Dislaimer: I own neither of the characters in this story.
"You're never going to stop!" she yelled, her eyes blazing. "Are you?"
He didn't answer, his gaze staying on the floor as he refused to react to her words because he knew, if he did, she'd only get more angry.
"Do you care about anyone other than yourself? I hate you. I swear to god I hate you. I hope you rot in hell. This is that last time I put up with your shit. I'm done. Do you wonder why no one likes you? Why everyone practically hates you? They do. And guess what? I do too. Everyone told me not to get involved with you, but I did anyway. But I am done. You are going to end up alone and bitter, and that won't be enough," she chose the words she knew that would hurt him. The ones she knew would make him hurt and angry. She wanted to hurt him so badly, he deserved it. She hated this man. And nothing would change that.
"I am not going to end up alone."
"Yes you are," she said evenly. "No one wants you. No one has ever wanted you."
"You wanted me," he replied, still glaring hard at the floor.
"I did," she allowed, but her voice was still thick with venom and anger. "But you've lost me too. You've lost the one person that actually cared about you. You have nothing."
Zach clenched his hands, his uncut nails digging into the skin of his palm. He shook his head.
"People care about me. I never needed you."
"No they don't," she seethed. "You have always needed me. But I never needed you. I've always been too good for you. I'm a better person then you'll ever be."
"That is not true."
"It is," she replied. "Nobody cares about you. If you died right now, do you know how many people would show up to your funeral? None. Not me, not Grant, or Bex. They all pretended to like you for my benefit."
"No they didn't."
"Go ahead, deny it. I dare you. Act like you don't care, like you never loved me. Do it, it will only make you feel worse," her eyes blazed and the words did their job cracking Zach into a full fledge anger.
"I NEVER LOVE YOU!" He yelled, standing up and towering over her, hoping for her to back down.
"Say what you want, I already know you're a liar," she said, unfazed. "All you do is lie. You've convinced me of that. I did love you, but like everything in your life you ruined that. You've corrupted yourself, you're unlovable."
"I don't care," Zach said. "I don't need anyone else."
Cammie's mouth twisted into a sickening twisted smile. "Then you'll be alone. Then you won't have anyone else holding you back. You'll only have yourself. You're nothing but a compulsive liar, you never even try and tell me the truth."
"I really hope you rot in hell," she cut him off. "I really hate you." He knew he knew she meant every word.
"I don't care about you," he said, unsure of whom he was trying to convince. As much as Cammie wanted to stay and yell at him some more, she knew she had said what she had needed to say.
"Goodbye Zach, if I never see you again, it still won't be long enough" she snapped before walking out of the kitchen and the apartment slamming the door behind her.
Zach stood, his body shaking but he did not once show a sign of weakness he knew better than that. Cammie's words had cut to the bone with obvious truth. She was right, he had just lost the last thing he had every truly cared about. He'd had people he'd care about in his life, but he'd managed to push them always. She was his last hope and he had screwed it up again, as she had told him.
He lied to her. He always lied to her, even if it wasn't necessary. He couldn't tell the truth. He was a compulsive liar and that would never change.
He was unlovable. Cammie was right when she said he had nothing, no one. Now he was all alone. Because no one cared about him. And he deserved it, the way he treated people, the way he lied to all of them.
He knew if he tried to go after Cammie and begged for her forgiveness and promised to be better he could have her back in his life and maybe keep her as well. He knew in his heart she still cared for him, no matter her anger.
But he wouldn't go after her because he had too much pride.
He was too broken, too corrupted for anyone to be with. He was nothing but a broken man, whom everyone had tried to fix and had failed miserably because he refused to let himself be helped.
So he would live alone, doing as he pleased. He could do whatever he want, even though he'd done that anyway, and no one would care. No one cared about his harshly unapparent good side so he was right in assuming no one cares about his obvious bad side.
He'd lied to everyone in his life and lost them all.
And now, it seemed, he was just going to have to live with that. He had been too damaged to fix, not that there was anyone else willing. She'd been the last and he had driven her away and hurt her. And he wished he could feel remorse or regret but he couldn't. He couldn't bring himself to care enough to regret hurting her.
Zach had taught himself long ago how to avoid feelings of guilt or any feeling at all. He was ruthless and relentless in hurting people, even if that hadn't been his intention in the first place.
But now he was alone, and he could never truly hurt anyone anymore.
AN: Okay so I was kind of extremely angry when I wrote this because my brother always lies. Its like he can't tell the truth, like about anything. So I wrote this to get my feelings on paper. I know I usually write happy endings but for now this is a one-shot. But maybe when I'm less angry I'll go back and give them a happily ever after. But for now this is all you get sorry. And If any of you are wondering Zach didn't like cheat or anything, he just lies to her about everything and she was done with his crap so she just gave up on him.
Sorry for the angst and anger but I guess this ads to my writing technique and hope you guys can maybe relate if you've ever met someone that lies all the time even if the don't need to.
Please give me feedback!
