I walked into the house threw my keys in my bag and threw my bag down in anger. I slide my body down the wall and put my head in my hands.

'You alright love?' I heard a voice which I immediately recognized as Jane's, she gently pulled my hands away from my head and I nodded. 'No you're not, want to come talk about it?' She asked, as I nodded. I forced myself up off the marble floor and followed her into the living room, as we both sat on sofa. 'Boys?' She questioned.

'Yeah' I nodded.

'They're all idiots, don't worry about it. Come give me a cuddle' She requested, as I moved my body up and cuddled into her.

'I wish you were my mum' I informed her.

'Me too darling, me too' She told me, kissing me on the top of my head.

'I'm going to bed now anyway' I stated.

'Alright then love, if I don't see you in the morning I'll see you when I get home from work, are you going down to the pool tomorrow?' Jane asked me.

'Not tomorrow' I smiled, I hadn't been there today either, but it was the least of my concerns right now.

'Okay then, goodnight' Jane smiled back at me before I walked up stairs to bed. As I put my phone on charge, it made a noise, and lit up. Informing me I had a message. I opened it, it was from Tom.

From: Tom x

Sam told me what you said to her.. I'm sorry xxx

I decided to ignore it, and reply in the morning or whenever I felt up to it. I took all my make up off, and put some pyjama shorts and a white cami top, not really caring at the fact my hot red bra was showing right through it and climbed into bed, and I soon fell off into the land of dreams, hoping it would be a better place than where I was now.

I woke up the following morning at half 11, standard. I had a good sleep surprisingly. I reached for my phone and I had a few messages off Tom.

From: Tom x - (received at 2:18am)

Are you awake? xx

From: Tom x - (received at 2:32am)

I'll take that as a no..

From: Tom x - (received at 8:26am)

Look, I really need to speak to you.. I've been thinking about you all night :/ xxx

From: Tom x - (received at 9:48am)

Are you ignoring me? Please don't ignore me, I know I'm the last person you'd want to see and speak to right now, but I really need to speak to you! xxx

From: Tom x - (received at 10:17am)

I don't know if you're still asleep, but text me when you wake up if you are, yeah? xxx

I didn't really know what to reply, but I thought that I owed him a reply at the least.

To: Tom x

Only just got up, but you can come round to mine now if you like, I don't look very presentable at the moment and look a mess, but that doesn't matter xxx

It was as if he was waiting for a reply, as he had text back within a minute.

From: Tom x

I'll be over now xxx

To: Tom x

The door is open, come up the stairs and I'm in the first room on the left xxx

I lay in bed for ten minutes, with my head faced down in the cushions, before I felt the front door open and footsteps coming up the stairs, I guess it was now or never.
