I was lying on my bed in my room, studying, when my cell buzzed, alerting me to a message. Ah, Riley had called. I didn’t even hear my phone. I dialed the voicemail box and listened to the voicemail Riley had left. “Hi baby, I’m sorry I won’t be able to come over tonight, I forgot about a test in English Lit I have tomorrow so I’m just going to stay home to study. I’ll call you tomorrow.” I sat back confused. I pressed redial and listened to the voicemail another time trying to find the hidden message. My friend is in the same class and she hadn’t mentioned having a test, I had been with her this afternoon. Still, I decided to call her just in case. I scrolled through my phone until I found her number. “Hey Jen, listen, bit of a random question, but do you have a test in English Lit tomorrow? Riley cancelled our plans because he had to study.” “No, we had it last week. There isn’t another due until next term. I will check for you just in case I have forgotten though, but I don’t think I have. I’ll text you in a few minutes and let you know.” I thanked her and ended the call. He had obviously forgotten I had a friend in the same class as him. I don’t know why but after Christmas, I didn’t fully trust him. I still didn’t know if he was lying about the girl, he had to earn my trust again. My phone alerted me to a message, “no test tmrw. Sorry babe. Riley is definitely lying.” I knew it.
I couldn’t concentrate after I spoke to Jen. I was so pissed that Riley had lied, but why would he lie? He said he would come over and we would watch a movie, nothing really to cancel. He could have just called and say that something had come up. Maybe he had gone to a game with some of his frat brothers. I knew a few of them played for the football team. I needed a change of scenery, so I grabbed my textbook and a few snacks and a can of cola and headed down to the common room.
I was sitting on the sofa in the common room when Emmy rushed in. She was breathless and looking very pink. “Emmy! What the hell? You don’t run!” I called; she was funny. “I’ve. Been. Looking. For you. Everywhere.” She panted. “Why? What’s wrong?” “Our room. Now.” She puffed. She grabbed a bottle of water from the fridge and left, I followed her out the room. What the hell had happened? She never runs. She hates it. We carried on going towards our room, I was getting more nervous, the closer we got. She unlocked the door and immediately fell on to the sofa. “Come sit down. I need to show you something.” Uh oh. This wasn’t good. I walked slowly towards the sofa and lowered myself down, next to where Emmy sat. She pulled her cell phone out of her jeans pocket and unlocked the screen and passed it to me. I looked down. What was I looking at? And then it hit me. Riley. Kissing another girl. “Scroll to the next picture.” She ordered. I swiped my finger across the screen which showed another picture. He was leading her up the stairs. “Son of a bitch!” I yelled. “Was this tonight?” “Yeah, I got it ten minutes before I found you.”
I dropped the phone next to Emmy and ran to the door. I knew exactly where the son of a bitch was. “Julia!! Wait!!” She called after me. I ignored her. I heard about the party tonight, but I said I wasn’t going. There was only one party on that night and that was in the girl’s sorority a few roads down. I stormed down the road, getting angrier and angrier with each step. By the time I got to the door, I was livid. I opened the door and walked right in. There were still people dancing round, people I recognized from classes. I hated seeing classmates out of class. I could kind of respect them in class, but when they were dancing around, almost naked, and shoving their tongues down some random persons throat- all respect was lost. They were all completely oblivious to the shit storm that was about to happen. I took a quick look around, seeing if I could spot him. Nothing. He would still be upstairs. I stormed up the stairs to the rooms. The house was huge, it had a few rooms downstairs and the kitchen was massive. Bigger than mine and Emmy’s dorm. I headed for the stairs; they wouldn’t have looked out of place in a mansion to be honest. I climbed to the top, I could either go left or right, I decided to take the right side, it wouldn’t matter anyway, I wasn’t leaving this place until I found him. Most of the doors were closed. I stuck my head to the door of each one until I heard the unmistakable sounds of people having sex. I opened the door and stormed in.
It wasn’t them. I apologized profoundly and walked back out, my head hanging down in embarrassment. Emmy laughed.
Emmy decided to go back to the stairs and start on that side of the corridor. It would be quicker that way. I walked to the next door and listened through. Again, I heard people having sex. I turned the handle and flung the door open. There, lying on the bed, with his boxer shorts round his ankles, and a girl lying on top of him, sitting on his face whilst she sucked his dick, was my boyfriend Riley. Adrenaline took over as I ran to the bed and grabbed her by her hair and threw her off him. “You fucking slut!” I yelled. “What are you doing with my boyfriend?!” I yelled. “I’m sorry, I didn’t know he had a girlfriend.” She said, whimpering. I didn’t care about her anyway. I recognized her from around campus, but I had no classes with her. People started gathering round the door now, the commotion attracting them, to see what was happening. Riley scrambled down the bed to pull his boxers back up. She grabbed her top and ran out of the room crying. I really didn’t give a shit about that right now. “Baby, it’s not what it looks like!” he pleaded! “What???? What the fuck do you mean it isn’t what it fucking looks like! It looks like some bimbo fucking slut was sucking your tiny fucking dick! People laughed behind me. It didn’t even fucking register that people were there. He jumped up “now hold on a minute!” WHACK! The sound echoing around the room. I heard a chorus of ‘ooohs’ coming from behind me. He grabbed his face, as an angry red handprint appeared across his cheek. The crowd behind me gasped. Emmy came running in. “You fucking cheating bastard. I knew you were sleeping around, and after all that shit you said last night. You are a fucking grade A cheating scumbag. You don’t deserve my girl.” She came over to me and pulled me in for a hug. I started walking me towards the door- but I wasn’t quite finished. I knew that if I left like this, I would regret it. So, I ran back and punched him as hard as I could, right in his nose. His nose cracked and he cried out, as the blood started trickling out of his nose. “You bitch! You broke my nose!” Emmy walked back in and calmly wrapped her arm around me again. “Come on sweetie. Let’s get you home.” We walked through the crowds who had parted to make way for us coming through. Some people cheered, girls called out “well done” and “you go girl” There was lots of clapping and laughing at Riley’s expense. I heard him on the phone a few minutes later asking to be picked up. “Tiny dick!” Emmy yelled as we walked out, our heads held high.
Ouch! Poor Riley… do we feel sorry for him or is this karma in its finest form?
I loved writing this part, it made me laugh.
Let me know if you enjoyed it too!!!
Chapter 6JuliaIt didn’t register to me until the next day that I was single again. I woke up, immediately noticing the pain in my right fist. It took me a good 30 seconds to remember what happened the night before. Riley cheating on me. Seeing him in the middle of performing oral sex on someone who wasn’t me. We hadn’t had sex yet, but we had done stuff. I hated that I still had that vision in my mind. I felt guilty about the other girl though, she didn’t know about me, why would she? It wasn’t like Riley would say “oh I have a girlfriend, but she won’t fuck me. Do you want to do it?” I shook the images out of my mind. I was newly single, Riley could go and fuck everyone on the planet for all I cared. I was done with him. I could no longer trust him.Emmy had been a god send. She found some clean underwear and pajamas in my drawer and lay them on the bed for me. I got changed and
Chapter 7RyanWe had been hanging out for a few weeks. I was trying my best to be a good friend, but fuck if I didn’t want her. Julia and Emmy had been hanging round the coffee shop as often as they could without missing classes or falling behind. I started going round to their place a lot more often too. I was getting closer to her; I could feel her eyes on me sometimes whenever she thought I wasn’t watching, I always found an excuse to tough her, leaving my fingers lingering on her body, it always made her shiver. I love that I was having the same effect on her that she had on me. I hadn’t ever wanted a girl like I wanted her. Every day we spent together, we got closer. I wanted her so much. Even Emmy could see what we were doing. She called it ‘our sex face’. Not very original but fuck it. I am a big fucking soppy fucker, but what the hell? I’m falling for her. Big time.We were watching a
Chapter 8Julia“I love you Julia, I’m in love with you.” Yeah, I heard it correctly. Ryan loves me. I felt my heart bursting with need for him, I needed him to know how I felt about him, how much I had been needing him. I wrapped my arms around his neck, slowly pulling his head down to meet mine. I was only an inch away from his lips. My stomach filled with butterflies, overwhelming me with lust and desire. I needed this. “Kiss me” I breathed. His lips crashed down on to mine, as cliché as it was, I felt everything fall into place. They say that when you meet the one made for you, you felt it in the first kiss. I really could feel it. Everything washed away, every thought, every feeling, just vanished. There was nothing else but this kiss. It was perfect. We carried on kissing, slowly, tasting each other. His kisses were perfect. I could feel the butterflies were now doing backflips and somersaults
Chapter 9RyanWe had been together for just under ten months. We were going to be celebrating our one year anniversary in a few months. Things were amazing. We would go out to parties, drink, they would dance, and I would stand close to them, making sure no other fucker went anywhere near them. I would help them get back home and then I would stay over with my girl. It was coming up to Christmas. I asked my girl to come back with me to meet my mom, then we were flying over to her parent’s home to meet her parents and brother. I wasn’t nervous about meeting them. She was really nervous about meeting my mom though. We had packed everything up and were planning on an early night before the early flights the next morning. I was staying at my own place tonight- Julia and Emmy weren’t going to see each other for a few weeks so they were staying in and having a girlie night- whatever the fuck that was. Make up and shit. I w
Chapter 10RyanI woke up a few hours later, my alarm buzzing, waking me up. My head was banging through lack of sleep. I tried calling Julia right away, but her phone went straight to voicemail. I showered and was ready before I tried calling again. Still voicemail “Hey Julia, I don’t know who told you about last night, but I swear it wasn’t what you think. She knocked into me, spilling her drink all over my shirt, and as I turned to leave, she grabbed and kissed me. I pushed her off me straight away. I’m sorry baby, but I swear it’s the truth. I love you. I’m not giving up on us. I’m gonna go back to my moms, I’ll try and catch a later flight and wait to see if you turn up at the airport. I love you baby, I know you love me, we’ll get past this, I promise” I hung up.I opened the bedroom door, finding Oliver passed out on the sofa. I know it was irrational, but I blam
Chapter 11RyanI hadn’t been able to concentrate all day. My shift started 40 minutes after my last class. I couldn’t be late, so I couldn’t stop by Julia’s first. I walked in to see Grey flirting whilst serving a couple of girls. “Knock it off dude. They’re not interested.” I laughed. “Hey Ryan! What’s up man?” He came off and pulled me in for a bear hug. “Help me!” He begged under his breath. I laughed out loud as he turned round to give his full attention to the girls at the counter. “Nah man, sorry, I’m out the game for a while. He stopped, turning back to me with a quizzical look on his face. “What?” he asked, slowly. “Don’t worry, get back to your girls.” I answered, nodding in their direction. “I’m gonna go and check in with the boss.” I said, leaving him alone. “Alright man, we’ll talk
Chapter 12RyanI had been placed in a cell with another guy already in there. I could smell the alcohol from the other side of the room. “If he pukes, I want another cell!” I called as the officer walked away. I sat down on the thin mattress on one side of the cell, whilst the drunk stayed on the other. As far away from him as I could possibly get. I had been sitting there for God knows how long when an officer called my name. “It’s time for the interview now son, follow me. Do I need to cuff you, or will you walk on your own?” “I can walk on my own.” I replied. He nodded. “Ok, this way.” He led me down the corridor past the front desk where I had been booked in. He opened a door and guided me inside. “Take a seat Mr. Cobain. Officer Cox will be in shortly.” I took a seat on one side of the desk. I waited for a few minutes, listening for anybody approaching. I heard foo
Chapter 13JuliaI was due to start at the University of Texas just after Christmas. I was utterly heartbroken by what Ryan did. I never thought he would cheat on me, and now that he had; I felt like I was going to die. The need to vomit was so overwhelming sometimes. I just needed a clean break. A place where I can start again.The day I was supposed to go to his mom’s house with him for Christmas, I called my mom. I told her what had happened and that I was scared of seeing him when he came back after Christmas. I suggested moving back home and doing college next year, I was only 17, I wasn’t supposed to technically be in college for another year anyway. But my mom wouldn’t hear of it. They had already paid for my tuition. I decided to look into transferring schools, being closer to home. I would miss Emmy so much, but every time I even thought about Ryan, my heart would shatter. I told my mom that I wanted t
