Casey's POV

"What a prick!" I exclaimed angrily as Macy and I found a seat in the cafeteria. "He knows other people exist, right? He's not the only one here. Ugh, he's so aggravating! And I don't even talk to him very often!"

"Woah there tiger." Macy laughed, "Retract the claws."

I glared over at Macy as we sat at an empty table near the corner of the cafeteria. "Macy, you have no idea how rude he is! If he wasn't so good looking, he's be the scum of the-"

"I've never heard you so mad before." Liam snickered as he sat beside me. Chris took his seat on the other side, filling the four sides of the table.

"The first time you spoke to me was just the other day, of course you haven't." I snapped, taking an angry bite out of my Nutella sandwich. Liam life's his hands in mock surrender. "Sorry." I grumbled, food still in my mouth.

"It's all good, boo." Chris said, wrapping his arm around my shoulders and pulling me to him. My eyebrows creased in confusion as I looked at Macy as if to say, excuse me? She just shrugged with a huge smile on her face. Chris' shaggy hair was all over me and I was getting uncomfortable.

"Okay, that's enough love." I announced, awkwardly shaking him off me. Liam looked over at Chris with a cocky smirk and I squinted with suspicion.

"So, " Liam began, turning towards me, "What's got your panties all in a twist?"

"I'm pretty sure only Jeremy could get anyone is riled up." Chris laughed, hitting the table as he chuckled.

"I mean, you're not wrong." I sighed, eating more of my sandwich. The Nutella was already making me feel better and I was starting to get giddy again. "But hey, life is good because I've got-"

My eyes widened and my mouth moved, but no noise came out as Liam grabbed the sandwich out of my hand and stuffed it in his mouth with one bite.

"I-you-I-Nutella?" I stuttered out, flexing my finge

inger in his broad chest. He unfolded his arms and took a step towards me, trying to look intimidating. Well too bad, Jeremy, I'm too angry to be intimidated. On top of my dad last night, my Nutella sandwich, and now this? No way.

"You're my deal." Jeremy snapped. "You're always bothering me."

"The first time I'd ever spoken to you, was yesterday, what do you mean!" I exclaimed angrily my hands balling into fists.

"Most bothersome two days of my life." He stated, glaring down at me. I took a deep breath and calmed myself down.

"You know what? You're not even worth it. Screw the Nutella ice cream, I'd give up a life time of Nutella to never see you again." I sneered, walking around him and out the door. Okay, maybe I overreacted, but everything piling up is just too much right now. I walked around the building and sat in the alley, putting my head in my hands.

I wasn't sad because if Jeremy, no, he was like a fly that was just annoying. It's just that my father's condition has been getting worse and worse and I don't want to rant to anyone because deep, deep down, I know no one really cares.

So, for the first time in a long time, I cried.
