Don't Even Get Me Started!!
"Take his phone." I said to Riley who was staring down at Nick with an odd expression on her face.
Well not an odd expression to me. I went over and put my arm around her shoulders. "I should have hit him with the fire extinguisher, not you. I'm so sorry." was what I left it at and bent down to retrieve Nick's mobile from his pocket.
"He genuinely looked hurt when he thought that I was lying about my sisterly feelings for you to him." Riley said still looking at him. "And he was a really good kisser."
That stopped me in my tracks. "What?! You made out with him!" She smiled and I laughed. "It's good that he was good." I said on a sigh and checked his phone for messages.
The screen said 6 new messages. I clicked 'read'. 5 were from Alex and one was from a Andy...
The first 4 from Alex were all similar: How's it going? You alright?
Then I clicked on the last message sent from Alex just as Riley said, "I really think he liked me until I did that... Oh well, sis over kiss." Riley quoted one we had come up with together.
'Do whatever it takes to keep her with you. Use your charm if you have to.' Did that mean the kiss???
Oh they were both going to pay.
"I think he liked you too before you hit him on the head. He'd be a fool not to, but battery this early in a relationship often is a buzz kill." Riley wouldn't find out. I wouldn't let her be hurt like that. Especially by a stranger who was a tool!
The next message was the one from Andy. 'I miss you. When can we next meet up??' Ok... So was he gay??? Hmmm... Wouldn't have guessed that...
"Right. Nothing important on the phone but we might as well take it anyway just in case." Ok, I knew it sounded bad and I'd never stolen before but I also hadn't been stalked by people before.
"Right... Let's go get your phone from Alex and head to lunch early!" Riley: always the optimist.
"Yeah!" I smiled and pocketed the phone to make sure Riley couldn't see the texts and I would be talking to Nick to stay away from her... Even if j have to go through Alex to do it.
We walked back to my classroom and when we got to the door I noticed Alex clutching my phone with a look of extreme anger on his face. I turned to look at Riley. "Stay here and I'll be back out in a minute. Then we can go deal with Sam."
I opened the door and Alex's head snapped up to me. He actually looked as if he was quietly snarling at me.
"Sir," I started, deciding to ignore Alex. "I'm not feeling too good so I'm heading to the nurses... I've already been to the toilet and it just isn't going well."
"Very well then, I'll see you next lesson on time." He gave me a pointed look on time as if I would not know he was referring to my tardiness.
"Yes sir." I smiled sweetly to him and went to grab my bag from the seat next to Alex.
As I leaned down next to him to grab my bag, he grabbed my wrist and pulled me so close that his mouth was next to my ear. "Who is Sam, Rose?" He whispered with anger in his tone.
How would he know about Sam??? How could he... My phone!!! I tried to grab my phone out of his hand but he pulled it away from me right before I could grasp it. "You read my private texts!" I hissed at him.
"Yes." that was the sum of his reply to me.
"Sam is none of your business." I said and tried to pull my wrist away.
"Not good enough Rose my dear." His words suggested clam polite conversation... His eyes portrayed death.
"Is he your boyfriend? Are you still with him??" the questions about Sam were annoying me.
"No he's not my boyfriend and why do you even care?? You don't want to be with me!" The last part stung me to say and I realised it was because I was upset about him not wanting me... I wanted him to want me...
I... I... I think I like him. God damn it!!!
"I might not want you but I don't share my stuff with anyone else." he looked me in the eyes. "Ever."
Letting go of my wrist he handed me my phone and turned to talk to the girl at another table who was smiling at him and writing her number on a sheet of paper for him. My fury boiled!
So he was allowed to stalk me, harass me, boss me around, demand I stay away from other lads while he goes and fliers with all the other girls when I've actually fallen for him!!!
Why did I fall for him??? How??? He's been nothing but nasty to me and I still like him, I need my head checking out!!
I shook my head and put all my books into my bag. He's not worth my time he's not worth my time he's not worth my time he's not worth my time. That was what I had to keep repeating to myself and after a while I might actually believe it.
