It was like the chemicals in his brain were tired of balancing. A crazed look now permanently lived in his icy, grey eyes. As soon as he clambered up the fence and fell into her parent’s back patio, Alice frantically stood from her lounge chair. It was then that she knew she’d never again be able to admire the glittering stars alone every Saturday night. He knew her routine too well.
Alice watched his dark hair fall over his sweaty hairline as he tilted his head down without breaking eye contact. “Seth? What are you doing here? Get the hell out,” Alice threatened.
His chest heaved up and down as if he had sprinted the three miles from his house. “You think you can just end things with me? And that’s it?”
“Yes,” Alice blurted while her confidence unexpectedly plummeted.
“Do you know who I am?” His mouth hung open like his bottom lip was getting too heavy to hold up.
Mindfully deciding not to answer, Alice took a measured step back.
“I am the only person who has been there for you when all your friends decided to drop you. I am the only person who you can trust. I am the only person who can love you—who can love a messed up nobody like yourself. I am the only person who will ever appreciate your dull and bland performance in bed. After all the effort I put into this relationship, you want to just throw me aside? This is why you’re alone.”
“Get out, Seth,” Alice breathed, letting the last shred of courage leave out her mouth with her words.
