29. Mugs In Millions Of Pieces, But Not My Heart.

June 15, 2011


Claudia's POV


It was 10:38 on a cold Aussie winter night. This was by far the coldest winter I've been in. 

I made myself hot chocolate with 3 marshmallows, and sat on the porch chair to take in some fresh air, my house smelled like ash from the fire.



I miss him. I miss him so much. We barely talk, and Mike, Cal and Luke said that they see him, but not as often, but they are not bugged by it like I am. I have had a constant ache and pull in my heart since the day at the park.

I let a few tears slip, then was ashamed because I was facing my whole neighborhood. I quickly wiped them away with my black fuzzy blanket and set it on my lap. I looked into my empty mug and held it in my hands because it was still warm, and set my head back and closed my eyes.


The soft breeze, the cars softly humming in the distance, crickets.

There was a sudden interruption when I heard a door slam. My head snapped up and saw Scarlett banging her fists on the front door of Ashton's house.

He was standing at the window that he used to wave bye to me before I crossed home when we were little after we got home from school.

He was pointing to her car as if he was telling her to get in and drive away. 

Just seeing her do this angered me so bad and knowing Anne and the kids were at her cousins house made me worried because Ash was alone with this problem.

I was not going to sit here frustrated and just watch my best friend be yelled at, so I kicked off my blanket and marched across the street.

"What the fuck are you doing?"

"Mind your own business bitch!"

"Ashton is my business, and I want to know why the fuck you are banging on his door when he is clearly telling you to fuck off! Baby, he don't want you! He don't need you!" I sassed.

"You cheated on me! You literally answered a call from your other boyfriend in front of me!" Ashton fought from inside.

"I didn't mean to! You were never supposed to know about him!"

I was fuming. "Excuse me! You cheated on him! That's way low, way fucking low and pathetic Scarlett Jones. Your a bitch. I can't believe you cheated, then didn't even care enough to let him know who he was!"

"Well, why should I care? I never loved him, how could I? He just buys me stuff, I didn't even have to get in bed with him!"

I broke. 

After almost a year of holding back, I let out a punch.

I stretched back, and nailed her in the nose with my right fist. She swung her arms around and fell on the lawn.

Ashton stood wide eyed in the window.

I threw my mug aside and jumped on top of her and she tried to push me off, I was a pretty small girl, not very muscular, but Scarlett couldn't even lift a chair if her life depended on it, so this was easy.

I grabbed her hands and pinned them to the sides of her head, and began yelling at her.

"Who the fuck do you think you are?! Going around using people, especially Ashton and using them to get stuff while cheating on them! Then when he dumps your lying ass and you say the guy on the phone was not your boyfriend after what you said on the phone to him, stated he clearly was?! Then he kicks your sorry fake butt out, and you yell at him, practically break down the door, and threaten him so he can let you in?! After that! Do you have no brain! No heart! Leave Ashton alone, he deserves much, much better than you! Pathetic! He is such a special and kind hearted boy, and you throw him around, and throw him away like this! Get lost! If I ever see you on this street again, your in for it!" I jumped up off her and she scurried up, wiggling on her stilettos.

She desperately got in her car and Ashton stepped out.

"Wait-" He began. "Ash, no. Stop. She's no good."

"I never got in my word."

I smiled in approval and he stood at her car window and she rolled it down.

"Oh, Ashy! Did you see what that freak did to me! She attacked me and-"

"Shut up. You are a heartless rat, you never gave me any thank you's after all I did. And your a cheater. I tried every thing to make you happy. I was happy without you, and I don't need you. We are over, never call again. I don't ever wanna see you face again. Leave. Now."


"That's it!" I ran for her and she sped away before I could get my hands on her.

I chased her down the drive way and when she reached the street I ran to the end of the lawn and picked up my mug I dropped on the grass when I pinned her, and threw it at her. 

The mug made a loud crash and smashed into millions of pieces on the road behind her car, and I heard her squeal and speed down the road.

I watched her tail lights fade into the distance, only to see a cop car turn into the road, and find her speeding. The sirens started and I watched as the noise faded and the lights were no longer visible.


I turned around to a smiling Ashton.

Smiling? He just went through a breakup?

"Ash? Are you okay? Do you wanna talk?"

"I'm great! Scarlett is gone! I've been trying to break up with her forever, and this just was the thing I needed! I don't even care she cheated! I never really loved her, I just thought it was cool a pretty girl liked me, or so I thought. We never got serious so." 

I could tell when he was lying, and I knew this was the truth, Ash would never react like this if he felt the relationship was true.

I jumped on him and gave him the biggest hug. I was so glad to have my best friend back.

"Claudia, thank you so much for all that, you have no idea how happy I am."

"Happy that I broke her face?"

"Yes." We both laughed and we walked inside his house.

We spent the rest of the night talking shit about Scarlett Jones, it was so great.

I soon fell asleep and had my first peaceful, nightmare- free sleep in the past 3 months, because I was safe in his arms, and knew every thing would be alright now Scarlett's gone.


But I knew, deep deep down, every thing happens for a reason, and every thing is not always what it seems.



A/N- I mixed up names and called Scarlett Savannah, so if you see Savannah that's my fault, but her name is Scarlett Jones, and she is not a real person -
