3. Just the Beginning

~Amber's POV~

When my alarm goes off the following morning, I roll out of bed and head to the bathroom to take a shower and get ready for school. I throw on a pair of dark wash jean capris and an off the shoulder shirt with the England flag. It's my favorite top and my aunt got it for me when she took a trip there. I curl my brown hair and put on a little make-up. I throw on a pair of red vans and head downstairs for breakfast.

I don't see either one of my parents so I fix myself a bowl of cereal and sit down in front of the TV. I grab the remote and turn the TV on to 'Saved By the Bell'. As the group of friends play pranks on each other, my mind wonders to the five boys. That's when it hits me. Ever since they started playing their little game, they always start going after the target on the second day. Even though I hate what they do to the girls', I'm actually interested to see who they decide to go after this year.

When I finish my cereal, I turn the TV off and put the bowl in the sink. I head upstairs to my room and grab my stuff for school. I don't want to take the bus to school so I set out on the ten minute walk. When I get there, I don't see the girls sitting on the steps so I walk to my locker and put my things away and grab my items for History. On my way to the room, I run into Keaton.

"Hey Keaton." "Hey Amber. Where you headed?" "History class. Care to join me?" "Sure." We walk for a minute without talking. "How did your first day go?" He asks. "It was ok." I say. "How come?" "Just a group of guys. It's no big deal." "You mean the five who hook up with girls and then break their hearts?" He asks. "Yeah. How'd you know who I was talking about?" "I overheard a friend yesterday say something about them." He responds. "Well let me tell you everything." Keaton nods his head signaling for me to go on. I explain to Keaton about when they started 'The Game' and how a winner is determined. By this time, we have made it to the room and I put my books on my desk and we walk back through the halls heading outside. 

"That is just sick! So have you ever been the target?" "Nope and I hope I never am." "I hope so too. I can't imagine anyone treating a girl the way they do." "They never say who the target is. The only way everyone finds out who the target is, is by watching the guys to see who they flirt with and follow around." I tell him. "I'll keep my eyes open and let you know if I find out." "Thanks." "So any ideas of who the girl will be?" We are now standing on the school steps. I take a little while to think through who the guys would possibly go after. "Probably one of the cheerleaders." I answer. Before either one of us can say anything else, my friends arrive and I introduce them to Keaton. When the warning bell rings, we separate and head to our different classes.

I walk into class and notice that all five of them are already here and smiling at me. I take my seat behind Louis. They all turn around and say good morning to me in unison. "Let's get something straight. Don't any of you ever talk to me." I say sternly. They turn back around and I hear Harry quietly say to himself, "Feisty." I ignore what he says and pay attention to the teacher who has started class.

When I'm on my way to my locker, I hear them talking right behind me. I grab my materials for Algebra 2 out quickly and head to class before Liam can offer to walk with me. When he walks in, he heads straight for me. I groan quietly and wish for the teacher to walk in so he doesn't get the chance to talk with me. Unfortunately, my wish doesn't come true.

"How was your summer Amber?" "Didn't I explain to you not to talk to me?" I ask Liam. "Yes but..." "No buts. Just go sit down Payne." I say interrupting him. Just then the teacher walks in before Liam can say another word, so he takes his seat.

~Liam's POV~

I walk to school reminding myself of the plan to win over Amber. "Just be nice and strike up a conversation." I said aloud a couple of times. I reach school and begin looking for Amber in hopes to talk with her before the others show up. Unfortunately, I never find her. I hear the warning bell and walk to class with a smile on my face knowing I'll see her. I walk in and take my seat. Louis and Harry are already here so I begin talking with them. Shortly, Zayn and Niall walk in and take their seats. 

I continue to keep up the conversation as I glance over at the door. When I see her, I get quiet and smile. The boys must have noticed the change in me because they got quiet to. Amber took her seat behind Louis and we all turned around and said good morning to her in unison. "Let's get something straight. Don't any of you ever talk to me." She says. We turn around and Harry mumbles something but I can't hear it.

After class, we walk right behind Amber on our way to our lockers and talk. She quickly grabs her things for Algebra 2 and walks to class right before I offer to walk with her. 'At least I can talk with her during class.' I think and walk toward the room. 

I walk in the room and head straight to where Amber is sitting. "How was your summer Amber?" "Didn't I explain to you not to talk to me?" She asks me. "Yes but..." "No buts. Just go sit down Payne." She says interrupting me. The teacher walks in and I take my seat.

After class, I notice Amber trying to gather her materials quickly. I rush over to her before she can leave. "So you never answered my question." I say to her and we head to our lockers. She is silent for a moment and then says, "It was fine." "What did you?" "Worked on my soccer skills for tryouts next week." She responds. My smile drops a little. 'Soccer? Louis plays soccer and if they both make the team, he'll get to spend loads of time with her. I have to do something.' "I could help you out if you wanted." I offer. "What do you mean?" "I like to run and in soccer you have to run back and forth on the field. We could run together so you can get faster." By this time, we are at our lockers. She doesn't respond and I keep quiet due to the fact that Harry and Zayn are around. I don't want them to know about my plan. Right before I head to my next class, I lean over and whisper in her ear, "Think about it."

~Amber's POV~

After class, I try to get my books together quickly so I don't have another run in with Liam. He rushes over to me though. "So you never answered my question." He says as we head to our lockers. I'm silent because I don't want to answer but figure since he is being nice the least I can do is be nice as well. "It was fine." "What did you?" "Worked on my soccer skills for tryouts next week." I respond. I notice his smile drop a little and he doesn't saying anything for a moment. "I could help you out if you wanted." He offers and I'm shocked. "What do you mean?" "I like to run and in soccer you have to run back and forth on the field. We could run together so you can get faster." By this time, we are at our lockers. I don't respond and Liam doesn't continue talking. I notice Harry and Zayn and definitely don't want them to get the idea that they can talk to me. Right before Liam heads to his next class, he leans over and whispers in my ear, "Think about it."

As I walk to Creative Writing, I think about what Liam said. He does have a point. I could use some work on my speed but how do I know that it's not a trick? I take my seat next to Louis and pull out the assignment from yesterday. "I like your shirt." He says. "Thanks." I say quietly and then our teacher stands up ready to start class.

"Ok class, please pass the assignment from yesterday forward." Once all the papers have been passed forward, she picks them up and talks about the next assignment. "I would like each of you to write a poem about nature. It can be about the sun, a river, animals, or nature in general. Have this done by the beginning of the period tomorrow because we will read them out loud." She sits down at her desk and I pick up my purple pen to begin writing.

I quickly glance at Louis and see him writing furiously. It takes me a while to figure out exactly what I want to talk about but when I do, I begin writing. I get lost in my writing and jump a little when I hear the bell ring. I hear Louis chuckle a little as I gather up my things. 

"How's your poem coming?" He asks. "Good." I say. He walks next to me on our way to our lockers. I don't want to talk to him but I am interested to know what he's writing about. "What is your poem about?" "Just how nature affects people's lives." He responds. Instantly I imagine what might be happening in his poem. We both open our lockers just as the rest of his friends show up. I grab my books for Science and then close my locker and lean up against it. I sigh and the boys look at me. "You alright?" Niall asks from a few lockers down. I nod my head and then stand up straight. I look at Louis who is smiling and smile. "Can't wait to hear your poem." I say and walk off to class.

~Louis's POV~

When I get to school, I meet up with Harry at the lockers. We begin talking and head to class. Later, Liams walk in and joins the conversation. A few seconds later, Niall and Zayn walk in as well. I notice Liam glancing over at the door and then he smiles and becomes quiet. I look over at the door and see why. We all get quiet and smile. Amber takes her seat behind me. We turn around and say good morning in unison. "Let's get something straight. Don't any of you ever talk to me." She says and we turn around. Something escapes Harry's mouth but I don't catch what it is.

We walk right behind Amber as we talk once class is over. Once we get to our lockers, she switches her books out quickly and leaves. I might not have gotten to talk with her but I certainly will during third period.

I sit down in my seat in Creative Writing and wait for Amber to arrive. When she does, she sits down next to me and gets yesterdays assignment out. "I like your shirt." I say. "Thanks." She says quietly and then our teacher stands up ready to start class.

"Ok class, please pass the assignment from yesterday forward." Once all the papers have been passed forward, she picks them up and talks about the next assignment. "I would like each of you to write a poem about nature. It can be about the sun, a river, animals, or nature in general. Have this done my the beginning of the period tomorrow because we will read them out loud." She sits down at her desk. I already know what I'm going to write about so I pick up my pen and begin writing.

A couple minutes before class ends, I pack up my things and glance over at Amber. She is still writing and seems to be in her own little world. The bell rings and she jumps. I pick up my things and chuckle a little as she picks up her stuff.

"How's your poem coming?" I ask. "Good." She says. I walk next to her on our way to our lockers. She doesn't say anything for a moment but then speaks up. "What is your poem about?" "Just how nature affects people's lives." I respond without giving too much away. I can't tell her that it's about two people being brought together. That would ruin the surprise tomorrow and she might not fall for me then. We both open our lockers just as the rest of my friends show up. She grabs her books for Science and then closes her locker and leans up against it. I hear her sigh and we look at her. "You alright?" Niall asks from a few lockers down. She nods her head and then stands up straight. Amber looks at me and smiles. "Can't wait to hear your poem." She says and walks off to class.

"What did she mean by that?" Zayn asks. "I don't know exactly. We have to write a poem for class and she asked me what mine is about." I reply. Then we all head off to our next class.

~Amber's POV~

I sit down at my lab table and wait for Harry to join me so we can start on the lab. When he does walk in, he comes straight to the table and sits down.

"How are you today Amber?" I keep quiet and pull out the equipment. "Not talking to me are we?" I nod my head to signify that I'm not planning on talking to him. "But you were talking to Louis." He says and I shrug my shoulders. He finally gets started on the lab.

We are waiting for the filtration to get done when I feel a hand on my butt and I know exactly whose hand it is. "Harry." I say sternly. He just looks at me and grins. I pull his hand away and say, "Keep your hands off of me." "And if I don't?" "Then I'll just hit you in the balls." "Wouldn't be the first I got hit there." He says with a cheeky smile. I groan and we go back to working on the lab.

As I'm writing down the data, I drop my pencil and begin to reach for it but I stop. 'Better not Amber. Harry might grab your butt again.' I say to myself. Instead, Harry reaches down and picks up my pencil. "Here you go." He says and hands me my pencil. "Thanks." I reply. I finish writing the data down and then we clean up. I look to where Keaton is at and he is done as well. I grab my stuff and walk over to Keaton.

When the bell rings, I pull him out of the room quickly hoping that Harry won't catch up. Keaton tells me he will meet me in the lunchroom and then heads to his locker. I start to put in my combination when I feel someone behind me. "Why won't you talk to me?" He says next to my ear. A shiver is sent down my spine from his warm breath. "Because you're annoying." I say and open my locker. I place my books in the locker, close it, and turn around. Harry takes a step closer to me causing my back to hit my locker. "C'mon Amber. I just want to be friends. Give me a chance? Please?" He says. I look over his shoulder and the rest of the boys are staring at us. "No. And leave me alone." I say and push him away. I walk past the boys and to the lunch room.

I grab some food and sit down with my friends at a table. "So how has your day been Amber?" Bree says. "One word. Bad." "The boys?" Mikayla questions. I nod and then tell them what has happened today. I leave out the part where Liam offered to help me with soccer and how I can't wait to hear Louis's poem. "Ignore them. They're just players anyway." Briley says. I tell her that I've been trying and we all finish our lunch.

~Harry's POV~

After Amber heads to class, the lads and I talk for a few minutes before heading to our own classes. When I walk into Science, I walk straight to where Amber is at and sit down.

"How are you today Amber?" She keeps quiet and pulls out the equipment. "Not talking to me are we?" She nods her head to signify that she's not planning on talking to me. "But you were talking to Louis." I say and she shrugs her shoulders. I finally get started on the lab.

'Put your plan into action Harry. Just get touchy with her.' I think to myself. We are waiting for the filtration to get done when I put a hand on Amber's butt. "Harry." She says sternly. I just look at her and grin. She pulls my hand away and says, "Keep your hands off of me." "And if I don't?" "Then I'll just hit you in the balls." "Wouldn't be the first I got hit there." I say with a cheeky smile. She groans and we go back to working on the lab.

As Amber writes down the data, I notice she drops her pencil. She begins to reach for it but stops. Instead, I reach down and pick up the pencil. "Here you go." I say and hand the pencil back. "Thanks." She replies. Amber finishes writing the data down and then we clean up.She grabs her stuff and walks over to her friend, Keaton.

When the bell rings, I see her pull him out of the room quickly. She starts to put in her combination when I walk up and stand behind her. "Why won't you talk to me?" I say next to her ear. "Because you're annoying." Amber says and opens her locker. She places the books in the locker, closes it, and turns around. I take a step closer causing her back to hit her locker. "C'mon Amber. I just want to be friends. Give me a chance? Please?" I say. "No. And leave me alone." She says and pushes me away. I turn around and see her walk past the boys to the lunch room.

"What was that all about Harry?" Zayn asks. "Oh. Just talking." I say and we head to the lunch room for lunch.

~Amber's POV~

I get my books for Spanish and head to class. Thankfully I haven't ran into any of the boys yet. In class, the teacher gives us a seating chart. And thanks to her, I'm sitting right behind Niall. This day is just getting worse by the minute.

After class, I feel someone put their arm around my shoulders. I look over and Niall is smiling at me. I remove his arm from where it's at. "Why did you do that?" He asks. "Because I don't want you touching me. Let alone talking to me." "Hey. What did I do to you?" "You've been annoying me." I say. "Have not. I've barely talked to you. Speaking of which, I want to learn more about you Amber." "No way." I say and rush off to my locker.

~Niall's POV~

In Spanish, the teacher gives us a seating chart. Lucky for me, she put Amber right behind me. This day just got better.

Once class is over, I put my arm around Amber's shoulder as we walk out of the room. She looks at me and I smile. She removes my arm from where it is. "Why did you do that?" I ask. "Because I don't want you touching me. Let alone talking to me." "Hey. What did I do to you?" "You've been annoying me." She says. "Have not. I've barely talked to you. Speaking of which, I want to learn more about you Amber." "No way." She says and rushes off to our lockers.

~Amber's POV~

When I get to my locker, Zayn and Liam are standing at their's talking. I ignore what they are saying and put my stuff away before heading to the auditorium for Drama.

I find Keaton instantly and we start talking. I notice the boys walk in right before the bell rings. The teacher tells us we'll be doing some improv and he will be choosing the actors.

He chooses the first scene to be a family scene. A girl name Missy is the mom, Liam is the dad, Harry, Niall, and I are the kids, and Louis is the pet dog. I look over at Keaton and he tells me to go ahead but that he'll watch the boys closely.

I get up on stage and we start the scene. Louis stays next to me and Missy says, "I'm going to the store. You kids behave for Daddy." "Yes Mother." I say and the other two nod their heads. Missy walks off the stage and I begin to wonder if something was said to her. "Who wants to play tag?" Liam asks. Harry and Niall raise their hands and I just sit there. "Amber?" He asks. "Fine." I say.

Liam is it and we all start running from him. Even Louis who is following me. Liam tags Niall and Niall tries to tag me but I run away. He then goes after Harry and I stand on the other side of the stage. Louis is now next to Harry. Once Harry gets tagged, he tags the "dog" and whispers something. Next thing I know, Louis is running towards me and tackles me to the ground. Niall yells, "Doggy pile!" and him and Harry get on top of me. Liam tries to get them off of me but gets knocked down as well. "Get off of me!" I shout but they don't. Then our teacher says, "Alright. That's enough." The boys stand up and Louis pulls me up. I stomp down the stairs and sit next to Keaton.

"I can't believe they did that." He says. "I believe they planned that before I got on stage." He shrugs his shoulders. We talk as there are others scenes happening on stage.

~Amber's POV~

When the bell rings, Keaton walks me to my locker and waits for me to get my books for English. We then walk toward our last period class. I say goodbye to Keaton and take my seat. Shortly, Zayn walks in and takes his seat. I really want to talk to him but I don't at the same time. I don't want him to laugh about what happened with his friends.

Right as I'm about to say something, the teacher stands up and starts class. Once done teaching, we are given our assignment. "Imagine yourself back in the west. There are wagons instead of cars. You and your family have to move to a new place because of all the new settlers. I would like for each of you to write three letters to a family member about your trip. And you will be reading these during class tomorrow."

He sits down and we are allowed to work on our assignment. I pull out my notebook and a blue pen. "Any idea what you're going to write about?" A familiar voice says. I look over to Zayn and say, "Kinda. All I know so far is that I'm going to have lots of siblings." "Wow. How many?" "Not sure yet. You?" "Not really. Can you give me any ideas?" He asks. I look down and blush a little but then face him again. "Maybe you could right about your feelings of moving and meeting a new friend." I tell him. "I might just do that." He says and begins writing.

I open up the notebook to a clean page and start writing. When I get done with the first letter, I look over at Zayn again. He seems to be on his second letter and stuck. "Hey Zayn?" "Yeah." He says and looks at me. "Can I ask you a question?" "Sure. Anything." "Why do you act differently?" I question. I notice him raise his eyebrow. "What do you mean Amber?" "Well, it's just that you seem so shy without your friends around. Why is that?" "I've always been like this Amber. It took me quite a while to make friends with the lads. I never have a lot to say so I guess that's why I can seem shy to others." "Oh." I say. "Why do you ask?" He says. The bell rings and I grab my things and head to our lockers.

I hear running behind me and assume it's Zayn. He grabs my arm and turns me around. "Why did you ask?" He repeats. I shrug my shoulders and change the topic as we walk to our lockers. I stop talking as we approach the boys who are at their lockers. I open my locker and get my homework out. I stop suddenly when I feel someone's breath next to my ear. "Still can't wait to hear my poem?" I look over and Louis is smiling at me. I ignore him and get all my stuff together before leaving. I hear the guys yell goodbye after me and I take the bus home.

~Zayn's POV~

I see Amber walk out with her friend. The lads and I walk to our lockers. I keep quiet as they laugh about the scene they had to do. We grab our books and head in different directions. I walk in and take my seat next to Amber.

The teacher stands up and starts class. Once done teaching, we are given our assignment. "Imagine yourself back in the west. There are wagons instead of cars. You and your family have to move to a new place because of all the new settlers. I would like for each of you to write three letters to a family member about your trip.

All I know so far is that I'm going to have lots of siblings." "Wow. How many?" "Not sure yet. You?" "Not really. Can you give me any ideas?" I ask. She looks down momentarily but then looks back at me. "Maybe you could right about your feelings of moving and meeting a new friend." She tells me. "I might just do that." I say and begin writing.

"Hey Zayn?" I hear Amber say. "Yeah." I say and look at her. "Can I ask you a question?" "Sure. Anything." "Why do you act differently?" She questions. I raise my eyebrow in a bit of confusion. "What do you mean Amber?" "Well, it's just that you seem so shy without your friends around. Why is that?" "I've always been like this Amber. It took me quite a while to make friends with the lads. I never have a lot to say so I guess that's why I can seem shy to others." "Oh." She says. "Why do you ask?" I say. The bell rings and she grabs her things and heads to our lockers.

I pick up my things and run after her. I grab her arm and turn her around. "Why did you ask?" I repeat. Amber shrugs her shoulders and changes the topic as we walk to our lockers. She stops talking as we approach the boys who are at their lockers. I see her open her locker and get what I presume to be her homework out. She stops when Louis leans over and whispers something in her ear. She looks at him and he is smiling. She finishes getting things out of her locker. As she leaves, we all tell her goodbye but she continues walking.

~Amber's POV~

When I get home, I throw my school bag on my bed and change into a pair of running clothes and running shoes. I put my hair in a ponytail before grabbing my ipod and heading downstairs. My mom asks where I'm going and I tell her for a run. I walk outside and turn my music on. When I find a song I like, I start running.

I run to the park and continue running through it. Suddenly, I run into someone and fall to the ground. I take out my ear buds and the person says, "I'm sorry." The person reaches a hand down to help me up and I take it. Once I'm back on my feet again, I brush the dirt off and look up.

Standing there is someone I didn't expect to see.
