Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 100
After we finished eating dinner, it was only 8 o’clock
and my curfew wasn’t until 11. I decided that I liked
Diane and Gregory; I see where West gets his sense
of humor from. They also didn’t interrogate me; they
asked casual questions which consisted of my
grades and hobbies. Maybe it’s because I’m just
Jonah’s friend and I’m not his girlfriend. I wish I
could add the word ‘yet’ to the end of that sentence.
Jonah and I went back to his room and I was
preparing to crush his spirit and his soul in the game.
When we got into his room and sat down on the
couch, he turned to look at me. “Can I ask you a
I immediately started thinking about the possible
things he wants to talk about. Maybe West told him!
Maybe Georgia hinted to him and he actually
understood! Maybe he’s going to tell me to leave!
Maintaining a calm demeanor, I replied with a nod.
“Who is Arthur?” he asked me, taking me by
surprise. I stared at him, only capable of blinking. He
shook his head after a moment. “Forget it; it’s not my
place to ask.”
“No, it’s okay,” I replied, shaking my head. “Arthur
was my boyfriend,” I explained as I pressed my back
into the arm rest and lifted my knees to my chest. I
rested my head on my them.
“So he’s your ex-boyfriend?” he questioned, earning
a nod from me. The unasked question sat in the air
for a moment.
“You’re wondering why he’s my ex-boyfriend,” I
stated and Jonah nodded.
“At first, I thought he was a bully. And he moved
away, so I assumed that…Francis tried to take over
but when…Francis started bringing it up and you
kept getting angry- I thought that maybe something
else happened,” he explained, struggling to speak
about Francis. He was still a touchy subject because
it’s the reason that our friendship deteriorated
“Well, Arthur cheated on me,” I clarified. “Actually, he
cheated on me twice: One time with my ex best
friend, and the other time was with my worst
enemy. It turned out that his sudden interest in me
was all a prank and he embarrassed me in front of
the student body by breaking up with me.”
Instead of letting silence take over, I continued: “He
was the head football player, which was amazing
because he was only a sophomore, and he was the
sophomore president. I should’ve suspected that a
guy like him couldn’t like a girl like me but no, I was
on cloud nine. I thought that maybe he might
actually like me but he didn’t. As one of his jobs as
president, he was supposed to do morning
announcements. He would talk about upcoming
events, fundraisers, and other important things
pertaining to the sophomore class.”
I sighed and looked at Jonah who was listening
intently. “One day, instead of announcing the usual
messages, he called me out. Everyone knew who I
was; I was the sophomore class president and head
football player’s girlfriend. He told me that it all was a
joke and that I meant nothing to him. He explained
how he cheated on me, too. Everyone took pity on
me and the football players laughed in my face.”
I rested my head on my knees for a minute, trying
to block out the memories of what they’d say.
“Anyway, he was leaving the state a week and a half
later. I spent the whole weekend coming up with a
plan. He convinced his parents to let him stay for the
biggest football game of the year. A few hours
before the football game, I snuck into the boy’s
locker room and put itching powder in all of their
Jonah winced at the thought of being itchy all over. I
laughed lightly. “Anyway, I snuck out of the locker
room without being seen, or so I thought. Anyway,
I attended the game, which surprised many people.
They constantly apologized for what happened and I
just shrugged it off. When the game started, our
team came onto the field and not even five minutes
into the game, they started itching themselves.”
