Kris here! I’m sure everyone is excited for summer! I know I am, hanging by the pool, beaches, malls…and possibly boys 😉 But besides from that, I hope everyone has an amazing time, now without further ado, here’s what you’ve been waiting for!
Previously on XOXO The Pretty Committee:
“Welcome to Manhattan.” – Massie
“What do we have to do?” – Blair
“Good, come on. Let’s get the flowers.” – Kristen
“Get in a line in front of the elevator.” – Massie
“Blair, check your bouquet.” – Massie
“Hey Kris. I’m sorry, we couldn’t reach Dempsey. His phone was off and he wasn’t at home. But here, we got you these.” – Cam
“What’s wrong Kris?” – Massie
“What’s wrong Kris?” Massie asked worriedly. I couldn’t speak. I just…froze. I stood, mouth slightly open in shock.
I watched as the boy, or let’s just say, my boyfriend, welcome a girl in his arms. Oh, not just any girl, but it just had to be Olivia Ryan herself. He didn’t see me, but I saw everything. How, he reached his strong arm out, taking her hand. The way she giggled as he twirled her around. How he kissed her cheek…I just stood there, not moving while the Pretty Committee watched with me. All in shock.
I felt something warm on my cheek. I unfroze just then, but only enough for my hand to touch my cheek and for my eyes to look down. Tears. I hadn’t even realised I had been crying until I saw how blurry everything looked.
Doubt and denial started rushing through my head, giving me a bit of a headache. Maybe, maybe it isn’t him. Maybe that’s his cousin or someone who just looks like Olivia but is actually…I don’t know, his distant relative? Maybe I just pictured it because I missed him and I am picturing the worst.
I raised my hand to wipe the tears from my eyes so I could see clearer. No. There is no doubt. That was Dempsey and Olivia.
“Are you girls coming?”
Massie turned around to hear Landon in the elevator. Not realising that the others were still here. They didn’t see what we were all looking at.
“Uhh….yeah.” Massie called back. She took hold of my shoulders and gently turned me around to face her. She took a tissue and quickly wiped my face. “Come on Kris, let’s go.”
I let her guide me to the elevator. I turned my head one last time before the elevator door closed, and watched as my love life came tumbling down…
I stared at my salad in front of me, my head down, as I picked at it with my fork. The barely heard the chatter around me as we sat at a long table for twenty. All I could think about was what had happened less than half and hour ago. I recalled every single detail. How he looked, how she looked. How they both looked as they saw each other.
“What’s up with her?” Derrington asked Dylan when he noticed how quiet I had been the entire time.
“Oh uhh…” She quickly looked at me before turning back to him. “Umm, I don’t know if I should -“
“It’s ok, Dyl,” I finally spoke. “Everyone can know, I’m not going to hide this. I’ll get over it.”
Suddenly, I felt hot. I saw how he looked at Olivia, as if I never existed. I felt the anger start to prickle in my entire body. Fury burned my eyes as I suddenly realised what he had actually done to me. He had cheated on me, and he is soooo NOT getting away with this.
“Besides…” I continued, “I’m getting my revenge.”

♥ The next post will be the last of this story line although the next would be somewhat connected to this. I’m sorry that it took so long (OMG almost a year!) to finish just this one story line. I would promise it would get better, if I didn’t have to work on a project all summer! But I’ll try my best!
