Michael's POV |
I looked up to see if the teacher actually wanted to talk to me and Grace together. Grace got up, smiling at me. I stared at her, looking at her smile and her blue eyes as she walked towards the door.
"Clifford!" The teacher yelled waving me over to the door. I followed Grace after she shortly left before me. I quickly looked back at Ashton as he watched me walk towards Grace, he looked shocked, wide eyed.
"So, Grace your marks last semester was average but you could use some help of the vast electric field" she said to Grace as she nodded her head, the teacher turned to me as I was watching Grace. "Michael, you have the same problem, you can't electric field the organisms properly as Grace can she just struggles to to find out what each organism is in each group. So I was wondering if you could help her out and then You, Michael will do the same for Grace" she nodded smiling at Grace. "Miss are you sure, I studied a lot more for this exam" Grace mumbled, but it was still audible. "I am Grace, I know you worked hard on this exam but you just didn't quite get there." The teacher spoke. "Oh ok thanks" she said quite disappointed. The teacher walked back inside to get the next group of students.
Before Grace could walk inside I pulled her arm softly pulling her to the side as looked at me with confusion. "Hi" I said nervously. "Hi" she giggled. Oh god I love her laugh. "I'm Michael" I spoke adjusting my shirt. "Grace" I was tempted to say 'I know' but I thought it just sounded a bit creepy. "If you want I can help you out?" I said offering her help. "Uh i don't know. I guess so" she said unsure wether she wanted to let me help her study. "And if you wouldn't mind I would really love your help to, you know?" I smiled pulling at my sleeves. "Yeah of course, I guess we both really need the help. Thanks" she said smiling as I winked at her.
"Sorry about before I wasn't watching where I was going" I said trying to start up a conversation. "It's ok, well we better get inside, I'll see you later then?" She said titling her head to the side. "Sure" she walked inside as I took a deep breath quickly fixing my hair.
I walked back inside and sat down. I looked over at Ashton who was watching me along with Calum. I shrugged it off and looked at Grace who looked back and smirked at me.
The bell went 30 minutes later. I grabbed my bag and walked off with Ashton and the guys. We walked to our spot on the field sitting down and talking about the gig we had that weekend.
Grace's POV |
HE WINKED AT ME.
I screamed in my head for the last hour, unable to think i tap my finger on my water bottle as Scarlett talked me through her story about her boyfriend ditching her for a concert. I couldn't think about anything besides the fact that I needed to study with Michael some time soon. "AND THEN HE'S LIKE 'Oh I had these tickets for ages, It just kind of came up, I mean seriously" Scarlett said basically screaming at me. I loved Scarlett she was my best friend, me and her are the same age 17. I've known her since I was 3 when our parents met up at day care, we kind of clicked and were inseparable since then. "Oh sorry, I guess he went with the situation wrong, instead of him saying 'it just kind of came up' he could of said like 'aw baby I promise that I'll make it up to you'" we sat laughing as we tried our best to mimic her boyfriend.
I closed my eyes for a bit the silence made me think of the fear of going home I knew that when I step one foot into my house I would get abused, some one brought me back out of my thoughts when I heard someone clear their throat...
