11. Chapter 11

Brittney never came with me to confront Derick. I think that she was too scared. And yet I went alone. I actually think that she ended up running away. Derick also started to retreat when he realized that I was coming towards him. 

"Stop, please. I just want to talk," I begged. Derick still inched farther and farther away. Finally I said, "Do it for me, please."

That made him stop in his tracks. And I knew it would because he still loved me. Because he wanted me back at whatever the cost.

"I just want to talk," I said again, sounding far more confident than I felt. "Why, Derick? Why do you do it?"

"Do... do wh-what?", Derick stuttered. But why was he pretending to be so clueless? Surely he knew that I was on to him?

"Stalk me...take pictures."

"I-I have no idea what you are talking about..."

"Quit playing stupid," I said. "I see the flashes, I see you."

At that point, Derick just gave up. "Then why didn't you ever stop me?"

"I...I wasn't sure how," I tried, which wasn't a lie. Plus I was just too scared. But I wasn't about to admit that.

Derick looked at me skeptically, like he wasn't exactly sure how to react. "I'm just so, so sorry. I never wanted to lose you. Never wanted you to go. So, please, please give me another chance?"

"No, Derick." I was on a roll then. "You watched me. You stalked me. And it's not right. Just get over it. It's your fault that I left. And Bella's, too. Was it your idea?"

"Stop it! Stop it, your wrong!"

"I trusted both of you," I continued. "And the two of you went off and betrayed me. But at least Bella got over it."

Derick was freaking out by that time, saying, "No, your wrong! I never meant to hurt you!"

"Yeah, well, you did. And I can't forgive you. I don't love you."

At this point, Derick was on the ground crying. "No! No! I love you, you can't go!"

"But I already have."

Just then, Derick pulled out a handgun. "You take that back! Take it back!"

I didn't move. I couldn't. I was completely frozen. 

"You didn't take it back!", he cried. And then he shot. I was dead as soon as the bullet hit my chest, and the last thing that I saw was Derick. He was holding his knees to his up to him on the ground and crying.
