28. Chapter 28. Last Day Of High School

    The day had finally come, the day that I have been waiting for ever since my first day of school, my graduation. All my hard work was finally going to be paid off, I was getting my diploma and hopefully I was going to be getting into a good college. I havn't applied to any college actually, I'm not sure why, but I guess it was because of everything that was happening. For a while I was living with my abusive father, for another while I was living with my best friend, and then I ended up living with my ex boyfriend, I was basically homeless. But now, things started to change, and that's a good thing. I finally have my old Dad back, the one who doesn't hit me, but loves me. The only thing missing in this new life are two things, the first thing is having a plan after today, and the second thing is Evangeline. Her most of all, I miss her so much, and I need her way more than I could explain. It's like my brain wants to be happy with what I have, with what I've earned, but my heart can't get over her. The way her voice sounded in my ears, it was just the sweetest thing I could ever listen to, probably better than One Direction's own voice. And the way her skin feels on mine, there is no feeling like it, it's never felt like that with anyone in the world, not even Ian. And those lips, they were the perfect color of light pink, they were so nicely curved, and the feel of them was better than expected. She was perfection, I loved her, and right now I missed her more than anything.


    There I stood in my old room, in my old black dress, my black boots, and my black graduating cap and gown. My black hair was curled, and my eyes were popping out with my make up. White eyeliner really did make your eyes pop out more, it really did make them look bigger. My heart started to race, one of my dreams was always to graduate from high school, but with out Evangeline, it's incomplete. I took in a deep breath, this seems so unreal, and that's not really good. A knock came on my door, that was probably my Dad. "Come in," I said, I faced the door so the first thing he saw would be me, I was really happy that he was part of my life again, and I was happy he was going to see his only daughter graduate. He opened the door, and like expected the first thing he saw was me, he smiled and I forced a smile back.


"Wow, you look just like your Mom, beautiful," said my Dad, I smiled at him for that. That's when I noticed he was holding something,


"What's that?" I asked him changing the subject, it looked like an envelope. My heart started to race faster, was that from Evangeline? If it is, maybe this day won't be as bad, maybe, just maybe this day could be perfect. My Dad looked down at the envelope her was holding, he walked to me and handed it to me, and I quickly took it. I looked at it, but my heart dropped when I saw it wasn't from Evangeline. Full Sail?


"Dad, what's Full Sail?" I asked him, he gave me a small sweet smile.


"Full Sail is a college, in Florida," he said, I looked at him confused,


"I didn't apply for any college," I said, he shrugged.


"I sort of did for you, I knew that you had a great voice, and I thought that maybe you might want to do something with music in your life. So I sent them a video of you and Evangeline singing, and that came in the mail right now," he said smiling, I looked at the envelope again.


"Thank you, Dad," I said to him, he smiled and nodded.


"Hurry up, we don't want to be late," he said, I nodded and smiled.


    My Dad walked out of my room, I heard his foot steps go back down stairs, he really has changed for the best. I sat down on my bed, this seems comfortable. I looked down at the envelope, I wanted to open it, to see if I got in the school or not, but something told me not to open it yet. So I didn't, I threw the letter behind me on my bed, if Evangeline was here she would be begging me to open it. A smile appeared on my lips as memories of her came back in my mind, it's just amazing how much we've been through this year. When she first showed me who One Direction was, when we were at the car wash, when we were inside the bathroom at the coffee shop, those were the first moments when I realized something was changing in me. The smile was still on my lips, but I stood up and shook my head, it's time to graduate. Even though Evangeline can't be part of this moment, I knew that my Dad, Ian, and Jace would be, at least I have people by my side. The only two people missing were my Mom and Evangeline, but I knew Mom would be watching, and I knew that even though it's going to hurt, I had to get over Evangeline. She was gone, and for all I know is that I will never see her again, and that hurt. I tried calling, texting, e-mailing, other things like that, but like always I had no response. I had to just suck it up and get over it, all of it, no matter how much it hurt.


    Dad drove us to the familiar high school, this graduation was taking place at the football field. They set up hundreds of chairs on the field, as the graduates were going to be taking a seat on the bleachers. I took a deep breath as I got out of the car, this was actually happening, I was actually going to be graduating from high school. "Dad, I'm going to get in my seat," I said to him as I noticed mostly everyone was already ready for this to start. He smiled and nodded, he kissed my forehead and he made his way to an empty chair. I went over the bleachers and went over where all the P's sat at, since my last name was Placencia, I needed to sit with the P's. Once I found my name on the bleachers, I smiled and I made my way over to the empty seat, I got stuck sitting in between two girls, great.


    The graduation started, and that little cheesy music started to play, this was going to be a long day, but then again totally worth it. The names went by fast, it went in alphbetical order, and right now we were at the F's. If Evangeline was here, her name would of been called, and I would of screamed my lungs out. "Josh Fray," said the man announcing the names, Josh took his diploma.
"Evangeline Fritas," said the guy, did I hear right? I guess I did, a girl with curly black hair went up there and took her diploma, she slightly turned around and my heart dropped, that was Evangeline. My eyes were glued to her, and I knew she knew I was starting, since she just got off the little stage that was set up, and she walked back over to her seat. Evangeline was here, she was here, this was perfect. I want all of this to be over already, that way I can go up to her and talk to her, maybe we can finally be together, I would love that.


    For the rest of the names that were being called I was just staring where Evangeline was, but I didn't see much of her. All I was able to see was a piece of black hair at the top of her head, that was it, that was all. All my ears heard were the familiar names, like Ariel Fountains, Jace Makana, Mina Ortiz, and then the P's were next. I was ready to be called on, but either way I wasn't able to keep my eyes off of Evangeline. "Ariana Placencia," said the man, my ears shot up and I started to walk. I shook hands with the random people there, and I finally received my diploma, it felt good having it. I walked back to my seat, and on my way to my seat I took a peek at Evangeline, she was looking at me too. She looked away when she noticed that she was staring, that's cute. The last familiar name they called was Ian Sanchez, if it weren't for  him, I would of been living in my car for that long time.


    Finally the whole thing was over, the speeches, and all that. I was officially out of high school, and it felt good. Once everyone started to get out of their seats, it was harder to find Evangeline, since a lot of the girls had black hair, they just seemed to blend in. But no, Evangeline is different, I know that if I just saw at least a glimpse of her hair, I would know it was her. But I had no luck, I'm pretty sure by now my Dad was looking for me, but he was having no luck like me. Someone tapped me on my shoulder, but it wasn't Evangeline, I would of known if it was Evangeline. I turned around and saw that it was Ian and Jace, they both had a small smile on their lips. "May I help you?" I asked them, Ian shrugged,


"Your looking for Evangeline arn't you?" asked Ian, was that obvious?


"Yeah," was all I said, Jace looked down to his feet.


"She left, with her Mom and Dad, sorry you didn't get a chance to talk to her," said Jace, I looked at him confused,


"You couldn't tell her I wanted to talk to her?" I asked him, he shook his head.


"She was to far, I would of gone after her, but some people got me caught up and yeah, sorry," said Jace, I nodded.


"Your Dad's looking for you," said Ian changing the subject, I looked at him and smiled.


    I walked away from the boys, now I was looking for my Dad, all I wanted to do was go home and cry. But knowing how my Dad is now, I have a feeling he has something planned for us, something to celebrate this day. "There you are!" I heard my Dad's voice, I turned around and he was looking at me, he smiled and I smiled.


"Here I am," I said to him, he smiled,


"Come on, I have a surprised for you," said my Dad, I smiled and nodded. Told you he would have something planned.


    My Dad just drove, he didn't tell me where we were going, but I don't care, I want to get this day over with. My Dad parked the car, and I looked up at the building in front of me, well it was more like a shop. But either way, I knew this place, I havn't been to this place since Mom died. "Dad, what are we doing here?" I asked him, he let out a laugh. His eyes were a bit sad, but he was more happy, as for me, I felt like I wanted to cry even more now. My Dad got out of the car with out answering my question, so I just did the same.


"Don't you remember?" he asked me, I nodded.


"Yeah, this is the ice cream shop Mom you and I always came too. I would get vanilla, you would get chocolate, and Mom would always get a gross flavor and we would tease her," I said remembering the memory, it was such a nice memory. Dad took my hand and we both entered the place, it was a bit empty, that's how this place has always been though, even though the ice cream is delicious.


    Dad and I ordered, I got vanilla and he got chocolate, all we need is Mom's gross ice cream and were complete. Dad and I took a seat in one of the empty tables that was around in the middle of the shop, he sat across from me. "Ariana, don't you know why I brought you here today?" he asked me, I looked at him and shook my head, I really didn't.


"When you were younger, it was like our first time here with Mom, and you said that you love this place! That when ever something good happens your going to come here to celebrate. I know you said that when you were little, but I thought it would be nice coming here anyways," said Dad, I smiled at him, it was nice coming back here, but it only made me realize that I miss Mom even more.


"Dad? Can I ask you something?" I asked him, I was going to ask, the one question that has been killing me for as long as I can remember.


"Yeah, anything," he said, I took a deep breath and I knew I was ready.


"Why did you hit me? Why didn't you act like yourself anymore? Mom would of hated seeing you like that," I said, Dad looked down to his ice cream.


"I don't know, I guess it was my way of dealing with things. Your Mom, she was my everything, and when she left, it was like my whole world came crashing down, I didn't know what to do," he said, he sounded in pain, he really did love Mom.


"It's okay Dad, that's in the past, let's just focus on right now and the future," I said to him with a smile, he smiled as well,


"Your just like your Mom," he said with a smile.


    We drove back home, and when I entered the house I ran up to my room, I was still upset about Evangeline. I got inside my room and something caught my eyes on the bed, the letter from that college. I can't go to another college, I remember Evangeline said she was going to be going to some college in New York, not Florida. But either way I knew I had to open this letter, I just don't want to feel like I stopped looking for her, when I havn't. I sat down on my bed and got the letter, I opened it and read what was inside of it, my heart dropped. I was accepted, not just that, I had a full scholorship to it as well. My lips started to twitch into a smile, this is amazing. Evangeline came to mind though, I could either go to Florida, or go to New York with no college in mind. Either go to Florida for something new, or go to New York and most likely fail, but Evangeline would be there. As if right now, I don't know what I'm going to do.
