"Holy shit what? Did I scratch that car? Fuck, I’m a terrible driver."
"No!… no, it’s just so crowded here. Let’s go to IHOP. I think it’s like two miles away from here."
"Okay 1) IHOP sucks and 2) What happened?"
Karma just stood there in shock not knowing whether or not she should tell Amy that Liam’s here.
"Okay weirdo, I’m gonna go put our name on the waiting list…" Amy shakes her head and walks towards Denny’s when Karma grabs her wrist causing her to turn around.
"Okay seriously, what the fuck. I’m hungry. What’s going on?" Amy was seriously worried now but also mad.
Amy’s jaw clenched and face went red. She hated hearing that name, she hated anything to do with that stupid fucking boy who messed up everything for her. After a while, she turned back around towards Denny’s and put her name on the waiting list. He already fucked up my friendship with my best friend, he will not fuck up Denny’s for me.
Karma followed her into Denny’s not long after.
"The wait is around 45 minutes. I’m gonna play the claw machine and try to win a unicorn
(because gay. jokes)” Amy heads towards the Claw machine.
"I’m going to talk to Liam, okay?"
"whatever, you do you."
Karma is walking over to Liam’s table. Man he’s cute. Just in sweatpants and a white v-neck. Jesus that bed head hair. Once she got to the table and sat down across from him, he looked surprised at first, then he was frantic.
"What are you doing here?!" He asked.
"I’m here with Amy to feed her, but the wait is like 45 mins and I saw you here so I wanted to say hi. OH MY GOD. YOU’RE HERE. Can me and Amy join you? I mean I know we all aren’t on the best of terms right now, but this could give us a chance to talk and she’s so cranky, she really needs to eat and I mi—" A familiar voice interrupted Karma.
"The bathrooms smell like shit here. oh, hi karma. I didn’t know you were here"
Soleil was wearing Liam’s over sized sweatshirt and some shorts, making it look as if she wasn’t wearing any pants.
"oh my god. she spent the night, didn’t she." Karma’s eyes started to fill with her tears. Liam didn’t answer her and she just got up from the booth and walked away towards the bathroom.
From the claw machine, Amy saw everything unfold. She followed Karma towards the bathroom. Once she goes in, she finds Karma at the sink splashing her face with water.
"He’s a dick. I’m not gonna say ‘I told you so’ but… wait I just did. I didn’t mean that, I just mean he’s an asshole, and you deserve better aka me"
Karma gives her a ‘really?’ look.
"I’m jooookinngg. But also completely serious. about the whole you deserve better thing, not the me thing but i mean i could be serious about the me thing and i’m babbling, do you want to leave?"
Karma didn’t say anything. All she did was hug Amy by the waist and brought her close. She felt Amy tense up, but almost immediately relaxes and wraps her arms around her.
"We can leave, I’m not that cranky now."
"No, it’s okay. He probably left by now… You know he didn’t even try to defend himself or anything. He didn’t say anything. Like he didn’t even care that he slept with her while being with me."
"So were you guys really…together?"
Karma hesitated to answer.
"Don’t do that. Don’t hold back because of me."
"Okay….yeah we were together secretly. I guess up until last night, he wasn’t with anyone else but me."
"Why didn’t you tell me…"
"I don’t know…I’m so sorry Amy, I just….I knew how you felt about him"
"You still could have told me…"
"If I did, would you have told me?"
Amy stayed silent.
"What are you going to do now about Liam?" Amy asked trying to dodge the previous question. Luckily Karma let it go.
"I never want to see him again. God, I can’t believe I’m that replaceable to him. I’m so fucking ordinary."
"You are not. You are anything but ordinary. He’s a douchebag who doesn’t deserve this amazing hippie-named human being who happens to be my best friend." Amy gives Karma a genuine smile which Karma returns.
"Now can we get the hell out of this bathroom, it smells so bad in here. I can’t tell whether you are crying cause of Liam or cause of the smell, jfc" Amy asked. Karma laughed and nodded.
They walked out to the waiting area waiting for their names to be called out. Once it was their turn, the hostess took them to a booth far from Liam’s table. They still don’t know whether or not Liam is still there or not. They ordered their food and just talked about pointless things they always do. Once their food came, they ate off each other’s plate like everything was normal. Just as Amy felt like the last couple of months never happened, she saw Karma’s face drop. She followed Karma’s gaze and saw Liam and Soleil leaving Denny’s. Karma began playing around with her food, pushing it around the plate with her fork.
"Stay here." Amy got up from the booth and headed towards the front of Denny’s leaving Karma alone. After about 5 mins, Amy came back with her hands behind her back.
"What do you have behind your back?" Karma asked skeptically.
"I don’t want you to remember Denny’s as the place where you found out your secret boyfriend cheated on you. I want you to remember Denny’s as the place where I told you that you are beautiful and you deserve better. And by better I mean this unicorn." Amy hands Karma the unicorn she won from the claw machine.
"Amy, you don’t have to do this… please." Amy reaches across the table, places her hand on Karma’s and gave it a little squeeze.
"You know I love you and now I don’t need to hide it. I mean it when I say you deserve better." I want you to believe that you deserve me.
“I don’t want special treatment now that you’re in love with me. Amy, I can’t help but feel like it’s gonna be like I’m using you again.”
"This is my choice. You don’t need to feel like you HAVE to be in love with me. I want to do this. Okay? But anytime you think I gone too far, just tell me I’ll stop. I just want you to know I love you, and I mean it. unlike who-shall-not-be-named, I do."
"END OF DISCUSSION. WE ARE GETTING DESSERT." Amy gives Karma a smile silently telling her that she has lost this conversation.
"You are still paying for breakfast tho. I don’t have my wallet."
Why can’t I love you as much as you love me?
