Blake's POVcopyright protection4PENANAM7rjEketcS

It was now Friday and Soph hasn't spoken to me since Wednesday morning. I don't understand what has happened this time for her to stop talking to me. Well I must admit I am a huge asshole but we were just starting to make progress. Right now we were sitting at our table in the cafeteria. Soph was missing like usual and I had to sit next to horrid Stephanie. She seems to be putting more effect into trying to seduce me these past few days. I guess this would be Soph's doing. Olive sat down giving me a questionable look about the space next to me.copyright protection4PENANAokAGJTxHu2

"Where's Soph?"copyright protection4PENANAXMcLI3nzCx

"Your guess is as good as mine. She seemed fine when I left hers Wednesday morning but she hasn't spoken to me since"copyright protection4PENANALpEcIjxXMJ

"She let you stay? That's unusual"copyright protection4PENANAPb3qRNkouP

"What? Why?"copyright protection4PENANArrBDdkHBUj

"You got ass didn't you?"copyright protection4PENANA8FJNSs7ppU

Stephanie seemed to tense next me and back away from me a little bit. I stared at Billy who just sat down, most likely at the end of our conversation.copyright protection4PENANA8f5cGXZ0mu

"What makes you say that?"copyright protection4PENANAQNWrq9M7KG

"Hahahaha, omg the famous center has finally been deflowered"copyright protection4PENANArTmbHeDOD2

"Will you just shut up"copyright protection4PENANAIMiOYYLYZ7

"Shit she wasn't kidding"copyright protection4PENANALWc77TmKIZ

"Who?"copyright protection4PENANANrM6fK41J4

"Sophie"copyright protection4PENANA8bU4Acq8gU

Everyone shut up real quick and looked my way. Way to fucking go Stephanie. I didn't want this to get out and Sophie knew that.copyright protection4PENANAr1QD9XwvIe

"When did this happen?"copyright protection4PENANAvvFhBV2GWL

"Game"copyright protection4PENANAL5XG9ySAH9

"We haven't had a game this year yet"copyright protection4PENANAu8alLkjiQ1

I gave Slade a pointed look and his face lit up with what I meant. Gosh Olive wasn't kidding when she said these boys were daft.copyright protection4PENANAxlxdD98FQ5

"You could have won last year you fucking stud. What the hell is wrong with you? Wasn't she enough for you?"copyright protection4PENANArBbphkYaVF

"Who wasn't I enough for?"copyright protection4PENANAjpOuLAO4SE

Everyone turned and I looked to see a confused look on her face but she didn't look angry at all. This wasn't right. She was most definitely up to something for sure.copyright protection4PENANA6q0DEDNMjD

"Blake"copyright protection4PENANASLf3bxo9Hj

"Ha, your joking right. As if I'd sleep with Blake. I've been gone from the table for three days. What exactly are you telling these poor souls?"copyright protection4PENANAP1IDvudky6

"But he stayed"copyright protection4PENANAYExZibC5YW

"So what? He's been doing that since he moved here. You know girls can have guys as friends. What's with that look Olive?"copyright protection4PENANAIQHXTTui3c

"But he stayed. I don't even stay"copyright protection4PENANABSdkvJOJ3n

"Well that's because your mother can be a bit of a bitch Fuz. Move over Stephanie. I believe your in my spot"copyright protection4PENANAQ11n0kyDpw

*****copyright protection4PENANAz7nh5hbAze

"You alright?"copyright protection4PENANANa60uCKjmN

I had just showered and now I'm standing in front of a dazed looking Sophie. She said she would wait for me after practice but it looks like she isn't even here. copyright protection4PENANAGcOIAP29tr

"Yeah I'm fine"copyright protection4PENANAG3z3lFkwfU

I almost cringe at her choice of words. They were the last ones she said to me before we stopped speaking. She played with the tongue ring she got just before last year happened. Even though she looks the way people remember she's not the way I remember. Sure she's still gloomy but the whole goth phrase suited her very much. copyright protection4PENANAK34R4ztOSQ

"Thanks for lunch. I did get crucified for my so called lie"copyright protection4PENANABz3qhDgjMJ

"No problem. What are friends for right"copyright protection4PENANALsMkw7ZRDf

She gave a me a tight smile at the word friends. She has always wanted more than the friends with benefits that I've been giving her and she deserves so much better than me. I may have only just been deflowered as she called it but I play with hearts and emotions to get by with the virgin status. I never saw the need to sleep with girls. I never loved only played, with my victims, as my old best friend would say. When I moved here three years ago, the soccer team gracially took me what open arms but the boys on it gave me so much grief for my un laid status. They acted the way they though a teenage boy should act. When that witch found out, she would not take my constant no as an actual no. Even the boys told me to stay away from her.copyright protection4PENANALojQfnpJbi

"You still alright with me coming over?"copyright protection4PENANAzMRCd9gts2

She nodded and I took her hand pulling her off the stands. For a moment I held her close. for that moment all I wanted to do was take her away from this weekends memories. I wanted to take away everything bad that has happened to her and give her a new smile.copyright protection4PENANAcevZy16ySK

****copyright protection4PENANAOD87uouT7G

The weekend passed without a single party but I made sure I spent as long as Soph needed at her fathers tombstone. She smoked and drank until we needed a lift home. Eleanor was disappointed when she picked us up but she kept her mouth shut. When I rocked up at school the Monday morning, even with the heavy make up, she looked exhausted. I placed a soft hand on her shoulder and offered her a soft smile which she returned with a tight one. This moment Blake, she needs you know more than ever. Not caring where we were or who was watching, I cupped her face with my hand and gave her a soft kiss. She looked surprised when I pulled away.copyright protection4PENANAcHs4kGdA9G

"What was that for?"copyright protection4PENANADlU8ktar13

"Can't I just kiss you?"copyright protection4PENANAcQGkXaJs4R

"But you never do in public. What are you playing at?"copyright protection4PENANA8hzBlThyur

She squinted her eyes at me and poked me in the rib. I laughed, throwing my arm over her shoulder, walking us into the school.copyright protection4PENANAe7M8g7BqzD

"Just be quiet silly girl. Enjoy me not being a dick for once"copyright protection4PENANAtLta6rlPUq

And she laughed, the laugh she only shared for me.copyright protection4PENANAH3HgF29XAD
