Chapter 7 - Kelly
My hands folded into tight fists. For the first five seconds, I thought my mind was playing tricks on me or maybe I could be dreaming again. These days I could hardly even distinguish between dreams and reality. Maybe my brother was just stalking her and nothing more.
No way! It couldn't be
My jaw clenched repeatedly. Liam pulls away and left her smiling to herself. The sight of her smile made my blood run cold. I matched up to her and she froze up.
"Care to tell me what the hell I just saw" my voice went up the roof.
"Martha I can explain" she said too quickly
"You have one minute to do that" I try to calm myself, hoping that the answer she would give me won't push me over the edge.
"Am sorry I kept this from you, I wanted to tell you earlier" my eyes go wide
"Oh my God" I seethed
"Liam and I are dating, I swear I was going to tell you" my hands flied to my hair as I ran my fingers through it vigorously. I couldnt believe what I was hearing.
"Am sorry" she tried to touch me but I backed away fast.
"How long has this been going on?" I asked, emotions whirling around in my head.
"Two months" I yelled, attracting stares to both of us. "Two months" I yelled again, slamming my fists against the locker behind her. I wished it hit her. My heart turned cold in just a minute of betrayal. I never believed she could keep such a big secret from me, but she did.
"I didn't want to keep this from you but with all that was going on, it just wasn't the right time to tell you" what she said made absolutely no sense. She lied, and had been lying to my face for the past two months. I couldn't even look at her.
That made me think, with all that had happen, all Liam could think about was having a girlfriend. Unbelievable! Mom had just died then.
I stared at her straight in the eyes "I don't know you" I took two steps backward "you're not a friend, a friend wouldn't do this" and with that, I stormed off.
I found myself in the girls bathroom, banging my fists against the tiled wall, raking my fingers through my hair, Screaming out my frustration to the wall. I never thought my best friend could stab me in the back. I was both torn apart and furious. As I stared at myself in the mirror, I could literally see the anger seething through me.
*I told you*
In just mere seconds I had forgotten what the voice told me about my anger. It said it was going to make their deaths closer.
"I don't care anymore" I said to myself. Did I just say that? I still love them, but they betrayed me, they stabbed me right in the chest.
For a minute, I was stone cold but when I found my bracelet sparkling from the mirror, my heart leapt out of my chest.
"I do care", I ran out my of the bathroom looking left and right not knowing which way to go. I have never also been so confused in my life, I was angry with the both of them and I didn't have any dream this time. Again I looked left and right then decided to go right looking for kelly. I checked all the classes she could be in, the locker room, the library but she was no where to be found. Frustrated much, I ran out of school gate and to my surprise she was there standing wanting to cross to the other side. I looked to the other side and saw a truck moving with full speed towards Kelly. I ran with all the speed I had and pushed her backwards, both of us falling to the ground as the wind that followed the speeding truck blew our hair to a mess. I was breathing so heavily and so was she. We both stood up staring at each other like strangers.
"Thanks, you saved my life" she put on a slight smile.
"Dont be too happy and thankful, I might not be able to save you the next time" I said as coldly as possible and walked away.
