Sitting in my room and crying was not how I planned my day to go. I didn't even know him and yet, I knew Jessica. She's the Queen B**** at our school and she wants Hunter more than anything else. It's like he's some sort of trophy to her. She's the only girl he's slept with more than once. So, she thinks that makes them a couple. It doesn't but, she doesn't listen. The amount of arguments they have had in the canteen, you would think that is a theater stage and she's in the spot light.
Right now, I'm sitting on my bed in my fluffy PJs to keep me warm and to make me feel more comfortable and cosy. I'm surrounded by tissues and popsicle sticks. What a mess. My nose is all red and blocked while my face is red and blotchy. My life sucks, I'm just glad my mum isn't here to see me like this. She doesn't need anything else on her plate. I'm watching The Notebook. It's such a sad film but, it's so romantic and beautiful, I just wish that my life was that simple. I wipe my eyes again as more tears leak down my face. I'm such an idiot. I've never been interested in boys at school but, I guess because I know what guys really think of me hurts.
I slam my face into my pillow as I go to grab another Popsicle stick but, I've eaten them all. Stupid emotions and stupid boys. I have been teased before don't get me wrong but, never has anyone done something like this to me. The film comes to end and I grab my phone and check Facebook. I almost drop my phone when I see what's on the site. It's the video of me that one of the idiots took. Jessica was the one that uploaded the video. I scroll down and look at the comments. More tears run down my face as I read them. 'Ew, who even is that?'
'What a tramp'
'I thought she was meant to be smart' The tears keep running down my face. I've never been hurt like this before. To be honest with you I don't know why Jessica hates me.
I think back to me running out of the library, by that time the halls were already filled with students. I hadn't even noticed I had been followed until that boy came out after me holding up Jessica's phone with the video on it for the whole world to see. I was mortified and for the rest of the day, I was laughed at and teased, all because I was dragged into something and I don't know why.
I know now that when I go to school tomorrow I will no longer be invisible, I won't be able to hide and just walk away or be a chameleon and just blend into the background. No. I will be put into the spotlight and that's something I can't do. I have terrible stage fright and I hate receiving attention. Worst of all it's for something embarrassing, which means nothing good is going to come from this, the rest of the year would be filled with being teased and pushed around. I don't think I could deal with that.
I shake these thoughts away so I can put another film on when I hear the doorbell ring. I go silent, who could be at my house at 9 o'clock? I know that doesn't sound late but, I'm a nerd the only friend I have is Lily and if she was coming over she would have texted me first and she wouldn't bother ringing the door bell, she would just have walked in. Maybe it's a burglar or a hit man. Yes, I really just thought that. Like who would put out a hit on me?
I creep downstairs and I grab the first thing I can find to protect myself. It's a book. Of course, it's a book I'm a nerd. The doorbell rings again and I think maybe it's just my mum but she would have keys. Standing in front of the door I can see a tall looming shadow outside the door. I raise the book ready to strike the person behind the door down. My heart is pounding in my ears and my hands are shaking slight. Unlocking the door slowly I look up and see no other than Hunter Black. He smiles at me, that award winning smile and I slam the door in his face.
What the hell is he doing here? With my heart pounding in my ears I turn around to look at the door again. It's probably a prank to go along with the one that's already happened. Hunter bangs his fist against the door. "Ava, just let me in. I only want to talk." Oh my gosh! Hunter Black knows my name! I fangirl in my head slightly before scolding myself. I stand there and wait to see if he says anything else. I hear him sigh and walk away from the door. Maybe I should just listen to what he has to say. I mean it's only Hunter fricking Black!
Slowly I walk up to the door and open it. I see him walking to his car. "Hunter?" I call out to him but, it sounds more like a question. He turns and his eyes find mine in the dim light. I reach for the porch light and it flickers on. I see him squint slightly before his dazzling eyes lock with my own dull pair. He walks up to the steps until he's standing right in front of me. He's so tall compared to me, he's 8 inches taller than me. It's weird I know that, isn't it?
Looking up at him is actually giving me neck pains. Stupid genes making me small, what did I do to deserve this?
He's giving that famous smirk of his and I feel my breath hitch in my throat. He is gorgeous. I blush as I realise what I'm wearing and that I have been staring at home this whole entire time.
Hunter looks me up and down and coughs and glances away awkwardly. Is the bad boy, the big player nervous and embarrassed? Or is he just so unimpressed with how I look? I smile slightly and move away letting Hunter into my house. Most girls would probably die if Hunter Black was stood in the house. Then again, I'm not most girls.
