It’s been a few days and the day after the “accident” Harry has been texting me nonstop asking me if I was okay, did I get hurt, and if I wanted him to come over. To answer his questions, yes I was okay, yes I wanted him to come over, and yes I got hurt. No not from the accident, I got hurt by him for blowing me off just to go watch a movie with “precious” Kendall at her fucking mansion. I’ve never been so mad at him in my entire life. We’ve gotten mad at each other before from stupid arguments but we would end up saying sorry to each other a million times a second after we stopped talking and then we would forget about it. But this is different than our pointless arguments.
He actually hurt my feelings by blowing me off like that when he said that he’d wait for me. If he didn’t blow me off I wouldn’t have had to walk home in the freezing cold and pouring rain and go to the hospital after almost getting hit by a car. Harry has never ditched me to be with someone else before. He’s never done this to anyone. I just can’t believe he did this to me, his best friend since he was a born. Like why did he have to do this to me? Why? I just don’t understand. I hope he knows how much he hurt me that day and feels guilty about it but if he doesn’t I’ll probably be really mad at him. More than I ever have been before.
The day after the accident, I didn’t go to school because 1. I didn’t want to see Harry and 2. I just wasn’t in the mood in the mood to go. I was surprised my mom let me stay home for the past two days because she never usually lets me play hooky. I guess she felt bad for me so maybe that’s why she let me stay home. Literally, the whole time I was just laying in bed playing on my phone while trying to ignore Harry’s repetitive text messages asking me if I’m coming to school and if I’m okay. I wanted to text him back but I couldn’t. I want him to know how much he hurt me but it seems like he’s not realizing it. He usually knows right away how I’m feeling, he’s like my mind reader so I don’t understand how he hasn’t realized that I’m mad at him. Maybe he knows I’m mad but he wants me to forgive him. If that’s what he’s trying to do then it’s going to take a while.
When I woke up this morning, I was relieved that today is finally Friday and I once again don’t have to go to school today since it’s teacher’s in service day and the students have off. I literally almost forgot that I’m supposed to hang out with Becky, Lauren, Bailey…. and Kendall today but thankfully Becky texted me while I was eating breakfast to remind me. I really don’t want to go because I obviously don’t want to see Kendall’s face and I don’t want my best friends to only pay attention to her. But at the same time I actually want to go because I haven’t spent time with Lauren, Becky, and Bailey in a while and I think it would be nice to have a girls day.
I would be a little bit more excited to hang with them if Kendall wasn’t going to be there with us but since she’s their new “best friend” they have to invite her. Like do they not care that she doesn’t like me? Well it’s obvious that they don’t care because if they did then they would of stopped hanging out with her. I have such great friends. Sarcasm. Usually when a new girl comes to our school and becomes popular my friends ignore them, they don’t obsess over them and follow them around like lost puppy dogs. They just leave them alone and let them party and hang out with the other trashy people in our school. Don’t know why they don’t do the same to Kendall. I think they like her just because she’s rich, popular, and pretty.
If it’s true then that’s just ridiculous and stupid. My friends should be smarter than that. After I finished breakfast, I went back upstairs and decide to get ready since I have nothing better to do. Harry stopped texting me so maybe I’ll actually have a good day without stressing over him texting me nonstop. I take a nice long shower and then I go into my bedroom to look for an outfit but I can’t find anything decent to wear. I obviously don’t have good clothes like Kendall does. It’s obvious that she doesn’t get her clothes from American Eagle, Hollister, and Abercrombie & Fitch. She probably doesn’t even go shopping for her clothes at the mall. I bet she shops online and buys whatever the fuck she wants from Gucci or Forever XXI with her credit cards. When it felt like forever I put on a top and a pair of black leggings from American Eagle and start doing my hair and makeup.
Once that was done, I put on my Ugg boots along with my coat and walk out the door. Before walking to my car, I look around my front yard just to make sure my uncle isn’t around watching me so he can kill me. Once I came home the day after the accident, I was kind of worried that he was going to figure out how to break in but I managed to calm myself down after a few days. I sigh a little and begin walking to my car. I text Becky to let her know I’m on my way to her house and then I start driving. The ice on the roads is pretty much melted now but there’s still some snow on the ground but it’s beginning to melt too.
The rain from the other day melted some of it and the rest of it is slowly melting on it’s own. I just can’t wait until it’s warm out again. I can’t stand the wintertime. I love it when it’s spring or summer because the weather is a lot nicer that it is in the winter. I arrive at Becky’s around 11:30 and I try to keep my cool before going inside because before I got of my car, I was planning on slapping Kendall across the face for making my best friend ditch me but I knew that wouldn’t be nice so I managed to calm myself down. I knock on the door and I was hoping Becky was going to answer the door but my hopes soon faded when I saw that Kendall opened it instead.
“Eww what you doing here?” she snarled.
“I was invited,” I replied. “You have a problem with that?”
She rolls her eyes and lets me in. Becky comes running in from the kitchen giving me a hug and shuts the door.
“Yay! You’re here!” she said happily and turns to look at Kendall. “Kendall, you know Alaina right?”
“Um yeah. She’s in my Bio class with Harry and I. We’re like the 3 Musketeers in that class, right Alaina?” Kendall sneered.
I roll my eyes. Yes she’s in Bio class and no we’re not like the 3 Musketeers, we’re more like enemies. She’s just lying to Becky because she obviously doesn’t want to cause any problems.
“Oh that’s so nice. See Alaina, I told you that she doesn’t hate you,” Becky exclaimed with a smile still plastered on her face. “Come on! Bailey and Lauren are in the basement waiting for us. We’re about to watch a movie. Kendall and I were up here to see if I had any other movies since we don’t have that many downstairs,”
“Did you guys find one?” I asked.
“Yeah we’re going to watch Insidious,” she replied. “Come on lets go!”
“We’ll be right down, I have to talk to Alaina privately,” Kendall said before looking at me with her evil eyes.
“Okay. You two have fun,” Becky said and goes downstairs.
Why Becky why? Why did you have to leave me alone with her? Ugh I love her like a sister but sometimes she’s so dumb and gullible. Just as the basement door shut, Kendall looks over at me and stares at my shirt from American Eagle.
“Nice shirt,” she said.
“Thanks?” I replied.
“That wasn’t a compliment,” she snarled.
My god she’s such a bitch. I just want to slap her pretty little face but I know it’s just going to cause more trouble so I manage to stay calm.
“Okay, Kendall. What do you want?” I asked.
“How long have you known Harry?” she asked.
“Since birth. Why?” I asked, frowning with confusion.
“Just wondering because you always follow him around like you’re a lost puppy. Like doesn’t that annoy him when you’re all up in his business 24/7?” she exclaimed.
“No because like I said…. he’s my best friend and we do everything together. Why do you care?”
“Because I don’t want you around him anymore that’s what,” she replied.
What the hell? She wants me to stay away from Harry, my best friend? Okay now she’s getting me mad. Who does she think she is telling me to stay away from my best friend since birth? I’ve known him longer than her so she doesn’t have the right to tell me what to do.
“Why?” I asked.
“Come on Alaina,” she snarled rolling her eyes. “I know you’re in love with him. The whole junior class at McKinley knows,”
I feel my heart pound in my chest. How does she know that I’m in love with him? I never tell anyone about my private life except for Harry, Anne, and my mother. Can she like read my mind or something? If she can then that’s pretty creepy.
“How do you know?”
“I just know my facts,” she smirked. “Harry is mine now honey. You had your chance but not anymore. If you don’t want to have problems between us, then stay away from him,”
“No. I don’t care what you say. He’s my best friend so I’ll be around him whether you like it or not,”
“Fine. Don’t say I didn’t warn you though,” she sneered and goes down the basement leaving me all alone in the front hallway.
I can’t believe her. She barely even knows me and she’s telling me to stay away from my best friend just because she’s supposedly going out with him. To be honest, I don’t give a fuck about what she said. I’m going to keep being with Harry whether she likes it or not and I don’t care what she tells me. She can’t stop me from doing anything. After I calmed down, I go downstairs and decide to join the girls. Just as I sat down on one of the chairs, Becky plays the movie. A few times I notice Kendall giving me evil glares and I just wanted to go over to her and give her a piece of my mind but at the same time I didn’t want to because I didn’t want my best friends to hate me. I just can’t wait when they realize that she’s a fake bitch and stop hanging out with her because I’m getting tired of her being near my friends and I.
I barely know her and she already wants to start problems with me. I don’t even know what I did to her to make her hate me. I never said one word to her and she still despises me. Ugh I can’t wait until this bitch leaves us alone. I manage to sit through the rest of the movie and then after that Kendall had to go home because her sister Kylie was coming home from her rich ass boarding school the weekend so she wanted to spend time with her. I was relieved once she left. Now I can have some peace and spend time with my friends without wanting to slap her fake ass face. While we clean up the basement, we start making other plans to go shopping next weekend and thankfully Kendall isn’t going to come with us because she’s going out of town.
But I know we won’t be free from her though. Becky is probably going to video chat or text her while we’re shopping and ask her for her opinions on her new outfits since Kendall is fucking fashion expert. Sigh. I sound like a bitch right now for not liking my friends being around her but I can’t help it. It’s just so unfair how they don’t notice that Kendall hates my guts for no reason. I mean they’re my best friends and they’re supposed to be on my side, not hers. After we finished cleaning up we go upstairs and Becky goes to order Chinese food since we’re starving. When the food came we go up to her room and talk while we eat our food.
Now that Kendall isn’t with us at the moment, I’m actually having fun for once. No one mentioned Kendall once. All we did was talk about stupid things and laugh over Becky’s stories about her English teacher. -He’s a weird, lonely middle-aged man and he’s the most hated teacher in the school but he doesn’t seem to realize it. - He gave her a detention on Thursday just for accidentally slamming her binder on her desk after he told them to take out their homework so he can collect it. She got out of it after going to the principal and the teacher got really mad that he accidentally spilt the principal’s coffee all over his desk. We all laughed so hard after Becky told us the story and it was so hard to keep eating because all we would do was keep laughing. This is what our usual hangouts used to be like: eating food while telling funny stories. Now it’s usually all about Kendall.
Thankfully it wasn’t today. When we finished our food, we throw our trash away downstairs and then it was time for us to go since Becky’s parents are on their way home and she wasn’t supposed to have people over. I arrive home before my mom got home so I have to be careful going inside because my uncle could be in the bushes waiting for me. Ever since he got kicked out of my house he could have been stalking me all this time so I have to be cautious. Thankfully he wasn’t around so I’m safe. I sigh with relief and go inside, locking the door behind me. Even though the locks around the whole house are changed he can still break in through the window from the living room, basement, kitchen, or one of the bedrooms. I manage to check around the house and everything in the house is still fine. I know I shouldn’t be worrying but who knows what could happen?
I go upstairs after checking everything out in the house and begin to get ready for bed. I don’t need to make up anything for Monday so I’m free to do anything for the rest of the night. I change into comfortable clothing and get into bed before putting my phone on the charger. Just as I turned the TV on, I hear my phone vibrate on my nightstand. Sigh. I swear if that is Harry trying to text me again, I’m going to be mad. When I pick up my phone off the nightstand, I notice that I didn’t get a text message. I got an email from someone. I look at with confusion but decide to read it and see who it’s from instead of deleting it. It could be some ad that might be interesting.
Haven’t seen you in a while. Hope you’re well. Just to let you know if you tell anyone else about me touching you, you will regret it big time. I have my men watching you so better keep your pretty little mouth shut or you’ll be sorry. Have a good week.
My heart pounded out of my chest. What the hell? How did he know my email? Well he is pretty smart and sneaky so he probably snooped through my computer or phone without me knowing so I guess that’s how he got it. But why did he sign it from Jamie though? Not Uncle Jamie? Well it doesn’t really bother me any way because he’s not even close to being an uncle to me. And what did he mean by having a good week? Is he like going to kidnap and attack me or something? Nah what am I thinking? He was probably just being friendly which is weird because he was never friendly. I have to admit that I’m really scared but at the same time I know that I shouldn’t worry. I know that every thing is going to be okay. Right?
The weekend flew by fast and before I knew it, it was time to go back to school. I managed to get myself out of bed, shower, and get myself dressed without slacking off and I actually feel accomplished. When I went downstairs to get breakfast, my mom was already down there cutting up some apples at the counter. Strange she should be at work right now.
“Morning Mom,” I said as I go to the pantry to get a cereal bar.
“Morning Lovebug,” she smiled.
“Why aren’t you at work?” I asked.
“I don’t have to be there until 9 today. I’m starting to change my schedule a little so I can have more time to spend time with you,”
“That’s nice,” I smiled and sit down at the counter to eat my cereal bar.
“I’m going to drive you to school today if that’s okay as well,”
“Yeah that’s fine,”
I open up the wrapper of my cereal bar and just as I took my first bite, I feel my phone vibrate in my pocket. I hope it’s not another email from my uncle. I take it out of my pocket and my heart pounds in my chest when I notice that Harry texted me.
Hey you need a ride to school?
No thanks. My mom is driving me
Okay. See you at school xx.
Okay he doesn’t know that I’m mad at him. I literally have the stupidest best friend in the whole world. He usually knows when I’m mad at him so I don’t know how he doesn’t realize him right now. I sigh and put my phone away and wait until my mom is ready to go. She finally was by 6:30 and she drops me off at my school by 7. Usually we hit traffic when she drives me to school but not today. Weird. She tells me to have a good day and then I get out of the car, going inside the school.
I walk down the hallway to my locker and I say hi to a few people that I knew from class and keep walking. Homeroom doesn’t start until 7:30 so I have time to see Becky, Lauren, and Bailey. The warning bell rings just as I make it to my locker but I ignore it. I’ve been doing that ever since the middle of my freshman year. I open my locker and start putting the stuff I need in there and the books I do need into my backpack. While I was doing that, I feel someone poke my sides but it doesn’t startle me because I know that’s obviously Harry since he does that to me all the time. I try to pretend to act busy by reading a chapter from To Kill a Mockingbird that we’re reading in English but he doesn’t go away, he just continues to stand there.
“Hey Alaina!” he said with a hint of smile in his voice.
I ignore him and pretend to keep reading. Why isn’t he realizing that I’m mad at him? I love him but he can be so stupid sometimes.
“Hey! Lainey!” he exclaimed a little louder. “Hello?”
I sigh and shut my book before putting it back in my locker. Still not getting the memo huh, Harry?
“Okay. I guess you’re mad at me again. All right…. what did I do this time?” he asked while leaning back against the lockers next to me.
“Seriously Harry?” I snapped, turning to look at him.
He frowns with confusion.
“No. What’s wrong? Tell me,”
“What's wrong? I'll tell you what's wrong! YOU ditched me on Wednesday after school just to be with Kendall when you promised you would wait for me and I had to walk home in the rain and almost got hit by a car! What do you think Harry?” I exclaimed.
“Oh yeah. That. I was trying to ask you all day and you never responded. Are you okay?” he asked.
“Oh, now you care. Nice,” I said with sarcasm.
“What? I do care. I always cared,” he exclaimed.
“You didn’t seem to care about me on Wednesday when you ditched me!” I shouted.
A few people in the hallway turn to look at me with weird looks but I ignore them.
“Alaina. I’m sorry. Okay. I shouldn’t have done that. Kendall asked me to come over in Spanish class and I seemed to of forgotten about it when I got to last period. She literally reminded me right as you went to Mrs. Kent’s room after Bio,” Harry said.
“So I’m guessing seeing a movie with Kendall is more important than me, huh?” I asked.
“What? No. You know that’s not true, Alaina,” he said.
“It seems like she was. Because if she wasn’t you wouldn’t of left with her, leaving me behind,” I snapped.
“Alaina I’m sorry! Just let me-“
“Just leave me alone, Harry,” I said.
I shut my locker and put my backpack over my shoulder, making my way to my homeroom. Harry calls my name telling me to come back but I ignore him and keep walking. Even though I ignored him all weekend, I still think I should stay away from him for a while just until I get over this. It’s probably not going to take that long for me to get over it but I’m still pretty mad. Maybe by the middle of the school day I’ll probably feel better, apologize to Harry, and let him explain. But right now I should focus on school and getting through the morning.
Thanks for reading. Please review. Do you think Alaina will forgive Harry?
