Torn In Between
"What is it? I don't think any "secret", you could tell me right now would make my day any happier, but cha know. Go for gold. I'm waiting!", I said. "I.. I can't tell you", he sighed. "Well then why am I wasting my time standing here?", I asked, turning around. "Because unlike a lot of guys here I don't want to hook up with you", he said. "Excuse me? Should I take that offensively?" I asked. "No way. That kinda came out wrong. Look, I'm Josh Hennington, I want to be your friend and nothing more", he said.
I swallowed. "Alright, but why can't you tell me the secret? Can it seriously be THAT bad?", I asked. "It seriously can. Let's just say, Trevor was never a troubled teen. Something else happened and now he's here but if the school board finds out his secret, he's out of this school, and he'd be sent to jail", he said.
"That bad?", I asked shyly. "That bad..", he nodded. "I'm going to bed. My head hurts. See you later, Josh", I said. "See ya", I heard him say as I walked off.
I plopped myself down on my bed and clicked the TV on. I watched about five minutes of the news and then the dorm room creeked open. I turned around and there stood Blake and Trevor, both being dragged in the room by Ashley. For her to be as small as she is, she was pretty strong.
"What?" I asked, glaring at them both. Trevor was the first to speak. "Sorry. You just.. You just don't understand how bad I want to tell you what I have to hide..", he said. "What are you talking about?", I asked. "I cant tell you.. If I did, you'd think I was stupid!", he said. "Already do.." Blake said.
Ashley tightened her grip on Blake's arm. "OUCH", Blake exclaimed. "I already think both of y'all are crazy. Go ahead and tell me", I said, keeping direct eye contact with Trevor.
He bent down and hugged me. I patted his back. I looked over his shoulder and Ashley looked at me with a puzzled look on her face. Blake just smiled in jealousy.
"Y'all need to leave. Bye", Ashley said pushing them out the door. "Boys are so stupid", she said plopping down beside me on the bed. "Really the news? Change this shizz. We need to watch Honey Boo Boo or somethin..", she said, typing in the channel number, and sure enough there was Honey Boo Boo.
"Sorry about earlier.. Like I said before, Boys are just stupid. They have cooties", she laughed. I sighed, and turned over to where my stomach faced the cieling. "They're jealous of each other and have been since Trevor moved here. But you wanna know something weird? Trever doesn't have a birth certificate. He just kinda popped up.. He's mysterious I guess you could say", she said taking a big bite out of her chocolate chip cookie.
"That's weird though.. They let him in even though he didn't have one?" I asked. "I guess. I dont know what he did to get here, and very few people know what he did to end up here", she said.
"Some guy came and was talking to me after all that happened", I said. "Yeah that's Josh. He ran out right after you did. He's so adorable. As in like sweet I mean.. He's so not my type", she said. I could tell she was lying though. Lying through her teeth.
The next morning the smell of bacon and eggs woke me up. I smiled and walked to our kitchen to find Ashley and Josh all dressed up. I rubbed my eyes. "Go get dressed. We got church in an hour", Josh said. I put a thumb up and walked to my closet. I slid the door open and I found all my clothes neatly hung. I grabbed my brown and white polka dot dress, and slipped on some shoes. "You look like crap", Josh said when I walked back in the kitchen.
"Well goodmorning beautiful to you too!", I laughed, digging my fork into the mound of eggs Ashley had laid on my plate. Ashley was beggining to be like my mom away from home. Dang I missed my mom. "I don't have a bible", I said when the room fell quiet.
She handed me a red bible that was sitting in her lap. "Now you do", she said. "So.. I gotta tell you something..", Ashley said. "Yeah?" I asked. "Well I found out Trevor's secret last night. I wasn't told it but giving from what happened last night and a bunch of other stuff I already knew, I figured it out", she said smiling.
The bell rang, warning us that we have five minutes until church started. I grabbed my red Bible off my lampside table, and Ashley and Josh followed shortly behind me. I was headed down the stairs and Blake caught eye contact with me. Crap.
"Hey cutie", he said, latching his arm through mine. I smiled. I couldn't help it. As much as I wanted to be mad at him, I just couldn't stay that way.
The church appeared before me. It was a bricked structure with huge stained glass windows, and on top was a gigantic bell. Everyone awaited until the bell finally sound. Everyone quickly rushed in, like it was Black Friday. I grabbed onto Blake's hand and I caught eye contact and he started to blush.
We got our seats and Josh sat on my right and Blake to my left. To the right of Josh was Ashley. Josh elbowed me and said "Gum?". I smiled and took the green strip of stride from him.
The doors swung open, and like it was a reaction, everyone of course looked back. I glanced for a second, not really too curious, considering that I didn't know too many people at this school, but something made me look twice. It was Trevor, and he was with a girl..
