“Wow, that was crazy,” Melody said as we were driving away from the restaurant.
“You haven’t seen anything yet. Just wait until I post that pic of us holding hands,” I said and chuckled, “That’s when the real madness will begin.”
“You’re not helping,” she said obviously terrified.
“Relax, you’ll get the hang of it eventually,” I said and continued to drive.
“I’m not so sure. I never wanted to be under the spotlight,” she said and sighed, clearly worried about the way our situation will develop in the future. Somehow I felt like I should maybe comfort her, but I went with my incessant need to pick on her.
“Well, I guess you’re just gonna have to suck it up, won’t you now, wifey,” I said never taking my eyes of the road.
But the moment I finished the sentence I felt a pit in my stomach. This didn’t feel right, as it would usually do, when I tried to make her feel bad. I could feel the despise coming from her eyes, even though I wasn’t looking at her. This felt even worse, but I just ignored the feeling and kept driving.
