1. You Again

You Again

 

"Anna wake up, you're moving today!" I grunted at the squeaky and shrill voice if my mother. I sat up and rubbed my face till it was ready to fall off. I didn't want to get up, but there was no way I would make it to London by the time it got dark if I didn't. I looked around at all of the boxes and my heart sank. I was finally leaving Holmes Chapel. I hated it there, I have so many bad memories in that place and I've only had one friend my entire life...then he left and I was forced to make a new one. I stood up and dragged myself down the stairs and to the kitchen to get some sort of food into my body before I had to start loading everything into my pick up truck.

 

"Are you excited?" Asked my brother, Charlie. I shoved a granola bar in my mouth and chugged a glass of milk down my throat.

 

"I guess," I was never an enthusiastic person about anything. I was excited on the inside but I just didn't know how to show it. The front door opened and in came my best friend, Nicky.

 

"Good Morning Kyle Family!" He cheered. "Anna," he greeted and ruffled my hair. I sighed and fixed it up. "So when do you want to start packing up the truck?" He asked, as if he was on a time restriction.

 

"Boy, you sure are in a rush to get me out of here," I joked as I made my way inside and up the stairs. "Let me just take a shower and get dressed." So I did. I got dressed in a jump suit and a pair of trainers, there was no need for effort today. I came down carrying one of the boxes and ordered Nicky around for the next 20 minutes. We decided to take a small break before continuing.

 

"So, Anna. I know you probably won't care but you know, Harry is coming into town today..." I rolled my eyes. Harry was the last person I wanted to here about right now. I stopped caring after a year or so, and I guess so did he. "Ellis is throwing a party for him,"

 

"Of course she is...God, I hate her!," I said, I guess I forgot to put my filter up today. Ellis was the popular girl in my town. She's the one that every guy hooks up with and she's the biggest whore, ever since grade 7. When we were in grade 7, she made a rumor about me that I was a drug addict and was sent away to rehab when in actuality, I was on holiday for a week. Yet, everyone seemed to believe her, except for Harry. But he doesn't matter anymore. He dropped me a long time ago, so now I'm dropping him. I looked down and sighed, "You can go if you want." I whispered to Nicky, he's always had a thing for Ellis.

 

"Why would I go? You're leaving today and I wouldn't skip on you to go to some party." I hugged him as hard as I could and tried to fight back tears. He's my best friend and I was leaving him, now I have to make another one...again. "Aw come on, save the tears for later." I stood up and began to pack again.

 

*1 Hour Later*

 

I had one box left before I could properly be finished. I looked around at my empty room and sighed. I was leaving, I was finally leaving and heading to a big city. I contemplated the long sleepless nights and the culture shock, the endless amounts of people and the fact that my life savings would eventually go away and I would have to get a job. I laughed to myself and made my way to my window. I saw an unusual car across the road. It was a nice one, and I thought that maybe my neighbor had gotten a new car but boy was I wrong.

 

I grabbed the last box and made my way downstairs and outside of my house, only to find the man of the hour leaning against my old truck. I felt my heart pang and the oh so familiar lump in my throat had returned. He smiled at me but ignored it. "Well, look what the cat dragged in," I whispered as I passed him and placed it in the trunk.

 

"Well hi to you too," he said, obviously offended. I stopped and placed my hands on the bed of my truck.

 

"Why are you here, Harry?" I was annoyed, frustrated, angry, and every other synonymous word in the dictionary.

 

"I came to say hello," he said in a hushed tone. I scoffed and closed the door to the bed. I slid the cover of the bed down and slammed it angrily in place.

 

"You came to say hello?" I took a few deep breaths to try and calm myself down but it didn't work. In a matter of three seconds my tolerance for bull shit went from zero to a million and I was ready to explode. "After three years of you ignoring me and forgetting that I exist, you decide to all of a sudden show up to say hello?" I was furious. My hands were balled into fists and I could barely see. 

"Well when you put it that way I-"

 

"You've got some fucking nerve!" I grunted and felt the warm tears run down my face and fall on my chest. I made sure I had everything in my car that I needed and unlocked the door.

 

"Look, Anna, I'm sorry." He placed his hand on my door so I couldn't open it. I looked him in the eye and felt my chest begin to rise and fall rapidly. It was the first time I had seen him and talked to him in person since he left in the summer of 2010. It was now almost December of 2013.

 

"You're sorry...he's sorry..." I laughed to myself and shook my head. I saw Nicky come outside behind Harry and he watched in shock. I could see the pain and guilt in his eyes but I didn't care. We were best friends since birth and then he decided to cut me off after 16 years and he comes to apologize now? After all of the times he's come,  home he had made not one effort to say anything until now? I didn't know what to say...he left me almost speechless. Yet, there was only one thing I felt fit to say to him. "You're an asshole." I opened the car door and slammed it. I fiercely started my car and slammed on the steering wheel as I broke down. Good thing my windows were almost fully tinted or else I would have looked like a complete child. This was the first time in a while that I've cried about this. I watched Harry walk to his car and get in, but he never left. Nicky got in and tried to comfort me but I pushed him away. After a few minutes of sobbing my guts out to Nicky, my mother knocked on the window and I quickly attempted to collect myself. I got out and hugged her, I would miss her but I'm glad I'm leaving. She didn't question my bloodshot eyes and my hiccuping. I think she just thought it was because I was leaving. Next was Charlie, and then my father. I said my goodbyes and got back in the car. I turned to see Nicky staring at me with amazement. I felt my anger build up again but I let it subside before I could do anything stupid. 

 

"Are you ready?" I nodded and pulled out of the driveway. Goodbye Holmes Chapel and every shitty person in it. Hello London, which was probably also filled with many shitty people.
