I woke up the next morning sore.
Emily was already awake, looking out the window.
I wanted to sneak up on her but when i got up i groaned making her turn around.
"How are you feeling?" she said sitting next to me.
"Sore." I said rubbing my neck.
She kissed me on the cheek and i kissed her on the lips.
"I'm so lucky." I said.
"Why is that?" She asked.
"Because I'm dating the most beautiful, smart, kind, adorable, funny girl on earth and heaven." I said.
Then sat in my lap and curled into a ball.
"So your cheating on me, with who?!" She said laughing.
"Well i think you know her, she has soft, curly, brown hair and these gorgeous green eyes." I said playing with her hair.
"She sounds awesome!" Emily said looking up at me.
I leaned my head down to kiss her when there was a knock at the door.
Why is everyone always up so early?
Emily went to get it.
I followed her.
She opened the door and said. "what do you want?"
It was Kyle.
"I came to apologize." He said looking guilty.
"I kinda lost it yesterday."
"KINDA!?!? YOU HUNG COLLIN!!!" Emily yelled.
"Yeah, I'm sorry."
"Well sorry isn't gonna cut it, stay away from Collin, Jake and i." She said.
"Oh by the way we found out about your dirty little secret." I said.
He looked at me confused.
"You didn't get beat to death." I said.
Realization crossed his face.
"You committed suicide." Emily asked, "why?"
He nodded. "My life sucked, my dad left when i was young and my mom always blamed me, saying their relationship was perfectly fine before i was born, i was an accident. I finally cracked when my girlfriend cheated on me, i hung myself."
Emily and i were silent.
"That does not give you the right to go around and torture others!" Emily yelled.
"I was just jealous and mad." Kyle said.
"I don't care, just leave!" She yelled and he did.
I felt a bit bad for yelling at him but it wasn't right what he did.
"I'm going to go home and get cleaned up." I said leaving.
"Okay." Collin said.
As i walked over to my house i noticed Kyle on his steps.
I told myself to ignore him and keep walking but i felt bad, his life was a mess, he was broken and i guess he just snapped.
I stopped and turned towards him.
"I'm sorry for yelling at you early." I said.
"Thats alright, i deserved it, i shouldn't have done that. I just had so many years of anger built up inside me and i just snapped when you chose Collin, i really am sorry." He said as he came up to me.
"I understand, but you really do need to control that anger." I said.
"Yeah i know." He said looking at his shoes.
"I just got really upset that you didn't like me in that way, I'm crazy about you, the moment you opened your door that day i met you i said to myself 'damn thats a fine girl, and i'd be lucky to get her to fall for a guy like me.'"
I was speechless.
Before i knew what was happening Kyle leaned towards me and put his mouth over mine.
I pulled away and ran into my house, slamming the door behind me.
