Sick Little Games


11. Hopeless Times


You know these days that just goes by so quickly that it’s already over before you can even say so? Well, today was definitely not one of those days. It’s like it was never going to end and it was seriously killing me. Ever since my big public fight with Louis this morning, it was like all of my friends were ignoring me and I was completely fine with it because I was so mad that I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I was in such a terrible mood that for lunch, I refused to sit in the cafeteria alone and look like an idiot. I took my stuff and went outside to breathe some fresh air. No one was ever eating outside, which was stupid because there was some nice tables just for that but oh well, good for me, I’d be alone and in peace. I sat down at one of the tables and started rummaging through my bag. I was hungry, not in a good mood and my sandwhich was missing. Well, fuck my life.

“Hey, there you are! ” Liam cheerfully said, with Zayn by his side. Where did these two come from? I didn’t even heard the door… I was about to scream in anger when I finally found my dear sandwich.

“What are you guys doing here? ” I said, in a defensive tone, not really sure of what to expect. Liam sat down infront of me and Zayn took place by my side.

“It’s lunch, Skye. We came here to eat, ya know? ” Zayn slowly explained, like I was the biggest idiot on this planet.

“Thank you, Captain Obvious! I didn’t know that! I’m talking about the fact that if you’re here to insult me or something like that, you can just leave. Thanks.” I said, taking the first sip of my water bottle.

“Yeah… We wanted to talk to you about that… About Harry. ” Liam said, visibly unsure about his words. I sighed in annoyance. An hour without talking about Harry Styles… Something that was now impossible in my life, I guess.

“We just want to say that we’re not mad at you. It’s between you and him and.. It’s none of our business. ” Liam said, with a small smile.

“Yeah, we really don’t want to get involved anyways… Too much drama! ” Zayn said, laughing a little. I couldn’t agree more, he was right. There was way too much drama but unfortunately for me, I couldn’t avoid it like they could. I had to face it. Even if I didn’t want to.

“Thank you guys… I was convinced that I was now friendless so… Thanks! And by the way, could you guys, I don’t know, maybe explain your point of view to Louis? I don’t think he gets the whole ‘it’s none of his business’ part of the whole story! ” I said, laughing sarcastically.

“Oh, you know how he is… He’s overreacting, as always! He’ll calm down eventually, don’t worry about it… ” Liam said, with his mouth full. I looked down at my sandwich and started to think about what Louis said to me earlier again… I usually didn’t care about what people think of me. It’s way better like that to be honest, I’m happier this way but… Louis is one of my best friends. It was different than just being insulted by some random stranger. I especially didn’t like what he said because there was some kind of truth in it. It’s not like I’m the nicest girl on this planet. I’m not stupid, I know I’m a bitch sometimes.

“You know… Louis said I treat people like shit because I only care about myself… He has a point. It’s not like I’m a great person really so… ” I said in a low voice, still looking down. Zayn suddenly elbowed me in the ribs, which made me look up to meet his gaze.

“Shut up, Skye. Louis was mad. He didn’t mean it. ” He said, with a small smile.

“And besides… ” Liam began, I turned to him, wondering where this conversation was going. I shouldn’t have said that. I didn’t want my friends to feel bad for me. I didn’t want people to feel bad for me at all. I hated that.

“ You’re not a bad person, Skye. You’re not. Alright? ” Liam said, with a reassuring smile. I smiled back. I was honestly so grateful to be friends with these two guys right now. They were the only ones who didn’t turn their back on me. The thought of a blond irish best friend of mine suddenly came back to me.

“Hey, where’s Niall? ” I asked, taking a bite of my sandwich. I guessed he was probably ignoring me now. I wouldn’t be surprised. Everyone has been ignoring me since the party.

“Football practice, I think? ” Liam genuinely said. Liam was the worst liar in the history of lying. I would have known immediately and besides… Niall was in the football team, so his excuse was believable.

“Skye… I know we said it’s none of our business but… can I ask you something? ” Zayn said, with a smirk on his face. Oh boy, I knew where this was going.

“Ask away, Malik! Go ahead! ” I said, turning to him. He had that damn cheeky smile on his face. I just knew what subject we were about to discuss here, it was obvious.

“So… Is Harry good in bed or..? ” Zayn said, wiggling his eyebrows like crazy. I burst out laughing and Liam immediately joined in with me. Of course, I knew he was going to ask something related to that. I just knew it.

This dreadful day was finally over. I managed to make it through the rest of day without seeing Louis or even Harry again, which is something completely wonderful since they were the last two people I’d like to see right now. All that matters is that I was now home and away from everyone that currently hates me. I slowly opened the door and lazily let my bag fall on the floor. I threw my keys on the kitchen counter and almost ran to the fridge. I heard some noise coming from my mom’s office. I guess she was home or we were being robbed.

“Mom, what are we having for dinner!? ” I screamed, still waiting for the confirmation of this person’s identity.

“I ordered some chinese, I hope that’s alright? ” My mom replied, she seemed annoyed with my unnecessary screaming. She always was.

“Yeah, that’s fine. ” I lied. I was hoping for better than that to be honest. I closed the door fridge, moving my attention to the mail that was on the counter. Most of it was just some random bills but it’s the letter underneath them all that really got my attention. I instantly took it, my curiosity winning the best of me. This white envelope was kind of big and… It smelled like perfume? I almost ripped it open, I was just way too curious to find what it was about but unfortunately for me, I immediately regretted my decision. I ran to my mother’s office and stopped at the door, I still had the letter in my hands.

“Are you alright sw- ” My mom began but didn’t finish. She saw what I had in my hands. She understood really quickly.

“Please, tell me this is a joke. ” I said, with no emotions in my voice. My heart was beating so hard I could literally hear it. My mother stood up, she seemed very unsure of what to say or what to do. That just made me even more mad than I already was.

“I can’t believe it! I can’t believe he’s going to marry that whore and I can’t believe he actually sent a fucking invitation! ” I screamed. My head was pounding. I wanted to cry but I was using all my of my possible self-control not to.

“Skye, please, listen- ” My mom began but I didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t want to hear any of it.

“I’m not going, mom! You’re honestly insane if you think that I’m gonna go to this fucking wedding! ” I said with bitter words, crossing my arms.

“He’s your father, Skye! He’s not some stranger that- ”

“Well, he might as well be one! ” I screamed, just before she could even finish what she had to say. She didn’t say anything. I guess she already was tired of arguing. I threw the invitation on the floor with a disgusted look on my face.

“ I can’t believe you’re not on my side for this one. ” I whispered and quickly left her office. I ran upstairs and slammed my bedroom door shut. My eyes were burning, my head was pounding and my heart was going crazy. I honestly felt sick at the idea of watching my dad getting married with another woman. I felt sick. I hated this place. I hated this family. I just wanted to leave. I just wanted to forget everything… For just one night. The thought of someone instantly came to my mind. I took my phone out of my pocket and scrolled down my list of contacts, I still had him in there somewhere. I knew it. Ha, jackpot.

My cellphone almost glued to my ear, I was waiting. I really hoped he was going to pick up.

“Skye Isaacs… To what do I owe the pleasure of you calling me on this fine evening? ” His laugh echoed through the phone.

“I wanna see you, Ethan. Tonight. ” I said bluntly.

“But, what about you and Styles..? ” Ethan carefully asked.

“There is no me and Styles… Not anymore. ” I said, on a cheerful tone. I knew Ethan, he wasn’t going to say no if he knew I was completely single.

“Alright then… I’ll pick you up at 8. ” He quickly replied. Ha, I knew it.

“Brilliant! I’ll see you later. ” And then, I hang up. I looked up to see my reflection in the huge mirror that was just beside my bed. Tonight was going to be great. Tonight was all about me forgetting about my problems… Well atleast, I was going to try.
