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?


55. Mixed Emotions

Kalei's POV

The longer Michael had his lips against mine, the more  comfortable I felt. His touch sent fiery electricity through my body, from my head to my toes. I wrapped my arms underneath his and around his body, pulling him into a hug. He must have noticed, because he put his arms over mine and pulled me in deeper. I can't believe I was doubting asking him out. This was so sudden, but it feels so amazing. We were running out of air and needed to breathe, but I felt a pain in my chest when we pulled away. He looked at me with a smile. Even though we were in the darkness of the night, I could see his lovely green eyes sparkling with sincerity. I smiled back, I hope he could tell I was just as sincere. 

"You have no idea how long I've been waiting to do that," Michael sighed.

"Believe me or not, I've been waiting, too. I just hadn't known it," I smiled.

"Oh yeah? How long have you been waiting?" I thought I saw him smirk.

"Since you sang to me at Blu Berry. You?"

"This is embarrassing, but it was when I flipped out on you at Blu Berry."

I flashbacked to when he was yelling at me for making fun of the band. I was so scared at the time, now I can't imagine being scared of him. The way he froze as I sat in the corner, dreading the punch he was about to unleash, remembering it seemed to make me happy for some reason. I guessed the moment he froze and looked around in guilt was when he fell for me. 

"Strange moment to fall," Was all I said as I reminisced.

"I know," He chuckled, pulling me in again.

"As much as I loved this moment now, it is still pretty late. Jaden and I should go," I pulled away from his embrace. I heard a whimper and I giggled. "Don't worry, I'll be at school tomorrow, and hopefully you will be too."

"If you're there, I'm there," He winked. "Now go get your evil beast of a friend." He pushed me towards the door. 

When I opened the door just enough to see what everyone was doing, I felt a pang of pity for Jaden. All the boys were playing Fifa on the couch as Jaden sat on the floor, twirling a strand of hair around her finger. I felt Michael's breath on me as he laughed.

"Don't laugh," I smacked his chest. "She looks so sad." I heard him humming the chorus to She Looks So Perfect and looked at him with some sense of seriousness.

"But you hate her, and by your past, I'd say she hates you," He defended himself.

"I don't hate her, I mean she's not my bestie or whatever, but I still care about her. You know, it's in my horoscope," I  shrugged.

"I guess," He sighed. "You Sagittarians ruin everything."

I pushed the door open all the way, and the boys turned their heads to look at us. Jaden just barely lifted her head to make eye contact. I walked in and sat by her. It seemed as if her shoulders turned to jelly as I put my arm around her in sympathy. I looked at Michael to distract the boys. He glared at me in a way of saying "No. Way". I pleaded with my eyes. He rolled his eyes and turned to the boys.

"Hey guys, come to the kitchen. I bought some more- uh- Vegemite?" They snickered like they didn't believe him. He signaled his eyes to me and Jaden. Luke mouthed an overdramatic "ohh" and went to the kitchen. Ashton and Calum followed Mikey into the kitchen and left us alone. I turned to face Jaden.

"Listen," I sighed. "I know I was kinda hard on you today, but-" She cut me off with a sharp inhale. 

"I'm not mad at you, Kalei. Believe me or not, I'm actually mad at myself."
