He pulled me closer to his chest, to the point where I was basically in his jacket with him. The tears were slowing down now, mostly due to the fact that I hated crying in front of people, so I was forcing myself to control it.
After another minute, Jake tilted my head back slightly. “You ok now?” He asked quietly.
I nodded, not trusting my voice yet, and pulled away a little.
He cracked a tiny half-smile and said, “I know what’ll cheer you up.” I looked at him funny and he laughed a little, “I’ll take you home real quick. Fix yourself up and get ready to have some fun. Todd’s having a party, and you should go.”
I sighed inwardly, “Jake, I dunno if-”
“Do you want to sit around here all sad?”
This time I sighed aloud. Then I shook my head, “No.”
He frowned a little then asked, “No you won’t go, or no you don’t want to be sad?”
“No, I don’t want to be sad.” I replied.
“Forget that Matt guy, that kind of thing comes with the business babe. It’s ok-you’re ok. I promise.”
I smiled weakly, loving him was so easy.
