2. Chapter 2

I believe that it was mid-December when my best friend, Bella, betrayed me. Bella had very curly, dirty blonde hair and huge glasses. She tended to wear jeans and flannels or baggy sweaters. And, to top it off, she always wore her black Vans. She used little makeup if at all and didn't really care about how she looked. And yet, somehow, Bella always was the prettiest of the two of us. Even if I tried really hard to look good, which was hardly ever.

 She was skipping class one day, which was totally not like her. She had been in our last period, but not in math class where I was then. I'd known that she was here and I knew that she didn't get signed out, and so I figured that maybe she'd gotten sick and was in the bathroom. Since she was my best friend, I decided that I'd go check on her. So I then raised my hand and was excused to go to the restroom. As I was on my way, I saw a slightly open janitorial closet door. I knew pretty much exactly what was going on in there, though not speaking from experience. Not wanting to get in whoever was fooling around's way, I crossed over to the other side of the hallway. But I couldn't help but look back to see who it was because they'd left the door wide open. To my surprise, it was Bella. I'd guessed I'd found her. Yet that wasn't the biggest surprise. The real shock was when I saw who she was with. It was my boyfriend, Derick. We'd been together since freshman year, and--as far as I knew--never cheated on me before. I started to cry because, well, I loved him. Our three-year anniversary was coming up soon. So how could he have done this to me?

I ended up running into the bathroom and I cried until I heard the sound of the bell dismissing us from class. I then wiped my face mostly clean of mascara and eyeliner and got the puffiness around my eyes to go down as much as I possibly could. After a minute, I looked normal enough and exited the bathroom.

I still hadn't figured out how I was going to confront Bella or Derick, but what I did know is that I was going to do something and that was not going to fly. Thankfully, I didn't have any more classes with either of them. But the one question that kept bouncing back and forth inside my head: how long had this been going on? Was it just a one or first time thing? Or had they been sneaking off together for a while now? Either way, it is not right. I thought that Derick loved me; I thought that Bella was my loyal best friend. But I guess not. And I wondered if I would have to lose both of them over their own stupidity and dishonesty? I hoped not and I wasn't sure, but I was going to have to find out soon.
