First <Prev - Afterword
I barged into the dorm and saw Sky sitting on her bed looking quite forlorn. She looked at me and her face lit up a little as tears of, what I believe to be, relief flew from her face.
“Mari!” Sky yelled as she leapt towards me, her arms wrapping around me, “I was so worried, I’m sorry for saying I hated you.”
I hugged her back and tried to comfort her with a voice brighter than usual.
“It’s alright, I mean, it must have been a shock.”
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” Sky sobbed.
“It’s alright, just let it all out.”
And so she leaned on my shoulder and cried for a bit.
“I’m okay now,” Sky said, pushing me away and standing up straight. “I guess it’s alright then, I mean, if Nick likes you, there’s nothing I can do.”
“What are you talking about, I mean…”
“No, it’s fine, I mean, you two would be great together,” Sky said with a smile.
“I guess we would.”
My heart skipped a beat realizing I said it aloud.
