"I have a proposition," kaswal na sabi ni Ashley.
"What?" tanong ni Bobby.
"Tutal iniwan ka na ni Kate at hindi na magiging akin kahit kailan si Jacob...Wala kang girlfriend, wala rin akong boyfriend--" Ashley smiled playfully. "Pwedeng tayo na lang?"
Bobby narrowed his eyes on Ashley. "Is this some kind of a prank, Ashley?"
Bobby laughed quietly and shook his head, then smirked at Ashley.
Why would he believe anyway? Ashley was a bigtime bully and became the HFU's heartless bitch when she tried to ruin the relationship of two of the most famous campus royalties in HFU.
"You're single, I am single. You're crazy, I'm crazier. You're a jerk, I'm a bitch. We could make an exceptionally good team," pangungumbinsi ni Ashley. "Just for fun."
Ashley did not know why she wanted to be in a make-believe relationship, with a make-believe boyfriend even if she knew Bobby will never be hers. Just for fun of it.
Itinaas ni Ashley ang kamay nang hindi magsalita si Bobby. "I promise I won't be clingy. I know you still love Kate and as soon as Kate comes back into your life, I'm out of the picture. Agad-agad. Pronto."
"You're crazy," naiiling na wika ni Bobby.
I am. Let's have fun and make crazy things together." Ashley looked directly into Bobby's eyes. "Bobby, will you be my make-believe boyfriend?"
Napailing si Bobby, then he sighed. "Okay, fine. I am now your make-believe boyfriend. Pero sa oras na makipagbalikan sa akin si Kate--"
"I'm out of the picture."
Some crazy act. Because Bobby was Jacob's bestfriend. And Jacob was her ultimate college love whom she knew will never be hers.
Pero pumayag siya sa isang relasyong siya ang talo sa umpisa pa lang.
Because she fell in love with Bobby along the way. And Kate came back to take back what was originally hers.
Ashley knew she was doomed.
Dahil nagmahal na naman siya ng isang lalaking hindi na naman magiging kanya kahit kailan.
