♡ Grace's P.O.V ♡
"What are you doing?" I stand up from my seat.
"Why, are you scared Gracey?" He chuckles while making his way over to me.
"Don't call me that."
"Oh, i'm so scared. Please, i'll call you whatever I want to. Now, what's going on with you and Zayn?"
He's now standing in front of me, and i'm beginning to wonder why he asked such a random question.
"Why do you care, jealous much?" I laugh.
Niall glares at me and begins to walk even closer to me. I back up while he does so and before I know it.. Niall has me pushed against the wall.
"Me, jealous? Gracey, if I wanted you so badly.. I could have you wrapped around my finger already." He puts his arms over my shoulders, so that his palms are pressed against the wall and he's hovering over me.
I feel my nervousness take over me and swallow.
"But think about it.. If I wanted you, think about the ways you've never been touched. Oh, how you'd do things you've never done before." He grins and I can feel his hot breath trickle on my skin.
He rubs the side of my face and our faces are only inches apart.
"Niall, why do you hate me so much?" I ask.
He laughs softly, and whispers.
"Because, you're not like every other girl in this school. And that triggers me, into treating you this way. I'll see you later, Gracey." He winks and exits the room in such a quick amount of time.
So many questions are spinning in my head, and I can't seem to understand why Niall was all over me like that. If he hates me so much, why would he even tell me what it'd be like if he wanted me? God, I hate him. But.. The way he speaks to me, with nothing but confidence. The way his breath cause my skin to get goosebumps, and how a single smirk of his can have me swallowing something that feels like a huge lump in my throat. It's all so attractive to me..
Snap out of it Grace, he's nothing but a jerkface asshole.
I check the time to see that there is only a few minutes of class left before lunch starts, so I leave the room and head to my locker. I put my books inside, and when I close my locker door I see the blonde girl I met at the beach.
"Hey Grace!" She flashes a pearly white smile.
"Hi, Hannah, right?"
"Yeah, that's me. Wanna have lunch together?"
I nod my head.
We walk down the hall and head downstairs to the cafeteria. She walks over to a table and I notice a few of the faces sitting down at it.
"You already met Jason and Mark, and Nikki was there.. But was too rude to even introduce herself." Hannah sighs.
"Shut up Hannah."
I begin to remember the Nikki girl, by the red highlights that pop out from her raven hair. She was the same girl that stood quiet that day, and didn't even bothe to say hi.
"Yeah, she doesn't talk to much people.. And she doesn't like much people anyways."
"Just so you know Grape, or whatever the fuck your name is.. I don't like you either." Nikki says rudely and walks away from the table.
"Don't worry about her, she's always like that to everyone." Mark laughs while taking a bite of an apple.
I take a seat with Hannah and try to ignore the fact of how disrespectful Nikki was to me when I don't even know her.
"Just great.. Horan's coming." Jason mutters.
I flinch at the name and look where Jason's eyes are glued. Niall is making his way over to our table with a horrid grin on his face.
"Why'd everyone get so quiet once I got here?" He smirks and sits down directly across from me, next to Mark.
"Because none of us particularly like you." Hannah laughs.
"Ouch. I'm not so sure if that's completely true.. Right, Gracey?"
I feel my face become shocked at his hilarious choice of words and I shake me head.
"I don't like you either Niall."
"Hmm, but you barely know me." He lifts an eyebrow up.
"Oh, but I do. You're nothing but a ignorant jerk that only cares about himself and is a complete asshole to everyone else all of the time." I say harshly.
"Oh shit, Grace just put you in your place." Mark nudges Niall's arm and laughs.
"Shut the fuck up you faggot."
Mark stops laughing and stays silent.
"Since you swear that you don't like me.. I have an idea." He half smiles.
"And that is?"
"Do you believe your smart, Gracey? Like in academics.."
I nod my head.
Of course I am, I ace basically every class of mine and I am pretty damn proud of that.
"Good, so.. If you get a perfect score on your next history test.. You have to stay with me for 21 days and do whatever I want you to do for me. Since i'm so mean to you. And after those 3 weeks, you can tell me whether i'm still mean to you." He laughs and smirks.
I think carefully about what he just proposed.. Stay with Niall Horan, for 21 days? I'm not sure if that's the best idea.
"I don't know.."
"Hm, looks like Gracey over here is doubting her smart skills." He looks over to the rest of the table and back at me.
Oh hell no, he better not involve my knowledge into this situaution.
"Fine, i'll do it."
"So, if you don't get an A+ on your history test, you'll do whatever Niall wants you to do at his place?.. For 3 weeks?" Hannah asked.
I could see the playful grin on Niall's face and I couldn't stand it. He really thinks i'll lose.
"Yeah, that sounds right." I gulped.
"Your crazy Grace.." Hannah began to shake her head.
Deep down inside.. I know she's right. I am crazy at this point. But i'm pretty sure i'll get the A+, and it would be great to defeat Niall. I just can't stand a single thing about him. He's so full of himself, and sickening. I'd do absolutely anything to see him crumble.
"So, it's a deal?" Niall asked while sticking his hand out towards me.
As much as I want to think this all through again, I decide not to.
"Deal." I shake his hand and quickly pull my hand away from his.
There's no going back now..
