I closed my door and put the picture in my drawer. I found a picture of me,Janet,and mom,I took the picture out of the gold and silver frame and put the drawing in it. I put it on the drawer,in front of the mirror. I smiled at it and I went downstairs. I walked around the kitchen,thinking of something to cook...pizza! I grabbed things like flour,tomatoes,garlic,pepperoni,cheese ect.
"What are you up to now?" Miles asked me,I looked up and smiled.
"Making a pizza...my dad and I used to make the dough and the sauce when I was little..." I smiled at the thought of dad wiping a little bit of sauce on my nose. Miles gave me a warm smile and stood beside me.
"Can I help?" I giggled and nodded.
Soon,Miles and I were sitting at the table eating pizza and drinking soda. We had many,conversations and laughed at each others jokes,we had a lot in common. We finished off our food and put the dishes in the sink. Miles went back upstairs to his room,I followed behind him. He got out a sketch book and a big box of colored pencils. I sat next to him as I watch his drawing develop into something.
"What did you want to tell me earlier?" I asked,Miles froze,his magenta pencil stopped moving along the white sheet of paper.
"I...uh...I" I started to get confused,what did he want to tell me earlier that is suddenly so secretive. Miles just sighed and made one more swift line with his colored pencil and put it to the side.
"I...like...you..." The awkward silence between us filled the warm air in his room,I shifted and cleared my throat.
"I like you too!" I said,breaking the silence,Miles shook his head and turned to look at me. He pushed his glasses onto his nose,his cheeks turned bright pink.
"No,I might be in love with you,Maddy..." I looked down at the carpet and thought about what he just said.
"I'm sorry! I know that you and Zack are together its just that your so pretty,kind,smart,and I just...ugh! I'm sorry..." I put my hand on his shoulder and looked into his eyes.
"No Miles its fine..." I smiled. Miles smiled too,but he looked down with sadness in his eyes,he tried to hide it with a small smile,but I wasn't buying it. I sighed and stood up.
"I'm going to get to sleep,night..." I left his room and jumped onto the bed,closing my eyes and forcing myself to go to sleep.
I woke up to screaming,arguing,cursing. I quickly sat up and checked the time on my phone, 2:00 AM. I groaned and put my feet on the floor,I quickly pulled my feet up,the floor was cold. Miles turned the air on last night,I pulled my shirt around my body tighter,I stood up and put my ear against the door,trying to figure out what was going on,I could hear Miles and Zack clearly.
"WHAT THE HELL ZACK!" Miles yelled.
"What?" Zack sounded so casual....what was Miles mad about?
"You was just making out with some girl!"
"Uh,you.Zack.Has a girlfriend. Maddy. I'm pretty sure that she loves you." Zack groaned.
"Just don't tell her and we'll be fine!" Zack says,I hear him lean against the wall,I hear Miles' hand slap his face. I giggle at the thought of Miles giving himself a face palm.
"No dude,you are not going to bring me into this,you're telling her,if you don't...I will..." I already know... I looked down at the carpet and blinked,a tear fell onto the carpet,I felt another one make its way down my cheek,it tickled the slightest bit. I looked back up and kept listening,even though it hurt to hear Zack not wanting to be honest to me,and Miles being the caring one here.
"There's no way that you would do that to me!" Miles let out a chuckle.
"Are you trying to ruin my relationship with Maddy!?"
"I would be if I just sat back and watched you lie to Maddy's face! I''m trying to be a good friend!"
"To me,or to Maddy!" Silence. I froze,say something!
"Both..." Zack scoffed.
"You,need to do it!" Miles yelled.
"No! These are my decisions! I can handle two girls at once! They both love me!" Then, silence,it grew tense. Another tear fell,onto my chin and it was gone,one tear after another. I took a breath,I was silently crying.
"Do you love them?" Zack paused.
"That doesn't matter..."
"Unbelievable!" Miles yelled.
"I know that I love Maddy! We're losing it though! I just don't get it!" I heard Zack groan and there was a thud on the wall,did he just punch the wall?
"Maybe its because OF YOU!!" Miles yelled.
"HOW CAN SHE LOVE YOU,YOU ARE TERRIBLE TO HER!" Then I heard,Zack let out a scary roar,then there was an 'ouch!' from Miles,what the heck?! I heard all of these slapping,and punching noises. I've had enough.
"What the hell is wrong with you two!?" I yelled,opening the door,it hit the wall hard once I opened it,I ran over to both of them and pushed Zack away from Miles.
"Miles,are you okay?" I asked him,I held his chin in my hand,examining a small scratch on his cheek.
"Yeah,I'm fine..." He held my wrist gently,I looked up into his brown eyes,I gave him a small smile and patted his hand. I turned around to face Zack.
"Don't talk to me!" I yelled.
"I heard EVERYTHING!" I yelled. I let a tear fall,I gave Zack a hard slap on the cheek before returning to my room.
