(RECAP)

 Mason noticed my sudden change of mood and his tone suddenly softened. "Lily..." he whispered.

"Hm?" I hummed back, avoiding his gaze.

"I was listening to every word you said. And that girl I was talking about?.." he started, meeting my gaze. "Was you."

Chapter 28

Boy did I feel like the jerk. I held onto his sincere gaze, feeling so stupid for throwing a fit over nothing. He must think I'm retarded!! He looked as if he was about to say something else, but I quickly interrupted.

"O-oh.. I'm sorry Mason.." I mumbled, trying to pry my eyes away from his look.

Mason opened his mouth as if to reply, then simply shrugged it off while starting to drive again. "Eh. That's OK." he said flatly.

Oh no. Is he mad at me? He probably thinks I'm a complete jerk!

"Do you forgive me?" I asked, almost in a whisper due to being afraid of his answer.

"Well... I don't know. I mean what you said really hurt, hit me right here." he said, holding his hand against his chest on the right side.

I wanted to laugh, but I couldn't tell if he was serious. "Umm Mason.. I'm pretty sure your hearts on the left side of your chest." I giggled, feeling relieved the argument had settled.

Mason opened his eyes wide, "What are you talking about? The hearts on the right side, it only looks left on diagrams and dissections." He stated matter-of-factly.

Is he serious? I searched his face for any humor, but he had a dead serious face. He was even giving me the 'How could you not know??' look.

Maybe I've been wrong?

Of course, I began to second guess myself.

"Are you serious??" I asked, worriedly searching around for my heartbeat.

I sighed and slumped down relieved when I felt my heart beat on the left side. Phew!! I thought I was wrong there for a second.

I turned to Mason to correct him only to see him hiding his face while shaking with laughter. "You so gullible!" he laughed.

Wow! "Jerk!" I shouted, playfully whacking him on the arm.

"Ooo, hey! Don't hit, it's not my fault you believed it!" he chuckled, struggling to keep his eyes on the rode.

"That was a mean move!" I pointed out, going red with embarrassment. My brain always let me down and deceived me at times like this. So not fair!

"I was just trying to lighten up the mood!" he defended, a smile still plastered on his face. I gave him a hard look then turned to the side window and smiled when he wasn't paying attention.

We arrived at my house soon after that. During the rest of the car ride Mason kept opening his mouth as if he was going to say something, but instead he'd shake his head and go silent..

I sighed and glanced at my house, the living room light was still on but the curtains were closed. I could faintly make out a figure standing by the window pacing. Was my father that worried?

"Here we are," Mason informed, bringing the car to a complete stop.

"Yep... Well thank you Mason," I answered, smiling at him gratefully before opening my door to get out.

"Woahh hey," Mason objected as he got out of the car as well. "Wait up!" he called after me at I made my way to the stairs.

"What are you doing?" I questioned, giving Mason a look of disbelief.
