I Know You're There

At every single school, there's always an emo that gets bullied. The one at Tori's school is different. He still gets bullied, and he never speaks, and no one ever sees him outside of school. There are rumours. Many of them. The main one, his parents have abandoned him. Tori starts suspecting that he lives in the abandoned house next to hers. As she starts getting close to him, and unveiling the horrific truth, she realised his pure beauty. If only everyone else could too...


6. 'Just considerate it a first date.'

Walking quite swiftly, I pushed the metal gate of the park open, letting it swing closed behind me. In the short amount of time I had, I'd gotten changed, and walked as quickly as I could without looking weird. Cade's hoody still smelt like him, and reached my mid thighs and the sleeves were well past my hands. It was massive, and I didn't care.

"Hey," he smiled, when I walked up to him.

He was sitting on one of the swings, staring at a piece of paper. I was tempted to ask him what was on it, but I avoided it.

"Hey," I replied, sitting on the swing next to him. I didn't really make an effort to swing, and just sat there, my hands buried in my pockets.

"So, why didn't you go to the club?" he looked at me through his dark hair.

"Uh... I don't know. Didn't want to," I told him, hiding the real answer. I'd be embarrassed if he found out I was blackmailed by Ollie. That's pathetic.

"Oh..." he glanced away, but looked back again, studying my face.

"What?" I tried not to smile, but I couldn't help it. He was just gazing at me.

"Sorry," he blinked and fixed his stare on something in the distance.

It was quite quiet from then on, but it was comfortable. If it was one of my other friends, they'd be peeving me with random gossip that I didn't give a care about.  All they do is create their own little dramas and then fuss over how they wish society wasn't a drama studio. They bloody well create it. They are society.

My phone buzzed but I ignored it. It was probably one of my so called friends asking where the hell I was; having a good time. It was Friday evening, and almost dark. The sky was turned a darker blue. It was only around 5:30. My parents weren't really expecting me home until 10:00, so I'd be fine.

In the midst of the peaceful quietness, my stomach growled.

"Hungry?" Reuben laughed.

"Yeah, kinda, but I'm fine," I giggled off my embarrassment.

Some adults sat on the benches, watching their kids play about on the various apparatus. It was sweet, watching kids who knew nothing about reality enjoying their lives. When I was little, all I wanted was to grow up. Then, when I was sixteen, all I wanted was to be a kid again.

"You sure? We can go Nando's if you want?" he smiled sweetly, and my heart melted.

"I don't have any money," I blushed.

"I'll pay, c'mon," he stood up, looking down at me, and held his hand out to me.

Smiling, I slipped my hand into his, and he filled the gaps between my fingers with his. His hands were warm, compared to my numb hands. He smiled too, and gave my hand a soft squeeze. I squeezed his back, and stood up.

"Thanks," I blushed again.

"No problem, just considerate it a first date," we started walking.

I was grinning to myself like an idiot. Reuben was so confident out of school. School ruined him. Like I said, society is a tough place, but remember, we're all society.
