7. Kicked Out

Chapter 5

"Kicked Out"

AN:

Avery has been at Dan and Phil's for about a month

~

Avery's POV

"I'm late. A week and a half late", I choked out.

"What do you mean?", Dan asked.

"I got an email from my university saying that I got the starting day wrong. I was supposed to start a week and a half ago and when you miss a week or more, they kick you out", I said.

"So you're kicked out of university?", Phil asked.

I nodded as I wiped a few stray tears from my face.

"Hey don't cry", Dan said as he hugged me, "We'll figure something out".

"Hey Avery I have to go, but call or text me if you need anything", Rachel said.

I just nodded and then she left.

"Avery, do you feel like eating?", Phil asked.

"No not really. I think I'm just going to go take a shower", I said.

"Mkay", said Phil.

As I got up and went to take my shower, a few more tears fell down my face. I can't believe I was kicked out of university. What would I do now? How am I going to live? All of these qusestions were piling up inside my head and I was starting to get a headache.

Maybe my shower will clear my head.

Dan's POV

"What's she going to do now?", Phil asked.

"Well, she's going to stay here until she figures things out. To be honest, I don't want her to leave", I said.

"Dan?", said Phil.

"Yeah?", I said.

"You fancy her, don't you?", he asked.

"Let's talk about something else", I said quickly.

"But Dan-", Phil began.

"Okay maybe I do fancy her a little. Maybe a lot. Anyways, what did you think of her friend?", I said.

"I thought she was pretty. Gorgeous in fact", said Phil.

"Well, what do you say you ask her out?", I said. Phil's face began to turn red.

"Only if you ask Avery out too", he said, pointing at me.

"Deal", I said.

"What are you guys talking about?", Avery asked.

"Oh hi Avery. Didn't see you there", I said.

"We were just discussing your situation, Avery. You're welcome to stay with us until you figure things out", Phil said.

"Thanks guys. I really appreciate it", Avery said.

As she started walking away, Phil gave me the "don't you have something to say" look.

"Wait Avery", I said.

"What is it?", she asked.

"Um...would you...uhhh", I started to say as I nervously scratched the back of my head.

"What is it, Dan?", Avery asked.

"Yeah Dan. What is it?", said Phil. I gave him the "shut up or I'll kill you" look.

"What I was going to say was...ummm...Avery would you like to go out with me?", I asked.

At first, she didn't answer. She had kind of a confused look on her face.

But finally, with the biggest smile on her face, she said, "Yes".

Avery's POV

As I rinsed the last bit of soap from my hair, I did the thinking thing again.

My family still thinks I'm going to school

What am I going to tell them?

What am I going to do?

I need to get a job

When my hands were so pruned that they hurt, I got out of the shower and put on a plain black t-shirt and some plaid pajama pants.

"Deal", I head Dan say from the living room.

"What are you guys talking about?", I asked as I went out there.

"Oh hi Avery. Didn't see you there", Dan said.

"We were just discussing your situation, Avery. You're welcome to stay with us until you figure things out", Phil said.

"Thanks guys. I really appreciate it", I said.

As she started walking away, Dan stopped me.

"Wait Avery", he said.

"What is it?", I asked.

"Um...would you...uhhh", Dan started to say as he nervously scratched the back of his head.

"What is it, Dan?", I asked.

"Yeah Dan. What is it?", said Phil. Dan gave him the "shut up or I'll kill you" look.

"What I was going to say was...ummm...Avery would you like to go out with me?", Dan asked.

I didn't answer at first. I was kind of a confused.

But finally, with the biggest smile on my face, I said, "Yes". And that put the biggest smile on Dan's face.

"Can I say it now?", Phil asked.

"Go on, then", Dan said.

"I ship it!", Phil said.

Dan rolled his eyes, but still wore a smile.

"Oh yeah Avery. Can I have Rachel's number?", Phil asked.

"Sure. Why?", I said.

"I have my reasons", he said.

"Um okay. It's 155-204-1991", I said.

"Great thanks", he said as he left the room.

"So...um...what do you think you're gonna do about the whole "getting kicked out of university" situation?", Dan asked.

"Well, first I'm going to tell my family what happened. Then I'm going to try to get a job", I said.

"Just so you know, you don't need to rush things. You can stay here as long as you need", Dan said.

"Thanks, Dan", I said.

Just then, Phil came running into the room.

"She said yes!", he said excitedly.

"What are you talking about?", I asked.

"Rachel. I asked her out and she said yes!", he said.

"Yeah mate!", Dan said as he gave Phil a high five.

"Guys I think I'm going to go to bed now. I'm kinda tired", I said.

"Okay goodnight", Phil said.

"Goodnight", Dan said as he hugged me.

I went to my room and just sat on my bed. After all that happened today, I couldn't sleep. So I decided to call my parents and tell them the situation.

"Hello?", my mom answered.

"Mom it's me", I said.

"Avery I miss you! How are things going?", said my mom.

"Um actually that's what I'm calling about", I said,

"Why what's wrong?", she asked worriedly.

"We got the day I was supposed to start school wrong. Instead of September 1st, it was actually August 19th", I said.

"Oh no! So what's going to happen now?", she asked.

"Mom they kicked me out of the university", I said.

"Oh I'm so sorry! What are you going to do?", she asked.

"Well I'm going to try to get a job. In the meantime, Dan and Phil are letting me stay here", I said.

"Bless them. I'm sorry we don't have the money to send for you right now", she said.

"That's alright. Call me or your dad if you need anything", she said.

"I will. Thanks mom", I said.

"Of course", she said.

"Mkay mom I should probably go now", I said.

"Okay I love you", she said.

"Love you too. Goodbye", I said.

"Goodbye", she said.

After my conversation with my mom, I still couldn't sleep. So I texted Rachel.

Me: Hey Rachel

Rachel: Omg Avery Phil asked me out!

Me: I heard! :)

Rachel: Please tell me Dan asked you out too

Me: Yeah he did :)

Rachel: Good :) We can go on a double date or something!

Me: Yeah :)

Me:Rachel I'm actually really tired now xD I'm going to go to bed, but we will continue this conversation later :) goodnight x

Rachel: Okay xx goodnight :)

After my conversation with Rachel, I actually was quite tired. So I hung up my phone for the night and I was asleep before my head hit the pillow.
