Jenna Plus and Minus
For someone I had never seen before in my life, I suddenly couldn’t stop watching Jenna Plus. Kyle was stalking me, and I was stalking her. Don’t worry, the irony wasn’t lost on me. But I needed to know if Matty was just hanging out with her or if they were together. Because my brain needed to figure out which level of jealousy was appropriate for the situation.
But finding her in Valerie’s version of juvie was unexpected. Guess Jenna Plus was a regular in detention and a leader among the rebel herd. Maybe Matty thought being bad was good?
From the bird tattoo on her ankle to the simple Carmex she wore instead of lipgloss, everything about Jenna Plus was cool. Bitch. I wondered if Matty liked smokers. And if so, could I fake a pro? I was getting ahead of myself. As Jenna Plus told me about her guy meltdown that I’d half-eavesdropped on, I had the sinking feeling in my gut that she was talking about Matty. Did that mean I was Matty’s rebound? Jenna Plus and I might have been from different planets, but our Matty heartbreak was the same. Unless, by some tiny, miniscule, pinhole chance, she wasn’t talking about Matty…
But of course, she was. Her phone rang and the caller ID said “McKibben.” There it was. The answer I was chasing. I couldn’t live in the safety of denial anymore. She was with Matty. He was with her. And I was with cancer. As much as I wanted to hate on Jenna Plus, I couldn’t. The bitch was decent. Maybe even sweet. And it really made me want to kill myself.
