Alone

He got along so well with her, they were obviously in love. Their parents thought they would get married when they grew older. When they became the age of 15, he needed new friends. She became lost, sad, and she didn't think of him again. She was never a popular kind of girl. She never had a lot of friends. She never was very pretty. Her life turned complete upside down. Until he walked back in it.

7. Chapter Six

We pulled up to the school, parking in the same spot near the old maple tree that lost it's leaves. Niall turned off the car and got out, going over to my side to open the door for me. I smiled at him and kissed his cheek. I overreacted. A lot. I feel bad now, I mean who cares! He had sex with her before we went out, that doesn't matter! All that I cared about was him. I just..ugh. I have so much going on right now, it would be nice to get a vacation. Good thing we have a three day break at the end of the week! Niall and I wou-

"LIZ? HELLO?" I shook my head as I heard Anthony's voice yelling beside me and the dull murmur of Chad and Niall in the background.

"Oh, Ant! Sorry, I was thinking about this weekend." He rolled his eyes and took me by the shoulders. 

"You'll never believe what happened." I looked at him, and then took a seat on a nearby bench because I knew this was going to be a long story. He chuckled and sat next to me, grabbing my hands to hold on to as if a lifesaver. 

"Are you okay?.," I raised my eyebrows, because he looked very serious. I didn't know what to expect, Ant was almost never serious.

"Chad, um. Okay, first, promise that you won't tell a single soul?" I gave him the infamous 'I-can't-believe-you-just-said-that-to-your-best-friend' look. He nodded his head and continued. "Chad, um. He, uh. He proposed to me and I said yes!" My mouth literally dropped and I screamed. This was a scream that I've never heard come out of me before. I didn't know if I was happy for Anthony or disappointed. Well, no. That was stupid. Of course I'm happy for him, but I've always grown up with the idea of marrying after college. And, supposively high school relationships don't last! "Li, Li. Breathe." I didnt realize that I wasn't breathing until he shook me by the shoulders.

"I-Anthony! That-that's great! I'm so happy for you! Have you told your parents yet?" At this time Chad came over and placed a hand on Anthony's shoulder. I smiled at them, they were happy but marriage was maybe a bit to far. 

"No, we haven't told them yet. You know they wouldn't encourage it, so we've decided to get married on the down low. Only you and Niall know now." I closed my eyes and shook my head.

"Anthony, I don't think that's a good idea. Marriage? Right now?! You're a senior! I mean, of course. I love you and all, but it's too early for this! And Chad, you're a great boyfriend for Anthony and maybe even husband in the future. And the key word in that is future! Please, I think you'll regret this." I looked at them solemnly and they just glared back. Anthony's face scared me the most. 

"Elizabeth, I can't believe you! I thought you out of all people would understand why I was doing this. I know you've been through a lot this past week, but can the spotlight not always be on you? Like, come on! You always have attention even though you walk alone. You always say you have no friends but people talk to you all the time. What the hell! Why can't you realize that this is what I want and this is about me? What is your problem with that!" Anthony stood up and yelled, causing me to jump. He never, ever has yelled at me before.

"Hey, don't yell at her!" Niall stepped in to pat Anthony's shoulder but Chad just shook his head no. I looked at him while tears formed in my eyes.

"Anthony, I'm sor-" 

"No." He picked up his bag off the concrete and slung it over his shoulder. Chad linked his arm and looked at Niall apologetically. I on the other hand got up and fled. Tears poured out of my eyes and it was hard not to notice due to the strange dying cat noise that escaped my mouth. Niall immediately chased after me, catching up to me after I had ran so far I collapsed on the plush grass. Niall moved next to me and held me in his lap, his head resting on mine.

He rubbed my back and whispered to me, "He was just upset, it will be over soon." I just sobbed and sobbed. Anthony has never, never ever gotten mad at me like that! He'll never forgive me. All I was trying to do was help him! He was completely wrong. I took deep breaths until words came out clearly.

"Niall, he just has never yelled at me like that." He nodded and kissed my forehead, wiping the tears that had fallen off my cheeks.

"I know, baby. He's just really emotional about the proposal. He's fine, okay? This will blow over and you guys will be best friends again." 

"But, he's not my best friend." Niall raised both of his eyebrows and his eyes looked into mine for some sort of explanation. "You are, remember?" He smiled and kissed my lips softly. 

"Well, the best friend that was there for you when I wasn't needs your corporation. So please, just be lenyant with him for now, okay?" I nodded and kissed Niall again. His kisses never got old. He stood up and pulled me up with him, wrapping his arm tightly around me. I took deep breaths trying to collect myself as we walked back to the school. I collected my bag off the ground and pushed open the glass doors. Anthony was near his locker and Chad was holding him, I guess Anthony was crying too. I wiped the few tears out from under my eyes and walked to my locker. I would give him time to sort himself out. Niall followed me closely, eyeing the couple as we walked past. The beasts were at my locker and I guess they didn't know something somewhat obvious. 

"Oh my god, girly's here again. She got the nicest ass! That will be the death of me, yeah?" The other boys laughed and nodded. I rolled my eyes and shoved through them to my locker. Niall stood farther away, near the concrete wall. I turned my lock, minding my own business. Right then I felt a huge hand fall on my bum harshly and I screamed.  My eyes grew big and the guys laughed harder. 

"WHAT THE FUCK?" Niall's face was scarily dark red and he walked over to the boys in a rush. They were shocked and took steps away from me and him. 

"Dude, Niall it's just a gir-." Niall stepped up right in front of Tom, the one talking.

"Bitch ass cunt, shut the hell up. That is not just a girl. That's my girlfriend. So why don't you touch her again, see what happens?" Tom looked at Niall in pure shock, and then burst into laughter. I rolled my eyes in anger. What the fuck is wrong with me. Niall lunged out and punched him straight in the eye, causing him to fall back against the lockers. The group shut up and everyone else did too. "Leave her alone, all of you." With that he walked towards me and grabbed my hand. I felt tears brimming my eyes, and I pulled away slowly. 

"I'm sorry, I cause so much shit in your life." I closed my locker and walked towards first period. I knew tears were rolling down my cheeks but I pushed them away. Maybe being with Niall wasn't right. Maybe I was wrong to think it would work.
