“You’re a real fucking piece of work, you know that Gavitt.” Sia said. Jackson could hear the pain in her voice and even though he didn't want to admit it, he hated hearing that he'd caused her pain. “Why do you do that? Lie to me, I can see right through your bull shit.” Jackson looked away from Sia. He should have known that she would be able to see straight through him. He said nothing, however, allowing the woman to continue if she wished. As Sia stood, Jack's gaze never left her. “You know I would have been there, but instead of letting me in, you just hid from me. And if your so fucking sorry, you’d have left Cami…not kept fucking her. You never gave a shit about us Jack, ever. So don’t stand her and apologize, when you and I both know, you’re not really sorry. I hope she was worth it Jackie.”

At her words, Jackson quickly felt anger. "Did you ever to stop to think that maybe there was a reason I didn't want to let you in?" He asked, his voice quickly rising. "That I didn't want you seeing me so weak?" He paused, his eyes searching out Sia's. "I'm only with Cami because you left me. I needed someone and she was there." He suddenly moved closer to the young woman so that there was barely any space between them. "Don't you dare say that I never cared about us. You were the only thing that kept me going..kept me from ending everything right then."

He knew that he'd said too much. She would probably start asking questions. He'd hinted at wanting to kill himself and he regretted it. He sighed heavily, moving away from Gypsy slightly. He ran a hand through his hair in frustration. "She will never mean anything to me..never."

Jackson moved forward then, sitting down on the ground. He pulled his knees closer to him, wrapping his arms around them. He rested his chin on his arms, looking out across the woods. He was trying to calm himself. He shouldn't allow himself to get so angry with her. None of this was her fault. It was all on him. Every thing that had happened between them all came down to the choices he'd made. "I am sorry. It doesn't matter if you believe me or not. I know that I hurt you and I can never do anything to make that up to you..there's no point in me trying..besides, you've got Travis now. What's it matter what happened last year?"



Andy pulled out a flask and then took a drink and then offered it to her. Skylar took hold of the flask and then leaned up slightly, taking a quick swig of the strong liquid. She then laid back down, handing the flask back. “Listen, I don’t give a shit what you do. I just know that you could do a whole hell of a lot better than that loser.” Andy then laid down next to her. "He doesn’t have a job, he’s got shitty grades, and he’s a dick. Your better than that Sky.” Her friend said, rolling onto his side and then propping himself up. “Beside, whoever you end up has to show up the lame wash up football star your sister’s going to end up with.”

Skylar was silent for a long moment, simply allowing them to be surrounded by the sounds of those around them. She slowly turned over on her side so that she could look at her friend. Her gaze rested on the young man as she leaned in slightly closer. "I'm not in love with him, silly. I'm just using him." She glanced down, looking at Andy's chest. "But, regardless of's not like there are many guys hanging about just dying to be with me and..I just needed to feel something."

She was being fairly honest with him. She hated sticking around him, being forced to watch as he committed himself to Nathan. She loved him, more than she cared to admit. However, there was no possible way that they would ever be together. She sighed softly. "Of course, if my dad had his way I'd be with the guy that lives next door. He's a thousand times worse than Aaron."

Skylar allowed herself to meet Andy's gaze once again. "I figure that it's more likely that I'll grow into a old lady who has nothing but her pets." She was smiling now, a sign that she knew quite well that the likelihood of her ending up alone was quite slim. However, Skylar had the habit of being down quite often. It had started when her mother had died. She would be completely fine one minute and the next..she would be upset about nothing or everything at the same time. Andy was one of the few people that knew how to see through the lies and walls that she hid behind so often.
