Who the heck did he think he was dealing with? No....he had it ALL wrong. Of course, I got mad. I had a bad attitude and I still do. Justin apologized to me. I was just like "Whatever". Justin would still joke around with me and other people in the grade telling them that I was a stalker. My friend Mia actually had a friend named Cailey who was in Justin's homeroom. She told me that Justin said I was right about when his mom was coming down the hallway. When he read that email, his mom actually was doing that and that is why he disappeared off email. WHOA! I had no idea. I was just joking with the dude. A couple of weeks went by and everything was fine. I actually had developed a crush on Justin because Amariah didn't like him AT ALL anymore. They couldn't stand each other for some reason and weren't even friends. Unfortuantely, my crush on Justin didn't even stand a chance of lasting long. Remember Kayla, Amariah's best friend? Well, she accidentally took Mia's laptop home and Mia took Kayla's laptop home. Kayla was the type to be nosey. She was going through Mia's laptop and found a poem. The poem basically stated how she liked Justin and she didn't know what to do because I liked him. I was hurt when Kayla told me about the poem. She knew the kind of special relationship me and Justin as so did everyone. Mia only really talked to me and Cailey. Kayla knew that it couldn't have been someone Kailey liked so she figured it was me since Mia and I were so close. The next day, Mia and I were waiting for our parents to pick us up. She was on her laptop and went outside to see if her parents were there. Her laptop just laid there on the bench in the plaza and I REALLY wanted to see if the poem was there. Kayla even told me where it was on Mia's laptop. I wanted to look at it for myself and see if it was about Justin. I thought maybe Kayla could be wrong and it really was about someone else. Thoughts just raced through my mind on whether I should look. I opened Mia's laptop and went exactly where Kayla told me it would be. Kayla was right. The poem was there. It was pretty obvious that it was about me and Justin. I only got the chance to read half of the poem when Mia came running over and snatched the laptop out of my hand. I tried to push her so I could read the rest, but I couldn't. I was too hurt in the heart to push anything. I wanted to cry. I felt nothing but betrayal. She was lying to me this whole time talking about she liked a guy named Mencer. How could she do that? She hurried and shut her laptop off. By that time, I was furious. I went off on Mia.
"WHO WAS THAT POEM ABOUT?", I yelled. She didn't even have the nerve to answer me. Really?
"ANSWER ME MIA! .......... OH MY BAD, MAYBE I SHOULD LET YOU GO HOME AND YOU CAN WRITE A POEM ABOUT IT AND THEN YOU LET ME READ IT TOMORROW? IS THAT OKAY WITH YOU? HUH, MIA? DON'T BE AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING ! YOU WEREN'T AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING IN THAT POEM, NOW WERE YOU?", I yelled. At this point, there were tears in Mia's eyes.
"I'm sorry Christina. I really am. I should have told you", she managed to say while shaking her head. I felt bad for yelling at her but that didn't fix how hurt I was. I did absolutely nothing to her to make her treat me this way. I just decided to calm down for the sake of both of us.
"Why didn't you tell me? I thought we were supposed to be friends.", I said. Tears were now in my eyes.
"We are. I just didn't know how to tell you. It's not as if it matters. Everyone knows about the kind of relationship you and Justin have. I don't think anyone can come between that."
"No, you mean the relationship Justin and I had. I think this is just a sign to let this whole Justin thing go. It brings too much trouble. You can go ahead and continue to like him, seriously. Its not that big of a deal. I am done liking him! ",I said with a smile on my face. That is the day I officially stopped liking Justin! Or so I thought........
