After the Concert
I hear my ringtone (Long way home) start ti play and out of the corner of my eye I see Luke looking around wondering where it's coming from, "oh sorry thats my phone" I say to him and see him smile at me in return, I pull my phone out of my cardigan pocket and look at the caller ID 'Alan R' it says I start to wonder why he's calling me as I remember why we broke up, I feel the tears coming I quickly say "I'm sorry" to Luke and run out of the box. I turn left and run to the nearest toilet and into the first stall. With trembling fingers I answer the phone
An- Anna , Al-Alan
Al- Anna! I thought you wouldn't awnser!
An- I was thinking of it
Al- Still as funny as ever! So how has my girlfriend been haven't talked in ages?
*Can't believe after what he did he still had the nerve to call me his girlfriend!!!!*
An- We broke up 2 months ago Alan now what do you want?
Al- I was going to be nice about this but now I won't since your not going to be, I saw those pictures of you with those famous people on instagram and I just called to tell you that I am much better for you that they are and that we should get back together
An- After what you put me through? No way!
Al- Oh stop being such a goody-two-shoes and get over it already it was just a once off thing I'm over it so you should be too
An- Well I'm not over it so if you don't have anything else to say good bye Alan
Al- WAIT! If you won't go out with me I'll make your pathetic life even more misrable than it already is you know I will I can tell those famous boys that horrible rumour about you which by the way I started,
An- YOU DID WHAT?????
Al-*womans voice speaks* Alan darling come back to bed *Alan* Sorry Anna got to go but remember what I said
and with that he hung up, I slowly slid down the wall crying. I hear the toilet door swing open and hear someone yell my name, I heard a knock on the door and I heard Luke's voice say "Anna is that you you?", "Please just go way" I say while trying to stop crying.
I run out of the box after Anna I didn't see which way she went so I turned left and tried to find her I stoped running once I reached the area where the stairs and the little shop was I asked one of the men behind the counter if he had seen a girl run past but he said he hadn't, I ran back up the hallway and heard muffled sobs coming from the girls toilets I quickly ran inside and yelled "Anna?" I heard crying coming from the first stall, I lightly knock on the stall door and say "Anna is that you?" I hear her trying to stop crying and say "Please just go away" I reply "I'm not leaving until you come out here and tell me whats wrong" there's a short silence then I hear Anna get up and I hear her unlocking the lock. She walks out of the stall, her face tear-stained and her eyes all puffy and red, I pull her into a big hug while she continues to cry and we sit side by side on the floor.
I slowly walk out of the bathroom and I am engulfed in a huge hug from Luke, I start start sobbing again, I slide down the toilet wall and sit next to Luke, there's a short silence and I tell him all Alan and about the rumour "There was rumour going around my secondary school when I was in 6th year that I was a prostitute and that I got pregnat with some randomers child and had an abortion, But that's not true because I'm still a virgin, people called me a slut for the rest of the year and they always looked at me in disgust when ever I passed including the 1st years and the teachers! In the end I had to get home-schooled for because it got to the point where I'd collapse on the floor from not eating and people still didn't believe me, and now Alan's just after telling me that he made up that rumour" I said while sobbing "I believe you, now let's get you cleaned up and back to the box before the others start to worry" I slowly get up with help from Luke I waked to the sink, splashed my face with water and once I looked normal again we made our way back to the box. I wasn't going to let Alan ruin my time with the guys.
