2. Troubles

At the beginning of elementary school , meaning I was in kindergarten , I was what you'd call "the awkward kid." At school I'd go and sit on the play ground by myself and during snack I'd sit at a table in the corner of the room and eat my crackers in complete silence. I didn't know any different , and I honestly didn't care if I had friends or not. Life was too hard at that point to realize I could actually meet new people that would treat me with respect , considering what happened with my father. One day during recess I saw a little boy walk up to me. I turned around and sat on the bench trying to get him to ignore me , but that didn't work. The small blonde kid sat right by me , put his hand on my leg and smiled at me. I pushed him off and ran away. The rest of the day he followed me and followed me and it seemed like he wouldn't let me out of his sight. I finally agreed to talk to him and asked him what he wanted. I found out all he wanted was someone to talk to , and ever since we were best friends.

 

What people don't realize , is what happened years later.

All through junior high he was my "best friend" , the only one I could have a normal conversation with , without having a nervous break down. And the best part was , he knew exactly how to treat me , he knew that I needed space and he knew what certain things made me comfortable and what not. Not even Joslyn and Ashley treat me the way he did.

Towards the end of eighth grade was when things started to get bad... Justin got a girlfriend. Of course I didn't care if he had a girlfriend or not , if it made him happy , I was happy , but it was the girl that was the problem , not him. "Brooklyn and Justin" was all I heard about for weeks. "Prettiest most popular girl in school finally has a boyfriend". From the day they started dating , Justin started to change. He turned from the sweet , low-key guy people never really talked about to the biggest jerk in town. It hurt me , it's hard to see your best friend change in the blink of an eye , especially when he decides not to talk to you anymore.

 

 For months , I tried to text him , call him , and even get his attention in the halls but the only response I'd ever get was him rolling his eyes or walking away. Even when Pattie would come over for a drink with my mom... And I spent the whole night by myself , he'd be with Brooklyn. After awhile I stared to give up until one day I saw him at Tim Hortons getting a coffee. I walked up to his table and sat down. There was a long , awkward silence between us.

Justin: What do you want? Couldn't you ever just leave me alone?

I started to tear up. We were only young , but I still cared about him more than anything.

Lexi: W-what do you mean?

Justin: Every damn way I turn , you're always trying to get my attention , just leave.

 

I had never heard him raise his voice like that before so I immediately stood up and broke into tears.

As I was walking away I looked down and whispered to him.

 

Lexi: So much for best friends forever.

Justin: I'm getting real tired of your crap , never talk to me again.

Lexi: Okay Justin , I'll never talk to you again , I promise.

Justin: And I'll never talk to you either , promise.

I ran out of Tim's pulling my hood over my head. All I remember is that I officially lost my one and only best friend , you could say it was the worst summer of my life.   Going into high school I tried to not have any worries. I wasn't anyone "big" in school so I just kept to myself. Every day I'd see Justin and remember all the fun times we had. Two full years of just unfriendly eye contact , until he got signed to a record label and moved to Atlanta without even saying goodbye.
