He sighed and assured me, "Kylie, just remember that if you're having a hard time, I'm always there for you."
I smiled weakly. I wasn't ready to tell him about what happened, so I decided to just keep my mouth shut.
A few moments later, I realised that some girls from our school were whispering something about me. They shot me this 'certain looks.'
'Is it because I hugged Austin?' I wondered.
"I think I wanna go home now," I told Austin, as I felt uncomfortable about the girls glaring at me.
"I can walk together with you," he offered.
"It's okay, Austin! I'm not a kid." I said, trying to act as if nothing was wrong.
"Hey, but it's dangerous for a pretty girl like you to walk around at night," he joked, trying to make me feel better.
"Austin bro, come here!" a group of guys called him.
"Wait, I'll be back," Austin said swiftly.
I decided to leave while he was preoccupied with something. I didn't want to depend on him too much.
Besides, I needed some time alone.
The silver light of the moon shone down me. Its pale light brightened the night sky. The moon was surrounded by a million little stars, twinkling in its moonlight. The night sky was so beautiful and calm- it was contrasting from the state of my mind.
Suddenly, the wind began to blow, rustling the leaves.

When I finally managed to jerk it out of the crack, the frail shoe heel got snapped off. It was completely detatched from its sole.
"Damn. This can't be happening now." I muttered.
I ended up walking shoeless, getting draggled in the pouring rain.
When I arrived home, my mom shrieked, "Kylie, what happened to you?"
I took a quick look at myself- I looked as if I had just went through some kind of a natural disaster.
My hair was all over the place, I was shivering in cold, I was barefooted and I was so water-soaked, that the waterdrops were dripping down my clothes.
"I'm tired, mom. Let's talk tomorrow." I gave an excuse.
I sighed. It was such a chaotic day.
I took a warm bath and recalled that moment. That scene of Roxanne kissing Jake remained so vividly in my mind. My eyes felt watery again, as I had this mixed feeling of wretchedness, worthlessness, rage, bewilderness and dejection. I bit my lips.
"I should have known... a guy like Jake wouldn't have liked me." I told myself.
I layed on my bed. I couldn't fall asleep. I felt so lost- To rethink about it, I wasn't sure if I was just assuming things. Roxanne may have done that... unintentonally.
