We drove to the bowling alley in silence, I waited for someone to explain what was going on but no one did.
By the time we got there there was an awkwardness that remained thick enough to cut with a knife.
There was never an awkward moment between Trine and I as far as I can remember. This was new to me, I didn't know how to approach her with this hanging in the air.
I watched her talk to the shoe guy laughing as he made a joke.
Luke stood behind her nodding along as Savannah stood beside me chatting about her car breaking down the other day without warning. ".... the mechanic said it'll cost me $600 to fix! Can you believe that? Ugh! I hate mechanics! He's totally ripping me off!"
"Did you ever think that maybe if you'd actually payed attention to what was wrong you'd understand why it'll cost $600?" I suggested watching Trine carry two pairs of shoes to our table while Luke followed behind her with two more. She smiled at him as he said something. I couldn't help but feel jealous. I don't know why, it's not like anything would ever happen between the two of them the hated each other.
But then why was he here?
I couldn't help the nagging feeling that something was going on with those two, but like an idiot I chose to ignore it.
Savannah was bowling, poorly I might add.... and Luke went to get drinks leaving Trine and I alone at the table.
Trine opened her mouth as if to say something before shutting it again.
I watched her for what felt like the millionth time that night trying to figure out what she was hiding.
"Cal-" she said before snapping her mouth shut again.
"Trine, tell me what's going on. You hate bowling, and you hate Luke even more."
She looked away before speaking as if avoiding my reaction. "Just don't freak out okay?" She looked over at me waiting for my reply.
I smiled knowing nothing she ever said could change how I feel. "Never." I said confidently.
Her eyes turned soft for a second "I'm seeing Luke." She spoke softly flinching slightly as she said it.
"Well obviously, your not blind." I said shaking my head, not accepting what she just said.
"That's not what I meant Calum." She gave me a pleading look begging me to understand.
"But you hate each other." I barely spoke above a whisper, my heart was caught in my throat. How could he? He knew how I felt.
"We didn't plan it, it kinda just happened." She spoke as if trying to justify her actions.
I tried my hardest not to freak out like she asked. "You didn't do anything wrong, I hope you two are happy." I lied, I couldn't give a rats ass how happy Luke was anymore, but I did however care about Trines happiness.
She smiled. "Thank you. You have no idea how happy that makes me."
I nodded hoping this day would end already.
