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?


66. Lashing Out

Kalei's POV

"You evil beast!" Michael yelled and stepped forward, almost crushing me. "How could you do that to someone so sweet?! She's a perfect girl and you just stepped all over her again and again!" Michael had created a scene in the cafeteria.

"Michael, it's fine, really," I plead, pushing him back to his spot before he fully lashes out.

"No, it's not, K!"

"Lei," Jaden corrected.

"She lives in Australia now and in Australia we call her K so get used to it and shut up! K, she's been so horrible to you, why do you keep forgiving her? You're not allowed to blame your horoscope this time!" Michael glared at me. Not in anger, but in worry.

"It's just who she is, Mikey," Bella rolled her eyes and side-hugged Jaden. "If K-"

"Don't call me that! You have no right!" I yell.

"I've lived in Australia longer than you. I can call you whatever I want," she spat. "If K was really hurt by Jay, she wouldn't have forgiven her so many times, right Jay?" Bella winked at Jaden.

"No! And don't call me Jay! You're not my friend," Jaden snapped, staring Bella down.

"Don't act so innocent!" Michael yelled over the girls. "I know you're not truly friends with K! When you hugged her during your 'make up', you gave an evil smirk that matched your evil self! You disgust me!" He was so loud now.

"Michael, please," I whine.

"Don't talk to Jaden like that! Yore not too innocent either! We all know you've been seeing someone else! Some freaking 29-year old female dog prostitute! Every Sunday!" Bella defended. Everyone gasped at Michael. I felt tears prick my eyes. The blood from Michael's face drained when he looked at me.

"It's not true," I whisper to myself. "Michael, tell me it's not true."

"K, I- you- we both-" Michael started.

"You can't even come up with a coverup! It is true! You know I finally decided to trust someone, and that was you. I told you everything. I showed you my scars. I showed you my tears. I showed you everything, even things my parents don't know! And what do I get for trusting again? I get betrayed! You're just like everyone else, Michael. You lure me in like a sea bass or whatever and make me feel safe. But then you leave me and break me down again! You're no different than Jaden or Bella! Or anyone else who was ever rude to me!" I was crying now. I was afraid I'd drown the cafeteria with my tears.

"Kalei, you know for a fact that I-"

"Just forget it! I've heard every excuse ever!" I gasped. "It was that notch from Pizza Hut, wasn't it? Dang it, Michael, I knew you were hiding something!"

"K, maybe you should-" I cut Calum off.

"No! Okay, I bet you all are in it too! Maybe Luke, too, maybe not. But just, just, forget you all! Forget you! Forget it! Forget me! Leave me just like everyone in my life!" I push Michael and everyone else out of the way as I run to the end of the cafeteria and turn the corner. I got looks from all students. Dirty looks, pitiful looks, smirks, everything. I'm done. I can't do this anymore. I ran to the bathroom and locked myself in the stall until the end of passing period.




Michael's POV

I watched as K ran out of the cafeteria. My cheeks still were numb from her disbelieving face. I stared back at Bella with anger.

"Why would you say that?!" I yelled at her.

"It's true, isn't it? What's her name... Isn't it like Abby Breston or something like that?" Bella rolled her eyes.

"Abigail Breslin?!" The boys and I yelled at the same time. They all burst into chaos.

"Michael are you back together with her?" Luke asked.

"Michael broke up with her like two years ago!" Calum yelled.

"No he's not with her, shut up, Luke!" Ashton said.

"Oh my god, shut up!" I yell over them all. "Bella- Abigail and I broke up two years ago, and I haven't hung out with her, I just laugh at her song continuously. It's about how she's not obsessed with me or whatever, and yelling at me that I suck."

"Oops," Bella rolled her eyes.

"Michael, I still don't know what your talking about when you said I smirked. I traveled basically half around the world to see my best friend again and to make things right. I promised I wouldn't hurt her again," Jaden said sadly, disappointed that I would accuse her of such a thing.

"Oh you little..." I trailed off as I step towards Jaden.

"Stay away from her, Gordon!" Bella steps up to me and gives me a left hook into my stomach.

"Don't, DON'T, use my middle name!" I grab her shoulders and squeeze.

"Or what? You gonna cheat on Kalei again?" She went up a little and punched me right in the face. I groaned and felt my nose.

"Michael, man, you're bleeding," Calum looked worried. I tapped my nose and blood began rushing out, tap, tap tapping against the ground.

"Awe, is the poor wittle kitten bweeding?" Bella pouted.

"Notch," I spat.

"What in the name of Jesus of Suburbia is a notch?" Bella rolled her eyes.

"Don't you dare put Green Day on your side. Green Day would not approve of this." I crossed my arms.

"American Idiot," Jaden stuck her tongue out.

"You're the only one here who's from America, genius. And if were pulling references, Bella, before you met Kalei, you were a BASKET CASE." I smirked as the truth soaked into her.

"Ugh, whatever! So what's a notch, Kitten?"

"That's for K and I to know, and you to never find out," I snapped.

"Whatever, let's go, Jay." Bella grabbed Jaden's arm and pulled.

"No, let go of me," Jaden fought. She pulled, but Bella was stronger and kept dragging until they were out of sight.

"Michael, you're still bleeding. Do you think she broke your nose?" A Cheshire Cat asked me.

"No, dude, I'm, I'm, I'm finne," I slur.

"He's losing too much blood. That's a lot from just a punch in the nose," the tree-tall penguin told the rest of the animals.

"I'm okayy..." I trill, and everything I see begins to fade.

"Mike, no you're not," A small hummingbird with a very high-pitched voice grabbed my hand. It's all fading quickly. It's quiet as my world spirals into darkness.

*okay so I know when you break your nose you'd never pass out and if you did you wouldn't be hallucinating about animals or whatever, but this is just my imagination being bored so don't hate on the unreality of this chapter
