I looked down at my phone and opened the lock screen.

Alex: Hey, Isy. I was a bit curious about why you left after I told you I like Ashley...
I looked up at Romy and showed her my phone. She frowned a bit and I decided to get her opinion.
"Should I tell him?"
"If you want to, but wouldn't that require you telling him that you like him?"
I bit my lip and looked down at my phone again. I somehow managed to have my shaky fingers type:
Oh, well it's because we don't always get along. Sometimes we fight, and she always makes my friends turn against me/steal them from me. I just didn't want her to take you awa- to steal you as a friend.
That last part I put on purpose, hinting something without it being 100% certain. I sighed and waited for a reply.
