3. Lab Partners?

Dear Diary,

  Today is going to be a good day today is going to be a good day today is going to be a good day maybe if I say it 3 times it'll actually come true, or at least that's what I'm hoping. Today is the day we will get lab partners which should be interesting. What's the worst that could happen? Why did I say that? Now the worst possible thing is going to happen. Least for lunch we are having pizza! ~Marnie​         Since it's the first Tuesday of the month we have a softball meeting and I get to miss 10 minutes out of first period. Just because  I play softball I don't like to make myself out to be the stereotypical jock I just love the game and it's something to do unfortunately Samantha plays... Of course she thinks she's all that and a bag of chips. The meeting is finally over an we all head back to class. Math seemed like it dragged on forever, then the bell rung and it's time for chemistry. I would lie if I said I wasn't nervous because I am. What if I am partners with Dylan and I make a complete fool of myself, but what if I'm not partners with him and he falls for someone else? Then my love life would definitely be a pattern and I will have no other choice than to grow old to be this creepy cat lady with 100 cats. I need to get out more. " Everyone please stand in the front of the room" Ms. Parker says. " I have assigned everyone their lab partners so their will be no one left out." Oh great she picked them and maybe she will put me and Dylan together. " I chose to do this is alphabetical order by your last names" oh shit no no no this can't be happening that means... " Marnie you and James will be partners." Yay and I tried so hard to avoid an awkward situation. My last names Collins and James last name is Dillard and we are the only C and D in the class just freaking fantastic. " Marnie and James you will be at table 11." when Ms. Parker said that Jules gave me that go to hell look ugh as if I had any control over this. James just looked at me and whispered I'm sorry. " Jules you will be partners with Kat."  at least she got partnered with the smartest girl in school so she'll pass every assignment. Yeah that didn't help. Samantha walked up to Dylan and said fingers crossed ;) then all you hear is "Samantha honey don't do that" and it came from the one and only Logan Reynolds. He's the kind of guy that you either love or hate, he's got that asshole I say what want kind of thing. He's from the south and is not afraid to show it. The whole class is laughing at his comment except for Samantha of course. "Alright that's quite enough now back to oh yes Mr. Logan you'll be partners with Dylan at table 10." Well at least his table is next to mine. Samantha with jealousy says " Ms. Parker Reynolds and Michaels is not in order. " " Miller and Michaels is therefor Dylan should be MY lab partner!" "Yes I am very aware of that Samantha but Dylan knows chemistry and I don't want to see Logan in my class next year so the partners will stay the same." "now Samantha you will be partners with Tommy." After partners were assigned Jules came up to me and said we are switching partners!! "Jules we can't switch they were assigned for us." James replied she just rolled her eyes and said we will be discussing this later and walked off. James turned to me and said see what I mean she's always mad over nothing. "Yeah well looks like we are stuck with eachother." I replied. I looked over at Logan and Dylan and wishing I could have been Logan's partner at least he'll make chemistry fun. *** bell rings**   Everyone is dressed out for P.E. and today we have to run around the track. Jules catches up to me and says " If you and MY boyfriend are going to be partners then there will be rules" "Such as?" " For starters you can't be alone at eachothers houses to do assignments you are to call me and ask me to come with and you can only work on projects in the library if I can't come. You got it?" " are you out of your mind?" " No I think I am being very reasonable." " Where do you get off telling me what to do, and another thing if you can't trust your boyfriend to be alone and work on a science project you need to rethink your priorities." I tried to run away but she yelled out "If you walk away without agreeing we are no longer friends!"  Now normally since it's Jules I would have made a better comment but since she's acting crazy and pissed me off I simply stuck out my middle finger and was on my way. She gasped in shock and a devious smile formed on my face. After P.E. was over Dylan  caught up to me in the hallway. " As much as I enjoyed Logan's jokes I wish it was you instead". He winked and walked away. What is he doing to me.. After school was over I went for a walk to the park.   ****Flashback to freshman year** "Hey!" I heard a familiar sound. "James!!" I wrapped my arms around him giving him a bear hug. He's been gone for 2 weeks him and his family went to California for vacation and he just got back. " HEYY!!" he said hugging me back. "When did you get back?" "Just this morning I wanted to surprise ya!" " Well you succeeded." We talked for hours mostly about his trip and what I've been doing which was mostly going to concerts in the park or the carnival. Then he held his hand in mine as the sun started to disappear. I look up at him and him at me this was going to be the moment I could feel it. He leaned in and kissed me... **** flashback over**   Dear Diary,   It happened the worst possible thing happened today. I'm sitting here on the grass where James and  I shared our first and last kiss because school started a week later and summer just stays summer and that's where Jules came into the picture and I was just a memory. I wish I could go back in time, but I can't that was then and this is now only Jules hates me but she'll eventually get over it. Well I better go.   ~Marnie​ A tear fell from my face and "why are you crying my dear?"
