Ch.7 The Reasons Why
I don’t know what came over me when I immediately agreed with Kyle, it must be my growing infatuation for him, other than that, I don’t know. So I hurried inside the house to look for Jake, which I find talking to one of his friends. I pass through all the people gyrating and finally make my way over to him.
“Jake” I say tapping his shoulder. He quickly turns around and shows me his best smile. I hate when he does that because I feel like my heart melts. Cheesy, I know.
“Babe” He says while giving me his full attention and leaving his friend hanging.
“Yeah, uhm, I don’t feel so good, so I think I’m going to head out.” I tell him feeling a pang of guilt.
“You do?” he says with a look of concern. He touches my shoulder gently trying to console me. “let me take you home then”
“No!” I shriek. In realization I look around and notice people staring at me, so thenIwhisper no and this time I make sure I don’t attract attention to myself. “I’ll walk, I think walking will do me some good”
“Okay then” He replies and leans in to give me a soft peck. I disappear out of his sight and go back to the backyard. I scan the place but don’ see Kyle. I do spot somebody that knows him, and that may know where he is.
“Hey Chris, have you seen Kyle? He was here a minute ago.” I ask him.
“Yeah” he says and looks around for a second. “I think he left already”
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah he said something about having better places to go, you know how he is” He responded. And then it hit me, no I don’t know him. He’s a complete stranger to me, a stranger that I’ve lost my virginity to. All I know is that he works and owns a car. I see Chris walk away and I stay there dumbfounded. I know nothing about Kyle, not even his last name. What have I gotten myself into! Not only am I dumbfounded at my realization, I’m angry at him for leaving me. He left me after I said I would be back. Not only is he a stranger in my life, he is also an asshole forlying tome.
I rush back inside and I find Jake once again.
“Babe, I thought you left.” he tells me when I get to him.
“Stacy gave me painkillers and I feel much better now.”
“Well that’s good”
“Totally. Let’s get the hell out of here.” I tell him. He looks at me a bit confused but agrees. We get into his car and he starts the engine.
“Just drive, I know the perfect place.”
We ended up going to the most romantic place I know, and something I recently discovered. The place where Kyle took me yesterday. It’s risky, I know. He can show up whenever he wants and find me andJake together, and part of me wishes he would. Good thing I remember how to get there because my plan would have failed. We pull up close to the exact same spot Kyle pulled up, and I quickly get out of the car and run to Jake who is on the other side of the car. I kiss him passionately and tug his hand leading him into the lake.
“Hun, where exactly are we going?” Jake asks impatiently.
“You’ll see” I say sweetly. As we get closer I hear moans and whispers. “Jake stop” Iorder him. “Stay there” I tell him again and I slowly and quietly walk to the noise and hide between bushes and trees.
“You don’t know how much I’ve waited for this”
“You don’t either” I hear a male and female say. I move the branch out of my eye sight and discover an awful scene. Kyle and some girl making out in the hood of his car. My heart breaks and to my dismay I don’t turn away. I keep looking at them like if I want to hurt.
“I didn’t think you’d come when I called you” the blonde haired girl said.
‘It’s you, Jocelyn of course I’d come” Kyle told her and proceeded to kiss her in her neck, a moan escaped from her lips and that’s when I no longer could take it. I ran. I ran to Jake. I ran away from him. And I never looked back.
