After John left, and Lucy came back, every conclusion was still in my head. This was so addictive! The suspension in my brain wouldn't stop and I needed to figure out the mystery. Was Adam, Lucy, and Steven on the same team? They all seemed suspicious in the same way.

I swore I thought Lucy was crying that night. It sounded weird, like muffled screams because her face was on her pillow. I felt bad for her, but something was telling me this was only about who she was talking to earlier. I've never seen her look so sad and guilty before. I mean I've only known her for what? Two months? But it still hurts to see a friend cry. ...If she is my friend.

"Lucy?" I asked the next morning, as I got out of the bathroom.

"I know," She groaned, "I have to get up for school, no ditching," She whined mutteringly, walking to the bathroom.

She was always so upset when I woke her up. I rather make her go to school than get in trouble like how I almost did at the farm. I wanted to ditch so bad because of how stressed I was. But knowing the consequences, I would back off.

I could see Lucy's eyes clearly as she brisked past. They were swollen red. From the tears last night, her eyes were all puffy and I wondered how long it would be before I knew the mystery that was in my head. It had to be the reason why she was crying. I sighed, walking over to her.

"Lucy, why are your eyes so puffy?" I asked with a sigh.

There was no answer. And my stomach was already growling with hunger as I waited. And yes, I could be very impaitent.

"It's nothing," She quickly replied, getting her make-up remover out of the bathroom for me.

I didn't want to ask. She looked perfectly fine now. I wasn't going to get her mad at me either, she has a big temper. I had a feeling in my gut that it wasn't the right time to ask. Even though I really wanted to know, I had a feeling it wasn't good. But as I remembered John's conversation with me yesterday and how my guts brought me to wrong places, I decided now would be the best time.

It was really stupid of me, but what if there was never a good time and I easily forgot?

"Please don't get mad Ruby," I said in hope. I didn't mean to say Ruby but it just slipped out. And once it did, I quickly regretted it.

But she didn't get mad at me at all for saying that. She winced in disgust instead.

"Ugh," She winced, "Don't call me Ruby,"

I rolled my eyes, continuing, "Why were you crying last night?"

I watched Lucy look down in guilt, pausing. She sighed nervously, I already knew this wasn't going to be good.

"I'm sorry I was crying," Lucy broke down, "I didn't mean to disturb you! You were sleeping, and-"

I thought it was really sweet how she wanted to keep herself quiet from how she thought I was sleeping. But I was awake the whole time.

"I was awake the whole time," I interrupted croakly, repeating my thoughts.

Lucy sighed, turning to look at me. Her face was full of guilt, and she looked so nervous. Were her legs shaking?

"You've been so nice... and..." Lucy ranted on quietly, like she did something terrible.

"Lucy... you can tell me. We're friends... right?"

"Not after this," She concluded, "You'll hate me after this," Her voice was breaking down as she said this. I watched the water fill in her eyes.

Her voice was croaky and more nerve wrecking, but I could hear her clearly.

"You know that threat, I told you about?"

I froze. This was the threat I've been so nervous about. This was the threat of why I promised myself I'd watch Adam the whole party. That plan really failed though. Was she going to tell me what happened? I thought she wanted it to be a secret!

Then it came to me. Adam was ignoring me. Lucy was in guilt. And Steven's words... clearly placed in my mind.

"After tonight, you and Adam won't be together anymore,"

Lucy had always been jealous... All the possible outcomes came to me...

I looked at Lucy with anger. How could she do this? I knew she didn't like me, and I always been trying to become her friend, but why...? Why would she hate me so much?

Lucy paused, watching my reaction. She swallowed hard, and quickly said, "You know what it is, don't you?" Her voice was quiet. She didn't want people to know. I could tell she felt horrible, but nothing could say sorry for what she and Adam did.

I knew the answer to the mystery.

My heart was thumping loudly, I was so nervous. She wanted me to say it, but I couldn't. It was far beyond than what I thought Adam would do. If anything, I would think John would do that. I tried to calm myself by breathing in and out.

This was what high school was all about. Same with middle school, but high school was the real thing. Finding the ones you could, and couldn't trust.

I felt water fill my eyes.

"Adam ... cheated on me, didn't he? ...With you?" My voice broke down asking that. I felt like my heart just shattered. All of the memories of John breaking up with me pouring in too.

Lucy's face fell. It was true.

I could feel my hands shaking, my whole body vibrating... this wasn't real. It couldn't be! How could John leave me heartbroken, and come back for mercy while I was dating a movie star? And how could I be so stupid! Of course Adam would cheat on me, he could get any girl he wanted!

Why couldn't this be like a movie? Where was my happily ever after?

"Anna! I am so, so sorry!"

I couldn't even look at lucy. Watching her apologize was too much. I wanted to stay mad at her forever, and ever. Even though it may be torture...

I was boiling with anger. I blocked out Lucy's words, and all of Adam or John's thoughts. I was heartbroken again and I didn't want to be. With all the crying inside of me... all the anger I needed to release it. If only someone will listen...

Maybe no one told you there is strength in your tears

And so you fight to keep from pouring out

But what if you unlock the gate that keeps your secret soul

Do you think that there's enough you might drown?

If no one will listen, if you decide to speak

If no one's left standing after the bombs explode

If no one wants to look at you, for what you really are

I will be here still

No one can tell you where you alone must go

There's no telling what you find there

And, God, I know the fear that eats away at your bones

It's screaming every step, "Just stay here?

If no one will listen, if you decide to speak

If no one's left standing after the bombs explode

If no one wants to look at you, for what you really are

I will be here still

If you find your fists are raw and red from beating yourself down

If your legs have given out under the weight

If you find you've been settling for a world of gray

So you wouldn't have to face down your own hate

If no one will listen, if you decide to speak

If no one's left standing after the bombs explode

If no one wants to look at you, for what you really are

I will be here still

If no one will listen, if you decide to speak

If no one's left standing after the bombs explode

If no one wants to look at you, for what you really are

I will be here still

I will be here still" I sang as I walked down the hallway.

I didn't care if people heard me sing or not. Some kids were singing here everyday. It was a perfoming arts school, wasn't it?

I finished singing the song, walking around the corner. Two guys my age were standing in the middle of the hall. I was going to walk away to my classroom because now we only had three minutes, but something stopped me. It was John and Adam... talking.

"You hurt her?" John yelled at Adam suddenly, questioning him.

Kids stared at them from all different directions. I felt eyes on me. No one has seen John before and Adam was my boyfriend so wouldn't you get the feeling it was something about me? And I knew it was. Who else would it be about?

"I didn't mean to, ok?" I heard Adam say, lowering his voice, "Lucy got me drunk,"

I could understand that. Everyone had a different reaction to getting drunk. Mine was a headache and hearing problems. Maybe for Adam it was to get... flirty? I guess...

"You could've still choosed," John fired back.

I had to agree with John on this one. Even if his reaction is flirty, he should still have all his thoughts. Cheating on me, and knowing it was wrong, wasn't right. I wanted to give him another chance but I knew I couldn't.

People around me, and John were all waiting for Adam's reply. But he stood there like a helpless idiot, not saying anything.

Why wasn't he saying anything? Didn't he like me? I felt my heart crash again. This time it was worst. The tears were coming even faster.

I knew the next thing wouldn't be good. There was a lot of muttering going on around me, but I didn't cared. I listened. This was my situation, I had to know what was going on. Something told me to go to my class right now, but my feet were glued.

John's face tightened in anger. He took one step forward, pushing Adam off balance. I knew that was a bad idea. Adam told me he took karate for years, but then again, John was really athletic and strong. There was going to be a fight.

My throat tightened as the crowd started making that annoying noise.

"Burrrrrn!' They slurred, all of them in laughter.

Adam quickly threw a punch at John, John ducking immediately. The party must've been practice. And why was John protecting me? He didn't care!

John grabbed Adam's arms just as Adam grabbed John's. Now they were just wrestling. But one of them quickly fell to the ground. I swear I saw blood. This was just wrong! I couldn't watch this anymore.

People were still around me, Adam and John. They had their phones out in fact too already. Some were taking photos, and others were recording videos. My eyes reached to the people in front of me. Someone from the back coming up. Lucy.

We quickly met each other's eyes but I dashed away. There was no way I was talking to her after what she did. She might've made out, kissed or even did 'it' that party night with Adam. But she talked to him yesterday privately too. Who knows what they could've done there. I quickly turned, finally heading to my class. Everyone watching the fight would be late. But not me. I'd be trying to stay strong.

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,"



I entered the dorm after school feeling lost. My headache was back, and I still wasn't recovered from the party. I was upset. How could Adam do that to me? How dare John came back in hopes I'd forgive him! And why would Lucy even tell me everything if she knew I wasn't going to like it.

It might've been telling the truth, beacuse it was the right thing. But what about the other person? If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all.

I needed to talk to mom. I was in the need for comforting. I needed to talk to dad. I was in the need for advice. How come when you need the two people you love most, you're always the farthest away? That's how I feel with my parents, John and Adam.

Adam. That dirty... rotten, lying-


Hey! Author speaking! Did you like chapter 20? ;D

Adam is cheating on Anna obviously lol. Well... he's not cheatING, he only cheated at the party with Lucy.

This is what happened if you're all confused:

Anna and John left.

Adam got mad, because shes hanging out with John.

Lucy tells him to have a drink, and maybe he'll feel better.

Adam has a drink, his flirty affect gets on.

Lucy and Adam kiss.

That's all the details I have for what happened. We'll see if anything else happened ;)

John and Adam had a fight, where blood was involved :p

And Lucy is now regretting her threat that she planned. Would you forgive her?

Would you forgive Adam?



Oh, and just wait to figure out what Candice did at the party.

Another mystery!!! Can you solve it??

Every pic is from chapter 11 to here.
