8. The Cinema
School was rubbish. It didn't get better for weeks. Everyday I got picked up by Ali and met the others outside in the car park. People I had never met knew who I was. "The slut" "The whore" "What a slag" "She's that girl who cheated" "Player"..... I got stared at and pointed at. I couldn't escape it.
My friends were so supportive and stood up for me. Justin was always there..much to Brandon's annoyance. I found myself falling for him more and more each day but I couldn't act on it. No way.
We met up with Joe and Danielle to go see a film and we were all sat on the back row throwing popcorn. It was such a funny film. Part of me wanted Justin to put his arm round me but maybe he didn't like me too...or maybe he was waiting for the right time? Before I knew it, Danielle and Joe were making out next to us. I turned to look at Justin and we both laughed. He waggled his eyebrows suggestively. Was he joking or did he want me to kiss him? I really liked him, he actually cared about me. Maybe it's better to wait. I didn't know what to do!
Without thinking I rested my head on his shoulder and then immediately took it off.
"Hey, you can rest on me if you want to."
"No its ok, I don't want people to get the wrong impression." I said, hoping he would take my hint and say he did because he wanted us to be together.
"Oh yeah obviously. Ok don't worry!" He laughed, completely brushing me off altogether. Well that proved it...he didn't like me in that way. I was so confused about my feelings but I knew one thing, being dismissed by Justin hurt more than the whole school believing Brandon...
