I was pissed. Extremely. I walked straight to the boys' dorm room and demanded to know where Jacob was.
"Peeing," Dan said, fear in his voice.
Was I that intimidating?
I walked straight into the boys' bathroom.
"Shit, Haley!" Nick, a student, screamed, zipping up his pants.
Jake didn't notice. He daydreamed when he peed. I tapped his shoulder. He turned around. He screamed, zipping up his pants as well.
"Calm down. I've seen you're dick," I said.
"What are you doing here?" he gasped.
I wasn't thinking. This wasn't the way I wanted to tell him but it all just came out.
"My stupid mom said that I can't actually act when I go to Australia this summer for my acting course!" I blurted.
I slammed the brochure on the counter.
"Whoa... what acting course? Australia?"
"Yeah, I'm going to Australia for a year starting this summer for acting school."
"What the fuck? You didn't tell me! You can't be going away for a fucking year!"
"I am, though!"
"Why didn't you tell me, Hales?!?"
"Shit. I guess I forgot," I said, slapping my head sarcastically.
"You can't forget something like this!"
"I didn't dumbass! I was going to tell you. But... I didn't know when. I knew you'd freak!"
"Are you seriously going?"
"Yes. I am."
"Oh my fucking god," he whispered, turning the other way.
"Jacob, don't get all dramatic. It's not like it's that big a deal. It's my career!"
"So your career is more important than us, right?"
"I didn't say that."
"Well, you're choosing it over... us."
"You mean over you. God, can you calm down?"
"How the hell am I supposed to calm down?"
"I don't know. If you were as ambitious as me_"
"I would understand? Holy shit. I am ambitious, bitch."
"You did not just say that."
"I'm not gonna fight about this, ass hole."
"Then don't. Go have fun in Australia. I don't care."
"Yes you do."
"Are you seriously gonna continue this?"
"Fuck you, Jacob."
He rolled his eyes. But, it wasn't anger in his eyes. It was pain. But, I didn't realize it then. I was furious. I middle fingered him, kicked the garbage can hard, and stormed out of the bathroom.
