Jax and Gia
This just all went down a black hole.
Sun Nov 6, 2016 19:30

Their reactions were the exact thing that he did not want with all of this. He just wanted fun and carefree. He just wanted to spend time with Joella and not think about anything else. He didn’t want it to be a big deal. He and Joella were having fun but it shouldn’t be made out into this big thing. He looked at Joella to see how she was handling the attention because he certainly didn’t know what to say about and it worried that if he said anything at all, it would come off sounding wrong. What he wanted to do was start this dinner over again and pretend that none of this had happened.

Sammy’s sudden decision to depart when the meal had only just begun had both Donovans looking at her in surprise. Jax was utterly dumbfounded by her response and wondered what was going on with her but Gia knew what it was and when her friend stood up, forcing Gia’s supportive hand away as she did so, she felt her heart break for her friend. She knew that if Diana or Phoebe (or even Barnaby if she was being honest with herself) suddenly was dating someone, she would have been torn to shreds. When Sammy left suddenly, Gia stood up. “Oh, you know Sammy. Always joking.” Gia said absentmindedly to Joella. “We’ll talk later, okay?” She said pointedly to Joella and to her brother. “I’ve got a lot of things to do, so I’m going to head out.” She didn’t wait for anyone to respond as she quickly left the table to run after her best friend.

                Joella was rather alarmed when Laila started crying, and very very confused. She still wanted to leave the table but two too many people had already done that and she couldn't exactly leave Jax to... more

            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... more
