He was going to pay. I don't care if I get sent to jail. He broke my best friend's heart and thinks he can get away with it. Not in my book.

I entered the store and got a shopping cart. Walking around, I bought 20 cans of silly string, a giant bottle of water, 10 bags of cotton balls, and a tube of red lipstick.

As I laid the items out on the conveyer belt, I felt a pair of eyes on me. I turned to see none other than my best friend's ex-boyfriend's best friend.

In case that was confusing, the man who was looking straight at me with a knowing look in his eyes, is Mr. Jerkface 2.0.

"What do you want?" I sneered.

"Oh I don't want anything but I do know what you want." He smirked, eyes flicking towards the cans of silly string.

"Oh yeah? And what might that be?" I asked with my arms folded across my chest.

"Oh come on, Maddy. How much more obvious can you be? Who buys that much silly string at eight o'clock at night?"

"Someone who has a very strange artistic dream." I tried.

He just shook his head and laughed.

"Fine you caught me red handed. What are you gonna do? Tell on me?" I challenged.

"No. I'm gonna move your target."

"What?" I asked bewildered.

"Come on. Get your stuff. We've got some talking to do." He motioned towards my bags and then I followed him out to the parking lot.

He hopped into the back of his black truck opening the tool box and pulling out two beanbags and a giant quilt.

"That's what you keep in there?"

"Well duh. What else is it for?"

"Never mind," I huffed as he set up the bean bags next to each other in the bed of his truck.

He positioned himself in one and motioned for me to sit in the other.

After I had sat down, he laid the blanket across our laps.

"Logan didn't do anything wrong."

"Are you trying to say that my friend lied to me?"

"I'm trying to say that your friend didn't have all the facts and may have jumped to conclusions instead of hearing my friend out." He said putting emphasis on the word 'my'.

I leaned back on my beanbag and motioned for him to continue and explain himself.

"Remember the night they fought?"

"Yes."

"What exactly do you remember happening?"

"Well I talked to them for a while and then they started watching a movie and I went to bed. Next thing I know I'm being woken up by a door being slammed and Rachel bursts into my room in tears."

"What did Rachel tell you happened?"

"She said that they were watching a movie and she fell asleep and when she woke up Logan wasn't there. She walked around trying to find him and heard some angry voices whispering at each other by the front door and went to see what it was. When she turned the corner she saw Logan totally knock out Peter. When Peter came to he said it was because he had threatened to tell her about how Logan cheated and he got mad." The more I thought about it, the more things were making sense.
