"Alright. Next page here we go," I muttered under my breath.
So today is the first day of school and I don't know how I'm going to do this without you. No one understands what I'm feeling, not even Cierra or Estrela. I want to put this behind me, but how can I if I still feel like you are here and I'm going to see you everyday. All these memories are just pointless, they don't mean anything, same with pictures. They are just a waste of space, only memories. They don't mean anything in reality. This is a new year and I'm going to be strong, also prove everyone that I'm over what happened. Even if in reality I'm not.
Later today: Yes, I'm writing like this. I'm going to tell you how the conversation between me and Cierra went.
Cierra: So I got you a chicken burger because I know how much you love it.
Me: Thank you. I really appreciate it, but what's the catch?
Cierra: Because I need to tell you something and I know how judgemental you get when you're hungry. But you are not going to believe this, but George came over last night and apologized. And... I took him back.
Me: Are you kidding me? You do know that this was a huge mistake, right? He is probably going to cheat on you again.
Cierra: Angela, don't say that. Look, he made a mistake, everyone makes mistakes from time to time.
Me: But he has cheated on you so many times, possibly more than five. A guy that keeps cheating on you over and over again, is definitely not worth it. How can you take him back? I mean I don't think that anything justifies cheating.
Cierra: You haven't even been in a relationship, so don't think you're some expert. You don't even know how hard it is to be in a relationship.
Me: I read a lot of romance books. But this is one of the reasons why I don't want a boyfriend. Because it's too damn hard and they are always so damn complicated. And in the end you break-up.
Cierra: But I thought in every romance book the couple ends up together. Plus, believe it or not, but I still love George and I know that he loves me too.
Me: Well, maybe it's not enough to make your relationship work. Do you want to keep getting hurt?
Cierra: It's more complicated than that. Besides, George is my first boyfriend and we have been together ever since 7th grade. I want to make it work. But I know that it really isn't about me and George, Angela.
Me: What are you talking about?
Cierra: I know that this is a new school year and you're upset about-
Me: Stop it! I don't want to talk about it. I just know what's best for you, Cierra, and it's definitely not George. You deserve better.
Cierra: I know you do, but I can handle it.
Me: If he cheats on you again then don't bother coming to me crying.
Was it rude of me? What I said?
I know that it probably was, but I didn't know what else to say. She and George have been together for nearly five years, so I understand why she doesn't want to break it off, but he acts like a dick, he treats her as if she's some garbage. I know that you're not here anymore to say something, but I wish you were here because I don't know how I'm going to do this without you.
