5. Five~"Get me out!"

Ryan

"Get me out of here!" I cry, holding back the tears that threaten to spill, "Help!"

My fists are red from pounding on the door. I can hear Ricky laughing at me. "Bye bye Ryan!" he laughs. And he's gone.

After what feels like hours of yelling and hitting the door, I give up. I curl up into a ball on the floor and start to sob. "I hate him," I whisper, "He's horrible. He's popular. He's got a girlfriend." I take a deep, shuddering breath in and say, "I wish I was him..."

I'd love a girlfriend but I'd probably just get Carolyn, one of the nerds. I don't even like her! I want Cherry Stevens. But she probably doesn't even know I exist...

 

I'm still in a ball when the door opens. There's no more tears left for me to cry. My face feels wet and I wipe it on my sleeve before looking up. I almost fall over.

It's Cherry.

"God Ryan," she says looking angry, "What the hell are you doing in here?"

"I-I," I stammer, "Rob shoved me in. Ricky told him I was claustrophobic..."

Her expression softens. "Come on, you missed art and lunch," she smiles, "I had to lie like crazy for you, saying you were sick. Miss McAllister told me to find you, and tell you that you can have lunch now."

"Th-thanks..." I mumble. Cherry. Here. Being nice. Brain can't compute.

I get up, grabbing my bag. Just as I'm going out, she blocks my way.

"You gotta stand up to him Ryan," she whispers, "Don't let him get the better of you. He's not your brother if he does this to you. Ryan, just ignore him."

But how? He's my twin. I can't!

"Tell your parents," says Cherry. I hadn't realised I'd said that out loud. Oops.

"I can't Cherry," I mutter, "He'll find a way out of it..." But she's gone, walking down the corridor.

I think she likes me...
