Chapter Twelve

68 7 0


This isn't how I imagined any of this to happen. I just wanted to be with one person and I let 2 people go.

I doubt Scarlet would ever take me back.

I sit down and rub my eyes, facing reality. I don't know what to do anymore. I can't call Jayden, and tell her to come back. And I can't call Scarlet, she wouldn't even let me say Hi.

But my only hope with happiness is Scarlet. How can I be with someone who doesn't even remember herself?

I pull out my phone, and dial Scarlet's number. I call anonymously.
"H-hello?" She answers.

I didn't think it would work.

"Scarlet, it's Elliot. Please let me talk to you."

She scoffs. "What do you want?"

"I need you more than I ever needed you. Scarlet, I am madly in love with you. I'm sorry for kissing Jayden at the party. Please forgive me. You probably think I'm an ass, but just please take me back. I don't want to be this way. Scarlet, believe me, I didn't mean for any of this to happen. Take me back."

"Elliot are you serious? You kissed another girl in front of my face and expect me to forgive you? What is wrong with you?"

"As you saw, at that party, I was intoxicated. I didn't know what I was doing."

"Elliot, believe me, I love you as well, I can't bare be without you. But you cheated on me in front of me. You did me wrong."

"Scarlet please. One more chance I promise to make everything better than it is now. I won't make stupid mistakes like I did last time."

"I can't believe you. But I love you. I'm madly in love with you. I guess, I'll give you one more chance."

I smile in relief. "Scarlet, I love you."

"Love you, too."

She hangs up.
I got my baby back.

Scarlet's P.O.V.-
I just got off the phone with Elliot.

I suddenly began smiling. I haven't smiled since we broke up.

I'm happy again, and I couldn't be happier. Let's just hope Jayden doesn't come in the picture.

This time I'm thinking on telling my parents, and Prim.

I pull my brunette hair back, and smile. I can't help but smile.

I pull up my phone and text Prim immediately. "Hey, I need to talk to you. Meet me at moms house in 1 hour."

I put my phone in my pocket.

Jayden's P.O.V.-

I throw myself on the bed and roll around in it for a couple minutes, before bursting into tears.

"I'm such an Idiot. Why did I do that?" I want Elliot so badly. I wish that my memory was restored, and that I really remember who he was.

But it doesn't work that way.

I suddenly start to get a small headache. Then it hits me. Prim; My bestfriend. I know something about her younger sister. I just don't know what.

I think for a while until it all makes sense.

Scarlet is Prim's little sister. Scarlet is dating-or-isn't dating Elliot. Maybe that is why he rejected me.

I Stand up and head to my bathroom. I remove all my makeup and put my hair in a bun. I hop into the shower and take maybe a 4 hour shower. I take long showers.

I then place the towel over my body, and walk back into my room. Scattering my dresser, I find black shorts, and a white crop top. I place this on and begin on my make up. I place foundation, concealer, eyeliner, then lipstick.

I loosen my hair and put it back up into a high pony-tail. I place on my white converse. I take a good look at myself, and I admire how I look.
Some girls don't admire their body, or they don't take time to appreciate it.

I'm grateful to have a body like mine.

Scarlet's P.O.V.-

It's 1:00. I drive to my moms place and park out front. I can tell Prim hasn't gotten here yet.

I walk out my car and into my moms house. Prim pulls up.

I wait for her at the door. As she approaches me, I open the door for her, I follow in behind her.

"So, you wanted to see me?" "Yes"

I call out for my mom. "MOM?!"

She comes running down the steps. "Scarlet! Prim! What are you guys doing here?" She asked, "I need to tell you guys something."
"Okay, sure honey what is it?" she says as we all sit down.

"Now I know that I don't live by your rules anymore, but I just wanted you to know that I had been lying to you for the past year."

"W-What do you mean?" My mom questions.

"Well, when you asked me if I had a boyfriend, and I said no, I lied. I did have one-I still do. His name is Elliot."

"Elliot?" Prim questions. "I have him for history. I think Jayden likes him."

"Jayden? Likes him? She kissed him already and shes not even going out with him. Now, I cannot stand her."

"Scarlet! That's my Bestfriend your talking about!"

"I don't care! Your Bestfriend is a bitch. Blame her for making me unhappy."

"Jayden is like Family to me, okay? Don't call her that."

"If she's like family, your just gonna let her break your little sisters heart? She made me want to die, because she made Elliot cheat on me, infront of my own eyes."

"What do you expect me to do? Unfriend her? I can't just do that, we have so much memories and I can't let them all go to waste."

"Well, that is what your going to have to do. Chose your REAL sister, over your fake one. Who do you love more? Your loving sister, or the one who made your loving sister cry?"

"That is it! I chose none of you, because if I chose one, I'm betraying another and I love you both equally. I can't explain how much you both mean to me. I can't chose one over another. It's to much."

She starts crying. I can see the sadness in her eyes.

"I'm leaving, Scarlet. Don't come looking for me."

She leaves. Now it's just me and mom.

"Scarlet, sweetie, come here." Mom says, while giving me a hug. "It will all be alright." I start to cry. I drove my sister away, what now?

Prim's P.O.V.-

I leave through the door and run into my car, crying. I can't believe this happened.

I've decided to ignore both, so none will be betrayed. But it only costs double the pain.

I don't know why I got myself into this mess. I want to get out.
