This chapter sucks. It's just a filler. Sorry :(
And I just want to say... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING AMAZING REVIEWS LIKE HOLY CHIZ! I woke up two days after I had posted the chapter, I checked my email, and I had like, ELEVEN new reviews!
That made my life.
And I just want to say... This weekend is Easter, and I don't know if you celebrate or not.. but..
If you do.. Have a safe and happy Easter weekend!
And if you don't... Have a great, safe weekend!
I shouldn't have been surprised. At all. Beck was planning on breaking up with Jade...
But I wasn't expecting it to happen YET...
Was this a bad thing?
Jade and Beck aren't meant to be... Are they?
No, they can't be. If they were meant to be, then... then Jade wouldn't have cheated on Beck.
But all relationships have obstacles..
Cheating isn't an obstacle. It's an act that says "Hey, I found someone more attractive than you! But I still like you, so I'm gonna be with BOTH of you, and not tell you about it!"
Are you SURE it's not an obstacle?
I quit arguing with myself, and turned my attention towards the three people in front of me.
Andre looked shocked.
Beck looked angry.
Jade looked.. Desperate.
"Beck!" She said. "I'm sorry! I didn't mean to, I swear!"
"Didn't mean to? How did you not mean to cheat on me? " He said, somewhat calmly. I wasn't surprised by this. Beck was pretty good at controlling his temper.
"Beck, I'm sorry.." Jade said, close to tears. "I want to be with you!"
She took a step forward.
I looked at Andre. He looked angry now.
I wonder what he's thinking...
Beck took a step back.
"Beck, PLEASE! Please don't leave me!" Jade begged.
"Leave me alone, Jade." He said. He stormed off, and I followed him.
"Beck?" I said quietly.
"Beck?" I said, a little louder.
He stopped and turned around. I took a few steps toward him. I put my hand on his arm.
"Are you okay?" I asked, quietly.
"Yeah.. I'm fine." he said, smiling weakly. "C'mon, we should go."
He turned around and walked away, so I followed.
That's when I realized we were in a new room. I looked around and spotted a plaque by the door. I walked over to read it.
"THE MICHELLE DESROSIERS HALL." I read out loud. "In 1943, Michelle Desrosiers was admitted to Amberglows, and immediately placed on the research floor. Suffering from schizophrenia, Michelle went through countless tests, and helped our doctors learn more about proper treatments for a schizophrenic. After ten years, Michelle died a tragic death, from falling off the roof of the art centre. This room is dedicated to her, because it was her favourite." There was a quote at the bottom.
"It's my favourite. I get to be with other people."
"That is one messed up plaque!" Beck said. He was standing beside me.
How long had he been there?
"Oh, hey.." I said.
"Hello. Sorry for walking away on you earlier." He said.
"Don't worry about it."
"I came over here because I realized.. I only really wanna spend time with you right now..." He looked at the floor.
My heart was pounding. Before I could respond, we were interrupted.
"TORI!" Trina yelled, running towards me.
"Where's Andrew and Jadey?"
"They're out in the hallway... Wait a minute. Did you just call her 'Jadey'?"
"Yeah! That's her name.. Remember? Tori, you are SO slow..."
And then she walked off.
I looked over and saw Beck was watching Robbie and Cat. Who just so happened to be slow dancing. In the middle of Amberglows.
Robbie looked over at us, and we gave him the thumbs up. He smiled, and looked back at Cat.
"They sure are cute." I said, smiling.
I decided to look around the room a little more.
There was a stage at the front of the room, and there were about 20 or 30 rows of chairs, bolted to the floor. All of the chairs had seat belts, and straps to keep the patients hands down.
"Harsh." Beck said.
"Do you wanna move on with the group?" He asked.
I didn't have time to reply. Why? Because Jade and Andre walked in.
And Jade looked ANGRY.
Tears spilled onto her cheeks, and slid downward. She was clenching her jaw, and her hands were balled into fists.
"YOU!" She yelled, raising her hand and pointing at me.
Oh chiz. She's gonna beat me up!
She stormed towards Beck and I, and grabbed my arm.
"We," She said angrily. "Need to talk!"
She pulled me out into the hall, and closed the door.
We stood in silence, and I watched as Jade tried to hold back her tears.
"WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING?" She yelled finally.
I jumped at the sound of her voice.
"Who do you think you're fooling?" She continued, slightly quieter than before. "I can see you want Beck, but I had him first! Who do you think you are, just coming to Hollywood Arts and chasing after my boyfriend like that? He is not-"
I cut her off.
"Your boyfriend anymore. THAT is what he is not. And who said I even wanted Beck like that? He's just a FRIEND. Yes, Beck is extremely good looking and a great kisser, but.." I stopped talking, and looked at the floor, realizing what I had just said. When looked up at Jade, there was a mixture of emotions showing on her face.
Smugness, superiority, anger, jealousy, and... pain?
She moved closer to me.
"See? You want to be with him." She hissed. "Something inside you doesn't care who gets hurt, as long as YOU get him."
I was backed up against a wall now, and Jade was standing extremely close to me.
"N..n..no I don't!" I stuttered. I was terrified.
"Really?" She said, smiling. "You sure about that Tori?"
I was too scared to move. Jade wouldn't KILL me... But she sure as heck wouldn't pass up the chance to rough me up a little... Right?
I tried to think of something to say, to make the situation better.
Just then, the doors opened, and Jade took a step back.
"Beck." She said.
"Jade...?" He said.
She opened her mouth to say something, but he spoke first.
"We'll talk about this later."
She bit her lip and stormed out.
"Tori.." He said, moving over to me once she had left. "Are you okay?"
Then, out of nowhere, he hugged me.
"She wouldn't have hurt you." He said quietly.
"I know." I said, equally as quiet. I didn't like lying to Beck, but telling him the truth would have been embarassing.
He moved his hands to my shoulders, and took a step back to look at me.
"Really? Because you could have fooled me."
"Beck..." I said.
"I need some alone time..to... think things over, you know?"
"Of course." He said.
"You know, The nurses break room is still in really good shape. I found the keys.. so if you wanna go think in there.."
"Yes please." I said, taking the keys from him.
He smiled at me, and lead me to the nurses break room. I unlocked the door, and went inside.
"Tori?" He said, just before I shut it. "I'll come back for you in half an hour. The rest of the group decided they wants to go check out the kitchen..."
I smiled, nodded, and shut the door. The room was in relatively good shape. The couch looked kinda gross.. but the rest of the room was clean. I stood there, in silence, for a few minutes.
And then I started to cry.
Sorry Jade was so mean in this chapter. Things will get better soon, I swear! So... why do YOU think Tori was crying?
