2. Chapter 2
I was at home doing home work, but couldn't really focus. First day at school and already fell in love with a girl. Great. Her name was Skarlette Malik. She's in all my classes and her locker's right next to mine! She was on my mind all day since I bumped into her outside. I try acting cold to her and it hurts me real bad, but I can't love her. She's too perfect and I'm not good for her. Plus I would be putting her in danger. I moved here from Ireland so I could hide a while. No, I'm not in trouble with the police or anything like that. I had to get away cause someone wants my blood and something that I have that he doesn't. A map. Not just any map. A map of all the vulnerable banks that wouldn't be able to stop the robbery. I used to be apart of his gang, but broke apart when I realized what he did.
The next morning
I woke up late and quickly took a shower and got dressed. I quickly drove to school. I ran to first period class and saw Skarlette smirking at me. I wanted to kiss her sooo badly. No Niall get a hold of your self! You can't love her! You can't be with her! You can't put her in danger! Just sit down and focus on school. I stole glances at her the whole period. At one point I could've sworn I saw her shiver. Is she cold or is she afraid of me? I decided to tap her on the shoulder and ask her. She looked at me and looked angry, but I saw a hint of fear in her eyes. "What?" She snapped. It shocked and hurt me at the same time, but I kinda deserved it for being a jerk. If only she knew I was doing it to protect her.
"Umm..." I couldn't think of my words to say. "Are you cold? You're shivering."
"Yea, why do you care?" I couldn't speak. I took off my jacket and put it around her. She gradually took it and turned to the board. "Thank you" She said under her breath and I gave her a small smile. She returned it with a grin. "Why are you staring at me?" I shook my head. My face bright red.
"Uhh I'm sorry. I didn't know." I looked down at my paper and realized I drew a picture of her. Shit I really do love her and now I'm nice to her. Get it together Horan. You can protect her. You're strong. I gave her the paper and she looked up at me and smiled. "Do you like it?" I felt the heat rising in my cheeks.
"Thanks. I love it."
"I love you..." I hoped she hadn't heard and luckily she didn't. The bell rang dismissing us and Skarlette tugged my arm.
"Why were you acting so cold to me the first day?" Great. I have to tell her. It's the right thing. I just hope she doesn't freak out......
