Still Mira's POV
It's been a crappy morning so far. You would think that Friday's would be really happy since it's the weekend after today. But no, it was the opposite for me.

I woke up late because someone thought it would be fun to unplug my alarm clock. Stupid siblings. Luckily, I woke up only about 5 minutes later so I tried to get ready in a hurry to be ready for when Jay would be here to pick me up. But apparently, my bratty siblings decided to prank me further by attacking me with water guns as soon as I excited my room. So of course, naturally, I had to takle and punch them both. Then, I had to go find a new outfit and redo my hair and makeup. Wow that made me sounds like an egotistic bitch. Oh wells.

When I was finally ready, I went to go meet to Jay at the end of Jacob's driveway.
"Hey where's Jacob?" I asked as I got on the motorcycle.
"I don't know. I got a text from this randomly this morning saying that he already left for school." Jay explained as we pulled out of the driveway.
"Well how kind of him to inform me." I said sarcastically.
We got to school and Jacob's car was there in its usual parking spot.
"I've got a bad feeling about this." I muttered when we passed the car.
"So do I." Jay responded. We were now about to enter the building when I was stopped by a bitch. Oh excuse me, stopped by Rina.
"Well look who it is." She sneered. She turned to Jay.
"So Jay, do you and Jacob hang out with this slob because you feel bad for her?" She asked, pretending to look curious.
"What?" Jay oh so smartly said back.
"You know. Do you hang out with her because you feel bad for her because she's a worthless slut that has no friends?" She looked directly at me as she said this. I felt like she just repeatedly wacked me in the face with a refrigerator. I stared with shock at her.
"Oh look at the little baby. Can't accept the truth can you." She said in a voice like she was talking to a toddler. "You have no friends. You're a nobody." She laughed sickly. Jay was to stunned to do anything but stare with wide eyes. I was to hurt to do anything but stare are tears formed. I knew Rina could be mean but not like this.
"Oh we'll have a nice life." She said nicely, as if nothing happened. She turned and walked back over to her friends. Jay turned to me and put his hands on my shoulders.
"Are you ok?" I could see the concern on his face. I managed a bright smile and wiped the tears off my face.
"Ya I'm fine. I'm just gonna go to my locker to get some books. I'll see you later ok?" I said in an overly cheery voice. I could tell Jay didn't believe me but he slowly nodded his head and walked away anyways.
The bell hadn't rung yet, so I went to the bathroom and wiped away all my tears. I looked at myself in the mirror and smiled. Looked convincing enough for me.
-----
Finally lunch! All day, I felt like people were staring at me. And I couldn't get what happened this morning out of my head.
I to my locker to grab some books so I wouldn't have to get them after lunch.
"Hello princess." Jacob smiled. He was leaning against the locker next to mine.
"Go away. I'm not in the mood." I said angrily.
"Well someone's cranky." He muttered. I ignored him and unlocked my locker. When I opened it, a bunch of stuff fell out. It took me a minute to process what it was, but I soon figured it out. It was every single one of my bras and underpants. I heard Jacob laughing his ass of. I looked over at him and he had a camera in his hand. I stood there in shock.
"Gotcha." He laughed. Everyone had gathered and was laughing and taking pictures of me.
Between this and everything else that had happened this morning, I blew up. I burst into tears. I mean I was basically bawling. This just made everyone laugh harder. Especially Jacob.
"What, can't take a joke?" He asked.
"I hate you! I hate Rina! I hate everyone!" I screamed in a shrill voice. This made Jacob finally realize something was wrong.
"What's wrong princess?" He started to take a step towards me, but I turned and ran.
I heard the bell signaling that lunch had started, but I didn't care. I ran out of the building and towards my house. I knew it would take me awhile to get home, but I didn't care. The whole way home, I cried. At this point, I didn't even know what I was crying about. I guess just about everything bad that had happened to me. I don't know. Thank gosh it's Friday...
------
I wasn't even home for ten minutes when Jacob was coming in my room.
"Go away!" I said tiredly. I just wanted to take a nap and not get out of bed for anything but food.
"What's wrong?" He ignored my protests and laid on my bed next to me. Suddenly, instead of feeling tired or sad, I felt furious. I sat up and so did he.
"Everything's wrong! My best friend turned her back on me and became a bitch. Then, today, she decided to make fun of me in front of all her new snotty friends. Then you add to it by embarrassing me in front of half the school. Plus It doesn't make me feel better knowing that I have literally no friends at all!" About halfway through my rant, I started punching Jacob on the shoulder. He just sat there and let me. Once I was done, he grabbed my wrists so I couldn't move my hands.
"I'm your friend." He said gently to me.
"I don't believe you." I tried to free my hands but he wouldn't let go.
"Why not?" He asked.
"Who would want to be friends with me." He finally let go of my hands when I said this. I went to lay back down but instead, he grabbed my chin and made me look at him.
"Who wouldn't? I know I would." He gently said.
"I'm your friend. And so is Jay." He whispered and used his thumb to brush away tears I hadn't realized had fallen. I felt my cheeks redden in embarrassment. I pushed him away. After a few seconds of just sitting there, Jacob took my by surprise by saying something I least expected.

"Mira. Will you do me the honor of hanging out with me tonight?" He said in a posh British accent.
"Last time I hung out with you, you left me in a park. How could I trust you?"
"Because if you haven't realized by now, I only put up with people I like. The others I usually ignore." I didn't say anything to him. I refused to look at him.
"Let me prove it to you. Let's hang out tonight." He pleaded.
"Date! I have a date with Jay tonight!" I stared in horror at Jacob. I can't believe I completely forgot. I looked at the clock and saw it was already 1:36. Wow I can't believe it's already been and hour since I got home. School would be ending in at 2:50.
"Jay won't care." Jacob tried to argue.
"Yes he will"
"Well I can't just cancel on him." I said.
"Why not?" He whined like a little kid.
"Because."
"Because why?"
"Because I want to go."
"Too bad. I'm canceling for you." Before I realized what he meant, he grabbed my phone and went to Jay's contact. I tried to reach for it but Jacob managed to keep it away. Stupid me for not putting a passcode on it.
Jacob read out loud as he typed.
"Dear Jay, I'm sorry but I can't make it to our date tonight. I realized that you are a big smelly poopy head loser. Sorry not sorry. Xoxo -M"
"What are you doing?!" I screeched. I grabbed my phone just as he hit send.
"Damn you." I said and punched him.
'Sorry that was Jacob. But I am sorry I can't make our date tonight.' I typed, aware that Jacob was reading over my shoulder.
I turned to Jacob and scowled at him.
"So about hanging out?" He asked, acting innocent.
"Whatever." I grumbled. He got up and headed to the door.
"Great. See you later."
"Go to Tartarus muggle!" I yelled after him. I'm such a dork. I just managed to reference Percy Jackson and Harry Potter in one sentence.
