Around six, Hunter picked me up, and we went for pizza at my favorite place. It was just a little hole in the wall, but I loved it.
I put my pizza down and wiped my face with my napkin, “I’m going to miss this pizza. Thanks for bringing me here.”
“You’re welcome. So, Dominic is home, huh?” He asked, watching me take a bite of my pizza.
“Christ! How did you know?” How did everyone know this, and I didn’t?
“I saw him and Alexis together, walking into her house last night?”
What! I snapped my head up to look at him, hoping he was joking. “What? He didn’t come home until this morning.” At least that is what he told me.
Glaring down at his pizza, he said, “No, he was home last night, and he was with her.”
“You must have seen wrong. He wasn’t home then.” My cheeks were beginning to burn from embarrassment.
He looked at me for a minute before he asked, “CC, can I ask you something?” I nodded at him. “Why are you with him?”
“Why does it matter to you?” I wish I was with you is what I honestly wanted to tell him.
He let out a sigh. “He doesn’t treat you right. Why would he not tell you he was home? Why is he even talking to Alexis after all that shit that went down last year?”
I need this conversation to end; I don’t want to talk to him about this. “I asked him about that. He said that she told him you and I fooled around with each other at the party last week. I guess he wanted to see what she had to say.”
“And what did she say?”
“Hunter.” I said with a warning tone. “I can’t do this. I can’t have everyone questioning my relationship with Dominic. It’s my relationship, not anyone else’s. I’m finished eating, so can you take me home now?” I stood up from the booth, and headed towards the bathroom. I needed a few minutes to calm down.
