Ch.14 I'm good, I'm gone
I look out the window in my last class of the day and it's safe to say that there is going to be a huge storm later today. It's pouring outside, but I'm lucky because Kyle promised he'll drive me to my house if it was still raining by the time school ended. Guess he has to now. I smile at the thought of it. It's been two weeks since Kyle and I got together and I feel so, so, alive.So happy and excited.Strangely enough my friends Patty, Jennifer, and Michelle all seemed to be tolerant of him. I didn't expect that, I thought they would all hatehis guts. Michelle told me it was because unlike Jake, he tried to befriend them. At least in the best way Kyle could befriend him. During lunch once Kyle told Patty, and I quote, "Shut the fuck up" which everyone thought was some sort of joke, but I knew better. He actually wanted her to be quiet. At the memory I laugh and then the bell rings, kids race off their chairs and bolt out the door. I gather my stuff and I see Eddie waiting for me at the door.
Lately he and I have patch things up and hopefully have gotten over our time apart. Because best friends forgive what you did in the past as long as you try to be better. And that's exactly how I feel now. I don't think I'll ever ditch him for a boy again. As much as Ilike the boy, I know that wouldn't be the case.
"Hey, are you walking home?" He asks me as we start walking to our lockers to drop things off.
"Uhm, no. Kyle told me he'll give me a ride." I say avoiding eye contact because I can't offer him a ride. Of course if it was my car he'd be the first one I would ask if he wanted a ride, but I'm in no position to offer him one now.
"Oh, yeah I see" he tells me as we both start opening our lockers and twisting the combination. When we were homeroom freshman year we wanted our lockers to be as close to each others as possible so he was able to score the locker two away from me by paying a guy twenty bucks. "Asshole of a boyfriend is trying to separate you from me"
"No! No not that I promise" I say worriedly. I don't want him to feel bad and I want him to know that everything is back to normal even if Kyle is in the picture.
"I'm kidding Steph. I don't care. I'm a big boy I can take a hint. And so if there's a little rain-" As soon as he said that you could clearly hear loud thunder. "And thunder. But look," he flexes his muscles, and he does have some since he plays baseball, and kisses his biceps. He is so cute sometimes it makes me blush all the time and he notices too. "I've got these. You like?" He raises and eyebrow and smirks.
"Yeah I do. A lot" I say and giggle. I insert some textbooks that I had been carrying around and pull my binder out. He does the same and we start to head for the entrance. "I can't seem to fighttheneed I have to touch them" I say as we turn the corner and bump right into Jake. Shit.
"Hey Jake, she really wants to touch them. Maybe that's why she broke up with you, you wouldn't put out" His football buddy snickers. Iroll my eyes and continue to walk.
"Wait, Stephanie" Jake says as he catches up to Eddie and I. "Can I talk to you for a second, in private?" I look over to Eddie who is glaring at him with clenched teeth and balled up fists.
"It's okay Eddie." Iassure him and I try to plead him with my eyes. I'm trying to tell him it's okay and to relax. He nods with what I think is understanding and walks away. Jake leads me to the corner hallway where there aren't any more students and just him and I. "So what do you want?" I say angrily, i'm still mad at him for punching Eddie and not believing me.
"Look," He starts with a very sad look in his eyes. "I'm very sorry for everything. You were right, Iwas an idiot. " I don't say anything and just continue to look at him. "I don't know what I was thinking. I wasn't, to tell you the truth. "
"Yeah you weren't"
"You have every right to be mad at me. And trust me, I never ever meant to hurt you"
"I believe you" And I honestly did. No matter what he did to me and Jake I know that deep down he is the sweetest guy I've ever known. And technically, if he knew the truth about me and Kyle he would have every right to call me a whore like he did that night.
"But there's one more thing I need to tell you"
"And what's that"
"It's something about Kyle that you should know. He's not the guy you believe him to be" And with that I tightly grip my binder and hug it close to my chest and I begin to loose my breath.
Because if it deals with Kyle you never know.
