Dear Sky,
I’m sorry, but I feel like my heart is breaking into two because of you. There was nothing between us in the beginning and love was just a pathetic word that was used as an excuse for being together. Whenever we went on a date, my heart never fluttered like a real girl’s heart in love, and I felt like I was only a doll merely for decoration. Our kisses had no joy in them, our hugs had no feelings, even us holding hands, we didn’t react to the tingling sensation in our bodies. It’s not like our love dulled or anything, it just didn’t happen in the first place. I’m breaking up with you because I want you to find your true love, not someone like me where you have act like it. You’ll know what I mean when you find her, once again I’m sorry but I really found the one for me.

Your Old Friend,
Rena

My friend Gage handed me this letter saying it was from Rena. At first I was surprised why she asked Gage to give it to me when she could of done it herself, but I opened it anyway. If I knew from the start that this was going to be a break up letter, then I would of burned it to the ground by now. I threw the letter on my bed and picked up my cell phone, I noticed that there was a voice message for me but I didn’t bother to look. After punching in numbers, I waited for her soft, high pitched voice to answer. Nobody picked up the phone so my call got switched to the robot answering machine, where I hanged up. I called again to make sure she wasn’t there but still got the automatic voice machine, I called several more times and got the same reaction each as the others. There was no point in calling if the other person wouldn’t pick up, so I just sat down on my bed and reread the break up letter a couple more times while waiting for enough time to pass and call once more. The whole break up situation was so confusing to me and I just wanted to hear her voice explaining the reason why,I don’t want her letter full of pity or just a chat on our phones. I wanted us to talk face to face and looking straight into each others eye, physically. There was nothing much to do now that I’ve called much more than I meant to, so I played around and opened the unread message I left before. It was from her. I should of checked this in the first place, I pressed my cell harder to my ear to hear her voice carefully.

"Hi this is Rena. I wanted to say I’m sorry again about the letter and that even though this might be a tough time for you I was thinking..." Her voice became hesitant as she was deciding what to say next. "...that we could all meet each other as friends. I mean like you and me seeing my new boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend, who knows maybe you’ll like each other. So if you wanna come, we’re going to be at Star Buck’s at three o'clock this Saturday and hang as a group for the rest of the day. But if you can’t come, we’ll understand."

She rushed all this into a minute then hanged up. My mind was blank when she finished, I didn’t know if I wanted to go or not. Even if I have a reason not too, I guess I’m curious to know who stole Rena’s heart away. This was also a good time to talk to Rena but it was also bad to see her all lovey dovey over her new mate. As I was determining whether or not to go pacing back and forth in my room, my phone rang. When I checked who it was the name "Gage" appeared, he was a good friend of mine but was also the one who gave me Rena’s letter. I picked it up anyway, inquisitive when it rang after three times.

"Hey, what’s up Gage?" I answered.

"David, Marshall, and me, were planning to go to Skate World. Do you want to come?"

"I don’t know, when are you going."

"This Saturday, you aren’t busy are you?" This gave me another chance to refuse Rena’s offer, the trip with Rena and the others was also on Saturday, should I go to Skate World instead?

"I’m not so sure." I choose to say uncertain.

"You can bring Rena too, if you like." The mention of bringing Rena to a date suddenly made up my mind for me.

"Sorry I can’t go, I forgot I have other plans on the same day."

"Oh. Then I’ll see you tomorrow." Gage said smoothly without feeling insulted.

"Ok, bye."

"Bye." Then we hanged up. I guess I’m going to see Rena and her boyfriend this Saturday.

****

Today was the day I’m going to meet Rena’s boyfriend, it’s already two o’clock and I can’t decide if I really made the right choice. It felt like I was going to visit Rena’s parents all over again, it’s really intense and you try to impress them that you’re the one for her (not that it was necessary now). I made up my mind to wear a plaid shirt with the American colors on it, and a pair of plain blue jeans., my hair seemed ok this morning. Maybe I should take a shower too? Even though I was trying to pass the time, I took a sniff at myself and I didn’t smell that bad but my conscious said something different. Maybe it’s because I always smell me and I can’t tell the difference. At this thought, I ran towards the bathroom and quickly shoved my clothes off. Then I turned the water on and raised the little tool to get the shower. I first felt cold water at running against my head and shivered to get out, then gradually warm water came and became hot. The heat was great on my cold body and I stood there still, then I reminded myself the shampoo and took a bottle from the corner of the tub. It must of been an hour when I got out, it just felt so refreshing with the extreme things coming at me lately. I slowly put my clothes back on and started to dry my hair with a hair dryer, as the warm air blew over my hair I glimpsed over at the clock to see what time it was. It was three ten.

"Holy-!" I didn’t get to finish my cussing as I fumbled to my car. It would take at least ten minutes to get to the Star Bucks Rena and her boyfriend were at. I hastily got my cell phone and turned it on, I typed in Rena’s number and hoped for the best. Ringing came but there was no answer, I put my cell away and focused on the road again. "

"I hope they’re still there." I mumbled. Then I pushed the gas pedal harder and reached the limits to how many miles I could go, at stop lights I waited impatiently and was the first to get out of there. Time passed way too slow for me as I hurried to park my car in the space, I ran fast to get in the shop and looked around. There she was, laughing with her supposed boyfriend. She was wearing a blue mini dress and white shorts underneath, I checked the clock, three fifteen, I wasn’t that late as I thought I would be. Smiling, I walked towards the table with Rena, her new love looked like he was at least older than her by two years and was fairly handsome I noticed. When Rena finally glanced at my direction, she smiled brighter and motioned me to sit with them.

"This is the guy I told you about." Rena said as I sat down. "His name is Sky Barker and we’ve dated for a couple of months before we broke up."

"Hi." I said then waved my hand a little.

"Sky, meet Josh." She said and pointed to her new boyfriend. He had pale blue eyes and was wearing a black shirt with brown shorts, a very plain outfit said in very plain words.

"We were afraid you couldn’t make it." Josh said.

"Sorry about that, I didn’t notice the time and got here late." I said, Josh wasn’t that bad.

"Oh well, at least you’re here." Rena said beaming. "By the way this is Loretta, Josh’s friend whom he broke up with." Rena said pointing to a girl I didn’t recognize before.

"It’s ok if you say ex-girlfriend." Loretta said. She was pretty slim and was wearing a pink blouse and a white mini skirt. For some reason I felt my heart beat faster when I saw her face and thought she looked nice.

"Hello, Loretta." I said to her. Loretta smiled and flashed her green eyes at me, perhaps we felt the same thing.

"Now that we’re all here, should we go?" Rena asked us. But I barely heard her as I was gazing at Loretta across from me.

"Oh, yeah." I said after a moment. Then we got up and while Rena walked by Josh’s side I got to walk with Loretta. I didn’t care if Rena walked with Josh, it seems I was only paying attention to Loretta. As we walked we talked to each other and found out we had a lot in common.

"What about Step Brothers? Is that your favorite movie too?" Loretta asked me.

"Yeah! Wow, we do have a lot in common." I said surprised. Then we giggled. For the rest of the day we went to the movies, amusement parks, a dinner, and we even went to the library. After we ate dinner, it was time for us to sperate and by then I got to know a lot about Loretta and didn’t want to be away from her. Though the trip itself wasn’t that fun, we were just happy to spend our time together with our new partners. As we were leaving, Rena and Josh exchanged hugs as did Loretta and I, even though we didn’t want to go it was getting late.

"Can I see you again later?" I asked Loretta eager.

"Sure, I’ll give you my phone number." She said and reached into her purse to get a pen and paper. "Here." She handed a sticky note wither her number on it. Then she handed me the pen and sticky notes. "Give me your number." I happily did her request and gave her the note.

"Guess I’ll see you later." I said when we were done.

"Yeah." Loretta said softly then looked around and gave me a quick peck on the cheek. "Bye." She whispered in my ear.

"Bye." I said back dazed. Then I went back to my car and hummed on the drive back. I went into the house and went straight to my room. Taking my cell phone out I pressed the phone number I recently got.

"Hello?" Herever so tender voice said.

"This is Sky." I reply.

This time I’m not letting her break up with me.
