“If I had to guess, I would say you got scared.”
I laughed. “Trevor, what in the heck are you talking about?”
“It was Chloe who told you how she felt and you told her you didn’t feel the same. Am I right?”
He nodded. “But you did feel the same, didn’t you?” Swallowing hard, I took another drink of water.
“Steed didn’t want to tell you because he knows it, too.” With a confused look, I asked, “Knows what?”
“That the two of you should have ended up together. That one of you most likely felt too afraid to move past friendship.”
“Steed thought we should be together? He said if I ever kissed his daughter he was going to twist my balls so hard I would talk like a girl the rest of my life. I was just a kid when he told me that shit, so I believed it.”
Trevor’s head tossed back in a laugh. “Oh, man. I’m going to remember that one for Aurora. With her being a freshman in high school, I know the boys are coming.”
I slapped Trevor on the back. “Hate to break this to you, but I’m sure she’s already had her first crush.”
He gave me a look that made me tremble.
“Okay, well, should we finish up?” I asked.
“No, I wasn’t finished. Like Steed, there were a lot of us who thought you two would end up together. But I think you need to be prepared for tonight, Rip.”
“Easton will be with her.”
My stomach felt like someone had forced me to drink lead. I swallowed hard and tried to shrug it off.
“Well, they have been dating for a while, so it would make sense that he came home with her to celebrate her graduation.”
He nodded. “I just didn’t want you to be caught off guard when you saw him.”
I stood, finished off my water, then put my gloves back on.
“If Chloe is happy, then I’m happy.”
Trevor stood. “Is that why you get lost in a bottle of whiskey every week at Cord’s Place?”
Glancing over my shoulder, it was my turn to shoot the dirty look. “I’m good, Trevor. Like I said, I’m happy for Chloe.”
