Finally, the lesson was over. I sighed with relief when the bell rang, and quickly started packing my stuff away. Ash was beside me, doing the same. I was about to make my way to the music room, when I remembered.
Ash and I were hanging with the popular group now.
I don’t know how I feel about it. Nervous, excited, happy, scared, probably all of them at once. Ash grabbed my hand, and started leading me to the group.
We approached the group, Luke, Calum, Michael and everyone else. Basically, to get into this group, you just had to be attractive, well-liked, fit, and sporty. I wasn’t any of them, so it felt pretty awkward to be standing around them. Some of the girls started eyeing Ash and my intertwined hands, probably because they took a liking to Ash. I tried to wriggle my hand free from his grip, but he just held on tighter. Eventually, I sighed, giving up.
“so,” Ash started, looking at everyone. “How do you guys spend your lunchtimes? Do you spend them picking on everyone else, or just parading around the school trying to get everyone’s attention?”
They nervously laughed, looking around at each other. Ash just rolled his eyes at them, sighing.
Suddenly, one of the girls looked at me, disgusted.
“Why the fuck is this bitch here. We don’t want a messed up person in this group,” she said, nose in the air. I cowered back, scared.
“So Tashy, do you mind hanging around here. If you want we could easily leave this place right now,” Ash said, glaring the group, daring them to do something, knowing this little group ‘needed’ him.
The girl who lashed out at me growled, glaring at us both. Ash just simply smirked, while I looked between them both, scared.
Eventually, she just left, with 3 other girls trailing behind her. Ashton stared after her, amused at her behaviour. I tugged on his sleeve, scared to death. What was the point of us being here if all we were going to do was make them mad? What if I started being the reason Ash gets picked on as well?
Ash looked at me, worry filling his face when he saw my scared expression.
“W-why are we here, if all we’re going to do is annoy them?” I whispered.
“Woah, check it out, that freak TALKS,” Calum exclaimed, staring at Luke with a surprised expression.
I looked down, embarrassed. Ash’s grip tightened, glaring at them.
Finally, the bell went, which for the first time was a relief. Next class was music with Mrs. Jones, and I was beyond happy.
Ash and I basically sprinted to the room. We made it on time, which really was a big achievement for me. Mrs. Jones grinned when she saw me, making me grin back at her.
The rest of the class slowly came in. not many people liked music, they say it’s boring and useless.
Mrs. Jones started writing things on the board, not paying any attention to us. Suddenly I felt something hit my back. I turned around, and spotted a scrunched up piece of paper. I slowly opened it, scared for some reason.
“Go to hell, a bitch like you who killed her own
mother doesn’t deserve to live anymore.”
Tears started to come. I don’t know why, since this gets said to me a lot.
“Damn, that freaks crying. Such a fucking idiot,” Luke sneered, with Calum laughing next to him.
Suddenly, Mrs. Jones slammed her book down, and started making her way to Luke and Calum.
“Now listen here, just because the whole school likes you, doesn’t give you permission to harass the students you dislike. That will be a lunchtime detention for both of you,” she hissed, making Luke and Calum loose the smirks on their faces.
Mrs. Jones made her way back to the front of the class, giving me a small wink. i looked down, smiling. Ash was smirking to himself, trying to not laugh. This is probably the happiest I ever am. Being with the two people I care about, while learning about the thing that I love most.
