More than a story

Haley Cavendale's first English assignment in a new school is about Edward Scissorhands. A tale of love and loss, no more. But elements of the film soon become apparent in Haley's life when she befriends an outcast who shows her a different side to the story...


12. Invitation

On Monday morning when I strolled through the gates of Hawthorne High, Romeo by my side, I felt at ease. But that soon faded when I saw Jade in the middle of the courtyard, surrounded by students.

"It's gonna be amazing, so make sure you can all come. Friday, nine o'clock!" She beamed at her admirers, and her gaze flickered over to me and Romeo. I could see the slight frown that crossed her face when she saw Romeo slip his hand into mine. 

"You two should come as well." Jade gestured in my general direction, but her gaze was fixed on Romeo. She smiled seductively, and I wanted to be sick. 

"Isn't Riley coming?" My words made heads turn. Jade looked at me as if she wanted to stamp on me with her nine-hundred dollar boots (everyone knows she's crazy rich).

"Actually, he is coming. As my date," she said smugly. Light applause came from her admirers, but I just glared in her direction and headed to class.

"So, I'll pick you up just before nine?" said Romeo. I looked at him. I raised an eyebrow.

"You bet," I said. It was time to get my revenge.
