It's terrible living with Karl. And it has only been two days! I wish I can run out of the house.
But Karl has been locking me up in the room.
Every day, Karl woke me up, kicking me. Then he told me to kiss him. Every time, I refused. Then he hit me.
I wanted to go to school. Then I would at least get away from that bully.
Tomorrow, I'll be able to go to school. I just had to get away from Karl.
Mrs. Dardison said to me, during dinner, "You'll be going to school tomorrow. Karl will lead you there. But he has to go to college, so you'll have to walk home by yourself."
Karl said, "I'm not in college yet. I'm studying to take the college test thing again."
Of course. I'm pretty sure all Karl did was bully kids.
I went into the bathroom and quickly took a shower before Karl could grab me and stop me from going to the bathroom.
But I had to get out of there soon. Karl would probably break the door then.
I took a shower and say down at the floor, with a towel wrapped around myself.
I checked my little watch to see what time it was. I had been in the bathroom for about thirty minutes now.
Sighing, I put my clothes on and went outside the bathroom.
Karl was waiting for me.
"You're my girlfriend. That's what I told the gang. You better act properly."
I just wished I can get away from him.
*The next day*
I went to school after Karl gave me his "morning hit."
I walked into the school building and sighed. I hoped no one would bully me there. One bully was enough.
A boy spotted me and walked to me. He had blonde hair and blue eyes. He was so handsome. He didn't look like he was going to bully me.
"Hi, are you new to this school? I've never seen you before."
I said, blushing, "I'm new to this school. My name's Amber Cox. What's yours?"
The boy smiled.
"My name's Niall Horan. Nice to meet you."
We walked together to the classroom.
Niall asked me, "Why did you come to Ireland in the first place? It's not really a place for studying."
I bit my lip. I didn't want to worry Niall.
Plus, I had never told anyone about my dad.
"My dad thought that it would be a great place for me to stay. He says it would be good for me."
He said, "Oh. So how's life like living here? Do you like the people you live with?"
That was hard. I had to say no, but then Niall might get all worried or be scared of me because I live with a bully.
I sighed and said, "Its great, Niall. Perfect."
It seemed like he realized that I wasn't telling he truth.
"Are you sure?"
We walked into a classroom. Niall went up to the teacher. He looked nice.
"Hey, Niall. What's up?"
Niall said, "Mr. Edwards, Amber is new to our class."
Mr.Edwards said, looking at me, "You must be Amber Cox. I'll introduce you to the class."
Mr. Edwards went to the front of the class and said, "Class, this is Amber and she'll be joining us."
Everyone was staring at me.
I said, "Hello, everyone... My name is Amber Cox and I came to Ireland a few days ago. Nice to me you."
Me. Edwards said, "Amber, you can sit next to Niall."
All the girls were whispering, "Lucky! She gets to sit with Niall.."
I sat down next to Niall. A boy sitting behind Niall was staring at me.
He had curly brown hair and green eyes. He didn't look that cute.
Niall turned around and said, laughing, "Harry, don't stare at Amber so much. She's mine."
I stared at Niall.
"Say what now? We're not dating! I met you half an hour ago!!! Even though you are cute."
He held my hand. I stared into his eyes. He stared into mine.
The boy named Harry shook his head.
"I don't think so, Niall. As she said, she met you like an hour ago. It's not going to work out."
Niall said, "You never know, Harry."
Another boy who was sitting next to Harry with brown hair laughed. I stared at him.
He said, "You are so lucky, Niall. You get the pretty girls."
Niall said, "It's the first time I got such a pretty girl, Liam."
The boy named Liam shook his head.
"This girl is worth hundreds of pretty girls."
Liam suddenly have me a little slip of paper. I didn't open it at that moment because Niall was right there.
Niall asked, "What is that, Amber?"
"I don't know. Liam gave it to me."
When school was over, the three boys crowded over me.
Harry said, "Amber, do you want to hang out with us? We are going to Liam's place today."
I wanted to go, but then I remembered about Karl. He expected to see me after school. The good time of the day was over. Now it was time for Karl.
I sighed and said, "I'd love to, but I need to go home. I have stuff to do."
It was quite obvious I wasn't telling the truth.
Niall raised an eyebrow and said, "Okay, if you say so. But can I have your phone number?"
I sighed and told him my phone number. We said bye.
I walked home silently. Karl was probably waiting for me already.
