9. Chapter 8

I open my laptop and slide on my glasses. I hated them, and I'm glad I only needed them for when I'm reading or when I'm using a computer. A website pops up on my screen and I scan the website before tears brim my eyes. In big letters, it said

Emily Harbor you have until Friday to break up with Caleb. See you later.......

I slam the laptop's screen closed and bury my face in my arms. I had to break up with Caleb by Friday? My stomach hurts as I get out my journal.

People who didn't send me the message:

Bobby

Caleb

People who could've sent it:

Willow

Brooke

Maddie

Erin

I uncap a red sharpie with my mouth and circle willow's name. I think about the boy who's liked me for years, and I write Aaron's name down. I pull off my glasses and lay on my back, breathing hard. These are one of those times that I wish Bobby wasn't autistic. If I told him even about just the pictures, he'd blow off his hinges. And I couldn't tell Brooke; she was on the suspect list. Maybe I could tell Caleb. It didn't say I couldn't. Maybe he's understand.

Emily: Caleb can I come over? Like now?

Caleb: sure baby is everything alright?

Emily: no it isn't

I change into a black sweatshirt and blue jeans with gray toms. With that I turn off my phone and drive to his house. I ring his doorbell, and he immediately pulls me inside. Are you alone? I ask under my breath. He nods quickly. And I break down into tears. He catches me before I hit the ground and helps me to the couch. Emily what's wrong? He sounded shocked. I tearfully pour out my story. When I was done his jaw was to his shirt, his green eyes wide. He just holds me tightly and let's me sob. I had no idea what to do next.
