15. Hungover and a weird phone call

It was Sunday and I could sleep as long as I wanted, which I did. Well, I would’ve if it weren’t for my friends’ texting me at 9 am in the freaking morning! I narrowed my eyes, looking at my phone on the table next to my bed, buzzing and being noisy as hell.

I growled at the phone, urging to throw it out of the window.

“You’ve got to be kidding me” I sneered at my phone and yawned. I stretched my arms and moaned. My head was spinning and I felt dizzy. This usually happens when I’m being woken up this early in the weekends. I drew in my safety pattern and checked what all the buzz was about.


(17) unread messages and (9) missed calls


I gaped at my phone, making big eyes and bit my lip. Oh my gosh, what is this? I checked who the messages were from. Most of them was from Angelo, asking where I was, why I did it and that we should meet after school on Monday. I frowned. Never in my life have I had all this attention before. This is so weird.

As I had read all the texts from Angelo I saw, surprisingly, some texts from Jack and Dominic. I raised my eye brows.


To: Lotus

From: Jack

Hey Lotus

I hope that I’m not waking you up with this text

Just been wondering if you want to go out for a drink sometime?

And I know everything about that bet with Angelo, he told me about it last night


He what!? Oh my gosh. Well, then he know why I keep spending time with him and it’s not voluntarily. But going out for a drink? I can’t say no to that.



To: Lotus

From: Dominic

Hey Lotus

You left very suddenly last night

What was that all about?

And everyone keeps saying you hooked up with Angelo at the party


What’s up with him? And where did he get that from!? I thought I looked carefully so I knew there wouldn’t be anyone near us when I did my move. Ugh. And why did he have to know it? I guess, he already has told it to the group and on Monday my social life is messed up. Thank you Dominic.

I cringed. I sat up, glancing at my room which was so messy. I didn’t bother clean it up,


To: Lotus

From: Angelo


You never cease to surprise me

Meet me at the oak today at 2 pm


What? What’s up with everyone wanting to meet me? This is just some abnormal behavior from all three. And it’s only been like 2 weeks since this term started!

I cringed. Should I ditch Angie and go for a drink with Jack? It would certainly piss him off.. At lot! And I guess he would feel jealous and jealousy shows that the person likes someone. Hey! Revelation time: That’s exactly what I need.

Note to myself: Make Angelo effing jealous.

I giggled. I decided to text Angie back.



To: Angelo

From: Lotus

Hey Angie

Can’t meet up today

I have plans



I cleared my throat and pressed send. I yawned and texted Jack.


To: Jack

From: Lotus

Hey Jack

I’m up for a drink

Just give me time and place and I’ll be there

//Lotus aka slightly hungover littlesisters friend


I smiled and laughed briefly. I love this little game me and Jack have going on. This is such fun.

My phone buzzed and I saw a text from Jack.


To: Lotus

From: Jack


Meet me at the local café for some pancakes at 1 pm

//Jack aka also slightly hungover friend’s older brother


I chuckled. I looked at my phone to see what the time was and it showed 11 pm. I took a deep breath and went for a shower. I got myself ready and put on some natural makeup. I didn’t need to look great. I just needed to look okay. I went downstairs to see my mom sitting in the kitchen drinking her morning coffee.

“Good morning sweetheart” she greeted me and sent me the famous fake smile. I sat down next to her and took a sip of her coffee. I was so tired and it felt like someone was banging a baseball bat numerously in my head. Auch.

“Morning” I greeted back and went to the fridge to see what interesting things we have in store.

I frowned. Only some milk and sliced pieces of ham. I rolled my eyes and looked at the clock on the wall. Wow, we have so much food. Notice the sarcasm.

“I’m glad you haven’t seen that Suarez boy for some time” he said and took another sip of her coffee.

“Like you care who I’m hanging with, mom” I snapped back, avoiding her glance.

I went out of the kitchen and texted Skylar Umma wondering if she wanted to hang out for a bit before I headed to the café to meet Jack. She said yes and we agreed to meet at the old oak in the park.


“Hey Lotus!” I heard Skylar Umma call after me and I turned my head to see where she called from. She was standing near the old oak and I walked fast to her. We hugged and the subject quickly went on the party last night.

“So, I heard you got a ride home from Jack, Jades brother” she cooed and I chuckled. How could she know? But yes, I certainly did.

“Yeah, that’s true. Since none of you wanted to give me a ride home, I decided to text him and he picked me up right away” I exclaimed and smiled. Skylar Umma rolled her eyes and looked down into the ground.

“How did you even get his number?” she asked and looked expectant at me. She didn’t look too happy.

“He apparently got it from Jade, as I was told. Then he texted me that he got my number and then I saved his” I said and Skylar Umma laughed at me. “I can give it to you if you want?” I offered.

Skylar snickered and nodded like crazy. I gave her his number and her eyes lit up. “Thanks! I love you!!”  she beamed. I think she has a thing for Jack, maybe I should try to set them up?

“You know, Dominic wasn’t that pleased with you getting a ride from Jack” she claimed and giggled. What? What’s up with him? Ugh boys.

“Well, he can mind his own business. I just needed a ride home and Jack was the only one up for it. If it was that big of a deal he could just have given me a ride” I said and laughed. Skylar Umma shook her head and smiled. Dominic sounds like a jealous boyfriend who a bit too overprotective. I guess, he thinks he had the dips on me first, but I don’t really care what he thinks. I can do whatever I want.

“You’re right! To be honest, I think Dominic has a thing for you. The way he looks at you when we eat in the cafeteria, he’s absolutely hit by the arrow of Amor” I cringed. Yeah right and my name’s Lindsay Lohan.

I shook my head and laughed. I smiled and hit her lightly on her shoulder. She whined and yelled “What was that for!” I said and laughed. “That’s for lying! And even if he’s into to me, I can’t date anyone right now. I have a bet to win” I said, not knowing what I just said.

Skylar Umma raised her eyebrow and I gaped at myself. “Did I just say that out loud?” Skylar Umma nodded slowly. Shit!

I heard a familiar sound ring in my pocket and I saw someone was calling me. Thank God, that was an amazing timing! I apologized and answered.

“Hello?” I said.

Hey Lotus, it’s Jack. I can’t meet up today, sorry. Something got up and I have to handle it. Maybe some other time, we could those pancakes, slightly hangover little sisters friend” I laughed and got his reference.

“Sure, it’s fine. And those pancakes can and will always wait in that café, so we can go there another time” I assured him.

Phew, I just thought you’d freak out of something because I cancelled. Thank God, you didn’t, you seem awesome

“Yeah, I know. One of us have to be awesome, so that’s me” I teased and giggled. Skylar Umma looked curiously at me and I mimed ‘Jack’ to her. She looked down into the ground, looking a bit sad.

“But you know, if you wanna do me a favour, meet up with Skylar Umma. She’s one of my very best friends and you’ll love her!” As I was done I could see Skylar Umma fangirl, cry out in happiness and smiling like an idiot.

 “Why, may I ask?” I heard him ask and I chuckled.

“Because, since you know about the bet, we both know this won’t ever work out. That’s why I’m giving you the option of meeting this amazing girl!” I said in a happy voice and smiled.

Erm, I was actually going to ignore the bet and date you anyway, but since you refuse, I guess I can try meet up with her” he said and I could hear a familiar voice call in the back. “Jack, come on you lazy bastard! How can a girl be so important that you have to call her in the middle of a game billiard?”

I laughed.

Just ignore that” he said and chuckled. “Give me her number and tell her to text me, then I might figure something out” he said and I gave Skylar Umma a thumb up.

“Great!” I chuckled. I heard some scratching sounds and Jack saying no. What was happening?

Hello?” I heard a new voice say.

“Well, hello there stranger” I said and chuckled.

Lotus?” the voice asked again and then I recognized it. Damn, it’s Angelo!

“Erm.. Yes, hi Angie” I said nervously.

So you’re the girl Jack’s been talking about all morning” he said with a mad tone of voice.

“Have he now?” I teased and giggled.

Mh-hm” he mumbled.

“Are you jealous, Angie?” I teased again, smiling like an idiot.

No at all! And would you mind stop calling me Angie? It’s freaking annoying” he asked.


You stubborn girl

“Yes indeed”

Did you ditch me because of the so called ‘date’ at the café with Jack?"

“Maybe? Like you would care”

I would care, since he ditched you because you ditched me, to hang out with me instead of you

“And I still don’t care? Angie, just leave it. We could meet any other day anyway”

Oh yeah? If you have forgotten we still have this bet and I’m wondering if you’re scared to lose. That’s why you ditched me to meet Jack. You’re afraid of the feelings you have near me

I chuckled. Ridicules boy.

I knew it

“Do you really believe that? How cute”

Yeah I know, I’m cute as hell”

I looked around the park to see Skylar Umma looking with big eyes at me. Shit, I forgot I was with her!

“Oh please! You cocky bastard. I’m hanging up, I have a friend who’s being left alone while I’m talking to you. See you later Angie and say hi from me to Jack” I said and hung up.

I want over to Skylar Umma who sat nicely on the bench near the oak and looked up at me.

The breath in to say something, but I quickly said “Long story” She smiled, but she didn’t look happy though.

I smiled to her. “Smile! You have a date with Jack for God’s sake! Be happy!” I chuckled and giggled.

She gaped at me, then the burst out in happy giggle and screamed in happiness. She was smiling all over her face and any trace of sadness disappeared. She dragged me into a big hug and I laughed into her shoulder.

“Thank you so much! Gaah, I love you Lotus!” she cried out and pressed me even harder towards her chest.

“You’re.. Welcome.. “ I said stiffly as I couldn’t breathe from being squeezed by Skylar.
