Chapter two (Jade)
I woke up this morning on the usual park bench that I sleep on most nights to find Vega next to me.
"WAKE UP, WE HAVE SCHOOL" I shouted at her and with that she awoke.
"Where am I?" She then asked me confused.
"Dalton Park, where do you think you are?" I asked tired, grumpy and still unaware as to why she was even here in the first place.
I walked over to a big bush where I keep my bag full of everything I need when Tori asked " What are you doing here and what's in that bag?"
I sighed and instead of lying to her I decided to tell her the truth.
"Things aren't great at home, so I sleep here sometimes, the bag holds all of my clothes and food " I told her in a tired voice.
"What are YOU doing here" I asked back to her, I was acting too much like my actual self then the 'Jade' that everybody else sees.
"Things aren't great a home either" She responded.
"Why don't you just stay with Beck? I mean he is your boyfriend" Tori asked probably trying to change the topic and focus it onto me.
I'm getting really bored of these questions...
"BECAUSE I'M NOT" I yelled back to her and I told her that she should borrow a pair of my clothes so we can just get to school before the bell rings.
You want to know why I'm not staying with my seemingly perfect boyfriend. It's because I think he is cheating on me, I know he likes somebody else more than he likes me. I don't know who it is but when I find out I'm going to kill them because that's what everyone thinks that's what I, Jade West – the rebel with the eyebrow piercing and the multiple tattoos would do.
Truth is that I only wear all black, have several piercings and got the tattoos in the first place was all just so I could maybe, possibly get a little attention from my alcoholic mother and my careless, inconsiderate, insensitive jackass of a father so I don't have to hear them yelling and screaming just like it's world war three whenever he comes over to pick up my younger, irritating brother for soccer practice.
As we walked to the front of the school I told Tori to wait back a few seconds after I walk inside
"Why?" She asked back.
I groaned a bit and responded " Because I don't want anyone to think that we are actually friends"
As I walked into Hollywood Art's high school, I saw my long-term boyfriend Beck standing by his locker looking down, smiling, I was almost certain that he was texting that stupid bitch I think he's sleeping with.
I was about to go and ask him what he was doing when Tori walked through the door and my, okay I hate to admit this but my best friend Cat came up to me.
"Hey, Hey, what a wonderful day!" she sung at me in a cheerful way
"Days like this make me sick" I replied back to her in an annoyed tone, still looking at Beck wondering who he was texting.
Tori, along with Andre and Robbie came along to join the discussion that isn't really a discussion just Cat talking and me talking back in the way that everyone expects me too.
"Hey guys, guess what?" Andre asked the group.
"What?" Cat asked chirpily, looking at Andre.
"I don't need to get a job anymore" Andre responded happily.
"So last night was all for nothing" Tori replied with a sad look on her face.
"Oh waa, waa, little Tori Vega wasted one night of her precious, perfect life, somebody call the police"
"Shut up!" Tori said and walked away.
"What's going on?" Beck asked as he walked over to join us
"Jade said something to Tori and now she's gone" Robbie answered.
I could have almost sworn that Robbie gave Beck a look that meant he was happy to see him, Ignoring the look, I set my eyes on my Boyfriend Beck who was just about to speak.
"Jade…. Go talk to her" Beck told me and gave me a kiss on the cheek.
"Ugh fine" I replied back to him and with that I went off to go find Tori.
You're probably wondering why I'm not calling Tori 'Vega' well this is my mind so I can call her whatever I want, you got a problem with that?, well GOOD!
"Hey Vega, open up I want to talk to you " I told her as I was knocking on the door of the Janitor's closet which I could tell she was in.
"No, No – I don't want to" she quavered.
I could tell she was upset and I would be lying if I told you that I didn't care because truth be told, I did, I actually like Tori – as a friend, I mean she might have the most annoyingst voice in the world, and yes she may seem like she has the perfect life but deep down although I would never admit it to ANYONE, but I think she is a nice, caring person who anybody would be lucky to have as a friend and I'm generally concerned as to why she is acting so strangely.
I kicked the door open, since she wouldn't open it for me.
"I told you that I didn't want to talk to you" Tori told me as she sat in the corner with her knees bent and her hands in her lap.
"Look, I'm sorry about what I said before" I replied back to her, "Now will you please get up, we've gotta get to class and I can't be late again" I replied to her in a hurry as I really did need to get to class.
"Just go without me" Tori said as her eyes started to water.
"I'm not going to leave you like this" I replied back to her in a worried manner as I went over to sit right next to her putting my hand on her shoulder and rubbing it.
"You know how last night, I went to the park?" Tori asked me looking at me with tear filled eyes.
"Yeah" I asked back nervously.
"I ran away from home because I found out some news….. I was adopted" Tori said, speaking tremulously
"Oh Tori.. " I said to her still shocked about what had just come out of her mouth.
"Yeah well now you do" Tori said, looking down,
A few moments later she spoke again only to ask the question I was dreading to be brought up again "Wait why were you at the park anyways and why didn't you just stay with Beck, did you guys get into a fight or something?"
I sighed as I decided it was time to finally come clean , it was enough of telling the same old lie every day.
I sighed as I began to speak "Things aren't great at home, my mom… she is.. well she is an alcoholic who fights with my Dad every chance she gets, I have to take my little brother to my grandparents literally every single night because of it but they hate me, so I sleep on the park bench and the reason as to why I'm not staying with Beck is because he doesn't love me like he says he does, he loves some other chick who he is cheating on me with."
"Oh my god, Jade I had no idea about your home life, I'm so sorry" Tori replied, I could tell that she was surprised after what I had just told her.
"Yeah" I said back.
"Wait but how do you know Beck is cheating on you, or loves somebody else? , I mean no offence but you can kinda get jealous over nothing" she asked me.
"He got a text on his phone from an anonymous number when I was at his place and he was in the shower that said that they can't wait to see him" I replied back to her.
"Wait how do you know it wasn't his Aunty or cousin or something? " Tori asked as she stood up from the dirty, tiled floor.
"I guess I don't" I responded softly.
"Why don't you ask Andre? I mean they are like best friends and they supposedly tell each other everything so maybe he might know something" Tori replied
"Thanks", I replied
"We've got maths next and I'm in his class so maybe I'll ask him about it then" I responded before saying something that everyone would expect me to say.
"Oh and just because we had this little D&M does not mean that we are friends or anything of the sort" as I opened the janitors closet and walked out of the door.
As I walked into maths class, I found Andre already sitting in his seat so I walked over and sat right next to him.
"Hey" I said to him as the teacher Ms Vela told everyone to take their seats and be quiet or we will all get detention blah blah blah blah blah God she can be such a bitch.
Once class was over I quickly picked up my things and asked Andre if I could talk to him privately.
"Umm….. okay" He responded wondering why I wanted to talk to him.
"Follow me" I told him as I started walking to the janitor's closet because that is the only private place in this joint.
When we got there I turned to face him.
"What's so important that you had to take me to the janitors closet to ask me?" He asked.
"Look, you're Beck's best friend so if anyone would know, it would be you….." I started tp say.
"know what?" he asked as he held the straps ogf his backpack
"Is Beck cheating on me or not!" I almost screamed at him
"Umm not that I know of.. look Jade you can get…." Andre said just as I cut him off saying "whatever" and walked out of the closet.
I wanted to get to the bottom of this, I HAD to get to the bottom of this, sure Andre didn't know but what does that mean? That he isn't cheating on me? Yeah rightl, it just means that he didn't want Andre to know who he's chick on the side was, I swear that when I find out who the hel she is, I'll murder that little slut.
I was supposed to go to Beck's place at 10 but I decided to go a little biy early just to see if the whore was there.
My mother was still at the pub do I dropped my little brother off and drove to Beck's place.
I decided on not parking in Beck's driveway because I knew he would hear me so I parked about a street away.
I got out if my car and started walking to his place, once I reached there I walked to the front of his RV and slowly made my way to the sides, I could tell he was in there ecause the lights were on.
I walked along the sides of his grey RV until I reached the window, the curtains were shut but I could still see through a little gap, I made my way to there, making sure no one could see me until I reached to where the gap was.
My eyes and mouth opened widely, I honestly couldn't believe what was happening, sure I knew he was cheating on me but not with ROBBIE FREAKING SHAPIRO.
I ran towards my car, opened it up and started bursting into tears, my boyfriend; the boy every girl wants is sleeping with the nerd with an afro.
I started to drive fast, just so I could feel something, something other to what I was feeling.
Once I reached my place, I got out of the car, opened the front door, dropped my keys on the bench, walked straight upstairs towards my bedroom, ignoring my drunk mother who was lying on the couch and just sat in my bed bawling my eyes.
I honestly couldn't believe it, I decided that I would pretend that I had no idea, I would continue being with him because I didn't want anyone to find out that the baddest chick in school's boyfriend was gay, NO ONE.
Authors note: So what did you think? I really did work hard on this and was really happy with the way it turned out. The next chapter will be about Robbie, so you'll get to find more out about him and Beck's relationship and such, I'll try to get it out soon before school starts up again next week so here's hoping. :]
anyway take care lovelies - Kathryn :] xoxo
