"Rose... I hate you." Danny spits at me. He looks broken. What have I done? I turn around and see Jackson standing behind me with a smirk.
"What? What did I do?" I ask him trying to understand what's going on.
"You really thought I wouldn't find out? I knew you would be sneaking behind my back with him." He glares at something behind my back. Jackson. What is going on?
"I don't understand." I say slowly.
"You said you loved me. Then you have your fun with that mouser." He says.
"I love you like a brother. And Jackson just got here! I don't know what you mean!" Then what happens next totally surprises me. Danny kisses me. On the lips.
I wake with a start once again. The memories of last night's dream flood my mind at a rapid pace. Danny's kiss. Him accusing me of cheating on him with Jackson. Him saying he hates me. It all causes tears to stream down my face. I don't have a crush on Danny! What is going on?! And Jackson and I together?! WHAT?!
I climb out of my bed, and stumble over to my closet. I pull over another t-shirt and struggle with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. Throw my brown hair in a messy bun, slip my converse on, and walk out the door. Skipping down the stairs, I waltz out the door and onto the bus. They laugh and try to bring me down like always, but today, it didn't work. I take my seat in the back, and scoot to the window.
"HEY ROSIE?!" One of the boys in front of me asks.
"WHAT?!" I ask with just as much enthusiasm.
"I hope you know that I don't like you." He said.
"And I care... Why? C'mon buddy. You gotta do better than that." I smirk and turn in my seat.
"Shut up." He slaps me and I turn to him with a glare that could kill.
"Are you really gonna piss me off today? You're three years younger than me. You have no idea what the hell I go through every day. Fuck off." I punch the kid in the mouth. The bus driver pretends he doesn't see and flashes a little smile. I haven't stood up to anyone in a long time. This is a big deal for me.
At last, the bus pulls into the school. But before she opens the doors, he calls over the bus mic, "Rose, please stay on the bus." Everybody looks at me and smirks. "You're in trouble now Rosie."
"I will give you another black eye if you don't walk away from me right now." I spit out with venom laced in every syllable. He looks a little scared and scurries off the bus. Th bus driver comes up to me.
"Rose, I have been driving this bus for 13 years. I have seen you being bullied for two. I know it looks like I haven't done anything, but in reality I was waiting for what happened today, to happen. What has escalated over the years, has been indescribable and what you have gone through is unforgivable, but you are the strongest person I have ever met and I know that you can survive this. You have a spark and I don't want to see those bastards put it out. Keep living." She says. By the time she's done, I have tears streaming down my face.
"Thank you so much. That is the nicest thing someone has ever said to me. Ever." I reach over and give her the biggest hug. She pulls back and smiles at me.
"Oh and I have video record of every incident." She has a small smile. I thought she didn't care. She just might be my saving grace.
"You are my hero." I smile and give her another big hug. Well today has been alot better than most days.
