I can't help notice that Tori and K.C have been spending a lot of time together. They always talk in school, more than usually. I really don't hope that anything is going on with them, I'll kill them both if there is.

"Is it just me, or have they been hanging out a lot?" I ask Jennifer and Bridget as I keep looking at Tori and K.C who is standing at the food line.

"Look K.C is a nice guy, and that's all. I mean Tori and you are two completely different persons. Do you think he would fall for her?" She says with a knowingly grin.

"Yeah you're right. I mean look at her." I say trying to convince myself.

"Yeah, look at her." Bridget says repeating what I had just said.
"Maybe he is just upset and she lives with you, and that feels like a comfort. Or something." Jennifer says. I don't think K.C's upset. He seems pretty fine to me.

"Maybe, I don't know." I say.

"Well you said it yourself, he would never fall for her. But do you think he would do that to you, even if he liked her? I mean she is your stepsister after all" Bridget says. "He wouldn't, and she wouldn't either. She knows I would freak on her." I say.

What the hell was I thinking? Him with her? Never. He wouldn't do that to me.


K.C is really trying to not make things awkward. He keeps smiling and pretending nothing happened, and I try to smile back, but I fail miserably every time. It turns out to be those really fake smiles. How can I just pretend that everything is okay when it's not. He is doing a good job forgetting about everything. The hardest part of it all? Deleting all the hundreds of pictures of us on my phone. Which reminds me I need to send back some of his stuff he gave to me. I don't really want to.

I sit at the back of the class and Stefan enters. I haven't talked with him for almost 2 months now. I don't think I should be mad at him for what happened. After everything K.C said about how he feels about me I shouldn't be mad at Stefan. He tried to talk to me several times but I was just too mad to hear him out. No one is really talking to him anymore. I feel bad that he is being treated the way he is. All of K.C's friends are being dicks to him. He just shows up for the lessons from time to time, other than that I don't see him. He's not sitting in the cafeteria with the rest of us. He doesn't deserve the way he has been treated. And I don't want it to be my fault.

He sits in the back too, but in the corner. There is an available seat between us. He stopped trying to talk to me after I shut him down all the other times. He apologized many times. He doesn't look too well. Everybody is ignoring him or talking like crap to him. All because of me. All because he 'offended' the golden boy. I hate how everybody automatically takes K.C's side every time something happens. Though, it wasn't his fault, but these people just annoy the shit out of me.


I move to the available seat next to Stefan. The teacher hasn't come yet.


"Hi." I say to him. He looks confused. I haven't been talking to him and now suddenly I am. It takes a few seconds for him to respond.

"Hey" he says not sure if he should continue with the conversation.

"Long time, how are you?" I say. not sure what else to say to him right now. It's kind of awkward.

"I'm great, and you?" he asks.

"I'm good too." I say and give him a little smile. Then none of us say anything. He looks down at his papers.

"Look, I'm sorry for treating you the way I did. I was mad and blamed you for everything, so I am sorry for that." I say. He still just looks at his paper not answering. I understand if he doesn't want to talk to me, but at least he can just tell me not to speak to him or leave him alone.
