THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 282

Don’t Mock Me

“Don’t mock me,” Lindsey said.
She backed away
toward the last stall.
“I’m not.
I just want to know
why you’re doing this,” I said.
Her face began
to crumple,
but she forced her snarky smile
back on.
“You don’t care.
You’re just nosy.”
No. I do care.
I could not explain why I did.
This was Lindsey
—my biggest rival—
in a moment of weakness.
She should not be weak.
As many times as I had wanted
to rip her apart,
now I wanted to comfort her.
“I’m serious,” I said.
“Just quit. It’s not worth it.”
Her tears fell.
