Officially my new best guy friend
I was breathing hard and felt lightheaded. “April are you okay?” Justin asked. I nodded, but I knew my face gave me away. “Come on let’s get you outside.” He took my elbow and gently pushed me outside. The second I smelled the fresh air and pine needles I relaxed. “What’s wrong?” I don’t know why, but I told him why I wasn’t exactly fond of Allison. When I finished he just laughed. “Classic Allison. She can’t stand to see something that she can’t have. So she goes through
whatever she can do, to take it.” That’s when I laughed. “Seems like you’ve had experience.” He just smiled. “Sort of. A couple years back Allison took interest in me. When I told her I wasn’t interested she went through whatever she could to get me. She practically threw herself at me. Eventually she gave up, but now she isn’t exactly happy about my existence.” I laughed and he smiled when I did. “You’re funny. I like you.” He chuckled and said, “I get the feeling were going to be good friends.” I nodded and said, “Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner. Guy in the plaid shirt.” We both laughed and that’s how Nick found us. “Hey what are you guys doing out here.” His voice held suspicion, but if I was laughing harder I wouldn’t even have noticed. “I started to feel a little sick, so Justin brought me outside.” Justin nodded encouragingly. “But, your okay now?” He asked. I nodded and he smiled. “Good let’s go inside.” He took my hand before I could object. I looked back, but Justin was already gone.
