15. Fire Starter (Demi Lovato)
Monday. No way. I look at the board. My French’s teacher is talking something but I’m not paying attention. I woke up feeling tired. If I could I would be on my bed. But here I am. I look around, Mandy is drawing in her notebook. Another girl is sending text. The boy sitting in front of me is sleeping. At least I'm not the only one not paying attention.
The bell rings. Thank God.
We walk in silence to the refectory. Mandy and I are really close, the silence between us is not weird.
"So what's the menu today?" Caren asks while she gets in the line with us
"I am sure the chief made something really special" Mandy says laughing
We pick our food and go to a table
Some minutes after Sophie and some friends of her sat in our table
"I've seem your friend this weekend” Sophie says to me
Oh no. Not again. Not today.
"Harry was in a party we went on Friday." Sophie continues
"What party?" one of her friends asks
"Taylor's. It was huge. The place was on fire! Your friend was soooo drunk. But he was having fun. He was with one of my friends"
"You know what? You don't need to tell me what Harry did, who Harry had fucked...I don't care. And I am done of you telling me every move of Harry"
I breath. I felt better. This girl is annoying me so much!
"Oh someone is jealous" Sophie teases me
This girl need to stop it. She is making me angry.
"I am not jealous"
"Of course you are. You want Harry. That's why you don't want to know how many girls he had fucked. Because you want to be one of them. And can handle the fact that your boy is with others girls"
That's it. Without thinking I’m getting up ready to punch this girl. A hand hold my arms, stopping me. It is Mandy. Sophie gets up scared. All of her friends got up too and walk to another table.
"Why are you such in a bad mood?" Harry asks
"The haven't started well" I say
"I am just stress. I have a competition on Sunday"
He looks at me waiting for me to tell what had really happened.
"Okay...I woke up feeling already tired and I...almost had a fight with a 'friend'"
"A fight?! You?! Why have I missed this?"
"Stop it Harry! I said it was almost. Mandy stopped me from doing anything"
"Why you almost had a fight?"
I breath. I can lie. I can deny. I’m so tired to make an excuse that I decided to tell the truth
"Because of you"
"Yes, every Monday she comes in the launch time saying she saw in a party and you were with some girls...I just don't want to know about what you do. I never asked her to tell me that. When I told her to stop talking about you she said I was jealous! This is pathetic! I am not jealous, I am just not interested in your sexual life!"
He laughs "You are really angry at her!"
"It's not funny!" I say angrily "And it's your fault!"
"Breath Katy. You are worried about many things. You don't need to worry about another. So just forget it. I know you are not jealous and you know it too. That's what metters"
He is right. I have a lot to worry about
He give me a hug. I don't push him away.
"I am surprised" I say
"You. I thought you were going to tease about me being jealous. You didn't act like an idiot"
"I would never be an idiot with you. You are not those girls"
