Seventeen year old Grayson Hobbs is the son of Carol and Steve Hobbs who are a very sweet couple, but their son... Not so much. Grayson has always been and always will be a party guy. That is until he meets Miranda Grey, the sweetest, quietest girl who completely turns Grayson's world upside down.


3. He Didn't Do It

                                                                 Miranda's P.O.V.

  "Come on Miranda, this will be a lot easier if you just cooperate." Mr. Jameson is getting impatient on the other side of his desk. He has been grilling me for the past half-hour. I keep refusing to say who did it. I know he will not believe me if I said it that Grayson did it but didn't mean to even though it is true.

"Is there anyone in your life that is hurting you?" I remain quiet. Mr. Jameson got so irritated, he slammed his fist down on the desk and said "Ok, that's it! I'm calling both of your parents to bring them in for questioning." I jump up from my seat as fast as I could. I block his hand from the phone.

"You can't do that!"

"Well why not?"

"Because I did it."

I whip around to see Grayson standing in the doorway

"Ahh, Mr. Hobbs, would you like to come in and explain why in the world you would do that?" He walks in and sits down.

"Sure. I know it looks bad, but it really was an accident. We were at a party Saturday night when I got in a fight with her boyfriend-"

"So you used that as an excuse to hurt her?"

"No no! You didn't let me finish. When the fight was over, she came after me to apologize about him, but when she came up to talk to me, she came up behind me and grabbed my shoulder. Since I didn't see her I thought it was her boyfriend coming to finish things. I swung behind me without looking and I ended up hitting her. I never would have done that if I knew it was her." Mr. Jameson stares him down for a second.  

"Yeah, okay, sure, we'll go with that. Look Grayson, everyone knows that isn't true, I know it's not, she knows it's not, and you know it's not. I know who you are, Mr. Hobbs. I know that you took your anger out on her, and you are making her keep her mouth shut so you don't get what you deserve. I've seen this before-"

"NO! You haven't." Grayson cuts him off by jumping out of his seat so fast, it tumbles back and slams his hand down on the desk.

"I know I do terrible things, I know what reputation I have. I realize that I'm not a good kid, ok? I know. I realize that talking back to teachers is bad, vandalizing property is bad, I know getting in fights even when the other people deserve it is bad. But did you notice that I never said I did something terrible to someone who didn't deserve it? Oh yeah because that is totally something I would do. I might screw up, but I'm not a monster." He stands there with his face red, his chest heaving up and down and with his veins in his neck about to pop out.

"I still don't believe you.' Mr. Jameson replies flatly.

"I have known you for a while now and I know you weren't always like this. But then, you surprised everyone with your behavior. I, for one, never expected this from you, but now, here we are. How do I know that this something else that you did that could have shocked me had I not known already who you are?" Grayson just stares at him for a second before responding.

"Because weather you believe it or not, I have boundaries too. I know they aren't the same as yours. I know they aren't as good as they need to be. But I still have some. And hitting a girl is where I cross the line."

"Nice try. I'm calling both of your parents as well as hers and we are all going to discuss this issue."

                                                                             Grayson's P.O.V.

 I cant believe she isn't defending me. She knows what's true, but she's just sitting there not doing anything. I just look over to see her slumped down in her chair rubbing her left temple with her index and middle finger as if she is stressed, when in reality, she isn't the one in trouble. My parents are probably going to ship me off for this. Mr. Jameson sits behind his desk on the phone with my father. My dad is so angry I can hear him yelling through the phone when I'm on the other side of the desk. When he finally gets off the phone with him, he calls Miranda's dad. I could hear him yelling on the other end as well.

"Why is your dad yelling? didn't you tell him it was an accident." I leaned over and whispered to Miranda.

"Yes, but now since we're in the principal's office, he probably doesn't believe me"

"You have to tell them. Do you know how much trouble I'm gonna be in?"

"Yes! I know! I'm trying I'm doing the best I can! They aren't believing me! What do you want me to do?!"

"Ssshhhh!!!!!" Vice principal Norman shushes us

"No talking!" I just roll my eyes and slump back in my chair.

"Your parents will be here momentarily. While waiting, I got some business to tend to. In the meantime, you will stay her QUIETLY!" He emphasizes the last part.

"Don't move." With that he left. We sit there for a couple seconds, but then she speaks up,

"I'm sorry. I'm trying. I don't know what else to do or say."

"I know, I think I'm just screwed. I'm also sorry. I shouldn't have said what I did in the parking lot or what I did a second ago." Oh my God, I never apologize. what is happening?

"Do you think you'd want to see me this weekend? Not because of that, but I feel like we got off on the wrong foot. I'm sorry." Okay, did that seriously just come out of my mouth?

"I don't know... what would you want to do?"

"I don't know. Anything you want." Before she could respond, Vice principal Norman walked back in

"I thought I said no talking." He stands in the doorway with his eyebrow raised and his arms crossed over his chest with our parents behind him.

"And i thought you knew I never listened." I shot back. Miranda slaps my arm warning me to stop. He just walks back to his desk and our parents came in sitting in the chairs behind us. Miranda's parents give her a look that makes them look scared, angry, and worried all on the same time. Mine on the other hand look at me like there is going to be World War III.

He first addresses our parents saying "Thank you for coming down today. I think that everyone here knows that there is an issue to be addressed. Now, mister Hobbs, Do you want to explain t everybody why on earth you would hit Miranda?" 

"I've already told you the dadgum story! I thought she was someone else. I swung behind me before looking. I never would have done it if i knew it was her for God sake!" My mother hits my shoulder from behind for 'taking the Lord's name in vain. Whatever.

"That is a load of Bull-"

"John..." Miranda's father is cut off by her mother. 

"I know guys like he, son." He continues.

"I know them because people in my own family was one of those guys and still are. This was no accident. You hurt my baby and now I'm going to-" He is getting out of his seat to come over to me with is face red, his entire head basically considering the fact that he is bald, and his veins bulging out of his neck when he is cut off by my dad stepping in front of him, trying to stop him while the douche bag behind the desk tried to stop and calm him down by trying to reach his hands over the desk.

He sits back down and Norman continues.

"It's obvious we are having issues so lets make this as simple as possible. Mr. Hobbs you are suspended for a week."
