August Again

I don't hate you, I'm just not sure what to think when so much is expected of me. When some people expect me to hate you, then others expect me to talk to you like it's August again. I just dont know.

Chapter 1

August Again

Him: You guys were being pretty mean.
Her: Sorry bout that.
Him: It's not okay.
Her: I know it's not...that's why I'm sorry. That other girl we were with wasn't very open-minded, and I don't agree with everything she said.
Him: I'm sorry about evrything I did. I made a lot of bad decisions.
Her: Yeah, you really did...she doesn't know both sides of the story, though. She hasn't listened to what you have to say, but I've heard from you and everyone else. Plus I've already made some judgments of my own, so I have more to think about than she does; she's made up her mind. But I don't know what to think.
Him: I regret it everyday.
Her: That's understandable. There's a lot to regret.
Him: I know.
Her: I don't hate you, I'm just not sure what to think when so much is expected of me. When some people expect me to hate you, then others expect me to talk to you like it's August again. I just don't know.
Him: Yeah...I wish I could start this year over.
Her: That would be nice. You've sure gotten yourself quite a reputation this year...but we all have.
Him: Yeah, I know. I don't care though...it doesn't matter.
Her: Really, though...it does. You didn't just gain this reputation by default. It's things that you've done that have changed the way people look at you. I'm one of those people. It really does matter.
Him: ya but i still dont care
Her: I remember when the school year started...I didn't know who the hell you were, I knew nothing about you, besides your name and who you were dating. Now...I know so much.
Him: Yeah.
Her: It's just...I don't know anymore. By late August, I thought I was sure who you were. Now, I'm not sure anymore. No one is.
Him: Yeah, I know and I don't care.
Her: Maybe you should consider caring.
Him: Maybe. But I don't.
Her: Well then, I guess the lesson is no one is who you think they are.
Him: No, the lesson is to never trust anyone because they'll always hurt you.
Her: Not always. Maybe the lesson is to never expect. Expecting is how you get hurt.
Him: Yeah.
Her: So...can you honestly look back at everything that's happened in the last few months and you don't care what people think about it?
Him: Yeah.
Her: ...how?
Him: Because...I just can. I don't care at all.
Her: Do you care about what ANYONE thinks? Anyone? There has to be someone whose opinion you care about.
Him: Yeah, like two people.
Her: Who?
Him: I might tell you.
Her: Is it a secret? If it is, don't worry...I don't have anyone to tell anymore. I can't expect people to keep things to themselves, so I don't tell people most things now.
Him: It was my ex.
Her: You have to give her some credit. She's been really strong about all of this. She's not the only one.
Him: I never liked you and you took those compliments the wrong way. If I did like you, you would have seen it in my actions at school, and now I've lost her.
Her: I never said you liked me! So wait, now you're gonna blame it all on me?
Him: No.
Her: I know that part of it is my fault, I trusted the wrong people. I know that. But you are well aware that I liked you at the time, right? That completely effected the way I looked at every conversation I'd ever had with you.

And then he stopped replying.
