Sarah's side of view.

It's the second day of school. I can't pay attention to anything, my notebook is filled with 'I miss you's' and his name. I haven't stopped crying. I made it through the day like this. School ended and I thought it'd be okay to stay after school and hang out with my friends to try and get my mind of things.
"I don't want too do this any longer, I don't want you, theres nothing left to say"

My cellphone went off. I looked to see who was calling. It was Matt.
I swear he's called about 40 times in the last few days. It's not like I don't love him, and don't miss him. But if I keep in contact with him, it's going to be worse. I'm just going to ignore him tell I see him, and when I do, it'll be like a reunion.

"Sarah, arn't you going to answer that?"

"Nah it's just, umm.. it's the wrong number."

"Didn't seem like it."

"It was, drop it?"

"Sure, but what's wrong with you? You don't seem the same."

"Candi, I'm just stressed, you know exams and all."

"Oh, that makes sense, just try to have fun tonight?"

"Yah, sure."

I was going to tell her I promise I will, but how could I, without him? We headed to the movies and I actually had fun, in fact I forgot all about my problems. Well until Nick came over.

"Hey cutie."

"Hey there Nick."

"You are looking fantastic tonight."

"Thanks for noticing?"

I laughed and shrugged it off, but he went on like this for about the whole night. He put his hand on my thigh and rubbed my leg up and down.
That was it.

"NICK! Quit! I'm going!"

"Sarah, come one!"

"No, ugh I hate guys, seriously I quit..everything!"

I grabbed my jacket slipped it on, and slammed the door. I walked home but didn't get far. I was in tears. How could Matt do this too me? He made my life revolve around him and now it's crashing down. Just then he called.

"I don't want too do this any longer, I don't want you, there's nothing left to say"


"Sarah! Finally I've been trying to get ahold of you for the past two days.


"I wanted to tell you i'm sorry and that I care about you."

"I HATE YOU! Ever since i've known you it's been nothing but drama and tears.
Leave me alone!"

"Sarah? What are you talking about?"

"Goodbye Matt!"

I clicked end, and headed on home. That was where I belong.

Matt's side of view -

She hasn't answered my calls for the past few days. I didn't do anything to her.
Maybe her mom found out, I could go to prison. Maybe i'll try to call one more time. Her number is number 1 on my speed dial. I let the phone ring for about 3 minutes and still no answer.

"Matt, don't stress yourself out about her. She's just some girl."

"Some girl Jeff? She's my life!"

"You notice how you say that with everyone your with?"

"JEFF! You wouldn't even begin to understand."

"I'm sorry, do you want to talk?"

"Does it look like it?"

Lately i've been a lot more pissed then normal. Jeff's right though. I do say that to every girl i'm with. But it always felt different with Sarah.
Maybe I should just give up on her? Besides she's only 14 she doesn't even know what love means. It's most likely just a crush. Maybe were not meant to be. Thats it. No more stress, no more being the one whose always pissed off around here.

"Jeff, wait, you know what your right, lets go have fun tonight."

"Are you sure about this Matt?"

"Yeah, there's more fish in the sea right?"

"Alright then lets go have fun."

We went down to the local club and got tipsy. I finally found out what it was like to make out with two girls at the same time, let me tell you it's an experience. Ha! I didn't miss her, not one bit, and hey maybe this whole Eve thing and I would work out. Later that night I was feeling very depressed.

"I can't believe I did that, how could you let me get drunk Jeff?"

"Matt, you know theres no stopping you when you want something."

"I'm calling her."

"That might not be a good idea."

"Well I'm doing it."

I called Sarah. I tried telling her I was sorry and that I care. But it didn't seem like it was enough. and apparently it wasn't. The first thing she did was scream at me. I was taken back. She loved me, I loved her? Why was this thing not working out? I know it's most likely the age difference and maturity level,
but can't we fix that together? I've never felt more for anyone then I had for her. It didn't matter now.
