Clare knew….she finally put two and together. Her father raped her…hurt her in the most unimaginable way. It all made since now…how she didn't want to sleep by herself and how she didn't want anyone to touch her…guys in particularly.
"It's ok Alli." She held her friend. "He can't hurt you anymore."
"Yes he can Clare…he is….he is everywhere. I can't get away from him. Everywhere I go…he finds me." She cried into her pillow.
"No…he's dead….he's dead…"
"Doesn't matter…..Sav is still here….his re-incarnation. They both won't let me have my peace." Clare held her friend as vented.
"That bitch…" Jenna said as she saw Alli's number in Dave's phone. Why did she always have to go after the girls who wanted her? She loved having her sloppy seconds. She had nothing to worry about because she had Dave around her finger. He didn't suspect a thing…and she was going to keep it that way.
"Bad night with K.C." Bianca put on her lip gloss as Jenna rolled her eyes. They were never friends what made her think they were.
"Bhandari is on the prowl…"
"Like you?" Bianca rolled her eyes. She wasn't faithful to Dave and everyone knew it…even him. He just didn't want to be alone. He was just waiting for her to break it off.
"That's not the point…..he is mine." She walked out the door.
Clare read the pamphlet Alli gave her…."One Heart."
"It's where kids meet up every weekend in the woods to talk….away from the world. Suave gave it to me….."She shrugged.
"So you are going to do it…."Clare asked.
"I don't know if I am ready to talk about it but I want to go see…." She bit her lip. "Dave said it was a good experience. It opens your eyes and makes you feel grateful for….."
Her phone began to vibrate….her mother.
"She has been calling you for a while." Clare ate her sandwich.
"Let her keep calling…I'm not ready to talk to her now."
"You can't keep hiding it has almost been a month…."
"So….." Alli stated. "I will talk to her…but not now…."
Her mother cried as Alli did not answer the phone again. She wanted to talk to her daughter. She missed her…even though they were always against one another. It didn't matter…she was hr baby. She brought her into this world.
She didn't want to make matters worse…but what could she do.
"Are you coming this weekend?" Bianca walked inside the radio room….sitting between Adam and Dave. They had unspoken friendship because they knew so much about each other from counseling sessions. They saw each other at their lowest.
"….hopefully." Adam blushed as Bianca smiled too.
"Good….." She said. "By the way Jenna is on the warpath."
"Why…." Dave asked with frustration.
"Because she found Alli's phone number in your phone." Bianca rolled her eyes.
"She is so paranoid. I'm taking Alli to One Heart this weekend. Can your mom babysit Adam?"
"You don't even have to ask." Adam smiled. Finally Adam was beginning to find his nitch…and it felt good. He was seeing that people could accept him. The real him…and he was educating others too…so ignorance wouldn't spread.
"Why do you guys hate her so much?"
"Honestly it is not that big of a deal to me….we fought over a boy. I got over it…but I still tease her from time to time. Jenna hates her…"
"jealousy is a bitch…."Adam said as they rolled their eyes.
"Tell your friend she better stay away from Dave….." Jenna approached Clare who laughed at the blonde's silliness.
"I like how you are telling me but not her….scared are we….." Clare closed her locker with arrogance.
"No…not by far…." Jenna stated.
"K.C. must not be treating you right." Clare said. Jenna was such a whore. She used to be bitter when she found out they were fooling around together behind her back…now she didn't care. She moved on.
"Me and him are none of your concern anymore…tell your friend what I said….this is a warning."
"Ummm I am glad that you are coming…." Bianca with him to their class.
"Bianca…..the bad girl….stuttering." Adam said as she blushed. "I never thought I would see the day."
"I'm not that hard….like I make it appear. I just had no other choice than to be that way. I had to survive…fend for myself….."
"You don't have to do that anymore Binx…." He reassured her as they found themselves wanting to hang out more with each other. Which was crazy because she use to want his brother in the worst way. She wanted him so bad that she hated another girl who she thought was completion…Bhandari.
Needless to say…he turned out to not be worth their time.
"Binx….." Adam waved his hand in front of her face.
"Sorry I zoned out." She said as they sat together in the chemistry lab.
Jenna did this…..Alli looked at the stern face of Prinicipal Simpson. She was called into the his office because apparently she was starting confusion again….SHOCKER.
"Alli…..do you have anything to say about these accusations."
"Why do you always side with her just because she cry?"
"alli…I am trying to be neutral."
"Well you are not…." She said with force. "Jenna is lying and I haven't skipped any class or gotten into any trouble. That doesn't seem off to you….that all of a sudden….I'm starting stuff again."
"Alli you both are teenage girls…one day you are friends…the next you are not."
"I am definitely not her friend…and never will be….I am just tired of always getting blamed…for stuff I didn't do. Please you have to believe me….please Mr. Simpson."
Simpson knew she was telling the truth. He could not deny the fire in her eyes. She hadn't been this outspoken in a while…a long while.
"Alli you are excused."
"Sweetie do you really have to go this weekend?" Jenna asked as he walked her to class. He could only roll his eyes her.
"Are you still upset with me? Look I'm sorry I looked through your phone."
"Jenna you have no idea what trust is…you don't even know what it's like to care about someone….."
"….what?" She stopped him.
"Have fun with K.C. this weekend…." He walked off. She thought she was so slick. She thought she could manipulate any guy by batting her eyes and flipping her hair.
