Chapter 25

 

A'liyah- I didn't know how I did it but I made it through the school day without crying again. It felt like I was a robot in my own body, doing my work and just sitting there when I finished. I was so hurt, and upset. How could Colby do that to me, I thought we were doing fine. I thought our relationship was blossoming into more. It was a slap in the face, I was so stupid to think me and him would ever be anything more. I was stupid to even get involved with him in the first place.

 

I didn't even understand what he meant by he had issues and problems. What issues and problems, was it about his dad? What happened to him? Well I was going to stop thinking about him, and forget about him. But I just knew I couldn't. He already had my heart, and he was already crushing it. It was scary to think about the power he had over me, and the control he had over my heart. It was all just so confusing and so frustrating, was love even supposed to be like this?".

 

I honestly thought I was going to have a panic attack when I saw him in gym class earlier, but he just ignored me, and pretended like I didn't exist. And the worst part about it all was that he was talking to the other girls in my class, he even looked back at me with an evil grin. I wanted to cry then over what he was doing, and why he was hurting me. But I stayed strong, and did my excercises for the pacer test that was coming up. I really wish Melissa was here, we would be talking and laughing at a joke she said. I couldn't wait until she came back, hopefully we'll make up and things will be okay. And when she does, she"ll be back in time for the pacer test, which I know she will do great on.

 

When I went home, I went straight upsatirs, fell on my bed and cried. Why was I being so stupid and dumb over this. I should forget about him, and focus on my life. I wish it was easy, I wish I could ignore the aching in my heart, but it was so hard. I put my face in my pillow to muffle my sounds, and bawled my eyes out. I haven't cried this much since I was little, and it was getting tiring. As the tears poured down and sleepiness set in I let it come with open arms. 

 

The rest of the week went by with me putting on fake smiles in front of my family, completing school work, and reading the rest of After. I wish I had the books, instead of reading it on my phone, but I had to order it and ship it online, and that would cost a lot of money. I couldn't wait to turn sixteen and get my own job, me and Melissa are planing on working at Mcdonalds. Once I start makng my own money, I'll be able to make buy what I want, and give some money  to mom as well. Friday came and went back quickly, and I was so excited for my birthday. Mom had everything planned, and ready. Yeterday we went to the mall to buy bikini's. I tried on a few and when I tried on the black one she said it was perfect for me. I tried to tell her that it wouldn't look right on me, but she insisted that it would look beautiful on me, so we winded up getting it.

 

I was laying in bed when my phone started ringing, it was from Colby. My heart started pounding fast. I didn't know why he was calling, he made it perfectly clear that me we should stay away from each other. I debated on answering his call or not, but my hand moved to the answer button before my mind could register it.
