3. Drama Between The Boys
About a week after that night, I found myself on the porch eating my salad for lunch. I saw Ridge in his yard with Jordan and Tyler. Ridge looked upset and he was yelling at them. Jordan pushed Ridge and Tyler threw his hands onto his face. He tilts his head back. I stare at them, wondering what was going on. Jordan starts to yell at Tyler and Tyler yelled back. Jordan punches Tyler in the throat and Tyler falls on the ground. My heart stops.
I run outside and to them. I crouch down by Tyler and help him sit up. "What the hell is wrong with you guys?!" I ask. Ridge starts to walk away. I get up and grab him by the shirt. "Tell me what happened." I say. He pushes me on the ground. Tyler runs over and tackles Ridge.
Jordan helps me up and I start to walk away. "Lindsey...Wait!" He yells. I turn to face Jordan. "It's my fault. Don't hate Ridge or Tyler for this." I squint and cross my arms. "I want to know why all of you started fighting. That's all." I say, walking closer to him. "We were fighting because of you..." he said. Tyler and Ridge walk up beside Jordan. "Why because of me?" I ask. I was too confused.
"Lindsey..." Ridge starts. But Jordan holds his hand out to him. "We like you." Jordan says, looking straight into my eyes. I freeze. My cheeks burn badly. I look at Ridge, Jordan, then Tyler. I turn and walk away.
I run once I knew they were staring. I run so fast, my heart was thrumming and my feet were on fire. I kept running and felt someone tug my shoulder. I look back to see Tyler. I stop and he lets go of my shoulder. "I'm sorry Lindsey. This isn't Jordan's fault. It was mine. I really like you..." he says. I nod. "I'm sorry I took it a wrong way. It's sweet you'd fight for me. But really with your friends?" I say, looking into his eyes and getting hypnotized again.
It could've been worse. I mean yeah, Tyler got punched in the throat, Ridge is bruised...Jordan is hurt, but there are crazy things people do for love.
