Remember Me…Your Girlfriend?
I close my locker door and spot Alexis chatting with one of her cheerleader friends. She doesn’t really seem to be into the conversation like she usually is.
I’m surprised that Alexis hasn’t told me anything about her and Matthew’s break up. Come to think of it, Alexis hasn’t been talking to me for about two weeks. Is it because of the break-up? Cause it seems like she’s avoiding me.
Sighing, I make my way to lunch. Is this ever going to change? Will Matthew, Alexis and I keep on walking around each other for the rest of our high school years? It’s a shame things turned out this way.
I haven’t seen Jason since this morning. Guess he’s still a little mad at me from this morning. Because Jason has a reputation, I might have kinda told him that we shouldn’t talk with each other during school.
I know, I know, that’s really unfair towards Jason but I don’t want to be the topic of gossip again just as I was because of Alexis and Matthew.
Why do I always end up hanging around with people like Alexis and Jason. I should just stay around save and normal Luke.
But of course Jason has every right to be pissed at me and it’s not because I’m ashamed to be seen with him, most girls would jump at the chance to be seen with him, I just don’t want that unwanted attention on me again.
At least there is one thing I can look forward to everyday. Luke. When I’m with him, I literally have nothing to worry about because he always lifts my mood and makes me forget the world for a while.
Speaking of Jason and Luke, just as I got out of the cafeteria to go to the lawn where Luke and I sit for lunch, I find Jason sitting at my spot talking to Luke. Is he teasing or threatening Luke? Then why did Luke chuckle just then? I rub my eyes dramatically and check again just to make sure I was seeing right. Nope, Luke and Jason are still getting along.
I’m too far away to make out what they’re saying but I’m guessing their talking about Luke’s Samsung Galaxy Pad that is lying between them on the grass. I’ve been trying to keep them as far away from each other as possible so they won’t be on each others necks and some stupid, little, flat electronically device makes them have a normal conversation? I don’t understand the world anymore or rather I don’t understand boys and their stupid cars or their stupid electronics.
I turn to the sound of the one voice I was hoping not to hear for a while. When was the last time I actually talked to him? Well, the party doesn’t count, since Jason was the one who had commented on my appearance and not him. Matthew’s opinion had been more important to me. Never mind.
“Hey.” I say awkwardly, since we really haven’t talked in a while. I stare at him a little questioningly, wondering what he came here for.
An unwanted thought passed through my head, ‘You’re talking to a single Matthew right now’. I try my best to ignore it.
Matthew caught on to my questioning look. “Let me buy you lunch.” He offered as he eyed my empty hands.
I’m a little surprised, “Don’t worry, that won’t be necessary, I have money but-“
“Please.” Matthew interrupts, looking at me, pleading for understand with his intense gaze.
I want to say no. I want to accuse him of trying to persuade me into doing what he says with that gaze because he knows I can’t resist it. But that was the problem, he wasn’t looking at me like that on purpose. He really seems confused. Most probably because of the break up.
