I see the way that you look
When you hear his name
I see his picture up in your frame
And you refuse to admit
You still miss him but it's okay
Fly Before You Fall - Cynthia Erivo
Chapter Seven – The Way He Looks At Me
"Violet, where are you? Mom and Dad are freaking out, and I'm worried. Can you please call or text me? Please... I love you." I cut the line and sighed out loud.
"Where's your sister?" I jumped when I heard a voice behind me. I turned around to see Sean smiling at me. I felt bad because I haven't been tutoring him like I was supposed to. I was so worried about my missing twin that I forgot about him.
"I'm not really sure. I haven't seen her in two days." Sean's jaw dropped when I mentioned the days.
"Is she okay? Do you think she's..."
"Dead? No." At least I hope she wasn't.
"Maybe she's with her boyfriend. Kids do these kind of things all the time." This situation was serious, but I couldn't help but smile when Sean smiled. He had a contagious smile.
"It wouldn't be the first time." I looked up at him when he put his arm around my shoulders.
"See! Violet is probably humping it up with her boyfriend." Did he really just say that?
"I guess. Listen, I'm really sorry about not working with you. I've been worrying about Violet and-" Sean placed his finger on my lips.
"Don't worry about it. I forgive you." I giggled when he blew me a kiss. I had no idea Sean was this playful. He was a nice guy, but I didn't think he had this silly side to him.
"We can pick up tomorrow if you want? Maybe after school." I didn't like that evil smirk Sean was giving me right now. I swallowed hard and laughed nervously.
"You can make it up to me by coming with me somewhere." I stepped away from his arm and raised my eyebrow.
"Where?" Sean rubbed his hands together slowly.
"There's this party tonight, and I want you to go. No, no, no!" He stepped closer to me when I started shaking my head no.
"Sean, I don't like parties. I'm sorry..."
"You're going missy! You need to get out more often, okay? Please, Viola!" Sean poked his pink bottom lip out.
"I'm really sorry. The bell is going to ring soon." I quickly turned around and walked away.
"Think about it!" Sean yelled.
I don't like going to parties. I wasn't that girl that liked to get wild and party. I'd rather stay in my room and read a book. I didn't have time to drink and socialize with people. Who would I talk to anyways? I had no friends.
Before I knew it, it was time to go home. I was planning on walking home since I didn't have a ride. Violet was missing and she usually told me when and where to meet Zain. I wasn't speaking to Zain at the moment, so I didn't have a ride.
Zain has been calling and texting me. I'm not sure if I was mad because I caught him with his ex, or because he left me in a car to go make drug trades. I didn't feel like dealing with Zain at the moment. I would talk to him eventually, but not right now.
