11. -11- Lily?


Calum's sister's car pulls up,for Calum,Luke,and Michael. My eyes fill with with tears for no reason. As Calum walks toward me,I run to him and hug him tightly. 

"Calum?" I sob.

"Yeah?" He asks.

But I don't get to ask him my question. Mali-Koa honks the car horn and Calum pulls away before running to the car.  


Calum,Luke,Michael, and I race to my house to help pack things. We laugh and we pass Aerianna walking,who laughs as her hair blows in the wind. Chelsea grabs her bookbag and purse out of her car in the driveway. My dad shows me and the guys the keys to the truck. 

"Hang on to the handles,and be careful." He warns us as we climb onto the back. We hang onto the handles and shoot our feet back and they touch the locked door keeping everything in.     


"WHOO!" Michael yells over the wind,making us all laugh. 

"Yeah!" I yell as well and the truck slows down as we pull into Dad's neighborhood. He then pulls into the driveway of the house and Ashton's standing there waiting. The truck stops and turns off and we jump off the back. 

"Cool ride." Ashton says before giggling.  

I throw one of my arms around one of Cal's shoulders and the other around Ashton's shoulder. Michael puts his arm on Luke's shoulder and his other arm on Ashton's head. We're silent for a few seconds. I look at each of them,smiling. "We shall stick together throughout our days." I declare and we all laugh.


Lily throws the softball at me and I catch it in my glove. I throw it back and we go back and forth. Lily catches it,but doesn't throw it back. She drops it and takes off her glove,dropping it too. 

"Lil,what's wrong?" I ask and she looks at me like I'm the craziest person ever.

"Kayla,who am I to you?" She asks and I give her the look she just gave me.

"My best friend. Lily,why wouldn't you be that to me?" I ask.

We both start walking towards each other,meeting in the middle of my new backyard. 

"Kayla,we haven't hung out in ages before this." 

"What are you talking about? We are on the same softball team. I'm pitcher. You're catcher." 

"Besides that,Kayla," She says,laughing,at the end,a laugh that doesn't sound like anything but air. "I've sat alone at lunch for the past week and a half because I don't wanna be embarrassed in front of those guys. Especially Michael." 

"You should've told me,Lily." I soften.

She shakes her head. "Don't you get it? Kayla,we've been best friends since preschool. We're fading because of Michael. Because of Luke. Because of Ashton. Because of Calum." She tells me.  

"So are you saying you like Calum now?" 

"No! Heck no!" Lily pushes her hair out of her face. "Kayla,ever since Calum came into your life,you've been ditching me." She continues.

"I-What are you saying?" 

"For instance,two games ago. You hit the winning run. We won. Your dad took your mom,your siblings,you,and the guys out to pizza. He's known me for ages. He's known me as long as I've known you. I know he meant for me to go,but I wanted to to invite me. You didn't. You hung out with the guys." She tells me. 


"No. It's bothering me that you don't give a care in the world about me." 

There's a moment of silence. 

"Can't you just be happy for me every once in awhile? I've finally found someone who isn't gonna hurt my heart and you wanna think about you? Everything has gone your way,Lily! Why can't it go Kayla? Ever? You are just a selfish person,aren't you?" I ask. 

She gasps. "Me? Selfish? You basically bragged for a week after you got the pitcher spot. You cried a billion times after your mom died so you'd get all the attention. You cried for three days after Brent cheated on you. You bragged in my face after Brent even got together with you! But you forgot my feelings! I never have had a boyfriend before! Never! So stop being an asshole and saying that I'm the selfish one here!" She yells and I can't tell tears gathered in her eyes. And they gather in my eyes. "Oh,and by the way? I'm quitting softball!" She yells and her eyes shift to the door behind me. I turn and find all my siblings standing there. They all disperse.
