"You really are a whore." Those words echoed in my head.
That's a really good way to make me fall for him, no? Why of course not. Those words hurt me.
I felt tears fall through my eyes. I cried because those words hurt me, especially because those words were said by the person you accidentally fallen in love with.
I ran downstairs to my Kitchen and searched for the sharpest knife I could find and got one. I strode off to the Bathroom after and checked my reflection in the mirror. Tears were streaming down my face. It hurts.
I turned to my wrist and slowly cut myself, my gaze following the dark blood rushing down from the my arm. I walked back to the Kitchen to place the knife back to the counter and ran upstairs into my room. I curled up in my own bed, letting all the tears out and at the same time.
"He isn't worth it, Acacia." I whispered to myself. "He will never like you, not even one bit. He's got Elizabeth." I suddenly dozed off, tears still streaming down my face.
I woke up 30 minutes before my alarm clock would start ringing. I turned it off before it would ring.
I decided to take a bath first and went down to my Kitchen. I saw my stepmother cooking pancakes as I sniffed the pancake-scented air. I saw my father reading a newspaper.
"Good Morning." My father greeted me in a happy tone.
"Morning." I greeted him back and my stepmother glared at me.
"You didn't clean the house last night before we got home, so you don't deserve any pancakes." My stepmother growled. "You'll have a sandwich instead."
She pointed to a sandwich which was neatly placed on the table.
"Thank you." I said and she just turned around without saying anything.
I started chewing on my sandwich and grabbed my bag right after.
"Bye." I waved a goodbye to my parents and my father returned it with a wave.
I walked out of my house and just drove my bike away from the awful house.
I arrived to the entrance in no time and parked my bike in the parking lot. I noticed Harry walking up the steps towards the Entrance door and I quickly hid.
Wait, why am I hiding? I strode off to the Entrance door and went to my locker. Eventually, people were mumbling something bad about me and were starting to take a chance to glance at me from time to time. I didn't care and just didn't look at them.
"Hey Acacia!" A voice called out to me.
"Hey Casandra." I greeted her as I got my Science book. "Why are you happy?"
"I just wanted to hear the juicy gossip that you're about to share with me." Casandra told me, nudging my shoulder.
"Juicy..." I paused, squinting my eyes. "Gossip?"
"Yeah." She told me. "Don't tell me they're not true?"
"What are you talking about?" I asked, trying to make her spit it out.
"About the part of you and Harry dating!" Casandra told me and I felt my heart leap.
Harry and I dating? Is that even possible? I laughed at the thought. That will never happen, I know it.
"You're blushing." Casandra told me.
"I know." I told her. "We aren't dating, you know that."
"Seriously? Elizabeth was telling everybody about it." She muttered and pointed to me that Elizabeth was whispering about something to a group of people who kept looking at me.
"Just because Harry enjoys going to my house," I groaned. "doesn't mean that we're dating." I marched off to Elizabeth who had a smirk on her face.
"Hey Elizabeth," I said. "or shall I say, the whore."
She made her smile wider. "Hello there slut."
"So, I heard there's this new rumor spreading around." I told her as she stared at her polished nails.
"Which rumor? I hear a lot of rumors everyday." Elizabeth told me.
"The part where you horrible boyfriend and I are dating." I told her.
"Isn't it true?" Elizabeth scoffed. "What makes you think of that?" I asked her.
She just gave out a ridiculous, high-pitched laugh. "He always has his eyes on you these days." She told me.
"No." I denied. "You're just imagining that."
"You'll see." She told me and grabbed her bag. But before leaving me behind, she kicked me with her high heels. She just kept kicking me on the same spot repeatedly and I whimpered in pain.
"Bye loser." She just laughed and strode off.
Those hurt, a lot. I felt tears about to fall down my eyes but I tried my best to stop it.
"Acacia?" I heard a deep voice call out from behind me and I looked up. It was Harry who had his sympathetic eyes on me.
"Go away." I told him.
"What the hell happened?" Harry asked me.
"Nothing, just go away!" I growled and he jerked his head away from me.
He quickly pulled me up and I stared at him. Is it just me or is he being nicer to me?
"Just stay out of Elizabeth's way and she'll not hurt you." He told me and petted my hair before leaving.
I just stood there frozen. This isn't right, shouldn't he just kick me or something? He acted a whole lot nicer to me in public this time.
"Acacia?" I heard Casandra call out to me. "Harry is being nicer, right?" She asked.
"I don't know why." I admitted. "Let's just get to class." I told her and she nodded in agreement.
I couldn't believe that I was actually acting nicer to Acacia in public just not moments ago. But, I know I should be.
I didn't really mean to say those things nor did I want to help her.
I just remembered what happened in her house yesterday.
Yeah, I remembered that I wanted her to fall for me. Okay, I admit that I knew that that will never happen. Never will.
Well, unless you go back to the past and redo everything you have done wrong, especially about me bullying Acacia.
Yes, I know and I know I now deserve to be with Elizabeth. Though, I've gotta admit.
I don't feel the same way whenever I'm with Elizabeth. It's like she's nothing to me already.
But, Acacia is. Whenever I'm with her, my whole world starts to change.
"Harry?" I heard a sweet, gentle voice call out. "Liz." I said and forced a smile on my face as I turned to her.
"So, wanna go out tonight?" She winked at me with a sly smile on her face.
"Not this week, gorgeous." I refused. "Not even next week."
"Why not?" She asked, worriedly.
"'Cause," I paused. "I needed to finish my project with Acacia."
"No, you could leave it all to her." She told me though I shook my head.
"No thanks." I said "I'm going to be late for Science." I kissed Elizabeth and walked away.
Yes, I refused. I didn't want to go with her anyways.
I just got a feeling that I preferred to be with Acacia more than with her, I didn't know why though.
