The little teef snuck out! She’s such an ungrateful brat.
“Close the cellar door.” Melissa ordered.
I walked over to the cellar door and saw that Mickie was lying in a pool of her own blood. Serves her right.
“Jesus Mel! How hard did u hit her?” i asked.
“The usual. Why?” she asked.
“She’s bleeding badly. I think she may need stitches.” I told her.
“Oh shit really?” Emma asked. I nodded.
“No problem. There’s some paper stitches in the press from the last time.
Andrea went to the press, got the stitches and handed them to Melissa. Melissa wiped some of the blood away from mickie’s eye and put the stitches on.
“Ooohh! Looks like she’s gonna have a really bad black eye in the morning!” Emma told us.
We all giggled.
My eye was throbbing really badly the volgende morning and was very sore. The cellar door was open so it was bright in there. I looked down and saw a pool of blood on the ground.
Shit! Did Melissa hit me that hard?
I walked upstairs and looked in the mirror. Fuck, I’ve got a really bad black eye with a deep cut under it.
I had paper stitches on the cut. My sister’s must have put them on me when I was knocked out.
I went into the douche and then got dressed. I put on my jeans and my blue lone-sleeved top. I let my wavy hair down and put a blue bloem in it. I slipped my blue pumps on.
I was just finished getting ready when my sister Claire screamed:
“MICKIE GET DOWN HER NOW!”
I hurried downstairs.
“For god sake Claire, how hard did Melissa hit me last night?” I asked.
“Oh just shut up and come here. I need to put make-up on your eye to cover up all the swelling and the cut.” She said.
“Ow! Ow! Ow! OW!” I exclaimed in pain.
“Oh shut up and hold still!” she zei as she applied the make-up to my eye.
When she finished I turned around to leave but she pulled me back.
“Don’t u DARE sneak out again of else.” She threatened.
I nodded and headed out the door.
I called for Amanda and she smiled when she saw me.
Then she stepped outside and frowned.
“Amanda what’s wrong?” I asked.
“Look at your eye. Did your sisters hit u again yesterday?” she asked.
“yup.” I replied.
“What did u do?” she asked.
“I snuck out because niall was coming to my house.” I said.
“So they hit you? For god sake.” She looked worried.
“Is it very noticeable?” I asked.
“No. but I know that u barley ever wear make-up unless they’ve hit you.” She frowned.
She gave me a hug and we headed to Kate’s house.
“Hiya Kate!” I zei as she answered the door.
“hi.” She replied.
“What happened your eye?” she asked.
“Take a guess!” I laughed.
“That’s not fair. No one should be allowed to hurt u like that except me.” She said, grumpily then laughed.
We walked to school and when we got there zayn was standing outside the gate.
“Oh look Amanda!” I showed her zayn walking towards her.
“um… hi zayn.” She zei shyly.
Zayn didn’t reply. He simply took Amanda into his arms and kissed her.
What a lucky girl!
“this is the dag I’m gonna make my move.” Kate promised.
“on who?” I asked.
“Harry Styles.” She replied.
“But he has a girlfriend, doesn’t he?” I asked.
“not for long!” she sang as she merrily skipped off.
After school neither kate of Amanda were around so I went to my locker, grabbed my boeken and began to head home. It was beginning to rain.
Oh shit. I’m screwed.
The make-up covering my black eye will wash off!
I hurried along the path but I was stopped door niall.
“so you’re not a good girl.” Niall smirked.
“what?” I asked, confused.
“I know u snuck out last night.” He grinned.
“um… well yeah.” I zei without looking him in the eye.
“did u get killed door your sisters?” he asked.
“not exactly…..” I began but then noticed that niall was staring closely at my black eye.
Shit. The make-up must have washed off.
He looked up at me, noticing I wasn’t looking him in the eye.
“did your sisters.... Do this?” he asked.
“No.” I lied.
He saw right through me though.
“tell me the truth.” He said, sternly.
I swallowed hard and sighed.
“yes. They did.” I said, holding back my tears.
“why the fuck did they do that?” he asked.
“because I snuck out.” I zei as I tried to walk past him. He pulled me back and lifted up my chin.
“jesus Christ! That’s some black eye! And what, your eye spleet, split open as well when they hit you?” he asked.
“yeah.” I replied.
“are u sure you’re ok?” he asked.
“yes im fine niall.” I zei quietly.
I looked up into his eyes and he looked into mine. His face moved in closer to mine and before I knew it, our lips were only an inch apart. I closed my eyes and leaned in closer when an arm grabbed me and pulled me away. It was kate.
