We stepped out of the car and into the restaurant, trying our best to avoid the rain. Hannah would take this opportunity to dance in the rain, but she was serious and wanted to get down to business. I know that look on her face. And as did james. He and I both feared it. 
James gently put his hand on my lower back as I stepped up the stair and into the restaurant. 
After looking at our menus, Hannah looked up at James with her eyebrows raised, almost already doubting his answer.
“what’s going on, James? What have you been up to?” 
He put his cold water down and looked up at me, with a weak, apologetic smile. I couldn’t resist but to smile back.
“I don’t like this.” He said to me, avoiding eye contact with my best friend. “it’s like 2012 is here.” His joke failed with Hannah.
“I’m serious, James. What the hell is up with you? ew. Who does that? did you fall off The Brooklyn Bridge?” 
“no! what are you talking about? I just needed a break. Stop this bullshit! Who are-“
“guys, seriously, stop.” I chimed in and they both stopped to look at me. “what’s done is done. It’s ok. Can we just eat in peace?” I handed each their chop sticks.
“I told her I was sorry for leaving like this, and she understood me.” James spoke to Hannah calmly. 
“I just want you to know that I will always be on your ass if you hurt her. She’s my everything.”
“Hurt her?” he interrupted her.
“yes! You did. Leaving without warning and not calling, texting or anything is hurting her! What if she did that to you?”
“Hannah-“ I called her name.
“I cant deal with this guy anymore.” She grabbed her jacket and rushed out. “I’ll see you at home, January.”
I ran after her and caught up with her outside. “hannah!”
She turned around and stopped walking and let me catch up to her. “where are you going?”
“I’m sorry. I cant nsit there and listen to his bull. He’s playing games.”
“babe, you gotta give him a chance to explain himself.”
“I cant. I don’t ever want to see you hurt ever again. Do youknow what it did to me to see you like that for three days?”
The rain started to pour on us, causing us to barely hear each other.
“Taxi!” she waved at one. “I love you, we’ll talk when you get home, ok?” she kissed my cheek and jumped in the cab.
I ran back in the restaurant where James sat quietly to himself, staring at the plate full of sushi rolls.
“I’m sorry.” He said, noticing how wet I was from the rain.
I stared at his face for a few minutes. “I missed you like crazy.” He said as he reached across the table to wipe the water away from my face.
“I missed you too.” I said in a low voice. 
“I really am sorry.” 
I nodded and took his hand and kissed it, leaving it a bit wet from my lips.
“I love you, January Rain.” 
“you do?”
“I always have.” He smiled. “and I always will.”
I smiled back at him.
“wanna go outside in the rain?” I asked him.
“you’re crazy but I love it.” we raced outside while it drizzled.
“come here.” He grabbed me by my waist and held me tightly as we swayed with each other’s body.
