Sunny and I are JUST friends.

Sunny and I are JUST FRIENDS.


Ducky and Sunny have a pretty special friendship and working together at Sunny’s dad’s bookstore has only brought them closer.

But when Ducky notices Sunny laughing a little too hard at his jokes and giving him moony eyes, he doesn’t know what to do. His guy friends aren’t available and Dawn, Maggie, and Amalia are too close to Sunny to understand.

Ducky knows most guys would love to be with Sunny, but he can’t pretend to be into her when he’s not.

Right now, the last thing Sunny can handle is more pain. How can he let her know without hurting their friendship?
