I'm admiring how good this oatmeal is. I don't think I remember when the school's breakfast was this good. My oatmeal has actual slices of strawberry and banana in here and the combination is absolutely amazing.
Emma is sitting right in front of me, waiting to finish my breakfast and looks as if she's bored out of her mind. Sorry but I like to take my sweet time and eat.
"You eat like a bird." Emma complained.
I just ignore her and eat another slice of strawberry. I keep forgetting that strawberries have a sour taste to them and now I have chills down my spine.
I get up from my seat to throw my plate of food away and I walk out the door with Emma right by me. I didn't know how much time I had left until the bell so I hurry to my locker and as soon as I open it, it rings. Just my luck.
I snatch the notebook that Emma gave me out of my locker, heading to class while Emma was pulling my arm.
As soon as we get in there, the teacher is already at her desk and she's looking at us like she was waiting for us to begin the class. Ms. Woods hands us a worksheet to work on and we can't even work with partners. This stupid lady always gives us these worksheets and she never taught a lesson this year. These papers aren't going to teach us jack!
I begin to work on this worksheet and it's asking me something about the five stages of cell division in mitosis. I know one of them is Anaphase but I have no idea what the other four are. Maybe Emma knows, I sure hope so. I look at Emma and she didn't even write anything, she draws some kind of S symbol or something. It's cool looking, but I have never seen that before.
"I want a date for Jordan's party." she blurted out.
My eyes widen a little and I clear my throat. I thought she didn't want to be with anyone right now or to even have a friendly 'date' with a guy. I know I wouldn't if I was her, finding out that my boyfriend is a crazy lunatic. That would probably make me stay away from guys for good.
"Like I don't to feel alone with Jorlope, Violet and Alex, and You and Roy."
"Me and Roy aren't going as a couple." I air quoted couple. "But if you really want a date, I can ask Roy if he has any friends-" I got interrupted my Emma's squealing. She squealed so loud that everyone is looking at us even the teacher.
"Ms. Farewell and Ms. Fall please be quiet, there are students that are actually working." She gave us a sarcastic smile and I wanted to her for saying that I wasn't working. Maybe Emma wasn't but I was.
"Yes ma'am." Me and Emma said at the same time.
I guess I have to find Emma a date. Sorta.
I wait in line for lunch while Emma is talking to the football players like usual. She's probably seeing who can be her date this Saturday. There was something about Emma that made guys like her and she could talk to them with no problem. I notice that Emma laughs and flutter her eyelashes a lot when she's around them. Does it work? It has to. It must be the reason she gets guy's attention.
I grab my plate and felt someone's breath on me, it's really uncomfortable, but I don't want to be mean if it's someone I don't know. I take a slight glance from the corner of my eye, and Jordan is behind me and he's smiling which made me smile.
I take my plate as I'm walking and we're just having some lasagna which looks mostly burnt. I saw Penelope and Violet at my table already, they don't usually sit here just me and Emma. Emma cuts right in front of me to get to the table quicker, that girl is so impatient. The world's most impatient girl award goes to Emma Marie Farewell.
"Hey." I greeted everyone at the table.
When I sit down, Penelope and Violet are smirking while I shoot them a confused look.
"Jordan tells me that y'all are starting to hanging out," Penelope smirked, taking a sip from her milk.
My face gets red out of embarrassment. I hope Penelope isn't mad about it. It's not like we kissed or anything, we didn't even hug.
"You better watch out," Violet teased.
Penelope laughs. Thank you so much for laughing instead of kicking my ass.
My face turns even brighter red and Emma is just eating her lunch.
"Yeah because Penelope can kick ass." Emma said with a mouthful of food.
"Guys come on I think it's nice that Mary has a guy friend that isn't a crush," Penelope chuckled.
I can hear Emma smacking her food which is very disgusting.
"Yeah we're just friends," I added.
"Plus I know you like a guy name Roy." Penelope said, looking straight at Emma.
Emma's head pops up and we all look at her for a response.
"What?" Emma wondered, swallowing her food.
"Why did you tell them?" I snapped.
Violet has her chin in her palm.
"Well I got a little excited and it just came out." she said, sounding like a child while eating her last piece of lasagna. "And you know that he likes you so don't deny it."
Penelope is amused by this.
"Who's Roy?" Violet blurts out. I still don't know why she doesn't catch on to this, we tell her juicy information and she doesn't listen. They've seen Roy at my house before when they spent the night.
"Mary's future husband." Emma sang.
I hit Emma in the arm and she whines. It's kinda annoying when she does that. It reminds me of my cousin, Tracy. Ugh, I can't stand that little devil.
We all got up to dump our plates and start to walk to the gym. Maybe I can bring them to where Jordan and I sit. I hope Jordan doesn't get mad if I did which I don't see why he would. I would be bringing his girlfriend along.
"I have somewhere else we can go," I said, starting to speed walk towards the end of the hallway while the others try to catch up with me.
I get to the back of the school and Violet and Emma are losing their breath already, they weren't even running they were sorta jogging, more like speed walking. Emma has both of her hands on her knees, trying to catch her breath dramatically. Jordan sees us and waves.
I grab Emma's sweater sleeve and drag her to where we're going to sit. When we got over there, Penelope and Jordan started to cuddle with one another.
That's too cute.
"The answer is B," Emma argued. The answer is C for sure. We're in Health, the last hour of the day, and she thinks that you get Vitamin C from the sun and it's really Vitamin D.
"Vitamin C is what you get from orange juice," I explained. I don't see how you get confused with something that the sun gives you and something that you drink for breakfast gives you.
"I'll ask the teacher," Emma called, raising her hand.
The teacher comes over here with a grin.
"Is the vitamin you get from the sun, Vitamin C or D?" Emma asked, pointing to the question with her pencil.
I'm sitting here smiling because I know she's going to be wrong.
Emma's jaw drops as soon as she hears that. I had my hand over my mouth to try to keep myself from laughing too hard at Emma's face. Is it me or is it amazing to prove people wrong?
Mrs. Clark leaves the table, Emma starts pouting and crossing her arms while I pat her hand to comfort her.
Emma circles the answer on her paper and I turn it in with Mrs. Clark that has an armful of other students' work.
When I sit back down, Emma is on her phone and it's out in the open for everyone to see. Is she crazy? She must really want to get caught and get sent home. Don't blame her.
"Emma, put your phone away," I whispered.
She finishes her text before putting it back in her backpack.
"She doesn't care." Emma whispered. All this time I could've been playing on my phone and get away with it.
I pull out my phone from my backpack and sent a text message to Roy. I hope he's able to text in his class. Emma is smirking at me while she types something into her phone and then my phone vibrates. It's text from her. She could've said it to me. I'm like right next to her.
Emma: Are you texting Roy?;)
Me: Yes now leave me alone :)
I almost jumped out of my seat when my phone vibrates and the bell rings at the same. I went to the front of the school and pulled out my phone. It's just my mom and she's saying that she can't pick me up today because she's working late. Well that sucks, who can bring me home? Jordan can but I don't like asking for rides. Speaking of the him, here comes Jordan.
"My mom said she couldn't pick me up so I was wondering if you could give me a ride?" I hesitated to ask. I couldn't help but stare at the bit of freckles he has on his face. I honestly think that freckles are the cutest thing ever and plus glasses.
"Yeah, sure." he nodded.
I just stood there adoring his pearly white smile and then he broke the silence by ruffling his car keys in his pocket. Well that was weird and awkward.
Jordan and I go out to the car and he holds the car door for me. I smile and get in the car, he closes the door and goes to the driver's seat. My ring tone Crazy Train goes off and it fills out the whole car. I thought I put it on silent. Thank god, Jordan just ignored it, that would've been really embarrassing. I pull out my phone from my backpack and it's a text from Roy.
Roy: Hey, sorry I was in class:)
Me: It's okay. What are you doing?
I smile as I write my text, and Jordan is glaring at me like I'm crazy. I know I probably look like an idiot smiling so big at my phone. Jordan turns the radio down a bit and I feel like he's going to start to hammer me with questions.
"Why are you smiling so big for?" he questioned, looking at me then the road.
"A friend," I innocently smiled.
I push my hair behind my ear, looking at my feet. The thought of Roy makes me all giddy and happy for some reason. It's not only because I like him but because he's just a person that you have a good vibe from.
"I'll take a guess and say Roy."
My face turns and my heart starts racing. How did he know that? Because I went to his house one time, wow big deal.
"How do you know?" I nervously chuckled.
I start to look out the window to see the palm trees and nice mansion as we drive by.
"Because he never stops talking about you,"
My face gets redder when he saids that and I look at him, he seems pretty serious. Is he joking? He better not be because this isn't something to joke about with me.
"Don't tell him I told you that." he said, putting his finger over his lip. I can't believe that Roy actually talks about me and Jordan told me.
Jordan arrives at my house, I thank him and went into the house as fast as I could. It's really cold today. Brr. When I get inside, the heater hits my face which makes me not want to move from this very spot.
I go into the kitchen and I see a plastic container on the counter. I go to see what it is and it's Hello Kitty sugar cookies! My mom left me a note saying Don't eat it all in one day:) Love, Mom. I'm not going to promise her anything.
I stand here and admire the cookies before I devour them into my mouth. The cookies have the Hello Kitty face iced on here and it has the white and pink sprinkles. I can't take this anymore, I have to have one.
I grab a cookie out the container and take a bite into the cookie. It's like heaven in my mouth, it's so soft and the icing so sweet tasting. I need another one.
After eating all the cookies from the container, I lay on the couch to watch some television. I found an episode of Grey's Anatomy and started to watch it.
