I caught my breath as I my heart was vigorously beating. I didn't know what to say. He was so beautiful in his velvet tuxedo. I wanted to go up their and kiss him and caress his cheek. But then I reminded myself that I wasn't his. He wasn't mine. He was Julia's. And she was his. It hurt so bad. Even more when he broke up with me for the skank but to see such a good guy go to such a, slut, it just tore my heart in two. We were supposed to be soulmates. He promised he would always love me and someday he said and I quote “Livvy someday, I love you so much we're gonna get married. Sweetie I promise. Come on honey let me take you home.” I have let the tears in for so long. For three years. And now to see him grinding and feeling up another girl at the prom I just let them out. I let them flow. I let my mascara run down my cheeks. I let my eyeliner smudge. I bet I looked like a freaking circus clown right now. I heard people laughing. I saw them pointing. And I saw him walk towards me.
“Joe what are you doing?” Julia snapped. “Look it's our song! Come on baby dance with me.”
“Wait one second Julia,” he sighed. “Livvy are you okay?”
He put his arm around me.
“It's Olivia,” I glared at him.
“Aw come on why are you so mad?” he asked wiping tears and mascara off my cheek.
“You broke it,” I whimpered.
“What did I break swe- Olivia?” he asked.
“You said you would always love me and you would want to marry me someday,” I cried. “And you left me for that.. for that.. SKANK! Julia.”
Peoples heads turned and looked at me.
“Joe babe come on,” Julia dragged him.
He shoved her off. “Wait.”
“I just wanted to remind you of those four hours in the hot tub honey,” Julia giggled.
“I just wanted to remind him of those eight hours in the hot tub,” I giggled right back.
“Look Livvy I never broke our promise I still love you,” John caressed my hair so sweetly.
“But then why did you break up with me for her?” I asked.
“Because... We were about to go to college and I didn't wanna leave you honey. So I just experimented with other girls to get over you.”
“So I was just to get over her?” Julia asked.
“At first but then I started to like you,” he admitted.
“But you said you only dated her to get over me and now you say you love her?” I cried.
“No Livvy I liked her. You are the only one I loved in my life,” he said.
“Aw honey,” I put my head on his shoulder.
“Well besides my ma and pa and family,” he said.
I giggled and said, “So this means someday we will get married?”
“Yeah but what college are you going to?” he asked.
“Um either Kenyon, Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Santa Cruz, BU, BC, RISD, Bennington, MassArt, MassBay or Brandeis.”
“Wow that's a lot of choices honey uh I didn't get into Princeton, Harvard or Yale. But I really wanna go to Bennington.”
“Okay,” I smiled. “That's where we'll go.”
“Um excuse me,” Julia coughed. “He hasn't o-ficcialy broken up with me so JoeBear your not going anywhere with that slut.”
“Excuse me?” Joe coughed. “It's Joe not JoeBear and fine one last dance before we're over then we're over with and done.”
They started grinding again. Boy I thought he could be serious but no he had to dance with little miss-
BAM! He punched her in the mouth.
“Now where over. Never insult Livvy again you skank!” He yelled.
“Ow ow ow Joe that hurts JoeBear help me up,” she whined.
“I told you it's JOE,” he yelled and walked to me.
We linked arms and ran off back to my house. He put his arms around my waist and I put my arms around his neck.
“Livvy I promise to never break the promise again,” he said.
“You sure Joe?” I asked.
“Yeah let's seal it with a k-” he started to say but I cut him off grabbing his shirt collar, pulling him in and kissing him while our chests were against each others. I could feel his heart beating and I could hear mine.
“Iss,” he finished.
“I love you,” I said as my my head into his neck.
“Me too,” he smiled. “And babe don't you ever forget it.”
“Never.”
