1. The Bet
"Lizzie you know I don't like One Direction!" I exclaim, throwing a pillow at my best friend's face.
"Cassie!" She screeches, I am suddenly hit with a wave of sadness, that's what my dad used to call me.
"Don't call me that." I snap, remembering all too well the late nights in the hospital.
"I'll make a bet with you. Tonight if you fall asleep first then you have to listen to One Direction. If I fall asleep first I will stop bugging you about it." She smirks, knowing that I spent eight hours at softball practice and stayed up till 1 in the morning. I am exhausted.
"Deal." I sigh, willing to risk my sanity to get her out of my hair. "We will start the official contest in two hours! We have to watch Ways to Live Forever tonight!" She adds, and I race to get popcorn as she starts the movie on my laptop.
"Noooo!" Lizzie and I cry out as the movie rolls into the credits.
"He can't just... Just..." I stutter, we break down, sobbing at Sam's death.
"He was so cute!" Lizzie murmurs, pouting.
"Contest time..." I sigh, propping myself up against my neon purple wall. "
Oh yay almost forgot!" She jumps up and down.
My eyelids immediately start to close but I force them to stay open. I sigh in defeat as my eyelids close involuntarily, I can already feel the boy band tearing at my sanity.
