Looking from afar

Sarah has always been a nobody. She does well in school and she has a bunch of friends. Sarah is happy about her life, but nobody knows her in school. There is only one person Sarah wished would notice her. And that was Matt. Will Sarah always be watching from far away or will she find the courage to make something happen?


13. School

Matt's POV

I was walking to English when I saw Sarah walking in. I walked over to her. "Hey Sarah!" I called over to her so she could wait for me. She stopped over by her locker. "Hey." I said walking up to her.

"What's up." She asked

"Can't I just talk to you without being questioned?" I asked. She just stared at me. "Is everything okay?" I asked concerned.

"Yeah." She replied.

"So Yash called me yesterday. He said you called Isabella to come over. He said you sounded really upset."

"I'm sorry for making you leave, I just had to deal with something and I needed to talk to someone."

"You could of talked to me." I said concerned.

"I had to talk to a friend." She started.

"What. Am I not your friend." I said offended.

She sighed. "I didn't mean it like that."

"No. I know exactly what you meant." I shot.

"Matt." She looked at me with hurt in her eyes. "I'm sorry." And I could tell she was, I just didn't want to forgive her yet. I shot her a look filled with hate and walked away.

Sarah's POV

Maybe it was better if he didn't talk to me. That way none of us will get hurt. I thought as I walked to homeroom.

When I got there, I walked over to sit next to Isabella. "So where are you going to take me?" I heard her ask.

"It's a surprise." Yash told her.

She giggled and they kissed. I pretended to gag. "Do you mind?" Isabella joked.

"I do mind. I really don't want to lose my breakfast." I joked.

"Well then just look away." Yash said as he gave Isabella a peck on the cheek. We all burst out laughing.

I slowly stopped laughing as I saw Matt looking at us. I send him a look that says 'I'm really sorry' but he just looked away. I feel like crying. I can't stand to be in the same room as the guy I've liked since 6th grade when he hates me. Isabella must have noticed my change in mood because she gave me a hug. "What happened?" She said concerned.

I sighed "I think Matt hates me now." I said looking at the back of his head.

"Why would you think that?"

"I said something that made him think that I wasn't his friend anymore and then he stopped talking to me." I sighed.

"Maybe it's better that way. Then Zayn can't hurt him. It's to bad I can't say the same for me."

"Hey. It's going to be okay." She whispered.

Suddenly I got a text. I looked down to see what it said. I don't like seeing you upset. I'll help you get over Matt. I'll see you in your room today after school. Don't miss it. ~Zayn

I looked around the room to see if I could find him. There was no sign of him. Why did this have to happen to me. Why not someone else.

Derek's POV

I walked into lunch to see Sarah walking in through the other door. I walked over.

"Hey Sarah. What's up." I said noticing she looked depressed.

She looked up surprised. "Oh hey. Nothing much." She said.

"Okay. So I was wondering if you would like to go to the movies with me tonight?" I really hoped she said yes.

"Sure. What time." She said

"I'll pick you up at 5." I told her taking out a pen and writing my number on her hand. "Text me your address." I said walking away. I sat down at my table to see Matt glaring at me. "What?" I asked confused.

"Nothing." He said mysteriously. "So what did she say?"

"She said yes." I said happily.

"I have to go do something. I'll be right back." Matt said getting up clearly annoyed.

Sarah's POV

I sat down at my table. Everyone was staring at me. "What?" I asked confused.

"What were you talking about with Derek?" Trisha asked excitedly.

"He asked me if I wanted to go to the movies with him tonight." I told them.

"What did you say?" Abby asked obviously wondering if I still liked Matt.

"I said yes."

"Why?" Isabella asked.

"Am not allowed to go places?" I snapped.

"Whatever." She sighed.

"Sorry." I apologized. 

"It's okay." She said. We sat in silence for a couple of minutes.

"So Sarah, how did the science project go?" Ashley asked wiggling her eyebrows.

I sighed. "I don't really want to talk about it."

"Okay." She said confused.

We sat in silence again. Suddenly Yash came up from behind Isabella and gave her a hug. She jumped and let out a shriek and we all started laughing. "Hey." She said turning around to face him.

"So are we still on for this afternoon?" He asked.


"K. I'll see you later." He said giving her a kiss.

Once he left she turned around her face bright red. "Oooooooooooooooooooooo" Trisha mocked.

"When did that start to happen?" Ashley asked.

I sat there laughing. "You knew!" Abby asked surprised.

I continued laughing as Isabella explained what happened. Suddenly I got a text. Glad to see you happy. Re we still on for today? ~Zayn. I didn't answer, just looked around the room scared to see him.

I hadn't even realized how long I was looking around until I heard my name. "Sarah!" Trisha yelled in my ear.

"What!" I yelled back startled.

"who are you looking for?" She asked.

"No one." I sighed.

"Are you sure you've been looking around the cafeteria for the past 5 minutes." She said.

"I'm sure." I said looking over at Isabella. She had a worried look on her face.

"I'm going to go to the bathroom. Sarah do you want to come with me?" She asked.

"Sure." I said getting up. "We'll be right back."

When we got to the bathroom Isabella check to make sure it was empty and then closed the door. "What's wrong?" She blurted.

"What makes you think that something's wrong." I asked

"Well lets see. You weren't paying attention, you looked upset and you weren't socializing." She listed. "Was it Zayn?"

"Yes." I sighed. "He's going to meet me in my room today after school."

"Do you want me to be there?" She asked concerned.

"No I think I'll be okay." I said unsure if I could handle it. 

"Okay. Lets go back." She said as we walked out.

Soon the bell rang and I went to gym. I walked over to the bleachers and sat down. A minute later MeLei came and sat down. Soon Derek came over. "Hey."

"Hey Derek." I said to him.

"Are you okay. You look pretty depressed." He asked using the same concerned voice that Matt used. 

"Why is everybody keep asking me that?!" I yelled causing everybody to turn to look at me. I got up and ran into the locker room passing Matt on the way. Thankfully nobody was in there. I sat down on the floor next to my locker and cried. I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't handle Matt hating me and Zayn coming into my life and ruining everything. I heard the door open and close.

"Sarah?" I heard Isabella call.

Suddenly she sat next to me. "Are you okay?" She asked.

"I just can't handle it anymore. Zayn is ruining my life! Now because of him Matt hates me." I sobbed

She gave me a hug. "You should go home. I'll stop by to see how you're doing later."

"Don't you have that date with Yash tonight?" I asked calming down.

"Yeah but I can always stop by before."

"I don't want you to be late to your date." I said. "I'll be fine. Plus I have that date with Derek tonight."

"I'll walk you down to the nurse." She offered.

"But I don't need to go to the nurse." I said.

"Well you do need to go home. Just tell her your leg hurts." She said standing up.

I sighed and stood up. I followed Isabella out and over to the teacher. We walked to the nurse's office in silence. Isabella waited with me until my mom came. "Are you sure you don't want me to stop by before my date." She asked.

"Yes I'm sure. I'll be fine." I reassured her.

When I got home I laid down on my bed. I was so tired, and pretty soon I fell asleep. I woke up with a jolt when I felt someone sit next to me. I stared in shock when I realized that it was Zayn.
