Hey, it's my last day in Turkey today! *cries* But I managed to get another chapter for you in only a couple of days which must be some kind of record for me :P lol! I hope you like it! Thanks to everyone who continues to vote and comment on every chapter! I know who you guys are and I really appreciate it! :P To everyone else, I hope you vote/comment/fan!! Honestly, it makes my day! And I love talking to all my fans on meebo too :) SO yeah, enough babbling. Enjoy!
EDIT: So, just to clarify, there will not be another upload until after my exams, which end on June 22nd :) Also, the picture to the right is of a guy why looks most like I imagined Jared Cooper to be. It's funny because I spent hours searching and then I just randomly come across him :P hehe. Ian Harding was never right for Jared, having dark brown hair and blue eyes, whereas Jared has blonde-brown hair and brown eyes :D So yeah. Say hello to your new Jared. I hope you like him! If you don't, carry on picturing whoever you picture. :P
My room was growing dark, as the light slowly faded- the orange tones of sunset fading to purple dusk. Dimly, I could hear the footsteps and voices of the students, chattering excitedly as they walked to their rooms after finishing dinner. My stomach contracted with hunger and I sighed, rolling over and clutching my stomach to try and reduce the pains. I hadn’t eaten anything all day, but I couldn’t face going down to dinner. Jo-Jo would be there and I had no idea how she’d react to me. I knew I had to apologise soon, before it was too late, but what if she still didn’t forgive me?
‘It’s your own fault,’ I rebuked myself. ‘She’s your friend and you should have trusted her more.’
Then again, I had trusted Alex as a friend, though not with my past. But I had still trusted him to be honest with me, yet he had never mentioned Stacey. So how was I meant to tell who I could trust and who I couldn’t? I grew hot with anger as I thought of the situation he had carelessly thrown me in. If he’d have been truthful, none of this would have happened. I’d have known who Stacey was talking about and I’d still be with Jared…
I whimpered slightly at the thought, tears pooling in my eyes as I remembered how coolly he had rejected me. I couldn’t blame him really. I’d pushed him away again and again, and he still had no idea why. I guessed that finding out I’d spent the night with a guy who he already knew fancied me was the final straw.
‘Still,’ I thought angrily, wrapping my arms around the pillow and hugging it tight. ‘He could have at least let me explain!’
I sat upright as the sudden sound of banging on my door began.
“Go away!” I cried, not wanting to be disturbed.
“It’s me, Alex,” a voice called. “I need to talk to you.”
I stared at the door in outrage. I couldn’t believe he had the nerve to simply knock on my door! He must have heard about what happened with me and Stacey by now, and put two and two together and realised I knew. Was he stupid or something?
“I said, go away! I don’t want to talk to you!” I almost growled.
There was a slight pause, and then the handle started to turn, and I remembered with a groan that the door was unlocked.
“Well, I need to talk to you,” Alex said firmly and the door began to open.
“No, no, no, no!” I shouted, launching myself off the bed, and yelping as pain shot through my ankle. I lost my balance and fell over, almost hitting the floor when I was caught in Alex’s arms.
“Oooff,” he gasped. “You’re quite heavy!”
I glared at him as best as I could.
“Put me down now!”
“Gladly!” He retorted, placing me on the carpet.
I scrambled away from him and hoisted myself back onto the bed, gritting my teeth against the pain.
“Hey, what happened to your ankle?” He suddenly asked in a sharp tone.
I gave him a withering look. “I sprained it in a fight with Stacey. Or had you not heard about that?”
