15A Chapter by ♥ Courtney ♥
I finally calmed down.
“What did he do” Tyson sounded upset. He lifted my chin to look at him.
“Nothing it was my fault” I said shaking my head
After all it was.
“Lexie you were absolutely petrified” he said
“He did nothing wrong ok. He just told the truth and I got a little spooked. I human after all” I said.
Tyson walked me to math and I sat down next to Alec.
“Are you alright” his eyes were filled with concern
“Yes” I said smiling
He smiled back and we both listened to the teachers mind-numbing lecture.
The bell rang after what seemed like an eternity and I walked to Spanish. I was quiet for the most part. Every now and then I would reassure Matt that I was in fact fine. At the end of the period I walked to lunch slowly. I wasn’t exactly hungry. 2nd period left too many thoughts in my head. So many questions were left unanswered. Unfortunately I wasn’t paying attention to my surroundings because of it and I walked smack into an open locker.
“OOMPH” I fell to the floor. The locker was unused and left open.
I sighed. This seemed to go along with my day, I slowly got up and rubbed the area where the locker hit. Not much damage seemed to be done luckily. I walked to my art class and sat down on a row of lockers across from it. I shut my eyes. Everything came flooding back. Kyle’s pain filled eyes…his malicious laugh…the way he acted so much like a creature. I squeezed my eyes shut more trying to bring back the memories of his smile…his real laugh…how much he cared for me… but every time I would get one good memory his wicked smile would flash across my mind again. I shook my head.
Suddenly I felt a cool hand grasp mine lightly. I opened my eyes to see Kyle. His eyes were red from crying. He hung his head after a second.
“Lexie….” He breathed
I was silent. I had no words for a situation such as this.
“I-I am so sorry” he said
“Why’d you act that way” was all I managed to say
“Lexie…when you thought I didn’t care for you I " I just lost it. I was absolutely livid. I love you so much and for you to stare me in the eyes and honestly say that I didn’t care for you-…I couldn’t handle it. I let the demon inside take me. I felt as if I had no fight left in me if the one person I was fighting for didn’t think they were worth anything to me…” he said
“Then why Ally?” I asked
“It was my mom’s idea…she’s been a friend of the family for years. My mom set it up I swear…why do you think when I said Ally the guys didn’t question why” he said staring desperately "Theres some things about my life that I just can't bring myself to tell you yet. I'm going with Ally because I'm not allowed to get any closer to you" he said sadly
“Oh…but I thought..” I started
“What that I would willingly choose another girl over you?” he said sounding a bit hurt
“yes” I whispered
“You are absolutely nuts” he said
We both laughed.
"What do you mean, you can't get any closer to me?" I said confused
"Lexie, theres....someone else....In a manner of speaking. Its so complicated and messed up I don't even know where to begin. All I know is that I love you, more than you'll ever comprehend. Im just not allowed to be with you" He looked down.
Tears stung in my eyes but I swallowed hard. I had to be strong.
“And what about this Alec guy” he said after a few moments of silence
“What about him” I said
“You said yes to prom” he said
“Only because you didn’t ask” I said
“Only because I have to go with Ally” he countered
‘darn lost that one.’ I thought
“Still you said yes to him...there has to be a reason” he said
“He is sweet and I wasn’t about to go alone. “ I said
“How do you know he is sweet” Kyle said
“We went to a movie and out to dinner and he was a perfect gentleman” I said
“UGH! You went on a date?” he said over dramatically
“I guess” I said
He looked upset
“Again I thought you liked Ally, and hello you just told me you have someone else. I mean god Kyle” I said starting to get annoyed.
"Im sorry" he whispered
"Me too..." I said softly.
