Chapter Eight (Savannah)
“I’m sorry to just show up like this.” Casey said as we walked into my living room.
From the minute I saw her face, I knew she was nervous and she wasn’t the only one. This was going to be our first real conversation and I honestly didn’t know what it would bring. I sat down on the edge of the couch and Casey did the same on the other. After last night, I wasn’t sure of how I was supposed to act.
“I need to get this off my chest.” I watched as she played with her phone which kept buzzing with Jack’s name popping up every second.
“Go for it.” I said. I was trying to make this a little less awkward but I don’t think it was working. I don’t think anything would work.
“I know the situation between you and Jack.” She blurted out. Funny, I only just found out yesterday. “I want you to know that I’m not going to be the bitchy girlfriend who doesn’t allow him to hang out with you. I trust Jack.” Well…that makes one of us. “And I don’t know you well enough to not trust you. I want to get along with you because you’re such a big part of Jack’s life…” Casey started to fade out as she thought about what to say next. “I just wanted you to know that.”
Well this just made things 100 times worse. I honestly would rather Casey be the bitchy girlfriend because then I wouldn’t feel so bad about what’s happened but she’s not like that. She’s not like that at all and that’s what bothers me. She’s so innocent in all of this. She’s just a pawn in Jack’s game. At least, that’s what it feels like to me. A game. He said he loves her but something told me he didn’t really know anymore.
I watched Tegan leave and I didn’t know what to do. Last night, I didn’t really think about what I was saying and I didn’t think about how it would affect everyone. I honestly have never regretted anything more in my entire life. I didn’t want this to affect my relationship with Casey but from the minute I heard Savanah was back in town, I knew it would. I’m just scared for how different things will be now.
When I finally got myself together, the guys and I headed to play some hoops but I couldn’t help but constantly text Casey. I’ve probably sent her ten messages already but she hasn’t replied to a single one.
“Something’s not right.” I said, looking at my phone that had received no messages.
“Dude…didn’t you see Savannah’s story?” Sam asked, pulling out his phone. I watched as Johnson and Nate did the same but I didn’t understand what that had to do with Casey not texting me back.
“No…I deleted her.” I said, awkwardly. After Savannah left, I needed to forget about her so I took down all the photos in my room, I deleted her off Snapchat, unfollowed her on every social media and it worked…for about two seconds.
Johnson handed me his phone and I watched Savannah’s story. It was of her, Tegan and Casey acting as if they have all been best friends since the second grade.
“I told you,” I said, handing Johnson his phone. “Something’s not right.” I reached into my pocket to grab my keys but before I moved, I looked at the guys. They knew what I was about to do and they definitely thought it was a bad idea but I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in my life; what’s the big deal if I make just one more?
