James and I stopped at a diner on our way to my house. We’re both hungry and we couldn’t take it anymore.
“Some game huh.” He started.
“Yeah.” I replied.
“But I got to admit, what you did to Allie, was hilarious.” He smiled.
I chuckled. “Yeah, but I feel guilty.”
“Are you?” he raised an eyebrow and has this knowing smile on his face.
“What’s that suppose to mean?”
“Come on, don’t play dumb with me, I know the real reason why you did what you did, and everybody sees that. So you’re perfectly justified.”
I gave him a confused look.
“Oh come on! You’re jealous!” he exclaimed. “And you have the right to be.”
“Yeah, but she’s nice. She just really got on my nerves.”
He laughed bitterly.
“I know I don’t have the right to say this and I’m not in any position… but I think you should know. Ever since we were kids, Allie, has this little crush on Mason, and yes she’s older than us, we watched as her crush grew into something more, and I’ll tell you this, she’s sort of obsessed with him, and as you can see. He’s still oblivious to that fact. He still thinks of her as our friend which is both a good thing and bad thing.”
I nod in agreement.
I felt my phone vibrate and saw Mason’s face flashing through the screen. I didn’t want to talk to him right now so I turned it off.
“Is that Mason?” James inquired.
“Yeah. I don’t want to talk to him right now.”
“Well, I better get you home; don’t want to make him mad.” He smiled.
The drive home was short and silent. I knew there was a reason why I don’t like her, why I feel that there’s something off with her. I’m always right to trust my instincts.
I bid James goodbye and went inside, straight to my room. I didn’t bother greeting anyone, I know for sure that Alex is the only one home, and he’s busy with his own stuff. When I got inside my room, I took a shower and changed into more comfortable clothing.
Just when I’m about to fall asleep, Mason barged into my room. He looks pissed off.
“Where have you been? Why weren’t you answering my calls? I looked everywhere for you!” he said. “Do you know how worried I was?”
“Oh really? Now you remember me? I think earlier you had an amnesia and forgot all about your girlfriend.” I snapped.
He can’t just show up here, hot headed, demanding an explanation from me, when he was the one who left me on that field in the first place.
“Oh, so it’s my fault? I wasn’t the one who threw a baseball on someone’s chest. I’m sorry I took care of the problem you caused!” he shouted.
“How dare you pin this on me? I wasn’t the one who can’t see that Allie is in love with me! Jesus Christ Mason! How dumb are you? Everybody around you sees that she doesn’t see you only as a friend, she wants more!”
“How many times do I have to tell you, she’s just a friend!”
“Friend my ass Mason, she’s in love with you and you’re too engrossed on the fact that she’s just a friend that you can’t see it!”
