I love you. I think? | ongoing
Murder, Mystery, and Love. What's up?
"When are you going to get it through your head that I don't hate you?! I don't think you're some weird nerd! And I want to be in your life! Why can't you see that?" Jay yells.
"Wait. What!? All this time Jay Wood, all this time, I tried so hard! And you, you!" I scream.
"You don't have to try! You've already won!" he shouts.
He comes to me and puts his hands on my shoulders as I process his words.
"I care about you, more than you think." he says softly.
I've run out of words to say to him. I know what I'm feeling, but I don't want to accept it.
"Fine. This is what I get. What was I thinking? Possibly falling in love? I'm so stupid."
Jay runs a hand through his silky hair and doesn't meet my eyes, turns to the door, and walks out, leaving me frozen in place.
"Asher listen to me! You know we stick together. You know we're-"
"We're what?" he pushes.
"I've liked you since day one. You're smart enough to know what I'm feeling. But what about you? You all of a sudden become a 'teenage detective' and now I don't mean anything to you?"
"I never said that."
"So, tell me, right here, right now, how do you feel towards me?"
"I-I don't know. Asher,"
"Nope. I'm not helping you this time, it's on you. You feel for me? Come to me. I'm done giving you all the answers. Use your brain, King."
And he's gone.
19-year-old best friends, Sapphire and Evelyn, are now in college. Not your typical teenagers.
Murder. Shocking re-opened case that has them wondering. Suicide? Dead or alive?
Confusing mixed signals. 2 boys getting in their heads. Love? Hate? Friendship?
With lies, secrets, and unknown pasts, there's bound to be trouble.
