That Was Torture
"We fall out of line."
Drew and I ran upstairs to shower. Casey and Ace were going to
Ace's house to shower. Once I was out of the shower, I got
dressed in an outfit Drew picked for me. It was yellow denim
shorts with a blue cami. It was simple but really cute. I picked
out white shorts and a plaid cami with a mini white sweater for
Drew. I french braided my hair and clipped my bangs back. Drew
scrunched her hair and straightened her bangs. We walked
downstairs and the guys were already there. "You guys are
quick." I said slipping on my Ed Hardy's. Drew slid on
her shoes and we walked out the door. I was hand-in-hand with
Casey. We started walking when we saw a few younger kids playing
with a blue bouncy ball. "Drew. Do you remember when we used
to run around and throw a ball like that at random windows?"
I asked her and she started cracking up. So did Casey and Ace.
"You guys did that?" Casey asked us as we continued
walking. "Yea. When you had mono we did that after we left
your house." By that time we were at the park. I looked
around and saw a bunch of people, including the football team,
which also included Gustavo. I ignored them and so did everyone
else. "Is that why I lost my bouncy ball?" Casey asked
us. I looked at Drew and we both ran away. We ran up a hill and
around the playground a few times. I looked at Drew and we were
both laughing like crazy. Then I looked behind me and the guys
were right around the corner. Just then, I ran into someone and
fell down. I was rubbing my head and I saw a hand. "I'm
so sorry." A guy my age said. I have never seen him before
though. "It's fine. My fault I wasn't paying
attention." I said taking his hand helping me up. He had
black hair with blonde tips and dark blue eyes. "I'm
Carter. I just moved here from upstate." He said smiling.
"I'm Harmony and this is Drew." I said pointing to
Drew. "And I'm Casey. Harmony's boyfriend."
Casey said putting his hands on my shoulders. "I'm
Ace." Ace said obviously noticing some tension already
forming. "I'll see you arouund Harmony." Carter
said, winked and walked away. Casey was squeezing my shoulders.
"Casey. Stop your hurting me." I said in pain. He let
go of my shoulders. "Sorry Har." He said and kissed my
cheek. I just nodded and walked over to Drew and Ace. Was he
always going to get like this? I mean he was squeezing my
shoulders really hard over a guy we bareley know. I don't
know if it would make sense to other people, but it does to me.
"You okay Har?" Drew asked me bringing me back to
reality. "Oh yeah. I'm fine." I said. Casey took my
hand and squeezed it gently. I looked up at him and he had a
questioning look on his face. I just nodded and started watching
a butterfly flying around. "Let's go walk around a
little more." Drew said. We all nodded and stood up facing
away from the school. We brushed off all of the dirt from our
legs and clothes and looke down the hill we were
on. Suddenly, I feel hands on my back and before I knew it,
I was rolling down the hill, heading towards a concrete,
basketball court. The last thing I remember was hearing laughter
from one person and then a bunch of people surrounding me, before
I blacked out.
