"So , you know the project ? I was thinking that we could maybe do a collage , but I'm not really sure," I mumbled. "I like you!" John whispered. I smiled. "Hilarious joke." He looked at me. "Seriously , I like you. It's not a joke!" He exclaimed. I sighed. "Well , what do you wanna do for the project ?" I asked him.
"Hey , Lauren. How'd your project go last night ?" Aidan asked. I shrugged my shoulders. "I left an hour earlier than I should of. Me and John kind of had a small argument. I really like John and I know that he doesn't like me that way but I just can't help but imagine it happening and every time I do , I get upset!" I explained. He hugged me. "Just talk to him. For me ?" I smiled and walked through the school gates.
Ew , I've got science first lesson. "Hey , Lauren. Can I ask you something ?" Alex sat next to me. I nodded my head. "Would you kinda ask John to prom ? He told me last night after you left that he was gonna ask Bethany but , you know , she's a little... Revealing. If ya know what I mean. And he said because you don't like him like that , he can't go with you. So , please go with him!?" He explained. I walked to the empty seat next to John. "Hey , look , about last night. I just really need to talk-" he stopped me from talking. "Don't worry about it. It's fine , I get it , you don't like me the way I like you. We'll just be friends. I'm cool with that." He walked and sat next to Alex. I slammed my head against the table. Why don't I just keep my fucking mouth shut! I wish I'd never spoke ! I walked out of class and into the yard. "Hey Lauren !" Alex shouted. "What the hell happened back there?" I sighed. "He practically said he'd rather go with some stupid slut. You wanna know something ? I was being delusion , ya know ? Actually thinking that me and John had a shot together. We don't have long left , proms on the 26th of June. I just give up ! I give up with everything ! My life's just a whole mess!" Alex engulfed me in a hug. "You're life's amazing ! Don't worry , he likes you! I know he does," he whispered. I pulled out of the hug. "He's right. He told me , Lauren," James explained. I wiped my tears away. "What does it matter anyway ? He's probably asking Bethany as we speak..."
"Lauren ?" Mr Styles asked. I looked at him. "Can I have a new partner for the project ? Me and John kinda had an argument," I asked. "Wait , why ?" I sighed. "I don't really wanna talk about it. So , can I have a new partner ?" He looked at me and sighed. "I'll think about it." He walked back inside.
"Hey John , this is really important. It's about Lauren. She really just needs-" he sighed and looked at me. "Lauren doesn't wanna go to prom with me , I know. She doesn't like me , I know. Can you stop rubbing it in !?" He shouted. "SHE DOES LIKE YOU !! She can't stop thinking about you. Don't you get it ? When she tried to talk to you before , she wanted to explain. But now , she thinks you've already asked Bethany to prom. Which is in 30 days ! So , go get your girl!" I walked out the classroom with John to find Lauren.
