He Cheated On Her With Me

*I'm going to start posting again.. when I can! Thank you all so much for the love, and for sticking by me in the rough times. It really means more than you know.*
So the other night, Matthew decided it would be a good idea to try out some new virtual reality gaming console that he got as a Christmas gift... from himself. {Insert eye roll emoji here.} Needless to say, he ended up smashing through the glass coffee table, and breaking three chairs. THREE!!! He also dislocated his shoulder and got six stitches on his forehead - which I find extremely hilarious. I mean, I didn't laugh in the moment, but it's pretty funny when you look back. Just picture the hulk taking a tumble with the least amount of grace possible. Yup - that's my boyfriend!

We ended up spending the rest on the night in the hospital so they could make sure he didn't have a concussion too. While we were there though, I ran into this girl Erica I went to high school with. Erica hated my existence throughout all of high school. She completely avoided me for a whole thirty seconds before her boyfriend Mike pointed me out and came rushing over to give me a hug. He and I have always been super tight - hence the hatred she has towards me. Plus, I might have had the tiniest crush on him at one point... and mayyyybe he cheated on her with me. {I never said I was proud of my past.}

Mike and I had pretty much all of the same classes throughout high school. We were in all "Academic" classes which is basically the more difficult / advanced program, while Erica, Jenn and Sophia were all in the "Applied" classes. They were close friends too, I actually think Jenn still talks to her. Mine and Mike's last names are similar, so we were always sat next to each other. It's hard not to be attracted to a ridiculously gorgeous man that you spend all 8 hours of the school day with. {Who also lets you cheat off of him when you "forget" to do your homework.} Mike had the perfect balance of good looks and good heart.

Mike and me were always partners when group assignments came up, so we spent A LOT of time together. I would go over to his house, or he would come to mine. Mike confided in me about a lot of stuff too. Family troubles, relationship issues with Erica, keeping good grades so he could stay on the hockey team... the usual high school student's issues. We were just really good friends. We were pretending to study one night and my parents left us home alone. They knew Mike really well by this point and trusted us to be alone together. Rookie mistake. We were in our last year of high school, so we were both non-virginal, which meant we really didn't have to worry about the whole awkwardness of first time jitters.

Mike got up to get a drink and placed a bottle of water in front of me. He could have very easily sat down and passed it, but he didn't. He leaned over me from behind and let his body rest against mine for a way longer than it needed to. He also let his breath linger on my neck, which we had just talked about being one of my major weaknesses. I wish I could say that I pushed him away and reminded him that he had a girlfriend, but I didn't. I was young and horny too! That was the beginning to one of my best school years. We hooked up anywhere we could. His house, my house, his car, the change rooms at the rink, empty classrooms... yea, we were THOSE people.

We hooked up for almost a year before we got caught. I didn't initiate what happened between us, he did, but I took the blame when Erica found out. He really did love her, he was just super horny and I didn't say no. We pretty much lost contact after that. We went to different colleges and even when there were "reunion" type parties, we never seemed to attend the same ones. I'm pretty sure Erica had something to do with that...

"Victoria?!" Mike asked, as he pulled me in for a hug. "How the hell have you been? Where the hell have you been?" He kept his grip on my arms and held me at arms length, analyzing me up and down.

"Hello, Michael." I laughed as he squeezed the air out of my lungs. "Hey." I nodded towards Erica. She plastered a fake smile on her face and nodded back but didn't say anything. I don't blame her for hating me back then... I wouldn't like me either if I was her. But it's been like 10 years now.. She clearly has had work done too. Her boobs were never that big... and neither was her ass. Mike on the other hand, had gotten better looking with age.

"What are you doing here?" Mike asked. He was looking around to see if I was with anyone else.

"Matt .. my boyfriend, he fell." I stumbled through that sentence. "He's in the room down the hall."

They both made the effort to look over my shoulder, not that they could see anything. "I didn't know you were dating anyone." Mike looked directly into my eyes when he asked it.

"Yea, for over a year now." I smiled. "What brings you here?" I asked.

Erica piped up for the first time. "Michael's sister is in labour." She put the emphasis on Michael. She hates that I call him by his full name. "We're just so happy for her." Erica put her hand on Mike's chest, displaying a very large engagement ring.

"Sara?" I asked Mike, ignoring Erica and her attempt at bragging. Mike has two younger sisters, Sara being the only one I've ever met.

"Yea." He smiled. "My baby sister is having a baby... it's crazy." He ran his hand through his hair, and I had a flashback to Grade 10 math. He always had longer, curly hair that he refused to style. It always fell into his eyes, so he would constantly run his hands through it. Not much has changed.

"Aw that's so exciting! Congratulate her for me. And congratulations to you too, Zio!" {Zio means uncle in Italian.}

"Thanks." He smiled. "You should come by and see her... when she's home with the baby. Now is probably not the best time." He laughed. "I'm sure she'd like to see you and catch up."

I could feel Erica's blood pressure starting to spike so I smiled and said "Absolutely!" I'm only a grown up sometimes...

We exchanged phone numbers and said our goodbyes as I walked over to the room Matt was in. He asked what took so long, so I gave him the run down of my little blast from the past.

"Seriously, Tor. Drama follows you everywhere."

"There was no drama! I was very pleasant." I crossed my arms over my chest.


"I'm going to blame your sour ass attitude on the pain you're pretending you're not in."

He narrowed his eyes at me. He wouldn't dare admit that I was right. "So, how bad were you in high school?" His little smirk coming through.

"Oh, Matthew." I put my hand on his leg. "You have no idea."

I Miss This

Hi babes! I miss writing for you guys so much.. I took for granted how much it really helped clear my head and put things into perspective for me! I've been receiving emails with so many well wishes {THANK YOU!!} and some asking for an update so I decided to rock this post out for you all.

First things first - no, Matthew and me did not break up. That seems to be the number one concern y'all have! Yes, we fight once in a while, but that's because we're both equally stubborn and in our feelings. When something tragic happened in our lives, neither one of us really knew how to cope and we took it out on each other. But we're so good now!

Jenn has been dating that guy Nick that she went on a date with. You know.. the one that caused her anxiety attack {LOL} not funny in the moment, but now it kind of is. I'm not sure if I like him yet {which is probably because I still see her and Danny together forever} but I guess only time will tell. He's a nice guy, don't get me wrong, but I dunno... She seems happy so Matt made me promise I will not ruin it for her. {Like I would do something like that...}

Speaking of Danny, him and my brother are still living together. Their little bromance is stronger than ever, even though they're both in love with the same girl. Weird, eh? Anyways, they've both been casually dating these two fucking bimbos. I swear.. it's like men get more stupid after they fall in love. Well, Danny fucked it up so I know his little bimbo is just to pass the time. My bother on the other hand... I've just given up on him.

Sophia and Paul have been doing really well too. They started going to counselling to help cope with the loss of the baby and I've seen such a huge improvement in Soph. She smiles again, she actually gets dressed and goes to work and she makes an effort to join in on social events. Paul is still super cautious with her though. I know it really scared him to see her that way and the fact that he had left her alone so much really took a toll on him. Him and Matt have been bffs lately though... strange, I know. I'm not too sure if they're gonna try and have a rainbow baby anytime soon, but they're still so young so they have lots of time!

Anyways.. that's all I have for you guys right now! I'm going to see if I can start regular posting again after the holidays.... is that something you guys would like? Let a girl know!

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays!!
