Okay. I started to ask where everyone was when I heard the low rumble of male voices from the kitchen.
Says the girl who vows she doesn’t need a man.I might be willing to make an exception if he came in a package like that. She let out a gusty sigh. But I think Nikolas is one of a kind.
Roland finished his beer and got another one. Enough of this mushy crap. Let’s watch movies and get drunk since we can’t go out.Sounds like a plan, Peter said.You guys don’t have to stay in, you know. Jordan and I are the ones who have to hide.
Roland, Peter, and Greg laughed at the same time.You two were out of our sight for less than an hour last night, and you started a fight in a room full of demons. Roland shook his head. We’re staying together.
Jordan followed us into the living room, wearing a cocky smile. We didn’t start the fight, but we sure as hell finished it.
I made it two thirds of the way through the first Fast and Furious movie before restless energy sent me prowling around the apartment again. I read the titles of the books in Leo’s bookcase so many times I could have recited them by heart. I checked my email half a dozen times. At one point, I wandered up to the roof for some fresh air, but the cold soon drove me back down again. The others kept shooting me questioning looks, which I ignored. I couldn’t have explained my state of mind to them if I wanted to.The two of them couldn’t have grown apart any more than they have and it’s put a huge strain on their friendship, so Teddy would have moved out anyway.
She is always at my place anyway.My parents totally support her moving in, and Teddy’s mom has been awesome too, glad her daughter will be struggling a lot less.
Do you know what your sister sent me?Shit. My sister is becoming worse than my mother, sending ridiculous gifts, notes, and stupid shit Teddy is never going to use. Like inappropriate stationary, T-shirts with quotes on them, and gold bracelets—with profanity.
