I'm a little surprised by his question.

"Are you Inlove with him?".

Ofcourse I'm not, I could answer that question without a blink even if I was woken up from a deep sleep.I don't even like Rusty talk more of loving him.

ugh..even the thought makes me want to gag, but I don't, I pretend like I always do and smile at Kellan, hoping it might work.

"maybe, it's possible".I almost grimace saying those words.Kellan stares at me intently for a moment in thought before he talks.

"really? so there's a possibility that you might be inlove with him".

"I guess"I reply hoping he would get the hint and change the topic.

"So what do you love about him?"

"things...look Kellan, I don't want to talk about my love life".

"Like you have any"I raise an eyebrow at him, I won't lie, he is kind of acting like a jerk right now and my crush in him is depreciating.

"Excuse me?"

"look April, I am not trying to mean to you or anything, we are friends right?, I'm just curious, I've seen the way to act around him, like he..I don't know, disgust you, like you can't stand being with him, the way you roll your eyes when he says something "funny", the way you grimace when he holds you or touches you, I'm sorry if I sound like a jerk but that is not love."I sigh and bury my face on my hands,I had no idea it was that noticeable, I really did try my best to pretend, but I guess I'm horrible at it.

"My lack of interest was that obvious?"

"yeah and he must really be an asshole not to have noticed".I sigh and stick to the truth.

"Okay, you caught me, I don't love Rusty, I don't even like him, he annoys the hell out of me and I just, I know it may sound crazy and silly but my gymnastics here is at stake and I can't risk".

"no April, you are not risking anything, you can't pretend like this and lie not just to anyone but to yourself".It's easy for him to say, he has no idea how I'd dreamt of being in Royal Arts, I'd do just anything to be there.

"What do you want me to do?,this has always been my dream and I'm not going to ruin it because of my selfish interest".He scoffs and shakes his head, like he is disappointed.

"your selfish interest? what do you think happens to you then, or you think oneday he would wake up and break up with you and all would be fine in April's land."I want to yell at him to stop mainly because he is right, but it's not easy like he makes it seem, he has no idea what I've been through to get admitted there.

"no April, he won't, he knows why you're still with him and he likes it, he likes that he has you wrapped up around his finger". He adds.

"no he doesn't"

"yes he does, I bet he has screwed tons of girls while taping your ass".

"stop it Kellan".I hate where this is going, he's trying to blame this on me when it's not my fault.

"and he knows that you won't mind because he's got this hold on you and you won't free yourself'".

"it's enough, I don't want to talk about this anymore, please". He doesn't listen though.

"you can't keep running from this April, you need to let go, If being in Royal Arts is causing you your happiness, then it's not the right place for you".My emotion gets in the place and I stand to yell at him.

"Easy for you to say!, you're not the one whose parents abandoned with little help, you got in with an easy miracle, all rainbows and unicorn so you have no idea what I've been through!"

"what you've been through?"he laughs with no humor. "I 've seen...."he stops immediately and shakes his head.

"you've seen what?!"he scoffs like he wants to reply but shakes his head and says nothing, for a moment we just stare at eachother, my anger slowly fades away and I realize how rude I've been to him.

Oh kill me already somebody!

He was just trying to help and I opened my big stupid mouth!.

"Kellan, I'm..."

"I'm sorry, it was non of my business and I had no idea what came over me"he says.

"No I was rude and I'm really sorry Kellan".oh god, this was definitely not how I imagined talking to him.

"It's fine, it was my fault, err I'm gonna go uhh, get your clothes, you should probably get going, your roommate would be worried".with that he turns and walked away from room.
