As I pulled into the parking lot of school, I spotted a familiar set of light brown curls, by the front door. I quickly fixed my curly hair, and adjusted my black sheer top, jean jacket, and dark blue skinny jeans. As my blue Vans padded along the side walk, my books in my hand, I became more anxious to see Ashton.
Although him and I agreed to become friends, (Sort of...), I think Friday's events changed things.
Well at least I hoped they did... As I got closer to Ashton, I saw a set of blonde curls in front of him. His arms slowly wrapped themselves around her waist, causing the girl to giggle.
"Oh Ash, so mean of you to lead little Whisp on like that." The blonde girl snickered, closing the little distance between the two with her lips.
The way my name rolled off of her tongue mad me boil with anger. You could hear the venom in her voice, making me more angry by the second.
"Whisp?" Ashton's voice rang through my head.
It was only then that I realised I had been staring at the two this whole time.
"I.. Uh.." I stumbled to find the right words to say.
"Listen I'm so-" I cut Ashton off with a weak smile.
"Hey... It's alright. Not like we were a thing or something... It was stupid of me to think you would want someone like me..." Before he could answer, I sped off to Flex Block.
Where was all of this coming from?
Ashton was too confusing. One minute we're fine, the next he's mad at me, or trying to make me feel bad.
Maybe this is his way of saying he doesn't want anything to do with me.
I made my way to my Chemistry class for Flex Block, and bumped into a familiar friend, on his way to the same class.
"Hey Whisper. Nice to see you again." Seth smiled.
"Hey Seth." I grinned at him.
"Listen Whisp, I was wondering if you'd like to go out tonight? Dinner, then maybe I can take you somewhere? Like to a movie or something?" He laughed nervously, running a hand through his black fringe.
I smiled up at him and nodded my head.
Maybe some time with other people would be good for me.
I made the last adjustments to my outfit as I looked in the mirror. I had on a grey Adidas sweatshirt, with spandex leggings and grey Timberland boots. I had my hair down in the tight spirals it was in this morning and added some more mascara to my eye lashes.
After approving my outfit, I heard the door bell ring, and rushed to answer it.
I expected to see Seth, but was greeted by Ashton.
"Oh... What do you want? I asked, looking past him to make sure Seth wasn't there yet.
"I wanted to apologize. I'm sorry, I shouldn't have used you like that."
"See, that's where I'm confused Ashton. There was never really another girl. Who was she anyways?" I asked, crossing my arms.
"Grace." He replied looking down at me.
My mouth opened slightly, and I blinked a few times.
"Oh." Was all I could manage out.
"You okay?" He asked, leaning his perfect fame against the side of the front door.
"Why wouldn't I be okay?" I asked him. "I mean we hooked up a few times, but nothing serious. Not like you actually meant something to me."
It pained me to lie to him like that, but t the time, I didn't know what to do.
A look of hurt flashed through his eyes and he skimmed my own. searching desperately for any signs of emotion.
Seth pulled in beside my dad's truck and gave a honk.
"I gotta go." I mumbled, pushing past Ashton.
"Where?" He asked me?
"I have a date." I told him, walking down the old planks of the deck.
"With who?" He asked, running to catch up with my quick steps.
