“I’m trying to have a serious conversation with you!” Maddix said, gripping his head with one hand.
“And I’m trying to subtly avoid you,” Arcelia said, picking her camera up again.
He stared at her then burst out laughing. “You’re impossible, you know that?”
She grinned behind the camera then it was flashing right in his face. “Yep,” she answered. “Trust me, I have two brothers to tell me that all the time. You’re not needed.”
The comment was flippant, as most of hers toward him were. But, it dug deep. Yeah, he was really starting to feel that way.
Awww, poor Maddix. He’ll figure out his feelings toward Arcelia…eventually. And, no, they won’t end up together. She doesn’t have those feelings.
