9. Chapter 8

*Justin's POV*

I've been wanting to ask her this question since the moment I got introduced to her.

"Yeah?" She said, nodding, encouraging me to go on.

"Umm.. Well.. It's a silly question but-"

"Would you just ask?" She said cutting me off.

"Are we.. Like.. Friends? Or.." I asked scratching the back of my neck. I felt really awkward cause it was such a stupid and silly question but I still needed to know.

"Of course we are, silly," she said. I let out a sigh of relief. I don't know why I was so worked up.

She then wrapped her arms around my neck, catching me off guard. I moved my hands around her waist. Her hair smelled really nice. I wish I could hold her like this forever.

Just then the bell rang, so I let go of her. "C'mon we have to go we're already late." I said, grabbing her hand and running off to class.

We got there just on time but both of us were panting. "Mr. Bieber, Ms. Carlson, would you please stop breathing so heavily and take your seats." Mr. D said to us.

We went and sat down at our desks. Mr.D spoke up again, "Today you will be working with your partners on your projects. Chop chop, go to work!" He said and went to sit down at his desk.

Natalie turned around to face me. "Ready, Bieber?" She used my last name.

"'Bieber'?" She giggled. She had the most adorable laugh.

"I thought I'd change things up a bit." she stated biting her lip.

"Lets get to work, shall we?" I stated in my best British accent. It was a total fail and both of us started laughing.

"I'm serious Justin we have to get to work," she explained after laughing.

"Okay fine" I replied. We got out our poster and Natalie started flipping through the science textbook.

She sat criss-crossed on the floor, her hair curtaining her face as she looked through the book. As she sat there I just stared at her like she was some kind of angel. 'Still think you dont have feelings for her' I heard my sub-conscience telling me. Yeah I'm sure now shut it.

I kept my eyes on Natalie as she continued to skim through the book. She looked up at me and smirked. "Take a picture, it lasts longer," she said.

I was knocked out of my gaze on her. "Oh... Umm.." I didn't know how to respond.

Just then I heard someone laughing and looked to wear it was coming from. It was Chaz and Ryan. I didn't know they had science with me.

When I looked their way they started making hearts with their hands and kissy faces. That was such an embarrassment. I mouthed the words 'shut up' and looked back at Natalie. She was still looking through the book.

"Oh look, I found a section on leopards." She said pointing at the book. I came closer to her and looked at what she was pointing at.

"Oh that's cool. Maybe we can draw one and put information around it or something. " I stated. First she had a straight face, then she smiled.

"That's a great idea Justin" she said.

"Okay. But you're drawing it cause I suck at sketching." I said.

She giggled that cute giggle. "Haha okay whatever." 

She took out a pencil and started drawing. I was sitting there watching her hand move gracefully across the paper, not making one mistake. She was really good at art.

I took this time to really look at her. She was so small and cute. She had curves in all the right places and she was really pretty. I looked over at her drawing and it started to look really good. A smile crept on my face as I continued staring at her perfectness.

Her voice broke my thoughts, "Can you stop doing that?" She asked, biting her lip nervously.

"Doing what?"

"Staring at me like that" she said, blushing.

"Aww, you dont have to be shy about it. You're beautiful Natalie and I hope you know that." I said looking straight into her eyes. She looked down in embarrassment, her cheeks still red.

The bell rang and she took her stuff and left heading to the next class without saying a word. I didn't have the next class with her, but I did have it with Ryan and Chaz.

As I was going out of class, Ryan and Chaz caught up with me. "Dude. What was that all about?" Chaz asked.

"What?" I asked confused.

"You know what we're talking about bro. You were staring at Natalie for practically the entire period." Ryan answered.

"So? It's not like you don't stare at girls. Plus, I dont have any feelings for her." I said.

"Don't have feelings my ass. It's not the fact that you were staring, its the way you did it." Chaz stated.

"What does that even mean?"

"Listen dude. We can tell the difference between a guy checking out a girl and a guy that's falling for a girl. And with you that was easy. We can read you like a book." Ryan exclaimed.

"Whatever guys," I replied. They just rolled their eyes and laughed. We got to the next class and it was very boring. 


*Natalie's POV*

As soon as the bell rang, I went to find Carly and Ashley since they had class with me.

I really couldn't believe that Justin was staring at me for almost the whole period. And when he said I was beautiful, I couldn't help but blush. My stomach was full of butterflies. 'Just face it you're falling for him.' No I'm not. Like I told him earlier we're just friends. 'And that explains the butterflies in you're stomach?' I get those everytime someone compliments me. 'Stop running away from you're feelings' I'm not running away from anything. Now would you just shut up?

I saw Ashley and Carly and ran up to them. "Hey girls," I said.

"Hi Natie," both of them replied.

"You did not see what happened in science," I stated.

"What?" They both asked, their eyes filling with curiosity.

"So Justin and I were doing the project together and I was looking through the book for ideas then I felt like his eyes were on me so I looked to him and found him staring at me. So I told him to stop. Then we decided we were gonna do leopards so I started drawing one on the poster and felt his eyes on me once again. So I asked him to stop again then he said I was beautiful so I started blushing and the bell rang so I got out of there as fast as I could." I confessed.

"Ooooouuuuuuu." they both made an 'o' shape with their mouths. I slapped Carly playfully on her arm.

"Shut up." I said giggling.

"He seems like he has a major crush on you." Ashley stated.

Just then the teacher came in and we all took our seats. This was definitely gonna be a boring period. 


*Justin's POV* 

After we finished we had lunch. I headed for my locker and saw that Natalie was putting her things in her locker. I grabbed her waist and spun her around. She screamed and laughed. I put her down and she turned around and slapped me on my chest playfully. I held her hand as it touched my chest. She looked up at me and bit her lip. She looked adorable when she did that.

I broke our gaze and spoke up. "So.. Umm.. Do you, Carly an Ashley wanna come sit with me, Chaz and Ryan in lunch?" I asked.

"Sure, why not?" She replied. We turned around and found the 4 of them coming towards us as if on cue.

"So are we gonna head to lunch?" Natie asked. 


*Ashley's POV*

After class, I went to my locker, put my things away and headed for Carly's locker.

"What is going on with Natalie and Justin?" I asked.

"I really don't know but its obvious they're falling for each other," she answered.

"But she said she liked Bryan," I replied.

"Saying something doesn't mean you have to feel it." Carly said.

She had a point but what I didn't get was if natalie and justin really felt that way, why does Natalie say she has feelings for Bryan? Just then I saw Chaz and Ryan make their way towards us. Natie, Carly and I kinda knew them.

"Wadup girls," Chaz stated.

"Hey," we both said in unison.

"So we came here to talk about Natie and Justin." Ryan said.

"Tell me about it," Carly spoke up rolling her eyes and closing her locker.

"Justin's falling for her but he just doesn't see it," Chaz said.

"Maybe he does but he's just pushing his feelings away. You know how us guys are," Ryan said. "What's the deal with Natalie anyways?"

"We really don't know. She said she likes this Bryan dude who we've never even seen or met, but she went on a date with him. But I think she has feelings for Justin," I said.

"Well we have to do something about it," Chaz replied.

"We'll talk later lets just see where they are." We turned on our heels and headed in the direction of Natalie and Justin's lockers since they were next to each other.

As soon as we got to the beginning of their hallway, we saw Justin grab Natie from behind, spin her around and put her back down while she screamed and laughed. All of us stood there with our mouths hanging open. 'Don't have feelings for each other' my ass.

"Umm guys? Did you see what I just saw?" I asked looking at them. They all just nodded. We started walking to them.

"Guys look." Chaz said. We looked their way. Natalie's hand was on Justin's chest and he was holding it there. They were just staring at each other's eyes and slowly getting closer until Justin moved his head away. Smart move.

I couldn't believe my eyes. We walked up to them and they noticed us so they let go of each other and looked at the ground. I bet it was awkward for them. "Umm.. Hey guys" Natalie said. First she didn't look up at us but when she did both Carly and I had our hands crossed on our chest and we both cocked an eyebrow.

"Hi Natalie," I said.

"Umm.. Can we just head to the Cafeteria?" Justin said breaking the tension.

We all did what he said and walked down the halls to the cafeteria. We got there and found a place to sit.

Chaz spoke up. "So Justin, Ryan and I were gonna go to the park today. Wanna tag along?" He asked.

"Um I have to do something with Jack." I said. (a/n for those of you who don't remember: Jack is ashley's boyfriend)

"That would be great." Carly said looking at Ryan and smiling. What? Looking at Ryan? Weird...

"Um yeah sure" Natalie said, obviously still embarrassed about what happened earlier. "Shoot! I umm forgot my money in my locker. I have to go.. get it" Natie said excusing herself from us.

Justin got up. "Wait Natie, I'll come with you," he said, all of us, shocked.

Chaz, Ryan, Carly and I just looked at eachother.

When Natalie and Justin were gone, I started speaking up. "WHAT JUST HAPPENED?" I asked. They all just looked at each other.

"They're probably gonna have a makeout session." Ryan chuckled.

"Can you not?" Carly stated.

"I think were just wasting our time. We have to let them decide what they want. We can't force it." Chaz said.

"But they won't do anything about it," I said.

"I said we can't force it. I didn't say anything about convincing them." Chaz said with a smirk. I liked where he was going with this. 


*Natalies POV*

"That was one of the most embarrassing moments of my life." I said, laughing as we exited the cafeteria.

"I know right?" Justin said chuckling, too. He had the most adorable laugh. I just smiled and walked back to my locker.

"Okay, to tell you the truth, I was just making up an excuse. I had to get out of there," I said, giggling a little.

He started laughing again. "That's why I came with you," he said.

"So what do you wanna do? We have 5 minutes."

"I don't know maybe just sit here and talk."

"So what's up with this Bryan guy?" He asked. Was it weird that he was asking? I shrugged it off.

"He's really nice. The place he took me to was really fancy. I really had fun." I smiled remembering yesterday. Justin looked down as if he was disappointed. I put my hand on his shoulder.

"Did I say something wrong?" I said, feeling bad.

"No its.. Uh.. Nothing," he said.

"Its my turn to ask you some things." I said.

"Go ahead," he replied.

"Okay.. First.. What's your favorite color?" I asked.

"Purple," he said and I smiled.

"Why are you smiling?" He asked.

"Cause that's also my favorite color. Umm do you have any siblings?" I said.

"Uh yeah. My parents are divorced but my dad got remarried and got two kids named Jazmyn and Jaxon, but I live with my mom so I'm alone in my house."

"oh okay."

"Umm I think we better get going before they suspect anything," he smiled, holding out his hand for me to take. I took it and we started walking back to the cafeteria.

"What do you think they think we're doing" I asked.

"Probably saying we were making out," Justin said, laughing. He was really sweet and gentle. I dont know why I ever thought he was a bad guy.

Just then Justin let go of my hand. I really didn't want him to. His hand was so soft.

"I'll carry you on my back," he said.

"You sure? I might be too heavy," I replied.

"You? Heavy?"

"Okay fine." 

He crouched down a bit and I jumped on his back. He held me up with my thighs and I wrapped my arms around his neck.

"You ready?" He asked.

"Ready for wha-" Just then he took off running to the cafeteria. I screamed and laughed in delight. He was smiling the whole way.

As soon as we got inside I saw Carly, Ashley, Chaz and Ryan look at us with their jaws dropped. I laugh-whispered in justins ear. He started smiling. "

Lets give them something to watch since they're already so surprised," I said in his ear. He chuckled. I jumped down from his back and stood in front of him.

I wrapped my arms around his neck and started giggling, but they couldn't see me cause my back was facing them. I leaned up to Justin's ear on my tip toes. "Put your arms around my waist." I said. He did as I ordered.

I looked up to him and he was looking at me with a huge grin. He leaned down and whispered in my ear. "They're faces are priceless," he said in a low, raspy voice. It got me shivers.

I kissed his cheek several times and he kissed mine once before letting go and putting his arm around my waist.

I looked back at their faces and it was hilarious I had to cover my face so I hugged justin and put my face in his chest. I started laughing and I could tell he knew cause he whispered to me again. "Calm down they're gonna find out," he said.

I looked up and he was smirking down at me. We started making our way back to the table hand in hand.

"It's funny how they think things that aren't even true," I whispered in his ear while we were making our way towards the table.

"Hey guys," I said as I was sitting down. Justin sat next to me.

All of them were just looking at me then at Justin. "Um hellooo??" Justin said waving his hands infront of their faces.

"And you might wanna close your mouths before you start drooling," I said.

"Oh.. Um.. Hi," Carly started off. I was trying so hard to keep myself from laughing. The bell rang.

"Oh looks like we have to go. Bye guys, see you after school" I said and walked off.


*Chaz's POV*

What just happened? I asked myself in my head. And while they were cming over here they made it look like it was nothing. I looked at the rest of them. "Umm.. Guys?" I said, still staring at Natalie and Justin from afar. All of us were shocked.

They came over and talked a bit but none of us were paying attention. We were still shocked by what we had just seen. After the bell rang Natalie ran off.

Ryan and I grabbed Justin from his t-shirt and dragged him outside the cafeteria. "Care to explain what just happened?" I said crossing my arms across my chest.

"What?" He said nonchalantly as if nothing happened.

"What do you mean what?! Bro you just had your arms around Natalie and she was kissing you!" I spat.

"Yeah.. So?" He said.

"What happened to 'I don't like her.'" Ryan spat.

"I don't!" Justin defended himself.

"Then what was that all about?" Ryan said waving his hands.

"Can't I give my friend a hug?" Justin said.

"That wasn't just a 'hug.'" I said. HOW THE HELL COULD HE BE SO CALM ABOUT THIS?

"Whatever guys. I'm gonna be late I'll see you afterschool." He said and walked off. 


*Justin's POV*

When Ryan and Chaz came and talked to me it was priceless. They were freaking out and stuff and I just acted as if nothing happened.

I walked to my locker and saw Natalie smiling.

"Waddup," I said.

"THAT WAS SO HILARIOUS!"She said and burst out laughing. I couldn't help but laugh too.

We went to class and the end of the day came by pretty quickly. Me and Natalie went outside and waited for Ryan, Chaz and Carly by my car.

We saw them come out but what surprised us was that Ryan and Carly were holding hands. I looked at Natalie and she was smiling. As soon as they came I spoke, "Ooouuu I guess we have our little love birds over here," I said.

"Speak for yourselves," she spat and looked at me and Natalie. I put my hands up in the air to show that I was just joking. Natalie giggled.

"C'mon lets get going." I said.

"I call shotgun!" Natalie yelled as she made her way to the passenger seat. "Dammit." Chaz mumbled. Him, Ryan and Carly sat in the back. 

While I was driving, I felt chaz tap me on the shoulder. I looked around and saw him pointing to ryan and carly with his thumb as he mouthed the words 'help me'. Carly was straddling Ryan and they were making out. I cleared my throat. "Are you done sucking eachother a faces out?" I said. Natalie started giggling.

"Get a room." She said. Carly and Ryan looked up. Carly sat on Ryan's lap and bit her lip. I could tell she was embarrassed.

"Um sorry guys.." Ryan said nervously. I decided to change the subject.

"Do you guys wanna go grab a pizza before we go to the park?" I asked. They all agreed.

We went to the pizza diner and ate. After we finished it was getting dark so we headed for the park.

We got to the park and started walking around. We sat down in the grass and we just talked about anything and everything.

When we got bored we decided to play hide-and-seek. It's a childish game, I know, but it was really fun. Ryan wanted to be it so he started.

"C'mon Justin" Natalie said, grabbing my hand. Her hand was so warm and soft.

She ran and pulled me along with her. She laughed the whole way. I loved seeing her smile and laugh.

We ran for a while. This park was really big. Finally, we found an old abandoned play area for kids. We stopped and looked around for a place to hide. I spotted a little house. Probably something the kids would play in. It was really small and no one would guess we were in there.

"Over here," I said as I dragged Natalie to the little house. I opened the door. It was empty. Natalie got in first and then I got in after her. It was really tight and we could barely fit. My face and Natalie's were inches apart.

I heard a crack outside and footsteps. "Shh I think Ryan's here," I whispered. I hugged Natalie and she put here face in my chest. I really liked how we were now. It was like we were cuddling. I could feel her breath on my chest.

Her teeth started chattering. And I could feel goosebumps on her skin. I looked down at here and she was trying to get warm.

"Hey Natie, are you cold?" I asked.

"No im f-fine," she said, shivering. It was obvious that she was cold.

"Natalie don't lie to me I can tell you're shivering. Here take my hoodie." I said, taking it off and wrapping it around her.

"Thanks Justin" she said and leaned up to kiss my cheek. A comfortable silence came between us as we just say there, Natalie in my arms.

'So you finally listened to me.' My sub-conscience was speaking. Listened to what exactly? We made it clear that we were friends in the morning. 'You have her in your arms right now and she kissed you several times. Don't let it slip away. Listen to me.' Don't let what slip away? I don't have feelings for her and she obviously likes Bryan. 'Is that what's gonna stop you? Bryan?' Stop what? For the last time, I don't like her. Now shut up.

I tried to make out any sounds but I couldn't hear any. "You wanna go? There's no one here." I said and looked at Natalie. She was asleep and she looked like an angel. I didn't want to wake her up but I had to.

"Natie. Natalie." I said as I shook her.

"Justin.." She was talking in her sleep. And she said my name. Was she dreaming of me? Doubt it. But why would she say my name?

"Natalie wake up." I said, shaking her again.

She yawned and opened her eyes "Justin?" She said in a groggy voice.

"I'm right here, babe." I said, teasing her, knowing that that would definitely wake her up. 

"How many times do I have to tell you not to call me that?" she said as she rubbed her eyes.

"Wanna go? There's no one here." I said.

"Yeah, sure, whatever." I got out first and opened the door for her. I took her hand and helped her out.

*Natalies POV*

"Justin you should take your hoodie, it's cold." I said, handing it to him.

"No Natie. You need it more than me," he replied, taking it and putting it over my head. It was really cosy and warm. And it smelt like Justin.

We started walking back. I thought about the little house that we were in. I liked cuddling with Justin. His smell calmed me and it was really cosy in his arms. I guess that was why I fell asleep so easily. I loved listening to his heartbeat. I think I dreamed about him though, but I don't really remember.

We got to where we were siting before and saw Chaz already sitting there. "So I guess the two lovebirds went hiding together," he said.

"Ha-ha very funny," I replied. Note the sarcasm.

"I guess Ryan caught Carly," Justin stated.

"I think he did much more than that," Chaz added, laughing. Pervert.

"They're probably having a make out session," I said, giggling. Justin and Chaz started laughing too.

Just then, I saw two headlights coming from the parking lot. Someone came out of their car. He came closer. I knew exactly who he was. Bryan.

*Justin's POV*

As soon as the person came out of the car, Natalie ran up to him and wrapped her arms around him. I clenched my jaw. I knew exactly who he was. Bryan.
