~Chapter Twenty Two.~
I freeze at my locker when I hear his voice and don't respond, hoping I'll turn invisible.
"What are you doing here?" I ask Zack in a low voice.
I feel him messing with the hoodie I have on today. "I just wanted to see how you're doing today, that's all."
I narrow my eyes at my locker, still not turning around so I won't have to see his face. "Are you sure that's all you're here for? And don't touch me!"
He chuckles at me and he takes his hands off of my hoodie. "Yes, that's all. Don't you trust me?"
I roll my eyes and push my glasses up. "No, of course I don't trust you." I take my English book out of my locker and turn around, coming face to face with Zack.
I gasp at how close we are, and he smiles at me and kisses my forehead then takes a step back away from me. "Well, we should change that."
I blink, surprised that he did that, and clear my throat. "Why can't you just stay away from me?" I ask him quietly as I wipe his disgusting spit off of my forehead with the back of my hand.
He shrugs. "I want to be your friend." He smiles, but there's just something wrong with how he said that.
I frown at him and raise my eyebrows. "Okay, last night, you told me you wanted to be more then friends...and today, you're saying that you want to be my friend..."
His eyes widen slightly and his face becomes flustered for a split second. "I...I um.."
I cross my arms over my chest, waiting for his explanation.
"Hey, Soppie!" I look over to my right and see Gabe walking over to me quickly. "What's he doing here?" He nods his head over to Zack and smirks, probably thinking that Zack is asking me out on another date.
I step closer to Gabe, and Gabe swings his arm around my shoulders. "Zack, was just telling me why last night he wanted to be my boyfriend, and why now, he just wants to be my friend."
Gabe frowns and nods then looks at Zack. "Tell away, Man."
I can tell that Zack has shrinked down a little since Gabe has come over. "Uh, Gabe, can you give Sophie and I some privacy for a little bit."
Gabe shakes his head and tightens his arm around me. "No way. What you can say in front of Sophie, you can say in front of me." Gabe looks at me. "Right, Soppie?"
I look up at him and smiles. "That's right." I love having Gabe as my best friend! I look back at Zack and raises my eyebrows when he gulps.
I can't tell her that I don't like her anymore, because then she'll never like me. And I definitely can't tell her about the bet...especially with Gabe here.
I messed up.
"I just..decided that I won't force you into a relationship since you don't want to be my girlfriend." I smile proudly at myself. "I want to be your friend."
I let out a breath of relief.
Sophie still doesn't look convinced about what I said. "I don't want to be your girlfriend, and I don't want to be your friend. Like I said before, I don't trust you."
She's too smart. "Please, just give me a-" The bell rings interrupting me, and I sigh.
She smiles happily. "I really did have pretty good time last night, but I just don't like or trust you. Now, you told me that if I didn't like you after the date, you would leave me alone. Please stay to your word for the first time in your life." She hugs her book to her chest. "I've got to get to class. I'm already late, thanks to you. Bye, Zack. Have a great life."
Gabe and Sophie start walking past me, and Gabe bumps my shoulder with his shoulder, giving me a warning to back off and leave her alone.
I run my hand through my hair.
I only have a week and five days left.
I'm skipping school today.
I walk down the empty hallway to my locker and open my locker door.
"Why aren't you in class, Baby?" I hear a whiny voice behind me say.
I wince at her voice and sigh.
This is just my day.
"What do you want, Brittney?" I ask while getting my skateboard out of my locker.
She runs her nails up and down my arms. "I miss you." She says pouting.
I take her hand off of my arm and turn around. "I thought I broke up with you."
She steps closer to me and her pout grows. "I thought that was only until you got little miss nerd to be your girlfriend."
I flick my hair out of my eyes and step around her. "No, I broke up with you 'cause you're too clingy and whiny. You're a brat."
She gets tears in her eyes and stomps her foot. "No, I'm not! How dare you say that about me!" She yells, her voice echoing in the hallway.
I smirk. "Sorry, Babe, but it's true." I drop my skateboard on the floor and salutes her. "See ya!" I take off on my skateboard down the hallway and chuckles when I hear her crying like the brat she is behind me.
I hope that works to get rid of her. I've been trying to get rid of her for the past couple months. She just won't take a hint.
I skate out of the school and down the ramp and skate until I get to my car and take my keys out of my pocket.I pop my trunk and throw my skateboard into it then shut my trunk and hop into the drivers seat.
I lean my forehead against the steering wheel.
I'm so messed up, it's not even funny.
I clench my jaw and lean back and start the ignition.
It's time to go to the one place where I can go when I'm upset...
My brothers grave.
