7. A Question of Worth

When Louis and Harry leave, I walk inside to find a smiling Skyler soaking in the night's events. I can tell by the look on her face that it's been the best night of her life.
I just wish mine had gone better.
I feel guilty about the awkwardness of what happened.
I'm sure Louis's intention wasn't to kiss me, and he certainly wouldn't want Harry to know that we did.
I hope Harry believes us. I wouldn't want Louis to be totally humiliated. He is a nice guy just trying to make a below average girl feel better about herself.
When I sit next to Skyler, she breaks from her dazed stare to look at me.
"So, tell me everything!"
I roll my eyes, "You first."
She tries to pretend that she'd rather hear about my night, but I know she'd rather spill about her and Harry. 
"Ugh, fiiiine, we went to a movie and a really romantic dinner. He put his arm around me in the movie and held my hand in the car! On the drive home, he said he's never cared about anyone this much, and that's why he's taking it slow. Isn't that the sweetest thing you've ever heard?"
I can't help but be totally happy for her, that's just who I am. I always care about my friend's happiness before my own. That's why I let her tell me everything before I share with her.
After she's done telling about her amazing night, she turns back to me, "So your turn!"
"I don't know, he just showed up with Titanic-"
"Your favorite movie, how sweet!"
"Yeah, he said he remembered me saying it."
"That's adorable Mandy! He so likes you!"
I roll my eyes and continue, "We just watched the movie, then you guys showed up."
"And you two leaning in to kiss was nothing?!"
"That's not what happened," I say to defend Louis. 
"Then what happened?"
"I don't know, he just leaned in."
"To kiss you!"
"Nah, he wouldn't do that."
"And why not?"
"Come on, I don't need to say it..."
"Yes you do!"
"He's Louis Tomlinson, Skyler!"
"Yeah, and I'm dating Harry Styles!"
"But you're beautiful, and I'm..."
"Funny, gorgeous, talented?"
"I'm none of those things."
"Amanda, you're ALL of those things. And Louis sees that. Now you need to see it too."
"I'm going to bed," I say, not wanting to get in a fight with her.
"Okay, go to bed. But one of these days you're gonna have to face up to the facts."
"What facts?"
"You're worth more than you think."
I force a smile, then go to my room.
Crawling into bed that night, one thought keeps crossing my mind- that maybe Skyler is right.
Then I change my mind.
I'm worth as much as I feel- nothing.
