"He attacked you with a knife?" Aaron asked. We were sitting in his car, looking out at the ocean. Dakota, Maylena, and Rosalie were on the beach throwing a frisbee.
I nodded. "Yep. He attacked me with a knife."
"How can you say that like it's nothing? You could have been killed." He said.
"I wasn't exactly expecting the knife to be pulled on me." I said rolling my eyes. "You act like I know what's going to happen before it does."
"What's with you lately?" He asked. "You've been acting really strangely."
"I'm fine." I said. "I'm not acting strange."
"Yes you are." He said looking over at me. "You're acting perfectly normal with everyone else, but you're just being....Mira. Seriously. Do you think I can't tell when there's something wrong? I know you too well to know there's something wrong. Will you just tell me what it is?"
"Maybe if you can figure out that there's something wrong, you can figure out what it is." I said looking at him.
Suddenly he phone rang. He answered it. "Megan?"
The way he said her name made me sick. He sounded too happy. He laughed, something that wasn't normal for him. I bit the inside of my lip. I've known him for six years and it was all I could do to make him smile even a bit, muchless laugh, and sometimes I made myself look like an idiot just to have him stare blankly at me.
"Yeah, I'll be at school tomorrow. Speaking of that, where have you been?" Aaron asked smiling. He looked over at me and his smile faltered a bit. I was sitting in the passenger seat, my arms crossed, staring out the window. I sighed.
"Hey, babe? I'll call you back in a few." He said and hung the phone up. "You alright?"
He didn't seriously hang the phone up for me. He looked out the window and motioned for Dakota and them to come on. I knew it. He looked at me strangely before turning the car on as everyone climbed in.
"Mira." I looked back before opening the door to my house.
"Seriously. It kills me seeing you like this. What's wrong?" He asked walking over and standing in front of me.
"Mira. I'm starting to get annoyed." He said.
"Its a guy." I said and truned to walk in. "And if you can't tell who is either I haven't made it obvious enough, or you're just blind."
"Is it me?"
I stopped as my hand lingered on the door knob. I looked back over my shoulder. He was standing down at the end of the steps, looking at me. I sighed and turned back, opening the door and shuting it behind me. I dropped my bag on the couch and walked up to my room. My older sister, Kassidy, opened the door.
"So what's going on between you and Aaron?" She asked sitting next to me on the bed.
"No-" I sighed. "I like him, bu-"
"You like him but he has a girlfriend. You're mad at him and he doesn't realize it, or just realized it, and doesn't know why and you don't
to want to tell him?" She asked.
"How did you know?" I asked.
"Mira, I'm twenty three. I've had my fair share of problems just like that one." She said. "Its difficult."
"I know, but the problem is he doesn't like me like that." I said looking down.
"I don't see why not." She said pushing a strand of light blue hair out of my face. "You're beautiful, smart, funny..."
"I can't even make Aaron crack a smile." I said. "I always make myself look like an idiot in front of him."
"Aaron's always been a strange kid." She laughed and pushed her brown hair off her face. "Come on. You said you wanted to redye your hair? We can talk about this later."
Darling, you'd make a lovely corpse.
