~~I skipped school the next day to stay home. The first time he "broke up with me" I was mostly angry because He'd done it through text, but this time he cheated on me. This time I felt heartbroken. How could he do this to me?
I sat on my couch the whole day eating ice cream. My mom was perfectly okay with it. In fact, she looked like she really wanted to rip Marshall Lee's head off.
I got few texts from my friends saying things like 'where are you?' 'marshall's worried.' and 'Mr. P just farted in class! XD'. I didn't care, I kind of just wanted to wallow in self- pity. I was doing a good job of it so far. Even when Finn got home from school I stayed on the couch and ignored everything except the cheesy movie playing on the TV
Eventually, I started getting texts from Marshall too.
Marshall: Fi? Are you ok? You weren't at school today.
Marshall: Come on quit clowning.
Marshall: Fionna are you okay?
Marshall: I'm worried about you. Please answer.
Marshall: That's it. I'm coming over!
Me: Can't you take a hint? leave me alone. Don't bother coming over.
I almost cried typing just those few words. I sat in silence for a long time when I heard a knock on the door. I managed to drag myself to the door to answer it. I groaned when I saw Marshall Lee standing there.
"What do you want?" I asked, my voice wobbling.
"I was worried about you. What's wrong?" he asked.
"Nothing." I said before slamming the door in his face and bursting into tears.
"Who was at the door?" Finn asked, coming down the stairs.
"A big jerk." I replied, wiping my eyes.
"You okay?" he asked.
"Not really. I'm going to my room." I stated.
When I was in my room I burst into tears again. I hugged my pillow, longing for the warmth of hugging Marshall. I knew it was pathetic to cry over a boy, but I loved him, and I told him so. Even though he broke my heart and he cheated on me I missed him. I wanted him to be here stroking my long hair, telling me I needed a haircut. I wanted him to make pervy jokes and act like an idiot so I could make fun of him. I wanted him to hold me and tell me that he loved me again. I know it's cheesy but my heart literally ached for him.
I heard my phone chime again. Dammit Marshall Lee! Why can't you leave me alone and let me be miserable?
Marshall: Come on Fi! answer me. Whatever I did I'm sorry!
Marshall: Don't make me beg!
Marshall: I'll do it!
Marshall: Please please please Fionna! I'm begging now! Answer me. I'm worried about you.
Marshall: Will you please talk to me?
Me: Fine. If only to get you shut the fuck up.
Marshall: Thank god! Meet me outside.
I changed out of my pajamas and splashed cold water on my face so I wouldn't look puffy. I walked down the stairs and out the front door.
"What do you want?" I asked when I saw Marshall leaning against his bike.
"Why are you so pissed off?" he responded.
"What did you do last night Marshall?"
"I was at your place, remember? We watched that stupid movie." he replied.
"And after you left?"
"I went home and... Oh shit."
"Oh so you do remember." I said, trying my hardest not to cry.
"Look, Fi. It wasn't what it looked like." he started.
"I don't care. You cheated on me Marshall Lee!" I said, my voice cracking. Fuck!
"She snuck into my room! Fionna, you have to believe me!" he pleaded.
"It looked like she did way more than that." I whispered.
"She attacked me! Fi, please, I love you and only you." he said, grabbing my hands. "I kicked her out as soon as I could detach her!"
"I don't think I can do this anymore Marshall." I said before snatching my hands away and running back inside.
I stood there staring at her front door for a solid ten minutes before I climbed on my bike and rode it to the nightosphere. I had a gig there tonight and I wanted to take Fionna with me. I guess that's not gonna happen.
When I got to the club I found Marceline, Laura and Flo talking in a corner of the room.
"Hey Marshall!" Flo greeted.
"Hey, where's Fi?" Laura asked.
"She's not coming." I said. "I think she broke up with me."
"WHAT!?" they yelled simultaneously.
"Last night Ashley snuck in to my fucking room and basically attacked me. Fionna saw the whole thing and got the wrong idea." I explained.
"Ashley's such a bitch!" Laura exclaimed.
"So you guys believe me?" I asked.
"Yeah dude! Ashley better watch out." Marcy said.
"I'm glad to hear that. but Fionna won't believe me. I tried explaining it to her but she just ran away." I said.
"Just leave her to us. We'll handle that. Now we need a plan to get back at Ashley." Flo said.
"Okay... Well I have to go backstage and set up for the show. See ya." I said.
The next day at school Fionna showed up but whenever I tried to talk to her she walked away. Marceline, Flo and Laura kept telling me not to worry but it didn't look like they were making progress. I did see them corner her at her locker at the end of the day so maybe that was a good sign.
I tried to interrogate my dad and get some information on how Ashley even got in my house, but he denied everything. As for Ashley, the girls, Finn and I came up with a plan to get back at her. That bitch will never know what hit her.
