Teardrops on my Guitar, by Taylor Swift (word count: 575)

(A/N Whenever, the song said ‘Drew’, which is the name of the guy Taylor Swift was singing about, I changed it to ‘He’ so it’d make sense)

“Juliet. Can I talk to you?” Artemis’s face is bright red, and my heart skips a beat as the questions spring to my mind. Is he in love? Does he like me? What is it? Oh no, was it something that I did? Of course not, you were in Beijing for the past year! Does he miss me? Did he miss me so much that he wants to confess his undying passion for me? Oh, please let it be true.
I shake the thoughts from my head and answer. “Yes, Artemis. Of course.” You know I’d do anything for you.

He looks at me
I fake a smile so he won’t see
What I want and I need
And everything that we should be

I love him. And he’s going to love me. No, he doesn’t love me. I know that better than anyone should be allowed to. So with ‘fake’ written all over my face, I follow him out into the garden.
“What is it?” I say.
“I really like this girl…” Artemis began hesitantly.

I’ll bet she’s beautiful
That girl he talks about
And she’s got everything
That I have to live without

Is it me? For a second, I am almost hopeful. Then I see his face. It’s not me? Who? Instantly, I hate the girl. I bet I could beat her up twenty different ways, easy. Yeah, that’s me. Then I remember what Madame Ko has drilled into my head. Do not let your heart guide you. I glance at Artemis bitterly. Love hurts.

He talks to me
I laugh ’cause it’s just so funny
I can’t even see
Anyone when he’s with me
He says he’s so in love
He’s finally got it right
I wonder if he knows
He’s all I think about at night

Artemis paces back and forth. “But…she’s so gorgeous. And smart.” My heart aches. This isn’t like all the other times. Not at all.

He walks by me
Can he tell that I can’t breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly
The kind of flawless I wish I could be

“Just tell her you like her, okay?” I say, a bit harsher than I intended. He looks at me with hurt flashing in his eyes. Then whatever pain I cause him is gone. Just like that.

She better hold him tight
Give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes
And know she’s lucky ’cause
He’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He’s the song in the car I keep singing
Don’t know why I do

”You know what? You’re…right.” He pulls out his cell phone and dials. One ring. Then two…
“Hello? Who is this?”
“Minerva? It’s me, Artemis…”

So I drive home alone
As I turn out the light
I’ll put his picture down
And maybe get some sleep tonight
‘Cuz he’s the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who’s got enough of me to break my heart
He’s the song in the car I keep singing
Don’t know why I do

Juliet. Fearless. Tough. Beautiful. Fierce. Unstoppable. And now? Heartbroken.

I love him so bad it hurts. And my Romeo will never be mine.

He’s the time taken up but there’s never enough
And he’s all that I need to fall into
He looks at me
I fake a smile so he won’t see

  7. Nice and cute. I wouldn’t’ve thought of using Pretty Girl Rock, but I’ve actually never heard the song. Just my tone-deaf friend singing it. She makes it sound a whole lot worse XD.

    I liked the way you made their characters and how you incorporated the song in it.

    Thanks! Yeah…my science teacher showed the song to our class one day, and it was stuck in my head for the entire day, so that’s kinda why I used it XD
