CHAPTER 4:

(Matt's POV)

"Fine." she says rather reluctantly.

I pull her over to a set of lockers and turn around to face her. My heart is beating out of my chest; Just as it has been since she walked into Geometry this morning. I can't believe the odds of this happening. I mean, I knew she was moving to Virginia, but I had never expected it to be Woodbridge.

I couldn't help but notice all the attention she got from boys today. She seemed to not even notice. Her and her older sister are the only thing my friends talked about at lunch today. Most of their comments had been crude and mentioning how nice her ass was. I mean yea, it's hella nice..

Matt cut it out. Remember how she was all over Jack? And she rejected you for no good reason?

Right. An angry facade falls over me as she stares at me expectantly.

"Well..?" she asks impatiently.

"What are you doing here?" It comes out much more harsh than I was expecting. She backs up a bit at my tone.

"Whoa calm down bud. My dad's work moved him here. Trust me, if I had known you were here, I would've demanded we move somewhere else." she rolls her eyes.

Ouch. Despite my anger towards her, I still find her to be completely gorgeous. Hearing her say stuff like this stings.

"Well then.." I say, masking my hurt. I don't want her to know that her words have an affect on me.

"Is this conversation almost done? My sister is waiting for me outside." she states.

"Yea I'm sorry I wasted your time." I say bitterly. A look passes over her face but then almost instantly disappears again.

"I'll see you around Matt." she sighs and turns towards the parking lot.

"Ellie wait.." she whirls around with a hopeful look in her eyes.

"It.. It's great seeing you again.." I mutter. Her beautiful smile reveals itself to me for the first time today.

"See ya around Espinosa." she says before walking away.

I'm left standing there, contemplating what just happened. How did we just go from sarcastic digs, to smiles within a matter of seconds?

She will be the death of me.

(Ellie's POV)

I quickly slip into Trinity's car and slam the door.

"Whoa what's up with you?" she asks as we pull out.

"You remember how I told you about my mix up with Matt Espinosa in Chicago?"

"Lemme guess, you had a bunch of classes with him today?" she asks.

"How did you know that?!"

"Delaney called me and told me. She told me not to tell you."

"I'm gonna kill her.." I mumble.

"Lovely thing to say about a friend who just got out of the hospital, after nearly dying."

I turn bright red as I realize that she heard me. "That's not how I meant it.." I say carefully.

"I know. I'm just messing with you. How was your first day, besides the Matt situation?"

"Really good actually. I think I found a friend group. There were a few cute guys too."

"Oh trust me, I know. I got hit on a bunch today. And I got invited to a party this friday."

"Why am I not surprised?" I laugh.
