"What the hell is it, Makenzie? I don't wanna deal with you right now." I slammed my locker door shut.
Makenzie scoffed. "I just wanted to notify you that, well..."
"Spit it out. And if it's not my problem, Lolo's problem, or any of the boys' problems, don't."
"The auditions for The Pirates of Penzance are coming up. And if you want a lead role, you're gonna have some serious competition." Makenzie flipped her pale blond hair back.
"Oh really? I haven't heard you sing a single note, or dance a single step. And if you're gonna be in a musical, those are kinda key."
"But I'm drama-reffic!"
What the fuck is drama-reffic? Isn't that just being a drama queen? "Whatever, Makenzie. If it comes to being a tie between you and me for the role of Mabel, you're most likely not gonna be the one to take it. And drama is not just another popularity contest. It takes work."
Makenzie stepped back in fear. "You mean...like...having to take time out of my schedule for this?"
"Yup. Too bad you don't have time 'cause you have too much time occupied with your friends."
If this was a cartoon, Makenzie would have steam coming out of her ears. "Whatever!" She finally said. "That play-"
"Musical! There's a difference!" I called back, hiding a smirk.
"Whatever! That musical was gonna be a load of shit anyway!" Makenzie stormed off.
God, I am so proud of myself. "Niall! Did you see what I did to Makenzie?" I walked over to Niall's locker, just across the hall from mine.
"Sure did. That took some guts." He smiled.
"Can I walk home with you? Our houses are only ten minutes apart."
"Of course! Come on." Niall swung his pack around his shoulder and put his hand over mine.
See Makenzie? You may have the heart of almost every boy in the school, but Niall belongs to me, Zayn is with Lolo, Harry is with Anna, Louis is with Carlee, and Liam belongs to Ashlyn. Beat that.
