This Story by Stacy Brakebush a now a College student majoring in psychology a is dedicated to the memory of her Grandfather James Smith. There i was a sitting in class concentrating on the Back of Brian s neck. Evil thoughts filled my mind i was secretly waiting for his head to explode. It Dida and i was forced to watch my sex Boyfriend Lau and Chat with every person in the room while he our break up third period became pure torture. While i was still Nii Tsing what i considered to be the world s worst broken heart i was bombarded with the sight of my sex s excessive flirting As if he were proving to me that he was so obviously Over his heartache. During class Brian would gossip loudly about his weekend his latest party and his new car. Maybe Brian was trying to get Back at Ine for breaking off our six month ratio ship. Maybe he thought that if a looked by it would Hurt me ape than i had Hurt him. At the end of the relationship i let Hijii cry on my shoulder but i held a Strong heart As he begged me not to go. Of course he covered his pain very Well at school like our tearful goodbye had never occurred. A immediately after the break up by started dating another girl one who was graduating that Spring As if that were a big feat for a Junior year boy. She took him to prom and a ounces it right beside me in math class. I too had a Date for the prom bit it still Hurt. My Hurt curdled and claimed to anger. It Felt like he was trying to upset me trying to my his Hap winess in my face. Every time i saw Triem together i wanted to scream. It Felt like the pain was going to tear me iii half a or at least forcing me to con Siferte a her in half. I school was coming to an end and i we eagerly waiting for summer Vaca sign. No More algebra two and that a Wing feeling in my stomach every stay. One Day in dreaded third period Brian leaned Over to me and to my Surprise he asked me to sign his year took. I must have sat there for a Fiill minute before i got Over the Shock and Aid yes. I thou to to myself quot this is my i cd really let him have it i could Tell him Diat i knew what he a quot a a Jack Canfield and Marie Victor Hansen was doing that he was trying to Hurt me and it was t fair. I could Tell him that i saw through his act that he and i both knew it was exactly that an act. But then it hit me a what Good would come of that would belittling him make me feel better or would it just perpetuate the pain that we both needed to recover from instead of writing of the pain i had endured i listed All of the Ftp times we had shared. I wrote about the first place we had Ever kissed the gifts he had Given me the lessons i had Learned a the ones he had taught me a and the first quot i love you quot that was whispered Between us. It took up one Page and that quickly became two until my hand was ted of writing. Liere were still a million More great memories crowding the Comers of my mind and i remembered Many More throw out the Day. It made me realize the things i Learnt from my and what great experiences we had shared. I finished by telling him that i held no hard feelings and i hoped he Felt the same. Maybe what i wrote in his yearbook made me look weak. Maybe he thought i was pathetic for still holding onto the memories of our relationship. But writing All those things helped me it helped me heal the wounds that still Hurt in my heart it Felt liberating to let go of the Mdge i finally Felt see of my anger. I realized that Brian Haid taught me one final lesson forgiveness. Someday when he is 50 years old and has his ohm children he might stumble upon his High school yearbook and they will ask who Stacy was.
