Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 8
He’d gotten some of the nerd guys to do a bit of recon to discover if John was a threat to him, or Becky.
Neither were. In fact, John was in a long-distance relationship with a girl he met at camp, and Becky hated men of all kinds right now.
She was going through what she considered her feminist phase.
After shaking Mitchell’s hand to let his friend know they were good, he made his way over to Laylah.
She stood to the left side of Becky, and he put his arm across her shoulder, stopping her in her tracks.
“I missed you today,” he said.
She stopped and turned to look at him.
“Hey, drive along.” He winked at her. “Hey, Becky. Hey John.” He tried to knuckles the friend but John clearly didn’t have a clue so it looked odd.
Laylah had a forced smile to her lips and she grabbed his arm, marching him away from her friends.
“What the fvck are you doing?”
“What? I can’t hang out with you?”
She folded her arms and glanced behind her.
He did the same to see Becky showing John what he was trying to do.
She turned back to look at him.
“I don’t know what you’re doing, Blue, but I don’t like it. We’ve never been close or even friends. Now you’ve asked me out on a date, and you’re acting like …”
“Like I want to go out with you and you know, be your boyfriend?” He wasn’t going to be vague.
There was no way he wanted Laylah to mistake his intentions. He wanted her.
Plain and simple. He watched her, waiting.
“I do,” he said.
She looked away from him and shook her head. “I don’t think this is right. I want you to give me some space.”
“You’re telling me you don’t want to go out with me?” He stepped close to her, not wanting any distance between them.
“No, I don’t.”
“I find that very hard to believe.”
“You do have a high opinion of yourself.”
“No, I don’t. What I am is confident. I know what I want and I’m going after it. No questions asked, and you, baby, is what I want.”
He stared at her as she looked at him, seeming completely clueless about what to say.
