Tai followed a completely distraught Amber into her dorm and closed the door behind him. She didn't bother to go back to her room, instead she chose to sit at the counter and bury her hands into her face sobbing.
"Why did you follow me here?" she cried into her hands. In was muffled but Tai could understand her, "Haven't you done enough?"
"…I don't think you should be alone right now," he said softly, still standing by the door. He wasn't sure what to do or where to go but he couldn't leave Amber by herself. It didn't even look like her roommate was home.
"Please," she begged, "Can't you just go away?"
He could hear the hurt in Amber's voice. She really did love Jeremy. She thought Jeremy loved her too, at least in the same way. Now she was finding out, he'd never been attracted to her at all. He never felt the same way about her and he was never going to.
"I don't think I should."
Taking a deep breath, Amber lifted her head and wiped her eyes with back of her hand. Her makeup had run down her cheeks and smudged, and her eyes were blood red, "I'm not going to hurt myself or anything I swear. I just…I just want…"
"What? What do you want? Do you need something?" he asked immediately walking over. If she wanted something he felt almost obligated to do it for her. In a way, he felt almost guilty. Sure he hadn't really done anything, but he had none for a while that Jeremy had an interest in her. Even worse, he felt terrible knowing her boyfriend had been interested in him.
"I don't know. I don't know anything anymore," she heaved desperately. It sounded like she could barely breathe in between sobs. Tai had no idea what to do to comfort her, and maybe it was his guilt but he felt like he should at least try to comfort her.
He took a deep breath and let her cry for several more minutes until it seemed like she had calmed down at least a little, enough to talk without heaving every other word. "Have you talked to him?" Tai finally asked.
Amber lightly shook her head, "No. I don't even know what I'm supposed to say. I feel like if I saw him right now, I'd probably try to kill him."
"Yes! He embarrassed me, he lied to me, and he…he…" She couldn't finish as she gagged again like she had at Tai's dorm before she had thrown up. This time she stood up running to the bathroom where she collapsed over her toilet crying and vomiting.
Tai searched through several cabinets until he came across a cup and filled it with water before bringing it to Amber in the bathroom. "Here, at least take a few sips. It'll help."
She looked up at him like she wanted to protest, but after retching for a third time she took the cup from his hand and at least put her lips to the cup. Tai stood by the counter looking down at her. She looked beyond miserable and figured she probably was.
"I can't even think about it without throwing up. I have no idea how many or who, but I'm sure he was. He was out there sleeping with guys and then coming back and sleeping with me too. I know he was! T-that's so disgusting. This is probably the worst day of my life Tai, the worst."
Tai just nodded. What was he supposed to say? No it's not? It's only uphill from here? Nothing he could think of seemed quite right.
"I feel so humiliated. My boyfriend is out there cheating on me with guys for who knows how long and I'm curled up in a bathroom throwing up and crying in front of a guy I'm sure my boyfriend hit on."
Knowing that this could potentially take a while, Tai took a seat on the edge of the tub. He had to do something, or at least say something. He'd followed her all the way here. "We have to figure out what you're going to do," he finally stated.
"What I'm going to do?"
"Yeah, like if you're going to have him come over or what you're going to say when you see him. You have to have a plan."
Amber sighed and leaned her back on the edge of the toilet. She knew Tai was right, it wouldn't be smart to just go into this blindly…but she had no idea how she wanted to go into it. "I don't know what I want to do or say Tai. I can't even think straight."
He laid his head in his hand, "Well take a deep breath and try."
She took a series of long deep breaths and tried to calm down enough to think rationally. She seemed fine at first but it just wasn't working. "I don't know Tai…Will you at least be there, when I do confront him?"
"Huh?" He straightened up and raised his eyebrows. Did he just hear that right? "Amber, I don't think that's a good idea."
He knew she was going to be upset and he felt bad, but he had no intention of being anywhere near her or Jeremy when things went down. He'd already been involved in their lives enough and look at what that had gotten him. Jeremy had gotten his friends to jump Tai outside of his own dorm.
"I just thought I would ask," she pouted, "If you won't be there will you at least stay with me tonight and maybe help me figure something out? You can sleep on the couch…I just don't want to be alone."
Though he was skeptical of this too, he felt sorry for her and that made him cave in. Silently he wished he wasn't so involved in this, "Y-yeah, I guess I can do that."
Sora knocked on Bridgette's door loud and hard. If she was here, there was no way she could ignore this knocking. She waited a few seconds and was about to knock again when she saw exactly who she was looking for open the door.
"We need to talk," she stated.
Bridgette moved aside, letting Sora in with a smirk, "Oh we do, about what?"
"Well, we can start with what you said to Mimi about me and Izzy. Where the hell do you get off? Mind your own business!" Sora yelled. She hadn't intended to be so mad from the start, she honestly wanted to be civil but she doubted that was about to happen. "She knows Izzy and I didn't do anything. Why are you trying to plant ridiculous ideas in her head?"
Bridgette laughed, "Ridiculous ideas?"
"Yeah like that, or the idea that Izzy's cheating on her."
"I wouldn't say they're ridiculous, they're plausible."
Sora stared at her in disbelief. She was smiling and laughing like what she was doing was funny. What the hell was wrong with her? "What are you trying to accomplish Bridgette? If Mimi's supposed to be your friend, why are saying shit like this to her? You know that all she's doing is freaking out about it. You're only hurting her!"
"Oh Sora, because you're such a saint? Fuck off. You had a fling with her ex-boyfriend. Even I never did that," she grinned crossing her arms in front of her chest, "Be honest, you're just here because you don't like me."
"No, I don't like you…but for some odd reason Mimi does and I'm her as her friend. You don't give a shit about her. If I didn't know any better, I'd say you were doing this all on purpose."
"Yeah? And so what if I was? Who would believe you, not Mimi."
Sora couldn't take it. She generally wasn't violent but even she could feel herself getting to that point as she approached the other girl. Everything in her just wanted to punch Bridgette in her smug face. She had practically just admitted doing this on purpose, which Sora had figured, but for what she wasn't a hundred percent yet.
"What are you gonna do Sora?" Bridgette laughed, "You gonna hit me? What's that gonna solve hmm? Then Mimi will just be mad at you for hitting me."
Sora drew her fist back and hit Bridgette anyway, "Let her be mad." One day, Mimi will thank me for this.
Bridgette hands immediately flew up to her bleeding nose trying to make sure it wasn't broken. Sora took this opportunity to leave. She hadn't accomplished much in the way of getting Bridgette to leave Mimi alone verbally, but hopefully her physical persuasion would be enough. If not, at least it felt good to punch her in the face.
"You punched her?" Izzy laughed hysterically from his computer chair, "No way?"
Sora's face turned a bright shade of red, "Yeah. She was just making me so mad! And she wouldn't stop smiling and laughing like she was rubbing it in! I wasn't getting anywhere talking, so I-"
"So you punched her? That's classic. I feel like that was worth it," he smiled, "She's a bitch and she deserved it. She's doing this on purpose."
"Yeah she is, she practically admitted it. I don't know why she is though? I wouldn't do this to anyone I'm friends with. I wish I knew why, then maybe I could prove it to Mimi because I know she's going to be pissed when she finds out I punched Bridgette in the face."
Izzy nodded, "Yeah, she probably is."
"Ugh," Sora huffed standing up from her friend's bed, "I don't know what I'm going to do."
"Well whatever you decide, I'll definitely help if I can. I hate Bridgette just as much as you do."
Sora let out a small laugh and smiled, "Thanks."
"You heading out?" he asked turning back towards his computer. He'd been working on programs for Joe before she'd come in.
Sora stood there unsure and frowning, "I was actually hoping Tai would be here by now. Do you know where he is?"
"Beats me," Izzy shrugged, "I assumed you knew since he's your boyfriend."
"I have no idea."
"Call him," the computer whiz suggested. She nodded and did just that. Oddly enough, she could hear ringing in the dorm. She walked out of Izzy's room and into Tai's seeing his phone on his dresser. After picking it up, she picked it up and walked back to Izzy's room.
"He left his phone here."
"That's weird," Izzy stated. "I'm sure he's probably out with Matt or Joe or something. Just hang around here until he comes back."
Frowning, Sora nodded. She might as well. She had no idea where he could be but when he came back, she'd find out.
Mimi lay stretched out on her bed reading magazines before falling asleep when her phone vibrated. She opened it to see a picture message from Bridgette. It was a picture of her face which was bruised and turning some sickly shades of black and blue. Wondering what had happened, Mimi immediately called her.
"What happened to your face?"
"Your Neanderthal friend punched me in it, that's what happened!"
"Who?" she asked, completely unsure of who Bridgette was referring to.
That shocked her. Sure Sora was a bit more athletic than most of the girls she'd ever hung out with, but she wasn't a Neanderthal. She also wasn't one to go around assaulting people either. "Sora? Why would she do that?"
"I don't know," Bridgette scoffed on the other line, "I think she was mad because I was warning you about her and Izzy. I guess he must've met up with her and told her after you confronted him about it. She didn't want to be found out and she was mad that I was just looking out for you, so she came over here and punched me."
"Wow, Bridgette. I'm really sorry. Is it broken?"
"No, I don't think so. It's just really bruised. I won't even be able to cover it with make up or anything," she whined.
"Aw, well I'm sure it'll be gone by the time we start break."
"Yeah, I hope so. But it's no big deal. I just thought you should know because I thought it was weird. I don't even see why'd she'd get so mad if her and Izzy never did anything together you know? They're clearly closer than anybody thinks Mimi."
"Izzy said they didn't do anything."
"I'm sure he did, but I'm just saying Mimi as you friend, I'd be a little suspicious about the two of them. Izzy said he wasn't cheating on you with Roxanne either but we're still not a hundred percent about that. He's probably just a really good liar. Just be careful, okay? Just in case."
"Okay," Mimi said before saying goodbye and hanging up the phone.
She couldn't believe it. Sora had punched Bridgette in her face? Why would she do that? It couldn't really be because Bridgette had suggested she'd done something with Izzy. If she knew she hadn't done anything why punch her. It wasn't true, so why retaliate? Mimi hoped that Bridgette wasn't right, but it was starting to seem that way. Maybe Sora had hit her, because she's been right. Maybe she had done something with Izzy?
well i hope u enjoyed the chp! plz leave a comment :)
