One single tear escaped from her mysterious eyes when he gently stroked her cheek. Derek tried to make her sadness disappear with a soft touch of his lips but she pushed him away.
"What the hell is wrong with you Sarah? Just tell me!"
She was nervous, too afraid to look at him questioning what was going on. Another tear escaped and many more followed. Derek held her in his strong, protecting arms and she never felt this guilty. He was a wonderful person and yet, she betrayed him. Together, they survived every obstacle, gave all haters the undeniable proof that milk does mix with brown sugar. Together... But she had to accept the fact that they won't be for much longer. It was time...
"Derek, this will probably be the hardest thing I'll ever have to do but you need to hear this. While we were apart, I did something I truly regret. I was vulnerable and although I know it doesn't justify what I did, I need you to know how I felt at that time. I trusted Malakai, he listened to my problems and gave me a shoulder to cry on. I really thought he meant well but I took it too far...I slept with him..."
She looked into Derek's eyes and knew it was over. He didn't say a word when he turned around and walked out the door. Sarah was certain he would never come back to her ever again.
She picked up the phone and dialed a number.
"Whassup, this Chenille...Who's calling?.....Hello?....."
"Sarah? Is that you? Are you ok ? What's wrong girl?"
"Can you come to my place? Hurry!"
Knock knock...Sarah opened the door and saw her friend standing there totally confused.
"Sarah, have you been crying? What's going on?"
"What is? You mean...you and Derek? No girl, can't be over... You two are like the perfect couple!"
"I betrayed his trust Chenille, I hurt him."
"Huh, what did you do? I am not following over here...Explain!"
"I slept with Malakai."
"You did what?! Are you out of your mind? Why did you do it? Where's Derek?"
"I don't know where he is, he left without saying a word. And I don't know why I did it, all I know is that it didn't feel right at all, I wish it never happened."
"I gotta find my brother..."
Chenille stormed out just like Derek did, and at this moment, Sarah lost both her best friends...But she didn't deserve any compassion, it was her own fault. Cried herself to sleep...all alone in this cold and cruel world.
