This was inspired by the book/movie Something Borrowed. It’s kind of problematic so I put a moral spin on it.
Things to know: Graduation kiss never happened. Camilla and Jack never dated in college but instead, Camilla and Bitty are really close friends. Bitty is 25 and everyone came back to Samwell for the youngest of their friends’ graduations.
“You totally like him,” Camilla smiled mischievously at Bitty. He glanced around the bar nervously before turning back to her.
“I don’t. He was my captain. We’re friends,” He said softly, stirring the straw in his vodka cran.
“Oh come on, don’t give me that,” She sighed, crouching down to his ear. “Buy him a drink. Act casual. He’s right there, Bits. This is the last day everyone is in town now that the Frogs are graduating,” She urged. Bitty swallowed, looking down and shaking his head.
“I can’t, Cam,” He sighed. She watched him for a long moment before sighing.
“Then I will,” She said, standing up straight and throwing back the rest of her drink. Bitty stilled, looking up at her sharply. “Do you like him?” She asked one final time.
He looked up at her, eyes wide and throat tightening. She was beautiful. She was athletic and smart and amazing and she deserved everything in life. Just not Jack. Anything but Jack. Please.
Rach? Rachel? Pick up, pick up, pick up. I’m panicking. Dex never came home. Listen to me, Dex never came home and I don’t… Why isn’t anyone answering? Pick up the phone! Rach, I don’t know, it’s an emergency, and I think Dex is cheating on me. And I know it sounds so crazy, but: hot people, they get cheated on sometimes.
I like you. I’ve always liked you. And when another guy came into the picture, I liked you even more. You are home for me. Wow that sounded crazy. Wow. And that’s probably what all this is..it’s probably just crazy. It’s not love.. Though it kinda feels like it is. Don’t worry, my love isn’t the overwhelming kind. Jesus, when I’m in love I drink rosé and watch remains of the day. I don’t know .. Maybe it’s just that I miss you. But I think you fell in love with someone else. And I think you still are.
