2. At History

   "So what are you doing for the holidays, Maria?", Heather asks as she pulls a purple, sparkly pen from her Vera Bradley pencilcase. "We're visiting my abuela's mansion!", Maria put emphasis on abuela. She was obviously trying to impress Heather with her Spanish. Heather rolled her icy blue eyes. "What about you Anderson?", Trevor sits back and stares Heather down. Butterflies bounce around in her stomach. "I'm staying home, with my mom and dad, nothing special," I say as cool as possible. "Nice," Trevor grins at me. Heather feels blushing in her cheeks. "And you, Trevor?", Maria puts her dark hair in a low poytail. "Cousins are coming over, you know..," he puts his hands behind his head and sits back. Heather discreetly inhales his strong Axe colonge. Just then, a geek comes up to Heather and smiles.  "What are you smilin' at?" Heather snaps at the girl. "Nothing...I'm just admiring you and Maria's outfits...they're fabalicious!", the girl smiles wider. Heather looks at Maria and Trevor in horror, then to the girl and cackles in the girl's greasy face. The smile on the girl's face vanishes and she stomps to the back of the classroom, head lowered in shame. Heather giggles in her palm, Trevor chuckles to himself, and Maria simply cracks up. "What a loser," Heather rolls her eyes. The teacher tumbles into the room, "Hello, class. Today, we are going to talk about...," he tugs down a wall map and slaps his hand on Asia, "Ancient Asians." The class groans in reply. Trevor drapes his arm on the back of Heather's chair and she feels blushing in her cheeks.
