Episode 29

I stood up and went out the door heading down the stairs.

I stopped when I saw my Mum laughing with the person I never thought would appear in my house.

I clenched my fists. “What are you doing here?”.

“I came to visit Mum”. He said smiling at my Mum.

“I guess I’ll just leave you two to talk”. My Mum stood and walked out of the living room.

I followed her to the Kitchen. “Mum, what the h*ll is he doing here?”.

“What’s wrong with him being here?”.

“He is not allowed in this house”.

She sighed. “Its been years, Kyle. Give him a break”.

“I’m gonna kick him out of this house”.

“Okay, what happened to you both? You used to be best friends”.

“Mum, why are you sounding like you don’t know what he did to me”. I said frustratingly.

“Kyle, Brie killed herself not him. For the love of God, get that into your head”.

“Are you trying to say that I should just ignore the fact that he caused Brie’s death?”.

“As your mother, i’ll tell you this. You are being selfish and self centered”.

I was taken aback. “What do you mean by that?”.

“That boy lost his Mum, his Dad and now his little sister has frequent panic attacks but the only thing you lost is your so called girlfriend”.

I paused. “He lost his Dad?”.

“You better go talk to him meanwhile I’ll be upstairs”. She said and walked away.

What the h*ll? Bryan lost his Dad?

I frowned at the thought of that as i walked back to the living room.

I stood up when i saw Kyle come in.

“Say what you have to say and get out”.

“That was harsh”. I said dramatically holding my chest.

“You really have got guts to show your face here”. He said gritting his teeth.

“Is that how to greet an old friend?”. I asked quizzically.

He scoffed. “Friend? We are not friends”.

I groaned. “How many times do I have to say sorry?”.

He sat on a couch. “Is it true?”.

I looked at him. “Huh?”.

“You lost your dad?”. He asked.

I sighed as I sat on a different couch.

“I haven’t spoken to my Dad for years”. I said truthfully.

“I’m sorry”. He told me.

I stared at him surprised, Kyle never apologizes.

“And also sorry for what happened to Tori”. He added.

“I’m not here for any apology”.

He crossed his arms. “Then why are you here?”.

“For Elsa”.

“What happened? She left you?”. He mocked me.

“I know you like her”.

His expression changed. “I don’t like your little girlfriend”.

“Well she’s not my girlfriend yet”.

“You are worried that I’m going to do something to her?”.

“Kyle please don’t. Elsa has gone__”.

He cut me off. “I won’t hurt her”.

“For real?”.

“I think you’ve been hurt enough”.

I stood up. “So we cool?”.

He stood up also and walked past me heading out the main door. Where the heck is he going?

I followed him out and met him by the porch.

“I miss Brie”. He spoke all of a sudden.

I tucked my hands in my pocket. “I miss her too”.

“I just wish she hadn’t taken her life”.

“I’m sorry for what I__”.

“Stop apologizing, my ears hurt already”. He said interrupting me.

I chuckled softly. “I also miss the old Kyle, my best friend”.

“I’m sorry for what I did, ignoring you when I started dating Brie”.

“That was years ago. I’ve forgiven you”.

“And sorry for what I did to Maddie, i know she was your first girlfriend but I ruined your relationship”.

I looked at him weirdly. “Why the sudden change?”.

“My Mum was right, i’m being selfish. I lost only my girlfriend but you lost more than that”.

“So technically, you are feeling sorry for me?”. I asked confused.

“Yeah after all its my fault, i shouldn’t have gone ahead with Brie embarrassing you like that, making you the laughing stock of school”.

“Don’t remind me of that”. I said hurt.

“All I’m trying to say is that i should have still be by your side even though I began dating Brie”.

“I shouldn’t have got jealous anyways”. I replied.

He turned to look at me. “Come on, let me take the blame this time”.

I stretched my hand out. “Friends?”.

“Bro before hoes?”.

I laughed. “Okay then, bro with hoes”.

He took my hand and pulled me into a hug.

He pulled away. “Nice to have you back”.

“Same here”.

“Just for the record, you better ask Elsa out before I take her”. He joked.

“I’ll keep that as a reminder”.

“I need to talk to Carl, he was really upset about that Tori issue”.

“Don’t worry. I’ll talk to him”. I reassured him.

“So Tori, is she fine?”.

“She’s okay”.


“She hates your guts”. I told him.

“She is definitely gonna skin me alive”.

I bursted out into laughter. Back when we were still best friends, Kyle was always afraid of Mia.

“Your dad?”.

My laughter faded. “He talks to Mia and also Tori”.

“Have you tried talking to him?”.

I smiled sadly. “A lot of times but he never pick my calls neither does he answer my voice notes or voicemail i send to him”.

He gave me a small smile.

“You no longer angry with me?”. I asked curious.

He rested on the porch. “I still am but its lessened”.

I nodded.

I was interrupted by his phone ringing.

He took it immediately, i noticed his expression changed as he listened to whoever was on the phone.

After a while, he slowly placed his phone back into his pocket.

“What’s wrong?”.

“Don’t angry at me”.

I furrowed my eyebrows. “What are you talking about?”.

“Elsa. Mason has her and I’m guessing its because of me”.

I held my backpack tightly as I walked out of the town’s library. I had cone here to look for ideas for my r0mantic poetry.

I walked down the almost empty street, something doesn’t feel right.

I look back occasionally to see if I’m being followed, I should have taken my car.

Suddenly i hear my phone ring in my pocket, i take it and checked the caller’s I.D.


Why is she calling? Whats wrong

I picked the call. “Beverly, whats up”.

“Elsa where are you?”. Her voice depicted worry.

“I just came out of the Library, i’ll be back home in like 20 minutes. Why?”.

“I’ll come pick you up but for the mean time just watch out”.

“What are you__”.

My phone is jerked away by someone, i look around to see who did that. Mason?

He yanked me with so much force into a deserted area.

“Let me go”. I tried to fight him.

I release a loud shriek so as to attract people but he placed his disgusting hand on my mouth tightly.

He pulled me to a corner and pushed me to a brick wall, i looked at his cold and vi0lence filled eyes with dread.

I tried to wiggle out of his hold but he wouldn’t budge. He held my waist so tightly that it hurt.

“What do you want from me?”. I whimper from fright.

He chuckled evilly. “Lets just say you are my tool for revenge”.

Revenge? What the heck is he saying?

“Lets see how Kyle reacts to this”. I heard him mutter faintly.
