I got out of my car, locking it as I walked towards Tori...and Ava? What the hell is she doing here? I rolled my eyes as she smiled at me. I sat down next to Tori, across from Ava.
Me: Hey, Tori.
Tori: Hey, Dawn.
Ava: Don't I get a 'hey'?
Ignoring her, I took my phone out of my pocket and put it on the table.
Me: So what's up?
Tori: We need to talk.
I heard Ava groan.
Me: What about him?
Ava: That he's a douchebag and a girl.
Tori: Dawn, you're always with him.
A waiter came up to us.
?: Can I get you ladies anything?
He winked at me. I rolled my eyes and looked at the menu.
Me: Can I get an orange mango smoothie?
Tori: Make that two.
Ava: A strawberry smoothie, please.
She smiled at him. He rolled his eyes and wrote on his pad.
?: I'll be back with your drinks.
He looked at me and smiled.
?: And the name's Tyler, by the way.
I rolled my eyes as he walked away.
Tori: I think he likes you.
Me: Whatever. Back to Justin.
Ava: Ugh, can't we talk about something else?
Tori: So...about Justin.
Ava: Fine then. Don't listen to me.
Me: So what if I'm always with him?
Tori: So what? Dawn, he has a girlfriend.
Me: And? What, he's not allowed to be around other girls? He's not married to the slut.
Tori: I'm just reminding you.
The waiter came back with our drinks. With mine, he handed me a napkin with writing on it.
Tyler: Call me sometime.
He winked, walking away. I rolled my eyes and ripped the napkin in half.
Me: I'm tired of guys just smiling and winking at me, expecting me to flirt along. Can't one guy just be like Justin?
Tori: What do you mean?
Me: I mean, he's the only guy who actually took his time in getting to know me. Most guys I meet just give me their number and expect me to call them. Like, what the heck, man? You don't bother getting to know me before giving me your number? I'm not desperate, you know. I'm not a slut, either.
Tori: So...you'd rather date someone like Justin than accept the fact that some random guy likes you?
Ava: That's stupid.
Me: Like you know anything about guys.
Ava: I'm just saying. So you'd rather date a guy who doesn't have a dick than date a guy who does?
Okay, that's it. I shot up from my seat and stormed over to her. I grabbed her arm, pulled her out of her seat, and twisted her arm behind her back. I pushed her up against the wall, twisting her arm even more.
Me: Talk about him like that again and sure enough you won't see daylight ever again.
I pushed her to the ground, letting go of her arm. I turned around and looked at Tori, a shocked expression on her face.
Tori: You love him, don't you?
My eyes went wide at what she said. I walked towards the table, grabbing my smoothie and phone off the table.
Tori: Answer my question, Dawn.
Ignoring her, I ran towards the parking lot. Do I love Justin?
She walked towards me, shoving her keys in her pocket.
Selena: What do you want, Justin?
Me: I want to talk.
Selena: Hurry up, cause I have an interview to go to.
Me: Why don't you call me anymore?
Selena: You're one to talk. You never answer my calls.
Me: But I call you back afterwards.
Selena: Yeah, but it's a short message because you're always with that bitch you call a friend.
I bit the inside of my lip in anger, balling my fists at the side.
Me: Don't call her that.
Selena: Open your eyes, Justin. It's obvious she's using you.
Me: Excuse me?
Selena: You heard me.
Me: If she was using me, she would have tossed me out the window by now.
Selena: No she wouldn't have.
Me: How do you know? You've used people before?
She remained silent.
Me: That's what I thought. Stop judging her. She didn't do anything to you. Quit your jealous bullshit.
Selena: Me? Jealous of her? Give me a break. Who would ever be jealous of her? She's nothing but a slut.
I clenched my fists tighter, my knuckles turning white.
Me: Stop calling her names.
Selena: What are you gonna do about it? Hit me? Go ahead, I dare you.
Me: If you weren't a girl, I would.
I turned around and stormed off.
Selena: That's right, run away, asshole. Run to the girl who uses you.
I flipped her off and got in my car. I'm sick of her bullshit. She has no right to call Dawn that. If she ever disses Dawn like that again, I'm not giving her another chance. I'm done. Done with her and her bullshit.
