13. Chapter 13
I was there when Alex kissed that Jakeb guy. I saw everything. It hurt. I just walked away, before she came into the bus, and layed in my bed. I heard her joking with the guys. I rolled over and closed my eyes.
I woke up before anyone else, the next morning. I just layed there until I heard everyon else start to wake. I stood and stretched, walkig to the couch. I sat down and flipped on the TV.
A little while later, Alex walked out looking tired.
"Morning." She said smiling.
"You look happy."
"The date went awesome last night." She sat down beside me.
"Thats good" I lied and smiled. She smiled back and stared at the show I was watching. We watched TV until the rest of the guys came out.
CC suggested we go to a diner for breakfast. The driver took us to a small place and we all sat down to eat.
Andy seemed kind of happy that my date with Jakeb went well. Maybe he's changing his attitude toward everything. We all decided to go to a diner for breakfast. I had a good time. We all joked and laughed. I felt so much relief at everything.
I wonder what was up with Alex? She seemed so happy this morning. I think everyone noticed it. We all had a great time. There was always this tension there. Mostly between Alex and Andy. I wonder why that was?
Juliet and Sammi were coming today. I had never met Sammi and was kind of anxious. Jinxx told me not to worry because she would love me. I hoped so.
Juliet and Sammi both showed up a little while after we got back to the bus. Juliet waved to me and smiled and took Andy to his bunk. Sammi walked right up and hugged me.
"Its great to meet you, Alex" She smiled.
"You too." I returned, smiling.
"I hope we can be great friends."
When Juliet and Sammi got here. Juliet took me to my bunk and we sat down.
"I missed you, sweetie." She smiled and kissed me.
"I missed you too."
"Whats the matter? You seem kind of distant." She noticed right off the bat.
"Nothing. I'm just tired."
"You havent been getting enough sleep?"
"Are you sure thats all thats bothering you?" She asked, suspiciously.
Again, I shrugged.
She bit her lip. "Look, Andy, I've been meaning to talk to you about something. I wanted to do it face to face instead of over the phone.... I think we should break up."
That caught my attention. "What? Why?" I loved Juliet, why was she doing this to me.
"I just think its best for both of us. You seem...I dont know...different since Alex came. When she frst came, I noticed how you looked at her. I just tried to ignore it but... I cant. You love her. And I think we should both move on now." She stood and kissed my cheek, then left. I just sat there in shock for a moment, then I stood and walked out to sit with everyone else.
"What happened? Why did Juliet leave?" Jake asked me.
"We broke up."
"We broke up." Andy said. My mouth dropped open. Why would they break up?
I had seen Juliet leave. She had looked at me, smiled and given a knowing look. It hadnt been because of me. Could it? No, why would it be? I mean, she could have found someone else; thought them being together wasnt working out; anything. I stared out the window while everyone questioned Andy. It couldnt have been about me.
Alex seemed oddly quiet when I told everyone about Juliet and I breaking up. Everyone questioned me. When they asked why we broke up, I just shrugged. They asked me if I was okay, I nodded. I was. I loved Juliet, but not in the same way I used to. I told everyone that we should go to get ready for our concert.
