What if Skylar never wants to talk to me again? If I never get to talk to her, hear her adorable laugh, see her beautiful smile, look into her irresistibly amazing eyes? What if Nash, Hayes and I stop being friends? I don't know what I would do.
My mind ran through scenarios. Nash walked out of the room with his head down and Cameron was scolding him. What happened? Usually, Cameron is the one to stand up for Nash when someone is scolding and yelling at him. My mind aimlessly wandered back to Skylar. Was Amanda telling the truth when she said that Skylar self-harms and starves herself? Why? She doesn't deserve it. "Matt, Skylar wants to see you." Hayes came out and looked at me. I nodded and walked in the room slowly. I stopped half-way, deciding now on what to say to her.
I noticed her motion for me to sit down next to her. I sat down and felt uncomfortable as she was looking down at her hands in her lap. "Sky, look I am so sorry. I didn't kiss back and I wasn't the one who kissed her. She kissed me. I would never ever do that to you." My voice sounding hoarse and raspy. She didn't respond. After a few minutes, she sighed angrily.
"Matt, I know. Amanda has stolen almost all my boyfriends I had since I moved here." She whispered, unsure of her voice as she looked up. I noticed the hand mark on her face. What the fuck?!
"Sky, who hit you?" I asked and she looked down.
"N-no one. I must have slapped myself in my sleep." I stuttered. What do I tell him? Oh, nothing Matt, just Nash got angry and slapped me. Don't worry about it.
"Sky." He said grimly, making me look at him. "Was it Nash?"
"It's my fault, I made him angry. Please don't say anything. He didn't mean to." I said softly. He tensed and I wrapped my arms around him. "Matt, please let it go." I asked and he softened. I noticed his eyes deepened and his sparkle was replaced with a shallow blackness. "Matt, have you been eating?" I asked and he jerked his head up.
"Yes!" He yelled and I flinched.
"Apparently not enough." I muttered and he looked at me. "Go eat."
"No go eat. Please?" I pouted and he gave in.
What's wrong with me? I just hit Skylar. Cameron was currently scolding me, telling me that I should've known better.
"Cam, I need to go." I stood up and walked to my car. I got in and knew exactly where to go. Kaden's. I need to ease my mind and he has the stuff that absolutely will.
Kaden is, well, an old friend of mine. Skylar told me I should stay away from him, but right now, my mind wasn't even thinking positively. I admit a few years back, I had had a problem with alcohol. Most of my family had given up on me, even my parents, Will, and Hayes. But Skylar stuck by my side the whole time and she was the only reason, I was encouraged to stop drinking.
She was the only person who believed me, but now I know that she won't even consider me as her brother. I arrived shortly and got out, met by a drunk Kaden. He brought me inside and gave me a bottle of vodka. I gulped it down all at once. I'm sorry Skylar. I wish I could take it all back.
~~~~~~~The following day~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Hello?" I answered my phone. I looked to my side and saw Skylar next to me. I smiled to myself. Such a graceful angel.
"Heyyyyyyyyyyy buddyyyyyyyy. Howww youuu doinnnnn?" Nash slurred on the other end. Was he drunk?
"Nash are you ok?" He laughed and I heard a girl's voice in the back calling him. Her voice sounded familiar. Suddenly it came clear. Amanda. "Nash?"
"Holddd onnnn Amandaaaaa. I'mmmm talkingggggg toooooo Matttttttt" He slurred loudly. I gritted my teeth. How could he be with that slut?
"I thought you gave up drinking?" I asked through clenched teeth. I felt a pair of eyes on me. Skylar.
"Matt who are you talking to?" She asked rubbing her eyes.
"Nash." I said and she looked at me with wide eyes.
"H-he's drinking again?" She asked tears filling her eyes.
"Skyyyyyyyyyyyy. Heyyyyyyyyyyyy sisssssss" he said walking through the door with a slutty mess of Amanda. I saw Skylar getting angrily.
"How dare you?! How could you?!" She yelled. "You promised me you would never drink again! And why are you with Amanda after everything she did to me?!" She shrieked. I hugged her and she pushed away.
"Youuuuuuu can't tell me what to do and who I can and can't be with!" He yelled and her face turned red.
"I knew fame changed you!" She yelled back and he slapped her across the face. I jumped up and pushed him back. His eyes widened as he came back.
"Oh my god. S-sky I am so sorry. I didn't know what I was doing. I-I....." He drifted off.
