The next morning I wake to Daisy shaking me. I get up and get ready slowly, dreading going to school an watching the baby. I wear my flares, a white lacey long sleeve, and my gray vans. I braid my hair in a French braid that starts on the left side of my head and travels to the right where it drapes over my shoulder. I put on some foundation and eyeliner. Then I walk to phone and text Josh. He better answer. Hey why haven't you been answering my calls. I've been needing to talk to you. :( Please answer.
I wait a moment and I hear a buzz, signaling I have a text. I unlock my phone and read it. Sorry. My parents took my phone cause I was "being bad" What did you need to talk to me about?
Well... Christina came and saw me last night. Don't do anything stupid though. You can tell your parents you're going to a friends house and come and see me next time she comes.
What? Why didn't you tell me?
I couldn't get a hold of you! And Christina showed up out of nowhere. You wouldn't have had time to get here on time anyways.
So hows everything going?
Pretty good. I've already made 2 friends.
Her names Daisy and his name is Mathew.
Yeah. Whats wrong?
I just don't want to loose you. That's all.
Your not going to.
Well I gotta go. Love ya :)
Bye. Love ya too :)
He's acting strange. I shake my head and stand up. "What?" Daisy asks.
"Josh is acting weird."
"Maybe he's cheating on you."
"No he isn't!" I groan. "He was the one who asked me out!"
"Okay, okay. It was just an idea."
"A stupid one. I'm sorry I didn't mean that. I'm just worried," I sigh putting my head in my hands.
"Don't worry about it. I'm sure its nothing. Lets go. It's 7:32."
I follow her down the hall and out of the building. We walk to school and to our lockers. I grab my stuff for math and head to class. When I walk in the room I see Mathew talking to a girl with bleach blonde hair, and a long skinny body. She is sitting in my seat. I walk up to the table. I clear my throat and she turns to look at me. "What do want?" she sneers.
"Your in my seat. So if you could move your skinny ass that would be helpful," I say sarcastically.
A few people laugh. Her face gets red for a minute, but then she says, "Are you going to make me?"
"I don't think you want to go there."
"Whatever," she gets up and walks away shaking her hips as she walks.
"Were you jealous?" Mathew asks with wide eyes in fake surprise.
"No," I snap.
"You can have the baby tonight. It woke me up every 5 minutes last night!"
Mathew doesn't say anything. The teacher starts talking and I zone out like I do everyday. I look around the room reading posters hanging on the walls. Before I know it the bell is ringing and the class is filing out. I start to walk, but I am stopped. I turn around, cringing at the thought of another person like Bradly, but its only Mathew. "What? I have to get to class?"
"I need to talk to you." he pulls me down the hall to yet another janitors closet.
"No, no, no, no, NO. We are not going through this again," I shake my head.
"I promise I wont do anything," he pulls me and shuts the door. For a second it is dark, but then he flips on a light switch and I see again.
"What is it?"
"Kara. Don't freak out. Promise me you wont freak out or slap me," he narrows his eyes.
"Well... I wondering if... you'd like to come over later. I don't have a roommate and I was wondering if you'd like to see a movie," he cringes like he expects me to hit him. I feel weird. Like someone is stabbing me. If I say yes then I risk mine and Josh's relationship, but if I say no then I could hurt Mathew's feelings. I don't know why I care, but I do.
"I don't know Mathew. I think it would be weird. I mean that's sorta like a date and I have a boyfriend..."
"I knew that's what you'd say. I gotta go."
"Wait," I rush out after him.
"No... forget it. Forget I said anything," he snaps. He walks away and I dont stop him. So much for not hurting his feelings. I walk to my next class, gym. When I get there I am the last one. I run in the locker room and change. I run my 5 laps and sit on the bleachers. Mr. Callier takes attendance and we start class. Today we're playing dodge ball. Yay.
By the end of the day I haven't talked to Mathew once after our little talk. Not even in science. I walk out of the building to find Mathew making out with the girl from this morning. I gag, but keep walking. They have their tongues down each other's throat. Could they be anymore discusting? Probably. I try to ignore the hurt in my chest as I saw them, but its hard to ignore. I walk to my room holding the baby that Mathew gave me in science. I open the door and set the baby on my bed. I sit down and turn on the t.v. I flip through the channels until I see the show The Walking Dead. I watch it as I try to forget about all that happened today.
