Back to Bridgett’s POV
Jayde looked stunned after Meg explained everything. Meg didn’t go too far into details, but far enough to understand the similarity between our break-ups. It struck me as strange honestly, but I didn’t think much into it. Meg looked angry. I tried to change the subject, but I wasn’t fast enough.
“That’s like, creepy similar!” Jayde noted.
“Can we just change the subject?” Meg asked, giving me the death stare for bringing it up in the first place.
“Bri, I’m sorry about Jake. I never liked him anyway. You’re too good for him.” Trish comforted.
I just shrugged it off, and acted like I didn’t care about the whole breakup. I was still unhappy obviously, but I didn’t want to force Meg to remember the hard time too. It was awkward silence for a while, because nobody knew what to talk about.
In the awkward silence, I starting thinking about how similar the breakups were. Same person, same way, same friend group. I was about to note it, but Trish beat me to it.
“You know, It seems like it’s too much of a coincidence, doesn't it?”
“Yeah, I guess, but it’s Cass. She’s just naturally mean.” Meg counters.
I can see what both of them are saying. Trish has a point about it being incredibly similar, but so does Meg with Cass just being naturally rude. We just all kind of shook it off. Luckily, Meg broke the silence and changed the topic.
For the next hour, we just talked about school, and gossip, and girly stuff like that. It really was taking my mind off of everything, especially when we got out snacks and started a chex mix eating contest. Whoever could fit the most chex mix pieces in their mouths, wins. It was really stupid, but sometimes that’s nice.
Then I got an unexpected text. I was stunned.
