''You've got to admit, that was funny.'' Dimitri says as soon as I enter the apartment, rolling my eyes but slowly curving my lips up into a smile. ''He was turning all red if you didn't show up, '' He adds before leaning his head back into laughters.

Remembering back of the way Noah started to get frustrated just by Dimitri's respond was quite funny, it'd be a lie to say that I wasn't slightly enjoying it because that was indeed worth it. No matter how hard he tried to convince him about seeing me, Dimitri kept on leading him on and trying to fool him into thinking there's no one named Kenna who lives here.

''When you come to think about it. . . yeah, '' I reply with soft chuckles escaping my lips as I make my way towards him, both still laughing.

Just as we continue to burst into laughters, Aidan appear from the kitchen with a frown plastered on his face; not quite understanding why both of us are red by trying to control ourselves from rolling on the floor. Then again, Dimitri and I are always the type to roll on the floor and slap each other's arms when we laugh.

''What's so funny?'' Aidan asks, raising an eyebrow.

Dimitri's eyes are tearing up, ''You should've seen the look on his face when I was convincing him that Kenna didn't live here. It was hilarious!'' He says before running his fingers through his thick dark hair as he clutch onto his stomach with his other hand.

''Who was he?'' He asks, again as he takes a few steps closer towards us. Both of his brown eyes landed on me who is currently trying to stand up straight from the amount of laughters and the slight pain in the stomach—leaving me breathe heavily.

''Bro, it was the ex-boyfriend. Alert, crazy stalker.'' Dimitri winks at Aidan, sending him a signal that I can barely comprehend.

''It was Noah and no, he was not being a crazy stalker. He came to congratulate and that's it. Dimitri is just making things up, '' I say with a smile on my smile, looking directly at Aidan who is still slightly confused but he nods, returning back the smile—making him head towards the back and take a few boxes before putting them near the front door.

''You can never trust the ex-boyfriend, '' Dimitri smirks.

''Why is that?'' I cross my arms as I raise an eyebrow, waiting for a respond.

''Oh. . . you know, '' He squints his eyes before looking at his nails, pretending to be blowing them. ''I'm just guessing that it's one of his tactics to try and win you back. Congratulating you and apologising so that when you have an argument with your one-year-husband, you'll be reminded of him and how nice he was, '' He pouts, making those puppy eyes.

''That would be true if he was the one who broke up with me but it was actually the other way around, '' I reply which causes his smirk to grow wider.

''Wow, you were a?bitch. He did seem like a nice guy, '' He frowns.

Just like that, I grab onto the nearest object beside me which is one of my cushion pillows before throwing it directly towards his direction. It landed onto his face and the impact causes his body to lean backwards, making him touch the side of his cheek immediately, finding a tiny cut.

The tiny cut seems almost invisible unless someone pays a closer look but the look on his face shows how much he's surprised and left speechless. Both of his eyes widen at the stinging sensation on his cheek before grabbing onto the pillow and aiming it at me, landed straight onto the ground. . . nowhere near me.

''You're going down!'' He shouts before running towards me and with a groan, straggle me down onto the ground by hitting my body continuously with the same pillow.

''Why are you so heavy?!'' I shout at him, trying to push his body off of me but he seems to be planting himself onto the ground without making any movements. ''Man, are you trying to kill me or something? You're twice the weight of my car!'' I add, frustratingly.

''Wait, Kenna. Do you smell that?'' He mumbles near my ear as both of my arms fall down onto the ground before letting out a deep sigh. Even with a hard push or a kick, he might not want to move away—he'll just keep on leaving the whole weight of his body on top of mine.

''Smell what?'' I roll my eyes.

''A gentleman, '' He says before lifting his face and wink at me which causes me to smack his head, leaving him quickly sitting up straight—rubbing onto the?exact?spot.

''A gentleman does not hit a woman, '' I respond before whipping my hair and throw him the largest grin he has ever seen, immediately leaving him shiver at the sight before softly chuckling at my childishness. Truth to be told, if Brody ever sees us fighting like this, he might confuse us as kids.

My eyes wander around the room before landing on Aidan who is currently looking at both of us, ''I'd like to ask why were you two strangling each other but I know that the answer would be pointless because you two. . . are always fighting. I've never come to understand why, '' He says as he messes with my hair like a puppy, leaving me groan.

''You don't even know the whole story, '' Dimitri starts to speak. ''There was this one time when Kenna and I were out for lunch. We started to argue about the damn menu. . . like, we were both?literally—''

''—I didn't ask.'' Aidan cuts him off which leaves him picking up his jaw from the floor while I start to chuckle before seeing Aidan slowly standing up. Then, he is already walking out of the apartment with one of the boxes, placing them in the car's trunk.

''He has never done that to me, '' He mutters.

''Stay strong, '' I say before slowly s

down immediately, leaving me leaning deeper into my seat as both of my eyes are focusing onto the food. He places them on my lap which to my surprise, causes my lips to curve up into a smile—silently wrapping my arms around it, protecting from any harm like a seatbelt.

Aidan presses onto the gas pedal and starts to drive down the road, glancing at my direction for a few seconds.

''Do you remember about the friendship bracelet that you got for me when we were both seventeen?'' He asks, turning to look at me as I turn to look at him, slowly recalling back the memories of ever buying him a bracelet as a token of our friendship.

''Yeah, the one you lost a couple of days afterwards. That friendship bracelet?'' I raise an eyebrow, my lips curving up into a smirk before seeing him smiling as he turns to look down the road.

''That?friendship bracelet, '' He nods his head.

He stops talking for awhile, ''Well. . . I didn't actually lose it.'' He adds, leaving me to turn and look at him. Both of my eyes are widening at his respond before trying to seek for any lies by his expression but nothing. He seems serious about it as he turns to look at me, too.

''What do you mean? You gave it away?'' I ask.

A soft chuckle escapes his lips, ''No. I still have it lying in one of the drawers in my room. There's a reason why I told you I lost it when I didn't and you're not going to be very happy when you hear the truth, '' He breathes out, tapping onto the steering wheel according to the beat of the music.

''Do tell because I think that I deserve to know, '' I join him, chuckling.

''So. . . you still remember about it, right? The design, the shape with our names on it, the colour?'' He raises an eyebrow, making me furrow mine. ''Well. . . the colour was the reason.''

Our friendship bracelet was beyond cute. It was perfect. Most of the girls at my school had cute matching bracelets with their best friends when I was left with none because apparently, my best friend is a guy. . . but that didn't stop me.

''What's wrong with the colour?! It was pink, '' I exclaim.

''You know how my friends were back then. They like to tease each other and when they started to see me wearing the bracelet, they were teasing me, too. They wanted to tell the whole school that I had fallen head over heels for my own best friend and I didn't want crazy girls to run after you or send you death notes, '' He replies.

''So, you pretended that you lost it?'' My arms are crossed on my stomach before turning to look at him, narrowing my eyes.

''Yeah. . . during football practice. Then, we spent a few hours after school to look for it. I was just going with the flow because I wanted to make it look real and I didn't want to upset you but I couldn't find a better excuse of not wearing it, '' He continues to speak, defending himself.

''Bro, I made that bracelet!'' My voice raising which causes him to immediately press brake, in the middle of the road—other cars are honking behind us, including Dimitri. ''It took me the whole week. . . one hundred and sixty-eight hours to be exact but you were embarrassed to even wear it because it was pink?!'' I look directly at him.

''You said you bought it!'' He turns to face me.

''Well, I lied!'' Just like that, I start to turn around and look out at the window as he starts to drive the car, again.

''I'm sorry, Kenna. Will you forgive me? How can I make it up to you?'' He asks, slowly grabbing onto my hand before soothingly running his thumb at the back of my hand, leaving me trying my best to keep my anger high up but it's disappearing just by his finger's movements.

Both of our eyes meet, ''Find that bracelet. Wear it for the rest of your life, ''
