"This. Is. Never. ENDING!!" I screamed at the clock.
"Oh, come on, Nicole..." Hannah glared at me.
She tossed the basketball in the hoop, which hit the rim and flew off to the side. PE was never Hannah's best class, she always thought she was the best. And everyone else thought otherwise.
"It's only the 3rd week of school." Tristain yelled while retrieving the ball.
"I haven't checked my phone in like... 5 hours." I sighed.
"So then check it, it's not like the teacher cares."
We both looked at the teacher who was staring at the ground.
"You're right." I walked passed her into the locker room.
"So have you heard from Nick?" Tristain asked me.
"Not since he left.. Like 4 weeks ago, but Lemmie check." I pulled out my phone and right that very second Nick was calling me.
"HEY." I answered.
"Hi." He said softly. He usually sounded more excited.
"Just about to go on stage, but umm, can I talk to you for a minute?" He asked.
My heart sunk like a ship. How did I know what was going to happen?
"...S-s-sure.." I walked out the back doors and sat in the cold fall air.
"I haven't talked to you in weeks. And I can't stand us not being together... It's tearing out my heart. I think we'd be a lot better if... you know.." He said.
"You're not really doing this.. are you?" I asked.
I heard him sigh on the other end of the phone. "Well.."
"Well fine then. If that's what you want." A small tear fell from my eye.
"It is. I want you to come visit me." He said cheerfully.
"WHAT?!" I stood up.
"How in the world could I break up with you?!" Nick teased.
"I was wondering.." I smiled.
"So, do you think you can?" He asked.
"Of course! I have to go," I looked at Hannah and Tristain waving at me to come back inside. "I'll call you, tonight?"
"Kay. I love you." He said.
"I love you too." I hung up and ran back inside.
"Gawd it's freezing out there." Hannah said as she flipped her scarf around her neck.
"Why did I need to come inside?!" I asked.
"Guess who is back!?" Tristain jumped up and down.
"SHANE!" Hannah and Tristain yelled at the same time running into the hallway, I followed them.
Shane Hansen. The ONLY other boy who I ever loved besides, Nick. He broke up with me about 3 years ago when he had to move to New York.
I saw a group of people standing around him, his brown hair flipped across his face and his beautiful eyes met mine and he smiled and walked over.
"Nicole!" He yelled as he opened his arms for a hug.
I hugged him. "Hey, Shane!"
"I missed you so much! New York isn't worth it." He stated.
"Worth what?" I asked.
"Worth being away from you." He flirted with me.
"HUH?" My face wrinkled.
He pulled me aside, "Remember? You promised if I came back, You'd love me forever."
My heart beat. "About that..."
"What." He said.
"Uhhh.... Here!" I pulled out my backpack a magazine titled "Tiger Beat" and handed to him.
"Whats this?" He stared at the magazine.
His eyes scanned the paper and his face slowly melted. "Wow, Nicole."
I shrugged and played with Nick's necklace. Shane watched.
"I really thought you would wait for me.. Cause I waited for you." He shook his head and walked away.
I watched him walk away flawlessly. I remembered how much I ever liked him. I could only say that him walking back into my life was a sign, but I'm not sure what for.
"Do you know how popular you'd be if you dated him!?" Hannah paced back and forth.
"Um yeah, remember.. he's my ex." I stated.
She nodded and sipped her smoothie.
Tristain yawned and put her head in her hands. "I think this is so stupid."
"WHY?" Me and Hannah yelled at her.
"Well, Nicole, you're with Nick. I don't even understand how you could even think about being with Shane again." She said.
I stared at her and looked at the ground. "I, I know. And I'm nawt thinking about Shane. Especially because I'm going to Argentina to see Nick!" I announced.
The girls immediately stood up and started screaming and freaking out.
I was so excited, too. But, I couldn't stop thinking about Shane. And I knew that wasn't a good sign.
