Extravagance

Tori Ortega was ordinary. She didn't ask for much, even though her parents could have bought the moon. She didn't ask for a boyfriend or really mess around with boys, until Issac. She didn't ask for any of what happened to her to happen to her, but once one bad thing happens, it spirals out of control.

11. Announcements

    She opened her eyes through the cloudiness.

    “Tori, Tori! Are you there” she heard Issac shout. She shook her head carefully.

    “Sorry” she said trying to get up.

    “No, you need to stay down” Issac implied.

    “Seriously I’m fine. I just locked my knees for too long” she lied, not willing to admit the truth.

    “Well to make sure you don’t pass out again, I am walking you to class” Issac stated.

    “Well, I am actually fine. But who am I to refuse someone walking me to class” she flirted (slightly).

    They were half way through history when an announcements roared through the classroom.

    “Tori Ortega report to the office” the wall sp0ke. Immediately her eyes grew wide with fright. The usual ‘ooo's’ exploded from class. She smiled sheepishly and got up and grabbed her bag to walk to the office, a slight tug holding her back.

    “Oh here, let me help” Issac spoke calmly, hurting more than helping. She knew every girl's eyes were scolding her behind her. She smiled and watched as Issac unsnagged her backpack. She smiled in thanks and walked to the office.

    “What did I do” she thought. She couldn’t remember. She had fallen, ran into Issac. Those were the only things she could think of.

    She rounded the corner to the office to and saw Cora running up to her.

    “T0ri, Tori” she screamed.

    “Well, hi there Cora Bora what are you doing here” Tori asked. Before Cora could answer however, Harriet walked out of the office.

    “Tori, we must go shopping now” her mother screeched excitedly.

    “Ummm, Mom, I was in class, is it that important” she asked trying to escape from the hell that was shopping with Harriet Ortega.

    “No, your cousin has just called and announced that she was getting married, this weekend! We must go shopping and buy dresses and gifts” Harriet reported.

    “Which cousin” Tori questioned.

    “Linda” Harriet squealed, “She also wants you to be one of her bridesmaids, but she told me to tell you something else”.

    “What” Tori asked slightly intrigued (Linda had always been her favorite cousin and they were fairly close, she knew that Linda had gotten engaged but didn’t think the wedding would be so soon).

    “She wants you to bring your own date” Harriet chirped.

    “So who are you gonna bring as your date” Linda bugged.

    “I don’t know yet, I have someone in mind, but I don’t know” Tori answered.

    “Think he could survive a Ortega family wedding” Juliet asked? (another one of her cousins)

    “Well, he survived a Harriet Ortega dinner and snuck into my window after waiting outside for hours” she stated.

    “Well, if you don’t bring him I will” Emma laughed. (Linda’s best friend)

    “Well, I guess I should call him then shouldn’t I” Tori pondered.

    “Like Em’s said, if you don’t I will” Juliet said. With that she picked up the phone and dialed Issac Galmen’s number.
