1. Athena finally agrees to be Kenji's pretend girlfriend. From that moment, you know it's going to get really crazy. And those rules they set for each other? They'll eventually break those.

"You can hold my hand. But you're not going to kiss me, you're not going to hug me other than when Athena—look can we just call her Abigail? I feel stupid saying my own name when I'm talking about someone else."

"Fine, Abigail then. And it's not like I'm ever going to want to kiss or hug you anyway."

2. The endless petty arguments and fights, because you know deep inside they really are so fond of each other.

The rest of the day went by pretty slowly because Athena wasn't around. No one's arguing with me, no one's giving me dirty looks or shouting at me...

I kinda miss her.

4. When Kenji said I love you too in his own way. We can't breathe!

"Because I am serious about what I said and what I feel. I love you, Kenji."

He lightly poked my forehead. "You know that's like saying you can't breathe. Go home, okay? Good night."

...

I was just about to get in the car again when he said, "Athena, wait."

I stopped and turned back to look  at him.

"I can't...I can't breathe."

6. The confrontation between Athena and Abigail, after the latter accused her of being a gold digger that's why she's pretending to be Kenji's girlfriend. Our heroine stands up for herself!

I just didn't have the energy for this. "Whatever, Abigail," I said, freeing my arm from her grip.

7. When Athena breaks her heart upon overhearing Kenji and Abigail's conversation during the party.

"So who do you like more, me or her?" I froze hearing Abigail asked that question.

"Of course I like you more. We were together for a long time," Kenji said.

8. That moment when Athena sees Abigail inside Kenji's bedroom. How many times does she have to break her heart? *sobs*

I climbed the stairs to Kenji's room. "Kenji?" I called again, opening the door.

Abigail was sitting on Kenji's bed.

He pulled away and looked at me, then held my hand tightly. "Athena...I don't think I can do this anymore."
