Ava spun around and threw the door open wide.
“Noa—!” Her shout died on her lips as she caught sight of him, still standing on her porch with one hand clutched in his hair.
He was breathing hard, as if he’d run around the block twice in the five minutes she’d been debating with herself. He hadn’t moved though. Not one step.
“Noa—” She started again.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it the way it came out.”
Ava froze, his words ripping through her. He hadn’t meant it. The realization crushed her, mangling her heart. Unbidden tears burned at her eyes. She sucked in a breath to fight them back.
“It’s fine,” she mumbled.
“Ava—” His face fell. “Ava, I—”
Here it comes, she thought. The “you’re a great friend, but…” speech. She couldn’t stand here and listen to that speech. Not coming from him. Not tonight.
“It’s fine,” she said again, trying to find the ability to smile at him or laugh off the entire situation. So he’d called her beautiful, liked her in her dress. So what? Didn’t mean he wanted her like she did him. “You don’t owe me an explanation. We’re friends.” She turned toward the door, ready to flee before the tears in her eyes gave away that lie for what it was. Noah wasn’t just a friend to her.
“Fuck that. We’re not friends.”
