What would happen to Lotus? What would she do with the guys all of sudden liking her?


9. The status update and awkward texting

The bells rang and I said goodbye to them all. Skylar umma hugged me tightly and I gave her my number. As the others saw that they got the same idea. So they took my phone and they all typed in their numbers. I just looked astonished at them and couldn’t really believe it. I have just gotten 8 phone numbers in the matter of minutes! That is defiantly something new! And after they gave back my phone they stood in line for me to type in my number.

First up was Dominic who just laughed at my reaction to all this. He smirked and smiled at me. I just shook my head. He was not normal, but that would just be boring, wouldn’t it? I took his phone and typed in my number. I called the contact ‘Cheesy Redhead’ and as he saw that name he broke into a loud laughter. I giggled at his reaction and continued typing all the numbers in. In all the phones I called myself ‘Cheesy Redhead’ and they all laughed at me. I just smiled big and shook my red hair. I messed up my hair on purpose to see if I could tease some of them and the boys did exactly what I thought they would. They all laughed nervously and smiled at me. Skylar umma frowned at me and I understood what she meant. I smiled innocent at her and by thought apologizing to her.

I chuckled and waved goodbye at them all the, jumped on my bike and bicycled home. The weather was just phenomenal and the sun shun on my face. The wind blew through my red hair which shined to beautiful in the sunlight. I just smiled the way home and I felt something buzzing at my lap. I slowed down and stopped. I gathered my phone and looked at what it was. It was a text.


From: Unknown Number

Hey Lotus

Wonder if you’ve forgotten our little bet?

Meet me at the big oak in the park at 8 o’clock tonight ;)

Wear something pretty



I frowned and growled at the text. How did he get my number? Sneaky bastard! This day just couldn’t get any worse than it is right now. I’ve agreed to get them those party invites which meant I had to talk to Angelo voluntarily.  And on top of that I’m meeting him tonight at the big oak in the park where he probably going to try to kiss me again. Ugh! And again, why did I agree to this? Oh yes.. I remember now: Revenge and to show him I’m not afraid of anything. I am of course freaking scared; he’s freaking Angelo ffs!

I decided to text him back and typed in the answer


To: Unknown Number

Hey Angelo

Don’t reckon I’ll wear anything pretty, but I’ll be there

And no, I haven’t forgotten about our bet

Btw where did you get my number!?


I saved his number so I would know if he’d texts me again. I’m curtain he’ll do that because of our bet and we needed to have some kind of contact with each other. But I don’t recall ever giving him my number, so that’s pretty creepy!

After I replied I went on my bike again and bicycled along the road again. I felt my phone buzz again but I decided not to answer before I came home. I didn’t bother stop again just to answer him – he’s not that important though.

I finally got home and I threw my backpack down to the floor. I sneaked out of my converse and hung my jacket up at the creak. The house was quiet as if it was a movie and the sound was taken off. It was almost scary and worrying how quiet it was. I guess my mom is at work or trying to get a job, I don’t know what she does when I’m not home. She has never told me so how could I possibly know?

I went into the kitchen and just grabbed a sandwich which was laying and looking deliciously in the fridge. I ran up the stairs and went into my room.

I checked my phone to see what Angelo replied me.


To: Lotus

Good, then it’s settled! You and me, at the old oak at 8 o’clock tonight

I’m waiting for tonight ;)

And I got my connections – don’t ask

See you tonight and you might as well save my number ;)

//Angelo x


As I saw the text I chuckled. This guy is too much. I can’t believe I agreed to this, but I have to finish what I started no matter how hard it is. I have to be a strong, independent woman! Or something like that..

I cleared my throat and took a bite of the amazing sandwich from the fridge. I glanced at my room to find my laptop and quickly I found it. I laid down the sandwich down and stretched over the bed to grab the laptop. As I got it near me I opened it and logged on facebook. The notifications were booming and raised my eyebrows. I looked at them and saw something I wished didn’t was true.


Angelo Suarez mentioned you in a status update Skylar Brown and 7 other commented on a status you’re mentioned in


I almost suffocated in my sandwich as I saw it. I coughed hard and loud. I couldn’t breathe and my head quickly went red. I decided in the rush to cough one big time to get the sandwich bite out, so I did it. Luckily for myself the bite flew out of my mouth and landed a few feet away on the floor. I coughed multiple times before I could breathe normally again.

I took a deep breath and cleared my throat and a disgusting taste filled my mouth. I cringed and complained “Eww”. I rolled on my mouse and pressed on the little box. The site downloaded into a new page. It was Angelo’s profile where he had made a status.


Can wait for tonight. It’s gonna be an amazing night, isn’t that right, Lotus?


I made big eyes and gaped at what he just posted. I looked down the comments and saw Skylar and all of the my new friends comment.


Skylar Brown: Yeah right! As if my Lotus would ever go on a date with you!


I smiled at Skylar ummas comment and applauded her courage of standing up for me. But if she knew what the story between Angelo and I was, she would reconsider our friendship. So for her sake I’ll take it easy with telling her. Somehow I trust her more than anyone else, even my mom which is strange. She’s just that kind of people you just by the second you meet them you just trust without any thoughts of it what so ever.  So of cause she’ll get all the details, except the truth about who I really am. I’ll save that for later.

I looked down all the comments and saw lots of comments such as “Wow, already dating the new girl huh!”, “Leave her alone, she’s too great for you to ruin her” and the classic “And why is that’s a surprise?”.

I growled at Angelo for doing this to me. I thought we’d keep this a secret but I guess that’s not an option anymore.

Ugh, he’s such a ducebag.

I decided to text him about it so I grabbed my phone and wrote the text.


To: Angelo

You dick!

Why did you post it on facebook?

Ugh, you make me to angry at times!


It didn’t take long for him to reply and I cringed at his text.


To: Lotus

Wow wow wow!

Easy tiger ;)

If it’s too much for you we can always call it off?


I literally growled at my phone and quickly replied to him


To: Angelo

No way!

I’m still up for this, Angie – I make you lose in a second!


I laughed at my text, especially that I called him Angie. I know it pisses him off so therefor I shall forever more call him Angie!


To: Lotus

It’s ANGELO not Angie okay?

It can’t be that hard to remember!


I laughed and texted him back.


To: Angelo

Sorry Angie

My fault ;)

See you tonight!


I threw my phone down to the bed and closed my laptop. Tonight is gonna be sick, just not in a good way.
