(A) I walk into the girls bathroom with my phone in my hand. I can’t believe I just stood up for myself like that. Hayden was my best friend... but I say was, because he’s not anymore. I just don’t understand...
(H) god, I feel terrible. I didn’t mean to hurt her like I did, and now she hates me, because of a little misunderstanding. To be perfectly honest, I dont know why I raised my voice, or was so rude to her. I don’t know why I don’t like her posts on Instagram, when she always likes and comments on mine. I’m a big jerk, and now everybody knows it. I’m going to go find Jayden.
H: *looking around the school* Jay? Where’d you go?
H: I’m sorry if I did anything to offend you.
H: I don’t know why I acted like that.
(Jay) I can hear Hayden calling my name...right now I’m comforting Annie in the girl’s bathroom, unable to speak in the uncomfortable silence.
H: *in the halls* Jayden?
H: * in the halls* I’m sorry if I hurt you by raising my voice. I just didn’t want to talk to Annie, because I had a crush on her when we were little and she hurt me by leaving.
Jay: *looks at Annie*
H: *in the halls* Jayden? *hears crying in the bathroom*
H: Jay? *walks in*
H: Jay are you crying? *pushes stall door open*
(A) his expression was an endless stream of mixed emotions. I could tell he was hurt, mad, and embarrassed, to name a few.
Jay: you like her?
H: n-not anymore.
Jay: but you did? You had feelings for her?
H: *looks at Annie* yeah.
Jay: wow. Am I stupid, or what?
H: Jay, I don’t anymore. Trust me.
Jay: *walks out of stall* yeah you do! You never stopped talking about her! Listen, Annie’s like- my best friend, but you’re just a jerk! You can’t yell at someone, confess your feelings for them, and pretend you never said anything! Life doesn’t work that way!
H: wait- you’re not mad about me liking her?
Jay: no! I know when you like someone. You make it VERY obvious. I’m not hurt, I’m mad! You hurt Annie! You sent her all these mixed signals, and now, you’re trying to cover it up by shutting her out of your life!
H: s-so were over?
Jay: it’s up to you... more in comments ⤵️
