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.


25. (22) Piercing


I scrunched up my nose feeling the cool metal on my skin. I smiled and reached over to feel over the diamond lightly.  I like it. I didn’t have much to do so I thought I’d drop by Kaylee’s. When I got there I knocked slightly on the door and her mother welcomed me in.

“Brooke!” she held her arms open for an embrace.

I fell into it. “Hi.” I smiled. I pulled away from the hug and looked over her shoulder. “Is Kaylee here?”

She tilted her head, staring at me before nodding. “Yes dear.” I started walking towards the stairs before turning back to her mom. “May I?” She grinned and nodded. I hurried up the stairs and burst into her room, plopping myself on the bed. She was on her laptop, doing whatever the hell she was doing. Like it’s relevant. I sprawled out on my back and starting playing with the piece of hair that lay on my chest.

“What the hell Brooke!” I raised an eyebrow at her. She shook her head with the hint of a smile appearing at the corner of her lips.

“Only you.” She laughed. “You’re the only person I know that would just burst into someone’s house without them knowing and act all casual about it. I shrugged and flicked the strand of hair on the bed.

She frowned and walked over to me. “This is new.” She poked the diamond sticking out of the top right side of my nose.

“Ow!” I screamed, swatting her hand away.

“Sorry.” She defended.

“Obviously it’s going to hurt if it’s new you idiot!” I argued covering my nose with my hand and patting the pain away. Actually I don’t know what the hell I was doing but it’s a reflex I guess.

She nudged my leg and I sat up, leaving her some space so that she could take a seat beside me. “I am so psyched for the trip!” She yelped.

I viciously tucked a strand of hair behind my ear and sat up straighter. “Why?” I slightly snapped.

She smiled. “I don’t know!” She traced lines on her duvet. “It’s exciting I guess.”


“Well, you and Niall…”

“Alright, enough.” I cut her off.

“You guys are so cute.”

I scoffed. “Actually we aren’t anything because, well, exactly. We aren’t anything.” What the fuck?

Her eyebrows knotted together. “You guys aren’t anything because you guys aren’t anything?” She tested.

I gave her a warning look. “We aren’t anything, as in cute or whatnot because we aren’t anything as in an item or a couple or whatever the hell you want.” I tentatively explained.

She nodded sarcastically. “Right…”

“Kaylee I swear to god.”

She laughed. “I’m only kidding! Geez!” She threw a pillow at me.

“For fucks sake Kay! My nose!” I screeched, half laughing.
