annies POV :
I have to admit, the way I acted to asher was rude and immature, but I felt something so strong for him.
it was anger towards him.
we never broke up.
we never called it off.
but it was all my fault.
besides that, my dad, sober for once, brought me to the emergency room, where they said my ankle had been fractured, and they put me in a bulky boot to wear, with crutches along with it.
after that, and how I was bummed out, my dad ended up getting a “ late work call “, which in reality was a way of saying he needs to clear his mind with his addiction, alcohol.
of course, I was going to be bored, so I invited johnny over.
I heard my phone ding, I thought it was johnny or kenzie at first to ask about me, but it was asher. the number was left unknown in my contacts, but I memorized it.
“ hey, it’s asher. I just want to apologize about today, even though you hate me, I still am very sorry. “
I heard a knock at my door, and I shake my head as I slam my phone on the table, hopping on one foot over to open the door.
“ hey. “ I smile to johnny, and he immediately looks down at my ankle.
“ oh you poor thing. “ he frowns, staring at the crutches that were left in the corner.
“ what happened? you were just fine when I saw you in the morning. “ he concerningly asked.
“ ashers what happened. “ I roll my eyes, hopping back to the couch, johnny taking a seat beside me.
“ he did this to you? “ johnny asks, and I could see a flash of anger in his eyes.
“ no, it’s-uh-they were playing football during gym, and he ran into me. “ I shake my head.
“ and he brought me home, because I refused to let him take me to the doctors. I can’t stand him, he even forced me to the nurse. “ I sigh, running my hands through my hair.
“ he’s a jerk, forget about him. “ johnny says, placing his hand on my thigh.
“ it’s so hard to. “ I say, leaning back into johnnys chest.
“ how’s it hard? “ he asks.
“ we’ve known eachother forever. our moms were so close, and we were like best friends. maybe we weren’t meant to date though...” I frown.
“ it’s just me though, it’s all just me. my fault. everything. “ I say, feeling tears but I blink them back.
