Part 5

"Hey guys," I walk up to our usual table.

"Hey," they all speak in unison.

Nami scans my face. "You look awful." I guess I never fixed my hair after Aiden ruffled it into a mess before he left.

"Where's Zoe?" I ask and tie my hair up into a messy bun.

"She's picking up a book on adaptive unconsciousness," Zachary says. "I get to read it after her."

"What?" Nami protests, "she agreed to lend it to me next."

"I live with her, so I'll get to it first," Zachary grins triumphantly and pops a baby carrot in his mouth. "Proximity's a bitch ain't it?"

Nami mutters something under her breath and takes out a mix of almonds and dried cranberries from her bag. It's her favorite snack and she always has them on her. I drop my things and slide into the booth.

"What's wrong?" Nami asks as she picks out all the dried cranberries.

"Nothing."

"Something is," Nami looks through the corner of her eye.

"What did Aiden do to you?" Zachary asks-his voice deepens with anger. Anyone who doesn't know Zachary would never imagine he's gay.

"He didn't do anything," I say. "Aiden is actually pretty sweet."

"Oh," Zachary's face returns its calm expression and he pops another carrot in his mouth.
