Everything that was happening made Mason feel like he was a better person already. Charrie knew his true feelings and at that moment, he didnt care what people were thinking about him, or if their relationship was going to work. He just wanted to take her home, snuggle with her on the couch and finish the rest of that pizza and movie. It was all he really wanted today, but everything just turned into a huge mess. He didnt even know if he could last a day without being with Charrie. SHe had become his best friend and his lover. And just the fact that she mentioned him on tv with their whole life story, he just wanted that move to have a happy ending.
As he walked her down the stairs, he passed by the view of her mother and father. He smiled at Mrs. Danny, knowing that she probably approved of this. When he saw the look on her father's face, he shrugged and led her outside. The cameras were flashing, the people just kept asking extreme questions. THey were getting into their faces and Mason was suddenly getting so irritated.
TUrning to face Charrie, he nodded his head "Of course I'd take days off of work to be with you. I work in the lab all day. I could use a break. And any break that involves me being with you for more than just a couple hours makes me happy" he leaned down, holding her hands in his as he entangled their fingers together. He didnt care if the paparazzi was taking all these pictures of them. THey were just in the atmosphere. All Mason was focused on was Charrie and the fact that she was so proud of him. He had thought about doing this sooner, he just needed the encouragement. For someone to tell him that he should step it up and speak his mind.
"Ill be better. I promise. Ill tell you whatever Im feeling and Ill even ask you for favors. I know I've just been taking everything in....I just wanted to see you happy, so I thought I needed to do all of that. But you're right. We both need to be happy" he felt her lips against his in front of the paparazzi and he just grinned as he kissed her back. THe paparazzi was going crazy by now, just shooting their cameras and blabbering words Mason couldnt care to hear.
When she said he was amazing, that was just about the icing on the cake. He loved it when she told him how great he was. He barely received compliments from anyone else. "You're amazing too you know. If you hadnt dumped me, I wouldnt have realized what I was doing wrong" he glanced up to see her father approaching and he just gulped. His grip on her hand was a little tighter. WHen he pulled out his gun, Mason stood his ground. He wasnt afraid. There were cameras and Charrie was at his side. "Mr. Danny I love Charrie. Ill do my best to look out for her. Just please dont shoot. You know what it will do to her" he tried to tell her father.
WHen her father headed back inside, he hurried into his car with Charrie. The questions were really personal and Mason knew all of them were lies. Charrie was only with him. And when she began clearing up all the rumors, he chuckled at the last part and began heading back to their apartment. Mason took a few turns and circles, trying to lead any paparazzi away before reaching their real home. "Im so glad you're back!" he wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed her cheek, wanting to just relax with her for the rest of the day.
She was really happy. He probably had no idea how happy she was to hear him say the things he was saying right now. It bothered her when he just did everything she said. It actually started annoy her more than if he would just reject her. She wanted him to speak up because she didn’t like feeling like a bitch and keep on getting him into trouble while he just did everything he was told. She didn’t like the fact that he said she was coming weather she wanted to or not but she still knew if she truly wanted to break it off completely from him, and moved on, he’d let her be. That’s all she just wanted all this time, for him to do what he wanted to do, speak his thought and take action for once.
“That’s good. I’m done with you giving me everything I want. It was annoying. I’m glad you listened to what I said,” She admitted. She let him hold onto her arm and pull her downstairs. She wasn’t too sure if this new boldness of him was going to get on her nerves later on though. She hoped not. It wouldn’t get on her nerves as much as it did when he just stood there and not do anything about trying to take charge. Her mother was in the living room and peaked through, seeing her and Mason. She probably knew that Mason sneaked in but her dad on the other hand wondered where the hell he came from. Charrie knew he wouldn’t be too happy about this. At least he couldn’t do much with her mother watching over her father.
“I want us to be like we used to be too... Really? You’d actually stop a couple of days in work?” She asked surprised. She loved the idea. She wanted to spend time with him for such a long time but couldn’t. Now that he was saying it, she knew he cared enough to skip work. What shocked her most was that he asked Heath be his bodyguard. She loved the smile on his lips. She loved hearing that he did all of this. And this time, she had a feeling that he wasn’t just doing this for her. She may be the reason he did started to change a little but now he wouldn’t be a push over.
“Yea, it does. You have no idea how happy I am that you’re doing all of this for yourself. It might be easier now...” She assured and gave him a hug. She ordered Mason around at times because he really just didn’t say anything about it. She never did that to Heath, they figured things out together because they felt in the same level. Heath was much better than her but she still felt the same and now she felt Mason shift his position.
“Hey, I just want you to be yourself-just step up a lot of more. You’re not a blunt person, Mase. I am. I just want you to say whatever is on your mind when there’s a problem. When you’re upset, I want you tell me. When you feel alone, or sad I want the whole detail. Because if you don’t tell me this stuff, I’ll never know and it won’t end up well. Also, ask me to do stuff for you too, I’ll do my best as long as it isn’t out of line” She advised. When they stepped outside she didn’t even notice that there were cameras. She’s been surrounded by them for so long they felt as if they were invisible. She looked into his eyes and quickly kissed him on the lips.
“You’re amazing. I’ll do my best to be better too,” She promised. Then she was going to turn her head to go to the car and then saw the cameras. Her smile was starting to fade but she managed to pick it up again. There was no need to give bad publicity and bring down her career into shatters by getting irritated by it.
“Hi, may ask all of you to step away from the property? It’s a little out of line,” She spoke kindly and then all bunch of question were asked. Whose house was this? What had happened between them? Were they really dating? She sighed and then her father came out with a gun in his hand. Then he lowered it staring at the cameras.
“Charrie, you didn’t tell me you were having the camera crew over. Are you doing a biography?” Her father awkwardly asked her and then moved to Mason “Get off my property.” She grabbed Mason’s hand and held his tightly.
“Dad, get rid of the gun. I love him, just accept that. Please. Just at least this once,” She half begged and that wasn’t working so she added something else “There’s bunch of camera’s, you can’t shoot him.” Her dad frowned at her good point. He wouldn’t ruin her. He gave a death glare toward Mason and walked back in the house, shutting the door. She than tugged Mason toward his car, as the people followed.
“How far is your relationship with him? Mason, why do you love her? Does your relationship with her effect your career?”
“Charrie, you were dating Ryan. Why did you cheat on him?”
“A lot say that you’ve been sleeping with a lot of the actors in your film production. Is it true?”
She pretended like she didn’t hear a thing. She was annoyed but she couldn’t let it get to her head. But those two last questions got really on her nerve. She turned her head toward them with the coldest eyes she’s ever gave.
“I never dated Ryan. He was a cocky actor that wanted to use me to gain fame. He’s currently in jail because of his attempt to harm the two of us. I’m only with Mason. If anyone else physically tries to attack us again, we’ll pour acid down their throats,” She sharply spoke and that caught them off guard. Not so innocent when she said that, was she?
“Let’s just go...” She muttered “We need to get out of here. This is why I didn’t want to get you involved in this long ago.”
Mason was doing his best to just bring her out of there. He was going to prove to her that he was independent. He didnt need her to keep protecting him like a child. He was going to state what he wanted and that way, they could both be happy. Not just the other way around. If Charrie still didnt want to be with him, then he would be fine with it as long as she wanted. He however would try and stand up for himself. He was going to make sure that he gave it all he had. To be that better person for her.
"Look, you're coming with me whether you want to or not. Im not just going to sit around and accept the fact that we're over. I'm done letting you have what you want, trying to give you everything since no relationship ever works that way. I just want to be equals Char and I know that this is the only way to do it" he held her arm, walking down through her house, passing by her parents as he headed out the door. Nothing was going to stop him from having Charrie back in his life, not even her father. If he came out here with a Shotgun, Mason would be prepared.
"I know I sound like Heath, but Im not Heath. I will never be Heath, just like you said. From now on, Im going to tell you what I want too. And right now, I just want you back with me Char. I want us to be like we used to be. We need to make time for just the two of us, maybe spend a week out of the country, or a few days at the tree house. Anything to get away from all the paparazzi and work. But dont worry about me. I asked Heath to be my body, we're both okay now. I took care of it. It was scary at first, but I realized that if I apologized first that it didnt make me look weak. It made an adult" he brought out at warm smile, glad that she said he passed the test, but he wasnt doing it for her. He needed to be able to say no to people, otherwise everything wouldnt be that good.
"I dont really know if Im doing it correctly, but just tell me if Im being too extreme. I dont mean to be. But Ill try to be blunt about things" he wrapped his arm around her waist and the minute he walked out the door, they were surrounded by cameras.
She let him enter the room expecting him to be the same and probably just beg her to get back or something. Not this time. No matter how much she wanted to, she wouldn’t let it happen. She didn’t want to get back into a relationship with him when all he ever did is let her do things her own way, always listening, and it sort of made it seem like he didn’t care so much of what she did. She never heard one word that he disliked some things. Sometimes, she just felt like putting something to the extreme, just to see something from him. She never did because she didn’t like falling apart but now she they were. She didn’t expect him to practically state that she wasn’t done. It was her damn decision. He couldn’t just change her mind. She opened her mouth to going back there.
“I already told you, I can’t just go back to you without a good reason. There is no way-“She began and he said no buts. What was up with him? He never acted like this. This was weird. He never ordered her ever before. Why was he ordering her back to the apartment? She refuses to go back when he was being so-oh. She sniffed and just wipes her eyes before smiling at him. That’s what she wanted, just to hear him speak out and stand up for himself. She wanted to hear out his opinion but most of the time just gave her nothing. It was partly her fault because she was so busy and when it came to their career’s they wouldn’t bother each other from it. Sometimes, she wished they could just everything and everybody and go out on vacation or something but that was fiction.
“You really figured it out,” She stated quietly “And yes, your opinion is important to me too.” She was just glad to hear him finally speak out. It was great to feel something from him. Because she really hated when he acted like the weaker one in their relationship. She was forced to treat him like that because he simply couldn’t say no sometimes. It annoyed her. She didn’t like it when people just did as she said because it seemed as if they didn’t have their own thoughts or didn’t care enough to even have a thought. Was this just a onetime thing or was Mase really going to keep going with this attitude? She wasn’t too sure if it was going to drive her insane. He got her arm and just stared hardly on his grip.
“Mase, you’re starting to sound a little bit like He-“ She began and then it just hit her. He did not talk with heath. He wouldn’t have figured things out so easily if he didn’t talk to Heath. There was just no way. She knew Mase was a genius but not a genius of what made her to do things. She wondered if Heath told her the fact she’d get incredibly annoyed if she was dragged into things. Yes, it worked out in the end but it still annoyed her at the start. She gave Heath a couple of burses when he dragged her into places. She let Mase lead he rout of her room and outside. She probably looked like hell. Her eye were red, her hair was a mess. Even if Heath talked to him, she didn’t care. If it fixed things up than it didn’t matter. He always tried to fix things up with her and she felt bad that she couldn’t return anything for him.
“You passed the test,” She told him “I’ll go back with you but...you do realize that the paparazzi will still be on with you. And you have to make sure you’re not just putting up with me. I’m sorry for being busy with work... I thought you really didn’t care enough to do much about us or get the guts to do this.” She was just proud of him that he had guts to speak to her like that.
Mason knew what Heath had been talking about. He's seen Charrie dominate him in the relationship for a while now. Whatever she wanted, he would give her, if she had a ton of things to do, he wouldnt bother her at all. He thought that's what would keep the relationship going. He thought she would love him the same as long as he gave her everything she needed. BUt he was miserable. There was no way he could live with always doing everything she wanted. He had to learn to be the top male in this situation. And he was going to tell Charrie everything he felt, what he liked and didnt like. He may have not known her, but she also didnt know him. There was more to him than being some weakling that everyone thought he was. He took action in trying to solve his problems now. Sure he ran away from them in the past, but he had been feeling these problems with Charrie ever since the relationship started. He just never said anything.
Heath had been more than helpful, but Mason decided to just ignore his remarks. The point was he was deciding to help him, even be his body guard. SO if he really did love Charrie this much, it must have been hard on him. Still, Mason was glad he was giving him the chance to help her out. Heath wasnt a bad guy after all. He was just like him. He fell in love with Charrie the more time he spent with her.
As he waited in Charrie's window, it was time to put those thoughts into actions. He's always wanted to take charge in the relationship, sure Charrie probably wouldnt like it, but he didnt like some of the things she did either, they were just going to have to put up with everything. As he waited for her to open her window, he took in a deep breath, trying to think on the spot. "You're not done with this relationship Charrie. Who are you kidding? We've been with each other for so long and even though you think I dont kow you, there's alot I do know. We're going back to my apartment, no buts! Im sorry for letting you get out of control. Im sorry for not telling you how I felt the past few weeks. You're not going to have control over me anymore. My opinion and what I have to say matters just as much as yours" he said determined to bring her back with him.
He wasnt as strong as she was, but he was going to force her out of that house if it was the last thing he did. "Come on, let's go. You're not going to stay here all alone moping. I wont stand to see that you're hurting because I was such a fool" he took hold of her arm and began leading her out of her room. SHe could easily pull away, or punch him down like she used to, but this time Mason wasnt scared. He'd rather get a punch than her leaving him.
“No, Charrie doesn’t come to me for her problems anymore unless it’s a life threatening one. She probably doesn’t mean to make you upset either. She has good intention for a lot of things. It’s probably one of the reasons why she decided to leave, because she can’t stand seeing you upset because of her. Well, now you know that dragging her away or pushing her a bit won’t kill you. I’ve already done it a couple of times to get her stop being over stressed. That’s why you got to take charge; she wants to but is probably waiting for you to say something. If I don’t ask her to do some things, she won’t do it. If I don’t ask her when it’s obvious she wants something, than she thinks I don’t care. I can’t keep telling you her habits and ticks though... You have to figure it on your own,” He stated. He didn’t like giving everything he knew about her and telling Mason. But if that’s what got Charrie not to be upset a lot of the time, then he’d do it. Although, he knew that Charrie had faults in this too, she made it more right by just walking away.
“Yea, you should. She’ll get mad when you don’t let her but then she decides she was wrong after all,” He smiled looking back into his memories. He actually loved her the most when she was being a little stubborn and childlike. She wasn’t really like that anymore but sometimes she wished she’d be like that again and depend on him. He really hoped Mason could figure things out between them because he was tired of hearing the same mistakes being repeated. If this didn’t turn out well, he’ll have to stand his ground. He was surprised about what he asked. It’s been this long since they broke up and he’s already working on fixing things up? Maybe he wasn’t that bad after all.
“I guess I could accept the job,” He smiled a little. Maybe, Charrie’s dad was slightly wrong about Mason.
“Finally you admit it. You’re not as bad as I thought. If you keep continuing like this, I won’t be as annoyed with you being with her,” He shrugged and watched him leave. Well, there went his chance of just letting them fall apart and try to go with Charrie even if there was practically no chance. He always did the right thing.
Charrie started at the ground and traced the wood on her floor. She just didn’t know what to do. She didn’t want to get up. She didn’t want to make herself feel better. She just wanted to mope around for her entire life. She heard tapping on her window but she didn’t want to raise her head. It was probably her imagination. Even if it wasn’t, why would be come here so early? How could he have possibly figured things out so quick? She turned her head and did find him there. She got up and opened the window and frowned when he said he was sorry. Sorry for what...? He was just spitting out the word not knowing exactly what he was sorry about. They always met up here in these kinds of times. When they were kids, teenagers trying to ruin each other, college students and now at this age.
“What are you sorry about? You couldn’t possibly figure out a reason why I’d just go back with you or magically figure out how to make yourself equal to me. I have nothing more to say than before... I’m just done. I don’t want you to put with me and be over controlled by me,” She repeated but she didn’t believe it. She wanted to go back right at the second she saw him but that wouldn’t do any good for the both of them.
Mason didnt understand what he was doing. He didnt know why in the world he was asking Heath for help! He knew that Heath was probably laughing right now, feeling so proud that finally Mason was going to him for help. When he saw the smirk on his lips, he knew he was enjoying everything right now. He was begging for his help like some little dog that had no other choice. Well what else could he do? How was he supposed to be stronger if he didnt know how? Heath was the leader of all things. He knew what was the right thing to do and what was wrong. Maybe his advice could help him win back Charrie, after all, she did find him to be amazing. And maybe if he helped him out, he would see that too.
"I know it's probably not what you want to do, but I dont know where else to turn. If Charrie's at home crying, that must mean that I made such a big mistake. I know I make her depressed and make her cry....I dont mean to. That's the last thing I want! She makes me feel the same sometimes, but at least she has you to turn to for reassurance. But I guess it's my fault for not letting her know that I was upset until today. I just was thinking she was always busy, I didnt want to bother her, disturb her form her job or anything. It hadnt crossed my mind to drag her away from it and take her out for once. I thought if she really wanted, she'd do it herself" he shrugged, feeling bad because Heath knew so much about Charrie that he didnt.
It was all very helpful advice and he wanted to give it a shot. "I guess I should stop letting her do what she wants sometimes" he thought back to his stunt in the car. He was confident back then because he was trying to make her miserable. Maybe he needed to do the same thing, but to make her happy with him. "I wont look weak. Ill handle myself and try to take charge. Ill prove it to her I can. THanks Heath. Oh and...Ill be needing a bodyguard to protect me form Charrie's paparazzi. Want the job?" he was more comfortable now. Heath gave him really good advice, and he wanted to take it to hard and try as best he could. He was glad that he spoke with him. He wasnt as bad as he seemed, he really wanted to help him out. Or at least, maybe help out Charrie. BUt still, he was glad he wasnt mean about it.
"You're a really nice guy Heath. Im sorry for all those things I said and did to you. I couldnt see what you did for her besides the bad. My fault" he frowned and patted his shoulder before heading out the door. It was time to go and help Charrie. Mr. Confident was coming her way.
Mason was determined to fix things. He knew a little more about Charrie and he was going to make sure that kept in his mind from now on. She wasnt going to be taking charge of the relationship anymore. He wouldnt let that happen. Instead, he would try and be equal with her.
Getting into his car, he drove all the way to his house. He parked his car and headed through his backyard to Charrie's house once more. WHen he climbed up the garden fence, he made it to her window, seeing her exactly where he found her all those years ago. She looked terrible, crying and looking so exhausted. THis was all his fault? He made her feel this way because he was such a weakling, letting her step all over him without any communication.
He tapped on her window, sitting over the edge as he sighed a little. "Charrie. Can we talk? Im sorry" was all he could say as he waited outside of her window. He always felt so much younger coming here. It reminded him so much of his childhood. Still, it felt good to reminisce about the old days.
Charrie end up stuffing her face with every food that was in the fridge. Suddenly, she became so hungry. This wasn’t good. Eating too much would make her gain weight-and gaining weight meant it would make her weaker. Just one day, won’t kill her. She end up leaving her room door open for her mom to give her food. After that she shut the door again and made sure her dad couldn’t get in. She’d rather stay in here until she felt better-which could be never but it didn’t matter. She remembered the last time she ran back to her parent’s house. That was years ago, the day they went to the tree house. It wasn’t like that though. This time it could be for good. She stopped biting on her sandwich and whined. It couldn’t be for good...
He never liked being in the middle of things. Charrie’s life was already complicated, adding her career with a bunch of boyfriend problems, made it impossible to keep up with. He should help her out this time. A lot of the time she’d handle it herself but it seemed this was going nowhere and he didn’t want her to go back into her old habits. He couldn’t let that happen. There wasn’t a high chance of it but he wasn’t willing to risk it. He saw that Mason seemed to like that he apologized for almost sleeping with her. He knew he had a part in that, but as long as he was going to be childish and whine over it, than he wasn’t willing to apologize. This changed things though, that’s the reason he decided to. To be honest to himself, he didn’t want Mason to win her back. He’d rather have it not be solved between them but what he wanted didn’t matter as much. ‘Heath , can you help me out? ’ He smirked. He couldn’t believe he was asking him to get her back.
“Help the guy win back the girl that I love?” He raised an eyebrow “You made her depressed, you make her cry... Why on earth would I help you?” He didn’t want to but knew he should. There was no chance with Charrie, ever. He accepted that and decided not to make things harder for her. He could see Mason had fault in it but he knew Charrie was a lot to deal with. Most people would be eaten alive by her if they didn’t know how to handle her and not let her take so much control. He couldn’t believe he was doing this.
“You ever thought that she didn’t pay much attention because you never showed that it bothered you? If you don’t show her that it bothers you or even don’t ask her to spend time with you, than she won’t. She’s busy with her life; you got to pull her back away from it at times. Take charge for once. Drag her away from her work, she’ll be upset for a couple of minutes until you take her somewhere fun,” He explained. He’s been with her three years and knew exactly what made the girl tick and how to handle her. If he didn’t handle her, than it would have been a mess. There was a time he babied her and that didn’t end up very well. It wasn’t until he recognized her for being responsible that he treat her equally.
“Fixing everything is hard... Normally when I’m trying to get her back, talk to her or get her to do something. I just break into her room and bluntly tell her and bring her along with me. She tried to fight me, injure me but in the end she ends up laughing, smiling or doing what she should do. You have the advantage there, she wouldn’t hurt you but would still do that to me. So, just going to her house and being blunt pretty much works. Or even attempt to drag her somewhere you want. She probably wants you to take charge. She told me bunch of stuff you did. When you tied her up in the car you were pretty damn confident back then and did what you want. She likes it when people fight for what they want-just don’t go too far,” He went on. All of this for Charrie, to only make him feel worse that she was going to go back with him. He was afraid Mason would act the same way as he used to.
“And some advice... Don’t always give her what she always wants. She’s a bit of a spoiled brat, if you spoil her she’s going to keep doing it. You should actually listen to her and compromise. If she makes a mistake, don’t just put up with it. Try to fix it with her. You have to be confident about yourself and the relationship. Don’t say ‘I don’t deserve you’ or don’t make her think she deserve you. Giving doubt about your relationship doesn’t help. You both make mistakes, so you both deserve each other. Oh and when you think your weak, you become weak. I know Charrie doesn't seem like she does much but if you asked her to help you out, work than she well. I actually convinced her to cook. It didn't end up well but she tried. And one last thing, stop letting her handling your problems or protect you. You’re the same age as her. The media knows now, means you should figure a way to deal with it without embarrassing her. Her problems are your problems and it goes the way around. If you she feels like you can’t handle it, she’ll jump to help you and protect you and she’ll baby you again. Take care of your own issues most of them. Let her help now and then but don’t let her handle everything,” He said speaking from everything he’s been through with her. Mason really didn’t know much about her. Her really didn’t get why she’d be with him. He remembered her and Russia how depressed she was but at those moments she was so happy to have him around. When it was just the two of them.
“That’s all... The rest is up to you. Charrie would always tell me of your jealousy. I really don’t understand why. You’re the one she love’s not me. She loves you even if you’re a messed up guy that happens to have a brain for chemistry. At least now I can respect you more for coming here. I won’t hate you as much. Just make sure that you love her right,” He ended. There, he did it and this was probably the last chance, even if it was small to get back to her. He didn’t want her miserable. Hopefully, this was the right choice.
Mason knew that it was time to grow up, time to face the fact that no matter how hard it was going to be, he had to suit up and be the adult he needed to be for Charrie. He hated how all of the mistakes seemed to be happening to him. IT felt like no matter what he did, he was never good enough for Charrie, like everything that ever happened affected his lifestyle now. He always depended on her for protection, he always just ran away form anything that hurt him. He really was a weakling and for the first time, throwing that acid on Ryan's face, made him realize that he could handle things on his own. If he just thought he was brave, maybe he could be.
He had to change if Charrie was ever going to take him back. He needed to be that confident and strong guy that she wanted him to be. When being approached with people, he needed to make sure he didnt run away anymore. And just like now, he was going to prove it to himself that he could handle everything. He could win her back. Mason knew for a fact that he loved Charrie. Even if he couldnt explain it at all. What he felt with her was unlike anything he's ever felt before and he loved that feeling. He wanted to feel it with her again.
As he approached Heath, he didnt have time for games or for jokes. He said what he needed to say and he hoped he accepted it. When Heath spoke about being a grown up, he simply rolled his eyes and nodded his head "Yes. I dont really need a lecture, I just want to do what I can to win Charrie back. I cant just let it end this way, we're both just going to go back to our hold habits. The one we tried to stop" he tried to tell Heath, but when he received an apology, he lifted a small smile. WHo knew that really made him feel so much better. The fact that he was sorry about it and that he was unprofessional made him glad to know that maybe Heath wasnt such a bad guy.
"I know it wont fix everything. But I need to win her back. I dont care if you're threatening me or not. Ill do whatever it takes. If she wants me to be stronger mentally I will be. I just need some time and practice....You cant stop me. Ill measure up to her I promise!" he looked up at Heath, knowing that when he promised something he meant it completely. "Heath, can you help me out? I dont want Charrie to just be sitting at home crying. She doesnt deserve that, no matter how busy she was. I know she wasnt paying that much attention to our relationship lately....I want to fix everything" he looked up to him with pleading eyes. Anything to be strong mentally. He wouldnt run away anymore. He just couldnt. He had to face everything and facing Heath was one accomplishment.
She sat against the wall and stared emotionlessly across from her. She cried so much she felt sick. She didn’t bother to eat. She didn’t have the appetite. She didn’t know how long it was going to be before she could get back up. To be honest, Charrie wasn’t even sure if she could get up back up. If it was up to her, she’d just stay in her room until she grew old. It was the only thing that stood the same after all those years. It was the same shape, same paint and same bed. It was like going back into time of the many things that happened that she wished she go back to. Just like when she was in that coma wanting go back to the past. But, she couldn’t go back to the past. It was impossible. The only way was to move on. But she didn’t even want to do that.
When did everything turn so wrong? It started a long time ago. She didn’t know how long. Was it even ever right? Mason was always running away from his problem, always acting weaker, as a victim and she put him through much. But she just had enough looking after him. She did look after him like a little kid. She shouldn’t have done that. Then she would sometimes tell him to do things but that wasn’t a relationship that was just ordering... He did have some growing up to do. It was wrong for her to look after him like this and put him through so much. Every mistake she made, he’d be inflicted in a bad way. For all she knew, he might not even bother to do anything about it until days later. She knew she had to grow up and suck it up that he was friends with the girl that ruined her life so many times she lost count. She’d never want to see her, or face her because if she did. She’d lose her mind.
He was mostly off into his own world until Mason come walking in and that raised his curiosity. Something interesting must have happened if Mason came down here. He hoped that he wouldn’t start a childish fight over jealousy or start swearing like he was still back in high school. As much as he didn’t like it, he had to handle it quickly and not let anything start between them. He was caught off guard when he heard the word ‘I’m sorry. ’ That, he did not expect. What do you know, the kid learned. Although, it was still suspicious. What made him suddenly say that?
“What do you know, you’ve actually grown up, Mason,” He smiled. “I’m guessing something must have happened to realize how childish you were being.” What in on earth happened to make him apologize? He listened and couldn’t believe Charrie dumped him. She finally had the guts to dump him like she should have long ago. He never tried to push her but he saw where there relationship was leading. He knew that dumping Mason would probably give him a wakeup call. But if she dumped him that must have meant...
“She’s in her room crying, isn’t she? Don’t worry about it. It was my job. But I was out of line almost sleeping with her. I’m sorry for that. That was unprofessional. What did you do to convince herself to break up? There must have been something to trigger it... Apologizing to me is a big step up but it won’t fix everything up. You’ve got to show her that you’re not weak or else she won’t ever take you back. She’s a strong girl, Mason if you’re not as strong as her mentally-not physically, she’ll just take charge again and feel responsible for every decision and treat you like your some child. If you can’t measure up to her, I won’t let you go back to her either way. Sorry, if it sounds a little threatening but it’s just what’s best for her if you can’t handle her. I’ll try to call her now.” He went on. Then he pulled up his phone to dial up Charrie but got no respond. She probably turned the cell-phone off or was too upset to notice it.
Mason knew that it was for the best. He didnt really know CHarrie and no matter how much he wanted to make her happy, it wasnt helping their relationship because he wasnt happy either. He'd spend all his time trying to do what she wanted, but instead, he was only hurting himself. He didnt want to make up with Heath, he didnt want to stop working with Prim. THe publicity was going to have to go especially since he didnt have any protection anymore. He was screwed at this point if he walked out of the house. The press were still trying to find him to get an interview, what was he supposed to do? Everything was building up inside and he was just about to explode from so much stress.
Charrie was right. THe only reason he loved her was because she was the only girl beside him since they were kids. Their mom's put them through this whole thing just to make them realize that they were meant for each other. But what did that do? It only covered what they truly felt for each other. They didnt really know each other too well. She wanted someone who was as equal as her. He needed to grow up. He needed to just take charge and not let her take over the relationship. If he wanted something, he would tell her no and she would just have to deal with it or leave him, just like what she was doing now. He couldnt dwindle in the past and keep getting angry over Heath. He probably won by now since they were taking a break, but he wasnt going to just standby and watch Charrie leave. He didnt want it to end, no matter how different they were, how immature he was. THe truth was that he really loved Charrie. In a way that no other girl made him feel. A simple hug and kiss could keep him happy for the rest of the day. Mason wanted that in his life and he sure wasnt going to just let it slip away.
WHen he heard the front door close, he knew she left. That was that. They were off. What was he supposed to do? How was he supposed to move on. He didnt want to. Instead, he wiped the tears from his cheek and he decided it was time to stop being such a baby. Getting to his feet, he made his way out the door, rubbing his face to make sure it looked okay. There were a few people holding cameras surrounding him as he walked through the parking lot to his car. "Leave me alone! We're not together!" he hurried into his car and drove his way towards the dojo, he needed to make up with Heath, whether he liked it or not.
As he walked into the building, he looked around, spotting Heath at the front desk. He tried to keep a calm face on, hoping that he could be able to talk to him peacefully. "Heath, I want to talk with you. Look. Im sorry for being such a jerk and such a whiny little brat. YOu didnt deserve any of it. Not after all you've done for Charrie. Im sorry" he took a deep breath, feeling so weak at the moment. He couldnt believe he was the one apologizing when this man nearly slept with Charrie. Still...he had to do something and making up with Heath could at least help him get Charrie back. Even if he still didnt like the man deep down. "Charrie dumped me today and I just wanted to tell you I made a mistake. You saved her in Russia. You protected her when I couldnt. And you did all of it just to make sure she came back home safely. Thanks" he bit on his lip, hoping he'd accept the apology.
She was describing Heath really well but it was because she knew him more than she knew her own boyfriend at the moment. It was partly her fault this was happening. She was so busy with everything and barely had time. This is why her mom didn’t continue her dream because this dream of hers was starting to turn into a nightmare. All she wanted to do is create movies, that’s it and not have it split away from everything else but it did and was there practically no way to go back. They were falling apart. She couldn’t handle falling apart. Then their fighting about Prim and Heath in between. It was just an excuse to start something. Then she listened to his answer and knew from it that she couldn’t just let thing stay the way they were.
“And that’s exactly why... Our moms told us from day one that we’d be with each other and we believed it without even thinking. And now because of them, this happened. Yea... we can’t. Our lives are too different. Is this it? The end?” She mostly pondered to herself. She didn’t want it to end but there was just a time where things did die off. She didn’t believe it. She never would want to. Spending her whole life being with Mason and this...It seemed worse than being dead. She put up a brave front and decided to hide her emotions well. There was no need to make it harder. He thought the same way.
“There you go again. Making me sound like I’m terrible... I don’t want to be around a weakling? You’re not weak. I’m right, you need to grow up but so do I. I want someone who is equal to me. I don’t feel like you’re equal to me a lot of the time and it’s not because of what you do or how strong you are. It’s because you don’t act like my equal. You let me take in charge of the relationship and yea, I like being in charge at times but sometimes I just wish you would. If you really want someone as terrible as me, then I’ll be at my parent’s house. But if you do come, than you better convince me a reason why would I want to. I’m tired of being put up with. I hate feeling that in the order to be with me you have to put up with me and you’re just doing that because you say you love me. I don’t want to feel like I’m an evil bitch by staying with you...” She finished. She kept such a calm expression that it even surprised herself. And then she remembered there was no way she could act calm. It wasn’t a calm expression; it was a hollow empty one. He headed into the room and she just stood there for a moment, taking a breath. She got out of the apartment and went into her car. She was fine up until she made to the front door of her house. Her mom opened the door and smiled and then asked her what’s wrong. She burst out into tears. Her mom let her cry on her and they went up to her room. She ends up blurting everything out to her mom. She hasn’t done that in years. All her mom could do, was comfort her.
“Honey, have you ever thought about starting all over?” Her mom asked.
“Starting what over?” She mumbled.
“With mason, everything-from the start...”
“I told you, Prim and Heath are in the way of it. We won’t just get over that... It’s done. It’s over. It’s really over and... I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life...” She was sobbing. Eventually it hit night and she couldn’t sleep. She cried for the whole night until she couldn’t shed anymore tears. She didn’t get out of her bed in the morning. She didn’t want to. Her mom tried to get her out but she refused to go into meetings or anything. She didn’t even want to call up that she wouldn’t. She just wanted to be left alone. She decided to spend the day there, just letting the sadness take over her. All of those years to end up like this? She didn’t want it to end up like this. It just couldn’t! There had to be some way to fix it. There just had to be but she said she wouldn’t come crawling back. But she wanted to... She locked her room and made sure not a single soul could bother her. Her dad was yelling downstairs asking what the matter with her was and said he’d go kill the person that made her cry. Luckily, he knew nothing until later on the day he figured it out. He wasn’t as joyful as she thought he’d be. He was upset that she was upset. Although, she was pretty sure Mason’s dad was hearing this and probably incredibly happy about it.
Mason couldnt believe where all of this had gone. Everything just went downhill from here. He thought that they were going to be able to fix things just like last time, but boy did all the emotions just pour out. How could she say to just break it off? Of course he didnt want that. NO matter what they were going through, he thought they could always fix it. He just thought that maybe these feelings he was starting to feel again was only because he was feeling so lonely. Of course she wouldnt cheat on him with Heath, but he just wanted her attention so badly. To have her home when she was supposed to be, not at some dojo teaching kids how to fight with Heath. He just felt like he was someone that she came home to nowadays. That was all.
"I know what Prim has done to you. Why do you think I've never asked her over, or to see you at all. I know the two of you would just fight and I know it's all her fault. What am I supposed to do? Tell her to just get out of my life after everything she's done for me? My career will fail....I wont have the help that I need to get my work done..." he sighed, hating the fact that all they did was argue.
"You announced me on tv like I was some weakling! Some guy that you had been with for years. Yes you talked about our past and revealed to the world our problems, but there wasnt much I meant to you besides me being miserable all the time. You said that no matter how miserable you made me I stayed by your side. Oh thanks for all of the love and support. That sure sounds way better than how you described Heath...." he frowned and then heard how he needed to just grow up and move on from all of this. Maybe he did need to grow up a little, but was it wrong to feel so alone in a relationship?
Mason just sat there, feeling like this was all going downhill. He knew she was going to breakup with him any moment and as she asked him why he loved her, he looked into her eyes and he gulped. "I love you because you were always there. You were always there beside me. You were the only girl I kept my eyes on and you kept your eyes on me.....thats why. Im sorry I dont really know you. We havent had the time to spend with each other lately. I havent been feeling anything at all from you really. You come home and we head to bed, barely even talk anymore. I guess those old feelings crept up on me again when you arent there. I felt jealous. I felt miserable. I felt sad. You're just busy it's not your fault. And all this publicity...Im just not used to.....I guess we just have different lives now and we cant hold it together anymore" he kept his eyes on the ground and he could feel it coming.
When she said that she wanted to take a break, he didnt think he could say those words himself. "You're not an evil girlfriend Char. You're doing the right thing. Im the one changing, the one who doesnt know you anymore. You dont want to be around someone who's such a weakling and just cant grow up. Who does things for you with no feelings behind them. I understand. No matter how much I dont want this....I guess it's for the best" he frowned and rubbed his eyes, getting up onto his feet. "Dont bother talking to my father...we dont need to" he headed into his room and he just closed the door behind him, sinking down to the ground, his back sliding down the door. What just happened?
“Cares about you...?” She spoke in disbelieve “Are you so sure? Fine, don’t. And I told you if you don’t want to be miserable from having me around, than just break it off. And how the fuck is it my fault you don’t talk to anyone else!? You can talk to anyone you want! I’m not obsessive! I’m glad the person that used to be my best friend, back stabbed so many fucking times is someone you call your friend. If I faced her right now, she’d still treat me like shit. She never once tried to fix things up with me. I just let it go. I don’t ever remember you defending me either.” She wondered why in the world he loved her. It didn’t make any sense. It was just a word and how they felt but the reason, it was unclear if he really knew why. It seemed that all they could do is fight.
“Because he didn’t just go for it! Yea, he might have done it to keep me happy but that doesn’t matter. It’s not like he’s deeply supposed to care about you. Maybe he wouldn’t hesitate. Because if you were gone than I’d break down and that’s what he usually does, be there. Oh my god! Did I just not fucking announce how great I thought you were on TV? And the other times you wouldn’t have known about how I talked about you because you weren’t there. I made Heath jealous by talking about you. I would non-stop talking about you. Heath isn’t perfect. He’s done a lot of mistakes in his life. He was just man enough to get over them and grow up. Go ahead, be with Prim for all I fucking care! If was obsessive than I would get her fired from your job-and that’s picking whose in your life! I don’t want her there because I can’t trust her! You don’t seem to care the fact that she did so many stuff to me and just pretends like she doesn’t owe it to me after all the stuff I did for her.” That was it. This was going to go nowhere. She didn’t know what to do but if things kept going on like this. It really was just better if it was done for. She took a breath before speaking again. She looked at him with a curious, questioning expression “Why do you say you love me? Do you even know why? Even spending two years with you, you still don’t really know me. What do you think of me? Do you think I’m obsessive, a bitch, some evil girlfriend who makes you always miserable and depressed? You say that I don’t but is that really the truth? When I’m with you, I feel like I’m in your way.” The way things were going he probably thought that’s how she was like.
“If that’s how it is. We should really just...” She fought the emotions swirling up in her “...take a break. I should go home to my parent’s house for awhile... I’m not leaving you but...as long as you think of me like that; I don’t want to be around you. I don’t even know if you really care about me. You do things for me but I just don’t feel it. I can barely come home but it’s not like I don’t want to.” She’d never tell him or say it out loud. But the only time she felt like she was a horrible person these days was around him. She knew she was bad but not that bad. She stopped herself from crying again. Tears wouldn’t solve anything.
Mason shook his head at the thought of her going to see her father still. If his mom wasnt there, she'd be hurt for sure and that's now what he wanted. "Ill go with you if you want me to. But I still dont suggest you going. He is dangerous. Maybe not as dangerous as your father is to me, but still. Im worried something will happen, so Ill go" he sighed at the thought of trying to fix things. He didnt really want to fix his father's problems. They could fix it themselves if they really wanted to. He just wished they would for their kids sake.
Everything he told her was true about Prim. She still tried to make him feel better when Charrie was gone. She tried to say whatever she could to make him happy, to make him feel as happy as he was with Charrie. Sure it didnt work sometimes and she was angry with him for being so depressed over someone like her, but she never left his side. She kept trying, even until now and that was something Mason appreciated. He felt like she worked so hard for him and he felt bad because he couldnt return the favor. Sometimes he felt as if Prim appreciated him more than Charrie did. When they lived together, she made him lunch, and supplied him company. The one thing he couldnt get rid of was the fact that she'd been a friend to him. Something he didnt really have when Charrie was gone for three years.
"She's my friend Charrie. And no matter what you say, nothing is going to change the fact that she's been there when you werent. Just like Heath. All of these amazing things Heath's done for you. Yes I get it. THey mean more to you than everything Prim did, but they mean a lot to me. Everything she's done for me because she cares about me. Since high school. I know you see her differently, but I still appreciate her. She may not be the same as Heath, but Im not going to just stop being her friend because you want me to. That's just making me miserable. Other than you, I barely talk to anyone else. Any other girls. She's a friend so Im defending her too" he felt defeated. Of course he was jealous of Heath. Just the way she spoke about him made everything feel worse. Who would want to fix anything with a guy that was so amazing, who loves your girlfriend and clearly is going to stay in her life longer than he probably would. Just like she stated.
"happy that he wouldnt? Why in the world would that make me happy? He's only doing it to keep you happy since you're with me. Once Im gone, he wouldnt hesitate. Ill make him my body guard just for you, and ill try to fix things. After all he deserves it since he's so amazing. I never heard you once talk about me in that way. Yes Im jealous, but who wouldnt be after hearing all of that! Just like Heath, Prim is staying in my life for as long as I want her to. Im already doing you a favor by talking to that......guy! You cant pick who's in my life if I cant do it to yours" he narrowed his eyes at her. He felt defeated. He tried his hardest to get Heath out of her life, but he couldnt. So instead he tried putting up with him staying and he still couldnt. Charrie was making him even more miserable inside. He just didnt say a thing. She was barely home, she was always with Heath, she was cutting out his close friends. What else was he supposed to do? He loved her, but she expected so much of him that he didnt want to put up with. Now he had to try and fix things with Heath. HE didnt want to, but it seemed like he had no choice since Charrie was dominating the relationship.
