After We Collided (After, #2) by Anna Todd Read Online (FREE)
JACE TAKES A PUFF from his joint, then looks at it intensely. “I haven’t really been doing shit lately, just hanging out. Tristan barely comes around anymore; he’s stuck up Steph’s ass.”
“Hmm,” I murmur. I take a sip from my beer and look around his shit apartment. I don’t even know why I came here in the first place, but I didn’t know where else to go. I’m sure as hell not going back to that apartment tonight. I can’t believe Tessa is with Zed—what the actual fuck.
And Landon wouldn’t call Tessa and trick her into coming back to my father’s house no matter how many times I tried to force him to. He’s a dick.
Still, I have to admit I admire his loyalty, but not when it stands in the way of what I want. Landon said I should allow Tessa to make the choice whether she wants to be with me or not, but I know what she’d choose. Well, I thought I did.
I was completely blindsided by Zed picking her up and having spent almost the entire weekend with her.
“What’s going on with you?” Jace asks me, his pot smoke blowing right in my face.
“I must say I was pretty surprised to have you show up at my door tonight after what happened the last time I saw you,” he reminds me.
“You know why I’m here.”
“Do I?” he taunts.
“Tessa and Zed. I know you know about it.”
“Tessa? Tessa Young and Zed Evans?” He smiles. “Tell me.”
He needs to wipe that goddamned smile off his face.
After I meet him with silence, he shrugs. “I don’t know anything about it, honest.” He takes another drag, and small flakes of the white paper fall onto his lap, not that he seems to notice.
“You’re never honest.” I take another sip.
“Yes, I am. So they’re fucking?” He raises a brow.
I nearly choke on my breath from his question. “Don’t fucking go there. Have you seen them together?” I breathe in and out slowly.
“Nope, I don’t know anything about them.” Jace puts his joint in the ashtray. “I thought he was dating some high school chick.”
I stare at a pile of dirty laundry in the corner of the room. “So did I.”
“So she ditched you for Zed?”
“Don’t mock me, I’m not in the mood.”
“You came here asking questions. I’m not mocking you,” Jace sneers.
“I heard they were together on Friday, and I wanted to know who was there.”
“I don’t know. I wasn’t, though. Don’t you two live together or some shit?” He takes his wannabe-hipster glasses off and places them on the table.
“Yes. Why do you think I’m so pissed about this shit with Zed.”
“Well, you know how he’s after what you—”
“I know.” I hate Jace, I really do. And Zed. Couldn’t Tessa have chosen Trevor to move on with? Holy shit, I never thought I would consider her being with Trevor a positive.
