11. The Healings of a Broken Heart: 010

Saphire's POV:

I groaned and ducked my head, ready to pound it onto the ledge until I became senseless enough to just disappear from all of this. But, then I got a better idea; instead of embarrassing myself in front of Odd like this, it would just be better to hide. First though it'd be nice to teach the person who thought it was funny to call him up a lesson.

I stalked back to the kitchen where Andrew was now enjoying a hand made sandwich. I ignored the stares I was getting and marched over to him, grabbing him by the collar of his shirt. Thanks to the heels of my combat boots, I was given a few extra inches than Andrew had and his feet hung slightly off the floor.

"You!" I growled.

"Whoa, whoa, Saphire, what up?" he had his hands up in the air next to me. "Why this sudden closeness? I mean, even my girlfriend wasn't this close with me."

"I'll tell you what's up!" I tightened my grip on the hold. "You told that Lover Boy Anthony I was here, didn't you?!"

"I-I-it might have slipped out when I was talking to him on the phone yesterday," his eyes were wide and he looked genuinely scared. I guess my new look was good for something. The doorbell rang then and I saw Andrew smirk. "And there's the man himself."

"You wouldn't dare." I said through my teeth.

"Try me," Andrew looked past my shoulder and smiled even wider. "Oh, Aliyah, dear, will you get the door, I think we're expecting a guest!"

I pushed Andrew back and tried to run to my room, when Andrew grabbed my arm back and held onto me.

"Stop it!" I yelled. "Let go of me!"

"Never! Aliyah - door, now!"

I struggled against his tight grip on my arm, flinging my free arm around, trying to hit him desperately in the face so he'd let go.

"No, Aliyah, please!" I yelled to her desperately. "You have no idea what you're doing! Letting him into this house will only bring more drama!"

Aliyah looked lost between Andrew and I as did both Aelita and Odd, but that was only because they didn't know who it was that was on the other side of the door.

"Aliyah, don't listen to her!" Andrew wrapped both his arms around my waist then and I gasped, jumping in the air at the sudden movement.

Aliyah groaned. "Ok, this is just ridiculous," she walked over to the door and got ready to open it. "I mean, you two are seriously acting as if it's some serial killer or something."

"But-!" I tried once again to either get Aliyah to not open the door or to get Andrew off of me.

"Well, let's at least see who the hell it is and then we can move on and figure this all out together."

"But, that's just it!" I wanted to scream out, but kept my mouth shut. I didn't want to do this together! I didn't want to do this at all!

But, it was too late, because Aliyah unlocked and opened the door and I caught the familiar face of Anthony Garcia. The boy who's had a crush on me since I could remember.

"Hey, Anthony buddy, look who's here!" Andrew called to him.

Aliyah's face turned from understanding to remorseful then, but it was too late, because he had already seen me; the damage was already done.

"Saphire?" he asked tentatively, walking into the house.

"Hello Anthony." I answered in the most put together voice I could manage.

"Wow," he looked me up and down. Anthony had released me by then, but I didn't bother moving, it wouldn't do a thing to help me now. "You sure have changed."

"Thanks." I said bitterly.

A slow smile started to spread across Anthony's face then.

"But, you know that doesn't at all change my feelings for you. I still love you and always will! And I mean it when I say that my love for you grows with every second of every day!"

I groaned in embarrassment as Anthony actually got down on the floor on one knee as if he were about to propose to me right there and then.

I swear to God, you help out a person once and it's as if they're forever indebted you. I had helped out Anthony Garcia when he used to get bullied as a kid for being short and having red hair. A leprechaun, they called him. But, it was I who stood by him and kicked those kids' asses and every since then Anthony's been going crazy for me. Trying to hold my books for me, do my homework for me, even chew my food for me! That type of thing drove me crazy, but since I didn't want to hurt his feelings, I kept my complaints bottled up inside of me.

I looked towards Aliyah for some help and she quickly sprung into action.

"Oh, Anthony, it's been so long since I've last seen you, how have you been?!" Aliyah grabbed him and pulled him up and over to her.

"Um, I just saw you yesterday." he laughed softly, his eyes glued to me the entire time.

"And what a day it was too!"

Anthony squinted his eyes at her. "You made me do your calculus homework and when I refused you kicked me out of the house!"

"What's a little disagreement between friends?" Aliyah started to tug him away in the other direction.

"Oh so, we're friends now?" he seemed really amused by Aliyah and even I smiled a little at that.

"Ah, Anthony, we've been friends for so long, I'm surprised you're even asking that!" Aliyah pressed one hand to her chest in mock surprise, while with the other she waved at me to get lost.

I grinned and made my escape then.

"Hey, where'd Saphire go?" I heard Anthony ask then.

I didn't stop and instead kept racing up the many stairs, trying to get to the safety haven of my room.

"Ah, forget her for now, look Aelita's here and Andrew's brought over a friend from France for you to meet." Aliyah's voice sounded faint from where I was then.

-♥- -♥- -♥-

I didn't see Anthony until the next day, when he had come to see me once again. I had ventured down from my room hungry for some breakfast, when I saw Anthony playing video games with Andrew and Odd, who he had immediately hit it off with.

I took a seat on top of the kitchen counter once again and began digging into some of the leftovers that were left over by Aliyah's mom and dad, who had gone out to dinner. That wasn't the first time they've left their children behind to go do something fun by themselves and it certainly won't be the last. Everyone in my family was crazy and crappy in some sort of a way or another. My own problems were nothing compared to Aliyah and Andrew's.

From my view, I could see Aliyah sitting with Aelita at the moment and they seemed to be talking about something. I heard my name being said more than once and strained to hear just what they were going on about. All of a sudden, Anthony spotted me and rushed over to see me. I didn't bother running away, since I was bored anyway and needed some entertainment for the time being.

"So, Saphire, my love." Anthony said to me, causing both Andrew and Odd to look over to us. I ignored their stares and just continued on with filling my stomach.

"Yes, Anthony, my doofus lover?" I replied, trying to sound polite as I acknowledged him.

"Is there anything you would like? Anywhere you would like to go?"

I shrugged. "No idea."

"Ooh, let's go shopping!" Aliyah suggested, jumping up and joining us.

Andrew, Anthony, and I all groaned while Aelita and Odd stayed silent. I used to love shopping back when I was still such a girly girl. I don't really enjoy it as much anymore now, because well I just think that there's more to life than going out and wasting my precious money on things that I don't even need. Plus, emo clothes come pretty cheap, since not many people at Kadic are interested in that type of thing.

"Oh, come on, it'll be a lot of fun and plus, you haven't shopped in Jersey in so long!" Aliyah continued to persuade me. "Right Aelita?" she turned towards Aelita with a wide grin on her face.

"Uh, I guess so." she replied quietly.

"And I'm sure Odd would love to see the new shops that just recently opened up, wouldn't you, Odd?" She turned towards him next, who wasn't even paying attention.

"Huh?" he looked up suddenly. "Oh yeah, sure."

"Great, then it's decided - we're all going shopping!"

"What are you talking about, it's clearly a tie - three against three." Andrew pointed out.

Aliyah frowned, but then immediately smiled again and I realized she just had a "brilliant" idea. I groaned inwardly; I knew where this was going already.

"Anthony," she strutted up to him. "Don't you wanna go out and buy Saphire something she can treasure forever when she has to leave you behind again and return back to France?"

A slow grin started spreading across his face and before I could tell Aliyah to cut it out, he spun his head over to me, his eyes gleaming brightly.

"I'm in!"

"Yay, that's four against two; we're going shopping."

"That's cheating!" Andrew cried out.

"No, it's smart thinking. Now, come on, before all the nice things are all taken."

-♥- -♥- -♥-

An hour and a half later, my feet had what felt like a hundred blisters, my face was all sweaty and my clothes stuck close to my body, while Anthony had stuck closer.

"Can we please just go home already?!" I begged Aliyah. "My feet are killing me - literally!"

"But, you haven't bought a thing!" Aliyah pouted.

"That's because I don't need any thing!"

"Still. We're not leaving this store until you buy something, even if it's a bottle of nail polish," she must've seen my angry posture, because then her voice softened. "Come on, Saph, everyone's bought something or the other, except for you. Please, for me!"

"Alright, fine!" I groaned. "If I find anything good, I will."

"Yay!" she skipped off, tugging Aelita with her.

'Those two sure have gotten real close.' I couldn't help thinking to myself.

The thought made me sad, but I couldn't let it get to me. I remained in the back with Anthony next to me and Andrew and Odd next to him. It was finally when Andrew pulled Anthony away from me to show him this cool video game store that was giving away some grand prize, that I was able to really breathe. Anthony's been next to me the whole entire morning, from when we ate breakfast together to when we first boarded the bus.

I started walking around myself and that's when I saw it. It was a store that was similar to Hot Topic but wasn't exactly it; it didn't really have that depressing aura, but more like an emo chic type. My eye caught on a beautiful outfit that was put on a doll in the window display. My face was practically pressed up against the window as my eyes scrutinize every single inch and seam of it.

"You should buy it; it'll look real nice on you," I heard a voice say from behind me. "I heard that there's some dance coming up, you should wear it to there."

There were so many things wrong with that sentence, I didn't know which one to point out first. In the end though, I just ended up grumbling back, "I don't go to dances."

I turned around then to face Odd, who I knew had seen me standing there, staring at the outfit in the store for quite some time now.

I turned around then to face Odd, who I knew had seen me standing there, staring at the outfit in the store for quite some time now.

"Oh." was all he said before he turned and walked away.

I did quick look back at Anthony, he was busy talking with Andrew and his gaze of me was hidden by Odd's giant troll head as he walked over to join them. I glanced another secretive look towards the window display, then back at Odd, and then again at the outfit. I was so confused, I had no idea which to choose. I bit my lip for a few seconds, contemplating, but when I saw some goth couple entering the store, I made up my mind.

I was getting it. I rushed into the store, before they could even open up the door, mumbling apologizes to the two. I spent all my money on the outfit and then exited the store as quickly as I had entered. They others hadn't seem to have noticed my disappearance at all, which I was grateful for. When Aliyah saw the single shopping bag in my hands, she smile and declared that it was finally time for us to go home.

-♥- -♥- -♥-

Once we got home, I rushed straight to my room and locked the door securely before putting my shopping bag on my bed and quickly, but carefully taking the outfit out. It looked even more perfect in my arms and up close. It seemed to be glowing, but I knew that was just an exaggeration. I stared at it for a while, basking in all it's beauty as I held it in my arms like a small, wounded animal.

'Should I go to the dance?' I wondered helplessly. 'Or would it just end up creating too much trouble?'

I had no idea what to do, but I did know that I still had plenty of time to think about it. The homecoming dance wasn't for another month or so. And if I didn't wear it, then I could always just give it away to Yumi - I couldn't possible think of having it in my closet just sitting there, collecting dust - I knew she'd like it more than I would.

I took one more look at it before returning it back to it's original place. Then I hid the bag deep into my closet and laid down on my bed. All that shopping and walking around for so long had really taken it's toll on me, but I smiled, knowing that it had definitely been worth it.
