Lunch came quickly, which meant I had to hang with the popular group again. I reluctantly made my way to the group. Luke wasn’t going to be there, which I don’t know if I should be happy or upset about. I mean, the only reason I agreed to be here was so I could try and be friends with him again.
I awkwardly stood with the group, shifting my weight from foot to foot. Ash stood, looking bored. I looked at him, guiltily. He hated these people, and he was hanging here for me, so I could be friends with Luke again. But there seems to be no point, since he still hates me, maybe even more than before.
Suddenly, Abby stormed in, glaring at everyone.
“Where the fuck is Luke? He promised to buy me my lunch today,” she screamed, breathing heavily.
I stared at her, stunned. I guess Ash was as well.
I wonder why she hasn’t lashed out at me yet. Maybe she’s just ignoring me purposely, or she hasn’t spotted me yet. I guess it was because she hadn’t spotted me yet, because suddenly she averted her eyes in my direction, glaring.
“WHY THE FUCK IS THIS LITTLE BITCH HANGING AROUND US. SHE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE ALLOWED TO BE AROUND US, LET ALONE BE ALIVE.”
My breath hitched in my throat as I attempted to not cry in front of everyone.
“Hey hey just leave her alone, let her be,” Ash calmly said, obviously trying to stay calm.
Abby just huffed, glaring at Ash and stormed off.
“Make sure to tell Luke to meet me when he finally comes,” she called over her shoulder.
I looked down at the ground, still trying to recover from her sudden outburst.
“Hey, u-uhm, I-I’m sorry about Abby, s-she could get a bit angry sometimes,” someone stuttered, making me look up in surprise.
Michael awkwardly stood in front of me, obviously not sure if what he just did was right. I kept staring at him, surprised he bothered to apologise to me.
“And I guess I’m sorry for how I’ve been treating you, I guess. I actually don’t think you killed your mum,” he said, grinning sheepishly.
I kept staring at him, trying to process what he just said to me. Did Michael really just apologise to me? The person whose been giving me a hard time for the past years, the person Luke calls his best friend?
I finally recovered from my shock, smiling slightly at him.
“It’s ok, I guess,” I said, embarrassed.
“Let’s start over yeah? Hi, I’m Michael Clifford, and I really hope we can be friends how,” he said, grinning cheekily.
I grinned back at him, shaking his hand. “I’m Natasha, and I also hope we can be friends from now on.”
