"What?" Sky and I say at the same time.

"That doesn't make any sense," Sky looks at me. "You said you didn't ask her out."

"Because I didn't!" I huff. "I thought you hated Kyle?"

"I do," she shrugs.

"I'm so confused."

"Babe, you don't remember?" Taylor flutters her eyes at me. "You asked me two days ago."

"No I didn't"

"So, you're going to lie to save your ass in front of the emo?" She rolls her eyes.

What the hell is going on? I am so confused right now. I haven't talked to Taylor since I found out that she blocked Sky's number. And since when is Kyle and Taylor plotting together? I know, honestly, that Sky didn't agree to anything with Kyle. That's absolutely preposterous. I don't understand what they're trying to do.

"Alex?" Sky furrows her eyebrows. I sigh I don't know what to say in front of Sky that they won't counter-lie. And I can't just pull her aside, because then it'll look like I'm trying to lie.

"Wow, okay." She huffs.

"Kyle can you take me home?" she stands up.

"Yeah, sure." Kyle half-smiled.

I put my hand on her arm. "Sky, don't leave with him. Please," I whisper.

"I just need to go home and talk to him." She whispers, slowly jerking her arm away from me.

Sky turns her back to me and I close my eyes. I can't believe she just believed him. She believed him. Even after everything, I still lose.

"Can I have some?" Taylor smile.

"No," I mumble. I pick the food off the tray and find my way to the exit. I can't believe my first date with her was ruined. Why? Why does every moment have to be ruined? Why can't I just have a drama-free moment with Sky?

Texting Sky was the worst decision I ever made. I should've never told her I liked her. I should've never asked for her number. I should've puncher Kyle that first night. This whole thing was a mistake. Sky doesn't like me and she never will. Why do I keep trying?

I set the food down in the passenger seat and rest my forehead on the steering wheel. Do I go home? I can't believe she left with Kyle. Why?!

[SKY]

Kyle puts the car in park and shuts off the engine. I grab my bag off the floor and out it in my lap.

"I was surprised you chose me."

"I didn't choose you, Kyle."

"Then why are you here?" He raises his eyebrow.

"So you know to leave me alone, Kyle. I'm tired of you lying and trying to turn Alex and I against each other. It's stupid."

"So you're going to believe the person who was lying about his identity the whole time?"

"Yeah, actually."

"Fine. When you get your heart broken by Alex, don't cry to me."

"I won't." I get out of the car and close shut the door.

I know Alex didn't ask Taylor and I know I didn't tell Kyle anything about Alex and I. I don't understand how he found out about the date or why Taylor was there. I'm so confused. Kyle is such a creep, honestly. He's trying so hard to get in between Alex and I that he's making up ridiculous lies.

I'm just going to text Alex and explain that I'm not mad at him. I didn't go home with Kyle because I believe him. I'm going to tell him that I went with Kyle so I could tell him to stop. Alex shouldn't be mad right? We'll just go on a second date some other time.

I reach into my bag and search for my phone. I can't find my stupid phone. I know I had it in my bag, because I checked the time when I got into Kyle's ca-

Shit.

****

[KYLE]

She thinks she can get rid of me that easily? Hell no. Because, I probably going to destroy her just like I destroy her brother's pathetic life. As long as she's lived and going to the same school with me. I still couldn't erased Ashton's reflection. She reminds me a lot of her fucking brother.

The new problem now is Alex. Alex use to be my best friend but him being with Sky is like digging his own funeral.

I couldn't stand anyone who's having a connection with Ashton nor his sister or his entire family and Alex you are now verified to be in my list.

I come to stop at a red light and glance at the passenger seat. What is that? I reach over and grab the item off the floor. A phone? It must be Sky's. I swipe it to the right and it opens up. Silly girl, don't you know better than to leave your phone unlocked?

I open up her message and see unread message from Alex.

Alex: sky?

Alex: why did you leave with him?

Alex: are you mad at me?

Alex: I'm so confused

Alex: Sky please

Alex: you don't believe him, do you?

Alex: sky answer me

Alex: should I come over?

A new message pops up as I'm reading.

Alex: are you home yet?

Oh, Alex. You're in for a wake-up call.

Me: hi alex

Alex: where are you?

Me: look Alex. There's something I've been wanting to tell you.

Alex: what?

Me: I really, really, really fucking hate you. Honestly, did you actually think I cared for you at all? You just some loser who buys me shit. I can't stand the sight of you, Alex. Your voice, your snotty attitude, your personality. I hate everything about you. I would never date you or like you. You're a loser. Don't ever talk to me again asshole.

One mission accomplished. I smile and set the phone down on the passenger seat. Geez Sky, you're so mean to the poor boy.
