11. Chapter eleven: I miss you

We pulled into the driveway, and I stared at the house reluctantly. Jade grabbed my hand and gave it a light squeeze, she could tell I was scared. "It's okay, I know you guys will work this out." 

I nodded and opened the door. "Here, April, let me help," Jade got out and ran around the car, she held out a hand and I took it. She helped me stand up and half carried me out of the car. I felt numb and weak with sadness and worry. I didn't have the strength to feel right now. 

We walked up to the door and Jade rang the doorbell. Anne quickly answered, greeting us with a smile. Her smile instantly faded when she saw my state. She invited us in and started asking tons of questions. 

"What happened?" her voice sounded worried. "Where's Harry?!" 

I immediately looked at Jade then back at Anne. "He's not here?" My eyes widened and my heart started beating fast. I couldn't stop trembling and I felt a little scared. 

"No, the last time I saw him was before the party. What's going on?" 

"I'll explain everything to you after I get April upstairs." Jade said as she lead me upstairs. 

When we got up to my room I sat down on the edge of my bed. The outfit I was wearing was soaking wet so Jade got me another one. She walked over to my dresser and got a fresh pair of clothes. Then she walked back over to me and slipped off the wet clothes I was wearing and replaced them with dry ones. She wraps a towel around my shoulders so my hair wouldn't wet my clothes. 

"Stay here. I'm going to explain things to Harry's mom." She says squeezing my hand before she walks out the door. 

I laid down in bed staring at the ceiling. This was the first time I felt worthless, absolutely 100% worthless. What if Adam was using me for... for sex? Harry could've just been saying that because he was jealous. But would he actually make up the part about him only wanting me for my body? You know it's actually amazing how wrong you can be about a person. They can be the opposite of what you imagined them to be. They can be total douches. When you thought they cared about you. I felt disgusted. Like even if I took a million showers it'd still feel like I bathed in trash. What was I thinking? I was gonna trust him with my first time. I was gonna let him take my virginity. I trusted him, and he sweet talked me into something I didn't want to do, because I was drunk... Just thinking about him touching me in the slightest way makes me sick to my stomach. I sprang out of bed and ran to the bathroom as fast as I could. I put my hand over my mouth and fell to my knees, then started to throw up in the toilet. 

I continued vomit for about three minutes before sitting back on the cool bathroom tiles, my entire body shaking. I was to weak to get up, so I sat there feeling sorry for myself. After years of being abused, I don't think I've ever felt this bad. 

A couple minutes later I heard Jade walk back up the stairs and enter my room. "April?... April?!" She ran into the bathroom and gasped when she saw me on the floor. "Oh my gosh!" 

She didn't have to ask if I threw up she already knew. She ran to my side and hugged me, rubbing my back in a comforting way. She helped me up and I brushed my teeth and rinsed out my mouth. "Thanks." I spoke up for the first time tonight. 

"Your welcome. Feeling better now?" I nodded. She placed an arm around my waist and helped me back to my room. I sat on my bed and Jade sits next to me. 

Suddenly, I couldn't hold back the tears any longer. Before I even realized what was happening, I broke down and started sobbing hysterically. Jade wrapping her arms around me and pulled me into a hug, allowing me to cry on her shoulder. "It's okay, it's going to be okay," she hushed me. "Just let it out. I'm here for you girl. It's okay." 

"Jade... I love him... and he'll... never talk to me again!" I continued to sob into her shoulder. 

"April, I'm sure he loves you too, I know he does." She replied reassuringly. 

"If I were him I'd h-hate me! I'm such a terrible p-person!" 

"You're not a terrible person April, your human, and people make mistakes." She said softly, trying to make me feel better. "He's not going to hate you." 

"How do you know th-that?" I whispered to her, tears pooling in my eyes. 

"I just do. To be honest, he's a pretty decent guy. You guys will work this out." She said putting her arm around my shoulders.

"You think?" I sniffled, swallowing back the tears.

"Yes." She said confidently. We sat in silence for a moment. 

"Thanks for taking care of me." I said looking up at her. 

"No problem, what are best friends for?" She smiled and handed me a tissue box. Eventually, I calm myself, wipe my eyes, and take a deep breath. 

"I'm sorry, Jade." 

"What for?" 

"Crying all over you, losing it like that, I just…" I trail off, shaking my head. 

"April, it's okay. Really. I get it." She says. I wrap my arms around her holding her close. 

Jade is a true friend. She cares about me and helps me whenever she can. I'm lucky to have a friend like her. She's been a total lifesaver more than once. She's done so much for me with no conditions. What more could I ask for? 


We stayed there for an hour waiting for Harry to show up or at least call. 

Finally I gave up waiting and tried calling him. Voicemail. I tried again and again and after about the 20th time I left a voice mail. “Harry please answer, I need you right now. I do care about you. I need you to call me back." I said on the first voice mail. I tried again and left another voice mail “Harry, I know you’re mad but-" I lost myself and started bawling. “Please just call me. I screwed up okay? What happened tonight was a huge mistake. The only reason I did it was because I was drunk, I wasn't thinking. I've been... miserable without you and I miss you." I hung up after that. It was 2 am by now. I texted and called him atleast 100 times and got no response. I laid down in my bed and just cried on Jade's lap. She didn’t leave me that night, and eventually sleep did come.
