I couldn't be more broken when I found out that I've been fooled all this while, thinking that I was being loved by him. I know that this will teach me a lesson not to trust easily in this life.
Don't be confused as to how angry I am right now because it's actually not my fault.
Now you guys would want to know me, wouldn't you?
Well my name is Nuella, I'm seventeen years old and I'm kind of someone you'll call popular.
I have everything. No I thought I had everything; a nice boyfriend now an ex-boyfriend actually, a best friend now an ex-best friend too, a lot of guys seeking my attention, nice, loving and wealthy parents, money and God.
I hope you've probably gotten the gist of everything without me telling you.
Yeah-yeah, we broke up because some dumb idiot was cheating on his girlfriend with her bestie.
Okay enough of the ranting and let me go straight to the point.
Since we are on summer break, my ex boyfriend– Linc, my ex best friend– Sandra, Linc's best friend– Joshua and my cousin– Jade, decided to go to the new water park in our town– Willow Creek.
We were all gisting in the water park when Sandra took an excuse to use the rest room, shortly after Linc got a call, and he didn't pick it instead he took an excuse to use the rest room.
I had nothing in mind but after they left, I felt like a third-wheel because Jade and Joshua were sort of attracted to each other and I had to give them their privacy.
I headed for the ladies rest room.
Bad idea once again.
I opened the door to the ladies rest room, not expecting to see what I saw.
Linc and Sandra making out!
At first I couldn't believe my eyes, I was confused then I cleaned my eyes severally and saw it was all real.
That was the next emotion I felt.
I was so angered in such a way that all I could remember was banging the door with so much force. What irked me the most was the fact that they didn't notice me standing there until I closed the door in anger and walked out.
"Nuella!" Linc called out but I didn't turn or stop for once, instead I ran. I ran towards my hand bag and keys not caring about what those that I bumped into said.
I saw the confused looks on Jade and Joshua's faces, I didn't care to explain, I just ran to my car, started it and off I went.
That was when it dawned on me that I had lost both my best and boyfriend.
Linc, someone I've dated for almost three years and Sandra my childhood friend; It's hard to believe that just in a day I lost both.
As I thought of this my anger subsided and all I could feel was hurt.
I was broken.
"Hey mum" I greeted my mum who was preparing something that smelt so delicious.
"Have you been crying?" She asked.
Mum knew me like she knew the back of her palm, she didn't have to look at me to know if I was crying or not.
"It's nothing" I answered her.
"Okay, if you wanna talk about it I'll be right here" mum replied.
Yep that's my mum, she doesn't pester, she just gives you all the time and space you need.
With that I went to my room to cry my eyes out, take a bath and sleep– maybe.
I got to my room and instead of behaving like a strong woman and go into the bathroom to wash off the stench of Linc from my body, I went to my bed to cry.
I couldn't believe that such a thing could happen to my once 'perfect' life.
I cried till God knows when, then I slept without even knowing it.
"Ella, open the door" someone called out disturbing my beauty sleep and I decided not to open the door because the person was disturbing my beauty sleep, period.
"Ella, open up I've been knocking since forever" I didn't feel like waking up to face the pains of this unfair world so I ignored the person again.
"Ella it's me Jade, if you don't want to see me just say so and I will leave, you are scaring me, are you there?" By now I was wide awake.
I got up and opened the door and she gave me a very tight bear hug and I started crying again.
Just what I needed– a tight bear hug.
I let Jade into my room and told her everything.
"You know what, they are very big jerks and we're not gonna let jerks like them spoil our summer holiday so stand up, wash the stench of the filthy beings off your body and get dressed 'cause we're going shopping today and hitting the beach tomorrow" she told me while pushing me into the bathroom; I gave a dry short and forced laugh and locked the bathroom door.
As I was washing my body, I resolved that I would neither think of Linc nor Sandra through out this summer holiday after all it just started five days ago.
With hope that my resolution would be kept, I bathed fast and walked out of the bathroom to meet Jade.
A black crop top, a ripped faded jeans, a choker and a knee length black boot were waiting on my bed for me to wear.
Did I mention earlier that Jade knows the meaning of fashion more than any model or designer you know in this world?
If I didn't, it's best you know it now; she can bring out a combination that you never knew existed in your closet and that's exactly what she did for me.
"Wow, I never knew this existed in my closet" I commented on the outfit she had selected for me to wear to the mall and seriously I wasn't lying because I always wear all these cute gowns that stop just above the knees with cute flats.
"I know, I never knew you had such things in your closet either. Well, no worries, by the time we get back from the mall you would probably throw them away because they are actually good for nothing, it's just for a while. Very soon you'll be free from these and the wastebin would be their new home" Jade insulted my clothes breathlessly; but left for me I think I'll slay in the outfit and I'm not even planning on throwing it out yet, still I didn't argue with her because I didn't have the strength and we needed to get to the mall and come back before it gets late.
We were back at home just in time for dinner, with lots of shopping bags filled with most of our needs for this summer.
PS: doesn't mean we wouldn't go to the mall again, I mean why would you hate shopping when you get to have new stuffs?
"Hey girls are you back?" Mum called out immediately we entered the house.
"Yep" Jade replied popping the p, while I entered the kitchen where mum was, to give her a peck.
"Hello mum" I said giving her the peck and taking a piece of cup cake. I left the kitchen before she could reply and scold me for taking the cup cake without her permission.
Jade was staying over for the night; she wanted to stay in her words 'to save me from killing myself over two idiots' and I'm absolutely fine with it because if someone doesn't stop me I might probably die thinking about two betrayals who are probably making out somewhere right now.
Jade's P.O.V Ella's like my best friend and sister to the extent that I sometimes forget that we are cousins and that's the more reason I should try to make her happy when she's sad because I know that she'll do the same for me.Anyone who tries to make her unhappy will have it with me and trust me, you wouldn't want to have it with me because you'll hate your life if you do.Anyone who is on her bad side is definitely on my bad side too and anyone who tries to take what's hers (I laugh evilly) should get ready to face my wrath.And I'm gonna give you one warning don't try to think about joining my my 'EVIL - HUMAN - SOUL - LIST' and I guess I've got new members and two for that matter.I left Ella's room and headed for my own room to settle down and also let her settle down before we go down for dinner.Wait g
After spending most of the day getting sun tanned at the beach we decided to go home.On our way home I replayed the events of the previous day in my head, the image of Linc and Sandra doing the gross stuff I saw them doing kept flashing. God how I wanted to get rid of that memory.I know, I know.I said I wasn't going to think of them this summer but come on, a relationship of almost three effing years and a best friend of like since foever, you just can't get rid of the memories that fast.Time they say is supposed to heal ya, so I'll let time do its job.My mind soon drifted to the events of today. It actually felt nice going to the beach today but I don't think I'll be leaving the house again so soon.Ivan Davids.The hot brown head with the muscles.On a different occasion I would've bee
"Ella the cookies are ready, bring them from the kitchen and put them on my big old head" mum said."Okay I'm coming" I answered."Ella open the oven door, it's time" mum ordered me. "Open it up we have thirty minutes until the visitors come" mum said banging on the oven door.Oven door???What?Oven door; cookies on mum's big old head?"Ella open the door; in thirty minutes the visitors would be here...dress up"."Ella open the door, wake up sleepy bunny, I've asked you to stop locking your room door"Room door?Visitors??Oh My God thirty freaking minutes?!And I was busy dreaming of cookies, big-old-fat heads and oven doors."It was only a dream Ella, only a dream" I assured myself aloud.'Knock, knock'&nb
The dinner was quite surprising, really" I told Jade over the phone."How?"she asked."Well guess the people that came over" I told her."Mr and Mrs Humphrey and their annoying air brained daughter?" She said with a little bit of uncertainty in her voice.The Humphreys are a set of unnaturally annoying people. They think they're perfect, the richest–not that I care and above mistakes but the worst part is that they are so frigging far from perfect. They're the worst kind of family you can find in the US.Their so called air brained daughter Miranda is just nothing to write home about, lucky for me she attends the other school in our town; always competing with me for no just cause.Well that's by the way."Nope, you're wrong" I answered purposely keeping her in suspense."Stop making me guess"
“So where are we going” I asked Ivan who was nodding his head to some loud trap music that'll probably give me headache later in the day.He said that the next place we were going to will be our last stop for the day since we've been going around town and I so hope this last stop of ours has something to do with food.“Benny's” he answered casually.“Shut the front door!” I exclaimed feeling thoroughly surprised.Only locals who have stayed in this town for a very long town knows Benny's– a very small eatery– and Ivan hasn't been here for up to a month, and he knows it already.“Don't you like the place?” He asked sounding nervous.Why the hell wouldn't I like the place and why in the whole wide world is he nervous?Before I could stop it, my buccal cavity vomit
“Thank you for saving me back there” I told Ivan weakly once we were in the car.“No problem anytime, after all they deserved it, they don't deserve to be called humans because they don't have hearts” he said grinning, trying to lighten the mood so I had no other option but to return his grin with a forced smile.The drive home was silent, too silent that I didn't realise when we when we got to my house because I was wrapped in my own thoughts.Although the day started well, it's ending with a sore heart. A pain I hid so fast and so well has been dug up and now the pain is worse, I feel like my heart is in pieces. My heart feels like a shattered conical shaped organ.But as cliché as it sounds whenever I remember how Ivan saved me from embarrassment, my heart feels a lot more better. He knows nothing about my past or those people, yet he stood up for me. I don't even want to start thinking of when he called me his girl.“We're here” Ivan said bringing me back to the present.“Oh, thank
“Is it weird that I'm catching feelings for Ivan when I just broke up with Linc?” I asked Jade who was ransacking my closet.It's been three days since she came back from Italy and she came over once I called her for fashion help, given that Ivan had asked me out… as a date.Okay don't crucify me yet. I don't know how I said yes to him, just that whenever he's around me all my reasoning and thoughts become so jumbled up; I think he knows this that's why he was all up in my space yesterday when he asked me prompting me to say yes without even knowing it.“Well since it's Ivan” she said stressing the Ivan. “I don't think it's weird. Just the sight of him can make a girl to break up with her boyfriend, talk less of a single girl—that being you—he's actually interested in” she continued, placing a flower patterned sun dress on my dresser stool and a nude coloured gladiator sanda
Ivan's P.O.V.I arrived at Ella's house—sorry mansion; I feel like I'm insulting the mansion whenever I just call it house because it is so freaking large, like the structure, the fountain, the garden, the drive way, everything is just so large—about three minutes earlier than I was meant to and called her.“Hey, Nuts” I said once she received the call.“Hey, Ivan” she said with a strain in her voice like she was sort of unhappy.“I'm outside but if you aren't ready yet, take your time. I want you to look your best” I said smirking—like she was going to see me—trying my best to make her forget whatever was troubling her. I just hope it isn't those jerks we saw the other day, thinking of them makes me sick.I keep wondering the relationship she has with them, why were so mean to her—more like
