But I became more subtle when I saw Mimi all over the ebony haired guy, whose name I had discovered was Steve, leaving the other to be my biggest threat.

Emerald Who runs after their ex to give them a pen? "Thanks." I grabbed it at the very tip to prevent any accidental brushing of fingers. I knew he noticed the way he looked down at the pen and then, me.
Emerald As if hearing my faint calls, he spotted me. I waved a hand at him smiling. Rolling his eyes, James snorted. I paid him a quick glance before starting toward Devin who was already inches away. He be
