27. it was a bad day:
i decided to skip school for the rest of the day and take a cab and follow him. drowning in my tears, i gave the taxi driver the fare and jumped out. i knocked on the door and Harry's mom opened. "oh honey don't cry come on in he's in his room" she said. i walked inside and knocked on the door of Harry's room.
"H- harry?" i asked. "i swear he was pushing me towards the wall i couldn't move" i said. he opened the door with puffy and watery eyes. "you know what Crystal? i came here because u weren't answering my calls and i knew something was wrong, i came because i missed you like crazy and i wanted to talk to your dad but WHAT WERE YOU DOING? YOU WERE KISSING A JERK CRYSTAL" he yelled making me cry harder. "Harry please why can't you believe me?" i asked. "i don't think i trust you anymore" he said.
i wiped my tears and nodded in agreement. "fine then i guess this is goodbye" i said turning around and walking out. please Harry take my hand just grab it and keep me from going, have i not had enough of problems? i miss you all i wanted was to hug you and kiss you. why Ethan? why?
i went back to school to see dad talking to the principal in the hallway. they so caught me. "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN YOUNG LADY?" dad yelled as i was walking towards them. "here i am" i said. "i'll take care of this thankyou" he said to the principal then grabbed my forearm and started to drag me out. "dad you're hurting me" i said crying, not from pain but from what happened with Harry.
the car drive was silent but when we got home, mom rushed towards me and hugged me. "we thought you ran away or something" she said. "mom i'm fine i took a walk that's all" i said. "took a walk? why can't you take a walk after school?" dad asked. "because you grounded me and you made my life terrible dad" i said when he slapped me again.
"go to your room NOW" he said. that was just a bad day. oh but wait, it's about to get worse. in the evening, mom and dad called me to get downstairs. i jumped out of bed then touched my pillow to realize it's wet from all the tears i cried. i wiped it away and tried to smile then went downstairs.
"yeah?" i said when mom sighed. "we have a bad news for you honey" she said. "there's no easy way to say it but... we're getting a divorce" dad said.
