Ever since the talent show people have been talking to me more, being more friendly towards me. Since Monday Phoebe has been enrolled here. She's already made friends and is joining the cheerleading team as well. Eleanor gave her the idea, told her that it'll help her make more friends. I didn't have to tell her about Taylor because right away she hated her. Mostly because when we walked into school Monday she saw Taylor kiss Harry. I ignored it but she wasn't happy. Mostly because she thought Harry was indeed my boyfriend.
I sat in art playing with clay turning it into a sculpture. I was softly whistling a tune when I heard yelling outside. I looked at Zayn who also looked a bit confused. I whipped the clay that was on my hands on my apron. I followed Zayn to the hall to find Justin hovering over Niall who was on the ground with a busted lip. I quickly ran to him and knelt to his side. I whipped the blood off his lip and stared at him with worried eyes. I turned my head to see Justin walking away with a smug look on his face.
"Why don't you try picking a fight with me." Zayn growled at Justin. This made him stop and turn around to glare at Zayn. He started walking towards him but I stood up and got between them. Justin stopped about a foot in front of me. He had surprise locked in his eyes. He didn't say anything anymore he just turned around and walked right back away. I turned and lifted Niall to his feet. He smiled down at me before engulfing me in a tight hug.
At lunch I wandered the halls with thoughts flooding my mind. I couldn't think straight for some reason. I couldn't figure anything out. I wasn't sure if I still liked Harry or if I was just over him.
"Kenzie!" I turned around to see my sister running towards me. She had a huge smile across her face. I tilted my head and smiled.
"What Phoe?" I asked.
"Come!" She grabbed my wrist and pulled me to the lunch room. I groaned because I honestly hated running. When we got there we heard the last of Liam's rant it seemed.
"I swear to god if you mess with her feelings!" He growled and took Justin by his collar. "Or if you cause her any harm I will rip you to pieces!"
"Who's he talking about?" I whispered to Phoebe.
"Why do you care so much about her anyways?" Justin growled.
Liam didn't say anything he just pushed him away and turned to leave.
"Oh my god." Justin started laughing. "You like her don't you?!"
Again Liam stood silent and started balling his fist.
"The big ole' Liam has a crush on the little pitiful orphan girl!"
"He's talking about you Kenzie...." Phoebe whispered.
My heart stung. I suddenly felt anger boiling inside. Orphan? He called me an orphan?! The only one who knew about me feeling like an orphan when I was with my father was Elle and Harry. I entered the cafe with my fists balling up. I wanted to hit someone. Some tension left my body when Elle ran up to me.
"Ken! I swear I didn't tell a soul about you feeling like that!" I looked into her eyes and could tell she was telling the truth.
"I believe you Elle." She hugged me and smiled. Then I walked away and up to Justin. My hand slid across his face, causing everyone to gasp.
"If you have shit to say." I growled. "Say it to my damn face you prick."
He traced his cheek and looked at me with a shocked expression. I heard an annoying laughter so I turned around. Taylor was on Harry's lap staring at me and laughing. I walked over to them with my anger growing. When I got to them I grabbed Taylor by her hair and pushed her to the ground. Then I slapped him across his face. He looked up at me with a hurtful expression. I wanted to slap him again but Taylor tackled me to the ground. He pulled her off me and I sat up. Niall rushed over and helped me back up to my feet.
"Watch your back slut." Taylor hissed at me as I walked away.
