Chapter Eight

My friends were happy and shocked at the same time.

"Liam Thorne is YalePrince12?" Brooklyn asked.

"Yeah," I said, looking at Liam and smiling.

"I won't hurt her," Liam said. "I love her. I've actually loved her since junior high."

"Really?" I asked.

"Yes," Liam said. "While guys were pining over Julianne, I was looking at you."

I smiled. Liam smiled back, putting his arms around my waist and pulling me close. Julianne, Rori,Danny,Maddi and Tyler came over. Rori,Danny,Maddi and Tyler were smiling while Julianne was mad.

"You broke up with me to go out with Diner Girl? "Julianne asked.

"Her name is Jessica," Liam said. "She is much better for me than you ever were."

"Liam's right," Rori said. "Jessica is a great person to be around. She's a better person than you'll ever be."

"She works hard for her money," Tyler said. "You don't even know what hard work is."

"You terrorize people," Maddi said. "You think you're better than everyone else. News flash: you're not."

"I'm glad Liam broke up with you," Danny said. "Goodbye."

Julianne stormed off. Rori and Maddi hugged me.

"We've missed you,"Rori said.

"I've missed you two," I said.

Maddi and Rori were my best friends before they became cheerleaders. Julianne told them that they couldn't be friends with me. Carlos and Rori started talking. CJ and Maddi started talking. Capri and Danny started talking. Candi and Tyler started talking. Brooklyn was looking at Lucky (they've been together for two years). Adonia was talking to her boyfriend Ronan Locke. It was time to announce the Homecoming King and Queen.

"Julianne always wins stuff like this," I said.

Liam smiled, saying someone else would get it. Turns out he was right. I won Homecoming Queen and Liam won Homecoming King.
