Los Angeles, CA | Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills Apartment | Rooftop
Friday, June 10th
I turned around and saw Sierra making out with a guy who looked a lot like Mark Low, who happened to be an A-Lister and in some of my theater classes. “One Dance” by Drake blared from huge speaker.
“Ok, then. Anybody seen Harry?” Darren asked Jasmine, Austin, Tyler, and I as we stood in a circle.
“No, but if you guys see a girl with wavy brown hair, brown eyes, and her names Marina, let me know. I met her today, she’s an transfer student and she’s a sophomore in the fall too.” I said.
“No, I haven’t seen her yet but make sure I get her number.” Harry said as he sneaked up on us and hugged my waist from behind.
I quickly pulled away and saw Darren and Tyler staring at me. Sierra pulled away from Mark and walked over to us.
“Hey Harry, Mark and I want to go somewhere else, bring that chippy blonde and lets go.” Sierra told to Harry.
They had a weird friendship. They were practically each other’s wingmen. They both were the heart breakers and party addicts of the grade. Somehow they understood each other in levels that nobody else did but it was fine because they didn’t show any problems. Harry nodded and he took off with the blonde, Amy, Sierra, and Mark.
“I don’t understand them.” Austin said staring at the door, which they left by.
“Nobody does.” Jasmine said smiling as she looked around at the rooftop full of A-Listers, “you didn’t happen to invite Lily did you? I haven’t seen her since we broke up.”
“No don’t worry.” I reassured Jasmine quickly.
Austin and Tyler went over to the drinks table for some more beers as Darren and Jasmine talked to a redhead A-Lister, Samantha Galen, who was in some of my architecture seminars. I looked around the room and saw Michael dancing with some of his guy friends.
“Hey Claire.” He said smiling to me as I smiled back.
I grabbed him by the wrist and led him to Sierra, Jasmine, and I’s apartment. He had a puzzled look on his face, but I leaned in and starting making out with him, before he pulled away.
“Claire. Sorry, no. Um, we — this isn’t going to work. We are good friends I don’t want to mess that up.” He said giving me a pity look.
“No of course. Somehow the only things in the world I want I can’t have. Because they don’t want me!” I said as I stormed out of my apartment crying. I ran down the hallway and turned to the left. I collapsed on the corner and sighed.
I was never good enough. Not even a guy who was my friend and found me hot and cute. Not even for a one-night stand. Not even Cam wanted me so he had to cheat on me with my best friend. Tyler didn’t want me because he knew I was bad news after wrecking myself cause of Cam.
“Claire?” A soft voice asked as I looked up, mascara tearstains on my cheeks.
“Hey Marina. Glad you could make it.” I sniffling as she sat down next to me.
“I couldn’t find the rooftop and got lost. What happened?” Marina asked as I laid my head on her shoulder.
“Nothing, just someone else who doesn’t want me.” I said as I felt more hot tears ran down my cheek.
“Life can seriously suck sometimes. You just have to embrace the bad parts, so that when it is good, you can count those blessings. I would know, life never was good to me. But you shouldn’t be sad tonight.” Marina said as she hugged me.
She helped me up and I smiled. I had made a new friend tonight. She stood up and grabbed my hand as she lifted me up, and we walked back to my apartment to wash my cheeks. We went to the roof and I put on my best fake smile.
“Hey guys, this is Marina.” I said to my friends as “No Broken Hearts” played in the back.
No broken hearts in the club, more drinks pour it up
Cause we gon get it poppin’ tonight
We only got one life, so let’s go hard till the day we die
