Hiding from the pain (Montgomery De La Cruz/ reader) Part 3
Finally part 3 guys, sorry I didn’t post it sooner.
We headed upstairs and turned on the tv.
Sheri and I changed into some pjs and laid in my bed watching some Pretty Little Liars. It was around 12:20 in the morning when I got a text from Monty.
Montlame De La Cruz text: I’m outside
I got nervous
Sheri: Stop! he’s here?
You could see the lights of his jeep on. I didn’t know if he wanted to come in or if he wanted to talk in his jeep. I told Sheri to stay in my room and I would go and see what he needed. Mind you I’m still buzzed so it was kinda difficult to walk down the stairs. I opened the door to my house and he was standing in the door.
All I could say was hello? Not a what do you want?
Monty: Hey… umm
he tried to find the words to say
I just stared at him and opened the door more and moved my right hand to the living room. He just went to the living room and I closed the door. He sat in the couch and looked at me. I sat on the right side of it.
Monty: Y/n, I miss you
Y/n: Ohh, well umm I’m sorry, but I
Not able to finish my sentence Monty started to talk.
Monty: I need you, I can’t stand seeing you everywhere with everyone. I need you. This hole in my heart that’s been made since we broke up can’t be healed. I sound cheesy, but you know that I’ve been with all those girls because I can’t get over you! I still love you!
I just stared at him. I wasn’t sure what to say. My body wanted to jump to him, but my mind told me no.
Y/n: Monty I just..
Monty sat next to me and caressed my cheek and looked into my eyes. I was still buzz and I thought “hey I won’t remember this anyways my drunk mind does dumb things”
We kissed. We both started to kiss and it was like old times.
flashback: My parents weren’t home this weekend shocker. He decided to come and keep me company and we watched movies and ate popcorn. We were laying in the couch and a popcorn fight happened it escalated to a full on make out session and him sleeping over.
Monty and me just kept making out. It was as if our souls missed each other. It felt like home. He started to leave hickeys in my neck and I did the same. I don’t know how long we were together, but Sheri decided to call my name.
Monty: Ohh Sheri is here?
Giving his signature smirk.
Y/n: Shut up!!
Sheri came downstairs without warning and was standing in the front of the living room smirking.
Sheri: hmm while fake coughing
Y/n: Ohh hey Sheri
Monty and me got up and looked at each other. Blushing and all. Sheri just smirked and looked at me.
Sheri: I’m going upstairs don’t mind me.
While she was smiling she went upstairs.
Monty button up his flannel and headed to the door with me.
Monty: Well this was fun… Right?
I looked at Monty with a smirk and nodding my head.
Y/n: Yes, but no one can know about this
Monty: Can we do this again?
Monty looked at me with his eyes pure and hopeful. I took my right hand to his cheek and leaned up to give him a kiss.
Y/n: As long as, no one knows
Monty: Sheri knows
Y/n: Don’t worry I can keep her quiet
Monty looked so hopeful and headed back to his jeep while looking back to me. I just stared at him till he left not realizing I was smiling. I closed the door and headed to the living room and shouted at Sheri to come downstairs to tell her everything.
Y/n: You saw what Monty and me did, but it felt great
Sheri: Well clearly it did cause you can’t stop smiling
Y/n: Yeah I guess it did, but I can’t get myself hurt again
Just as I finished my sentence there was a buzzing in the living room table. Monty forgot his phone and it was buzzing someone was calling him and Sheri got the phone and looked at who was calling.
My smile left without knowing who was calling him.
Sheri in the other hand was smiling with who the caller was.
Sheri: It’s just Jeff
Y/n: Let me talk to him
Sheri handed me the phone, but before telling me to have a plan onto why you’re answering Monty’s phone and not him.
Jeff: Did you tell her? Did she forgive you? Tell me you’re back with her. You guys love each other and no rumor or random girl should break you up.
I looked at Sheri while confused at what Jeff was saying over the phone.
Y/n: Jeff it’s Y/n what were you saying about a rumor or random girl?
Jeff started to stutter with what he was saying and trying to come up with an answer.
Jeff: Ohh… hey… Y/n… what are you doing answering Monty’s phone?
He sounded like he wanted to laugh, but I could tell Jeff was getting nervous.
Y/n: Jeffery Atkins I know where you live. Tell me what’s going on.
Sheri looked at me worried with my stern voice and using Jeff’s full name.
Jeff: Can I meet you in your house?
Y/n: Yes come over
Sheri just looked at me.
Sheri: Jeff is coming over?
Y/n: Yes apparently there are rumors involved and a girl
I kept my stern voice, but sounding questioning.
Sheri: Well whatever it is we can count on Jeff to tell us the truth
Monty’s phone buzzed and not once, but five times. He kept getting texts from Tiffany. Barf.
Monty where are you?
I miss you!!!
I didn’t mean to get you mad I want you I don’t want to break up
My parents aren’t home and I’m so lonely
I will wear my cheerleading uniform if you come!
I just stared at the texts and looked at Sheri with such disappointment.Sure it wasn’t his fault that Tiffany was texting him, but we just had a nice moment why did she have to text him.
Jeff ranged the doorbell and I headed to the door leaving the phone in the table and Sheri just sat in the couch.
Y/n: Come on in Atkins
Jeff smiled nervously and headed to the living room.
Sheri: Jeff hi, umm I can go if you guys need to talk in private.
Y/n: No I just want to know about these rumors and this girl?
My patience was running low and I was starting to have second thoughts on giving Monty a second chance.
Jeff: Well… How do I put this lightly… Monty didn’t mean to cheat.
I looked at Jeff with a mad face and my arms crossed while him and me were standing in the living room.
Y/n: Spit it out Atkins!
Jeff: Well ok Monty, Zach, Bryce, Marcus, and I went to a party. It was at this random girl’s house from Dalton school. She was friends with Bryce and we decided to since we were bored at Bryce’s. We were playing several games and we all were drinking. Monty decided to go get a drink and I saw a blonde girl follow him to the kitchen. Zach and I decided to go to the kitchen too since we finished our drinks. The girl kept touching Monty’s arm and she dared him to kiss her. Monty told her no and she wouldn’t take it as an answer. She kissed him and Monty just got her off of him and told her I have a girlfriend. Zach and I heard everything we were standing behind the wall. The girl left to her group of friends and bragged that she made out with him. Bryce heard about it and he was the one who spread the rumors and told everyone that Monty was cheating on you. The reason why I’m telling you this now is that I just found out it was Bryce the reason why Zach and me didn’t come clean was because Monty never denied the rumor. He’s felt guilty over this all this time. He thought since this girl kissed him and somehow the whole school found out you wouldn’t believe him.
I was already sitting down in the couch with my mouth opened. I couldn’t believe it. Monty’s been feeling horrible over this the whole time? Bryce? I knew he had a thing for me since Monty and me broke up. He was always walking me to my class and to my car. Always texted me and invited me to his parties always ended up us two together and just talking about life.
I looked at Jeff and with a disappointed face at the fact he or Zach didn’t say anything, but I knew they weren’t to blame. It was Bryce. He was the cause of all of this. I knew what I had to do on Monday.
Jeff: I’m sorry Y/n.
Y/n: Don’t worry I know what to do. I have a plan to get Bryce, but you have to help me and Sheri you too.
Sheri: You go it!
Jeff left and Sheri asked me what the plan was when we went to my room.
Y/n: I am going to go to school on Monday with that white top that helps my boobs look great the tightest black jeans with black heels and leather jacket with my hair curled. I’m going to go into school and lure Bryce to the gym and make him strip… Butt naked and run off with his clothes and make him go after me just in time when the bell rings.
Sheri looked at me with a surprised and smirked face. She nodded.
Sheri: But how do you know he’ll follow you outside the gym? How about the locker room?
Y/n: Good idea
i gave Sheri a smirk and we planned for Monday.
Bryce was going down no one was going to ruined my relationship with Monty. I was in pain over this and so was he.
Ok guys, how do you like this? I’ll try tomorrow to upload part 4 of this series and let me know if you want anything to happen.
1. Hannah 3/10, She was hurting, but sadly pushed away the people that could have helped her.
2. Clay 2/10, Can act irrationally because of his emotions and will do/say dumb stuff, but ultimately has a good heart.
3. Tony 3/10, Extremely patient with lil ole Clay, does come off as a lil bit condescending, but means well.
4. Jessica 5/10, She slapped Hannah and bam, friendship over, but she still kept an eye on her and was generally pleasant towards her.
5. Justin 7/10, LOOK, I’m not excusing what he did, but he DID ultimately realize he was wrong to keep the secret from Jess and cut off Bryce completely. Also, no kid deserves the home life he has.
6. Bryce 10000000000000/10, This lil fucker can rot in hell. He’s the one who started it all and HE NEEDS TO GO DOWN.
7. Alex 6/10, What he did probably didn’t seem like a big deal to him, but it enabled other guys to treat Hannah like an object, not a person. At least he had the decency to feel horrible about it. (also I hope he’s ok).
8. Zach 6/10, He was trying to be nice to Hannah, but she shot him down, and he did not take that well. Like Alex, at least he had the decency to feel bad and I’m glad we get to hear why he didn’t say anything.
9. Tyler 8/10, WHAT THE FUCK. DON’T STALK PEOPLE, IT’S THAT SIMPLE CREEP.
10. Sheri 7/10, Honestly, the only reason it’s so high is because of poor Jeff. Otherwise, she did come clean and tried to make amends and was generally a kind person. I feel like Hannah just couldn’t handle keeping a secret that awful.
11. Courtney 9/10, What she did wasn’t the worst by far, but how she handled everything after was horrendous, just because she wasn’t comfortable in her own skin.
12. Ryan 9/10, Same as Courtney. His crime wasn’t that terrible, but I hate how he never felt bad about it AT ALL and just kept going around like he was so entitled.
13. Marcus 9/10 Same as the above two. These 3 were a series of shitty moments, but the way they handled the aftermath was just disgusting.
14. Skye 3/10, Not on the tapes or even associated with Hannah, but pretty prevalent in Clay’s life. She’s tough and rude, but luckily lets Clay in. Very happy they rekindled their friendship.
15. Jeff -10000000/10, THE SWEETEST HUMAN BEING ON THE ENTIRE GODDAMN SHOW. DID NOT DESERVE WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM. HE JUST WANTED TO HELP HIS NERDY FRIEND LIVE LIFE
Whether you like Hannah or don’t like Hannah,
Whether you think Justin can or cannot be redeemed,
Whether you think Clay took too long or just enough time to listen to the tapes,
There are two things everyone can agree on:
1. Bryce is a walking piece of trash
2. Jeff deserved better
I feel like a fucking idiot because someone just explained to me that Alex doesn’t shoot himself, Tyler shoots him! That’s why Tyler had a gun and that’s why he takes Alex’s picture down from the series of pictures he had hung up. He’s killing them in order.
“I know you tried coming to my rescue, Zach. But we all know that’s not why you’re on this tape. So I’ve got one question before we continue. When you try rescuing someone and discover they can’t be reached, why would you ever throw that back in their face?”
“Suicide is not a opition” “Suicide is not drama” “Bullying is not just a joke” “Rape is not the victim’s fault” “Rumors can ruin a person’s life” “If you love someone you tell them”
This show is not about a boy and a girl who fell in love. This show is about a girl that was ruined, this girl felt so alone, so unloved, that she killed herself. She ended her life, because she thought no one cared.
“Some of you cared, none of you cared enough”
Hannah was not making drama. Yes, she wanted atention. Hannah needed atention, she needed someone to see her, to talk to her, but no one did. At the end, it didn’t even mattered anymore. She was already gone.
Please, don’t romanticize this show. Clay loved Hannah, he feels guilted, but there was so much more to the story. She was bullied, sexualy assaulted, stalked, lefted by all of her “friends”, raped.
This is not normal. This is not drama. This is not okay.
