“Fuck off Caleb. You can see I’m trying to sleep here you dick!” I muttered rolling over as he insisted on waking me up.
“Amelia, you can’t sleep all day, we have things to do!” He pulled my blankets off me and i grabbed another one off the floor.
“Some sister you are can’t even come to your brother’s gig.” Caleb mumbled, finally giving up. Was that today? I looked at the date on my phone. Shit! It is today. I ran around finding clean clothes and was ready just in time.
“Aw, you do love me!” Caleb joked, pulling me into a hug.
Making our way out to the car, I saw Kyle with Mindy, his girlfriend. I faked a smile as Caleb and I approached them. Truth be told, I hated her out of jealousy, I just didn’t want Kyle to find out. We had been friends since 1st grade, I couldn’t ruin it over some silly crush I had.
As we all got in, I made sure I didn’t look over t Kyle and Mindy too often.
As we arrived at the venue, I could hear so many girls screaming seriously thought I was going to go deaf. Then I saw it. Mindy. Another guy that wasn't Kyle. WHORE!
I had to tell Kyle, but what if telling him hurt him? I couldn't bear seeing him in pain. I'll leave it, pretend I didn't see anything. How could she kiss another man while she was with Kyle? He is so Freaking perfect!
I kept clear of her for the rest of the night, I knew that if I saw her I would confront her about what I saw. Keep calm, Amelia, keep calm. Don't cause a scene, it won't help anyone or anything.
On the way home after the set, it was so obvious that Mindy was wasted. Only Mindy was wasted. Because that doesn't say 'guilty' or anything. As Jonathan dropped me and Caleb home, Kyle jumped out and gave me a hug. As soon as he let go, my heart skipped a beat. I hope he didn't feel it! Getting back in the car, I smiled a sad smile as he leant down to kiss Mindy.
Don't cry. I willed myself as Caleb unlocked the door and we both went inside.
"I'm gonna call it a night, sis." Caleb, sighed, hugging me and heading upstairs. Oh, the life of some. He didn't love like his best friend who was already dating someone else.
"Austin, you are more of a girl than me! Just get it." I said, pointing to the corner of the room. He shuddered and stayed seated.
"Fine, I'll do it." I muttered, taking off my shoe and throwing it at the wall where the spider was. I saw Austin move further in the opposite direction as I took my shoe to the kitchen to put the dead spider in the bin. Aren't guys meant to be tough and kill bug for the girls, not the other way round?
I put my shoe back on and sat down on the couch again.
"I'm hungryyyyy." I complained, standing up.
"Ooh, ooh! Who's up for pizza?" I said louder than necessary. Like I expected, Kyle was the first one up.
"You know me so well!" He joked, putting his arm around my waist. Mindy sighed and rolled her eyes.
"Yeah, pizza's great...if you wanna get fat!." She scoffed.
"Mindy, give it a rest. You don't have to come but you don't have to be a bitch about it." Kyle snapped, shocking us all, except Mindy of course.
"God, Kyle, why do I bother anymore? I don't need to put up with this shit, I deserve so much better!"
"No, you don't." I mumbled, but the others heard me.
"What do you mean?" Kent asked, turning to me.
I looked away but they were persistent.
"I saw you last night, Mindy, who was he?" She turned bright red and refused to look any of us in the eye. I had busted her, she was done for and she knew it.
"Get out." Kyle finally spoke, even though it wasn't his house.
"Get out, never come back, never call, stay out of our lives."
She stormed out and i changed where I was sitting so that I could comfort Kyle. Poor guy just had his heart crushed.
"You gonna be okay?" I asked, my hand on his arm, trying to make him feel the slightest bit better.
"Yeah." He half-smiled at me and I just wanted to hug him, to let him know that someone cared about him, even if Mindy didn't. He rested his head on my shoulder, which was both awkward because of his height yet oddly comforting.
All I need now is courage. Courage to tell him exactly how I feel. Yeah right!
