Although I had been pleased to see Vicki, when Matt text me to say that he had arrived to collect me, I was more than happy. I needed to remove myself from the situation, and fast.
Standing up, I outstretched my arms to give Vicki and friendly hug. “I’m sorry I have to go, but Matt text me saying that he needs to pick me up now and…I guess I’ve got to go…”
She smiled understandingly. “It’s okay. I completely understand. Promise you’ll call again though?”
I nodded. “Of course. I missed you too much not to.”
Laughing after I finished my sentence, I hoped to convince her. You see, I had admitted in the end that I was dating Matt.
And I wanted to keep on her good side. I didn’t want to do anything that would piss her off and perhaps persuade her to tell on us.
It was incredibly childish, but I had to worry. I didn’t want us to end up like she and Brian did.
I walked around the corner with speed, but at the same time trying not to make it obvious that I wanted to get away from the situation. I loved Vicki, I really did. But I didn’t love awkward situations and couldn’t really handle them.
Relief flooded through me as I saw Matt’s car pulled up on the sidewalk, rolling the window down to address the fact that I looked so angry.
“What’s up?” he asked, not really showing any means of concern as he did. “You don’t look too pleased. Did it not go well?”
I shook my head as I opened the car door, slumping myself inside and lazily fastening my seatbelt.
“Drive, Matt” I ordered him. “You want anyone to see us?” I know that it didn’t really matter if anyone saw us out in public acting normally, but I didn’t want Vic to see us together.
“We can always lie. That’s what you keep telling me. But anyway that’s not important right now. What happened with Vicki? Is that why you’re so moody right now?” he pressed, asking more questions than I could handle at that moment in time.
“She knows about us” I told him bluntly, getting straight to the point without elaborating further. “I couldn’t lie to her, Matt.”
He looked at him, finally with a face full of concern and shook his head. “Charlotte why did you tell her?”
“I told you” I argued weakly, “I couldn’t lie to her. She’s my best friend.”
“Was your best friend, Charlotte. Was. And now, she’ll probably go and tell someone. Are you mad? Do you know what you could have gotten us into? Didn’t you learn anything from what happened to Brian and Vicki? Didn’t you?”
As he finished shouting, his voice raised considerably. I had yet to see him fully mad, and I didn’t think that I wanted to. He was rather intimidating without even really trying.
“Because she is my best friend she won’t tell anyone!” I shouted back in return.
“No, Charlotte. Because of what happened to her she’ll be more inclined to tell on us because of the fact that she couldn’t be with Brian. And because she can’t be with Brian she’ll get jealous of what we’re able to do and she’ll tell on us out of spite.”
“No Matt! That’s exactly why she won’t tell on us. Because I’m her best friend, she won’t want me to go through what she had to, and she’ll be less inclined to tell. She won’t want me to suffer how she did.”
