I purposely looked behind me to see if there was another girl, maybe her name is Kyla and Ryder is referring to her.
It’s been two years or more since we’ve spoke. It looks weird right. How you can be extremely close to someone and they wake up the next day with no intention of speaking to you. It started off slowly, the messages decreased and soon enough, he’ll walk past me without so much as an “hello.” It was all so disheartening. It brought me down but I eventually accepted the fact and moved on.
I simply convinced myself that no one stays forever. Nothing last forever. Riley just proved that once more. But now, Ryder seems to take interest in me. The bet just begun and now this, coincidence or not.
“You’re talking to me?”
I managed to ask after seconds of silence.
“Yes. I’m talking to you.”
His voice hasn’t changed one bit. Still smooth and soothing.
I blurted out, my voice dripping with sarcasm.
“Yes, I know you’re probably mad at me.”
“Probably is a really strong word. Try again.”
I lash out with a scowl.
“I know you’re mad at me. Hell you might even dispice me.”
I beamed with a sly grin.
“And I don’t blame you. What I did was stupid, I acted like a jerk to you.”
I said with a chuckle
“Just give me a chance to explain Kyla ”
“I find it hard to believe there’s an explanation for what you did. If there was one, I’ve been racking my brain for years trying to figure it out. Wondering why you did what you did, doubting myself and now you want to explain. Then what, we fly off into the rainbow and act like nothing happened. Or maybe you’re doing this because of the game. Something related.”
His eyes twinkled letting me know I was spot on.
“Right. Of course you’re speaking up now that I’m a part of it. Of course.”
“Kyla. That’s not it okay. A little but that’s not it. I really wanted to talk to you ever since. I just couldn’t because…”
I trailed off waiting for his excuse.
“Because I fell in love with you.”
“Yes Kyla. You took me like a brother and I fell for you. It was wrong and stupid. I knew the feelings would always be one sided. I just couldn’t bare the thought of opening up and learning you didn’t feel the same way. I couldn’t.”
I tensed at the words unable to give a response.
“So I did the cowardly thing. I kept my distance and stayed away. I believed that if I wasn’t close to you, the feelings would die. I didn’t want to get hurt, I forgot about your feelings. I became selfish and cared only about myself. I ruined our friendship because of it. After I started, I just couldn’t stop until I’m sure the feelings would be come.”
I exhaled letting him do the talking. This was just too much to take in. Just too much.
“It’s been two years but I don’t know if it worked or not. I heard about the bet at the party and I just couldn’t resist. I had to talk to you. I had to warn you. I know my words doesn’t matter to you but for the sake of the friendship we had Kyla Malik, stay as far away from Richard and Stein as you possibly can. I’m begging you Kyla.”
He says and all I can do was breathe
