I Was Wrong
c h a p t e r 19
The next day, we walk to school hand in hand. Some people stared and some people gave us confused looks, but I didn't care. All I care about is Ethan and I are a couple... I think.
"Are we, like, together?" I ask Ethan. He looked at me and smiled, "I'm going to take that as a yes," And he nodded.
We enter the high school and go our separate ways. I go to my locker to get all the stuff I need. Binder, check, notebook, check, pencil, check. Okay I am prepared for Science class.
I close my locker and as I tun to walk to class, Alyssa comes up to me. "What?" I say sounding annoyed.
"You weren't kidding. I saw you and Ethan together," She says sound really surprised.
"And you weren't lying. Ethan told me everything," I say.
"Alright," She says and then walks off. That's never happened before. Alyssa usually has something mean to say before leaving me. Whatever, I'm not going to look into it too much, it probably means nothing.
I enter class a second before Ethan. "Hey gorgeous," He says behind me.
I turn around and hear someone say, "Move!" We move and then head to our seats.
I take a deep breath, "Hi," I smiled.
"I love that smile," He says. How sweet!
"You know, just because we are a couple doesn't mean you always have to give me compliments, I have some flaws," I love what he says about me, but I don't want him to feel obligated to saying awesome stuff about me.
"I know," Aww, how sweet-er!
The rest of Science class was boring, but Ethan was there so I didn't care.
Math was next and Sam is in Math class with me.
When I see Sam, I just walk on by, but she stops me, "Jennie!" She shouts so I'll hear.
"What?" I gave her the same "what" I gave Alyssa.
"I'm-" She sighs deeply, "Alyssa isn't my friend anymore," Her hands are shaking, "And, um, Jason broke up with me."
I kind of expected this, but I feel absolutely no sympathy. "Why are you telling me this?" Why is she? We aren't friends.
"I was, um, wondering if, um, you wanted to be best friends again," Is she kidding me? No way! After she has put me through, it's now an even bigger no.
"Ha!" I laugh in her face. Okay, that was kind of rude, but I continue, "No way! You turned your back on me and became friends with Alyssa even though you knew she is a jerk to me! No, never again," I turn away before I could see her reaction.
I sit there and think about today. Alyssa wasn't her usual self to me, Ethan is an amazing boyfriend, and Sam and I are officially done.
I'm not going to say my life is perfect, but it has taken a turn for the better.
Forever I will remember this quote from English class, "Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience." By Victoria Holt. I will live by this quote, it'll keep me going through all the bad and good and everything happens for a reason.
