Okayy, so, before I start…..

This chapter has a quote in it from an AWESOME song by Mayday Parade called terrible things. This is because greendayfan4Gway and I are working on a sequel for this story with the name “I’m Only Telling You This Because Life Can Do Terrible Things.” I suppose you can guess a little from the song what it’s going to be about but it should be pretty good.

I felt a surge of anger rush through my veins. Why the fuck was she still on the tour?” she had no connection to any of them now!

I expressed this thought to Matt.

“Look, I don’t even know why she’s coming. But Zacky called me this morning – just after we woke up. He told me that she was staying for the rest of the tour.”

“Why, Matt WHY? Why the hell are the guys actually letting her stay after what she has done to you?”

“If it wasn’t for Valary, there would be no Avenged Sevenfold. I can’t make them stop talking to her.”

I glared at him.

“Look,” he said “I don’t like this anymore than you do. But, technically she’s still our manager which means that she has to stay with us. I promise that as soon as this tour ends, she will be gone.”

“You promise?” I asked cynically.

“I promise!” Matt exclaimed – his reaction most likely because of the cynicism in my tone. His glare softened into one full of love. I smiled.

“You know Matt, I know I shouldn’t say this but I really believe I can tell by your eyes that you’re in love with me.”

Matt looked at me. His eyes were full of affection and, thankfully, he did not looked shocked by what I had just told him. I smiled. The fact that Valary was on tour with us made the need to express my feelings greater than I had felt before Matt picked me up.

“I can tell what you’re thinking. There is no need to be worrying about Valary and I. We’re finished. She’s pregnant with someone else’s child. What could I do? Pretend that the baby was mine? I don’t even love her anymore. I’m in love with YOU. You just said it yourself.”

“I know ” I giggled “but don’t you think that there will always be a place in your heart for Valary? You were married. Theoretically, you still are.”

“Yes, of course there will. We grew up together. But the fact is that she has hurt me in more ways than imaginable and the consequences are far too great to brush aside. She’s a great person but I’m no longer in love with her.”

“I can see some truth in what you are saying. But you’ve got to stop hiding the hurt that you feel. How can you expect me to be open if you’re not yourself?”

He said nothing – he just shook his head and let out a deep long sigh.

As I became aware of my surroundings, I found that we were at the same hotel wherein I first met with Matt.
