I wasn't going to break up with Damien. I had no reason to break up with him; he was the perfect boyfriend. He tried his best to make me happy, unlike Dash who was busy protecting his cousin and betraying me.

But Dash told me to break up with him. He practically threatened me. And I knew Dash was pretty good when it came to following through with his threats. In fact, that was the only thing he was good at.

I didn't love Damien; not the way I felt for Dash. So maybe, I should break up with him because I was only going to hurt him in the long run. Maybe I would fall for Damien in the future, if I somehow managed to move on from Dash.

Moving on from Dash was crucial for me. It hurt too much to see him with Gemma. He didn't love me; Gemma was the one who owned his heart. Forgetting him would be beneficial for me, I would be able to lead a happier life. However, my stupid heart refused to listen and understand.

One thing still puzzled me: why did Dash order me to break up with Damien when his heart belonged to Gemma? Did he not want me to be happy? Was he so cruel as to make me yearn for him all the while he loved another? That was not fair to me. I was only a teenager, I needed to find and go out with other boys; I knew now that Dash was not the one for me.

"Hello, " Damien greeted, plopping down on the chair next to me.

"Oh hello. How are you? You look happy, " I observed, smiling at my boyfriend.

"I am with my girlfriend; why wouldn't I be happy?" His words had butterflies fluttering in my stomach, however, my heart refused to get affected, because it still belonged to Dash. Stupid heart.

"You know how to say the sweetest things, " I commented with a giggle.

"They come straight from the heart. Trust me on it. I don't lie to you, " he stated, sincerity shining in his eyes. My heart clenched and unwanted tears sprung in my eyes as thoughts of Dash and his lies invaded my mind. Why couldn't Dash have said this to me?

"Thank you. Your honesty means a lot to me, " I said, blinking rapidly to push back the tears.

"Really? Does that mean you'll go out and have ice cream with me after this exam?" He asked and I laughed.

"Of course, but only for an hour because I have to study for my next mid-term exam tomorrow." I told him.

"Alright, only an hour. Good thing I've already ordered ice cream for us. We can sit in the courtyard and eat, " he said.

"You've already ordered ice cream for us?" This guy was proactive, it was sweet.

"Yes, a pint size for both of us. Is that enough for you or do you want more?" How could I even think about breaking up with Damien when he was so kind to me? The simple fact was, I couldn't. Dash would just have to live with that. He had to watch me move on from him.

"You are the best, " I stated and I meant it. Damien was the best boyfriend and I was sure he was an equally amazing friend. I just wished I had strong feelings for him, which thanks to Dash I didn't.

"Why is he the best?" Damien and I saw Dash standing in front of us, his blue eyes burning with fire.

"Because he is my boyfriend, " I replied, making sure to keep my emotions in check. I didn't want either of the guys to know that Dash still affected me. Damien would be hurt while Dash would act like a jerk as usual if they knew what I was thinking and feeling.

"I see." I could see Dash's fists tighten, and my heart soared knowing I made him angry.

"Is there something you want, Melwin?" Damien asked, irritation oozing from his words.

"Who's talking to you here?" Dash snapped.

"You are talking to my girlfriend, which means you are talking to me, " Damien stated, his eyes firm.

"Bri is her own person, not your goddamn property; stop treating her like one." Dash gritted.

"She is my girlfriend and how I treat my girlfriend is my own business. You need to back off, " retorted Damien.

As much as I liked Damien telling Dash to back off and mind his own business, I couldn't help the irritation simmering in my belly. I didn't understand how girls could enjoy boys fighting over them, because I wanted to slap them both. They didn't get to decide who I talked to

y fault. Dash's presence was tarnishing my view of Damien, and I did not want that to happen.

"Finally, you are away from that insect!" I yelped in surprise when I heard Dash's voice. I looked up to see him leaning against a bench, with his legs crossed and arms crossed over his chest.

"God, you scared me." I glared at him.

He chuckled. "Cute. Where are you going?"

"None of your business, " I snapped, trying to walk away from him only for him to block my path. "Get out of my way."

"No. I want to talk to you, " he said.

"Why?" I gave him a dirty look. "Why can't you just leave me alone?"

"Because I miss you." His words made me pause.

"Stop lying, Dash. If you can't tell, I'm sick of your lies, " I retorted, ignoring the thumping in my heart. Stupid heart.

"I never lied to you, Bri, " he replied, as if I was the one being difficult here. I raised my eyebrows in challenge. "Alright fine. I lied to you about Lauren, but I swear to God, Bri, I never lied about how I feel about you."

"Right. Of course. I so believe you. It's nice to know that you have been telling the truth about liking me only for your heart to belong to Gemma, " I muttered sarcastically, rolling my eyes.

"Okay fine, I lied about the Gemma thing as well. Okay, I didn't really lie about that—"

"Oh my God!" I threw my hands in the air. "Would you stick to one statement, please, it's getting annoying; and it's not helping your case in any way."

Dash sighed. "Look, I want to apologize, properly."

"I don't want your apology. I am with Damien now." I told him even though that was a big, fat lie.

"Yeah, that cockroach needs to go." He took a deep breath. "I want to see you tomorrow, after curfew."

"Sorry, I have more important things to do, " I stated with a shrug.

"Bri, please. Give me a chance to explain. I deserve a second chance, " he argued.

He did deserve a second chance and I really wanted to give it to him. But I refused to budge. I wanted to make him beg just a little more.


"Please, Bri, just one more chance. Two hours, tomorrow, after curfew. That's all I ask. If you don't like what I tell you then you are free to leave and I will try my best not to bother you, " he stated.

Ha! As if!

I sighed. "Alright fine. I'll try to come."

Dash smiled and I swear my heart swooned. "Excellent. Thank you so much. I'll see you tomorrow. And make sure you don't tell that freak about our plans." He turned and walked away, leaving me standing there...

Anticipating tomorrow night.
