Chapter 8

Sara walked to Jake's office. She was already stressed out about what he would say, how he would react. She was already thinking of ways to tell him.

She let the door scan her, and walked into his office.

"Jake."

He turned around. He didn't even greet her.

"Was there something you wanted to tell me?" He seemed angry.

Does he already know? Sara thought. No, that would be impossible.

"What do you mean?" Sara asked nervously.

"Emily told me."

"Emily?" How would Emily know? Sara thought.

"Your conversation with Emily. You told her I loved you more than I loved her."

"Oh." Sara had regretted what she said to Emily immediately after she said it.

"Yes. By the way, you know how much I love Emily. I can't believe you would lie to her like that."

"I'm sorry, Jake. I regret what I said."

"I don't believe that. I haven't even told you that I love you yet, I don't know why you would say that."

"I'm sorry."

"Maybe Emily was right. Maybe we shouldn't be in this relationship."

"No! I regret I said, Jake. I was just angry at the time!"

"But she's still my sister! Even though I don't agree with everything she says, I still love her. After you announced the quarantine, I went to her office. She was crying. You know how protective I am of her, Sara."

"Jake, I'm truly sorry about that. I don't know what happened."

"I want to believe you, Sara."

There was a long silence.

"Jake, I'm-"

"I think you should leave now."

Sara nodded, and left the room.
