I was not in the mood for drama, but I let Niall into my house to talk about what he needed to talk about the new me. I wasn't excited as it may seem, but I was just annoyed by all this. I was about to get all of this makeover stuff done with, but I think that it's a little too early for that.
"So, what is the important thing that we need to talk about?" He looked at me like I should already know, and I do. I just don't think that will start the conversation off pretty nicely.
"Look. Darcy and Harry did really break up and it's all because of you. Harry really loved Darcy and Darcy obviously loved Harry." "No kidding." I rolled my eyes and sat back in my chair. I crossed my arms and just took in the glare that Niall was giving me right now.
"So, what's the big deal about Darcy and Harry." He looked at me like I was seriously an idiot. "Except the part that they've been together for four years and now broke up, I don't see the thing on why you have to come all the way over here and talk to me."
He rolled his eyes and I was starting to have a feeling like he wanted to just leave, and not tell me what he was going to tell me. "Just shut up and listen ok?"
I motioned him to continue and he said, "You need to be the one dating someone and making the cutest couple in the school and replacing Harry and Darcy, and don't worry Darcy was part of this--"
The door bell rang and I went to go get it. I opened it and it was Darcy. "Is Niall here yet?" "Yeah, he's--" She brushed past me and grabbed my arm on the way over to the living room.
She sat down next to Niall and said, "Did he tell you the plan." Niall rolled his eyes and said, "Sort of. You interrupted us." He was in her face and then turned away quickly with a red face.
She rolled her eyes and turned toward me and said, "So, you have to date one of your friends. Right now it seems that you and Eric will be the perfect one."
"Wow. That will be totally awkward. Do you know how long we've been friends? He's literally stuck in the friend zone right now." Darcy rubbed her hands on her temples and said, "Please do this! I want Harry back, and through this it will make him jealous. You two will definitely become the cutest couple. You already are starting to dominate over our status of looks. I don't know how, but it's spreading all over social media."
I looked at Niall and he was agreeing with everything she said. I had to stop this. "Look why don't you two date and make Harry jealous that way. I mean if he still has feeling for you he will be even more jealous is you two date and become the cutest couple."
Niall looked at Darcy completely dumbfounded by what I said. I could tell that he liked Darcy. Darcy just looked at me and said, "Fine. I guess that will work." "It's a deal then."
I looked at Niall and said, "I'm not a part of this though got it. I don't want to get caught up in any more drama. I'm tired of this ok?" "Promise."
The next day at school everyone was looking at me. They were wondering if I had changed back or not. They seem to be checking on that everyday now.
I looked around for Niall and Darcy to be playing their part, but they were no where in sight. That might be a good thing.
I went to my locker and saw that Eric was waiting for me there already. I went up to him and said, "So, how you doing?" He just looked at me disappointed. He still had his prep style on and didn't change back into his old self.
"Look I like me in this form ok. The old me is gone. So stop looking for her." He closed me door and looked at me with a deep stare and said nothing. This was getting awkward.
"Look if you're trying to make a--" He leaned in and cut me off with a kiss. He pulled back and stared again then walked off. It was seriously going to be really awkward in first period today no doubt.
When I looked around Harry's gang including Niall saw that. Niall just gave me the wtf look and I just shrugged my shoulders.
Everyone turned toward them and I just walked off. Niall followed me and pulled me into the janitor's closet.
"What happened to the plan." "Well, apparently no one told Eric that we were still friends and that he was in the friend zone with me."
Niall just put his hand through his hair in frustration. I wouldn't blame him.
"Look, you need to clear that up." "Why are you so obsessed with wanting to date Darcy. I mean if this really does work out then maybe you two won't have to date after all." He looked at me with hurt eyes.
"I told no one this, so don't you dare let this slip out of your mouth." I motioned him to continue and he said, "I have feelings for Darcy. Every since freshman year, and actually me and Darcy were suppose to be together, but Harry took her away from me."
"What are you saying, they've been together ever since freshman year." He let out a deep sigh and took out his phone. He showed me a picture of them with the homecoming sash and queen and king of homecoming from their freshman year.
He swiped to the next picture and it showed them two kissing. Then the next one was them smiling like they were having a good time together.
I looked up at him and he was just hurt. "Harry stole Darcy away from you?" He nodded.
I hugged him feeling so bad for what he had to go through. "I'm so sorry I didn't know." I he pushed me off lightly and not in a mean way and said, "Just please help me get Darcy back. I know this is suppose to get Darcy and Harry back together, but I want Darcy to get to remember the fun that we had together as a couple. Please."
I looked at him and said, "Deal."
The bell rang and that was the moment that I remembered that I needed to go to first class. We went out into the hallway and went our separate ways to our classes.
When I entered the classroom Eric was sitting in his normal seat. He looked at me and turned red. He stared back at his paper that was blank and just started to right something on it. Probably todays notes.
I sat in my normal seat and act like nothing happened between me and him, but I didn't talk to him.
This was going to be so awkward.
"Welcome back class! Please open your books to page 657 and we will start today's lesson. We skipped a couple lessons..." Something landed on my desk and I looked at it and it was a note. I looked around and it was Eric. He looked at his paper and glanced over at me then back at his paper again and smiled.
I read the note and it said, "Meet me in the janitor's closet during your lunch." I looked up and my teacher was just blabbering about today's lesson. I put the note in my pocket and took down the notes that I missed.
When lunch time came me and Darcy sat together. Everything turned to get really awkward. Darcy didn't say a word and she was on her phone throughout the whole time. I was trying to start up something, but it just ended in total silence at the end.
I hurried and ate my lunch and excused myself from Darcy. I went over by Harry's table and glared at Niall and guided his eyes to Darcy sitting alone. He nodded and this was the perfect time to start the jealousy project.
I put my lunch bag in my locker and headed over to the janitor's closet. Eric was already in there.
"Sorry that I'm late." "It's fine. I literally just got in here."
"So, why did you want to meet me in here?" He shuffled his feet uncomfortably and obviously wasn't really ready to say what he wanted to say to me.
"I know you already know this from my actions this morning that I have feelings for you, but I didn't want you take this the wrong way. I just couldn't hold it in any longer." He couldn't look me in the eyes. I don't blame him.
"Spencer. Please, say something." He finally lifted his head. He had worried eyes on and I knew that I would break his heart into pieces if I saw the wrong words.
I stepped up closer to him and cupped my hands around his face and kissed him. He responded pretty quickly. He put his arms around me and kissed me harder. He turned us around and lifted me so I could sit on the table behind me. I started putting my hands through his hair and then the bell rang. We both pulled back and looked at each other. I pecked him on the lips letting him know the answer without saying any words because I was out of breath.
I stepped out first then a few minutes later Eric stepped out. He met me at my locker and we just went back to our normal selves except when we left for our classes we gave each other a hug and then went our separate ways.
I knew the reason why I was smiling like a retard, but I just couldn't help it. For some reason I guess I did have feelings for Eric all this time.
Niall was in my next class. I needed to focus on that project with him and Darcy, not this love story.
I went into the classroom and Niall was sitting in the front and right next to where I usually sit. I sat in my normal seat and didn't pay attention to him.
He passed me a not and didn't look at me. I opened it and it said, "We flirted with each other and Harry came over when she giggled really loudly. I think it's working, but don't worry nothing bad happened."
I was happy for that, but what did Harry do when he went up to the table. Niall didn't turn to me so I wrote him a note back and said, "What did Harry do when he went to your table?"
He looked at me and I saw a black eye on his right eye. "You told me nothing bad happened." "Yeah, but he only hit me. He got a suspension for that." I rolled my eyes and sat lower in my chair.
I didn't get to find out anything else about what happened because the teacher turned around and started to teach the class.
I took out my binder to take some notes and put my mind off of the fact that I just ruined Niall and Harry's relationship. Great.
