10. Chapter 10


When i got to school the next day, the whole entire hallway was buzzing. Everyone was talking about something. I ignored it at first, but then when i heard snippets of conversations from people i grew interested. I walked slowly down the hallway trying to listen to their conversations:

"...I heard the winners get to keep the house!..."

Winners? House?

"...10 Seniors...10 Freshman..."

Seniors? Freshman?

"...fill out application forms at lunch..."


Trying to listen to peoples conversations was too hard and confusing so i rushed down the hallway to try and find Jazz, Doris and Connor; They'll know what's going on. I spot them all sitting down in the caffeteria talking amongst themselves about something.

"Hey guys!" I say as i walk over to them.

They all smile at me as i approach them and greet me.

"Hi!" Jazz says to me with a huge grin.

I sit down next to Connor and motion for them to continue their conversation. Just as they started to talk again, Louis and his friends sat down next to us.

"Hey guys" Liam says to us with a smile.

Harry wondered over to where Doris was and sat down next to her.

"Hi Doris!" Harry said with a huge grin of his face.

Doris blushed and mumbled something, not looking at Harry. 

Well that was odd, Doris isn't usually the one to be shy around people. I turn to Liam and nudge him to grab his attention.

"Hey, what's everyone talking about? Has something happened?" I ask him.

"Haven't you heard?!" Liam asked shocked.

"Well if i had of heard what was going on then i wouldn't need to ask you now would i?" I replied.

"Ok, ok i'll tell you then" Liam said with a wink. "Well this morning Mr Dunce made an announcement to the whole school.."


'Good morning students! I have a very exciting announcement to make today, we will be trying something very new and interesting this year; A little competition. We will be choosing 10 Seniors and 10 Freshman to live together in a house and compete against each other in challenges. The winner will get to keep the house! You can fill out application forms at lunch time in the cafeteria. This is just to encourage friendships between the year groups, thank you and that is all'


"Wow that sounds so cool!" I say excitedly. "Are you guys going to sign up?"

"Yeah" Niall nods. "We're all going to at lunch"

"Good!" I say. "I'm going to sign up with you"

The day went so quick, to be honest it was all just a blur. All i could focus on was what Liam told me, how fun would it be to do that?! As soon as the bell went i grabbed my stuff and ran to cafeteria to be the first in line. Doris, Jazz and Connor were already there, i joined them quickly. 

"Here you go, quick! Everyone is taking them!" Jazz says as she hands me an application.

"You'd better grab five more so that Harry and that don't miss out!" Connor says while trying to quickly fill out his form.

Jazz nods and leans back in to grab five more applications before they're all taken. I looked at my form and took out a pen, as i scan over the form i notice how weird the questions were. I sighed and started on the first question.

I finished my form and handed it in, i really hope they choose me but at the looks of the amount of people that are entering this competition; my chances were slim. I smiled at my friends and sat down to wait for them to finish. As i was picking at my nails to get the last remaining bits of toothpaste off, an arm wrapped around me and scared the hell out of me. I twisted around and found it was Louis with his arms around me, i smiled and him and returned to my previous position. Zayn and the others sat around us. I glanced across at Zayn and he was looking at me with a puzzled and hurt look. I feel so bad. Louis sat down next to me and gave me a kiss on my cheek.

"Hello beautiful" He whispered into my ear as he tucked my hair behind my ear. "You look so pretty today"

The amount of emotion and affection Louis was displaying towards me took me by surprise, i just smiled and leant into his body taking comfort in his warmth.

"Have you guys all signed up?"Niall asked excitedly in his gorgeous Irish accent.

"Yeah but we saved five application forms for you guys" I reply with a smile.

Niall grinned and grabbed one of the sheets, the others followed his actions and were all filling them in. I looked at Louis while he was filling his in and every once and a while i would sneak a peek at his answers.

"Oi! No peeking" Louis laughed.

I did a little pout and he tilted my head up towards his.

"Let's turn the frown upside down" He says.

Louis leans in and kisses me right on the lips, i close my eyes and kiss back. We drew apart and Louis continued on with his application form, i took a look at everyone around me and then i saw Zayn. I couldn't get over his face, he looked so hurt. What have i done?!


"Zayn, wait!" I call out as i try and chase after Zayn on the way to my next class.

Zayn stops and lets out a huge breath. He turns around to face me and looks down at me with big, sad eyes.

"I'm sorry" I start to say before he cuts me off.

"Nothing to be sorry about. Your together now. I see that" Zayn says curtly not making full eye contact with me.

Zayn turns around and starts to walk away from me again. I grab his arm to try and stop him but he just keeps on walking.

"Zayn.." I say quietly, a tear starting to roll down my cheek.

Then he stops, he doesn't move. I slowly turn to walk away but then he grabs me, spins me around and pulls me in for a hug.

"I am so sorry! I didn't mean to make you cry, i'm just so confused" He says burying his face into my neck. 

I pull away from his embrace and look him straight in the eyes.

"I'm sorry, i don't know what happened today. Louis and i aren't even together, we just...I just...." I say. "I don't know how to explain it" 

"Hey look, it's ok, i'm sorry that i made a big deal out of it! I guess i should of found out the full story first, hey?" Zayn smiles quietly as he looks at my face. "Come on, let's go to class"

Zayn takes my hand and we walk o our next class together. The next few periods go so fast and before we knew it, it was almost time to go home.

"Attention students! The winners for the house challenges competition will be announced next week on Monday at a whole school assembly, first period! Don't forget guys!" Our teacher tells us just as the siren goes.

I cannot wait until Monday and because it was only Wednesday, i was going to have to contain my excitement for a while.


The week went by so fast! Before anyone knew it, Monday had come along and we were in the gym waiting for the principal to start the assembly.


"Good morning Students!" Mr Dunce's loud voice boomed through the microphone. "We all know why we are here don't we?"

The whole nods murmured and nodded waiting for him to continue.

"Good, good, now i won't hold you any longer and i will now announce the winners! If i call out your name i want you to please stand and make your way up the front here.." Mr Dunce said loudly with a smile on his old face. "First up i will call out the Freshman winners, we have: Connor Fergurson, Jazz Grant, Doris ten Have, Sue McIntyre, Thomas Polger, Daniel Quinz, Callum Forge, Luke Boyder, Lily Pannes..."

Aw cool! All of my friends have been accepted!

"..and last but not least, Ellie Parkerson! Guys, please come up here and we will congratulate you!" 

I froze for a second, processing what Mr Dunce just said. I was accepted! I couldnt believe he just called out my name, i grabbed Jazz and Doris and we all walked up to the stage together smiling like idiots. 

"Congratulations guys! Now if you wouldnt mind standing to one side while we present our 10 Senior winners" Mr Dunce said. "And our 10 Senior winners are: Samantha Jones, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Julia Stone, Harry Styles, Mary Scott, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Tammy Moore and Grace Ellis! Everyone please give them a big round of applause, to all of our winners! Congratulations!" 

I smile stupidly as i watch my new Senior friends walk up to the stage and join us. I couldnt wait to start packing when i get home, this was going to be so much fun!
