“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.
“If you’re mom is around, then nothing will be fixed,” She stated “Don’t worry. I’ll handle it. If anything goes wrong I’ll just call my mom over from next door. If you want, you can come with.” She knew it was a risky situation but she would take it. Oddly, she thought handling her dad would be much easier for her. Mostly because her dad fought the way she could handle-guns. If there weapons or fighting involved, it was in her area of expertise.
She just scoffed. Prim alike her and Heath? Yea, if the devil became an angel. The girl couldn’t compare to the things she’s has been through with Heath over there. Little went around while she was gone except for Mase being depressed and focusing on his career. She could have lost her mind when she shot those people completely but Heath saved her bunch of times from becoming a complete psychopath. When she got injured he wouldn’t insult her for doing something so reckless, he just helped her out and took so many damage because of her. He scarified so many things for her and what did Prim do? Nothing that any other person that could have done for him... It sounded the exact same stuff Prim would do for others to get close to them. Those little things...
“I’m sorry but did Prim do anything more than that? Helping you out in your career? That’s it?” She smirked “Come on Mase, you got to do better than that defending her. She doesn’t compare. Admit it. After all that she’s done, you’re just going to let it go? You’re always so easy to let things go for her. I let things go for her too many times. She’s had enough chances. If you think I forgot about you dating her in high school. I didn’t. In case you wondered, I cried a lot. It wasn’t until then I started really hating you. No she’s not done as much as Heath has done for me. Because he loved me. He really loved me Mase and you know that. Yet, even if he loved me he didn’t just fuck me. He let it go. He tells me that it’s hard to see me every day knowing that I would never ever split away from you. Don’t tell me he’s the same as her. It’s insulting. And he didn’t exactly rub it in your face; he just told you what happened because I couldn’t. Say if I didn’t love you, and I loved someone else and that person happened to be a drug addict, and you almost went in bed with me. Would you easily apologize for it? And I doubt he’s waiting for it! Prim isn’t anywhere better. Just because you’re jealous doesn’t mean you can try to defend her. Nothing in the world could defend that girl!” She just couldn’t let it go. She couldn’t stand Prim being compared to Heath. She loved Mason but she also cared Heath as family. She’d defend him.
“Well, I don’t think we should have a fight every time we mention them. And what in the world are you talking about!? You can’t handle yourself! I got a bodyguard before, that didn’t make me some little kid. Mase I love you but fix things up with Heath. You shouldn’t be mad at him because he almost did it with me, you should be happy that he wouldn’t. Why am I even bothering? You won’t listen to me or even understand it. Yea, I get Prim helped you out with your career but until somehow in the world she fixes things up with me, I’m don’t want you around her. And whether you like it or not but I still treat Heath as family and he’s going to be stuck with the rest of my life but not in the same way as you. I don’t want you guys to fight like our dad’s are,” She explained. She was really frustrated.
Mason just didnt understand why in the world she wanted to talk to his father. He already knew what the man would say and do. "Get the fuck out you demon child! Or ill Ill skin you to the bones with my hedge clippers!" he shivered at the thought of that happening to her and he shook his head "Please dont go talk to him. Dont give it a try unless my mom is there. Otherwise....he may not kill you, but he will definitely harm you Char. And I dont want that to happen to you. I like it when your hair is on your head" he told her, biting his lip as he shook the image from his mind. He knew CHarrie could handle herself, but it wasnt like she was going to kill his father.
Prim had been one of his closest friends even until now. Yes she ruined their lives in high school, made them separate. Hurt him in college, but he still couldnt have won that nobel prize without her help. He couldnt finish his healing water without her help. She was like his assistant and he could only get things done when he was in the lab and she was beside him. When Charrie wasnt around, she was a really sweet person and a helpful one at that. He guessed it was because they were alone, but call it manipulation or what not, Prim had his back when it came to his job and the workplace. If he ever needed a favor, she wouldnt hesitate. When he decided to head home early, she would stay back and finish up the rest of his work for the day. It was something Charrie didnt see and he didnt think she'd ever see her that way again.
He didnt want to fight with Charrie, but not everything he believed about Heath was true. Just like her thoughts on Prim. "I dont believe you and Heath are that different from me and Prim. I've seen Prim do that to me. SHe's had my back when I was late, when I was at my lowest. She helped fill in my spots at work when I couldnt make it, stayed after hours to finish up my work and clean up when I wanted to come home and meet you here. SHe knows Im dating you and she hasnt tried anything. Sure in high school she was terrible, but maybe she did change. Because what is the point of manipulating me right now? She knows I wont leave you. She's done just as much as Heath has done for you. ANd Heath isnt great. He's just a pile of shit too! All he did was rub everything into my face. He never apologized for what he did. In fact he's proud of it. He knows that's one thing I can never get back anymore. The one thing that caused us so much fighting and we still are. He's just waiting for us to end so he could have you all to himself" he was angry about the way she spoke to him about how Heath was all high and mighty. He was a Monkey and that's all he'll ever be to him.
Mason knew that even with time he would still think of Heath that way. If he could change back what he did to Charrie, maybe he would consider becoming friends. He could never forgive him for what he did to their relationship. And the fact that Charrie just couldnt leave his side. He just wanted to forget about all this. It only made them fight so much more. WHen he started calming himself down, he shook his head. "You're right. I dont want to fight. I told you not to mention him to me. It only makes me more angry even until now. I dont need a body guard. I can handle things on my own. I dont need someone to protect me like Im a little kid" he ran his fingers through his hair irritatedly as he stared at the tv.
She laughed at him thinking her dad was crazy. She knew he was. he really was nuts but she loved him anyways. It was only natural for her dad to bring out a gun from how over protective he was and because she was his little girl. She sighed thinking of how much Mason’s dad hated her. She didn’t know exactly why. She didn’t want Mason to be hated for it either.
“You know what... I’ll talk to your dad. I’ll go tomorrow and talk to him and maybe can change his view of things. I’ll give it a try. He won’t shoot me like my dad would shoot you. So it’s safe,” She smiled. She wanted to fix things up. If they got that fixed up, than it would get rid of one other problem. It’s not like she wanted to have everything her way. She had to make the best decision possible and having a female bodyguard for him and then the media getting into his privacy wouldn’t be good. Mason would get annoyed from it.
She didn’t know how many times she had to remind him that she would mind him spending time with Prim. How could he even think of spending time with her? She screwed everything up between them. That was four years that they’ll never get back because of her. And it wasn’t just that, it was personal things that happened with her and Prim. She could never see the girl in the same light ever. She hated her to the core. She’s never hated a person as much as she hated Prim. She was always trying to stealing the guys she was interested in. Always got them to fall for her and ditch her. Charrie just pretended it didn’t bother her and moved on with her life. That always got Prim mad and always made her try harder. Charrie always thought she’d change back to her old best friend, the one that was innocent, kind, caring and a little bold but still shy at times. Even if Prim were to change back, she would never forgive her. She couldn’t. The thought of her boiled her blood.
“Heath and I, are different then you and Prim. Heath truly protected me and had no intention to get close to me at the start and did not screw up my whole life for years. He listened to me when I said no, respected that I loved you and if I told him to get along with you, he’d try his best. He even tried to bring us back together Mase. Did you ever see that bitch do that? She only tried to keep us apart. And it’s not just about us that she screwed up but she hurt me bad. If you hang out with her like that-I don’t know but trust me, you’ll see me back to the girl I was when I was in war with you. I’m not going to deal with her bull shit again. You let her in once, and she’ll screw you up. Don’t be an idiot; she has a long term plan for getting back at me. Every single guy I liked or close friend I’d make, she’d pull them apart from me or make them want her. I won’t forget that. Don’t ever fucking compare someone as great as Heath like her. She’s a pile of shit. Call her a friend, and watch you take an advantage of her. If I saw her again, I’d destroy her so she has to live in the streets,” She let the rage within her out. She could never let it go. She found it unfair that he would compare Heath to her. Yes, the Heath situation upset him but Heath tried so hard to fix things up.
“I may sound selfish to you but I don’t even give a shit right now. It’s your choice if you want to be friends with her but its only natural that I’ll react. I know I’m trying to get you and Heath to be friends and it probably seems fair for you to boil a pot of friendship with Prim but it isn’t. If she didn’t do those kinds of things that I’d just let it happen but she did. I don’t care if you think she’s changed. She isn’t, she never will. And by the way by the bodyguard thing, if you want a female bodyguard so fucking bad, than go get one yourself. I don’t see why though. You always make me sound like I’m incredibly selfish and yea, I know I am but I’m no more selfish than any other human,” She kept on going and decided to shut her mouth. She really didn’t want another fight to stir up. She could handle him being friends with a prostitute or a super model that was gorgeous, her cousin, just not Prim.
“Forget it. I don’t want to fight. I just don’t want to hear about her again. If it makes me a bitch saying that, then so be it,” She hardly spoke.
Mason knew that trying to impress his father wasnt exactly what a son should do. And his mother would always try to explain it all to his father, but he was just too adamant to learn anything. He was proud of Mason's achievements, it was just that girl he hated and didnt want to be around Mason, otherwise he wouldnt talk to Mason that much unless he left her. But why would he do that? He loved Charrie. "Ya I know you're a daddy's girl and I know you love your dad, but I still think he's crazy. At least my dad doesnt shoot you. He just stands watch when I come home to see if you're with me. But he does have a few things in mind, I just try to tell him I came alone" he shook his head, knowing that it was pretty much impossible to get their dads to stop fighting. Maybe they could just get them fighting with each other and not their children, then maybe they could just forget about everything.
Charrie did have a clear point with the body guards. If he did have a female one, a hot one at at that, who knows. The press might even catch him ogling her, or even just trying to take a peek at her behind. That pervy part of him was still there, he just wouldnt cheat on Charrie. "I guess you're right. It's better if I get a male body guard. I mean the cheating thing is bad, and so is being gay to the public, but whatever you want Char, ill do that one" he really wanted a female body guard because he just thought it would be much better having a hot girl defending him like Charrie. But that was just it, he had Charrie. Mason just really wanted her to feel like how he felt when Heath was around. Then maybe he could be good friends with the body guard like she was with Heath, then she could see why he hated Heath so much.
She was with him everyday, just like she was with Mason. Sometimes she was with him longer and would come home really late. He knew that he trusted her, but sometimes he just felt lonely. And yes he had Prim at work to spend time with, but Charrie didnt even want her to mention Prim. The two would still work together, but that was about it. He couldnt be her friend because of Charrie, only an acquaintance. So Mason thought it to be unfair she had Heath as a close friend, and he couldnt have Prim as one.
"So Heath it is I guess. I mean I do need protection when I go to work. But you're right. Maybe if Heath sees me as a friend then we wouldnt have so many problems. But I doubt that. He'll always have that one thing between us that I cant get rid of" he spoke quietly, hoping she didnt really hear that last part. He was pretty much over the whole sleeping with Heath thing. He just still hated Heath for doing it and he always will. "And then maybe you wouldnt mind if I actually spent some time with Prim. I mean I work with her everyday like you and Heath. It would be nice to call her a friend wouldnt it?" he looked up at her but saw her bringing over the pizza. He grabbed a slice and just sat on the couch watching tv. WHen she fell asleep, he smiled a little and took a bite. If Heath was his bodyguard, maybe things would be fixed.
“Yea, I can tell he’s strict. You shouldn’t have to do things to impress him though. I never had to. Even if I did the worst, he still was great to be around to. My dad doesn’t blame me for dating you or is angry at me. Instead, he’s just angry at you and your dad. I’m daddy’s girl though... I might make it sound better than it really is. I’ve really got to figure a way to stop him from shooting you in sight,” She sighed. It’s been years and even their mother’s wasn’t’ able to stop the hatred between their father’s. Charrie already decided it was impossible for them not to be enemies. She just didn’t want her dad to hate Mase or threaten to kill him in sight. That’s all she wanted from him at this point. She didn’t even know if that was possible either. As long as her mother was in view, her dad wouldn’t bring out a gun. She loved him to death but sometimes he went too far. She heavily sighed hearing him making her sound like a really selfish bitch. In a way she really didn’t want him to have some other girl around when it wasn’t needed it. She was a little selfish that she didn’t want some girl following him around like that and protecting him. That was her job. To protect him, love him and be with him. She got why Mase was so upset with the situation that happened with Heath. She always understood that and always felt bad for it. She wasn’t too sure if she made it up now but she hoped maybe she was close.
“No, what I meant was, if it’s a male it’s easier to pick out that he’s a friend or he is your bodyguard. I doubt they’d go the assumption that you’re gay unless you hold hands. It wouldn’t happen. You won’t be a laughing icon, I promise. I wouldn’t do anything that embarrasses you like that. But if a female bodyguard came by, which is pretty rare actually, it would create more suspicion to who they are. Say if I hung out with Heath in public-they’d think I was dating him not that he was protecting me. They assume everyone I hang out with, I’m dating. It’s no fun, Mase. It’s better not to get the public thinking pointless things. If it were between gay or cheating, yea I would rather have it be cheating but since that assumption is almost to none... Why do you want a female bodyguard anyway?” Shea asked. She hoped Heath and him could fix up their really bad relationship too. She just wanted the two to make up so that she can freely talk to them in the same place without having so much tension.
“It’ll get better. You’re no different than him. You hate him too,” She reminded him “I’m glad you are doing it but you don’t have to. It’s your choice. I just think it’ll be good for the two of you to get along. Heath really respects people who are smart, unselfish and can handle responsibility. He still remembers you as an alcoholic. You hate him because he stood between us once and some other reasons I’m not sure off... You might like each other.” She stared at the movie but her mind was elsewhere. She loved filming but it was the fame she didn’t like. She never liked the fame part of things. She just liked the artistic creative side.
“Why couldn’t I just create movies and not be annoyed or bothered by the media...? It’s no fun being famous,” She sighed. Then the pizza arrived. She got up and decided to pay it herself. She sat right beside Mason again and took some for herself. Normally, she’d just finish off everything they got before but she learned how to share. Somehow, she eventually fell asleep on his shoulder.
