Well I mean someone gave me a map but I could still always use a tour from the Pres lady. Nice to meet you. I’m Marcus.
I didn’t even know we had maps to give out. Uh, I mean. I’m probably not the best person to give a tour at the moment. I’m hobbling ‘round a bit on my crutches. Pleasure.
This place is a lot bigger than I thought it would be… I’m going to get lost. I can feel it.
Welcome to Monarch, I’m Violet, Student Body President. You’re not still lost, are ya?
Violet stumbled out of bed and made her way to the shower slowly. She was in pain, as always - but she wouldn’t let anyone know. Rubbing yesterdays make up off her face, she washed her body, and let herself cry a bit in the shower. She felt horribly pathetic, not being able to dance or to move around. Carefully, when she was done, she got herself out of the shower, making sure to stay in the bathroom until her eyes were no longer swollen from crying. The redhead dreaded Blake’s questions - she loved the fact that he cared, but sometimes it was overwhelming for the girl who had pushed back her feelings for forever.
Getting dressed, she woke up Blake softly and made herself some breakfast, waiting for Blake to help escort her. Quietly, she took his arm as they left, making small talk about mindless things. Once they arrived at the center of campus, where she was to meet Aly, she let Blake head to class kissing him softly. While waiting, she pulled out her copy of A Little Princess, and waited for Aly, humming to herself as she read.
Can we talk about something else now?
You c-can’t say it.
He makes me feel happy. Before I met him I was miserable. I jumped from boy to boy in a desperate attempt to get attention. I didn’t have any respect for myself. I loathed myself. No one loved me. No one believed in me. Then Faust did. I can’t just turn my back on him. He makes me a better person.
It seems like you still don’t have respect for yourself if you go back to a cheater. He makes you feel happy? Next time you say that - I encourage you to revisit your feeling you had when you found out he cheated on you. Over. And. Over.
I figured you did.. but it’s okay. It doesn’t make me that sad, I promise.
Yeah.. wait. What? Violet no. You have a boyfriend. You shouldn’t be going to take your clothes off for another guy!
I’ll make sure you fly one day, I promise.
No no no, nothing is going to happen! He’s just going to draw me. I think he’s Jack from the Titanic.
I did that on purpose…can’t you say it?
You don’ know that. I don’t want your sympathy. I just want you to be my friend.
As your friend - I can’t let you go back to him. You’re only setting yourself up to get hurt again. And even if he doesn’t cheat on you, you’re always going to be paranoid that he is going to, and that’s not a way to live or be in a relationship.
What do you want me to say?
That you love me too, Charlieboo.
