NaNoWriMo Novel: Ch.3 Past

“Listen.â€? He says, right in my face. “I know my cousin can be shy… but he is also hurting. I doubt he told you, but before our fathers told us about the two of you he had been in a relationship for almost 2 years. He’d planned on marrying her. I even went with him to pick out a ring. Don’t mess him up any more, Hazel. I’m warning you.â€?

I stare at him in utter disbelief. I watch as, with out another word, he leaves my room. I sit down on my bed. Edwin had specifically said there was no one before he came here… I flopped down and groaned. I felt extremely guilty now. What was I going to do?

I glance at my clock and realize Mom and Dad would be home in a little less then a half hour. I grab a pair of sweats and jump in the shower. At least by the time my parents were home I would have a plausible excuse as to why my hair was wet.
