I woke up the next day with mixed feelings. I swear Andy was about to kiss me last night and I might have actually been lookin forward to it. Except I needed to get these feelings out of me because I am and always will be madly in love with Justin and now that I actually might have a chance with Justin, I don't need someone like Andy to mess things up.
I go down stairs to get a bowl of cereal to see Brittany in her nightgown. Ew, she spent the night. I quickly slip into the hallway to ease drop on her conversation on the phone. "I mean, I told my mom I didn't need to go to college." I quickly assumed she was talking to a friend or something. "He's loaded, has a huge house right on the beach, and he's totally in love with me." I heard her crackle from the other room talking about my father. I knew it. "After he proposes, which he definitely will, I'll be set for life." she added. I honestly was in shock, like I figured this was going on the whole time but hearing it from her was completely different. Footsteps started to bang down the stairs. "Got to go, talk to you later, kisses." Brittany said in the other room. She had the vocabulary of a thirteen year old girl.
"Morning, sweeite." my dad said to her, kissing her on the cheek. It was making me sick. "What are you up to today?" he asked her. "Going shopping with the girls." she said as I walked into the kitchen. "Good morning, Val." my dad said to me. "Morning." I answered back. "Val, good morning!" Brittany chimed. I ignored her and went for a box of cereal. "Well, I'm going to get ready for the day." Brittany said as she kissed my father on the cheek and waltzed upstairs.
My father and I sat there quietly for a while. He was drinking his coffee and flipping through the paper while I was inhaling some cereal. "Dad, I have to tell you something." I said nervouslly. He folded the paper up and looked at me. "Brittany, was on the phone this morning and I overheard her and she basiclly said that she's using you for your money." I managed to tell him. I mean, he should know the truth. He just stared at me for a while. "Valire, how many times are you going to lie about these things? I know it's hard but you have to accept that I love Brittany." I stood up quickly in digust. "But, I heard it. They were her words not mine!" I stampered. "Val, honestly, you need to stop doing this. Stop making up lies, it's not going to change the way I feel about her." he said. I was on the verge of tears. "Dad, I can't believe you're starting to trust me over her? I'm your daugher!" I shouted. "And she's my girlfriend." he said back, "And you're going to have to respect her and respect our relationship." It was almost pointless to keep going, "Ahhh!" I screamed in fustration while stomping up to my room.
As soon as I got up there and slammed my door I got a text from Justin. It read, 'Sorry, can't hang out today, have to cancel. But we need to hang out tomorrow! :)' Great, I'm possibly in the worse mood ever and I thought he would be able to change it but I guess not. I then sent a text to Jasmine, 'Want to hang out today?' She quickly texted back, 'Sorry, I'm busy. Another day though.' Really? I couldn't just stay home alone today. I was a mess and needed someone to make me feel better. I scrolled through my contacts and stopped at Andy's name. No, no, no, I kept telling myself. But deep down I wanted to text him. It's not that I liked liked him, right? He was just a friend that listend to me one time. I finally decided to text him if he was free today. He responded seconds later with, 'Yeah, wanna hang out?'
