8. Chapter Seven


I just sit there until my phone rings. It was my mom.

“Hello?” I answer nervously.

“Get over here now.” She says sternly. I hang up and drive over to my house. I walk up to the door and just stand there hesitant to open the door. I finally open it slowly and walk in. I make my way into the living room and see my parents waiting for me.

“You wanted to see me?” I say to my parents as innocent as possible.

“We saw what happened.” My mom says as calmly as possible.

“Saw what?” I ask.

“About you and this boy! How long have you known him? Why didn’t you tell us first? Probably because he’s a bad influence…” My dad rambles. I look at my mom to get her to make him stop talking.

“Um, I think you’ve made your point.” She says. He calmed down a bit. The phone started ringing.

“Well why don’t I get the phone and you two talk all this over.” I say making my way to the kitchen.

“Nope, whoever it is can leave a voicemail. You’re staying right here.” My dad says. I sigh and let it go to voicemail.

“Hi Mr. and Mrs. Roberts. This is Mr. Johnson, Lily’s English teacher…” The message starts. Uh-oh, double busted.

“I am calling because…” the message continued. I needed to interrupt the message.

“So dad how’s-” I start but my parents shush me.

“I have decided not to give Lily detention. I think she has gone through enough.” He says. What the heck did Josh tell him? “I am so sorry about your family’s divorce.” He finished. I guess that answers that question. I’m going to kill him.

“What is he talking about?” my mom asks.

“Psh, beats me, for all we know he could have the wrong number.” I say. My dad walks over to the phone and calls him back. He talked to him for quite some time when he came back in the room he looked madder than ever.

“What happened?” My mom asks.

“Lily got her phone taken away in class, probably texting that boy whoever he is, and so the teacher caught her and apparently had a discussion with ‘me’ saying that she was thinking about giving her detention but ‘I’ said to let her off easy because our family is getting spit up!” He yells. My mom looks at me with wide eyes.

“Who did you have impersonate your father?” My mom asks. I was silent.

“Josh! Get down here!” My dad yells. He comes down the stairs and knew he was in trouble once he saw our dad. He looked at me confused.

“I heard from Lily’s English teacher that he had talked to ‘me’. Would you like to say anything about this?” he asks.

“She made me do it!” Josh yells. Thanks bro. I’ll be sure to remember that when you need help. My dad turns back to me.

“That’s it, you’re grounded.” He says. I knew that was coming. I sigh.

“How long?” I ask.

“A week.” My mom says before my dad could give some unreasonable punishment. “But that is only for lying to us about your English teacher.” She finishes.

“We will decide about this boy later.” My dad says rubbing his head. “Just go to your room.” He says and waves me off. I walk back upstairs and Josh follows me.

“What boy?” Josh asks.

“Just some guy I’m seeing.” I say. I was mad at him for giving me up.

“Who?” He asks.

“None of your freaking business.” I say. I walk into my room and slam the door. I went and sat on my bed looking at my phone. I texted Zoey.

‘Got in trouble with my parents, sorry.’ I send.

‘Oh that sucks.’ She responds. I put my phone on the dresser and get ready for bed. My phone starts to vibrate. It was Niall.

“Hello?” I answer.

“Hey, I was wondering if we could change our date to tomorrow, I actually got off of working in the studio so we can hang out.” He says. I don’t care if I was grounded; this was for my music career.

“Yeah sure.” I say.

“Okay see you then.” He says and hangs up. I hide my phone so my parents won’t take it. I deleted all my texts and turned it off. The only problem is tomorrow is a Saturday. How will I get out of the house to see Niall? The next morning I walk downstairs and get some breakfast to take back up to my room. I would tell my parents but if I did they would definitely tell someone. I walk back up to my room without saying a word to my parents. I get dressed and ready for Niall and I’s date today. I finish my breakfast and bring my plate downstairs. I put it in the sink and walk back up to my room. I sit on my bed for a minute and start to think how to get out of the house. I look out my window and realize if I jump I’ll probably die. I grab my phone and quietly walk downstairs. I don’t see anyone in the living room or kitchen so I quietly open the door and shut it behind me. I dash for the car and try to open it. Crap I forgot the keys! I call up Zoey.

“Hello?” She answers.

“Hey I need a HUGE favor from you.” I say.

“Okay shoot.” She says.

“Okay I need you to pick me up and take me somewhere.” I say.

“Why?” She asks.

“I’m meeting Niall.” I say.

“But aren’t you grounded?” she asks.

“Yes.” I say.

“Then why are you-” she starts but I cut her off.

“Will you just come over and get me?” I ask.

“I guess so.” She says. I hang up and call Niall.

“Hello.” He says.

“Hey, where are we meeting?” I ask.

“How about the studio?” He suggests.

“Perfect. I’m headed over there now.” I say. I hang up and wait for Zoey to show up. I’m surprised my parents didn’t even know I was gone yet. I hop into her car and tell her directions to the studio. We get there and I see Niall standing waiting for me. I hop out and so does Zoey.

“Hi.” Niall says.

“Hi, I’m Zoey, Lily’s friend.” She introduces herself. Only Zoey…

“Nice to meet you.” He says.

“You too. Lily has told me a lot about you. Plus you’re in a really famous boyband.” She says. He laughs.

“Well bye Zoey.” I say pushing her back over to her car. She laughs and so does Niall. She hops into her car and drives off.

“So you’ve talked about me, eh?” He laughs. I push him and hop into his car.

“Where are we going?” I ask.

“It’s a surprise.” He says.

“Just tell meeeee!” I whine. He laughs.

“We will be there in a little bit.” He says. I sigh. I turn up the radio and Justin Bieber comes on. I start singing along and dancing. Niall gives me a weird look.

“What? Haven’t you ever sung along when you heard your favorite song come on?” I ask.

 “Yeah but I don’t dance.” He laughs. I smile. About 10 minutes later we arrive at a park, but it’s not the same one. He quickly gets out and comes to my side. I hop out and he covers my eyes. We start walking for a few minutes until he finally says, “We’re here.”
