Hey, fancy meeting you here!

^^that was a spoiler to the chapter....

That you will now read.


Groaning in frustration, I turned over on my back.

'Just.... Awkward. We were friends, then we weren't. Nuff said.'

Feeling as if he would press the matter, I added a quick 'gtg, bye.'

Letting out a breath I never knew I was holding, I started some homework.

At around 1 in the afternoon I was done and had finished eating lunch. I decided to take a jog at the park.

Slipping into a pair of running shorts, a t-shirt and sneakers, I grabbed my phone, headphones, and water. I loved to run- it helped clear my mind. Writing a quick note to my parents, I headed out. (Outfit on link in bio) 

"SO TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT, WHAT YOU REALLY REALLY WANT..." Spice girls screamed in my ears as I jogged around the lake in the local park on a beautiful day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, I was running. It was perfect. Sighing, I closed my eyes for a second. In that second, I ran into something. Someone to be exact. My eyes flew open to see a chiseled chest and traveled upwards to hazel eyes. The guy had short brownish hair, a square face, high cheekbones and full lips. I recognized him in a second as my heart twisted.


He blinked.


I nodded hesitantly.

He looked taken aback. "Oh, wasn't expecting you to be here."

"Um, I live in this town, and am 2 blocks away." I pursed my lips.

"Yeah, so...." He scratched the back of his neck awkwardly. Remind me again why I ever dated such a loser?

"What'cha doing here?" I broke the ice.

"Oh, just walking... with my girlfriend." He hastily added at the end.


He had a girlfriend? In two months? Did I really mean that little to him?!

"Oh, that's cool." I remained collected. "Where is she?" 

"Went to the bathroom. So, have you found someone?" He smirked, almost looking smug.

"Actually, yes." The word were out of my mouth before I knew what was happening.

"What's his name?" Trevor's eyes narrowed.




"Yup, he just moved here this year. Kate actually set us up." I explained, ending with a hair flip of my pony.

"Well, I would love to meet him sometime! We should go on a double-date, but that won't be awkward right?" He grinned, faking concern. The twinkle in his eyes told me to say no, Alex is a fake.

I nodded. "You pick the place, I pick the date."

"Jade Dragon."

"Oh, what a coincidence! Alex and my first date was there!" And only date, I silently added.

Trevor gave a me a tight smile. "What date and time?"

"Next Friday, 6:30."

"So, its settled. I'll see then you then, Cassandra."

"Can't wait. Nice to see you again."

And with that I jogged away.

So I have a date. In a week. With my ex-boyfriend. And his REAL girlfriend. And my fake boyfriend.


Is the suspense killing you?
