Jason and I are officially dating now. How am I going to tell my friends? They aren't exactly Team Jason. I have to tell them eventually. I tried calling Hanna first since her and Em are obviously together since they live together now.
"Hey Aria, what's up?" She asked when she picked up the phone.
"Hey Han, do you think you and Em can come over? I need to tell you something." I told her.
"Sure, is everything ok?" She said worriedly.
"It's good new don't worry. Oh and can you tell Spencer too, maybe pick her up on the way over?" I'm not sure if it is good new for them, but it is definitely good new for me.
"Ok, I think some good new is what we all need right now. And ok, I will text Spencer."
I don't know how they are going to take the news. Jason is one of there huge suspects but it's not him. It can't be him. It doesn't add up. He's not dangerous either. He lost his sister he's gone through a lot just like the four of us.
"Hey guys go up to my room, I'm going to order some food." I ordered the food then went up to my room. Before I got there I noticed Mike's door open. I walked in. He was sitting on his bed with his head in his hands.
"Hey Mike, is everything ok?" I asked.
"I don't know Aria, what's going on with me? I have so many questions that need answers. I don't know what to do with myself." He said and it sounded like he was crying. I walked over to sit on the bed beside him. I put my arm around him and rubbed his back.
"Mike, look I'm going to call Jason to come talk to you." I told him, knowing that Jason could help him.
"Thanks Aria." He said then hugged me.
"No problem." I said with a smile. I'm glad he is willing to get help.
Then I called Jason.
"Jason, are you busy? I need you to come over, please, Mike isn't doing to good and said he is willing to talk to you. I really need your help." I told him with I know sounded like desperation. I am desperate. I need my brother back.
"I'll be right over." He said before hanging up. Oh no, I need to tell the girls before he gets here. Mike. Jason. Hanna. Emily. Spencer. And me. All under one roof. Let's see how this night goes.
I decided I needed to tell them now before Jason actually gets here. I got to my room and they were all sitting on my bed.
"What took you so long?" Spencer asked.
"I was talking to Mike, sorry." They nodded knowing it was a good thing that Mike was even talking to me.
"So what did you need to tell us?" Hanna asked.
"Well first of all. Ezra and I broke up." I told them.
"Oh my gosh Aria, I thought you said it was good news? Are you ok?" Hannah said.
"It is good news, I was putting all that work into that relationship and it wasn't going anywhere. I was tried of sitting around in his apartment or making out in his office. That's not why we broke up though. He broke up with me."
"I don't understand." Spencer said. Emily was very quiet, probably because she knew it probably had something to with Jason.
*Door Bell Rings*
"The food, finally, I'm starving." Hanna jumped off the bed. The four of us walked down stairs. I knew it might not be the food.
Hanna opened the door since she got there first.
"Um, Aria, it's not the food." She said. Oh no. I saw Jason walk through the door.
"Hey Aria." He said before walking over to me. I saw he was going to hug or kiss me. I gave him a look that said: Not now, I didn't tell them yet.
"You didn't tell them yet, did you?" I saw a bit of hurt in his eyes.
"Tell us what?" Spencer said with her arms crossed.
"Look, I'm going to go upstairs, Mike's in his room right?" He said, giving us privacy. I nodded to assure him that's where Mike was.
I looked over to my friends. They gave me a look that meant that I was in trouble from keeping something from them.
"Ok, so the reason Ezra broke up with me is because he found out that Jason and I kissed. At first he was willing to forget about it but he said that he noticed I was acting different. He said that he couldn't be with someone who was thinking of another guy. I was so upset I went over to Jason's that night. I don't know why, I just didn't want to come home. My parents would ask too many questions as to why I'm so upset. Anyways, long story short, Jason is my boyfriend now." I told them.
"Aria, he could be dangerous!" Spencer said. I knew that she was going to say that.
"Spence, come on, Toby was in that exactly same shoes just a little while ago." Hanna defended me. "I'm happy for you Aria, he's hot." Typical Han. I giggled at her comment. "Thanks Han." I smiled at her.
"Emily, you're being quiet." I looked over at her.
"I'm happy for you, because I know he will make you happy. Ezra was just stressing you out. We don't need anymore stress than you already have. Although, I'm scared for you at the same time. What if Spence is right, what if he really is dangerous?"
"He isn't! You guys don't have any proof." I said.
"The pictures Aria." Spencer said.
"He had a good explaination for those." I reminded her.
"Just be careful ok?" Spencer said. I know she is just worried about me.
"I will, come on guys. He's going through the same thing as us. Maybe without the A action but he lost Allison too. She was his sister."
That's when the food actually got here. "Look you guys eat, I'm going to go see what's going on with Mike and Jason ok?" They nodded.
I saw the two of them sitting on the bed, Jason had is hand on Mike's shoulder as he listened to him talk.
"Hey, is everything going ok in here?" I asked.
"Yeah, Jason said he going to take me out for lunch once a week so we can talk about whatever I need to talk about." I actually saw Mike smile. It was a happy smile.
"Really? Jason that's so sweet." That's when he got up and started walking over to me. I knew he wanted to talk about if I told my friends or not. I brought him to my room. We sat on my bed.
"I told them." I let him know.
"What did they say?" I knew I couldn't tell him they thought he was dangerous.
"Sort of split opinions. Happy but they don't want me getting hurt again. Not that they think you're a bad guy but they know how much I went through with Ezra."
"Aria, I would never hurt you." I knew he meant it. I kissed him. This kiss was more passionate than the others.
"Oh sorry, we'll go back down stairs." Spencer said from the doorway with Hanna and Emily behind her. They giggled then went back downstairs.
"I'll let you get back to your friends." He said through a smile.
"In a few minutes." I said before kissing him again. Once we pulled away I decided to thank him for helping Mike.
"Jason, thanks for helping with Mike, he really looks up to you. Sometimes I think he likes you better than he likes me." I softly chuckled.
"No way, he loves you, he told me that he's glad that you never gave up on him." Jason told me.
"Why doesn't he just tell me that?" I asked.
"I think he's scared that you're going to leave him like your mom did. He doesn't want to lose anyone else." That made sense.
"I should go. I will see you tomorrow because I'm working at the school again." He told me.
"Okay, and about that. When I see you, I pretend like we aren't together right?"
"I don't mind, and just as long as they're no PDA I don't think anyone would mind."
It felt good not to keep it a secret.
"Okay, come on I'll walk you to your car." I smiled at him. We walked down stairs. Before he got in his car we kissed some more. "See you tomorrow." He said with out lips still touching.
"So, is he a good kisser? You seemed to be enjoying yourself out there." Hanna said as I walked back into the house.
We all laughed. I didn't answer the question. Yes. Yes, he is. I thought to myself.
Thanks for reading! Jaria forever! Review please!
