A/N: sorry guys, this chapter is a little plain, just to explain a few things XD
Chapter 4 - OH DEAR GOD!

My mind was running around crazy as Hope told me the story of how she
was in love with someone other than Benson. She told me of how they
met last year over an Internet chat room. He lived in Brisbane and we
lived on the Gold coast.
He was the first guy she had ever loved, but she didn't know if he
felt the same. When he told her that he was moving to the Gold coast
she was so excited, but there was another problem. Benson. She hadn't
told him that she was dating Benson and she had kept this other guy a
secret from all of us.
 
I felt bad for my friend, I really did, but there was just a feeling
deep in the pits of my stomach telling me that maybe this wasn't so
bad. I knew that Benson loved Hope and he was planning to tell her
sometime this week, but if she broke up with him he would be crushed.
I pushed my feelings aside knowing that it was for the best.
 
We sat in complete silence, watching the waves wash up on the sand. I wriggled my toes through the soft, cold sand and sighed.
 
“What should I do?” Hope asked breaking the silence.


 “Well, you only have 2 choices. Benson or… the other guy” I told her in complete honesty, only just realising that she hadn’t mentioned his name.
She sighed once more before replying. “I love Benson with all my heart… but –“ I cut her off.
“Let love speak its own words then. There shouldn’t be any ‘buts’ what so ever” she nodded and I stood up. I stuck my hand out and pulled her up. “Let’s go get some ice-cream then”
“Lets” she agreed linking her arm through mine and plastering a smile on her face, now that that was all sorted.
 
After we got the ice-cream, we headed to my place to have a chick-flick marathon night. We ended up watching notebook, valentines day and a Cinderella story, before falling asleep halfway through titanic.
We awoke the next morning already half an hour late for school.
“Hope! Get up, were late! School has started!” I jumped out of bed and quickly got changed into the school uniform. Hope was still heavily sleeping in bed so I ran up to the edge of the mattress on jumped right on top of her.
 
“Okay! I’m awake. Get off me you fat lump!” she yelled jokingly.
I got off her and continued getting ready. In about ½ an hour we were at school, just in time for first lunch. Isn’t it amazing how fast you can get ready when you are in a rush? I laughed completely dazed for a moment, when I saw griffin on his way over to us with Benson.
 
I looked over a hope and noticed that she was as shocked as I was.
“Hey girls” Benson greeted us with a huge grin. He leaned over and puckered his lips at Hope, who wasn’t at all interested in kissing him. “Okay then… Rope and Row, meet griffin and griffin meet Hope and Row” he announced excitedly.
“griffin.” I mumbled
“Weena.” He grinned back.
I looked at Hope, who still had that same shocked expression plastered on her face. What was up with her? Was it possible that she knew griffin?
“Okay then… so…-“I cut Benson off,
“What is he doing here?” I growled.
“Oh, um, he wants to hang out with us”
“WHAT!” both me and Hope yelled at the same time.
 
We all turned to face Hope and she looked to the ground. They all knew I didn’t like new groupies – previous experience, but this was new for Hope.

Then a thought came to mind………. OH DEAR GOD! …………………………………….
