7. Chapter 6 || The 'date'

Fridays were always a struggle. I grabbed my phone and went on to my social media. after about five minutes, okay fifteen minutes ;D I got out of bed and got ready. The whole morning was a blur. Mr Lewis went on and on about nonsense and finally the bell went signalling third period. In science we were learning about push and pull forces. The teacher miss White needed to go out for a minute so the class was alone, which is a bad idea. Jesse decided that this would be a great time to tell the whole class about Ollie. "I have a story to tell." He smirked. "Jesse, please stop." I begged. He looked at me and smirked then continued. "One day there was this girl called Lily Parker, you might of seen her cause she's in our class. Any way. The funniest thing is, she has no friends." I cut him off. "I do so have friends." I said. "Then why do you hang out with psycho teenagers?" He asked still smirking. How could he? Just say that about Ollie to the whole class like its no big deal. I got a lump in my throat, tears started to spill. "Look, gets some tissues. she's going to cry." He said. This is ending now, I've had enough. "You know what Jesse, maybe if you were nice to people and didn't get in their business then everyone would like you for once." I said and ran out of class. Chloe found me a couple minutes later. She came up to me and gave a big hug. We went to recess together. Today was like - 8 degrees, okay probably not but its flipping freezing. As everyone talked I just thought about what Jesse had said. "I'm getting a Tea, anyone want one?" I asked. "I'll have one." Grace and Chloe said. I got up and headed for the little canteen on the other side of the asphalt. All day everyone came up to me and said 'How is your psycho friend?' or 'You're such a freak.' At the end of the day I was so happy. Not just because I finally got to go and see Ollie, but so I could leave this horrible place. I ran through the forest and straight to his house, when I got there I hesitated before knocking on the door. 'What if he hurts me?' 'What if I make him cry?' Soon after I knocked on the door he came up and opened it. "Nice to see you again." He greeted. "That's the nicest welcome I've gotten from you." I said. He blushed. He was so cute. "So what are we doing today?" I asked. "We are having a frozen yogurt date." He beamed. "A date?" I questioned. "I ah I mean hangout." He stumbled on his words. once we had gotten our ice cream we headed to his room. "Tell me about yourself." He said. "Hmmm." I thought for a minute. "My favourite animal is a fox, I love pop music but a bit of rock and classical. And yeah. Not much to know." I said. He just nodded staring directly into my eyes. "Question, why don't you leave your house? No one is stopping you." I said. "I'm stopping myself Lily. It's along story that I don't want to talk about. I just want to hear about you." He said. "So I'm just going to blab on and on about myself and you stay quiet?" I asked. "I like hearing you blab." He smiled. "I'm not talking about myself with no stories in return." I said. "Quiet a stubborn girl aren't you?" He smirked. He gestured for me to lay next to him on the floor. "So we will just stay like this?" I asked. "Yep, just stay right there beside me, okay?" He asked. "Okay Ollie, I won't go anywhere." I said and drifted off. - I bolted up when I realised I was still there with him. "Sorry, I didn't mean to fall asleep. it was silent and I was comftorble and you smell good and ugh I'm bad at this." I said in one breath. He laughed. "its okay..., I smell good?" He asked. I blushed. "It makes me feel calm." I said. "You make me feel calm." He smiled. "You didn't seem calm when we first met?" I raised one eyebrow smirking. "Sorry, I'm just not used to having people around." He admitted. "Are you okay with it now? Do you like having me around? Cause I can go if you want." I said. He laughed again. "I didn't think I would want anyone else around, except for the people I live with." He said. There was a knock at the door and a woman with long dark brown hair came in. "Ollie, Dinner in a few minutes." She said. "Do you want to stay for dinner love?" She asked me. I looked at Ollie, he looked like he was begging for me to stay. Once we got our food we headed to the front porch. It was a nice day. "Okay how about this, I'll tell you three things about me but no questions, got it?" He asked. "Got it." I replied. "I'm Sixteen, turning seventeen in September. How old are you?" He asked me. "I just turned sixteen in March." I said. "I haven't had a friend over in three years and I have one more but its embarrassing." He said. "Well I'll tell you one of my ones if you tell me yours." I said. "Okay, you first." He said. "Well, I hadn't given up sleeping with a teddy until I was thirteen." I said. "Thirteen?! That's like only three years ago." He said sarcastically. "Yeah, yeah I know, whats yours?" I asked "Well, I haven't had my first kiss yet." He said shyly. "Well, you're still young. You don't have to rush things. And if it makes you feel any better. I haven't had mine either." I said truthfully. After that I decided, as much as I wanted to stay I had to go home. "Well, I have to go back home now. I'm free tomorrow." I said hoping we will let me come back. "Do you want to come over at about 4:30 pm?" He asked. Yes score! "Yeah, sure." I said casually, inside I was screaming with joy. "Okay, bye." He waved and went inside. I couldn't control my excitement. I danced all the way back. When I got home I found mum on the couch with Abigail. They looked at me. "Where have you been?" Mum asked. "Umm, at the park? With Chloe." I lied. "Okay, what ever." Mum waved me off. I decided I should go to bed. I got in the shower to wash the day off and grabbed some p.j's. After getting ready. I got in bed and instantly fell asleep. How was this chapter? Good, bad or meh? Let me know! I love you guys! Remember to LIKE RATE COMMENT VOTE :) Ellie xx
