Just Friends

"So," I smiled as I sat at the cafeteria table, in front of the new kid, Niall. I set my tray of food on the table. "have you made any friends yet?" He nodded. "That's good." I said picking up my apple and taking a bite out of it.
"What's his name?" I continued the conversation.
"He's coming to eat with us." He said, "You'll see."
I frowned confused, okay...
"Oh! There he is!" Niall said gesturing to a guy coming towards us. I turned around but as soon as I saw who it was I flashed my head back towards Niall.
"You're kidding me right?" I one hand on my forehead staring at the table. "Niall, you can't be friends with him he's-"
I was cut off by the guy sitting beside me on the bench of the table. "trouble." I finished under my breath as he and Niall did some kind of handshake.
"Hey there Brooke, haven't seen you in awhile." He winked at me.
"Hello Zayn..." I said coldly as I inched away from him on the bench.


22. (19) Break

Me and Niall walk to school the following Monday. “Hey did you know we have a week break coming up?” Niall chimes.

I frown. “Yeah but we have a week of exams right before.”


What do you mean ‘so?’ you idiot I don’t want to study.

“It’s exams. I hate them. School wouldn’t be so bad without them.”

“Or homework.” Niall adds in.

I scrunch up my nose. “Well you can skip that at least.”

He chuckles. “Not all of us are rebels you know.” I roll my eyes.

“I’m sorry didn’t know it was that rebellious.” I laughed and he joined me.

“Anyways, the reason I brought up the subject was because I thought we could do something fun, a gang together.” He hinted.

I raised an eyebrow. “What do you have in mind?”

“You bring a friend, I bring a friend and we go somewhere.”

I kept my stare on him. “Where?”

“Camping?” He said making it sound mostly like a question.

“Is your ‘friend’ Zayn?” He nodded slowly and I shook my head.

“You can bring Kaylee!” He tried to convince me.

“But why does he have to come?” I groaned.

“Because he’s my only friend besides you!” He said raising his hands in the air.

“Niall I swear if this is another plan to make me and Zayn.. whatever.” I shake my head and roll my eyes not even wanting to go there.

“You and Zayn what?”

“Be like before, I don’t know.”

“Well what about it?”

“It’s not gonna happen.”

He ignored my last statement and started to hum quietly. We made our way to first class and Niall was talking with Zayn so I scampered over to Kaylee.


“Hey girl.” I smiled bumping my shoulder against hers to get her attention. Her face lit up.


“Oh by the way. You’re coming camping next week with me, Niall and Zayn.”

Her eyebrows knotted together. “Why Zayn?” She knew that we used to be friends but weren’t anymore but nobody knew why.

“He’s Niall’s friend.”

“And you guys aren’t anymore because…” She eyed me.

“It was a long time ago. All is forgotten.” I lied.

“You don’t seem to like him very much.” She pointed out.

I shrugged. “I don’t like a lot of people.”

She sighed. “You know what I mean.”

I ignored what she said. “So is that a yes? Please don’t leave me alone with him.”

“Who?” Shit.


“Niall’s there.” She corrected me. “But see? You do not like him.”

I blinked a couple times. “So?” She crossed her arms. “We just don’t get along the way we used to.”

“Brooke did anything happen between you two..?”

I swallowed the lump in my throat. “Obviously.”

“Did he do anything?”

I grimaced. Yes. “No.”

She sighed in relief. “Good. At least.”

I faked a smile. “Mhm.”

The first bell rang indicating the beginning of the class so I leaned back and sat in my spot, letting myself drown in a sea of boring for the duration of the period.
