So… Last night was pretty interesting. Interesting enough to be worth writing about, at least.
It all started when Jade called me and invited me to her place to hang out.
Now, believe it or not, in all the time we’ve been spending together, this was the first time she ever invited me over… And it would be my first time meeting her roommates too. I’ll be honest, I was pretty nervous… And I found out later that so was she, actually. That’s why she’d never introduced me before. And, looking back, I guess I can kinda see why. But I’ll explain a little more about that later.
Anyway, when I first got there, I was impressed by just how big the place was. And, I won’t lie… I was kinda jealous. Thinking about the tiny little tent I’d been calling home for the past three months was so humiliating, especially compared to the beautiful brick house in front of me.
I tried not to let it bother me as I finally mustered up the courage to knock, and headed inside to meet Jade’s housemates at last.
And, to my relief, they were actually awesome.
I mean, Eva’s a little bit of a snob, I guess… But she had some pretty hysterical stories to share. Paolo and Marcus seemed cool too… They went on and on about sports, and seemed really interested to hear some stories about when dad was playing for the Knights.
All of them just seem so fun and free… I’m not quite sure how else to explain it. But I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know them better.
It wasn’t until later, when Jade walked me to the door, that I understood just how ‘free’ they really are.
I could tell how nervous she was by the way she stared at the floor when she spoke. She took a deep breath, and explained to me that she and her friends are all about having fun – Drinking, partying… and hooking up. Often, and usually with each other.
“It’s nothing serious.” Jade assured me. “But… If we’re going to keep hanging out together, I thought maybe you should know.”
I wasn’t quite sure what to say, so I did my best to shrug it off. “Don’t worry, it’s cool.” I told her as I tried to ignore the sinking feeling in my stomach.
To be honest, I’m still not quite sure what to make of it all… I dunno. Maybe I need to sleep on it.
But what I am still sure of is that I still like Jade. A lot.
And… I don’t think I’m too crazy about the idea of her sleeping around like that. But it’s not like I have any say in the matter.
After all, we’re just friends.
