Jessica – next to me

Yes! He did the only smart and right choice. He decided to sit next to you. Why should he sit next to Mr. Who-needs-education-when-there-is-weed, when he could sit next to you?

»Hey, Steve«, he says to him.

»Hey«, Steve replies quietly.

That sounds a little sad and you feel a little sorry and guilty, but it’s Jordan and he did this choice.

He takes a seat next to you and you hug him happily. You don’t even know why you hug him. Hopefully he doesn’t see that as a sign of weakness or love.

»Hey Jordan!«, you say, trying unsuccessfully to hide your excitement.

»Hey, Jasmine. How are you doing«, he asks while pushing his stuff under the seat in front of him.

You quickly run through the options you could say and decide to give just a casual statement without revealing your true situation.

»Well …«, You begin and get interrupted by the sudden stop of the bus.

You all move your look to the entrance door and a blond gorgeous woman in black hip clothes and black sunglasses enters the bus. She is carrying a black bag on her back with a red pentagram on it.

The bus continues driving and this, very fast.

She walks towards you guys without looking at the bus driver. Ones could hear the heavy metal music coming from her big black headphones.

You and Megan are not really friends. She is this kind of woman, who just gives a shit about everything and everyone. People should care about each other and about the way other people think about oneself. Not Megan. She is just to cool for everything!

As you’ve thought she ignores you and Jordan and moves straightly to Steve, her brother in spirit.

»Say your prayers, little ones«, Steve says and raises up his hand for a high five.

»Till the sandman he comes«, Megan responds and gives him a high five with a delicious smile. she takes a seat next to Steve and starts to chat with him.

Jordan shoots a brief look at her. He looks like he is observing a treasure. Why can’t he look at you like he did it with her? Is it the hair color? The tattoos? The way to treat everyone like shit? What is it? She looks gorgeous, ok. But you do it too. So what’s the big deal? He notices your look at him and slowly moves his head in you direction.

»What is it?«, he asks friendly, but certain.

For a moment you thought about saying something, but instead you smile and shake you head. You both move your glance to the front, as the bus stops and your biggest nightmare enters it.

Jessica enters the bus. She’s wearing a red shirt, white jeans and is carrying a white trolley. Jordan looks like someone stabbed a knife into his heart. You have heard of what he have done. It was an unforgivable act, but you also heard that he were on ex for the first time and that this woman was the one who gave it to him. If he would cheat to you, when you both would be a couple?

She looks nice. She must do good, when she is having so much fun talking to this creepy bus driver.

Finally she looks at you guys. By the sight of Jordan her smile turns into a expression of pure sadness. She nods her head down, breaths hardly and moves forward to you all.

She first greets Megan with a little smile in exchange to Megan’s victory sign with her right hand. Then she smiles at Steve who winks. The sight of Jordan siting next to you is something that obviously not delights her. So without greeting you both she moves to the row behind Megan and Steve. You feel a little bad about siting next to him. You and Jessica used to be friends, even if you stopped speaking to each other since the High school ended.

You start to think if you should talk to her.

Should you?

Talk to Jessica or remain in silence.
