I decided not to go to school on Monday. I don't know why, but I had this gut feeling that Rose might be right and being me, I wanted to avoid the situation as much as possible. Even though I was mad at her and she was at me, didn't mean her intentions on warning me about Jagger weren't sincere.

So I laid in my bed pretty much all day just playing on my phone or doing whatever.

But when it was around 4, the time everyone gets out of school, I got a bunch of texts from random numbers or my 'friends'.

I figured they all just wanted to know why I wasn't at school today but when I opened up one of the conversations I saw that wasn't the case.

I began to panic and I opened up another conversation. Basically the same thing. I opened up more and more and the more I opened up the more I began to panic.

Rose was right, Jagger... This was a bad idea.

Jagger had told... Everyone.

Now everyone at school knew my secret. They all knew I was different.. They all knew I liked Jagger... They all knew I liked John... They all knew I kissed Jagger at the party the other night... They all knew everything.

Jagger told.

I jumped up frantically and I began to panic. I tried taking deep breaths to calm myself down and I tried to swallow the lump that had formed in my throat.

I didn't know what to do.

I didn't answer any of the texts but I knew that it said I had read them. I sat back down on my bed and ran my fingers through my hair. Tears welled up in my eyes and threatened to fall.

I didn't have anyone to talk to. No where to go.

Just when I had finally some how managed to calm myself down, I got a text from the person I didn't want to talk to most.

Well, The second to the person I didn't want to speak to the most.

Rose.

"Dave..."

"Dave!"

"DAVE FUCKING ANSWER ME!"

Just the thought of her made me want to cry.

"what the fuck do you want, lalonde"

Yeah it seemed harsh but I don't care.

"I just wanted to make sure you were okay..."

I sarcastically laughed to myself at this.

"i've never been better"

I bit my lip to keep from crying.

"I'm sorry, Dave. What Jagger did was wrong. I knew he couldn't be trusted. I'm so very sorry Dave. I can understand you being upset and I want you to know it's going to be okay and I'm here for you if you need me..."

I'm such an asshole.

I've been being rude to Rose the entire time and I keep getting into fights with her and it's always been  about Jagger and here she is, When he finally screws me over, she's right there with me by my side just like she always is and always has been.

"i'm fine rose. i'm just pissed off at jagger for what he did. and don't worry im not mad at you"

She started telling me about how Jagger told her everything. But she had no idea he would do this. Then the next thing she knows the whole school knows and people were even talking to her about it and asking if she knew and all of that since me and her are, like, best friends and they all knew that. She said she just ignored them and walked away when they tried to talk to her about me and Jagger.

I was honestly relieved at that.

The only thing I have to deal with now is...

School tomorrow.
