"Gah. This cafeteria food is so god awful. But in some strange way, I am going to miss the hell out of it." I sigh into my disgusting version of mac n' cheese.
"You're going to miss this? No part of me is ever going to miss any part of this food." My best friend Miley's lip curled to reveal her pearly whites.
I laughed at her, because she made complete sense. This food was definitely not going to be missed. What I was going to miss was sitting here, for lunch everyday of my high school career. The same table, and even the same seat placement, for the last four years. And as boring as that sounded, I didn't mind it. Not one bit.
"Ok. Maybe I won't miss the food. But I will definitely miss the lunch period in general."
"Ok good. I understand that one. Graduating is going to be so weird. Only two more days left."
I smiled nervously. "Two days." And my head turned to where Oliver always used to sit. "I can't believe it's been three years since he moved."
Automatically Miley knew who was talking about. "I know. It's weird. Having such a close best friend, and then, he's just gone. Just like that. I still can't believe he never even contacted us after he moved."
I sighed, still looking at the spot where he used to sit. I couldn't believe it either. We had been best friends since kindergarden, and at the time it was so weird not to talk to him anymore. But now I was so used to it that it barely affected me. And even though Miley and I had tried to find out his new number, we found it rather difficult to find a person who lived across the country's phone number. In Maryland to be exact. Why someone who want to leave California for Maryland I never quite understood. But whatever floated his parent's boat I guess was what mattered. Even if I did miss him.
My thoughts were interuppted by a kiss on my neck, "Hey Lilly Sunshine."
The sad look on my face quickly turned to a big smile, as I turned around to see my boyfriend. His blue eyes shone through the brown bangs which slightly covered them. His smile showed all his teeth, and his mild chuckle was adorable to me. "Hey Cody."
"What are you two girls talking about?" He asked as he sat on the other side of me opposite Miley. In the seat that Oliver used to sit in.
Miley was the first to answer the question. "Oliver."
Cody's face dropped, from the stories I had told of him of Oliver, he never liked him. Even if he had never really known him. The only thing that bothered him was that I had told him how he never talked to me and Miley after his surprise move away. "Why were you talking about him?"
"I don't know." I shrugged. "I guess when you start talking about the fact that you're about to graduate, you start to think about old people in your life."
His arm wrapped around me, and squeezed tight. "I understand." He gave me a kiss on the cheek. "I'm going to miss you when you graduate." He was a Junior to my Senior.
I laughed at him. "Babe. I've told you thousands of times. I'm going to the college in this town. You'll still see me." I gave him a quick peck on the lips, and looked up at him.
"I know, darling. But it'll be weird not seeing you in these hallways."
To tell you the truth, it would be weird not being in these hallways in general. Especially knowing Cody was still in them. We had been dating for two years now, and where as most teenagers weren't able to say it, it was safe to say I was in love with him. "And it'll be weird not being in them." I said to him, with a smile.
"Hey Miley." We both heard being said in Miley's own voice.
"What?" I asked, turning towards her.
"That's what a text message I just got says. I don't know the number." She showed it to me, and it was from a random number.
"Weird." I started. "I wonder who it's from."
"Miley's got a creeper." Cody joked.
"I sure hope I don't have a creeper. All I need is another one of those." And she rolled her eyes, all three of us knowing she was referring to the fact that she was secretly the biggest pop star in the world, Hannah Montana. And I know what you're thinking, Cody knew about this too? Well he had actually only found out about six months ago. Miley seemed to think he past the trusting test, plus after that long of a time, he was finally starting to put two and two together. Which was saying something. Because somehow, no one else in life that Miley decided not to tell ever guessed it. Which I found hilarious, that all she needed to do was put on a wig and she was a completely different person. But I wasn't complaining, because I got to do it too.
"Well are you going to text the person back?" I asked her.
"Yeah. I'd like to know what strange numbered person knows my name."
"I'm telling you," Cody started, "it's your new creeper. Someone here knows you're..." And he looked back and forth, and then leaned towards Miley, and finished with, "...Hannah Montana. And now is in love with you, and is going to learn your schedule, and is going to follow you everywhere."
I looked over at Miley, her face becoming freaked out. Her worst fear was that someone would learn she was Hannah Montana. I hit Cody in the stomach. "Would you stop already? You're freaking her out."
Indeed, Miley's eyes were now wide as they could be. Cody laughed silently. "I'm sorry Miley. I didn't mean to freak you out that much."
"What did you do to my Mileybear?" Her boyfriend, Bret asked Cody, as he strolled up to us.
As much as Miley liked Bret, I just couldn't make myself like him. They had only been dating for three months, and already they were about twenty times more cutesy than Cody and I. But Miley had never been that way with boys, this was Bret's doing, all the way. He occasionally winked at me, and he would make sexist remarks almost constantly. Cody hated him with every part of him, and sometimes had to resist punching him in the face after the type of things that he would say to Miley. Even though Cody was my boyfriend, he was just as much as her best friend as Oliver used to be.
"I love you Miley." Bret said to her, giving her a kiss on the cheek. And the thing that pushed me over the edge was when he said that to her. He also loved the past four girlfriends he had before Miley. It took me over a year to tell Cody that and mean it. And the worst part was Miley said it right back to him.
"I love you too Bretty."
I nearly gagged, turning my face into Cody's chest. "Tell me about it." He whispered to me.
Finally the bell rang, ending lunch, and me having to watch Miley and Bret be disgusting. "Hey." I said, getting Miley's attention. "Did that person ever text you back?"
She looked at her phone, then back up at me. "Nope."
I wondered who it was who sent her that text message.
(Hey guys! :) I like it so far, personally. And I'm really excited about it. And as all you Loliver fans know out there, Sunday is finally the day we get to see Lilly and Oliver together. :D Unless Disney decides to make it one of those episodes where things don't always end up like they seem, like they do with a bunch of different stuff. But I'm still excited to watch it. haha. Reviews pretty please?)
