hey guys, sorry that the last chapter was so short and boring, I was in a rush but I wanted to update it for you guys! Hope you like this chapter(;
Ryan is super cute, and so nice too! And hey, I'm single now and he is too, so what's stopping me?
Oh, right. I still love Justin...oops. Plus Ryan would never go after me knowing that Justin still loves me too, or maybe he's over me already? No he can't be. What am I saying? I want him to be over me.
They finish their video game, and it was silent. It was awkward.
I looked at Ryan and he was already looking at me, I quickly look away. I look at him again and he's mouthing something to Justin but immediately stops when he sees that I'm looking.
"Um is there something I should know about?" I ask.
"Er, don't worry about it," Justin said.
"I'm obviously gonna worry about it if you guys are talking about me and I'm right here," I say.
"I don't think you would like what we are saying," Ryan said.
"I don't care!"
"Okay, fine. I saw Ryan look at you and I saw you look at him, and I know that's your flirty look so I told him to back off," Justin said.
"Why would you tell him that? We're not dating anymore Justin, get over me and yourself, I can do whatever I want," I say. Shit that was mean, and he looks hurt.
"I'm sorry Justin, I didn't mean to be mean, it just slipped out," I say.
"It's ok. I needed to hear it, if you guys wanna be alone, Fredo and I can leave," Justin says while getting up. Fredo gets up too and they walk out.
"Well that was awkward," Ryan said. I laughed and nodded.
"Soooooo, what should we do?" he asks.
"Hmmm, tell me about yourself." I say.
"You really wanna know?" he asks. I nod.
(Making this up, this is not what Ryan is actually like, lol) "Well, when I was 5, my dad died in a car crash, and my mom lost it. She went crazy. Literally. So she ended up leaving, and left me and my older sister who was 8 at the time, all by ourself. My sister Maggie managed to call my aunt and uncle who lived really far from us, so we had to spend two nights on our own. So I grew up with my aunt and uncle and when I met Justin, my life changed for the better," he said.
"Ryan that's awful! I'm so sorry!" I say while hugging him and rubbing his back.
"But hey, at least I'm happy now," he says and smiles. I smile back. We catch each other staring into each others eyes. He leans in and so do I. We kiss, but I immediately pull away. He looks confused.
"I'm so sorry Ryan, you did nothing wrong, it's just..."
"You still love Justin?" he asks.
"Yeah, how'd you know that?"
"Ari, it's pretty obvious you guys are in love. The only reason I acted like I was into you was because I knew you'd realize that you still love Justin, don't get me wrong, you're gorgeous and so sweet. But you're my best friend's ex. That's just wrong," he says.
"Well thanks I guess," I say and hug him.
"I'm gonna go talk to Justin," I say and walk away
