I flipped through the book and landed on page 190. “Hey!” Austin says, head bopping to the beat.
I nod and force a smile. We all stand there for a solid five seconds, looking at one another. It’s awkward as fuck. when it was me, Ezra, and Declan – I don’t know, the three of us just worked. We always had something to talk about, to laugh about. I never felt jealous or like I wasn’t being included. Before Declan broke up with Ez, we were all friends with each other. And now, Ezra and Austin are both looking at me like they expect the same thing to happen again – for me to just befriend Austin, welcome him into the group.
