I read this like I don't know just five Minuten Vor to Du bigTDIfan!
Justin was really starting to scare me. Obsessive love, Bridgette would probably call it. We both sometimes stayed up for hours into the night talking about how strange the other campers were. We each expected Justin to be the strong, silent type, not an obsessive freak.
He was really strong, I realized. He’d been carrying me for several Minuten now. Where we were going, I had no idea. All I knew was that it was deeper and deeper into this forest.
Mental note: Courtney, never come back here. Unless you’re not alone. Wait – no, not even then.
Justin started to slow down. He finally stopped near a baum and put me down, his arm around me so I couldn’t escape. “Courtney – *puff, puff* - I hope Du realize that - *gasp* - I did that for your own good.” He said.
I smiled at him, but inside I was freaking out. For my own good?! What the hell was he playing at, taking me away from Duncan, then abusing me, and then having the nerve to say it was for my own freaking good? No way. Two can play that game.
I kept smiling. “Thank you, Justin. I owe Du big time.” Then I leaned over and kissed him on the cheek.
He looked stunned. Ha, I am good.
I looked at him, doing my best to sound honest as the Weiter words came out of my mouth. “I mean it. Du run so fast, and you’re so strong. I was a fool to think that Duncan - of all people – was superior to you.”
He smiled. “Well, you, know, that’s what we Models are for. To Zeigen commoners – especially rule-breaking ones – that we are better than them.” He flexed his muscles and I had to admit, he was hot.
Come to your senses, Courtney. No one’s better than Duncan.
Justin kept talking about himself. Good, my plan is working. Hopefully he won’t notice the footsteps. If, of course, the person came back. Which I really needed them to if I had any hope of getting out of here.
I snapped back to reality for a Sekunde to hear Justin rambling about his ‘perfect teeth’ and how ‘delinquents couldn’t afford decent dental care’. I chuckled to myself. What a self-centered loser.
Hold on – what was that? I turned my head slightly to the right. I smiled. I knew it. I knew I heard something familiar.
Footsteps. And growing louder with each passing second.
DID THAT FREAKIN’ SON OF A hündin JUST RUN AWAY WITH COURTNEY?! Oh. My. God. He did. He just picked her up and ran. Damn. I must not have been quiet enough. Wait, I was running. Wow, I’m stupid.\
As soon as he took off a continued running. But when he started slowing down I completely stopped. I wasn’t going to blow it this time. I’d be all nice and quiet, then jump in and take my Princess back. He wasn’t going to get away with this. Not if I could help it.
He stopped near a tree, but when he did he put his arm around Courtney so she couldn’t escape. Then he sagte something. But he was breathing so hard I couldn’t catch a word of it. But I heard Courtney’s response clear as day.
“Thank you, Justin. I owe Du big time.”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, she went and kissed him on the cheek. At first I thought she was going to turn around and hit him in the nose, but she kept on smiling saying that she was a fool to think I was better than Justin. What kinda trust is that? I began walking forward, all intentions of hitting Justin replaced my heaps and heaps of sadness.
I think Courtney heard me, because she stopped and turned around. Justin didn’t hear me, so I decided to make myself known.
“Congratulations.” I said.
Justin turned around. He looked about ready to start running again when I held up my hand in a ‘stop’ gesture. He paused, and Courtney ran to me. I told her to stop, too. She did, with a half puzzled, half hurt expression. This wasn’t going to be easy.
“I guess Du win, man. I saw the whole thing.” I said, looking Justin square in the eyes. He smiled. “Glad you’ve come to your senses, buddy.” And he walked toward Courtney and put his arm around her.
She seemed disgusted. “Duncan – what do Du mean?” she asked.
“I heard Du say Du liked Justin better. I have ears, Courtney; I’m not stupid either. Du even kissed him on the cheek.” I said. This really wasn’t easy. And her hurt expression wasn’t making it any easier.
“What?” She asked. Justin looked at her. “What he’s saying is that you’re mine now, love.” And he kissed her on the cheek.
“EW!” she screamed and jumped away. “Duncan, is that true?” she asked. She seemed close to tears now.
I couldn’t find the words to answer her. I didn’t trust myself to speak. I didn’t know what might come out of my mouth. Would I yell, scream, oder maybe even throw up? I didn’t take that chance. So I just nodded and walked away.
“Duncan? DUNCAN!” Courtney cried. I ignored her. I was so confused. I had – what? 2 hours, 3 hours tops? – With her. She didn’t leave the forest when I did; she just stayed and waited for Justin probably.
I felt sad. I felt hurt. I loved her. And it was obvious now she didn’t Liebe me back. I took a deep breath and let it go as I walked back to camp.
Total Drama Island sucked.
