Stuck with Me

"Some people can make such an impact on your life. They stick with you forever, like a stain on your favorite shirt. No matter how much you wash it and scrub, it never leaves. It becomes an item that's shoved in the back of your closet, it becomes forgotten. That's what Cameron did to me."

When Karissa falls in love with the school's poster child she finds out what lies behind the perfect smile and super model good looks. As Cameron's problems progressively get worse, Karissa's love for him deepens. Does Karissa bite off to much to chew or will she stay and support Cameron?

               After the day in the auditorium, making out during school hours became routine, with each session becoming more and more steamy. Throughout the school day (besides when we were making out) it was like any other regular friendship. We'd talk during the classes we had together and then after that we'd go our seperate ways. It was great knowing that no one would come up to me asking questions, or give me dirty looks. No one knew and as Cameron had said one time it was our "...dirty little secret.." We weren't just using each other to make out though. We'd actually talk. I learned that his favourite colour was blue "Not like sky blue, like... A shade right before navy blue." He said. He also has two older sisters Samantha and Peyton and a little brother Blaise. There was one day when we met that changed everything though.After the day in the auditorium, making out during school hours became routine, with each session becoming more and more steamy.

"Hey Karissa," Juliana said to me one day in our calculus class. She was standing right in front of me smirk planted on her pretty face. Her dark brown hair curled loosely and touching just below her belly button. She was wearing a crop top showing off her perfectly sculpted stomach with her belly button ring poking out. Juliana was also wearing too tight-barley there shorts. It was October. I decided to keep my mouth shut.

"Hey what's up?" I asked her. Juli took it upon herself to take a seat in the desk next to me. "Do you need help with math?" I asked her. Juli shook her head and leaned in closer to me.

"I know we haven't talked but I need you to do me a favor..." I nodded my head and she proceed to talk. "There's a rumor going around that Cameron is making out with someone in the auditorium. If you see who it is would you tell me?"

"Why does it even matter? You guys aren't dating anymore are you?" I asked her trying not to sound eager to find out.

"Because I still love him. Please, you know if you found out Ashton had another girl friend you'd be heartbroken." Juli said with an attitude. I rolled my eyes and put my pencil down.

"Okay, well why would I help you? You never talked to me once until now? I'm doing shit for you Juliana." I said to her. Juli scoffed and walked away joined her fake friends.

"Come to the auditorium," Cameron texted. I quickly texted him back.

"Juliana is catching on, we've got to find a different place if we're going to keep doing this." I texted back.

"It doesn't matter. I don't want to make out today anyway. I just want to hang out. You and me." He texted. I smiled as I clacked my screen and slipped my phone back into my pocket. I put my work back into my binder and walked to the front of the class where Mr. Abraham was sitting, his face glued to the computer screen.

"Excuse me Mr. Abraham, May I please go to the nurse. My stomachs really bothering me." As Mr. Abraham turned to face me I could tell by the expression on his face that he knew I was bullshitting him.

"Did you finish your work?" He asked.

"Yup," I said handing him my sheet.

"Okay you can go." He said waving me off as he placed my sheet of paper in the complete bin. I walked out of the classroom and I would've sprinted down to the auditorium if I wouldn't have seemed too desperate and eager. When I walked down the music hallway I seen Cameron standing against the music lockers.

"Someone is having a lesson in the auditorium," Cameron said. I sighed and walked up to him warping my arms around his waist and resting my head on his shoulder. We swayed back and fourth slightly.

"So now what?" I asked him. Everything felt right with Cameron, even if we weren't really together being together like this was nice too.

"We stay here," he said kissing me on my cheek. I smiled and looked up at him. "How's everything going?" He asked.

"Alright, my sister from London is going to be visiting next week, I'm excited." I told him.

"Oh cool," Cameron said excited. "Maybe I could meet her," Cameron suggested. I shrugged my shoulders.

"I don't know. She's mostly coming to visit family." I said to him.

"Okay well, maybe I could have dinner at your place with your family... If that's what you had in mind." Cameron said looking down at me his brown eyes seeming lighter.

"My parents wouldn't just believe that I have a 'guy friend'." I said putting 'guy friend' in air quotes. Cameron but his bottom lip and looked down at his shoes.

"That's what I wanted to talk to you about." Cameron said. "I really like you Riss-"

"No Cameron." I said holding up my hand to stop him. "I just like the way things are now between us." The expression on Cameron's face was solid as a rock. "...don't you?" I asked him.

"No I don't. I like you, and I want to have a relationship with you Karissa. I hate sneaking around." Cameron said. I had never planned of being in a relationship with Cameron. Everything we were doing in school was fun and I liked that. No strings attached, kind if deal. I hated catching feelings, you always end up getting hurt even if the other person doesn't mean to hurt you. For the past few weeks of us sneaking around I'd been suppressing my growing feelings for Cameron. Things just wouldn't work out between us. And I never thought that Cameron would want to fake things to the next level anyway.

"Cameron..."

"Rissa, I couldn't help myself. I really, like you. If you don't like me back it want to be in a relationship that's fine. We just can't make out anymore, I like you and I want to be with you, but I also don't want to get my heart broken."

We just can't make out anymore, I like you and I want to be with you, but I also don't want to get my heart broken." I was at a loss for words. Cameron shook his head and let go of me. What was I supposed to say? Cameron looked at me as if waiting for me to say something.

                 "I'm sorry," I said.

                 "Of course you are." Cameron said walking away. I was left standing alone in the music hallway. I put my hand to my four head and I wanted to cry.

                 "What the hell?" I said to myself. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and texted Kaylee and told her to meet me in the band hallway. It took her almost five minuets for her to get to me. She noticed the distress on my face.

                 "What happened Karissa?" She asked.

                 "Cameron happened, I should've never gotten involved with him," I said feeling terrible. I was worries that we'd never be friends with him again and I honestly enjoyed spending time with him. Talking to him and kissing him. He was really funny too, I really didn't want to loose him.

                  "What'd he do?" Kaylee asked with a sigh as she leaned against the lockers.

                  "He asked me out."

                  "Like on a date or to be his gir-"

                  "The second one," I said cutting her off.

                  "Well what'd you say?" She asked. I started to frown and Kaylee's mouth dropped. "You said no?!" She exclaimed.

                   "Well I didn't really say no but I was implying it," I told Kaylee. Kaylee ran her fingers through her dark brown wavy hair.

                    "Riss you can't do that. You were leading him on!" Kaylee yelled. Dammit, was I really being that much of an asshole?

                    "You're not helping," I said to Kaylee.

                    "I'm not supposed to! I'm supposed to be honest with you! Look, I know that you don't want to be with him but you should've told him that before you got involved with these little meetings that you guys have. You owe him a better explanation than the one that you gave him."

                     "You're right." I said to Kaylee. She was the best friend I had, and I'm so happy that I had her in my life. I started walking down the hallway and Kaylee started chasing behind me.

                    "What are you doing?" She called behind me.

                    "I'm going to try to make things right!" I yelled.

 

 

***Present***

 

                  "Okay," Mr. Montey says opening the big metal door that leads into the visiting room. I was a room with windows on every wall. "I'm going to be standing right outside this door. No hugging for longer than two minuets and no kissing for no longer than two minuets. If you wish to break these rules then you will be put into isolation for three days do you understand?" I nod my head and Mr. Montey opens the door to the room. "There are camera's and recorders, everything will be watched after this visit takes place and depending on what is talked about that could endanger yourself or any other inmate in here there will be consequences." 

                  I step foot into the room and admire the sky light from up above that reminded me of my great aunt Abie's house. He closes and locks the door behind me and when he returns and he opens the door and Cameron walks in. He looks so different, his face is scruffy with stubbly beard hairs. He looks like a grown man and he walks with such swagger and I wasn't used to it. I didn't know what to do so when he walked in the room I stood up awkwardly almost tripping over my chair. I smooth out my orange slacks and smile nervously. 

                "Once this door closes your two hours will begin," Mr. Montey says the heavy metal door slamming shut. 

                "I never realized how good you look in orange," He says walking towards me. 

                "Thanks," I say. "I never realized how good you looked with a five o'clock shadow." I tell him. Cameron smiles and he rubs his cheeks. 

                 "Really? I've been getting a lot of compliments about it lately but really the only reason why it's like this is because I don't have enough time to shave it because I'm always studying and going to class." Cameron says. He's so handsome, why does he still have to be so irresistible? He still had the same charm but now he was more sophisticated now. I take a seat on one side of the table and Cameron makes his way over to the other side. I cross my arms over my chest and sigh.

                 "I'm bailing you out," Cameron says staring at me. I shake my head. It was the last thing I wanted from him after everything he's done to me, and the fact that I can't trust him on whether or not he was the one who got me in here.

                 "I don't need you to, I'll serve my time and I'll just get out when I'm supposed to." I say defiantly. Cameron rolls his eyes.

                 "Why do you always have to be so damn stubborn? Let me help you." Cameron pleads.

                 "You didn't even deliver me with the questions I was asking for. I need answers." I say leaning over the table towards him. 

                  "You're right." Cameron says clearing his throat. "I don't know for sure who ratted you out but I have a feeling that it was Taylor. She was caught going in and out of the police station and you and I both know she was the leader of the ring. A lot more people got arrested too her included. Luckily you have the least amount of time...So let me bail you out." 

                   "Cameron no! You're not bailing me out, I don't want or need you to bail me out. What made you want to be so nice all of a sudden huh? Is this idea of you repaying me for all the fucked up shit that you've done and put me through?" I ask. My eyes are literally about to pop out of my head I'm so angry.

                   "What if it is? You don't have to forgive me Riss but  this is my way of paying you back. I know I've been horrible to you, I'll never forgive myself if I don't repay you." Cameron says. I roll my eyes and decide to change the subject cause there's no winning with him. 

                     "How's college going?" I ask. Instantly a smile grows on his face. 

                     "Really well actually, I'm passing all my classes and I even met someone." He says. "Her name is Sarah, she's from California and she-"

                     "That's great," I say trying to stifle my tears. I look at Cameron and he smiles tightly. "I'm really happy for you." I say crying. 

                      "Sorry, I didn't realize that it was too soon. Karissa, I'm sorry." He says.

                      "I still love you!" I exclaim. "You ruined things for us, but that doesn't mean that I still didn't love you or wanted to be with you." I cry. 

                      "I think it's time for me to go," Cameron says getting up. 

                      "Oh yeah, go ahead leave me again! You're really good at leaving people you know that Cameron?" I yell as he walks past me. I grab onto his arm before he can knock on the glass to get out. "You owe me more than bailing me out of jail. Freedom can't fix a broken heart Cam, and if you can't understand that then maybe you shouldn't even bother putting 15 thousand dollars towards my bail." I tell him. 

                        "Karissa, you know I still love you right? Nothing will ever come between us but, we can't work. We're not good together." Cameron says. It broke my heart to hear the words come out of his mouth. I start to sob and Cameron turns around and walks towards me. His hands find my cheeks and he turns my face to look up at him.

                         "I'm so sorry Karissa. I really loved you...I loved you so much and I don't know if it was me or if it was you but  I don't feel that way anymore. I want what's best for you always, and I'll always be here for you but..."

                         "Not in that way." I say finishing his sentence. Cameron's face comes closer to mine and he kisses me like his life depends on it and I can feel the forced passion behind our kiss. The way he pulls me close, and I'm trying to feel something, forcing myself to find a spark that's not there. When he pulls away he frowns and he wipes away my tears. I can see the tears swelling in his eyes. 

                           "I'll call you," Cameron says, his voice cracks and he knocks on the glass to get out. Mr. Montey puts down his news paper and unlocks the door. 

                           "Your time isn't up son," He says to Cameron.

                           "I know, I just need to go..." I could tell by just the sound of his voice that he was crying. Before he left he turned around, I seen the tears running down his face as he waved goodbye. He tried so hard just to walk away.
