14. The Healings of a Broken Heart: 013

Saphire's POV:

I wanted to get started with my plan on that night itself, but it turned out we weren't staying again. We were heading back to Aliyah's as soon as dinner was over, but I knew one way or another, I was going to find a way to get back there.

Jane was going to pay for stealing my Stevie away! If Stevie wasn't going to break up with her, then it was Jane who was going to have it do it. I didn't care how much she liked him, all of that could never amount to how much I loved Stevie. He was the best thing that's ever happened to me - the single best to be exact.

My whole life's been filled with nothing but miseries from the moment I was born and it's continued on from there until now. But, when Stevie entered my life it was like God had finally taken mercy on me and allowed me to step into Heaven - even if it had been for a little while, it was the best time of my life and I couldn't have wished for a better way for it to have happened.

But, I should've known...I should've known it was never going to last as long as I wanted it to. One day or another, Stevie was going to slip right through my arms and into someone else's - I knew that! - so why, why was it so hard for me to accept that and just move on?

Maybe it had something to do with William having already messed up my ability to move on with my life, because let's face it, I'm stuck. I'm still going through that same day when I found out the truth about him. I can't get past that day, that betrayal, that pain. It's all gotten together and is keeping me from going on with my life. He was just another guy, another crush, nothing special, so why, why was he still stuck in my head after all these months?

Or maybe it had something to do with the fact that I was completely and unconditionally, irrevocably in love with Stevie and I could never, ever just stop, not like he wanted me to. It wasn't possible and it never will be possible. Till I'm alive, Stevie will remain only mine!

By the time we got home, I was still seething. My hands were balled into fists and my jaw was clenched tight - not that anyone could actually see it.

"Hey, Saphire, now that we're home, I have exactly where we should go tomorrow in mind," Anthony started right up as soon as I stepped into the house. "Would you like to hear it?"

"Whatever." I grumbled.

"Whoa, what's up? Anything wrong?" I turned my face away. "Come on, Saph, you know you can tell me anything." Anthony placed a warm hand on my shoulder and that was enough to set me off.

"You're my problem, ok!" I exploded out before I could stop myself. "I am so not in the mood for you and your stupid crush on me! I do not like you back and I never will! So, why the hell can't you just forget about me already?!" These were all the questions I wished I could ask myself about William, but instead of being able to do that, I was throwing them all towards Anthony, who so didn't deserve this kind of thing, but it wasn't like I could just stop myself once I started. "It's obvious that things are not going to work out for us, so why can't you just get the hint and leave me the hell alone?! Why are you always so frickin' hung up over me? Get a fuckin' girlfriend already! A real one! And forget. About. Me!"

Yelling at Anthony helped release something in me. I was panting by the end, but my heart felt lighter, like a huge burden had just been lifted up over it. But, then I saw Anthony just standing there, wide eyed and with a red face and I immediately felt sick. Sick with guilt. All my anger and frustration melted away and I was left with feeling confused and remorseful.

"Ok," he finally spoke up in a dejected voice. "I won't bother you anymore, I promise."

That was all it took to jolt me back into action.

"Anthony!" I sighed deeply. "I-I'm so sorry, I really didn't mean all that, I swear!"

"No, you're right," he turned his face away. "About everything. I shouldn't keep bothering you anymore and I promise I won't do it again."



Anthony walked out of the house before I could say anything more. I could feel everyone's eyes on me and was immediately filled with embarrassment. I squirmed uncomfortably and clenched and unclenched my fists to keep myself from crying. My eyes looked right and left while my brain started doing somersaults around different things.

My mind flashed from William to Anthony and finally came to a rest at Stevie. Oh, Stevie. How could he do this to me? My blood boiled once again and I could feel my anger rushing back.

"Ugh!" I started storming past the others and towards my room. "Why the hell is my life so complicated?!"

I had difficulty turning the knob since I was so upset, but when I finally got it, I hurried inside and slammed the door hard.

'Why is my life so complicated?' I asked myself. 'Why, huh? What did I ever do to deserve for this stuff to happen to me? What have I done that was so horrible to get this-this hell of a life?'

-♥- -♥- -♥-

I stayed up in my room for what felt like all eternity, but was actually almost two days. Aliyah and Aelita tried their best to get me down from there, but I refused them time and time again. After what I did with Anthony, nothing felt right anymore. All that anger and frustration I had unleashed from the depths of my heart and at Anthony had felt so good, but it only lasted for a few seconds. Afterwards, the only thing I felt was like a villain.

I tried calling Andrew multiple times, but due to caller ID it didn't work out very well. I even tried using Andrew's brand new cell, but he still wouldn't pick up. I was started to get a little worried for some reason. Every time I thought about that stupid moment, my stomach churned.

But, as long as Anthony stayed away and I was still dealing with some very big monsters in my head, nothing was going to go back to normal.

-♥- -♥- -♥-

It was in the afternoon when I was dying of thirst that I finally just had to go downstairs and get a glass of water that I finally got a chance to meet up with Anthony. I was going past the living room where everyone was huddled over watching a scary movie. Andrew had noticed me and just had to make a snarky comment about how the ghost had somehow escaped from the TV and was now in the house to which I obviously had to reply back to.

I wasn't looking as I was walking and literally walked right into Anthony as he was walking out of the kitchen right as I was walking in. I flinched back when our bodies made contact and was right about to yell at when I saw that it was him.

"Anthony!" I exclaimed. "Hi!"

His face fell instantly and he backed up, his hands up in surrender.

"Sorry, I only came back to give Anthony back some notes I borrowed; I'll be going now." he said quietly.

"What? No, don't go, please! I'm so sorry, I swear, I didn't mean any of that! I just...I-I-" I struggled to get my voice back in working order so I could apologize to Anthony the right way. "I wasn't in the greatest mood and seeing to actually like someone like me in the first place, it just...I-I don't know makes me feel...different about myself. Like-like I might actually have a chance, a shot to go on with my life, but-but I-I hate that feeling, it just...!" God, this was so hard. And to make things worse, Anthony wasn't even saying anything or reacting in any way that showed me that it was alright, I could shut up now, that was enough, he forgave me. "You-you have every right to totally hate me for everything, but just...don't-don't blame yourself. Really, not when it's not your fault at all!"

Anthony still didn't say anything and just stared down at his feet.

"Say something!" I shouted out.

I could feel myself growing mad again. One more minute of this horrible penetrating silence and I was going to end up exploding out on him once again and just walking out of there. But, then Anthony sighed softly and stepped forward, his eyes shining once again.

"Could anyone possibly ever stay mad at you?" he said.

"So, you forgive me?" I asked hopefully.

"Of course!"

Anthony walked closer and I understood what he wanted. I smiled and leaned in for a hug.

"So, does this mean you won't get mad at me for continuing to hit on you?" he mumbled against my shoulder.

I chucked. "No. But, seriously get a girlfriend - one that will get mad when you hit on me."

"Yeah, yeah, when I find a girl that's actually suits me, I will." he joked.

"Fine," I giggled. "But, it better be soon."

I let go of Anthony and found him smiling brightly at me. Now, there was there was the Anthony I knew and sometimes loathed, but would no longer will - ever again!

"Aw, is everyone all friends again?" I heard a voice say then.

I looked up towards the living room and saw Andrew standing by the doorway along with Odd - man, why are those two always together like that?

"Yeah, everything is cool again." Anthony answered him, placing his arm loosely around me, like always.

My eyes involuntarily looked towards Odd then, his eyes were like practically glued to me. I frowned and it was almost as if he had seen or sensed it, because his eyes left from me then.

I felt Anthony give my shoulder a small squeeze and I turned my head towards him, smiling faintly.

'Well, one problem solved,' I thought morosely to myself. 'Another one coming up just ahead.'
