Cassadee's Pov: I waited in the waiting room for my Mother to get out of the office. I started fiddling with my fingers in anitcipation. Why would "A" Dob me in? I haven't done anything to this "A" Person. The office door swung open and out stepped my Mother, with a solem expression on her face and her purse clutched tightly in one arm.
"Cass lets go" Her voice was hard and blunt. I gulped knowing that I have alot of explaining to do.
We drove home in silence. Not a word was spoken. I was waiting to be yelled at but nothing was said. Once my Mother parked the car in the driveway she turned to look at me. I expected her to be angry, to rip my head off, but all I saw was worry as she stared blankly in front of her. She took a deep breath and combed her fingers through her knotted brown hair.
"I know you didnt steal it on purpose Cass" Her words came out in a soft tone as she continued to stare blankly in front of her. I narrowed my eyes cautiously. How could she possibly know this?
"The camera's show you picking up the clothes and walking out. It doesnt have you trying to steal it. My best guess is that you forgot to take it off" Mum says, turning to look at me.
"Your've always been so forgetful"
"Yes I forgot! I didnt mean to and I was going to return it but I was kicked out and I panicked and I didnt know what to do" I rambled. My Mum still had a look of worry on her face.
"Why didnt you tell me? I could have returned it, I am a officer of the law too ya know" Her voice is thick with concern.
"I honestly dont know why" I admitted, looking down at my tucked in shirt.
"Next time please tell me, your lucky that you only got off with a fine" She says as she climbs out of the car.
"How much?" I ask as I climb out too.
"Don't you worry about that I've got it under control" She says and unlocks the front door. "Just go to bed, you have school in the morning" She says tiredly and grabs a drink from the fridge.
I run upstairs and sit on my bed. I wonder if the rumours of me being a theif has already spread around the school. Hayley, Josh and Taylor called me earlier to check on me, but theres been no word from Dakotah. I decide to go to sleep early to get my mind off things.
Hayley's Pov: I was worried about Cass. I had no idea that she stole a necklace or why she would do it in the first place. It just seems like Cass isn't the sort of person to do that. Plus Dakotah has bearly spoken a word to me about her life. Ever since Alex's party she seems sad. Guilty even. Maybe she's not telling me somethin-
"Ow!" I yelped as I smacked into someone, falling on my ass.
"Sorry! I didn't see you there" Jack says as he helps me to my feet. He holds me in his arms until I pull away.
"It's ok it was a accident" I murmur rubbing my arm. He just stares at me before shaking his head and moving past me.
"Why wern't you in class the other day?" I blurt out causing him to stop in his tracks. He turns to me with sadness in his eyes. "I had therapy" He says in a small voice. My eyes go wide in shock.
"Therapy? Why?" I ask as I move closer to him. He just shakes his head and turns away. "You wouldn't understand"
He gives me a tired look. "You wont understand because you have moved on, your happy again" I wince when I realise that his therapy sessions are about me. About us.
He just shakes his head again and mutters something under his breath. That's when the bell rings interupting our conversation. "I have to get to class" His voice cracks.
"Jack if you ever need to talk or just need someone to lean on-"
"Don't do that" He cuts me of with a weak voice. I frown looking into his tired eyes. "Don't make me love you anymore than I already do"
A frown sinks onto my lips as his words register inside my head. He still loves me. I just stand there motionless as he turns and walks away, his feet dragging behind him. I just stand there thinking about what he said, watching him slink away.
Cassadee's Pov: As I entered the school gates I could feel everyones eyes on me, burning holes into the sides of my face as they continued to whisper many different things about me. Usually I am used to being watched because of my popularity, but this was different. Way different. I ingored all the uncomfortable stares as I pushed my way to my locker. I hated this treatment so much and I have only been here for about 5minutes. I opened my locker to find a blue envolope with a big "A" On it, gently placed ontop of my books. What could "A" Possibly want from me now? I opened it and read
You wanna know who dobbed you in?
But the begining letter starts with a D
She hangs out with you all the time
And she knew that you did this crime
You figure out the rest ;)
What? This poem doesn't make sense. "A" Was the only person that knew about this, and the only person who I hangout with all the time is...
Dakotah's Pov: I knew that Cass was going to be in huge trouble, considering that I was the one who dobbed her in. But I had to! What other choice did I have? Let Zac find out so he could dump me and I would be nothing but a whore in his head? I love Zac to pieces, but I also love Cass. Dobbing in Cass was the best way, the only way. I knew her parents would get her out of any major trouble, their cops for crying out loud. I'm not going to tell her what I did because she would hate me, I know Cass well enough for that to happen. I knew that Cass would be ok, but if I told Zac...Well. You know how that would go. Lets just hope that she thinks the cops saw her on a security camera or something. Oh great now I was planning on lying to my bestfriend as well. My life is so screwed up.
I stuffed my purse into my locker and slammed it closed in frustration. I had done so many bad things these past few days, I don't think anyone could possibly have as much bad luck as I do.
"Dakotah!" I heard Cass shout from behind me. Oh no, now I have to face her. I need more time. I pretened not to hear her and began fast walking down the corridoor, even though everyone in the corridoor heard her.
"Dakotah did you do it?" She shouted. I froze in my tracks. She can't be talking about the necklace thing, she doesn't know I told myself as panic seeped through my bones. Turning around slowly I decided to face her now.
"Do what?" I asked. My voice came out calm and even, although inside I was shaking like a mad woman. She walked down the corridoor, her footsteps echoing down the hall. Everyone was quite with their eyes glued to the scene infront of them.
"Did you do this?" She asked worridly as she handed me a blue note. My eyebrows furrowed as I read exactly what was written. "A" told on me. I handed her back the note and tried to keep a straight face.
"I don't know what this is about" I lied through my teeth. Guilt was surging throughout my body and I felt like any minute I would explode.
"Liar" She whispered with hurt clear in her tone. Liar? I raised my eyebrows at this sudden accusation.
"Are you lying to me?" Her voice slightly rose with alot more anger behind it.
"N-No" I stuttered trying to seem convincing.
"Bullshit!" She yelled shoving the blue note into my arms. I heard the crowd of people gasp and start whispering to one another.
"You have "Guilty" written all over your face" She shouted even louder than before as she stepped closer.
Everything went in slow motion as I processed what had just happened. I felt a stinging sensation on the side of my face, as I tried to regain my posture. I failed and stumbled a couple of steps into the lockers as the loud gasps of the crowd echoed around me. I turned back around to see Cass with a betrayed look on her face as she stormed off in the direction that she came from. I felt Hayley's arms wrap around my arm as she gently tugged me off the lockers. I saw Taylor running after Cass in a blur.
Cassadee just slapped me.
Like I said before nobody could have as much bad luck as I do.
I felt dizzy and my eye sight was blurry. I could feel the ground getting pulled out from underneath my feet and everything turns black.
Friendship on the rocks much?
