Magical: Regardless of whatever it had been that brought them this close, Jay
just wanted to make sure that, no matter what, Carlos was happy. And,
truthfully, that was the only reason the older teen hated knowing the
black and blond boy had feelings other than friendship for him. It
wasn’t because it made him uncomfortable, but rather that they stood in
the way of Carlos’s happiness.
Good to you: It had been an accident. At least that was what Evie had said to him.
Carlos wasn’t quite sure he believed her though. After all, she had been
the only one he had told about his feelings for Jay. But how exactly
she had gotten Jay to eat one of the spare love potion laced cookies
right in from of him he still hadn’t figured out.
The Right in the Wrong: As Ben’s coronation approaches, Carlos is quickly beginning to realize that accepting Jay’s offer of love was a mistake. (this part has five chapters)
Carlos realizes tourney is not for him, so he joins the cheerleader team
and no one knows, so when it’s game time he cheers for Jay. The opposite team is so distracted
by Carlos that they loose the game.
He has heard of time standing still during important events in someone’s
life but he’s never thought it was anything more than a figure of

Jay scanned the crowd one more time, looking for dyed blond hair and any
flash of black, white or red he could find. In traditional Carlos
fashion, he had probably escaped and gone to hide somewhere within the
first hour of festivities.
In a moment of confusion and panic to avoid going out with Jane, Carlos
tells her that him and Jay are dating. So him and Jay come to an
agreement. They weren’t dating, or fake dating. They don’t do dating.
They do arrangements. This was their fake arrangement. No feelings.
Acting. Totally just acting.
