Chapter 19
Frozen Hot Chocolates


" '...that's what love is. Bye always, Alabama,'" Mac read to the group and I stared at the piece of paper in his hands.

My mind couldn't really process what Mac had just said, what was written on that little piece of paper, or why there was a sharp pain in my chest.

As I looked around at all the guys in the room, I saw various expressions. Mac was astonished, his eyes wide, mouth agape. Blue was...scared, Blue was scared. And Jude...The look on Jude's face was...horrible.

His face was so, so pale, almost sickly. His orange eyes had lost their light, they were a dull brown, not even the color of smoldering embers. His lips were as pale as his face and his cheeks looked sunken in, bruise-like shadows formed under his eyes and his blond hair didn't shine, just flopped over his forehead. Jude looked heartbroken, as if his best friend had died, as if he had died.

He noticed me staring and turned away towards the wall, leaned his arm against it and lay his head against his forearm as if it were a burden just to hold his head up.

"Suh-so w-w-what does this mean?" Blue stuttered, a muscles fluttering in his jaw.

"She's gone," I said, speaking for the first time. "Bam's gone."

"When'd she write this?" Blue demanded.

"Probably yesterday," Mac murmured. "I saw her come home and then she left again with her bag."

"And you didn't stop her?" Blue screamed, his face turning red, a nerve throbbing in his forehead as he moved towards Mac.

I caught his beefy arm that was flexing dangerously and held him back; Jude didn't move from his position at the wall.

"You told me not even to talk to her!" Mac exclaimed. "Wasn't that part of the plan? To guilt her into giving up this- this thing with Jude?"

"Yeah, but- "

"You guys did what?" Jude turned around slowly, hissing through his teeth, eyes firing into each of our faces.

"We knew that that break-up wasn't real," Mac explained quickly, in a hurry to make sure he didn't get murdered...right away. "Bam still looked at you the same way, you didn't go out with anyone, and you had this obsession with pissing her off thoroughly."

"Well," Jude whispered quietly, hit bottom lips wobbling dangerously, "I hope you guys are fuckin' happy."

Blue and Mac fell silent and I dropped my gaze to the floor as tears flooded Jude's eyes and slipped down his cheeks.

"I hope you guys a fuckin' satisfied, because now Bam's gone and I have no fuckin' clue where the love of my fuckin' life has run away to," Jude seethed. "She's gone, guys, and it's all. Your. Fault. Just because you couldn't let this happen. Why did it even matter to you? It wouldn't have changed anything, we all would've been friends still. But nooo, Jude and Bam can't be happy, because it could endanger all of our friendships. You guys are fuckin' selfish bastard.

"Now, if you don't mind," Jude breathed, his chest heaving, eyes red and puffy, cheeks wet with shed tears, "I'm going to find Bam and this will be the last time you'll ever see my fuckin' face around here."

With that, Jude walked out on all of us.

After a few silent moments, the front door slammed shut and a car peeled out of the driveway.

Meet me at the park.

I read the text message and a little smile slipped onto my lips. This was probably the only thing that could actually make me smile today.

I'd left Mac's an hour ago and was now in the drive-thru at Dunkin Donuts. Frozen hot chocolates. It was our drink; we loved 'em.

After I payed and got the drinks, I left for the park. A few minutes later I drove into the parking lot and got out, the cold beverages in hand. I couldn't wait to see that breath-taking smile I'd get for bringing these. It was the thing I lived for lately, after Blue and Mac came up with the bright idea to shun Bam and Jude.

I spotted the beautiful sight sitting on the bench by the basketball court and a smile lit my face as I started running down the hill, but I tripped on something, probably my invisible third foot that wasn't coordinated at all. The cold chocolate went everywhere, down my shirt, in my hair, on my face, on the ground as I rolled.

Then, someone finally came to my rescue and I looked into deep, chocolate-brown eyes half covered by onyx-black bangs.

"Hey," he smiled.

"Hi," I murmured, my voice caught in my throat, heart hammering in my chest at the sight of him. "Uhm, I brought these...for you?"

I held up the half-empty container to him and he laughed, the sound was so damn sexy that I felt myself get happy down low.

Blushing, I stood up and looked him in the eyes and smiled at him. He was a few inches taller than me, but he was so...hott.

"Thanks, Haydie," he murmured with a little smirk on his soft-looking lips.

My tongue snaked out to wet mine and without hesitating, I leaned in and touched my mouth to his.

Bliss engulfed me and I totally forgot about everything, even Bam and the look that was on Jude's face. Guilt erupted in me suddenly, because maybe this is how Bam and Jude had felt when they were together...And I'd helped ruin it.

"I love you," he whispered and all those horrible feelings were washed away.

"I love you, too," I said back and smiled against his lips, meeting his brown eyes with mine.
