I was driving with Daniella to school, the next morning.
Daniella: So, I heard that you and Justin broke up.
Emma: I was just a bet.
Daniella: What do you mean?
Emma: He made a bet with his friends that he couldn’t score me.
Daniella: Want me to kick his ass?
Emma: Thanks, but no.
Daniella: Are you okay?
Emma: Yeah, I’m fine.
I was not fine, I was broken and I really didn’t want to go to school and face him.
I just had to face it, I couldn’t escape him forever.
I took a deep breath and walked inside.
I walked down the hall and everybody was staring at me.
I just kept looking at the ground.
I had become that loser chick again.
I saw my friends and walked towards them.
Ally: Oh, so now you want to be our friend again?
Emma: listen. I’m sorry guys. I should never have chosen Justin over you guys. I forgot who my real friends were. I love you guys so much, and I get it if you never wants to talk to me again. If it helps then he broke my heart.
Ally, Mike and Dani looked at each other and smiled.
Ally: Group hug!
We laughed and hugged.
Later in the lunch break, me and Ally were standing by my locker and talked.
Justin walked towards us.
Ally looked at me.
Ally: Just call my name, if you need help to kick his ass.
I smiled and she walked away.
Justin looked at me.
I looked at the ground.
Justin: I’m sorry Emma.
I looked up. It felt like my heart got frozen.
Emma: I’m sure you are.
Justin: Will you please listen to me?
Emma: Justin, I’ve listened.
Justin: You aren’t just a bet.
Emma: I’m glad, you think like that now.
Justin: Will you please give me a chance?
Emma: No Justin. Take care.
I walked away. I didn’t even look back. He didn’t deserve it.
I walked to lunch and actually smiled.
Emma: He is an asshole. Just leave it.
I smiled and drank some of my Pepsi.
The truth was I didn’t really know how to feel. I wanted to be sad; I wanted to cry a river. I wanted to be angry. I wanted to hit him. I just didn’t know how I was supposed to feel. I had never tried getting my heart broken before.
I saw Justin sitting at the popular’s table. Amber from the cheerleader team moved closer to him and wrapped her arms around his right arm. She kissed him on the cheek. I have to admit it ripped a bit in my heart.
He looked her, I could read his lips “Get off me” and then he pushed her away.
She looked totally lost at him. He didn’t even smile.
I sneaked a peek over there, he was looking at me.
We made eye contact for about 2 minutes and then I looked away.
I wanted to go over there and just kiss him, but I couldn’t.
He broke my heart, and I didn’t want that to happen again.
I felt scared.
My friends and i walked away.
Ally wanted me to come to her place tonight.
I thought about it.
I knew that Matt was going to be there, cuz he was her big brother.
I wanted to go, for Ally.
Ally drove with me home, to get my things.
We walked to the kitchen to get a Pepsi.
I took to Pepsi’s out of the fridge, gave Ally one and sat down next to her.
Daniella walked into the kitchen, with a letter in her hand.
Daniella: The letter is here.
Ally: What letter?
Daniella: Emma's test scores from Washington State University.
Ally: Did you apply there?
Emma: Yeah, we have an aunt in Washington; I can live with until I’m done with medical school.
Ally: You wanted to be a nurse right?
Daniella gave me the letter and looked exited at me.
I opened it and looked at it.
I read it and looked at Daniella.
I looked at the air for a while, when I looked at Daniella.
Emma: I got in.
Daniella: OH MY GOSH! That is so good for you Emma!
I couldn’t believe it, I actually got in.
Ally read it and looked at me.
Ally: They want you to start before 2 weeks. You have to leave on Wednesday.
