“Could this song be about me?” Leah thought to herself. “hmm I don’t want to ask him though, because that would make everything all awkward.”
She started to do her homework listening to all the tracks on the CD. By the time she was done, she practically memorized most of lyrics and could sing along here and there.
“I love his voice..” She thought as she put away her books.
All of the sudden her phone rings. It’s Devon.
“Hello.” she answers.
“Hey baby. Sorry I couldn’t take you. I was busy.”
“You’re a jerk. What was so important that I had to walk home?”
“Don’t worry about it.” Devon says.
It was always like this. He never really told her everything and kept things to himself. Every time she questioned him, he’d say that she’s being naggy or jealous. Some way or another, he’d switch it around to make her look like the bad person. What’s worse was that she fell for it. She didn’t know how to stick up for herself, because she didn’t want to lose him.
“Anyway” Devon continued. “You trying to hang out tonight or what?”
“It’s a school night, so I’d have to be home early if I do go out.”
“All right. So I’ll scoop you up in like 30?”
“Finally!” Leah thought to herself. “I get one on one time with him. We’ve been over due for a date.” She got ready quickly, because she was so excited.
She later gets a text that he’s outside. She says good-bye to her parents to let them know she’s heading out and they tell her to be home by 10:30. She nods and goes out to the car.
To her surprise Stan was in the car with Devon.
“C’mon! let’s go!” Devon yells out the window.
They make Leah sit in the back seat and Devon doesn’t even give her a hug or a kiss.
“Damn yo, there’s going to be mad females at this party. I’m about to get my dick wet!” laughs Stan.
Devon laughs and responds, “Hopefully me too” as he looks back at Leah and winks at her.
They get to the party and everyone is drinking. Leah felt really uncomfortable around all these people she didn’t know and didn’t want to stay. She looked at Devon and sees him giving handshakes to a lot of people, so she knew if she told Devon she wanted to leave he’d get mad. She sat on the couch while he started playing beer pong. He sucked, but he acted like he was so good and complained about how the table was crooked when it wasn’t. Leah played on her phone and hours went by slowly for her. She looked up at Devon and she could tell he wasn’t ready to leave, but it was 10 and they needed to start heading back if she wanted to make it back by her curfew.
“Babe.” She called Devon, but he ignored her. ‘Babe!” she said again louder, but he waved her off “DEVON!” she said as she got up and walked toward him. “I need to get home. It’s already 10.”
“What.. already!? The party just started! Come on, let’s just stay a little longer” He told her.
“Really.. I have 30 minute till curfew. Let’s go.”
“Oh.. I see what you mean. You want to leave early so we can..” Devon turns back around and give his homies high fives, because he thinks he’s about to get some.
“What?! ugh. Come on.”
“hahaha all right.. let’s go!” He says as he grabs her from behind and pushes his crotch against her back end.
“What the fuck..Calm down. I just want to go home” she says and she takes his hands off her waist.
“What baby?! I’m just trying to have fun!” he laughs as they’re about to go out the door.
“DEVON!” You’re not leaving yet are you??” says Cathy as she stops him.
Devon looks at Leah and tells her, “Wait for me at the car. I’ll be there in a sec.”
She rolls her eyes and proceeds to walk to his car by herself.
15 minutes pass and she calls Devon’s cell but he doesn’t pick up. She goes back into the house to look for him and doesn’t see him, but sees Stan.
“Stan! Have you seen Devon?!” Leah asks.
“Nah..” he says smiling and walks away.
“Devon? That cute guy right?!” some girl says. “Yeah. I think I saw him go upstairs with Cathy.”
Leah’s face turns to disgust as she walks up stairs. She opens one of the doors and she sees Devon and Cathy. They don’t even notice she came in while she finds them on the bed making out. She slams the door with tears in her eyes and runs downstairs and out of the house.
“Ugh! I’m so fucking stupid! I can’t believe I fell for that jerk!” She cries as she pulls out her phone to call someone for a ride home. The first person she calls is Bryce.
Bryce’s phone rings, but he’s in the shower and doesn’t hear it. Her call goes to his voicemail and she hangs up.
“dammit… Bryce. I need you. I fucked up.” she says to herself as she calls him again.
His phone rings again and someone picks up. ”Hello?”
Leah’s jaw drops. A female answered his phone.
(End of part 4)
Lol, I honestly forgot what I wrote, I’ll have to re read it and come up with something. I’m extremely busy though. Right after I draw this comic I came up with i’ll write it.
Drawing something this week. I don’t know what yet, but I shall do something because people have been leaving me messages to come back.
So, here I am and I shall deliver. -ComicStory
I don’t know what this means. Help?
Thank you so much. I’m glad you like them.
I’ve been so busy, caught up with so much stuff to do that I barely have time for my significant other. I can’t promise you I’ll write another part by christmas, but I’ll try.
To be honest, story time 3 is quite boring to me. LOL. I want to throw it out, or make the story so much shorter than the other ones. Not sure, but we’ll see. I haven’t even had time to make new comics. We’ll see though. Thanks again. =]
He looked at his phone in hesitation to call her.
“What should I say? … We haven’t even talked in so long. She’ll think I’m a fool. I just won’t do it.”
5 minutes later, he gets a text. ”Happy Thanksgiving” it said. He knew it was a mass text to not only him but a bunch of her friends as well, but he thought, “at least she though of me.”
“Happy thanksgiving to you. I’m blessed to have ever met you. Thank you for being a part of my life.” he texted back.
“I’m thankful for you too. Thank you so much for everything.” she replied back.
”Now’s my chance.” he thought. He had so much to tell her. So much he’s been wanting to say, but has always held back since they broke up. “I’ll tell her I’m thankful for her. For her love and showing me what true happiness is really like. Tell her I’m thankful for whole being, and without her, I’d never be half the person I am today. I’d tell her..—”
He suddenly gets a phone call. He freezes. It’s her.
“Hello?” he picks up.
“Hey.. long time no talk huh?” she says cheerful.
“uh.. yeah.. really long time. How you been?” he replies shyly.
“good… good.. and you?”
“i’m .. uh..”
“look you know what?” she interrupts him. “Don’t answer that. I called you, because… because… BECAUSE I wanted to say… Thank you. And Thanksgiving came along and it just seemed like the right moment to finally tell you this.” She said.
”..tell me what?”
“ugh.. nevermind. I don’t know how to explain this, I’ll talk to you later.”
“No! Wait.. Wait.. please. If you’re not going to say anything, then let me.” He answered.
“okay.. then… what?” She asked.
“Thank you for a year ago and 24 days.”
“huh?!” She said confused.
“You don’t remember..? Heh.. it’s the day we met.”
The next day, Leah planned to surprise Devon at his house. Her sister dropped her off, but before Leah could door bell, the door opens. It’s a girl followed by Devon. Devon’s eyes widened at the sight of Leah being at his door step.
“Leah! What a surprise! Let me walk her to her car really fast I’ll be back.” says Devon as he walked the girl to her car.
“Yesterday was great and thanks for breakfast this morning.” the girl says as she hugs Devon good bye.
Leah’s chest began to sting a bit hearing those words. Leah watches him lean in through the window as he says his good byes to her.
After she drives off, Devon walks back to the front door where Leah was still standing.
“Hey baby I missed you.” he says as he hugs her.
“hi… I know I came to surprise you.” She says as she smelled his shirt. It smelt like female body spray.
“Come on, let’s go inside” He says as he takes her hand and closes the door behind them. “Are you hungry?”
“No I’m okay.”
“You can eat a little.. come on.. I’ll cook you bacon..” He says as he temps her.
“Okay fine. haha. You talked me into it. Only a little though. I’m not too hungry.”
“haha.. all right.”
As he is cooking, she notices Devon has a hickey on his neck. She tries to remain calm no matter how furious she is.
“Hey I’m going to go to the bathroom.” Leah says.
” All right hurry back. The food is almost done.” he replies.
She walks past the bathroom and into his room. She looked around the room to see if there was any evidence of the girl sleeping with Devon. Before she was about to give up and leave the room, she sees a pink lace under his bedsheet.
“What are you doing in here? I thought you were going to use the bathroom.”
“Is this why you couldn’t pick me up yesterday?! Because you were busy fucking some stupid bitch? “
“The fuck are you talking about?!”
“What the fuck is this Devon!?” She moved the bed sheets to reveal the pink laced panties.
“Look I don’t know how they got there.”
“Bull shit Devon. The fuck is that?! I’ll tell you how they got there. You screwed that dumb hoe that you walked to her car! That’s how it got there! And you want me to eat the left overs that she had?!”
“Well.. I was making you bacon..”
“Fuck you Devon!” She says as she storms out of his house.
She already walked a block from his house and he never even chased after her. She sat on the curb and started crying harder. An hour passes and still nothing. She digs her head into her arms that hugged her knees.
“You know, you shouldn’t be so careless with your life. What if someone kidnapped you?”
She looked up with tears in her eyes to see it’s Bryce. He wipes her tears with his sleeve. “..what are you doing here?” She asks
“Well… I was driving to the store, but then I saw you here, so I thought I’d keep you company if you don’t mind. After all, misery loves good company. Maybe I could be that good company for the time being.”
“Why are you so good to me? I swear, I don’t even deserve your friendship.”
“No one should have to hurt alone, plus, I don’t think I could ever forgive myself if I just left you here. Come on, let’s go. I’ll take you out to eat. I’m starving, how about you?”
“A little… “
They get up and drive to iHop to get breakfast.
As they sat their eating their food, Bryce asks, “So, if you don’t mind me asking, what happened?”
“I don’t want to talk about it.”
“Oh… all right… That’s fine. I won’t push it.” He says as he sees her still sad. “Hey.. you know, it’s almost Halloween. You want to come with me to the pumpkin patch? I could sure use your help in picking one out… if you’re not busy that is.”
“Sure. I’d like that.”
As soon as they get to the pumpkin patch, Leah’s eyes light up.
“This is my first time ever coming to one.” she says excitedly.
“Really? Well, this is my first time buying my own pumpkin. I got to pick the perfect one, but before we do that, you want to ride some rides?”
“Yeah! I’m so down!”
They arrived at a boat looking ride. Bryce got in first and Leah had to sit in between his legs and lean back into his chest. The ride was going extremely fast and they were screaming at the top of their lungs. All of the sudden the ride stopped at the top.
“Bryce, I’m getting really scared.. why did the ride have to break down on us!?”
He wrapped his arms around her. “Don’t worry. I got you.”
All of the sudden the ride started again and he held onto her tighter as they went do the big drop. They got off the ride laughing and smiling together and then there they saw it. The perfect pumpkin.
“That’s it!” She said. “Get this one! It’s nice, round, doesn’t have too many scratches.. it’s perfect!”
“You’re right! Wow. What luck! I’m totally getting this one.” Bryce says as he picks the pumpkin up. “Wait. You should have this one that way we both have one.” He says as he gives her that pumpkin and takes the one that was sitting next to the one they picked.
“I thought you wanted a perfect pumpkin though?” She said.
“Nah it’s okay, you can have the perfect one. I have the one next to perfect.”
“Aw.. it’s like the boyfriend and girlfriend pumpkin!” She says smiling and laughing.
Bryces eyes widen. “Boyfriend and girlfriend pumpkin?” he thought in his head. He began to smile.
“Let’s go to my place and carve them yeah?” Bryce says
“Yeah! let’s go! I haven’t seen your family in a long time. I miss them.” she says.
They pay for the pumpkin and they head home.
To be continued.
(end of part 4)
I don’t know how long this has been sitting in my inbox, so my bad.
Hm, all I can really say is that from what I did, and it worked for me at least, is out of sight out of mind. I basically delete the number, the sns, the messages, threw away pictures and anything that reminded me of what used to be. Of course the thought still lingers in your mind, but sooner or later you’ll start to think less.
Go out have fun. Hang out with friends. Don’t do anything stupid though, because maybe later down the road, you’ll meet someone new like I did. It might not be easy letting someone in again, but misery loves good company and I’ve surely found it in the one I’m with today. Don’t think you’re ever alone. You have friends and family, and if no one wants to listen, I surely will.
