I sat down in my first hour class, Language. Luckily, with this being the last week of school, we aren't doing anything at all. We have a cool teacher.
"Alright, class. If anyone comes into this classroom, act like this is what were doing." Mr. Jones said writing page numbers on the white board. Everyone laughed and turned to go sit and talk with their friends.
I don't have any good friends in this class so I pulled out my phone and put in my earbuds. I was listening to Cage The Elephant when I saw someone sit down next to me out of the corner of my eye. I lifted my head to see the new kid.
"Ethan, my names Ethan." He smiled and held out his hand.
"I'm Andie. Welcome to this place of high education and great food." I laughed and he laughed too. Wow, he's so cute. Not like he'd like me, I'm a big girl. Nobody likes big girls.
"What are you listening to?" He asked peeking at my phone screen.
"Uh, Shake Me Down by Cage The Elephant. You've probably never heard if it, everyone's always interested in the pop music."
"Ew, pop music. I love that band! Are you kidding? I like you already." He reached for one of my earbuds and put it in his ear.
I blushed and looked down hoping he didn't see.
"So, uh, why did you move here so late in the year?" I asked him.
"Well, it's a long story.." He had my phone in his hands and he went to contacts. "But, call me tonight, and I'll tell you." He smirked and added his number.
"Call? You mean you'd rather not text? I like you already." I laughed and he smiled.
Ethan and I spent the rest of the class period talking about bands, and the swag fags around us. He's just super cool. A boy, is actually talking to me. I can't believe it!
After going to two more classes, the bell rang for lunch. I told Ethan I'd be waiting for him by the main doors so we could get together for lunch.
I had my head down messing with the many bracelets on my wrist, when Ethan grabbed my shoulder.
"Hey you, let's get some food." He started walking toward the lunch line.
"Now I'm telling you, this food is nothing to get excited about!" I told Ethan. He'd been talking about how he wanted to try the food here so bad.
"We will see." He winked at me.
"Aw, look at her. The fatty has a crush on the new kid!" Ben, he biggest asshole ever said walking up behind Ethan and I in line.
"Wha-" I was cut off by Ethan.
"So what if she does? And don't you ever call her fat in front of me again." Ethan stood in front of Ben, shoving him back.
"Bro, calm the fuck down. It's okay, she knows she's fat, and so does everyone else. Look at her." Bed laughed in Ethan's face.
My face got red and I put my head down. It doesn't even matter anymore.
"Fuck. Off." Ethan spat in Bens face.
"Or what?" Ben stepped up to Ethan.
Ethan just leaned to whisper into Bens ear, "Wouldn't you like to know.."
And with that, Ethan turned back to face me and looked at me with sad eyes.
"What..?" I asked uncomfortably.
"That's so wrong the way people treat you. I barely even know you, and I think you're kick ass. You're absolutely beautiful, I have no idea what those fags see."
"Oh.. Thank you, really. That made my day. Just, know you don't have to stick up for me every time that happens. They'll eventually just start shit with you, it's not worth it." I don't want Ben and his posse to pick fights with Ethan.
"Of course it's worth it, you're worth it." He smiled.
