( ( ( chapter 12 ) ) )
Shane’s phone was blowing up from all the texts he was getting that Savannah was hooking up with another guy. He tried calling Savannah but she wouldn’t answer. He tried Ava next but to no avail. How could she do this to him? After the way she’d been acting all day and even last night. Shane knew Savannah wasn’t that drunk when she hooked up with him.
Was this still part of her game with Ava? To find out if Shane was for real or not? He’d already proved to Savannah that he was being honest when he said he liked her, so why was she still playing this game? If Shane wanted to, he could be hooking up with other girls right at this moment, but he chose not to because of Savannah. So why wasn’t she doing that for him?
He was so angry that it was his dad’s weekend. If it was his mom’s, he’d be at that party right now and Savannah wouldn’t be doing that. But of course Heather had to rat him out to his dad, and now Shane is basically on house arrest, which his father tried to call ‘family time.’ More like his father at work, Corinne at a friend’s house, Heather in the living room watching TV and eating not only for herself but the baby she was pregnant with, and Shane in his room.
But something was different this time. Everyone was home and Shane couldn’t figure out why. For a kid in all honor’s classes, it bothered him that he was so confused about everything right now and couldn’t figure anything out. He felt stupid.
“Shane,” Mr. Palmer knocked on his door.
“What?” Shane asked, not looking up from his phone screen. He was trying to check Twitter to see if anyone had posted anything. He thought he found what he was looking for when his father snatched the phone from his hand.
“You need to come downstairs,” he said. “Now.”
“Why? I haven’t done anything wrong,” Shane said, hoping Corinne didn’t tell him that Savannah had slept over last night.
“I know you haven’t. We have some news for you,” he said.
“Knock off the attitude,” he said, walking back downstairs with Shane’s phone.
“Dad, I need that,” Shane said.
“You’ll get it back after Heather and I talk to you. Now we’ve already broke the news to Corinne and she took it very well. We’re hoping you will too,” he said nervously, knowing Shane probably wouldn’t.
Shane braced himself for what he was about to hear. He already endured finding out Heather was pregnant and that his father was marrying her once the baby was born. The way his father proposed it, he knew it would be bad. He was just hoping it wasn’t worse than his first two announcements.
Shane sat down on the leather couch opposite of Heather and his dad. Heather’s long blonde hair, makeup clouded blue eyes, thin pierced nose by a small diamond stud, perfectly shaped eyebrows, and acrylic nails made her seem like she came straight off of Jersey Shore. Now that her body wasn’t hot enough to work at Hooter’s anymore because of her pregnant belly, she was being supported by Mr. Palmer. Shane just thought she was a gold digging leech.
“Shane,” Heather smiled, trying to prepare herself for the blowup Shane was about to have. She had a way of speaking that made everything sound like she was asking a question. “So as you know, I’m six months along now and we’ve been preparing the baby’s room for his or her arrival and we’re all super excited.”
“Okay,” Shane said, not understanding why they were talking to him.
“Well, as it turns out, it’s not just one baby…two months ago, we found out we’re having twins,” she tried to smile.

( ( ( chapter 14 ) ) )
By the time Monday morning strolled around everyone had heard of what happened at the party. Shane overheard people talking about it and that made him feel even worse. Shane sat at his lab table in first period biology but Savannah wasn’t there yet. There were three minutes until the bell rang which would start the school day, and she was usually here way earlier. Shane wondered where she was but didn’t know why. It’s not like he was going to talk to her.
With five seconds to spare, Savannah slipped into the classroom and into her seat. “Hey,” she smiled at him. He ignored her. Savannah took her phone out and texted to Ava under the table.
Savannah: I knew this would happen. He’s not talking to me. He found out and now he hates me.
Ava: Calm down, maybe he’s just in a bad mood?
Savannah: He’s talking to Faye and Jade and all these other people around me. He ignored me when I tried saying hi
Ava: Maybe he didn’t hear you! I’m sure he’s not mad, Sav.
But after the period ended he didn’t try to walk her to her next class. He ignored her in math and in English as well. Things were just as they were before Shane confessed that he liked Savannah, only this was worse. At least when he pretended to hate her he acknowledged her. Now he was acting like she didn’t even exist.
After the bell rang dismissing the English class and ending the day, Savannah tried to get Shane’s attention as he booked it from the classroom. He knew she wanted to talk but he didn’t know what to say to her. If he told her he was upset for getting with Hunter, all she’d say was that they aren’t together, or worse, she’d make a comment that he cheated on her last year with Ava.
Savannah called his name but he kept on walking. She texted him that she wanted to talk but he ignored it. She was getting tired of him being so childish about things like this. After all the pain he’s put her through, what she had done was nothing.
Savannah walked down the hallway to update Mr. Ian on how the tutoring sessions with Ava were going. She checked Twitter as she walked down the hall but looked up from her phone long enough to see a 6’4 freshman in a practice jersey walking out of the locker room. He had seen her too, and it was too late to pretend he didn’t.
“Shane, I’m sorry,” Savannah walked straight up to him.
“It’s alright,” he walked right passed her.
“No, Shane, it’s not,” she said, grabbing his wrist. “Are you mad at me?”
“Why would I be mad?”
“Because I hooked up with Hunter,” she said.
“Oh good, so you know that that was wrong,” he said. “Yet you still did it anyway.”
“Shane, I didn’t think it would be a problem!”
“Why would you think I’d be okay with that??”
“Because you know how much I care about you and you basically led me on?” he answered for her.
“Because we’re just friends!”
