Caroline walked out of the grocery shop and closed the door. She turned around and bumped into Tyler.
“Sorry” she mumbled and wanted to walk away, but Tyler called her.
“Caroline, wait up” he said.
Caroline held her steps, but didn’t turn around. Tyler walked to her.
“Hey, I’m…I’m sorry for last time” he started uneasy. “I was a little uptight”
Caroline raised an eyebrow. “You didn’t act uptight, Tyler. You acted like a jerk”
“I know, but I’m trying to explain myself here” Tyler continued.
Caroline shuffled with her left foot over the paving. She then looked up. “I asked you, I gave you a chance to tell me, but you just blew me off” she said annoyed. “Why would I listen to you now?”
“It’s complicated, Caroline” Tyler said.
“Really? Because it all looked very clear to me” Caroline said sarcastic. “Look, I really have to go. Elena needs me right now”
Tyler sighed deeply. “What’s wrong with her?” he almost added ‘now’ to it and Caroline didn’t miss that.
“She’s sick, Tyler. She has blood cancer” Caroline snapped. “So while you’re being busy being complicated I’m trying to find a way to help her”
She pushed him aside and walked away.
