“Because of the finale.”

“Finale?”

“The thing that happened at the end…”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I said innocently. I wanted him to say it. We needed to talk about it. “Maybe you should elaborate.”

            He sighed and I stared at him expectantly.

“Are you really going to make me say it?” he asked.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I repeated.

“Fine. The part where I did what I told you I needed to do but you told me to keep going and I ended up doing it when I really shouldn’t have.”

“Dammit you’re such a prude!” I shouted. “You can’t say you came in my va-jay-jay?”

“I think I walked in on this conversation at the wrong moment,” commented Vicky.

“Great now we’re never going to talk,” I said, exhausted.

“About?” asked Vicky.

“Nothing,” said Yuki and I simultaneously.

“Go ahead and leave me out then,” she said snootily.

            I scoffed and walked away. I couldn’t take sitting at a table with Yuki if he was just going to dance around the conversation. I went and sat alone in the stairwell. I needed a moment to think. I wasn’t sure what I was going to think about but it was easier if I thought alone.

“Hey.”

“What do you want Derwin?” I asked as he sat next to me.

“I don’t know. I saw you here by yourself so I was wondering what’s wrong.”

“It doesn’t concern you.”

“I just wanted to know if you’re ok.”

“I’m not.”

“Wanna talk about it?”

“I would love to but not with you.”

“With who then?”

“Yuki but he is being stupid and refuses to talk about it.”

 “Want me to—.”

“Why are you dating Lacey?” I suddenly interrupted.

“Um… she’s a nice girl.”

“Bullshit.”

“Ok well she can be nice when she wants to be,” he corrected.

“There’s gotta be another reason? Is she blowing you? Is that why people say you’re dating?”

“I thought this conversation was supposed to be about you.” He looked uncomfortable. “So back to you.”

“She is isn’t she?”

“Why do you care?” he asked.

“I don’t.”

“Then stop asking.”

            Truth is it made me crazy. I don’t know why. Lacey alone disgusted me but her with Derwin was a whole new level of disgusting. I shouldn’t have cared about their so called relationship but I did. It made me mad thinking that Lacey was dating my ex and she was most likely doing it to piss me off.

“I have to go,” I said.

“If you need me, any time, just call ok?” he said.

“In your dreams,” I muttered.
