54. Feeling Good (Carly Rose Soneclar)
"Baby wake up" I say to Harry
"It's still dark, Katy. What are you doing awake? Why you changed your clothes?"
"Harry you said you were going to drive me to the ring"
"Oh yeah right. What time is it?"
"Oh! It's too early..."
"Okay I'm up baby"
I smile and kiss him.
"What time did you wake up?" He asks getting in the bathroom
"At five. I had breakfast and got ready"
"What time your practice is over?"
"And your school starts at..."
"Okay so my class begin at 8:30 so I can drive you to school" he says opening the door
"That would be amazing" I kiss him
"You know you are a really special girl, right? If you weren't really special I would not wake up at 5:30"
"I know. I love you." I say and I whisper" and I will thank you in a very special way"
"You are such a tease. It will be hard to control myself when you are sleeping by my side and teasing me like that" he says and kiss my neck
"No" I stop him" We need to go"
He groans and follows me.
"Bye" I say to Harry getting out of his car. I walk to school
"Hey you" Caren says "I see your boyfriend driving you here. So cute"
"Yes, he is an amazing boyfriend"
"Who would guess Harry would be an amazing boyfriend?"
"Yeah people are not like they seems"
"You are the living example"
"Yes. But it's a nice thing "
"Well you are not that quite, good girl. You started showing the best part of yourself"
"I need to talk to you" Mandy appears from...from where?!?
"Good morning for you too" Caren says ironic
"Katy" Mandy says
"Okay we talk later" I say to Caren
"What have happen to you?"
"What do you mean?"
"Your mother called me yesterday freaking out because she woke up and you weren't there. She though I knew where you were but I didn't because you don't talk to me anymore! And what happened to your phone?"
"My mom was calling me so I turn it off"
"And what the hell were you doing at Harry's?! You spend the night there?!?!?"
"Yes. I was there. I don't want to come home. My father hurt me. I don't feel like I could live there"
"What you are saying? You are going to live with him?"
"I don't know and I don't want to think about it now. I just want to live the moment"
"Live the moment?! Who the hell are you?"
"You've been acting weird lately! And this is not just because of yesterday. Ever since you've met Harry you've been weird. You are not the same Katy. You weren't a Harry's girl but you are becoming one. He is changing you, and you are letting him do it!!!"
"Harry is not changing me!"
"Oh please Katy, you know are not the same!!!"
"Oh maybe I'm tired of playing the perfect girl. Being the best student, the good daughter it's tiring. With Harry I feel better, I feel alive"
"This is bullshit"
"It's not bullshit. You are just jealous"
"Yeah, you've always been. I have many friends, I party with them, everyone knows me and I have an amazing boyfriend. What about you?!"
"What about me?! Oh please I...you know what?! I don't have to explain myself to you!! I don't have even to talk to you anymore. It's clear that you don't need me since you have many friends and Harry!" She says and walks away
I realize that the class had already began. I was so busy talking to Mandy that I didn't realize it. I look at the empty corridor. I'm ten minutes late.
"Hey" someone says
I look, it's Caroline
"Well You can say that"
"Me too! Steve is waiting for me outside, we are going to have breakfast at the bakery. You want to come with us?"
"Uhm... I have already had breakfast"
"Oh you can eat again. You are so thin!" She says laughing
"I...I don't want to spoil your date with Steve..."
"No problem! Thomas is coming too! It's not a date"
"I don't want to miss another class..."
"We are coming back before the end of this class"
"Okay then. Let's go"
Who says I need Mandy?! I have new friends now
" I'm going to be late to work" I say on the phone while I walk out of the class early
"Why baby?" Harry asks
"I have to take some stuffs at my house"
"Okay. See you soon"
I hang up the phone and open the front door of my house. I know for sure that my dad is at work right now, so I won't see him.
As I walk through the living room, when I'm about to go upstairs I hear my mom
I turn back. She runs and hugs me. I freeze.
"I'm not coming back mom"
"What?" she lets me go and I watch her smile fades
"I'm not coming back here. I just need to take some things"
"But... Where are you going to stay?"
"You can't stay there"
"Of course I can"
"Katy I know you are hurt but you have to understand that he loves you"
"Does he?! Because it didn't look like when he hit me!!"
"Katy I'm so sorry"
"No mom, you are not the one who have to apologize"
She starts crying
"Don't cry. You can always visit me"
"But you don't even pick up my phone calls!!"
"Sorry for that. I was just confused. I love Harry and I thought you would make me broke up with him"
" Oh sweetie I just want you to be happy, but I do want you to come back. You are still my daughter" she says and hugs me "I love you"
"I love you too. Now I have to run. I'm late for work"
She kisses me and I go to my room and pack some clothes, makeup and other stuffs...
"So how was your day baby?" Harry asks as we finish dinner
"Well it was nice, although I had fought with Mandy"
"She doesn't like the way I'm acting lately. And she doesn't like you"
"But she is just jealous"
"She likes me?!!?"
"No! She is jealous because I have many friends and a boyfriend and she doesn't"
"Oh. I hope you two work things out"
"I don't know if I want to" I say sitting on the sofa
"Well, you two are friends since childhood. Don't let this end. This can be just a phase"
"Maybe, but I don't want to think about this now"
He nods and sits on the sofa We watch tv and then go to bed.
Speeding the day with Harry is so nice. I could live like this. I could live with him.
