empty bottle and looking more and more embarrassed at his suggestion.
“What’s next seven minutes in heaven?” Lena asked. “Plus half the people here are in a relationship.”
“Seven minutes in heaven. Not a terrible idea.” Ray said quietly, nudging Nora lightly.
Nora blushed and looked away clearing her throat. “Lena’s right though, half the people here are dating each other.”
All eyes looked to Sara, Ava, Kara, and Lena. Sara sighed and looked at Ava and they both giggled. “Alright I promise not to get jealous.” Sara said, holding up her cup in a makeshift toast before adding, “as long as your kisses stay on her face and nowhere else!”
The room groaned and Lena straight out laughed. “Pretty sure you didn’t need to clarify that Lance.”
Sara looked offended for a moment. “Are you kidding, look at her.” Sara looked to a now blushing and ticked off Ava and took her hand. “A kiss could never be enough.” Sara looked into her eyes longingly before moving her gaze to the group and glaring. “But it will be for you.” Ava shook her head incredulously and kissed Sara’s cheek with a quiet ‘geez’ under her breath before nodding her concession to the group.
“I’m fine with it too. It sounds fun.” Kara said, then looking to Lena with a questioning gaze.
Lena swallowed hard and looked around. These were her close friends, not rivals for Kara’s heart. Her alpha was pacing and displeased but she was a groan adult and Kara was right, it did sound kinda fun. “Okay okay.”
Everyone moved to sit in a circle on the floor, Lena pulling Kara by the hand to sit on her lap. The omega yelped before putting her arms around Lena’s shoulders and giggling. Nate sat next to Zari and nudged her lightly. “What about you? Your boyfriend won’t get mad will he?”
“How very patriarchal of you.” Zari said flatly and sat with a sigh. “But no. It’d be hard for my boyfriend to get jealous since he doesn’t exist.”
Her cold response left Nate hard pressed to look anywhere but the ground. With tinted cheeks he placed to bottle on the ground and cleared his throat. “Alright who’s first?”
Everyone looked around the circle for a minute before Ray put up his hands in surrender. “Alright, I volunteer as tribute.” He gave the bottle a hard spin and everyone watched it with anticipation.
The bottle slowed and looked like it was going to stop on a blushing Nora but instead it just passed her to point right at Nate. Everyone in the circle laughed and Ray pointed at Nate trying to hide his minor disappointment. “Get ready for me big guy.” He said grinning.
Nate laughed and opened up his arms. Ray leaned over and gave his fellow beta a light peck to which Nate jokingly waved his hand in front of his nose. “Your breath reeks dude.” Ray sheepishly went to smell his breath and Nate laughed. “I’m just fucking with you.”
“Asshole.” Ray said laughing and returning to his seat. Zari gave Nate a curious look to which he just shrugged.
Ray looked to Nora next to him. “Your turn.”
Nora spun the bottle, and as it slowed to a stop she looked up the neck to Lena and Kara who was still on her lap. “Why are you two sharing a seat? Which one am I supposed to kiss?”
Everyone laughed again and with no hesitation Kara said, “Here, you kiss me. Next time it lands on us it’ll be Lena’s turn.”
Sara looked to Kara and Lena and leaned into Ava and said quietly, “Kara’s a genius.” To which Ava had to bite back a snort.
“Do I have to kiss you while you’re on Lena’s lap?” Nora asked. To which Lena gripped Kara’s waist firmly.
Kara turned toward Nora while remaining on Lena’s lap, not seeming to mind the alpha’s hold on her waist. “It’s easier for her this way.” Kara said smiling.
“Alright.” Nora shrugged and crawled across the circle toward Kara and Lena. She stopped in front of the pair and stood on her knees and took Kara’s cheek lightly in her hand. The two locked eyes for a moment before Nora pulled her in and leaned in slightly. The kiss was gentle and soft until Kara moved her hands to rest behind Nora’s neck and deepened it slightly. The group ‘oohed’ at them and Lena’s eyes bugged out slightly and her breathing got deeper. The two pressed together closer and a small moan left Kara’s throat. They broke apart and Nora smiled, wiping her bottom lip subtly. “That good, huh?”
Kara was blushing madly and leaned back into Lena. “It was okay.” Nora chuckled and moved back into her spot. Kara pressed her face into Lena’s neck and groaned so quietly that only Lena could hear. “I can feel you, y’know.” She whispered to her alpha.
Lena was slightly ashamed at her very prominent boner pressing against Kara and she just gripped Kara’s waist tighter and could feel the omega smiling into her neck. Both were surprised at Lena’s reaction, expecting jealousy or maybe anger but in her defence the kiss was hot and hearing Kara moan never failed to turn Lena on.
“Geez, Lena rein it in.” Sara mutters next to them covering her nose slightly, referring to the other alpha’s pheromones.
“Alright my turn.” Nate says spinning the bottle.
“Don’t be too disappointed if it doesn’t land on me.” Ray said in jest, making the whole room laugh.
The bottle just passed Nate himself and landed on Zari who had been quiet through most of the game. The room ‘oohed’ childishly at the two and Zari looked up at a blushing Nate. He rubbed the back of his neck nervously. “You don’t have to if you don’t want to.” He stammered.
Zari just scoffed and with that classic alpha confidence she gripped Nate’s neck and pulled him down to her and kissed him. It was swift but deep and left Nate dazed and catching up to what had just happened. By the time he registered that Zari had kissed him she was already taking her turn and spinning the bottle.
To everyone’s surprise and entertainment the bottle landed on Nate. He gave his best effort at a charming smile, still feeling rather embarrassed. “Did you do that on purpose?”
Zari just scoffed again and pulled Nate in for the second time. This time, however, he was prepared and lightly gripped the back of her neck. The kiss was longer this time and just as deep as before. It was enough to leave Nate breathless when they broke apart and even the cool collected Zari had a slight tint to her cheeks.
“Alright alright you two, quit hogging the game.” Ava laughed and moved to take her turn. She spun and beamed when the bottle landed on Sara. Everyone else in the room groaned.
The alpha returned her smile. “Remember that thing I said before about people needing to keep their lips only on your face? Disregard it.” Sara said, pulling Ava into her space.
“Oh yeah?” Ava whispered hotly, her lips nearly touching Sara’s.
“Yeah,” Sara said nodding and ever so slowly moving to connect their lips.
“Here we go.” Ray groaned.
Sara and Ava kissed deeply, Sara’s hands moving to circle Ava’s waist and pull the omega onto her lap. The two were quickly lost in their own world not caring for their friends jesting and protests. Ava pushed her tongue into Sara’s mouth invading her space and challenging her alpha in a way she knew Sara couldn’t resist. The alpha growled and pulled them both down to the floor with Ava below her.
“Oh, for crying out loud! Every damn time!” Nora said, throwing her hands up and moving to stand.
The rest followed suit and Kara laughed. “At least they usually sneak off to do it in private.”
“Yeah,” Lena added, “who’s idea was it to play this game? We can’t give these two any excuses.”
Everyone moved toward the front door just as the two still rolling around on the floor were shamelessly beginning to peel their clothes off. “Sorry guys my bad.” Nate said. “First round’s on me.” They all quickly piled out, ready to keep the party going already prepared with an inevitable back up plan.
