It was after Christmas break & Harry & I have spent so much time together. It's a wonder no teachers or even the principal has even suspected us to be together yet. No one knows that we are together, except for Ashton. Jennifer knows I am dating someone but I haven't told her who. Lets face it, she has a big mouth & tells Luke everything.
"So are you ready to go back to school?" I heard Jennifer ask me. I just shrugged my shoulders. Honestly I hated school, but I now loved going to math class.
"I guess so, we only have like 5 more months now, and then were going to be graduating, can you believe that Jenn?" I was ecstatic to graduate because once I do, me and Harry can finally date without anyone saying a word to us. I know I may be 18 years old, but if anyone found out about our little fling, he could be terminated & I would feel terrible. "Have you talked to Luke today?" She just shook her head no. I didn't think anything of it.
"He's been ignoring me, but you know guys, assholes." She kind of laughed but I knew in my gut something was up. I would figure it out with a little investigation for her but I wouldn't let her know that I thought something was up. Luke is a cool guy and we have really bonded but he will not hurt my best friend. Plus I can get Ashton to find out. "Oh! Have you heard anything about that guy that hit you?"
"Uh, no. Apparently he know Harry though."
"Wait, that guy you lost your virginity to? You still talk to him?" Ugh, so many questions.
"Yeah, we hangout now. He's came to a few parties, but of course I go to all my brothers' friends parties, you're always with Luke at the lame high school parties with the football team." I love that I don't deal with all the lame high school guys. I have always hungout with my brother and his friends. Except Louis, he is kind of still in high school because all he does is smoke pot and dodge class. They told him if he didn't graduate this year they was just going to say he passed because they are tired of dealing with him.
"You mean Louis' parties?" I nodded. "Damn pothead." She has never really liked him, because she tried to get with him and he rejected her. She can't take rejection. "Come on, Rose! We're going to be late!"
My phone buzzed when we got into her car, it was Harry.
'We have a problem. Meet me before class. -H.' That was weird.
'Okay babe, why?'
"Just do it, I'll explain. -H.' I just quit texting him then. Obviously it was important. Maybe I failed the last test or something. All he would have to do it tutor me again.
"Rose!" I heard my name as I was getting out of the car. I looked up to see Ashton running over to me. I smiled at him and gave him a hug.
"Hey what's up?" I asked him, he looked kind of serious.
"Rose, Mr. Payne is looking for you." Our principal is looking for me, oh well maybe it's something to do with my grades. "It's serious. He's mad."
"Wait, what? Mad?" I asked and he nodded. "Okay, well I guess I better dodge him real fast because Harry wants to see me before class." I gave him another hug and told him I would tell him everything in math. He just nodded and walked in with Jennifer. I hope it's nothing to bad and I hope I find Harry before Mr. Payne finds me.
"Pst, Rose." Someone whispered, I looked around found no one, I felt someone grab my wrist and drag me into a class room and locked the door. I looked around and seen a tall figured. I switched the lights on and seen Harry. I ran to give him a hug but he just pushed me off.
"So, Mr. Payne wants to see me, I guess I better go find him." I was pissed, why did he push me away.
"No, well you see..." He paused, "Mr. Payne gave me a ring this morning, saying a student told him that I was sleeping with one of my students." My eyes went wide and my mouth dropped open. "He didn't give me a name but he said that he knows which student it is and that if the student agrees to what was told to him that I would be fired immediately."
"Well, uhm... What do I do?"
"If he asks you, you have to deny it. I can't lose this job, Rose. That would make me an offender and I could end up in jail an-"
I cut him off, "Harry, I'm 18. There is nothing they can do about it."
"I can still get fired, please deny it." He was practically begging and I wouldn't tell anyone anyway. The only person I told was Ashton and he wouldn't tell anyone.
"Harry, I would never tell anyone. The only person I told was Ashton and you know that." I thought long and hard about who it could have been. "Wait one damn minute." He looked up at me confused. "You told me you weren't going to tutor Delilah, right?" He nodded. "What exactly did you say to her?"
"Uh, that I couldn't tutor her because I had a busy schedule and that I had a hot girlfriend at home that would not like that." Then he started thinking, "but then she brought up how I tutored you." How the fuck did she know that?
"How the fuck did she know about that? Did you tell her?" I was angry. I hated that bitch.
"No! I don't tell people who I tutor."
"Well I am going to see Mr. Payne and pay a little visit to Delilah." He laughed at me because he thinks its quite hilarious when I am angry. I shot him a glare and headed right towards the door. I made my way to Mr. Payne's office but I could hear he was talking with someone, so I stopped and listened for a minute.
"So Delilah, you know that he is sleeping with a student?"
"Yes sir." I heard her say.
"Who is this student?" Please don't say my name, please don't say my name. "Katelynn Mavericks." Fuck.
"Okay, that's all I need to know. I sent Ashton looking for her. I just needed to know for sure, thank you for calling me over the break and talking to me this morning. You are dismissed to go to class." Right when he said that the bell rand and she came running out. I glared at her and she smirked at me. Fucking Bitch. I knocked on his door.
"Hey Mr. Payne, Ashton said you wanted to see me." I tried to stay calm but he was so intimidating. Hot, but intimidating.
"Ah yes, Katelynn,"
"Please call me Rose. I've been here for four years just please call me Rose!"
"Okay, Rose. So I have heard a rumor or two. From a student." I nodded. "Saying that you are or were sleeping with the math teacher, Mr. Styles." He gave me a stern look. I wanted to go hide.
"Sir, did you know that rumors aren't true?" I asked him, he shook his head yes then tried to say something but I put my hand up. I can be a bitch when I wanted to. "Sir, I could get you into so much trouble for helping spread a rumor about a student that isn't even true and you can be fired in a heartbeat. So miss Delilah can go suck a dick." I stood up and his eyes were wide.
"How did you know she told me?"
"Because I was outside the door when you were questioning her. You can go ahead and give me after school detention because I'm beating her ass when I walk outta this office. And you can't stop me unless you catch me doing it, so peace." I stood up and walked out. I didn't dare look behind me because I knew he would be pissed.
I was running through the hall looking for her, but I couldn't find her. I looked in all the classrooms and still couldn't find her, so I decided to just go to class and tell Ashton what just happened. I walked into math class and everyone was staring at me. Like big deal I'm late fuckers. I went and sat by Ashton while Harry continued to teach. I wrote Ashton a note about what all Mr. Payne said to me and what all I said to him. I looked behind me and there she was. Delilah. I didn't even give a crap right now.
"Hey Delilah, what's up with you spreading false rumors and me and a teacher?!" I was full blown yelling already. Yes, I know these rumors are true but I'm not letting Harry lose his job. When he heard me yell at her, he turned around.
"What?" She asked.
"You heard me bitch, now tell me why are you being a little bitch. If you have a problem, tell me."
"Oh please, go smoke your pot and leave me alone." She flipped her hair and went to talking with her friends. I could see Harry starting to walk over to me, but I was already out of my seat going over to her.
"Excuse me?" I asked.
"You heard me." I punched her square in the nose and she was knocked out. I looked at Harry who was beside me with wide eyes, like the rest of the class and walked out. I turned and looked at him.
"I'm going to Mr. Payne because I already told him I was beating her ass. Peace out." Ashton had a smirk on his face. Harry couldn't believe what I done but even if I sat back down he would have had me sent there anyway because he is a teacher and I am his student.
"Mr. Payne, go ahead and write me my detention slip. I told you I was beating her ass & that is what I done." I said, walking into his office. He handed me the slip he had already written up for me.
"I already wrote it. I knew you would be back, but miss Mavericks, why did you do that?" He got up and shut his door. He may be intimidating but he thinks of his students first. I'm here weekly anyway, but he has never seen me act out like this. I'm usually here for skipping class or smoking pot. He knows how rough this last year has been for me and he tries to put himself in my shoes.
"Well sir, she is a bitch and she has stolen all my boyfriends. Yeah I know, petty right? I know I shouldn't hold grudges but I swear to you if you turn her down she will spread any rumor. I know you're young, so if she tries anything on you, you better be careful because once you turn her down, she will make your life a living hell. Plus I don't think you want any STD's." He smiled, he actually smiled at me. Usually he just gives me those talks about how smart I could be but I'm ruining my life smoking, blah blah blah. "Well I better get to Mr. Styles' class. I missed a lot of stuff." He just nodded and let me go.
School went by pretty fast, I couldn't believe how my morning went but I am just glad that I shut that bitch up. I was in English class now, my last class of the day then I had to spend 2 hours after school with Harry, not that I was complaining. Plus he still has to help me out with math. I was so caught up in my thoughts that I didn't know that the bell had rung. I got up, went to my locker and headed down to the detention room.
"Don't talk to me." What the hell was his problem.
"Uh, did I do something?" I asked him. I could see the anger in his eyes. He looked as if he hated me.
"Rose, I told you tell Mr. Payne that nothing was going on, not make a scene in my class with Delilah. Look, I know you do things that I don't like, but fighting? Really?"
"Harry, I'm sorry but she pissed me off."
"Okay, so if I piss you off are you going to hit me too?" I just looked at him. "You know what? Get you math out and do some of it. I'll be at my desk. Don't bother me unless you need help and then at 5, just go home. We are done." Those words hurt.
"I'm out, peace fucker. I should have told him the truth."
With that I walked out. Me and Harry broke up all because of Delilah. Really, she had to come between us. Maybe he is into her. But I just called up Ashton and had him meet me in our spot. I knew Harry would be pissed, I knew I would get in trouble tomorrow morning. I would probably be moved to in school detention but I don't even care. I need to get high with my best friend and forget about Harry dick Styles.
