Edward Masen was a lot of things, but the one thing most people at Fork's High School associated him as was the heartthrob. Pretty eyes and perfect hair nice lips and a captivating voice- those types of things don't go unnoticed by the girls around here. Or most of the guys.
As his best friend I found it fairly easy to pick up on his emotions, but when it came to romance Edward had always been a blank book. He never showed interest in the girls around here and I don't think the idea of a man had ever even crossed his mind I had been brave enough once to ask him if he was asexual to which he had simply laughed at the "ludicrous" notion. When Bella had first arrived most people figured the two of them would become an item. That idea was thrown out the window when Edward and I had spent a night at our friend Emmett house and found Bella and Emmett half-sister Rosalie naked in the other girl's bed. At the moment Jessica Stanley (the captain of the girl's volleyball team) was standing next to Edward in a fairly revealing (probably what would be past school restrictions in not for our perverted principle) top and her too short volleyball shorts playing dumb while asking if he would be coming to the game tonight. Edward was going to go either way seeing as our close friend Alice was the co-captain and we went to every game.
Edward simply ignored the brunette and the bouncing cleavage next to his face as he responded saying he would be with me most of the night.
"Well, what about after? A bunch of us are going to celebrate the last game and I was hoping maybe we could do something a little fun after," she ran his hand up his arm and Edward almost looked sick at the notion of sleeping with her. I covered my laugh with my hand, feeling sorry for Jessica,
"I'm dating someone," Edward rushed out causing my own head to turn, oh how would my boy play this one?
"Oh, um well maybe I can meet her at the game tonight, she'll be there right," Jessica knew this wasn't true.
"Yes," Did he seriously just throw himself under that bus? God help the boy.
"Fine, I'll meet her tonight," Jessica turned on her heel and marched toward her own table muttering and cursing under her breath, "Oh god Jasper, what did I just do?"
"Lie to Jessica Stanley, the biggest gossip in Forks High School about your relationship status," Edward sighed laying his head down on the table, "If you are worried about it just ask someone to be your girlfriend. I am fairly certain the majority of our school will say yes,"
Rolling his eyes Edward mumbled something low under his breath.
"Speak up, brat,"
"I don't want a girlfriend," he sighed out looking defeated
"Too bad find one you're the one who said you were dating someone,"
"No Jas," he sighed again (I think he was going for some kind of record,) "I don't ever want a girlfriend, because I don't like girls. Jasper, I'm gay," he said looking at me as if he expected me to freak.
To be honest, I was slightly surprised that he was, then I shouldn't have been, he never liked girls but he also never liked boys. "Then ask out a guy," I didn't know what advice to give him, "if you're not ready to come out just ask Alice to pretend,"
"Why don't you?" He turns to face me fully like he just had the best idea of the world.
"What ask Alice out, no thanks she's like my sister,"
"No, pretend to date me. I mean you're openly bi, everyone knows it, your my best friend it would make sense if something was going on," He waved his hands around smiling at his own idea.
I rolled my eyes the heartthrob Edward Masen was begging me to date fake him. Edward was not unaware of my crush on him, he couldn't be because I wasn't hiding it. Damn, I was almost a blatant about it as Jessica was. Well why not pretend.
"Yeah fine I'll be your fake boyfriend," Edward smiled brightly, "On one condition," the smile was gone now and I could see the fear in the younger boy's eyes.
"What is it?" His sweet voice was warry. I smiled darkly,
"You have to do whatever i say for the next five months," Yeah I was going to have fun with this.
