I can help with issues! I’m fucking great at that, Ryker replied, a big grin on his face.
But we couldn’t win it without Brady. And we were going to win it. I wasn’t going to let my dad down.What’s up with Raleigh being all over Jackson Hughs? Gunner asked as he took the seat across from me in World History.
Last night Raleigh had apparently hooked up with Jackson Hughs, the only real soccer player we had at Lawton High School. He moved here from somewhere up north where they care about that shit. So now he was making a name for Lawton in soccer.Don’t care, I replied honestly. When I first saw them together this morning on my way to first period, I stopped and waited for the hurt to come. Hell, for anything to come. After all, I’d been with Raleigh on and off for a year. But I never felt anything. Not one damn thing.Really? Y’all were all over each other yesterday in the hall, Gunner reminded me.
She was all over me, so I let her enjoy herself. That was the truth—almost. Really I just needed the distraction she provided. I’d also been trying to get the memory of Maggie’s kiss off me. It was haunting me and, damn, it was hard to forget.Gunner chuckled. Raleigh keeps looking over here. She’s waiting on a reaction out of you.
She wasn’t getting one. I shrugged and opened my textbook.
That’s cold, Ashby. Like, seriously cold-blooded. That’s why you’re a monster on the field. You just don’t give a shit. If he only knew. I gave a shit about something. Something that was tearing me apart.He didn’t wait for an answer. She stared daggers into his back as she followed him down the hallway. Just because she’d accepted his offer to make sure Fisher wasn’t around didn’t mean she was okay with him ordering her around in her own apartment. This had been a terrible idea.
When she walked into her bedroom, he’d already flung open the closet doors and was running his hands through the crowded coat side of her closet. He turned around well after she was satisfied that there was no one hiding among them.Are all of these coats . . . yours? he asked her. You do realize you live in Los Angeles, right?
Shut up. It gets cold here sometimes. And I go to New York at least once or twice a year.He shook his head, with a smile in his eyes.
