There are 3 important things you should know about Skylar.
One, she likes Sehun ever since freshman year.
Two, Kai is her best friend since forever.
Three, it’s not ideal to ask Kai to be your wingman, but because Skylar is desperate, she asks him anyway.

“You wanted brutal honesty. I'm giving you brutal honesty. Guys are simple-minded. They see cleavage and they're wagging their tails left and right.”
“Prick,” I mutter. “Don't make me regret asking for your judgment. What else?”
Kai scans me up and down, eyes like a hawk hunting for its prey. “Your lips.” Um. Okay? What's wrong with my lips? I send him a confused look and he appears simultaneously taken aback and insulted that I have no clue. “Why are they chapped all the time? It's like a guys repellent.”
I move my hand to smack him but he blocks my hit. “God I really hate you right now,” I groan.
“Trust me, having sisters I notice all the important details.”
Though annoyed, I can't believe I'm considering all of his so-called advice right now. “So what should I do?”
He claps his hands together as if he's a coach guiding his player to the right track. “S.B.H.T.”
“Lip Scrub, lip Balm, Hydrate—as in drink your water—then, lip Tint.”
“You seem proud to know this grooming technique.”
“Minus the tint, why do you think girls can't resist these lips?” He winks, causing me to roll my eyes even harder.
“Gross. Please spare me the gory details.”
