7. 12 through 15

The girl had light blonde hair and was wearing an oversized white T-shirt.  She looked at me clueless.

 

“Who the hell is she?” she asked Jack.

 

Waiting for a response, she gave him a confused glare.

 

Jack looked as if he had no idea who I was, or that he wanted nothing to do with what was going on. His shirt was off and all he actually had on some pajama pants.

 

My hands started gripping on my shirt.

 

“She she's just a-” Jack tripped over his words.

 

“ I'm just a maid” I finished for him. There was nothing else I could think of, she wouldn't believe me if I said we were house mates.

 

“ Yeah, Angel cleans around the house, ” he went with it.

 

“Oh that's cool,” the girl nodded her head.

 

“ I take care of Annabella,” After saying that instantly regretted it.

 

“ Who's Annabella?”

 

My eyes widened with shock. My back started getting hot and I felt like I couldn't breathe.  I felt almost like crying, as if everything I said  had ended the world.
 

“ A dog”  I said.

 

Jack looked as if he was also clueless. I felt as if we were never together at all, and that all of it was a dream. I’m just a stranger in a rock star's house.

 

“I love dogs, where is she?”

 

“She's not here right now, she's at the doctors”

 

“Right....”Jack trailed on.

 

“Speaking of which, I should be...getting ready”

 

“Oh okay it was nice meeting you then,” I said.

 

She kissed Jack and whispered in his ear, “I hope we do this again next time.”

 

The bottom of my heart began to rumble, and I felt as if I just ate some moldy seafood. The thought of Jack kissing someone else made me want to hurl. It could have been anyone else at the party but her.  In fact I didn't even see her here,  she must have showed up last night when I was knocked out.

 

I really didn't want to think about the fact that they were sleeping together.  I was longing to go home, but then I realized I really didn't have one.  I really wished that everything would just blow over, and that I  would never have to speak to Jack after this.

 

I was so embarrassed by last night that I didn’t even want to look at him. I knew we had to talk, but I waited awhile before I walked over to him.

 

“Angel what the hell happened? I thought you were staying over Hayden’s house,” Jack looked as of he was generally concerned, but not in a good way.

 

“I was, but we broke up,” I really didn't feel like speaking about this. I already felt like the whole fight was stupid.

 

Jack could tell because my head was down, and my voice was low.

 

“I'm sorry Jack, but at the party I just wanted to forget about everything. I didn't mean to come out of the blue or anything. I just didn't want to stay over there anymore.”

 

I had to suck it up inside, but I really felt like I was going to cry.

 

“Listen Angel if you're going to stay over here then we need to make this work.”

I could tell Jack didn't know what to say. He wasn’t really ever good with feelings, but this time I felt as if I was talking to a robot.

 

“Can I go to the bathroom?” I excused myself.

 

Jack said with no emotion whatsoever, “Sure.”

 

There was so much tension I had to excuse myself. I began to cry, and I felt even worse than I did before.

 

I should've never said anything about Jeremy. I should've never stayed at Haydens. I should've never talked to Hayden. I should've never visited Jack.

 

“I should've never came back to Baltimore.”

 

Without realizing I said that outloud, Jack replied.

 

“Don't say that. Angel, are you okay?”

 

I slowly got off the toilet and opened the door. My eyes looked red and puffy. I looked like I had just taken twenty naps.

 

Without hesitation, Jack pulled me into a hug.

 

“Well work this out, don't worry.”

 

“I just didn’t know you were serious about staying.”

 

His breath was on my neck, so close he could probably kiss me. I couldn’t talk because I didn’t know what to say. We stayed like this for a while until he pulled away.

 

“I’m free tonight, how about we watch a movie on the couch like old times?” he smiled.

 

“Sounds great.”

 

He revealed his sly smirk, and started to turn on the shower.

 

“Oh and Jack.”

 

“Huh?”

 

“Where is Annabella?”

 

“Oh yeah, Tracy has her for the weekend.”

 

“Oh right,” I smiled.
