“Andrew hit me!” I yelled running down to Alex, who was staring at the blank tv. I could tell he was upset, he never stares at the tv unless its on or he’s playing a game.
“What’s wrong?” I asked sitting on the couch next to him. He threw his phone at me and I read all the messages and I looked at him and hugged him. Sarah just dumped him and he was completely heartbroken. He loved her with all his heart… how could she break up with him? He got up and walked to his room. Andrew came downstairs with a confused look on his face.
“What’s wrong with Mr. Responsible?” he asked sitting on the chair across from me.
“Sarah dumped him…bad” I say looking at the floor. He nodded and I went up to Alex’s room. He was cuddling with a teddy bear, laying under the covers, in pajama pants. This really hurt him, Austin can probably cheer him up. I quickly ran to my room to get my phone and call Austin. I had to wait for him to get here which took forever. While I was waiting I got dressed into short shorts and a pink t-shirt. I braded my hair and looked in the mirror, I looked somewhat presentable. The number one thing I’m missing is…bracelets. Alex caught me cutting once and gave me a whole speech and everything, telling me to stop but it isn’t easy to just quit. I put on my few bracelets I could find and the doorbell rang. Andrew was too ‘busy’ on his phone; yeah facebook he’s totally busy. I walked downstairs and Austin was standing there in his superman shirt and skinny jeans.
“Alex is all upset…cheer him up?” I smiled pushing him into Alex’s room. I sat out in the hallway listening to what Austin said. I finally got up and went into Andy’s room. He was sitting on his bed, playing a video game.
“What’s with all the bracelets?!” he asked surprised. Wow Alex didn’t tell him… that’s a surprise that he kept my secret. I looked at the floor like it was the most interesting thing ever. He pulled me onto his bed and pulled them off.
“Why….” he said looking in my eyes. I could feel the tears pouring down my face. He wiped them away as they fell. I wanted to get up but I knew he wouldn’t let me leave until I told him.
“Well I don’t feel like I’m good enough for everyone. Adam is never nice to me, you aways hurt me. School is another story. The guy I like probably doesn’t like me back. I cant stand it anymore, I’ve tried to when everyone went out for dinner once. I never eat you already knew that, the most I’ll eat is a medium fry from McDonald’s so…” I said my voice shaking. He looked at me and hugged me, at first I thought he was going to hurt me but he was being nice to me. I could hear him sniffling, while I went to walk to my room.
“Hey Cass, promise me you wont try?” he asked looking hurt. I shrugged and walked to my room to my phone going off. Just another hate message, I usually get them around this time so I was used to it. I felt the tears slip down my face one by one as I went behind my bed. Even though I promised Andrew and Alex I wouldn’t cut anymore, I’m gonna break that promise. I slid the blade down my wrist a few times. At first it hurt but after the third one I couldn’t feel any pain. I heard the door open and I jumped, dropping the blade. The footsteps got closer and closer until I saw Alex standing there. He didn’t want to see this… who would want to anyway?
“You broke our promise!!” he yelled shaking his head. I went to stand up but he was already out the door. What if Austin asks why he’s pissed off?
