I walked into class not knowing what to expect today. I knew Darry wanted to speak to me and I was so nervous, we've never had a decent conversation face to face. Darry sat next to me, I was surprised. Throughout the 2 periods we gave eachother cheeky glances and a few flirty texts were sent. When the bell rang Darry got up and out of his seat so incredibly fast I felt intimidated. He told me to hurry as I packed and I rolled my eyes.
"Where are you taking me?" I asked, I felt a little frightened but the warmth of his hand comforted me.
I kept quiet after that, not only because I was terrified but also because Ellen was watching us as we rushed through the corridors and she was giving Darry a nasty look.
Darry took me to the old teachers staff room, it was supposed to become a new classroom but it hasn't been renovated so everyone calls it the abandoned room.
"Why here?" My voice seemed a little quiet, maybe too quiet for Darry to hear.
"I have to tell you something important."
I stared into his eyes, his beautiful brown eyes.
He held onto my waist and pulled me in close, I felt at home in his arms.
"You can't tell anyone" He whispered in my ear, sending shivers down my spine.
He looked into my eyes and I looked into his, I was speechless, every time I look at him I get lost within his eyes. He looked down and paused for a moment and then rolled up his sleeves. Cuts. So many, I was shocked. I can't believe it, Darry had harmed himself and he's telling me, out of everyone, ME? I had no idea what to do.
"When I was presenting my speech on Monday, I couldn't take my eyes off of you. I don't know what it was that attracted me to you, I just feel something I've never felt before when I look at you."
I started to cry, not because of what he said but because of what he showed me. The thought of him harming himself made my stomach feel awful and my head started to hurt.
"Don't cry baby girl, I don't want those tears staining your beautiful face."
That's it, that's what he was going to call me. Baby girl. I liked that, but still I was unsure as to why he told me this.
"Darry, why are you doing this?"
"It's your friends, they've been cyber bullying me for a while now and you're the first person I'm telling."
I can't believe this, those stupid, ignorant and evil bitches! How could I be so stupid to fall into their little trap.
"Darry, don't worry about them."
"This will be our little secret, baby girl."
He held me tightly in his arms, making sure not to hurt me.
Later that night I messaged Ellen and told her what he told me.
"What a fuckin' liar! Bae you know I wouldn't do that! He's full of shit! He just wants you to be miserable and have no friends, he always talks crap about you! I thought you knew?"
Something didn't feel right. I trusted Darry more than I trusted Ellen but then again, why would Darry like me?
"I know you seen me give him the dirties today when you two were walking through the corridors, I don't trust him being with you cos he hates you."
I couldn't believe this. I was so upset I turned my phone off and cried, Darry lied to me. Ugh I hate him so much. I agreed to never talk to him again, one part of me wanted to seek for revenge but another part just wanted to cry.
