11A Chapter by ♥ Courtney ♥
I laughed and we walked to class. World History blew by and I pranced to my locker. I grabbed my books and started toward Bio. I saw a new boy in the hall and his eyes caught mine. He was about 6’1” with black hair and piercing green eyes. His gaze held mine until I almost walked into my classroom. I looked away and walked into class. I saw three girls sitting on my table talking to Kyle. They were known as the school “Skanks”. I never understood the name they came up with for themselves. The leader of the horrific pack was seemingly flirting with Kyle.
‘I don’t know what’s worse. The fact that the Skanks are sitting at my table…or that the reason their there is because of Kyle.’ I thought to myself
I walked up and two of the three left. The leader, Ally, was still sitting there giggling. I walked to the far end of the table and sat down. Ally got up.
“See you at prom. I can’t wait!” she squealed and walked to her table
‘What! ...A wonderful day it is outside’ I carefully edited my thoughts because I remembered Kyles’ mind reading power.
“How are you “ I turned and smiled
“Uh fine” he looked worried
“ That’s good” I took out my notes and copied the board
When the bell rang I stood up and scooped up my things.
Ally came prancing over to Kyle. She threw her arms around him and started talking to him super close.
‘Bye Kyle see you in art’ I said in my head knowing he could hear me. Whether he chose to hear me I didn’t know but it would have been the same if I had said it aloud while he was pre-occupied.
' I cant believe he asked her!' I was furious
'He could of asked me and he didn’t. Does he not like me anymore?’ I wondered
I walked into math and sat down in my seat in the back. Ash texted me earlier saying her schedule got changed and she had math 4th period now instead of 3rd with me. I was bummed out and I didn’t even notice the new kid walk in.
He walked to the back by me and chose the desk next to me. He set his bag down and smiled at me. His smile was wonderful. I held my breath as he slid into his seat with more grace than a Gazelle.
“Hi I’m Alec” he said in a voice smooth like butter.
“Hi I’m Lexie” I said
‘Whew I’m glad I remembered my name’ I thought
He looked over at my binder that was filled with doodles of the names of my favorite bands.
“You like Silverstein?” he asked
“Yeah, do you” I asked
“Definitely. My favorite song is Bleeds No More.”
“Haha, I’m more of a Smile in Your Sleep kind of girl but that’s a great song” I giggled
We laughed. It was nice to meet someone new. We partnered up for a worksheet and we joked about the funny things the teacher said about how to solve problems. I started packing up at the end of the period.
“So I guess I’ll see you at lunch?” he said.
I paused for a second. He wanted to eat lunch with me?
He stared at me and I remembered that I hadn't answered.
“Oh! Yes, Definitely’’ I said and walked to my next class
I saw Matt in Spanish and I sat with him as usual. We chatted about how things were. That’s one thing I love about Matt, we can always talk about anything. The end of the period rolled around and I was a tad surprised that he hadn’t asked me to prom. Not that I was waiting for it but I had assumed that he might since the other boys had dates. I noticed that Emma walked up to Matt at the end of class. She was talking to him and he asked her something and her face lit up like a Christmas tree. She jumped into a hug and he smiled wide. I wondered what it was.
I got my things and headed to lunch. I waved bye to Matt and headed into the cafeteria. I grabbed a tray and filled it with a sandwich an orange and lemonade. I walked out of line and looked for a place to sit. I looked around and Alec’s gaze caught mine. He smiled and used his index finger to call me to him. I smiled and happily sat with him.
“Hey! Aren’t you hungry?” I asked noting the emptiness in front of him
“Nope” he said smiling his gorgeous smile
“Hmm” I said chewing a bite of my sandwich
He smiled me and seemed to be studying me.
“Do I have something on my face?” I said wiping my mouth
“No no I was just rudely staring. But I cant help myself.” He said and I blushed.
I was waiting for Jennifer to walk out and laugh and say something like
‘haha we got you do you actually think he would be interested in a girl like you?’ or for him to tell me that he is a psycho murderous lunatic or that he had a girlfriend because there was no way this gorgeous guy was sitting here willingly and telling me that he couldn’t stop staring at me.
He smiled once again.
“What?” I asked
“Umm so this may sound weird but what are you doing Saturday?” he asked
“Nothing I can think of” I said
“Well would you like to go see a movie?” he asked looking at the table
“Yes! I mean uh yeah that would be cool” I said blushing
“Sweet” he said
“So ill pick you up at 7?” he said
“Yes” I said and we walked to class
I practically danced to art.
When I walked in I was happily humming to myself.
"Why are you so happy" Tyson asked nudging me.
"No reason." I said
"Uh huh sure" I said
I laughed and started on my art painting.
