The words that I heard three months before. Before that summer went up in flames. Literally.
That night I had had enough. I didn't want to hear anymore. I just wanted to understand. No one wanted that though. They all just wanted me gone. Dead maybe. Who knows? It was them. It wasn't my fault... But everyone blamed me. Why? Cause we were best friends. Her family's gone. No one cared for her. I took her in and this is how she repays me? No I don't think so.
See, back in the 8th grade I was the quiet, lonely girl no one talked to. And for that I had good grades, stayed out of trouble, and when some thing came up, I kinda just got left alone. I could have done something crazy and pulled the fire alarm but no one would have suspected it would be.
And I was fine with that.
Then this girl comes. She's knew. She's from a whole other state. You would think she'd keep a low profile. But she doesn't. I wanted to know why and so I found out why.
She had a bad past. Very very bad. She wanted the attention she never got. Her parents died in a car accident when she was nine. Ever since then she's lived with her Aunt and Uncle. They were alcoholics. They were always out with friends or doing something stupid. I'm surprised that they weren't dead.
But that's not for me to worry about.
Instead I worried about this outgoing, funny, hyper, happy girl that every guy drooled over.
For once, I was envious of someone.
See, she didn't get any attention at home and if she did it was for doing something wrong. She was smart. She was pretty. She did things to make her "parents" happy.
Well, when she was 14 her virginity was taken from her. She was raped.
So she says. She loved her boyfriend. She wanted to keep him happy. I understand that but for her...she was blinded.
So one day I just went up and asked her if she wanted to hang out sometime and she said yes. That night we went to the park and she told me everything.
Here's this hurt, broken, and crying girl in my arms in the middle of the park and it's like midnight. On a school night!
Now i'm no nerd but I was tired.
But her story went a bit like this....
