The Mug: A Short Story

I sip my coffee and respond in an annoyed tone. "He 's fine. He asked me to the senior camping trip, even though it 's like a month away. I met Camden 's sister Lauren who is becoming an amazing friend. You 'd love her."

"Oh yeah, what was that Camden said about making out in the driveway? I thought that was our spot?!" Blake jokes and I blush about him mentioning the making out.

"It was a good 1st date. Now. Would you please explain the rumor to me" I shrug and smile, but turn serious in an attempt to change the subject from Sam.

Blake sighs. "I heard Camden was talking about the prank you pulled last night, and how you came back in this morning. He told Elijah and Elijah took it the wrong way and told someone who told someone who told Kasey. And after

    I do just that and still am just met with, oh look, what do ya know!

Sometimes at night I cry to myself saying I wish I have never done that.…
