4. Shit Hits The Fan

After my Valentine's Day with Mark. I was in such a wonderful and good mood. I got to school feeling amazing, happy and in love for the very first time in my life. Nothing could bring me down. I made my way to the lockers to put my coat up. As i opened the door I saw AD i called out his name and waved. He turned around and looked at me raised his hand and flipped me off. What? What was that? Did i do something? I mean i know we haven't talked since Jade enrolled at my school but that wasn't called for. I shrugged it off and put my coat into my locker and walked to the girls bathroom. I placed my purse down on the sink and took and deep breathe. My mind wandered back to Mark. I wonder what he was doing right now? Was he thinking about me? Was he missing me, like i was missing him? I smiled at the thought. Suddenly the door busted open and in came Jade with her flock following behind her like a murder of black crows.
"Hi, Jade" i said my body was shaking i had to hold on to the sink just to steady myself. The look in her eyes was of pure hatred. I wonder who pissed her off.
"Hi Jade? Is that all you can say you BITCH!" her hand came swinging at my face and knocking me into the vent. I tasted the blood filling my mouth. I reached my hand up to my mouth and saw it dripping down my hands. I staggered to my feet "what the hell was that for, jade!"
"what was it for? what was it for! Your fucking Mark!" she said lunging for me. Brittany and Tasha grabbed her by the arms to hold her back. My heart stopped beating in my chest and for a slipt second i felt like i was dreaming . How did she find out? I swallowed hard and rasied my hands up as to surrender " Jade, listen"
"No shut the fuck up! AD already told me everything!" Jade yelled and gave me a shove. The group of girls surround me. My breathing became rigid a memory of the last time i was jumped flooded my mind. It was deja vu again. I didn't do anything before and i still didn't do anything. "Jade, i didn't do anything you and Mark weren't dating. You said so." I said looking at her sympathetically. Jades face showed no remorse. All i saw was hatred for Mark and I's relationship. " I LOVE HIM! AND YOUR FUCKING HIM?! I CALLED YOU MY COUSIN!" she screamed she raised her hand again and slapped me. I screamed as the pain shot through my body. "Can we just jump this bitch!" screamed Tasha. I begun to cry. I was so afraid, where was Mark? I needed him. I needed him to protect me and tell them the truth. We were in love. They had no right to attack me. "Yeah bitch. AD saw you and Mark at the theater! How long you been fucking huh!" She pushed me against the wall her face only inches from mine. "HUH!" she screamed grabbing my face in her hands and force me to make eye contact with her. "Not gonna say anything huh bitch?" she let go and backed away "That's fine, that's fine. Mark told me what went down between you two" Oh thank god. I sighed in relief. I knew he would come through for me and tell them what happened. He does love me. "He told me how he took you to lunch and you attacked him. Sucked his dick in the car and how he turned you down but you started crying and he felt so sorry for you that fucked you out of pity but you said if he didn't date you, you'd tell me." she stated. What? My heart broke within me. No, no, Mark wouldn't do that. He wouldn't do that too me "Your lying. Mark wouldn't say that." i said silently shaking my head. "Mark loves me...he said it"
The girls started laughing. Right in front of my face. I swallowed the lump in my throat. The girls continued to laugh at me saying I'm delusional. I looked around the bathroom at the girls who were with Jade and Tasha witnessing their attack on me and in between them was Cordelia. The tears started to fall down my cheek and i swear i saw a smile appear on her face. I couldn't take it anymore. I parted a space between them and ran out the bathroom to the parking lot with them right on my trail. When i got out the school I saw Mark. I stood watching him by his car with his cousin and AD. Devon gave him a tap on his arm and he turned around and made locked eyes with me. I walked over to him "How could you?" is said

"Everything you said was a lie! You said you loved me!" i yelled at him and pushed him. He caught himself and looked down.
"Why?" i asked in between my tears. Mark looked up and over my shoulder. I turned around and saw Jade and her group behind me . Jade stood with her arms folded over her body watching us.
"I never loved you Amelia. I never said that. You know Jade is my everything. Who could love someone like you?" He walked past me and bumped me as he made his way over to Jade. When he reached her he wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed her. The same lips that were once kissing my body, my lips. The same lips that smiled when he chased me around his house. The same lips that formed the words  I love you were now kissing another girl. I couldn't believe it. My whole world everything was falling apart because of a guy i thought was a friend told my so called friend about me and my first love, my first boyfriend dating. Jade walks to me, smiles and hits me one more time knocking me down to the ground. "You even look at me or Mark or any one of my friends i will make sure it is much much worse. Your getting off lucky  you bitch. But i promise you, your life here at this school is gonna be HELL! And don't you even think about telling anyone what happened her" she finishes by spitting on me and walks away..with Mark. He never even looks back at me to see if i was ok. None of them did. They left me there.  I pulled myself up and sat there in the parking lot with my face in my hands crying. I don't understand how this happened. How Mark could betray me? Everything that happened between us, the laughs we shared, the kisses, the love making between us. He threw it all away for Jade? When she was fucking AD? I got lost in my own depression i didn't hear the security guards and other students walk out and help me
 " Are you ok?"

"what happened?"

"Omg look at her face"
I heard them all say but i didn't answer them. I didn't wanna talk, I wanted answers. Why did this happen. How did this happen. Why was it always me that bad things happened too. I was beginning to think GOD hated me. He gave my mother a horrible husband that flipped out on me all the time. Friends, well not so much friends anymore who attacked me again. I didn't understand it. Why me? Why always me?
When i got home my mom and step dad had a field day. My step dad blamed me for even trusting that she would change. I knew she didn't i didn't want to go i told him his response to that was "You need to fucking grow a back bone, Amelia!" I rolled my eyes and  asked them to leave me alone. I need to think. They exchanged looks and laid down and pulled the covers  over my face. I started to crying before i knew it i fell asleep.

When i woke up it was dark in my room. I let out and yawn and rolled over my digital clock said seven pm. I stretched and rolled out of the bed. I opened my door and walked down the hall to the bathroom. When i was finished i walked to the living room and out the window. My mind went back to the incident in the parking lot at school. I shook my head trying to shake the incident from my brain for good. I looked up and saw a truck pull around the corner and park in front of my house. Who is that? i asked myself. The door opens and a silhouette of a guy gets out. He was of slim stature. Mark. A smile escapes my face maybe he was here to tell me he lied to protect me? Maybe that was it . Yeah. He still loves me. I was about to run and open the door when i saw him raise his arm up and pull back and throw something at my door. I heard a boom and shattering. He runs back into the the truck and it drives out. I turned on the porch light  and open the door and look down and see a glass liquor bottle. Mark threw a glass bottle at my door? I start shaking and crying. Why is he doing this to me? 

"Amelia?" i hear my mom call out to me from upstairs. I quickly pull myself together "Yes mom?" i replied

"Are you ok?"

"Yes, mom. I'm fine." I said. She says ok . I then grab and broom and a dust pan. I carefully open on the door and begin to sweep up the glass careful not to step on any pieces and cut my feet. I pour the glass into a plastic bag and toss it into the trash can outside. When im done i hear the screeching of tires. I run and hide behind my mother explorer truck. I poke around and see the same truck that Mark got out of pull up again in front of my house. A group gets out laughing. "Get all of the truck" i heard a voice say. I recognized it right away. It was Jade's. I looked around from behind the truck and saw her grab Marks belt loop and pull him into her and kisses him. "Let my baby throw the first one. He has good aim" She hands him a carton of some sort. He grabs it and turns around. He stands there and opens it and throws it at my mom's truck. I heard a splat. Eggs. Their throwing eggs at my mothers truck? Why are they bring my mother into this she has done nothing wrong. My mom and me are so close she is my best friend. And right now. She is my only friend but i guess that's why they are going after her. If they cant get to me, they will go after her . While they are throwing it they are laughing and having fun defacing my mother's truck. "Yo Jade, we're all out" said Devon. Jade who never even got out the car to partake in this action opens the door and looks it over "Good, let's go. Get in" They drop the cartons on our grass and gets in. Mark walks towards the truck. I watch him as he does. My heart drops  this was the guy i loved. I didn't even recognize him anymore. He looks up at the house "I'm sorry Amelia." he whispers "I love you." he backs away, runs back to the truck and gets in and drives away. I stood up when i was sure the coast was clear. I look over my mother truck. I touch the yolks as they dripped down the truck. I looked down and shook my head. God, why me?
