Chapter 10

Andy’s POV:

Did… did that just happen?

I didn’t understand what had just happened. Betty suddenly confessed her love for me, but how do I feel about her?

I gently pressed my finger tips on my lips. “She even went as far as kissing me.” I whispered to myself, still completely confused by what had happened. “What do I do?” I asked myself. “I don’t want to hurt Betty, but I’m still in love with Jessica.” Why did Betty have to do this to me? I already had enough on my plate without her adding to it.

The next day I walked into school. I think it’s safe to assume that Betty won’t be showing up. “About time you got here. God, you’re so damn slow.” What? Betty is here? She seams to be acting normal, should I act normal to?

Her and Stephanie turned around and started to walk away. What should I do? What should I say? “Roy!” Stephanie yelled, waving at that guy when he entered the school.

Stephanie took off and left me alone with Betty. Yeah, this wasn’t awkward at all. “Um… Betty?” I muttered under my breath just loud enough for her to hear me.

“What is it?” She replied.

“About last night…”

“Last night? You know about last night?” She asked.

“Of course I know. I was there remember?” I asked in confusion.

“Listen you!” Betty said with a frightening voice. “I don’t want anyone to know about my date last night. I can’t remember much about what happened. All I know is I had a few drinks, and the guy I was with was a jerk. So don't say a word about this to anyone. Got it?”

What? She was drunk and now she can’t remember? So, she didn’t really mean what she said last night. Since she doesn’t remember I’ll just agree with what she said. “I won’t tell a soul.”

“You had better not or all that will be left of you is your soul. Get it?”

“Got it.”

“Good.” I was so relieved that Betty didn’t have any feelings for me. Things are complicated enough as it is. At least now I can continue focusing on Jessica. I still haven’t figured out what to do about her and Roy. Where is she this morning anyway?

Betty’s POV:

Did he buy it? Am I in the clear?

I looked at Andy and saw he was much less tense then he was a second ago. I guess this means it worked. Still, as much as last night was a mistake, I can’t help but think about the kiss I gave Andy. It just felt so right. Like my lips were meant for his and his for mine. But I need to stop thinking this way. There’s no way that Andy would chose me over Jessica. I don’t mind, as long as he’s happy, I’m content with leaving things as they are.

I would like to believe that but the kiss last night was stuck on my mind. Because of that one moment of weakness I can feel myself yearning for him, as if I was a drug addict and he was my drug. I want to fight my feelings for him because I know we were never meant to be. But now I feel as though there's a new hole in my life, and this one overlaps the one that was already there.

I wonder if he thought about me the same way he thinks about Jessica. Here I go again thinking about things I shouldn't be. What am I doing? Ever since I kissed him, my thought's are all about what if. What if he does think of me in that way? What if I can be the one for him? What if he did choose me over Jessica? I don't want to be thinking like this but at the same time, I can't bring myself to regret the kiss.

Here I go, I'm back at the kiss. Why do things have to be so complicated? Why do...

“Betty?” Stephanie said sounding worried. “Is everything alright?”

I force my fake smile, and look happily towards Stephanie. “I'm fine. Why wouldn't I be?”

“You seem a little off today, and you haven't eaten any of your lunch.”

Lunch? It's lunch time? How did I get here? Did I set myself to autopilot or something?

“Earth to Betty, come in Betty.”

“What, oh, sorry, I…. um…. I have to go. I’ll see you guys later.”

I quickly got up out of my seat and walked away. I can’t be around them right now. I need time to think.

After a few minutes of walking, I found myself outside the school. I took a seat on a bench and tried to figure things out. That’s what I wanted to do but all I id was think about the kiss. It was our first and last kiss.

As I thought about that fact, I felt my eyes water. Tears were swiftly rolling down my cheeks and I was just about ready to burst.

“Betty?” A familiar voice said behind me.

“Stephanie? What are you doing here?”

“I came to check on you. You’ve been acting strange lately. Did something happen?” She asked concern thick in her voice.

“I’m fine. There’s nothing for you to worry about.”

“Is it about Andy?” The question echoed through my ears as I began to realize what she had just asked.

“Andy? Why would Andy be bothering…”

“I realized it a long time ago Betty.” Those words took me even more by surprise than the question. “You’re in love with Andy right?”

“W…what? What are…” I can feel myself breaking down. “What are you talking about?” I fell to the ground unable to stop myself from crying. Stephanie quickly embraced me, trying to calm me down.

“It’s alright Betty, It’s alright. You can let it out.”
