|Lucy's POV|

I texted Sting.

Hey, I need to talk to you right now. Can we meet after school, at SquareBucks?

I got a reply soon after.

Yea sure.

I put on my school uniform and brushed my hair. I did my make up and made myself look sightable.

I got to SquareBucks 5 min earlier than planned, and I was very anxious. But this was something I had to do.

When Sting got here, I immediately stood up. He spotted me and walked over.

The first thing I said was, "Im so sorry!"

"Huh? What? Why are you sorry?"

"Sting. You like Yukino right?"

He turned red, "H-huh? What are you talking about? I like you! We're dating right?"

"You don't need to lie for my sake. It's really obvious you do."

"It is? I'm sorry Lucy..."

"Don't be. Sting, you're really nice you know that? Let's break up."

"Huh?"

"I'm sorry. I knew you liked Yukino, but I still forced myself to like you. I must've caused problems between you and Yukino."

"I uh..."

"You knew right?"

"Knew what?"

"You knew... my true feelings right?"

Sting kind of smiled. "Yeah, I did. But I thought I would help... I'm guessing I didn't?"

"No, you did. Im going to apologize to Yukino now."

"Ah, good luck!"

"You too! You better make Yukino happy!"

I waved and ran out to find Yukino.

Where would she be? I called her. She picked up on the first ring.

"Lucy! What happened?"

"I need to talk to you right now! Where are you?"

"I'm at the park."

"Stay where you are. I'm coming!"

I got to the park as quickly as I could.

"Yukino!" I yelled, at the sight of her.

"Lucy!"

"Yukino, I'm so sorry!"

"Huh?"

"You like Sting right?"

"H-huh? I- no- I- well-"

"I'm sorry! I knew you liked Stung but I told myself you didn't! I probably hurt you a lot! I'm sorry!"

"No... it's fine..."

"You're not mad?"

"Well of course I'm a little mad..."

"How can I make it up to you?"

"Well... I just... I kinda feel like slapping you right now..."

"Do it!"

"Huh?"

"I deserve a slap! Just do it!"

"W-Well here I go..."

She slapped me. This was the first time that my friend actually slapped me, and it felt weird. It hurt, but it kind of felt refreshing at the same time.
