Aren’t you gonna get that? I asked.
Because nothing about this feels like it’s ever going to be okay.I thought what I felt after Cain betrayed me was bad. But this, with Charly…it’s a million times more painful.
I’m so, so sorry, I tell Nick on the phone.Charly, it’s not your fault.It is. It’s all my fault. But I don’t bother arguing with him. I know Nick will never see the bad in me. Just like I never would in him.
After Vaughn walked out on me, I was left there in his hotel suite with Jack and Alex. Uncomfortable didn’t even cut it. So, I walked out without a word to either of them and came to my hotel.The room was too silent, so I made the stupid mistake of putting the TV on. The first thing that came on was E! News, and the presenters were discussing Vaughn and me. The moment I heard the word cheater, I switched it off and rang Nick.
Are they still out there? I ask.
The press? Yeah, there’s a bunch of them hanging around the front of our building.Yeah, she met him after a concert a couple years ago. I went over to her desk and touched a picture of the two of us at a dance from our freshman year. My hair looked ridiculous because I’d let her do it.
That’s pretty fancy. He set the picture down and looked at me. So… what are we doing here?I don’t know. I looked away from the pictures to survey the room. I thought I might find something here.
Was Jane even living here before she died? Bobby asked. I mean, when she left rehab?I think so. I chewed the inside of my cheek, trying to remember what I’d read on the internet. I could go ask her parents, but from the sounds of Mr. Kress’s yelling, now wouldn’t be a good time.
