I woke up, not wanting to go to school more than usual. I groaned, knowing I’ll have to go through a whole day of school without Natasha, since she’s still in the hospital. I quickly got ready, wanting to arrive earlier than Michael so he won’t be able to kill Calum. As much as I hated that Calum, I still didn’t want Michael to kill him.
I succeeded in arriving before Michael, but not knowing what to do, since there was no one around for me to hang out with. I wandered around the school aimlessly, waiting for Michael to arrive. A couple of groups of girls huddled together, giggling and glancing at me. It got pretty awkward, since I wasn’t use to this.
I awkwardly leaned against a wall, looked down at my phone to see if Mike had texted me yet. Luckily he had, saying he’s waiting for me at the front gates.
I basically ran to the front gates, desperate to get away from all those girls.
I saw Michael leaning against the gates, lazily looking around for me.
I waved to him trying to get him to notice me. He saw me, and started to make his way towards me.
Anger was visible in his eyes, as he stormed over.
“Now where the fuck is Calum Hood, I’m ready to beat the shit out of him,” he growled, suddenly spotting him.
He marched over to him, dragging Calum by the collar into a deserted area in the school, me following him.
Calum struggled against Michael’s grip, but it was obvious he wasn’t strong enough.
Michael threw Calum against the wall, glaring at him.
“I’m pretty sure you know why you’re here,” Michael growled, glaring at Calum.
Calum looked pretty clueless, trying to make sense of Michael’s sudden outburst.
“Uhm, no?” he replied, looking even more confused and scared when Michael punched the wall next to him.
“You know exactly what you did. You hurt Natasha, making her end up in hospital. And we’re not gonna you get away with this,” Michael growled while getting closer to Calum, making him shrink back against the wall.
I stayed a short distance away, not wanting to get in this middle of this, yet wanting to be close enough to stop Michael if he decides to beat Calum up.
If I wasn’t mistaken, Calum looked, guilty. This surprised me, though it was obvious Michael was too angry to see this, since he grabbed Calum by the collar, ready to punch him.
I quickly stepped in, yanking Michael back, causing him to get go of Calum.
“What the fuck are you doing,” he hissed, anger still present in his eyes.
“Don’t you see how guilty he looks,” I hissed back as Michael turned to look at Calum.
Suddenly, Michael’s shoulders sagged as he crumbled down to the ground, surprising me and Calum.
We continued to stare at Michael for a while, until I turned to Calum, squinting.
“Why do you look so guilty,” I asked. “I thought you’d be proud that you hurt her, or at least feeling a bit pleased with yourself.”
He sighed. “I only treated Natasha that way so Luke would still be my friend. If I didn’t do that, Luke would start spreading rumours about ME. I KNOW that Natasha didn’t kill her mother, I knew Abby was lying when she told Luke and me that Natasha was bullying her, I mean, I was also Natasha’s friend back then. And though I wasn’t as close to her as Luke, I knew she wasn’t the violent type, but if I didn’t go along with Luke, he’d also spread rumours about me, or do something worse,” he said, his whole body sagging. “I feel so bad, seeing her in this state, knowing I was part of the reason she’s like this today. I feel so bad,” he said, burying his face in his hands. “I’m so sorry,” he mumbled.
A silence came over us, none of us moving or making any sound.
After a couple of minutes, Michael finally turned to Calum.
“If you really are sorry,” he said, staring at Calum, “then go tell her yourself.”
