CHAPTER 2: The Three Friends

452 34 12


I shut my books as I heard the recess bell ring. Putting my books in my bag I walked out of the door.

"Hey Alex," I heard Sharon call out to me. Hearing her voice, I stopped and looked back; I saw her making her way through the crowd. I waited so we could walk out together.

"Hey Sharon, what's up?" I said as I smiled.

"What is going on with you? You know you can trust Me." she comforted me as she threw her arm around my shoulder. I sighed as I looked down at my feet. I really didn't mind telling her, but I doubted weather or not she would believe me.

I decided to tell her anyway, but just before I began I saw Andrea walk towards us. I immediately turned on my heels and started walking the other way. I pulled Sharon along with me.

"Hey Alex!" I heard Andrea's high pitch voice call out to me. 'Great. Just great.' I stopped and turned around and greeted her with a fake smile.

"Hey, I just wanted to tell you that he knows that you're here," she said with a diabolic smile. I know this will not make sense to you, but those words make complete sense to me. On hearing those words I saw my complete world collapse right in front of me.

"How did he come to know?" Those were the only words that managed to come out of my mouth.

"Well, I came to fill out some forms yesterday and that's when I saw you. And since you were such a good friend, I decided to do something nice for you. So I called Justin up and asked him to come." She replied sweetly. At that very moment, I wanted to punch her in her face, but I just felt paralyzed.

"Okay I have to go, I'll catch with you later,: she smiled and walked off.

"What was that about?" Sharon interrupted my thoughts.

"Well, I-" I began, but she cut me off.

"By 'Justin', did she mean 'Justin Bieber' by any chance?" She squealed.

Sharon was a huge fan of Justin Bieber and connected everything to him. But just this one time, she was right. Tears filled my eyes. I just wanted to let my emotions flow out.

"Excuse me." I managed to whisper and walked past Sharon.

"Alex." Sharon called out.

"I'll be fine, just give me 10 minutes," I called out without turning to face her.

After crying for a while in the girls' bathroom, I realized crying and feeling sorry for myself was not the solution to my problem. I knew I couldn't face this alone. I needed someone's help, someone I could trust. Sharon. I walked back to class and took a seat beside her.

"Better?" she questioned. I nodded in response.

" Want to talk about it?" She asked hoping to help me. I took a deep breath.

"Okay, I will tell you, just believe me." I said and she gave me a comforting smile and nodded.

"Okay, remember I told you that I came to this school five years back? And before this I was in some other school in London?" I inquired.

"Yeah." She said.

"I lied to you." I confessed.

"What?" I said alarmed.

"I was born in Stratford, Ontario and after 12 years, we moved here because of my dad's transfer." I sighed.

"Oh my god, so when Andrea said 'Justin' she did mean "Justin Bieber?" Sharon's mouth formed an 'O'.

"Yes. I meant to tell you about this earlier," I looked down at my feet. "In Stratford, Andrea, Justin and I were best friends, we were family friends. We use to share every little secret with each other. We use to do all kinds of things that best friends do," I said not realizing that I was smiling remembering those days.

"You have a bad taste in friends if you claim that Andrea was your friend," Sharon commented.

"Don't interrupt," I rolled my eyes "and just for the record, you're my friend too."

"Sorry, go on." She mumbled. I opened my mouth to continue, but she spoke out again.

"Just one last question. is Justin............Justin BIEBER?" She jumped in her seat.

"Yes, how many times do you want me to say that? now may I please continue?" I asked annoyed.

She didn't say a word then but she was very confused because if Justin and I were friend then why do I pretend to hate Justin Bieber in school?

The teacher walked in. "Great," I rolled my eyes. "I'll tell you later." I whispered to her.
