The best part of that is that her mom who left when she was little and who she already sees as super shady was the one who told her that his uncle was her dad so there’s basically no chance it isn’t going dramatic when she finds out

❝ I’m serious,” Hector said, no longer smiling. “Do you feel anything for Orion, or is it like you and Matt? He’s too much of a pal to you?”
“No, that’s definitely not it.” She thought about what Morpheus had revealed to her—that in some ways she might want Orion even more than she wanted Lucas. “I’m really attracted to Orion.”
“And do you care about him?”
“A lot.”
“Then commit yourself to him.” Hector regarded Helen with complete candor. “They’re both waiting for you to make a choice. And none of you are going to move on until you do. You, Helen. You have to make this choice.”
Helen wanted to shout “Lucas,” but she pictured the disgusted look that she knew Hector would give her for preferring her cousin over Orion, and swallowed Lucas’s name. “I have,” she said with more conviction than she felt. “I have,” she repeated.
Hector smirked at her. “The first time you said, ‘I have’ was pretty believable. The second? Not so much.”
“What am I going to do?” she groaned in response, hitting her forehead against the bag. “I feel like a Ping-Pong ball. ❞
