When we got home from school me and Austin finished out homework and watched a couple movies. We are watching Love Comes Softly right now. And we hear someone knock on the door. I get up and open it and....
"Why aren't you dressed?" He asked kind of angry and confused.
"For what?" I asked confused.
"The party. I told you, you are going with me." He said annoyed.
"No, I'm not. I'm staying in my house wearing comfortable clothes with Austin and without you!" I said annoyed.
"It's either you go with me to the party or I'll stay here with you and Austin will go to the party."
"How about you go to the party and Austin and I stay at at home!" I spat. I can't help but be mean. It's what I'm used to. Why is he trying to be my friend now?
"I want to go to a party" Austin yells as he runs to their car.
"Are you coming now?" Niall asks hopeful.
"No! I'll stay here by myself."
"No! Let me stay with you please. I'll be quiet and be good I promise." He practically begged.
"Um.. Okay?" I said confused.
I let him in the house and waved the boys goodbye. Niall just silently went over to the couch and sat down on the couch and started watching the movie.
I grabbed my stuff off the couch and moved it to the leather chair and sat there. And started watching the movie also.
"Am I that bad?" Niall asked kind of sad.
"What?" I asked confused.
"You can sit beside me you know." He said as a matter if fact.
"I know. I just .... Like the chair better."
"You sat on the couch with Austin. Why not me?"
"Niall, what's your problem? So what if Id rather sit with Austin was my best friend and you are just some mean guy who calls me names." I said. Why is he acting like this? What's wrong with him? I mean I know he said he liked me at school but 'I honestly think he's high or something. Maybe he still is.'
"I'm not!" He spat.
"Did I just say that out loud?"
"Yes and I'm not high and I wasn't high. I just like you okay? You're never fake with me. You tell how it is. And you don't care what I say about you. I'm sorry by the way... About all the things I called you." He said sadly. I can't tell if he's lying or not though.
"But why are you all of a sudden apologizing?"
"Because... I. Like. You. Okay? I like you." He practically spelled it out. I just got up and went to the art room and locked the door.
Why is he doing this to me?? I don't understand him?? How could he start liking me?? Ughh!
I started painting. Each time the brush hit the canvas it started to look more and more like a girl hugging a guy while another guy is holding her hand.
I hear yelling at the door. "Leela open the door."
I obeyed. He came in and just stopped when he saw the painting.
"Austin's hugging you. But whose holding your hand?" He asks confused.
"I don't know.. I just started painting."
"Oh.... Look I see the way you look at Austin. You like him. He's you're safe spot. But aren't you tired of being safe? Let's go live. Just me and you forever. Let's leave right now." He says energetic.
"And go where?" I say more sarcastically.
"I don't know lets just go. Let's leave!"
"No Niall. You're being crazy."
"But you'd go if Austin was the one asking you to go with him." He spat. And he just left. Left me. Left the room. Left the house. I saw him out of the window take off running since he didn't have a car.
