I went in form the next day. I sat next Cliff, a mate of mine. He stared at me so I stared back.
"What?" I asked.
"You never hang out with us anymore," he sighed and started to graffiti his planner.
"Blame Olivia," I rolled my eyes. "I don't really want to be around her right now.."
"Why? Because she snitched on you hurting her," Cliff sniggered.
"I didn't hurt her! Well I did but you don't know the full story so you can't have an opinion," I said to him. Cliff looked at me in a way as if to say, "whoa calm down".
"I'm sorry it's just, now I see things completely differently with Olivia, sure we were best friends but I don't want to friendly with someone who would do something like that to somebody like Nathan plus she lied to sir getting me into big trouble with my parents..."
"What's going on with you and that Nathan lad? You seem to be hanging about with him a lot!" He exaggerated. "Do you like him?" I shrugged, noticing that I'm starting to act like him.
"He's a mate, just like you," I replied.
"Yeah but... He's quiet and he's sort of a loser don't you think?" Cliff whispered to me.
"No, and I can't believe you're still using the term 'loser'," I joked.
"But seriously zo, Nathan's...."
"Well he's weird and different and nobody likes him!"
"You don't know if he's weird or not! You've never spoken to him or at least had him speak to you! You haven't got to know him so you can't judge him!" I argued.
"I'm just saying that if you continue hanging out with him, you're going to have less friends," cliff advised.
"Well if my friends are really that sad then I don't want to be their friends! I'd rather be around him then a million of people that don't care and don't listen!" I protested, feeling proud of myself. Cliff looked at me weirdly. He turned his back to me, of course! I did feel bad but kind of relieved at the same time?
