After watching a whole marathon of family guy with Jade, I move over closer to her and put my arm around her. She doesn't pull away but she buries her face into my chest.
I look at the time. It's only been an hour but it seems like ages. (in a good way). "Jade I think I should go." I sigh. She pulls herself off. "Yeah, maybe you should." She smiles at me.
I walk to the door and open it. She waves. "See you round then?" She says. I nod, grinning and she shuts the door. I walk round the corner into my street and go home.
"Mikey, is that you? Where have you been?" My mum calls. I breath in, thinking of something. "I went round to Luke's for band practice." I shout back and then run upstairs to my room. All I can think about is Jade and the kiss. It was amazing, it felt so right.
I hope she likes me just as much as I like her. She probably doesn't after all that bullying, but she seemed okay. I think right right now were in the 'just friends' zone. Maybe we could be more than that, but she probably won't want that right now.
My phone rings and I look to see who it is. Luke. I answer.
"Dude where've you been for ages?" He yells. I worry, thinking of what to say.
"I haven't been feeling too good, that's all. Chill out."
"Okay, okay. Have you seen Jade lately? She's not talking to Calum as much. This might not be working."
"What am I meant to say to that?" I snap and hang up. He's gonna bug me now until I tell him what's up. Great.
I start feel tired so I lie on my bed and go to sleep.
I get ready for school and run downstairs and out the door, forgetting breakfast. I meet up with Cal and Luke and we start walking to school.
I don't talk as all I can think about is Jade. We kissed. And I left her. I left her all alone. Why didn't I just stay with her? Her mum just freaking died and she has no idea where her dad is, she could of used some better company.
When we get to school, we meet Ash at his locker. "Calum, talk to Jade more today. Yesterday you failed at it." He laughs. I want to punch him, but I restrain myself.
Cal walks off to go and talk to Jade and I head off to class. I hope she goes on with the plan.
Cal walks over to me and I suddenly remember Michael's plan. I fake smile. He's so cute though, it's gonna be hard. "Hi Jade. Wanna go to class together?" He asks. I nod and we walk off.
(End of the day)
I walk out of school with Abbie, talking about random things. Then she says she has to go and wanders off. I walk down the road.
I start thinking of Michael. The kiss. The crush he has on me. I like him back, but we can't be anything as long as his 'friends' are around. I sigh, walk up to my door and stroll in.
I run my fingers through my hair and go upstairs. I put green day on and lie down. But just as I lie down I hear the door creak open...
I sneak downstairs cautiously. I see it's my dad. He looks drunk out of his mind. I walk back up stairs as quiet as I can and walk in to my bedroom. I turn my music off and listen. "Where the fuck are they?" He keeps shouting to himself.
I'm not going down there. But I have an urge to go down their and smash his head in with a baseball bat after what he did to mum.
I then hear footsteps getting louder and louder until they're right outside my door. I hold my breath as he opens up the door...
