5. Girl's Talk

Charlie's POV

 

Watching the boys walk off to find firewood, I took a seat opposite the designated fire pit from Amber and her two minions.

 

"So you and Luke, huh?" Amber implied mockingly.

 

"I don't know what you're talking about." I stated sincerely.

 

"Right well, you and Luke can't happen." She flatly ordered.

 

I was clearly taken aback, which became apparent to Amber so she continued,

 

"I have a problem with the way Luke looks at you." She accused.

 

"Then I suggest you take that up with him." I advised.

 

With that, Amber rose slowly from where she sat and made her way closer and closer with every word,

 

"Luke does this every time we go through a rough patch. He finds some insecure, desperate girl and makes them feel special for a week or until we get back together. But keep in mind, he ALWAYS comes back to me. He's learned by now that I'm better than any freak, rebound he finds. And that's all you are or ever will be to him, remember that." 

 

By the end of her speech, tears burned down my cheeks and my face was hot with anger.

 

"Awe, its crying." Was the last thing I heard before I got up and ran toward the parking lot.

 

By the time I reached Luke's parked car, the reality of Amber's words, sunk in.

 

How could a guy as perfect as Luke, end up with me?

She's right. I am nothing.
