"Well, I've been going to the gym..." I was confused, it seemed like he was flirting with me.
"Well it's really paying off."
"I've only been once." I gave him a look.
"I was trying to give you an opening? You've always been gorgeous, Gen, I know you like me."
"Oh..." I smiled. "How long have you known?"
"Ages, like, forever." I noticed he was staring at my chest, but I didn't really mind.
"It's prom soon." I hinted, wondering if he was going to ask me.
"It is..." He winked at me, with a cheeky grin, and I did a stupid girly giggle.
"Geneva!" He hissed, pushing me away. "What are you doing?"
"It doesn't matter what you thought." He whispered angrily. "I'm rich. I can't be seen kissing a poor girl, what would everyone say?!"
"What?" I was shocked, hurt and embarrassed.
"Gen, we can be friends, but we can't be any more than that in public no matter how we feel. It's just the way things are." His eyes were darting around the room, seeing if anyone had seen us. "I gotta go." He practically ran out the door before I could question him.
"Stop it!" I hissed, trying to soothe Aria who was wailing now.
"Sorry, just tell me what this anonymous prick did." He corrected himself.
"Apparently if you're poor you're not allowed to date people." Geneva huffed quietly.
"Don't be stupid! Look at me and your mother! We barely have enough for formula and we've been together most of your life!"
"She means that some shallow rich kid told her she had no chance because she lives in a trailer." I guessed. Geneva nodded. I knew which rich kid it would be, she was best friends with his sister, and his other sister had just had a baby with my nephew, so how he could be so picky when they weren't I didn't know. All I did know was that I'd never liked the snobby kid, and now he'd hurt my baby.
"It doesn't matter." Geneva mumbled. "I guess I was wrong about him. I don't even think I like him as a friend anymore." She sniffed, drying her tears with her hands.
"Well the only boy you need is me." Ernesto declared. "How about a date? You, me, and SSX 3000?"
"Aria, shut it and sleep, there's a good girl." He barely even glanced away from his game, but it worked. That really pissed me off, so I put Aria in her crib, threw my coat on, and took my guitar outside.
Speaking of diapers.... That was when my waters broke.
Westly: Soz abt erlier xxx
Westly?? Why the hell was he texting me? Why was he being so confusing?? He ran away from me for being poor a few hours ago, now he's texting me apologies??
I just sent the one letter back. No kisses. That way he knows I've seen and read it, and also that I don't care enough to reply properly. Hah. Whatever.
"Hey hun, what's up?" She answered.
"Boy troubles." I replied cryptically.
"Ooh! Who?" I could hear her beaming down the phone.
"It doesn't matter." I couldn't tell her it was her brother, I wanted advice, not charges for accessory to murder! "But this guy we both know and go to school with, I met up with him today. Basically, long story short, he was flirting loads, so I went to kiss him and he pushed me away and literally ran off. And then just now he's texted me saying sorry."
"Oh... Well, this, like, mystery guy..." She pondered for a minute. "To be honest with you Gen, he, like, sounds like he doesn't know what he wants. Did he, like, give any reason why he left?"
"Not exactly. He kinda hinted it had something to do with social status?"
"Ah. Ok. So he's just, like, a shallow dick then I guess? Like, seriously? Just forget about him. There's, like, tons of hot guys at school, just, like, wait til prom, yeah?"
"Yeah, ok, thanks." I was glad she'd said something like that and not pryed into who he was. "So mums in labour..."
I had serious doubts I could fit another baby in a trailer... But! I rearranged the bedroom and now it looks and feels huge!
Also, soz that all my babies are born on cliffies, it just happens that it always seems like a good place to end. lol.
