Better Together ~ Shawn Mendes

Maybe that's the problem with everyone. We give up. To easily. But . . . that's just the thing, isn't it? Giving up is easy. It's easy to walk away. It's easy to not face the problem. It's easy to not fight. It's so damn easy.
And I have the same fault.

"shawn, I love you. And I know you love me. But this was never going to work and I'm sorry that this has to be this way. I love you and I hope you find a way to be happy some day; to find someone who can make you happy. But for now you need to be a father, and a boyfriend, to someone that isn't me." I choke out finally.

18. the truth

I glanced back towards the kitchen where shawn is pacing behind the island counter and having a heated and hushed discussion over the phone. I'm tempted to go over and ask him what's going on, but every time I think I should the conversation gets even more heated and I decide against it.

 

"No! Okay, just do something about it!" shawn shouts - it's not the first time he's had an outburst like that, and I just continue watching my show. Every so often I'll glance back and our eyes might meet but he always looks away seconds after. I feel like I should be worried; but everything just got better and I don't want to feel badly today,I just want to be okay.

 

"Maddy ! I'm serious! It was one time, I can't handle that alright! I'm sorry, but I'm in a really good place right now!" he pauses in the middle of his outburst. Who the hell is Maddy? "No, I haven't. . . I'm sorry, okay! I just don't know what you want me to - beside that!" He stops breathing heavily. "Fine, Maddy. I'll tell her now, but it won't change a thing. I'm not going to do it." he huffs one more time before hanging up. He sighs, running a hand over his face as if he's exhausted with whatever it is that's weighing on him. He walks over sitting down and looking at me. I smile at him - if not a little anxiously - and pause my show.

 

"What's up?" I prompt. He sighs, glancing at me worriedly. Great, now my own worries are coming out.

 

"I need to tell you the truth." Shit. That's never good, cause that means that there was a lie to begin with. "About a ten months after you left the second time, Cam and I went to this party." He winces, as if the memory of whatever it is he's about to say, hurts him. "There was a girl there - Maddy." I raise my eyebrows at the mention of the name he was shouting at mere minutes ago. He stops for a moment, glancing tiredly around before continuing.

 

"We hooked up." he blurts out, his voice strained and frustrated. My vision blurs, but it's not from tears, it's from anger. My fists clench, and my teeth grind as I think over the words that were just spoken.

 

"It was nothing I swear it wasn't Brie." He reaches out to touch my arm but I pull away.

 

"I can't - I cannot do this right now! shawn I swear to God, there better be an explanation!" I yell, my voice rising in pitch. He winces at my angered tone and sighs, resting his elbows on his knees and burying his face in his hands.

 

"We were both drunk, I barely remember it at all, Brie . I was still heartbroken and I just wanted one night where I could try and forget. I didn't think I was ever going to see you again - let alone that you would still love me and we would be here right now!" He exclaims wildly, his hands clenching into fists. I shake my head at his weak explanation and ask the obvious question.

 

"So is that what that phone call was about? What, did she want to - what?! - get together sometime?! What the hell was that about shawn?!" By now I'm shouting, practically outraged that there's actually a girl out there who thinks she can be with shawn! As if there's any reason on the planet that would make me let him go to her!

 

He doesn't say anything, standing up and pacing the living room, practically wearing a path in the carpet. After nearly five minutes of this I explode,

 

"Dammit shawn! Answer me!" He doesn't wait one second, exploding point two seconds after I do:

 

"She's pregnant, alright!!!" He yells so loudly the house seems to shake. Or maybe . . . . maybe that's just me.
