The love triangle - chapter 4

"K-Keith?! What are you doing here?!" I blurted out at the guy who was standing in front of me.
"Well, sorry for going to the I disturbing you that much?" He answered with a casual tone.
"Eh, no...not really..", I mumbled. "Anyway, thanks for taking the box down for me..", I said and streched out my hand towards him, waiting for him to give it to me.
"Who said I took it down for you?" He answered while showing a grin on his face. It made me annoyed so I answered him back with a irritated voice. "Well, you asked me if that was the box I was reaching for.."
"Yeah, but I didn't say that I was going to give it to you."
"But I asumed you were going to since you took down the box of snacks that I was going to buy."
"Well, I'm not giving it to you." He answered shortly, and then continued while grinning again- "..but if you ask me, maybe I can give you one~"
Bastard!" I thought while I watched him walking to the cashier. Since I was done shopping as well I followed him and when I came out from the store he was leaning against the wall, waiting for me.
"Did you want a doughnut?" He asked. I stopped in front of the entrance and looked at him. "No thank you." I answered shortly. I really wanted one, but I couldn't bring myself to accept the offer. It felt like he saw right through me, because even when I declined his offer he took out a doughnut and held it towards me.
"Take it." He said and looked at me in the eyes. I was completely caught by his gaze and couldn't resist any longer so I accepted the snack with a thanks.

We walked together for about five minutes in silence when I broke it because I couldn't stand the tense air surrounding us.
"Hey, I have a question.." I started.
"Go ahead."
"Why did you put up such a fake smile today at school? ..oh, and also..why are you following me?"
"You're lying." Is all what he answered. I looked up at him stunned. "What?"
"You said you wanted to ask me a question. You asked two", he said and looked back at me.
"Shut up and just answer my questions!" I said while raising my voice a bit annoyed.
"To answer your question about today at school, it's complicated. That's why I'm doing it. But since you already know that my real personality isn't like that I feel like can relax when I'm with you." "
Relax? What's that all about? But since he understood that I know he's faking his personality I guess he rememberes that I bumped into him the other dayand he yelled at me." I thought. He smirked at me before continuing. "..and I'm not following you, I live in this direction."
"Ah, okay.." I answered and that's the end of our conversation.
We walked for about another five minutes when we reached the street where my house is located. When we reached it I stopped and pointed at the house, "Well, this is where I live.." He looked at me quite surprised. "It is?" I nodded as an answer. He turned away his face and chuckled a bit, then turned it back towards me.
"I guess that makes us neighbours then."
"Eh?" Is all I could answer to that. Then he pointed at the house across the street, where the new family have moved into this morning.
"Me and my family are the ones that moved in here today. Such a coincidence, huh?" He grinned. "Well, see you tomorrow then!" and with that he walked across the road and then went inside into his new home.

I walked home as well, and when I came inside I walked straight towards the stairs and into my room although my mom said it was dinner time. I just needed a few minutes to let the news sink in so I laid on my bed and recalled the past three minutes when he said he was our new neighbour. I couldn't believe it at first, but after thinking about it, it makes some kind of sense since a new family were moving in this morning and Keith also arrived at school as a new student today.
Ahh, I can't believe I have him as my new neighbour..what a pain!"

The love triangle - chapter 3

"Natalie, don't you think that new guy is pretty hot??" Emeline said a bit excited and looked at me smiling while she took a bite of the sandwich.

"Nope, not a bit." I answered and took a bite of mine as well while looking in another direction in the classroom to show her I wasn't really interested.

"Waah! That's so cold!" She blurted out with a dissapointed face and then looked over her shoulder to see the new guy that sat at the other end of the classroom, surrounded by people, both guys and girls. "He's quite popular..although I can understand why, he has the looks and he's kind..and I really love that smile of his!"

"The smile, huh.." I mumbled for myself and recalled the smile he showed me this morning and then the attitude he had towards me last saturday.

"The smile he has on his lips is surely fake. There's no way a person can smile that much as he's done from the morning to lunchbreak..but why does he fake it?" I thought and then finished my lunch.



I was laying on my bed reading the last book of the Hunger Games trilogy when I heard mom shouting to me from the kitchen downstairs.
"Natalie, can you please go to the grocery store? We've run out of milk and I'm in the middle of cooking the dinner right now..!"
"But I was just
about to do my homework!" I shouted back although it was a lie. I wasn't going to start with it until after dinner. I flipped the page as I heard her shouting again. ”But the grocery store is only ten minutes from here, I'm sure you have some time over!” I just sighed and got out of my bed. I walked down the staircase and towards the front door. I put my shoes on and opened the door.
“I'll get going then..!” I shouted to my busy mom that stood next to the stove.
“Thank you, Natalie!”

Because it was almost closing time, I was alone inside the supermarket, or so I tought. I grabbed two packages of milk from the dairy sector and then I stopped by the snacks, looking if there was anything worth buying that could satisfy my desire for something sweet.
My eyes caught a lonely, pink box which contained doughnuts with strawberry glaze. I immediately decided to buy it, but the thing is that it was standing on the top shelf, which is unreachable for me. I stood on my toes and reached my hand for the pink box, but it was futile.
Suddenly someone else grabbed the box I had set my eyes on and a man said with a gentle voice-
"Is this what you wanted?" I stood there for a second, surprised by the persons appearence.
"Ah.." I started as I came to my senses again and turned around to face the man "..thank you for helping m-", but before I had the chance to finish the sentence I saw who this man was. It was none other than..

The love triangle - chapter 2

Monday morning:
I woke up a little before 7 o'clock, it was even before the alarm had started to ring because I heard some noises outisde. When I looked out by the window I saw two goods vehicles and a few people were carrying some stuff from it to that empty house across the road.
"Hm? Is someone moving into that house?" I mumbled and then turned away from it because I didn't really care. Just then my alarm went off and I quickly walked over to switch it off. Then I started to prepare for school.

"Hey Natalie, can't you come with me to One Direction's concert on April 5th?" Emeline asked me with a teasing voice. I just glared at her as I took out my notebook from my bag and opened it. "You know I hate their music..and weren't you going with Abigail?"
"Yeah, but it would be more fun if you came along..I'm sure you would start liking them if you came to the concert! They're cute, funny and hot! They have everything! And you should've seen Louis when they were in Japan, one day on an interview he wore a t-shirt with the American flag on, even though they are in Japan and bla bla bla..!" I stopped listening somewhere in the middle when I started sketching but she didn't seem to notice it at first, 'cause she continued her talk about that silly boy group that can't even sing..
"Hey Natalie, are you listening?!" Emeline said and waved with her hand in front of my face when she noticed that I wasn't responding to her talk. "...Did you start drawing again?? Argh, you never listen to me when you draw.." She said and sighed.
"Nope, but I'll maybe start listen if you can stop talking about that silly group.." I answered with a teasing voice while I started draw a boy's face.
"What..?! They're not silly, but those emo groups that you listen to are silly! They think that they're tough when they tattoo themselves and wears tons of piercings..!" Emeline blurted out. She always becomes quite pissed when I'm saying bad stuff about the group.
"Then please go back to your seats, class is about to begin now." Our homeroom teacher Mr. Thompson said and walked into the classroom. I heard some people in front of me whipser "Who's that?", "Is he a new student?", "He looks pretty hot" etc, but I didn't pay attention to it.
"This is Keith, and starting from today, he will be your new classmate. Please introduce yourself.." Mr. Thompson said.
"Hello everyone, I'm Keith and I've moved here from Belfast. Please take care of me", he said and smiled brightly. I still didn't pay attention to class and instead, I was continuing with my sketch.
"Then Keith, please take ur seat in that empty chair in the back row of the classroom." Mr. Thompson said and pointed to the empty seat next to me. Keith sat down next to me although I barely noticed it and greeted me with a smile. "Hello nice to meet you, I'm Keith. I turned my head towards him and immediately recognized him. "You..!" I said with a low but surprised voice.
"Excuse me? Have we met somewhere before?" He asked confused.
"Ah, no. I've must of mistaken you for someone else.." I answer and apologized and then faced my sketch again to finish it, although I clearly recognized that guy from yesterday when I accidentally bumped into him.
"Hm? What are you drawing?" He asked and tilted his head towards me of curiosity.
"None of your concerns.." I answered coldly.
"Ahh, you're drawing an boy.."
"Will you just mind your own business!?" I blurted out towards him.
"Natalie, homeroom started 15 minutes ago, please be quiet." Mr. Thompson said and looked at me plaguey.
"I'm sorry Mr. Thompson.." I answered and looked down on my desk to show him I meant it.
"Sorry, the teacher yelled at you becuase of me..but let's get along, okay?" He said and smiled again and then turned his face towards the blackboard.
"Why is that arrogant guy here?! And what's with that creepy smile!?" I thought and glared at him secretly while the peace in my high school life has started to break down abruptly because of one particular person!

The love triangle - chapter 1

I woke up when the alarm started to ring.
"Ahh shut up, it's saturday today!" I shouted and switched off the alarm. I was just about to fall asleep again when I remembered that I promised my best friend Emeline that I'd go shopping with her today. I jumped out of the bed, took a quick shower and got dressed.

"Em!" I shouted as I saw my friend waiting for me at the busstation.
"Ah, there you are! I thought you weren't coming, although you promised.."
"I kinda overslept" I said and laughed akwardly. The bus arrived a few minutes later and then we headed off towards central.

"Yay, let's go shopping!" Emeline said happily as she got off the bus when we arrived in downtown. She loves to look for clothes and cute stuff in different stores while I rather go and look for some new CD releases by rock bands. We're quite the opposite but we're still so close. I've known her since elementary school and now we're in high school.

We usually went to Starbucks before going shopping but this time Emeline wanted to go to Victoria's Secret because there was sale on all the perfumes, and she had wanted to by one before, but she didn't because it was too expensive. And if Emeline thinks it's expensive, then it must be really expensive!
When we got there, it was really crowded and I just wanted to run outside instead of being squeezed in here. But I waited for her inside that huge crowd until she got a hold of that perfume. She bought it and when we walked out of there she was overjoyed by the purchase she just made.
"Look, Natalie! I got this for the half of its price..!" She said and hold up her bag in the air.
After that we went to Starbucks, but she said that we didn't have time to sit there so we had to buy coffee and take it with us because there was another sale on a clothes store..
But that time I waited outside because I didn't want to get squeezed in that crowd again. I stood outside the shop and drank my coffee when a group of girls where running towards the shop and somehow didn't see me and one of them bumped into me which led to that I accidentally bumped into a guy that was passing by.
"I'm sorry, sir!" I said and when I looked at him it felt like my heart skipped a beat. He seemed to be in my age, he had brown eyes, his hair was blonde and pretty messy, and he had a birthmark below his left eye. He was pretty tall too..and kind of hot.. I observed him a bit more and noticed a bruise on his left cheek. I wonder if he was punched by someone?
"Hey, watch we're you're going you chick!" He said arrogantly with a irish accent and then continued to walk down the street. I just stood there, stunned by his attitude. "What the hell was that?!" I though and became quite pissed off. I was cursing him in my mind when Emeline came out, done shopping.
"Let's go Natalie! You said you wanted to check if some rock band has released their new single, right?" She said and smiled at me.
"Yeah, let's go." I answered and smiled back. I shot a last glance in the direction where that guy walked and saw him turn around the corner before I went to the CD shop with my friend.
