7. CHAPTER 6 : Sharon's P.O.V

A/N This is a very special and important part of the story. It will tell you about the main reason behind all this mess. Read it carefully and I hope you enjoy it. Alex ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I walked back home, after Alex and Justin had left. I dumped my bag down and flopped down on the sofa. What was wrong with Alex? Did she not realize how lucky she was to have a boy like Justin in her life? What had really happened a few years ago, that had lead to such a mess? I’m still curious to know what happened to those three friends. How did they get separated? Was there a fight, or something worse happened? How could two people who were meant to be together, not be together? It didn't make much sense. I sighed as I realized, I should get on with my homework because I had a few chores to do later on. At the end of the day I would definitely like some time to myself. I opened my school bag and pulled out my math books and out one of the books, fell a piece of paper, properly folded. Curiosity took the better part of me as I sat on the sofa and began reading. I know I have hidden a major part of my life from you, even though you are my best friend. The reasons I’m going to tell you might sound really stupid and you might think about how foolish we were, but at that time, these little things mattered a lot. Once someone told me that sometimes some things don't have reasons, they just happen for your own good. Maybe this was decided before we even knew it, maybe our love will be back and fights will erupt for silly reasons. But being ignorant about these reasons will give impetus to the fight. Soon it will be so big that we won’t even remember where the fight started.. It was during the summer holidays. We were around 10 or 12 years old, I’m not sure. All I remember is that Justin and I were going to the park. I will never forget that day ever. He was holding his guitar on the left side of his body when all of a sudden he held my hand. I was way too nervous to say anything. He took me to the other side of the park and sat under a tree. He took out a folded piece of paper that was from his back pocket. I asked him what it was and I remember he said he’d written a song. He opened the piece of paper, held his guitar and started playing it and sang along. "It’s been a long time, I wanted to tell you, How I feel about you, And now that you are with me, Lets be more than just friends, You and me will be together forever And you you you you and me, Like the stars and the moon are meant to be, It's a perfect time, For the stars to meet, Lets just make the start, And I promise we will never be apart, You will be mine and forever be, Its written in the book of love, That we just have to be together, And you you you you and me, Like the stars and the moon are meant to be, It's a perfect time, For the stars to meet, If I smile I smile for you, If my heart beats It beats for you, If I breathe, I breathe for you, Then suddenly he stopped singing, he looked into my eyes and he got closer. I could tell, he was going to kiss me. He leaned in and so did I. “Justin!” I heard someone say, and instead of crashing my lips into Justin’s, I kissed thin air. That high-pitched voice had to have belonged to Andrea. And I was right. I saw her stand here as she towered over both of us. She said she needed to have a word with Justin alone. So Justin got up and followed her. Till today I don’t know what she told him, but I know that it was the reason we ever drifted apart. Justin and me were best friends. We use to hangout with each other all the time, share secrets, and do all the normal stuff best friends did. Whenever I needed something he was always there for me. We were perfect together. But after that little talk that Andrea had had with him, he had started ignoring me. I felt so bad, so angry. After not talking to him for weeks, I decided it was time we cleared things out. I climbed up the rope to the tree house. I remember, it was a pretty little thing, that tree house. Justin and me had built it 2 years ago. His father had helped us. When I couldn’t find Justin anywhere I was positive to find him up there. When I reached the top, tears threatened to spill from my eyes as I saw Andrea and Justin sit in our tree house. It was ours, how could he get her up here? I decided it was best if I went back but stopped when I realized that the topic of discussion was me. I remember Justin saying that he refused to believe that I would do such a horrid thing and I remember Andrea telling him that though it was hurtful, but it was the truth. I sighed as tears slipped down my cheeks and I walked back home. All I could think of was what had I done, that had offended Justin? I was his best friend. I loved him. I would never do anything nasty to him. What had Andrea told him? Andrea was a girl I particularly disliked. The next day, I walked into school and decided that I would confront Justin. I saw him taking books out of this locker. Both of us avoided eye contact and exchanged very blunt greetings. I was just about to ask him, when both of us were very rudely interrupted by Andrea. We didn’t get a chance to talk and I had to keep my eyes open for the next opportunity to talk to him. Sophia was my best girl friend back then. Being my best friend, she was the gossip queen of school and happened to know everything about everyone’s life. She asked me how I was holding up and I assumed that the news of Justin’s and my fight was all over school. Sophia took me in the corner and I remember that she told me that I deserved to know the truth. I guess having the gossip queen as your best friend had its advantages. Some seniors who had got hold of a very embarrassing video of him were bullying Justin. Andrea and I recorded video and I remember that day we swore that this video was not meant for anyone else to watch. But somehow it had leaked. When Justin questioned Andrea, she blamed it on me. When Justin refused to believe her, she told Justin that I was going to prom with Jason, who was a senior. I continued backing up her false story by saying that Jason and I were going out and I didn't care about Justin. She lied about me having said that, Justin was good for nothing, was a dork and his face was like a beaver’s. After hearing this story, I felt disgusted. I was totally innocent and was being framed by Andrea. I always knew she was the kind of girl who loved to play mind games. Sophia knew that it was not true and she suggested that I should call Justin and "clear the air." This was it. I decided to face Justin and tell him the truth. I went back home. I was about to go in my room when my dad called me downstairs. He told me that we are going to London because his job was being transferred there. It took time for me to believe that. I didn’t want to leave my school my friends, my house, my country and go into a strange world and live there. I was shocked and I was crying. He then told me to pack my bag as we were leaving tomorrow. I didn’t tell anybody. I barely had friends and those whom I trusted, had already broken that trust. But I still wanted to clear out things. It was time to met Justin. This time I was determined to tell him everything. I went to the tree house. As I was climbing the ladder of the tree house I heard familiar voices. I was shocked to see Andrea there. It was Justin and mine secret tree house, we had promised each other to never let anyone else in. What I saw and heard was something that broke my heart into a million of pieces. Justin was holding Andrea’s hand, I couldn't believe it. And when he said those words to her, I almost died. He said "I Love You" and Andrea smiled. I thought I lost Justin as my friend but then I realized, you can’t lose someone you never had. I wasn’t sad anymore; I was just tired of this place. I felt relieved to leave this place finally. I went back home, packed my bags and the Next day I was on the flight London after that I never saw Justin or Andrea again. Justin's parents use to call as they really missed us, but I never talked to them, I use to hide somewhere or pretend that I am busy. Justin and I hadn’t spoken for days and I was trying to be okay with that. Then time passed by and I was trying to forget him, but I couldn’t. I wondered if he ever just stop and think “Man, I miss her”. It was after a year that I came to know about Justin signing records and then all those headlines in the newspaper that said "Bieber Fever is Everywhere" He was getting more and more famous everyday. The same boy who use to by my best friend was now a freaking famous popstar. Every day, every minute, every second, I tried to forget all the memories, his smile, his laugh, his voice but I ended up missing it more than ever. Sharon read the letter and she didn't know how to react, to be happy because he was here now or to be sad because this all happened. She put her bag aside and kept the letter safe somewhere.
