A week went by fast and even though I was sad my time with Laurel was going to end, I also liked that time was just flying by. It meant that Evan and I could go home soon. Emily was going to give birth soon, I knew Evan didn't want to miss that. And there was also my parents who we needed to deal with. Dad wasn't going to be happy about the fact that Evan and I were dating. I wanted to tell him off, but Evan told me we were going to deal with it together. That it would be alright. He didn't know my parents, but I wanted to believe him. I wanted to believe we could have our happily ever after where everything was perfect.

"Zoey, are you even listening to me?"

"Hm?"

Laurel shook her head at me, "Of course you're not listening to me." She muttered.

"I'm sorry, there were some things on my mind." I reached for my cup and sipped from my green tea, "What were you saying?"

"I was saying that I saw that text and I couldn't ignore it!" Laurel sounded exasperated which caught my attention, "I mean how was I going to ignore that? I didn't question him about it, but I think he didn't realize I saw it in the first place. I did kind of sneak a peek, you know."

I wasn't understanding a word she was saying. She was talking fast, so fast I think she didn't even catch her breath. She was making big hand gestures, obviously upset about whatever text she saw. She also referred to a 'him', so I was going to assume she was talking about Evan. I needed to calm her down so she could tell me exactly what about my boyfriend upset her like that.

"Laurel, take a deep breath, please." She pushed Laurel's glass of water toward her, "And take a sip. You need to calm down because you're making no sense at all. You're worrying me and I'd like to know what I'm worried about."

Laurel did take a deep breath and reached for her water. Gulping it down, she placed the glass back down and let out a tired, long sigh.

"Okay, the other day when we were having dinner at your apartment, Evan left his phone on the table while he helped you do the dishes. He didn't realize he left the screen unlocked and I couldn't help myself. He left a text open which was from a girl named Priscilla. I couldn't read all of it, but I did read the words I miss you so much and I wish you were here, love you lots." Laurel shook her head, "Sounds like some teenager who has an obsession with him. Anyway, a girl was texting him crap like that!"

I didn't want to accuse Evan of anything, Evan was very social, it could be a text from a friend. He was close to Emily and I knew he'd never go there. He was faithful, yet the little doubt I had was making me lose my mind just like Laurel had a second ago.

"You shouldn't have gone through his phone, " I muttered, clenching my fist, trying to keep my emotions at bay.

"I didn't even touch his phone, I more or less hovered over it to read the text."

I smirked at Laurel who tried to make it sound like she did nothing wrong. I knew she only did it because she was my girl, wanting to make sure my boyfriend didn't do anything wrong. But I had to be rational about it. She did invade his privacy.

"Laurel."

"I know." She rolled her eyes at me, "It wasn't right, but screw that! Who is the girl?" Laurel asked me, a question I couldn't answer, because I had no freaking clue, "Don't you want to know?"

I did want to know, but I wasn't going to invade his privacy and go through his texts. I had to be grown-up about it and face Evan. Ask him straight out who the girl was. And also apologize for the fact that my girl read his text.

"I'll ask him, " I told Laurel.

She slumped back in her chair, "You will?"

I nodded, "Yeah, I want us to work." I admitted to Laurel, but she al

ildhood I figured she deserves a little fun in life now. Since I can afford it I don't mind letting her do whatever she wants." He trailed his eyes to me, "She is rarely around though. I'm sure she'll be there for the wedding. She does love Nick. She'll also be there for the baby."

I reached for his arm and held onto his bicep, "You have a sister."

He smiled at me, "I have a sister."

"Who is exploring the world, living off your bank account."

He nodded, "Basically."

"And you're not complaining because of something that happened in your childhood."

He pulled away from me and got to his feet, looking restless as he paced the living room. It was cute seeing him behaving out of character. Evan always seemed so put together. Like nothing could get to him at all. Him showing me his weakness meant something to me. I just wouldn't admit it to him yet.

"I'm not ready to talk about that yet." He told me as he kept pacing back and forth, "Priscilla and I only have each other. But we're fine now."

"Whenever you're ready, I'm here." I told him quietly, "I'll listen."

He stopped pacing and faced me. He looked at me like I just told him unicorns were actually a thing.

"Thank you."

Without warning he walked around the table and pushed me down on the couch, hovering over me to kiss me. When the kiss got too intense and he was ready to undress me, I pushed against his shoulder to stop him.

"We can't! We need to get ready." I reminded him.

He didn't look happy about that, but he did pull away from me. He got to his feet and held his hand out to me. Smiling I took his hand and let him pull me to my feet as well. He surprised me by wrapping his arms around me and pulling me in for a hug. He tightly held onto me as he buried his nose in my hair.

"You don't know how much you mean to me, Zo."

Warmth spread across my body, making it hard for me to breath. He couldn't say the words yet, but I knew what he meant. I felt the same way. He didn't know how much he meant to me either.

"Evan-"

"Be patient with me, okay?" He asked me quietly, "We'll get there eventually, I promise. Just don't give up on me yet."

I tightly held onto him as well, my heart hurt for him. Whatever happened to him broke something in him. I could tell by the pain in his voice. He didn't want to go there yet, because he mentally wasn't ready. I wouldn't push him. Laurel was right, he'd tell me eventually.

"Don't worry about it." I told him, "We'll be okay."
