The Geek

Zella never thought she would end up with Marcel. Her best friend, Veronica, talked her into going to prom with him. Marcel really wanted a date for the dance, and Zella only said yes because she was going to be paid thirty bucks for it from Veronica. She never thought she would fall in love with him, and she never thought he would completely change.

Zella's P.O.V.

 

 

I know there are only a few more days until the dance, but I have a feeling these next three are going to be painful. I'm pretty sure Marcel told someone, and then that person would spread it across the school. I stopped in front of the school doors, and took a deep breath in. I pushed the door open and saw people. 

Surprisingly, no one was looking at me and they weren't laughing, calling me names or anything. Maybe he didn't tell anyone. I walked to my locker and Veronica tapped my shoulder. I smiled at her. She handed me money.

"What's this?"

"I told you that if you went to the dance with Marcel, I'd give you money,"

"Oh yeah. I'm only doing this because you were talking about it all day yesterday. And I need new shoes,'' I said looking down at my shoes. Veronica nodded in agreement.

"Well, I better go,"

"Why?"

"Marcel is coming," I looked past Veronica and noticed Marcel smiling at me. I smiled back slightly as he approached me. I watched Veronica leave me alone with him.

"Hi, Marcel,"

"Hey," 

"What did you want to talk about?"

"Nothing,"

"Then why are you here?"

"I need to know what you color your dress is gonna be," he smiled.

"Oh, um. Probably just black,"

"Okay. That's all I needed," he turned around and left. When he was no longer in sight, I groaned and hit my head against the locker. Jack Spree walked up to me. He was one of the hottest guys in school.

"Hey, Zella,"

"Hi, Jack,"

"I need to ask you something,"

"Yeah?"

"I was wondering if you maybe wanted to go to prom with me?"

"Oh, I would-" Then I remembered Marcel. "I would, but I already have a date to the dance,"

"With who?"

''Um,"

"Who is it? I won't laugh or anything,"

"Marcel," I said quietly. 

"That's funny, Zella. Now tell me,"

"It wasn't a joke. I'm going with Marcel,"

"Why are you going with Marcel?"

"Veronica paid me thirty dollars. You really think I wanted to go to the dance with that geek?"

 

Marcel's P.O.V.

 

 

I was walking through the hallway, and I saw Jack Spree talking to Zella.

"It wasn't a joke. I'm going with Marcel,"

"Why are you going with Marcel?"

"Veronica paid me thirty dollars. You really think I wanted to go to the dance with that geek?" I looked at her, but she didn't see me. Veronica paid her? Is this a joke? She is only going because Veronica paid her. I feel a tear escape my eye. I thought she was the one girl in the school who liked me, but apparently not. 

I slowly walked away, and ran out the doors to the back of the school. I sat down on the bench and put my face in my hands. I am such and idiot to think that a girl like Zella, would like me. I'm nothing to people. I'm just a geek. That's all I'll ever be.
