Dear Agony

I can't even anymore. Seeing them in the hallways, in our classes, at lunch, on Facebook and Instagram, and sometimes through my window when I'm lying around the house. It hurts like hell. I'm friends with them both but lately, it hurts more than usual. The moment I think I'm getting over them, I think of something or I see something, or some idiot says something, and it comes back full force.

(The title comes from the song Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin.)


6. Sleepovers

Kaci's POV

When I get home, the house is, as usual, empty. I trudge up the stairs to my room and when I hit the threshold, I'm slammed by a wave of memories of all the times Jake, Haley, and I spent here. I grab my favorite pillow and hug it close. It was a birthday present from Alex, it has Nemo on it. I love Nemo, he's so cool. I remember the day I got it...


My 11th birthday party. I smile big as Haley and I take a few pictures with our friends. Haley excuses herself to go talk to my mom and I see Alex, one of my besties. She looks really nervous...and she brought me a really big box. It's wrapped in Finding Nemo wrapping paper and a Nemo bowtie on top. I squeal in excitement and jump on Alex, hugging her tightly. "Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!! I don't know what it is but I love it already! How did you know I loved Nemo?" She laughs loudly then says, "You've been my best friend forever Kace. How could I not know?" She gives me a rare Alex smile, the kind that could light up the whole word, and my heart skips a few beats. I swear it did. But I shake those thoughts away. I have Haley. I can't like Alex. Sure, she's bi. Sure, she's in love with Haley and I. But I couldn't do that to Haley, could I? I'm snapped out of my thoughts as Alex snaps in my face, "Kace. Are you otay?" I laugh because she started saying otay after she met me and hasn't been able to stop since. I pat her on the cheek and smile, "I'm great Aly." I'm the only one allowed to call her Aly. She hits anybody else who tries, even Haley. "Alrighty then. I just came to drop off your present. Open it in your room, there's a note in there. Bye, Kacikins." She walks away after kissing my cheek and I call bye after her and take the present up to my room. I stare at it for at least five minutes before deciding to open it after the party. I go back downstairs and have fun but all the while, I can't help but think, I wonder what the note says......

*End of flashback*

I'm smiling and the tears have finally stopped. Thinking back, I remember I never read the note and I feel a bit guilty now. I saved the box and wrapping paper so I rummage through my closet and find them behind years' worth of junk. I dig through the box, and pull the note out. When I read it, my smile grows impossibly wide. It's just like Alex to write something so fluffy,

To the best best friend in the whole wide world,

I'm not even sure what to put in this note so it'll probably be all over the place but I know you won't mind. Happy birthday Kacibear, we haven't talked in quite awhile but I know you're busy so I don't mind. At least you still say hi to me whenever we cross paths in school. Have I told you how happy I am that you're in my life? Because I am, so very happy. Gosh, I really am a rambler, aren't I? Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that I'm here if you ever need an impromptu sleepover or someone to pull an all-nighter on the phone with. Anytime, anywhere, no matter how far. Even if we're a thousand miles apart, I'll be there in a flash. I promise.

Love you Kacikins,


I sit on my bed and think about her note. After a few minutes, I decide I need one of those impromptu sleepovers, so I call Aly. She answers on the first ring, "Kaci?" "Yeah, how'd you know?" "You're in my contacts, dummy." I laugh at myself, "I forgot, my bad. Hey, you wanna come over? I could use the company." I start thinking about early and sniffle. She hears and is immediately in over-protective best friend mode, "What happened? You know what, don't tell me yet. Give me fifteen minutes to pack and whatnot, I'm on the way." I sniffle and wipe at my eyes furiously, "Thanks Aly. Hurry would you, I don't want to be alone anymore." I hang up the phone and flop back onto my bed to wait. Before I know it, I feel myself drifting off. The last thing I hear before I fall into a light sleep is, Anytime, anywhere, no matter how far. Even if we're a thousand miles apart, I'll be there in a flash. I promise.

Alex's POV

After I get off the phone with Kaci, I immediately start packing my overnight bag. I don't even know what's happened but I automatically know it has something to do Haley. She wouldn't call me if she could call Haley. I wonder what happened. Before I know it, I'm in my Mustang and racing over to Kaci's. After a few minutes of breaking traffic laws, I'm at Kaci's front door, banging on it like I'm the police until I hear her come pounding down the stairs. She opens the door and smiles this half smile that breaks my heart. She looks heartbroken; her hair is everywhere and her eyes are red and puffy, as if she's been crying hard for a long period of time. I immediately pull her into a tight hug and she breaks down in my arms. I carry her  upstairs and push open the door to her room. After I set her on the bed, I take a look around. It's been awhile, but it's still the same room. Royal blue walls, a king sized bed in the middle of the huge room pushed against the wall and huge dresser against the wall beside the window. Nothing's changed except the pictures, now there's mostly pictures of her and Haley. There's one with just Kaci and I though, and I smile when I remember where we were,


"C'mon Kaci!!" I pull her by the hand as we head to our favorite spot in the park, my parents following behind us. I st down and pull her with me, her head falling my lap. We sit like this for hours, just enjoying each other in silence as we watch the clouds while I play in Kaci's hair until I have a curious thought, "Kace?" She looked up at me, "Yeah, Al?" I bite my lip nervously before asking, "Are we gonna be best friends forever?" She looks shocked, "Of course we'll always be best friends, silly! I don't care if we live ten thousand miles apart, you will always be my best friend. You get me?" I nod happily and pull her in for a big hug as she wrapped her arms around my waist and hugs me tighter. I pull back and say, "Love you Kaciboo." She laughs and says "Love you too Alybear." After that, my parents come and tell us we have to go. Kaci and I decide we want to take a picture so we can always remember this day. We pose standing side by side, with my arm around her waist and her arm slung across my shoulders, both of us sporting huge grins. My parents take the picture and then we all go back to my house since Kaci is staying the week while her parents are away on business. We agree to always be best friends and to always be there for each other no matter what. 

*End of flashback*

I smile, remembering us back then. I hear Kaci shift behind me. I sit down on the bed beside her and ask, "What happened Kacikins? Was it Haley? I swear to god I'll kill her. What did she do? Oh my gosh! Did she hit you? That little bi-" Kaci cuts me off by placing her hand over my mouth, "Alex, honey. Breathe. She didn't hit me, she..she.." I shush her and pull her into another hug, "It's okay. You don't have to talk about it." She shakes her head and wipes her eyes before looking at me, "I caught her and Jake kissing and they told me they had been sneaking around since six months after we got together."

Kaci's POV

"SHE DID WHAT??" Alex is pissed. I knew I'd have to tell her what happened eventually and honestly, she's reacting better than I thought she would. I grab her face and make her look at me before she can start to go on a full-blown rampage, "Aly calm down! It's okay. I broke up with Haley the minute I found out and I don't plan on ever speaking to her again. So just....calm down okay? For me?" She takes a few deep breaths before placing her hands over mine on her cheeks, "Sorry, it's just....I never thought Haley would do this. She hurt you and she deserves to pay for it." I look at her and smile a little bit, "You always have been so protective." I swing my legs into her lap and lean my head on her shoulder as she wraps her arms around me protectively.

I look up at her and ask, "Wanna watch a movie?" She smiles and nods. We spend 20 minutes just trying to pick out a movie and settle on Mean Girls, our favorite to watch when it's just the two of us. We spend the entire movie talking along and when the Christmas Talent Show part comes on, we both get up and dance along with Cady, Regina, Gretchen and Karen while singing along to Jingle Bell Rock. When we finish, we laugh so hard we start crying and then we watch a few more movies before we decide to listen to some One Direction. While we were singing along with She's Not Afraid, I glanced at her and saw her smiling wider than I'd seen her smile since I showed up. After a four to five hour 1D music marathon, we realize it's almost 2 am and that we, unfortunately, have school in the morning. We put on They Don't Know About Us, since Alex can't fall asleep without music playing, and we get in my bed. I turn on my side and feel Aly snuggle up behind me, her arm draping itself over my midsection. She falls asleep fairly quickly and at some point I fall asleep to the feeling of her breath hitting the back of my neck ever so gently.

That night, I dream of brown eyes and strong arms. All the while with Louis Tomlinson's solo replaying in the background, They don't know how special you are. They don't know what you've done to my heart. They can say anything they want, cause they don't know us......
