Hayley's old friend returns!
Man! It's so bloody hot today! I actually flinched when I opened my curtains because the sun is so damn bright! I pulled on a pair of distressed denim shorts with some black TOMS and a grey Pierce The Veil vest top. I tied up my hair 'cause there's no way i'm leaving it down in this heat.
My phone started ringing as I was dancing around, something I usually do until I bump into something or someone! I picked up my phone expecting it to be Ryan or Emma but I read "Unknown Number" on the screen. Strange.
"Hello" I hesitantly answered.
"Hayley?" I heard the strangely familiar voice question.
"Yeah! The one and only"
"It's been way to long! Wait how'd you get my number! We haven't spoken in ages!"
"Yeah well I live here now so I asked around like a completely non-stalker-y person and got your number!!I was wondering if you wanted to meet up today?"
"Okay, one non-stalker-y is not a word, two I want to know what that person thought when they gave you my number and three of course I do! I'll meet you at the mall/shopping centre (what we call it where i live) in an hour! Meet me at the fountain in the middle!"
"Sure Lee! I'll see you then!"
I quickly saved his number.
I haven't seen Brian in person since I left England! Sure we talked Skype a few times ages ago when we first moved here and i've talked to him on Facebook and Twitter a few times but I haven't seen the guy who was my best friend in ten years. It's been way to long! I heard he moved to Arizona or something months after we did so the connection was lost even more.
I was interrupted from my train of thought by my phone ringing again.
"Hey Hayls, I was wondering if you wanted to do something today?"
"Ry, I can't, I'm really sorry but my old best friend from England just moved here and I've kinda made plans with him! Sorry!"
"Nah it's okay i'll hang out with Brendon or somethin'...Wait him!?"
"Yeah, Brian. Have I not told you about him?"
"Nope! But anyway, i'll talk to you later."
"Yeah definitely! I'll text you 'kay."
"Yeah no problem. Bye."
After the call had ended I stared at my phone for a few seconds feeling like complete crap. I took a deep breath and then thought that if he was really upset about it he would've said something right?
I looked at the clock and realised I had to leave like now. I grabbed my Vans backpack and legged it to the mall/shopping centre.
I sat down on the edge of the fountain managing no to get wet from the spray when I spotted him walking towards me. I think it was him anyway but my suspicions were confirmed when he called my name. He was wearing black skinny jeans, a white t-shirt and a denim jacket. His sandy blonde/fair/light brown hair was perfectly styled/gelled/quiffed? I wasn't really sure but this wasn't the little boy I remembered. He's changed a lot and It's definitely in a good way looks wise (not that i'd date him. I've got Ryan and i'm perfectly happy an plus it would just be really weird. Ew.)
I jumped up and ran towards him.
"You've changed so much!"
"Haha yeah but I could say the same for you. What happened to the girl in the dresses and skirts with her hair that wasn't blue in pigtails!?" He joked.
"Hah! She grew up and discovered who she really was! And what about you the child in dungarees who was obsessed with dinosaurs and cars!?"
"Hah! I guess the same happened to me!"
"You can't just steal my answer Bri."
He smiled and looked around.
"So you wanna go mess around in shops?"
"I though you'd never ask Brian."
We messed around the shops for a while trying on basically everything and anything we could. We did buy things too though! We didn't just annoy the shop workers for nothing. We both got a lot of stuff actually. A lot more than what I would normally buy. Band shirts, jeans, jackets, wristbands and Brian made me buy a dress. Well two dresses actually. Shocker. The first one had a dark grey t-shirt material top with no sleeves and a sheer/chiffon bottom which stopped above my knees a bit. The second one was just a long dark grey t-shirt but it went in at the waist and then out into a skirt so it was more flattering on my body as the shop assistant said. I didn't ask for their opinion. Casual enough. It stopped a right bit above my knees and I liked it because I could still wear converse or vans with it. There was no way I was wearing heels. No way! I didn't mind the dresses too much because they weren't too girly or anything. At least they weren't pink. I made one more stop to buy numerous colours of hair dye before we headed to get some milkshakes.
The local place in here did any flavour of milkshake you wanted. I ordered a skittle milkshake whilst Brian ordered a marshmallow flavoured one. We grabbed a table and talked about old times.
"Remember when I was pushed off of the slide and and you threw your dinosaurs and the boys who did it."
"Haha yeah! You made me lose my Stegosaurus that day."
"Really that's what you're worried about. I saved your ass when they chased you after."
We both laughed and continued laughing until we were interrupted by the two people I never like interacting with. Megan and Derek. They were making a habit of interrupting me.
"Oh look Derek..She's got a new man going. Where's your little Ryan today." Megan sneered.
I looked down at the table which had all of a sudden became very interesting. I glanced up at Brian who was looking a me with curiosity and sadness in his eyes.
I gathered up my courage not wanting Brian to see me like this.
"For your information Megan he's hanging out with his friends because unlike you i'm not clingy and I don't need to be scratching at his arm at every second."
"Well you just might want to watch out because he could be with someone a lot hotter than you right now."
Dumb ass. She was trying to imply that it was her when she clearly was here. The bleach from her hair has gone through to her brain.
"Uh Megan if you're trying to imply that it was you, you really need to re-think that as you are standing here attempting to insult me and then implying that you are with Ryan. You can't be in two places at once you do know that right?"
I saw confusion pass through her eyes which was soon replaced with anger.
"Well..Uhh...HMPHH!" She stamped her foot and stormed off.
Derek follwed her but not before whispering in my ear.
"Better watch out Hayley..We know your little friends would hate something bad to happen."
I glared at him until he left the shop. I blew out a breath. What could he mean.
Brian gently took my hand and led me out when we had finished. I smiled at him and decided to push what Derek said out of my head as it really made no sense and I invited Brian over to stay.
We watched movies, played games and played around for most of the night until we fell asleep. Man, I missed him. It's nice for him to be back. I'll introduce him to everyone tomorrow. I'm sure they'll like him.
I texted Ryan goodnight. I really missed him today. He texted me back instantly and we ended up talking for about half and hour before we both fell asleep. We agreed to hang out just the two of us tomorrow and I can't wait. I fell asleep with a smile on my face.
So yeah! This probably sucks! The rest of the characters will be back in the next chapter I promise! Thanks again if you read it!
