Gray Skies Out


1. intro

Everything was perfect. Max and I were the perfect couple. We were always happy and I loved spending time with him. Then one day..

"You're the best Max." I whispered as he wrapped me in his warm arms.

"No. You are Avery." He responds and kisses the top of my head gently.

"I love you Avery." He says.

My heart stops. My eyes fill with unknown tears and I find myself pulling out of Max's grip.

"LET ME GO!" I scream at the top of my lungs and take off running through the school fields.

I hear Max chasing after me yelling, "Avery! Avery! What happened! Avery!"

His words keep repeating in my head as I slide down against my neighbors gate. Tears flow from my eyes and I attempt at brushing them away. I let Max go. And he'll probably never want me back. I sit there in tears until my mom comes home from work.

"Avery! Avery! Honey!" She runs over and wraps me in a loving hug.

She wipes tears from my eyes and guides me into the house. After making me a cup of Ginger Tea, she sits down next to me on the couch.

"Avery, sweetie. What happened? Why were you at Ellen's house? And why are you crying?" She says softly, her voice full of concern.

"Actually mom, it's a really long story and I have a super bad headache. I think I'm just going to go up to my room and lay down for a while." I say getting to my feet and kissing her cheek.

"Are you sure? Do you want to talk?" She asks anxiously.

"Maybe later mom. I'm really not feeling too well." I call back to her as tears flow from my eyes again.

I curl up in my warm bed my cup of tea on my nightstand. I open up my phone and I see 100 texts from Max. They're all out of concern. I ignore them and open a text from my friend, Kaylee. She's asking about me too. I turn my phone off and slide deeper under my covers. All i can think about is my dad. How he didn't mean it when he said i love you to me and my mom. Tears streaming from my ocean eyes, I cry myself into a deep sleep.

The next morning, when I wake up, my mom tells me I don't have to go to school. So, I sleep in until noon. Then, I put on a comfy pair of sweatpants and walk to the local Wawa. I get a smoothie and a bag of chips as my lunch. As I walk home, Max's mom drives by me. She smiles at me sadly and as she rolls down her window I run across the street, hoping I won't get hit by a car.

I speed home, crying. I hadn't brushed my hair that morning and I knew I looked pathetic. When I got home, mom was already back at work. I took my food upstairs and laid back in bed. This repeated for about 8 days.
