8. Conversations and Secrets.

Austin's P.O.V."
You alright?" She asks me, "You haven't looked at me since the assembly.

I look over at her, "Michelle, why didn't you tell me about Rob?

"She gives me a look, her smile fading away. "Austin it was a game! You're acting as if I like Rob back! If I liked him, why would I be dating you?" She said.

I shrug, "I don't know."
"See that's why I'm dating YOU, because I like YOU!" She says, laughing.
I chuckled and walk to Algebra with her. I forgot Rob was in that class, but it's alright since I know that she's mine and Rob won't take her away from me. We sat down like we always did, me in back of Michelle and Rob sitting right next to her. They were talking a lot, but I just sat there and listened to what they were saying.
"Yeah!" She said in between laughs. "When you sent me that text I couldn't stop laughing!"

"It was hilarious, and then she came up to me and asked if we were related!" He said.
"Rob, you're the only one I know that would do something as funny as that. Not even Zach!" She said.
Rob went and whispered something in her ear which caused her to start laughing even more, I felt a rush of jealousy kick in and I tried to hold it in but I couldn't.
"What's so funny?" I blurted out.
They both looked at me, "Nothing just some story Rob texted me about this morning. We were just talking about it." She said.
I nod, "Yeah bro it was hilarious." Rob said.
We turned all of our attention to the sub that had walked in.
"Eh, hello class. I am Mr. G and I'm just gonna be subbing for about two weeks while your teacher is away." He said, stroking the bit of hair he had left.
"So what are we going to do today?" Michelle asks.
"First I'm going to take attendance, then I just need to give you a packet. You can work on them together and we can go out to the quad too." He says.
We all nodded as he called out the names.
"Austin?"
"Right here," I say, holding up my pen.
He nods, "Michelle?"
"I am right hereeeee!" She said loudly.
"And last but not least, Robert?" He asked.
"Call me Rob please sir." He said.
"Well then, Rob?"
"Here!" He said.
The man closed the laptop and started to hand out this huge packet.
"Alright, this is your deliverable for Wednesday. You will have today, tomorrow, and Wednesdays class to complete this packet. You have until the end of the day on Wednesday to hand this in. You can hand it in earlier if you please. Now, file out and head to the quad. I'll be there in about 10 minutes or so." He says as he hands me the last packet.
I swing my bag around my shoulder and walk out with Michelle and Rob
"I'm so tired." She said, in between a yawn.
"I told you to go to sleep! But no. Nobody ever listens to Rob!" He said.
I rolled my eyes, "I don't know how I'm gonna last this week." I say.
"How come?" She asked, grabbing my hand.
"Just too much tension. Like all of you girls are all over the place and Tyler and Rob are in this weird place right now." I say.
"Tyler's gonna get over it, but I have to have a little conversation with him first." Rob said.
"You guys need to make up because hopefully by the
 end of the week I'll be good with Naleen and we can go out on Thursday." Michelle says.
"Yeah, and if not I'll just take you out myself." I say.
She laughed, "Cool. It's gonna be a good weekend either way so I'm not going to let any problem ruin it." She says.
"Yeah everyone knows that whatever happened during their time didn't mean anything. I don't know why everyone is making a big deal out if it now, right Michelle?" Rob asks.
She paused and gave him a look "Right."
"Guys I'ma meet you up in the quad, I need to run to my locker." I say.
They not and walk out of the door leading outside.
Michelle's P.O.V.
"How long do we have to hide this?" I ask Rob
"I don't know, everyone knows I like you now but they don't know that you like me." He said.
I nod, "But Rob I like Austin. I've been liking him since last year and now that I have him I don't want to lose him." I say.
He sighed, "I don't know why I never asked you out earlier." He says as he sits at the picnic table.
"Yeah, neither do I. I actually would have said yes." I say, chuckling.
"You should come over after school though, we could chill." He said.
"I'll see about that, I told Alex I'd go over and play basketball today. How about tomorrow?" I ask.
"Sure, but don't tell anyone you're coming, then things will go wrong." He said.
I roll my eyes, "I just don't want to hide anymore. I don't know why everything has to be so difficult."
"What's so difficult?" Austin asked, approaching the table.
"Nothing, just this whole argument the crew is having." I lie quickly.
"Yeah, she's devastated bro." Rob said.
Austin sighed, sitting next to me. "Don't worry about it, we have lunch next period. We can talk about it then. Right now we can be talking about something else." He says.
"Alright like what?" I ask.
"Like Sadie's get together she's having next weekend, she invited the whole crew." Austin said, looking over at Rob.
"Forreal bro? A junior party? Sweet!" Rob said.
I roll my eyes, "You guys can have fun, cause I know I'm not going." I say, finishing the first page of the packet.
"Wait, why?" Austin asked.
"Are you serious? Don't you understand that I don't like that girl? I don't want anything to do with her Austin, and if you want to go to her party then go I'm not stopping you." I say.
"C'mon Michelle it's gonna be mad fun, just go!" Rob said.
I shake my head, "I'm not going Rob, that's it. Nothing's gonna change my mind."
"Michelle don't be like that babe come on. I'm gonna spend the whole time with you. Were just gonna be at a little get together. Nothing's gonna happen!" Austin said, trying to convince me.
I looked at him with a serious face, "You're seriously trying to make me consider this after I'm telling you it's not going to happen?" I say, crossing my arms.
"Well yeah, if I want you to go." He says.
I roll my eyes, and grab my things. I get up and walk off, not even wanting to deal with anyone right now. I check the time to see that it's 10 minutes till lunch, so I excuse myself from class and head to my locker. I get there and switch the textbooks I have with the ones in my locker. I then make my way up the stairs and into the cafeteria that was filling with people. I see Alex sitting alone so I take the chair next to him and sit down.
"Hey Alex, what's up?" I ask.
"Oh nothing good. Vanessa and Zach just left to have this talk but it's not great cause they were talking about the party." Alex said.
I looked at him, "Wait, you talking about you and Vanessa in the room?" I ask.
He nodded, "Yeah."
Vanessa's P.O.V.
"Alright Zach but that doesn't mean anything, why are you acting so innocent? You kissed Naleen and I know you did, so don't try playing this good guy with me!" I say.
"Okay then why are we even together if we both cheated on each other?" He asked.
I gave him a look, "We're together because we like each other Zach. It was just a game how many times do I have to tell you this stuff? I'm getting real tired of having to do that." I say.
"I'm going to punch Alex for messing us up!" He said, brushing his way past me into the cafeteria. 
I speed behind him, I catch Alex and Michelle talking and I motioned for them to leave.
"Zach don't do this please don't!" I said, trying to hold him back.
"Let me go Vanessa, NOW." He said, pushing me back and walking over to Alex.
Before I was even able to talk again he had already swung at Alex and jabbed him right in his jaw. Alex looked up at him and shoved him back, punching Zach in the nose.
"I TOLD YOU NOT TO MESS WITH MY GIRL CONSTANCIO." Zach shouted, as they walked up to each other.
"I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING TO YOU. IT ISN'T MY FAULT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO KEEP A GOOD RELATIONSHIP." He said.
Zach had enough, and just threw them both to the ground, fighting and swinging. All you could hear were the faint winces of pain from each of the guys when they were hit. I turned around and saw Rob and Austin walking into the cafeteria. Michelle got up and walked out of the cafeteria and I ran over to them.
"Guys, hurry. Zach and Alex are fighting!" I tell them.
"What? Hold on!" Austin said, running off towards them.
Rob looked at me and gave me an assuring look then followed him, they went and each grabbed the boys. Rob has Zach tight in his grip and Austin was pushing Alex back so he wouldn't fight anymore. I walked over to them.
"I don't know why you would even do that, especially when I never wanted you to. I don't even know how this is going to work anymore. I don't even know if there is an 'us' anymore after this!" I say to Zach. "Just don't expect me to talk to either of you for the rest of the day, I'm so tired of this pointless drama over these dumb relationships that wouldn't even last anyway." I say, grabbing my bag and trying to find where Michelle went.
