Sorry, my anaemia got bad, like REALLY bad, been crazy ill lately, barely even able to get out of bed on a good day. But here I am, updating, because I feel so dang GUIILLLTTTYYY! I'm really sorry, but I won't bore you with excuses. I'll just give you some review replies, then on with the story.
Jay-Goh – you are quitttteee rightyyyy, Tina has no idea what's in store!
PrincessMoi – I feel kinda bad for making Tina evil, most stories pick on her. If I start any more Gallagher Girls fanfics, I'll make sure to give someone else the chance to be nassssty. And as for that, you'll just have to wait and see.
IamMe03 – yes, Tina is verrrryyy bad!
ConversesAndTHG – read Finding Sky and Stealing Phoenix, they were epic, thanks so much! Hopefully I'll be well enough to go down to the bookstore soooon without fainting so I can pick up the others! I know, Macey is one of my all-time favorite characters ever! I'm freaking out that she'll be portrayed all wrong in this though and I totally agree, Liz is always pushed into the background. Haha I'm used to it from my friends, and you will just have to wait and see how murderous Bex gets in later chappies, because I promise you she will…
cammieXzachxx – thanks, it's always good to know other people are going through the same newbie-thing! And I really hope you do keep reading and don't hate me for not updating like I promised :'(
KITTYKAT – thank you so much! I hate Tina too!
xXxGGirlxXx – LOLLLZ I did that when I was writing it as well glad I'm not the only one who subconsciously thinks of her as a fish :P you find out Zach's plan in chapter six, maybe seven, we'll see. Tina's plan will take a bit longer though…suspense…
Zale007 – meh I speak a bit, I'm much better at ITALIANO though. Thank you so much! And oh my gosh yes I read it over the summer SUCH AN AMAZING BOOK! If you have any more suggestions for good reads, PM me!
XxCandyygirlxX – yeah it's so unfair I always find people are mean to newbies (only in my personal experience though) you're just gonna have to wait and see how Zach feels, because the circumstances may have changed a looootttt by the time Tina goes through with her plan ;)
lolhappygurll – yes that is so true! I will definitely make sure to make her nice if I start more GG fanficcccies, I feel bad for her, she was just the first person who came to mind!
Quinnp – thank you so much! This chapter isn't as good as the others, I think, so I'm not sure if you'll be saying that after you've read it. Fingers crossed!
itasca36 – done! And trust me, she gets worse…
REVIEW! Thanks guys, loooovingggg you all muchos, sorry this isn't such a good or long chappie, I reckon my skills aren't so good when I'm all, not that I have skills when I'm healthy but still, you know what I mean. I hope… :P
I needed to make sure the entire school saw the video. But if they all saw it, then they'd know how great she was…
Then it hit me. I could alter the sound, make her sound stupid, she'd be the laughing stock of Roseville high, a social reject, and there was no way she'd ever get a boyfriend. Zach wouldn't date a social reject! Then he'd come running to me, realising how much he loved me.
Smiling to myself, I took a bite out of my sandwich.
"Can I borrow someone's phone? I need to tell my mom something but I've got no credit," I explained. Anna, being the stupid but really sweet person she was, offered right away.
"Here, use mine."
Taking it, I said, "Thanks!"
With a few taps, I was sending a message to my phone with the video file attached.
And now, here comes chapterio fivio!
The rest of the day passed in a blur. I sat with Liz and Bex at lunch, becoming closer to them both by the minute, although Macey would always be my best friend.
We agreed they would come over to my house at around four in the afternoon. I wanted to spend time with Macey and Luke because they wouldn't be there for long, they couldn't keep skipping school to see Grant and me, no matter how much we missed each other.
Grant remembered he needed to give me a lift today, thank goodness, so he was waiting in his flashy car when I walked into the parking lot.
"Bye, see you tomorrow," I said to Bex and Liz as I hurried over to him and clambered into the passenger side.
"Hey, Camster," he grinned. He couldn't seem to stop grinning, he was just as excited about seeing Macey and Luke as I was.
"Hiya," I replied, grinning back. While we drove, I put on Taylor Swift's first album. Grant hated the first track – he was crazy – so he skipped that and we sang along loudly to 'Picture To Burn' together as we cruised through the small almost-deserted Roseville streets, pulling up outside out too-big-for-two-people mansion. He cut the engine and we both jumped out and ran over to the front door as if us being faster would make Macey and Luke arrive sooner.
It wasn't even quarter to three yet, which meant we had plenty of time to get our homework done before certain guests arrived.
********************TIME***SKIP***TO***FIVE***O'CLOCK**************Still in CPOV
Me and Grant were lounging around in the smallest lounge, flicking through channels on the huge flatscreem TV, when the doorbell rang. Like in a movie, we both turned to look at each other, grinned, and raced through the house for the front door. I reached it first and grabbed for the handle, fumbling with it as I tried to pull it open as fast as possible.
There, in front of me, were two of the people I loved most in the world. Two people I was closer to than any other friends I'd ever had. Closer to than my parents. Almost closer to than Grant.
One of them was a girl, tall and slim, the most beautiful girl I'd ever laid eyes on. She appeared to have just stepped off the cover of one of those high fashion magazines she was always reading. Her makeup was done perfectly, making her blue eyes stand out against her fair complexion and her jet black hair was hanging loose. Her clothes were no doubt designer, but that really wasn't the sorta thing I knew much about.
The second person was a boy, taller than the girl, with dirty blond hair, a warm smile, a strong jaw, a great tan, muscles to die for, and a general aura of happy-lovely-cuteness, despite the fact he was almost a year older than me.
"MACEY! LUKE!" I shrieked, diving forwards and pulling them both into a tight hug, trying to hold back tears. I hadn't gone more than a day without either of them since I was a teeny kid. They both returned my bone-crushing hug, holding me close as if they'd never let go. "Ohmygoshimissedyouguyssomuch icantbelieveyourefinallyhere !" It all came out in a rush, but they seemed to understand.
"I've missed you too, Cammie," Macey whispered, her voice gentle and pained. I was the only person who ever heard her speak in that way, so vulnerable. We had been best friends since we were born, inseparable from the second we could walk. "You have no idea."
After a good fifteen minutes of hugging and how-are-you-ing and I've-missed-you-ing and wow-cool-crib-ing, then twenty Macey and Luke being shown the guest rooms and getting settled in and us all changing into comfy clothes, we were finally all sitting in the big lounge. Luke and me were lying together on a couch (not in that way, he was a brother to me) watching '16 & Pregnant' while Macey and Grant were spread out on cushions taking up most of the floor space, playing some really complicated card game they made up for no good reason. It was just like old times, the four of us hanging out together, but something was different. Something just didn't feel right.
Just as I was thinking that, the doorbell chimed again. Distinctly aware of our sweats-and-old-hoodies attire, none of us were keen to go answer it, but when it rang for the third time, I pushed Luke off the sofa. He looked like an angry puppy that had just been woken up, it was so funny. I was laughing so much I fell off the sofa too. Glaring at me, he picked me up, threw me over his shoulder, and marched through the house to the front door. He swung me round so he was piggybacking me – I could barely breathe I was still laughing so hard – and opened the door, a familiar lopsided grin on his face.
The person standing on the other side of the huge double doors was most definitely not expected.
"Hello, good sir. This is the Morgan residence. How may I be of service?" Luke joked, bowing so I nearly fell off his back. I would've found it hilarious if it weren't for the look on the one and only Zachary Goode's face when he saw the way Luke was gripping my legs and my arms were locked around his neck.
So…what do you think? If you love it loads, and I get zillions of reviews, I might update again tonight! We'll see if I'm in a good enough mood and if I get enough reviews.
Just remember: reviews=motivation and motivation=more updates!
