Trouble: Doubled

Just as Liz thought everything was back to normal, things take a twist and slowly start falling down hill again. Even though Hayes is not allowed to be around her, he still somehow manages to screw with her head and mess with all of her relationships.... Or is Liz letting her past come back to haunt her?

10. Clear Perspective

    Jack was sitting with Blond Jack at lunch today, he's been avoiding me all day. I don't mind sitting alone, I like it, in fact I prefer it but Blond Jack kept giving me 'are you okay?' looks. I just nod. About 10 minutes into lunch, Nash sat in front of me. “What are you doing?” I ask, my mouth filled with grapes.
    He smiled. “Sitting with you?”
    “Why?”
    “You look lonely.”
    “I'm... okay, Nash. You can go back to where you came from?”
    “See the thing is, that's about 10 hours away. So I can't really do that.”
    I give him a confused look.
    “We're from North Carolina, so I'd have to drive 10 hours to get away from you.”
    I try to hide my smile. “Cool. What part?”
    “Greensboro.”
    I nod and look around the room but stop when I see Hayes staring at us. His face was blank but it didn't seem like he was staring of into space, he was actually watching us. He was sitting with Hazel and her ground of friends, he had his arm around her as he sat back acting all cool. Hazel and her friends were too busy laughing and probably making fun of someone to look over at Nash and I. Thank god she didn't look over at us though. She's probably be really mad and I'm not sure what she would do, I just know that I didn't feel like fighting with her right now. I look at Nash, he's looking down at his phone and just as he looks up, I look down at my food.
    “What?” he smiled again.
    I shake my head. “Nothing.”
    “Were you staring at me?”
    “What?” I chuckled. “No.”
    “Why were you staring at me?”
    “I wasn't!”
    He gives me a look. The same look Hayes gave me the first time he came over to my house and I turned him down.
    I felt my lips almost tingle and my heart break. “Why the sudden interest in me, Nash?” I snapped. My whole mood changed and I actually felt kinda bad.
    He put his phone on the table and looked shocked. “It's not sudden.” his shoulders fell.
    I bite the inside of my cheek and look around the cafeteria again, Hayes is still watching us but now Hazel is watching too. I look at my food then back at Nash again. “I'm sorry.” I mumble. “I'm.. it's just.. I'm with Jack, I thought you knew that?”
    “If you guys are together then why isn't he sitting with you right now.” he pointed to Jack and Jack behind him. “And why did it seem like you guys broke up yesterday?”
    I sigh.
    “It's my brother, isn't it?”
    I shake my head. “I wish I new anymore.”
    “I can make you happy, Liz.”
    “I am happy... with Jack.”
    He raised his eyebrow. “No, you know what I mean.”
    “Still... he makes me happy enough.”
    “Sounds like not to the full capacity though, why don't you give me a chance and I can show you what you're missing.” he gave me a smirk.
    “I have no desire to be with you, ever. We're friends, that's it. I hope I'm not leading you on, but I'm telling you straight and forward now, I don't wanna date you, I don't wanna have sex with you, I don't wanna do anything with you. Okay?”
    He nods slowly. “Oh, alright, I'm sorry.”
    “I'm not mad at you, you just need to know this and not get any idea's.”
    “Right, I understand.” he shrugged. He looked over at Hayes and Hazel and just as Nash looked back over at me, they got up and started walking over here.
    Oh great, I though to myself, here we go again.
