He seems pretty happy to me, I said.
I’ll speak to the hospital first thing in the morning. Find out how much it was and pay him back.She gave me a skeptical stare. With what? You sent your mom on that cruise with the rest of your inheritance.
I’m refinancing the house. Don’t worry about it. And if you speak a word of this to my mother, I’ll tell Caleb all about your little Winnie the Pooh phobia!Pipe down, girl! Shit, I wasn’t going to tell her, but you better keep your mouth shut. You swore on it! Last thing I need is Caleb waking me up with that creepy bear! Her entire body shuddered.You’re crazy, you know that? I laughed, then took a bite of my sandwich.
We ate quietly for a while, watching the people around us shuffle in over their lunch breaks, until she looked over at me, her expression clouded with hesitation.What happened the other night? We saw you and Logan kissing, and then those girls. What did they say?
They were looking to go another round with him.
Ugh, I thought that might have been the case from the way you stormed out. I tried to go after you, but Logan was already out the door by the time I got up.She sat down and leaned forward, elbows resting on her thighs, waiting for me to explain myself. He cares about you. You should have seen him the night of the accident. He was wrecked. I’ve never seen a grown man so broken. Maybe you should give him a chance.
I looked up at her, exasperated. A chance to what? Completely incinerate what’s left of my shattered heart? No thanks.Her posture resigned, shoulders slumping forward. Whatever happened between you guys, he’s trying. He cares about you. He won’t tell me or even Caleb what he did, but whatever it was, he hates himself for it. That has to be worth something.
No, it wasn’t. I shot her a look that told her to drop it. If only she knew. As much as I wanted to tell her, I couldn’t stomach the idea of repeating that night out loud.I hit the channel button again and again before landing on a rerun of Sex and the City. Perfect. More women examining how much men sucked.
