“I was ghosting you last night because I was with someone else.”


“Mhm.” Nyx blushes nervously, “I’m sorry if I like, worried you.”

“No no I’m just…surprised.” Abby admits. “You were…with someone?”

“Mhm,” Nyx looks down at the floor, kicking her legs.

“That’s… that’s great!” Abby grins with excitement, “Who?”

“Her name’s Jayla,” Nyx hides behind her hands, blushing harder, “we were just hanging out…nothing happened.”

Abby jumps up and down excitedly, “I’m so proud of you Nyx! How am I just finding out about this?”

“It just… happened. She said she thought I was pretty and she let me be around her. She didn’t seem to mind that I was too shy to say anything. It was really cool honestly.”

“Oh my God this is so cute. Do you like her?” Abby pulls out her phone to excitedly type things into it.

“I… maybe I do.”

Abby wraps her arms around Nyx and pulls her in for a hug.

“I know how much this means to you. Good luck.”

Nyx smiles and hugs Abby back. It’s all something small at the moment, but who knows what it could bloom into.

“Just one thing,” Abby smiles, “Try to at least text me back next time?”
