The rest of the day went by in a blur. I walked around school in a sort of daze hardly paying attention to any of my classes. Lunch was pretty uneventful and I only saw Derek briefly because of football practice. I couldn't help but feel as though something terrible was going to happen soon, I don't know why but I just couldn't shake the feeling. After the bell had rung to signal the end of the day I walked towards the parking lot. I saw Stephanie's car parked a couple of feet from where mine was and I walked towards it wondering why she was just sitting in there. I could see her blonde head and as I got closer I couldn't help but notice that someone else was in there with her.
Something was telling me not to go any closer but curiosity got the best of me. As I got close enough to see clearly I noticed Stephanie's hands were tangled in a guys hair. I also noticed that there was something very familiar about the dirty blonde color. I gasped as I saw his face and I felt my heart breaking even more. They were kissing passionately and I guess they ran out of air because they broke apart. And that's when they saw me. Stephanie's face looked triumphant while his dark green eyes filled with pity and something I could have sworn was regret. But it went away just as quickly as it was there so I couldn't be too sure.
I just stood there frozen chanting to myself over and over not to cry. I had been doing that a lot lately and I didn't want to give them the satisfaction. They quickly got out of the car and stood there facing me and the same thought I had though the night before went through my head. Why me? Because there in the arm of my best friend stood my boyfriend, Derek.
"Why?" was the only thing that was going through my mind and I directed the question towards him. He didn't answer just looked at me as if daring me to ask that again. Since that question wasn't going to be answered I asked another one.
"How long?" I was proud that my voice came out sounding strong.
"Five months. I swear we were going to tell you it's just that there was never a right time. I'm so sorry" replied Stephanie not looking the least bit regretful. It had been going on for five months? That's almost half of our relationship! I couldn't believe the two people I trusted the most would do this to me! I was pulled out of my thoughts by the sound of whispering and I realized that we had an audience.
"Why wasn't I good enough?" I asked. Feeling like I was about to die. I should have noticed what they were doing but I was too trustful to doubt either of them.
"Of course Steph is better. She's prettier and smarter than you. You can't even compare you two and what kind of slut sleeps with someone else while she has a boyfriend?" he asked scornfully.
"What are you talking about?" I asked as tears filled my eyes.
" Steph told me about how you slept with this guy last night. I mean you said you weren't ready and I gave you time but here I find out that you slept with some other guy!" he said angrily.
"No she's lying! I didn't do anything how could you believe her? And I'm a slut? You're the one who was with my best friend behind my back!" "So you didn't have sex?" I looked away not knowing how to answer. People were listening in and I didn't want them to know.
"See babe told you" Stephanie said smirking my way. I don't know how she could be so hateful she was supposed to be my friend and she uses my darkest secret against me. He just shook his head and walked away pulling her along with him. I realized I had tears streaming down my face and as I turned around to walk towards my car I saw people looking at me with pity and disgust even though he had been the one that cheated.
I got in my car and cried as I drove to my house thinking about how I was so alone. I went to my room as soon as I got home and laid in my bed pretending that everything was fine. And even though I knew that was a complete lie, it made me feel safe even if it was just for a little while. I guess I must have fallen asleep because the next time I woke up it was dark outside. I went downstairs to the kitchen and made myself a sandwich. Even though I didn't feel hungry I forced it down knowing it would do me no good to starve myself. I went back upstairs and started doing some homework. It took a while but I finished just as my parents came home. I didn't bother to go down to greet them knowing they wouldn't care whether I did or not. I took a quick shower and went to bed hoping I wouldn't have a bad dream again. But as I had been realizing lately things don't always go as you hope.
