1. New Student
I slammed my locker looking around the school, I've got one more year here then I'm finally out of this place, out of this town. I dream of becoming a professional volleyball player,
I don't really know if I'm good enough or not. I'm hoping to get a scholarship when the season starts. "Lex!" Liam calls from his locker, motioning me to come over to him.
"Hey. What's up?" I ask leaning against the locker. "Nothin.
I don't know where Abby and Louis are so wanna walk to class together?" he asks me grabbing some books from his locker. "Yeah sure." I say walking beside him. "I heard we've got a new kid." he says randomly.
"Really? Guy or Girl?" I ask him. "Guy I believe." he tells me shrugging his shoulders.
The bell rings.
"Oh shit were gonna be late."
I say grabbing him by the arm and dragging him down the hall.
We both quickly run into the class room. "Detention Hanson and Payne." The teacher says not even looking up from the papers he was grading. "How many is that for this week already? 3?" he asks both of us. We both nod our heads and make our way to our seats. I spaced out during the entire lesson and watched kids throwing paper at each other being immature. Thank god the bell finally rang because I was about to punch those kids in the face.
"That was fun." Liam jokes when we walked out of the classroom. "Honestly I don't even know what we're learning about. " I say moving the hair out of my face. "Alexa?" A voice calls from behind me. Liam and I both turn around, because nobody ever calls me that name only Lex or Lexa. My eyes meet the principal. "Yes?" I ask politely. Liam coughs awkwardly and suddenly finds his shoes very interesting. "We'd like you to come down to the office and help the new student around, we'd really appreciate it." She says smiling at me. "Uh yeah sure." I say, knowing she's not going to take no for an answer. I wave bye to Liam and mouth help me as she makes me follow her. "Now I expect you to be nice to him." she says to me before we fully enter the office. I nod my head but I'm not even really sure how I'll be to him.
As we walk in, the principal points to the boy across the room. My eyes travel over to him and I couldn't help but stare.
He was hot..really hot.
"Hi I'm Lexa." I say reaching my hand out for him to shake. "Zayn." he says simply as he looks up and down my body.
"Um. So what class do you have next?" I ask him eyeing the schedule he was holding.
"Science." he tells me biting his lip. "Ok good that's what I have as well so I'll walk with you." I say motioning him to follow.
"So..where are you from?" I ask. "Bradford." I study his face and quickly turn away when he catches me staring. "This is it." I say as we near the classroom. He holds open the door for me and allows me to enter first. At least he's a gentleman, as far as I know. "Hanson Dent- Who is he?" the teacher asks. "This is Zayn..I don't know his last name." I say looking back at him. "Malik." Zayn says chuckling and smiling over at me."Malik. Welcome to the class, have a seat over by Payne." he says pointing with his pen to Liam who was in the back of the room. "Come on." I say grabbing onto Zayn's wrist making him sit down. I could feel Zayn staring at me the whole class and I glanced over a few times hoping he'd stop but he kept his gaze.
