I walked inside the living room to find Nate and a guy who I think was his friend, playing video games. I tried to walk past them but Nate interrupted me just as I was about to cross the couch.
"Hey, why didn't you wait for me in the morning?" he asked, not peeling his eyes off the screen.
"Had some pending work at school," I lied effortlessly and he paused the game to look at me.
"You could have told me, Becs. I would have woken up early," he stated genuinely and I wanted to punch his face for acting all normal.
"It's okay. I didn't want to bother you," I gave him a small smile, tucking my hair behind my ears.
"Woah, dude. You didn't tell me your friend was hot," I heard his friend speak and looked at him for the first time since I entered. He was a fairly good-looking guy with shaggy blonde hair and hazel brown eyes that roamed all over my body and I mentally scoffed, walking away.
