Monday at lunch, I was nervous to talk to Cole, but I really wanted to apologize for how I acted towards the situation.
But when he came into the cafeteria, he just passed by our table without saying a word.
"What was that all about?" Emma asked when she approached me.
"Oh , I don't know. How 'bout the fact that when Cole and I hung out at the beach the other day, he thought it was a date?"
"Oh, uh, you caught that?"
"Of course I did, Emma. I already told you I wasn't ready to get back into a relationship yet. And you set us up. Emma, I snapped at him for no reason, and now he feels bad because he thought it was a date. He probably thinks I'm the insensitive person in the world now."
"Aww, Alexa, I'm so sorry. I never meant for it to go that way. I just thought he deserved a chance after how things ended with him and Abby. And I figured you two would make a good couple. I mean you went through the same thing, so I thought you could give him a chance. I never wanted to force it to happen."
"I know, Emma. And I know he's your best friend and you want him to be happy. And I know you want me to be happy. But you have to give it time. I mean I have to admit he is attractive, but I don't even know if I like him or want to give him a chance yet."
After that day, we started seeing Cole less and less at lunch. I felt really bad that I snapped at him. I tried really hard to talk to him and apologize, but he just kept avoiding me. He was a really good friend, and I didn't wanna lose him over what happened at the beach.
