Clarissa and Matt continued seeing each other but she made sure nothing happened between them the reason was because she had a boyfriend and she knew doing something with Matt meant cheating on him and Matt never understood why she refused him because she never told him about her boyfriend. Clarissa's new boyfriend is called Han. Han was a year older than Matt he is a sweet guy and he beliefs is similar to that of Clarissa maybe that's why she liked him. Clarissa made sure to make this relationship work since the last one she had failed. Clarissa is happy in her new relationship her and Han talked every day in the beginning there was no drama only love they both talked about their future and everything else they could talk about. But Clarissa never told Han about Matt because she felt that will change the way Han feel about her. Taking a good look at Clarissa she had a beautiful innocent face and a good home training at least that's what most people notice when they see her but deep down Clarissa thought she was not all that "the goody goody girl"

Months later, Han broke up with Clarissa because he went back to his ex-girlfriend. Clarissa didn’t feel too bad about it because before they broke up, she noticed that her feelings for him changed and she began to even question if she loved him at all. Within that week she and Matt had an argument about something which turned out to be her fault and Matt decided he wanted some space to cool off so he stopped calling her for a little while during those periods, Clarissa felt the worst pain she has ever experienced she felt like she had lost him even though she hasn’t Clarissa now realized that she wants Matt to be part of her life forever because she loved him too much to let go. Clarissa went back to Matt and for the first time in the one year she had known him she had sex with him. It happened when she was supposed to stay at a friend's house and she called Matt to know if he could drop her off but somehow he managed to convince her to stay at his house instead. She did not plan for it to happen it just sort of happened I guess it’s because she did not really care. She did not even feel different after that and Matt never said anything about it he just acted as if it wasn't a big deal Clarissa wasn't happy about this but she just kept quiet. There were times when she will call him when she knows he is not at work but he won't answer and then he will call back the next day and give a reasonable excuse. So one day Clarissa decided to pay him a surprise visit to his house and she found a girl who was his neighbor in his house she was clothed but Matt was shirtless he was wearing only his shorts. Matt smiled when he saw he said he was happy she was here and Clarissa asked why he was shirtless he responded that he was about to put on clothes besides he wasn't naked. Clarissa chose not to say anything else about it but in her mind she suspected that maybe something was going on between them.

Clarissa had church the next day; she didn't really want to go because she felt empty especially since she hasn't heard from Matt. Matt still didn't call that Sunday. After two days of waiting to hear from Matt, Clarissa decided to call him on Wednesday he sounded excited to hear from her and accused her of forgetting about him Clarissa felt really angry with Matt when he said that but she decided to ignore it. Matt asked to see her the next day which Clarissa agreed to. She went to bed with a smile on her face knowing that she was going to see the guy she was crazy about the next day. When she saw him the next day, she never said anything about the fact that she was bothered about the girl she saw at his house the other day she didn't want to seem insecure and frankly she was getting tired of confronting Matt about things like that. Clarissa knew that if she had a friend who was in her shoes she would be angry with the friend for still putting up with Matt. but Clarissa have come to realize that whether she wants it or not she can't get rid of Matt because it seems anytime she finally finds a way to break free that's when he calls her and then she falls right back for him. Now Matt is a good responsible guy he got a good job and house with two cars. He just thinks he needs to achieve more.

So, things were going great between Clarissa and Matt. They went out to places, did things couples do, have sex and then came the shocker. Clarissa found out that Matt has had sex with the neighbor she saw at his house. She saw their text message on his phone. The funny thing was that Clarissa didn't know if she should be angry at Matt or not. She just had feelings which were neither anger, sadness nor happiness. But she decided to confront him about it because in her mind she didn't want to be a dumb girl. Matt told her that was a long time ago and that he doesn't have anything to do with her and it only happened because she liked him. Clarissa then decided not to push the topic any further because she felt she didn't care anymore but her actions contradicted what she thought. Matt noticed it and told her that he has explained himself and he is not going to say anything more about it. When Clarissa got home that day, she thought of everything that happened and she was really upset about it but she was also happy that Matt kissed her before she left so in her mind they made up.

Clarissa was talking to Matt on the phone when her father walked in to tell her that dinner was ready. Clarissa's father has been suspecting that something is going on with her and he tried talking to her that she should feel free to tell him what was going on but Clarissa never told him anything. Quickly ending the call, Clarissa rushed out of her room to get her food when she was going back to her room she realize that she actually loved talking to Matt. In fact she loved everything about him his voice the way he smile some of the things he tells her like how much he appreciates her and how beautiful she is. Sometimes in class, on the bus or when she is walking or listening to music she thinks about Matt. She thinks of them together or some fun things she did with him or a compliment he gave her and a crazy thing he did. Clarissa knew Matt was kinda like a bad boy and lately she has been thinking if that's why she likes him. 

The next day after school, Clarissa decided to pay Matt a surprise visit. Matt seemed happy to see her. They had dinner together and lots of sex. Then Clarissa found out that Matt recently spoke to his ex-girlfriend at first he tried to avoid confirming it. This made Clarissa really mad because she just got so fed up of him not being straight with her. After he dropped her home, Matt didn’t even make effort to try and settle things between them. Clarissa went home really sad and wondered if she really mattered to him at all. She thought of the argument they had. “Just stop talking and listen” Matt said. “Oh really okay fine, tell me the excuse you have this time. Why can’t you just answer a question without trying to avoid it?” Clarissa exclaimed. Then Matt said something that really drove her mad and speechless “it is not your business if I talk to her”. Clarissa didn’t know how to respond to him because she still wasn’t clear if they were dating or not although he tried to tell her what they talked about but she was just too mad to listen.

Matt never called Clarissa days after the argument and she knew that was what was going to happen. So she decided not to call him too. She felt that she is the only one always trying to save the relationship if they even had one. This time is going to be different she thought to herself. Clarissa went on with her life although it was really difficult for her because for some reason it was hard for her to pull herself away from thinking about Matt. Weeks passed and she was still sad that she hasn’t spoken to him she went from sadness to anger that he won’t even try to call her. She started to think it might be because she has had sex with him because she read somewhere that girls become attached to guys after being intimate with them. She also hated the fact that it happened but she does not think of it too much because she can’t undo what has happened.
