Over time, Safrina got over Lex and cheered up again. It was a relief for both Engeline and me that she didn’t fall to deeply for him.
“I wonder how the bitch is,” Safrina said, still somehow a little bit mad at the beauty that stole her ex-boyfriend.
“She’s probably dumped,” I guessed.
She smirked. “Yeah, maybe. I have to thank her though.”
“Why is that?” I asked not because I didn’t know, but because I knew she wanted to say it.
“If it weren’t for her, Lex would’ve toyed with me longer. I would fall deeper, and harder.”
Subconsciously, she leaned on my shoulder, gazing at the trees far away. She sighed. “Thanks for being here, Kaleb.”
“No problem. I–”
“You’re the best friend I’ll ever have!” she said dreamily. And I knew she meant it.
