Lucy sighed, “That’s a relief. I really don’t know what I would do if I lost you as a friend.” “Oh you’d find some other outrageously gorgeos person to listen to all your drama and talk crap about other people with.” They both laughed.
“Nah, no one can quite pick out people’s flaws as well as you can,” Lucy teased.
“Well there’s one person who’s flaws remain hidden to me,” Janice trailed off.
“Yeah he might not have any. But I digress. Earlier I didn’t think all of English needed to know that Kyle is totally in love with you,” Lucy said, the pain in her eyes overthrown by the returning joy.
“Lucy, there’s no way he’s in love with me. He loves you.”
“No he doesn’t One night I worked up the courage to tell him I liked him and he told me he was sorry but he was interested in someone else.”
“He said that? And how’s that supposed to mean me?”
Lucy stood there, disbelief on her face, “Oh come on. You’ve read his stuff. There’s no one else that fits.”
“How can you be sure?” Janice asked, hopes rising.
