He really likes Lily. It's bloody obvious and it's obvious that she likes him too. But he just got majorly friend zoned. And I don't know how he would be able to take that. His last girlfriend was a total bitch. She broke his heart and then was like to him: "Baby, I'm so sorry I cheated on you I'm a better person, I promise! Please take me back!" And then she broke his heart all over again. It took a long time to fix his opinion on women.
But Lily?! Why? Why would you do that?
I had weaponry class. Everyone gets like a buddy. Well I think they do. Maybe it's only the new people that do but they assess you on what skills you have and I haven't met my buddy yet. What if my buddy is total crap? Or what if i'm total crap? I pulled my hair from the braid I had kept it in overnight. It was nice and curly.
Walking down to my class I bumped into Jack. Even though I was with him last night it felt like i hadn't seen him ages.
"Jackelyn!" I called to him.
"I swear Nezmerelda, you have got to stop calling me that."
"Never! When do you have a free period?" We were standing in front of each other now. I could see his white teeth.
"Yes! There is much to discuss."
"Righty-o, see you then little sister," and he began to walk away.
"I'm ten minutes younger than you!" I shouted after him.
"Ten minutes you won't forget for the rest of your life, small sister,"
"And I'm not bloody small!"
"You're pretty small, you know." Bloody hell that scared me. I walked right into Matt. I almost fell over, but he grabbed my arm and kept me steady. I was pretty small, he was towering over me.
"I'm not that small." I took a step back, but Matt kept on looking me up and down. It was really quite creepy.
"That's your brother right?" He looked at Jack who was now at the very end of the hall.
"Yeah he is."
"Well that's good."
"I'm having a party. Well a friend of mine is, you know Nick right?"
"I think so."
"Well yeah, him, so bring your friends, bring your brother, maybe some booze if you can. It'll be fun."
"Great!" he smiled at me. "So, what are you doing now?" The next smile was a little more sleezy.
"I actually really have to go, I'm late already." I smiled at him and started walking down the corridor.
"Oh come on, Inès, what about we hang out tonight?"
"I'll try, sorry, I really have to go. Bye Matt!"
I arrive late. The teacher glares at me when I walk in. "Sorry sir, I got lost, i'm still new around here you see." I gave him a smile and he forgave me.
"I'm Mr. Head. I'll just be supervising in case anyone gets hurt, which I'm sure won't happen. but this is about you working with your buddy. Your buddy is someone we set our new students up with so they work and learn from each other and get to know how we train at this school."
"Right." I said
"Good. Do you have any questions?"
"Uh, yes, actually, who's my buddy?"
"Ah yes, whoops. Your buddy miss, is Connor." my heart skipped a beat. I don't know why. I'm not really a dramatic person. My heart doesn't normally skip beats when I find out im paired with attractive people for training. But it just did, I felt it.
"Right." I nodded. Stay calm Inès. Keep it together. Composure. Composure.
"He's running late too actually." Mr. Head looked down at the watch on his wrist. He was getting a bit flustered. "I'm sure he will be here any minute."
Right on cue, in runs Connor, shirtless and sweaty in track pants his hair flying everywhere with one headphone in. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow.
"Sorry, I went for a run while I was waiting, and I must have lost track of the time."
I felt so extremely awkward standing there staring at him. i couldn't stop bloody staring. He looked so good. I sound like a silly schoolgirl right now.
"Mr. Taylor, thanks for joining." Mr. Head said. "This is your buddy, Inès." He looked at me, his eyes widening. I think it was only now he properly realised why I was here. He grabbed his shirt from the floor and pulled it on. "Right. I'm sure you two can work this out. I'm getting a coffee."
We stared at each other before Connor pulled himself together. "Sorry, I, um, wasn't really thinking."
"No, no, its fine." I turned away so he wouldn't see my blush. My heart was beating so fast I thought it might break out of my chest and run away. What the hell was going on? This wasn't me. I'm not someone who freaks out around attractive guys. Bloody hell Inès. Pull yourself together.
"So, what do you like best?" Connor asked me, bringing me away from my thoughts.
