1. Tutoring With Harold
I tapped my pencil impatiently, ready to get out of math. "Miss Ava, would you like to answer the question?" My math teacher, Mr. Anthony asked. I did answer his question because I didnt know it. "Alright. Would anyone else like to answer?" He asked once more and no one's hand flew up, except Harold's. "Ah, thank you very much, Harold." And the nerd ended up answering the question. The bell rang and I got up as quickly as possible. I walked down the halls to my locker and opened it to grab my history textbook for homework.
I closed the locker and Harold came walking up to me. "Hello, Ava. I see lately your grades have been decreasing." He said. "Okay...so?" I asked as I finished putting all my books in my backpack. "So, I figured I could help you by tutoring you." Harold said smiling at me. "How much are you asking for?" I asked while looking through my small wallet. "Oh, nothing. Keep your money. I like to help people- if thats alright with you." He said. "Umm..okay." I said. "Great. Let's go." Harold said as he walked away.
"What about pep squad practice?" I asked and he turned around and looked at me. "Do you want to pass high school or live on the streets?" Harold asked and he pushed up his glasses. "Fine. I'm coming." I said slinging my backpack over my shoulder and walking behind him. He was smart, seemed nice, but he was also a nerd. "Only use nerds for homework to copy off." A popular girl named, Abby Lane, said to her group of girls.
I dont exactly agree with Abby Lane because we have to take those test near the end of high school and I dont want to fail. That's why I have Harold with me in the library. "Well dont just stand there. Get our your textbooks and pencil and let's get started!" He said when I got to the table. "I hope this is worth missing pep squad practice." I said to myself but not aloud.
