Chapter 14: Lean On “You can’t go inside, he’s here.” I had no clue what Camila was talking about. “Who’s here?” I whispered wondering who was here and why we were all huddled on the side of the cabin whispering. “Alan, he arrived like five minutes ago!” “WHAT!” Jake and I both yelled at the exact same time. “But that’s not even the worst part” Camila whispered. “Just get it over with already and tell us” I said in agony. What was worse than my ex boyfriend showing up on my vacation. “Alan didn’t come here to see you.” “Well why was he here then?” Now I was shocked. There’s no other reason that Alan should be here. Camila took a gulp and looked me in the eyes, “He said he was here for Lauren, and that she invited him to come.” Oh my god. I was furious. Immediately after she told me Jake grabbed my hand and intertwined it with his. Surprisingly, I didn’t resist. Jake looked at me with his bright eyes, “So what do you want to do now?” I processed his question for a while. “I say we just avoid Alan at all costs and stick together”
The rest of the night Jake and I avoided Alan and stayed in my room. Camila helped us as much as she could. We decided it would be the best if we just stayed in the same room so we wouldn’t have to run into Alan on accident. It hasn’t been that bad actually, Jake and I just talked and watched movies. It was kind of perfect, it seems like whenever I’m with Jake now it perfect.
