Autumn's POV

 

I sat up from the toilet, wiping away the last tear that had fallen from my eyes. I unlocked my phone again and I answered the hateful notice saying: 'look I'm really sorry, but i had an emergency!!' My fingers were debating whether to lie, or to tell the truth. It would be so much easier for me if I lied-- I probably wouldn't get caught, but then again, I don't lie, I just don't. I finally hit send, wondering if i would end up regretting it later. The thought pondered in my mind, but I tried to just get the annoying thought out of my mind. I stayed in the bathroom just thinking at what terrible thing I had done to deserve their hate, when suddenly I heard a knock on the bathroom door. "shit. . " i muttered under my breath. I need to think of an excuse... fast. To my surprise, it wasn't Marissa at the door, it was her mum. She said "Marissa?" I replied, "Yes Ms. Miller?" Without hesitation, Marissa's mum asked me "Are you alright love? Is everything okay?" I faked a groaning noise, and said "Yes, just a stomach ache, I- I think it's that time of the month and I have uhhh.. Rea-really bad cramps." I heard fast footsteps coming up the stairs, and then Marissa said "Autumn, you alright??" Her mum replied to her saying "Yes honey, she's alright, she'll be done soon, just some cramps." I heard foot steps go back downstairs, and then her mum continued our conversation. "Okay, I have supplies for you in the sink cabinet, feel free. Do you want to go home? We can take care of you here." I thought about staying here, faking my period, and I thought about staying home, being able to just be me... I thought long and hard and then replied "Could I just get a ride home please?" I got up and got ready to act out me on my period. I unlocked the bathroom door and her mum was standing right there and she said "Of course love, but call us if it gets too bad okay?" I nodded and she headed for the stairs. Right before she headed for the stairs she said one last thing. "Marissa really appreciates having you as a friend. It's sad to say that she hasn't had many friends in the past and it's really nice to know she has you. Thank you. From now on, feel free to call me mum." She and I exchanged warm smiles and I nodded once more before I went into Autumn's room to retrieve my items. I walked out of her room and went downstairs. My guess was they were in the kitchen because I heard faded voices coming from that area in her house. Before walking in I heard Marissa's muffled voice speak "Mum I can't lose her, she's my only friend. She is a great friend and I'm lucky I have her. I just hope she isn't going home because she doesn't like me." Right as she got the last part out, I felt absolutely terrible. I couldn't leave her tonight. Then I heard her mum reply "Love she has bad cramps, I'm sure she isn't doing this to leave you intentionally." A pan of guilt went through me, and I realized I couldn't leave tonight. And, well staying here, would make up for my lie to her about my period. So, i guess there's one way out to this. I went through the classy kitchen doors and they both smiled as I walked in. Well, their smiles were weak, but I knew it wouldn't be that way soon enough. Her mum hopped off her bar stool and set her mug down. She said "You ready hun?" I then took one last glance at Marissa and she kept that same weak smile on her face. I then replied back "Well the cramps are sort of going for now, and plus the last days are the worst for me, so I think I could stay-- I mean, like if you wanted me tonight." I looked down in shame, I can't believe I had lied to them earlier. Ugh, when did I suddenly start lying? Then Marissa shot up. "Yes yes yes!! Mum yes!! She's staying!!" Marissa and her mum showed their dazzling smiles, and I giggled. Her mum said "Of course that works! So glad you're staying! Want something to drink and eat? I can take your bags right back upstairs too!" Marissa and I giggled again and I sat down on one of the comfy bar stools with Marissa. We had some great conversations and I totally forgot about the text I received from the bitches earlier today. I'll deal with their horrible bullshit later because it shouldn't be bothering my time with Marissa!
