14. Catch-22

Nothing After Midnight

You’re a Catch-22

A/N: Hey guys! So, I’m in love with Catch-22; I THINK IT’S MY FAVORITE SONG AT THE MOMENT IT’S SO GOOD! Anyway, here we go! Sorry for the last chapter being so short.

Krista’s POV

After I hang up, I stare at my periwinkle walls for a few moments.

How could he? Why would he? I think angrily. He said he loved me! Does the word love mean nothing to him?

I pick up my phone, searching up the pictures that were taken of Mikey and the girl. She was very pretty, with long blonde hair and big, green eyes.

I bet he told her that he loved her too. I think bitterly.

That’s when thick, hot tears collect in my eyes and roll down my cheeks. Am I not good enough?

My phone rings after a little while, and I pick it up.

“Hey…” Eva says sympathetically. “How are you?” I sigh, my breath rigid.

“Horrible.” I answer truthfully, to which Eva responds, “The Fam will arrive soon. Have snacks ready and prepare Nika for my affection.” I let out a laugh-sob. Eva loved cats.

Eva, Ava Deanto, Natalie, and Ava Johnson arrive twenty minutes later; Eva was in a cat onesie, Ava Deanto, who we call Avocado, was in a unicorn onesie, Natalie was in a Pikachu onesie, and Ava Johnson, who we just call Ava, in a onesie covered in books. As soon as Eva spots Nika, she runs to her, petting her and cooing at her. Natalie promptly says, “Boys suck.”, and Avocado nods in agreement. Ava settles herself on my couch, snacking on some popcorn.

After everyone sits down, my mom offers us some freshly-baked cookies, which were amazing. She leaves us to talk after that.

“So, what did he do exactly?” Ava asks, and I retell the story, of how Alyssa told me what happened, of me calling him, what he said, and that I broke up with him.

“Well, at least you called it off.” Avocado comments. I sigh.

“Well not really… I mean, I was planning on going to see them in the summer, but since he did what he did…”

“I just can’t believe he would do that. He said he loved you, he didn’t seem like that kind of person…” Natalie says disappointedly.

“He did say he was sorry though…” Eva thinks out loud. Avocado looks outraged.

“That doesn’t make it right!” She proclaims.

“Of course not!” I quickly say, calming Avocado down. “But still, he did… he said the girl-“

She-devil!” Natalie corrects me.

“He said that she took him…” I continue.

“He had tons of security around him, though! He would have needed to tell them he was going…” Ava adds.

“Let’s stop talking about it, guys.” I interrupt, feeling very uncomfortable.

All of my friends look at me and nod.

For the next few hours, we play board games and watch Attack on Titan.

After the fam leaves, I go onto Twitter. I casually tweet:

Just watched Attack on Titan for the afternoon. Now I will watch Harry Potter.

Immediately, a flow of tweets bombards my phone. They read:

Guess you're unwanted. That other girl Mikey is with this soooo much prettier than you.

He's done with you.

Go away, you and Mikey are over. You're out of a job now, I guess.

OH NO! HOW WILL U PAY UR RENT NOW? Bitch.

Tears escape my eyes. I tweet back:

How can you people live with yourselves? Making other people feel bad to make you feel good is sick.

I then curl up with Nika and sob, knowing I was just the other girl.

•••

Wasted, I play the same party where I'm chasing, your sick little heart

Until I'm jaded, and lying on the floor

Faded, I'm wrapped in your arms while you're waiting, to tear me apart

With a last kiss, you leave me wanting more

You, you're a catch-22

Win or lose I'm screwed

I'm trapped under your spell it, saves me, breaks me,

Until I fall back to you, you're a catch-22

Restless, I stay awake with the spaces

Thoughts of our hands interlacing,

Is taking over me

Reckless, I'm at your front door and I'm helpless,

I'm twisted back up in the madness, repeating history

Promise me you'll never let me leave

You, you're a catch-22

Win or lose I'm screwed

I'm trapped under you spell it, saves me, breaks me,

Until I fall back to you, you're a catch-22

Damned if I do, damned if I don't

Let me go,

I'm better off alone, and here we go again

You, you're a catch-22

Win or lose I'm screwed,

I'm trapped under your spell it, saves me, breaks me,

Until I fall back to you, you're a catch-22

You're a catch-22

Win or lose I'm screwed,

I'm trapped under your spell it, saves me, breaks me,

Until i fall back to you,

You're a catch-22

I look at the camera, smiling a fake smile.

"That's an original song I wrote. I hoped you like it. It's an expression of my current feelings. Bai fam!'

A/N: okay! This is before 5sos wrote catch-22. I hope you all liked it! Bai!
