81. Sick of you!
I was only gone for about 10 minutes. When I walked back into the cafeteria there was a whole bunch of people surrounding the table we were sitting at. I went between everyone to get to the table to sit what was wrong. That’s when our eyes made contact. I turned around and started walking out of the cafeteria. I saw Justin for the first time in three months. All the feelings I had for him before started running through me.
“Nicole….wait!” I heard a familiar voice call from behind me.
It sounded like that person was running. I turned around to see that the person was Justin. He came to me.
“Hey. I came to see you this morning, but your brother said you went to Starbucks” Justin said with a slight smile.
“Yeah” I said while showing him the drink.
“How’ve you been?” Justin asked with sincerity in his eyes.
“Great! I'm feeling good for the first time. It's been awhile since the last time” I fake smiled.
“Look, I don’t know how many times you want me to apologize Nicole. What happened has happened and I can’t take it back, though I wish so badly that I could. I’m angry at myself not because you won’t come back, but I keep hoping that you will . I was playing a game at first, but then I really started falling for you. I was going to tell Bryan to call the bet off, but you got to him before I could and I’m sorry.” Justin said in almost tears.
“Open up for the first time and you can bet that it's the last time. What you don't know is how great it feels to let you go. I'll wave goodbye when you say hello.” I said while walking away.
