5. Chapter Five

Toni threw herself down onto the sofa as soon as she was through the door of her flat. A quiet lunch with had turned into the worst day of her life and she was too exhausted to move, she could barely think straight. 

"You okay?" Toni looked up to see her two flatmates hovering in the kitchen doorway. 

"Great!" Toni sighed heavily, "Just bloody great!" 

They came into the living room and sat down opposite her, "Where you been all afternoon?" Hollie asked gently. 

"Don't ask!" Toni buried her head into the cushion and tried her best to forget about her day. 

"I guess you saw Mikey ?" Amanda smiled softly, "Was it that bad?" 

"Worse Amanda … so much worse!" Toni sat up, realising that her flatmates weren't going anywhere soon, "He's got some nut bag sending him letters and he thinks it's me… well he thought it was me. I was practically arrested and dragged away in handcuffs!" 

Toni realised just how ridiculous it all sounded as her two friends mouths fell open in shock. She was about to try and explain it all more rationally when the phone rang, Toni glared at it. 

"Can you get it. If it's my mother tell her I'm not here." Toni stood up and headed into the kitchen to get herself a strong drink. 

When she came back into the room Amanda was holding the phone with her hand over the mouthpiece, "It's Mikey …" she mouthed at Toni , "…are you here?" 

Toni shook her head. 

"Sorry Mikey , she's not back yet." Amanda lied. 

"Amanda I know she's there." Mikey snapped, he'd had the worst day of his life and the last thing he needed was to play stupid games with Toni 's flatmates, "Put her on." 

Amanda held the phone out to Toni , "He knows you're here!" 

"Well he bloody does now!" Toni glared at her friend as she took the phone from her and walked towards her bedroom. 

She took a deep breath before holding the phone up to her ear, "Hi…"

"Hi…" Mikey sighed, maybe this was going to be harder than he'd thought. 

Toni sat down on her bed in silence, she wasn't about to strike up a casual conversation with the ex boyfriend from hell. If he wanted to talk to her so desperately then he could damn well do the talking. 

"Look Toni I'm sorry." Mikey 's words flew out of his mouth, as if he thought speaking quickly would get the awkward part out of the way quicker. 

"What for?" Toni laughed sarcastically, "Making a bloody idiot out of me in public, getting me arrested or generally ruining my day?" 

"I'm really sorry, I thought, I thought maybe…"

Toni cut him off, "You thought what? That maybe I was some psycho who's out to get you and your family?" 

"No… I…" Mikey took a deep breath and tried to get his head together, "Look I haven't been sleeping, everyone was telling me it must be you, I didn't know what to think and I'm sorry." 

"Whatever…" Toni sighed and sank back onto her bed. 

"I'm so sorry." Mikey tried again. 

"Like I said Mikey , whatever… thanks for calling to apologise." 

"That's it? That's all you have to say? 'Whatever'?" 

"What were you expecting ten Hail Mary's and an Our Father?" Toni rolled her eyes, he was the last person she wanted to be talking to, all she could think about was a nice warm bath and falling asleep. 

"I don't know…" Mikey sighed, "I guess I thought maybe we could talk?" 

"Talk?" Toni laughed bitterly, "Okay then… how was your day? Mine was shite I got dragged down to a police station and had the crap scared out of me… how about you?" 

Mikey realised that this was pointless, she was clearly still furious with him, and he could hardly blame her, "Ok, like I said I'm sorry. I guess I'll see you around." 

"Bye!" she snapped angrily and hung up the phone. 

She let her head sink into her soft, plump pillows, how the hell had this happened? She'd just begun to think that maybe she was getting over Mikey , no longer lying awake all night forcing herself not to call him, no longer crying herself to sleep, no longer seeing reminders of him everywhere, finally moving on… and then all this.
