“I hate school” I slur. I know hate is a strong word but fuck it’s so annoying. Everyone walks slowly In the halls, girls speak at the top of their lungs early in the morning, oh and annoying teachers.

Me and Kai walk into class and pick our seats.

“So what did you think of aurora?” I ask

“She’s cool, just a little shy,”Kai says, getting out his supplies.

“Do you think she’s pretty?”

Kai stops what he’s Doing at my question “uh yea she’s pretty but not my type”

“Mhm” me and Kai have been friends forever. I know him like a book. People never understood our relationship because it seems like we hate each other but that could be more untrue.

I even had a crush on him in the third grade. I mean come on he’s hot. Tons of girls would throw themselves at him. He would just turn them down so I knew I would never have a chance. But all of that changed.

Me and Blair were going to meet up Kai after his football practice. We didn’t want to wait outside so we went to the room near the boys locker room . But when We got there I saw something I thought I would never see. Kai and a guy kissing.

Everyone on the team had already left and Blair was too busy on her phone to notice. I quickly told her some lies so we would leave and she wouldn’t see anything. If he wanted to tell us he would.

I don’t get why he didn’t. I will always accept him, he’s my best friend. Did he think I would judge him? That question is always in my head.

“Kai you going to practice” guys in varsity jackets appear. I leave them to their conversation.

シ シ シ

Class went by with everyone introducing themselves. Of course we had to go in front of the class and tell everyone about ourselves. The only thing I said was I like to read. And it’s true I do, just with a little spice.

I couldn’t tell the whole class that I would wake up in the afternoon, eat almost everything I see, watch shameless over and over, and rethink my life. They would think I’m crazy.

I’m not.

I met some of the football boys. One stood up at me. Maybe because he kept staring at Kai like he wanted to bite him the whole time.

I would have said something to him but there were a whole bunch of people around and plus I didn’t want to get in his business.

Everyone is now sitting back in their seats waiting for the teacher to announce upcoming work.

“Alright students you have a project due in two weeks, I also made it partner work so everyone can get to know each other” the teacher starts off.

Please let me get Kai.

“Here’s the partners, Brandon and Kayla…”


“Jackson and Kai” WHAT

“Hazel and grey” NO

I know almost everyone in school and everything about them. But not grey. He was the quiet boy who always sat at the back of the class. He wouldn’t wear anything but a black and white. Which went perfectly with his looks. He has dark black hair, blue eyes, defined jawline, and narrow nose.

He sits in the back with his teeth holding a pencil reading a book in his own world not paying any attention to the class.

My eyes obverse every inch of him. He's hot who wouldn’t look at him!

He catches my gaze and we make eye contact. His icy cold eyes hold no emotion as he looks at me.

Quickly I look elsewhere, not trying to keep the awkward moment going.

The bell rings and everyone starts to leave the class.

“Well that’s a bummer we can’t work together” I say to Kai packing my stuff.

“It’s fine I didn’t want to work with you anyway”

“You're such an..” a tap on the shoulder interrupts me.

“Ms.young I suggest you go after your partner to talk about the project since you guys haven’t talked already”

I nod my head and both Kai and I walk out of class.



“No dad I can’t” I tell him for the fifty time. I’ve been on the phone with him for about 20 minutes now rejecting his offer.

He is trying to make me marry his friend's son because of the money. His friend owns a lot of buildings and is richer than us so it’s the perfect opportunity for my dad to get more money.

But I don’t wanna marry him. It isn’t like he’s ugly or anything. In fact he’s really hot. I just don’t wanna be forced to marry someone. I want my own love story.

Plus we’re rich enough already but my dad just wants more and more.

*𝐵𝑙𝑎𝑖𝑟 𝑤ℎ𝑦 𝑐𝑎𝑛’𝑡 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑚𝑒𝑒𝑡 ℎ𝑖𝑚 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑙𝑢𝑛𝑐ℎ 𝑎𝑓𝑡𝑒𝑟 𝑠𝑐ℎ𝑜𝑜𝑙*

“Because dad I’m going to Hazel’s this afternoon”

*𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑐𝑎𝑛 ℎ𝑎𝑛𝑔𝑜𝑢𝑡 𝑎𝑛𝑜𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑟 𝑑𝑎𝑦 𝐵𝑙𝑎𝑖𝑟 𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑠 𝑖𝑠 𝑚𝑜𝑟𝑒 𝑖𝑚𝑝𝑜𝑟𝑡𝑎𝑛𝑡*

“Dad I told you I didn’t want to do it why won’t you listen to me”

*𝑤𝑒 𝑤𝑖𝑙𝑙 𝑡𝑎𝑙𝑘 𝑎𝑏𝑜𝑢𝑡 𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑠 𝑙𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑟* he hangs up the phone not letting me get another word in. He never listens to me ever. It’s always been what he wants, not what I want.

He wants me to do piano. I do it, he wants all A’s I do it. Everything about him, never me.

Huffing, I walk to the cafeteria to meet up Hazel,Kai, and Aurora.


“We’ll look who's finally here” Hazel slurs.

“Sorry was on the phone with my dad”

“I hate your dad” Kai comments.

“Sometimes I do too”

“What’s wrong with your dad” Aurora questions.

“he’s a controlling rich crazy man” I boldly say

“Hm” aurora nods.

“Well remember we’re going to my house to get groceries this afternoon, aurora wanna come?” Hazel reminds us while eating her apple.

“Yea I will just follow you guys there” Aurora smiles.

“I’m gonna be a little late. I have practice so don’t wait on me” Kai says.

We all nod our heads.

“So aurora did you like meeting Jason” I question

Her cheeks go red. “Kinda he’s very interesting”

“He definitely is” Hazel laughs.

“Totally hot though”

“True” Hazel agrees.

“Omg can you guys not talk about my teammate like he’s a piece of meat? '' Kai throws his hands up in the air.

Laughs go around the table.

“So I assume you know what his chest looks like”

“Why would I” Kai asks confused

“Because you guys get dressed together in the locker room” I press.

“Didn’t you date him?” Hazel asks

“It’s was in forth grade doesn’t count” fucking bitches

“But back to you Kai, how does his chest look?” I say turning the conversation back to Kai.

“Why do you even- aurora what are you looking at?” Kai asks, making our attention turn to her. She stares in daze while someone walks by.


“What was that?” Hazel questions noticing her.

“Hm?” Aurora answered like we didn’t see her hypnotize.

“Look I’m gonna tell you this because I don’t want you to get hurt, Jason uses his charm on girls and gets them in bed then doesn’t talk to them again” I feel sick to my stomach saying that.

“Really?” Aurora eyes go wide in shock.

“Yea but everyone knows he doesn’t do relationships” Kai intervenes

She nods her head understanding what we’re saying. It’s not like Jason is a totally bad guy. He can be really charming and funny at times well when he was younger but he doesn’t like anyone that's why he does date.

We used to be really close friends but he shut me out. He shut everyone out. He’s more blunt with people and doesn’t give a shit. The only emotion you can see is when he’s flirting but we all know it isn’t real.

He’s not a total dickhead he tells the girls what it is but it still doesn’t make it right.

We go on the rest of lunch getting to know more about Aurora and our plans this afternoon.

Promising to drive we all go to our next class.

☻︎ ☹︎ ☻︎


Laughing and joking we stand in the locker room changing for practice.

This is why I love football so much.Blair and Hazel and now Aurora are my best friends but I need to hang around guys. I don’t have a brother or sister so I get lonely sometimes. so The football team became the family I never had.

My parents are always busy going on trips for work. So it’s just me and Nina, our maid. I'm glad that I have more than I ever need. But I want dinners with my family,dad showing up to my games, that type of stuff.

“Ayo Kai” Jackson yells from the other side of the locker room. He’s in my english class so we already know each other. He stands 6’3,brown,green eyes, and a perfect body.


“Uh I saw you with that girl in class” he starts walking toward me.

“Yea Hazel what about her?” I questioned.

His attitude changed. He was just confident but now he’s standing in front of me looking down at the ground like he's scared to continue.

“Uh, is she your girlfriend?” he asks, still not looking me in the eyes.

“Hazel no she’s my best friend” I reassure him.

He finally lifts his head up to meet my eyes. He’s not like a scared puppy anymore. He’s now happy with my answer. He didn’t have to say anything. I knew how he felt.

“You're an asswhole Jason” suddenly Aaron and Jason walked towards us. By the look on Jason's face I can tell this isn’t the first time he heard that.

“You don’t even know the girl” Jason slurs back at Aaron.

“Yes I do, her name is Aurora and she’s mine”.

Aurora? How does he know her and why did he say “she’s mine”. She might be new to our group but I’m still gonna look after her.

“Are yall talking about that shy girl with brown hair?” I ask. Maybe they're talking about another Aurora.

“Yea” they both anwer at the same time.


“How do you know her?” Jason wondered.

“She’s my best friend”

“You got three hot best friends,” Jackson says in shock.

“Wait I know Blair but who’s the other?” Aaron questions, confused about everything.


“I heard about her. She and Grey got paired up for a project in class all the girls are mad``Jackson mentions.

“Well stay away from Aurora” I turned to Jason and Aaron. I know Hazel wouldn’t even spend two seconds on them but Auroras are different. She doesn’t see the mean in people, only kindness. I can tell.

“Alright papa bear you got it” Aaron chuckles while Jason doesn’t respond . Both him and Aaron walk away ready to change.

Hope those fuckers don’t do anything stupid

Standing at my locker I open my bag and place all the books I need into it. I have to hurry up back home so I can prepare dinner and still manage to do homework.

My eyes drift to the locker beside me. Grey stands lining his books up from biggest to smallest placing them into his bag. I know he’s big on dirt. He would always wipe off his desk before sitting down. He doesn’t have ocd or anything, he's just very clean and organized.

I slam my locket close and avert my attention to him.

“Hey we didn’t talk about the project when do you wanna meet up?” I ask

“Saturday 3 pm, is that good for you?” He responds

“Yea totally fine with me, here's my number” I handed him my phone to exchange numbers.

“Queen” he says out of nowhere totally making me confused.

His face still holds no expression.

Seeing my confused face he point to my phone “Your Home Screen it’s the band Queen”

“Yea it’s my favorite band” queen is literally iconic and will forever be.

“Mines too” he agrees.

Blair and Aurora are talking at the other side of the lockers waiting for me. “Ok well I gotta go see you on Saturday” I turn away from him and walk towards my friends.
