15. New Friends and Mischievous Plans

Jaelyn's POV

After a night of excitement, I plopped right into bed. Now it is morning, and I dread going to school. I don't want to see the plastics again. They are such a pain in the butt. Now that Jace and I are friends, Amber will be even more jealous.

I get dressed, I am wearing black ripped skinny jeans, a black tank top, a blue flannel tied around my waist, and a black hat. I brush my teeth, and go out to the kitchen. Jenna is already there, as usual. The boys are still asleep of course, but I was the last of the girls to wake up.

They are all in the kitchen now making breakfast. "Morning sleepyhead," says Jenna.

"Morning," I say while yawning. I help them with breakfast. The boys smell the food, so they wake up. They come out looking groggy. They sit down, and devour their food. We have to head to school now.

"You guys can stay here or go out," I say.

"Have any places you guys recommend?" asks Lia.

"Central Park," Jenna replies.

"There's also a really good cafe down the street from our apartment. They have really good food," I say.

"Yeah it's the best, you guys can go there for lunch if you want," says Jenna.

"Bye guys," Jenna and I say.

"Bye," they all reply. We head outside, to the subway. This will be an interesting day. Once we get to school, we head to our lockers like always. I put some of my books in, then slam it shut. Jace's face is right there, when I shut it.

"Ah, you scared me!" I say.

"Sorry," he replies. We start walking to class, he has math with me first. Jenna is talking to Sam. Emily and Abby walk up to us. Abby starts talking to Alex, and Chris and Emily are in an argument right away.

"So you guys are actually on time huh?" I say.

"What are you talking about? We are always on time," he says smirking.

"Whatever," I say, and lightly punch his arm. Everyone starts staring at us. Oh yeah, I forgot how feared they are. I guess they are only nice to people they know. I still don't know much about them. I have no idea what bad things they have done.

We say our goodbyes and head to our classes. I take a seat next to Jace for the first time. Amber and Stacy walk into the room. Amber's eyes land on me, and then she looks at Jace next to me. If looks could kill, I would be dead in an instant.

She and Stacy start walking up to us. When she gets here she puts her hand on her hip. "This is my spot," she says.

"We don't have a seating chart," I say.

"I always sit next to Jace," she says.

"So, I was here first," I say.

"That's it, I tried to be nice. Don't make me kick you out of that seat. Jace tell her to get out of my seat," she says with a pouty face. Jace might fall for this, I mean he hasn't dated her yet. For a reason that is unknown. She totally loves him, and if he wanted her he could have her in a second. She is the most popular girl in the school.

I start to get up, but then Jace surprises me by grabbing my arm, and pulling me back down. I look at him questionably. "Yeah, that's not going to happen," he says.

"What? Why!" She says.

"She was already there in the first place," he says.

"Fine, whatever," she says then flips her hair and walks away. Stacy follows her like a dog afterwards.

"Why'd you do that?" I ask.

"Because you're my friend now duh," he replies.

"Oh yeah, thanks for that," I say. Class starts, and the Math teacher begins his lesson.

"You will have to do a project now. You're partner will be the person to your right. It is a competition of the best project. I will personally pick the winner. The winner gets eight free concert tickets to the festival this year," the class room starts muttering in excitement.

"I will assign each group something to teach, and they will have to teach and help them learn it, to a group of students outside of this class. The students will then take a quiz on it. The group with the most creative teaching, and learning idea, and the group who's students get the most correct answers on the quiz will win," he says.

"Looks like we're partners," I say smiling at Jace. The teacher tells everyone their subject. Wow, we got an easy subject.

"Wow, we got a hard one," says Jace.

"What? Are you kidding me. This is easy. Like middle school math," I say.

"So you actually get this stuff? Man am I lucky to have gotten you. Last year I got partnered with Chris. We didn't even do anything," he says.

"Yeah, well I think if you really try, you can understand too. I bet you have some good ideas in that brain of yours too," I say.

"Really?" he asks.

"Of course, I believe in you," I say.

"Well, let's get brainstorming," he says. After an hour, the bell rings. I say goodbye to Jace, and head to my next class. Jenna had to go to some art class thing first period. So I didn't sit next to her in math, so she gets stuck with Aaron the weird guy in our class. I feel bad for her. Hopefully someone in our friend group can win, then we all can go.

Once I get to history, I spot Jenna, Emily, and Abby.

"Hey, how was your art thing?" I ask.

"Good," Jenna replies.

"Well you missed this project thing in math. We had to be grouped together with the person next to us. Then we have to teach a math lesson to students in a creative way. You sadly got Aaron as your partner," I say.

"Are you kidding me? This is just my day. Who's your partner?" she asks.

"Jace," I say.

"Cool," she says. We all sit down in our seats. After a boring history lesson, we finally have lunch.

"We should sit with Riley and her friend group. You know them right?" I ask Emily, and Abby.

"Yeah, they are really nice," Emily says.

"Let's go find them," Abby says. We search across the lunch room. We finally find them. We all walk over to their table.

"Hey, can we join you?" I ask.

"Of course," Riley says. We all take a seat.

"Let me introduce you guys. Riley this is Jenna, Jenna this is Riley. You guys already know Emily, and Abby," I say.

"Nice to meet you Jenna," Riley says.

"You too," Jenna replies.

"Everyone this is Jaelyn, and this is Jenna," Riley says to the rest of her group of friends.

"Nice to meet you guys," I say.

"You too," they all say in unison.

"This is Thea Lambert," Riley says gesturing to a pretty brown haired girl. She has gorgeous long curly brown hair.

"What's your last name Riley? Also I forgot to say my last name which is Amor. Jenna's is Bancroft," I say.

"Cooper, last this is Olivia Clark," she says gesturing to a pretty blonde haired girl. She has pretty blue eyes.

"We're all going to be great friends," says Thea. We all eat, and talk. They are all really funny, and nice. It feels like we have been friends forever. The bell rings and we say our goodbyes.

I have science with Abby, and Alex. I will be stuck between those two lovebirds. They are way to shy to ask each other out. They need some pushing. I will work out a plan with the girls later. Jenna and I have a lot of matchmaking to do.

Once I get to science, I walk over to Abby. Alex comes in shortly after, and walks over to us. After a boring class period, and them secretly looking at each other science is over. I have my last class, my favorite. It's health, we all have that period together. It's a blast, the boys make the funniest comments.

Once in health, we all meet up. We all sit next to each other. We are all talking while the writing notes. "Excuse me, if you know this so well will one of you tell me the components of physical fitness," the teacher says. We all fall silent.

"Jace, why don't you tell me," the teacher says.

"Um, the components are muscles and balance," he says.

"Incorrect, why don't you tell me Jaelyn," she says smiling at me smugly.

"Good luck with the answer," Jace whispers to me.

"Cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition," I respond. Her jaw drops in surprise. She quickly closes it, and regains her composure.

"Correct," she says then goes back to teaching.

"How'd you know that?" Jace asks.

"We always learned it each year back home," I say. After a fun class period of talking, school was finally over. My only run-in with Amber was during math class. Jenna, and I get our stuff and head home. Once home, we are greeted by our siblings. Our parents are also here.

"How was school?" Mama S asks.

"Good," I say.

"Also good," Jenna says.

"What did you guys do?" I ask.

"We went to Central Park, like you guys said," Matthew says.

"It was beautiful," Mom says.

"We also went to Café Khirua. (Key-Ruha)," says Caleb.

"It was really good," Nicole says.

"I wish we had one at home," says Papa M.

"Me too," says dad.

"Glad you guys liked it," I say.

"What about you guys. How did you like Khirua and Central Park?" I ask gesturing to Mason and Lia.

"I had fun, and the food was delicious," replies Lia.

"Same here," says Mason. We all talk for awhile, then go on to do whatever. I pull Jenna aside into my room.

"So, what's our plan?" I ask.

"I'm not sure yet," she replies.

"Maybe we can just drop subtle hints. See how they feel about each other. Then drop hints about how awesome the other is," I say.

"I like how you think Amor," she says.

"Great, we can also try this to Abby and Alex. I think they would be so cute together. I'll text Emily the Plan, so she can be in on it," I say.

"I agree," Jenna says.

"I'll take Mason," I say.

"Great, then I'll take Lia," Jenna replies.

"Then we can both do Alex, Emily gets Abby. She is her best friend and all," I say.

"Yup sounds good," she says.

"Let's get started," I say.

I hope you guys like this chapter! Sorry I haven't updated in awhile. I hope you guys will like the new characters! Get ready for some new couples! Also I have a problem with present tense writing, so sometimes I say asked instead of ask etc. So forgive me if you see a mistake like that. I also changed the amount of classes Jenna and Jaelyn have together. Instead of five it's four classes. Also I added the new characters actresses, so look back on the introduction if you want to see it!
