I was so angry. I thought I was angry before, but it paled in comparison to what I was feeling then. I stormed up the steps to my room and slammed the door behind me. Anger as well as embarrassment clouded my mind and heart, making it difficult to speak. I shook my head in disbelief. “How could you?”
“I can explain.”
“HAH! This should be good.” I gestured for him to continue. “Sure… why don’t you explain.”
Blaze took a deep breath. “Because I wanted to keep you safe. Away from other people who might harm you.”
“He never said anything!”
“I know that!”
“So why? Why did I need saving? How do you know he would have done anything?”
He didn’t know how to reply to that. So instead he stood there, his mouth opening and then closing over and over again. “I’m waiting…”
“I think I have an answer. I think you were jealous, and instead of being the friend you were supposed to be, you stabbed me in the back and made me look like a big jerk to very nice person!”
“Sunny. I’m sorry.”
“Sorry, won’t fix what I just did AGAIN to that poor boy. Sorry doesn’t take back all the hurt I felt over words that YOU SAID! You may not have directed them at me, but you might as well have!”
“Sunny? Wh-Who are you talking to?”
My whole body froze, and I squeezed me eyes tight. I never even heard Lemon come in the room.
I dropped down beside her and tried to steady her. “It’s okie sis, I was just letting off some steam. Been a long night.” I added a laugh at the end, but it wasn’t very convincing.
“Yes, but WHO were you talking to?”
I shook my head… “It was no one. No one at all.”
