Friends will test each other on different levels than ever expected.


11. Expect the Unexpected

Chapter 11: Expect the Unexpected

            We live in a world full of hate. No matter what we do or say people will despise you. They will be jealous, rude, and full of hate. No matter whom you are, what you do, and how you say it, the haters are everywhere waiting to ruin you.

            “Hey Morgan, I heard what you and Niall did last night.” A guy says walking by me. What did me and Niall do last night? I didn’t even see him. The last time we saw each other was last week. I pick up my phone and call Niall.

            “Hello?” He answers. “Niall, what are you telling people?” There is a long pause and then he finally responses, “I haven’t told anyone anything.” I roll my eyes. Niall obviously told people something. “Goodbye Niall.” I hang up the phone and run to my locker.

            I get to my locker and open it to grab my stuff so I can go home. I can’t be here. I defiantly don’t want to see Niall either. I turn around, closing my locker, but end up bumping into someone. My books go flying everywhere once again and now I am on the floor picking everything up.  A boy bends down along side me, he lifts his head, and it was Louis. “I am so sorry.” I say holding back the tears. I scurry to pick up the books, binders, and papers. He hands me a few and helps me to my feet.

            “Are you alright?” He says stopping me from walking away.

            I shake my head, “Yeah, I’m good.” He takes my hand and he walks me outside where it is quite.

            “I don’t think you are fine,” He stands in front of me as his beautiful blue eyes look into my eyes, “What’s wrong love?”

            “Nothing is wrong.” He rolls his eyes and chuckles, “Don’t give me that crap,” He laughs and wipes my tears away. I smile at him and laugh at myself. “I would feel bad for you." He pulls me in for a hug and tears start to fall harder and faster. This is so embarrassing, I barely know the kid and I am crying into his shoulder. This isn’t good. I pull away and thank him. I start to walk into the parking lot when I hear footsteps coming after me. I turn expecting to see Niall, but it was Louis again.

            “I forgot to ask, I would like to get to know you. Would you like to join me for like… I don’t know dinner, or something?” I smile and nod, “I would love to. Here, put your number in and I will text you,” I handed him my phone and he puts his number in. I open his contact and send him message. His phone beeps and he gives me the thumbs up. “So, I will see you tonight. I will text you during class and we will figure it out. I hope you feel better, love.” I nod smiling, “Thank you. I will keep in touch with you. See you later.” I wave and get into my car. I take a deep breath or a 'sigh of relief' and lean on my steering wheel. I put the keys into the ignition and start to drive home. I pick up my phone and dial my mom’s number.

            “Hi sweetie,” She says quickly answering the phone.

            “Hello Mother. I left school early, people are spreading rumors." .” I hear her huff on the other end of the phone, “Okay, I will tell them you went home early because you weren’t feeling well.” I turn into the driveway and thank my mom. “You’re welcome honey. Just please don’t let the rumors get to you.”

            “I know mom, and I am going out to dinner tonight with my friend.” I get out of the car and pull out my keys to unlock the front door. “Who is your friend?” She says happily. “Louis.” I open the door and throw my purse onto the couch and walk into the kitchen. “You’re going to dinner with another boy?” She says now sounding a little concerned. “Mom, he is just my friend. I barely know him. We wanted to get to know each other better so we decided to go to dinner. Hey, I have to go. I will call you later. Love you.” She says goodbye and I hang up. I open my messages on my phone and click Louis’s name. I start to type, “Hey” when he sends the message first. I smile excited to hang out with someone new. We start texting back and forth non-stop. We just rambled on about random things from cats to farm tractors. Weird isn’t it? We decided on going out to dinner then out for ice cream later. He is going to pick me up at a quarter till' seven. I look at the clock, its 12:30. I lie down and take a long needed nap.

            I wake up at six skipping lunch. I get up really out of it, almost falling over. I scurry upstairs into my room. I change my outfit to a cute $240 Acne Studios white sweater, along with Aztec print leggings and button down grey Ugg boots. I throw my hair up into a messy ponytail and put on a necklace I got from Hawaii. I put on glittering black top liner and a little mascara. I look at my phone, 6:43. I run downstairs and sit on the couch and wait.

            Finally the doorbell rings, so I grab my things and open the door. I am shocked to find Louis standing there with Niall, Harry, Liam, and Zayn.

           I stand in shock, “What are they all doing here? I thought it was going to be just us?” I take a step back, away from the door. “We all need to work things out and we need you to know that we five are all best friends.” Louis says gesturing his hand. I sigh and take his hand. I am not excited for this dinner, at all.
