The Story of Us
“Sky hurry up! We’re going to miss the entire movie!” I yelled walking into the Saunders’s house. “Once second! I have to finish curling my hair.” Sky hollered back.
I sauntered into kitchen to grab a bottle of water, but stopped in my tracks when I noticed Caleb, his hair scuffed up, head lying on the table.
I quietly walked up to him, and sat in a chair across from him. I reached across the table, lightly touching his arm. Her jerked up. His eyes were red, and he was wearing the same this he wore yesterday, except his clothes were all wrinkled.
“Caleb what’s wrong?”A frown quickly formed on his face. “Nothing…I’m just sick.” He mumbled. He started to get up but I quickly grabbed his arm.
“C’mon Caleb, we’ve known each other for years. Don’t lie to me.” I said pulling a smile.
He sighed “I sort of possibly… got Hallie.. um pregnant.” He muttered under his breath. I felt my jaw drop. “What?!” I exclaimed loudly. Caleb quickly placed his hand over my mouth.
“Ssh! I still haven’t told my parents or Sky.” He whispered.
I yanked his hand off me. “Damnit!Caleb! How could you let this happen?!”
“Well I didn’t always use)protection.” He muttered letting his head drop. “What am I supposed to do?” He asked right as Sky walked in.
“I’m ready!” She smiled, completely oblivious to the situation.
“I’ll talk to you later, Caleb.” I told him, following Sky out of the door.
*Caleb’s Point of View*
“So you wanted to talk?” I said to Hallie, motioning for her to sit on the couch.
I sat across from her, and studied her. He face was make-up less, and she had huge bag under her eyes just like me.
“Um yeah about a couple of things actually.” Hallie held a tight smile on her face. “First of all, I have a um pregnancy test. And I was hoping we could wait for the results…together.” Her voice was quivering.
“Sure if that’s you want to do.” I replied.
“And their one more thing…please don’t get mad.” Hallie said not looking me in the eyes. “There’s a possibility that if I’m pregnant, that the baby…isn’t yours-“
“What?” I said clenching my fist.
“I sort of hooked up with Chris a few times.” She muttered forming in her eyes.
“Wait Chris? Do you mean Chris Jones??” I yelled towering over her.
“Yes Chris Jones.” She sobbed refusing to look at me.
“Let me get this-fucking0straight. You cheated on me with one of my best0fucking friends, and might be pregnant with his baby!?” I yelled my body shaking with anger.
She slowly shook her head, word refused to come out of her mouth.
“Get out of my house.” I whispered, turning away from her.
“Caleb please..” She sobbed grabbing onto my arm.
“Get the)hell out!” I screamed, turning and yanking her off me. “We don’t Hallie! Done! Call me in nine months and let me know if im a dad!” I growled.
She scrambled out of my house. I looked out the window, watching her drive away in the distance.
*Amanda’s Point of View*
I knocked on Caleb’s bedroom door. It had been a week since we last talked. A week since I found out Caleb possibly knocked up Hallie.
“Um it’s me, Amanda.” The door flung open a few seconds later. He half smiled when he saw me. “Hi Amanda” he said pulling me into a hug. When he pulled away, I saw his hand, all bandaged up.
“What happened to your hand?” I gasped, grabbing it. He winced pulling it away from me. “It’s a long story.” He mumbled. “A long story I want to hear.” I replied. I grabbed his hand, and led him to his bed, and sat down next to him.
“Fine. Well Hallie came over the other day and said she had a pregnancy test. Then she told me the baby might not even be mine. She said it could be one of my best friends’ Chris. I went psycho on her and broke up with her.” Caleb said. “And I was so mad I sort of punched a hole in my bathroom wall.” He added.
“Oh my gosh Caleb I so sorry.” I pulled him into a hug.
“She texted me last night, telling me it was a false alarm. Thank God, because I never want to deal with her again.”
I let out a little laugh. “Well now that you’re single, is there any other girl you have your eye on?”
“Actually yeah there is, but she already has a boyfriend, and either way she’s kind of off limits. So I guess for know I’m going solo.”
Well now Hallie’s out of the way ;). Anyways I have to go back to school tomorrow. Spring Break I loved you while you were here, and will miss you while you’re gone.
