6. Problem Child meets New Kid
(A.N. Hey guys! Sorry this chapter's a bit late and lengthy. I just wanted to show Mikey's side of things, and that turned out to take a lot longer than expected... Oops. Anyways, hope to enjoy!)
Chapter 6 "Problem Child Meets New Kid"
I actually kinda enjoyed school, but i had a reputation going that i didn't want to lose. I'm the school's Problem Child. I reck havoc and get detentions and all that. I've heard rumours that I used to sleep around, but I can confirm that's definitely not true.
I don't think people should be treated that way, used and then stepped on and thrown away like a cigarette. I can be quite protective of people when things like that happen. Like when those jocks were cat-calling my old friend, Natalie and I beat them all up .
I walk into the school building only to see those fucking jocks beating up their usual prey, Ashton. I don't know him personally, but I can tell he's one of the nicest guys here. I felt bad for the kid.
Next thing I know, Tyler is yelling to Jake, "Hey, Jake! We got a watcher!" I turn my head slightly to see who I'm assuming to be the new kid, and I'm going to be honest, I found him quite attractive.
The bastards started picking on him, and before I could go and help, my so called friends were suddenly gathered around me. The only one who I really thought was my friend was Calum. We've known each other for the longest time. He's the only one who knows about my past and my parents. Anyways, everyone, except the two of us, starts talking about how much they hate school, who they just hooked up with, and other stuff I really don't care for.
I try to find a way out of the stupid conversation. I really didn't want to be late for class. Sadly, everyone stayed gathered around me until long after the tardy bell rings. As soon as they all start making their way to all their classes, I pick up my pace and jog to mine.
I walk into Maths about 10 minutes late, and Ms. Lozano just nods to me,
Gesturing for me to take my seat. I look up to see that the New Kid and Ashton are sitting right in front of me. I noticed he was wearing a Fall out boy shirt, and they just so happen to be one of my favorite bands. The New Kid seemed to stare at me as I walked by, and I didn't mind at all. Let me just say, he was a lot more attractive up close.
Yes, before you ask, I am gay. No one knows except Cal, not even my aunt. If anyone at the school comes out publicly, then they are in for it, which I find completely stupid. It's not like we're all murderers, we haven't done anything wrong, we just like people of the same gender, no big deal!
After a while of Ms. Lozano's teaching, I decided to go for it, and casually compliment him on his shirt. I tap on his shoulder and say, "Nice shirt, Kid.
He blushed madly and mumbled a thank you.
I went on to introduce my self, "You must be the New Kid, I'm Michael."
He tells me his name is Luke. And all I have to say is that I'm already slowly falling for him.
