Hiya, this story is more of young adult piece of writing. Why? Because I'm a young adult yay!
This is a short story or something... Not to sure yet. Anyways, I've started to write it, I don't know what for. For fun, I suppose. All the same, I want some opinions on it. They don't have to be positive, just keep them constructive please. I moved this from where it was to here because someone told me it was more suited for here, soooo ya.
I don't have a name for it... But it is based on true things and all the names have been changed blah, blah, blah.
Here you are c:
It was two years ago that Clyde and Em started dating. They didn’t last long. However, two years later and Clyde is still pining after her and I, as much as I hate it, am pining after him. The problem is we’re all friends and Em, even with her boyfriend, feels as though she has a monopoly on him and he allows it. Thus, I am left in the background, as I’ve always been in Em’s life. Even as her best friend, I have only ever played an extra, some one that blends into the scene, never complains and can be easily replaced. This was most noticeable when she took up shunning me for two months. It was then that I demoted her from supporting actress to a recurring character in my life’s series.
Em has always had problems; I think that is one of the reasons why Clyde is so enticed by her. He wants to be the person to fix her but he doesn’t see that his time has passed. His time came and went with the rain. His mind has had a bit of a drought since then. It is like every time the storm clouds roll in he pushes them away not wanting different rain to fall on his soil. Therefore, he dries up and lets her hurt him. He has become a faceless plaything that Em can do whatever the hell she wants to do with because she doesn’t care and he wants her to, so he pretends like he doesn’t. Maybe he doesn’t but when I look into his eyes, I see a boy who is dying inside. I’ve always been a caring person, I hate to see people upset about anything, and when that person happens to be the boy I fancy, it hurts me. It bothers me that he spent two hours on a boat, on our prom night, waiting for her to come and see him. Two hours he stood alone until I came along. He said she didn’t care, he was upset, and I, being that caring person, told him, “She just wants to spend time with her boyfriend.”
I knew she didn’t care. At one time, she told me there are only three people she will ever care about and he wasn’t on that list. I sometimes wonder if Em knows what she does to people, how she hurts them, most the time I wonder, if she ever gives two shits about it.
I thought Clyde liked me once, and then he ended up asking out this 10th grader. I said nothing of it except that I didn’t see it lasting. I was right. It was a little bit of rain that tried to pour and ended up drowning all his flowers. She was in the 10th grade and she was already naming THEIR children, she was the embodiment of an overly attached girlfriend. He flirts with me a lot, which sucks because I know it all in fun. He calls me, pretty and beautiful, he runs his fingers up and down my shins when I use him as a leg rest during Precal. This is what the friend zone is and he has thrown down a ladder for me to climb out but is holding it just out of my reach because he is distracted by Em.
I'll add more if people want more but ya.... c:
