It's been a month now and Tony has been totally ignoring me since the day Chad and him had that little fight. I was working today, wondering if he would come by the shop and surprise me like he used to. "You should just go to his house and tell him how you feel, it's almost time to leave anyways." Sam suggested, as I was on a break. "I don't think he'd be happy to see me." I replied. "I bet he's dying to see you." David added. I looked at them and thought about it for a second. "Fuck it, fine, I'm going." I said, smiling. "Go get your prince charming." I heard them say as I left. I ran inside my car and put the roof down, starting to drive with the music loud and the wind running through my hair. As soon as I arrived to his house, I saw that there was a party going on.
"And he didn't invite me." I murmured to myself. I got out of my car and walked inside. "Vic!" I yelled. "Hey! I've been wondering where you were. Did Tony invite you?" He asked.
"Actually no. I came to explain something to him, do you know where he is?" I answered. "Oh you don't know?" He murmured. "I dont know what?" I questioned. Jaime waved at me and took his boyfriend. "Wait!" I yelled before they both danced away. I grabbed a Jack Daniels bottle and started drinking right from it. I walked outside and looked for Tony. "Where is he?" I asked myself. I walked back inside and found Mike. "Hey Mike." I smiled. "Hey Jade, want some?" He asked, passing me a blunt. "Don't mind if I do." I sighed.
"Did you find out about Tony and his girlfriend?" He asked. I exhaled the kush and looked at him. "Nice release, by the way." He said. "He has a girlfriend?" I asked before putting the blunt between my lips and inhaling again.
"Oh I thought you knew." He looked down.
I gave it back to him and looked away. "Have anymore? I have a pipe in my glove compartment." I whispered.
"Yeah, I think you might need it." He flashed me a smile. "Yeah." I sighed and took a sip from the Jack Daniels bottle. He left to go get it and I stood there, staring at the stars. Once he came back, he gave me a bag of weed and I smiled. "Thanks Mikey. I'll see you later." I said, giving him a hug. "Alright, drive safely. Don't do anything that'll injure you and your car." He replied smiling. I laughed and placed the Jack Daniels bottle on the floor. "Tell your brother and Jaime that I said hi." I told him. "What about Tony?" He asked. "I'm here." Tony said with a girl's hand in his. "Well I'm not, so I'll see you guys later." I murmured, walking out the door and to my car.
"Can we talk?" He asked, walking to me without his girlfriend. "No, we fucking can't. You were the one who said that I could take as long as I needed and you already have a girlfriend." I replied. "Well what the fuck am I supposed to do? Let you tear apart my head because you haven't chosen me? Think about you forever while its doing me no good?" He asked. "You heard me when I said I love you. You read my text messages that explained how I felt and you knew for god damn sure that I was going to pick you." I answered. "Well now its my turn to choose. I choose Erin." He whispered. "Well then no one gets hurt." I said, wiping a tear off of my cheek. I got in my car and drove off. We weren't even dating and look at the amount of pain we're both going through. I stopped at a stop sign and screamed, punching my wheel. I plugged my phone and pressed shuffle on Ed Sheeran. "Give Me Love" started playing and I laughed. I grabbed my pipe and put some weed in, blazing it. I sucked in and started driving. I don't know where I'm going, but I just knew that I wanted to get away.
"You Need Me Man, I Don't Need You" by Ed Sheeran started playing and I laughed. "I don't need Tony." I kept on saying to myself. I started driving to Chad's house and once I got there, I opened the door. "Hey." I said. "Hi." I replied. I got on my tippy toes and placed my lips on his.
He kissed back and then broke the kiss. "You're drunk. And stoned." He guessed. "You taste it?" I asked. He nodded. "Why are you here?" He asked. "I was thinking about you." I answered. "I just want to be with you." I added, hugging him. He kissed my forehead and brung me inside, closing the door behind me. "You're not okay. Tell me everything." He said, giving me water. "I love how you know me so well." I laughed. "Why would you want to listen to me going on about my shit when you can just get drunk and stoned with me, yo?" I asked. "Because I care about you and you need someone." He answered. "Can we just like make out or something because I don't feel like talking." I said, taking a sip of the water bottle.
He sat next to me and kissed my cheek. I put my hands on his cheeks and brung his face to mine. "Kiss me." I whispered.
He pecked my lips and then stood up. "I'm not going to take advantage of you while you're drunk and stoned." He replied. "Fuck, man." I said under my breath and stood up. "Help a nigga out." I laughed, stumbling and falling to the floor. I started crying and laughing. Inside I was screaming.
"I knew you've been crying, please tell me why. I hate seeing you like this." He whispered in my ear as he caressed my cheek and played with my hair. "Just lay with me in bed please. No more questions till morning." I said. He picked me up and placed me in his bed. I kicked off my jeans and I was left in a tank and my underwear. I got under the covers and so did he. "I'm sorry." I whispered, with a crack in my voice.
"Why are you sorry? I should be. I've been such a dick. If you like Tony than be with him. As long as I don't lose you." He replied.
I started crying harder. "Fuck Tony! Fuck everything! God damn I just want to be with you, okay." I screamed. He cuddled me close and whispered sweet nothings in my ears while playing with my hair. "That's all I want. That's all I want. You." I heard him whisper in my ear before drifting asleep.
I woke up with a pounding headache. "Fuck." I murmured, sitting up with my hand on my head. "You're up." Chad smiled, walking in the room; sitting in front of me. "God Chad, I'm so sorry for coming to your house while I'm drunk. I was such a wreck ugh." I said. "It's alright. I'm always there for you, I don't mind... Plus, I was pretty happy that you thought of me when you were drunk." He replied. "You're such a good guy and all of these years I've been using you, I'm so sorry." I wiped away a tear. "Stop saying sorry. You're Jade, you don't say sorry for nothing. You're that beautiful girl that I fell in love with in high school. The one that loved adventures and being care free. You've never used me, you just knew that I'd do anything for you." He told me. I kissed him, us now laying down with me on top of him. He quickly kissed back and I started to take off his shirt. "Are you sure you want to do this?" He asked.
"Yes, yes, I am." I answered. "But first, what happened last night?" He asked.
"I went to Tony's house and I found out that he has a girlfriend and during the process I got drunk and stoned with Mike." I explained. "So that's why you came here and want to do this. You want me to numb your pain." He murmured.
"Not entirely. From how you were last night and now, I realized that I've actually always loved you." I replied. "I love you, Chad." I said. "I love you too, and out of that love, I'm going to give you a week to see that you still love me then." He replied.
"I don't want to be your only option just because the better choice is now taken." He added.
"I understand, Chad. But hey, wanna just hang today? Maybe go to Disney or something." I suggested. "Pleeeaaassseee." I begged. "Fine. Just because I know how much you love Disney." He gave in. "Oh shut up, you know that I didn't even have to beg, you love Disney too." I laughed. "Shut it, Jade." He winked.
