Okay so maybe I wasn't being completely truthful before when I said that I had no relationship/dating experience before. I technically have but after it was over all I did was try to forget about it. His name is Parker Reynolds. We 'dated' for a while junior and senior year of high school. I can't even really remember how we ended up going out with each other in the first place. I do remember how nerdy and sweet he was when we first started dating. Then he changed.

We broke up towards the middle of senior year and I didn't think I'd have to see him again after we graduated. I definitely didn't want to see him again after the last night we were together...

So seeing him here, at my college, staring at me with his wide chocolate brown eyes and still adorable dimples, I can't even move. We both stare at each other for what feels like forever before Becca finally interrupts us.

"Ehem, " Becca says snapping her fingers at him. "Who are you? And why are you staring at each other like that?"

"Becca I'm finished!" Anna screeches walking out of the bathroom. Her hair is still dripping wet and she's wearing an extremely bright yellow sun dress. She doesn't seem to notice me or Parker as she strides over towards her closet.

"Hey Anna, " Becca says skeptically looking between Parker and I.

"Can I borrow a pair of your converse?" Anna asks digging through their closet. " Mine are like tiny pieces of shit at this poin-"

In the middle of her sentence she looks up and sees Parkers. I watch as her face goes from confused to tensed up as soon as she sees him.

"Hey, " he says waving awkwardly at us. Miraculously his voice has somehow gotten even deeper since the last time I spoke with him.

"What are you doing here?" Anna immediately asks. She walks up and pushes me behind her, as if she's afraid Parker is going to try something.

"Um..." he shifts nervously from where he's standing. His eyes go from me to Anna to Becca then back to me again.

He's still good looking. Like extremely good looking. It looks like he finally got over that blonde hair phase he was going through when he started getting more popular in high school. I always thought that he was cuter as a brunette.

he thinks he can just pop up at my college, give me a very shitty apology, then just expect everything to be alright even though it very obviously isn't. I swear he is literally the most oblivious people I know and it's so annoying. I watch Parker as he walks away, wanting desperately to throw a rock at his head.

"Soo..." Scott says turning and looking at me again. "You ditched me while I was showering."

"W-what was I supposed to d-do?"

"Well you could've been a good room mate and waited for me, " he says crossing his arms over his chest. "Then again I shouldn't really expect that much from you."

"You s-shouldn't expect anything from me, " I mutter.

"Wait something's different, " Scott says eyeballing me up and down. "What's different about you? There's definitely something...is it...oh! Where are your crutches?! You aren't supposed to be walking!"

"I t-think I'm fine, " I roll my eyes at him before walking back into the room with Becca and Anna. Becca is too busy probing Anna for answers to notice me and Scott slip into the room. I quickly walk past either of them before they have the chance to say anything. I turn the shower up as high as I can and take my clothes off. I climb into the shower and as soon as the water touches my skin I know I'm going to regret having the water so hot later, but for right now that doesn't even matter. As I sit at the bottom of the shower with the scorching hot water burning my skin I finally begin to cry.
