21. Chapter 21


I wish yesterday was a Friday so that I didn't have to show up at school today. Sadly, yesterday was a Monday and now I'm standing across the street, looking back at the beach instead of crossing the road to walk into school. I'm not upset about the whole situation. I was extremely angry, but I've calmed down since then, Leo helped calm me down. I can't stop thinking about him. Ever since we slept together, he's constantly in my mind. Nobody knows and I plan to keep it that way. It's sort of exciting, having a secret. Although, I think it's a secret, because neither of us know what the hell is going on with each other.

Usually, I meet Zara before school. I can guarantee that won't be happening today. How could she do what she did? I would never do that to someone I call my friend. I could have slept with Chase, I'm so glad I didn't. God knows how long it was going on with them, probably since the moment he asked me out.

Why can't I change form group? Surely that would make my life a little easier. I meet Ruby before hand and we go to our lockers. She tries to be sympathetic with me, which I don't need, because I don't care about Chase.

"Well, I heard what you did, he totally deserved that" she says, looking impressed.

"He deserved worse" I say, shutting the door to my locker and she agrees. We begin to head to form before were stopped by seeing Luca running towards us, down the corridor. If anything, he looks excited.

"What are you doing Luca?" I ask, almost laughing. He can be very odd at times.

"You've got to come" he says, gesturing for us to follow. I'd be concerned if he hadn't got a huge smile on his face. We go with him in the direction he came.

"Want to tell us what is going on?" Ruby asks.

"See for yourself" he says as we walk round the corner and see a crowd of people and hear shouting. I think I know what is going on, which makes me want to run.

"Chase and Leo? Who started it?" Ruby says, whilst I look over loads of people's shoulders to try and see what's going on.

Chase is pinned against the wall until he gets free and they start pushing each other.

"For God sake, I'm going to have to stop this" I say.

"Looks like Ash is already trying" Ruby points out. I go anyway and barge past a few people. This fight is conveniently outside our form room. Hearing people shout 'fight' is sort of pathetic.

Ash pulls Chase back, but that doesn't stop him. Leo throws a punch and Chase dodges it. I can't put up with this, everyone knows this fight is about me, as they're all looking at me now. Probably meaning everyone also knows there is something going on between me and Leo.

"Stop! Both of you stop it!" I shout and they look at me.

"Stay out of this" Chase says, harshly.

"Why? Chase just get lost" I say, seeing him really pisses me off.

"I don't see why your still pissed at me, after you fucked him just after we broke up" Chase says. What? How can he say that? How does he know?

"You told him?" I say to Leo, showing him how hurt I am.

"I didn't say anything, he guessed" Leo says, looking pretty awkward. It's now my fault that everybody knows, that's exactly what Chase wanted.

"What? Are you upset now that everyone knows what you're capable of" Chase says, being a dick head. My head is all over the place.

"We never slept together, you cheated on me with Zara, so don't you dare think badly of ME!" I say, making it clear that he's the one in the wrong.

"You're such a little slut Taylor" he says, just purposely trying to get to me. For once what he's saying actually does upset me, maybe it's because everyone's listening or maybe it's because I'm questioning whether he's right.

"Don't say that to her!" Leo shouts, roughly pushing Chase until he's against the wall. I don't even know what to say to stop them, it's nice that Leo is sticking up for me, but I don't want to be the reason for this fight any longer.

"Why? Because you like her" Chase says, trying to piss him off. It's working. Ash is terrible at this, so I have to intervene and try and separate the two of them.

"Leo it's fine honestly, just ignore him" I say, trying to pull him back, but he's far too strong. It's a God sent when people are pushed aside, because Mr Jenks barges through.

"What on earth is going on? You two break it up, now!" He says. This is the most angry I've ever seen him.

"I said break it up!" He tries again. This time he separates them with his arms.

"Leave us alone" Chase says, clearly wanting to fight some more.

"Everyone get to your form rooms" Mr Jenks shouts. I remain standing there, not knowing what's going to happen now. This is all my fault, I never should have gone out with Chase in the first place.

"You too Taylor, I'll be there in a minute" he says. I look at Leo, feeling bad, I shouldn't as I didn't literally start this fight.

I walk into form and slump my chin on my hand when I get to my desk, meanwhile the others keep on talking about it. Zara hasn't turned up today, that's probably a good thing.

Mr Jenks gets here soon enough, it seems as though Leo and Chase are in the chill zone or something.

"Can we have a little word please Taylor?" He says, as were walking out. Not this again.

"What?" I say, once everyone has left.

"I know that fight was over you, do you want to tell me what's going on?" He asks.

"Not really no" I say, using sarcasm to hide how much this whole thing has gotten to me.

"I'm concerned, please explain" he says, trying to be nice.

"Okay, basically Chase has been cheating on me with Zara since we've been together, everyone does this to me, so I feel pretty crap right now" I say, looking at the floor, I don't want to cry again.

"Oh I'm sorry to hear that" he says, clearly not knowing how to deal with teenage problems. "And what has Leo got to do with all of this?" He says, asking more questions than Phoebe and Ruby.

"He's just been there for me" I say, but he gives me a look that shows he knows what's really going on. He attempts to give me the typical talk teachers give you when you're upset and then I head to first lesson.

Chemistry is my third lesson and he's no where to be seen. Neither is Chase, but I couldn't give a crap about him.

At the end of the day, I meet everyone outside.

"You okay?" Ruby asks, like she's treading on eggshells around me.

"Yeah, I just don't know where the hell Leo is. Has he been sent home?" I ask.

"I heard he was in the chill zone all day and now him and Chase have to stay for detention until 4" Ash says, taking a moment to look up from his phone.

"What they're putting him and Chase in the same room on purpose?" I say.

"No separate detention rooms" He says and that makes a bit more sense.

"I'm going to wait for him, I'll see you guys later" I say, walking away before they can say bye.

I notice Chase in room 13, so I try the other rooms and eventually notice Leo. I wait outside on a bench in the courtyard. It's so hot, I wish I could just go surfing, but I want to wait for him. I'm wearing a casual black dress today, I guess I'm trying to impress him after yesterday.

55 minutes later, a few of the typical detention kids walk out, followed by Leo.

"Taylor" he says, his eyes lighting up when he sees me.

"Hey, are you okay?" I ask, standing up.

"Yeah, you waited?" He says, surprised.

"Course I did, look I'm sorry you had a fight with Chase because of me" I say.

"Your kidding right? It's not your fault, I wanted to kick the shit out of him" he says, making me laugh.

"Well I'm sorry that everyone knows what happened between us yesterday" I say.

"Let them be jealous" he says, smiling.

"Shut up" I tease.

"Shall we get out of here?" he says and I nod. He kisses me quickly, before we start walking.

I'm glad we've both decided to stop talking about earlier.

"Do you want to come back to mine?" I suggest, as we get to the end of my road.

"Yes please" he says, raising an eyebrow. It doesn't annoy me for once.

"You look good today" I say, he always gives me compliments, but I never seem to give him any. It's not a lie, he's wearing a burgundy top that shows his abs, denim shorts with a belt and black lace ups.

"Not so bad yourself" he jokes and puts his arm around my waist as we walk up my drive. I really hope Zac and my Dad aren't in. Dad's jeep is here, but he usually walks to work anyway. I open the door without using my keys, meaning someone is in.

"I think someone's in" I say, as we walk in. He seems to ignore my comment, as he then full on kisses me and let's his hands longer down my back.

"Tay is that... Oh alright man?" I hear Zac say, as he awkwardly notices Leo. I push him away from me, as quickly as I can. Zac smirks, clearly wondering when this started. Leo attempts to keep in a laugh, they both know how awkward I feel right now.

"Alright Zac?" Leo says, trying to wipe the smile off his face.

"Yeah, look Tay, there's kind of someone here" he says, I assume he's talking about Hannah, his girlfriend.

"Is she here?" I hear a voice from the kitchen. I recognise it straight away. I head straight in that direction.

"Tay wait-" Zac says, but he's not quick enough. I walk in to see my dad first and then see a woman in a business suite and her hair is dark and cut in a bob shape. My mom. I don't know how I feel, I never wanted to see her when she asked, have they organised this behind my back?

"Hello darling!" She says, standing up and giving me a hug. I'm too shocked to respond.

"What the hell are you doing here?" I say, not an inch of a smile on my face.

"Came to see my lovely children of course!" She says, her face beaming, I don't buy it. It annoys me that she calls us children, were both adults now.

At that moment, Leo and Zac walk in, I instantly wish I hadn't asked Leo to come back here.

"What's going on?" Leo asks, he's probably concerned because I look like I've just seen a ghost. She practically is one, as I haven't seen her in that long.

"Erm... Leo this is my mom, mom... This is Leo" I say.

"Aww nice to meet you, this is your boyfriend?" She assumes. We look at each other weirdly, we both don't know what to say.

"It's nice to meet you too" he says, dodging the question.

"Did you know she was coming?" I ask Zac.

"No, honestly I didn't" he says, looking scared by the look on my face.

"Aren't you pleased to see me darling?" She asks, in a jokingly way, little does she know she's totally right.

"No not really" I say, crossing my arms.

"Taylor don't" my dad says.

"What's the matter?" Mom asks, she really has no clue.

"Oh now that you've took time out of your busy schedule to come see us, you're asking what's the matter?" I say, crossing my arms.

"Tay mom's travelled a long way" Zac says.

"I couldn't give a crap" I say. "It's been too long mom, like you even care" I add.

"Of course I care about you darling" she says, laughing and not taking this seriously.

"No you don't! Come on Leo lets go" I say and he accepts. I follow him out and then slam the door.

Why is she here now? She's trying to surprise us, but it's not a good surprise at all.

"Are you alright?" He asks, the only one that isn't telling me off for not wanting to see my mom.

"No, I don't want to see her, can we just go?anywhere" I say, my head is overthinking everything. My mom sure does pick her moments. This week has been filled with enough drama, I don't need this now.

"Yeah sure, come on" he says, grabbing my hand. Now it feels very 'coupley', holding hands, but I don't care.


Today has just been insane. I couldn't not fight Chase this morning, he wouldn't quit aggravating me. Now Taylor's mom has shown up. I remember the first time she told me about her mom walking out on her, so I understand why she wouldn't want to see her.

"Bar?" I suggest.

"Yes I need a drink" she says. It's weird, I care about her a lot, I like her, she likes me, we had sex, but we're not together. I don't know what's going on. I'm holding her hand like she is my girlfriend, but it feels like as soon as she's my girlfriend, things will change.

"When did you last see her?" I ask, trying to make conversation about the mom situation.

"Ages ago, can we not talk about her" she says.

"Yeah sorry" I say.

"No I'm being snappy aren't I?" She asks, feeling bad for some reason.

"Yes, but I like it" I say, surprisingly making her smile.

We get to the bar and are soon joined by Ash and Ruby.

I get her a beer and we all sit on the beach front. It's a bit odd, like this is a double date or something.

"How was detention then?" Ash asks.

"Fine, waste of my life though" I say.

"You shouldn't have had a fight with Chase then" Ruby laughs.

"It was worth it" I say. I'm so angry at Chase, that I don't even want to think about him. A girl would never get between us in the past, what's different now.

The night is officially ruined, when we're visited by Mia. She's wearing a pair of hot pink shirts and a white bikini top, her make up is caked on her face as normal. I'm so glad I'm rid of her. I was only into her for the sex, yesterday with Taylor was ten times better and I actually like her.

"What do you want?" Taylor says.

"Nothing, I was just curious" Mia says, laughing, like she's ready to cause trouble.

"Curious about what?" Ruby says.

"You two are together now?" Mia asks, looking from me to Taylor.

"Mia now is not the time to be jealous, just go away" I say, about to lose my patience with her.

"I'm not jealous, but your victimising Chase in all of this when he's just as bad" she says to Taylor. God knows where she's going with all of this. She's trying to make me look like the bad guy, what have I done?

"What do you mean?" Taylor asks, not looking angry, just confused.

"Your new boyfriend is lying to you" Mia says, making my stomach sink, I feel like I know what she's about to say. I guess I have done something wrong.

"He's not my boyfriend" she says, defensively.

"Good because he's got something to tell you, haven't you Leo?" Mia smirks. I don't see why she can't just stay out of all of this, she feeds on upsetting people. There's no need for it.

"What's she talking about?" Taylor asks, standing up. Before I can say anything, Mia buts in.

"I had a chat with Chase earlier, turns out you knew all along didn't you Leo?" Mia asks.

"Knew what?" Taylor says, I can tell she's panicking. I don't know what to say, this is my fault, why didn't I tell her sooner?

"He's known all along about Chase and Zara and decided to let you carry on dating him" Mia says. This is not how I wanted Taylor to find out. Maybe she won't be as angry as I thought she might. Turns out I'm wrong, as she's about to snap.

"What? No, if you knew he was sleeping with Zara, why didn't you tell me?" She says, firstly sounding fuming, but then more upset.

"Look I didn't know how to tell you, I-"

"You what? Wanted to be the shoulder I cried on when I found out? You used me!" She shouts. She's got this all wrong.

"Tay come on, of course I didn't use you" I say, hoping she will listen. Ash and Ruby seem pretty awkward in this conversation, like they don't know what to do or say.

"Yes you did! You're just like the rest of them" She yells.

"No I'm not, you know I'm not" I say, getting angry with myself.

"Oh please, just stay away from me!" She says, leaving. I have to go after her.

"Taylor just listen to me please-" I begin.

"No! Go away!" She insists, before leaving.

Wow, I fucked this up brilliantly. I want to get her back, but she won't even look at me. It's like she thinks this is worse than Chase actually cheating on her. Now she thinks I'm just like him and I'm not. What can I do?

She hates me now, more than she ever used to say she did.

"Leo just let her go" Ruby says.

"She's pathetic and-" Mia begins. I swear if one more person disses Taylor, I'm going to go ape shit. I've already had Chase calling her a slut this morning. The only slut around here is standing right in roll front of me.

"Mia just go, piss off!" I demand, she's such a troublemaker. I know I should have told Taylor I knew about everything, but it wasn't Mia's place to say it.

"Well just call me if-"

Is she serious? That just makes me even more angry.

"I said piss off!" I say again. She rushes off, looking surprised. I'm usually so laid back, but right now I'm ready to punch something.

"Why didn't you tell her?" Ruby asks, like I'm stupid.

"I don't know okay!" I say, smacking my forehead into the palms of my hands, thinking about how much I've screwed up.

"Chase shouldn't have cheated on her in the first place" I say, I guess trying to defend myself. Or maybe I'm just looking for some sort of reason as to why I kept it to myself. I wanted to tell Ash, but every time I brought it up, he said there was nothing going on with Zara and Chase.

"I know, but you've just hurt her even more by not telling her" Ruby says, it's like she thinks I can't see I'm in the wrong. I know I am.

"I need to talk to her" I say, about to go look for her, surely she wouldn't go back home to her mom.

"No I'll go, you should probably stay away from her for a while" Ruby says, before leaving us. At least Taylor won't be on her own, Ruby might be able to sort things out.

"At least you didn't actually cheat on her" Ash says, trying to make the best of a bad situation. He's right, but I've just thrown away something great. Mia had to go and spoil everything. Then again, it's me that's spoilt everything.
