ELIJAH POV

ONE WEEK LATER...

"Okay, folks. Turn in your assignment at the end of this week online. Remember to respond two of your classmates. This is worth twenty points, and I hope you all have a great weekend, " said Professor Ortiz, in my ceramics class.

It's been a week since I've mute about my relationship with Jade. I don't know what's holding me back to not tell Jacob. I promised Jade that I would be the one to do it; and yes I know that sounds fucking crazy to even think I have the ability to confess to my best friend.

Jacob was there for me since the beginning of our friendship. And that is probably why I'm so nervous to do say it. Yes, it is about Jade and me plus the internship.

But, losing a friend who means a lot to you; especially when you're "family" to them; it really makes it harder than it seems.

"Elijah!" said Chelsea who was walking across the courtyard to me. I stopped near the fountain and took off my headphones to communicate with her.

"Chelsea, hey."

"Hey, what's up?"

"Nothing, I was about to head to the library and see Jade. But, I got her text saying that she's at the financial aid office."

"Oh, okay, I was hoping you'd know that's why I called you."

"Aha, Yeah no worries. Can I ask you something?"

"Sure, what is it?"

"Um, have you ever been in a situation where you know it's the right thing to do but you're too afraid to even make the move?"

"Yes, plenty of times. I hate to ask but: Does this deals with Jacob?"

"Sadly... yes. I don't know how I'm supposed to do it. It's been a week."

"— At least it's hasn't been a month."

I replied with a soft snicker and said "True."

"Listen, the best thing to do is tell him. The whole nine yards about you and Jade."

"So, me and Jade plus the internship?"

"You got an internship?"

"Yeah, I did. It's one of the best art programs and I'm going during winter break, which also happens to fall into Jacob's birthday."

"Elijah. You have to be selfish with yourself sometimes. You can't rely on being with Jacob twenty-four-seven. If Jacob was a real friend, he would be understanding about your relationship and with the internship."

"I know him very well, his temper can go from zero to a hundred, real fucking quick, especially when it deals with Jade."

"Don't be afraid Elijah. If he doesn't accept it: Fuck him. Do whatever makes you happy." I heaved a light sigh and thanked Chelsea for the talk.

Chelsea is right. I should be selfish with myself at times. There's no reason why I shouldn't be afraid to say that I'm dating Jade and the internship.

Jacob is family to me, and I would be so upset if this turns out uglier than I thought. I know Jacob too well, but lately, he does seem like he's been doing good with his attitude and being n

d or forgotten. I know that. Like I said, it's been a week. I apologize for my behalf, and you're right. Okay? You're right, I should've told you. But, Jade told me to say it when we're ready.''

''Whatever.''

I exhaled a weak laugh and run my tongue around my teeth in an irritating action. He pressed his lips together and placed his head down to avoid having eye-contact with me.

''So you're not going to be a bit sympathetic, you're just going to play this petty shit with me? I apologized for my own fucking actions and you're going to say whatever?''

''Yeah, Elijah, whatever.''

''This is so absurd! You don't even care a tiny bit to have some sympathy? Not even for your own sister? Ha, You see, I'm glad that I moved to North Port.''

''You don't mean that---''

''-- Yes, I do! I mean it!"

''You don't!" he replied in a dark tone.

''I do! You know why? Cause I knew in my gut feeling that this was going to happen. I knew that someday I would see Jade and fall in love with her all over again. You knew that I had feelings for her, you knew how much I wanted to see her on FaceTime, or maybe even talk to her just for five minutes on the phone but you continued to give me some bullshit excuses to not let me get near her. You knew Jacob.''

''And your point?''

I dropped my mouth to Jacob's response and mouthed ''wow, okay''. ''We're done. I'm done with you.''

''Whatever white boy, I'm done with you too.''

''I'm not white I'm Norwegian, bitch.''

''Sounds white to me.''

''Kuktryne {Dick face}'' I replied as I walk back towards the front door. Jacob then paced his way back to me yelling my name and asking me what did I said to him.

''YO! What did you say?! What the fuck did you say to me?! He said as I was walking up the stairs. I then stop and turned my body around then cleared my throat densely and replied :
