Chapter Fourteen (Part 1)


“Mosquito repellent?”


“Flashlight, pillows and marshmallows?”

“Check, check aaaaand check!”

I nodded and threw the writing pad over at Lea who was jumping from foot to foot, barely able to contain her excitement.

“We’ve got everything so we’re ready. Now all we have to do is wait for Drew to show up.” I sat down on the bed, reaching over for my phone as I expected it to go off any second. Drew had said he’d give me a ring when he was close to the house but so far, I’d gotten no call and it was driving me insane with Lea bopping up and down in excitement for the camping trip.

When I’d come home from the date with Zach looking like I’d gotten struck by thunder, Lea had forced me for the second time that day into telling her what had happened. And when I’d finally revealed the truth that Zach had broken to me, she fist-pumped, actually fist-pumped like a kid high on sugar and went, “Boo yeah!”

It didn’t take me long after that to realize that Lea had known all along, after Jet told her. She then had gone on to explain that Jet, who’d become good friends with Jensen, had told him everything. Pretty much everyone knew, including Drew, apart from me and no one had taken on the decency to tell me. You would think I’d be angry about that but I could understand why. The very mention of Jensen had me on the verge of an angry meltdown; someone justifying his actions and trying to convince me it hadn’t been him would have been worse than hell itself.

“You know that Jensen’s coming on the trip as well?”

I looked over at Lea and she was biting her nails, with that sneaky little grin of hers on her face. Trying to act cool, I shrugged and went, “I know, I don’t care.”

“Sure you don’t. You know what I think? I think you like him but you just don’t want to admit it to yoursel-”

The End
