That was a good question.
Who can't i live without?
I tried imagining what it would be like if Collin where to leave, i couldn't see it. Then i tried with Kyle, and i could imagine life without him. But it still felt wrong.
I knew i could only have one though, the one i don't chose wont stick around.
Jake was still waiting for an answer.
"Collin." I said.
"Its just, something feels wrong about it."
"Is it what you were saying earlier?" Jake asked.
Technically Collin killed himself.
Kyle did too but it made sense because of the whole 'I'm trying to kill Collin even though he is already dead'.
Collins different, i didn't he would be the type of person to do that.
We were both silent.
Scarlet took that as a cue that we were done talking, she handed me a glass of lemonade.
"Thanks." I said.
Jakes face light up.
"I have an idea!"
I looked at him.
"How about we test them, with the help of Scarlet." He said clearly proud.
Scarlet looked confused.
"Boy problems." Jake whispered to her.
I rolled my eyes.
"Scarlet can flirt with them both and if they truly care about you they wont flirt back." Jake explained.
"Would you be ok with this?" I asked Scarlet.
"Sounds like a plan." I said.
We decided to follow around Collin and wait for the perfect moment for Scarlet to go in.
Collin was sitting on a park bench looking at the lake.
We put a mic and Scarlet so we could hear what they were saying.
She walked up to him and sat down.
"Hey!" She said.
"Hi." He said barely looking up.
"Whats a cutie like you doing here all by yourself?" She said.
She was good.
"Just thinking." He said shrugging.
He sounded unamused, thats good right?
"About what?" She asked scooting closer.
"About a girl actually." he said.
"Does that girl happen to be me?" She asked.
"Oh no, no offence or anything." He said.
"Oh." She said.
She didn't seem to know what to say next.
"Whats she like?" She finally asked.
What was she doing?
"Shes beautiful, smart, sweet, funny, caring...perfect." He said.
"She sounds like a keeper." Scarlet said. "Why do you sound so sad though?"
"She also has feelings for another guy and I'm scared she is going to pick him over me." He said in a sad voice.
My heart broke.
"You just have to prove to her that your the right one, and i don't think that will be very hard." She said getting up.
"Thanks." He said.
"No problem." She said walking away.
"He really cares about you." She said.
"Lets go find Kyle." Jake said.
We found him sitting at a booth in burger king all alone.
Scarlet went up to him.
"Hey there, anyone sitting here?" She asked.
"Umm no." Kyle said.
She sat next to him.
"How come you sitting here all alone?" She asked. "No girlfriend?"
"Nope." Kyle said smiling.
"I don't believe that." Scarlet said giggling.
"Like seriously did you look at yourself?" She said holding his arm.
He blushed a bit.
And my heart broke a bit.
Scarlet looked at her watch.
"Damn i have to go." She got up an stopped at the last minute, "can i get your number?" She asked.
"Sure!" He said and gave it to her.
My heart sank.
