We are not Friends

Arriving home I went straight to our bedroom proud of myself for not getting lost. I didn’t know where Nathan went and I really didn’t care. It was pretty obvious to me that I had been having an affair with Ryan and I was pretty positive Nathan was fucking around too although I had no hardcore evidence. Why the hell were we even married?

I needed to talk to Callie. She would know what the hell was going on. Glancing down at my phone I saw it was after midnight. Sighing I sat it down deciding it would have to wait till morning. Walking in the bathroom I took off my dress throwing it in the corner before taking off my makeup and changing into some pj's. Crawling in bed I didn’t question why Nathan had yet to come upstairs, in fact I was glad. I didn’t have answers to any questions he might throw at me.

I slept horribly, my mind could not comprehend what was going on. I had high hopes of waking up the next morning back in my bed, however, that was not the case. Besides the fact I barely got any sleep, I was still upset about what had happened at the party. I was not ok with that guy Ryan walking up to me like that was something we had done many times before. That was not who I was or what I was about.

Getting out of bed I went to the bathroom then grabbed my phone searching for Callie’s name. When her name wasn’t there I freaked out, she had to still be here, she had to be in my life. Swallowing I dialed her old number not even really sure how I remembered it.

I wasn’t really surprised when she didn’t answer her phone, she was famous for having her phone on do not disturb. I sent her a simple call me asap 911 message. I waited several minutes before groaning in frustration, maybe she was at work? Getting up I made my way downstairs and found the kitchen. Nathan had put on some coffee so I made a cup and dug through a cabinet until I found something suitable to eat for breakfast.

As I headed back upstairs my phone vibrated. Looking down I saw I had received a text from Ryan. Part of me didn’t even want to read it but the nosier part of me insisted I see what it said.

"What the hell was up with you last night?

I made a face reading it, what did he mean what the hell was up with me? Before I could even think clearly I found myself replying, “I don’t even know who you are.”

He replied back immediately, “what the fuck are you talking about?”

I frowned, again typing, “I don’t know you please stop texting me.” I knew it was stupid but I didn't know how else to make him stop

Ryan responded back fast, “what the fuck do you mean you don’t know who I am? We have been fucking for close to 6 months now.”

My heart literally stopped beating in my chest. I mean I had figured I had been having an affair but seeing it in plain sight suddenly made it all real. My phone started ringing and my initial thought was to throw it. I let out a sigh of relief seeing Callie’s name. I had programmed her number in my phone as soon as I saw it was missing.

I answered the phone with a hey and was about to start on my tangent of thoughts when I heard her coldly say, “what?”

I automatically knew something was wrong just by the tone in her voice but I still kept talking. “Callie I don’t know what the hell is going on, I woke up and...”

Callie interrupted me, “Madison you know we’re not friends anymore what the hell do you want?”

My mouth dropped, how could we not be friends? What kind of messed up reality was this? “What do you mean we aren’t friends, what happened?”

Callie snorted at me, “really you’re asking me what happened?”

I was beginning to think I was in a nightmare, “Callie I really don’t know. I don’t know how I even got here. I don’t remember marrying Nathan. I don’t know how I met him. The last thing I remember is going to the fair with you.”

Callie was silent for several seconds, “look Madi I don’t know what the hell Nathan has you smoking but you need to go sleep it off or something.”

The click of the phone shocked me, had Callie just hung up on me? She was supposed to be my best friend. We were like sisters and she had hung up on me when I needed her the most. I dialed her number back praying she would answer but her phone went straight to voicemail. I sat staring at my phone praying for her to call me back but after about 10 minutes I began to realize that wasn’t going to happen.

I called her one last time and waited for her voicemail to beep before I began talking to her in the only way she may ever listen to me. “Callie, I don’t know what the hell happened between us. You're my sister, you're my bestie for life. I honestly don’t know what is going on. I woke up married to Nathan and everything is wrong. It’s so wrong. I...I honestly have no memory of ever meeting him. I mean wouldn’t you think I would at least remember my own wedding day?” I felt more tears fall from my face and I knew I was sobbing and I could only hope that she would be able to understand me.

“I don’t know what I did to you. I would never do anything to lose you as a friend. This person I woke up being isn’t who I am. Callie I’m scared. Do you remember that night at the fair, do you remember me telling that old gypsy something about being married to someone famous and her telling me to be careful what I wished for. I think she is fucking with me. She gave me my dream, but she messed it all up. I don’t know how to wake up. Do I try and fix things? This is so fucked up Callie, please call me back, please I’m begging you. If our friendship ever meant anything to you please call me back”

Hanging up with her I went to the bathroom and washed my face with some cool water. I looked horrible. My face was red and it was evident that I had been crying.

Walking back in the bedroom I buried myself under the covers. I didn’t like the person I apparently was now, but in all reality it wasn’t me, this was not me. I decided I needed to find out what the hell was going on and fix it to the best of my abilities. I mean maybe that’s how I woke up form this nightmare.
