"Um...I..." What was I supposed to say? Fudge muffins! Why couldn't I think up a good lie?
"Em, we've been worried sick. GIVE US A DAMN EXPLANATION!" Kate roared, grinding her teeth together furiously.
I take a deep breath. Fuck this. I was gonna wing it. "Ok. So, I washed up on the shore, and it was dark, so I grabbed my things and went home. I sorta kinda had a breakdown when I got here and.... left. Stayed at a hotel for a few days." It had been a few days, right?
"Emily, a month is not a few days!" Nita said, anger bubbling up in her face. One month? I had been gone that long?
"Well What!?" They exploded in unison.
"WELL MAYBE IF YOU GUYS HAD'NT JUST LEFT ME IN THE OCEAN TO DIE I WOULD"NT HAVE FUDGING LEFT!" I roar the words, and shut them up. You cant judge me for being mad; my sister might have done the same thing, but these guys were supposed to be my best friends.
"Em..." Nita says, shoulders sagging.
"It's just.... I thought you guys would've looked for me, is all. I'm sorry for blowing up like that." I sigh.
"BITCH WHAT? DON'T TRY TO FUCKING APOLOGIZE WHEN WE WERE WORRIED TO THE BONE AND MAKE US THE BAD GUYS!" Nita screamed at me, "YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU AREN"T THE PERSON I THOUGHT YOU WERE. YOU'RE NOTHING BUT A COLD HEARTED-"
"WHO WILL NEVER FIT IN IN THE WORLD!"
Oh hell no. I don't think this bitch knew who she was messing with. Suddenly, they weren't my two best friends. They were my problems in the world, my enemies, and I would take them down.
"I WONT FIT IN IN THE WORLD? NITA, YOU GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKER, JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE TALKING TO? I KNOW I WILL NEVER FIT IN IN THE WORLD. I HAVE FUCKING EMBRACED IT. BUT YOU, THE TRUE ASSHOLIC BITCH HAVEN'T, SO STOP FUCKING BLAMING YOUR SHITTY PROBLEMS AND INSECURITIES ON ME. DO YOU KNOW HOW IT FELT, WAKING UP WITH NO ONE THERE IN THE DARK? WALKING HOME AND YOUR FAMILY YELLING AT YOU? KNOWING YOUR BEST FRIENDS DIDN'T CARE?" They look shocked, but I continue, "SO SHUT YOUR GODDAMN UGLY FUCKING MOUTH UP AND TAKE KATE AND GET OUT OF MY MOTHERFUCKING HOUSE!"
When they don't say or do anything, I push them out of the door and slam it in their faces, then started crying. What had I just done?
Warm, solid arms went around me, and I felt my sister hugging me. When my tears slowed, I pulled back and she smiled, wiping them away. "Look,sis, you might hate me, but I still love you. You're my little sister, after all. And I'm sorry for the other night. We all.... we all should have handled that better. It was on all of us." She got up, dusted off her pants, and helped me up. "So, mom and dad are at work right now, which means we have some free time. And, I heard you yelling with your friends. So..."
She leads me into the kitchen, and pulls out a plastic tub that reads Cake Batter Ice Cream. My favorite.
My sister smiles, takes down two bowls and a scooper, and says, "So. You want some Ice cream or not?"
When I don't answer, she says, "We can add a movie to the mix. Maybe even some candy."
I smile. She knew just how to make me feel better.
Yeah, I know this chapter was short, but a lot went on and I wanted to not pack the chapters with a million things. Also, if y'all want a character, comment and give me 1) their name, 2)their job in the story, and 3) their personality. I will give you credit!!!!
thanks for reading my loves!!!!
