Without wasting any time
She sat close to get friend taking her hand in hers she softly spoke

“What’s the matter?

“Am..am okay” she stuttered trying hard to conceal her restless mind

“You dont look anywhere close to okay… Youre restless, tensed and… And agitated talk to me what’s wrong… Is it Him?

“Him? Cassy asked and raised an eye brow

“I mean Derrick”

Cassy sighed

“No buts… I don’t know how else I’ll tell you he’s different” she half yelled

“OK o…sorry” Angela said and shrugged

“So? She asked
