How to waste your time in the most painful way possible.
It's been nine days since Luis Pierce and i broke up.
He hasn't been in school, but i've been texting Layton every couple hours to make sure he's eating properly, which thankfully he has.
I wanna see him, but i don't wanna give him the wrong idea. I haven't forgotten. And i don't think i'll ever forgive him. I can't.
It's 9pm and i'm finishing my spanish homework. I didn't go to the detention on Monday since i left school earlier, and Ms Garcia is gonna murder me, but that's the last thing on my mind right now to be frank.
I also have math and chem homework, but i left those in my bag. Out of sight out of mind i'd like to call it.
My phone buzzes, but i ignore it.
In all honesty i need to turn my phone off; i should not be taking this long on homework for a language that i already speak. Quite embarrassing.
My phone buzzes again and i tut, picking it up.
im outside -L
I raise my eyebrows. I'm pretty surprised he left the house.
Why? I type back before putting my phone back down on the bed.
It buzzes again and i sigh.
i need to see you. -L
Huffing, i throw my phone back down, grabbing a hoodie and leaving my room.
I slip my feet into my crocs as i pull the door open, looking up at the black jeep in my driveway.
Luis is lying back, his eyes closed. He looks perfect.
I walk around to the other side, pulling the car door open. He lolls his head to the side as i take a seat, slowing opening his eyes.
"Hey." he says quietly.
"How are you?"
"What is it Luis?" i sigh.
His eyes on mine becomes too intense, and i turn to look out the window.
"I'm sorry Devyn." he breathes.
"Sorry isn't good enough." i say simply.
"None of it was fake. I liked you from the start."
I turn to look at him now.
"But when i realised i was in love with you... it scared me." he runs a hand through his hair. "It was such a stupid thing to do. She just came on to me and i didn't resist."
Luis looks at me, his brows furrowed.
"No it's not Dev-"
"Some things just aren't meant to be." i smile at him softly.
A tear slides down his cheek and wipe it with the pad of my thumb.
"Do you remember what i said before all of this? Don't look for any redeeming qualities in me. And that's all you do Dev. You're so good for me and i ruined everything."
I'm glad he's self aware.
I close my eyes, letting the tears i've been pushing back make their way down my cheeks.
"I'm so sorry Dev. I never wanted to hurt you."
"We should go our separate ways Luis. It's for the best." i press my lips together.
He nods slowly, looking back up. "Friends?"
I shake my head and his face drops.
"We could never just be friends. You know that." i laugh and he nods, tears falling down his face.
I cup his face as i lean forward, and i press my lips againt his. His smell, taste, the softness of his lips against mine warm my heart. But i have to pull away.
"I love you." i whisper, pressing our foreheads together.
His eyes widen in shock, before his whole face crumbles.
"I love you." Luis husks.
I pull away, opening the car door and stepping out. I walk into my house, not stopping to look back before i close the door behind me.
