Chapter 11

My Past:

I was 16 years old; I was in my junior year in high school... I see Henry walks toward me as he smiles softly at me, I knew him since freshman year, we had been together for 3 years, we fell in love fast and we knew that we loved each other so much.

“What’s your plan today?” Henry raises his eyebrows in confusion as he sees I put my books away in my locker.

“I don’t know but I know that I have a bunch of homework to do.” I sigh deeply and I ask in a curious voice, “Why?”

“I want to take you out to the movies.” Henry smiles as he looks at me with a happy look.

“Ummm... okay...” I shrug and I say, “Since it’s Friday today...”

“That’s why I asked you to go to the movie with me tonight.” Henry winks and he says, “I’ll pick you up at 7:45pm ok.”

“Okay.” I see Henry kisses my cheek as he walks away from me and I see Maddison, Leah, and Harper walk toward me and I say, “Hey girls.”

“Hey Ana.” Maddison smiles big and she asks in a curious voice, “What do Henry want?”

I shrug as I close my locker door and I say, “He wants to take me out to the movie tonight.”

Harper nodded and she asks in a curious voice, “Do you guys want to go to the mall tomorrow?”

“Sure!” I smile big.


Later that evening... I’m at home since I got home from school, I did my homework and I had a small snack before going out to the movies with Henry... I see Violet walks into my bedroom since I’m getting ready to go out with Henry.

“Hey Ana.” Violet walks toward my bed as she sits down on my bed and she asks in a curious voice, “Where are you going?”

“Movie with Henry.” I put my boot on and I ask in a curious voice, “Is mom and dad home?”

“Yeah, they are cooking dinner.” Violet raises her eyebrows in confusion and she asks in a curious voice, “Are you going to eat at the movie?”

“Maybe... I’m not even sure.” I shrug as I see Violet nodded in understanding and I say, “I probably would grab foods on way back home.”

“Okay, that’s fine... but if you do really hungry then I can save your foods if you get hungry at night.” Violet smiles softly.

“Awww... you’re the best!” I smile big as I sigh deeply and I say, “I’ll see you later.”

“Okay... have fun!”

“I’ll try.” I shrug as I walk away from Violet.


45 minutes later... I arrived at the movie with Henry, he seems off, I don’t know why I would find out what the hell is going on with him... he acts really weird.

We are sitting on the chairs and we are eating our food while we are waiting for the movie to start.

“Henry?” I see Henry looks at his phone as he smiles on his texts, he didn’t really smile when I text him at all...

“Hmmm?” Henry didn’t look up at me.

I sigh deeply as I grab his phone from his hand and I ask in a curious voice, “Okay... you seem off and didn’t say anything to me at all, what the fuck is going on with you?”

“Nothing... give my phone back.” Henry looks at me with an annoyed look.

“No.” I shrug as I look at Henry with an angry look.

“I’m not playing with you... give me my fucking phone now...” Henry looks at me with the angriest look as he puts his hand on my leg since I’m wearing my jeans and he squeezes my leg tight.

I wince softly as I look at Henry with a scared look and I say, “But I need to know what the hell is going on with you.”

“You know it is nothing fucking going on with me ok?” Henry snaps as he grabs his phone from my hand harder and he sits back on his seat to relax.

I sigh deeply as I shake my head and I say, “I hate you.”

“Fuck off.” Henry scoffs in disbelief as he’s using his phone to text someone.

I raise my eyebrows in shock as I shake my head and I say, “I can’t believe you say that to me.”

Henry rolls his eyes and he says in a warning voice, “If you don’t keep your mouth shut, I’m gonna leave you here, I’m not gonna drive you back home... period.

I close my eyes tightly to calm myself down as I keep quiet and I open my eyes as I shake my head and I say in a soft voice, “Fine...”

I don’t know why Henry acts like this, he’s being so rude and mean... I thought we don’t have any problems at school but he starts to abuse me with mental and verbal abuse but he did put his hands on me once before but he apologized to me and he acts like nothing is going on between us...

I slowly feel scared around Henry sometimes...

I don’t know Henry anymore...


3 hours later... Henry dropped me off at my house after he screamed at me because I keep interrupting him about the movies and he got really angry and he was going smack my face but he didn’t... he kicked me out of his car and he didn’t wait until I went inside so he knew I was safe but he just drove fast and didn’t give a fuck about me.

I walk inside as I decide to go to Sophia’s bedroom to talk to her, I see Sophia is still up on her bed as she’s watching a movie.

“Hi... can I come in?” I see Sophia nodded as I walk into her bedroom and I look at Sophia with a sad look.

“Ana... what’s wrong?” Sophia raises her eyebrows in confusion and worry as she presses the button to pause her movie.

“I don’t know what’s going on with Henry, he acts so differently toward me and he didn’t really pay attention to me at all.” I sigh deeply as I walk toward Sophia’s bed and I sit down on her bed.

“Why didn’t he pay attention to you?” Sophia raises her eyebrows in confusion.

“I have no idea... I mean... I don’t know what I really want to do with my relationship with Henry...” I shake my head.

“Well... if you’re not really happy with Henry then you need to think deeper about what you really want to do with your relationship with Henry... I know you seem depressed a lot.” Sophia sighs deeply and she says, “I want to see you be happy, that’s all I want...”

“You’re right.” I smile weakly as I sigh deeply and I say, “I’m going to bed.”

“Okay... goodnight Ana.”

“Night.” I smile softly.

Sophia is right about Henry... I’m not even sure if I really want to stay with him or not... I have to figure it out.
