"So you were a fucking billionaire?" Ryder asked. I nodded.

"Fuck that. You had sex with Zendaya? Normani? Chloe Bailey? Ariana Grande?" Hank said. I laughed and nodded.

"But you can't tell anyone. I'm supposed to be low key." I said.

"Oh we gotchu. We done buried dead bodies before so it's not like we snitch or nothing." Ryder said. Hank nodded.

"Oh and the girls loved you. Even after Dinah owned your ass." Hank said.

"Oh that's good." I said.

"Nah they really liked you." He said.

"Okay?" I said.

"Oh yeah. They gone ruin you." Ryder laughed.

"So tomorrow is the bonfire right?" I asked.

"You know it. Friday night bonfires be crazy." Hank said.

"Yeah I remember. I only ever went to one though." I said.

———

"Coming!" I called as I walked to the door. I opened it to see Dinah.

"Hey." She said quietly.

"Hey." I said.

"Can I come in?" She asked.

"Yeah of course." I said. She walked in and I shut the door behind her. "My rooms over here."

We went to my bedroom, and I closed my door.

"Oh let me put a shirt on." I said.

"You don't have to do all that. Not like I haven't seen all of you before." She said.

"Oh yeah." I said sitting beside her on the bed.

"How are your ribs?" She asked.

"Uh they still hurt like a bitch, and I can't take pain meds." I said. 

"You always were a big baby." She said giving me slight smile.

"My side is purple." I said holding up my arm. She ran her fingers over my bruise. I winced.

"Tell me what I gotta do to please you
Baby, anything you say I'll do
Cause I only wanna make you happy
From the bottom of my heart, it's true." She read. "In blue ink."

"Yeah." I said quietly.

"You got our song tattooed on you." She whispered.

"On my 18th. It was my first." I told her.

"Why didn't you call me?" Dinah asked.

"I don't know honestly. I mean as soon as the plane touched down in LA my life was crazy. I was sent to a fucking Swedish boarding school then I was in Harvard then MIT then I was one of the heads of my dad's company. And I knew that if I called you I'd fall right back in love and then I'd leave everything that I had just built behind. I couldn't do that. Especially when my sister was born. I was like I can't ever leave this place. And I'm sorry for hurting you. I swear I am. And yeah I have a big ass ego now. It sucks. And I did leave Ariana after promising her everything. Even though it wasn't my choice. I still had to leave her. But this is about you. I'm just really sorry I never reached out to you. It's my biggest regret. You know even though I stopped being in love with you I never stopped loving you. You were my first love, my first everything. I can't just stop loving you. Even if you hate me." I said.

"I don't hate you. I was just really confused last night. I mean you just popped out of nowhere and it threw me off. But I could never hate you. You know I couldn't." She said.
