According to Who?

This is a story about a girl who has an extremely hard time in school, but gets help from two friendly girls and an incredibly handsome boy... In the midst of it all, she has to deal with the absence of her mother, who walked out on her father and her a few months prior.


9. Popcorn and Movies

"Soooo... What movie do you guys want to watch?" Alexis gestures toward the stack of movies she brought out.

"We have... The Notebook, Frozen, Catching Fire, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Host, Twilight, Identity Theft, Iron Man 3, and Avengers."

"That's all?" I ask appalled.

"Really?" Emily and Brandon say in synch and roll their eyes. (Creepy much?)

"I've seen all but Identity Theft." Krista speaks up. "Can we see that one?"

"Yes! Everyone on the couch now!" She commands. "I'm going to make popcorn!"

I jump over Brandon's head and plop down on the couch next to Logan.

He looks up at me and smiles that smile. The one that makes my legs not want to work right, and blows a few stands of hair out of his face.

I can't help the feeling of longing inside me. All I want to do, is run my fingers through his hair and feel how soft it really is, but I stop my hand as I feel it start to move upward.

"So. You're a goalie, huh?" Me, of coarse, being my awkward self, just had to make things weird by asking questions with obvious answers.

"Yeah, I started playing soccer when I was two." He smiled crookedly towards me. "You?"

"Four." I nod in the affirmative.

"That's cool." He seems genuinely interested. It's a weird feeling, because nobody is ever interested in me. Ever.

"Quit flirting and shut up! The movie is starting!" Brandon jokes and shoves Logan's head forward.

Brandon is siting in the love seat with Emily kind of draped across him, Krista is sitting in the recliner all alone, and I am half sitting and half laying on the long couch next to Logan.

"LADIES FIRST!!" Alexis calls as she walks out of the kitchen with seven popcorn bowls.

"Why do you have seven?" Logan asks, and lifts one side of his mouth in confusion. "There's only six of us."

"Wellll... When one of us wants more, they can just take this bowl." She explains this as though it is quite obvious.

"So in other words, that extra bowl is for you?" I laugh.

"You catch on quick!" She pats me on the head teasingly as she walks by.

"Shhh for real this time." Brandon tells us seriously. "Opening credits just came on!"


The movie ended at 12:43, and throughout most of it, I tried not to put my head on Logan's shoulder, or 'accidentally' grab his hand.

Almost everybody was asleep by the end, and I remember looking around and seeing Emily finally nod off into Brandon's arm. I remember looking at Logan, who at the time, was laying horizontally on the couch. I remember falling asleep with my head leaning back against his chest.


In the morning, I look around the room and panic. I don't remember where I am, and when I try to move, I am held down by a strong, yet soft and warm object.


I stare into the bright flash of light until my eyes adjust. When they do, I see Krista behind a camera, giggling.

"A picture? Really?" I try to move up again, but the object tightens around me.

"Mmm... Go back to sleep..." It says, making me jump. I look down at a half asleep Logan.

"What?" I question, as he struggles to push loose strands of hair from his face.

"Go back to sleep." He murmurs into my hair, and wraps his arms back around my waist.

It's then, that I realize how close we are laying. Logan's arms are tucked protectively around my waist, his head laying on my arm like a pillow. Our ankles are tangled together, and my other arm is hanging off the couch, with my head back on his shoulder.

"I can't." I whisper back after awhile. "We have to eat the delicious bacon that Alexis made."

That's all it took, and Logan was off the couch in 2.2 seconds. (Surprisingly, due to our mass of tangled limbs)

I decide to flirt, "So you'd dump me for a piece of bacon?"

"Of course," He teases. "Food is my first love!"

"Such a nice person." I remark sarcastically, but smile largely because he actually responded without blowing me off.

After I laugh at the sight of Logan making a frantic dash into the kitchen, I look toward the love seat, where Brandon and Emily are lying.

They look adorable, with their hands intertwined and cheeks pressed together. I just had to ruin the perfect moment.

'Krista took a picture if them already, right?'

It didn't matter anyway, as I was already running over to them. "Wake up, my pretties!" I screech and bellyflop on top of Brandon.

"Omff!" He lets out a breath of hot air, and rolls over on top of Emily.

"Get off me B." Her voice is muffled by my hair, now that we are all positioned in a way that makes it impossible to move.

"Help!" I cry out and giggle uncontrollably as Alexis walks into the room.

"I feel like I've missed something." She shakes her head in a dismissive manner.

"Breakfast is ready, dorks."
