She pulled up in the school driveway. "Thanks for not driving me to death"
"My pleasure sweetheart" she said and we both smiled.
"You promised to update me about how your job went remember?" she said as we unbuckle the seatbelt and get ready to go out of the car.
"oh yeah...that, well, the job was good, it's okay but you won't believe whose house I'm working at, "
"Who?" she asked
"Kendall" I said
"Kendall , Kendall, Kendall, who's Kendall?" she asked.
Just then I saw Kendall and Natalie making out in front of Kendall's car. Ew, after one full night, this again? Don't they ever get tired?
Catherine asked the question again bringing me out of my thought.
Then I looked at her and then in the direction of Natalie and Kendall
"That's Natalie" she said
"And... That is Kendall?" she asked again more like a question which I nodded to.
Then she gasped again putting the pieces together
"You're working at the she-devil's hot boyfriend house?"
"The Sexy He-Devil" she spelt out
i'm sick of hearing Natalie yell at the poor girl. She is just some months older than Melody.
I watched as Melody went out of Natalie's room. When I was sure she was out, "Easy dear, you are scaring the shit out of the innocent girl" I told her
"Aww" she cooed tracing my neck with her fingers "My baby is going soft" she said as she placed a kiss on my neck.
I hated the way she treats Melody. Even though I do the same to her, I only wanted her to be strong, to be able to face anyone, to stand up for herself but instead, she hides away from everyone in fear.
Instead of responding to the kisses Natalie was giving me, I moved away from her.
"I'll start getting dressed for school, better be ready in 15 minutes else, I'm leaving you behind" I said moving towards the bathroom then I heard her mutter something before opening the door to go downstairs. I shook my head and entered the bathroom.
After about 20 minutes, we were out of the house. Due to the fact that Natalie wanted to cake her face which I actually didn't let her finish though.
That's one of the things I like about Melody. She doesn't make up yet she always looks stunning.
'Arghh, I'm comparing Melody to Natalie again'
This happens everytime I see a girl. I always compare them to Melody.
Then I saw Melody on the road talking to a girl about her age in front of a car. Then, I saw that it was Catherine. I breath out in relief and sped up.
I'm not going to deny this but, I think I have feelings for this girl but... but she hates me and it's all my fault. I'm an idiot.
I was only trying to help her, to make her strong and bold but she thinks I hate her and the worst part, I'm dating her cousin who makes life hell for her.
Well, not actually because I love Natalie, I actually hate Natalie but I wanted to always see Melody. So, I started hanging out with Natalie to see Melody.
I glanced over at Natalie and she was continuing the make-up I didn't allow her to finish at home.
I pulled up in the school driveway and came out.
She came out also. "I want to see Josh before class starts so, I'm leaving" I said and made an attempt to leave
Then, she grabbed my hand, "No goodbye kiss?" she pouts
"Ok" I wanted to kiss her cheek but she turned her lips.
Then the peck turned into a kiss. She deepens the kiss tangling my hair with her fingers while I put one of my hand on her waist and one on her neck.
Just then I notice pairs of eyes looking in our direction. I brush it off cos I've gotten used to people watching me
Then I decided to glance at the direction the pairs of eyes are coming from
Melody and Catherine are looking at us. Melody with a disgusted look and Catherine, a disappointed and fake surprise look.
I quickly cut the kiss but Natalie grabbed my cheek again to continue the kiss. Just then Josh came.
"Oh my goodness Ken, I was waiting for you and you're here making out" he said with a tone of disgust
'Josh you're a life saver' I thought to myself
"Sorry Nat, you had him all night, i'm having him all day" he said as he grabbed my wrist
Josh and Natalie don't really get along well but they pretend to whenever I'm around
Natalie eyed Josh and groaned before leaving.
The first period was boring. Catherine was having a different class but thankfully neither Kendall nor Natalie is in my first period.
Just then, a bag dropped beside me making me look at the person because nobody ever sits with me.
I tried not to open my mouth at the person. It was Josh, Kendall's bestie. The Number Two Bad Boy. He plays girls than the bad boy himself.
He sat down beside me and everyone stared at us especially the girls. They gave me mean looks.
"Hi" he said as he waves
"Hi" I replied trying to seem unaffected. Like I said earlier, in the past few years, I've learnt to hide my feelings.
"You know, you're the first girl who didn't fangirl about me" he said with a smile.
"Sorry?" I said, now with confidence.
"That's what I'm saying other girls would have..." he was cut short by the sound of a hand being banged on the table, courtesy of miss Alice.
"Josh, Melody, this is your last warning. If I catch you guys talking again, detention" she threatened.
I quickly mouthed a sorry. I've never gotten a detention before and I don't ever want to.
She faced the board and started writing some stuffs on the board
Then, Josh faced me again "So, you're Melody, Hmmm, I love that name" he said smirking
"Seriously, that's your pick-up line" I smiled "You know what, I've never gotten a detention before and I don't ever want to" I said to him
"Josh and Melody, detention after school" Miss Alice barked
Great, freaking great
"I think you just did cupcake" he smirked and started writing what miss Alice wrote on the board.
"Newsflash you caused it and secondly, I'm Melody not cupcake and if you smirk again, I'm gonna smack the smirk out of your face. Also, After detention, I hope I don't see your face again" I said and continued writing
"Feisty much" he pouted, "No problem cupcake, I love feisty girls, they are always good in... " knowing what he wanted to say, I cut him short
"Save me the details playboy. I don't wanna get suspension because of you" I said
"Be careful what you wish for cupcake, cos it looks like you always get what you don't want, just like you didn't want detention but you had it and trust me after detention, you will be begging to see me" he smiled and continued writing.
I gave him a dirty look and continued writing.
After lots of explanation and assignments, the bell rang and the teacher went out.
I quickly packed my bag cos I'm having the next class with Catherine and I don't wanna keep her waiting.
I grabbed my bag and stood up "You know what playboy? I hate you" I said and started walking away
"Nice meeting you too" he called over my shoulder
"What?" Catherine shouted and received a warning glare from our physics teacher
I mouthed a sorry and Catherine repeated the word again but now in a whisper "What?, you got detention because of him?!" she whispered again eyeing the two guys in front of us that is, Kendall and Josh.
"Look Cat, I don't want any trouble, Kendall is capable of doing anything and if you keep eyeing him like that then... I'm gonna be in big trouble with him and my cousin" I said trying to calm her down
"Chill girlfriend, but first, Kendall isn't capable of doing anything, he's human and also a student like us so, what harm can he do, when you show him you're weak, he's going to feed on your weakness so even if you're weak at least pretend to be strong and you'll see how he'll treat you. Secondly, who's your cousin?" she asked
Oops! Natalie told me not to disclose my relationship with her to anybody
What the hell will I tell Catherine.
"Um... Um" I stuttered speechlesslyNoticing my inconvenience, she speak up "Anyways that's a talk for another day but first, sorry but I have to do this" she said and before I could say do what, I heard her voice again"Hey, Alex" that's my naughty friend talking to my teacher and she called him Alex, she'll never get away with that without a detentionWait, detention, she's trying to get a detention because I did, As sweet as that sounds, it's equally crazy"I'm sick of writing shitty formulae" My crazy friend blurted out crazily"Yeah, we're done writing stupid formulae now will you get the FUCK out of the class" said a thick voiceThat definitely wasn't Catherine's voice. I looked up and saw that it was KendallI gave Josh a questioning look but he gave me an I also don't understand what is going on lookTo cut the
"Why would you.. " he asked but I wasn't listening anymore. I snatched his phone from Aunt Gracy but was met with passwordI wanted to hand it over to him to press his password but he beat me to it by telling me"The password is kejogmet""okay" I said pressing the password and it unlocked though in my mind, I was surprised. I can remember overhearing NataliesN conversation with Jeanette and Eleanor when Natalie complained Kendall wont tell her his phone's password.But the thought of getting back my phone and killing that jack-ass head clouded the other thought."I saved his name with bff" Kendall saidI was surprised that he was allowing me to press his phone"I'm gonna go get a juice in the fridge" Aunt Gracy said and left for the kitchenJosh number ringed thrice before he picked up. Loud music can be heard in the backgrou
I dragged my weary body to the door stop and I knocked on the door.I knocked again, then I heard my aunt's voice"I'm coming" she said "Natalie is that you?" she said as her footsteps became close and I readied myself for anything. No, I readied myself for everythingShe opened the door and gestured me to come in. I was not shocked cos I know my aunt too well.She didn't want the neighbors to interfere so she didn't attack me at the entrance.I'm dead. I know it."Aunt Natasha, I.."The next thing I received was a slap and everything became blur"You bitch...you're just the same as your mother... You're a bastard" she said throwing anything she sees around her at me.I winced at the pain but she continued not caring."You ungratedul soul..."That was when the real
"Why are you here?" I asked feeling uncomfortable that he's seeing me in a tank top and a short that barely covers my thighHe stares at my dressing for a moment ''Crazy pervert" I thought.Then he looked at my face and said "Can I come in first? " Then I nodded and left the door for him to come in.He entered and locked the door behind him. ."What...what are you... D.. Doing?" I asked stepping backward"Easy princess, we're going out and I don't want anyone to barge in and find only the bed. My mom would be curious if she finds out we left the house" he saidI folded my arm and replied "Why would you think I want to go out with you... In the middle of the night at that""You See Mel..." he started"Melody... It's Melody to you". I told him"OK Melody,
I woke up on something like a rock and my head hurts like shit.Has my bed turned into a rock? I wonderedI felt the morning sunlight hit my face directly. 'What happened to the roof' I wondered againI opened my eyes to be met with the sky then I screamed.Just then I heard ruffling behind me. "What the hell Mel?" The familiar voice said before the owner of the voice came to my view.I huffed a sigh of relief "What happened yesterday?" I asked."Well, it doesn't matter, now if u do not want to be late for school nerdy, I advice you stand up right away" He said with no expression."Right... School... School...Wait a sec, did you just call me nerdy" I asked."Yes" He said less concerned."That hurts duffer" I said feigning hurt."Don't care... And by the way, forget wha
The moment we alighted from the car, we were like magnet attracting some kind of eye force. All eyes were on us or maybe I'm exaggerating."So far, so good Geek Queen, get ready, some nice show's heading your way" he said and I followed his eyesight. Then I saw Jeanette and Eleanor coming our way."Hi handsome" Jeanette said winking at Josh while Eleanor shot me a death glare."Jeanette" he said smirking."You up for a coffee later?" She asked trying to pose in a sexy way.Oh my eyes, so shameless. I was planning to leave until I heard my name."Right, Mel?" Josh asked."Yeah, I'm sorry...what?" I asked since I didn't hear what he asked."We were going shopping after school, weren't we?" He asked."Oh, were we?" I raised an eyebrow. "Damn, yeah we were" I said Smiling awkwardly. "I guess?""Whatever, you
Kendall's POVAfter I left the house, I went straight to Natalie's. She was really going to pay for making Melody homeless."Hey, baby" she tried to say in her most sexiest and tiniest voice, trying to wrap her hands around my neck."What's wrong?" She said when she saw my reaction."Nothing, you're just getting too clingy" I said with no emotion."Whatever" she said brushing it away."Let me get ready so you can drive me to school". She wanted to go to her room when I held her back."Whatever you think is between us, it's ending now" I said looking straight into her face."Is this some kind of joke?" She asked."No, i just don't find you interesting anymore." I said and she slapped me."You...son of a bitch" she said."That's what I just came here to tell you and find your way to school. You
When we got home, Grandma Gracy was really happy we came home together."Oh My two good little cutie couples" She squeaked"Oh Aunt Gracy, please" Kendall said already going upstairs"Silly boy" she looked at him until he was out of sight."So tell me Melody, how was your first date" she question, wiggling her eyebrowI sat down, exhausted."It wasn't a date grandma and a date between I and Kendall will never happen, we went out with one of my friend and Josh" I said."Then that's a double-date" she smiled clapping in excitement."GG, you're not seriously teaching me this, are you?" I questioned jokingly."It's not like you don't know it before and where are your glasses?" She asked"My friends thought it's useless and decided I start using lenses" I said pointing to my eyes."Awwn...No wonder Kenda
