OMG! I'm starting my very first story on the fan-fiction website; and what better way to introducemyself than on the BTR community? I am sooooooo excited- you don't even know. You might remember me from the many reviews I've left as my pen-name or as chapter is really short but it's only the beginning so don't worry. I really hope you enjoy this story and reviews, critique and ideas are happily accepted! Enjoy!

Disclaimer: No. I do not own BTR nor will I ever… unless…

Sticks and Stones

*-*Chapter 1*-*

"Sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt me." I have heard this saying through my whole life. But I know just as well as anybody that this statement is totally untrue; because words do hurt. A lot. Especially when they come from your so called "best friends." But do you know what's worse than harsh words? Silence. Complete and utter silence. When people you would do anything for just suddenly drop you- it hurts. Sticks and stones do break my bones; but no words hurt more than hurtful ones ever could.


Okay. I messed up big time. But I didn't mean to. I didn't mean to mess up Kendall and Jo's date. But seriously; how was I supposed to know that the crab would crawl away and scuttle to her hair? And I didn't mean to set Logan's favourite math textbook on fire, it just kind of… happened. And I REALLY didn't mean to spill my chocolate milkshake on James' new white pants in front of Rachael; I really didn't. But now I think the guys have had enough of my "didn't mean too's."

They haven't talked to me since the weekend and I think that now they're really mad at me. I woke up this morning with an uneasy feeling in my stomach. Not the kind when you've eaten too many corndogs, but the kind when you're totally afraid of what's going to happen next. I slowly stood up from my curled up position on the bed and let my bare feet hit the hardwood floor beneath them. I stretched and looked at the clock. 8:20. That means I have 40 minutes to kill. 40 minutes until I have to be around my friends all day. I started off to the bathroom.

After my 10 minute shower I threw on a purple graphic tee and grey skinny jeans with my purple and black Vans. I took a deep breath and headed down the stairs to the kitchen. The guys were talking and laughing… until I walked in. All eyes were on me and all conversation stopped. I kept my head down and avoided eye contact. I pulled out a red bowl from the cupboard and some Cinnamon Toast Crunch from the top of the fridge. I also grabbed some milk and poured it into the bowl along with the cereal. When I was done I headed over to the kitchen table while the guys were seated at the kitchen counter. I ate my cereal in silence. When I finished I put my bowl in the sink and went down to the lobby, not being able to take any more uncomfortable silence.

At the lobby I saw Stephanie who was on one of the orange chairs and I sat next to her. It took her a few moments to notice my presence. "Oh, hey Carlos, how's it going?" She asked. I sighed. "Not too well Steph. The guys are still upset with me. They'll barely look at me; much less have a conversation." After the dance Stephanie and I decided that we just being friends would be better than us as a couple. "Still? Oh, Carlos don't worry soon enough they'll come around and realize how stupid they're being and come apologize to you," she said looking very genuine, yet I still couldn't get the knot out of my stomach. "Are you sure?" I asked. "Positive," she replied eagerly. I looked down. She sighed and stuck out her pinky. "I pinky promise." I smiled widely and locked my fingers with hers, because for a moment, I believed her.

OKAY! That was the first chapter of hopefully many! I'll try to update ASAP. As I said before ideas are accepted and reviews are REALLY appreciated. BTW this chapter is dedicated to Hikari No Kasai. He is an amazing writer and so funny! So go check out his stories now! Later peepz.
