I didn't go to school the next day, but I did meet the boys after school they told me about all the funny things that had happened in school which made me laugh but also all the horrible things that have been said about me but they cheered me up afterward by giving me a big hug. We soon decided we should go on a walk down the beach to watch the sunset because the weather was at its best and it was beginning to get darker.
Once I had got changed into my blue high waist shorts, white vest and blue flannel we headed to the beach, the sky was a beautiful purple and you could see the suns reflection brighten up the water. The low powered waves rolled onto shore and Michael Ashton and Luke decided to go for a paddle. I was about to join them when I heard Calum quietly call for me, I turned around and he was stood on a sand dune. By the time I had got over to him he had grabbed my hand and led me down the beach far away from the other boys.
"So whats the deal with you and Luke" he asked being very direct.
"Nothing we are just friends" I replied but sounded hesitant.
He raised and eyebrow at me and we carried on walking along the beach until we got to a abandoned part of the bay where we sat down and watched the waves break onto the sand.
"I like you okay!"he exclaimed but I could tell from the slightly broken and shaken voice that he was nervous.
"Like me? How? Why?..."
Half way through my moment of shock he stopped me mid-sentence and kissed me, at first I resisted but I gave in and kissed back.It felt good I had never thought somebody would ever like me like that but then I thought of Luke.
I pulled away and held onto Calum's neck,
"I cant do this"
He replied trying to pull me back into the kiss with;
"Why not? You kissed me back doesn't that mean something"
I pulled his hands away from my neck and placed them onto his lap holding them there.
"It may of meant something to you but not to me I'm sorry, I just don't like you in the same way"
He replied pretty angry saying "Oh, I get it, you have fallen for Luke"
After which I simply shook my head and told him I was going to join the others. I then walked back down the beach to paddle with the other boys.
I felt horrible for having to say that to Calum, but I couldn't lead him on when it wasn't him that I had fallen for and I hated that Calum was right because I knew deep down that Luke could never like me back, could he?
