HOW COULD SHE!? SHE KNOWS HOW MUCH I LIKE HIM AND CARE ABOUT HIM, WHAT A B!TCH! WHY WOULD SHE DO THIS TO ME? I started to cry, grabbed my things and ran home.

(Lily’s POV)

I got into the pool and started swimming laps when I felt someone tugging on my leg, I knew it was James so I tried to keep swimming and tried to get out of his grip, he was too strong. I gave up after about 5 minutes of trying and he lifted me up, upside down, only holding one foot. I tried to splash him for another 5 minutes and he let go, as I got to the surface, I was about an inch away from his face. I stared into his eyes and he stared into mine, then he leaned in and kissed me. I didn’t mind for a bit then remembered Jen. HOW COULD I DO THIS TO HER? So I pulled away but it was too late, I saw her running home with her face in her hands. I really screwed up this time.

(Jennifer’s POV)

I got home and flopped onto my bed and started crying. After I had stopped crying, I was just laying on my bed, hugging my arms when I heard a knock on the door.

“WHAT?!” I shouted out.

“Could you keep it down in there, I’m trying to talk on the phone!”

“I’m not in the mood for your whining Honey!” As I said that, she flung open the door and took one step in; I looked up from within the gap between my stomach and legs and frowned.

“Aww, poor baby, so sad...What happened this time? Dumped AGAIN? When will you learn that you will NEVER get a man?” She said with a taunting voice. That just set of my bomb. I got out of bed, walked up to Honey and punched her right in the eye. She fell backwards and started crying, not that I cared but Mum and Dad came rushing up to see what had happened. I quickly kicked her out of my room, which made her cry more, slammed my door shut and got back into my position of hugging my legs and put on a sad face and made myself cry again. Next all I heard were gasps from mum and “What happened? Are you alright?” from dad.

The next thing I knew, they were pounding on my door.

“JENNIFER! OPEN THIS DOOR RIGHT NOW!”

“I’m not in the mood for you guys right now!” I shouted back at them.

“I DON’T GIVE A F*** ABOUT WHAT MOOD YOU ARE IN JUST OPEN THE DOOR RIGHT THIS INSTANT!” Far out, agro mum much? I moaned and schlepped my way to the door and opened it with my cutest puppy dog face on and a tear strolling down my cheek.

“What is wrong with you? Why would you do something like this to your sister?!” She said, trying her hardest not to scream at me.

“You should’ve heard what she said to me!” I said with more tears streaming down my cheek. “What did she say; I’d like to hear this.”

“I just found the love of my life kissing my best friend and she told me to get over it and learn that I’ll never get a man.” I thought she would be a bit more sympathetic but instead she just rolled her eyes.

“That is no excuse for hurting your sister; you’re taking your anger out on her which isn’t right. You’re grounded for 2 weeks!” What is my mum’s problem, if Honey was in my position, mum would be pulling her into a huge bear hug right about now. But no, she just had to hate me. Honey keeps telling me that I was the accident because I came out second, which is complete bullshit though, as if.

After mum walked out of the room carrying Honey, I moaned and fell onto my bed. My life is a living hell. Suddenly, my phone rang. Lily. I did NOT want to talk to her right now.
