Chapter 2

🎶I can't fight this feeling any longer.
And yet I am still afraid of letting it flow.
What started as friendship has grown stronger.
I wish I had the the strength to let it show.🎶

Can't fight this feeling by REO Speedwagon.


After a 16 minutes ride, we reach our college.

I get out of the car and look it my beautiful school. I don't know why people hate school so much because I find no reason to hate my school.

"Ok, I gotta go." Mads said rushing out of the car.

She's always busy as she is the class president, the basketball captain, the assistant for the organization club. She's the head of the drama club as well as a part of music dance and art club.

*Phew* I don't even know how she manages it.

I walked to the hallway when I see Mr Anthony.

"Good Morning Mr Anthony." I greeted my business teacher.

"A very good morning to you too Miss Francis." he replied walking past.

I made my way to the locker.

"Hola, Scarlett." Isabelle, my junior said as she passed by.

"Hola, Isa." I replied as I took out some books and locked to my locker.

After a few more greetings, good mornings and hellos, I finally reach my class.

It's not that I'm very popular or something. People happen to like me and according to Mads, I am friendly and pretty and that's why people wants to be friends with me.

I enter the class and a few of my classmates exchange his and hellos. I take my seat next to Cruz.

"Hola Cruz." I said and he looked at me with a genuine smile.

"Hola, Scar. Què pasa (What's up?)" he asked as I take out my Spanish book.

"To do bie.( All good)." I replied.

Mrs Paloma, our Spanish teacher entered the room and soon it was silence in the class.

After a half an hour of lecture, the bell rings. I get out of the class.

Since the next class was gym I go to basketball court. I see a large crowd as I get in. I rush in wishing it not to be Leo fighting and my wish is unfulfilled.

I see that Max and Blaze are again fighting with Leo.

"Stop, stop, stop." I said stepping in between.

"No. Scar, stay away from this." Max said.

"Yeah, Stay OUT." Leo shouts punching Blaze.

"Guys, please stop. Max don't. Leo no." I pleaded.

"Scar, GO." Max shouted still fighting.

"Please guys." I said with a small tear flowing and Max stops and geestures Blaze to stop.

"Stop crying. Scar, look I stopped." Max said wiping my small tear.

"Th-thanks Max." I said giving him a small smile.

"Just ask this guy to stay AWAY from my sister. " Max said as he glared at Leo who rolled his eyes.

"Yeah." I replied.

"Go to your respective classes." Blaze said and the crowd disappears.

I rush to Leo.

Leo was my best friend since I remember. We spend the whole childhood together and went to same schools and colleges. His father happens to be the partner of my father and his business.

"Good Morning." Leo said still laying on the floor.

"Great way to say good morning or what a good morning." I yelled sarcastically and frustrated.

"You didn't have to come in between. You could have gotten injured or something." he said sitting down.

I looked at his wounds and his knees were bleeding, lips were torn and hands were bruised.

"If I didn't then Max would probably killed you." I replied.

"I am the school's bad boy. Getting hurt is a big deal for me." he said smirking.

"It is a very big deal. For me." I said taking out the first aid box.

I cover his knees with bandage cloth.

"That should be a big deal for you." he said and I smiled.

"What was the fight about this time?" I asked him.

Yes Leo is always fighting and he is always hurting himself. He always says that it is reputation that he has to manage but I think it's absurd.

"Amanda. She is a beauty. I have never seen such beauty. But as l am a unlucky guy as she is Max's sister." he explained.

"Oh that explains everything." I said with a fake smile.
Friends don't fake smile in front of each other, right?
But it hurts and I can't show him that it hurts.

Unfortunately, I am in love with him for a year now. This idiot doesn't even know it.

"I really like her, dude." he said and I took a deep breath.

"Isn't she the 12th girl you liked, this month?" I said sarcastically.

"No Scar, this one is special af." he said.

Why is it that everyone is special except me?

"Okay, go to your class now." I said to him and he got up.

"Yeah, there's Amanda." he said running towards a beautiful blonde girl.

Amanda was really very beautiful. Maybe that's why he likes her. Maybe that's why he is ready to get beaten by Max for her. Her everything is so pretty.

"BOOOH!!" Mads screams snapping me out.

"God! Mads, you sacred me." I said putting my hand on my chest.

"I have Gym with you. Is that Leo with that Barbie?" She asked me narrowing her eyes.

"Yeah." I said sadly.

"Eww. She's full of plastic makeup and gross powder. And she's almost naked. It's a school not a Beach." she said.

"Mads, its not good to judge others. She is pretty." I said.

"And she is flirting with the guy you love. He is also playing along. Why can't that idiot see love you have for him?" She exclaimed angrily.

"Stop. Someone may hear you." I whisper-yelled.

"No, that's not fair you care for him. You've been there for him and he never notices you." she added.

I couldn't but I agree with her words. But at the end of the day this is the truth. The truth that he never noticed my love.

Then gym teacher comes in and we carry on with the class. The class was pretty good.

After the class, and Mads went to her class and I rushed to my class and sit at my usual seat.

"Hey." Leo said as he sat next to me.

"Hey." I muttered.

"So guess what.." Leo stated but a crippling voice cut him off.

We turn our heads to see Amanda.

"Hello, can I sit here?" she asked.

"Hi Amanda." Leo said in a flirty way.

"Hi Leo." she replied seductively.

"You want to sit here, I see why not. Scar, get up." Leo said slightly pushing.

"But this is my seat." I said with a small smile so that it doesn't seem that I am jealous of the fact that my best friend chose someone else over me.

"Come on. It doesn't have your name written on it. What kind of friend are you? Just go or I am not talking to you." he said while I try to control my anger and tears.

"Ok fine." I said getting up angrily.

"Thank you." Amanda said smiling.

"Don't mention." I said giving her a smile.

I wanted to do cry.
I love him and I can't even tell him that.

I feel devastated whenever I see him and someone else. Whenever I hear him saying that she is the best thing his ever seen or that she is special, deep within it hurts.

I look around to find a seat but every seat was taken. At last I see a seat at the last end of the class so I go up to the seat and sit there.

I put my head down to hide my tears because I couldn't control it anymore. I wish I had someone to tell how I feel right now. I wish someone comes and wipes my tears saying that it's going to be alright.

"Tissue?" I hear a familiar manly voice.
