She kisses my cheek. I felt as the warm tingle spread through my body. Errr ma gerd... She began walking to the boys and I follow. Ash places his arm around her shoulder. "Let's go home," he says. I follow behind lark as I watch his fists tighten. I pat his shoulder. "Lark? Can we speak please," I say. He nods and I tell the others to take willow to Ashton's house. As they disappear into the distance, I face lark. He seems upset.
"I know..." I say.
"That you love her..."
A tear rolls down his cheek and shows an expression of deny. I continue to stare at him until he looked at me and slowly nodded. "I understand lark..." I say.
"I'm scared Luke... I can't tell her how I feel. She's my bestfriend and I can't just tell her. I can't stand seeing her with other guys you know... I'm being so selfish." He says.
I nod. "It's okay lark. It's normal to have feelings for someone you've known for a long time. Maybe you should tell her? I'm sure she will understand. I've seen the looks that she's given you. I rekon you may have a chance." I say.
He looks up and thinks for a sec. "Hm..." He agrees. He walks down the hall away from me. Proberbly went to find the boys.
I like willow. I really do and I am a bit jealous but I've known her for only 3 days. I need to get to know her more. Maybe I should become her best friend? Just like lark. I know that Ashton, Michael and Calum likes her. I can tell when Ashton is so caring of her and the way he Smiles at her. The way she changed Michaels feelings and when Calum talks about her non stop. I think about it for a sec. I have an idea...
I silently walk with the boys to Ashton's place. Ashton let's us inside and I sit on the couch. Ash and Calum sit next to me while Michael sit on the floor facing me. "Where's Luke?" I ask looking around. "He was talking to lark," he said. I look down. "Oh..."
Ash places his hand on mine and smiles at me. They want to know... I'll just wait till Luke gets here.
I walk away from Luke thinking. Should I? Hmm... I'll just leave willow alone for now. I walk back home and sigh of relief because Gav isn't home. I walk in and sit on the couch. I roll up my sleeve and looked at her name engraved into my arm. I think about her and smile. I'll tell her, just not now...
I enter the apartment to see the boys in a circle around willow. They arnt talking. I sit next to ash looking at her, expecting her to tell us what happened. She sighs. "Ok..." She whispers. I wait for her to talk again. "When we were sitting in science... Ash held my hand and lark wondered why I was smiling. I said an excuse and got hate from it. I walked out if class and sat myself behind a tree... And ... I heard a voice call for me and grabbed me from behind and smacked me against the tree. Next thing you know, Peta is standing in front of me, hitting me in the head..." She explains. Ash is boiling. He stands up and leaves the room. Willow looks down with regret. I sit closer to her and comfort her. "It's okay..." I whisper. Michael and Calum were a bit concerned. I can't see her like this... Only three days and she's getting bullied already... I pull her up and lead her to the backyard. "Willow... What's going on at home..." I ask. She crys more. "M-my f-fat-her..." She says. I wipe her tears and bring her closer. "Willow, I am here for you, don't let things being you down." I say lifting her chin up. She smiles. "Luke, you have helped me so much in these 2 days. You are know known as my bestfriend." She says poking my nose.
