I looked down at my feet. I was a bit miserable. Alex and Ashley? Someone kill me now.
Ashley and I were really good friends a while ago, until she stole every person that was important to me. Ugh, that slut. Excuse my language, but it's the word that suits her best.
I twiddled with my thumbs as I sat on Romy's couch next to Alex. A part of me wanted to ask what he thought of Ashley, and the other wanted to just keep quiet until the day was over.
Finally, after 5 minutes of debating this is my mind, I decided to speak up.
"So uh... You know that girl Ashley, right?"
"What is she to you?"
"She's a friend, I guess. I mean, she's really pretty and nice and great to be aro-"
"So you like her?" I asked, biting my lip (a habit I have).
"I guess you could say that..."
There was a huge lump in my throat and I blinked to fight back tears. I ran to the kitchen where Sam and Romy were and turned on the sink. Romy just stared at me while I splashed my face with water. I could feel my eyes filling with tears as I turned to face her.
"Sam, can you excuse us for a moment?" she asked.
He nodded in agreement and walked over towards Alex. She looked at me for a bit before asking, "he likes her, doesn't he?"
I bit my lip and nodded. Right as I did, tears flowed through my eyes. Romy walked over and hugged me as I sobbed. I'd liked Alex for a while, a LONG while. Now, Ashley just comes and she takes everything away as usual.
I told Romy that I wanted to just go home and she offered to walk me there. I declined and ran out the door. I walked all the way home through tons of tears. I just want the day to be over.
