Reese blocked Jermaine as he went for the basket. He grunted as they clashed and swiped the ball.  He dribbled backwards then as Jermaine came at him jumped and took the shot. The ball arched then went in and whooshed into the basket.  

Reese landed back on his feet then pumped his fist. “Nothing but net.”

“Really.” Jermaine stared at him. 

“What?” 

“You’re so corny.” Jermaine shook his head. “I don’t know how Jazz puts up with you.”

“I could tell you.” Reese smiled wickedly. 

“No.” Jermaine said loudly then in a normal tone. “Dude, that’s my younger sister.”

“Twin sister and only eight minutes apart. And more importantly my future wife.” Reese stared at him. “You do know we have sex right.” 

“Now I need bleach for my brain.” Jermaine grimaced. “I don’t know that I don’t want to know. As far as I am concerned you’re both reading books when you spend time together.” 

“Books.” Reese blinked. 

“Books are good.” Jermaine said. “They are an escape and so much fun.”

“Yeah so is sex.” 

“Books.” Jermaine yelled. 

He went and got the ball. Jermaine turned and threw it at him. Reese caught it and dribbled it again. 

“So you want me to call sex, books.” 

“Yes.” Jermaine came and stood before him. “For my sanity. Hell all of her siblings sanity.”

“You all are so weird.” Reese moved. 

Jermaine blocked him then countered taking the ball. Reese went after him they battled back and forth for it. 

“Ohh…nothing like men playing basketball.” Jasmine said. 

Distracted Reese turned to look at her. She stood beside the court in yellow shorts and a tank top. 

“In your face.” Jermaine said. 

Reese glanced at him and saw him dunk the ball. He rolled his eyes then went over to Jasmine. She met him and they kissed. 

“Come on none of that in basketball.” Jermaine said close behind them.

Reese released her and laughed. Jasmine winked.  

“How about I play you instead.” Jasmine said to Jermaine. 

“It’s been so long do you even remember how.” Jermaine teased. 

“Big words.” Jasmine gaze sharpened.

Recognizing that competitive gleam Reese almost felt sorry for Jermaine. Almost.  He went and sat on the sidelines to watch the siblings square off against each other. Jermaine dribbled the ball back and forth laughing. 

“Give me a sec.” Jasmine said. 

She came to Reese then lowered herself into his lap. She kissed him then pulled back staring into his eyes. 

“I’m gonna kick Jermaine’s ass then we’re going home to…”

“Books.” Jermaine yelled. 

“Is he still with that?” Jasmine laughed. 

“You know about that?” 

“Yeah seems like he and the other siblings got together and agreed it would be called books.” Jasmine shook her head. “Crazy fools.”

 She rose. “I was bout to say Reese and I would go home and have a nice dinner and quite night.” Jasmine pushed at Jermaine. “Not everything is about sex.” 

“Books.” Jermaine said and smiled. 

“Such dork.” 

“Takes one to know one.” Jermaine chuckled. 

“Yeah.” Jasmine stole the ball then made a drive to the basket. She jumped and dunked it. 

She landed turned to Jermaine and lifted and eyebrow. “That’s net.”

“Ohhh… so afraid of you.…Not.” Jermaine went to her. 

Reese relaxed back and watched one of his best friends and his future wife play basketball.
