I’d fallen asleep, only to wake after the sun went down. My head throbbed, my knuckles ached, and my mouth tasted like shit. I wished I could say I didn’t remember what had happened. But that would be a lie.
I remembered every nasty word that came out of my mouth.
Every accusation I’d thrown her way.
The look on her face when she left.
The tears that streamed down her face.
I had destroyed the best thing in my life.
Maybe it was a bomb that had been waiting to go off and I just lit the fuse. She needed me too much. Depended on me. I didn’t even know who I was anymore without her.
This was for the best. I couldn’t spend the rest of my life, worrying about how she was going to react to any girl who showed interest in me. There was more to life than that. There was more out there waiting for me. I could still go to Michigan State, maybe not to play football, and it would take me far away from Tori.
I tried to reason with myself, what I had done was a long time in the coming. I didn’t need her. She wasn’t the reason my heart beat. She wasn’t every breath I took. But as hard as I tried, I couldn’t do it.
Regret sat in my chest.
The self-hate tore at my heart.
But what was done… was done.
Tori and Chris’s journey continues… and so does the countdown!
