"Leah! Hey, wait a second."

I kept walking. I didn't have anything to say to her. Her footsteps were quick behind me. When she touched my arm, I flinched.

"I need to explain," she said. "It wasn't what it looked like."

I whirled around, and pulled out of her grip. "It wasn't?" I snapped. "Then, please, tell me. What did it look like? Because it looked to me as though you were screwing around with—"

"Don't," Dakota hissed, looking around. "Leah, no one can know."

"But he's so hot."

"You're seventeen!" I yelled.
