Chapter 23

“Oh my god,” I whispered and turned around, only to run slap bang into Cooper’s chest. He looked over my head at the guy at the bottom of the aisle and then looked back at me with a confused expression.

“What’s the matter?” he asked, glancing behind me again.

“That’s Daryl!” I hissed, he just gave me a blank expression.

“Yeah, Daryl Tinsley,” he offered, causing me to gape at him. Cooper just shrugged and turned me around so that we could go over to the till but I shook my head.

“My ex!” I exclaimed and Cooper stopped, he looked over my distressed face and then laughed.

“It’s no big deal, calm down and come on,” he hooked his arm through mine but I dug my heels into the ground.

“No! We didn’t leave on good terms, he hates me and I hate him!” I paused, looking up at Cooper as he grabbed another jar of sauce.

“Wait, how’d you know him?” I asked. Cooper shrugged again, looking over at Daryl.

“We used to go to school together, I don’t like him very much either.”

I took a deep breath and ran my hand through my fringe.

“Okay, just act cool,” I whispered and Cooper laughed again.

“Calm down! Its fine, we’ll just ignore him.”

I looked over to notice that Daryl had seen us and he was glaring. If looks could kill, I’d of died a thousand times over.

“Allison, Cooper,” he greeted coolly when we had made our way over to the tills. Cooper wrapped an arm around my shoulder and tugged me to his side possessively.

I watched as Daryl’s long blonde hair tousled when he ran his hand through it, clearly flustered.

“Daryl,” I answered in the same icy tone.

Daryl tried to make himself look big against Cooper but Cooper was stood completely relaxed at my side.

“I see that you got yourself a new boy toy,” he said, cocking his head to the side and I narrowed my eyes. I wasn’t in the mood for dealing with a jealous ex boyfriend who was convinced that I had been cheating on him for our entire relationship.

“I upgraded,” I replied simply and he grinned, showing his straight white teeth against his pale lips.

“Don’t be surprised if you see her sucking face with another guy, Cooper,” Daryl sniffed, glancing at Cooper who had stiffened beside me.

“Oh, grow up, I don’t cheat and we both know that, you were just paranoid,” I snapped and Daryl laughed. I mentally kicked myself, knowing that I had given him the reaction that he was looking for.

“Wow, who set light to your tampon?” Daryl exclaimed, setting his hand to his chest in a hurt manner and I felt my anger boil in my stomach. Just when I was about to answer, Cooper cut in.
