"It'll never happen, Skye!" Jackie said as she rolled her eyes.
"My dreams say different!" I replied, laughing.
It was a warm summer's day (which is a rare thing for England), and me and Jackie were chilling out on College Green with a smile on our faces. I rarely get to see Jackie as she is always revising for her exams, so today was a well awaited day for us.
Impersonating me, Jackie stood up and over exaggeratedly said "Danisnotonfire has my heart on fire!" whilst prancing around stupidly. As if I was really like that!
"Don't be mean!" I giggled, and pulled Jackie down to the grass in fits of giggles.
Danisnotonfire is my favourite YouTuber. And yes, I admit I do think he is hot. Hot like fire even. (Mind my pun). But of course, I know that would never extend to something more. I haven't ever even met him! Considering we live in Manchester too, like Dan and Phil, I had never met him. Still, I vowed I would.
"Anyway, I best be off. We have that stupid family party later with Aunt Gene and I need to show up on time otherwise she will have my guts for garters!" Jackie stated, pulling her purple floral messenger bag over her shoulder. "Bye!"
We hugged and went our separate ways.
As I made my way through the large fields of College Green (it was famous for being one of the largest greens in the United Kingdom), I had to walk past a group of boisterous teenagers, who happened to have suspicious cans of beer in their hands. I instantly did not like the look of them. However, I had no other option to change route. "Come on Skye" I reassured myself, "They're just hanging around- no need to worry!" But how wrong was I.
As I quickly walked past these teenagers, I retrieved my phone from my bag, hoping that if they could see me pretending to text on my phone, they won't bother me and not think I am trying to get their attention. Nevertheless, I did not succeed.
"Hey pretty lady!" one of the boys said, chucking his beer to his friend, whom of which caught it perfectly. I ignored; I did not want to get in to a discussion with them. "I said HEY PRETTY LADY!" the boy repeated, quickening a pace towards me. Before I could run, he grabbed my arm and pulled me towards him. I held my breath and looked down at my converse- I refused to reply. "That's a nice phone you have there" one of the other boys said sneeringly, jogging over to join his friend who had me by the arm. They both laughed and nodded towards one another. Before I knew it, the one who had me by the arm started tugging at my phone. "Get off!" I screamed, pulling back on my phone. This was becoming a rough game of Tug of War. Only, I did not want to play. Despite my pleas, the boy still tugged at the phone which a smug look on his face.
"OI! GET OFF HER!" someone shouted from behind me. Someone had come to help me! "I SAID, GET THE FUCK OFF HER!" the voice shouted again, louder this time. The boys obeyed, and ran off laughing to their friends. They scarpered.
I began to sob. I nearly just got mugged! I sank to the grass in tears, totally shaken up by the events. Before I knew it, I had someone's arms around my shoulders.
"Are you alright?" the owner of the arms said. I suddenly twisted around; eager to find out who my saviour- my knight in shining armour even- was. I blinked. I blinked again. I could not believe my eyes.
"Oh my god" was all I could say.
