The Game

Ever since the beginning of middle school, five guys have a game that they play. They hook up with girls and sleep with them. They'll break girls' hearts but sometimes they are lucky enough to get a girlfriend. This year, it's Amber's turn to participate in 'The Game'. Will she go along with it or reject the boys? And will she fall in love or get her hear broken?

14. Helping Out

~Amber's POV~

*Beep, Beep, Beep*

Ugh! I roll over and shut my alarm off. Why does it have to be Monday? All I want to do is sleep. I throw off the covers and drag my butt into the bathroom to get ready for the day. I put on a pair of dark wash jean shorts and an England shirt. I throw my hair up in a ponytail before putting on a pair of converse and going downstairs for breakfast.

"Smells good Mom." "Thanks Sweetie. What are your plans for after school?" "I've got soccer practice and then I'm gonna see if maybe Liam wants to run after that." "Just don't over do it. I don't want you getting hurt." "Relax Mom. I won't." We are both quiet as I eat pancakes and eggs. I tell my mom goodbye and then head off to school.

The first two people I see when I arrive, are Louis and Harry. 'Just great. Already off to a bad start.' I try my best to ignore them but they keep bringing me into the conversation. "Look guys'. We should probably get to class." I say after taking enough of them and needing to be in the presence of Liam and Zayn. I know crazy right? But they are my friends now. I walk to class with the boys on either side of me. When we get to class, they stop bugging me and start chatting with the others.

After third period, I meet up with Keaton and we chat while walking to Science. "Have the boys' been bugging you lately?" He asks. "Don't get me started. Louis and Harry were the first two people I saw this morning and they instantly started a convo with me. Then last period, Louis would not shut up. I wanted to punch him in the face." "Maybe Harry will be better." "As if. If anything, Harry is more annoying. Especially when he gets touchy." "Too bad we can't switch partners." He states. "I know." We walk in the room and go to our lab tables. Harry is already here.

"Hey Amber. I was wondering..." "No." "You don't know what I was gonna say." "Doesn't matter. The answer is still no." "Why..." "Alright class. Today you will be doing a lab." The teacher says interrupting Harry. He finishes giving us instructions and then sets us free. "As I was saying. Why wouldn't you dance with me at the party?" "Let it go Harry. Ok?" "No. I deserve an answer. And not one of you didn't feel like it cause I know that's bull." "I had my reasons alright?" "What were they? Why can't you just give me an answer Amber?" "I can't tell you Harry." "Why?" He asks. Ugh! Why won't he drop it? "You say one more word about the party and I'll punch you in the face." I threaten. "Alright. Calm down. Well then, how about having lunch with me today?" Ugh! When will he ever give up!?

The bell finally rings and I bolt out of the class. Keaton catches up with me at my locker. "Everything ok Amber?" "No! Harry would not quit bugging me!" "I'm sorry. Come on. Let's go to lunch." I nod my head and we go get some lunch. The whole time, I keep quiet. I do text Liam and ask him about running later today and thankfully he says yes. I now have something to look forward to.

I take my seat behind Niall and pray that he doesn't speak to me. Out of the five guys', Niall and I hardly even talk. I think he realizes I don't want to be friends with them. Well sorta cause now I'm friends with two of them. "Hey Amber." Niall says. "Hi." Before he can say anything else, our teacher walks in and greets us.

"Okay class, I have your quizzes grade and I'll be handing them back. Some of you did really well. Others of you not so good." Great. That means I probably didn't do good. She comes around handing everyone their quiz. "Excellent work Niall." She then looks down and says, "Amber." I take my quiz from her and see an F. I groan and Niall turns around. "Didn't do too well?" "Nope. I failed." "Oh." "Amber. Come here for a moment please." The teacher says. I walk over to her desk so she can talk to me. When I sit back down, I hit my head on my desk and groan. "Everything ok?" I hear Niall say. I sit up and look at him. "No. I failed the quiz and have an F in the class. If I don't do well on the test Friday and get my grade up by next weekend, I can't play soccer." "Oh. That is a problem." I nod my head. "Well...I could um help you." "What do you mean?" "I could be your tutor. I'm excellent at Spanish." "I have noticed how well you do in class. Ok I guess. You'll be my tutor. Just don't tell anyone alright?" "Promise." We go over the quiz and then spend the rest of class doing an activity with partners. Thankfully I agreed to be Niall's partner.

"So when do you want to start tutoring sessions?" Niall asks as we walk to Drama. "I can't do today. Does tomorrow at six work?" "Yes." We walk in to the auditorium and sit down with our friends. We don't do much since there is a sub. I'm grateful for that cause now I can relax.

~Niall's POV~

When I saw Amber at lunch, she looked annoyed. 'Harry must have been on her case last period.' I think to myself. Since we started 'The Game' two weeks ago, I've been trying to think of ways to get with Amber. Unfortunately, none of my plans get put into action. I can tell that she gets frustrated with Louis and Harry trying to win. I've given up on 'The Game'. Louis or Harry will win for sure. All I want now is to be friends with Amber.

In Spanish, we get our quizzes back. I'm not worried though. I'm very good at Spanish. When I get my quiz, I look at the grade but then hear a moan from behind me. I turn around and say, "Didn't do too well?" "Nope. I failed." "Oh." I feel kinda bad now. Our teacher calls Amber over to her desk to talk. Once they get done, Amber comes back to her desk putting her head down and groaning. 'Uh oh. That talk couldn't have been good.' "Everything ok?" I ask. She looks up at me and says, "No. I failed the quiz and have an F in the class. If I don't do well on the test Friday and get my grade up by next weekend, I can't play soccer." "Oh. That is a problem." I have to help her somehow. I could tutor her! "Well...I could um help you." "What do you mean?" "I could be your tutor. I'm excellent at Spanish." "I have noticed how well you do in class. Ok I guess. You'll be my tutor. Just don't tell anyone alright?" "Promise." When we do an activity, I ask Amber to be my partner and surprisingly she agrees. 'Hopefully this is the start of a friendship.'

As we walk to Drama, we discuss when to start the first session. I was hoping for today but I now she has soccer practice and it's a little late notice. I'm just glad I'll get to spend some time with her.
