➳ CHAPTER FOUR
MY SECRET BEST FRIEND
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬



⠀⠀⠀I slide my face into my sweaty palms and sigh into my hands and let myself relax.

⠀⠀⠀A big mistake. Because I hear someone knock hard on my stall. My heart beat races because I recognized the sugar-plum purple high heel shoes. When I don't answer, the knock gets so hard the door starts to shake.

⠀⠀⠀Oh my god! I exclaimed in my thoughts as I had a panic attack when I realized who they belonged to.

⠀⠀⠀Didn't those belong to Jennifer!?

⠀⠀⠀I didn't know what to do, I was half way through planning my escape route (crawling under to the stall next to me and hiding again) when I heard someone speak up. The bathroom echoed her voice and made it sound soft.

⠀⠀⠀"Hey, uh... Abby?" It was Britany's voice. I froze.

⠀⠀⠀"Y-yeah...?" I stuttered.

⠀⠀⠀"Can you get out here?" She asked.

⠀⠀⠀I open the stall door a crack and peeked through. The girl was always taller than me. Even in Pre-school. Her short-boy cut hair was mahogany brown. The kind that made you look extremely intelligent and suave at the same time-- looking at her looking at me, I remember when I was in Pre-school and I used to cry because I had blonde hair... The boys would call me stupid even though I really wasn't.

⠀⠀⠀Britany had cussed with words that I could only imagine Truck-drivers used. We both got into trouble that day. She didn't cry. She enver cried. I always did though.

⠀⠀⠀Finally she told me to just shut up and sit beside her already, and I did.

⠀⠀⠀I never cried whenever she was around.

⠀⠀⠀"Oye," She uttered and scruffled her brows together in deep contemplation, or maybe frustration, "Are you gonna get out or not?"

⠀⠀⠀Her voice was always kind of rough, but I excused it because she seemed to always find it hard to be soft and gentle. Britany was after all, the one girl I knew who punched the guy she liked int he face before she actually kissed him. 

⠀⠀⠀I am so glad that they are actually still together.

⠀⠀⠀They are literally the one couple that met in highschool and kept together.

⠀⠀⠀They lasted.

⠀⠀⠀And I was s proud, because that's what Britany did. She lasted.

⠀⠀⠀"Abby!" SHe yelled at me and I jumped and nearly slipped in water that coated the slick bathroom floor. I yelped. Britany caught me and rolled her dark blue eyes, "We're late for class you, useless bunny."

⠀⠀⠀"I'm bunny now?" I retorted softly and poked her in her ribs payflly. Naturally Britany didn't flinch.

⠀⠀⠀She walked to the door and the clinking of the plum purple heels (that were absolutely gorgeous by the way) reminded me of a question I was dying to ask. "Britany...?"

⠀⠀⠀"Yeah?" She grunted.

⠀⠀⠀"Why do you have Jennifer's shoes?" I asked while I fidget.

⠀⠀⠀"Jennifer's?" My friend's nose wrinkled dramatically as she growled, "That b*tch doesn't know style like this even I it bit her in her wrinkly ass!"

⠀⠀⠀"Britany!" I exclaim, but she ignores my scolding as usual.

⠀⠀⠀"Oh, and that reminds me..." She reached into her purse and dug around before she stopped and shook her head, "Oh wait!" She closed her designer bag and searched her bra while I watched in disbelief, "Here it is!" She held up the 100 bucks that she conned out of Jennifer and grinned like a madman.

⠀⠀⠀She wiggled excitedly as she flaunted it in front of me, "You wanna split it, baby doll?" She winked and I scoffed, which made her laugh. "come on, I'm serious! I'll buy you lunch!" She offered.

⠀⠀⠀"Alright..." I agreed, "But I don't feel like eating anything," I touched my tummy absentmindedly, "Maybe some water--"

⠀⠀⠀"And some crackers?" She mocked me and I hit her arm and frown, but I can't help but laugh when she teases me, "Bunny want a cracker?"

⠀⠀⠀"It's Polly wants a cracker!" I laugh.

⠀⠀⠀"Whatever." She opened the bathroom door and sauntered out the way I wish I could, "You're eating something decent, whether you like it or not!" She called out behind her, because I was always behind her. Watching her confidence flower.

⠀⠀⠀"Oye!" Britany called out and I walked into her back by accident. She grabbed my arm and flung me in front of her, and still holding unto my hand, she began walking again, "I don't like when you walk behind me." She said bluntly as she whistled in the empty halls.

⠀⠀⠀I hop she knew that the teachers were totally going to murder us for being late. Because even if I reminded her like I usually did, she would just shrug and offer me a stick of gum.

⠀⠀⠀My friend and I walked through the now empty hallway.
Squeeky converse and clinky heels, side by side.

⠀⠀⠀I thought about talkind to her about that strange dream. I planned to tell her in Chemistry when Mrs. Paula reads her magazine.

⠀⠀⠀"Britanny?" I slowly roll up my crème cardigan's sleeve to reveal the scar. The sight of the pink word across my arm makes my stomach flip and do cartwheels.

⠀⠀⠀"Oh my god, Abby..." Britanny gasped and coverd her mouth with both hands. The way she reacted, I knew it was bad. But what made it so so much worse whasn't my secret best-friend's reaction.

⠀⠀⠀It was because now I knew she could see the scar too and I knew the scar was real.

⠀⠀⠀I knew He was real...
