territorial ↠ benny rodriguez
No one believed it, but Benny Rodriguez finally found something he cared about more than baseball.
"Y'know what, Benny?!" I was irritated. What? I can't talk to another guy?! Ridiculous.
"Yes, Lacey?" He fired back.
"You get jealous too easily! You get so aggravated when I talk to certain guys."
"I'm not jealous, okay?!"
"Yes you are!" Benny let out a harsh sigh.
"No, Lacey! I'm just territorial. Jealous is when you want something that ain't yours. Territorial is protecting what already is yours."
All I could do was stand there- frozen. But then, I just hugged him. Tight.
