Chapter 4

Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?

My familiar alarm rung filling the room with a soothing sound.

I let it play for just a bit more then I got up and shut it off.

5:30. Enough time to get ready.

Unknown Number: I'll be over at 7:00, be ready :)

Me: Who is this? Sorry.

Unknown Number: Oh sorry it's Tony btw

Me: Oh! Alright I'll be ready (:

Unknown Number: Great, see you then.

I added his number into my contacts and went into the shower. I took a quick shower and blow dried my hair. I went into my room and looked through my clothes. I decided on wearing my v neck long sleeve shirt and some black shorts. 6:45. I quickly ran downstairs and poured myself a bowl of cereal. I felt like a lunatic for running around so much. I hurried upstairs and brushed my teeth.

My phone rang and I picked up. "Hey Tony!" I tried to say casually.

"Hey! I'm outside. Do you need more time or..?"

"No, no. I'll be right out."

"Alright." I could imagine him grin.

I shoved my phone into my pocket and grabbed my keys. I flung my book bag over my shoulder and scurried downstairs. I locked the door behind me.

"Hey." I smiled.

"Hey." He reached for a hug and I embraced him.

"Let's go." He nodded and we started walking.

"You look really nice today." He genuinely smiled.

"Thanks." He's lying to you. I forced a smile out. Maybe she's right..

"Get out of my way Melon!" He nudged me aside. I recognized the voice right away. Hayes. But..?

"Dude what's your problem?" Tony snapped.

Hayes scoffed and walked off. I felt the rim of my eyes get watery. I couldn't believe it. This is not what he promised yesterday. Yet again he said he couldn't promise he was gonna change. Who was I kidding?

"Hey, you okay?" Tony broke me away from my little bubble.

"Uh yeah! I'm just super tired." I faked a yawn and wiped my eyes.

"Alright." He flashed a sympathetic smile.

We walked into school together and our little group talked in the hall for a few minutes until it was time to go. I readjusted the strap to my bag and headed to my first class. English. I stepped into the class and remembered something. I sit next to Hayes. Crap!

I took a deep breath and headed towards the back. He still wasn't in the classroom yet. I turned to the clock and there was still five minutes until class started. I leaned back into my chair and looked out the window. I noticed the bike rack was by here so I stared at it for a moment. Then, I found myself looking at Hayes' bike and remembering yesterday. My eyes got glossy and I laid my head down.

I didn't even realize anyone was here until Ms. Katy started speaking.

"Good morning class!" She sang.

"Good morning Ms.Katy." Everyone replied tiredly.

"Well aren't you all tired?"

"Of course we are!" Hayes snorted.
