18. All Good Things Come To An End

- Chapter 15 -

Why do I have to go back to school again? Can't they wait until I'm ready, which is never! But hey ho life isn't meant to be that way, at least I'll have my friends with me. Oh, did I forget to tell you? Rosie, Eleanor, Erin, Helen, Reuben and Dean all moved here and now they are enrolled at my school, they'll show Charlotte and Laura not to mess with me, cos they be crazy. God you gotta love them! 

I finally decided to get up out of my warm, comforting, safe lair aka my bed, and stop daydreaming about how different life would be in Mialand and how I would be known as Queen Mia the Awesome Alexandra Coultas and every week we will have a day dedicated to Miranda, it will be called Miranday and it will be on a Tuesday cos Tuesday's are cool! 

"Mia, come on honey, you have to get up for school now!" An Irish voice travelled through the door, I smiled, he always puts a smile on my face. 

"Niall! You have just interrupted my daydreaming about mialand and Miranday! We are over! O-V-A!*snaps one's fingers in Z formation* mmmmmmmmmmmm" I complained jokingly. Niall entered my room with the most adorably cute pout on his face and big eyes that screamed innocence.

"I'm sorry your highness, please forgive me!" he begged, I put my finger to my chin pretending to think about it! 

"I forgive you and we are no longer over!" I declared, I smiled innocently at him and he shook his head smiling at his girlfriend's (ME) silliness and walked over and laid down next to me and pulled me into a kiss, it was sweet and passionate at the same time, I could sense worry behind the kiss, like he's worried that this might be our last, as if he's thinking I might slip into my old ways and push them all out. I'm not going to allow myself to do that I'm going to be stronger than I ever was before. I'm not going to isolate myself from him or the others! 

We broke apart and he rested his forehead on mine and stared into each other's eyes it was peaceful and serene! POSH WORD ALERT! Oh dear God I think there's something wrong with me. 

"Promise me something Mia, promise me you won't allow yourself to be hurt again because when you get hurt it doesn't just affect you it affects everybody who cares about you, we don't want to see you in the state you were in before and I don't want to have to be the one that saves you from slipping through my fingers. Mia you have taken a massive piece of everyone's heart and we don't want it back, if you did something to harm yourself you would be harming everyone whom you have managed to touch their hearts. Mia you could make the most grumpiest, resentful person on earth smile and love you. We don't want to lose you." he whispered, his voice filled with concern and care. A single tear rolled down my cheek. I mean that much to them? 

"I promise Niall, You all have a piece of my heart now as well!" I spoke softly "As much as I'd like to stay here all day, we have to get up for school." 

*Le Timeskip to lunchtime at school because nothing exciting happens on a morning at school* 

Today wasn't as bad as I thought, Charlotte and Laura haven't had a chance to get to me because I've been surrounded by my friends for which I am grateful but I have claustrophobia and that didn't help. At all! Right now we were sat on the field eating lunch when Dean came over and let me tell you he looked angry and upset. Oh no he's going to start feeling sorry for himself again!

"I wish I was popular and like every other boy, they get everything that they want!" he stated. Woah, what the hell is he talking about!

"But you wouldn't be Dean, you'd be a carbon copy of every other prick, sorry I mean boy, in school" Erin said.

"Being popular just gets you noticed for the wrong things, everybody knows who you are!" Eleanor reasonable added.

"I mean that I don't have many friends that are boys so I don't have that banter. You guys are amazing, I'm not saying you aren't" he said 

"sure seems like it" I mumbled getting angry, Helen put her arm round me.

"What banter do you want Dean? Going out drinking every night? Doing drugs? Objectifing women? Thinking girls are just toys you can play with? Why don't you start smoking you'll fit right in!" Reuben listed angrily, I think he got upset when Dean said he doesn't have banter with boys.

"Dean, we're not popular, ok? That's just how society works. We get classed as losers because we aren't a size 0, hide behind our massive egos and most importantly we aren't clones of each other, we are real, independent people. I'm not popular but I'm glad I'm not because if I'm honest I'd rather be a loser and have real friends than be popular with fake friends who end up stabbing you in the back!" I told him with my voice rising two decibels on every word. Niall pulled me onto his lap to stop me from getting too angry at him and doing something to hurt him. 

"It's worse for boys though..." 

"How the hell is it? Reuben doesn't seem to mind" I shouted

"Girls don't get called gay for hanging with boys but boys get called it for hanging with girls" he argued 

"Well you'd be like every other boy in the school and none of the real, genuine, down to earth girls will like you, and for your information one in ten guys turn out to be gay so you are more likely to be called gay in a group like that!" I retorted (A/N I don't actually know if that is true, I got the fact off pitch perfect and you can't believe everything in movies can you?) 

"I'm with Mia 100% on this. I'd rather have friends who like me for who I am than be friends with people because I fit into what society deemed normal" Eleanor said confidently 

"I just want that banter with boys..." he mumbled

"So, Dean what you are saying is that you would trade in your friends that will always be there for you just to be popular and have "banter" with the boys? That's just low." I said hurt evident in my voice " You know my auntie left me just so she could fit in with the parents from a private school her children attend, she left because I go to a state school and they go to private! So that hurts! I saw her a few weeks ago and she crossed over the other side of the road for god sake, just because she was with her "friends" that will leave once their children have left school! That really hurt, it made me feel worthless and disgusting, it made me cry and get so angry at myself for not being up to her standards when I realised no I shouldn't be angry at myself if she can't accept me for who I am or what I do with my life then FUCK HER!!" tears were now streaming down my cheeks and Niall tightened his arms around me.

"I wouldn't ever trade you guys in, you are my best friends" he defended himself 

" That's what your saying though, do you think that if you were popular you'd have any of the great times that we share? The crazy moments? The ridiculous arguments? Do you think you would be ALLOWED to do that? Would it be deemed acceptable in the popular rule book?" I responded 

"Mia's right it wouldn't! Tell you what Dean go spend a week with the 'populars' and see what it is like and who you would prefer to be with, and you ever get Mia this upset again and I will cut your non-existent balls off, blend them and make you drink it, okay?" Erin said, I smiled at the last part. 

"You know that you'd be called immature and be hated by everyone if you were to be yourself" Eleanor said

"I know, I'm sorry I'm just worried that's all" he said and I scoffed what the hell does he have to be worried about, he has friends he should feel lucky. 

"That's a load of rubbish and you know it! I'm not speaking to you until you have decided what you want to do, Dean and if you're so worried about hanging out with us is going to get you called gay, then you must think it yourself" I said and walked to my next lesson which was physics.
