As I sit there talking to mom, I see something out of the corner of my eye.
Turning to look, I see Bailey from school.
She was Miss Popular and thought everyone else should always listen to her. She was a game player and a downright revenge seeker if you got in her way.
Today, she was wearing a short, short pink shirt, with a skin tight top.
Her heels and all made her look like a stripper.
Then, I looked at who was beside her and there he was, Cody.
My eyes widened as they kissed and then started making out.
I almost dropped my drink and my mouth dropped!
Hoping that mom was distracted to where she couldn't see the shock that was very evident on my face, I continued to stare at them.
I was telling Skyla something and we had started talking. As I was telling her about Niall, I looked up to see her staring out of the window, mouth agape, and eyes wide.
Looking closely, I seen tears welling up in her eyes and I followed her stare.
Outside, not even a block away, was Cody, and apparently he was making out with another girl.
My own jaw dropped and I looked back at her.
A tear slipped from her eyes as her eyes were wide.
"Skyla, lets go." I say touching her hand softly.
She got up angrily, without looking at me. "Yeah, let's go." She said through gritted teeth.
She was ten steps ahead of me and by the time I was out the door, she was stomping up to him.
"Oh no." I say as my phone rings.
I answer it immediately.
"Hello?" I ask.
"Hey babe, where are you?" Niall's voice was all too familiar.
"Niall." I say shocked.
It takes me a few seconds but I finally speak.
"We're at the café in town." I say
"I'll be right there." He says.
"No Niall---" Click!
He hung up!
"Perfect." I say starting towards them.
I stomp up to him and shove him back.
"YOU JERK!" I shout as he looks taken aback.
"S-Skyla." He stutters.
"What? I wasn't watching so you decided to make out with her?" I ask pointing to Bailey.
She smirks her evil smirk at me and I glare at her as tears run down my face.
"Save it!" I snap. "I can't believe that I honestly believed in you, in us. No wonder you moved here from Tennessee, they didn't want you."
I start to walk away when he grabs my arm.
"Get your filthy paws off of me!" I glare at him.
"I don't want you near me, my friends, or my family. And if you ever try to talk to me again, I'll take your head off!" I say pointing my finger in his face.
I walk away very angry at him and my mom meets me halfway, but then, daddy pulls up.
He looks at my tear-stained face and gets out immediately.
"What happened?" He asks running up to me and mom.
"Niall, not here." Mom says her voice soft, but warning in her eyes along with concern.
He looks from me to mom and I run to the car.
"What happened Tessa?" He asks me as Skyla runs away.
"Niall, not here." I say. "Let me get her home first."
He's concerned, worried and curious.
Walking away to the car, I get into the driver's seat and head home with Skyla crying in the passenger seat.
It hurt, it hurt so bad having to be so silent on the way back.
How I couldn't touch her because I was driving... I was her mother for pete's sake! I needed to comfort her!
Once I parked in the driveway, she sprinted into the house before I could say a word.
I sighed, getting out and facing Niall.
"What happened Tessa?" He asks.
Looking into Niall's eyes, I tell him nothing but the truth.
"Cody cheated on Skyla." I say.
His eyes widen and his muscles tense.
"Where is he? Right now?" He asks.
"Niall," I say placing my hands on his shoulders. "no."
"Tessa, I am going to----"
"No, you're not. You're going to leave him alone and stay out of jail. It's over between them, Skyla made that perfectly clear to him. Please, think before you act." I say looking into his eyes.
He breathes a few deep breaths. "Where is she?"
"Probably in her room, but she needs time babe." I say.
He looks into my eyes concerned. "I knew he was no good."
"Sometimes we have to learn lessons the hard way and we don't always see what should be right in front of us." I say.
That was the truth and he knew it too.
As much as I hated it for her, I knew that this would make her stronger... I knew it would...
