19. Chapter Nineteen
Chapter 19 ~ Catliyn's POV
I've decided to dump Joe. Sure he's a great guy and all but I'm just not feeling it anymore. I told him that after school today. We were at our lockers when he leaned in to kiss me. I put my hands on his chest and dumped him there and then. Before he could object I walk away and started on my way home. I heard him yelling my name but he didn't come after me.
I was sitting in my room think about the break up. Was I sad? Did I feel bad? I told him the truth so why should I feel like a terrible person?
I was about to play my flute because music helps me sort out my feelings when Aislynn texted me.
(A) Hey...I saw Connor kissing Eva after school...
(C) I'll b over in 2!
I slid my phone into my pocket slipped on my sweatshirt and shoes and ran across the yeard to Aislin's house.
"Aislin?!" I called walking in.
"Upstairs!" She called back with a shaky, watery voice.
I ran up the stairs taking them two at a time. I walked into her room. She was face down on her bed sobbing into her pillow. I sat down next to her and started rubbing her back. We sat in silence for a few minutes.
"Tell me what happened."
"Well...um...c-c-Connor told me t-t-to meet him at his l-l-locker after school....except h-h-he d-d-didn't come. I waited...and...waited....and finally I w-w-went to f-f-fi-find him and...and...and..." She broke down and started crying again.
"And you saw him kissing Eva," I filled in. She nodded.
I talked to her about how it was going to be okay and how they didn't officially break up, so she still could talk to Connor and ask him what was going on. I also told her that I had dumped Joe and that we could be single together.
I stayed over for a few hours. We talked, ate ice cream, watched vines and her pick of movies.
