It won't work.
We talked a bit yesterday. The same way we always used to. In my mind I was just trying to talk him off a ledge, but I know in a twisted way I still want to be his friend. I know it. But it won't work. I can plainly see just from the conversation we already had, carried by me like always. I think if he could he'd use me as a tool to get her back. "See, Lexi could forgive me, and I hurt her a lot more than you." I don't know. He's doing poorly, that's obvious, and I'm doing reasonably well, which should put me in control of the situation, but instead it's left us at the same place we were so many times before.
He's going to drag me down.
And I'm worried I might let him.
