Math went by faster than I thought. Marcel said he'd meet me outside so I just went straight to my locker. The hall ways were crowded so it took me a while to get to my locker. To be honest I really didn't want to do work today. I just wanted to go to sleep. I sighed and grabbed my bag. I sluggishly walked the front doors. I saw Marcel sitting on the steps.
"Sorry I took so long. The halls were so crowded I hardly got out alive!" I chuckled but Marcel didn't answer. He was quiet. "Hey,whats wrong?"
He looked up at me and shrugged." Just got a 70 on my quiz is all.." I sighed.
" Its not that bad! If i got a 70 quiz I'd be happy!"
He still didn't smile. I bit my lip and sat next to him. "C'mon. Lets go to my house. We don't have to work today. Besides we haven't even got to know each other.
His eyes were a bit teary. He stood up and dusted off his pants. "Alright.." I smiled and walked with him to my house.
We walked through the front doors and into my air conditioned house. I sighed in relief at the cool air."Chey? You home?" Tyler came down the stairs and slowly approached me and Marcel. "Who's this?" I smiled and put my hand on Marcel's shoulder. "This is Marcel. Marcel this is my big brother Tyler." Tyler was a lot bigger, muscle wise, than Marcel. But Marcel was almost the same height. Maybe around 5'11? I'm only 5'4 so they're all tall to me.
"Marcel helps me with math." Tyler chuckled. "Good because no one in this house has the slightest clue how to do math." Marcel laughed. I smiled. I liked seeing him smile.
I shuffled my feet."Uh well I'm gonna give him the grand tour of the house okay?" I took Marcel's hand and ran up the stairs. "Stay away from my room!" Tyler screamed from the bottom of the stairs.
I smiled."Ok so is the bathroom,nothing special." He chuckled. I opened the next door."This is my moms office,not important." I walked over to my room. "This is my room." We walked in and he looked around.
"You have such a big room! Its so cool!" I smiled. "Not entirely. If you want to see something cool, I do have another room." He looked at me. "Another room?" I walked out of my room and down the stairs. I turned down the hallways and to the basement. I flipped on the lights and saw the colorful room filled with paint. Unused canvas' laid in the corner.
Marcel's eyes roamed the room. "You paint?"
I nodded. "You seem surprised?" He walked over to my finished paintings that hung round the walls.
"Very! I would have never suspected you to be the creative type!" He turned to me with a shocked expression." I mean, You're really creative! You're beautiful! Wait..No I didn't mean that. I mean you're beautiful but-"
I laughed."Its okay. I know what you were trying to say." His face was beat red.
He coughed and looked over to the other side of the room. "You box as well?" I shook my head.
"Nah. My brothers a boxer in training." He looked fascinated. "Maybe he could give you lessons?"
He looked at me and shook his head."No no! I'll just get my butt kicked. And we don't need that happening ag-" He he paused and took a breath. "You know what, why don't we just go do homework?"
I weakly smiled. "Okay." Somethings not right with Marcel.
We ended up in the living room talking with Tyler. I mean we attempted to start our homework but I was more interested in getting to know Marcel a little better. I was on one side of the couch, Marcel on the other side.
"Okay so besides school what do you like to do for fun?"
He shrugged."I'm into mostly reading and World Of Warcraft." I stared at him for a minute. "Its a video game online." I 'oh'd' as he chuckled.
"Sorry I'm not into that kind of stuff..." I could feel my face getting warm.I didn't want Marcel to think I was stupid.
"No it's okay. Not everyone is familiar with online video games." I nodded.
"I'm not much of a gamer. I used to play video games with my brother when I was little but I just kinda stopped." Marcel stared at me for a while before Tyler broke the silence.
"So, Marcel, You staying for dinner? I'm making Chicken Parm." Marcel sucked in his lips and shook his head. "Thank you but my mothers probably worried sick about me." Marcel stood up grabbing his bag and hung it over his shoulders.
"Do you need a ride?" Tyler asked. "Oh no thank you. My house is only a couple blocks away." I smiled and walked him to the door.
"Well...That was fun. I liked getting to know you. You're a lot cooler than I expected." Marcel's face turned a light pink.
"Th-thanks.." He awkwardly looked down and shuffled his feet. "I'll see you tomorrow?" He asked.
"Yeah! Of course!" He smiled and walked down the block.
I walked back into the house. Tyler has leaning against the wall smiling at me. "What?" I asked.
"Nothing nothing. He just seems like a really nice boy." I narrowed my eyes at him. "Yeah..and?"
He chuckled and walked into the living room."Nothing."
