↳ Jamie King - Seventeen - Junior - FC: Steven R. McQueen. - He is CLOSED.
웃 -Ex of Christian Miller.
Jamie King is the kid everyone tends to pick on. And it’s not really Jamie’s fault; really, it’s more of who of whom he’s related to. His sister, Laney, went to this school and had an affair with a teacher and ended up getting pregnant when she was 16. Jamie’s whole family became the town laughingstocks, Laney getting called a slut and whore at school and his parents being called “bastards who couldn’t raise their kids’ right.” And it all went downhill from there. His parents endlessly fought, and his mother left them and moved to Michigan, not being able to take being made fun of anymore. His father became an alcoholic and lost his job, and life seemed like an absolute shithole to Jamie. And it certainly didn’t help at all that Jamie was bisexual. Wherever Jamie went, people would stare and whisper about the brother of the girl who got pregnant with a teacher. At school, all his old friends abandoned him and he always sat alone at lunch. His friends didn’t want to be associated with a “guy with a sister who goes around fucking everyone.” Everyone seemed to wait for him to finally slip up and lash out; anything to continue the family line of messed-up kids.
Jamie kept on going, though, and never lost his bright, cheery attitude and smile, and he never was rude to anyone. He was smart, funny, happy, sociable… He could’ve easily been one of the popular kids if it wasn’t for his sister. It pretty much shocked everyone how a boy with no friends could still be so happy. It seemed like they’d never be able to break him, and everyone secretly admired how strong he was. But under that happy façade was a vulnerable, angry, sad boy who was mad at the world. Jamie was angry at everything. His dad for being a bottom feeder alcoholic and causing Jamie to work 40 hours a week just to pay the bills, his stupid mom for leaving him and making everything fall apart even more, his sister for even having the affair in the first place, and everyone for making fun of him. He loved his family dearly, and he knew he would never stop loving them. He understood that they made bad choices and that they would be hard to fix, but why was he getting made fun of because of them? He’s never done anything bad in his life. Still, Jamie kept his head held high and never let anyone push him down. He wasn’t going to end up like his family and let the pressure break him. He was going to graduate and get out of this god forsaken town.
Jamie was fine with his current life. It wasn’t the absolute greatest, but he had clothes on his back and a roof over his head with the money he earned from working so much. He wasn’t happy, but he was living, and that was all that mattered. But his life was kind of lonely, being shunned all the time. But it all changed when one of the school’s popular guys came over and sat at his lunch table. Jamie was confused. Why would one of the school’s popular boys, Christian Smith, sit with the slut’s brother? What confused him even more was that she actually started to talk to him. Jamie was skeptical; this was probably one of the jokes the jocks had set up to watch him think he had a friend and then, BOOM! Turns out it was all a bet. But Jamie had spent too long without having talked to anyone at school, and he foolishly started to respond. Jamie was surprised at how intelligent, funny, and kind the boy was; he used to think that all of the popular people were rude and vain. And to put it simply, Jamie’s life did a complete U-Turn. Christian and Jamie quickly became best friends, and everything just changed. He was being talked to. He was being invited to parties. He actually had people to sit with at lunch. And on top of that, he had Christian. Life was perfect.
It all just seemed to get better when Jamie realized he had feelings had for Christian; they had been there for a while, but Jamie just denied them. With his new cocky, confident attitude, he asked Christian out on a complete whim; to his complete and utter surprise, he accepted. Life somehow managed to grow even better. Not only did he have friends, he had an amazing boyfriend who understood him and loved him. Everything was great between them; all they could seem to do was kiss and hold hands, make romantic jokes, and the two never seemed to be able to handle being more than three feet apart. He was young and in love, he had great friends, a great life… Jamie finally had that perfect, normal life he always used to wish for around Christmas time. Besides his family; it was still fucked up, but with a life like his? He could deal with the slowly growing pile of vodka bottles around the house. But it all came crashing down when he learned his new-found personality, popularity, and boyfriend were all just a big, fat lie.
What lead up to the break up?
Maybe Jamie should have just listened to instincts when Christian first sat next to him, the lonely kid sitting by himself at lunch. Jamie was sleeping over at Christian’s house, doing whatever cute couples do whenever they’re together. Jamie had decided to go to the bathroom and on the way, overheard his Christian talking to one of his friends on the phone. “I can’t wait until this bet is over. I am so ready to break up with Jamie. I can’t date a loser like him. That’s social suicide.” Jamie’s heart broke as he heard that last sentence. He knew that it was all a joke, and he hated that he actually thought that people like Christian could be different.
Seven thing I hate about them?
❝I hate how easily he can spit lies out through his teeth and still look so… So trustworthy. I hate how he took my heart and just smashed it into a million little pieces. I hate his stupid face and he smiles like a goddamn hyena. I hate how convincing he was, acting like he actually loved me. Ha. He knew my life was fucked-up, and he just made it a thousand times worse. He’s a heartless bitch. I wouldn’t talk to him if hell froze over.❞
