24. Chapter 23
*a month and 1/2 later*
My biology partner sighs. "What's wrong? Did I mess it up?" I ask him. "No,no. It's something else." Xavier tells me. He's as tall as Luke,which is tall,really smart,has blue-grey eyes,and also wears black glasses like me. "What is it?" I say. He looks down at me. "Well," he pauses. "Nevermind. It's just a family problem." "O-okay." I say. Lighting cracks and thunder booms outside. We work on the project some more. The bell rings and I pick up my binder and my part of the project. "Hey,Emily?" Xavier asks,before Ashton walks up. "Yeah?" I say,my back towards him,since he's behind me. I turn to face him,but he's not there. Neither is Ashton. I laugh it off,but nervously. I grab my phone and go to my locker.
After school,I head upstairs and do my homework. Michael knocks on my open door and I look at him. He walks in and sits on my bed. "What's up?" I ask. "Lookey here." He hold us an envelope. He hands it to me and I open it. It's from Xavier. It's asking me to prom. I smile but it immediately fades when Ashton knocks on my balcony door. Michael turns around to see Ashton. The storm had stopped during PE. But anyway,I hide the letter in my notebook and let Ash inside. "Hey." He says. "Hi." "What were you reading?" Ash asks. "Oh,just a letter from my friend Kylie." I lie. "Okay,let's go walking for awhile."
