The next day at school, as I was passing the office to go to my table I saw Mason coming out of the office. He looked really horrible. Blake wasn't kidding.
He saw me and limped over to me. He looked mad or I thought he did I couldn't really tell with his bruised face. He said "I'm sorry for what I said to you the other day. Your boyfriend really cares for you." He walked away but I caught up with him. I mean he was walking slow already.
I said "Gabe isn't my boyfriend." He said "Well what he said about you made it seem like he was. If he isn't then he must like you." I stopped following him because he walked into the boys bathroom.
I went to my table where my friends were and sat down. I looked around for Gabe but he wasn't there. And then I felt hands over me eyes. The person said "Guess who." It was obvious who the person was, I could tell by their voice.
"You're Blake." I laughed. He said "Correct smart girl." He sat down next to me and I leaned my head on his shoulder. He said "Are you ready for the school field trip?" Each year we take a school field trip to this camp where we stay over for two nights.
"Yeah I am. Wanna sit with me on the bus?" "I can't my homeroom said I need to sit with our class." He nodded. The bell rang and we went to class. When I walked into homeroom I saw Gabe sitting at our table.
I plopped my bag on my chair and put my hand on the desk and leaned towards him. He looked confused. I said "Gabe don't lie to me, be honest. Did you do something to Mason after the Brin incident?" He looked down and said "Uhh..." "Don't lie to me." He nodded embarrassed.
I sat down and held his wrist with his hurt hand. "And you got this from punching him?" He nodded still not looking at me. I felt bad with the way he looked. He looked really sorry. "Gabe look at me." He still looked down at his lap so I took his chin in my hand and made him look at me.
"Why'd you do it Gabe?" "Because of what he said about you Cara. You're not worthless. You're funny, pretty, cute, smart and you have a beautiful smile. Everyone likes you. You have a great personality. Cara you are a great girl." I blushed at what he said.
I realized my hand was still holding his head up and I took it down. "Well Gabe please don't do it again. Are you really okay?" He looked at his hand and nodded "It was worth it for you." The bell rang and he got up and left first this time.
I replayed what he said about me in my head. I kept smiling at what he said. The way he looked at me when he said it, I felt so much feeling from him. He cares about me. But Cara remember he likes Lana.
