Mallory hadn't spoken to Benson since the night of his party.
That wasn't technically true. They'd nodded to each other, and said hi, and other things you might say to someone that you were casual friends with.
But they hadn't talked, really talked, since the party.
She saw him sometimes at school. She'd decided to take a writing class, after all. Now it was halfway over and she still hadn't spoken to Benson. One part of her missed him desperately.
She knew that one reason that she hadn't spoken to him sooner was because of Brian. She loved him, but she knew he would flip his shit if he saw, or heard, about her speaking to Benson. He didn't like her talking to boys when he wasn't there, that was all. That was
not perfectly reasonable, especially when said boy was her ex.
Still ... everytime she saw him, the butterflies in her belly began flying crazily. Today was no exception. Today, however, was different in that this time she wanted to speak to him.
"Hey," she said softly, touching his arm to grab his attention. She hoped he didn't hate her.
