I didn't want to ruin that chance by involuntarily pushing him away when we just found each other again. I slowly slipped my hand out of Tatum's grip and moved it up so that I was holding onto his arm. I nudged him slightly as I turned to face Cal again. "Tatum... this is Cal. The guy I met at the aquarium the other day," I said as a way to diffuse the awkward tension between the two.
