"Are you even going to school today...??" I wondered, staring crossly at Jace, who was half-asleep on the sofa.
"Nah. I'd much rather stay here and recover from all the banging I did last night..." He doubled over, pretending he were about to throw up.
"You filthy... RRRRR!!" Graving my backpack, I stormed out.
At school, I bumped into a girl from my chemistry class, Becca Harrington.
"Oh, hi Becca!" I waved, but she ignored me. Hmm.
"Becca?" I wondered as she turned away. "Becca. It's me, Zoey Hayes. Zoey from-"
"Shut up Hayes!" Becca erupted, whirling around in a viscious tornado. "Can't you see I'm trying to read the board?!"
I moved in closer to get a good look at the advertisement billboard. "What's it say?" I wondered, curious. "Ooh, a play!"
"Doofus, I'M trying out for Belle. It is Beauty and The Beast, after all." She pompously pimped her gold, curly locks. "And I am obviously the Beauty!!"
I looked a but puzzled, but Becca only snorted in my confusion. "Don't fret, Hayes. You can still make yourself useful by auditioning as Mrs. Potts- you even have the weak,,trembling voice of Chip, so there would be no problem in you playing him either!" She snickered uncontrollably.
I blushed, embarrassed though angry. To change the subject I blurted, "So who did you bang last night??"
Becca seemed offended by the odd, vague question at first, but soon figured it out.
"Oh, you mean, at Ryan's party? Hayes, do you know ANYTHING about me?! I am not a low-class BIMBO like you!" She smirked, giving me an uneasy feeling. "I threw my OWN party! And I banged every boy there!"
Becca blew a kiss to a random guy passing by us. She threw him her cell number on a small slip of paper, too, and he caught it and stuffed it in his pants pocket.
Becca giggled her innocent giggle. "I'm passing these out to all the guys, so we can easily discuss our own sexiness, because we're just THAT hot- and the girls, too, so we can schedule sleepovers and manicures!"
This conversation was steering towards quite uncomfortable matters, and I had let it. Crap.
"Well, it's been fun, but..."
The bell rang! It saved me!
I was out of there in a flash!
...Right after catching Becca's number!
She was inviting me to her slumber party that night, and wanted me to call her if I was bringing snacks!
