I woke up with the sound of my phone. There was a message from an unknown number. I didn’t want to but I opened it. I felt as though I just saw someone murder someone else. My phone almost dropped from my hands. There it was in front of my eyes, the thing I had always feared. Noah and Scarlet kissing each other. This can’t be real. Tell me this is not real. Why would he do something like this? This is not real. Why? I felt tears streaming down, I don’t wipe them. My heart shattered into a million pieces which I don’t think would be able to stick together again. I just stayed there crying helplessly as I was before. I know Scarlet was beautiful but do you just tell someone you love then and then leave them for someone who is more beautiful... Is this how it works? I felt like throwing the phone way but I didn’t. I felt like going to Noah and slapping him in the face for doing this but I didn’t. I wanted to die but I couldn’t. I stayed there until the door opened. He came in.
“Why are you crying Lettie?”
he comes close and is about to wipe the tears.
“Don’t touch me!”
I say hatefully. I wish I could move away but I couldn’t. He takes a step back. I never shouted at him like this. My eyes and heart were filled by nothing but pain.
“You perfectly know what happened. If I didn’t get the text, I would never have known and you would have continued cheating on me.”
he stops as he sees the picture in my hand.
“Go on dear, why stop when you can make a perfect excuse. She kissed you. You were drunk. She seduced you. You still love me. Blah, blah, blah.”
I say as I still felt the tears. My head was hot and I couldn’t think properly. It was the same effect as drinking I think. I spat what came to me.
“I never knew you could or would do something like his. I trusted you even after all this. I thought you loved me. I thought you would never leave me or cheat on me. I thought you would never kiss someone when with me. Guess I was wrong.”
I say turning my head away as I didn’t want to look at him anymore.
I say as I cry more.
“I am not your Lettie anymore Noah, don’t say you love me, I don’t need any more lies. I am not your Lettie anymore. Leave me alone. It’s over. Go to Scarlet. I hate you Noah!”
the words hurt me more than it hurt him as they came out but they did. He eyes for the first time showed an emotion I couldn’t recognize. He turned away and left. I laid there crying until the nurse came and scolded me for crying. She wiped my tears and told me to take care. I thanked her and drifted to sleep.
I heard everything when Noah and Lettie were fighting. I didn’t knew Noah would something like this. But Lettie shouldn’t have said that she hates him. But how dare he? I swear I will throw him off a cliff. I don’t know what to do. I felt tears in my own eyes. Wow Sarah, this is the best way. Cry. Your best friends just broke up and rather than doing something you cry. God Job. Keep it up. I felt like I should go in but I didn’t. I stood there in the hallway alone. Then Josh and Rebecca came talking and laughing.
“Were you crying?”
I say. Josh saw right though the lie.
“Let’s take a walk...”
We leave Rebecca in the hallway, she said she would just go home and bring some flowers for Lettie. Just as we got out Josh asked
“What is wrong?”
“I don’t even know how I should tell you...”
I sigh. Then I take a deep breath and tell him everything I heard. He stood there frozen, his eyes wide.
“He did that?!”
“Lettie said she hates him...? He must have hurt her a lot to make her say something like this.”
I nod again not knowing what to say.
“What do we do now?”
I ask crying.
“Oh Sarah, calm down...”
he hugs me and wipes my tears.
“We have two options.”
He says when I calm down.
“Either we get them solve it on their own or we talk to them...which one?”
“I think we need to talk to Noah about why he did what he did.”
“Good idea. We will call him tomorrow at Cafe Lit.”
He says. I call him. He doesn’t receive the call.
“Noah, we have something to tell you.”
I lie as I text him.
text comes back.
“We will tell you at Cafe Lit.”
I text back.
“I can’t I am busy...”
“He says he is busy.”
I say to Josh.
“But we can go there and talk about it thoroughly”
