Chapter 21: Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater

3K 54 26

Heat floods to my face and I want to scream. All this time I've been a fool! I can't believe this! How could I have been so stupid?

I crawl out of the hot tub with a scowl on my face. I grab a towel, still clutching the phone tightly in my fist. I begin stomping towards the door but a voice stops me.

"Woah there, what's got your panties in a twist?" I hear Cody chuckle. 

This is not a laughing matter.

"Your beloved Tanya is a slut."

"Well that's awfully accusatory." Cody laughs it off.

"Your girlfriend's been cheating on you." I shove the phone in his cocky face. But he doesn't react.

"Don't you see it?" I practically scream out of frustration.

"Jen and Landon?" he looks at me weirdly.

"No you idiot! Look at the background!" For some reason, even after he sees the photo, he doesn't seem surprised even in the slightest.

"I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for that." He folds his arms.

"Ugh, you're insufferable!" I yell, turning around to run up the stairs and stomp all the way to Rolfe's room.

I open the door with rage fueling my system. I have to restrain my fists when I see him walk out of the bathroom in nothing but a towel.

"Hey babe, is something wrong?" he asks with an innocent confusion on his face.

That's it! And in that moment, I snap and attack. In .4 seconds I have him pinned down on the bed and I'm continuously throwing punches at his chest.

"Lying!" Punch! "Cheating!" Punch! "Dirty!" Punch! "Scumbag!" 

"What the heck Skylar? Stop hitting me!" Rolfe engulfs my fists within his to stop me from punching him. Curse his large hands. 

"What's this all about, Sky?"

"You tell me! Look at this photo!" I gesture with my nose to Jen's phone.

As soon as he sees the photo, his face turns pallid.

"Look, I can explain!" Rolfe begs.

"How you've been cheating on me with that skank who not only got me kicked off the cheerleading team but has been my sworn enemy ever since middle school?"

"Baby, just let me explain."

"No! I don't want to hear it! I don't listen to dirty cheaters like you!" I won't stop screaming so he covers my mouth with his hand as he flips us so he's the one straddling me.

"Baby, this photo was taken before we started dating. Tanya and I had a thing before I started dating you."

"Wuaidt... wgaht?" I try to speak through his hand.

"If I take my hand away, you promise to hear me out?"

I nod and he removes his hand. "What are you talking about? How could you ever have a relationship with that slut!"

"Yeah, this was taken at a house party during the summer."

I instantly deflate, suddenly embarrassed. All I can muster to say is "Oh."

"Yeah. Baby, I could never cheat on you."

"I still don't like the fact that you were exchanging spit with Tacky Tanya!"

"You can't say that! We weren't even dating then."

"I can say whatever I want to say! How could you stoop so low?"
