Chapter Sixteen: college
"Do you want to?" I asked.
"Want to what?" Ace asked.
"Really? I asked you this three times and you still aren't listening?" I asked.
"Not really," he confessed.
"Do you want to go to graduation with me tomorrow?" I asked again.
"Graduation is tomorrow?" he yelled.
"Yes," I answered smiling.
"Oh my gosh we're graduating tomorrow!!!!!!" he said.
"Yes we are," I assured him.
"Crap!!!! I didn't apply to college!!!!!" he said.
"Yes you did. Well, technically we applied for you. How do you not remember?," I said.
"Was I drunk?" He asked.
"No you jerk. You took me out for dinner, then we came home and we applied to college together." I said.
"Thank goodness," he declared. I smiled.
"You made it into the local University, Community College, and Purdue university in Indiana," I told him.
"I made it in?" he questioned not to sure if I was being truthful.
"Yes," I said.
"Which one are you going to?" he asked me.
"I don't know," I said, my smile fading away.
"Where did you get accepted?" he asked.
"Purdue, Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, and Yale University," I said shyly.
"T-That's all the Ivy league schools, and Purdue," he said shocked.
"Um, Yeah," I said.
"That's amazing!!!!!" he said.
He was smiling, telling me he was proud, but I could see the pain in his eyes as he realized that we would be going to different schools. I was sad too, but I learned to keep it inside when my dad left me all that time ago. Ace seems to see right through me though. Although, he wasn't looking as deep into my eyes as he usually does.
"I should be getting home," he said.
"Umm...yeah you should," I said.
He left. He didn't looked back once. I knew in the back of my mind he was crying. I could almost feel the single tears falling down his cheek. It hurt, but I knew going to help him wouldn't help because he didn't want me to see him cry. I held back the temptation to run up and hug him and tell him it was gonna be ok. I turned around and walked over to my door.
I was going to the library to think. If he did go to a different school, would we ever see each other again? Everyone in our school loved him, would people have given him a reason to cheat on me there? I couldn't stand to be thinking about this for any longer.
A/N: Short chapter I know. Still hope that you enjoyed. Vote comment and share.
