Our first encounter today, was not even close to be called 'friendly'. Apparently, neither my day or hers has been going notably well. On top of that, we have reached the point where we all started doubting each other for what happened. And of course it had to happen to me... it doesn't matter how many times I tell her, she just won't accept it . I don't even know if they're taking me seriously, because I was alone, and there is no way I could prove I'm innocent .
" For the 9th time Ellie... I don't have your money... " I tell her, sighing. And OH, how she yells! I can barely hear my own thoughts.
She's walking in circles with an ironic grin on her face, her friends won't do anything, but " STAY THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY!!! " as she demanded. She won't let me leave until she get's what she wants. I was, at least, relying on my friends to explain to her that I would never do such thing... but they are nowhere to be seen.
" Hey, Ellie... I think he's telling the truth. " Rachel started. " I know you think he's lying, but he's a cool guy. I don't think he did it. "
"AND HOW THE FUCK DO YOU KNOW THAT? WERE YOU HERE? I KNOW HE TOOK IT, RACHEL! I KNOW THIS FUCKER IS LYING! " Ellie shouted...again.
" Could you at least watch your to- "
" SHUT THE FUCK UP KID! SERIOUSLY, YOU ARE REALLY GETTING IN MY NERVES! " she shouted as I stopped talking.
" Ellie, just sit down for a minute. You don't need to make a scene over twenty bucks. " Rachel told her.
" OH!! EXCUSE ME! I'm not rich like YOU, Rachel!! I was supposed to get my little cousin a birthday present after school with that money!! "
" I know, but it won't magically 'appear' if you keep yelling at him. And, it's not the first time something like this happens, Ellie. I'm constantly warning you about this. "
" Well, guess what? I DON'T FUCKING CARE! "
" Ellie, for the last ti- "
" NO! YOU DON'T EVEN GET TO SAY MY NAME! " she yelled at me.
" Are you seriously gonna pull out that attitude? You checked my pockets AND my bag, right after I told you NOT to do it! You think you're some kind of princess? Is that it? You can just do whatever you want?" I said.
" You know what? MAYBE I'll check your things AGAIN! AND take them home. "
" Alright, Ellie, you're just taking it too far now! " Rachel said.
" I DON'T CARE! " she yelled, reaching to my backpack and started trowing things out.
I grabbed her arm and she stopped.
" You're going to let me go. " she said, firmly.
" Oh, am I? " I tell her, looking at her eyes.
" You are going to let go off... my arm. " she said again on the same tone. Firmly and low.
" Ellie, just drop it, plea- " The sudden sound of a slap echoed around the place, followed by a few gasps... then, the terrific silence. I was now with both of my hands holding the right side of my face. I stood there for a couple seconds as everyone stared in silence.
" Hey... " she said, handing me my bag. I stared at her. She looked concerned now. " I... you know... "
I grabbed my stuff as I picked up everything, then turned to her. " You're a fucking bitch. You know that, right? " I said.
I walked away and headed to the exit. The next thing I see, is Ellie crying, covering her face, trying to hide her nervous breathing as her friends to calm her down.
I was too upset to go back. She got what she wanted.
