I added a "trailer" type video for this movella... it's a PLL trailer but it kinda fits with the story.
And sorry all you Team Handin people out there, I didn't mean to crush your hopes and dreams ;)
I sniffed and held my head high as I started to walk. I didn't know where I was going. I was just going far from here. I reached into my pocket for my phone but remembered that I threw it against the wall at... his place. I mentally slapped myself for being so stupid. I shook my head.
How could anyone know what was happening in my life? How could she stay one step ahead of me? Was I being stalked?
I looked behind me and saw an empty street. Not even any children, and it scared me. I turned back and walked faster. I was not going to the house where everything happened. I didn't know where my father was staying. I am an idiot.
So I did what I thought I had to do. I went to Lex's house. It took me a good hour to get there because I got lost on the way... oops. I knocked on the door, and when her mom answered, I remembered how I must look.
Baggy shirt, jeans, probably messed up hair and running mascara. I must have been a mess. Not to mention my red eyes and how I was hugging my sides since it was pretty chilly out.
"Oh, honey, come in." She said opening the door immediately. I didn't trust my voice, so I just nodded.
"Here, come sit in the living room." She said. I followed her and sat on the edge of the couch cushion.
"Where's Lex?" I dared to ask.
"She's out with some friends." Her mom said. Oh yeah, I have kinda ditched her since my... issues.
"Oh." I said simply.
"Do you want to talk about it?" She asked kindly. I wish I could.
"Um, no." Ugh, I can't leave her sitting here wondering what the heck is wrong with me. "Me and Harry broke up." Wow. That was pretty hard to say.
"Oh, dear, that's tough." She said, hugging me. I nodded as tears threatened to spill. But I held them back, I've cried enough.
"It's not like I dated him for a year though." I said. "It's only been like two weeks and he has to get back to his tour. He stayed back because of what's been happening." Oh great, now I was blabbing. "Ah, sorry for rambling."
"No, you're really not." Lex's mom said. It didn't relieve me. "Do you want to change? I'm sure there's some of your clothes here. Do you need to call anyone?"
"Um, sure, I'll change. And I kinda broke my phone." I said sheepishly.
"Oh... you can use mine."
"Thank you so much." I said giving her a little smile.
"It's no worry. Now go change." She said sternly almost making me giggle. Almost. I headed upstairs and into Lex's room. I opened "my" drawer and pulled out a big sweatshirt and some sweats. I pulled them on and went to the bathroom to try and make sense of my face and hair. I looked in the mirror and, honestly, I was quite revolted.
I was a mess, with make up all over my face like I thought, and my hair was sticking in all directions. I sighed and turned on the sink.
After a good 10 minutes of scraping off dried make up and combing my tangled hair, I went back downstairs.
"Thanks for everything, again." I said.
"You shouldn't worry so much about it." Lex's mom said. "Here, call your dad." She handed me the home phone. I dialed my dad's cell. He answered on the third ring.
"Dad, it's me." I said.
"Oh! Shawna!" Um...
"Uh, try Brandin." I said suspiciously.
"[Insert Choice Swear Word Here]. Brandin, we have to talk."
"Yeah, we do." I said quietly.
