Love. You hear that word everywhere. It means you would do anything for that person, you would never hurt them and cherish them forever. Love in movies and books are complete utter bullshit. It all seems so simple, but it’s not. The reality about love is that it’s not all easy and cut out to be as you see in the movies, it’s actually fucking difficult. It leaves your heart torn into a million little pieces and you’re the one supposed to fix it and put it back together.

I had fallen in love with a boy who left me nothing, but heartache. His name was Lucas Stewart, he was my first love, my everything and he ripped my heart out not even caring about the consequences. We had been together for ten months, I thought he was the one for me, but thinking about it now I was completely wrong. When I first met Lucas he was so full of himself, but he was incredibly sweet and treated me good. He seemed to good to be true and you know what they say, if they seem too good to be true, you’re probably right.

On my way to mathematics class, I walked through the hallways with my head down. I had been running late and I didn’t want to get lectured by the teacher for not being on time. Running into a figure, the books in my arms fell and I bend down cursing under my breath.

“I’m sorry... I should have been watching where I was going, here let me help you” A voice apologized . I look up seeing a boy with ocean blue eyes and blonde hair. His jawline was sharp and he had to be the most attractive person I had ever seen. My heart flutters and a light blush forms on my cheeks.

“No It’s my fault. I had my head down I should have been looking up” I told him. The handsome stranger held my books in one arm and reached his free arm out for me to take. Softly, I place my hand in his and he helps me up, handing me my books.

“Well then, I guess we’re both at fault here. I was running in the halls when I shouldn’t have... A small piece of advice, you shouldn’t be walking around this school with your head down, they’re a lot of assholes in this school” He warns rubbing the back of his neck awkwardly.

“I guess you’re right” I shrug giving him a small smile.

“Of course I am” He said a smirk playing on his lips and I roll my eyes slightly.

“Conceited much?” I questioned with a raised eyebrow.

“Confidence is key” He answered giving me an irresistible smile that made my heartbeat quicken. “So what’s your name?”

“It’s Margaret Adams” I responded with a smile.

“I haven’t seen you around here, are you new?” He asked and I nod. “Oh! I’m Lucas, Lucas Stewart.”

“It’s nice to meet you Lucas” I exclaimed still smiling at the cute boy in front of me.

“Same goes to you” He replied with a cheeky grin.

Some say that only lovers can break your heart, but that’s not true. Friends can break your heart too and when they do, the betrayal hurts. Emma Gibbs was the name of the first friend I made when I transferred schools during the middle of the school year. As the days passed, I grew somewhat attached to Emma and we had become closer.

I considered her my best friend, that I could tell everything to. Once she broke my trust, I couldn’t believe that she would ever do such a thing and I didn’t want too. Now I consider Emma as a stranger and it’s like I never really knew her, but she knew me and that’s what hurts the most.

We used to laugh with one another when we thought about how we first met and became friends. I had been upset one afternoon and Emma was the only one who was able to make me feel better, welcoming me with open arms. She was very kind towards me and I thought to myself, ‘we’re going to be really good friends.’

I couldn’t believe that my friends are acting like I’ve never existed. I had never felt so alone in my life. Here I was sitting in the school’s bathroom, having a mental breakdown, I felt so small and weak, which I hated. A sudden knock on the bathroom stall startled me and my eyes widened in surprise.

“Hello? Are you okay in there?” I heard a soft voice inquired. Quickly, I wipe the tears off my face, grabbing my bookbag and opening the stall door about to make a bolt for it until someone grabbed my wrist stopping me. “Margaret right?” I keep my head down and whispered a yes. I go to pull away and run out until she stopped me again. “I heard you crying... Are you okay?” Finally, I lift my head up seeing a girl with fair skin and light blonde hair smiling at me. I instantly recognized her from a few of my classes, but I couldn’t remember her name.

“I’m fine, thank you for asking” I said quietly and she frowned.

“I know when a girl says she’s fine, she’s not really fine. You don’t have to tell me if you’re not comfortable” She responds giving me a small smile.

“I-It’s just... My friends I’ve known since preschool. They’re acting like I don’t exist just because I moved. They all said they would miss me and keep in touch, but so far nothing” I explained the reason why I was upset and the blonde haired girl frowned, shaking her head.

“They’re fake. If they were really your friends they would have kept in touch and not act like you’ve never existed to them. Maybe moving away from them was a good thing so you could find some real friends that won’t treat you like garbage” She replied trying to comfort me.

Pondering about what she said for a moment, I realized that she was right. I shouldn’t be crying over some fake friends who never cared about me in the first place.

“Thank you, you’re exactly right” I said with a sincere smile.

“It’s not a big deal and my name is Emma Gibbs by the way. You’re new so I would assume you don’t know who I am” She told me letting out a soft laugh.

“Yeah... This is a big school, it’s hard to remember everyone’s name” I stated awkwardly.

“Hey, how about you join me for the rest of lunch?” She questions with a raised eyebrow. I stood there in silence thinking about her offer before answering her.

“Okay, I could use a friend” I answer giving her a small smile and she returns the gesture.

“Well, a friend I will be.”

I had lost my boyfriend and my best friend all in the same day. I was so devastated that late morning when my parents had to come pick me up early from school. Lucas had broken my heart and Emma stabbed me in the back, I couldn’t stay at school that day. I had missed a week of school because I didn’t want to see their faces and have the consent reminder of what they had done to me. I’ve never felt so stupid and pathetic in my entire life. All of this had happened a month ago and I’ll admit, I’m not completely over it, but I’m not hiding from it either. Now I walk around the campus with my headphones on with my head up high not giving a damn what anyone thinks.

A month ago...

Walking into the school, I had my headphones on humming to the song I was listening to trying to calm my nerves about today. Finals were today in all my classes, I was hoping that all my studying paid off and I passed. I head over to the spot where I meet Lucas and Emma every morning before the first bell rings. When I get to the spot, I notice they’re already there and I’m in shock when I see the scene in front of me.

My boyfriend and my best friend had their tongues down each others throats.

My boyfriend who I’m in love with and who I thought was supposedly in love with me too is kissing my well trusted best friend.

My best friend who I trusted with all my heart is kissing my boyfriend who I was in love with.

I felt my heart shatter into a million pieces and the tears threaten to fall, but I refused to let that happen. Walking up to the two, I poked Lucas shoulder hard causing him to jump up and startle the both of them. Crossing my arms over my chest, I scoff loudly.

“Well, well, well, what do we have here? My boyfriend and my best friend are sticking their tongues down one another’s throats” I spat out in anger. Lucas eyes filled with guilt and regret while Emma stood there with her head down, a frown on her face.

“Margaret it’s-” Cutting him off, I put my hand up and laugh bitterly at him.

“Don’t you dare say it’s not what it looks like, It’s exactly what it looks like” I angrily exclaimed throwing them each a glare.

“Okay... It is what it looks like but-” He began, but I quickly I cut him off again.

“Unbelievable” I muttered shaking my head.

“Margaret please listen, I can explain” Lucas begged desperately. I narrow my eyes at my unfaithful boyfriend.

“Oh? So you have an explanation? Well I would love to hear the bullshit that comes from your mouth” I said sarcastically trying to keep my composure. I was no longer upset, I was angry.

“Emma has been helping me with my needs that you can’t” He explains awkwardly rubbing the back of his neck.

“Your needs... What the hell Lucas!” I shouted causing a few students to look over at the scene that was unraveling before them. “How long has this been going on?” I questioned lowering my voice, giving him a harsh glare and he gulped loudly.

“...About five months” Lucas answered quietly.

“Five months! That's half of how long we’ve been together” I exclaimed angrily my voice raising a few notches. I looked over at Emma whose been silent this entire time which makes me angrier. “You have nothing to say about you sticking your tongue down my boyfriends throat?” I angrily asked walking up towards her, my face inches away from hers and I tilted my head.

“Uh I-I” She stuttered and I scoff.

“You’re supposed to be my best friend and I can’t believe you would hook up with my boyfriend behind my back for five months” I yelled causing her to flinch. I see her compose herself before a smirk finds its way onto her face.

“Don’t take it personally. I can’t control that I’m way better than you” She told me in a bitchy tone making me lose my temper. I threw a punch right at her nose and it immediately bleeds. She holds her nose, staring at me with widened eyes before running to the bathroom. Looking over at Lucas his face was full of shock and I shoot him with a death glare.

“Margaret... That wasn’t necessary” Lucas told me sternly and I roll my eyes at his stupidity.

“I think it was and if it isn’t obvious, we’re over” I exclaimed. I started to walk off and he grabs my wrist stopping me. Harshly, I pull my arm out of his grasp.

“I love you Margaret” He told me. I turned my nose up staring at him in disgust and disbelief.

“No, you don’t... If you loved me you wouldn’t cheat on me with my best friend. You wouldn’t know what love was, even if it stabbed you in the back” I scoffed crossing my arms over my chest.

“I do love you Margaret. I’m so sorry about Emma, please don’t leave me... I know you love me too” He said with desperation in his voice.

“I can’t believe that you would expect me to stay with you after all this. I’m such an idiot for loving you... Goodbye Lucas” I whispered to him. Quickly, I rushed to the bathroom to finally release the tears that I’ve been holding in.

Later that day, Emma told the vice principal about me punching her in the nose and I got suspended for three days. I ended up just skipping school the entire week because we were off for winter break the next two weeks, so I didn’t see a point in going. I didn’t go to school for almost a month, I was depressed and I couldn’t handle going to school, feeling the pain of seeing them together. I mostly stayed in my bedroom and only left when I was hungry, use the restroom or had to freshen myself up. My parents began to worry about me and decided since I wouldn’t talk to them about what happened, I should go see a therapist. I hated the idea of seeing a therapist, so our time together was complete utter silence.

After winter break, I finally decided I had to go back to school. I was done being a coward and hiding away in my bedroom. My first day back I was filled with nervousness that I was going to run into Lucas or Emma, but I didn’t and I was grateful. My first day back was surprisingly good, I didn’t spend my lunch crying in the bathroom. I had gotten some fresh air and walked around the school campus. Once lunch was over, I had to go to my locker to get my books for my last classes and that’s when I started receiving these Anonymous letters in my locker. Those letters usually consisted of

Stay strong, I believe in you— Anonymous.


Don’t forget to smile today. I love seeing you smile, it brightens my day— Anonymous.

I’ll admit at first when I kept receiving these letters every day in my locker, It freaked me out. Now I don’t care anymore, they brought me some type of comfort. I had no idea who had been sticking these letters in my locker every morning, but I was happy to receive them. These letters had made my day and put a smile on my face. I was curious of who has been writing me these anonymous letters and I was hoping I would find out who they were soon.
