As if last night sermon wasn't enough. My mom made sure I had an earful at breakfast this morning while my dad kept chipping in every now and then in support.
And part of the punishment for being grounded is having to survive a whole week without my phone and television plus 7pm curfew with zero access to the internet for a week is really the height of it.
Depression doesn't even come close to how I feel. My heart is broken with every bit of its scattered fragment buried deep into the mud.
I left home for school feeling like a fun part of my life have been stripped off me and am being thrown into the medieval world to face it with clubs and bows.
Only difference is, this is the twenty first century and phone is a basic necessity. Maybe not for my parent who totally believe one can actually do without it in a matter of just one week.
I wouldn't be this pissed off if I had other alternatives but my life is as borin
Kara and I turned around to stare back at Carlos. He looked different with bruised cheeks and busted lips. The purple marking around his eyes was starting to fade out but one could clearly see how terrible it was before that moment. Was he involved in a fight also? Because when I met him in school yesterday, he looked like the perfect teenage boy and now, I barely recognized him if not for his usual friendly demeanor and blue eyes. I couldn't help but glance back at the direction of Logan whose bruises were looking almost the same as Carlos but i find that he was no longer there. What the heck was going on? Why is everyone looking like they are just returning home from world war Z. Don't get me wrong okay?_because When I said everyone? In my head, it's pretty much just Logan and Carlos all the way. I'm well aware those two hate each other even before I met neithe
*Maybe I did care for Logan but not enough to spare him from my next word."Look Logan, i'd be lying if I said I have thought about us being friends because I haven't and probably won't either so how about we do it this way"His brow furrowed at my words but that didn't stop me from explaining further. "You and me can try as much as possible to be nice to each other every other day we run into ourselves without putting a label on it""What does that mean?""It means we can still be friends without actually being friends"He covered the remaining distance between us and held me across the shoulders. With his eyes holding mine hostage yet again. "So you are saying we can be strangers and friends at the same time?"I answered with a shrug. "Well if you put it that way then I guess yes"His hands fell back to his s
After lunch. Carlos decided to walk with me to my next class and I was totally grateful for it.The last thing I needed is to somehow run into Logan again in the hallway after what I did to him a while back.I'm certain he might get back at me for trying to destroy his balls. But it's not like I didn't warn him. He was the one that choose to play two deaf ears to any of my words.We came to a stop a few distance away from my class. I still have a few minutes to spare before my class begins when I glanced at my watch.Carlos kept moving from one foot to the next while scratching at the back of his neck in an awkward manner.His eyes met mine momentarily before he swallowed hard and reached for my hand and took it in his and I just let him, wondering what he could be up to.He gave my hand a little squeeze before looking up at me. I cocked a brow at him in confusion and his bright smile wavered a little.His mouth opened s
*Weekend came rather quickly with me doing everything I could to keep myself calm and not over think a simple thing as going on my very first date with Carlos.My mom had released my phone like two days ago and I couldn't be any happier. I was finally able to feel whole again if not drunk with happiness.I had just finished from the bathroom and was still nervously pacing around my bedroom with a single towel wrapped around my body with another around my hair that was still dripping wet.Carlos had called me like a minute ago that he was on his way to come pick me.My parent agreed I could go on the date only if I agree to get home early before it late and I couldn't protest on it. I was totally grateful I was even allowed to go out in the first place.Maybe it was because they realized how important
*Carlos and I arrived at this really fancy restaurant at the outskirt of town and I couldn't help but marvel at the building and its surrounding environment.I turned and raised a brow at him when I realized the kind of place he has brought us. I don't need to be able to speak Italian to know Carlos had brought us to one."Italian restaurant" I stated and he just nod in reply."Have you been here before?""No I haven't but_""_then you are going to love it""Yeah but this place look really expensive. Are you sure it's a good idea for us to eat here?,I mean we can just go someplace else you know. I won't mind at all"I start to protest but instead of agreeing with him, he just chuckled at me instead. I bet I sound really lame if not poor."It's okay Ava. You don
* Logan walked over to our table in a menacing way and stood staring at me while ignoring Carlos presence completely. I couldn't help but stare right into his eyes. It felt like I was drowning in them. I couldn't break eye contact with him either. I was beyond hypnotized. It was as if the air around me has been knocked right out of my lungs and I was left to breathe through his mere presence by my side. Gosh! He pulled out a cigarette and a lighter from his pocket and lit it. He held it up to his lip and took a long drag still maintaining eye contact with me. Logan chuckled dryl
* Carlos and I ended up at an ice cream booth and I couldn't stop blushing. He actually remembered the option I gave him the day he was asking me out on a date. "What!" "Ice cream really?" I asked, cocking a brow at him. "I do remember someone telling me she likes vanilla ice cream with extra topping" he answered, amusingly. Looking down at my hand, I answered sheepishly. "Yeah, you are right" "Come on then, let go get some for you" We walked up to a b
*Carlos and I were pretty inseparable for the next couple of days that followed. We texted every minute and second of each day. We even met up in secret places at every single opportunity we got and made out a lot too.It's been one crazy week since and to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way though. Carlos has been the best boyfriend so far. He makes sure to pick me from home to school and drops me after.We have bonded so well that I practically craves his presence these days and he in turn has been making out time for me too.I didn't even tell Kara about my sneaky rendezvous with Carlos which was very much unlike me, when normally I'd tell her about every single damn thing, as if she was my therapist.Well, I guess that's what best friends do. Tell each other things they wouldn't normally talk to their parent about.
