CHAPTER 8 Thunder and Vacuums

800 26 15


Avi just kissed me.

And I liked it. It made me feel good inside, he left a spark against my lips. When he pulled away and let go of my hands, there was silence.

The lighting was still coming every five seconds so it wasn't hard to see him. I wish he wouldn't have pulled away, I liked the feeling of it. He was standing there still looking at me with those eyes.

"I'm sorry Kacey. I'm sorry for being so mean to you. I was just aggravated ok? I never meant to hurt you." He sounded like a sad child.

"Aggravated?"  I asked.

"I was aggravated about what happened eight years ago."

"What happened?" I asked confused.

He looked at me like he was about to lose it. I tried to back up but I was already against the wall. Yikes!

"You know what happened! You're the one that did it to me!!"

"I don't know what you're talking about!" I screamed back.

"Stay here, I'll be right back." He said.


How the hell did she not know what I was talking about. I ran out of the room, downstairs to the laundry room. I flicked on the flashlight and looked around until I saw a pair of jeans I was wearing.

I picked them up and searched through the pockets. I got the picture that I ripped to shreds and ran back upstairs. Then went to a closet in the hallway and searched for some tape.

Running back in the room, I taped each piece of the picture on the wall. I turned the flashlight on and pointed it at the picture. She looked at it before speaking.

"That's the picture from homecoming. You, me, and Asher." She said."But I don't understand how this aggravates you."

I walked across the room and sat on my bed. I ran both of my hands through my hair. Why didn't she get it? Why couldn't she figure out what I was saying. I took in a deep breath.

"You hurt me Kacey."


"No, let me finish."


"We were best friends since like...third grade. I never thought of you as a girlfriend until we reached the eighth grade. You know, everybody hits puberty and then they start to look different. I thought you were gorgeous. I knew you didn't think of me that way until freshmen year."

"Avi please, I'm sorry." She said sitting down next to me.

" You told me that you liked me, and I said the same. But I said that we should wait so we wouldn't ruin our friendship. You agreed and said that you would wait for me no matter how long it took."

"Avi sorry, please don't talk about it." She was starting to remember.

"It was a few weeks before homecoming and I finally decided that I would ask you out by asking you to homecoming. I knew the perfect way to do it. The next day I brought flowers to school. I started walking towards you but then stopped because Asher showed up."

"Avi." She said begging.

That was the thing, I didn't want to stop. I wanted her to know exactly how I felt.

"I heard him ask you to homecoming and you said yes. My heart shattered to pieces. I was so confident that you would say yes to me. I ran out of the school and ripped the flowers up."
