Chapter 18-

 

A'liyah- Colby stared at me, his jaw pratically dropped to the floor. I knew I shouldn't have told him. It's not that my mom is racist or has something against white people, it's just when my mom was little my grandma used to tell her the way white people used to treat her, and other black people. My grandma scared my mom with these stories, and mom was basically brainswashed. She would never call them out or anything, she just dosen't want me hanging out with them. "What the hell does me being white, have to do with anything? Colby said. "Nothing, it's just my mom has a trust issue with certain people. "Wow, your mom is racist, and you can just say she has  trust issues with white people, stop trying  to fucking sugarcoat it." I started getting angry then. "I'm not trying to sugarcoat anything, It's not like I agree with her. "Oh really, you don't agree with your mom, you wouldn't have lied to her if you didn't agree with her". "If I agreed with my mom, I wouldn't have came here with you, I wouldn't have talked to you at all.

 

"And the only reason I lied to her was because it didn't matter what color you are, she dosen't want me hanging around any guy, she dosen't want me to be distracted from going to high school with good grades. "That's bullshit and you know it". Colby looks down and looks back up at me with a look of realization on his face. "Did you come here with me, because you wanted to defy your mom?. "Do you hear yourself right now, who the hell do you think I am" I started yelling. I didn't want to make a big scene and disturb anyone, but Colby was being so difficult. I didn't want to fight, and make the situation worse. "I would never in any kind of way, talk to you, because I'm trying to rebel against my mom, Im not like that. He started to laugh really hard. "You expect me to believe that, if you wanna go against what your mom is saying then go for it, but don't use me to do it". I snapped my face up at him, angry. "Who the fuck, do you think you are? I started yelling. "I shouldn't have came here with you today, I should have stayed at home".  I shouldn't have said the next part, but I was just so tired of Colby's bullshit. "I don't know who your dad is, but he would've been so ashamed of the way you're acting right now". 

 

At the mention of his dad, his face  got so red I thought he was going to explode. I got up, and he followed me backing me up against a wall. "Don't you ever talk about my fucking dad again, do you understand me, it's none of your fucking buisness. "You're such a bitch, acting like you know everything when you don't know shit". "I can't just take you to a special place. "My fucking special place where I usually always go alone, I shouldn't have fucking brought you here". I looked up at him with tears streaming down my face, what I said about his dad triggered him, and made him lash out. I didn't understand what was making him so angry about his dad, but at this point I didn't care anymore. With tears still streaming down my face, I decided that it was best to leave, I didn't want to be here anymore. What's supposed to be a magical and special place, Colby just ruined it for me. I moved away from him and went to get my sandals, and put them on. "Where the hell are you going, we still have another hour in here. "I'm leaving, I'm sick of putting up with your bullshit Colby. "My bullshit, you were the one that fucking started this, things were going good until you brought up that shit about my dad" he yelled. "No, things were going good until you called my mom racist you asshole". "Oh wow, so now I'm an asshole, and I didn't call your mom racist, I just stated that she sounds like she is. I wanted to reach over and slap the shit out of him, like I did the other day. 

 

I was really considering doing it too, but something deep inside of me told me that if I did things were only going to get worse. "We only have another hour in here, lets just enjoy it". "Are you out of your fucking mind, I'm not staying in here with you I'm leaving right now. "No, you're not leaving I paid for us to stay for two hours and were staying. "I'm not staying here with you, I"ll pay you back for this place, but I refuse to stay in here and fight with you". I was drained emotionally and it had only been an hour, I just wanted to get away from him. "You don't have to pay me back, because you're staying here A'liyah. "You're insane, uttertly insane. I stood up, after putting my sandals on and headed for the door. But as I got to the door, I felt his hand pull my arm. I turned around and he grabbed me and pulled me to him. "I said you're staying here" he whispered. He cupped my face in his hands and rubbed his fingers on my face. "What makes you think I'm gonna stay I whisper as well". "Because we both know, we can't stay away from each other", and with that he bends his head down, and kisses me.
