Lukes pov ~
"Luke. You were about to...." Calum begins to protest, but I quickly cut him off.
"It wasn't my fault! He walked in at the wrong time."
"But luke, HE TOLD YOU HE LIKED HER AND HE WAS GOING TO ASK HER OUT AFTER PRACTICE YOU DICK"
I was stunned by what Calum just revealed. Infront of Sophie. The realisation is swept across his face. You could tell he said it out of anger.
Sophie is lost for words, I can see that her eyes are starting to fill with salt water. Her fists are curled up into balls, her chest is pumping faster and faster.
With one last look of shame, she pushes past me, darting for the car.
"SOPHIE, NO, DONT GO. PLEASE STAY"
My words obviously meant nothing. She zipped away.
Sophie's Pov ~
I don't know what to do. I like Ash, a lot. I just never thought he liked me back. Boys are so confusing.
I drive home as fast as I can. I run inside, slamming the door behind me. My mum is in the kitchen making cakes for the charity brunch tomorrow.
"Hey honey, how was your-"
"Great, I'm going to sleep, night"
And that was it. I marched straight up to my room, changed into my oversized nirvana shirt and climbed into the safety of my bed.
Tomorrow is a new day. Things will be different, at least, that's what I'm telling myself. My mums charity banquet is tomorrow. That'll take my mind off things.
I wake the up the next morning to a phone call - my boss is calling.
"Er hi George" I manage to say whilst still half asleep
"Sophie! Hey, listen, I need you to come in to work this morning"
NO. THIS WAS THE SAME TIME AS ASH'S SHIFT. IM NOT READY TO FACE HIM
"Er, I, I'm not feeling too well"
"Please Sophie, I'll double your pay. It's an emergency"
Double pay.....I'm sold.
"Okay, I'll be there in 10"
He hung up, leaving me to dwell on my recent decision. I can only use one word.
