Aunt Louise woke me up in the morning, explaining to me how she got me a job.
"Aria, I have news for you" She said, repeating herself every time I ignored her for my sleep.
"What?" I asked, rubbing my eyes and yawning.
"I got you a job in one of the nearby shops!" She said, happily.
"Oh...thanks Louise" I said.
"No problem. You work on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from after school to half past seven!" She said.
"Thanks" I said again.
"That's okay sweetie...I just thought you might want something to do" She said.
"What are you doing today?" I asked.
"Staying home to clean up the house and have a lazy day...Calum will most likely be going out again if you want to join him? He doesn't mind, he told me he had a lot of fun yesterday" She said. I didn't want to tag along with Calum and his friends...I didn't really belong with them...even though yesterday was one of the best days I've had in a while. Aunt Louise left the room and I checked the time on my phone. Almost ten. I had a message from Dane.
Dane: Can we meet today?x
Aria: I'm busy
Dane: Please...just for five minutes x
Aria: I can't...besides it isn't like you'd show up anyway
Dane: I don't know why I even try with you
Aria: You think you try?
He never replied.
I took a shower and got changed and put my make up on. I had no idea what I was going to do. It wasn't long before Calum came through to ask me to come out with him.
"I'm not sure..." I said.
"Please, everyone had so much fun yesterday...even you" He said. He was right...and I didn't really have much else to do so I agreed to go with him. Once he was ready we left the house and we started walking.
"Where are we going?" I asked.
"We are meeting Michael...Amelia is going out later with her family so she isn't coming out and Luke is packing since he is moving so It's just me, you and Michael today...is that alright?" Calum asked me.
"It's fine" I said.
We walked for about ten or fifteen minutes until we seen Michael leaning on a lamp post, on his phone, listening to music. Calum wanted to scare him but he seen him approaching him before he got the chance. We walked around for a while, not knowing what to do.
"I'm kind of hungry" Michael said. So we went to get food. We just got chips.
"So...how long are you here for?" Michael asked me.
"Umm...a week or so" I said.
"Cool..." He said.
"And she is going to have a lot of fun considering my mum got her a job, hahaha" Calum said. I punched him lightly on the arm for a joke and laughed with him.
"Where?" Michael asked.
"In a shop" I answered.
"I work in a shop, it could be the same one as me" He said.
"Hopefully not" I said sarcastically.
"Ouch...that hurt" Michael replied, returning the sarcasm.
I laughed. Michael was a cool guy.
We continued walking and talking before my phone started ringing. I pulled it out my pocket and seen that Dane was calling me. I didn't know to answer or not so I rejected it.
"Who was that?" Calum asked.
"I don't know it was a blocked number" I said, lying.
Then I got a text.
Dane: When can you meet me?x
Aria: I don't want to meet you ever! Leave me alone!
Dane: Why can't you just stop being so serious!
Aria: Piss off Dane
Dane: You were always such a bitch
I ignored him. It hurt enough already.
"Jesus, who keeps texting you?" Calum asked.
"It's her boyfriend!" Michael said, teasing me.
"No It isn't" I said, putting my phone away.
At the end of the day, Michael gave me his number and me and Calum went home.
"School tomorrow!" He said, making me groan. I hate school. I would have to see Dane...ughh.
"Don't remind me" I said.
"You will have to be up early to get there on time...and then you have work...sucks to be you!" He said, punching my arm playfully.
I went up to my room and packed my school bag before doing some last minute homework and taking a shower. Then me, Calum and Aunt Louise had dinner together. I was listening to music when I decided to text Michael so he would get my number.
Aria: Hey, It's Aria x
Aria: What are you up to?x
Michael: I was playing guitar but unfortunately I haven't yet mastered texting and playing guitar at the same time so now I am just texting...how about you?x
Aria: Hahaha, I just had dinner and I am listening to music. Should I leave you to play your guitar?x
Michael: No, it's fine...I was getting frustrated with it anyways...how's Cal?x
Aria: I don't know? Good I guess x
Michael: "Cool...well I might see you tomorrow in the shop, if you are at the same one as me...talk to you later?x
Aria: Sure x
I locked my phone and went to sleep. It was so nice to be able to fall asleep with no shouting in the background...and to not wake up during the night to more shouting...and then to wake up to it...I just hope It's like this when I go home. I hope.
