"Yeah, I think I'm fine," I said, getting up, and collecting my art supplies that I held in my hands.
"What class are you in such a hurry to cutie?," Harry asked me.
"Uhh, art," I answered.
"Are you sure you want to go there? Perhaps you'd like to have more fun, like, get out of this stupid school?," Harry said pushing me against the lockers.
"Awe Harry, cut it out! Let the girl go to her class..!," Niall said.
"Okay, okay...," Harry said and backed away.
"Harry go outside and I'll meet you there..okay?," Niall asked, and Harry nodded, leaving me and Niall alone.
"Sorry about that, he's a pain sometimes....are you okay though? Did you hurt yourself when you fell?," Niall asked concerned.
"Yeah I'm good," I said.
"Well, see you later Mary," he said and walked away.
See you later?? I mean there is just art left and then I'm done with school for the rest of the day.....why see you later? I thought as I made my way down the hallway. And why was the school's biggest asshole being so nice to me? Questions raced around my head as I made my way into my art classroom. Thank God I wasn't late!!
"Hi, I'm Mrs. Stewart...your name?," the teacher asked me kindly. The teachers here were so nice!
"I'm Mary-Ann Smith," I said and she written my name down on her notebook.
"Nice to meet you Mary, please take a seat next to Zayn...he'll be your partner for the rest of the semester," she said nodding her head towards the black-haired boy. I shyly sat down next to him.
"Hi Mary," he said quite friendly, as I sat down.
"Hi Zayn," I said smiling. Well so far so good. Ashton is my partner in all my other classes and Zayn now, will be my partner in art.
"Okay class today we'll start by drawing or painting our favorite spot...not so hard...so, hop to it!," she said.
Well she was friendly.... and strict too.
~ 1 hour later ~
"Bye Mary, it was nice working with you," Zayn said as we made our way out of art class.
"Bye Zayn, same to you," I smiled, and made my way to the parking lot. Before I exited the door, I noticed two boys in the gym room.
Niall and Harry.
I don't know what made me spot dead in my tracks and I watched them work out on the mechines. Niall noticed me and winked, which made me blush just a little. Harry also noticed and quickly got up and came out the door.
"Hey cutie, wanna come inside?," he asked.
"No, I-I'm going to meet some friends right now..," I said.
"Aw, come on in just for a minute..??," he asked. Why was he asking me to go inside the gym room??
"Niall and I wanna talk with you," he said, like if he was reading my mind.
"I can't. I really got to go," I said turning around as Harry grabbed my arm.
"Wait just a minute! I mean, we would like to invite you to our party this Saturady," he said, "You know like a first week of school party."
"Umm, I'll think about it," I said. He let go of my arm.
"Well tell us as soon as you make up your mind," he said and turned around to go back into the gym room.
Great! The biggest assholes asked me to one of their parties! But why are they being so nice to me? Probably because I was new and they thought I knew nothing about them. I wonder if I should go...? Maybe I should ask the guys...nah, they'd probably say no. Especially since what happened to Ash's girlfriend at Niall's and Harry's party. I walk out of the school and look around the parking lot and notice a purple-haired boy running up to me.
"Hey," he smiled.
"Hey, where are the others?," I asked.
"That's a question I thought you'd answer for me," he said looking around, "After band ended, I went to the bathroom and couldn't find them afterwords."
"Can't you call them?," I asked.
"Oh right, haha, thanks for reminding me...there's this thing called a cell-phone, right," Michael said and dialed someone's number.
"Hey Ash, where you at?," he asked, "Oh I see. Oh okay, see you there!," he said and hanged up.
"What?," I said.
"They left without us, guess we're walking. They're at the cafe, right around the block, not a really long walk," he told me.
"But why'd they leave us?," I asked.
"Ehh, they do that sometimes, I mean...,"
".....HEY GUYS WAIT UP!!!," Calum said running from behind.
"Where'd did you come from?," I asked him.
"I went to my locker because I forgot my phone there, and when I returned Ashton and Luke where gone and Michael wasn't in the bathroom so yeah," he said out of breath.
"Well, Luke and Ashton are pretty mean to leave us three to 'join them' in the cafe," I said jokingly. The guys laughed.
"Yeah, they're mean," Michael agreed.
"Hey guys listen, I want to tell you something," I said.
"What's up Mary?," Calum asked.
So I told them about the incident with Niall and Harry in the hallway, including Harry pushing me up against the lockers and then how me and Harry talked by the gym room about the party.
"So, you think I should go to it?," I asked.
"Well, me and Michael got invited too," Calum said.
"Yeah," Michael said.
"Are you guys going?," I asked.
"Are you?," Calum asked.
"That's what I'm not sure of," I said.
"Yeah I'm guessing I'll go and I could keep an eye out so they don't hurt you or anything," Michael said.
"Calum, what about you," I asked him.
"I'm still thinking about it," he answered.
"Oh okay. Well I guess I'll go too, now that I know Michael's going and so I'll know someone there," I said.
Michael smiled at me.
~ At the cafe ~
"So your going right?," Ashton asked.
"Yeah, I mean, how bad could it be? Zayn, Perrie, Eleanor, and apparently long-gone Louis, are going..," Michael said.
"Well, yeah, just Michael keep an eye out for Mary, she is new so they, Harry or Niall,will try to get her, you know what I mean," Ashton said.
"Yeah I know," he answered, drinking his tea. My phone started ringing. It was my old friend Sarah.
"Hey girl!," I said smiling.
"Hey, what up bestie?? How's London?," she asked.
"Um, it's okay I guess. I made some nice guy friends here...and yeah they're showing me around town and yeah," I said.
"Oh well I'll call you later so I don't disturb, they're tour of the town for you," she said laughing.
"Yeah okay, call me around 9, k?," I asked.
"Okay! Love ya bunches!!," she said and hanged up. I put my phone down to see all the guys looking at me blankly.
"Oh, that was my friend Sarah, from Ireland," I told them.
"Ahhh, makes sense now," said Ashton.
"Who'd you think it is?," I said.
"Emmmm, no one, just.....yeah. Your from Ireland, right?" he said.
"Yeah, why you asking?," I asked.
"Niall Horan's from Ireland too," he answered.
"Oh," was all I said, maybe that's why he was being nice?
"So what's he doing here?," I asked, "Can you tell me more of the 'school assholes'?,"
"Okay, so Harry's parents are off visiting a relative in the US for the next year or so....she has cancer and they want to spend as much time as possible with her. So Harry was left with the whole house to himself...it's quite big, the house. Anyways he throws parties and stuff...yeah. Niall's parents sent him over here, cuz there is a college were he wants to study at here, so that's what he's doing here...since Niall's and Harry's parents are close friends," Ashton explained, and all the other boys nodded.
"Oh, I see...," I said, and thought it over in my head, what Ash just told me.
~ half an hour later ~
I stretched out in my chair, me and the boys have gotten into a deep conversation and I was starting to like these boys more and more. I looked at the time 7:00 p.m.
"Guys, I think I'll be heading home now," I said.
"Aw, want me to walk you there?," Ashton offered.
"No, it's okay. I'll be fine, I live two blocks away, it's not far," I said.
"Okay, see ya tomorrow Mary," Luke said.
"Bye guys," I said and walked out of the cafe.
First day of school wasn't that bad after all. I made cool friends and was invited to some party by total strangers known as the school's assholes. I sighed as I made my way up the hill leading to my house.
