Eight- It Will Rain, (Part 2/2)A Chapter by Alice Patterson
My heart was pounding so hard I heard it through my chest. My face flustered a bright red. My breathing amounted to a million miles per hour.
I turned quickly, smiling, waiting to meet Him, but there was nobody when I twirled away from Adrian.
Ignoring tears, I began to chase faint footsteps that were off in the west.
"Cari! Wait!"Adrian called, but she was long gone from me. At least forty or so yards.
I was determined to meet Him, now. Today. I stopped just long enough for Adrian to catch up, and find the footsteps went north. When we rounded the final corner, the place were all footsteps had ceased- we saw something terrifying.
Right as the lump in my through began to form, there was a sly giggle from behind us.
We tiptoed closer, though scared. I told Adrian to stand guard for the janitor while I hid behind the pony wall of the girls bathroom.
"Play it again, Sheila." A high-pitched voice rang. This would be none other than Lana, beta in the mean girls clique of our highschool.
"Okay, okay," Sheila said. With a few clicks of phone buttons, the same, loud, booming voice erupted. Though closer, it was staticy. But you could makeout the same "Nice hair,".
"Dang Connie, you do a mean dude!" Arizona, the only African American in the mean girl's clique complimented.
They played it again, and again, and again. They were playing it long after I was out in the baseball field, crying.
"Hey, are you okay?" A male voice said behind me, I turned around, to see a shaggy balck haired lanky boy standing there, my age. I had seen him in the halls, but never had I talked to him.
"Yeah," I layed back onto the dirt, "I'm Babylon."
"Nice to meet you Babylon- I'm Mitchel."
