I woke up to someone shaking me violently.
"CANDICE!!" the person yelled,I rolled over and put a pillow on my head.
"What do you want?" I asked,the person grabbed the pillow and hit me with it,I shot up to see Alice.
"We have school today..." I sighed and nodded,Alice left the room so I could get ready. I opened my suitcase and pulled this out:http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/fa/75/f1/fa75f1225cac7d1c970c94392a74f421.jpg
I sighed as I looked in the mirror,fixing my scarf. I looked down,at the beige carpet. I've been in a coma for three months and I'm going to school right after I gained my memory back,and no one knows what happened...that means one thing and one thing only...rumors. I placed my head in my hands and I shook my head,I took a few steps backwards and I landed on the bed. I shook it off and I stood up,I took another look in the mirror before I slipped on my sandals. Then Matthew calls me downstairs.
"Hey Matthew!" I said,walking down the steps,but I stopped.
"What is he doing here!?" I yelled,pointing at him. He gave me a glare,but it turned into a smirk.
"I just wanted to see you..." He says.
"No no no...who is that?" He says,pointing to Matthew. Matthew's head snaps towards him and he gives him a weird look.
"He's my boyfriend..." I say confidently. He glares at Matthew,Matthew smiles.
"But...Candice who's that?" Matthew asks me. I let out a sigh and I hop down the last two steps.
"Matthew,this is Brandon..my ex..." Matthew gets a weird look on his face and his hand falls to his side.
"I'll explain...." I mouth,Matthew nods and I look back at Brandon.
"Brandon you need to leave!" I yell. Brandon shakes his head.
"No,I say you leave this loser and come to me!" He says. Matthew shoots him a nasty glare that causes Brandon to chuckle.
"No! You never loved me!" I yell. Brandon lets out a loud bitter laugh that makes me cringe.
"I love Matthew now..." I give him a smile,he smiles back and smirks at Brandon,Brandon scoffs.
"Oh yeah? What does that loser do for you that I didn't do!?" Brandon yells.
"Matthew actually loves me...he doesn't go behind my back to date other girls. I can trust him with things that I leave him with and with things that I tell him,he gives me warm,meaningful kisses,he cuddles with me at night and makes breakfast for me in the morning. He takes me on actual dates...and..he doesn't hit me unlike you! Matthew is the one that I could actually love forever..." I say,Matthew walks up to me and he hugs me. He pulls away and he nods at Brandon. Brandon shakes his head and he turns around.
"I will be back..." He says before slamming the door behind him.
"You meant all of that?" Matthew asks me. I nod,I get a little closer to Matthew and our lips meet. It was passionate and slow,but I pulled away.
"We need to get to school!" I say. Matthew nods and I grab my bag and I run to Matthew's car.
I just got out of the car and I could already tell that today might be a bad day. There were many voices that surrounded me as I walked to my locker,Alice and Katie by my side.
'Where has she been!?'
'Maybe she tried to kill herself!'
'She was in the hospital!'
'Why was she in the hospital!?'
'Maybe her friends are in on it too.'
I got more nervous every time I heard something. I finally reached my locker,I opened it,my hand still shaking. I took out the things that I needed and I headed to class. I opened the classroom door and everyone stared at me as I took a seat.
