Okay, so I know I said I was going to name my new story "Smile" but some of you guys wanted drama in this new story c: Since I already did one when Loren's getting stalked, this one is when Loren gets bullied c: Lots and lots of drama for you guys ;D Loren and Eddie might even have a fight or two…we'll see xD Read on lovelies ^-^
Loren Tate…what can we say about Loren Tate…hm…well, she's 18, getting ready to graduate, her dad left her at the age of 4, her best friends are Adam, who's quite shy but fun once you get to know him, and Mel, who isn't shy one bit and isn't afraid to show her crazy side, she's dating Eddie Duran too! Seems exciting, and it is for Loren, but not for those other girls who wish they were in Loren's spot. What else…oh yeah…she gets bullied. Like, a lot. Nobody knows though, and that's how Loren's wants to keep it.
See Loren lives in this world where she feels like she can take care of herself and she believes she won't break. But…people have to break every now and then, right? Well, Loren doesn't want to believe any of that, so she stays quiet about what happens at school.
Loren's snapped out of her thoughts and turned to see Mel looking at her with a concerned look.
"What?" She asked.
"I've been calling your name for like…5 minutes. What's wrong with you? You've been spacing out a lot." Mel said, sitting down next to her friend on her bed.
"Oh, uh, sorry, it's nothing, really," Loren said, turning back to the textbook that was on her bed.
Mel gave her an odd look, "Loren Tate, don't lie to me."
Loren looked up and gave a sigh, "I'm fine, really. Just all the exams that are coming up…it's just stressing me out."
"Why? You're never stressed over an exam," Mel said, her look softening.
Loren scratched her head, "I don't know. Look, can we just please get back to studying?"
Mel stared at her for a few minutes before nodding and they continued working on problems for a few more minutes before they heard a knock on the door.
"Knock, knock," A voice said right before Eddie walked in.
The girls looked up and Loren's face brightened up.
"Hey, Rock Star," Mel said, smiling.
Eddie chuckled, "Hey Mel." Then he turned to Loren, "And hello Ms. Tate," He teased.
Loren giggled, "Mr. Duran."
Eddie laughed, "Anyways, Adam and I were wondering if you lovely ladies would like to join us in a friendly game of foosball at the café."
Loren scoffed, but smiled, "Eddie, a friendly game of foosball with you and Adam is like World War 3."
"Well," Eddie said, crossing his arms, "Adam and I promise to play nice."
"Where's Adam right now?" Mel asked, sitting up straighter.
"In the living room, talking to Nora," Eddie said, pointing his thumb in the direction of the door.
Mel instantly jumped up, "Okay, well, I'll meet you guys in the living room, I have to go say hi to my boyfriend." Mel winked and left the room.
Loren chuckled and got up, shutting both textbooks and put them on her desk.
"So is that a yes to the foosball?" Eddie pressed.
Loren put her hand on her chin and pretended to think, "Hmm..."
Eddie groaned, "Awe, Lo! C'mon! It'll be like when we first hung out."
Loren smiled, "You remember that?"
Eddie smiled back and walked over to her, wrapping his arms around her waist, "Of course I do. It was the most fun I've had in a while."
Loren laughed, "See, I knew you'd have fun."
Eddie chuckled, "I did and now I want to do it again."
Loren laughed softly and pulled away from Eddie's grasp.
"Okay, but, whichever team loses, they have to buy the winning team smoothies."
Eddie pouted, "But…Mel always wins when it has something to do with winning something."
Loren laughed and grabbed her jean jacket.
"This was your idea, smartie," Loren teased, pulling her hair out of her jacket.
Eddie rolled his eyes, "Let's go," He grumbled.
Loren smiled and grabbed his hand, giving it a little squeeze, making Eddie smile and kiss her cheek.
Loren giggled, "C'mon, let's not keep Mel and Adam waiting…only we know what she thinks is going on if we take too long."
Eddie laughed and nodded, leading Loren into the living room.
Adriana was on her porch, pacing and biting her nail with a hard look on her face.
"Ade, calm down," Kim said from the chair she was sitting on.
Adrianna stopped and glared at Kim, "No, Loren deserves whatever she gets, and maybe more. I hate how she thinks she can get whatever she wants and whoever she want. Before she met Eddie Duran, she was nobody. No one talked to her or even looked at her. But now that she's dating the popular Eddie Duran, everyone's her friend."
Kim sighed, "Look, Adriana, you were the exact same way. Just let it go."
"Shut up Kim!" Adriana growled, "I will not let this go! This isn't fair! I owned that school and I will get it back; one way, or another."
"Yes, girls win again!" Loren cheered, jumping up.
"Ha ha!" Mel teased, pointing a finger at the boys and sticking her tongue out.
"Crap," Eddie muttered, fishing his wallet out.
Loren laughed, "Eddie its fine, you guys already bought us a shake, the second win was just to tease you."
Eddie did a little mocking face, but pulled out his wallet, "No, I'll buy us all something. What do ya guys want?"
"I just want a sandwich and fries please," Mel said, plopping down on Adam's lap.
"Okay, and Adam?" Eddie asked.
"Uh, just a soda, I'm not hungry," Adam said, wrapping his arms around Mel's waist.
"Hmm, whatever you're getting is fine," Loren said, sitting next to Mel and Adam.
Eddie nodded and went to order their food.
"So," Mel said, shifting in Adam's lap so that she was facing Loren, "When do you want to go shopping for graduation?"
Loren thought for a second, "Uh, how about next week? I have to study this weekend for the exams."
"Great!" Mel said, clapping her hands together, "Because that's when Lisa pays me for cleaning the house while Phil sat on his lazy butt, eating chips."
Loren rolled her eyes and laughed, "Gosh, I'm so glad I'm an only child."
"No," Mel said, shaking her head, "You have me."
"True," Loren said.
They talked for a few more minutes before Eddie came.
"Okay, so a chocolate shake and a sandwich for Mel," Eddie said, putting her plate in front of her, making her grin.
"Thank you," She said and drove right into her meal.
"You welcome," Eddie chuckled, "And a Coke for Adam,"
He put the Coke in front of Adam, "Thanks."
"Mhm, and I just got me and you a large muffin to share," Eddie said sitting across from Loren.
Loren smiled and nodded, "Okay."
Eddie set the muffin in the middle of the table and Loren stared taking bits.
"I got blueberry, since I know it's your favorite," Eddie said, picking a piece.
Loren smiled, and popped a piece in her mouth.
"Thank you Eddie, really. You didn't have to pay," Loren said, laying her hand on top of Eddie's.
Eddie smiled, "I wanted to. Plus, I like doing things for you."
Loren smiled and leaned over the table and gave Eddie a quick kiss.
"You're perfect, you know that?"
Eddie chuckled, "Far from it. But whatever floats your boat."
Loren smiled and shook her head, "Let's finish our food so Mel and I can kick your guys butts again."
Eddie smirked and the two resumed eating, making conversation with Adam and Mel before they got up and went for another round of foosball.
