Jacob grinned at Evelyn as they both walked into the cozy cafe, the aroma of coffee just reminded him of work as they both went to a table seating themselves.

A waitress came over to their table asking them what they wanted. "Uh I'll just have coffee." He told her.

"The same," Evelyn said, shifting in her seat. For some reason, the dark environment of the cafe reminded her of Sevilla - not a good idea.

The waitress nodded and walked off and Evelyn fidgeted with her knotted fingers on her lap. She raised her eyes up to Jake's, feeling and hating the familiar warm twinge that shot through her. "You know, you really can't say stuff like, like that if we want this um...platonic relationship to work," she began hesitantly.

Evelyn stared at him flatly and then her cheeks flushed all over again. Was he seriously asking her that? "You...ugh, Jake! you know what!"

Jacob turned his head to the side. Okay so he knew exactly what she meant, but he really couldn't help it. He was a guy after all and sometimes thoughts like that just occurred."Okay I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. Its just kind of hard you know." The waitress returned with two mugs of coffee.

"Besides, I'm sure its hard for you too. You know trying to keep your clothes on around me, I've been said to have that effect on girls." Jake added, taking a sip of his coffee.

Evelyn, to her surprise, felt a flash of anger shoot through her at his comment. She tore open a packet of sugar off a box on their table and stirred it into her coffee, face smoothing into aloofness. "Right. Let me know when you're done being thoroughly unappealing."

Jake pulled a face. He knew they needed to be serious but he wasn't sure if he was ready for this whole friends thing yet. But he knew it was gonna take a long time. "I'm sorry." He apologized quickly. "Its just I know what's coming, and I know I wanna be your friend and stuff, its just gonna be hard you know?"

Evelyn was testing her coffee for sugar, so she didn't answer a moment. She set down her cup and glanced up at him, feeling her flash of anger subside. "Then why, if you want to be friends, do you keep talking like we should never meet again after this? I mean, I'll be honest...it's kind of what I was counting on," she added quietly, sitting back and expelling a breath. "I didn't think seeing you on a constant basis next year would be a good idea...But then I realize that's not how acquaintance works."

"The thing is, I don't want us to be that way. Have it be like we can't hang out in the same room without it being tense or stuff having to be so sensitive all the time. But I know that we both went through a lot this last year, and its gonna take some time to get over it. The way we make it sound like though is. "Yeah we'll be friends, but I really won't go out of my way to run into you or see you." Jake said tracing his finger around the rim of his mug.


Jacob wasn't exactly sure how this would work. Even if they did see each other, Evelyn did spend a lot of time with her other friends. And all of them really hate Jake after how he had acted. "Although lets face it, its kind of hard to spend time with each other. Your friends hating me and all. Cause you know Lola and them, despite what Seth and Ashton were doing today they don't really mind having you around. But eventually when we both to move on from each other and we do get to that place of comfort where we could possibly hang out with each other, we probably won't." Jake said with a sort of sadness lingering in his voice.

Truth was, before he even started to develop any sort of romantic feeling, he honestly did enjoy her company as a friend. When they weren't fighting. But Jake knew that none of these things were gonna last.

"You're beign stupid," Evelyn said flatly. She finished half her coffee in quick, scalding sips and set her cup down to give him a burning stare. "Why do you think my friends would affect whatever relationship I had with you? They're my friends - not my parents. I can hang with whoever I please. I made enough of a mistake letting them dictate me last year. Although I know they have logical reason to not want you around, it's their company you can't have. Not mine. I'm not in kindergarten and neither are you. We don't play by that whole, stupid, "if my friends don't like you, I won't be your friend either" crap."

"I mean listen, its kinda hard to be friends with you when James or Luke wanna find any chance they can to punch me in the face. Usually I'm like you, I don't do that crap either. But sometimes its like they make you chose. It shouldn't have to be that way." Jake replied to Evelyn. Sure he could care less what James thought if he was friends with her.

Jake however, did not want to have to earn a black eye just for even breathing the same air as Evelyn. "But besides all of that, really. I just want us to be friends, no avoiding each other, or any of that."

"You're confusing me," Evelyn said irritably. "You just said we shouldn't be friends!"

Jacob huffed,"This talking crap, ugh. Its just you're right I don't wanna be your friend, I know what I want but I know it won't work. And its time to accept that and move on. Just for us to be friends and learn not to be weird around the other.''

Jake was annoyed with himself, he knew he was confusing Evelyn but part of him wasn't done fighting for that small chance they'd get together. Jake knew he had to silence that part of himself though if this was ever gonna work.

Evelyn glanced up at him, startled speechless by his bluntness.

For a second, she resented him for saying what he just had. It sparked to life that familiar ache in her chest that had been building for months whenever he was around. She needed to quell it, stomp it out of her.

She bit her lip, to her horror, feeling her lower lip wobble. Before she realized what she was going to do or say, though, she'd gotten up out of her seat.

She had half a mind to run as she stepped around their table. But then she turned and paused behind Jake's chair and leaned down, wrapping her arms around his neck from behind and burying her face in his unruly hair. She could distinctly smell his cologne. "I freaking hate you."

Jacob had put his head down of course what he had said would make her leave. But what had happened he wasn't expecting, he felt her arms drape around his neck, her face in his hair. With Evelyn so close, he felt his heart beat faster.

"Correct me if I'm wrong, but usually whenever someone said they hated me, they don't hug me... unless you're gonna strangle me." Jake said, wondering if he should be alarmed.

Evelyn had half a mind to do just that. Then again, she wasn't a minor anymore. "Lucky for you, jail is unappealing to me," she muttered, and straightened up, letting go of him. Just for kicks, though, she twisted a bit of the hair at the nape of his neck.

Jake winced, going to rub the back of his neck. "Call me crazy, but that made me feel a whole lot safer. "He said eying Evelyn. "But, all jokes aside. we gotta figure something out." He said needing to get serious.

"Yes, of course," she recalled, pulling a frustrated face as she walked back to her seat adn slid into it. "We're just so great at serious talk."

"Don't cuss," Evelyn said instantly, glaring. "It's inappropriate and you never know when there might be a kid nearby."

She looked around the pub-like cafe. No kids. The youngest patrons were probably themselves. But whatever. "I mean, it's the principle of the matter!"

Jake rolled his eyes. "Whatever, I'm not here to fucking impress anyone. There are no kids around so I'll swear freely. But since you are a lady, I guess I'll try to tone it down." He said smugly, looking at his abandoned coffee. "Damn it its cold now."

"Schadenfreude," Evelyn said simply, eyes narrowing at him. She shook her head. "Anyway! I just...um...okay, so the first step would be not avoiding each other...I guess?" she said uncertainly. Although if she knew herself, she'd have a hard time following that rule.

"Bless you?" Jake raised an eyebrow at Evelyn's first statement. But he nodded. "Listen I have no trouble like not avoiding you, you know? Its just that at first we realize that oh if we spend less time around each other that it would be easier to get over the other. But I know next year it might be easier cause we won't be in the same place you know, but hmm..." Jake sort of bit his lip. Why did it always take them so long to have these conversations?
