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?


72. Retaliation

Kalei's POV

The school bell rang, signaling lunch was over.

"uggGGHH," I groan and throw my head back. "I want lunch to last a little longer~"

Luke giggles and puts his hand up to where it's facing the clock across the cafeteria. It's as if he's trying to use the force to move the clock hands back.

"Hey guys, Luke is using the force~" Michael snorts.

"Wrong last name, babe," Alyssa giggles and nuzzles Luke. He fake pouts and puts his arm down.

Babe... I look away from the table. Luke doesn't seem to have a problem with it... Why do I have such a bad feeling?

"You okay, K?" Michael puts his hand on my knee and I fight the urge to flinch.

"Lei~" Jaden continues to fake cough and I roll my eyes.

"I'm fine," I say and stand up. "See you guys later~" I walk out of the cafeteria without another word. Behind me, I can hear questions. "What's her deal?" "Is she okay?" "Should we follow her?" "Leave her alone~" All these phrases echoed in my head as I continued to walk.

Skylar's POV

"Hmm... She's not normal~" Bella sighs and stands up. I fight the urge to slap her with all my might. I stand up too.

"And you are?" I snap. Bella seems to stare amber-colored daggers into my eyes.

"Better watch it, fangirl~ I was her best friend first. She trusts me the most."


Then, as if on cue, everyone except Bella bursts into laughter.

"Trusts you? Kalei? Did someone throw a rock at your head or something?" Calum laughs. Bella begins to turn red. I couldn't tell if it was from embarrassment or anger.

"Haha, yeah, you couldn't pay her a million bucks to trust you again," Olivia snickers.

Hailey begins to shake, she wasn't laughing but I could tell she desperately wanted to. She shakes and shakes and then bursts into laughter as well. "Haha! You have a better chance of finding a dodo bird than getting K to trust you again!"

Luke snorts, "she'd trust Bill Cipher before she trusts you." Everyone stops laughing for a second. "What? It's not that hard to know what stuff she's into when you sit next to her in 5th period." Everyone starts laughing again, this time a bit quieter.

"Alright, I get it!" Bella snaps. "I screwed things up with her-" she's cut off.

"Big time," Ashton remarks.

"I know I screwed her up, okay? I didn't think she's take all this so much to heart!" Bella crosses her arms and looks away, scoffing.

"Really? You didn't think making her cry and lose all of her friends would influence her self-esteem in any way?" I scoff and cross my arms as well.

Bella rolls her eyes. "Tch... Why am I even here?" She asks herself, referring to being next to us.

I look at her with wide eyes and a sarcastic smile. "Yeah. Why are you here?" I glare at her and dart my eyes to the hallway.

"Alright, alright. I get the hint. I guess I'm just not wanted here..." She walks off slowly, looking back to see if anyone will stop her.

"No. You're not~" I snap.

"Chop chop, can you go any slower?" Olivia says.

"Tch.." Bella rolls her eyes and walks away.

"'Bout time. I was losing brain cells talking to her," Jenai sighed with a humorous smile.

"Agreed," everyone said, but not at the same time.

Bella's POV

I walk down the hallway in silence. Who do they think they are, just picking on me like that. They called me a bully, they're on me like quills on a porcupine- Eleven to one...

I spot Kalei and grin. Before she can do anything about it, I walk up to her and slam an arm around her shoulder. I feel a flinch and grin even more. "SO Kalei~ how ya doin'?" I ask.

K steps over and my arm falls next to me. "Don't touch me, don't talk to me, don't say my name. I hate you and I do for a very good reason that you and I both know.

"Oh?" I ask, faking confusion. "Well please elaborate. If you're willing to hold a grudge for it, I deserve to know what your 'good reason' is."

"You know exactly what. I'm tired of playing around. Just get out of my life and stay out. Go find someone else to torture." K starts walking again, but I grab her arm tightly. She flinches again, and I hold back laughter. "Let go of my arm!" She lashes out. I've never seen her get this mad before. It was interesting.

"Why? Is there some secret to it?" I ask, running my fingernail up and down her long sleeves. She jerks her arm away.

"No! Just go away already!" K runs off without another word. Pushing a far away door open, she walks outside to her next class. Once K is out of view, I begin to crack up. I laugh and laugh and keep on laughing. I'm standing in the hallway as I laugh and people start to push me around.

"Watch it!" I snap. Everyone just rolls their eyes or scoffs at me. I earned some dirty looks and whispers from other sophomores. I hear "the rumors are true", "she really did", "to a freshman? From America?", and "what a witch". I growl and push past people to get to my next class.

No one can tell me who to be. No one can tell me how I have fun. No one can tell me which dolls I choose to play with~
