Fitting In

Grace is one of the ´popular´ kids but when she falls for a cute, intelligent but UN-popular guy named Luke, she opens her eyes and finally realizes just how mean her friends can be. And when Grace tries to break away and be her own person, she feel the full force of a popular girls wrath.


12. Chill Room


Lucas set me down on one of the couches in our school´s chill room, then he and Angella left me alone. I stood up as soon as I was sure they had gone and pulled back the couch I had been sitting on. One of the things that Trace had taught me whilst we were still friends was that; our school is old, very old and that its full of secret passages that lead to places that still belong to the school but are fenced of for students and no-one ever goes. 

There is a small trap door under the couch, but its locked. However this didnt bother me because Trace taught me how to pick old locks, with a long needle and magnet. It makes no sense and I don't know how it happens but it does and that's what matters.

This particular passage leads to the old school fields which are now overgrown with weeds and wild strawberry plants. As I lower myself into the passage, I pull the couch back as far as I can with out actually blocking the top of the trap door, so as to hide it if someone looks in from the doorway.  

Once into the field I pick my way carefully among the long grass, wild flowers and stinging nettles until I reach a place that Trace used to call ´Strawberry heaven´.  Its a patch of ground that has absolutely no weeds, just strawberry plants and an old hammock high up in the branches of an ancient tree that once was the pride and joy of the school. 

I gather up about 15 strawberries and climb up the tree into the hammock. I had just settled down when I heard footsteps under me.

"So, let me get this straight you were in the hall way and you DIDNT GO TO HER AID !!?? MAN! You are dumb! So you just stood their and let that Jock carry off your crush!!!" Yelled Dylan, most popular boy who wasn't popular, if you get what I mean. 

"So your´e saying that you would have, if it was your crush?" That was so obviously Luke´s voice, I recognized it at once. Wait, hallway, crush, carry her off... were they talking about me?!? Does Luke have a Crush on me!!!
