26. Familiar Faces

I was distracted by his eyes, his hair, the shape of his face. He looked so much like Justin.

 

Lexi: Oh… Uh… Hi Jason. I gotta get home, nice meeting you.

 

I ran off and looked back a few times to see Jason with a depressed look on his face and his eyes glued to the sidewalk. I felt bad, but he was a complete stranger to me so I kept on walking until I got to my house. I opened the door, ran upstairs and threw on a baggy sweatshirt and leggings. I went down stairs and took my phone out of the zip lock bag. My heart dropped. “1 new message from ‘my bieber<3’” I nervously unlocked my phone.

 

From: my bieber<3  Sent @ 11:02 p.m.

I don’t think I can do it without you anymore, Lex…

 

I ignored the text like it didn’t even phase me. What did I tell myself again? “Get over him Lexi, you don’t love him.” I slipped my phone in my pocket and walked out the door to go get a coffee from the gas station. I looked down at my phone again and pulled up twitter and started to look down my timeline.

“Why is Justin so depressed? It makes me so upset.”

“I’m actually so worried about Justin. He’s not the same.”

 

I scrolled and scrolled through the tweets and each one stabbed me in the heart more and more. My stomach dropped as I peeked from the corner of my eye. Jason was still in the same spot. Still looking depressed as ever, but sitting on the curb of the street. I locked my phone and slipped it in my pocket and walked towards the scruffy looking boy.

 

Lexi: Still here?

 

Jason turned back and looked deeply into my eyes.

 

Jason: You came back?

Lexi: Well actually… I was just going to get a coffee. Wanna come along?

 

He hesitated and then stood up and walked beside me. I could tell there was something wrong with him, even though I had no idea who he was. We walked and I could tell he kept staring at me. I caught him and he stuffed his hands in his pockets and stopped walking.

 

Jason: You’re…. You’re very beautiful.

 

I gave him a confused look and stopped walking as well.

 

Lexi: Well… Thank you so much. Hey, is everything okay, or?

Jason: Nope.

 

He stared at the ground and covered his face with his hands, then letting out a deep sigh.

 

Jason: I guess I just don’t have anyone to talk to… Everyone knows me as the badass who goes around trying to hurt people… I’m really not like that. It’s- It’s my dad that makes me seem like this. I hate him. I wish I wasn’t like this.. I don’t want to be like this, yanno?

Lexi: Oh… Well I’m sorry. I’m actually going through a breakup right now and it seems like my friends hate me, if that makes it any better. I know it’s not as bad as what you’re going through, but maybe we can get through it together?

 

I gave him a friendly smile and he nodded his head and we entered into the gas station. I pressed the button on the coffee machine and put the lid on the styrofoam cup.

 

Lexi: Want anything?

Jason: No… I’m good.

 

We paid and walked out the door. I felt a little uncomfortable… But what did I care anymore? I don’t think life could’ve gotten any worse. We made our way to the side walk and I noticed him sticking a cigarette in his mouth, but not lighting it.

 

Lexi: You smoke?

Jason: Nah…

Lexi: Oh…

 

We walked a couple seconds of just pure awkwardness. It was hard to even see his face considering it was dark outside, he had a dark hood over his head, and the fact he never liked to make eye contact. All I could think about was the first time I did see his eyes… How much they reminded me of Justin’s. But I hadn’t seen them again. I grabbed him by his shoulder and tried to turn him around, but he still kept his eyes glued to the floor.

 

Lexi: Oh… I’m sorry. You just remind me a lot like someone I know……

 

He finally looked up at me but it was too dark again for me to see anything but the outline of his eyes.

 

Jason: And… Who’s that?

Lexi: Long story…

 

He softly took my arm and looked into my eyes. Again, it was too dark to see anything, but the way he touched me just made me feel safe.

 

Jason: Trust me… I have all night.

 

We took a separate way so we could walk longer. My eyes started to fill up with tears as I began to talk for several minutes about Justin and everything that was going on.

 

Lexi: Well my friends are having a baby… At 18. I just broke up with my boyfriend… I-I still love him. I love him more than anything. I keep telling myself I don’t but I do. And I have no one anymore. No one.

 

Tears began to suddenly stream down my cheeks and I started choking on my words. Jason looked at me with an upset face and rubbed my back.

 

Lexi: He was my best friend ever since kindergarten… He knew everything about me. He was the one guy I ever felt completely comfortable around. The one guy I truly ever loved… I hate my life now. Everything about it…

 

At this point we were walking into my house… I wasn’t really thinking considering my huge rant I was going on  and how upset I was about everything so I just invited him in.

 

Lexi: I thought I was gonna spend the rest of my life with him. I love him so much. I just want to be happy again…- Do you have anywhere to stay tonight? Because you can sleep on my couch. It’s just me here tonight.

Jason: I don’t have anywhere to stay. Thank you but uhh Lexi….

 

I fell onto the couch and sobbed into the pillow.

 

Lexi: I want to be in his arms again. I want him back. Jason what do I d-do?

 

Jason walked over to the couch and put his arm around me and started to caress my back. He was now wearing sunglasses for some odd reason.

 

Jason: I know how you feel, I’ve been through this before. I’m so sorry. I’m sure he still loves you.

 

I quit the crying and stood up, walking over to the linen closet.  

 

Lexi: Pretty sure that’s a definite no… But thanks for trying to make me feel better.

 

I walked back over to the couch and plopped a pillow and blanket down on the arm rest.

 

Lexi: I gotta go take a shower. Here’s a blanket and pillow for tonight. Look- I’m sorry about my rant. I just- I just really needed to get that off my chest. Feel free to help yourself in the kitchen. I’ll be down in a few… Wanna pick out a movie for when I get back?

 

Jason gave me a crooked half-smile and I made my way up the stairs. I took one step down and peeked my head over the railing.

 

Lexi: Oh… And I know you wouldn’t, but please don’t tell anyone anything I just said… It’s kinda personal.

 

He smiled at me again and turned on the TV.

 

Jason: I promise.
