Vanessa 🌻

"I can't believe your back.."

After a long family dinner, I dragged Kelly home with me. Vivian escorted us from my parents place, and left us alone for the rest of the night.

Me and Kelly sit across from each other on my bed, in our Pajama's, a large bag of doritos in between us.

"I know. I missed you so much Nessa, I think at one point more than I missed Tom." Kels shoots me a cheeky smile and I hit her with my foot.

"You better have." I joke, licking my fingers.

"So, tell me more about drake." She says, eying me warily. My heart aches at the mention of him, but I still feel a surge of anger course through me.

"Do we really have to talk about him?" I whine, frowning deeply.

Kelly scowls. "Vanessa Debra Adams, I haven't seen you in almost a month! After being by your side for fifteen dang years! You better give me details bitch. I am like a starved gossip mama, give me my deets!"

I burst out laughing, clutching my stomach. I probably looked so unattractive with my mouth open and full of chewed doritos but I couldn't care less.

"Oh my god! A starved gossip mama!" I give a loud snort, before finally sobering up. "More like a starved cave woman. Gimme my deets!" I mock an angry cave womans voice and Kels fakes a laugh.

"Hardi har har, now spill." She demands, folding her arms across her chest. Her thin brows raise expectantly.

"What's there more to spill Kels?" I sigh, falling onto my back and looking up at the ceiling. I'd added a new picture of me, connor and xavier. I was in the middle of the two, attempting a double chin whilst Connor made a face that looked like he was constipated and xavier did a girly duck face.

"I fucked a guy prom night, to put it lightly, he ended up stuck in my head-- I see him a number of times after and we feel a pull. He tells me he likes me, and it took a bit but I showed him I like him too and then fucking, I don't even know. It was all so fast a- and suddenly he's telling me that I'm the most beautiful rose out of all roses-" I ignore Kelly's confused face at that. "-he takes me out on a date and gives me the time of my life, calling me baby snd other sweet shit."

"You know he use to call me vanilla. God, it's so cute. It's just, I loved sam and all but drake was-- he is different. I've known him for not even two months and I feel like I-" I stop, sitting up and holding a hand to my stomach.

Kelly is immediately by my side, putting a comforting hand on my shoulder. "Vanessa--"

"No." I cut her off, my nose stinging when my eyes fill with tears. "That fucking asshole made me fall in love with him." I gasped, squeezing my eyes closed.

"Oh nessa," Kelly pulls me down with her. She wraps her arms around me and I wrap mine back around her.

"He lied to me." I cry, shoulders shaking. "What's wrong with me? Why can't I just love a boy and he just loves me back? Why do they always have to lie?"

"There is absolutely nothing wrong with you!" Kelly pulls back, looking me in the eye. "You're brave, you smell good and you're fucking beautiful. Do not let assholes put you down, you got me?" 

I cry even more but nod my head nonetheless.

"I am going to rip that dickbags balls off the next time I see him." Kelly grumbles, pulling me back into a hug. I laugh through my sobs, thanking god that I've got my best friend back.
