LAUREN'S POV

It's Saturday night and everyone's planned to go to the movies except me "Why won't you just stop being stubborn and come?" Hayden was pestering me "I don't want to watch Couples Retreat, I already planned to go and watch Final Destination in 3D." I emphasised on the 3D part. "That's a bloody movie, not like you're going to watch it with a guy." I smiled "That's the point." Jake made his way towards us "I heard you aren't going to the movies with us tonight." I folded my arms "Is it like in some newspaper or something that I'm not going, what's the big deal?" Jake crossed his arms over my shoulder "When we're gone, what are you going to be doing?" I pulled his arm away from my shoulder and turned to face him "I'll be watching Final Destination." His smile turned upside down "Wait, you're going to watch Final Destination and I have to watch Couples Retreat, f*** that, I'm coming with you." "Um...no you're not, what about the girl you're supposed to take to the movies." He smirked "She can wait, after all we're not dating." And he left and I turned to Hayden who was quiet the whole time "Great, now it's just four of us going, thanks alot." She stormed off, although I knew she could never get angry at me.

I was heading to the cafeteria when I bumped into someone and I looked up it was Brian, the guy in my Music class "Hey Brian." I had a crush on him but I didn't want to ruin the friendship we already had. "Where have you been, I've been looking all over for you, I need you to help me complete this song I'm writing." We went to a nearby table and sat "Can I see it?" He brought out a piece of paper from his pocket, I took it and read it, it was all about a guy trying to get a girl's attention, I looked at him "Is this about you?" He smiled "No, I don't need to try to get a girl's attention." Yep, and there was that big ego of his but he's funny like that. "Right! Um...I'll see what I can do cuz I'm busy today." He smiled and stood up "Thanks." I saw Tyler making his way towards my table and I quickly tried to stand up but my stupid shirt got caught in a nail on the edge of the chair "Are you serious?" He finally came to me "Why are you always trying to escape when you see me?" I laughed "I'm not escaping, I'm trying to ignore you." He sat down opposite me "So who are you going with tonight." I gave him a confused look "The movie? Tonight? Couples Retreat?" I mouthed an 'oh' "Well, I'm not going with you guys, I'm watching Final Destination with Jake." He looked mad or was that just me "Are you guys secretly dating or what?" "How is it any of your business." He leaned on his chair "For starters, he's my brother and I don't think it's proper to date your brother's ex, do you?" I leaned forward "You know what Tyler, who I date is none of your buisness, understand?" My shirt finally made it out of the nail and I stood up, I heard something, I turned and saw Nicole and I looked at Tyler "By the way, a member of the pussycat dolls is making her way here." I turned around and left.

It was 8pm and we were all in front of the movie theatre "Are you sure you don't want to come." I smiled at Hayden "Trust me, I wouldn't miss this for the world." Jake laughed "I'm going to get popcorn." I took my tickets and was about to head the other direction with Jake "By the way, I think I would watch Final Destination with you guys." I turned to look at Tyler with an angry look so did everyone else while Peter was just staring daggers at me, what is wrong with this guy? "Tyler, please don't think of ruining this night for me, I want to watch this movie in peace." Nicole kept sulking and whining, I couldn't take it, I went into the cinema room with Jake and Tyler sat on my other side "You didn't think I would leave you two alone, did you?" I sank in my seat and muttered "Why?" The movie started and within ten minutes, Nicole started whining "Baby, I'm scared, it's so bloody." "Why don't you go back then?" That made me laugh, Jake leaned to my ear "Just watch this?" I was confused "What do you mean?" "Tyler still likes you." I doubt that even though everyone's been telling me that but if he did, he wouldn't have broken up with me on my BIRTHDAY. "Just watch." He held my hand and shifted closer to me making it obvious to Tyler who turned to us "What the f*** are you guys doing?" He said that a bit to loud and Jake laughed "Told you so." I didn't even find that funny, it was meant to be only me watching this.

The movie finally ended and I was sure I was red in the face, I stormed out "How was the movie?" I looked at Hayden and she noticed my look and mouthed 'sorry'. Peter was still eyeing me, I sighed and took a cab back to school. If I see Nicole, I'll make sure she swallows her hair so that she wouldn't have the voice to whine again. I went into my room, locked the door and fell on my bed till I slept. What a boring weekend this turned out to be.
