08 “Can I tell you something?” I asked Faye. Our class is crowded and we’re waiting for our teacher to arrive, and what happen last night is bothering me and I can’t get it out of my mind.“Is there something wrong?” She worriedly asked. “You’re spacing out.”I smile and looks at her. “I think Asher likes me.” I said that only her can hear it.She didn’t say anything and just looks at me. She didn’t look surprise, does she know from the beginning? “It shows. I though you already know but chose not to say anything.” She smiles. “Don’t you like him? He cares for you.”“I think of him as a friend.” I shook my head and play with my fingers. “and you know I already like someone else.” She nodded.The conversation was a bit hanging as our teacher arrive before I could add something to tell.The crowded room become silent and even though our teacher witness the chaos earlier she’s still smiling, like something good is about to happen, and I think I’m not the only one who witness that becaus
09I look away, I don’t want to say anything. Harry is looking at me and I look at him. “Sorry.” Harry said and get his things.“It’s fine.” I said but he didn’t hear that because he already left, not even minding the teasing of our schoolmates.Some notice what happen and immediately stop teasing me. I bit my lips and get my things.“What the heck was that?” Faye asked angrily, she’s with the boys. I didn’t answer her and look at Asher who looks angry, and looking disappointed. I’m disappointed too but I can’t control what will happen, nor does Harry.When we get of the bus some of our schoolmates are still talking about the incident and it’s making me angry and irritated because I though they’re my friends, they’re suppose to have my back but I guess I misunderstood that friendship.“Let’s forget about what happen earlier in the mean time, and enjoy our vacation. We can bad mouth Harry later.” Faye said to lighten up the mood. I nodded as a response.“I booked different for the four
10Earlier when Asher almost confess made my stomach turn, and made me run to the nearest bathroom to puke. It was humiliating as Asher followed me and he even help and hold my hair while I’m puking all the alcohol on my system.I wanted to disappear when I was done but that wasn’t the case because he help me until we get to our room, we found Faye and Blaine on the bed.I took a bath and now I’m lying on the bed perfectly still to avoid getting close to him. He’s wide awake and I can feel it because he’s lying in his back looking at me.I didn’t know how I manage to feel as sleep but good thing when I woke up there were no sign of Asher. That day, we went home early than usual as we have call the next day.“It was so fun, it’s just sad how fast we left.”As expected everyone is talking about the field trip. We didn’t really have class today but today is the first day we’ll practice for our graduation day. I’m actually very thrilled as we’ll most spend out time in the covered court.W
11I hate this. I hate that I have many things to pass even though we’re almost done with school.We’re on our way to the school for our pictorial for our year book and I look like a mess right now as I woke up late and haven’t done my make up yet.I rode a cab here in school because my parents are home and no one can take me home. So here I am in the canteen frustrated while getting my make up out of my bag.“I can as fast as I could.” Faye came running to me and made me sit in the chair. She already has hear base make up but still haven’t finish it.“Claire! Come fast!” Who’s Claire? It’s like Faye heard me because she answers. “Claire is my make up artist and she’s here to help us.I sigh in relief. “I’m glad I have you.” I said as Claire examine my face before tying my hair.“Of course you are.”Claire isn’t alone because Faye is also getting her make up done with someone else. She took a lot of photo while we were getting ready and not long after Blaine and Asher arrive. Good thi
12I woke up in the middle of the night feeling thirsty. I stood up and went to my table only to find that I ran out of water. I always keep water in my room because I don’t want to go down every time I get thirsty.Half-asleep, I go down to our stairs but I stop when I saw a silhouette. I scratch my eyes and look carefully who it was.“Dad?” I whisper but he didn’t hear me nor see me. He look around before carefully sneaking out. My brows creased and walk towards the area he left. I look at outside and saw dad driving away.The next day, I woke up extra early. Mom and dad are in the kitchen laughing and cuddling each other. When did dad got home?I’ve become suspicious of him but I try not to say anything because I’m not sure what is really happening. I didn’t told mom nor Faye about it and just kept it to myself.“Why do you keep spacing out?” Faye ask while we’re eating snacks here in the mall.We’re here to watch a new release movie together with Asher and Blaine. This days I woul
13Harry and I are consonantly seeing each other now. Its him that I talk about my problems between my family as I’m ashamed to say it to Faye and Asher is busy with his girls, and I don’t know if he’ll be available if I call him again.“Here’s our order.” I smile as Harry arrange our food in our table. He knows I like to take a photo of things and that include foods.We’re in a cafe as he just finish a modeling shoot. I like it when he ask me to come with him whether he has a shoot. I enjoy seeing him so passionate about something he likes to do.I thought he’s only good at dancing but he’s a king in modeling. Many would scout him whenever we eat out but he declines as he already has an agency that handles him.“You seriously don’t like acting?” “I just want to dance and model. I’ll be busy with school and I want to focus more on academics.” He answers.After eating our snacks in the near cafe we came back to the studio to finish his shoot. I’m like his assistant and I very much enj
14“Oh my Gosh! I can’t believe you guys hid this from us!” I’m in shock right now. “I know you guys really like each other but how come I didn’t notice that you were officially a couple when we graduated.”I’m now ranting to Faye and Blaine who just revealed that they’re a couple a long time ago. I can’t believe that Faye manage to find it from me, and I can’t believe myself for not noticing this.“Calm down, you were preoccupied with your life that I can’t find a way to tell you.” Faye said.“You guys.” I shook my head while looking at Blaine. “Don’t you dare hurt her or else you will be traumatize for the rest of your life.” I said to Blaine.“That’s too much but don’t worry I’m loyal. I’m not like Asher.” He joke that made me roll my eyes. “Oops. Didn’t mean to say that.” He said and gave me a peace sign.“Shut up, I already have a boyfriend.” I said. “But why is he not around?” I suspiciously ask.“He’s always not around, he become busy with his girlfriends.”“Why is that plural?
15I slept on the sofa; although the bed was big, and even if I slept beside him, we wouldn’t touch, I still chose to sleep on the couch even though my body hurts from my sleeping position.I woke before Asher could wake up. I bit my lips when I saw him topless; last night was a struggle. I try to change his clothes, but when he removes his top, he removes his pants too, and then I won’t come near him. I can’t after he just kissed me; I’m scared he might pull me and kiss me again; I’m not letting that happen, especially since he’s topless.I text Blaine if I can get out, and not even long after, the door opens, revealing Blaine and Faye. “Did you sleep here?” Faye asked. Blaine’s parents just left, so we’re free to go out.“I should be asking that,” I said and raised my brows.“I just got here, but it looks like you spent the night here.” She smirked, and I rolled my eyes.We look at Blaine, who walks towards Asher, but before waking him up, Asher opens his eyes and looks confused abo
