Ryder looked at him in disbelief- he wanted to believe him, he really did- but how could he? He'd just found a blade in his bathroom, he couldn't just let that go. So, he said the first thing that came to mind.

"Show me your wrists," he demanded. Maybe it was a weird request, but he had to know if Jake was hurting himself. Jake shook his head again.

"I don't have to prove anything to you, Ryder, I'm not cutting myself!" he snapped, turning his attention away from Ryder, looking down at the floor. Ryder really wished he could believe Jake,

"Jake, there's something not right about this."

"Don't you dare tell Puck," he said with desperation. "No matter what. I swear, dude, I'll... I'll never speak to you again."
