Sick Little Games


12. Horrifying Surprise


I’ve been in hiding for four days now. No school. No friends. Nothing. Ever since all of the unfortunate events on monday, I’ve been feeling really ‘sick’ and I didn’t go to school for the rest of the week because of that. At first, my mom was mad because she said I was overreacting but she got tired of yelling at me to go to school so she just let me stay in. It’s not that I was literally sick, I just had this never-ending headache and this feeling…. This constant urge to scream at the top of my lungs because I hate everything and everyone around me. Dramatic much? Maybe… But this is how I feel anyway. I was sitting on my bed, reading for like the millionth time, the amazing book ‘The Perks of being a Wallflower’ when suddenly, someone lightly knocked on my bedroom door. It was probably my mom again… All she tried to do all week was trying to get me to talk about my feelings. It made me so fucking sick to even begin to imagine, me, crying on my mom’s shoulder about how I feel. I don’t talk about my feelings. I just don’t like it. Especially not with her… Let’s just say that I’d rather keep everything inside than look weak by telling someone about my feelings.

“Skye has died. Please leave and never come back. ” I screamed at my mom who was still behind the door. The poor woman was deaf or just stupid because she went and opened my door anyway… My mom turned out to be someone else. It was Louis. Oh great… I would have prefered my mom actually. I sighed very loudly and closed my book.

“Well, well… Look who’s here! Did you come here to insult me again or..? ” I said to him, with a huge fake smile on my face. He was my best friend but… I didn’t like what he said to me the other day and I wasn’t ready to forget about it.

“C’mon Skye, don’t be like that! I came here to apologize alright… ” Louis said, looking down. I threw my book on my bed and jumped on my feet. I just stared at him, crossing my arms. I wasn’t going to forgive him today, he could forget about it… But still, I was curious about what he was going to say next in the hope to earn my forgiveness.

“ Look… On monday, I was mad for no good reasons and I’m really sorry about what I said… I didn’t mean it at all and- ” Louis said. I couldn’t help but laugh. Yeah, right.

“Shut up, Louis. If you said that, it’s because deep down… You mean it. ” I said bitterly. I was trying my best to look all tough and annoyed but I honestly was just really hurt by all of this. If there’s someone I need in my life… It’s Louis. He’s my best friend and I thought he would always be there for me but no… I was wrong. Nothing lasts forever apparently.

“No, I didn’t! It’s just that Harry’s my best mate so- ” Again, I couldn’t help myself but to scream at him before he could even have the chance to finish talking.

“Can we please not talk about Harry for once!? For fuck sakes… ” I said, throwing my hands in the air, completely desperate.

“Oh, I think we really should talk about him! ” Louis said, his eyes burning into mine. I don’t know where he was going with this and I didn’t like it. I didn’t like it at all.

“Why does it matter so much to you anyway!? What’s going on between Harry and I is so not of your business! ” I said very loudly, not really caring that my mom could probably hear everything I was saying.

“Because he’s my friend and you’re my friend and… He really likes you Skye! ” I ran my hands through my hair. This conversation was driving me completely mad. I already knew that Harry had feelings for me and I didn’t need him to remind me.

“Well, I don’t. So therefore, I really don’t give a fuck. ” I said blankly. I knew I was mean but I didn’t care. I just really wanted Louis to get the message. It’s like he was playing the matchmaker and Harry and I were his victims.

“That’s rubbish and you know it! I know you Skye Isaacs and I know you have feelings for him too! ” Louis sighed, like it was the most obvious thing on this planet that I apparently have ‘feelings’ for Harry Styles.

“Oh, really? Please tell me how it’s so obvious my dear! ” I screamed in annoyance. I had this huge sarcastic smile on my face. Louis was going mad. He had to! How could he possibly believe that I had feelings for Harry… Oh my god.

“There’s many reasons why but… Just the fact that you’ve been hiding in here all week just proves that you’re scared of facing him and- ”

“Not everything in my life has to do with Harry Styles. ” I snapped. The main reason I stayed home all week is because of my dad and how shitty my family makes me feel.

“What is it then..? ” Louis asked with a worried look on his face, noticing the sudden change in my facial expression. I looked down, I didn’t want to talk about it. I refused to.

“Don’t act like you care. ” I whispered.

“Of course I care! I’m your best mate, bloody hell! ” Louis screamed, annoyed with my attitude. Great, it was working. He would probably leave soon and let me alone to die then.

“You and me. We’re not friends… Not anymore. ” I said, looking up to meet his eyes. Even though I adored him with everything in me, I just didn’t want to deal with all the drama and the shit anymore. I was done. He stared at me for awhile, like if he was wondering if he heard me right or not.

“So, that’s it? More than 10 years of friendship… Ending… Like that!? ” Louis said, his eyes slowly watering. I didn’t say anything. I just kept staring at him, not saying a word. I’ve never seen him so upset… He slowly walked towards my bedroom door but turned around one last time and said:

“You know what!? You’re gonna end up all alone if you keep pushing away people like that, Skye. You’re doing a big mistake… ”

“Well, that’s me! The bitch who doesn’t give a shit about anyone but herself! Isn’t that right!? ” I said, reminding him of the hurtful words he said to me a couple of days ago. I gulped really loudly as I watched him leave my bedroom and slammed the door behind him. My eyes were burning and my throat was extremely dry. I really wanted to cry but I couldn’t. I didn’t want to be weak and just let it all out. I was better than this… I didn’t need him in my life. I didn’t need Louis or any of the guys. I didn’t need anyone.

Being on my own was alot better than I expected. Ever since I told Louis I was done with him, Zayn and Liam called me loads of times but I never picked up. I was so fed up with everything that I just didn’t want to see anyone. I know Zayn and Liam were just trying to be nice to me but… I just really needed time to think about all of this. That’s why that on saturday morning, I decided to get up early, take a really long bath and after that, go spend the afternoon at the mall. Obviously, our only shopping mall wasn’t the best but it was alright I guess. I was simply too lazy to go all the way to London just for the sake of looking around shops and do nothing all afternoon basically. When I finally got there, I was pleased to see that there wasn’t too many people. I had no problems with big crowds, it’s just that today, I didn’t feel like dealing with the rest of the humanity. The first two hours of my little shopping session went perfectly. I found an adorable little dress that would be perfect for the charity event that I was supposed to go to tonight. Yeah, I know it seems all very fancy but my mom works for GQ magazine and she invited me to come with her since I’ve been inside the house all week… Even though social situations were not my cup of tea these days, I couldn’t bring myself to refuse her offer. Free champagne and free food? Count me in.

I finally made my way into Topshop and after 20 minutes of just looking around… Reality came back to punch me in the face.

“Hey Skye! ” I heard a little voice called from behind me. Oh shit. I knew that voice and I knew that voice probably implied that some other people that I knew (and didn’t want to see) were probably here at the mall somewhere. Fuck. I slowly turned around, trying my best to make my smile convincing.

“Oh! Hey Tatum! ” I said in a low voice. It’s not that I didn’t like her… She was a lovely girl. She was a really good friend but… She’s dating Liam and the fact that he’s probably here somewhere was freaking me out. I didn’t want to face any of the boys today.

“We’ve all been worried sick about you! Where were you all week? ” She sweetly asked, with a genuine smile. Damn it… Why does she have to be so nice?

“ Just some family problems… I didn’t feel very well. I was at home the whole time. ” I blurted out. I didn’t even know why I told her all of that… But oh well, it felt great to tell someone the truth for once. She was about to say something else when a group of boys entered the shop, laughing and talking really loudly. Of course. I knew it.

“Hey love, did you get all the things you wanted? ” Liam’s voice echoed from not very far away behind us.

“ Yeah! I bought the dress I wanted! Look who I bumped into! ” Tatum said with a big smile on her face. Was she aware of everything that was going on? Erm, I didn’t think so. She took my arm and dragged me along with her to go meet the boys. I was now facing Liam, Zayn and… Harry. Why, oh why does my life sucks so much?

“Skye! You’re alive!” Liam joked, laughing a little. Zayn joined in and of course, Harry was just standing there, staring at me and staying silent.

“Yeah… I’m alright, don’t worry! So, I’m just gonna go now- ” I quickly said, trying my best to get out of this awkward situation.

“No way! We’re going to eat and you’re coming with us. ” Zayn said, smiling like an idiot. What the fuck was he doing? Liam and Zayn both knew exactly what was going on! It’s like they wanted me to suffer or something.

“But I have things to do- ” I began but immediately got cut off by Liam.

“C’mon, we haven’t seen you in ages! It’ll be a laugh! ” Liam said, his eyes full of hope. I do not know why but I managed to look in Harry’s direction and we locked eyes for a second or two… He didn’t seem to like Liam and Zayn’s idea of me joining them either. Well, good to know I wasn’t the only one feeling very awkward about all of this.

I was now in Nandos with Liam, Zayn, Tatum and Harry, wishing I could be somewhere else… It’s not that I didn’t want to see them… Well, kinda… But Harry being there just made the whole thing alot worse. The tension was just making me so uncomfortable that I couldn’t say a word. Liam and Zayn were trying their best to talk alot so there wasn’t any awkward silence… These bastards. I now knew why they were doing this. They were trying to make things better. Even though that was really sweet of them to do so, I wasn’t interested in being friends with Harry. Not now or never to be completely honest. And to make everything even more shitty, I was sitting next to Harry. Again, I’m sure it’s their fault. They practically ran to their seats when we got here. Tatum, Liam and Zayn had their little conversation going on… Me and Harry were just eating slowly, not saying a word. It was all very awkward.

“Are you gonna finish these? ” Harry suddenly said. I turned to him, not really sure if I heard him right or not.

“Excuse me!? ” I snapped, on a defensive tone.

“I’m just wondering if you’re going to finish these… ” Harry said in a low voice, pointing my chili chips. I sighed, feeling stupid that I got all worked up for nothing. I smiled a bit and pushed the little plate towards him.

“Cheers… ” Harry said, looking down at his plate again. And here comes the awkward silence again! It felt like you could actually feel the tension in the air. It was just terrible.

“You know, I really hope you’re not mad at Louis because of me… ” Harry mumbled, still looking down at his food. The others were so caught up in what they were talking about that they didn’t even notice that me and Harry were now actually talking.

“Everything is not about you Harry. ” I sighed, tired of talking about this. Tired of just talking at all.

“Sorry… It’s just that Louis and you got in a fight because of me and- ” Harry started but I didn’t want to hear the rest. I just wanted him to stop talking.

“Well, yeah. It’s kind of your fault but you know… It doesn’t matter anymore. ” I said bitterly.

“No, please, go ahead! It’s like you’ve got alot to say to me! ” Harry said, kind of pissed off. Wow. I didn’t mean to start an argument but here we were.

“Oh, trust me. I’ve got nothing to say to you, Harry. ” I snapped, glaring at him. As he opened his mouth to say that he had alot to say to me and bla bla, my cellphone vibrated in my pocket. I immediately took it out, ignoring the fact that Harry was still talking to me. It was my mom texting me to make sure I was still going to the charity event with her. Well, fuck. I almost forgot about that. I threw my phone in my bag and got up.

“Hey, you’re leaving already? ” Liam asked, visibly confused. They were all now starting at me, well, Harry was glaring but oh well.

“I gotta go. I’ve got this thing with my mom in London… ” I said, as I took some money out of my wallet and put it on the table.

“Oh, what thing!? ” Tatum peeped, with an adorable little smile.

“Oh… Just some random charity gala thingy organized by GQ magazine… ” I said, dying to leave this place and be far far away from Harry.

“Wow, that doesn’t sound snooty at all. ” Harry scoffed. Everyone turned around to glare at him. Glad to know I wasn’t the only one who thought he was acting like an absolute idiot.

“Well, that’s my cue. Goodnight. ” I said in a sarcastic tone, glaring at Harry. I turned around and almost ran to the door. Finally, it was over. I couldn’t wait to get to this event tonight… Even though, unfortunately for me, there wasn’t enough champagne in the world to make me forget about my shitty life.
