5. Day by Day
As the rest of the week goes by I triede and pretend nothing else is wrong ,everything is how it usual is. Adam isn't trying to get me back,I don't got a guy trying repeatedly getting me to talk, and that I am not having random moments of pure rage. Now this is hard because Ash constantly comes up to me and talks and that fact we seat next to each other in two classes and that Adam will text me once a day saying how much he misses me and to give him a chance. Finally ,Friday comes after three long days.
I started to walk home from school when I heard " Lacey wait for me!" I stop and groaned. I completely forgot Ash and I are working on something together in science. I looked at him once he was next to me and he said " Are you ready to talk!" I shook my head no with annoyance. He just been anticipating this moment all week. Although I don't see the big deal because no one would believe him after all ,he knew me for like two weeks now. HE should know I haven't talk since a year because of everyone saying all the rumors about me.I stopped talking in eleventh grade in December when the incident happen.
Our walk to my house was filled with him talking about Ideas and getting off topic. Every once in a while he will try and say something and start to stutter just a little than leave it at that. When we reached my house He was excited I suppose to hear me talk.I open my door and stopped us both just so I could wait and see if my brother would pop his head up to see that it was me home. After a minute of him not showing up I let us both walk through. I pointed my pointer finger up saying one second. I went into the kitchen and grabbed some chips, candy, and a couple of pops. I walked back to the living room where he was and signal for him to follow me. I lead him to my room.
I got in set down the food and closed the door behind Ash. I then looked at him who had a smirk on his face then said to him actually talking " I am only talking about the project and nothing else got that!" His smirked kind of disappeared , but quickly reappeared as he said " I got it." I sat down on my floor with him and got out my papers and stuff to write with leaving my backpack open. " So what should our topic be about" He asked. I then gave a blank stare as I thought and said " IF we could change one thing in the world it would be how others treat each other." He shook his head and said " That is a good idea that we can work on."
For the next hour we started to write out the paper in the basic format. After we did all the was required today. I then got up and told him " I'll be back don't work on anything else until I'm back." I went to the bathroom and quickly splash my face to get my self more awake.I dried my face off then headed back to my room to see Ash holding my journal from my backpack. He was holding it with a smirk while looking at me. " Give that back!" I said. It's not like i wrote secrets in there but I just don't want him to know anything about me like that. " Not unless you answer some of my question!" I went to reach for it , but missed and then almost scream " NO!" He then opened it up and started to read off the date. " Fine what do you want to know." I said angrily. He then said " Why don't you talk?"
" I don't talk because when you talk to someone you connect to them more and bring them in. I just don't want to bring anyone in. I been hurt too much by many people in the past and can't take anymore. Believe it or not I actually looked different from this," I pointed to my self," Now is that the only question?" He shook his head and said " Can you make an exception to someone?" I lifted and eyebrow and said " Who?" He walked a little closer to me and said " For me." I then said " I don't know ....It would depend on if you are going to hurt me." He then said " Maybe that chance of getting hurt is worth it though." He handed me back my journal and said "Think about it and I'll see you Monday." He then walked out my door leaving me speechless.
