"Can you quit thinking like that?" Max was starting to sound like Josie. Of course, she told him what was on Derrick's mind. Derrick thought Ian was cheating on him.
"I can't help it." Derrick looked miserable. He seemed to be hiding in the basement lately, at home.
Max was beginning to see how fragile Derrick was. Totally, insecure.
"Well, don't think about it. Things are great between you and Ian. You have nothing to worry about." Suddenly, he felt he was everyone's cheerleader. He and Josie were friends. That's all that mattered. At least, it was better that way. A bit of him felt suffocated from all the kissing before. That had stopped. Just talk, mostly.
That was a bit of an undertaking too. How she felt about the unknown would be lover. She was such a mystery. He really didn't want to figure it out. Now Derrick's moods were a lot to decipher, too. It was all so crazy and different. But this was Derrick's world and Max supposed he was a part of it.
"What kind of a name is Lola, anyway?" Derrick paced around as if his days were numbered with Ian.
Max rolled his eyes at that. What did Derrick want him to do? Besides, Josie wanted them to go shopping for Halloween costumes. This was suppose to be a fun time. Now Max felt he was obligated to do something for Derrick. But what?
