My Everything

Molly POV

The phone rings while I'm resisting the impulse to blowtorch my calculus book.

"Hello?" I say.

"You are not going to believe this!" It's Shania.


"Zayn likes you."


"Zayn? You know, the guy who's been staring at you? The same guy you've been staring at? Does any of this sound familiar?"

"How do you know?"

"He told me."


"Yeah. It's crazy but not entirely surprising."

"Shania. What happened?"

"He came up to me after school and said he wanted to talk. So we went out to the courtyard, and he told me he liked you and he wanted me to switch partners with him in class so he could sit with you."

"Oh my god."

"I'm just saying."

"Doesn't he know I'm going out with Andrew?"

"Yeah , but he doesn't really care."

"Andrew kissed me."


"After school. In the hall."

"So you were probably kissing Andrew at the exact moment Zayn was telling me he likes you. Fascinating."

"Oh my god."

"How was it?"


"The kiss."

When I told Shania and Elizabeth about Andrew kissing me on the cheek, I explained that I was sure the real kiss would be life-altering. "It was...nice," I say.

"Nice? Just nice?"


"Whats happened to earth-shattering?"



"I don't know."

"Wow. So it looks like Mr Looking for Something Real Guy has a chance after all."


"Zayn said you're his something real."


"Then he - damn. I have to go. My mum is flipping because I haven't spent the last five minutes doing homework."

"Wait!" I yell.


"What did you tell Zayn about switching?"

""I told him it was fine with me. I doubt Mr Hornby will go for it, though."


"Please. You know how he is about--"

"No,  I mean why did you say OK to Zayn?"

"Oh," Shania says. "Why not?"


"What are you telling me? You don't want to be with Zayn?"

"No. Yes> I mean, no! I'm not saying that."

"So. what's the problem then?"

"Why would you even agree to talk to him?" I say. "Since when do you sit around talking to guys like Zayn."

"Everything is not as it seems," Shania says cryptically.

"What's that suppose to mean?"

"I'd love to fill you in on all the details, but my mum is literally pulling the phone away from my ear as we speak. I'll talk to you tomorrow."


"Have fun with all the calc."

After she hangs up, I call Elizabeth and tell her everything Shania said.

Elizabeth's like, "Zayn who?"

"Zayn Malik! You know... from art last year?"

"Oh, yeah! He has gorgeous eyes."

"I am aware of this."

"But so does Andrew."

"I am aware of this also."

"So, what... are you interested in Zayn now?"

"No! I like Andrew. Obviously. How long did I wait for him to ask me out?"

"Andrew is totally gorgeous."

"I know."

"And he adores you."

"I know. And he kissed me after school!"

"Yay!" How was it?"


Elizabeth is quiet.

"Hello?" I say.

"Not life-altering?"

"I just wanted it to be... I don't know. It's like I have these really high expectations and then..."

"I used to do the same thing," Elizabeth says. "Not that there is anything wrong with that."

"SO what happened?"

"After a while you find out that no guy can live up to your fantasies. I haven't found one guy yet who meets all my criteria. But Andrew's awesome. I'm sure it'll get better."

"You're probably right. I shouldn't expect one guy to be my everything."

But the truth is, I still do.
