As Long As You Love Me

Bad boy Justin needs to be taught a lesson. So his teachers come up with a plan and pairs him off with the best behaved girl in school for a school assignment! What happens when sparks fly between them? Will Justin and Selena admit their feelings to each other?


29. Nothing

Justin’s POV

Everyone’s eyes were on me, I didn’t know how to react to what I just heard. It couldn’t be true. It just couldn’t. I looked over at a confused Selena, as her eyes were darting back and forth between me and everyone else. Her eyebrows were scrunched up together and I kept trying to tell myself it was all a lie.

“Don’t you remember me Selena?”

Her mother sat next to her, reminding her about who I was. I stepped back from her hospital bed, trying to comprehend how my whole world literally shattered right in front of me. I was just some face to her, nothing special. She may not remember our better times but surely she could at least remember our past, the past I wish I never had to recall again.

I gathered my books, whilst cursing under my breath. “What a retard. Putting me with kiss-ass, suck up, good two shoes, stupid little…”

Tell me about it. She wears jeans all the time and can’t stay upright for more than twenty seconds. And she has like basically no friends, all she does is sit in the corner of the cafeteria at school and read like a loner.”

“Can we just forget about this? I didn’t exactly get to choose my partner, did I?”

The project, our assignment. We still haven’t finished it yet, but luckily Mr Anderson heard about Selena’s…accident, and pushed the due date. Except how were we supposed to complete it now that Selena has no recognition of it at all?

I snapped back to reality and saw all Selena did was get even more confused. Her heart rate was going quickly and beeping loudly for all of us to hear. I could’ve sworn it was my heart thumping in my ears. Everything got all loud because both our Mum’s were trying to get her to remember me. She looked at me once for a good 5 seconds and then turned away looking hurt.

“I don’t know that guy! I’ve never seen him in my life! I don’t remember anything!” Selena yelled, causing an eerie silence to occur all around us.

All the tears that have been held in broke out. I felt my mother put a hand on my shoulder but I shook my head, walking out of the room quickly.

I had never cried over a girl, other than Jessica. The aching feeling in my chest felt exactly the same, only this time it was technically not a break-up. Then how come my heart felt like it was taken out of my ribcage and punched several times?

I walked down the lonely hallway, rubbing my eyes over and over again, attempting to stop the tears. I stopped walking and picked a random wall to sit at. I was a couple metres away from Selena’s hospital door, avoiding the horrible reality. Nurses passed by me, asking me if I was alright. I had to nod my head, acting like nothing was wrong. But, everything was falling apart. One of the most important people in my life doesn’t remember me. The person who changed my life and made me become a better person, someone who knew how to feel and love, doesn’t remember me.

My mind was clouded with memories of me and Selena.

Our first date.

Our first kiss.

How could she just forget me just like that? We’ve been through so much and now this happens. I love her. The only other girl I’ve loved after Jessica. She knew how to make me feel better on bad days. She managed to make me laugh until my stomach ached. Why did this have to happen to me? I’m just bad luck. All my previous years of constantly bullying and making fun of her came back to me. Karma was a bitch. This must be some kind of sign. A sign that she will never forgive me for my past torments at her.

I stood up, brushing dirt off my pants. I walked over to the nearest bathroom to clean myself up. I looked in the mirror, seeing bags under my eyes and deep red eyes. I grabbed a damp paper towel, dabbing my face with it. I sighed, leaning on the sink.

Her words were still stuck in my head, being replayed over and over again.

“I don’t know that guy! I’ve never seen him in my life! I don’t remember anything!”

I squeezed the paper towel, shutting my eyes tightly, I fumbled with the wrinkled paper towel in my clammy hands. My world as I knew it had been shattered and all I could do is sit and stare at my horrible state. I was numb, nothing more. Like all life inside of me was sucked out. I was just numb, neither sad nor angry. I felt nothing.
