Jason looked up at me confused and surprised that I was speaking to him. The barbie that sat next to him was seething with anger. I could tell that she wanted to say something, but Jason kept his hand laced with hers holding her in her seat.
Before he could even answer I got up and walked out of the lobby and made my way to the chapel. It took me a few minutes to find it, walking in made me sad I knew why I was here, and it wasn’t fair. I fell to my knees at the front of the room and sobbed, this was not supposed to happen to Raven. She was the fun one the one who had your back no matter what. She was just a great person.
“God, if you can hear me, please, please, don’t take Raven from us. She’s too special of a person to go this young. I need her, we have so much still to do, please.” I said putting my face in my hands to try to muffle the heart wrenching grief I was feeling.
“Sky,” Trevor whispered lifting me off the floor. He put me down on the phew and sat next to me. He stared at me until I looked away. Why were things always so intense with him? I swallowed my fear and looked up at him.
“What happened to Raven? Why is my best friend lying in that room dying?” I asked tears rolling down my cheek.
“She was coming home from buying all the things I needed for my graduation party.” He said a tear falling from his face.
“A drunk driver swerved into her lane and hit her head on. The driver died on the scene. Raven was hanging on but barley. She’s been in surgery for hours; all the waiting is driving me crazy. I can’t even think of the possibility that she may not make it. I refuse to think of my life without her.”
I wiped the tears from his face making my heart beat fast in my chest. He grabbed a hold of my hand and held it. What was happening? The look on his face said no much but he said nothing. I needed to get away from him.
I pulled my hand from his and stood up. He stood up too, but I put my hands up to tell him to stop. This was all too weird, “So Destiny seems nice.” I said looking up at him.
“I mean she beats barbie any day.” I said with a frown.
“I seriously don’t know what that chick’s problem is? I don’t even know her? What could I have done to her to warrant such anger?”
“Your breathing,” He chuckled.
“She knows that with you here her place with Jason isn’t so secure. Everyone knows how much he loved you, how much he loves you still.” He said meeting my eyes.
“You seem to have this effect on people, they either love you or they hate you. There’s no in between with you.”
“Carrie’s just jealous, I for one would have loved to see you lay her on her ass.” He laughed.
I smiled thinking that it would have been nice to put her in her place. I knew that this was not the time or the place to start a fight. She would get what was coming to her, karma was a very lovely thing.
“There you are?” Destiny said opening the door to the chapel.
I’ve been looking for you.” She smiled at Trevor.
Her forced smile told me that she didn’t want Trevor alone with me, or around me. What the hell was going on? Was it I hate Sky week? Carrie’s anger I could understand but why would Destiny have an issue with me?
“I’m going to head back ” I said never looking back at Trevor.
I made my way back to the lobby, but I still had not gone in. All this drama was just too much for me right now. I walked down the hall and out the front doors of the hospital. I needed to get some air. I looked up at the star lit sky and thought back to happy times. We were so carefree with no worries back then and now I was so lost.
I sat on the bench outside so lost in my thoughts that I didn’t even hear Carrie walk up.
“Awe, is poor little Sky scared to sit in the same room as me. There’s no one out here to defend you now.” She smirked.
This girl was crazy if she thought I was scared of her. Trevor was protecting her from me, not the other way around. I stood up from the bench I was sitting on and waited for her to come to me.
“Don’t do this. It’s not the time or the place” I said giving her a chance to walk away.
“You think that your just so special, everyone loves little Sky.” She spat angrily.
“Jason belongs to me now.” She said pushing me hard.
“I’m not going to fight you for Jason. But I will knock you the fuck out if you touch me again. Think very carefully before you make your next move.” I warned.
She choose wrong, she threw a punch and busted my lip. That was it, this girl was about to get what she was asking for. I threw a punch and blood started gushing from her nose. I hit her again and again, I had her blood all over me.
She tried to swing back but I was too fast. She hit me a good time making my eye swell. I could deal with a black eye and busted lip. She on the other hand looked like hell. Strong arms wrapped around my waist and pulled me back. I swung my arms around trying to get free but his grip on me held.
From the look on barbie’s face I knew It had to be Jason. Why did being in his arms feel so good? I leaned my body back against his chest loving how it felt to be in his arms again. What was I doing? There was a reason we I had broken up with him.
I struggled in his arms until I realized that I was not going to get loose.
“Let me go,” I said anger in my voice.
“You have no right to put your hands on me. Go pick up your broke barbie from the floor.” I said finally pulling free.
“All of this,” I said pointing to my face and then at the barbie trying to get up” is because of you.”
“Raven is dying, and I’m out here fighting with your crazy girlfriend who thinks I still want you.” I yelled angry.
I wanted to hurt her and him. I knew what I was about to do was wrong on so many levels, but I didn’t care.
I pulled Jason to me and kissed him softly on his lips.
“What the hell is happening here?” Trevor yelled pulling me out of the daze I was in.
I looked up to see the million emotions in Jason’s eyes. I just couldn’t help but give her one final blow.
“I guess he still belongs to me,” I said walking to the parking lot both Trevor and Jason following me.
I turned around and they both stopped. “Leave me alone, both of you. I’m walking home. You both have girlfriends to take care of, especially you Jason. I gave her a good beating, she deserved every bit of it to.”
Trevor grabbed my wrist and pulled me to his car, “you’re not walking. Jason, you should probably check on Carrie.”
He opened the door and made me get in. We sat in silence the whole ride to my house. I had nothing to say to him or Jason. If I never saw either one of them again it would be fine with me. When he pulled up to my house he turned the car off and looked at me. I started to open the door to get out when he stopped me. “Do not get off of this car Sky,” He said anger in his voice.
“You are not the boss of me Trevor. Since when you think you can tell me what to do?”
I opened the door and rushed to my front door. He got out after me and blocked me before I could get inside. He picked me up and carried me back to his car. He pinned me against the fender with his body.
“Look at me Sky,” he said running his hands through my hair gently. I couldn’t do what he was asking. He made me feel things that I was not ready to admit to. I continued to look at the floor, so he picked me up and put me on the hood of his car.
“Look at me Sky,” He said again. I looked up into his ocean blue eyes and I froze. He looked torn, he ran a finger over my busted lip and placed a gentle kiss on my swollen eye. “Even like this you are beautiful,” He whispered making my heart skip a beat.
“What are you doing Trevor? You have a girlfriend. Please just go and don’t come back. I pushed him hard enough to get free and ran to my front door. I opened it and closed it fast behind me. I leaned against the door thinking about what kind of horrible person I was.
