So Ryan's fully aware that Marissa can be hurtful to Taylor but thinks its totally okay to ask her out and take care of her instead of Taylor...? You make hints that he likes Taylor but all of his actions point toward liking Marissa. Frankly, if this is how he behaves when he likes Taylor, it's hurtful and she shouldn't be with him. She's shaking at Cotillion and he leaves her to check on Marissa... If he truly likes her, then that doesn't make sense. When Ryan likes someone, he does EVERYTHING for them. He's never leave her in that state.
And now, she's got a date, three days after he KNOWS she cried herself to sleep because her half sister blamed her for her parents divorce, and he asks Marissa on a date...? I mean, he couldn't hurt her worse if he was trying. I get that you think this is how a triangle goes, but it mostly looks like Ryan/Marissa with a rejected Taylor who keeps getting her hopes up only to have them dashed.
Also, the pacing is way too fast. You jump from scene to scene without any pause. It's be better if you took the time to flesh out each scene and character. Instead, you skip over all the middle stuff to get to the next blow to Taylor's self esteem.

Aww, the story is unfolded, i am kind of interested to see how Taylor fits into the crazy life of Julie Cooper. she isn't the daughter anyone seems to want, and she is kind of left out. she is lost in the bubble of friendship an her sister has kind of overstepped the Taylor bubble on the way to Ryan. What is a girl to do when she is settling for Luke and her heart really wants Ryan? I guess she sits and waits. I do quite enjoy this thanksgiving twist for sure though. Ryan and Taylor are getting some of their own time together, will this mean more for them, will truths come out? Curiosity ensues. Lets see where this ball goes. Thanksgiving here we come.
