Gia and Jax
For reals.

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 joked about it though so Jax relaxed a little. It wasn’t as if they had done anything wrong when they had gone into the hidden stair case. But it unnerved him all the same that they had been noticed. Like his privacy had been taken from him in some way. It wasn’t, of course, but he couldn’t help the feeling.

“We had a private conversation a couple of days ago and used the stairway as the place to do it.” Jax replied with a shrug. He said it more to ease Gia’s confusion than anything else, but he didn’t see why both Laila and Sammy seemed so troubled by the news. Or, at least, Sammy was based on the way her voice sounded. Laila wasn’t looking at him, so he was uncertain of her feelings.

Gia looked at Sammy cautiously. She remembered the letter from last term and how Sammy felt. The smile she had for her brother and for Joella faltered slightly because she had just realized what this all meant for her best friend. Gia placed a hand on her friend’s knee and gave it a squeeze. She hoped it was a subtle hint to her friend that she was there for her. She wanted to support her brother but she also didn’t want to hurt her friend either.

        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
