"I wanna do something big for her.. She has been my girlfriend for three years.. I should do something big for her" you exclaim, thinking about what to do. You just have to show her what she means to you. You have to. You need to. You want to. "You don't have to bro.. She knows what you're feeling for her. "I wanna do something for her.. She has to know.. I wanna take her somewhere we can be just the two of us and my bodyguard, but you know" you say. "Okay do that.. You need some time off.. But wait till after Christmas... I think she wanna celebrate Christmas with her family and you and your family or something" he smiles. "Okay so what am gonna do?" you ask.
"So who's coming Christmas Eve?" your mom asked. "Um.. You, me, Pattie, Justin, grandma, grandpa, Jeremy, Jazmyn, Jaxon, Bruce, Diane and all of those people" you say. You're so excited about celebrating Christmas Eve with Justin and his family. The hopefully next year it'll be at his house.
"Okay.. Alfredo isn't coming? And Destiny? And those people?" your mom asked as she wrote down the names you just said. You shook your head, "nope.. Destiny is going to Australia to celebrate Christmas with her dad.. And Alfredo is going to Boston, celebrating Christmas with family.." "Okay then.. What about Scooter and Yael?" she asks. You think for a moment, "don't know.. But they're gonna celebrate together with their newborn baby.. So I don't know.. I don't know.. Justin is off the 22nd in stead of the 23rd.. And so is Scooter I guess.. I can call Justin and ask." "Do that" she smiles, "by the way.. How's thing going between you two?" "They're fine.. He hurt me again but I gave him another chance.. The last one I swear to god.. I don't wanna get hurt all the time.. He doesn't know why he does it.. It's apparently frustrating him, that he can't treat me right" you tell her, "I don't feel like I do anything.. I don't know if I do, but it's all him who is the one to cheat on me or whatever he might do.. It's frustrating.. If it once had been me, it wouldn't be that bad you know.. Like if he wasn't the only one... If I just did it once or something it wouldn't be that bad I think... That doesn't mean I'm gonna cheat on him because I know how much it hurts.. I know he doesn't mean to do it.. I wanna leave but I can't.. I'm stuck in this wonderful, crazy, stupid love of ours.."
"I'm always there for you" your mom smiles, "and I just want you to know that I wanna help you.. I can help you forget him.. Like I did with your dad.. He kept hitting me also.. I had to end it.. I'll help you sweetie.." You smile, "thanks but I don't think that's necessary.." She smiles, "I know.." You hug her and then you both continue planning Christmas Eve.
Your phone's ringing, when you see it's Justin you just let it ring. You don't wanna talk to him. It's gonna be one of those deep conversations anyway, you think.
Then when it has been ringing several times you pick it up.
"Hey what's up?" you say.
"It's an emergency.. I tripped down some stairs and now have a broken leg" he says.
"Justin" you sigh, "I bet you didn't even trip down the stairs.. You just thought it might be fun if I tried rolling down the stairs.. Because it can give you that boost you're looking for right?"
"Come on really? I'm sorry... I'm perfectly good when I'm with you.. I'm perfect when I'm with you.. I don't make any mistakes I hope.. It's without you I'm fucked" he says, "but I did broke my leg and I just wanted you to know so you won't freak out when you see I have a broken leg."
"Okay well um thanks" you smile, "by the way is Scooter coming Christmas Eve?"
"I don't think so.. I think he has plans with Yael and their families" he says.
"Okay well then are your dad and your siblings coming?" you ask.
"Yeah" he answers.
"And your grandpa, grandma and mom?" you add.
"Yeah" he says, "well I have to go the doctor's here."
"Okay good luck with your leg" you smile.
"Thanks.. I love you remember that" he says and you can feel his smile.
"Love you too" you smile and hang up.
"Mom!" you call, "Scooter and Yael aren't coming.. And Justin has broken his leg." "Oh dear god.. Why?" she exclaims. "I don't really know.. He says he tripped down the stairs but" you shrug.
