This journey with Micah & Derek has been like a rollercoaster ride! One day they’re just best friends and then they realize that they have been hiding their true feelings from one another. In other words they want to be more than friends. Of course things become even more messy once Derek’s girlfriend Tiffany announces that she’s pregnant! Put your headphones, share with friends, and let us know in the comments what you would do in this situation. Is Derek being manipulative? Should Micah just move on?
Micah remains stunned by the news. She has so many emotions; hurt, confusion, disappointment, and anger being most among them. She tries to catch herself. She works hard not to betray her emotions on her face. She looks at Tiffany as if she couldn’t care less.
Congratulations on your new baby.
Before Tiffany can say anything else, Micah turns and walks away. Her heart is heavy in her chest and she doesn’t know what to do. She thinks about her time with Derek and how much it had meant to her before. She knew that was all done. It had to be. Derek was going to be a father. Whatever they were going to be would have to fall off.
She didn’t say anything to Derek. She did not trust herself to keep her emotions in check. Derek won’t stop blowing her phone up. She just ignores him. She feels like it is best to just try to forget what happened and at this point she isn’t even sure of their friendship.
One day as Micah is leaving her place she finds herself standing face to face with Derek.
