Ch. 8 How to Deal

Eve decided that she would not miss any class time, so she gathered all her courage and prepared for her second day of school. Last night after Charlotte came to the room she told her all that happened with Johnson and she too, believed she should report him, but she also understood why Eve wouldn't do so. And so this morning was very hard for her to get up and get dressed. She went to her first, second, and third period just fine. But she knew she would not be okay when she went to her fourth period. She walked excruciatingly slowy to Johnons's class, watching as people sped by her, she gripped her binder tightly pushing it up agaisnt her chest. She looked only straight ahead, bracing herself to what was to come.

When she passed by Matt's locker she looked to it, seeing that he was standing there taking some books out. He grabbed a couple of things and headed for the bathroom. She needed to talk to him pronto, she felt like a such a jerk, she did not act like a friend, she acted like a mom. So she picked up her pace and followed him up until she reached the front of the bathroom door. She had to go in and talk to him, so she did something that she would have never done. She went inside the boys bathroom.

Matt was there gulping down something made out of glass and she instantly knew what it was. She didn't have to say anything at all Matt saw her there. He put the bottle down and turned to face her.

"What?" He asked rudely. She shifted her gaze over to the bottle of vodka but didn't say anything about it. She walked towards him readying her self for her apology. She grabbed his hand and twirled her fingers with his.

"I'm sorry" She told him. He took back his hand and stepped away from her.

"What the hell are you doing here?" He asked her as he washed his hands roughly.

"I wanted to apologize" She said searching for his eyes. When he was done washing his hands he dried them with a paper towel and then pressed his hands in the counter.

"You just did" She grabbed his arm and forced him to face her.

"I was such a jerk to you, you didn't deserve that at all" They both gazed into each others eyes until Matt spoke.

"Report him" She let go of his arm and kissed his cheek.

"I have to go now, I'll be late if I don't" That was her attempt to avoind the conversation, in reality she was in no hurry to go to her fourth period class. She headed for the door and walked out. She walked fast and showed up to her class two seconds before the bell rang. She made hre way to her seat, sat down, and took out her notebook from her Marc Jacobs bag. Oh how she idolized Marc Jacobs, once she had met him in New York fashion week and she wondered if it was possible to ever lust for a gay man.

The situation she was in, was terrible, being in the classroom of the man who attempted to rape you the day prior, is definitely not what a person wants. She avoided eye contact and stuck to taking notes and listening carefully. Inside, she was miserable. She felt like crying, yelling, hitting him with a baseball bat, but she knew she could not act on those things. She also felt pathetic, her position in all of this was pathetic. She couldn't do anything about it and despite arguing with Phoenix, Matt, and Charlotte about the action she would take against him--which were none--she wished with all her heart she could report him.

Johnson came around the class and passed out papers, when he came to her desk, he laid the paper in her desk gently and carefully. When she reached to get it a tiny piece of paper came out of it. It read, I'm sorry. Let me make it up to you. She wrinkled the paper into a ball and placed it on her desk so he could see. This was no, sorry for not calling you last night, this was serious! And if he thought he could get away with it with merely a sorry, he was so wrong.

It was now Friday night. Which only meant one thing. Someone was having a party. A guy named Michael was hosting one up in his dorm, and Charlotte begged Eve to go and join her. She said this would be a good way to get her mind off things, so Eve gave in.

But Charlotte ran off with some guy and Eve was left alone. Parties weren't really her scene, especially if she was alone. She felt very uncomfortable and decided to find Matt, maybe he wasn't angry anymore and they can leave this all behind. She went to the balcony and sure enough, there he was, making out with a blonde. Phoenix a couple of guys and girls were there too, all with cups in their hands clearly drunk. She wasn't sure if she should actually join them since Matt was in a compromising situation, so she hesitated but finally decided to join them.

"Eve!" Phoenix announced before she could speak. She turned to look at him and noticed he was smiling widely. Matt tore away from the blonde and took a big sip of his drink.

"Wow, Ididn't think you would show up. You always were a prude" Matt said and everyone except Phoenix laughed. Eve, after he said that, felt very hurt. Sure he was drunk but drunks never lied.

'Matt" she said "Can I talk to you"

"Oh, are you going to forbid me from drinking, or some shit like that" Heheldon tightly to the girl by her waist and the girl just kept giggling at everything he said. She turned to walk away but a hand grabbed her had to stop her from walking any further.

"Okay, let's talk" Matt said held her hand and led her out. They went inside the bedroom that wasn't occupied with people making out. "What is it?" he slurred

"Do Ireally need an excuse to talk to my best friend" She told him and slowly approached him. "I just want to spend time with you Matt, is that so hard to believe?" she giggled. She felt like they needed some bonding time, and this was the perfect time. Yeah he was mean to her 5 seconds ago, but she's been mean too in the past. Matt sighed deeply and sat in the edge of the bed. As he rubbed his temples Eve sat next to him.

"We're all screwed up, aren't we?" She asked him and hugged his shoulders. Sheset her head on his shoulder and breathed in his scent. She was absolutely positive he had splurged on colon in France.

"Yeah" He told her and stood up and started pacing. The booze was getting to him, he could already feel the rush. In order to calm down he stopped and tried to stay still for a while. Eve came up from behind him and wrapped her arms around his stomach. Matt tensed up, and his mind went blank.

"I hope we're okay" she whispered into his ear. Matt was getting, well let's say, excited.

"We're more than okay"he replied automatically. He felt the sudden urge to do things to her, and he was unsure if he could contain himself. Eve started nibbling his ear, and she had no idea why she was doing it. She never felt attracted to him, but she just felt the need to be close to him. Matt moaned softly and spun around to see her. He started kissing her neck and wrapped his hands around the lower of her back. Matt kissed her in a sensitive spot and heard her moan. Now he was excited. He pushed her back against a wall and began to be more aggressive. Matt had waited a long time for this moment to happen again and he was going to make sure it was memorable. Eve's hands began to ruffle his hair and felt total bliss. This was lovely for her. Matt kissed her lips, her jaw, neck, collarbone, anywhere he could get his lips to kiss. He lifted one of her legs up and she automatically wrapped it against his waist. She felt very ready for this and he did too. She could feel the bulge in his pants making her very hot. Boy was she heated. He started to take her shirt off and once it was Eve stiffened and stopped all her movements. "What's wrong?" Matt asked her as he noticed her unevenness.

"You are drunk, probably high, and we're best friends. We don't need a repeat of 8th grade year." She grabbed the her shirt that Matt had dropped on the floor and quickly put it back on. Matt stood there speechless, and every noise he made was a stutter. "Sorry" she said and as she was going to give him a kiss in the cheek she decided it wasn't the best thing to do right now. "Oh god, Matt say something. I'm really sorry I let it go this far. When you woke up tomorrow morning I'm positive you would have regretted it anyways." He stood there still not saying anything. She turned away and left.

"Oh my god, what I have done" she told herself as she rushed out. She was so busy cursing herself she didn't realize she had bumped into someone until the person said anything.

"Hey watch where-Eve" It was Phoenix standing talking to one of her classmates. "Are you in a rush?"

"Yeah I am" He kept with her as she left the room.

"Why is that?"

"Something to do with Matt"

"Matt, that guy is....something" He said walking next to her. He was walking her to her dorm building, that's all she could gather from his company. They were almost at the building it wasn't too far off so it was a relief for her, because she really had nothing in common with the guy. "How much do you know him"

"Pretty well, he's my best friend" she said.

"That statement alone tells me you don't"

"What do you mean?" she asked curiously as they came to a stop in the entrance of the building. It was already night and it looked very peaceful and scary at night. The woods around the school seem to hide evil, to her. She would not want to be there alone at night. Phoenix leaned against the wall and shoved his hands in his pocket, a move that sparked curiousity in Eve. "Well let's just say, Matt, hides things from you. Many of them actually, and you have no clue."

"What are those secrets?"

"Oh, they aren't for me to tell" he smirked. "Have a good night Miss Rosenthal" he said and tipped his imaginary hat. She watched him walk off to the darkness and wondered what he said was true. Phoenix was as the 'bad boy' of the school, so if there was someone she should mistrust it was him.

Would Matt really be capable ofkeeping things from her? Was their friendship that thin?

"Hello?" She said answering her phone after it buzzed a couple of times. "Hey Char...What happened?... wait calm down.....Char tell me.....What?!...I'm going back right now" She said and ran back to the boys dorm room. She knew this would happen one day.

He just never listened.

Oh no! Is Matt in trouble?!?! Or is Charlotte in trouble?! Ooohhh questions questions!
I like Phoenix, maybe more so than Matt-but he adores Eve, yet apparently he's hiding more secret from her, ooohhh but maybe one secret is that he loves her and she doesn't know! That would be nice instead of something horrendous! Lol!
