Tennessee Heat Chapter 12

 “What?” she asked when he didn’t say anything more. “Come on, I need to ask you something.” “So go ahead ask me.” “No not here please come with me.” He looked around as though expecting someone else to be eavesdropping on their conversation. “Tim I already told you, I am not going. Why do you keep asking, what is it that you have to say that’s so important?” Was he really that thick? When have I ever walked anywhere with him anyway? She thought as she tried to understand this new angle of his.

“Come on Annabel you know how I feel about you, I’ve been trying to tell you for the longest time. Why won’t you give me a chance? Is it because of my job? You know I’m not going to be there forever and besides you’re not even going to go off to college, you know that’s not gonna happen now, you lost your chance.”  Tim regretted the words as soon as they left his lips but she made him so nuts. She gave him a look that would singe hair, but kept her lips closed, after all wasn’t he telling the truth? Nonetheless she regretted sharing that confidence with him on one of their rare polite conversations a few weeks ago, since he found it so easy to throw it back in her face. “Look I’m sorry I said that, that didn’t come out right, I didn’t…you make me nuts. I don’t even know what the hell I’m saying. Listen, are you seeing someone else?” “No,” she said, feeling just slightly guilty, like she’d just betrayed Chase’s trust or something. But she wasn’t in the mood to share that part of her with anyone around here. It would feel tainted somehow she thought.  “So what is it then, what’s the big deal? Why can’t you just give me a shot?” “Tim, I just don’t feel that way about you I’m sorry.” Which is something I should’ve said a long time ago, she thought. And spared myself this embarrassment.

Why should she feel guilty for tuning him down? It’s not like she’d ever given him the impression that she was interested in anything but friendship. As soon as she’d realized where his mind was going, she’d begun distancing herself bit by bit in fact.  But they were once friends and she hated the thought that he might even now be feeling all the things she’d felt in the past with Chase, the burn of unrequited love.  She’d hoped that by now he would’ve found someone else to give his affections to. She hadn’t given him any encouragement and couldn’t imagine why the heck he hadn’t just given up long ago.

“We could be so good together I know we could. Come on, say you’ll at least give it some thought.” Tim why are you making this so difficult? I already told you I do not feel that way about you, Ok.”
