Hate Can Only Lead To One Thing

Humor / Romance

Begin Again

Zach's POV:

I was starting at another school. All I seemed to do was change schools, but I had a feeling this time was going to be different. This was a new start; no-one knew me here at Gallagher High School. It wouldn't be like at Blackthorne Academy, I could put the past behind me, make new friends and just be myself, whoever 'myself' was... I didn't know where to go, I hate the feeling when everyone knows where they are going but you don't. The first day of term is always the worst, not knowing anyone but then I saw them.

Grant, Jonas and Preston leaning against a red Lamborghini, I had really missed my old friends, but as much as I wanted to go and greet them I was a little distracted by the group of girls standing in the car park, one in particular, one who seemed to be easy to miss by others but not to me. I couldn't take my eyes off her. I wondered what I should do, should I show her the Goode charm or go and see Grant, Jonas and Preston?

I then noticed the girl I had seen go off to what seemed to be her locker and I decided that Grant, Jonas and Preston would be slightly disappointed if I let a girl as beautiful as her slip through my fingers. She is such a mystery, but her grey eyes captivate me. As she put her books neatly inside her locker I leaned against the locker next to hers and smirked at her. I looked down to the irresistibly beautiful girl with long dishwater blonde hair that looked incredibly soft. I had a sudden urge to run my fingers through it. I was wondering if she was ever going to notice me when she sent me a confused look out of the corner of her eyes. I waited another minute to see if she would be polite and start up a conversation, but she didn't, only sending me sneaky glances from the corner of her eyes every now and then.

As she was clearly trying to ignore me, I guess I had better introduce myself, "Hi, I'm Zach Goode. I just started today"

She looked at me and replied, "I'm Cammie." She shut her locker hard and went to join her friends without even a glance behind her, who just so happened to be talking to Grant, Jonas and Preston. She seemed mad, had I done something wrong or was she just not the kind of person I assumed she was. I stared after her, watching her hips sway slightly as she fiercely walked over to her group of friends, her arms swinging back and forth as she started to approach the group, muttering as she went. She didn't seem impressed with the Zach Goode charm. Although I was slightly shocked, I tried not to show it. Normally girls can't resist my smirk, had my Goode charm not worked?

Cammie's POV:

Urgh! I can't believe what he just did. That, that Zach Goode. I knew his type, the cocky type. I can't stand him and I had only just met him. I couldn't take catching glimpses of his smirk and emerald green eyes anymore so I went to join the girls who had each gathered their books from their lockers and started up a conversation with Grant, Preston and Jonas, their secret crushes.

I walked over to the girls trying to calm down after the Zach situation whilst muttering under my breath about the nerve Zach had.

"Hey guys, you'll never guess what just happened. Zach Goode, the new kid, tried to hit on me. Urgh! He thinks that he just needs to flash that smirk and he will get everything he wants." I was finding it very hard to control my feelings, I felt my face burning red and becoming very hot as I thought about how much nerve he had.

As I said it, the boys heads all shot up, looked at each other and all chorused, "Wait, who? Did you just say Zach Goode?" Wait, did they know him? Had they seen him earlier this morning or known him before today? I could feel his eyes burning through my head, he was coming. I could hear him approaching, his shoes shuffling along the floor. I was losing my patience, I had got up early to decide on a Macey-approved outfit for the first day of school so I was deprived of an extra half an hour of sleep. Just as I was about to spin round on my feet, he plastered that smirk on his face again and approached us.

Zach stood in front of me, the boys looking amazed as he said confidently "Did I just hear my name? Hey guys, I haven't seen you in ages, maybe six or seven years?" As he said this, he did that weird man hug and handshake that it seems every boy seemed to know. "So are you going to introduce me to your friends? It seems I've already met the ever so friendly and welcoming Cammie."

I rolled my eyes as he said this, that sarcastic smirker! Bex stepped forward as everyone seemed deep in thought, analysing Zach. "Hi, my name is Rebecca but call me that and you won't live another day. You can just call me Bex." Grant chuckled as Bex said her piece, it was obvious they liked each other, well to everyone but them. She continued, "this is Macey and here is Liz." Just as she said this, the bell rang. Me and Liz, each grabbed Macey and Bex's hands and ran to class, we didn't want to be late for our first day of the term.

As we ran down the corridors, Macey called over my shoulder, "He didn't seem that bad, he seemed pretty friendly and the boys obviously like him. I don't know why you don't like him." I rolled my eyes at this comment and stopped in the middle of the corridor.

"Firstly, he thinks he can get anything with that smirk, secondly he thinks he is all that and thirdly we don't even know him that well." As the late bell rang, all three of my friends grabbed my wrist and dragged me into the classroom, just before Professor Buckingham entered, ready to take the register.
