"Samantha, get the hell up!" Aubrey shouted after a loud bang behind my door. Her hysteric voice made Mimi bark loudly. The dance was over, my feet were killing me, but Spring Break had just begun and I knew, I wouldn't get to rest.
After I got home from the dance, I had to wait until morning for Aubrey to come home to give her the news that I didn't feel like going to her trip anymore. To my surprise for the first time in my life, Aubrey begged me to do something for her. Trying to find a good excuse not to go, I couldn't tell her that I was at my breaking point.

"And I say we're going! Why can you do this little thing for me? You always get whatever you want, why can you let me have what I want!?" Aubrey shouted hysterically. She was desperate, threatening, but at this point, there was nothing to fear anymore.
"What is it that you want?" I asked tired or arguing, though I already knew what Aubrey wanted, it's what I wanted, what any girl wanted. Cameron. Aubrey stopped in the middle of my room, her eyes turning serious for once. I sat up straight.
"At first, I just wanted to play with Cameron. All...
