To Be You
I reached for my graduation cap in sync
with the rest of my peers graduating. We all gave a loud yelp as
we threw our caps simultaneously into the air.
"We did it bro!" I heard someone say as
they slapped my back. I turned to see Desmond grinning from ear
to ear. I hugged him, after this he'd be moving down south to go
to some other College. Over Desmond's shoulder I could see Adella
"Wait here a sec," I said walking over to
her. I tapped her shoulder and smiled. She turned around and
"What do you want Burthington," she said,
her smile fading.
"Listen," I awkwardly mumbled as I touched
the back of her hair, she slapped my hand and I laughed.
Those eyes, they could always make my heart melt I
"Easy tiger," I snickered.
"Leave me alone," she hissed turning away
"You are alone," I loudly said. Everyone
shifted off the stage, snickers and whispers erupting. She
ignored me and followed her friends off
"Still messing with her Gray?" I heard Desmond say. I shrugged.
Desmond shook his head. Desmond had a soft spot for her,
sometimes I even thought he had a thing for her.
"Anyway, you still coming tonight?" he
asked. I nodded.
"Fuck yeah," I said, as I walked off stage
and into the arms of my proud parents.
The graduation party was well under way when I'd arrived. I
walked into Vincent's mansion, being greeted by people I didn't
know and those I wished I didn't.
"Glad you could make it," Bianca Newburn
said. I smiled, admittedly she looked hot in her skimpy outfit,
but I was done with her. Now, she was just another girl I'd
banged in the backseat of my car.
searched the house for Desmond, trying not to be interrupted by
any girls that passed my way, when something caught my
"Rossdale," I said. She looked at me and
rolled her eyes, she was with Sonny and Betsy. The same two
people all the time.
"What is someone like you, doing at a party
like this?" I said sarcastically.
"Piss off," Sonny said shoving me
love you too Sonny," I whispered in her ear. She punched my arm
and I laughed as I found Desmond hooking up with some random
girl. Nice one kid I thought leaving him to do his
The party was almost over, judging by how
everyone was leaving.
"Still here Rossdale?" I asked, she was
sitting on the couch by herself. She stood up and ignored,
walking swiftly past me.
"Ouch," I said.
"Why do you do this to me?" she asked, her
tone of voice becoming serious, broken even. I smirked and
touched her cheeks. She flinched and pulled
"Because, you're the only bitch I haven't
fucked yet," I said winking. She slapped me across the
"You have some ner-"
don't think you want to make an ass of yourself," I interrupted.
She looked at me horrified as she stormed away. I followed her
out onto the parlour.
"Get lost," she said, she was crying; she
was now trying to hide away her face.
"Adella," I paused.
"I'm sorry," I said sitting on the bench.
She stayed quiet.
know I've done some pretty fucked up shit, but I really don't
"You know what I find funny?" she interrupted sitting next to me.
I shook my head.
find it funny that no matter how many times you tend to pick on
me; I can't help but not hate you," she said laughing. My eyes
"But, that doesn't mean I like you. I still
dislike you, your personality, the way you treat people; girls
especially and most of all, I hate that of all people, the bad
guy had to be you," she said genuinely. My heart stopped for a
can't wait to leave and be a million miles way from you. Have a
nice life kid," she whispered. She stood up and began to walk
away. I stood up and grabbed her arm and wrapped my arms around
her. Surprisingly she didn't push me away. I smiled crazily, I
didn't want to let her go.
"Can I kiss you?" I asked, my voice so
don't think that's a good ide-" before she could finish I pressed
my lips against hers and I swear that between our split kiss she
"Well what do we have here," I heard
someone say. Shit, she's going to hate me forever now I
thought. I released her and closed my eyes for a split
"You ready to go make babies now?" I asked
mockingly, I winked at the guys as they erupted in laughter. She
looked at me horrified.
"I hate what you've become; I would never be caught dead with
you, ever!" she said, tears slowly streaming down her cheeks as
she stormed away. The guys looked at me with Desmond behind, he
wasn't laughing. Instead he looked disappointed, somewhat angry.
I cussed furiously under my breath because in all honesty I think
she meant every word she scolded at me and to be honest I don't
think I was ever going to see her again.
