Luke and I were sitting in his car eating cinnamon rolls and drinking coffee. I drank milk cause I don't like coffee.
We had a box of cinnamon rolls sitting between us. School started in thirty minutes so we were waiting for the guys to get here. I had my feet propped up and the dashboard as I took a bite from my third cinnamon roll. We listened to the music playing from the radio, it repeated the same songs.
"Can you put good music on?" I asked.
Luke changed the station. 'Go Go Go' by Sleeping With Sirens began to play.
"Yes! I love this song," I said.
We listened and watched blankly out the windshield window as the school parking lot began to fill with students and their cars. A car parked next to Luke's but I didn't bother looking, I was too engulfed into my food.
Damn this roll was good.
I heard someone knock on my side of the window, I turned my head and Calum stood there, smiling back at me. I let out a small laugh and rolled down the window.
"It smell like cinnamon in here," Calum said.
"What the hell! You guys bought a box of cinnamon rolls and you aren't sharing?" Michael asked.
I turned my head into the other direction and Luke had his window rolled down too. Michael and Ashton stood on the other side.
"We were going to share, we just waiting for you guys," Luke said.
Calum reached over me and grabbed a cinnamon rolls from the box. As he was I quickly pecked his cheek.
He gave me a cheeky smile.
"You're so cute, babe," He said.
"Do I get a kiss on my cheek too?" Michael asked.
"Hey, she's my girlfriend," Calum said.
"But she's my sister," Luke said.
"What's that have to do with anything?" I asked.
Luke shrugged, "Just thought I had to point that out."
"Okay, let's ignore that and just eat," I said.
Everyone agreed and grabbed some rolls.
"These are amazing," Calum said.
"And still warm," Ashton pointed out.
They finished the cinnamon rolls and had fifteen minutes until school started. We all got out. I swung my backpack over my shoulder as the other got their backpacks from their cars. There were a few people still in the parking lot, other than that it was empty, no sign of students. Everyone was already inside.
I had on my favorite AC/DC shirt. It seemed relevant because I was currently on the highway to hell.
We weaved our way through the parked cars and towards the school's doors.
Luke said that Rebecca still wasn't back on Friday, so I'm sure she'll be back today. I don't want to deal with her crap, so I just hope she leaves me alone and doesn't talk bullshit.
We walked through the school doors.
Everyone fell silent. Really? Don't they only do that in dramatic high school movies?
"Just walk," Luke said.
And I did.
"She punched Rebecca Green in the nose," I heard someone whisper.
"But she deserved it, Rebecca is a bully," someone said.
"That's a really bitchy move, Rebecca didn't do anything," a girl spat.
"I know right, I heard that Helen started the fight," Another girl said.
Surprised they even know my name.
"Helen is so fucking stupid, wow."
I ignored them.
"Don't listen to them," Calum said.
"I'm not," I replied.
Suddenly a girl rushed into my path. She had a big smile on her face and had black glasses on. I stoppd walking since she was blocking my path.
"Don't listen to Rebecca's army of minions. I saw your fight and she clearly started it. She got what she deserved she is really mean. Can't believe she slapped your brother Luke," She said and stared up at Luke dreamly.
She obviously had a crush on him.
I laughed, "Thank you, I guess," I said unsure of what to say.
"Oh, you are very welcome," She quickly said and walked away.
"Okay," I said slowly.
"Let's just get to class," Michael said.
We agreed and continued our journey to our English class.
We walked the long hallway and took a turn and opened the door to our class. We walked in and everyone stared.
I spotted Rebecca. She had a few bruises and had a white strip of cloth across the bridge of her nose.
"Well, well, and the Hemmings return. Looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, now does it?" Ms. Dawn said.
"It's not my fault. I was just misunderstood. Sometimes when people piss you off and they take action first, you just gotta fight back," I replied and walked past her desk and towards the back of the class.
We all sat in our usual spots. I tried my best to stay out of the radar of Ms. Dawn, but that didn't stop her from calling on me even though my hand wasn't raised.
Looks like I can't escape the world of teenage drama that easily. I huffed. This was going to be a long day.
We were sitting at our table where we usually eat our lunch. I was annoyed to the max. Everywhere I went everyone stared. And it was getting old and pissing me off.
I took a deep breath and took a drink from my cold water.
I saw a few heads turn in my direction and return to their conversations. They were making it obvious that they were talking about me and Rebecca and the fight.
"You okay?" Someone asked.
But I couldn't hear, it was as if their voice was at the end of a tunnel.
"Helen?" It came out like an echo.
"Helen," I heard Luke say.
I snapped out of my daze, "What? Sorry I spaced out."
"I can tell," Luke said.
"Are you okay?" Calum asked.
"Yea," I replied and gave him a small smile.
"I was just thinking about things."
"Don't listen to the, Helen," Ashton said.
"Ash is right, Helen, it's not your fault Rebecca started the fight," Luke agreed.
"Yea, just ignore the gossip this hell hole says," Michael said.
"Always do," I put in.
The bell rang and lunch was over. I tossed my trash in the bin.
"See you in gym, Helen," Luke said.
"Kay," I replied.
"I'll walk you to class," Calum said.
"You don't have to," I said. "I want to." He smiled.
Luke, Michael, and Ashton went one way, Calum and I went the other.
Calum intertwined our fingers together as we walked the hall to my art class.
"You seem happier than usual," I pointed out.
"Of course I'm happy," He replied.
I let out a small laugh.
Calum pretended to be oblivious to the stares we received, but he obviously noticed.
When we reached my art class I turned to Calum and smiled.
"I'll see you in gym," I said and turned away.
But before I could open the door to my class, Calum grabbed my wrist and pulled me to his chest.
"Are you trying to leave without giving me a kiss?" he asked.
"No, it's just, back in California, I got annoyed when couples hugged for five minutes before they went to their class. They are going to see each other in forty minutes, can't they wait? And I'm pretty sure people get annoyed when couple do that here, too, get me?" I asked.
"Yea, but I don't care if they get annoyed," Calum replied and leaned down to kiss my lips.
He pulled away, it was a quick kiss. Not like the ones we share privately.
"I'll see you gym, beautiful," He said and winked.
I smiled and rolled my eyes.
Art and gym class went by fast. I stood outside the girls locker room. We did a workout in class so I needed some fresh air. I took a sip from my cold water as I waited for Calum.
Travis Stone was walking towards me.
"Hey, Helen," he said and wiggled his eyebrows.
"Hi," I said blankly, trying to add some annoyance to my voice.
"So I heard what you did to Rebecca."
"Oh, yeah, that," I said.
"She's a bitch," He spat.
"So, I'm not here to talk about her, I'm here for something else," He said.
"What is it?" I asked.
"Would you like to go on a date?" He asked.
I tried not to laugh. Really? After he tried to hook up with my in the library. No.
Before I could say anything, I felt an arm around my waist.
"Hey, babe," Calum said and kissed my cheek.
"Hey, Cal," I said and smiled at him
"What were you two talking about?" Calum asked.
"Travis here, just asked me out on a date," I replied truthfully.
"Sorry, mate, she's taken," Calum said and steered me away from Travis.
He did that on purpose, I know it.
Once we were out of earshot, we both burst out laughing.
"Told you I didn't want you to slip from my fingers," Calum said.
"You won't lose me Cal, I'm here to stay," I replied and kissed his cheek.
