You're The Stupid One

“Well, you thought wrong.â€? Holly snapped, “Because I did. I told them all. And I feel better.â€?

“You feel better.â€? Trey scoffed. “Thanks to you, the rest of my life will be ruined because you got pissed off about a lunch prank, Holly. Do you not understand what I’m saying to you?!â€?

“You’re the stupid one.â€? She whispered.

“Oh please, don’t sink there. I think I’ll die. That’s completely beside the point!â€?

“Oh I know what the point is, Trey. The point is that everyone needs to know what you did and know that it’s wrong.â€?

“Godammit Holly!â€? he screamed and she jumped. “My life has almost been ruined once! Couldn’t you just spare me this time?!â€?

“No.â€? she whispered. “Your life should have been ruined the first time.â€?

Trey sat on the floor in a heap, his head in his hands. His voice sounded pained as he groaned, “I didn’t kill him. He died in battle, okay? Marc … I didn’t kill him, okay?â€? He was pleading with her now and he looked up into her eyes. “I didn’t kill him.â€?

“Okay.â€? Holly whispered sadly.
