After We Collided (After, #2) by Anna Todd Read Online (FREE)
“Good?” Kim asks, and I nod, taking another long drink.
Aw, come on, Hardin. One more,” Molly says in my ear.
I haven’t decided yet if I want to get drunk. I’ve already had three shots, and I know if I take another, I will be drunk. On the one hand, getting as plastered as I can and forgetting about everything that’s going on sounds nice. But on the other hand, I need to be able to think clearly.
“Do you want to get out of here?” Molly says, slurring her words.
Molly smells like pot and whiskey. Part of me wants to take her into the bathroom and fuck her, just because I can. Just because Tessa is in Seattle with fucking Trevor and I am three hours away sitting on a couch half fucking drunk.
“Come on, Hardin, you know I can make you forget all about her,” she says and scoots onto my lap.
“What?” I ask her as she wraps her arms around my neck.
“Tessa. Let me make you forget her. You can fuck me until you can’t even remember her name.” Her hot breath touches my neck, and I pull away from her.
“Get off me,” I say.
“What the fuck, Hardin?” she snaps, her ego obviously wounded.
“I don’t want you,” I say harshly.
“Since when? You didn’t have a problem fucking me all those other times.”
“Not since . . .” I start to say.
“Not since what?” She jumps up off the couch, swinging her arms around wildly. “Since you met that stuck-up bitch?”
I have to remind myself that Molly is a female—and not the actual demon she acts like—before I do something stupid. “Don’t talk about her like that.” I stand up.
“It’s true, and now look at you. You’re like a fucking lost puppy over some Virgin Mary–turned–skank who obviously doesn’t even want you!” she yells, laughing or crying. Those things tend to look almost the same on Molly.
I clench my fists as Jace and Zed appear next to her. Molly puts a hand on Jace’s shoulder. “Tell him, guys. Tell him that he’s a fucking snore ever since we outed him to her.”
“Not we. You,” Zed corrects her.
She glares at him. “Same thing,” she says, and he rolls his eyes.
“What’s the problem?” Jace asks.
“Nothing,” I answer for her. “She’s just upset because I won’t fuck her needy ass.”
“No—I’m pissed because you’re an asshole. No one wants you around anyway. That’s why Jace told me to tell her in the first place.”
All I see is red. “He what?” I say through my teeth. I knew Jace was a dick, but I thought for sure it was Molly’s jealousy that drove her to reveal everything to Tessa the way she did.
“Yeah, he told me to tell her. He had it all planned: I was going to tell her right in front of you after she had a couple drinks, then he was going to chase after her and comfort her while you were crying like a fucking baby.” She laughs. “What was it that you said, Jace? You were going to ‘fuck her brains out’?” Molly says, using her claws to make air quotes.
