Beginning with An Ending…………
Fire works went off, I stood there my lips locked into Michael’s. Why in the hell did we wait this long for this to happen?
An unknown tune went off in my ear. First very low and then it got louder. I opened my eyes slowly, the sound stopped then back on again and this time i sat up suddenly. I turned in confusion towards the sound. It was coming from a pair of levi jeans on the floor next to the bed. I pulled the covers off and walked over to the jeans.
“where the fuck you at?” a familiar voice said
“ummm hello” I said
“who is this?” she asked
“Betty” I replied
“where is mike?”
“umm i am not sure….”
“well you are answering his phone so I am guessing you know where he is. And why do you sound so dead? Did Mike do something stupid again and now he is hiding?”
Confused as to who i was talking to and what the hell was going on I put the phone over my chest and stopped to clear my mind and try to remember what happened.
And slowly things seemed to make sense…I was at Nila’s house..the fight..the drive…the drinking…and the bedroom…someone on top of me….mike’s jeans…his phone…his GIRLFRIEND and my best friend on the PHONE!
i started to panic. Oh my god how did all this happen??
“HELLO BETTY!!!!” the familiar voice that was Kristina’s yelled.
“hey soory i just woke up give me a few I iwll call you back.”
“but what happened to Mi….”
I hung up before she can say anything else.
I found a tshirt and pulled it on. I walked out of the room and down the hall i heard the shower.
“Someone had a really good night.”
I turned to see my roommate Nessa sitting on her bed with a big smile on. When I didnt say anyting she continued.
“you woke me up with all the sounds”
Turning red I said sorry and waited for Mike to get out. I leaned against the bathroom door and at that moment the door pulled open and i fell into Mike’s arms. We looked at each other and didnt say a word. Nessa got up to close her door and yelled “be good”
I stood straight and moved aside. He walked by me and into the bedroom. I went in to the bathroom and showered. When I went back to my room Mike had the bed done. He made breakfast and waited for me. We sat in silence and ate. He looked through his phone and asked if I picked up Kristina’s call. I said yea. I told him that I didnt know who it was so i picked up and she was asking for him. He got up and called her back . He walked back and forth while trying to convince her that he needed a place to crash so he came over to my place and he will tell her more later.
When he hung up he back to me and again we sat in silence.
“What happened last night” I finally asked
“I dont know”
“what you mean you dont know”
“I dont know. I know we were both drunk and i guess one thing led to another and we did something that we shouldnt have”
Even though i had a feeling that he was going to say that for some reason it hurt me like hell.
“So now what”
“I dont know”
“Do we just leave it in the past?”
“We will have to. It will break Kris if she finds out.”
A sudden pang of jealousy came over me. “yea you are right.”
After that Mike left and we didnt see eachother for a week. Neither one of us bothered to call or text either. We try to avoid each other as much as possible. At a friends birthday party about a week and half later I saw Mike again. We just looked at each other and then ignored each other the rest of the night. That same night Mike and Kristina got into a huge fight. While Mike left the party Kristina stayed back. She complained about Mike having changed and acting very different towards her. She was sick of his nonsense and his attitude. I felt guilty sitting here and trying to assure her it was just a phase when in reality i was the cause of all her problems.
I sat on the bench at the park when I felt a body sitting next to me. When i looked up it was Mike.
“hi” he replied
“how are you”
I looked at the little puppies and waited for Mike to say something else.
“i broke up with Kristina”
“It was just getting too complicated. I dont know but i just dont feel how i used to for her.”
“How did she take it?”
“i dont know. I left.”
“Are you ever going to tell her what happened between us?”
“No. I mean how can i? She is my bestfriend. i cant hurt her like that.”
“So what about us”
“i dont know”
“Betty you know how i feel about you. You always knew that.”
“Yea but I also know Kristina loves you”
“what about you?”
I didnt say anything for a long while. Mike sat there looking at the ground. I knew what my heart felt for Mike.
I had always liked him and after hanging out with him for so long we just assumed we were friends and never tried dating. But when Kristina came into the picture I realized that i really liked Mike. But seeing them so happy I couldnt ever break them apart. But now I had done just that and I hated myself for it.
“Mike you know…..”
before I could say anything else Mike grabbed my face and kissed me. Everything felt so right. I didnt care about anything at that moment. Being friends for almost 4 years i didnt know when had i grown so much feelings for Mike. And so we started to date of course without Kristina knowing. But that wasn’t going to last too long and when she found out she was broken and i felt guilty as hell but over time she realized that Mike and I were just meant to be.
