I was walking through school to my locker. I was so tired since after the movies I decided to watch black and white horror flicks until three am. I officially regret that now. I got to my locker, opening it. "Hey Kim!" I groaned like a zombie.

"Hi." I sighed, burying my head in my locker.

"Late night?"

"Yep."

"Horror films?"

"Yep."

"Is that even a good thing?"

"Nope."

"Then why do it to yourself?"

"You know why."

"I really do. But if you keep your head in that locker you're going to miss first period."

"Don't remind me, Jack." I took my head out of the locker, setting it in there. I grabbed my science book and closed my locker.

"Can you tell Mr Heem that I'm going to be late to school? I need a nap."

"Don't get caught."

"Haven't been caught before." I smiled and he smiled back. I made my way to the music room, no one had music for first period and the teacher who teaches music also taught other classes so the music room would be perfect.

As I got in there, I heard someone singing.

Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he's right beside you?

When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?

Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?

If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

'Cause I'm not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving

I remember the make-up running down your face

I walked farther in the music room, hitting something that made a noise.

"Hello?" I heard them, I saw Colton stand up with a guitar in his hands.

"It's me..." I said shyly, embarrassed.

"Oh, hi." He put the guitar down.

"I'm sorry if I disturbed you."

"Don't worry about it."

"Um, that was amazing..." I said, rubbing my arm awkwardly.

"Thank you." He said with a sad smile. I knew the smile all too well.

"I heard about your break-up, I'm guessing that's what the song is about?"

"Um, yeah."

"I guess I should go now.."

"No, stay. Why did you come in here?"

"I'm tired and I nap in here sometimes."

"Go and nap then, I can probably play something for you." He smiled and I nodded, walking over to him. He sat on the couch, and I sat next to him. I was confused when he put the guitar down.

"I-"

"I decided to just sing." He smiled like he read my mind. I couldn't help but smile at him. "You can lay on my lap if you want to."

I listened to him and laid my head on his lap. I closed my eyes as he hummed a melody that I didn't exactly recognised but was asleep before I could even know it.

I woke up and felt like it been years since I was awake. I could barely recognise where I was, but I heard voices. I blinked, hoping to get my vision back. When I could see, I knew where I was, nurse's office. "Why am I here?" I muttered, wondering would I even be heard to begin with.

"Your nose started bleeding..." Colton replied, he looked worried. "That happens a lot." I lied, wishing he wouldn't worried. He reminded me of, Jack. "Do any of my friends know?"

"Um, no? Do you want me to tell them?"

"No, no!" I plead, I didn't want more people to worry about something that could be minor. "Kim, I found out that your nose was bleeding from allergies. It's nothing serious."

"I'm not allergic to anything."

"Are you sure?"

"As far as I know of, yes."

"Have anything new happened?"

"Not that I know of..." I answered honestly. "Wait." Colton said, which made me and the nurse look at him.

"I'm wearing cologne."

"Well, in that case, stay away from Mr Junes for the day. Think you can do that?"

"No promises." I joked, sitting up. "I'm serious, Kimberly."

"I was joking, I got it." I said, getting up completely. "What class are we in?"

"You're going home, Kim."

"Okay, fine with me." I smiled a little as she got on the phone. "I'm sorry." He mouthed to me with a frown, I shrugged. "It's fine." I mouthed back with a smile toward him.

She told me my dad was coming to pick me up so I went to the front of the school, waiting for him. It took a minute before he pulled up but of course when he did, someone called my name. I turned around, facing Jack. "I heard about your allergies, I'm sorry."

"It's allergies, I'm alive." I said, smiling. He hugged me, before waving to my dad. I got in the car and my dad pulled off. I got a text from Milton:

Milton: She said yes to me, only if Colton and you come, please tell me Colton is up for it! I need this.

Me: I think he'll be up to it, when are we doing this?

Milton: Tonight?

"Can I hang out with Milton and two of our friends tonight?"

"Sure, just get home before 10."

"Thank you."

After we got home, I slept until my phone rung. I answered it, "Yeah?"

"It's 7, are you ready?"

"Um, no.. I jsut woke up, I'll get dressed."

"I also talked to Colton and he said it would be glad to."

"That's great, can't wait to go on this double date." I yawned, and got out of my bed. "Pick me up in about 30 mintues."

"Got it."

"See you then."
