2. Chapter 2

I grab my algebra book out of my locker and two hands cover my eyes. "Guess who," Nialls voice says. A smile creeps up on my face. "Hi Niall," I say. He takes his hands off my eyes and hugs me. "I've missed you," he says. My heart skips a beat. But why? I don't have feelings for him. Do I?

"It was only the weekend," I respond. "Exactly," he says. My phone buzzes and I pull it out if my pocket. New text message from Trevor. Trevor is my brothers friend. Not only do I hate Trevor, but he's 14 and he is always bothering me. "Who's that? Your boyfriend?" Niall asks looking over my shoulder. I shake my head in disgust. 

"I have English," I say. "Me too," Niall says. We walk into the English room and we see people making out and bothering other people. The only normal people in the room were the two boys doing homework. I turn and find Niall sitting at a table gesturing for me to sit next to him. I walk over and pull out the chair. I was about to sit down when a blonde ggirls its in my seat. "Oh hey Niall," he says. She looks back at me. "Oh sorry. Were you going to sit here?" She asks with a bit of annoyance in her voice. "N-" I begin but Niall interrupts me and says "Yea. She was." She gets up and sits in another spot across the room and begins kissing some boy. "Thanks," I say. Niall nods and pulls out his phone. 

"Class, we are starting a new project in here. You will be assigned a partner and given a topic. You will pick a book off of the list I give you and then read it. Write a report on how the topic relates to the book and you have to make a diagram of the topic and how it's used in the novel,"  she hands out a piece of paper to every student then begins listing off the names of partners. "Niall, you're with Payton and Harry," I look at Niall he he smiles at me. 

"Hey! Payton right?" A boy with curly hair asks. I nod. "Im Harry. Your partner for the project," he adds. "Oh, right!" I say acting excited. Even though I was not looking forward to this project at all. 


Ive only been here a month and the only friend I have is Niall. He tries to get me to eat with him at lunch but I just stay in the Library. But today I agreed. We met up at my locker and walked to the cafeteria together. "You get to meet my friends!" He exclaims excitedly. As we near the cafeteria I see what looks like a hundred people. It's wicked loud in there. So much different from the library.

Niall makes his way over to a table with 4 boys sitting around it. "Hey boys," Niall says. Everyone just stares at me. "Ummm, Niall? Who's your friend?" A boy with black hair asks. "Oh. Sorry. This is Payton. Payton, this is Zayn, Liam, Louis, and you already know Harry," Niall says. Me and Harry just met today so I don't actually know him. 

I sit next to Niall and begin to eat lunch. "So Payton, how are you?" Louis asks. "Great," I lie. "Aww what's wrong?" The boy named Liam asks. "Nothing," I answer. Another lie. "Niall, we should work on the project at my house tonight," Harry says. He looks over at me. "You okay with that?" Niall asks. I nod. "Okay. Great, I'll give you a ride over there tonight," Niall says. 

My phone buzzes and I pull it out. My mom texted me. 'Hey Princess. I am going on a business trip. Wont be home when u get back. I am leaving in an hour and won't be home for 2 weeks. Love you.' I checked when the message was from. One hour ago. 

The bbell rings and I find Niall talking to Harry in the parking lot. "Oh hey Payton," Harry says. "Hey," I say. "What are you still doing here?" Niall asks me. "I have to walk. My dad and mom left for a business trip  this morning," I reply. "Do you need a ride?" He asks. "Do you mind?" I ask. "Not at all. Lets go," he says and gestures toward his car. 

"Do you understand that Algebra homework?" Niall asks while we drive. "Um yeah. Why?" I ask. "Can you help me on it?" He asks. "Yeah. Of course," I say. "Thanks, you can come to my place and help me if you want," he says. "Okay," I say. 

We pull up in his driveway and he leads me to his room. He sits on his bed and pays the spot next to him gesturing for me to sit there. I sit down. "Where's that algebra homework?" I ask. "Oh, I understand that perfectly. I just knew I was gonna be bored waiting uuntil we go to Harry's tonight," I playfully slap him on the arm. He laughs and hits me back. We hit eachother for about another 5 minutes when his phone starts ringing. He sighs and looks at it. His face turns white. "I gotta take this," he says and gets up. "Hello?" He asks and closes his bedroom door behind him. I pull out my phone and begin texting my brother. I tell him where I am and that's i probably won't be home until late. 

Niall comes back in the room and sits down beside me again. "Sorry. It was an old friend," He says. "Oh. It's fine," I reply. He looks over my shoulder and at my phone. "Who's this?" He asks.  "My brother, Luke," I answer. I look over at him and he staring at me. I can't hhelp but get lost in his eyes. I don't even realize I lam looking at him until there is a knock at the door. Niall says "it's open," and the doorknob turns revealing Harry.
