Chapter 11

As the weeks went by, Emma and I saw less of Cole. I would see him sit by himself at lunch, but that was it.

One Friday, as Emma and I sat down to eat, I noticed Abby walking over to Cole.

"Uh, Emma, what's Abby doing?"

"Um, well, I hate to tell you this, but they got back together."

"What?!" I yelled.

"I'm sorry, Alexa. I wanted to tell you. But I figured if I told you how upset and miserable he was, you woulf feel more guilty. And I know you still need your space. When Abby heard about what happened, she jumped at the chance to be with him again."

"Emma, this is awful. He can't be with her. I know we're on a break, but I just don't wanna see him even more miserable."

"Yeah. But there's nothing you can do, Alexa. You guys are on a break, so he can date whoever he wants."

Emma was right. I couldn't tell him who to be with. I mean I did tell him I needed space, and I was trying to decide if I wanted to give him another chance. He was still a great guy. Sweet and kind and funny. But what he did to Josh at his party really scared me, and I didn't know if he was like that all the time or if he was just being overprotective.

I still needed time to think.

I still couldn't stand the thought of seeing Abby with cole, and she knew it.
Wednesday after school, she walked up to me with her minions, flipping hair.
"I told you I would get him back. You made him so miserable he crawled back to me."
"Well, it won't last long. You're just a rebound. He doesn't love you."
"That's what you think. Come on, girls."
As I watched her walk away, I felt my face get heated.
Ugh, why was she such a bitch? I knew exactly what she was going to do. Manipulate Cole and make him do whatever she wants him to do. And sleep around like the slut she was. And I couldn't say anything to Cole or do anything to convince him to break up with her. Because we were on a break. It was just so frustrating.
"Maybe you should talk to him," Emma said at lunch. "I mean you're the one who said you needed space. He still likes you. And he is sorry for what happened at Josh's house. I'm sure he'll take you back."
"I don't know, Emma. I don't know yet if I want to give him another chance."
"Alexa, you and I both know he's not like that. He was just trying to be a good boyfriend."
"I know. Maybe you're right. Maybe I should give him another chance. But what if he doesn't want me back?"
"Alexa, have you seen how miserable he is with Abby? You know he wants you back."
"I don't know. I think I still need more time."
