The tears continously flowing out my eyes. my face on my pillow, my phone vibrating over and over again, my stomach heaving slightly as each sob swam out of my mouth. No one was home, as usual, and I was crying to myself. But then someone knocked on my door, which took me by surprise.
"It's open," I managed to say. Jared stood there smiling, until he saw my face. Mascara running, eyeliner smudged, lip gloss half on my lips, half on the pillow.
"Nothing," I said. He came closer, but still kept a distance.
"Well, whatever it is, you can tell me."
I just shoook my head, shoving a pillow onto my face, allowing myself to cry softly, even with someone in the room. My phone vibrated again. I could hear Jared's footsteps come to my bed and felt his arm reach for the phone.
"It's from Mickey," he said. He just read the text message.
"Mel, baby, I'm really sorry. I love you. A lot. I thought you knew that. Please please please please please_"
"Stop! Just go on with the rest."
"Forgive me. You know how Amber is. I wouldn't do anything to hurt you. Please forgive me. I really love you. Please answer me. I love you. I love you a lot more than you think."
Silence. I dropped the pillow, walking to Jared.
"Why did you kiss Amber?" I whispered. This took him by surprise. He shrugged hesitantly.
"Do you like her?"
"No... not really."
"Who do you like?"
"I like no one."
He started to move back heading out the door.
"Do you like me?"
Then suddenly he stopped and nodded. He then walked out the door, smiling once at me then closing it. I smiled to myself. I grabbed my phone a texted back to Mickey.
