"Where are you going?" Brian asked me again.
"out" I said firmly and walked past him. that's when he grabbed my hand, I was forced to turn to face him. "I said where are you going."
"I just need to talk to a friend." I freed my hand.
"I see. so you like Jaden that much? you're willing to go out this late just to talk to him?! " We were in the hallway and he's shouting. is he not embarrassed?
"I like him as a friend! why do you keep on judging our friendship?! He just wanna talk!" I backfired at him. I was pissed. I not sure what is the main reason thou.
"I am a guy Reid! I can see his intentions! Unlike you! You're a gay! you're way too feminine to see things in a guys' perspective! So why don't you just shut up and listen to me!!!"
A tear fall in my left cheek. What? I was hurt by what he said. "I know I'm a gay. you don't need to rub it in my face. Wh-"
Brian cut me " That's not what I meant! Arghh! Just ... just please listen to me. I want to protect you!" he cupped my cheeks and wipe my tears...
Why... why does he act like this? He acts way too romantic towards me then the next blink of an eye he's having sex with other girl, then he'll be all romantic again. what the fvck is our relationship? I can't understand!
"What am I to you?" I said to him calmly. I need to keep my cool. I shed tears in front of him that's embarrassing.
"What do you mean? you're my sister's best friend Wh-"
"exactly Brian... I am your sister's best friend. we don't have any business with each unless it's about Bea or Denise. So fvck off." I said as I leave the hotel. I left Brian standing in space.
Jaden and I met in a convenience store coz' I need to buy snacks too. We chatted and talked about his frustrations about basketball. I knew it. It's because it's his last year in playing.
"Brian is so great. He is amazing. I mean in everything." Jaden said to me sincerely
"I know. But you don't need to compare yourself to him okay!" I actually don't know what to say at a situation like this...
"nah Reid. We will always be compared. We are rivals... Our schools, our players... We are all rivals. It's because we have the same capabilities and however, we can't win against them." I can see his eyes started to get wet but no tears was shed.
"But you have your good points! Your unique good points! I'm sure you can beat him in something! just don't focus on what you see." I smiled at him. "Don't be so pessimistic! That's not the Jaden I knew!"
Jaden stand up "I know I have it... But the thing that I want most... I can't even beat him in that. I am willing to give everything up for that one thing... But.. I don't stand a chance against him." He smiled at me this time. "Thank you for talking with me even thou it's late. I'm sorry if I caused any nuisance"
"I... It's okay! We're friends! You don't need a thing! Keep safe I'll head home now!" I said as I leave him in the convenience store and got back to the hotel.
Finals... the last game of the league... Is... is...
We won with 37 points advantage.
"Semis is way better and amazing!" Denise exclaimed after the game.
"Clarkson Academy and Ron Drake Academy are Rivals anyway. what do you expect." Bea said it this time.
I see... so this is what Jaden meant... Rivals eh... I guess it was tough.
After the basketball league, the feast of the association of the academies was officially opened! Booths where everywhere! and food and everything can be seen! I love this!
Horror booths, Blind date booths haha, marriage booths, jail booth, cafes' and many more! It was said that it is a tradition in celebrating this kind of feast together with other academies because the founders were actually best buddies! Now that's squad goals!
I am wearing a wig now because my hair is not yet that long, Bea, Denise and I were stalling when I was held captured by the jail booth! The wedding dress jail booth! I can only get out if I wear the wedding dress for a whole day! if they saw me not wearing it, I need to pay a fine -_-
So now, I was stuck with this kind of outfit. I was anxious in my surroundings thou Bea and Denise kept on teasing me. This cousins have the same attitude as Brian! And speaking of Brian, I haven't seen him after that conversation that we had and don't want to see him any time from now.
Unfortunately for me, I was chased by some guys because they want to marry me in the wedding booths! so therefore, Bea and Denise decided to wear a wedding dress too and confuse the guys by running in different directions.
I end up going inside the laboratory room and what the actual fvck... I saw Brian kissing a girl whos' sitting in the table and it it's looks... They were gonna do it.
"I'm sorry to interrupt your sex scene. you may continue. Sorry, I got the wrong room" I winked at the girl and she smiled at me. I left the room running as fast I can.
What the hell was that! Protect me?! Protect me against Jaden? I can see that he needs to protect me! from himself! He's a fvcking playboy who keeps on toying on others! And I was a fool to fall for him without my notice and consent. I accidentally fall in love with the playboy.
