7. you don't even know

Parker's arm is around a taller, older-looking, supermodel-bodied, girl. Her dark hair cascades down her back and she's wearing a tight red cocktail dress. He's laughing with her and I catch Brynn wiping at her eyes at the drink table. I run over to her and she grabs my hand.

"I'm a joke. I'm a joke." She repeats, sobbing.

"What happened? Who is that?" I ask her, my voice calm and soft.

"Apparently his girlfriend from years ago who's been writing letters to him. I guess they're a thing." She cries. "I need to get out of here."

I take a deep breath and lead her over to where Jess and Alex are.

"Alex, Brynn and I are going to go on a walk. We'll try to be back in time for the surprise for your mom." I smile calmly and there's concern in Jess's eyes.

She leaps up and Alex nods her on. She gives him a quick peck on the cheek and follows Brynn and I outside. Brynn bursts into tears and I pull her into a hug.

"What happened? I don't understand." Jess asks, concerned and confused.

"Brynn has feelings for Parker and now he's got his arm around his supermodel ex's waist. I don't know why she's here or why Parker's back into her. All I know is he hurt my best friend." I explain and Jess suddenly seems furious.

"He's an awful human being! What a horrible thing to do!" She screams as Parker comes running after us.

"Brynn! Brynn!" He yells and grabs for her arm.

She pulls away and I roll my eyes at him.

"We've got this. You can get back to touching your supermodel." I snap and Parker steps back.

"What? Regan?" He asks as if we know her name.

"It's not like that." He starts but Jess cuts him off.

"You don't get to explain. You don't get to try. You get to walk away." She comments, her voice cold and harsh.

"But Regan's not my girlfriend or my supermodel. Whatever that means." Parker replies. "She's my cousin who went to Alex's old school and used to be one of his best friends. I was hugging her because I hadn't seen her in so long." Parker finishes and runs a hand through his hair.

Brynn whips her head around and wraps her fingers in her golden locks.

"Really?" She asks quietly.

"Of course." Parker replies and his face gets closer to Brynn's.

He reaches his hand forward and gently kisses Brynn on the lips. That night, Brynn drives Jess and me home.

"Want to stay the night?" I ask them.

"I have to watch my sister since I was gone all day. My parents went out on a date." Jess says, wishing she could.

"I wish, but I promised my mom I'd be home for family game night. She gets upset when I'm out every night." Brynn says sadly.

I nod and head into the house to find my mom laying on the couch. She's flipping through a magazine and the news is on.

"Exciting night Summer?" My mom asks and boy, oh boy she doesn't even know.
