Thanksgiving

"Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than hurt yourself trying to put it back together." ~Unknown

''Breakfast is ready!'' said my mother, Joanne.

It was around ten in the morning and I was wide awake stretching my legs out from my bed. Cynthia went out for a quick morning run with Collin leaving me behind with Jacob at the house.

My other family members called my mom last night saying they would be here around two from the hotel they are staying in.

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday since I was a little girl. Being surrounded by my family, making jokes, having laughter, dancing, and watching movies all night long.

However, I'm still adjusting my emotions since Jacob is in the same area as me. I am at a phase in my life right now where I'm struggling with loneliness.

And I know I said that it'll be okay, but most of the time, I feel a deep sense of disconnection from the world around me and the people that I share it with.

Bottling up my emotions it makes me lose focus on life and make me lose connection with the world. It saps all my energy and all my will and drains me completely.

And it's the worst feeling I've ever had in my life.

''Morning mom, '' I said, leaning forward to her and plant my lips on her cheek.

''Morning love, got your favorites, French toast with maple syrup and scrambled eggs.''

''Thanks.''

''My pleasure baby, Jay... are you okay baby? You've been quiet lately. I thought Thanksgiving is your favorite holiday?''

''It is, I'm just been drained from midterms it was so hectic trying to finish... you know...''

''Oh, well okay then that's understandable. If you need to talk to me love you can.''

''I know, '' I whispered. Heavy steps were coming down from our direction and it was Jacob with his gym shorts and muscle tank-shirt.

''Morning mom, '' He said.

''Morning honey, I have your breakfast.''

''Okay, Morning Jade, '' he said in his delicate.

I placed my head down and let out a soft annoying sigh. Turning around, I walked towards the living room and went my way upstairs to my room.

''Jade! Jade!'' my mom said dragging my name as I entered my room and closed the door behind me. To my bed, I started to dig into my breakfast and took a sip of my apple juice.

After eating, I slugged my way downstairs clean my plate and rinse off my cup.

Coming to my direction, again, Jacob tries to empathize with me being passive-aggressive to him.

He cleared his throat lightly and opened his mouth saying "Jade... I never wanted this to happen between us. It was never my intention to push you away from me since Halloween..

"

"Ja—"

"—Jacob, say my name one more time and I swear, I'll kick you right in your fucking balls."

He gulped anxiously and finally realizing what he did was wrong. It finally clicked in his mind that he should've not started this petty game in the first place.

I took another sigh and went on to say "Elijah, was helping to hydrate and you thought he roofied me. Why?"

"I... I... don't know..., " he whispered, looking down nervously.

"I know it's been a short period of time between me and Elijah, but, I cared for him since freshman year. And I just think it's so funny how you knew that I had a huge crush on him. You knew this whole time. That's why you never let him talk to me when he was away. You never let me get a chance to see him when he was visiting. And when Elijah was wanting to tell you about us, you flip like a little boy."

He opened his mouth and said "I..."

"— I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear your apology. You took something away from me, one important thing that I needed the most. You took away my happiness. And the only way I'm going to get it back is when I decide if I want to heal my pain from this heartbreak."

He pressed his eyes together and I could see he was about to cry in front me. Jacob finally saw my pain for the first time since we were kids and it actually him emotional. Keyword: for the first time.

"I don't know what the hell you were thinking about me and Elijah and your petty ass attitude with your all-star Lebron James attention, but you... Jacob.. you really got me fucked up."

After unlocking my door, finally, I went into my driver's seat and turn on my car to start. My bravery to Jacob proved me one thing; that I should never let someone take away my happiness because it was never theirs to take.
