“Are you sure you’re actually going to do this?” Alaina asked me.
“Yes I’m sure,” I replied as I put on my converse sneakers.
It’s later in the morning and I’m about to go to Kendall’s to break up with her. I’m just fed up with everything that she’s done to Alaina. I also couldn’t take how rude, clingy, and demanding she was towards me and my family. I tried to let it go thinking it would all go away and everything will turn out fine but sadly I was wrong, it just got worse so now I finally have to put my foot down. I don’t know how Kendall is going to take it I just want to get this off my chest so I don’t have to deal with her anymore. I have to admit, I do like Kendall but I just can’t be with her anymore. She was not only rude, all she wanted to do was have sex and I’m getting tired of it. I’m tired of just having sex with her. I tried to suggest other things for us to do like go out to the mall, see a movie, or go out for lunch/dinner but she never wanted to. All she wanted was to get in bed with me. If she wants to just have sex then she should find some other guy to mess around with, not me. I’m done!
“Harry, I’m serious you don’t have to do this. Kendall may be a stuck up bitch but maybe she’s just insecure and is not used to her boyfriend being close with another girl,” she exclaimed as she follows me downstairs.
“She’s not even close to being insecure,” I laughed once we got to the foyer. “She’s just jealous of you because she knows that I have feelings for you but she doesn’t want to admit it,”
“But you really like her though,”
I sigh and turn around and look at her. I’m really thankful that my best friend doesn’t want me to break up with Kendall but I have to do this. I’m tired of being Kendall’s sex toy and I’m tired of her being rude to Alaina for no reason. None of the girlfriends I had in the past were jealous of her so I don’t know why Kendall is. Even though I love Alaina but Kendall still didn’t need to be jealous because I’m not the kind of guy that would cheat. Well…I kind of did when we first got together but that was before we became official.
“Not as much as I like you,” I said.
I notice her blush after I said that and I feel my heart start to pound rapidly in my chest. I wish she knew how much I loved her but I’m still not ready to tell her that…. yet.
“Stop,” she chuckled.
“I mean it. I have more feelings for you than I do for her. I thought I did but I was wrong. I know I don’t want to break up with her either but I have to. I’m fed up with how she treated me, my family, and especially you and I can’t keep letting that happen,”
“Okay. Be careful,” Alaina said.
“I will. I’ll be back after,”
She nods and then without thinking I gently put my hands on her cheeks and lean in to kiss her forehead softly and then walk out the front door to my car. I text Kendall to let her know that I’m coming over but she doesn’t text back so I pull out of Alaina’s driveway and begin driving. While I drive I begin to think of what to say to her when I get to her house but I don’t know if it’s going to hurt her feelings. That’s the one thing I’m afraid of when it comes to me breaking up with a girl; hurting her feelings. Like seeing the girl cry when I tell her that we should break up hurts me inside and I literally change my mind about it because I don’t want to leave them heart broken.
I’m very sensitive about girls, especially about their feelings. If I make a girl cry I immediately feel guilty and I don’t know what to do. I guess after living with my mum and sister for so many years it gave me a soft spot on girls. I should have a backbone when it comes to breaking up with girls but I can’t help it. Seeing them cry just gets me upset and I would literally try everything to make them feel better. I’ve been there a few times when I broke up with a few of my girlfriends in the past and I don’t want to do that again if Kendall gets upset after I break up with her.
Hopefully she doesn’t so I don’t feel bad and continue to stay with her. I just want this to be a simple, normal breakup. No tears, no fighting. I want it to be quick and easy so I can go home afterwards. I sigh and pull into the long driveway leading to Kendall’s big ass house. I take a few deep breaths, get out of the car and make my way up the sidewalk, leading up to the front door. Before I even had the chance to knock, the door opens and Kendall pulls me inside.
“Harry Bear! I missed you so much,” she said, holding me tight.
“Please…don’t call me that,” I said.
“Shut up. You love it,” she teased. “So…my mom is not home. We can go up to my room and we can…you know,”
I look down and she has her hands around the rim of my jeans, making me realize that she once again wants to have sex. I sigh and gently grab her wrists, pulling them off my jeans.
“I didn’t come here to have sex with you,” I said.
“Then why did you come over then?” she asked.
I let go of her wrists and take a few deep breaths. Okay here it goes.
“Because…. I’m breaking up with you,”
She giggles and loosely wraps her arms around my neck, pulling me into her.
“Come on, be serious,”
Suddenly, she scoffs and frowns at me before unwrapping her arms from my neck and backs away from me a little.
“What? You’re breaking up with me?”
“Yes,” I replied.
“Why? What did I do?”
I sigh and roll my eyes. What did she do? She knows what she did but she’s obviously trying to play the victim so I can stay with her but sorry Kendall but I’m not buying it this time.
“Well first off I’m tired of how you boss me around and how rude you are to my mum,” I explained. “Not only that, I heard your phone call with Alaina earlier this morning,”
She frowns again, pretending to not know what I’m talking about.
“What are you talking about? I never talked to her on the phone,” she lied.
“Yes you did! I heard it and I also saw the message you sent her on Facebook,”
I notice a small smirk on her face but I can tell she’s trying to hide it. Why is she lying to me?
I give her a look. I’m really getting tired of her right now. I just want to tell her I’m done and walk out but I keep my cool and try to stay calm.
“Stop lying to me!” I exclaimed.
She sighs with frustration and rolls her eyes.
“Fine, you caught me. I talked to her and sent her a message on Facebook. What’s the big deal?”
“What’s the big deal? What you said was rude! What did she ever do to you?” I said. “I thought you told me that you were going to get along with her,”
“Well she was being rude to me too so I was giving her a taste of her own medicine!” she replied.
I sigh again and roll my eyes.
“We both know you started this! Alaina never did anything to you and yet you’re still rude to her. What did she do?”
"She didn't do anything," she exclaimed. "I hate her because she’s annoying and so obsessed with you!”
“How is she annoying?”
“She follows you around like a lost puppy. She’s needy, oh and she’s such a fucking baby! Like I never get to have you to myself because she always wants you to be with just her and not me! Like in Biology class and at lunch,”
I feel anger begin to build up inside me. Alaina has never tried to keep me to herself because Kendall is always trying to keep me away from her. Ever since I started dating her, I barely even spent time with my best friend all thanks to Kendall.
“I barely even spent time with her ever since you came along because you were always keeping me away from her!” I replied, raising my voice a little. “The reason why she wants to spend with me is because she’s my best friend and that’s what we always did together. We’ve been doing it since we were little and I guess she just missed being with me and to be honest, I missed being with her too!”
“OH MY GOD! You’re always with her!” she shouted.
“What are you talking about?” I shouted back. I never raised my voice at a girl before because they never gotten me this mad like Kendall. “I was barely with her because I was always with you! I used to sit with her in the classes we have together, at lunch, and hang out with her after school but now I can’t anymore all thanks to you!”
“If you wanted to sit with her so bad then why didn’t you?” she asked.
“Oh my god! Because you always kept dragging me away from her!” I exclaimed. “Kendall, she’s my best friend. I told you that millions of times. If you want to stay together then you need to respect her and the relationship I have with her!”
“Whoa! WHAT? What relationship?” she gasped. “So that’s it…you’re breaking up with me to be with Alaina. Or are you two already together but were fucking each other behind my back?”
“Kendall, really?” I sighed.
She lets out another frustrated sigh and shakes her head.
“Well, if you rather be with your annoying best friend then fine. I’m done!”
“Good! Because I’m done too!” I said.
“Fine!” she said and goes up the stairs.
“Fine,” I replied.
“FINE!” she screamed and slams her door.
Shit. Someone needs to take a chill pill. But I’m glad I got that off my chest. I take a few deep breaths and calm myself down and then I make my way out the door. I can’t believe this. I broke up with my girlfriend. I have to admit I actually did like her but at the same time I’m glad I ended things with her. I was tired of her attitude and the way she treated me and how rude she was to people that I care about. It takes me about 15 minutes to get back to Alaina’s house. I walk inside and find her sitting in the living room watching The Vampire Diaries again. Ugh, her and that show but I have to admit that I don’t mind because if the girl I love likes some show with vampires then I’ll respect that. I take one look at her sitting on the couch in just her sports bra and sweatpants with her hair tied up in a messy bun. God, she’s so beautiful. I manage to relax and make my way into the living room, sitting beside her on the couch.
“Hey,” she said.
“Hey,” I replied, taking my shoes off and putting my feet up on the coffee table like hers.
“How did it go?” she asked.
“Terrible. We argued of course but I’m glad it’s over. I was tired of her anyway,”
She sighs and puts her arms around my side, hugging me close to her. Man, I love when she does that because I can smell her velvet sugar perfume that she got for her birthday and she feels so warm and comfortable.
“I’m sorry, Harry,”
“But…you really liked her though,” she said.
“Yeah but I would rather be single than date someone who disrespects my best friend,” I replied.
She fixes her position on the couch and lies down on her back, putting her feet into my lap and putting her arm over her eyes.
“I don’t get it,” she whispered.
“Don’t get what?” I asked while massaging her foot.
“I don’t get why she hated me so much. I never did anything to her,”
“I guess she was just jealous but she didn’t want to admit it,” I said.
She nods agreeing with me and then turns off The Vampire Diaries so we can watch something else. After a few hours, I had to go home because my mum needed me to clean my room or else I’ll be in trouble. I tell Alaina goodbye before saying goodbye to Katie and Shane. Then, I make my way outside to my car and get in. I take one look back at her house and sigh. I wish I asked Alaina to be my girlfriend today but I just wanted to wait a little while. I want to wait until I get over my break up with Kendall before I decide to move on. I begin to start my car and drive home but then my phone starts to ring. I pick it up, expecting to be my mum looking for me but it was an unknown number but I decide to answer it because it has the New Jersey area code. It’s probably someone I know from school that has my number and wanted to ask me a question about something.
“Hello?” I asked.
“Styles,” went the unfamiliar voice.
“Who is this?” I asked.
“It’s Josh Evans, you dumbass!” he scoffed.
I roll my eyes. How did this asshole get my number? He probably found it on Alaina’s phone. I bet he went through it while she was in the bathroom or something, saved my number in his phone just so he can call me when he wants to bitch and complain.
“Sorry. I would have known if I had your number,” I replied. “Thankfully I don’t because I wouldn’t bother talking to you,”
“You’re so pathetic, Styles,” he laughed. “But anyways do you know why I called you?”
“No I don’t…why?”
“I’m calling to tell you that I’m suing you and putting you on a restraining order for beating me up last night,”
What? He’s suing me just because I stood up for my best friend when he was trying to hurt her? What the hell? He’s the one that deserves to get sued. He tried to hurt me and my best friend. But obviously he’s playing the victim because he thinks he can get whatever he wants since he’s rich.
“You’re fucking kidding me right?”
“No I’m not kidding. My lawyer just mailed you a report today and it’s on its way,” he said with a hint of smirk in his voice.
“Now you really crossed the line, Evans. You not only tried to hurt me and my best friend that I truly care about, you’re trying to play the victim because you think you can get whatever the fuck you want! But let me tell you this, just because you have money doesn’t mean shit!”
He laughs and I hear him shift in his chair that he’s probably sitting in.
“It actually does. My father is the great-great grandson of Henry Ford and he's the new owner of the company so obviously I will get away with it,”
“Alaina and I have bruises to prove that you started it so don’t get your hopes up because you’re going to lose,”
“We’ll see about that!” he laughed. “See you in court, Styles,”
The line goes dead and I hang up, throwing my phone onto the front seat. I can’t believe this. I’m getting in trouble for standing up for myself and for my best friend. This is so unfair!
Sorry for the short, filler chapter. I promise I'll try to make the next chapter longer. Please review if you liked it :)
