I get in my car and follow the familiar route to the E.C. Cafe. I park my car, get my purse, and say hi to some people I know from class. People are so friendly here. It's hard to imagine that some big even is in a nice town like this, even if it is rather strict with rules and religion. Still, people say hi to you on the street. I like that. I stop to check myself in the cafe window. I wasn't supposed to come see Charlie today, but I couldn't stay away from him. I decided to surprise him with a unscheduled visit.
It's then that I notice him talking to a girl sitting at the table I usually sit at. Well that's not so odd, he has an assigned section. They're laughing and she touches his arm. Must be someone he knows from class or around town. He is from around here, so no big deal. I bet she's from around here too. Probably more like a sister or best friend to him than...wait, sisters and best friends don't do that, they don't kiss each other with tongue like that! I'm so shocked. I can't believe he's kissing someone else.
I feel like my life is crashing down around me. There has to be a good explanation - no, there is no good explanation for sharing lips and tongue with a girl who's not your girlfriend. My cheeks burn in anger. I could go in there and kick his ass if I wanted to...but I can't blow my cover and now I just want to go to my room and cry. No, wait, go to Alexandra's. At least I have her to talk to now that Nicolette is hardly around. I turn to go back to my car and nearly knock down someone behind me.
"Oh, I-I'm sorry. Excuse me." I tried to say through the tears.
"What's wrong? Are you okay?" the person, the guy, asked me.
"I'm fine. I'm sorry. I have to go." I say as I try to walk away.
