I sat in the principles office with him giving my a disappointed glare. School was almost over then Harry had training and I had cheer practice, but I highly doubted I would be allowed back on the team.
"I take it you are here to try and convince me not to expel you, yes?" He questioned as he sat down behind his desk.
"Yes, Sir. I just can't begin to explain -"
"No need." He stopped me before I could give a heart felt speech that would allow me to stay. "I've given it a lot of thought and I will not expel you. You have been expelled twice already and clearly that does not do any good. I have made a list of proposals if you are to stay." I nod my head gesturing for him to continue. "Your position on the cheerleading team will be terminated, you will be required to be on the prom comittee, you will need to attend all school events that happen on school grounds and actively help out at whatever even it may be, this includes school fairs and sport events. Lastly you will also be suspend for the rest of this week to think about your actions and to let everything cool down. Is that clear?"
"Yes. Yes! It's perfect thank you so much for not choosing to expel me." I thanked him rather quickly very excited that I got to stay at the school that I actually was starting to grow fond of.
"It's okay, I know you are not a bad student- you are a great one in fact. I've seen your previous school reports and you have outstanding marks, its such a shame and I would not want to see any of that go to waste."
"I promise I won't let it go to waste." I sighed of relief, he nodded towards the door letting me exit his office and the bell rung just on time. I was a little out of place not in school uniform like everyone else but my adidas tracksuit was much more comfortable. I pulled my double Dutch braids to hang over each shoulder rather than hanging down my back. My hair seemed to look extra long when I wore it like this and I liked that.
"Maise!" I heard my name being called as I walked out to the field and I saw the boys were on their way to the change rooms. Liam was walking in the opposite direction towards me. He had discarded his school bag and his gym bag was swung over his right shoulder. I smiled as he engulfed me in a hug wrapping his arms around my shoulders. I immediately responded missing his touch. I hadn't talked to him since the previous day because I was simply too ashamed. "How are you today beautiful?" He asked as we stood there not letting go of each other but pulling away so we could see into each other's eyes.
"I'm actually a lot better." I say sending him a bright smile. "I didn't get expelled." I squealed excitedly even though that's not exactly the type of thing people would be thrilled about.
"That's great!" He chuckled placing a sloppy kiss on my forehead. "How we celebrate your non-expulsion on Friday night?" He suggests cocking an eyebrow as he looked down on me. I giggled like s little girl nodding my head and his sly smirk turned into a gorgeous grin.
"Just tell me when and where and I'll definitely be there." I stated and gave him a quick peck which made him turn red. He was blushing.
"I'll pick you up at 6 and it's a secret but wear something nice yeah? Elegant."
"It's a date!" He bent down and pulled one hand to lift my chin as he placed a longing kiss on my lips making me feel pure bliss. We started walking towards the school with his arm draped over my shoulders and my arms laced around his waist as we happily walked towards the change rooms.
"Are you going to practise?" Liam asked as he saw the cheer squad stretching. Eleanor was giving me death threats with her eyes as I stood next to Liam, in fact the whole team was.
"Uh I actually got removed from the cheerleading sqaud." I said awkwardly avoiding his gaze feeling a bit silly to put it that way.
"Principle Carter is a dick, but you're more than welcome to join training with us coach won't mind." Liam suggested, I liked the idea of showing off to the boys but I thought it'd be best to stay out of trouble.
"I'll just watch." I stated. "Now go get changed." He kissed me on the cheek before jogging off to the change rooms. I watched as all the boys started to do their stretches and Louis' eyes roamed me as they always do, could he not? I sat on a bench right next to the track and on the edge of the field.
"Okay boys line up we're running through the course today!" Coach yelled after he blew the whistle and the freshman standing near him flinched at the sound of the whistle making me chuckle. The older boys were infront being followed by the sophomores and freshmen who were obviously new to the team, They were clearly just the substitutes and only needed when a player was benched. They tried to keep up but Harry was the lead being as fast as he was he ran laps with ease doing the drills in between like it was nothing. That's one thing I envied about my brother: endurance. He was nutorious for how long and how fast he could run, it was almost inhumane.
I made the mistake of looking over towards the cheerleaders and I saw Eleanor strutting her way towards me, the boys were all to busy doing their drills to notice. I sighed and mumbled, 'Here we go.' underneath my breath. "Maisie, last time I checked expelled students are not allowed on school grounds." She sasses as she stood with her hands on her hips. I stood up trying to look tougher but not entirely matching her height.
"Well that is true but I don't see anyone around here that is expelled." I shot back raising my eyebrows at her. I was determined to keep my cool but that didn't mean I couldn't be a smart ass.
"Som of a bitch let you off easy." Anger was clear in her voice, her eyes narrowed and her arms crossed over her chest as she took a step towards me. I could she used make up to cover up the bruises on her neck but the nail marks were evident in her cheek. "This is my school you prissy little hag! So help me god I will get you thrown out before you can even start your senior year."
"Ladies is there a problem here?" Liam asked as he jogged over covered in sweat but still draped an arm around me raising his eyebrows in Eleanor's direction.
"Course not Liam we were just talking things out. Well I better get back to practise!" She chirped skipping off.
"Bitch." I muttered.
"God I don't even know why Louis dated her." Liam laughed. Louis and Eleanor? "Just had to make sure she wasn't bothering you, I have to get back to training."
"Thank you, now go Coach doesn't look to happy about your disappearing act." I chuckled pushing his chest slightly and he ran off joining in where he left off. I was so lucky to have a guy like him. I know there was still a lot I had to learn about him but u didn't mind. He was the good guy and I just knew it.
"Hurry up Harry I want to go home." I ushered him as he was taking a while chatting to all the guys.
"You're a pain in the arse." He stated as he waved goodbye to the boys and both he and Louis walked to his car. "By the way we are giving Louis a lift so you're in the back."
"Fine fuck you too." I mumbled the insult hoping he wouldn't hear it but apparently he has elephant ears.
"Masiolla Margoret." I slammed the door as I got in sending him death glares for using my full name. He only used it if he considered I was being extremely rude or unesscecary, which I was I supoose.
"Your full name is Masiolla Margoret?" Louis questioned biting back a laugh as he climbed into the front seat. I immediately kicked his seat which cause him to break into a laughing fit. I huffed and crossed my arms as I leaned against the window ignoring his outburst.
"Harry got the good middle name." I mumbled which Louis surprising heard between his fits of laughter.
"What is it?"
"Harry Edward Styles." I stated flatly. His was normal and elegant. Mine sounded like the name from the 18th century.
"Not bad. Mine used to be Louis Troy Austin but Now it's Louis William Tomlinson." He explained making me envy him too.
"At least you guys have normal names."
"Yours is unique." He was fully serious as he stared out of th window. "Being unique is ten times more beautiful that being normal." He whispered the last part as if it was just for me to hear and I'm sure Harry did not hear that.
Being suspended was extremely boring for me seeing as my mother saw it as a chance to do chores whilst both my parents were at work. I scrubbed the floors, did the dishes, dusted, did the laundry and mowed the lawn. Then I would just collapse and feel no effort to do anything else but read a book or paint. This continued for the three days that I was not at school, cleaning, collapsing and colouring. Though this helped the time pass quicker and soon it was Friday night. Liam did text me every afternoon and we'd have a conversation before bed but I was not allowed out so I didn't get to see him.
It was four o'clock when I decided to take a shower and start getting ready for my date. I wrapped my hair up in a towel and started digging through me dresser to find some lingerie, just for in case. I decided on my favourite black lace thong and matching push up bra. I just pulled on an oversized t-shirt because I was planning on doing my make up first. I sat infront of my mirror but the lighting was horrible so I opened my curtains the full way rather than the just half way as they were. I noticed Louis' curtains were slightly open and being as curious as I was u tried to peek through, I saw him hunched over with one hand on his best post and his bare back was facing me. His other arm was infront of him but I couldn't quite make out what he was doing. He then quickly reached over and grabbed tissues that were an arms length see and his back muscles seemed to relax as he stood up straight. He threw the tissues in the bin and started zipping up his pants, well that's what it looked like. Was he just? Oh god. I realised what he had been doing and scurried away from the window sitting infront of my dresser and started moisturising my face.
My make up was but elegant with neutral eyeshadow and perfect winged eyeliner, my lips were slightly over lined and covered in a light brown matte lipstick. I pulled the towel off of my hair and started to blow dry my short dark hair which I simply straightened. My dress was a long sleeved black maxi dress that had two small slits as each side on the bottom letting me walk freely. I felt it was some what planned so I added a golden belt and some black heels. I was twirling infron of the mirror when Harry barged in.
"Woah." His eyes shot open when he saw me. "Fancy date tonight then?"
"Yes, Liam is taking me somewhere." I giggled. "How do I look?" I asked worriedly as I spun around to give him a full tour of my outfit.
"Like a respectable young woman." He said with a light smile and I couldn't help but hug my brother. "Liam is one lucky guy, he better not do anything stupid or I will beat his ass." Harry laughed as I pulled away shaking my head at him.
"Liam's good." I told him and I heard a knock down stairs which my mother immediately answered.
"Hello I'm here to pick up Maisie?" I heard Liam's soft voice echo up the stairs and I grinned to Harry as I started making my way down stairs. I smiled as I saw Liam standing there in a dark grey button up shirt rolled to his elbows and a pair of black jeans hugging his legs. I saw his face lit up when our eyes locked and he scanned my body up and down roaming with his eyes.
"Mum this is Liam." I smiled shyly knowing she would embarrass me somehow.
"Oh so this is the one you've been talking about so much, I can see why!" She laughed and I felt myself blushing at her remark. "Now go on, don't keep her out too late."
"Bye mum." I rolled my eyes trying to bite back my annoyance and amusement as I stepped out of the house.
"Goodbye Ms. Styles." Liam politely waved as we walked towards his car. "Your mum's a trooper." He laughed shaking his head as he opened my door for me. I thanked him and got into the car as he ran towards his side and hopped in. "You look absolutely stunning by the way."
"You don't look too bad yourself." I teased and leant over his seat to give me a passionate kiss. "So where are we off to tonight?"
"Still a a secret."
