It's the last quarter of the school year. April 4th. Track sign up sheets have already been posted all around the school. I looked at the sign up sheet in the cafeteria. Low and behold, the third name on the list is Ryder Paisley. Below his there is a lot of pink ink. The Populars. Of course, weather they're athletic or not, they want to be with the popular boys. I stared at the name Cass Kholeson.
Cass is the most popular girl in school. She and Ryder used to date until Ryder broke up with her. Nobody ever knew why they broke up though. As soon as they were split, I was happy. Cass is mean to everyone and thinks she's on top of the world. She's even mean to Lainey Anderson, probably the sweetest girl in school. Lainey isn't the best when it comes to education, but she's too sweet too dislike.
One time I was just walking down the hall when I saw Cass taunting Lainey. Cass was holding out a dollar to Lainey saying, "All you have to do is tell me what 12 plus 12 is."
"I told you, it's 26." Lainey called back.
"Wrong! Keep guessing or no dollar for you!" Cass taunted.
"I don't kno..." I cut Lainey off and snatched the bill out of Cass' hand.
"Really Cass? You have to pick on someone who struggles academically just to make yourself feel better? That's pretty low." I said being kind of snotty. Then I turned to Lainey. "What's your favorite type of Gatorade?" I asked with a plan in mind.
"The blue kind." Lainey replied with a grin on her face.
"Okay Lainey, you see that machine over there? Take this dollar, put it in the machine, and go punch in B13. Then take your Gatorade out of the bottom." I explained.
"Thanks Bidgett!" Lainey cheered gleefully, not quite getting my name right, but close enough.
"That was my dollar!" Cass hissed.
"Not anymore." I said with a smile as I walked away. I'm sure she could get anything she wanted from her rich parents, so that dollar didn't matter.
