26. Chapter 25
I walk into biology class with my part of the project and Xavier isn't there. 'He's never sick.' I say in my head. I sit down and begin tweaking my part of the project. I look over to the door and Xavier walks in. But it's not him. But it's Xavier. Confusing,I know. He's wearing a black beanie,a Nirvana teeshirt,black skinny jeans,and black vans. "Xavier?" I whisper. He sets his project down. "Hey." He says. "Hi,so I'm down for prom with you. Maybe we could ta-" he cuts me off. "I'm going to prom with someone else." I tilt my head. "What?" "I'm going to prom with someone else." "Oh." We get started on the project and the bell rings. I do most of it and he only does things when I ask him. When the bell rings again,we get up. Our project is finished. I put it on the counter and grab my stuff. I walk past Ashton and open my locker. I've avoided him all day,besides lunch. I walk to the gym and a classmate walks up to me. "Hey." He says. "Hi." I reply. "I'm Lawrence. You can call me Law." I nod. "I'm Emily." We talk for awhile and then class begins.
I sigh and wipe off my makeup. My clock reads 12:36 am. I take out my contacts and push on my glasses. I turn and see a notification on my phone. A Twitter one. I open it and it comes to Allison's latest tweet. 'Sometimes I feel my friends aren't telling me things,you feel?' I sigh. I text her.
Me: I'm srry. Ash and I broke up bc I was gnna go to prom with Xavier
Me: Yupo and Xav bailed on me.
Me: you going w/ Mikey?
Me: I'm tired. Let's hang tomorrow
I put my phone on its charger and go to bed.
I get up and do my daily routine. I put on a kiwi crop top and denim shorts with white sandals. I put my hair in a messy bun and eat breakfast. I walk outside and Allison walks up to me. We go around the neighborhood being weirdos and whatnot. We hang out at the park for awhile and just talk. And talk. And talk.
