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?


65. Show and Tell

Kalei's POV

"Michael..." I said as I pull away from his lips.

"Hmm?" He smiles and wraps his arm around my waist.

"We have to go now, school's gonna start soon and I need breakfast," I whine. A low grumble comes from Michael as I flip open the trunk and reveal us to the light.

"Gah!!" We both hiss at the blinding light. Once I finally got used to it, I swing my legs over to the back to get ready to slide off. Just before I hop out of the trunk, Michael tightens his grip around me.

"C'mon, Mike, we have to go," I bend down and kiss his forehead. He groans in reply. "Get out or I'm gonna yell your middle name."

Michael stayed still for a moment, then released me and lightly shoved me out of the car so he can get out. He winced as I grabbed his hand and pulled him further into the light of the bright sun.

Once Michael was steady ad got used to the light, we walked over to the school, Michael's hand flopped over my shoulder as he squeezed me tight.




We walked into the school, and were surprised by what we saw. Jaden and Bella were talking to each other. It seemed like a normal conversation, as if they'd been friedns for years. Michael and I walked over to the girls. When we did, it seemed as though we attracted a crowd. It was a crowd made up of Luke, Calum, Ashton, Hailey, Skylar, Olivia, Alyssa, and three girls I didn't know. All of them were surrounding Bella and Jaden. They stopped talking and looked at us.

"May we help you?" Bella sighed and rolled her eyes. She scanned over the crowd and smirked when she saw me.

"Oh you little-" I stepped forward but was cut off when Michael wrapped his arm around me and pulled me back. I mouthed to her, 'you got lucky'. She mouthed back, 'luck had nothing to do with it', and winked at me. I growled in reply.

"Why don't you introduce Jaden to everyone?" Michael whispered a suggestion in my ear. I nodded and stepped forward.

"Hailey, Olivia, Skylar, Alyssa..... Bella... This is Jaden. She was my best friend back in America," I explain. "Boys-" I was cut off.

"5sos," Jaden coughed excitedly.

"Oh my god," I rolled my eyes, "5SOS, you already met Jaden like yesterday." I looked at Michael. "All done," I say quickly and step back over to Michael. "Oh, and you girls, this is Jaden.... whoever you girls are..." I squint and look at them up and down.

"Lissa, you go first," Luke blushed at Alyssa.

"Okay, this is my bestie Live. That's all. She follows me around a lot and I follow her a lot, I guess. She's my best friend so yeah. All done," Alyssa said, nodding her head at one of the girls. Live had dark brown hair that made my eyes hurt, because it looked as if she attempted dying it blonde but failed, and a faded brown eye color that gave me a bad feeling about her. She was wearing a Mickey Mouse crop top with denim skinny jeans and black and white Keds.

I nodded at the other two girls, who looked somewhat similar.

"Oh," Calum realized it was his turn, "Kalei and friends, this is Jenai." Calum smiled brightly as he squeezed the dirty blond. She blushed deeply and smiled at the ground.

"Hi," she said quietly. I scanned her. She had mid-back length dirty blond hair and very dark brown eyes. She wasn't short, but wasn't tall, either. On her legs were jeans that weren't fully ripped, but frayed that started from her mid-thigh and frayed down to the middle of her shin. She had a somewhat dark teal long sleeve shirt and wore a backpack on her back that was dark blue but had contrasting pink roses. Jenai slowly looked up at me and gave a small smile, which made me realize that everyone was watching me watch Jaden with an eagle eye. I darted my eyes over to the girl standing right by Jenai. "Oh, um, this is my best friend, Brianna," she mumbled.

"Heyyy," Brianna waved at me. She had her sleek dirty blond hair pulled back into a high ponytail that stopped short of her neck. Jenai seemed average, but Brianna was pretty short. She wore a leather jacket that had cotton sleeves and grey leggings that just stopped when they reached her dark grey flats. Her green eyes twinkled at me as they swirled into a blue-ish color.

"Whoa," I jumped back. "Your eyes..."

"Oh, yeah they do that," Brianna smiled and blushed. "I actually think it's pretty cool." Her voice was higher than even Alyssa's.

"So, um, Jaden?" Skylar stepped into view from behind everyone. "How did you and K-"

"Lei," Jaden corrected.

"What?" Skylar looked at Jaden in confusion.

"You're talking about Kalei, right?" Skylar nodded.

"Jaden..." I whined.

"Her nickname isn't 'K', like you guys call her. It's Lei. That's what it was in America, that's what it's gonna be in Australia," Jaden crossed her arms.

"Um... okay? How did you and Lei meet? What's your full backstory between you and Lei?" Skylar seemed irritated by having to call me something different than she's used to.

"Skylar, please call me K. Jaden's just too stubborn to give in." I look at Jaden and she flashed me a teasing smile.

"Sweet," Skylar smiled. Good, I can't have more people using my old nickname, it brings back memories. Not good memories...

"Ok, so anyways..." Jaden began to explain our backstory 'in a nutshell'. When she finished explaining, she looked at the crowd. Bella smirked at her and gave her a thumbs up. Everyone else was just shocked. Shocked at how casually Jaden had explained how many times she's hurt me. How many times she's lied to me. How many times she's spread rumors. Michael was shaking in anger.

"You evil beast!" He yelled and stepped forward, almost crushing me.
