Andrew through the door with me holding the presents. "January and Hannah," he smiled proudly pointing to Jan and Han.
"Yes!" I laughed and kissed him, he was finally learning everyone's names.
We walked over to the girls, talked for a few, and handed them their gifts.
A candle and a smoothie machine since I AM the smoothie girl.
Daisy came up and gave me a hug,
"Hey Mads, what did you get them?"
"Smoothie machine," I laughed.
"Of course, smoothie girl," she smiled, "this must be Andrew?"
"Yeah," he said reaching out to shake her hand, "nice to meet you!"
She ignored his hand and gave him a hug, "You too, love! I'm off, but Mads, I think Chloe was looking for you?"
"Thanks, talk to you later," I smiled and walked off.
"Daisy?" he asked.
"How'd you guess?" I smiled.
"Energetic and friendly, just like you described her."
"Chloe!" I saw Chloe and walked over to her.
"Hey Mads, this is Cooper," she introduced me to her boy toy. (;
"Oh, Andrew, Chloe, Chloe, Andrew." I introduced the two and Chloe and I sent our boys to grab us some drinks.
I told Chloe all about the kiss with Cam and how I was moving on.
"Well, it sure looks like he is too," she said and she pointed over to Cam, with another girl, staring right at us.
"Cam!" I almost screamed, I walked over and pulled him by the sleeve out in the hall.
"Who is that girl?"
"Jane," he shrugged, adjusting his sleeves.
"Why are you here with her?" I asked and I found myself trying not to cry.
"You told me to find someone else."
"Yeah, but don't be showing up at IAU events with her, this is my turf."
"Whoa there, babe, January invited me."
"No," he said, "I can do what I want."
"Yeah, alright. You must really love me if you don't care about hurting my feelings."
If you read this far type, Cam is a rockstar.
I turned and started to walk out the door, he grabbed my arm and said "Look, Madison, if you loved me I would take you in a heart beat, but you don't."
"Yes, I do," I shrugged away his hand and kept walking.
"Then why this? Why Andrew? Why not me?"
"Because," I turned around and faced him, "I can't put myself through this again. Andrew is simple, you're so complicated."
"But isn't that what makes it fun?"
"No, it gives me a headache."
"I'll change, for you, I will."
"No, I am not in the business of changing people. Have fun with Jane."
I disappeared back into the party and left Cam in the hall.
