Two months into, after he came to school as the new kid, I was sitting in the lunch room alone as always. When Mikael sat in front of me, with his food, he had three sandwiches, 2 bottle of Pepsi and grapes. While I only had a granola bar and grape juice. "You know that you eat more that the whole soccer team" I said as I watch him take a bite of one of his sandwiches.
"And you eat less than a bird" He said with his mouth full. I cringe my face with discus and rolled my eyes.
"You're icky" I said. He smiled and threw me a kiss making part his sandwich drop on his chin and shirt. I rolled my eyes once again and walked over to where he was and with a napkin I started cleaning him up. "You should know how to eat, you know, with your family being rich and all" I said.
"If I knew how to eat I wouldn't have you all the way here by side" He said. I raised my eyebrow and looked up at his face. He was no longer eating and he was smirking down at me.
"What is that suppose to mean?" I asked as I scoot away when I notice how close his face was from mine.
"That I like having you close" He said as he scooted closer.
"Oh, uh… ok?" I asked. I was totally weird out. Beside he was acting weird; he was also attracting attention to my table which I didn't want at all. "Uh… I got to go. I'll see you later" I said I stand up and walked away as fast as I could. I could feel my face heat up and my heart beating loudly in my chest.
I didn't know what was wrong with him. But I didn't have a good feeling about it. So, I ignored him for the rest of the day. Even if I tried hard not to think about it, I couldn't. I thought about it as I walked home. I had to take the long way so I wouldn't dump in to him on my way home.
When I got home, both Tiffany and Sidney were waiting for me in the front door. They were both glaring at me, like I had make her whole white clothe pink or I had talked to them in public. "We know what you're trying to do" Tiffany said.
"Yeah" Sidney said.
"Uh, and what is that?" I asked confuse.
"We know what you did to Mikael" Tiffany said. I raised my eyebrow, ok, now this was weird.
"And that is?"
"Tell her Sid" Tiffany said as she crossed her arms across her chest and glared at me.
"We know that you made some kind of weird Voodoo on him because you have a crush on him" Sidney said stupidly. I stared at both of them before laughing.
"You're kidding" I said.
"We're not kidding. And you better stop doing that because Mikael is mine!" Tiffany said as she walked closer to me.
"Well, if he is you're then it's not my problem" I said.
"But it is. Because you know that he liked me, so you did some kind spell on him making him like you. But he doesn't! He likes me! Me! Me! Me!" She yelled.
"Tiffany. As much as I enjoy guilt and see you flip out like you did now… I didn't do anything. Mikael and I are just friends" I explain. As I said this I knew my heart was breaking. I wanted him to like me, but I knew that, that wasn't possible, but I also knew that Mikael didn't like Tiffany I had asked him myself when we started talking.
"Whatever. Tonight I'm having a dinner date with all my family so you're not allowed to come out of your room" She said with a smirked. She turns around and flips her hair and walked away with Sidney behind her. I rolled my eyes and walked into my bed room.
"So much for liking Mikael" I thought.
It was 6 and I was in my room, in my bed like I was order to. The guest had arrived two hours ago. By the looks of it, Tiffany's date wasn't alone; he had brought his parents with him.
All of the sudden my stomach growled. I hadn't eaten anything in the whole day and I was starving. I decide to sneak in to the kitchen and grab something to eat and return to my bedroom they notice me. So I tiptoe quietly to the kitchen. Tiffany, Sidney and Tiffany were in the living room with the guest so I had no trouble getting to the kitchen.
I open the refrigerator and grab a chicken leg and heated up with a bottle of water and two big chocolate chip cookies. When I was done I tiptoe my way back to my bedroom. But when I was almost getting there I crash into someone's chest and fell on top of him. "Busted" I thought.
"Alexa?" A guys voice asked. To my surprise I knew he voice very well. I looked up and blink a couple of time to make sure I was seeing right.
Right in front of me, Mikael was staring back at me. "You're Tiffany's date?" I heard myself asked. My voice sounded cracked and broken.
"It isn't what you think" He said. I quickly stand up and started to walk away. I could feel the tear building up in my eyes treating me to fall, I couldn't let him see me cry but he stop me. "Alexa, please listen to me" He begged but I couldn't look at him.
"Alexa!! I told you to stay down in your room! You loser! Now you've ruin everything" I heard Tiffany yelled from beside us. I looked up to find Marcela and Sidney behind the very mad Tiffany; they were glaring at me as well. And behind them there were two more people, which I presume they were Mikael's parents.
"I'm sorry. I was just hungry" I said. I shove myself out of Mikael's grip and stared at Tiffany.
"Ugh! You're such a loser. I hate you" She yelled and slapped me across the face like she always did. I stumble back and landed on my butt. By now tear ran down my cheeks, while I bit my lip trying to hold back the sobs.
"I'm sorry" I whisper.
"Go to your room!" Marcela yelled. I only stand up and walk back to my bedroom. "I'm so sorry for her. She's my late husband daughter. We have to take care of her" I heard Marcela said with disgust.
"Alexa wait!" I heard Mikael yelled.
"Don't worry about her, she'll get over it" I heard Marcela said.
"Yeah, Mikael. Don't bother she's just a loser" Tiffany said. I could actually see her flipping her hair and acting like nothing happen.
"She's not a loser" He yelled. I heard steps running towards where I had gone and when I was about to close my door I saw Mikael appeared in the hallway. "Alexa. Please wait" He said but I closed the door. "Alexa, you have to let me explain" He begged.
"I understand. Please go back. I don't want to cause any more trouble" I said.
"Alexa, Please come out" He begged again.
"Mikael. Please leave!" I yelled. He was about to say something else when some other footsteps cut him off.
"Come on son. Let's get out of here" A male voice said.
"Ok Dad" I heard Mikael said and with that they left. I waited a couple of minutes; pray they hadn't leaved because if they did, I was in for hell. The house was silent and then I heard a car drive off. "Shit" Then I heard Tiffany's angry yell. Her scream could be heard all around the house. And then I heard Marcela stomping down to my room with her keys in hand ready to open my door. I quickly flew away from door and ran to find a hiding place.
I was ready to get in my closet when Marcela open the door. The scream of Tiffany was louder now even if she was in her room and Marcela was glaring at me with a leather belt on her hand. My eyes winded with nothing but fear. I knew what was coming. I turn around once again and tried to get myself inside my small closet but Marcela was faster and took a good grip of my hair and shove me out. She made me kneel beside my bed, still holding my hair while tear ran down my cheek and started hitting me as much as she could with belt.
My screams of pain drown Tiffany's whinny yells but Marcela still wouldn't stop. She kept hitting me where ever there belt hit, and it wasn't long until I black out.
