I'm sorry for the extremely short chapter, but it's honestly all I could think of so far. I'm fasting & in all honesty, I can't..think properly. Well, I can but..meh. Idk, I think I've gone stark raving mad :L haha, okay. Anyways, sorry that there's no Carter in this chapter but yeah. Lemme know what'cha think & stuff!(:
Song to the right is 'I Just Can't Live a Lie' by Carrie Underwood<3
P.S. Time heals all wounds.
Capítulo Ocho ❤
Tears blurred my vision as I silently stared at the pictures of Carter and I. It hurt, knowing that I’ve pretty much screwed up our friendship all because of my damn stupidity.
“Rose, you okay?” Raven asked me softly, concern etched into her beautiful features. I glanced up, taking in a slow, deep breath and forced a smile onto my face though it probably looked more like a grimace.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” I replied, sighing.
Two weeks. Two damn weeks without Carter and it was killing me.
“Are you sure?” Leanna said, tilting her head slightly to the right as she stared at me. I glanced down at the pictures, sighing again. “Mergh…” I muttered unintelligibly.
“Okay, that’s it. C’mon girly, we’re going out!!” Raven stated, dragging me up. “Huh?” I asked, cleverly. She rolled her eyes, “hun, we’re going out, okay? You’re depressed and you need to get some ice cream into your system. We’re going cinema, alright? You know the one Mark owns?”
When Leanna and I nodded, she continued. “I’ll make him somehow put on all the Disney movies, and we’ll watch it. Hurry up!” she commanded, making me sigh again. “But I don’t wa-” I started to say before Leanna interrupted me.
Thirty minutes later, I find myself in the cinema with the girls. Needless to say, they’re good at persuading when the time comes. Normally, Tangled is my favourite Disney movie and I find it totally adorable, but today?
I just can’t seem to concentrate.
Thoughts of Carter flood my mind, and I choke back tears. How couldn’t I have realised how I felt about him, before it was too late? I think silently, trying not to cry. It’s just…oh Lord
A few hours later, the girls and I are at Starbuck’s, drinking a caramel hot chocolate. “Hun, why don’t you just go talk to him?” Leanna asked, taking a slow sip of her drink. I sighed quietly, running a hand through my hair.
“He hates me,” I mumbled.
“No he doesn’t, he’s just a little hurt. You two idiots need to talk about it, alright?” Raven said, pointing at me with her straw. I rolled my eyes, smiling slightly. “Yeah I know we do but…I’m scared,” I said, grimacing slightly.
“Don’t be. Just talk to him.”
“Okay, screw this. You two have been best friends forever, and you were bound to fall for each other at some point. Trust me, you two will probably start talking again in a day or something,” Raven said, smiling sympathetically.
I forced myself to smile, somehow doubting it.
