The Opposite of Attraction

Ever since grade four Damon and Sophia have been sworn enemies.

Now it's senior year and they're still throwing insult after insult at each other. Everyone knows that when they're in the same room all hell will break loose. Even the teachers knew not to put them in the same class.

Well at least all but one. Mr. Willis being the crazy teacher he is purposely choose these two to be in the same class. Everyone said that them being in the same room for a year would be a disaster waiting to happen.

What they all didn't expect was for Damon and Sophia to grow closer than ever.

"No way! You are the luckiest girl in the world!" Candy screeched.

I had just told the table what happened in Environmental Awareness class. 

Most of them were shocked that daddy devil would put Damon and I together for a year, but some people, like Candy, were ecstatic. 

"Maybe he could even sit with us at lunch, so you guys could work on your project of course." Candy rambled on.

"That isn't possible, they're fighting for most popular, which means that they have to sit at different tables." Kyle interjected. 

"Well it's obvious that Damon will win, so why doesn't he sit at our table?" Candy reasoned in that sickly sweet voice of hers.

Even when she insulted you it sounded like a compliment. It was a gift for her and a curse for everyone else. 

"Actually, so far Soph is in the lead." Garrett, captain of the swimming team and my all time best friend defended me. 

I shot him a thankful smile in return. 

I would have stood up for myself and pointed out that I was winning, but I didn't want to sound rude and cocky. 

The reason I was popular was because I was so nice and friendly, if I was rude to someone, people would start to think I'm fake and I would end up loosing.

I can't let that happen and Garrett knows that. He's usually my voice for all these kinds of situations. 

"Whatever Garrett, you're just saying that because you're in love with her." Candy shot back. 

If there's one thing I knew about Candy, it's that she hates being wrong.

"I love her as a best friend, but I'm not in love with her." Garrett replied calmly.

This was a daily thing for us. Just because we were always hanging out, everyone just assumed we were together. 

What they didn't know is that Garrett is gay. I'm the only one that knows and he made me swear on my mother's grave that I wouldn't tell anyone. 

Candy just rolled her eyes and went back to picking at her uneaten salad while she gossiped with the other cheerleaders. 

"Why can't a guy and girl be best friends without everyone thinking that they're together?" I asked rhetorically

"I hear ya sista." Garrett replied. 

I rolled my eyes at his failed gangster talk and took a bite of my pizza slice. 

"Are we hanging out today after school?" Garrett asked. 

Swallowed my mouthful and replied "Yup, and we'll visit my sister, I haven't seen her in a couple days." 

Garrett nodded and went back to eating.

Suddenly that cafeteria went silent. 

I looked around to see why everyone stopped what they were doing. My eyes finally fell on what everyone else was already staring at.

There, at the entrance of the cafeteria stood someone I haven't seen since grade ten. 

There he stood, in all his glory, Dylan Russo.

He has definitely changed since grade ten. Gone were his braces and skinny limbs, and in their place was perfect white teeth, and muscles that any guy would kill for. they weren't to big and bulgy but they weren't non existing either, they were just perfect. 

He's just perfect. 

And it isn't help that I've had a crush on him since grade four. When he moved away in grade ten I was crushed, I cried myself to sleep the night I found out. 

But now he's back, and he has a decision to make, either sit with me, or Damon. 

It was a fifty fifty chance since Dylan was best friends with both Damon and I. 

That's another thing Damon and I use to argue about, who Dylan liked best. And whenever Dylan would hang out with Damon and not me, or vise-versa, we would become jealous and lash out at each other.

Everyone was shocked when Dylan finally made his choice at what table he would sit at, Instead of choosing between Damon and I, he just sat at a table filled with nerds and misfits. I had to respect him for that.

"Is that who I think it is?" Candy whispered to our table.

"Isn't that." Garrett started, and I finished off his sentence. 

"Dylan Russo." 

- - - - - -

"Mind if I sit here?" A voice asked from my right side. 

"Sure." I answered not even looking up to see who it is.

"Thanks Fia." The person said. 

There's only one person that calls me that. My head snapped up to look at the person now sitting beside me.

Dylan Russo. 

He was grinning goofily at me like he use to and I instantly felt comfortable. 

Since his looks have changed so much and he was suddenly super hot, I though things would be really awkward between us. 

But he's still the same Dylan, just hotter. 

"Long time no see huh?" Dylan said, breaking the silence that surrounded us. 

I let out a quiet laugh. "Its been way too long." I told him in a playful manner, but what I said is true. I've missed him more than I should have.

I've had a crush on him for so long, so when he left it sucked, but the worst part was he was also my best friend. 

No more than a year later Garrett transferred to my school and we instantly became friends, but it was Dylan that I shared all my memories with.

I've known Dylan since grade four, our parents were high school friends that reconnected that year. So obviously Dylan and I spent all our time together due to our parents. 

They use to think that Dylan and I would end up getting married one day.

"God I've missed you so much Fia." Dylan said sadly. I could see the pain and longing in his eyes.

Mine probably looked the same.

"C'mon Lan don't make me sad" I told him, my voice cracking. if we didn't change the topic I would surly cry. 

He rolled his eyes and grinned "You're still the same old emotional Sophia, I see." 

"And you're still the dorky Dylan." 

- - - - - - 

"Stay away from Dylan." was the first thing I heard from Damon since Environmental Awareness.

I slammed my locker shut with more force than necessary and worked around to face him. 

"Do you really think you have a say in who I talk to?" I asked, venom dripping from my tone. 

He winced slightly at my fury but didn't back down. 

"You're not going to steal my best friend away from me again." Damon shot back.

"Watch me." I spat as I stepped around him and out of the school. 

I texted Garrett to make sure he remembered we were hanging out today before driving home. 

I waited outside of my house for Garrett to get here so we could leave right away to visit my sister. 

Damon's cheep Porsche pulled up into the driveway and out stepped the devil himself. What I wasn't expecting was for Dylan to step out of the passengers side. 

I stood there staring at them in shock and disbelief while Damon smirked at me and Dylan waved. 

Garrett being the lifesaver he is, pulled into my driveway just as Damon was about to make one of his stupid comments. 

I quickly hopped into his car and instructed him to get away from here as quickly as possible.
