"J-Juliet?" I questioned, completely forgetting about a drink for Tatiana.
"Yea baby, I-I saw you and I couldn't help but say that I have to apologize," she sighed. Her lips were cut up and her eye and cheek were still bruised from Anna's attack. That made me feel bad even though what she had done to me. "I j-just need a second to explain," she sniffed and fidgeted with the zipper on her jacket. She was nervous and I could tell by the way she stuttered and tried to distract herself.
I took a glance down at my watch then looked around the store for Jinxx. He was still searching through the candy aisle so I sighed, "You have two minutes." After all, everyone deserves a second chance right?
"So did you like live here or were you just visiting?" I asked Tatiana. She's not as bad as she seems. She was actually really funny and nice.
"I actually only came cause my friends were telling me about this brand new bar that had opened up and apparently it was the shit. And it just so happens that we went the same day the boys did."
"That's major luck right there," I chuckled. Ashley, Jake, and CC were in the back of the bus, so Tatiana and I were trying to learn more about each other.
"So how did you end up here? She asked and crossed her legs on the couch to face me.
"Actually I lived in a apartment right down the street from the Salt Lake concert, but I couldn't go. So I was walking to 7-11 and in my way home I was walking along the side of the are an. Then I got mugged and the guy who was holding my mouth, was smoking and smelt like smoke, and I have severe Asthma. So I basically passed out and I guess they found me."
"Whoa that is not what I expected," she widened her eyes and shook her head.
"Meh," I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm okay now. When do you think Andy and Jinxx will be back?"
"They should have been back by now," she looked towards the door.
As if she had telepathic powers, the door to the bus opened when she stared at it. Andy barged into the bus, tossing a Mtn.Dew Kickstart at me and one at Tatiana too. He tossed them harshly so I barely caught mine (I almost dropped it) and Tatiana's hit the back of the couch then landed on her knee.
"Thanks," I said. He didn't say a word, he didn't even look at me, he just stalked off towards the back room. Jinxx came into the bus, completely silent and followed Andy back.
"That was weird. Aren't you too like a thing?" Tatiana said once the two boys had left.
"I-I uh kinda," I was too shocked at what had happened to answer the question. I stood up and sat my drink where I was sitting then tiptoed back into the back room. When I opened the curtain, all five boys eyes were on me. Andy looked away almost immediately though, guilt was stricken in his eyes.
"A-Andy can we t-talk?" I asked suddenly very nervous. I didn't want him to be mad at me.
He looked up at me. His eyes solemn and his expression blank. And he just stared at me. For a second it was a sad, puppy dog stare. Then it was back to a blank expression. His eyes were cold, making me regret wanting to talk. But after a minute he slowly nodded and stood up. We walked into the bunk area as Tatiana passed us and walked I to the back room. I continued to lead Andy into the main area.
"Are you mad at me?" I asked as soon as we got there. He had his hands stuffed in his pockets and he was looking down at his feet, shuffling back and forth.
"Hey," I said and stood up closer to him, so he was looking down at me. Fuck our height difference.
"No god Anna I'm not," he said and backed up quickly.
"Then what happened in the store that makes you not want to talk to me?" I questioned.
He was quiet, but hitting his lip as if he was deep in thought, "I don't know. Don't you think this is going to fast? I-I can't do this Anna."
Did you hear that? The shattering of my heart. How it was pounding in my chest until it finally burst. That one final blow. The match that set off the propane tank. I took a step back and grabbed the base of my neck.
"Okay," I was running out of breathe. I started breathing heavier. My throat was contacting making me cough and wheeze. I looked up at Andy, and he just turned and walked away. I could feel my eyes tearing up. But not because of the lack of oxygen, but because of Andy. I dropped to my knees, coughing and gasping for air. Tears were running down my face and the dripped off my chin. I desperately reached around on the counter, not being able to find my inhaler. Leave it to me to have an asthma attack right now.
And leave it to Andy to walk away.
Suddenly CC ran into the room, my inhaler in his hands and dropped to the floor next to me. He shoved the inhaler into my hands and cradled me in his arms while I used my inhaler. Ashley and Tatiana ran in only seconds later. I continued to cry and wipe my nose.
I hated crying.
I hated Andy.
And I hated having asthma.
