7. Chapter seven: Jealous?

After our last class was over, the bell rung signalizing the end of the day. Me and April walked home again. This time she didn't talk to me, she just walked silently next to me. Is she mad at me? 

I saw Adam leaning against a near by tree. He smiled when he saw April, "Hey April!" He jogged over to us giving her a slight wave and ignoring me completely. 

We stopped walking, "Hey Adam," She smiled back. He looked at me, it was awkward considering we both hate each other. We both looked at each other for a moment, not saying anything. 

Adam turned back to April, "So I'll see you at my party tomorrow, right?" 

"Yea, sure. Do you want me to bring anything?" She asked. 

"No. Just bring your cute self and we'll be fine," he said winking at her. I was so pissed off right now, and it didn't help that he was fucking flirting with her. Right in front of me. All I could do was stand there and stare into space and pretend I didn't notice her simper at him and him shooting her that cocky grin.

"Ok, see you there.." She smiled and waved as he walked off. 

"See you tomorrow gorgeous," he said then walked away. 
"Text you later!" He yelled back, then joined his friends again by the tree. He has her number? When did this happen?! I glared at him, but tried to keep my anger in check. It was a difficult task to do, I don't remember the last time I've felt such a large amount of hatred and dislike for someone. It's hard to keep something like this in. I had kept all my thoughts, all my emotions, to myself. I held my fists at my sides and my face frozen. 

"Harry, what's wrong?" April asked as if she didn't know already. I rolled my eyes and walked away. I didn't want a repeat of what happened at lunch and I didn't want to take my anger out on her. 
"Nothing." I said quickly. 

Harry was so mad at me he wouldn’t even let me walk next to him on our walk back to his house. Every time I tried he’d quicken his pace, leaving me to almost jog next to him to keep up with him. It wasn’t helping that I found his anger amusing or that the glint in his emerald eyes is really cute. We got to the house and I had to catch the door with my hand so he wouldn’t slam it in my face. I shut the door carefully and locked it while he pulled his blazer off and tossed it on the couch, emptying his pockets in the tray on his counter. 

“You done yet?” I asked him but he only glanced up at me, his eyes glared. “Harry, you’re being ridiculous.” I said calmly. 

“He was all over you! How do you expect me to react?” There it was. The reaction. My little volcano erupting. The veins in his neck hard and his eyes pure green steel.
"He didn't even touch me." I said looking at him annoyed. Harry shook his head and went to move passed me but I held his sides. He looked over the top of my head, to mad to look me in the eyes. 

"I don't think you should go to that party," he said folding his arms.

"Oh, and why not?" I said waiting for him to explain. This should be good, I thought. He said nothing. He just had a blank stare, which didn’t shock me. He couldn’t explain it even if he tried. Clearly he didn't want me going because of Adam. "Why don't you just come with me?" I said. 

"Because those parties are stupid, do you know what people do at those kinds of parties?" I couldn't help feeling a little offended, considering me and Jade are going to the party. I rolled my eyes and put my hand on my hip. 

"Your not jealous of him, are you?" I looked him dead in the eyes. He narrowed his eyes at me shaking his head. 

"No! Why would I be jealous of someone like that!?" He pulled away from my grip and turned away. I pulled his arm and made him face me. 

"I told you I don't like him! We're just friends," I explained, he turned away again. "Harry listen!-" I stepped in front of him, he cut me off. 

"I said I don't want to go and I don’t want to be around you right now. Leave me alone." He said harshly shaking my grip again. His eyes were green fire staring straight into mine. I felt like my heart had been ripped out. There was a feeling of grey around me, it was a mist that wouldn't rise. Suddenly I felt my face get hot and I narrowed my eyes at him. My frustration and anger exploded out of me in a savage outburst. A tear rolled down my cheek. His entire expression changed. He truly seemed guilty, you could see it in his eyes that he regretted what he said. Yet I the anger inside me boiled higher. 

"You don't want to be around me?! Fine. Your such an ass Harry!" I hit him in the chest and put emphasis on the word ‘ass’. Harry stared at me in disbelief. He had never seen me this mad before. Silence filled the room, but the tension never left. After standing there looking at each other for what seemed like hours I broke the silence. "Im going to that party!" I spun around and started walking up the stairs towards my room. I slammed my door leaving him standing alone downstairs. I pulled out my phone and texted Jade. 

Me: Hey, I need a ride to Adam's party tomorrow... 
Jade: I thought Harry was taking you? 
Me: He's being a jerk >:( 
Jade: Aww what happened... Hang on, let me call you. 

My phone rang a few seconds later. I picked it up. “April!” Jade’s voice answers happily. “So glad to hear from you. How's it going?”
I clench my fist, scowling into the phone. 

“Horrible!” Jade doesn’t say anything, urging me to continue. I let out everything thats been on my mind since I stepped through the door. “He’s a jerk!” I pace back and forth, secretly hoping Harry wasn't  listening through the door. I heard his door slam and continued talking. "He’s annoying and I can’t stand being around him anymore! Oh, and did mention how stubborn he is? You can’t imagine how badly I want to rip his head off!" I say with an irritated tone. I explained that he didn't want me to go to the party because of Adam. And that he was obviously jealous. Of course I didn't mean any of what I was saying, but I was so mad at him. Ugh. 

“April, April.” Jade butts in. “Calm down. I’m sure you guys will get along again... eventually. Give it some time. The hate should wear off.” No matter how hard I tried to hold it in, a laugh a escapes me. 

“Wear off? You’re kidding, right? That’s like telling someone that their permanent tattoo will wear off soon. Impossible.” I visualize Jade frowning. 

“And you called him the stubborn, annoying jerk?” 

“Jade, I can’t believe you’re taking his side!” I gasp, placing a hand on my hip. 

"I’m on no one’s side," She tells me. "I’m only trying to help you out." I could hear the concern in her voice. I took a deep breath. 

"Your right... Sorry, I just need to cool down." 

"It's fine. I'll give you a ride to the party tomorrow okay?" 

"Yea, thanks. Bye."
