Chapter 9 – How Much Longer Will It Take To Cure This
A/N: Yes, I know. Evil bitch I am. I've been boarding for the last couple of weeks, and the computers at school block Fan fiction – blasphemy! So I've had to write this by hand and spend ages deciphering my crappy handwriting. But good things have been happening at school, I didn't get Peer Listener, BUT I got Prefect and Maths Captain! :)
-Also, can anyone help me write an application for Head Girl?
Jas came into the room, bearing a girl's best friend. No, not diamonds. Ben and Jerry's ice cream and box sets of crappy series' such as; Gossip Girl and 90210. She sat down beside her best friend. 'Are you alright Gee?' she inquired, shocked at the news her friend had told her on the phone. Why would her boyfriend just dump her like that? Without explanation, and by text of all methods!
'I'll pull through. It's not like I was in love with him or anything.' she said, words choking up at the word 'love'. Jas pulled her into a hug, and patted her back as Georgia let out all her tears, mascara finding it's way onto Jas' new Ralph Lauren Polo. Shakily, she withdrew, and focused on her patch of mascara and tears. 'Oh my god! I'm so sorry, that was new, from your Aunt.' Georgia apologised, shaking her head manically.
'It's alright Gee. Now, it's mufti day today and you know what you're going to do? Knock em' dead. Make him know what it is that he's missing not being with you.' Jas suggested, moving over to the stripy bag she brought full of goodies and make-up. 'We're giving you a makeover, albeit short.'
'Jas, that won't be necessary. I don't care about him anymore. To be honest when he dumped me, I didn't really feel pain, just hollow. The pain came later, thinking that he dumped me because of that Australian bitch.'
'He probably did.' Jas finally said. Georgia swivelled her head to meet her eyes.
'Tom was saying something the other day, and he strongly implied that Robbie was in love with Pixie when they all were in London, and still was.' Jas said calmly. 'He couldn't help it. Love is a evil device when it wants to be.'
'He couldn't help getting with me, despite loving another?' Georgia asked, not entirely believing it.
Jas sighed. 'He thought she would never return. He wanted someone to make him happy, and for a short while you did. But a fling could never compare in his eyes to a love that had been well in the works.'
'When did you become oh-so knowledgeable?'
'My mother.' she said simply and Georgia nodded. Jas' mother was a renowned psychologist and had written several books detailing her discoveries, and common problems that the everyday woman had, but couldn't admit.
Dave waited outside the Jennings which was incredibly tense. He had come to surprise his girlfriend by walking with her to school. Girlfriend. It felt good saying that. He stood on the doorstep, about to press the bell, when he heard interesting snippets of conversation.
'You owe me an explanation.'
'You're meant to be my brother, which means you're meant to be on my side. You can't just tell people my secrets.'
'So I'm just people now am I? I don't hate the time for this, I'm off to school.'
'Wait up, me too.'
It was that moment that both Tom and Pixie burst out of the front door and collided with Dave, who was smiling. 'Hey.' he greeted.
Pixie's and Tom's eyes narrowed. From the looks of it, Dave had been standing outside for an awfully long time, earwigging. They both ignored him, and set off to school, when Robbie burst out of the house – not even giving him a second glance – running over to Pixie and Tom who were debating Dave's misdoings.
'I owe you an explanation - ' Robbie was cut off.
'To be honest, I don't care. You had your chance last night, and what did you do? You blew it. Friendships, relationships, what's the difference? Both bring love and pain.' Pixie said, stoic. Tom nodded in agreement of the last phrase. Because of Robbie's rashness, Jas had refused to see him, on grounds that she had to deal with a broken Georgia. Dave eventually caught up with the rest of the group, and was met with a icy reception. 'You,' Pixie started, glaring. 'You, I can't trust. If I can't trust someone, I can't possibly have hopes of a relationship with them. You know, it would've have been easier if you admitted outright you eavesdropped on our conversation. But you chose to dismiss it. Come on Thomas, let's rid ourselves of these misfits.'
Dave and Robbie were left in silence as they both watch Pixie and Tom walk to the bus stop whilst discussing the difficulty of the Literature essay on Romeo and Juliet that they had to compare to poem.
