4. Math Class

The next day when I went to Math class Harry was sitting behind me again. 

"Hey, no evil pink zebras or purple penguins today?" He asked jokingly.

"Just one, but I fought it off," I raised my hands in fists in front of my face, like a boxer.

"Good," I turned to look at the board, which was empty. Huh? 

Mr. Reid got up and stood in front of the class. 

"Today we are starting something new, an assignment," he picked up a big stack of papers, "you can work with a partner, or alone, you will each get a package and it is due in a month," okay.

A tap on my shoulder made me turn around to Harry's smiling face.

"Would you like to work together?" He asked.

"Sure, why not," 

He smiled. I smiled back.

Mr. Reid started speaking again. 

"You and your partner can, sit together, or whatever," he started handing out the packages and Harry came and sat next to me. 

"So where do we start then?" 

"Well, I'm awesome at algebra so how 'bout there?" I said pointing at the page the algebra started at. 

He leaned in and looked at the page. "Okay," 

We kept discussing where to go and what we could do, when Harry looked up at the clock.  

"Oh, the period is almost over, so maybe we should work on this after school, like at your house or something," he added making my breath catch in my throat. No guys except Niall, - my best friend since I was little little-  Zayn, -I've known him since grade 6 - Liam, - Lexi's boyfriend since we started high school - Louis -other best friend since I was little little - had ever been in my house before.

"Oh, my friends are all coming over," I said starting to feel guilty.

"Tomorrow then?" He asked. 

"S-Sure..." I said looking down. 

The bell rang then and I hurried up to get away from Harry, meeting Lexi and her boyfriend Liam at our lockers. 

We grabbed our lunch, I had a salad and turkey sandwich. 

When we sat down, Liam said:

"So I hear the new kid, Harry, likes you Ana..." I scoffed again.

"Where did you hear that, Lexi?" I said.

"W-Well yeah..." I laughed.

"He doesn't like me," I said.

"Who doesn't like you Ana?" Said Niall as he sat down. 

"Harry, the new kid!" Lexi exclaimed.

"He does-" I started to say.

"Harry likes Ana?" Louis said as he sat down across from me.

"No." 

"Who likes Ana?" Said Alexandria, the only other girl in our little group, as she sat down next to Niall and he put his arms around her. They've been dating for 4 months.

"Nobody! Harry doesn't like me!" I exclaimed and put my head on my hands.

"Whoa, calm down Anastasia," said Lexi.

"Hey, guys," said Zayn as he sat down on my other side. I looked over at him and saw Harry on his other side.

He must of seen me staring at Harry because the next thing he said was: 

"Oh, this is Harry,"

"I know, we have Math together..." I said awkwardly. 

After a few moments of silence, and me picking at my salad, Liam started talking with Zayn and Louis about football, while Niall and Alexandria talked about a date and Harry and I sat in silence. 

"So we're all still coming over tonight, Ana?" Liam asked suddenly.

"Well, I'll need the company..." I trailed off as everyone but Lexi gave me a confused look. "He left Friday," I said sadly as Alexandria wrapped me in a hug.

"Oh, Ana," she said soothingly. 

"Yeah, well, I'm going to go put this back," I picked up my tray and left before any of them could stop me.

I put the stuff back and turned to look back at them, no one was paying attention to me. I sighed and left the cafeteria.

I kept walking till the filter of students was little-to-none and I leaned up against the wall and slid down. I put my head on my knees and let the first tear of many fall down my cheek. 

By the time an unfamiliar arm wrapped itself around me, my eyes were red and the tears came faster and heavier. 

"Shh, Anastasia, what's wrong?" I recognized the slow, deep voice of Harry immediately. 

"She's gone, he's gone, and its my fault he's never coming back," I sobbed over and over again as Harry rubbed my back and let me cry on his shoulder, literally. 

Harry was always good at predicting when the bell was going to ring because he ushered me to the bathroom to clean up, while he waited outside, and as soon as we had made it half-way down the hall towards my next class, the bell rang. I thanked Harry for making me feel better and that I'd see him tomorrow.

I walked into the class and took my usual seat, in the middle, and thought about what had happened. What that feeling in the pit of my stomach as Harry pulled me close to him, why all my problems seemed to melt away when I was near him and why a permanent smile was etched upon my face when I was with him, I was wondering all these things and probably about to find an answer when the teacher started the class and I was brought from my thoughts.
