He cares by Haiza Tyri
Chapter 1 by Haiza Tyri

            So he hasn’t been taunting me all this time. Sometimes, maybe. We’re like siblings. I really lost it when I thought he was taunting me with Thomas’ death. On top of dealing with the anniversary of his murder, I couldn’t cope with more…hurt. Because it did hurt. Because we’d been friends. Because we were like siblings. Because in some strange way we’ve been allies.

            I never let myself believe it before. Jarod cares. He brought me Thomas. Thomas was taken away, but Jarod had nothing to do with that. It hurt him, too, for himself and for me. He cares.
