When I got home I went straight up to my room. I flopped down onto my bed and stared up at the ceiling. I kept thinking about how Matt looked at me in lunch. I decided to forget about it and just start my homework. After about a half an hour of trying to figure out how to do my science fair project, I got a call from Me Lei.
S: Hey what's up
M: Nothing. Are you doing anything.
S: Well I was working on homework-
M: Good your free. I was wondering if you want to come over and hang. I have a couple of other people over but I think you know them all.
S: Yeah sure, I'll be over in 5 minutes.
M: K. See you then bye.
S: Asta la pasta
I hung up and grabbed my jacket. I went to the kitchen and wrote a note to my mom. Then I headed over to Me Lei's house. I crossed to street and started walking up the hill to Me Lei's house. All of a sudden Kenny appeared next to me.
"Hey Sarah." He said to me.
I looked at him confused. "How do you know my name?" I asked. He looked panicked for a second.
Finally he said. "I'm in your math class."
"No your not." I told him. We got to the door. Kenny was about to ring the doorbell when I stood in front of him. "What's the real reason you know my name? And we're not going on until you tell me."
"Fine." He sighed. "I know because one of my friends talks about you a lot." I stood there shocked as he reached around me to ring the doorbell. 5 seconds later Me Lei opens the door and Kenny walks in.
"Hey are you okay?" she asked.
"Yeah, I'm fine." I replied still shocked. I shook it off and walked in to find Abby sitting there watching the guys play a game on their phones together. I walk over to her and sit down. We start talking.
After a while I feel someone watching me so I look up. I look around the room and see Kenny looking at me. I send him a confused look. He just motions for me to come with him. I watch him walk out to the back door where the guys were running around. I follow Kenny outside and around to the side of the house.
"What?" I asked.
"Do you remember what I told you before?" He asked.
'Remember? Remember?! It's all I've been thinking about for the past 30 minutes!' I screamed in my head. "Yeah I do." I finally replied.
He looked behind me at the guys. I turned around too to see what he was looking at to find Matt looking at us. I didn't even realize he was here. I turn back around to see Kenny looking at me. "That friend was me." He said and kissed me. I stood there shocked until he pulled away. I looked at him paralyzed.
Finally I spoke. "Did that really just happen?" I asked. Kenny just laughed. "Yeah it did."
"Oh my god." I stammered, "I have to go."
"But wait." Kenny called as I ran away. As I ran by I saw Matt watching me.
I ran into the living room and grabbed my coat and phone. Abby got up and followed me to the door. "Sarah hold on." She called over to me. I stopped at the door and turned to wait for Abby. "What's wrong?" She asked.
"I don't want to talk about it."
"Okay. I'll come over later and we'll talk."
"Okay. See you then." I replied. I ran across the street to my house and threw open the door. My mom still wasn't home so I had time. I slammed the door shut behind me and went into the kitchen to get a snack. All of a sudden I heard the door bell ring. I went over to the door and opened it hoping to see Abby. But I didn't hope enough. It was Kenny.
"What do you want" I shot at him.
"I just wanted to talk."
"We have nothing to talk about." I replied coldly. Just as I was about to close the door on him he leaned forward to kiss me again. I stood there, shocked that he would think it was okay to do that. I tried to move away but he was to fast. He grabbed my waist and puled me in. His lips touched mine as I tried to pull away but he was to strong. All of a sudden he was pulled away from me. I collapsed in the doorway never wanting to experience that again. I look up to see who came to my rescue and saw Matt beating Kenny up. I got up and ran over to them just as Kenny punched Matt right in the jaw, sending him to the ground. I interfered and ran in between them.
"What are you doing?!" I yelled at them.
"I'm fighting for your love." Kenny smirked.
"Why would you be 'fighting for my love' if he doesn't even like me. He probably doesn't even know my name.
"Yeah I do." I turn around to find Matt standing there, still looking as good as ever may I add, looking up at me.
"What?" I asked my heart beating faster and faster.
"Your name's Sarah."
"How do you know that?"
"Your my lab partner in science." I looked down embarrassed that I could be so stupid.
"Oh yeah." I said disappointed.
"Well any way." Kenny interrupted, are we going to be left in peace so we can make out or am I going to have to bring you somewhere were we can do it."
I looked at him discusst. "I can't believe you. You disgust me. Just leave me alone." I said as I helped Matt up.
"Playing hard to get I see. Me likey." I decided to give up on him and just walk away.
"Hey" I felt someone grab my wrist. I turn around to yell at Kenny when I see Matt. "Are you okay?" He asked.
I looked at him speechless. "Yeah I'm fine." I manage to stammer. "How do you put up with him?"
He just shrugs. "He's always done that. I usually just ignore it. This is the first time I've interfered."
"The first time?" I ask. "Why didn't you help any other time?" I ask curious.
"Uhhhhhh. I don't know, maybe it's because-" He got cut off by his phone ringing. "Sorry I have to get this, it's my girlfriend."
"Okay. See you in school tomorrow." I manage trying not to cry. As I walk inside I take out my phone and tell Abby to come over.
When she gets here we sit in the living room and talk. All of a sudden I burst out crying. "What's wrong?" Abby asked.
"He has a girlfriend." I mange to choke out.
"What are you talking about Sarah" Abby asks
"Matt, has a girlfriend."
"How do you know this?"
"Because when I was talking to him, she called."
"Wait a second, you talked to him? And you didn't get nervous or embarrass yourself."
"So! That's an improvement. You should be proud of yourself! Now. Tell me what happened."
So I told her.
