16. Heart Attack (Demi Lovato)
I’m walking to school after my practice. Martha is really exciting. I’m doing well in the training. I have a feel days .The competition is on Sunday.
"Katy!" I heard someone calling. It is Caren
"I just want to say I don't agree with Sophie. I know you. And I know you are not a Harry girl. Anyway, I am probably not going to launch with you. I can't let her"
"It's alright Caren"
"Really? You are the best friend ever!" she says hugging me "I promise I am going to launch with you tomorrow"
I smile and she walks away
Mandy and I are walking in the corridor. We have five minutes until the class begins. Sophie pass by us without saying a word. Good.
Mandy looks at me. She is thinking about something.
"What?" I ask "Don't say 'it's nothing' I know that look. Tell me"
She says nothing
"It's about Sophie, isn't ?" I ask "You think she is right?!"
"It's not like that. I think she is kind of right"
"Kind of right?!"
"Look at you, Katy. You said you'd stay away from Harry and now you two are friends! You are friend of the guy that had sleep with half of British girls! He was hitting on you. He acted like an idiot with you!"
"He changed! He is not the same Harry. He made clear we are only friends"
"He changed? Why? Why he suddenly loose his interesting in you? Have you thought about it Katy?"
I keep quite
"Don't see this. It's a game Katy. He is playing with you and you even notice it! He pretends he wants you as a friend. You put your defense down and then you can't resist his charm."
"It's not like that..."
"You are too blind to notice that. Hope you realize it before it is too late. Maybe he is right. It's inevitable"
The bell rings and she goes to her Geography class and I went to English class with Mandy's words in my head.
The afternoon in the bakery was really busy. More than the usual. It was good because I could avoid Harry. I know I shouldn't do that. Harry wants to be my friend. It's okay, but...why did Harry change? I don't remember when or how he got so close to me. I don't remember why he stop flirting with me. Maybe he doesn't. Maybe this all a game.
"Katy" Steve calls
"Are you okay?"
Harry had already left? I hadn't notice that. I was so lost in my thoughts.
"Are you here? Katy?!"
"What are thinking?"
"Okay I am going to pretend I believe on you just because I've heard you are an angry girl"
"Harry. He told me you almost fight with a girl in your school. I didn't expect that from you. You are a bad girl uh" he says laughing
"I can't believe he told you "
"Harry talks a lot about you"
"What are you doing? Why you are talking about Harry to me? Did he told you to do this?"
"What? No! I am talking about him because I see you two together. You are special for him. I just thought you should know this"
I breath. Great now not only Mandy's words but Steve's were in my mind. Fighting. I don't know what to believe.
