Madison's POV: Tuesday
I pulled out my class timetable from my skirt pocket, I had SLR (Sports, Lifestyle, and Recreation) I had it with Lexie YAY :D And Carman UGH D: great!
I said goodbye to Tahlia and then walked towards the Gymnasium lockers thinking of ways I could tell Lexie that I was moving to Australia, but I couldn't think of anything.
When I arrived at the gym I entered and walked to a spare locker to store my clothes and bag in it. "OH MY GOD, Hey!" Lexie screamed as she pulled me in for a hug.
"Oh, hey Lexie. What's up?" I asked as I was putting my sports clothes on while listening to Lexie talk be about the argument she had gotten into with her mum. Until I felt someone tap on my shoulder. I spun around and was standing right in front of Carman and two of her friends. "You know what I've realised?" She asked.
I stood there trying to think of something to say. "That your pregnancy test came out positive?" I asked with a smirk on my face. Lexie stood behind me laughing her head off as Carman stood in front with her mouth wide open.
"No, bitch. I've thought about something and I'm sure everyone surrounding you would agree as well I've come to realise that people would actually start to care about you if you just left and never come back, but then again I could be wrong, nobody cares about you now, but I guess they wouldn't if you left" she answered.
I stood there with no emotion whatsoever, what she said didn't hurt, although I still didn't need to put up with her stupid opinions. I leant up against the locker as I realised that Lexie must've caught the emotions I should've felt instead.
I could tell she was getting pissed off, her fists her clenched into a ball and her eyes were glared at Carman.
"What the fuck is wrong with you, how could you say that to her, you just have no idea don't you, no idea whatsoever, because you're too busy hanging out at guys houses begging them for sex, hahaha what a skank ass hoe! What right do you have to consistently have the need to always put Madison down, unless you haven't realised Maddie is the most amazing and most beautiful girl I have ever met, and I wouldn't replace her for anyone, and I'm pretty sure the only reason, why you do this to her, is because you're just simply jealous that she's got everything you don't. So shut the fuck up and leave her alone a bit yeah. Next time you come up and talk to her you better hope you've got something to say or back the fuck up and turn the other way, got it?" Lexie yelled.
I stood there completely speechless, l didn't know what to do or say, I had never seen Lexie lash out like this, unless she was actually pissed off, and it was obvious that Carman and reached that level. Carman took a little step towards Lexie. "Or what?" Carman whispered.
One of Lexie's cousins, Matt hit the side of the locker to get our attention. "You're so game Carman, I wouldn't mess with her, she does martial arts," Matt said.
"Then let's see how you good you're at it then," Carman said as she another step towards Mia. "Take a swing Carman It'll be your loss in the end," Matt said.
Carman shrugged her shoulders and went to slap Lexie in the face, but didn't make it far as she had caught the hand that was so close to hitting her.
Carman's eyes widened and was spun around as Lexie twists her arm behind her back and pushed her in the other direction away from us."Owch, you bitch don't touch me" Carman yelled.
"Yeah, that's what I thought, don't mess with Madison you whore, otherwise you'd have to go through me, by the way, you almost hit me first, so don't tell me not to touch you" Lexie yelled back
My mouth dropped, she wasn't allowed to use martial arts on anyone unless it was 100% necessary. "I thought you weren't allowed to use that on other people?" I asked her.
"Well I'm not exactly meant to but I wasn't just gonna stand there and let her hit me then get away with it so let's just say it was self-defence, and the bitch had to learn" she answered as we walked into the gymnasium arena.
"Okay everybody, today we're going to be playing basketball, but before do start I want all of you to do 2 laps around the oval whether it's running, jogging or just walking, but please walk at a fast pace because we don't want to be waiting for you, and one last thing DO NOT CUT CORNERS to make it go quicker or I will make you do it again, do I make myself clear, it's for a quick warm up?" Mrs Barker said and we all nodded.
"Okay great, now everybody go get your drink bottles and hats and start heading out to the oval." She said and we all walked off.
Lexie and I were half way through our first lap and I had to tell Lexie that I was moving to Australia, but I didn't know how to tell her "Is everything okay, you're not still shook up a bit about what happened in the lockers right? If so just don't worry about them, they're nothing but jealous freaks who aren't happy with their own lives so they have to destroy other people's lives, promise me you'll forget about it, please" Lexie said.
I looked up at her face almost in tears. She was by far much taller than me so I had look up because I was so short. "It's not that," I said trying to hold them in.
"It's just, what you did for me back there was honestly something I couldn't have handled myself, you're so strong and brave and you don't take shit from nobody no matter who it is, but you always speak your mind and you never regret what you had said no matter how bad it was, I am so grateful that I have you in my life and, and"
By that time I was full of tears how am I going to leave her I just can't do this "And what?" she said
"And I don't know if I'm going to be able to cope when I leave the country," I said trying to make myself understandable through my little sobs.
"When you leave the country? What do you mean when you leave the country?" She questioned.
When we got to the end and was just about to walk the last lap Mrs Barker stopped us when she noticed me crying "Is everything okay" She asked.
"I think she just needs to wash her face and have some time away from all the people, do you mind if I take her to the bathroom," Lexie asked.
"Of course take your time" She answered.
Lexie and I began to walk towards the bathroom and I was still in tears, I never wanted to leave her, but I did want to experience a better life.
"So explain to me what your were talking about just before," Lexie said.
I went and sat down on a seat so I could explain easily.
"Okay so this morning, mum called both Tahlia and I downstairs so she could talk to us about something, she sat us down at the table with dad and told us that they've opened up a vet business over in Australia, and so they've both obviously decided to move over there to run it and to be closer to family. I think it's a brilliant idea because I get to start a new life and forget about all the bad things that have happened over here in England but I also have to leave all the good things that have happened to me since I've been here, and that is you, I have to leave you, and that's gonna be the hard bit. I'm going to be 15,160Km away from you and which means to calculate it into time it'd be about 25h & 10m away as well, (Yes I did research that xD) and I can't possibly do that after everything you have done for me, all the memories we have created, all those drunken parties we've gone to, getting detentions for the littlest yet worst things, the fights with Carman, our skateboard sessions, our shopping spree's, our sleepovers, sneaking out of home, I could go on and on, but I'm not gonna, but now that I think of it I don't think I even want to move to Australia, not without you anyway" I explained.
I looked up at Lexie and she was in tears which brought me to tears as well more then I was before. I pulled her into a hug and started mumbling things on my shoulder.
"I can't believe you're leaving me, you're my best friend, the bestest one I've ever had, I'm going to miss you so much Madison" Lexie said as she pulled away and wiped the tears from her eyes.
I saw Jordan walking past us, and he noticed us. He came over with a worried look.
"Are you two okay?" He asked. "Yeah, we're fine, I was just told that you were moving to Australia," Lexie said sounding like she had a blocked nose.
"Aw shit! I knew that it'll affect you both when the time had come, I know how close you two are but everything is going to be okay, you've still got Facebook and FaceTime and all that so you two would still have some form of communication, I mean it still not be the same when you have each other's proper company but it's better the nothing right?" Jordan said and he sat in between us and put his arms around both out shoulders and pulling us closer.
"Did you know about this beforehand?" I asked, Jordan frowned then signed. "Yes Madison, but mum and dad wanted to keep a secret and tell you when they thought was the right time if that makes sense? That's why they were in Australia for two weeks, last month (November) because they had recently had a house built there and they had to inspect it and move all the furniture in and obviously check out their new jobs and meet all the co-workers" he explained.
"Yeah, understandable I guess but it's just not gonna be the same like you said?" I said back. Jordan stood up.
"Yeah well I had to break up with Chelsea today, because I knew that her being here and me being there, it wasn't going to work out, so we had to call it quits. Well I gotta go back to class see you at home Madison, and I'll talk to you about it more then and Lexie I may see you in the holidays when you're hanging out with Madison or something" Jordan said, then waved and walked back to class.
I was somewhat angry at Jordan for not telling me before, but if it was for my own sake then they kept it a secret for a good cause. It would've been better to tell me now then a month ago, because all the emotions would've just built up more and more as the days passed and I would've probably ended up in a Psychiatric hospital.
*Skip to after school*
When I got home I quickly run to the bathroom and had a shower remembering that I didn't have one last night or this morning, I tried to stay in there for as long as I could till my fingertips started to shrivel up. Long showers were good for me, it helped me think through things and made me feel so much better.
After my shower, I got changed into some black sweats and my white Santa Cruz shirt and run downstairs to talk to my kind, and understandable mother who listens and acknowledges everything I say.
I loved talking to her about things because she is always there to give advice when someone really needed it and I know that she would never judge or get angry no matter what it was.
I was talking to her about the time I told Lexie that we were moving to Australia and that it didn't end well, due to almost flooding the school with our tears.
When dinner was served I didn't talk as much as I normally did and my family understood why.
After dinner, I went upstairs to my room and searched my drawers for my earphone and hooked them up to my crappy phone and l fell asleep listening to Green Day.
