I went to school alone today because Ben wanted Phoebe to ride with him. I felt a bit disappointed that no one invited me along. I mean I am family too. I guess since my mom never talked about me Ben doesn't believe that I am indeed her daughter. I felt two arms on my shoulders. I turned my head to see Niall's arm on one side and Liam's on the other. They smiled down at me which caused me to smile warmly back at them.
"Where's Phoebe?" Niall asked.
"With Benjamin..." I mumbled.
"Who's that?" Liam asked.
"My step brother..."
"Is he nice?" Niall asked.
I shrugged and sighed. Niall walked me to my first class after Liam gave me a hug and headed to his. I leaned against the door staring at me feet. Then I felt someone hug me tightly. I looked up to see Elle. I smiled and hugged her back. Louis was talking to Niall about something with a look that worried me. I noticed at the end of the hall Perrie kissed Zayn and made her way over to us. She was smiling brighter than the sun.
"Something wrong?" I asked Louis as we entered the classroom.
"N-no.." He lied.
We sat down and the girls started talking about the game later tonight. I was dozing off and drawing in my note pad. I started feeling like I didn't belong anywhere again. School was starting to become my worst nightmare and home I felt like I was a stranger.
"Earth to Ken.." Eleanor waved her hand in front of my face breaking my thoughts.
"Yeah?" I questioned.
"Wanna hang out today before the game?"
"Sure." I smiled softly.
"Great then you can come!" Perrie said happily. Maybe she was happy that Zayn didn't have to sit alone and be bored. I don't really know. I noticed Harry wasn't in class today, neither was Taylor. They're probably at his house fucking or something. Ew Kenzie did you really just have that thought?! I feel extremely sick now.
"Wait isn't today homecoming?" I asked.
"How'd you forget?" The girls giggled.
"Ugh then that means..." I groaned. Prep rally. Gross. I always hated those things. The next couple classes went by pretty fast until lunch appeared. I wandered the halls because I knew that Phoebe was with Benjamin so she wouldn't need me. I felt someone fiercely push me against the locker. The lock dug into my back causing a spark of pain to fill my body. I flickered my eyes to see some of the football players standing around me. I felt someone slap my face knocking me onto the ground. I held my cheek and tried to fight the tears that were arising from the pain.
"Don't you know it's rude to hit a girl?" I turned my head to see Benjamin bending down next to me extending his arms.
"So!? That bitc-" One of the jerks started saying but Ben punched him.
"Don't call my sister a bitch." He growled.
"Kenzie..." Phoebe bent down next to me helping me up. "Are you okay?"
"Yeah I'm fine."
"Makkie!" I turned my head to see Niall running towards me. He stopped in front of me and placed his forehead against mine. His hands were on my cheeks as he stared into my eyes. "I'm sorry I couldn't live up to my promise..."
