Second Chance //
I jumped in surprise. I turned around, seeing Brett in a jacket and holding a umbrella.
I quickly wiped my tears when Brett sat next to me, with his umbrella on top of us.
"Melissa, don't even try. I can tell you're crying. It's okay, let it out." Brett told me.
"What are you doing here?" I asked him.
"Everyone was worried about you. So we all decided to look for you. All 16 of us."
"Yup. Me, Lily, Rose, your parents, Katy, Bonnie, Stella, Layla, Emma, Lauren, Seth, Brandon, Nick, Ryan, and Timmy."
"My god, I didn't mean to worry everybody." I murmured, now feeling guilty.
"Don't worry, I already texted everyone saying that I found you."
"I'm sorry for having to waste your time." I said.
"Why do you keep on apologizing to me? Seriously, I don't mind having to do these things. And here, wear my jacket. You must be cold." Brett told me. Brett took off his jacket, putting it over my shoulders.
"Aren't you going to get cold?" I asked.
"I think you need my jacket more."
I gave him a small smile. "Thanks." I said as I put on his jacket. I couldn't help but notice how good his jacket smells.
"Rose told me about the whole Katy thing. "What are you going to do?" Brett asked.
"I don't know. I think I have to talk to Katy. We can't keep on being at war." I admitted.
"Okay, we better get to my car before we both get sick." Brett reminded. Brett and I got to his car and he drove me back home.
I gave him a goodbye before I entered my house, seeing my parents and Rose's attention on me.
"Melissa!" Rose screamed. She ran to me, giving me a hug.
"Melissa, where were you? We were worried sick! And why didn't you bring an umbrella or a jacket?!" my dad said.
"I was about to call 911!" Suzan added.
"Guys, don't worry. I'm okay. I'm going to be upstairs." I told them. I went upstairs and took a shower, and then changed to some dry clothes. After that, I knocked on Katy's door.
"Who is it?" Katy spat.
"What do you want!?"
"Katy, I want to talk to you. Can I come in?" I asked.
I heard Katy groan. "Fine. It better be good."
I opened the door, seeing that Katy almost finished unpacking.
"Why do you want to talk?" Katy snapped.
"Look, why do you hate me so much?" I asker her.
"You're really asking me WHY I hate you?!" Katy said, her fists clenching.
"Please Katy, I don't want to fight. Just tell me why. I don't want us to continue being enemies. Please." I begged.
Katy sighed. "Your life is perfect."
"YOU'RE PERFECT! YOU'RE GORGEOUS. YOU HAVE THE PERFECT LIFE! YOU HAVE IT EASY!" Katy shouted.
"What? My life is far from perfect! My mom died, my dad has an affair with another woman. How is that perfect?!" I argued.
"You have real friends! I was always jealous of Stella, Layla, the others, and you! Because you all have a real friendship!" Katy's eyes began to water.
"You think your life sucks? At least you HAD a mother in your life! I never seen my real birth parents until this week! I had to live with with foster parents that Taylor hooked me up with!" Katy continued, now having tears running down her cheeks.
"Oh my gosh... I didn't know. I'm so sorry." I said.
"There, you get to see me break down and cry! Congratulations! ARE YOU HAPPY?!" Katy yelled.
"Katy, no! That was never my life goal! Don't you understand? I have been trying to patch things with you! But you hated me!"
"Melissa, I never hated you. I was just jealous of you." Katy whispered.
There was a moment of silence. I then sat down next to Katy.
"Katy, there's no reason to be jealous of me. You're gorgeous. But Katy, like I said, I want to patch things up with you. I want us to be sisters. No more of this war. Please?" I said, putting my hand out.
Katy shook my hand. "Sure, sister." we both did a small laugh after that.
