#5- Someone Finding Out
“Hey, (Y/N), what are you doing tonight?” You friend Emily
asked as you began to pack your things up at the end of class.
Your eyes darted up to look at Tom momentarily, /Him, most
likely/, “Nothing. Why?” You looked at her, throwing your back over your
shoulder as you began to walk out of Tom’s class.
“I was wondering if I could come over and we could watch a
movie or something.” You swallowed. You hadn’t exactly been staying at your
house. You were at Tom’s 90% of the time and your place was most likely a
disaster area and the food in the fridge… It had been two weeks since you were last there.
“I… um… Can’t tonight.” You said, trying to think of a
reason as to why she couldn’t come over.
“Why not? I thought you weren’t doing anything. It’s been
weeks since we’ve hung out.” She said with a slight whine that she was
characterized for. “You’ve been acting funny…. You’re hiding something aren’t
“No. Why would you think that?” You asked, stopping out front
of the classroom door, eyebrows furrowed and voice drenched in bewilderment.
“Because we barely talk, we don’t hang out, and you’re
secretive as ever.” She said, crossing her arms over her chest.
You sighed, seeing as everyone else had left Tom’s lecture
hall and you pulled her back in.
Tom hadn’t seen Emily standing behind you, “Hello, love. Are
we heading out for lunch?” He asked, already knowing it was you without looking
up from his papers.
“Love?” Emily’s voice echoed in the empty room and Tom’s
gaze shot up to look at her.
You turned to her, pointing at Tom who was behind you, “Him.
That’s why I can’t.” You answer and put your hand down, “Em’s, I doubt you
would say anything, but I swear if you do I will smite you.” You warned, “We’ve
been dating and I’m practically living with him. I only still have my place
because school can’t know we’re seeing each other.” You explained.
Her eye nearly popped out of her skull, “I knew it! I knew
you had a thing for him… But… okay… Can I still come over though?”
You giggled and nodded, looking back at Tom who sighed and
shrugged, “Yes, Em.”
