Riiing riiing riiing!!!! The bell rings, and everybody rushes out of their classrooms and to their lockers. Finally!! Thank goodness it’s Friday, it feels like it has been forever!! I pack up my binder and put everything into my backpack. I wait for my girlfriends to come meet me at my locker. Right before they come, I get about 15 buzzes in a row, all coming from my phone! I reach for my phone in my side pocket, and I see that I got 20 txts already. I look over at them and they are all party invites, hang outs and sleepovers! My gosh! I’m gonna be pretty busy this weekend.
When my friends come meet at my locker, they all asked if I wanted to hang out with them. Then a couple of boys come, and soon there is a crowd. I usually love to hang out and stuff, but today I’m just not feeling it. So I tell them that I have an appointment today. They start asking me questions like…”What’s wrong? or “Are you okay”? “Shoot”, I think to myself. What “appointment” do I have….? Oh right… “I have an ear appointment,” I tell them.
“Oh...okay, well...good luck. I hope everything goes fine”,” they say. I say thanks and leave.
I reach home after walking 5 miles. I’m so exhausted, you don’t even know. I drop my backpack on the ground, and about to flop on my bed, when my mom calls me to the kitchen. “Hi honey, how was school?” she asks.
“Fine….I guess…”, I say
“Learn anything new?”
“Ya….I guess. Mom I’m gonna go do my homework...So ya, I’ll be in my room”.
“Alright sweetie.” I walk back to my room and flop onto my bed. I close my eyes for literally 5 seconds, when I hear a buzz coming from my backpack.
“Ugh seriously…?”, I say. I stand up and take my phone out. 18 new messages. Guess what….everybody knows about my “ear appointment” now. Wow, when you’re popular, word gets around really fast.
I hear a knock on the front door, and my mom gets it. “Honey! James is here!”
“Okay mom I’ll be right there”. But right when I stand up to go to the door, James is standing there looking at me. “Hey babe what’s going on?” I ask. Obviously, James is my boyfriend. James is the kind of guy who is perfect. Sensitive, hot, kind and smart. God I love him. He walk into my room and sits on my bed, and I join him. I lean in for a kiss, but he stops me. (Gosh, that’s embarrassing).“What’s wrong?” I ask. He looks at me for a second, and I see tears well up in his eyes. My heart starts racing. Is he going to break up with me?!!??
“Kate...I don’t think we should be together anymore…I mean….I don’t think we are right for each other”. I pause. I can’t believe this is happening! We are the best couple in high school! We were voted prom King and Queen! I can’t believe this is happening!!!
“Are you seeing someone else??? Is there someone else??” I inquire, impatiently, almost yelling.
“Well….” he says.
“OH MY GOSH! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! YOU’RE SUCH A JERK! I HATE YOU! I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU EVER AGAIN!!!! GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!” He looks at me in shock.
“I’m sorry, Kate! I never meant anything of this to happen!”
“GET OUT, GET OUT!!!!” I say. James stands up and walks out. I am officially in tears. I flop on my bed and squish my head into the pillow. I burst into tears, bawling my eyes out.
My mom comes in my room, and says, “Honey, are you all right? I heard a lot of screaming and shouting!”
“No, mom! James just broke up with me!” My mom started patting me, and saying comforting words to me.
