Chapter 1: Haunting MemoriesA Chapter by JadeForever
I turned the corner and there he was. Jake his jet black hair usually spiked up was flat and dripping with water. His hands grasped around something so tightly it was in impression that he would never let it go. Two shadows engulfed around each other leaning against the alley wall. I took a step closer, wondering if Jake could hear me at this very moment and take me in his arms. Then I realized that slot was already taken. I saw her straggly blonde hair plastered around his neck. I saw his arms, clutching her back and her fingertips enclosing around his neck. They pulled away after what seemed forever gasping and the girl let out a shriek of delight. Jake, my boyfriend leaned closer and she backed away giggling. I felt sick. Slowly, I backed away, shaking my head in utter disbelief. Clunk! I had backed into dented soda can.
Their heads turned. I gasped and Jake moved toward me calling out my name. I ran and ran till I could only hear faint mutters of Jake screaming my name and telling me to come back. I didn’t look back not once. I tried to get his face out of his mind but all I saw was his lips and arms around a girl that wasn't me. Tears stung my eyes and flew back from the wind. My hair was sprawled around my face twisted in regret and denial. I hoped every tear that poured out hit Jake an wounded him forever. In my room, a voice message beeped.
"Jade, I'm sorry; just give me another chance." Jake's voice cracked. I turned it off before I could hear any more of his voice.
"No I'm sorry, I don't believe in second chances Jake." I replied looking into my mirror to see faint traces of tears settling on the cheeks of a stony face I did not recognize anymore.
I woke up with a start, gasping. My shirt clung to my back which
was coated in sweat. It’s just a dream I wanted to tell myself. I started to
rock myself on my bed flinging the sheets everywhere, frustrated. I had left
all of those memories back home, back in
I closed my eyes and tried to picture his beautiful face in my mind. The first time we met which seemed like just yesterday. A flashback struck me.
I looked at him from the corner of my eye. He was moving toward Zoey cautiously, and lifted his hand only to slump it back down again.
"Cheer up Zoey." I whispered softly completely aware of the stranger's eyes glued to me.
But what i really wanted to say was, “Why can’t my life be normal and not so embarrassing?!!" Tears were streaming down Zoey's face. Her ghostly-pale face was turning red and her once- beautiful up- tilted eyes drooped down. Her raven- black bangs that were cut neatly straight were shaken and blown away. She kept taking gulps of air and sobbing continuously. Everyone had turned to stare at the club. Zoey was sober and kneeling on the floor sobbing obnoxiously in the middle of the dance floor. All of a sudden, I heard the most wretched sound and I turned swiftly just to see Zoey vomit all over someone’s shoes.
"That’s pleasant." I said out loud. I gagged in disgust while stuffing my face with chips to hide my embarrassment. The boy who had been staring at me took a step towards me and I took a step back.
"Zoey's upset because of Brian. They got into a fight." he replied tightly. I felt angry. Who was he? How did he know this and not me? I didn't say anything for a while. Instead of responding, I chewed my food that was still in my mouth.
Then he spoke," I should probably introduce myself; Nick, nice to meet you." I scrunched up my face and went into deep thinking. I knew him from somewhere.
"Ohhh, I remember you now!" I exclaimed. Nick was there the first day I met Brian at Suki's Pizza. He was Brian's best friend. But, it came out more like "Mmhmmmhm."I saw a hint of a smile on Nick's face. Suddenly I felt really stupid. I chewed and chewed and finally swallowed and finally I said something intelligent.
"Hi, im Jade." I smiled shyly. I knew I should of just ended the conversation right there and then, but I didn’t. What could go wrong?
