Song; Rumored Night//The Academy Is...
I woke up with Rumored NIghts stuck in my head. "I never looked at you like I used to now" I sang to myself. I walked over to the medicine cabinet in the bathroom and took two advil and a big glass of water. My head hurt like hell from yesterday. I remembered most things though. Especially the bar fight and the ride home. "Do you love me?" Kyle's words were already spinning in my head. Do I love him? I love him like a best friend, just like Anthony, but who was I going to choose? I liked both of them and they liked me. Urgh! I groaned. I showered and changed into some sweats. Not that I was going anywhere, I just felt more comfortable showering and stuff. I was about to grab the remote to turn on the TV when my sidekick vibrated. I picked it up without looking at the caller id.
RB; Anthony? How are you feeling
AM; I'd be better with you here.
RB; Oh god best friend. You wanna come over and watch a movie and stuff?
AM; Be over there in a minute.
RB; k, bye.
I had just put down my phone when it vibrated again. I answered knowing it'd be Kyle.
KB; Wanna come over. We need to talk.
RB; Nah. You come over. I just invited Anthony. We're gonna watch a movie.
KB; Oh. Nah, it's okay. I'll catch you later. Bye.
I didn't have a chance to say bye and he had already hung up. Well Kyle, you just made my choice a little bit easier. I was gonna throw my phone at the wall when my doorbell rang. Anthony. I swung open the door and saw his face was still bruised up. "What movie you wanna watch?" I asked him as he sat on my sofa.
"HANGOVER!" we both screamed at the same time. We laughed and I popped in the movie.
"No popcorn?" he asked. I nodded and pulled out this bucket of different kinds of popcorn. We watched the movie and when it was over he turned to me. "We need to talk." he said. I tried to look around for some kind of distraction and found nothing. I sighed.
"About what?" I asked nervously.
"Us." he said.
"We're best friends." I said.
"ya." he said, "But I like you Riley."
"I like you too. If I didn't we wouldn't be friends, silly." I said nonchalantly. He got a little more serious now.
"No, like I REALLY like you. As more than a best friend." he said. I looked down and bit my lip.
"I like you too Anthony, but I'm sure you know how Kyle feels and it wouldn't feel right just doing that to him." He nodded like he understood. "Look, maybe if Kyle were here too and we could all talk this over. Or better yet, if Kyle had a girlfriend, it make this decision way easier." I explained.
