12. Mistakes

 

“Arella!”

I turned, feeling stupidly disappointed when I realised it was Corbett who has called my name.

Still, I pulled on a smile and stopped walking, waiting for him to catch up.

He grinned as he got closer, running a hand through his black hair so it no longer covered his dark brown eyes.

Strange how technically him and Damon had the same features. Black hair, dark eyes and strong jaws yet could look so completely different.

Corbett was well built but lithe. Damon however was chunkier, the kind of guy who could pick you up with one hand if he wished.

  “Have you thought about it?” he asked, looking slightly nervous.

Thought about what? I thought and tried to not let my confusion show.

  “Uh, yeah.”

He smiled sheepishly.

  “So is that a yes you’ve thought about it or a yes to the question?”

What the freaking hell was the question?!

  “I’ve thought about it.” I nodded, still smiling the fake smile.

  “So…?”

Then it clicked.

Corbett was asking me out.

Now really I knew what the answer should be.

If the memory of being asked out by someone made you feel uncomfortable, if the thought of kissing them made you quickly shove it out of your mind…. Well, you weren’t star-crossed lovers.

I like to think I would have answered honestly, who knows, maybe I would have.

But then I looked over Corbett’s shoulder and saw Damon.

He leaned against the side of a building, a little smirk on his lips, a slightly wavy piece of hair falling over his eyes.

My stomach twisted and folded on itself.

I couldn’t do this, I couldn’t fall for someone clearly so bad for me.

Corbett shifted his weight nervously.

  “Arella?”

I looked him in the eye, mustered up every acting technique I knew and gave him a smile.

  “Yeah. I’ll be your girlfriend Corbett.”

I couldn’t fall in love with someone I wasn’t going out with.

I wouldn’t.

I should have known better.
