Where was Niall and Amber? I was getting worried. Niall looked like he was in a hurry when he met us. He told us that he got to go.
Where did he have to go that was so desperate? I was in my own world, thinking about Niall and Amber when Mr. Jenkins, called my name suddenly.
"Harry Styles? What is the answer to number 19?"
I gulped nervously. I honestly didn't know the answer because I didn't know the question.
I said, "Red?"
That was so random. It may be a math question and if it was... That would be embarrassing.
Mr. Jenkins said, raising an eyebrow, "That is incorrect. The answer is Asia. I cannot believe that you thought Red was a continent. It is a color. But if you ask me what color your face is turning, red, would be the correct answer."
Everyone started to laugh. I was so embarrassed! Suddenly, the door opened and there, walked in, Amber and Niall. They were holding hands and looked so happy. Niall looked like he was on top of the world.
Everyone's attention went straight to Amber and Niall. Amber was squeezing Niall's hand.
Niall said, "Mr. Jenkins, sir, I forgot my homework at home, so I ran home and got my homework. But then, Amber fell down, so I had to help her get up and get the blood cleaned off."
That was a good excuse. Mr. Jenkins seemed to believe it.
"Okay, Niall. You two can sit down now. But you will be marked tardy."
They sat down at their assigned seats.
I could hear Amber whispering to Niall.
"That was a good excuse. I'm so sorry you were marked tardy, too, and had to go through that trouble. Thanks, Nialler. I love you so much!"
W.H.A.T. H.A.D. S.H.E. J.U.S.T. S.A.I.D. T.O. N.I.A.L.L.??????
Niall smiled and kissed her gently on the cheek as he said, "Love you, too, Amber."
Wait a minute....
W.H.A.T. H.A.D. N.I.A.L.L. J.U.S.T. D.O.N.E.????
Mr. Jenkins said, "Enough romance back there."
Everyone laughed. Amber looked embarrassed. Then, I spotted Liam. He looked shocked. His face was pale. He looked like he was about to faint. I bet he saw Niall kiss Amber.
He, too, looked heartbroken. But I kept telling myself that even though Niall had a head start, he might not win.
I felt sick. I had just seen Niall kiss Amber. And Amber SMILED!!! That was just heartbreaking. I love her so much. How could she do this to me? Had she read the note I gave her?
If she did, that meant that she hated me officially. That was basically dating in public. Not really, but you get what I mean... right?
I wanted to cry my eyes off. But I just couldn't do that. Then everyone would ask me why I did that and then I'll have to make some lame excuse.
Niall is so sweet. I love him so much. But I wonder what that note that Liam gave me said. I forgot to read it.
I decided to go to the bathroom and look at it.
I raised my hand and said, "Mr. Jenkins? I need to go to the bathroom!"
He told me that I can go. I walked out of the classroom and took out the note. Suddenly, Liam came out.
He said, "Did you read the note?"
I answered, "No, but I'm about to read it now."
He snatched the note from my hand.
"You don't need to read it! It would make me look stupid! I was stupid! I knew Niall would win! I knew he would!"
I asked him, "What do you mean you knew Niall would win? Win what?"
He shouted at me, "I love you, okay? And Niall broke my heart! You said you loved him! He kissed you during class. And you smiled! You guys love each other. It's all over for me."
Then, he ripped the note into pieces.
I said, "I'm only fifteen, Liam! It's not like Niall and I are going to get married or something! And he's not my boyfriend. He's just a friend. And so are you! Can't you just deal with that? Why does life have to be so complicated for me?"
I burst into tears and again, ran to the bathroom. Why was my life so complicated? Why can't I just live with my parents and not have to deal with this complication? I locked myself up in the stall, once more and wept.
This time, I knew no one could cheer me up. I was too miserable. Not even the teacher could persuade me to get out that moment.
What had I just done? I had set my love running to the bathroom, crying. I wanted to die. Why was life so complicated?
I walked into the girls' bathroom, and said, "I'm sorry, Amber. Can you forgive me?"
Amber shouted, "I hate you, Liam! You're so mean to me!"
That was basically telling me to go. I had to get Niall. He may be the only person that can calm her down.
I ran back to the classroom and sat back down.
I wrote: Hey Niall, I'm sorry but I sort of hurt Amber's feelings and now she's having a nervous breakdown in the bathroom. Can you get her to calm down?
Then, I passed the note to Niall. He read it and quickly asked to go to the bathroom. He looked upset.
What does Liam think he is? He said that Amber was having a "nervous breakdown." I mean, she's not mentally ill or something. He's so mean.
I walked into the girls' bathroom and heard Amber's weeping.
I said, "Amber? It's me, Niall. Are you okay in there? Whatever Liam did, it's wrong. He can get out of control sometimes. Can you please talk to me?"
"I don't want to talk to you right now, Niall. I'm sorry, but I'm just really upset at everything."
She was quite upset, I can tell. I only had one thing I could do.
I went into the next stall and climbed over to the one Amber was in.
Amber said, "Niall, I'm really messed up in my mind right now. I want to die. It's all too complicated for me."
I brushed the tears off her cheeks as I said, "I understand, Amber. I sometimes feel that way, too. But it's life. You need to deal with it. And no matter what happens to you... Remember that I'll always be there for you."
"Thanks, Nialler. It made me feel a lot better."
Then, she kissed me. My heart was pounding. It felt sooo good.
I said, "I love you so much, Amber. Remember that."
Then, we walked out of the bathroom and went back into the classroom. Peacefully.
