They Don't Know About Us

"What is the difference between us anyway?" I practically yell. "The difference," he says, "is that I love you."

Lily Roberts is an upcoming star, Niall Horan is part of the biggest boy band in the world, what will happen when they are forced to date for publicity?


5. Chapter Four


“Oh uh, he’s just some kid from school that keeps bothering me.” I say. Luckily he was asleep last night so he didn’t see anything about me and Niall.

“Want me to text him back?” He asks.

“No!” I yell. “I mean uh no I’ll handle it.” I say. He shrugs and hands me my phone. We pull up to the school and quickly park. As I was running through the halls I hear the bell ring. I was late. I walk into class and see the class turn and stare at me like I killed someone. I take my seat quickly.

“Nice to see you have decided to join us today Miss Roberts.” The teacher says. I nod.

“Where have you been?” Zoey asks.

“My brother woke me up at the last minute.” I whisper.

“Yeah, I can tell. You look terrible.” She says.

“Oh well great thanks.” I say. Guess I won’t be talking to Michael today. I turn around and I pull out my phone and text Niall back.

‘Hey, I can’t today. I’m going to my friend’s basketball game.’ I respond.

“Miss Roberts is there something you would like to share with the class?” The teacher asks. I shake my head. He walks over to me. I sneakily delete all my text messages before he gets to my desk.

“Phone, now.” He demands. I hand him my phone and he walks back up to the front. After the bell rings I walk up to the front to retrieve my phone.

“May I please have my phone back?” I ask.

“No, I have decided to keep it until a parent or guardian comes and talks to me first.” He says. I roll my eyes and walk out the door. I see Zoey and Ali and walk up to them.

“You get your phone back?” Zoey asks.

“No I have to bring a parent or guardian to come and talk to him.” I say mimicking his voice.

“About what?” Ali asks.

“I don’t know! Just about me texting in class I guess. This is the first time he’s caught me.” I say. “It’s so unfair.” I mutter under my breath.

“You can borrow my phone to call your parents if you want?” Ali says. I nod and take her phone to call my mom. No answer. If I call my dad, he will be mad. I call Josh, I mean he is taller than me and he has never had my teacher before. It could work.

“Hello?” He answers.

“Josh where are you?” I ask.

“Lily? Uh I’m by my locker. Why?” He asks.

“Because I need the biggest favor from you.” I say. He sighs.

“Fine. Hurry.” He says and hangs up. I hand the phone back to Ali.

“See ya at lunch!” I wave to them as I run down the hall. I see Josh by his locker and pull him with me walking fast.

“What do you need me to do?” He asks.

“I got my phone taken away for texting in class and he won’t give it back until he talks to mom or dad so you have to pretend to be dad.” I say.

“Um, I don’t look like dad.” He says.

“He has never met dad so we should be fine.” I say. We walk into the English class and I walk up to Mr. Johnson’s desk.

“Okay my dad is here can I have my phone now?” I ask. He looks over at Josh.

“That’s your dad?” He asks. I nod. “If that’s your dad, how did he get here so fast?” He asks.

“We live really close to the school.” I say. He clears his throat.

“A word?” He asks Josh and walks out of the room. I can’t believe he was actually buying this. A few minutes after the bell rings they both come back inside. He looks in his desk and hands me my phone. I smile and walk out seeing Josh standing there.

“You owe me big time for being late to class.” He says wagging his finger at me. I nod.

“No problem.” I say. I rush over to History and walk in.

“Miss Roberts you’re late.” Mrs. Barron says.

“Yeah, yeah. I know.” I say walking to my seat. As I take out my history book I hear someone talking to me.

“That’s the second time today. You’re on a roll.” They say. I look up and see it was Michael. This was the first time all year he has talked to me. I smile.

“It’s my specialty.” I say. He laughs.

“Michael, class is this way.” Mrs. Barron says. He rolls his eyes and turns around. I laugh. I feel my phone vibrate. I sneakily take it out and read the text.

‘Oh well George said we should probably do something together today.’ Niall texted. I silently sigh.

‘um, okay. I guess I can see one of her other games.’ I respond. I quickly put my phone back in my backpack. Sooner or later the bell rings. I walk to my locker to put my things away. Zoey and Ali come up to me.

“Did you get your phone back?” Ali asks. I hold it up.

“Yeah. Barely though.” I say. It vibrates in my hand. I look and read it.

‘okay so um, what do you want to do?’

‘I don’t care whatever is fine.’ I respond.

“Who was that?” Zoey asks.

“Just Niall.” I say.

“Oooooo.” Zoey and Ali say in unison.

“Shut up.” I laugh closing my locker. My phone starts ringing.

“Hello?” I answer.

“Hey, it’s easier to call you, um so do you want to meet me somewhere?” Niall asks awkwardly.

“Sure.” I say.

“Okay great. Um, I guess I’ll just text you the directions.” He says.

“Okay, see ya then.” I say and hang up.

“Who was that?” Ali asks.

“Why are you two getting all up in my business?” I ask.

“Because we are your best friends, we need to know.” Zoey says. I roll my eyes and smile.

“You will never guess what happened!” I say.

“What?” Zoey and Ali say in unison.

“So today, I was sitting in class and Michael talked to me!” I whisper to them.

“Why is that so exciting?” Ali asks.

“Because I like him?” I say as if they are stupid.

“But you’re dating Niall?” Zoey says confused. Crap.

“Yeah, of course… I was… just saying that’s what I would say…you know if I wasn’t dating Niall.” I say. They both look at me confused. “You know what, forget I said that.” I say. They shrug. Good they bought it, for now at least.
