I flinched again as Collin said that. “Say something.” He ordered softly and then again in a bark.
I stood frozen, afraid that if I moved I’d break into a million pieces because of the heaviness of this issue. Collin waited a little bit but not for long. He took a step toward me until he was in my face.
“I said, I love you.” He repeated with a glare but it wasn’t the kind of love I was looking for. “Cathy, I know you love me too.”
“No!” I screamed in his face and he reached to slap me, hard. I fell back but caught myself before I hit the ground. Hands were at my shoulders anyway, helping me.
I looked up at Jason. His face was a mask of anger as he set me up right. “You are like ten different kinds of stupid.”
I’ll take that as a compliment.
Jason turned to glare at Collin. “And you! What the hell is wrong with you, man?! Do-you-have-like-mental-problems?!” Jason sounded out each word like he was talking to a kindergartener.
“Can't we settle this with our fists?” Collin growled viciously.
“Gladly but don't get disappointed.”
