Chapter 4 - Anastasia’s POV
Later that night... I got home from Cervantes Coffee Roasters and I’m really exhausted, my new friend Michael didn’t leave my job until I finished my job, it was very sweet. Michael asked me if I could hang out with him this weekend to get to know him.
I walk into our apartment as I see Leah, Maddison, and Harper are watching a movie in our family room.
“Hey Ana.” Harper smiles big as she pauses a movie on our TV screen and she asks in a curious voice, “How’s work so far?”
“Good, I met a new friend.” I shrug as I walk toward our family room couch and I sit down on our family room couch next to Maddison.
“Oh... who is it?” Maddison raises her eyebrows in confusion as she chews her pasta.
“His name is Michael Kutcher.” I smile softly and I say, “He came to my job to have pumpkin frappe.”
Leah nodded and she says, “I think you have a crush on him.”
I roll my eyes as I giggle softly and I say, “No, I just met Michael... he is thinking about becoming a chef.” I shrug as I grab a chip from our coffee table and I bite one chip and I say, “I mean... Michael doesn’t feel really happy about football.”
“How come?” Harper raises her eyebrows in confusion and she says, “I thought he liked football.”
“Yeah, he does but he isn’t sure if it fits him... but his family isn’t sure about if he wants football or not.” I hear my phone rung as I grab my phone from my pocket and I look at my boyfriend calls me as I roll my eyes and I get up from our family room couch and I say, “I’ll be back.” I walk out of our family room as I walk toward my bedroom and I put my phone on my ear after I press the answer button and I say, “Hi.”
“Hey Ana.” Henry smiles softly and he asks in a curious voice, “I’m here.”
“What?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion and shock, I couldn’t believe he is here... at my damn apartment...
“Yeah... I’m at your apartment.” Henry smiles softly.
I sigh deeply as I walk out of my bedroom and I walk toward our front door as I open our front door and I notice that Henry is standing outside of our apartment and I didn’t really expect that he’s here...
“What are you doing here?” I step backward as I open our front door wide so Henry walks into our apartment.
“Why can’t I see my girlfriend?” Henry shrugs as he smiles softly.
I scoff in disbelief as I close our front door and I turn around to my annoyed boyfriend as I look at Henry with an annoyed look and I ask in an annoyed voice, “Since... when...?” I see Henry sighs deeply and I say, “You haven’t seen me for a few weeks or months because I was so busy with my job, unpacking my stuff here.”
“Because I was so busy at school.”
“Since you don’t want to go to the same college with me!” I spat at Henry as I look at Henry with a glaring look.
“Really?” Henry shakes his head as he sighs deeply and he says, “You know I came here to stay with you for a while to cuddle with you.”
“I have classes tomorrow and work too.” I shrug as I walk toward my bedroom and I hear Henry following me.
“I will wait here for you.” Henry shrugs as he walks toward my bed after he walks into my bedroom and he asks in a curious voice, “Why didn’t you have our pictures?”
“What are you talking about?” I raise my eyebrows in confusion and I ask in a curious voice, “Why don’t you just worry about it later?”
Henry scoffs in disbelief and he asks in a curious voice, “Do we have a party tonight?”
“No.” I sigh deeply.
I know Henry since I was sophomore year in high school, we fell in love immediately. But he had been cheating on me.
But I’m really shocked that he’s here because he stopped calling or texting me for a few weeks or months, I’m really mad at him for that, he loves a party so much. He would just be drunk or high...
“Then we can go to one party.” Henry shrugs as he looks at me and he smiles.
“I told you that I have classes and work tomorrow.” I raise my eyebrows in anger and I say, “I don’t want to be late for that.”
“Fine... I’ll go alone.” Henry walks away from me.
“Whatever.” I scoff in disbelief.
Later that midnight... I woke up because someone called me on my phone as I sigh deeply and I open my eyes as I raise my eyebrows in confusion after I got an answer from someone called me.
“Anastasia?” A girl called me...
I raise my eyebrows in confusion and I ask in a curious and tired voice, “Yes?”
“Oh... okay... is Henry your boyfriend?” A girl asks me again.
I sigh deeply as I sit up slowly on my bed and I say, “Yes.”
“I think you need to come over... Henry is so drunk and he’s making out with someone else.” A girl sighs deeply and she says, “I had to let you know that because I took Henry’s phone and called you.”
“Okay... thank you... I’ll be there.” I mumble softly as I pull my phone away from my ear and I get up from my bed as I grab my light jacket from my desk chair after I put my sweatpants on and I grab my car key and walk out of my bedroom after I put my slipper on and I walk toward our front door as I hear someone walk out of her bedroom.
“Anastasia?” Maddison walks toward me.
I sigh deeply as I turn around to Maddison and I say, “I have to pick Henry up... I’ll come back... you can lock it.” I smile weakly as I walk out of our apartment after I open our apartment front door and I hear Maddison close our apartment front door as I walk toward my car and I beep to unlock my car as I open my driver door and I get in my car.
Why the hell did Henry do that? I swear Henry never learns about it.
20 minutes later... I arrived at the party that the girl called me as I walk into the room and I notice that Henry is having sex with the girl as I sigh slowly and I walk toward Henry as I put my hand on Henry’s shoulder and I pull him away from her.
“What the hell?” Henry slurs in an angry voice as he looks at me with a smug look and he says, “Wow... you came!”
I roll my eyes and I say in an angry voice, “You’re drunk and you had sex with her!!”
“No, you are coming with me.” I snap as I grab his clothes from the floor and I say in an angry voice, “Put your damn clothes on now!”
“Fine.” Henry puts his clothes on as I see another girl grabs her dress and leave.
“Are you fricking kidding me?!” I shout as I look at Henry with an angry look.
“What?” Henry shrugs as he puts his shirt on and he says, “Oh come on, let me have fun.”
I sigh deeply. I really don’t understand why Henry acts like that... it made me feel so angrier at him and I don’t trust him at all after what happened...
“I’ll wait outside.” I mumble softly as I try my best to not break down in tears because I’m angrier at him. I thought... no... I really thought that he would be mine... forever.
I walk out of the room as I walk toward the stairs and I walk down of the stairs as I walk toward the front door and I walk out of the house.
I sigh deeply as I get into my car and I turn my car on as I see Henry walks toward my car.
I swear I’m gonna scream at Henry for cheating on me.
Don’t get me wrong... I’m hurt, I’m angry, I’m emotional, I’m upset, and I’m confused...
“Babe... you can’t get mad at me if I cheated on you.” Henry raises his eyebrows in confusion.
I scoff in disbelief as I shake my head and I say, “You cheated on me!!!! I can’t fucking trust you!”
Henry rolls his eyes and he says, “That’s why I’m tired of being innocent for no reason.”
“What are you talking about?” I look at Henry with an angry look for a few seconds and I’m driving to my apartment and I say, “You cheated on me... like 6 times!!!”
Yes, he cheated on me a few times and I kept going back with him... I really don’t understand why he keeps doing that to me.
I shake my head as I let my tears fall down on my cheeks and I ask in a curious voice, “Do you ever love me?” I don’t hear Henry’s voice for a few seconds as I nodded and I say, “Okay...”
“No, I love you.”
“Really?” I raise my eyebrows in anger and I say, “If you love me, then you wouldn’t cheat on me repeatedly!!” I shout as I shake my head.
Henry won’t say anything...
I couldn’t even believe that he won’t say anything to me, it hurt my damn feelings!
30 minutes later... we are in my bedroom since Henry is kind of sober right now, we are screaming right now.
“Babe, you know you always fricking come back to me all the damn time when I cheated on you!” Henry shouts at me as he looks at me with a glaring look.
“Yes, I fricking did!!! Because I kept going back with you but you cheated on me... again!!!! How the fuck I can trust you again?!” I shout as I take my jacket off and I put my jacket on my desk chair and I say in an angry voice, “We have been together for fucking 6 years and you kept going to different girls to date!!!!”
“Well, I don’t give a fuck about it, Anastasia!!! I came here to see you!” Henry walks toward me and he says, “You know I fucking love you!”
“No, you don’t!!!!”
“Yes, I fricking do!!!” Henry screams at me as he looks at me with an angrier look and he says, “I’m sorry for cheating on you but I’m not fucking sorry that I had sex with these girls!!!”
“Oh my god!” I whine in anger and I put my hand up in an angry way and I say, “That’s why I went to the doctor a few weeks ago!”
I found something wrong with me because my stomach has been bothering me for a few days and I had to go to the doctor to find out why I felt that way, then I told my mom about it, they wanted me to break up with Henry.
“Like what?” Henry raises his eyebrows and he asks in a curious and frustrated voice, “Do you ever think about having a future with me?”
Wow... he does really ask me a dumb question after he cheated on me... really?
“Nope.” I shrug as I shake my head and I say, “You just broke my heart for sure... plus... I have nothing else is wrong with me.”
Thank fricking god...
“Wow... that’s why I had sex with these girls... I got one girl pregnant.” Henry sighs deeply as he sits down on my bed after he walks toward my bed.
“Wait... what?” I look at Henry with a shocked look and I say, “You got her PREGNANT?!”
I couldn’t fucking believe that he said he got her pregnant... I’m so angry with him, I hate him and I hate his gut.
“Are you FUCKING kidding me?!” I walk toward Henry as I look at Henry with an angry look.
“I’m sorry but you didn’t have sex with me a lot often.”
I laugh bitterly and I say, “Wow... you got her pregnant and I didn’t have sex with you often?! Okay...” I pause to calm myself down and I say, “You know why I didn’t have sex with you often... because I am fucking here at college and job...” I raise my eyebrows in confusion and I ask in a curious voice, “What are you doing for these months or weeks?!” I see Henry keeps quieting and I say, “Right... you have been sex with these girls and got one girl pregnant! I couldn’t believe you!” I pause as I close my eyes for a few seconds and I open my eyes and I say in an angry voice, “I trusted you and I gave you everything that you wanted me to! I let you took my fucking virginity!!!! But nope... you took advantage of me!!!!” I scream at Henry as I shake my head and I let my tears fall down on my cheeks after I let my tears fill up on my eyes and I say, “I hate you, Henry!!!”
Henry sighs deeply as he shakes his head.
“I think you need to leave.” I mumble softly as I keep holding my tears back in my eyes after I wipe my tears away from my eyes and I say, “I think you need to leave.”
“Okay...” Henry sighs deeply as he gets up from my bed and he walks out of my bedroom.
Henry turns around to me as he looks at me with a confused look and he asks in a curious voice, “Yes?”
“We’re over... for good! Don’t come back to me no more.” I see Henry nodded as he walks away from me and I break down in tears and I start crying hard.
I scream loud as I have been crying so hard, I’m angry and hurt a lot because he shouldn’t have cheated on me or got another girl pregnant behind my back!
I see Leah and Harper walk into my bedroom and I shake my head. Harper walks toward my bed as she sits down on my bed and holds me tightly as Leah went back to Maddison’s bedroom to wake her up.
Harper rubs my back with her hand while I cried out of my eyes as I shake my head and I say, “Henry cheated on me again and he got another girl pregnant.”
Harper sighs deeply as she keeps quiet while she calms me down because I could tell Harper and Maddison want to beat Henry up for that.
Next day... I called my boss that I couldn’t go to work because I had a personal reason and my boss already knew and let me have a day off for 3 days. Henry kept calling me many times, I blocked him on any social media. I have been crying on and off all day... Maddison invited my brother and sisters to come over while Maddison, Harper, and Leah left to go to their classes.
I see Violet walks into my bedroom after I have been crying out of my eyes all day long.
“Hey Ana.” Violet looks at me with a worried look.
“Hi.” I sigh deeply.
“I’m going to beat Henry up!” Derek walks into my bedroom as he shakes his head.
I wince softly after I hear his voice about Henry and I say, “Derek, don’t...” I sniff softly as I sit up on my bed and I say, “I’m really angry.”
“I know you are.” Derek walks toward my bed as he sits down on my bed and he says, “I just don’t understand why Henry does that to you.”
I sigh deeply as I shake my head and I say, “I don’t deserve it.” I sob softly as I shake my head and I say, “I gave him everything that I had!”
Sophia strokes my hair softly since my head on her shoulder and she says, “We wouldn’t say ′I told you so′ because it will hurt you ever more.”
“You can.” I sob.
Derek sighs deeply as he shakes his head and he says, “We will stay here with you guys for a few days okay?”
“Okay.” I sigh deeply and I say, “I’m going to take a nap...”
“Okay... we will be here.” Violet smiles softly.
