I spent the whole week in a zombie state, I cried, cried and cried myself to sleep every day and night, I still couldn't grasp the fact that David broke up with me, my heart still hurts anytime I think of it,

I haven't heard or seen him since that night. I left him countless messages and voicemails, but he still hasn't answered any of them or called back. I wish I could take back all those harsh words I said to him, he didn't deserve it.

I was brought to reality by the door slamming open, "ALISON BECKY STONE." Olivia barged into my room annoyingly

"Just leave me alone." I cried and dipped my head into the covers.

"Get your tiny ass off that bed, before I make you, girl." she pulled off the covers, "Get the hell up!!"

I sighed and sat up slowly.

She shook her head as she stared at me,

"You look like shit."

"Oh! Jeez, Thanks. Now leave me the hell alone," I screamed. Was it so hard for everyone to understand that I want to be alone, they just keep bursting into my room like I was some depressed child in need of attention, it's sickening.

"Ali." she crawled her way into the bed with me,"Crying won't solve anything," she whispered soothingly.

"What do you know?" I hissed.

"Look, if I had a jar for every hard break, I'll be rich. But I assure you, one day you're going to look back on this day and regret the moments you spent pounding over it's not worth it."

"I want to be alone," I whispered, deepening my head between my legs.


"Just leave me the hell alone, olli." I screamed, it was like no was listening to me.

"Scream all you want, but I'm not leaving you by yourself. Who knows what evil thoughts you've got crawled up in that head already."

I groaned, pulling the covers over my head and turning to the other side of the bed, hoping she would just give up and leave.

She stayed silent and that was good enough for me, I just hid under the covers sobbing silently,

"It's Mr. Hertz, isn't it?"

I snapped to her,

"I wasn't wrong after all." She laughed.

"I don't know what you are talking about?" I mutter, giving her the most clueless look I could come up with at the moment.

"I had my suspicions long before now, but I got my answers at your welcome back party, when you two couldn't take your eyes off each other, I'm surprised no one else figured it out," she said.

"I still don't know what you're talking about." I continued to deny it. I pretended not to have a clue of what she was talking about, but I seemed to be bad at that too.

"Ali, I'm not here to judge. Girl, you should be proud, any girl would die to be in your place, that man is a work of art. I'm so jealous right now."

At this point there was no need to hide it anymore. I gave her a faint smile, "Thank you, I guess." I said and wiped my tears. I was glad I could finally tell someone.

"You're always welcome, Alison." She smiled, "So, give me the details? How long have you been dating? And I mean every detail."

"Just a few months.." I whispered.

I smiled as I recalled the first time we kissed and how eager I was the next day, "He's amazing olley?" I let out with a huge grin on my face, I was aware David loved me, he gave up his entire life to protect me from Matt, "I love him so much." I cried to olley, "He worries I might resent him in the future if we go on, and I tried to tell him that would never happen but----" I cut myself short due to the choking tears.

Olivia reached and gave my hand a tight squeeze,

"I saw the way he looked at you when you were not looking, like you meant the entire world to him, which only he's crazy about you too. A love like that doesn't come by so easily....You shouldn't give up too easily."

I nodded and pulled her into a hug,

"Thank you for understanding. It feels so good to talk to someone about it."

She laughed and rubbed my back, "I'm still mad you kept it from me." She broke away, "but we will discuss that later." She wipes my tears with her left hand,"no more crying."

I chuckled and repeated after her, "No more crying." that was all the little strength I needed,

I jumped out the bed and grabbed my jacket from the closet, "Where are you going?" Olivia raised her brow at me suspiciously.

"To get him back," I yelled as I stormed the room.
