Dear Agony

I can't even anymore. Seeing them in the hallways, in our classes, at lunch, on Facebook and Instagram, and sometimes through my window when I'm lying around the house. It hurts like hell. I'm friends with them both but lately, it hurts more than usual. The moment I think I'm getting over them, I think of something or I see something, or some idiot says something, and it comes back full force.

(The title comes from the song Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin.)

4. "Thanks"

At 10:50, we're ready and on our way. I'm in a tight, black Flyleaf band tee, black skinny jeans, and Addy is wearing a deep blue V-neck tank top with a leather vest over it, which she pairs with dark blue skinny jeans.. We both opted for Converse since we're gonna be standing for hours. I grab my leather jacket and throw her her car keys. We walk to her black and red 1969 Camaro Z28 and get in. She starts the car and then we're off. 

Its 11:13 when we pull into the courtyard and get out. There's a huge crowd surrounding a dance pit (A/N its like the pit from Pitch Perfect where the Riff Off was held) and there are two girls in the pit, both stretching and glaring at each other murderously.

After about three minutes of them glaring each other down, a guy in a tux steps out with a megaphone. "In this corner!" He gestures to the blonde on the right side of the pit wearing red baller shorts, a bright yellow t-shirt, and hot pink high top Converse, "We have our challenger! Brooke "Break It Down" Matthews." Five to ten people clap and the rest of us are dead silent. "And in this corner!" He gestures to a girl wearing dark blue short shorts, a tight, blue tank top and low top dark blue Converse, "Our champ, the best in the city, you know her, you love her, KickAss KittyKat!!" The crowd, with the exception of me and Addy and a few others, goes wild. Everybody's clapping like mad and whooping as if their lives depended on it. Up until now, I couldn't see the girl's face but now the spotlight was shining on her and she was waving and smiling at the crowd chanting her name, "KittyKat! KittyKat! KittyKat!" When I saw her face, my mouth dropped and I'm sure Addy's did too. It was Kaci. She was the champ. The best in the city. I honestly didn't think I could be anymore in love with her but damn! She looked so perfect in her dance outfit. She looked at me and smiled so wide I almost passed out, but I managed to smile back and wave. She smirked and grabbed the megaphone from the announcer, "Hey everybody! How're you guy doin tonight?" The crowd started screaming again and she waited till the crowd calmed down before continuing, "I'd just like to send a shout-out to one of my best friends, Alex!" She pointed at me and all heads turned towards me. I hid behind Addy as she shot everyone of them an ice cold glare. Kaci handed the dude back his megaphone and smirked at my obvious blush. The announcer did his job and said, "Crowd, are you ready??" The whole crowd, including Addy and I, went wild. "Dancers, are you ready??" Brooke nodded but Kaci screamed, "Hell yeah!"

(A/N I don't feel like writing out the dance scene so skip ahead like 4 hours)
-----------------------------------

I checked the time on my phone and was glad my parents were always away on business, it was almost 3am. Kaci was just finishing up and now all that was left was the vote. The announcer said, "Scream for whoever you want to win!" He held up Brooke's hand and about 150 people screamed. She smiled wearily and stepped back. He held up Kaci's hand and the crowd went wild. The announcer smiled and nodded, "The fans have spoken! Your winner, the still undefeated champ, KickAss KittyKat!" The crowd started chanting Kaci's name again but Addy and I were already pushing back through the crowd to her car.

After we got outside, we bought sodas and shared a pickle. I threw the trash away and was walking back to Addy when a hand grabbed my wrist. I swung around, ready to defend myself if necessary but relaxed when I saw that it was only Kaci. She was wearing a robe that matched her outfit and I could see the sweat shining on her forehead and all on her arms. I said, "Congrats, Kace. I didn't know you could dance like that." I turn and try to walk away but she grabs my wrist again and holds me there, "Thanks, that means a lot coming from you, Aly." I can feel my wrist scorching and I look down to see she's still holding it in her hand tightly. She lets my wrist go and I practically fly into Addy's arms on the hood of her car. She holds me close, kisses my forehead and whispers good things in my ear like, "It's going to be okay, Al. I promise." She puts me into the passenger's seat and gets in the driver's seat before taking off to my house. We shower, change clothes and watch movies until around 4:45am. We went and got in my bed and, as usual, I was the little spoon. "Go to sleep, Al. It'll be better in the morning." I fall asleep and dream of brown eyes and blue tank tops. 

 

All the while her words whispered in the back of my mind; "Thanks, that means a lot coming from you, Aly."
