Chapter 5

A'liyah- "We can't just just be friends, you know that don't you? His lips touch my skin, making me tremble. He continues a line of kisses along my jawline and I nod. I know he is right. I have no idea what this is that we are, but I know I will never be able to only be friends with Hardin. As his lips touch the spot just below my ear, I moan, promting Hardin to do it again, this time sucking the skin. 'The first time that Tessa realized her and hardin, were more than friends. Sometimes I wish my life could be like theirs, not the toxic relationship, but the love and affection he gave Tessa. I don't think I would ever get that from another guy, mainly becaue I'm not romantic and I don't know the first thing about relationships. I want a guy that will love me, respect me, and be there for me. Colby would never ever be that for me, I would never even want to be his girlfriend. He"ll probably be one of those guys that winds up with a girl that will kiss his ass just to be with him.

 

That will never ever be me, I need to stop thinking about him anyway. I go to my call list and decide to call my mom to see if maybe she's  got the car fixed, and is on her way. I call and the phone rings and rings, but she dosen't pick up, so I decide to text her. "Hey mom, I'm outside waiting for you call me back whenever u can love u. I decide that since my mom is probably going to be a while, I'll just walk around. "I get up and put my backpack on, and put my phone in my back pocket. I start walking in the direction of the science building, where the beautiful flowers are starting to blossom. I bend down to look at the beautiful colors, and patterns on them when I see him. Colby standing there, talking to some girl. I get up and stand back behind the building wall so he won't see me. The last thing I wanted, was for Colby to see me and embarrass me in front of someone else. I wanted to just leave and walk away, but something in my gut told me to stay and listen. 

 

"Colby look, mom just wants you to do better." She wants you to have a better life than she did. You need to stop talking bad about her when all she wants you to do is be a better person. I need to tell you this, dad would not have wanted you to be like this."Shut the fuck up and don't talk about him Colby said. " You weren't there so you don't know shit. Look, the girl said talking again I know I left or whatever but dad would've have been so dissapointed in you, for not only failing but acting like a dumbass. "Don't ruin his memory by acting like this." I have to go and pick up Olly, but we're not done having this conversation, I love you". I saw the girl kiss him on his cheek, and get in her car and drive away. So many questions were storming in my mind. Was that girl his sister? What kind of stuff was Colby doing that was so bad? What happened to his dad? And why did Colby act that way? Thinking about all of it had me feeling sorry for him. What had he been through? Did whatever happen cause him to act like that? As much as I felt bad, I felt even worse for having heard that conversation.

 

It was private, and I should have left. It wasn't for me to hear deciding that leaving would be a good option, I started to walk away from the building and back to the parking lot but when I turned around, I saw him looking at me. And with the anger I saw on his face, I knew he heard me eavsdropping on him and whoever that girl was. And I knew that he was going to get in a screaming match with me, one that I wasn't prepared to have right now.
