RIIIIIIIING, RIIIIIIING RIIIIIIING!!!!! The bell rings as everybody stops their conversations with their friends, and rushes to class. I’m still feeling a bit emotional from the assembly, but nobody else is. I thought that after that assembly where the 10th grade finally joins together and shares, people would change and everything would be different….a good kind of different! But no, everybody forgets on Monday of course. When I get my binder from my locker, I think of the classes I have today:
1st period: Math
2nd period: science
3rd period: history
4th period: spanish
5th period: language
6th period: P.E.
7th period: Drama
I suddenly realize that Troy was in my math class! I have never been so excited about math before! It’s kind of sad that we don’t sit next to each other though. He sits on the whole other side of where I sit! Oh…..I have an idea! I walk up to my teacher and say,
“Mrs. Hinger? I was wondering if i could sit next to….Troy,” I say pretending to forget his name.
“And why is that?”, she asks suspiciously.
“I just feel like he is a good influence on me, and I can learn a lot from him.”
“Well okay, but remember, no talking,”, she says warningly.
Yes! I didn’t actually think she would fall for it but okay! I came up to the open seat next to Troy and sat down excitedly. The rest of math class went as usual, booooorrrriiiiiinnnng….Algebra…..equations…..fractions…. Zzz...Zzz….Zzz….
KATE!! KAAAAATE!!, yelled Mrs. Hinger yelled as I looked up woozy and eyes half open. Out of the half eyes I can see, I saw a bunch of people looking at me.
w...wh….where am I?, I said, sleepily. Then I realized...I was still in math, people looking at me, and whispering to each other. Oh my gosh, this is so embarrassing. I sat up, looking at my teacher.
Kate, your mom is waiting for you at the office, said Mrs. Hinger. Just right then, I got so scared, I jumped out of my chair, and ran to the office, with an uncomfortable feeling in my gut. When I got to the office, I saw my mom sitting in the chairs waiting for me. I walk up to her and ask what’s wrong. She tells me that we need to talk. So she sign me out of school, and we go home. In the car, I keep bugging my mom to tell me what’s going on. She stays silent until we get home. When we get home, I followed her into the kitchen.
Mom! Can you please tell me what’s going on??!??!?!
Okay...honey….i know you’re going to freak out about this and start complaining and start a tantrum, but its a decision we have made….she says.
Im waiting!!!!, I say impatiently.
I stand there….in shock. I can’t believe it! I CAN’T FREAKING BELIEVE IT!
ARE YOU SERIOUS!!! YOU CAN’T DO THIS MOM!!! ITS SO UNFAIR! IM NOT GOING ANYWHERE! NO MOM! YOU CAN’T JUST MAKE THIS DECISION WITHOUT ME! IM A HUMAN BEING TOO!!!! I THOUGHT YOU WOULD ACTUALLY COME UP AND ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT IT WITH ME...BUT NOOOOO YOU JUST GO RIGHT AHEAD AND JUST MAKE THIS HUUUUGE DECISIONS JUST LIKE A SNAP! UGHHHHH! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU!
I bust out of the kitchen, open the door, slamming it closed. I can’t believe she did that! I’m not going anywhere! She can go live by herself if she wants to. I get into my car, and drive back to school. Right now, that’s the only place I feel comfortable in….hard to believe right?
