“That’s rubbish, and you know it.”
Silas shook his head. “I don’t know any such thing, Corrin. My vision might be crap without corrective lenses, but I can see what’s between you two.”
“Yeah, well, I don’t even need glasses to see the way he looks at you.”
Silas shook his head, but a soft snort escaped. “It’s not the same. I know he likes me. We’ve been best friends for nearly a decade now. But, it’s not what he feels for you.”
Corrin wasn’t really sure what else she could say to convince him. She knew it was the truth, though. Jeremiah might like her, but she could see it in every look that passed between the two of them; he loved Silas. And that was something she definitely didn’t want to get in the way of.
Once she had her own life settled again, she’d step out of their path. Even though it made her chest ache to think of not having both of them so much in her life anymore.
Today is Day 19 of Just Jot It January and today’s prompt is ‘Rubbish’. Isn’t it amazing how we can see things better between other people than with themselves. 🙂
