16. Chapter 15
I feel my cheeks flush a deep, rosy pink. I wasn't embarrassed or anything like that. I was mad. My hands balled into fists as i stared at him.
This boy, the one i feel so much for, tricked me. Made me feel something for him even though he knew that i'd end up broken.
“How long've you known?” I ask him quietly through gritted teeth. If he says what i think he will...
“Since the night of the motel.” He says quietly, almost ashamed as Liz looks at us as if we'd just sprouted tails.
Well i can stay here and humour his pathetic lies. He told me that the man in the cafe was nothing, and it wasn't anything big. That was his first mistake, and he's made so many after that. I just wish that he hadn't told me he liked me. Hadn't made me fall for him, but obviously he couldn't resist hurting me.
I grab my purse and my coat of the counter and fish my car keys out of the pockets. I can't stay here and pretend to be exited about something i'm dreading. Something that opened a big, gaping hole in my chest.
I hurt. I hurt bad, but he doesn't need to see it. And even if he did see me an emotional wreck, would he care?
I slink out the door and into my dads car before Luke or Liz can get a word in. I didn't expect Luke to follow me, and he didn't.
What did that say about us?
