Pitch Slapped

Delany was a freshman in high school and orientation was where clubs recruited the 'freshies'. Many clubs asked for her to come join but they all seemed to dorky like the chess club or book club. She didn't want to be a nerd like in middle school. She wanted to stand out, shine. That's when one specific club caught her eye, not just because of the guy recruiting with his brunette curls. Just the idea of it all. Being noticed.


30. Stay Strong

That talk I had with Niall Friday night was on my mind all weekend and even on Monday during school. Their was no possibly way I was in love with Harry. The song was just something I made up. Well then again me and Harry happened to be in a cafe on a Wednesday. Maybe that was just a coincidence? It had to be. Once lunch came and I sat by myself I finally knew my answer.

When lunch finally ended that meant fifth period, which meant Demi. Demi happened to be my lab partner today which made everything perfect.

"Hey, I'm Delany." I smiled at her.

"I'm Demi." She mumbled and smiled. She was gorgeous. Her long blond hair was put in a long ponytail and her make up was done so perfectly.

She started grabbing the lab equipment when I noticed she had a tattoo to on each wrist. The left wrist said 'Stay' and the right wrist said 'Strong'. 'Stay Strong'. It was no big deal she had tattoos, I have several of them, Cher has some, and Harry has tattoos too. But stay strong, did she use to be a cutter? That's none of my business, back to the plan.

"So, um, Niall tells me you two are really good friends." I started the conversation, she blushed when I said his name.

"Yeah, he's such a sweet guy." She smiled. I got her, I cracked her, found her weak spot. So much for her being shy around me.

"Yeah, Niall and I are apart of Manchester Mixers." I told her.

"Oh, well don't bother with me, I'm not joining." Demi mixed some chemicals together.

"Why not? Joining would be perfect for you since you like Niall." I explained to her.

"I don't like Niall." She snapped at me.

"Really? That's why you blushed when I said his name and got all defensive about not liking him." I told her. As I said those words I finally realized what Niall saw in me when I got defensive about Harry. Demi was acting just like me.

"Listen, You like Niall and he likes you. It's obvious. I'll come by your dorm after school and take you to the club. You'll love it." I told her.

"Niall likes me?" Demi asked, her smiling getting bigger.

"Yep." I answered.

"Okay, well I'll check out your club and see if I like it, but you don't have to come by my dorm. I'll have Cher take me, we share a dorm." She replied.

"Yeah! Awesome! I would stay away from Cher, she's a bit controlling." I whispered.

"I know," Demi rolled her eyes, "I'm switching dorms soon."
