I got up and open the door, got out, and slammed it. I ran as fast as my legs could carry. When I thought I got far enough I sat on the curb and put my head in my hands and cried my eyes out. Why would he do this me? I was just trying to to protect him.
I looked up a little and saw my watch I jumped up and ran home- fast. I got home and walked in quietly.
"YOUR LATE YOU LITTLE BITCH!", my father yelled.
"Your coming with me!" he grabbed my wrist and pulled me into his room. It's been like this since my mom died because he still believes it's my fault. It wasn't my fault that I didn't know how to use the phone when my mom had a heart attack. I was only three. Usually, I would go to Niall's after a beating, but clearly that's not an option. When he was done he had already kicked me, punched me, and stepped on me. I was broken in more ways than one.
"Are you gonna go run to your idiot friends house now?" He spit on me. I know I was mad at Niall and may never talk to him again, but I felt like I had to defend him. "Niall's not a idiot!" I whispered.
"Keep telling yourself that. He will betray you one day and you will have no one to run to!" I started to cry. He was right because little did he know it already happened. He just smirked and left. I went to the window and debating jumping out, but then I realized we were only on the first floor. I jumped out and ran not even looking where I was going. I ended up at the park. I sat down on a bench and looked up to see Niall in full make out mode with Rachael, which made me tear up again.
Rachael had called me earlier to meet her in the park. She said she had to tell me something important. As soon as I got there she just started kissing me. Of course, I kissed her back because she is my girlfriend. Plus, she said if I didn't play along and didn't act like I liked her she would hurt Carter.
That's the only reason as to why I'm dating her. I would tell Carter, but Rachael said that if I do that if I do that she would crush Carter.
I ended the kiss when I heard someone crying. I turn to my right and saw that it was a girl about our age. I look a bit closer and saw it was Carter.
"Hey, Niall what was that for?", Rachael asked demanding why I end the kiss. She stopped complaining when she saw that Carter was sitting on the bench crying. She laughed and started to walk over there.
I grabbed her arm and asked, "What are you going to do?" She pulled here arm back and smirked. "I'm going to say hi and started a conversation. You can stay right here."
"Don't hurt her.", I said. She smirked and strutted away.
I looked up through my tears and saw a figure walking toward me. I blinked at the tears and saw that the figure was Rachael.
Before I knew what I was doing I rushed at her screaming. All I was thinking was that she took Niall from me in just a day's time. I tried to hit her but she was too fast and she tripped me. She jumped on me punching me multiple times.
The next thing I knew she was being hauled off me and someone was yelling.
Niall was the one screaming, but he was screaming at me.
"CARTER! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!", Niall hollered.
"ME?! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING DATING THIS FUCKING WHORE?!", I screeched motioning to Rachael.
"YOU WERE THE ONE THAT STARTED IT!"
"YOUR SERIOUSLY TAKING THIS FUCKING MONSTER'S SIDE OVER YOUR BEST FRIEND FOR YEARS?! YOU KNOW WHAT NIALL WE ARE DONE BEING BEST FRIENDS! YOU ARE FUCKING DEAD TO ME, DO YOU HEAR ME?! DEAD!", I screeched and turned and ran.
I was stunned, her words hurt more than anything I have ever experienced. Can't she see I was doing this for her?
I had no luck going to sleep. All I could her was the words Carter had said to me. I have ruined our friendship, my life is ruined. I'm dating a girl I hate and my best friend well she is no longer my best friend.
I was out of it this morning all I could think about was Carter. It broke my heart to hear those words. I was also thinking about dumping Rachael, but I couldn't do that to Carter.
I had to pick up Rachael this morning, but I passed by Carter's just to see if she was waiting for me. She wasn't. I picked up Rachael and didn't talk to her the whole ride there. Before I got out of the car she grabbed my arm and said,"You better act like you're in love with me or I'll..."
I cut her off and said,"Yea, yea, yea or you'll beat up Carter and make her life a living hell. I know the drill." She smirked.
"Good." Suddenly, it started to pour and I quickly rolled up the windows.
When we got outside the car I looked around for Carter. Suddenly, I saw her walk in the doors soaking wet, shivering. I ran up to her.
"Carter, it's the middle of the winter, here take my jacket." I draped my jacket around her, "Why didn't you just let me pick you up?" I pleaded.
"You know damn well why.", she shuddered then walking up to Rachael," Here, he's your boyfriend." She gave her my jacket. I glanced at her hands and gasped.
"Carter! Your fingers are turning blue from frostbite we need to get you to a doctor!"
"Why would you care anyway!" She responded coldly and I whimpered.
