And since I’ve been gone for waayy tooo loonng, Here’s another chapter for all of you! :))
“But seriously, why is he eyeing me like that?” I asked lying in my bed.
“He’s jealous.” Demi replied.
Demi begged me to call her as soon as the date was over and as promised, I did and when I got home, she was in my room, playing my guitar. Like she was more exited for the story that I was.
“He’s jealous? Of who? Me? Why? Does he like me? Is he gay or something?”
“Are boys really that clueless?” She asked teasingly.
“Hey, what’s that supposed to mean?”
She laughed again.
“What I meant was he’s jealous of you!”
“Because, Miley’s our bait. I’ve seen him checking her out a couple times and it finally made sense, he likes her too much but he wants Selena around. Now that Miley’s pretending to date you, he’ll think she’s taken and that’s why he’ll make a move?”
“Isn’t he supposed to give up when a girl’s already with somebody?”
“That’s what most guys are supposed to do. But he likes challenges, that’s why he dated Selena.”
“What do you mean, that’s why he dated Selena?”
“There’s a 5% part of him that genuinely likes her, a pathetic feeling he has and he don’t want to show it unless she becomes unavailable and the guy looks like a challenge, then he’ll want her more and then when he finally gets her his like for her will decrease to about 3% and then he’ll find a new target. Remember who Selena’s dating before him? David, remember him?”
“Oh yeah. Wow, Demi, that was good.”
“I know.” She smiled. “But the story’s not twisted yet.”
“What do you mean?”
“Selena’s crazy for you but she doesn’t want to think so because you’re the best friend. She loves you but you’re more important to lose so she can’t take chances.”
“So, Selena likes me? So I could just ask her out then?”
“You’re not getting it. She doesn’t like to think of you as that so she won’t say yes if you just ask her, you’re gonna have to open her eyes.”
“Wow. Things just get complicated by the minute.”
