“They’ve known each other since they were little. I think Sandra has always had a little crush on Harry,” Margery told her.
“Oh,” was all Paulie managed as an answer. She really didn’t know how to feel. It wasn’t jealousy, at least she didn’t think so, but it was a not-so-nice feeling that made her chest feel tight and caused the smile that’d been etched into her features the whole night to disappear.
“They even went on a date once but nothing ever really came from it,” Margery said, clearly trying to make Paulie feel better after she noticed the change in her demeanour but failing. It only made the lump in Paulie’s throat grow.
Paulie kept watching Harry and Sandra who were chatting away like any old friends would but somehow the not-so-subtle touches and glances Sandra offered Harry didn’t sit well with her.
