2. Chapter 2
After form with Mrs. Cassidy I had media. I never payed much attention before but now I'm pretty sure Luke's in my class. I head into they library and scan the multiple computers for him. I spot him alone in the back. I make my way over to a spot next to him. He looks at me as if confused. "Hi luke" i smile at him. He just looks back at his computer screen working on the task. I look at the whiteboard. We have to create a billboard advertising Mc Donald's. Well that's easy. I'll just put a burger and the logo. I sit tapping my fingers trying to think of a catchy slogan. After I give up I go back to reading my book. I look over at Luke's screen. He has made an amazing billboard. It's really cool and it makes me crave mc Donald's. "Hey Luke that's great" i say. He cracks a little smile. "Thanks" he says. Miss Faller announces to the class "now who wants to present their billboard to the class? Someone try and sell me some Kentucky Fried Chicken using their Billboard"
"Wrong restraunt" a kid in the back yells.
I look at Luke "hey you should show yours it's amazing" i grin. He frantically shakes his head. Calum offers and gives a USB to the teacher who then plugs it in and displays it. The whole class laughs. It's a picture of luke shoving a burger in his mouth, no clue how he got that. I looked back at Luke who stared at the picture.He got up and ran out of the classroom. I wouldn't blame him. Who wants to be in a room where people are laughing at you. I follow luke out. I see him enter the boys bathroom. I slowly open it and sneak in undetectably. I've never really heard someone cry before. The last stall is open but I know he is in there. "Luke?" I whisper. No reply but he does shut the stall and lock it. I walk up to the stall and lean against it. It creaks open and I fall back but regain balance. "Sorry i thought you were gone" Luke mumbled as he faced away. "No I stayed Luke, your my friend."
Friend. I don't remember the last time i heard that word. I look at him. "I- I don't know what to say"
"Well let's just go to our next class, we have science" he says. I walk with him. We accidently bump hands and I awkwardly move mine into the pockets of my hoodie.
It's been a few days, Thursday to be exact. Ashton and I have become really close. I haven't been as sad now that he's around. But happiness doesn't last forever.
