I slowly open my eyes and groan at the annoying sound of my alarm.
I smack it and it shuts off. I sit up and wince at the movement on my stomach.
After the game Calum and me played, which was around 10 rounds of Mario Carts, he left because his mum called and told him to well, come home.
We didn't talk or even mention the kiss thank god. I still didn't say anything but I don't think he cared.
The thing that caught me off guard was that his face was red 99% of the time. The other 1% it was pink instead....
I haven't heard from Luke still....
I grab some clothes from my dresser and slowly make my way to my bathroom.
I didn't technically have a shower yesterday so.....
I take the bandages off and step into the hot water. I hiss as the water comes in contact with the cuts and jump away from the water.
Shit I always forget that it hurts if the water touches it. Well for me anyway.
I wash up and dry off putting my clothes on. I shake my hair out and leave it.
I head out and grab my bag from where I tossed it Saturday.
I make my way down stairs.
I slip on my shoes, kiss my mum on the cheek before she can even say a word.
I walk out, putting my head phones in as I wait for the bus.
I lean against a tree a as car pulls up next to me. I back away quickly.
The drivers door opens and Calum steps out. He throws me a smile and I give him a confused look.
He leans against the top of the car. "Wanna ride?"
I look around and slowly walk over to the black car.
I get in the passenger seat and Calum's grin gets bigger as he gets in. He drives away and towards the school.
"Your probably wondering why I wanted to give you a ride, I wanted to for a while but I didn't know you that well so I didn't." He says and I give him an amused expression. His eyes go wide and his face flushes bright red. "No I -I didn't mean it like that- shit, sorry. Fuck not-not that I wouldn't give you a ride like that,- wait no well fuck. I'm just gonna be quiet."
Well then. I feel my face heat up and he coughs.
The rest of the ride- car ride- is awkwardly quiet. Like I mean really awkward.
When we finally pull up to the school, I get out as fast as I can and run into the building so I'm not anywhere near Calum and people get the idea that were friends.
I don't know if we are or not, but I've got a feeling that to Calum were best friends.....
I make it to my locker and unlock it in one try. Well so at least two good things have happened to me. One, I didn't have to take the bus, two I got my locker open in just one try.
I look around and see no sign of Michael. That's also good.
I grab out my books and I feel someone tap my shoulder. I jump five feet and wipe around with wide eyes.
"You okay?" Calum asks. I look around with scared eyes. Looking for Michael.
"Ashton who are you looking for- oh. Michael." Calum says eyes softening.
I look at the ground and I hear people laughing and my eyes go wide in fear and Calum looks at me with giant eyes.
I can already see the guilt swim in his eyes and I run down the hall as fast as I can towards my first class.
Mrs. Clay looks up surprised as I pant and try to catch my breath and wince in the pain in my stomach.
"Ashton you okay?" She asks and I give her a thumbs up as I slowly make my way to my desk.
I sit down and take a sharp breath as Mrs. Clay looks at me concerned.
The bell rings and people start filling the classroom up.
Michael and Calum come laughing in with Tony. I notice that Chris is gone..... He hasn't been here for a while.
They look over at me and notice the teachers gone. Well fuck.
Michael smirks and makes his way over with Tony and Calum.
I keep my head down and I tense when I feel someone sit beside me.
"Hey Ashton." Michael says throwing his arm on the back of my chair.
When I don't say anything he sighs annoyed. "Why don't you talk anymore? Not that it would so you any good but you use to talk up a storm, I would have to tell you to shut the fuck up."
He laughs but it's got a bitter sound to it. "Now you don't make a fucking peep. But just cause your quiet doesn't mean you don't bother me. Just you being here and alive bugs the shit out of me." He sneers and I flinch.
My mind flashes back to the dream.
All of a sudden he pulls back and gives me a sad smile before walking away. He turns around and shouts to me, "No matter what Ash, I'll always be with you even if I am being a dick and ruining your life. Your still my best friend."
Just as quickly it's gone.
"Hey I'm talking to you asshole." I feel someone grab my wrist and I flinch and bite my lip to keep from crying and pulling away.
If only the Michael in my dream was this Michael right now.....
He pulls my wrist so I'm closer to him and I look at him with wide eyes full of fear.
Hazel eyes meet his green ones. I search his eyes looking for any trace of the person I once called my best friend.
He punches me so I fall off my chair and the class laughs.
Where's Mrs. Clay?
I wince as I sit up and he laughs.
I look at Calum who's looking away. Great. Calum's just not gonna do anything.
I get up off the ground and Michael laughs while him and Tony wall back to there seats.
I look at Calum, begging him with my eyes but he just lightly shakes his head and my expression goes cold.
He notices because he looks frantic and nervous. I look away from him and take my seat, ignoring the pain as much as I can.
He gives me one last look, puts on a fake forced smile and goes back to his 'friends'.
Jus then the teacher comes in and starts teaching us about ShakeSpear.
"So who here knows about what happened between Romeo and Juliet- oh. Um hello." Someone knocks on the door but I keep my nose buried in the book Aragon.
"What can I do for you?" She asks.
"I'm new." I freeze. No....
