I nibbled on my turkey sandwich, as I reviewed the notes I took this morning in chemistry.
The library was pitch quiet, as usual, since I was the only one who stayed in the library during lunch hours.
I didn't see a point in eating in the lunch room, since I would sit alone, as everyone pointed and whispered things about me.
Suddenly, the chair across from me scrapped.
My eyes flickered up cautiously, as Hunter leaned agaisnt the table, giving me a sly grin.
I was still pretty flushed from our intense moment this morning.
I could still feel his hand burning on my wrists, as he pressed his body agaisnt mine, forcing me to look up at his blazing blue eyes.
Immediately, my eyes narrowed away from his.
"I was looking for you at lunch." he spoke.
I felt my palms getting sweaty, as I gulped.
"O-oh." I stuttered, still avoiding the sharp look in his eyes.
"Why do you come to the library during lunch?" he pressed.
Because of your idiotic friends.
"I-I just need to study. I'm falling behind in my classes." I lied.
It wasn't true, honestly.
Not that I was trying to brag, but I had a perfect 4.0 GPA.
But, I needed a good excuse to tell Hunter.
"I should join you more often. I'm not so good in chemistry, either." he smiled, taking a short glance at my notes.
I twisted my lips, sighing in defeat.
"Yeah, you should." I muttered, trying not to sound too sarcastic.
Suddenly, his hand came in contact with my cheeks, brushing a loose strand of hair behind my ears.
"Why do you put your hair up all the time?" he said, gesturing towards my messy bun.
I swallowed, as I I blushed from insecurity.
"I-I didn't mean it like that!" he suddenly defended, noticing my flushed face.
I bit my lip, as I shook my head. "No, don't apologize. I understand."
Hunter shook his dark hair out of his face, smacking himself on the forehead.
"What I meant was," he paused, "you have really nice hair. I'm just curious to see what it would look like if it was down."
That didn't help, at all.
I could feel my cheeks becoming into an unpleasant shade of scarlet red.
Hunter groaned. "I should shut up now, shouldn't I?"
A small smile appeared from my face, as I bit my lip down to avoiding it from spreading wider.
"Yeah." I softly spoke.
Hunter's rosy lips curved, as his eyes began to light up.
The warning bell suddenly rang, as my eyes glanced towards the clock.
I began to gather all of my stuff, pushing myself off the chair.
"Are you going to class now? Do you want me to walk you?" Hunter offered.
I shook my head. "No, thanks."
Hunter frowned, as his eyebrows furrowed together in disappointment.
The class bell started to ring, as I began to speed walk out of the library.
My next English class was two floors up from here!
"I've got to go." I muttered, as I brushed by Hunter swiftly.
Hunter held my wrists, as he turned me around.
A familiar burning sensation shot up my spine, as my cheeks turned bright red.
"Do you think we could hang out after school today?" he smoothly asked.
I tensed, as my shoulders went stiff and square.
"M-maybe." I stuttered.
Hunter gave me a small smile, before releasing my arm.
"I'll wait for you out at the parking lot." he said.
I hesitantly nodded, as I began to sprint to class.
I weaved my way through a crowd of people, as they all turned and gave me dirty looks.
As I took a seat in English just in time, the teacher began her lesson for the day.
Midway through class, chatter began to fill the room while the teacher was out printing worksheets.
A few girls who I recognized stormed up to my desk, placing their manicured nails flat out.
"Hi, Hayden, right?" a fiery red head asked.
I stared up at her, trying to hide my fear, as I nodded weakly.
She snickered, tossing her hair over her shoulder.
She smiled, as her over glossed lips stretched across her face into a fake, and painful smile.
"Nice you meet you, I'm Maddi.So, we were all just wondering," she pointed to her two followers behind her. "What were you doing with Hunter this morning?"
I stared at her blankly, before giving her a slight shrug.
I saw her icy blue eyes twitch, as they became full of envy and rage.
"Well, whatever it was, I want you to stay away from him. Or, you'll pay the consequences, okay?"
I removed eye contact with her, as I sulked down in my seat.
The teacher returned, as she urged the girls to go back to their seats.
Maddi threw me a smirk, before sitting down with firm posture in her seat.
