I put my wine down and texted Jake from the kitchen:
“Remember when you sucked me in even though I was totally unavailable and didn’t want to get involved with you?”
“Well, I’m trying to do the same with Evan but he won’t have any of it.”
“What does he like about you?”
“He likes it when I am brooding, stand-offish and uninterested.”
“Then be that.”
I liked how he didn’t even ask what happened to Chris. I smiled and missed him a little.
