5. Chapter 5

(Gisselle's POV)

Going to school today didn't seem like it would be all that bad, especially now that I know I have someone who actually cares if I show up or not. As I get my things ready for school, I can't help but think about Jennifer and everyone else. Do they really think I am worthy of becoming their friend? I didn't have much time to question it, because at that moment my mom called me downstairs to come and eat breakfast. When I got downstairs, I see Michelle and my mom sitting at the kitchen table eating pancakes with bacon and eggs. At the sight of the food my mouth started to water. I really did love me some pancakes, especially bacon.

I sat at the table, grabbing as much food as I can. I mean, who knows when your last meal will be, right? I quickly gulped down my food, not wanting to miss my bus. Once I was done eating I grabbed my bag and ran out of the door, yelling "bye mom!" over my shoulder.

"Whoa, Gisselle wait!" My mom yelled behind me but I was already down the street.

"Yo! Gisselle! You actually showed up!" Jorge practically yelled at me once I sat down at the table.

"Of course she showed up, she couldn't stay away from me. Isn't that right, Gisselle?"

"Oh shut up Johnny. Do you have to hit on every single girl that comes your way?"

No. Only the hot ones" Johnny said with an evil glint in his eyes.

"You never hit on me."


Everyone looked from Johnny to Angel, with shocked expressions. Johnny was smirking, and Angel was giving him a death glare.

Damn, she looks extremely pissed. Now i know what they mean when they say 'if looks could kill'.

"Um, well maybe we should all go get something to eat. Yeah, let's do that. We all tend to get a bit agitated when we're hungry." said Kathryn coming to the rescue.

Hearing the word breakfast snapped me back to reality and my head jerked up.

Breakfast? What? Shit, I already ate breakfast. But I would be lying if I said those pancakes weren't good. Should I say something? I'm afraid they'll hate me if I say I already ate. Calm down Gisselle. All I need to do is tell them i'm not hungry and make up a really lame excuse that is somewhat convincing. Yeah, I can do this.

"Gisselle! Hello? Are you still with us?"

I looked up and saw everyone giving me a puzzled look.

Shit, I did it again. Dammit can't you pay attention and stop daydreaming for just 5 minutes?!

"Um, yes?"

"Hey are you alright? You've been zoned out for like 5 minutes." Angel asked me with a worried look.

"Um yeah sorry guys. I was just thinking about something."

"Oh, well we're gonna go get breakfast. Wanna come?"


Fucking coward.

"Well come on then!" Jennifer said who, once again. dragged me towards the line.

The rest of the school day went by pretty fucking slow, if I do say so myself. As I was walking home I thought about what Jennifer said to me earlier.


We were in P.E. and Jennifer pulled me aside from everyone once we got into the locker room.

"Hey Gisselle are you alright? You've been acting strange and distant ever since breakfast. You know you don't have to be all scared around us, right? We're friends, you can tell us anything and we won't judge."

"Yeah, I know. It's just that I don't want to get too attached to people, you know? I've been let down and hurt most of my life, so I figured that if I don't let people get too close to me it won't hurt as bad. God, that sounds so fucking pathetic. Never mind me i'm just going through a tough time right now."

I felt something wrap around my waist and I froze up. Jennifer was hugging me. I looked down confused as to why she was hugging me. After a while I finally gave in, giving her a few pats on the back. I wasn't used to the feeling of someone besides my mom and Michelle showing me any affection. She finally let go of me and gave me a sad smile.

"I don't think it sounds pathetic. Everyone goes through tough times. Hell, if we didn't we wouldn't be really living life to the fullest now would we? I understand where you're coming from, and it's okay for you to think that way. But just know, i'm always gonna be here for you. All of us. Don't ever feel like anytime is a bad time. Just don't try and run away from us, or we'll find you."

I just nodded, not trusting my voice. We walked out of the locker room and went to our next class. She gave me her number, and just like that the conversation was never brought up again. She kept taking glances at me ever once in a while, as if I would disappear and never come back.

I've barely even known her for two days, but it seems like we've known each other since the beginning of time. At the end of the day she gave me one last hug, as if she would never see me again. She reluctantly let me go, and walked to her bus. I waved her off and began walking toward my house.

*end flashback*

I know what she said was true, but I can't make the same mistake that I did in the past. No, not this time. This time i'm gonna make sure I won't get hurt again before I even consider letting them in. I sighed. I need to stop this. it wasn't fair to Jennifer, or any of them. I was letting my past get the best of me. I know they would never try to hurt me, but it doesn't hurt to be a little cautious. I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket, and looked to see who it was.

Jennifer: Yo Gisselle! Me and the Scooby Doo gang are gonna hang out at Angel's house this Saturday just because we can. Wanna tag along? Wait scratch that. You're coming. I'll text you the details on Friday.

Gisselle: Wait! I need to ask my mom first! What if she says no? What if I have something to do this Saturday?

Jennifer: She'll say yes....... If you have something to do on Saturday then cancel it. Duh. Have anymore excuses?

Gisselle: I can't just cancel it!

Jennifer: Do you have something to do on Saturday?

Gisselle: ........... no.

Jennifer: That's what I thought. I already told Angel that you were coming. You don't have to bring anything except yourself. See ya tomorrow! :)

Tch, there's no arguing with this girl. She'll never give up. I sighed. Oh well. I'll have to ask my mom and see what she says. Most likely if she does say yes, she'll want me to take Michelle with me. Now don't get me wrong I love my sister, but she can get a bit annoying real fast. I walked up to my house and noticed that my mom's car was parked in the driveway.

Huh, that's weird. Usually she doesn't get home until like 7. I wonder what she's doing here so early.

"Mom i'm home!" I yelled as soon as I stepped inside the house.

"Oh Gisselle! How was school today?"

"It was okay. What are you doing here so early? You usually don't get home until 7."

"I tried to tell you this morning but you rushed out the door before I got the chance. I was getting off early so I could finish unpacking all our stuff."

Oh. Oops. I regret nothing.

"Oh. Well do you need any help?"

"No it's fine!"

"Oh okay then. Hey mom, can I go to a friend's house this Saturday?"

When I said the word friend her neck snapped towards me. I thought she was gonna break it with how much force she used.

"Friend?" she said with her lips tugging up into a smile.

"Yes. It's this Saturday and we're just gonna hang out and basically do nothing all day. Not a big deal."

"Sure. Just make sure you let me know the details before you leave."

"Really? I mean, thank you!" I ran up to her and gave her a hug while she laughed.

"Okay okay!"

"Thank you! I said one last time before I ran upstairs to my room and shut the door. I plugged in my speaker and blasted Breaking Benjamin. I lay down on my bed and slowly drifted off to sleep.
