11. Making it Through

Zelo's P.O.V.

Beep, beep beep! went the sound of the alarm clock. I looked away from my math textbook to see that It was already 6:30 am. I beat you again, I thought. If you wake up early, you get extra time to study before class starts. But today, I couldn't concentrate. The constant battle in my head kept my thoughts wondering. Should I go over to Carter's house and bring her to school to make sure she's ok? Or would that be too weird and make her think that I'm too clingy? Giving up, I put on my uniform and headed downstairs to eat breakfast. After washing the dishes and brushing my eat, I heard the doorbell ring. Walking towards the front door, I looked out the window to see Chris, Aiden, Lewis, Gabriel and Damian. I opened the door.

"Hey man," said Damian as they dropped their knapsack by the door as flopped onto the sofa.

"Why do you guys always come over so early in the morning? You guys live right next door!" I said.

"Maybe because we love you too much to much to be away from you for more than a day?" replied Aiden. "Jokes. We had a math question for you," he said as he got up to grab his textbook. By the time I was done explaining, it was 7:30 am.

"Zeland, do you think we can hang out with Carter and Kevin for lunch again today? I don't want it to be just us like before," asked Gabriel.

"I don't really know," I said. I really didn't know. Are we friends?

Carter's P.O.V.

Kevin stopped by my house and Kevin, Callum and I went to school altogether. I guess it was a bit awkward with my brother there. The two of them kept talking about the baseball game from last night. Once we arrived at school, Callum left us.

"Why aren't you going along with him?" I asked Kevin.

"I didn't get a chance to talk to you. Why, did you get tired of me already?" he said, pouting. Making our way inside the building, we talked about whatever came to mind; the formation of the clouds, how the game was last night, even why carrots are orange. By the time I reached my homeroom class, I saw JML already in their seats with their textbooks out.

"See you at lunch?" He asked me.

"Yeah, sure!" I said.

"Why don't you ask the guys to come and eat with us? They're pretty cool to hang with," he said nodding his head towards the direction of JML.

"Sure, why not?"

"Ok then. Have fun with Mr. Hayes," he said ruffling my hair. Laughing, I went inside the classroom and took my place by the window beside Zelo. Hey, I tried to say as I waved to him. Getting what I wanted to say, he waved back with a huge smile on his face. Blushing, i looked out the window. It was now 8:30, class was about to start. Mr. Hayes entered and everyone took their places. After homeroom was over, math was next. Now, we were learning about graphing quadratic relation. After the incident from last class, everyone was all ears. All of a sudden, my stomach started to grumble. Looking at my watch, there was 10 minutes before lunch. Oh yeah, I forgot to ask them about lunch. Tearing out a piece of paper from my notebook, I scribbled, Hey, It's me :) Do you guys want to eat with us at lunch? Thinking that this would suffice, I folded the paper four times. Nudging Zelo with my elbow, his eyes fell away from the board and looked at me. Handing him the paper, he opened and read it. Nudging me back, he made the ok sign with his fingers and smiled. It was set, we were all eating together.

By the time the bell rang, everyone got up end left. Unexpectedly, Mr. Hayes was the first to leave.

"So, you guys ready to go?" I said.

"Go where?" asked Chris.

"Didn't Zeland tell you? We're all going to eat lunch together. Oh yeah, and Kevin's coming too."  I included.

"It's ok. Come on, Let's go eat!" cheered Gabriel. Making our way towards the courtyard. Kevin was the first one there. Sitting beside him was Callum. So I guess everyone's eating together? I take my place between Callum and Kevin. I smiled. This famliar feeling was soothing. Everyone started eating and talking. looking towards Kevin, I could see him talking to Zelo. This seemed right. Making friends and having the old ones back was great. When Scarlett comes, then it will be even easier to make it through highschool.
