So Over It [completed, undergoing editing]

Christina: I can’t wait to come back to my hometown, Austin, Texas, to see my boyfriend, Matt.

Matt: I feel so guilty. She doesn’t know that I have a new girlfriend now… and I didn’t even tell her.

Christina: I’m heartbroken. I can’t believe he would do this to me. He cheated on me!

Matt: I miss her, more than anything.

Christina: I’m slowly healing. Maybe things will get better.

Matt: I’m just so confused.

Christina: I’m tired of wallowing around in misery and tears. I’m going to get revenge on this sleazy cheater, if it’s the last thing I do. I’ve got a hot guitar player, an amazing voice, a school dance to perform at, and the best girl-power-breakup song I’ve ever heard. Time to show him girls can be tough, too.

[A/N: WROTE THIS A LONG TIME AGO... SORRY IF IT'S BAD. IT'S UNDERGOING LOTS OF EDITING, BUT YOU CAN STILL READ IT. IT'S ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON A WEBSITE CALLED MISS LITERATI UNDER MY PEN NAME, KRISTY THOMAS. PLANNING TO SELF PUBLISH THIS SOON.]

12. Matt's POV

I was at the mall.

Normally, I wouldn't be caught there. You can put me through fire and slam my tongue in a car door or staple my head to the floor, and I still won't go. That's how much I hate it.

But, Kaitlyn dragged me there, so what was I gonna do? Say no? 

Anyway, there was this midsummer dance thing coming up, and Kaitlyn wanted to buy and dress and me to get a tux.

I said, "I don't dance."

"Please, Matty-boo," Kaitlyn pleaded. "This is going to be sooo romantic, this dance. I can feel it. I just need to get the right dress, and I need your opinion on it."

"Kaitlyn...," I started.

Kaitlyn put a hand to my mouth and traced her fingers on my lips again, the way she did. I loved that. But after a while, it lost its meaning.

"Don't speak," she murmured in my ear. "We're going to the mall, and we're going to the dance. And that's final."

She kissed me. Oh. Oh wow. THAT hadn't lost its meaning. I kissed back.

"So, we're going?" she asked.

"Of course," I stammered. Wow. This girl could kiss good. I mean, we'd been dating for a while, and there was definitely kissing involved, of course, but it never really sunk in. She was excellent.

"Great," she said, grabbing my car keys. "Let's go. I'll drive."

Normally, I won't let anyone drive my 2012 red Audi that I got for my sixteenth birthday, but Kaitlyn was a good driver. She was good at everything.

Christina came into my mind just then, and I winced. We hopped in my car and headed for the mall.

We cranked up the speakers, and Katy Perry's voice blasted throughout the streets. I was sick of Katy Perry, but Kaitlyn was obsessed.

This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you're not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me, no...

AT THE MALL-
"What about this dress?" asked Kaitlyn, holding up a short, sparkly pink dress with a huge purple sash and bow. "With these heels? Or what about this black one?" she held up a slim black one with a plunging neckline.

"The black one," I said, bored out of my mind.

"You would pick that one, you little nasty!" Kaitlyn teased, swatting me flirtatiously. "I'm going to try it on."

I smiled. I couldn't wait to see that...

Then my heart stopped entirely. Well, not really, otherwise I'd be dead. But you know what I mean.

Christina walked through the door. She looked better than I'd ever seen her. Her hair was down and straightened, and she was wearing a bright purple tee-shirt and the tightest jeans I had ever seen, plus black cowboy boots. She was with her friends, smiling and laughing. It was like what I'd done to her never even happened. She was sparkling and beautiful.

And then I saw someone else in the circle.

A guy. 

He was laughing and talking to her, smiling and nodding along to what she was saying. Then she laughed and swatted his arm.

Okay then.

I guess I was staring for too long, because Kaitlyn came back, dress in all.

"Yeah, it's a little tight around the chest, but that's good, right?" she was asking me.

"Matt? Matt?" 

I kept staring. She followed my gaze.

"You're looking at her, aren't you?" she said softly.

I tore my eyes away from Christina. But Kaitlyn had already ran away, crying.
