Chapter Thirteen: Fights

I woke up the next morning with a headache, and I didn't feel like facing Ricky today. I got out of bed and grabbed my phone so I could call Connie. She answered on the second ring and I heard Jake's voice in the background.

"Can you guys pick me up on the way to school?" I asked.

"Sure," Connie said. "I'll be there in twenty minutes."

"Thanks," I said hanging up the phone. I walked over to my closet and pulled out a pair of my skinny jeans and a royal blue tank top then pulled my blue and white plaid shirt on. I rolled up the sleeves to my elbows and then I slid my feet into my sandals. I pulled up my hair in a high ponytail and didn't even bother to put on any makeup because I certainly wasn't in the mood.

I slowly opened my door listening for any signs of Ricky. I stepped out into the hallway then walked out into the living room and saw Ricky sitting at the bar eating breakfast. I clicked my tongue and walked forward into the kitchen. I grabbed an apple out of the basket next to the microwave not even acknowledging Ricky. I quickly rinsed the apple off in the sink then grabbed my bag walking outside. If Ricky was going to be mad at me then fine, but I'm not going to try to talk to him until he's ready to talk.

I walked out the door at the same time that Connie was pulling into my driveway. Jake got out so that I could crawl into the backseat. I buckled my seatbelt and let Connie know that Ricky wasn't coming. Jake climbed back into his seat and Connie began to pull out of the driveway. Connie drove to school without a word, but as soon as she pulled into the parking lot it was question time.

"So what's going on?" Connie asked parking her car in a parking space. I ignored her at first long enough so that we could all get out of the car.

"What you mean?" I asked.

"You and Ricky," she said.

"Yesterday, you two were like this," she said crossing her index and middle finger.

"You know how he talked to Amberly yesterday?" I said. "Well, she told me that her mom was a social worker and I told Ricky that's what she told me so when he talked to her she told him that her mom is a surgeon. That's what that little comment was about in homeroom yesterday."

"Now Ricky thinks you're the one lying?" Jake asked.

"I guess so," I said. "When he came home from work last night, he was pissed and he yelled at me. Like actually yelled at me."

"What a di---" Connie stopped herself when she saw Amberly pull into the parking lot behind Ricky. I watched as he parked his bike and she of course parked next to him. "She doesn't give up does she."

I watched as Amberly got out of her car and walked over to Ricky, who was still on his bike. I only wish I knew what they were talking about. Amberly smiled at me when she saw me staring over at her and Ricky. The smile told me that she was happy that everything was going according to plan.

Maybe it's for the best, a voice in the back of my head chimed. I mean, you were going to break up eventually because of him going to college and all. This is your out take advantage of it.

I hated to admit it, but the voice was right. I wasn't going to attempt a long distance relationship with Ricky so maybe this was a good thing that we break up now so it'll be easier to let him go at the end of summer next year. I did the impossible thing and smiled back at Amberly letting her know that I wasn't going to let her get under my skin anymore.

"Come on," I said, "we're going to be late for homeroom."

"Wait, this doesn't bother you that she's getting what she wants?" Connie asked.
