Guys, chill.

Joella should've known it would happen. If she had been in their shoes, she would've wanted to know, she would've wanted the juicy details. But that didn't mean she was going to give it to them. She and Jax had agreed they weren't keeping secrets but at the same time it was their thing and Joella didn't know if she felt comfortable revealing too much, at least not with his friends. They were her friends too, of course, but not to the same degree.

She couldn't help the guilty smile that spread across her lips when Gia cottoned on first but then she started speaking Greek to her brother and the others stepped in.

The Pecari tried to hide her surprise when Laila mentioned the tapestry. How did she know about that?

"Busted," Joella said simply, holding her hands up to make a joke of it all before helping herself to some salad.

She hadn't realised it until now but if there was anyone in the group that she'd share her business with it was Sammy. She would have thought it would be Gia but there was only so much she could tell Jax's sister, and that wasn't in terms of things about Jax himself so much. As for Laila, well she didn't feel she knew her well enough, but she seemed to be the most clued up about what was going on.

Laila had also been the lucky girl who Jax had taken to the ball last term. Was it possible that the two of them were closer than Joella realised? Or had Laila really just happened to be in the wrong/right place at the wrong/right time?

        Both Donovans stopped talking when Laila brought up the tapestry. Gia looked completely confused by the question and Jax looked utterly flabbergasted that Laila had even known about that. Joella... more

          Laila only raised an eyebrow in response to Jax's justification. Knowing Jax, it was likely there was truth in what he had said but the way he had started when she'd first brought it up coupled with... more

            Busted? BUSTED?! Yup, this was officially the actual worst day of Sammy’s life. Jax made it sound like they’d just talked or whatever, but she couldn’t imagine nothing else had happened. Nobody got... more

              Joella almost wished the ground could swallow her up when Laila congratulated her and Jax. What even was that about? She was definitely regretting joining the table. "Hey, Sammy, wait," Joella... more
