I rolled onto my bed. I didn't want to deal with anyone right now. If Lolo came in right now, I'd probably scream in her face. My emotions were just too...weird right now. And I wasn't on my period either. My phone started ringing. It was Niall.
"Aw, come on..." I reached for my phone. "What do you want, Niall?"
"Were you okay when you logged off?" As usual, when there was a problem with me, Niall was there.
"What do you think?" I was not in the mood to talk, even if it was Niall.
"I just wanted to see if you were holding up is all..." Niall's voice trailed off.
"It's just that...um..." Niall was stammering again. "I...never mind." Niall hung up.
"What the crap was that?" I placed my phone onto my bed. I glanced over at my laptop. "God, what is wrong with me? I just need to tell him. But, then again, if I got rejected...
"Abigail, I have to go to voice lessons!" Lolo called from the door. I didn't say anything. "Okay. I'm going."
"You do that." I laid down on my bed. As Lolo drove off, I had to think.
What Niall told me that Makenzie had said about us...was it true? No, of course it was true! Niall wouldn't lie to us. But, would he? If his life was on the line, would he lie to us about something? I mean, even if he...he died, we would still...no, Abigail. NO. Don't think about him dying. Because even if he was going to, you'd save him. It's what we swore to as friends. And, maybe, it could turn into something...more? No way, that would never happen. But...why did I suddenly have feelings of love for Niall? A Facebook notification popped up. 'Makenzie Tio tagged you in a post', it said.
I wasn't ready for this. Nervously turning on my phone, I went to Facebook. The post made me cringe.
'ugh, Abigail Waters and Lolo Winchester are such losers, i soooooo can't wait for them to die' My mind was in horror. So Niall was right. There was another post about us.
'i cant believe that Abigail Waters even came to this school. why does she even bother? and what about the bitch on cupcakes, Lolo Winchester? everybody knows she's crushing on Zayn Malik, like, theres no hiding it'
Why do I even bother? I had enough. I tried to call Niall. He answered on the first ring.
"Abigail? What is it? Is there something wrong?" Niall's voice was worried.
"Can I come over? To your house? Just for a little bit?" It took almost all my courage to say those three short sentences.
"Sure! Is it okay if I pick you up instead?" I bit my lip. He said yes?!
"Um, yeah. See you in a few minutes?"
"Yep. See you. Bye, Abby."
"Bye..." I hung up. Why did Makenzie have to be the popular one? She was a bitch on wheels, powered by caffeine and attention from boys. If we were different levels of beautiful, but based on our personality, Makenzie would be the most hideous person on earth. Of course, One Direction would still be adorable, and me and Lolo would be the pretty ones. It was like Makenzie built her power on the souls of people 'lower than her', as she called it.
It felt like an eternity until Niall pulled into the driveway.
