The Mistake I Made

Hi my names Julie. I am only 17 years old and work at Holmes Chapel bakery, yes the one that the one and only Harry Styles used to work at, emphasis on the “used to”. I am a huge One Direction fan and so is my best friend Mina which makes us even closer. We always hope that maybe one day he might walk in to check in to see the shop, but that hasn’t happened for the past year.

That was so nice of Harry to do that and I walked into my next class with a little more confidence in me. I will not let them ruin my day. I will not let them ruin my day. I kept repeating to myself as I walked into class and got into my seat. “Aw Julie it looks like you’ve been crying, wimp” Francesca said to me. I was still in a fragile state so I could feel the tears coming but I held them back. That class wasn’t so bad and there was one class left then I got to go home, finally. Veronica and her posse weren’t in my last class so I was very happy about that and it went by pretty quickly, thank god. As soon as the final bell rang I pretty much sprinted to where I meet Mina every day after school to take her home, and luckily she was there too. She must’ve known I wanted to go home quickly since today was terrible and I wasn’t at lunch with her and Cameron. “Hey how are you holding up” she asked while putting her arm around my shoulder and rubbed my arm.

“Eh I just really want to go home before anyone comes up and tried to talk to me” I told her.

“Okay let’s go” we started walking towards my car and got in and began driving away. When we were right about to leave the parking lot Veronica and her group pulled up right besides us with her blasting music of the song “Rock Me” of course and started making kissy faces and hipthrusts and shouted “SLUT!” and sped off. “Those bitches” Mina said “why can’t they just leave you alone I mean honestly couldn’t they do something better in their lives?”

“Harry came and spent lunch with me today.” I told her.

“Why? Did you tell him what happened?”

“Ya I did and he came to help me. It was really nice of him and he just comforted me and it helped a lot” I told her.

“That’s so nice of him and sweet. He’s good for you” she told me with a smile and I couldn’t help but smile back at her.

“Do you want to come over and do homework and stuff? I really don’t want to be alone” I asked sheepishly.

“Sure thing babe” she told me. A couple of minutes later we pulled up to my house and a big black SUV was outside my house but the lights were on inside. What the hell. I gave Mina a weird look and we walked up to my front door and unlocked it and walked in. “Hello?” I asked and started walking around. I kept walking forward till I got to the kitchen and saw Niall. “Niall? What are you doing here?” I asked him and he turned around with his mouth full of food and a soda in his hand. He spotted Mina and his eyes lit up almost immediately at her sight. I turned to my left and saw Zayn, Liam, and Louis sitting on my couch in the living room. “Guys what are you doing here? And how’d you get into my house?” none of them answered they just looked at me with a sad look in their eyes. Zayn got up and walked towards me and gave me a hug. I wanted to start crying again and slowly the tears came out of my eyes. He rubbed my back just how Harry did and whispered “shh it’s okay. You’ll be okay” and that just made me cry even harder. Before I knew it I felt a bunch of other arms wrap around me and Zayn but he kept holding onto me and me onto him. There was a weird feeling I got being in his arms almost like butterflies. No I’m happy with Harry. Where is he anyways? I kept crying I didn’t realize I had so many tears in me. After a few minutes people’s hugs released and it was just me and Zayn but then I felt Harry’s hands wrap around my waist and Zayn released the hug held onto my shoulders and smiled. It made me smile too. He then spun me around to see Harry’s face and I reached up and put my arms around his neck and hugged him so tightly and he kissed my head and we just stood there for a while until I looked up at him and asked “how did you guys get in here?”

"I called Mina and she told me where the spare key was” he said and I turned to look at Mina who was standing with Niall and had his arm around her. She just shrugged her shoulders and smiled.

The rest of the week wasn’t too bad. I think after Harry stood up for me Veronica her group kind of laid off until Friday that is. I was sitting at my lunch table with Mina and Cameron just chilling eating my food. I had bought lunch that day so it as on a tray. I was telling Mina and Cameron about how on Thursday my parents got me a new IPhone and Harry came over too and I asked for their numbers. While Cameron was putting his number in Veronica, Lindsey and Francesca came up to me. I guess Brittany wasn’t here today. “Julie looks like your parents dug up enough of their own money to actually get you a nice phone?” Lindsey said while grabbing out of his hands.

“Uhm could you not?” I asked her.

“Oh sorry” she said then Francesca took it.

“Guys this isn’t funny can I have it back?” I was starting to get annoyed.

“Aw look at her lock screen. Its Harry and her” Veronica said in a close to caring tone. “Too bad the girl he’s with is an ugly fatass” then ‘dropped’ my phone into my food.  A couple years ago I wasn’t the skinniest girl in school and I was definitely subconscious about myself. Every day her and her group teased me and made fun of me for my weight and basically tried shoving anorexia in my face. I still ate everyday just not much and eventually dropped the weight, but I also started working out and went back to eating regular portions.

“Seriously?! Are you fucking kidding me?!” I yelled at her. I usually didn’t use ‘the f word’ in many situations unless I was really about to blow up on someone.

“You heard me. F-A-T-A-S-S FATASS” she said getting closer to me and flipped my food tray onto my lap. “oops.” She said.

“Oh you bitch. You know what!” I started.

“What?” she spoke back.

“I am so done. I’m so fucking done with you and your little friends picking on me and this is for anyone you have ever made fun of. You, Veronica, are a low life slut who hooks up with more guys in a month than I can even count on my hands. You honestly have nothing better to do with your life than make fun of people and point out their flaws?” I didn’t know what came over me but I kept going “You are jealous aren’t you? That I can go from a fat and ugly girl” I put air quotes around ‘fat’ and ‘ugly’ “and change what I didn’t like and now have a boyfriend. Who you’re jealous of. I am sick and tired of this!” at this point I was out from my table and in her face yelling with the food on my shirt and lap. “You think you just own this school? Don’t you?” I asked her. She just stuttered, at a loss of words. “Just what I thought Veronica. You aren’t as tough as you think you are huh? You target people who have low self-esteem and won’t confront you like I am right now” I was right. For once I was standing up for myself and it felt really good. “You think everything revolves around you?” I said while wiping the food off of me “I bet you wouldn’t even care if something happened to Brittany, Lindsey or Francesca as long as it didn’t have an effect on you or your popularity would you?” she didn’t reply. “Exactly now fuck off and leave me alone!” I finished. At that point the entire cafeteria was watching us and it was completely silent.

“Come on girls let’s leave this whore” she said not sounding very confident and they stomped off. Everyone was just staring at me now and I just looked around I turned around back at Mina and Cameron. Cameron’s jaw was dropped in utter shock and Mina just sat there smiling she was proud; I was proud of myself too. Now what am I supposed to do with my phone? I went to the bathroom and started wiping it off the junk that was on my phone.  I couldn’t believe I stood up to her. It felt like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders and I just felt so much more relieved and good. I finished getting the stuff off my phone and walked out of the bathroom with a new found confidence.
