Ch. 5 We Used to be Friends

"Gosh, Jessica, hurry up" I heard Noah groan from downstairs. It's been two weeks since the whole friendship thing started. Noah would hang out with me every other day, being that he also hung out with his other friends. He would tell me that it was sort of an obligation, since they took him in when he first got here. A lot of none sense if you ask me. And so, now I dragged myself out of the shower and quickly changed into a pair of skinny jeans, black v neck, and some old red ballet flats I had. Noah invited me bowling tonight and after I rejected his invitations numerous times, the fact that he kept asking made me give in to him and say yes. I brushed my brown hair as fast as possible and went downstairs. Noah sat in the couch and when he heard me come down he turned around and stood up. "Finally" said Noah. He looked me up and down and smiled.

"What?" I questioned. I grabbed a brown satchel and my keys and walked over to Noah.

"Nothing" He said with a smirk. I brushed him off and locked my house. Noah had a car, and a nice car at that. It was a sleek black BMW. He opened the door for me and I swiftly got in. The drive to the bowling alley was really funny, we sang along to the songs we knew, complained about the lame music artists that there were now, made fun of each other etc. It was very refreshing, having someone to talk to.

"And then that night, when we got to the club, I showed the bouncer my ID and he let me in" I continued telling Noah.

"So you got in just like that?" Noah asked as we entered the bowling alley. As soon as we got in there were game stations set up. Candy machines and a pool table nearby. Neon red lights flashed everywhere, darkness looming over us,and the sound of game music played.

"Just like that" I assured him with a big smile. I was very proud of that experience, it's not everyday you are able to get in to an 18 and over club at 15.

"Hello, welcome to Lucky Strike" A cheery blonde girl that seemed my age said. Her curly locks bounced up and her blue eyes lit up as soon as she saw Noah.

"Hi, canI have size9 and a size-" Noah then turned to me and tapped my shoulder, I was too busy looking at the tv screen they had directly above us "Jessica what's your shoe size?"

"6 1/2"

"And a 6 1/2"

"My pleasure" I heard the girl respond.

"You know Noah, I suck at bowling" I lied. The first time I went bowling with Lucas I told him the same thing and in the end of the night I was the winner.

"You do, aye" I nodded quickly and then turned to the girl that came back with our shoes. "Well I can't say I don't believe you"

"Hey, what is that supposed to mean" I told him and punched his arm playfully.

"How many rounds will you be purchasing?" The blonde asked.

"A round of twelve" he responded. He paid and we started walking to our designated lane. You could hear the pounding of the bowling balls as they were thrown on the lane, and the pins falling. "Here it is" We sat down at the table near and took of our shoes and put on our bowling ones.

"Ugh, these shoes are so lame. They look like clown shoes, and they make me look funny" I complained as I looked down at them.

"Yeah but you look cute in them" I looked to him and smiled. He must be lying but I can understand if he wants this to be a good experience for me. We went to go pick out the bowling balls and I decided to get a light one like a 6 pound one.

"Noah!" I heard a girly voice yell. I looked up along with him and searched for the voice. It was....Brandy? When I realized it was her my eyes wandered around her. And guess who was entering the place. Lucas. Lucas and his stupid possy. Alyssa, Brandy, John, Patrick, Amy and Cassie. People I despised for being so damn annoying. They were cocky, popular, and well that's about all the not-so-bad things I have to say about them.

"Look whose here" Noah whispered to me. Brandy came over to us and smiled at Noah.

"Noah, what a coincidence. We didn't know you were going to be here. I called you though. Three times" She said in her high pitchced voice.

"I guess I had my phone off"

"Mind if we join you"

"Well I was here with Jessica" He said coyly

"Oh." She said and finally turned to acknowledge me. She wore the shorted mini skirt and high heels. A tight tank top and wore a lot of make up. Her hair was obviously straightened and dyed blonde. "Well, she can join too"

"Excuse me? I was here--"

"Jessica" Noah told me "Mind if Italk to her for a sec" He told Brandy. He gently took my arm and we walked away from her. "Don't get all worked up, she was just playing"

"Playing my ass" Itold him angrily. Brandy was the dumbest and most annoying person in the whole world and we were stuck with her.

"I guess we're going to have to hang out with them for a while" He said regretfully.

"No!" I said remembering Lucas was with them. "No, we can't. I don't want to"

"They aren't that bad" said Noah. I looked behind him and saw Lucas heading our way with his arm around Alyssa's shoulders. Noah noticed I was looking somewhere else and turned around to see exactly what had caught my attention. "Oh. It's the guy you like"

"I don't like him" I said harshly.


"Nothing. I think I'm going to leave" I told him.

"No, wait I'm sorry" He said and grabbed my arm "Don't leave me with these people." He pouted and made the cutes puppy dog face ever. I laughed at his desperateness.


"Hey Noah" Patrick said and they did the handshake all guys do.

"Hey Pat"

"Noah my man!" said John "Didn't know you were going to be here"

"I didn't know you were going to be here" he told him.

"So do you guys want to get started?" asked Patrick as he typed everyone's name and then appeared on the screen. Surprisingly he knew my name, and no one had to tell him. Everyone said some kind of yes and then we all picked our balls. There were two tables of four available for us and we all sat down. I only talked to Noah seeing as that he was the only one I wanted to talk too. But Bandy and Amy sat with us and they had the unfortunate need to talk to him while we had a conversation.

"I guess we'll see if you're actually bad or not" Noah told me as Patrick was the first to go.

"I told you I was--"

"She's not actually bad, that's just a lie she tell people to catch them off guard" Lucas spoke up and both Noah and I turned to him, who sat in the table next to us. Noah turned to me and raised his eyebrow.

"Really, now" He said. I glared at him for a while and I could see him smirk. "How does he know that?" Noahwho sat in front of me leaned in closer and whispered to me.

"Because they used to be friends" Brandy said and cuddled up to him.

"This is and A and B coversation so mind your own business." I told her and pointed to Noah and I

"I see you are still bitter about the whole ordeal" she giggled.

"Ordeal?" Noah asked clearly confused. He didn't know that Lucas and I were friends, but no, thanks to Brandy, he now knew.

"Noah your turn" John called to him. Before he stood up he eyed me curiously and went for his ball.

"Stop talking about this, alright" I told Brandy.

"Touchy, touchy" she said and joined Amy in a different conversation. When Noah came back it was my turn. Icould feel everyone'seyes on me. They all knew about Lucas and I. And I'm sure Lucas probably told them I was some psycho freak. I reached for my ball got up to the lane and took a deep breath. Iswung the ball back and forth until I found my center. When I finally did I pulled the back far back and swun forward gaining momentum. It rolled fiercely and knocked down all the pins. I could hear Noah's cheers and Patrick's. The screen above us displayed the word STRIKE with a bunch of animated pins dancing.

"Yes!" I said and walked away from the lane. As soon as I sat down Iheard Lucas say 'Told you' to Noah but I ignored him.

" you are actually an amazing bowler"

"I try" I said and shrugged. Noah laughed and he didn't mention the subject before.

We were in round seven when I really had to go to the bathroom. Iexcused myself (well to Noah) and let for the bathroom. The bathroom was as cool as the bowling alley. It was illuminated by a wonderful chandelier with bowling pins and the stalls were huge! The floor was red rug, but it didn't look tacky at all, instead it looked very funky and fun. When I was done using it, I washed my hands and grabbed paper towels to dry them. I walked over two the door which had a bowling ball as a handle and opened it.

"Jessica" Lucas said. He stood leaning on the wall with his hands in his pockets.

"Lucas?" I said automatically, the shock of seeing him there getting to me. "Since when do you use the girls bathroom" I walked past him but he grabbed my arm. He crashed me on the wall and kissed me forcefully. Although I didn't know why he was doing this I didn't stop him. I opened my mouth for his tongue and he pushed it in. Our tongues exploring one another's and it felt nice. He sucked on my bottom lip and I on his top lip. But when I reality hit, I pulled away. "What's with the kissing?" I asked him

"What's with you and Noah?" He asked back. He didn't let go of me and I was still with my back to the wall.

"What's with you and Alyssa?"

"What's with--Okay stop"

"You stop" I said and he groaned.

"You were always so stubborn"

"And you an idiot"

"Okay cut it out Jess" He looked away form my eyes and gave me a peck on the lips.

"Lucas," I said and shoved him off. "What are you doing? With me here?"

"I don't know, I just knew I had to"

"You are so...weird sometimes"

"Ugh I know I don't know what I just did. I take it back" That hurt me, because he regretted the kiss, but even though I didn't understand it, I didn't regret it. "I'm so stupid! I love Alyssa"


"What did I just do" He said realization hitting him. "And with you"

"Okay...." Are you done insulting me dumbass. "Well I have to go" I told him and left. I sat back down in front of Noah and continued talking. I saw Lucas come back , but I tried not to pay attention to him. Whatever he was on, I didn't want it. What ever second thoughts he was having I'm sure was just he was becoming bored with Alyssa.

I was just his new adventure for the week andI couldn't fight the flattery that came with it. Because even though I hated him, a part of me still loved him.
