After he introduced himself to me, we had a nice little conversation while walking to my house.
About 30 minutes later, we arrived at my house. "Your house is really nice." Michael said as he stared at it in awe of how big it was.
"Thanks" I replied. As I was unlocking the door, I heard footsteps inside. I opened the door really fast, and Ashton ran and jumped on the couch.
"You scared the crap out of me!" I said, my heart racing.
"You should close your bedroom window, someone could come and steal your things" Ashton said trying to hold in his laugh.
"Shut up Ashton!" I yelled, as he was looking behind me. I was wondering what he was looking at, but then I remembered that Michael was with me.
"Oh, Ashton, you know Michael. He is in our biology class." "Hey" Ashton said. "Hi" Michael replied.
After we all talked for a while, I got up to make dinner. I noticed Ashton was staring at my Xbox. Then all of a sudden he shouted "YOU BOUGHT FIFA 15?!"
"Yeah, I got it when it came out"
"Can me and Michael play? Pleeeease" Ashton begged. "Ugh, fine as long as you don't mess up my Xbox."
After I finished cooking, I set the pizza on the table. "Ashton. Michael. I made pizza!" I called them to come eat.
They were walking to the table arguing about each other cheating in the game. "I demand a rematch!" Ashton said, as he sat down.
"Don't be a sore loser" Michael said. "I'm not a sore loser, you cheated!" Ashton argued.
"How about after we finish eating, we all play?" I said wanting them to stop fighting. They just nodded, too busy eating their pizza.
*15 minutes later*
We were walking back to the living room when someone knocked on the door. "I'll get it!" Ashton said.
He opened the door and said "Luke?! What are you doing here?"
When he said that my eyes got wide and I looked at Luke shocked. Michael got up and went to go talk to Luke.
"Do you want to start the game without him?" Ashton asked me. "Should we?" I asked as Michael came back, Luke following him.
"Can Luke pay FIFA with us?" Michael asked as he picked up a controller.
"I guess..." I said reluctantly.
"How about two teams: me and Amanda, and Michael and Luke?" Ashton suggested.
"Sure, but just to let you know, we are gonna win" Michael said giving Luke a high five.
"In your dreams" Ashton said, looking at me with a wide smile spread across his face.
We are probably gonna lose because, even though I have this game, I don't know how to play it.
After we picked our teams, we started the game. "What are you doing?! He's not on our team!!" Ashton yelled at me. "Sorry Ash, but I seriously don't know what I'm doing, I'm just pressing random buttons!" I yelled back, frustrated.
"We're losing!!!" Ashton said, obviously upset. After he said that I threw my controller down, everyone's eyes on me.
"It's just a f*cking game! Why do you care if we lose?! I just wanted to spend time with you Ashton, but I guess that doesn't matter to you!" I yelled, storming off to my room.
As she yelled at me, I felt horrible. I didn't know she felt that way about me.
"I guess it's that time of the month." Michael said laughing. I just looked at him. "What is wrong with me?" I said in a half whisper, but I guess Luke and Michael heard me. Michael immediately stopped laughing, and Luke stood up.
"I'm gonna go talk to her." Luke said walking upstairs and into her room.
When I got to the top of the stairs, I went to Amanda's room and knocked on the door. "Can I come in?" I said, still knocking. "Go away" she said, and I could tell that she had been crying.
Ignoring what she said, I opened the door slowly and walked in. She was sitting on her bed with her head in her hands. I went and sat next to her, and hugged her.
"Nobody cares about me, why do I even try?" She said as she lay her head on my shoulder. "What are you talking about?" I asked confused at what she was saying.
"When I first met Ashton, I liked him right away. But he never noticed, so I tried everything to get him to like me back, and obviously nothing worked, he only likes me as a friend." She said, her eyes starting to water.
"It's going to be okay." I said as I wiped her tears.
I looked up at Luke as he ran his thumbs across my cheeks. "Can you tell Ashton and Michael to leave?" I asked. "Sure, I'll be right back." He said as he raced down the stairs.
When he left I was thinking of how weird it was that we are friends, because he was the one that used to beat me up. With those thoughts in my head, I lay down in my bed.
Luke came back up and told me that both Ashton and Michael had left. "Do you want me to go also?" He asked. "Can you stay with me?" I asked, my face getting red.
"Of course." Luke said, kicking off his shoes as he lay down next to me. I got closer to him, hoping he wouldn't mind. Surprisingly, he pulled me close to him, and wrapped his arms around my waist.
I fell asleep instantly, the events of today still playing back in my mind. I don't know how tomorrow will be, but I'm glad at least one person cares about me. Even though we are just friends, and nothing more...........yet.
