Crazy Like Me

Anyone around town would describe Ayra West as crazy. She does what her heart desires, without giving a thought to the consequences. Says what she thinks, and talks to herself. Out loud. It’s safe to say that’s the reason she never had any friends.
But that’s about to change when one day, she bumps into Matt Walker. Or rather he bumps into her. With a car. It’s then she realizes there’s someone in the world as crazy as her.
As the two befriend each other, it’s no surprise that it’s an adventure of a lifetime. A story worth telling. After all, laughter is good for your health.


4. Four- Perfect Combination

Matt/ James aka the Cow POV

I never thought it would hurt so much. I never thought I would care. But as the person I used to call my friend walked away from me in a time that I needed her, I couldn’t help but feel empty. Here I thought someone understood me and accepted me. But the truth was, no one was going to accept me. She only wanted to see the crazy side of me, while the rest of the world only wanted the serious one. Why didn’t they understand that I was both?

I had been in a bad mood ever since that day, two weeks ago. The crazy side of me had gone away now. If a friend couldn’t accept me, what could I expect from everyone else?

My dad had been ecstatic about my bad mood. It didn’t matter that I was suffering alone. As long as I didn’t cause trouble, he was happy.

The doorbell rung, causing me to come out of my self pity and check who it was.

“What is it?” I yelled, so annoyed that I didn’t even check who it was.

I was met with the girl who had caused my bad mood.

“Hey, Matt” She said. My mouth fell open in surprise. I had never heard her say my name. Maybe she was actually serious this time?

I shook away that thought. There is no way in the world that Ayra West could ever be serious. So I closed the door in her face. Or at least, I attempted to do that. But she had predicted my move as she was quick to stop the door from closing.

“Please, Matt. I’m sorry and I want to apologize. Just give me a chance” she said with her pleading eyes. There was no way I could say no to her.

I opened the door wide to give her space to come in. She stepped in and scanned the house in awe. But she must’ve remembered what she came for because she forced herself to be serious and started explaining.

“When you told me about why you acted...crazy, I felt betrayed. The first thing that came into my mind was that you were pretending, while I was really that way from the start. So I walked away and that was the biggest mistake I could’ve made. Matt, you’re my friend and I was supposed to comfort you, to accept you like you accepted me. But I didn’t and for that I’m sorry”

She looses so sincere, I couldn’t help but forgive her right at that moment. I could tell that she was serious, for the first time in her life.

“Apology accepted. But I have to warn you though, I’m not as fun as I was before so I may bore you”

“I was thinking and you know what? That’s a good thing. I can help you get off the ground sometimes and you’ll keep me from flying off to far. We’ll balance each other out. It’s a perfect combination, really. I don’t know why I didn’t see it before”

My eyebrows raise in surprise as I say,”That’s actually very wise.”

And understanding starts to build between us. I obviously have know idea who I really am. Ayra’s words are a promise. That we’ll stay together no matter what. That we’re going to only share joy, but also sorrow. That we’ll be true friends.
