Ch. 1

Kendall Cooper had just turned 25 two months ago and decided she wanted to move back to her home state of California. The first thing she did when she decided to move back was call her best friend from college, Megan, to see if she knew of somewhere to live. As Kendall’s good luck happened, Megan’s roommate had moved out 2 weeks earlier. So the two girls made plans for Kendall to move in. Kendall had been living in Florida for the past year and hadn’t talked to Megan in most of time so the two were excited to catch up.

“Oh my god! I’m so happy you’re here!” Megan said when she picked Kendall up at the airport.

“I’m so happy to be back in Cali and so happy to see you.”

“Yay! Let’s get your bags and head back to our apartment.”


So the girls got her luggage and headed back to the apartment to get Kendall settled in. There was some stuff she didn’t need since Megan’s old roommate left most of her furniture.

“I know it’s your first night here and all, but I already had plans to hangout with my boyfriend and some of his friends at his friend Matt’s house. You’re welcome to come if you want though.”

“Wait a sec. You have a boyfriend? Why didn’t you tell me?”

“Oh my gosh! I didn’t tell you?” Kendall shook her head ‘no’. “I’m sorry. His name’s Johnny. We’ve been dating about 10 months.”

“Wow. That’s so awesome. How’d you guys meet?”

“I was at a concert with some friends and I was in the mosh pit and we bumped into each other and knocked each other down. We got to talking and he asked me out and we’ve been together ever since.”

“Awww, how sweet. A love match in a mosh pit.”

“Haha. So you wanna come tonight or not?”

“Sure, I’d love to come and meet your boyfriend.”

“Yay! Awesome. I think you guys will get along great.”

Ch. 2

Later that night after Kendall had unpacked some, the girls headed out to hang out with Megan’s boyfriend and his friends.

The girls walked into Matt’s place to see five guys watching TV.

“Hey guys,” Megan said causing all five to look at the girls. “This is my friend…”

“Kendall!” One of the guys shouted.

“Hey Zacky,” Kendall said.

“Wait, what?” Megan asked.

“We went to high school together,” Kendall said.

“Oh that’s cool,” Megan said. “So I assume you know all of them, right?”

“Yep. But I haven’t talked to them in about five years.”

“How come?” Megan asked.

Kendall looked at Zacky who obviously wanted to say something but quickly stopped.

“I was getting really busy with college and we were in different towns and I don’t know.”

“Well, you’re back now and you can all catch up.”

Everyone nodded and agreed.

After a while Johnny decided he needed to question Kendall about a few things.

“Kendall, can I talk to you alone for a sec?”

“Yeah, sure.”

“Let’s go in here,” he said as he led her to Matt’s room.

“It’s good to see you again Johnny.”

“Yeah, it’s good to see you too. Um, does Megan know…”

“That we went out?” Johnny nodded. “No. I had no idea she was dating anyone until this afternoon and
definitely had no idea the Johnny she was dating was you. I was just as shocked as you guys when we walked in.”

“Ok, do you think I should tell her?”

“No, let me do it. I’ll do it soon though.”

“Alright, let’s go back out,” Johnny said as they walked back out.

“Hey, where’s Megan?” Kendall asked.

“She went out to her car for something,” Matt said.

“Oh, ok. Um guys, she doesn’t know that me and Johnny dated, so don’t say anything, ok?”

“Yeah, ok,” all the guys responded with.

“The group watched about another hour of TV before Kendall decided she was ready to head home.

“Can someone give me a ride home?” Kendall asked.

“I can do it,” Megan said.

“No, you stay here with your boyfriend.”

“I’ll take you,” Zacky said.

“Thanks, Zack.”

“No problem.”

The two drove back to Kendall’s place in silence besides the blasting music in Zacky’s car. As they pulled up Zacky turned down the music and turned to Kendall who was staring into space.

“The feelings come rushing back to you?” he asked.


“For Johnny.”

“Yes. No. I don’t know Zack. It’s complicated.”

“Yeah, I guess you could say things are complicated.”

“Yeah, especially since his girlfriend is my best friend.”

“So what are you gonna do?”

“I don’t know. I’m just gonna see how things play out once she knows we went out. Cuz there’s nothing Johnny and I can do right now.”

“True. Are you ok with them going out?”

“I guess. I haven’t had much time to process it though. I think I need to sleep on it. I’ll see you later Zacky.”

“Alright. See you later Kendall,” Zacky said as Kendall got out of the car and headed into the apartment.

Ch. 3

The next morning when Kendall woke up she decided that she needed to tell Megan about her past with Johnny.

“Morning Megs,” Kendall said when she saw Megan sitting on the couch eating some cereal.

“Morning. Want some cereal?”

“No thanks, not hungry. But can I talk to you about something?”

“Sure, go ahead,” Megan said putting her cereal bowl on the coffee table.

“Um, ok, so you know that I knew all the guys in high school right?” Megan nodded. “Yeah, there’s more to the
story that you need to know.”

“Ok, what? Did you date one of them? Was it Matt? I bet so, was it?”

“Yes and no. Yes, I did date one of them. And no, it wasn’t Matt, it was Johnny.”

“Johnny, as in my Johnny?”

“Yeah, same one.”

“Ok, so, what? Did you guys date for a few months or something?”

“More like 4 years.”

“What?” Megan said as her jaw dropped. “Four years.”

“Yeah. We started dating when we were 16 and dated until we were 20. You and I met when we were 21 so you
didn’t ever meet him. Remember I told you I went out with a guy named Johnny and that we had just broken up?”

“Yeah, I remember. Wow. I can’t believe this. So why did you guys break up?”

“We lived in separate towns since I was in college and him and the guys were trying to start a band. So we were just in two completely different places in life. We didn’t get to see each other much, so we decided to break up.”

“I see, that’s a good reason. Um, so do you want me and Johnny to stop dating, cuz you know the rule: You’re not supposed to date your best friend’s ex.”

“I know the rule. But I don’t want you guys to break up. In all fairness, neither of you knew that you both knew me and that Johnny and I had dated.”

“Ok, if you’re sure. I don’t want to make you mad.”

“I’m sure. And it won’t make me mad.”

“Ok,” Megan said as the two girls went back to watching TV.
