Just because he was not interested in girls doesn't mean he could not appreciate Lydia. In fact he could and nobody should judge him... Not even Ari with her knowing smirks!
It was not like he was attracted to Lydia, it was just that she was very pleasant to look at. Besides he had nothing to do. Ari had left him with Lydia, not to forget with a huge smirk, and he had nothing to do.
Besides Lydia could talk! From the moment he met her till now she had not closed for even a minute. To be honest he was getting tired.
No wonder Ari left them.
Lydia suddenly stops talking making Kai's attention come back to her.
"Just how close are you with Ari?" She asks, her expression curious. "She never had any close friends before. She was very close to her dad when she grew up so it hurt her a lot when her parents got divorced. She isn't much open."
Kai squints a little. He did not know anything about Ari at all!
It was not like Ari did not talk to him, she just did not say anything regarding anything about herself. Why?
He also did not ask... did he?
"Yeah yeah..." Kai mutters without thinking much about her question.
"Why aren't you guys dating?" Lydia asks again.
His eyes shoots open at once at that question that had dropped out of blue and he involuntarily gulp at that.
"We... um. .. we aren't. .. we are just friends." Kai stammered an answer, unsure why he was suddenly shy.
