9. Chapter 9

I was waiting for Brittney to arrive after I'd been dropped off. Eventually, she arrived. But she wasn't the same girl that I remembered. I even tensed up as she approached me. She used to be super peppy and a girly-girl. Instead, now she wore a lot of black and her hair was cut short. And it was dyed purple. She had piercings all up her ears and a nose ring. I wasn't really sure if I wanted to be her friend anymore. I had already agreed to this, though. Plus, beggars cannot be choosers.

"Hey, what's up?", I asked.

She must've known tat I was nervous, and probably used to it,too, because she joked," What? It's not like I'm gonna bite you or anything."

I then decided that this wouldn't be so bad after all, and so I smiled. Brittney also smiled, and I realized that I was going to have yet another friend that would always be prettier than me. But I didn't mind it because she was kind of a scary pretty, and so I probably wouldn't have to worry too much about people being all over her in front of me, unlike Bella.

After that, I gave her the bland tour. I was like, "So this is the toilets, and here is the science class. Oh, and you can't forget torture," I said, pointing to the gym. We both laughed at that. Brittney was so great to joke around with, and she was super, super not scary once you got to know her. I was so overjoyed to have her back.

Later that day, at lunch, Brittney and I were walking towards the cafeteria. I jumped when I noticed Derick sitting at his usual spot. He hadn't been at school since I'd broke up with him. But he was messier. So for from his normal, perfect self. Like I was looking at him through a fish tank. Like someone had gone and blurred and smeared him.And Brittney, being the terrific friend she was, noticed this.

"Hey, what's wrong?", she asked.

I then nodded my head in the direction of Derick. She looked his way and then gave me a weird look. I took out to the courtyard then. 

"I can trust you not to tell anyone, right?"

"Oh course," Brittney said. "Who would I even tell?"

"Okay," I replied. And then I told her all about Derick. And Bella, because she, too, was a huge part of this story.

After I finished, Brittney was almost in tears and was looking at me sympathetically. 

"I'm so, so sorry," she sighed. "We...we should tell somebody?"

"No!" , I whisper-yelled.

"Fine, fine. But what, then?"

"I...I just really don't know..." I cried. I was balling my eyes out again, but, thankfully, I had Brittney's support. She was just so great.

The bell went off right about then, and so we both stood up and got ready to go. The only reason that I even moved, though, was due to the fact that Brittney was holding me up. Otherwise, I probably would've just stayed there, crying out my pain and fear, despite the fact that neither would leave.
