Not For Me

Kalei has just moved from Washington to Australia to get away from her problems. She thinks she'll never make any friends, and no one will like her. But on her first day of school, someone's major crushing. But what will happen when she's got her eye on his best friend?

Kalei's POV

I walked in school, Michael's hand still draped across my shoulder. Maybe I should just forgive him. He was only joking, I think.

"Thanks Mikey" I said as I hugged him, burying my face into his chest.

"You're welcome, but for what?"

"Staying with me. Usually whenever I get mad at a friend, they get mad at me and I have to apologize for being mad"

"That's stupid. You didn't even do anything" He said as we walked to the breakfast line.

"Exactly. Why do you think I moved to Australia?"

"Well if that was the reason, then I'm happy it happened" He lightly kissed the top of my head and I gasped. "K, are you ok?" He asked with huge concern. My face became red. My cheeks burned.

"What if he saw that?" I asked to myself. I shook the thought from my head. "Um, yeah, I'm fine" I faked a smile and sat down with him. He was just about to say something when I saw our friends run towards us. Ashton, Calum, Luke, Bella, Skylar, Olivia, and Hailey all ran in a stampede. I stood up and said hi to them.

"What the heck, K?" Skylar asked me.

"What?" I said.

"You went completely missing and no one knew where! Not even Michael" I saw Michael shudder when she said this.

"Michael" Bella walked up to him.

"Yes?" He asked while eating my donut. I giggled.

"Do you have something you would like to share with us?" She asked. He gulped.


"Bella get away from him. I was by myself, he has nothing to do with it" I stepped up to her.

"Oh, so you're coming to his defense? That's real cute hon. Real cute" I boiled when she said this. "Aww, now you're shaking just like a cute little Chihuahua!" She giggled. "No, cutie, don't be mad. It'll give you wrinkles and you won't be cute anymore!" She was cracking herself up.

"That's IT!" I yelled at her. She stopped laughing. "Arabella you KNOW I hate being called cute! You KNOW Michael had nothing to do with this! Why are you such a BULLY?"

"Aw snap bringing out the b-word" Ashton said. I glared at him. "Hey nice cat eyes. Ya look fierce" I couldn't help but giggle.

"Bully? I am nothing of the sort" Bella played innocent.

"Ugh you are so lucky I used to care about you or else your sorry butt might be in the ER" I yelled at her. I felt an arm around me. I turned to see Michael.

"Ok Bella that's enough" Michael said.

"You think I'm scared of you, you little kitten?" She crossed her arms.

"No, and you shouldn't be. Because I did have something to do with it"

"Michael, what are you doing?" I looked up at him.

"Bella's not gonna win" He said without looking at me.

"Oh, you did, did you? Well please give me, and the rest of us, the pleasure of knowing" Bella said. I looked over at Luke. He looked like someone just shattered his heart. That made my heart shatter.'

"No, Michael. If someone's gonna tell her, it'll be me" I stepped forward.

"Haha the little cutie wants to defend herself" I fought every urge to slap her.

"I was with MICHAEL" I yelled at her, while everyone else gasped. "Yeah, because SOMETIMES I need someone who really cares. And I feel like Michael is the only one who does. Bella, you don't care. You just used me to get to Calum. Olivia, Skylar, and Hailey, you can't care, you just met me. Calum, you don't care, cos you're all lovey dovey with a bully. Ashton, you don't care, right now all you care about is hooking up with Hailey. And Luke, you don't care, you hated me the first day we met. You only like me because I'm 'the most beautiful girl you've ever met'. Do you know how shallow that is? You don't even know me. I bet if I had acne everywhere and headgear braces you would hate me still. The only one who's taken the time to know me is Michael. So I hung out with him. He told you he didn't know where I was cos that's what I told him to do. Because I didn't want BELLA to feel betrayed, or SKYLAR to feel untrusted, or Luke to feel heartbroken" I now was on the verge of tears. Michael hugged me.

"That was brave" He whispered into my hair.

"Well, well, well. Now the cat's out of the bag" Bella laughed. She pulled out a pencil from her backpack and went up to Luke.

"Luke" I whispered in a whine. A tear fell down my cheek as he looked down.

"Ok Luke, how does it feel to have your heart ripped out by the one you love?" Bella asked in a news reporter voice.

"Um" Luke started. "It feels like, um, it feels like" He looked at me.

"Luke, please"

"It's cruel and unusual punishment for something I didn't do" He said, and walked away.

"NO! Luke PLEASE! I didn't mean that!" I fell to my knees, sobbing.

"Very interesting" Bella smirked. "Skylar-" She was cut off.

"Leave me alone" Skylar said.

"How does it feel to-"

"Leave me ALONE!" Skylar ran off and followed Luke.

"SKYLAR!" I screamed.

"Ah, one by one we go. Ahem, Ashton, how does it-" Ashton just walked away, not seeming interested at all. Hailey followed. "Olivia. Olivia, Olivia. Tell me, what's it like-" Olivia slapped the pencil out of Bella's hand and ran off. Bella smiled. The only one left was Calum. "Hey, baby, my best friend is calling me a bully. Could we go? I don't like mean people" Calum slowly nodded and walked away with her. "See ya later, cutie" She threw pencil up and it conveniently hit me on the top of the head.

"I just lost all of my friends. Just like that" I said to myself. Michael sat down next to me as the school bell rang and everybody in the lunch room went to first period.

"I'll never leave you" Michael said as he hugged me tightly and kissed the top of my head.
