A few days after my birthday and it was valentines day, the most pointless day of the year. A lot had happened in the past few days, Jeremy and Jennifer had dated for a day and then split up, Ryan had shouted at me for not talking to Dan (seriously?! I was the one trying to talk to him) and then yesterday Jeremy had expresses his love towards me. The day Jen broke up with him he inboxes me on Facebook telling me, "You're my one true love, I can't be without you! If I don't have you then I will be a virgin until I'm 36!", it's fair to say I've classed him as a freak.
But as I said, valentines day. The stupidest day of the year. Why would you spend money on a pointless gift that means "I love you" when you can say it for FREE? I'd told Dan not to buy me anything, I sure as hell wasn't getting him anything. We were still barely a couple!
Oh well at least I have the trip today with...
Oh great Dan and Jeremy are going to be there and probably sitting together, behind me. Kill me now!
ON THE BUS
"Fuck off Jeremy"
Jeremy had been attacking me on the whole bus journey, he just had to sit behind me.
"Ha, touched your boob. Again!"
Why wasn't Dan saying anything?! He was sitting behind me laughing his stupid fucking head off.
"Dan do something! You are letting your friend TOUCH ME!"
"What am I supposed to say?"
Really?! That's what he comes back with.
"Do you know what it is Dan, just fuck off. If Ryan were here you'd say something! You obviously don't care"
I turned to Hozzie who was sitting right next to me, she was giving me a very sympathetic look.
"He's not worth it. Come on Shefford cheer up!"
Everyone called me Shefford, especially at dance. I think it started with my singing teacher calling me Shefford and my sister Mini Shefford or it may have been Katie, she used to call me it quite a lot. How it spread to my friends I will never know. Just then I felt a tap on my knee, I turned to see who the knee tapping culprit was only to meet eyes with Gerard.
"Just ignore Jeremy, we will get him if he ever does that to you again. I promise"
Frank felt obliged to join in the conversation, so he practically pushed Gerard against the window.
"Yeah, I may be a midget but at least I can bite his knee caps"
"Thanks guys, oh by the way Frank I moustache you a question but I'll shave it for later"
Gerard and Hozzie erupted with laughter as Frank turned, giving me an evil look.
"I DON'T EVEN HAVE A MOUSTACHE!"
Well that trip was crap, all we did was look at a presentation and then read. I can do that at school! It's probably going to help me in...
Who am I kidding?! That wasn't going to help me! I feel sorry for Shakespeare, he managed to make about 30 kids in one room fall asleep.
I've made sure that we aren't sitting in front of Dan and Jeremy. The dick heads. I'd been talking to Hozzie, Gerard and Frank on the way back, I didn't know them well enough to judge them when I first met them but they seem cool.
"So Chloe, what concerts have you been to?"
I hadn't been to many concerts, most of them were X Factor concerts that my Dad took me to, I'm so sad.
"Umm well my stepdad took me to Kings of Leon at the stadium last month"
"Cool, I was there too! What others have you been to? Me and Frank have been to loads with our parents"
Parents? Do they take their parents with them? They don't seem like those type of people. There's no point in lying, I might as well tell the truth.
"Just ones like Girls Aloud and the X Factor tour"
I could see it in their faces, Frank looked like he could explode at any second.
"Girls ... ALOUD?! OH MY GOD! GEE HOLD ME"
"Hey it's not that bad!"
"Really?! You should come to a concert with me and Gee one time! We are going to Escape the Fate next month if you want to come?"
"Yeah, my cousin, Brooke asked me to go but that's really not my type of music or crowd"
It's true, I was one of those people who would just sit at the back and go on my phone. I doubt I would be able to get into that type of music, my stepdad played things like ACDC and Metallica in the car. I sing along to stuff like that, they're catchy.
"Well just think about it, here is my number if you change your mind. Give me a call sometime or something?"
Has Gerard just gave me his number?! Me? Dan is not going to like this, I watched as Gerard scribbled his number onto a scrap piece of paper handing it to me not long after.
"So you will call me tonight?"
Why was I suddenly feeling like this?
Before I could speak Frank butted in the conversation.
"You could come out on Saturday with me, Gerard, my girlfriend Emily and her sister Charlotte"
"She'd love to!"
I looked behind to find the culprit of me somehow going out only to see Hozzie smiling at me.
"You're welcome Sheff!"
