Another excerpt from "The Eyes of Alexander"...

"“That’s for you,” he said, nodding towards the bag.
I picked it up and peeked inside.  It was my prescription! I flushed crimson.
“Now before you get mad at me, remember that I did this for both of us,” Xander explained in an attempt to obviate my wrath.  “The sooner you get started on those, the sooner we can stop using those damn condoms.”
Had the man no shame? I mean, Lucas and Bennett could probably hear him.  Clearly, he didn't feel the need to be discreet about our sex life.  Well, two can play at that game.
“Lucas, thanks so much for getting my birth control pills!” I called out boldly, enjoying the shocked stares from all three men.  Well, I couldn’t see Lucas’ face, but I saw the backs of his ears redden and Bennett briefly turn to gape at me.  I smugly turned to see Xander’s shocked face. 
“You don’t need to respond to my audacious girlfriend, Lucas,” Xander called out and then turned to me.  “As ever, Miss Windsor, you never cease to surprise me.”  He kissed my cheek proudly.
I was proud of myself, too.  My victory swallowed up my embarrassment and I did a pom-poms cheer in my head.  You go girl!"
