How Movellas Changed My Life

*To Niall, the bestest, kindest, most patient friend I have ever had. As long as I live, I shall never forget you.* When Clover, shy and quiet fourteen-year-old hears of Movellas, she finds out she actually has a talent for writing. Movellas becomes her life. But how will her ex-popular friend Helen cope with this sudden surge in popularity for Clover? Will she be pleased or will she do her best to sabotage her reputation on Movellas?


6. More Popular

Leaving the bathroom, I avoided my friends' eyes. All of a sudden, all I wanted was for them to leave so I could think properly.


After we all ate breakfast, we went to my room.

"You should check your movella," urged Danté.

I checked it.

"Whoa! I got ten more fans! Twelve more comments! Danté, Helen, I'm popular! They all like Complete 360!"

"Well done!" Danté hugged me, his eyes shining.


Beside Danté, Helen yawned. Her phone beeped.

"Oh look, Clover. Alex texted me again. Can't stay away. Oh yeah, guess what, Alex wants to go out on a date with me to the cinema!" Helen said.

"Cool," I replied.

"Is that the Alex that tried to, you know, SLEEP with Clover after just one date? It is, isn't it?" Said Danté noticing Helen's blush. "D'ya think he'll try with you, Helen?"


I blushed myself. I didn't like remembering the time Alex Peoples tried to sleep with me after our first date. I had run away and not seen him since.


"It's none of your business, Danté." Snapped Helen. "I'm going home now anyway. I've got to be ready for my date at 6 with Alex anyway."

"But that's not for a while, if you want to stay longer, Helsey." I said, trying to be courteous.

"No, sorry Clover." She replied, not sounding the least bit sorry. Ungrateful much?

But secretly I was relieved. Helen could be tiring and I needed to think about the whole Danté thing.


Helen left on her bike. Then it was just me and Danté.

"I can go on my bike aswell, Clo if you want me to go."

"No, Danté. You can stay if you want."

We were sat on my bed doing nothing. He met my gaze intensely, his beautiful green eyes smouldering. Beautiful? Since when did I think things like that?


"I meant it you know, when I said I fancy you. I have done for ages." He said casually.

My heart skipped a beat. I suddenly realised his face was just inches from mine. How did that happen? I wondered. Just then, my mum walked in.

"Sorry to disturb you, dears, but I just wondered if Danté was staying for lunch?" Mum asked obliviously.

"No I was just going, the dogs need walking, Mum and Dad are on a weekend trip to Paris. I'll be off then. Bye Clover." Danté sauntered out.

Mum left without a word.


As I lay there on the bed, I wondered what would have happened if my mum hadn't walked in. With a start I realised..... I would've wanted it to happen.

Oh holy hell, I thought. I was in deep.
