Sex Academy

I'm Laurel Carter, and I did not ask to go to this school.


8. Chapter 7


I wake up the morning with a serious case of bed hair. I haul myself out of bed to deal with it, and notice a strange piece of paper on my mirror.

Laurel, there is no school today. It's been cancelled due to a gas leak in one of labs, which has flooded the school. XD ~ Nath

I smile wickedly and run to my closet. Time for a whole day of YouTube and fangirling.

I log into Tumblr and before I know it, I've spent about an hour on my laptop. My stomach starts to growl and I decide to tame the beast.

I walk downstairs with a grin plastered on my face and saunter into the kitchen. I yank open the fridge door and grab the bag of washed and cut up carrots. I cut them up yesterday so I would have a snack for today.

My phone starts to ring and I take it out of my pocket. The phone flashes me a picture of a very attractive boy as the contact photo.

Ben's calling me! I think to myself as I answer the phone.

"Hey, babe!" I say cheerfully into the phone.

"Hey... Uh... I think we need to talk," he replies.

"Sure," I say, frowning. "Shoot."

"I think we should break up," he tells me.

I stand there, open mouthed in the kitchen, having just dropped my bag of carrots.

"I'm sorry... What?" I ask, hoping I hadn't heard correctly.

"We should break up," he repeats. "It's for the best. You go to boarding school now. How am I supposed to stay by myself until the end of the term?"

"You can by being a good boyfriend!" I yell.

"Look, look, look," he says, trying to calm me down. "This way, you're able to hook up with whoever you want to!"

"What do you think I am?! A slut?!" I scream.

"LAUREL!" Ben screams.

"FUCK YOU!" I scream in return and hang up the phone.

Lean against the wall and slide down it, resting in a sitting position on the floor. Tears start to flow down my cheeks. I've never been good at controlling my emotions.

"Laurel?" A whisper comes from the door.

I turn to find Xavier standing at the door, looking at me with an expression of pure concern.

"How much did you hear?" I groan.

"A... A lot," he tells me. At least he was honest.

He sits down next to me and puts his arm around my shoulder. He pulls me into him, hugging me gently.

"It's ok to cry," he tells me, stroking my hair.

What surprises me is the fact that it isn't the slightest bit sexual. It feels... Comforting. Trusting. Friendly.

I start to sob, my shoulders shaking ever so slightly. I ruin Xaviers new shirt, but he seems to not care.


One Hour Later

I pause the movie and turn to Jazz who smiles at me.

"What's up?" She asks me, then makes a pained expression. "Sorry, not the best time to ask that."

"That's fine. I just want to talk," I tell her.

"Ok," she replies, grinning.

"What do you want to do when you graduate?" I ask.

She thinks for a little bit, then answers with, "Obstetrics. I want to help women give birth. What about you?"

"I've always wanted to be an actress. Or an Author. Or a singer. I'm not sure," I reply.

She grins and grabs the remote which I'd dropped on the couch. She presses play and then slumps into the couch. She giggles softly as Cady tricks Regina into eating a Calteen Bar.


2 Hours Later

I slide down the stairs on my ass, laughing loudly as I go. However, I stop laughing as I'm greeted by Nath when I reach the bottom. Something's been a little bit off between us since last night. I raise an eyebrow at him and he grins.

"I love doing that!" He laughs.

I start to chuckle, but it quickly turns into full on laughing. I stand up, adjusting my skirt ever so slightly so that you can't see my knickers.

Nath gives me a hug and whispers, "your boyfriend was an idiot. He took you for granted. You're amazing."

I grin and hug him tighter. I whisper, "I know."

We start laughing again, and Jazz and Xavier enter the room. Somehow, Nath and I's hug turns into a group hug.

I don't think I'm going to hate going to school here.
