Melannie couldn't remember the last time she felt something. While Ace remembers every sting and ache. Both of their chaotic worlds collide and through every moment they share, one starts to feel and the other starts to heal. The only thing standing in between is that it's a cycle of pain, and no one knows how to get out.View More
The car is back, everything is okay with Chloe, and I am with Ace again.I'm not hanging out with him because Chloe said that it's fine and she doesn't care. She's lying, she's not fine, and she does care, which means that it's still not fine with me. It's Ace that won't leave me alone."Are you sure we should do this?" I ask him."Admit it or not, you want to do this.""Not if we're going to get caught.""We're not, okay?" He says and brings out another pack of weed."This feels like a crime." I say and he chuckles."Because it is."
After breakfast at Ace’s, I quickly headed home and facetimed Ollie. Good thing mom didn’t hear me, she was still asleep, she must’ve been tired from work.“I don’t know what to do, Ollie.” I groan, plopping myself down on my bed.“The guy definitely has anger issues,” He mumbles through the phone, getting sidetracked for the fourth time since I called.“You’re not listening to me!” I yell.“Of course, I am! You told me that Tristan made you take this drug and was about to take advantage of you-which you should report-Ace found out and came to the rescue-that was so hot, by the way-and then he took you to the lake, where he punched the hell out of a tree and then the both of you made out, completely intoxicated.” He says in jus
Mel’s POVWhy does the grass feel so good?The stars look brighter, even the moon looks so shiny.I feel a comb brushing through my hair and I giggled.“Ooh yeah, I like it, keep doing that,” I say and my pillow started to shake causing me to quickly sit up and vomit.No joke. Literal vomit.The comb rubs my back and I reached back to put it back on my head only to hold up someone’s hand.I jumped in surprise and opened my mouth to scream but I puked instead.Feeling drained, I laid back on my pillow inhaling a familiar scent. I roll on my stomach and pressed my face against the pillow and took a deeeep breath.“It’s smells so good,” I sigh.
“Where’s your key?” Ace asks me while helping me out of the car and walked me to our porch, he holds out his left hand while his right one is gripping my arm.“I don’t know…they’re in Chloe’s car? I think,”I seriously cannot remember, why can’t I remember?“They’re in what?”“I said they’re in Chloe’s car!” I yell.“Gosh, you are much more complicated when you’re high,” He sighs and pulls me back inside his car.“Where are we going?” I ask but he didn’t answer.We were still on the road and I feel my stomach turning once again.Ace turns the AC off and the window beside me rolls down, the cold air hits my face and I let out a groan.Ok, yeah I’m high.It just felt so good.So good that I even opened up my mouth, put my tongue out and let it taste the cold air.I feel my whole body tense up and restless, the lights on the road seem much brighter, making my head spin, I giggled for no apparent reason and now I feel like puking.Ace takes a turn and the street lights are gone, replacing
“Mel, you made it!” Tristan smiles and gives me a tight hug.“Um, hello? We’re here too,” Ollie waves his hands in front of him. Tristan chuckles and was about to give him a hug but Danny pulls Ollie to him by the waist.Chloe rolls her eyes.“Where are the drinks?” Chloe asks Tristan and he chuckles.“Follow me,” He says and gestures for us to follow him.We make our way through the crowd. Some were dancing, some were sitting on the couch, some were playing games, I quickly stopped observing the surroundings when I felt a hard grip on my wrist, causing me to stop walking.“There you are, I’ve been looking for you,&rdquo
“Bro, you’re coming to my party, right?” Tristan asks me.We just finished our exams and we’re both walking to the cafeteria with Paul.“Oh yeah, you going for it, man?” Paul asks Tristan with a grin, playfully hitting his arm, I furrow my brows in confusion.“Going for what?” I ask.“Paul and I made this bet,” Tristan starts.No.“Not another bet, Tristan,” I frown.“We’ve talked about this, that’s bull!” I add.“Oh come on, Ace.” He tries to reason with me.
I woke up at nearly 10. My head hurts so much but I have to fix my things.“How’s Chloe?” I whisper to Ollie. She hasn’t woken up yet.“She cried a lot last night then dozed off to sleep. She’ll get over him,” He rolls his eyes.I hope so.When I came back to our tent last night after talking to Ace, they were both asleep. Poor Chloe.I also felt guilty. I made her think that Ace actually likes her, if I hadn’t forced Ace, none of this would have happened. I knew that he had a choice, but I made him feel like he didn’t. Oh god, what have I done?
Mel's POVWe kept on playing the game for about ten more minutes (more or less).It was fun, Chloe dared me to strip one of my clothes off every time I ask, and when someone asks me a question.I had already taken off the beanie and scarf Tristan gave me, along with my boots and socks.We were interrupted by cheers outside. They were all laughing and hooting, we all peeked out the tent to check what's happening.
