Title: Cheated On Me
Disclaimer: I don't own Becky, Cody, Ted, or Kelly Kelly, Nor do I particularly want to own the last one.
Note: I've been on a rather sad romance kick lately.
Written for SimplyPriceless.Becky's POV
Don't make me sleep alone, Cody.
Don't make me be lonely, Cody.
Don't leave me, Cody.
I bit my lip hard enough to draw blood. It was midnight, and Cody still wasn't home. I knew where he was, though. He said he was at the gym, toning up. He said he might hit a bar with the guys, to have some fun. But I knew where he really was. He was with Kelly.
What makes her better than me, Cody?
Is she prettier than me, Cody?
Is she nicer than me, Cody?
Is she better in bed than me, Cody?
Don't leave me, Cody.
Warm tears ran down my cheeks, mixing with the blood from my lip. My lip stung as the salty tears hit the cut, but I didn't care. A little pain never hurt anyone. Well, maybe it did. But it doesn't hurt me. It distracts me from the pain inside.
How many others are there, Cody?
Are they all prettier than me, Cody?
Are they all better than me, Cody?
I got up and walked to the picture window. I'd always loved Cody's house. I felt safe there, I felt like I belonged there. Tonight I feel like an outcast. Tonight I feel like a stranger. Tonight I feel…dead. I feel dead inside.
Why do you make me cry, Cody?
There's a knock on the door. I jump. Cody has a key, why would he have to knock? Unless I locked the door. But there's always the spare key. Maybe he's too drunk to find it. Maybe he just wants to see me. Yeah, right. Like he cares about me anymore.
Is that you, Cody?
Do you smell like her again, Cody?
I open the door a crack. It's Ted. That's a surprise. Sure, me and Ted are friends, but mainly he's friends with Cody. I wonder why he's here. I bet it has to do with Cody. Why else would he be here so late?
"Can I come in?" he asks, twisting his coat a little in his hands. He seems nervous. I wonder why. Did something happen?
"Yeah, sure," I say, opening the door the entire way to let him in. "You wanna sit down?" I lead him into the living room. We sit down.
He's your best friend, Cody.
Does he know, Cody?
Who knows, Cody?
Does everyone know, Cody?
"We're friends, right, Becky?" Ted asks. He takes off his coat. He fiddles with it in his hands. Why is he so nervous?
"Sure, Ted," I reply. "We're friends. Why do you ask?"
What does he know, Cody?
Does he know about you and Kelly, Cody?
"Because I have something to tell you. And I feel like I have to tell you, because you're my friend. I tell my friends things. Important things. And I think that this is important."
"You're making me a little nervous, Ted," I say with a fake laugh. "Why don't you just tell me? It can't be as bad as you're making it out to be."
"What if it is as bad as I'm making it? What then, Becky?"
"Well, why don't you tell me. Then we can figure out if it's really all that bad."
"Have you…have you been crying, Becky?" Ted asks, peering at my face. "Are you…are you bleeding?"
"Um, no?" I say. It comes out as more of a question than a statement. I don't think he believes me.
"You have been, haven't you? Is that your lip that's bleeding? What happened?"
"Oh, I just, you know, bit it a little too hard. It's OK now, though. Don't worry about me."
"I do worry about you. That's why I'm here."
"Just tell me please, Ted. It really can't be all that bad."
"Maybe it is. Have you ever considered the possibility that Cody is cheating on you?" That came as a slap in the face.
Have you been out with her, Cody?
Has she met your friends, Cody?
Do they not know that we're still somewhat together, Cody?
"Well, I…I mean…"
Ted just sat there. He looks so calm, with just a hint of worry and anxiety. I took a deep, shuddery breath.
"Yeah, Ted. I know he's cheating on me. I know our relationship has fallen apart." I sat there with tears in my eyes.
"And I know it'll never be the same, since he's cheated on me."
