6. Chapter 4

Avery

I watched as Preston dusted himself off and walked away, a goofy grin on his face.

An invisible tiger claw sliced through my heart. Just by looking at him, I could tell that Preston had a crush on the girl he was talking to.

Hot tears stung my eyes as I shifted through my locker, blindly sorting books.

I picked up my backpack and stuck my hand inside, looking for my phone. What time is it?

My  hand stuck something elastic and a memory wriggled in the in the back of my mind. I brought out a small elastic band. Now, you may not think this is very interesting, but it triggered a sharp memory.

My sixth grade teacher (A/N: My class actually did this is grade 6), Ms. Alison held up an elastic band.

"Make up a little promise to yourself. An oath. One thing about yourself that no one likes." she twirled the elastic in her fingers. I then noticed she had a matching one on her wrist.

She tossed me the band which I caught gracefully(note the sarcasm).

"Make an 'oath', Avery." My teacher made quotation marks in the air with her fingers.

My mind immediately flew to Preston. Don't make a fool of yourself in front of him.

I slipped it on. "Got one." I said.

"Okay," she replied. "Now every time you break that oath, do this."

She stretched the elastic and let it slap back on her wrist. "Then switch wrists."

She did so.

I stared at my hand. I should be slapping myself no end, I thought.

Now, looking at the band again, the same thought came to mind. I put on a determined face. This time, I was going to keep that promise.

With that, I slipped it on.
