(Read my other movellas- Texts.... first before you read this one))

Melissa's changed her mind. She knows who she wants to be with. THe one who she left broken hearted has found another girl and moved on. The Tomlinson family have a baby girl (Hailey) while the Styles family have a baby boy (Jake). Things between the 2 families are still tense and hate each other.

Just saying, it might be a bit boring at the start but believe me, it gets better!


21. Interesting



Tom and I were late to class. We should have left earlier. We both ran into the classroom. We were both panting by the time we reached there. Everyone stared at us like we we had just murdered a bunch of people. Okay then.......

"Sorry, we're late." We both mumbled before heading to our seats. Believe me, you don't know awkward when you've experienced this! We both sat down in our seats. I got my script for the play out of my bag and put it neatly on the table. DYlan's script, however, was messed up. all the pages were in the wrong order. Typical!

I looked at Dyaln. He gave me a dirty look and just scoffed before looking away. Just then, Mrs. Peterson began talking.

"So, as I was saying, we have decided to do a twist in the Romeo and Juliet play. We want to make it more....modern, I guess you could say. This way, teens will relate to it better. The basic plot will remain the same though."

Modern? How's genius idea was this? What's the point of trying to change a classic love story. No one can beat William Shakespeare's version of it. There's not point in arguing about it now. As I have heard, Mrs. Peterson is really stubborn and hates it when pupils question her ideas.

I just slumped in my chair and rolled my eyes.

"The plot of the story is this. The Capulet's, Juliet's family, are really rich. They think a lot of themselves and refuse to interact anyone beneath their class. The Montague's, Romeo's family, are really poor. They barely manage to afford a square meal each day. One day, Juliet's family have a ball. It is Juliet's birthday. Juliet's family have set up a rich and wealthy suitor for Juliet, called Paris. Juliet forces herself to fall in love with him. Romeo and his friends decide to invade Juliet's party. He sees Juliet dancing with Paris and falls in love with her.  He gets jealous of Paris. So he confronts him and tells him of his feelings towards Juliet. But Paris doesn't want to hear it. Romeo doesn't give up though. He introduces himself to Juliet. But Juliet, um... what do you teens call it.......'friend-zoned' Romeo. In other words, she ends up falling in love with him and Paris soon lets Juliet go. Then meanwhile, a huge argument is going on between the two families because both of their children want to get married. In the end, they sort it out and them two marry" Mrs. Peterson said. I bet her jaw hurts right now. Mine would.

This is nothing like the original story! At the end, especially. I'm supposed to die along with Romeo. Not just be part of one big happy family!

I was the only one, besides Tom of course, who was making notes on the plot and about the character's background.

"Now," Mrs. Peterson said once she caught her breathe back. "We are going to start rehearsing. You can use your scripts for now but this time next week, you should have all learnt you lines of by heart." Well...........she goes easy on us!
 The whole play? By next week?

Who does she think we are? Superman? Okay, maybe not the best comparison but that's the first thing that popped into my head.


This is a first. Hailey being late. It was 5 minutes into the lesson when she came running in. With Tom........ what the hell where they doing? Were they....? No. Hailey's not like that.  I pushed the dirty thought out of my mind. It made me really uncomfortable. Which is weird because I never give a fuck about girls. Once I've slept with them, they leave me alone and I leave them alone as well. Hell, if there's one thing that I know, it's that Hailey wouldn't just sleep around with boys like that.

But stil, why was she late? Why was Tom late as well? They're both dorks and are usually here before the teacher. I don't think it was a coincidence that both of them were late. They must have went out. That makes sense because when I woke up today, I found Hailey's bed empty.

"Sorry, we're late." Hailey panted. Her cheeks were bright pink and she kept taking huge breaths. For some really random and unknown reason, this turned me on. Don't ask why.

They both sat down in their seats which was opposite mine and Ashley's. Hailey looked at me for a second and I just scoffed at her. I don't want her to get the feeling that I'm suddenly going to be nice to her, even after what happened when we went out yesterday. This isn't one of those sick, soppy romantic story where the badass boy meets nice girl and he changes everything for her. No. 

The teacher then started to ramble on about modernising the play or some shit. I stared at Hailey. She was writing really quickly and furiously. Her nose was scrunched up a bit and I watched as her eyes move across the page as she was writing. She had gotten over her panting mostly. There was still a bit of sweat on her forehead. She must have run a lot from wherever she was at. I'll ask her later. If she talks to me.

I looked over next to me to find Ashley staring at me. Not discreetly. In fact, it was anything but discreet. It was getting really creepy.

"Uh.... can I help you.......?" I asked, giving her a weird look.

She seemed to snapped out of something and looked away from me. If I'm not mistaken, she started to blush? I just rolled my eyes. Mrs. Peterson finished rambling on about the play. Finally! 

"We're going to start rehearsing" She said. She then said that we have to learn our whole lines by next week. She really expects a lot from us. I guess Hailey was thinking the same because her eyes widened when she said that.

There was only 10 minutes of the lesson left. We had to use this time to look through the script and memorise our lines. I flicked through the script briefly until I came to a part that caught my attention.

Romeo: I-I- I love you, Juliet. I have ever since I laid my eyes on you. When I say, love. I mean more than friends. True love. I know my family is not really the same class as yours. But I love you. I don't care about society or what other people think. All I know is that I want to be with you forever. I want to call you mine. I-

*Juliet cuts him off by kissing him*

Juliet: I love you too, Romeo. 

*curtains close*

I froze. I swear my heart just skipped a beat. I know that's a cheesy phrase but I swear it did. I raised my eyes up slowly to look at Hailey. She was drinking water from her bottle whilst reading the script when she she froze and spat her water out on me. 

Something tells me that she read the same scene as I just did. I tried to hold in a smile. I was actually looking forward to this.

This is defiantly going to be interesting. 


Hey guys, I've just come back from my holiday. School starts this Thursday!!!! D: 

Sad times...... sad times.......

Anyway, I hope this long-ish chapter makes up for the late updates. Once my school starts, I'm only going to be updating once maybe twice a week. I think. I'll tell you guys ASAP. It depends on how much homework I get each day. But it's most likely going to be once a week. I'll tell you specific dates that it will be updated after I go back to school.
