4. The Bet

(Sorry for any mistakes)

Brian's POV

"Are you sure about this bet Brian?"

I rolled my eyes before turning to face Nathan. "Yes. This is going to be fun plus its a way to make some easy money. There is no way that John is going to win this bet. Plus think of the great feeling of being able to embarrass him in front of the whole school".

Nathan looked at me uneasily before sighing and nodding his head and turning his attention back to the television. Nathan was the only person that i considered my friend. He was with me from the beginning, of high school that is. We had met freshmen year and over the years he was the only one that I felt i could truly trust and confide in. I remember how we had met like it was just yesterday. It was the first day of school and i was walking around trying to find my classes. I had heard some slamming and some yelling and me being the curious naive boy that i was i went to see what was happening. I saw Nathan pressed up against the lockers by some big meat head jock. To this day i still have no idea what happened. All i saw that day was red and before i knew what was happening i had the stupid jock on the floor while I pounded his face in. It wasn't until later that i found out the asshole's name....John. Even his name was enough to make me mad. I hated him with greatly, with every fiber of my being. I couldn't stand him at all. I hated the idea of him even succeeding in anything at all. Which brings me to the bet that i had made with him earlier today.

I was minding my on business when i heard him talking to his friends. I couldn't help but to overhear him talking about the new girl. Apparently her name was Emily Walter. "I am going to have her screaming my name before  you know it. No girl can resist me" said John. I rolled my eyes and continued to listen to their conversation. "Yeah totally man, she'll be yours in no time" said one of his friends. That's it! These guys have got to be kidding me. I slowly walked out from to face them.

"I beg to differ" i said to them with a smirk on my face. They all turned to me shocked.

"What did you say" John said turning to face me.

"You heard me John. I really doubt that you could get the new girl at all. I'm sure she is smarter than to get with the likes of you. I mean come on do you really think that you can win her over?"

John's face instantly turned into one of anger and embarrassment. I'm sure no one else saw it, he covered it up pretty quickly.

"Oh please like you could actually do any better than me" he scoffed. 

"I know I can" I responded. " In fact, I bet I can make her fall in love with me"

"Ok then, let's make a bet then. If you can make her fall in love with you by the end of the first semester then I'll allow you to embarrass me in front of the school in any way that you want. Oh and throw in fifty bucks, just for the heck of it."

I smirked thinking of all the ways that I could make his life horrible when I won the bet. I could make him run around naked, but that would mean that I would probably be a victim of that horrible sight. Maybe I could-

"But, if you lose then I get to embarrass you" John finished. Hmmm what to do? Of course i wasn't going to back down, no way. I looked at his extended hand and grabbed it and shook it putting pressure on it.

"It's settled then. Good luck Baer" he said before walking away. I glared as he walked away. I hated being called by my last name. That was the least of my worries. I now had to make some girl fall in love with me. Damn. That means I had to spend time with her. Great. I had about two months to win this bet and there was no way that i was going to lose. Too much was at stake here. 

Hello. It's really really short but this chapter was just to explain the bet and how it got started. That's all. I'll try to upload another chapter tomorrow. Bye :)
