7. Kiss Kiss Kiss
A/N: In case you're wondering,Sean and Jack are the same person. So,yeah.
"That was fun!" Emily tells me as she jumps around beside me as we walk to the cafeteria. "Yeah,I guess." I say. She stops jumping and walks correctly,looking at me. I keep my eyes locked on the hallway in front of me. Every once and a while,a person would pass us. "Sean,what's wrong? You've been....sad,I guess,all day." She asks. I shrug. "Not a good day,I guess." We enter the lunchroom. She stops and grabs my wrist. "Don't play these games with me,Sean,I know something's wrong. And I won't stop until you tell me." She says,looking me in the eye. "Jack's got a girlfriend." Matthias sings a song he walks past us. I look around the room,as does Emily,and notice everyone else has gotten quiet,and are staring at us. She let's go of my hand and looks down. She flattens out the skirt of her sundress,a teal one,with a white bow around her waist. Someone from the back of the room cups their hands around their mouth. "You gonna ask her to the homecoming dance or what,Jack?" He yells. Emily freezes. "Dance?" Her voice soft. "I-I......"I stutter. "Sean. There's a dance?" She asks,still quiet,and looking down. "Yes." I tell her,quietly and quickly. She looks up at me. Her eyes search my face. A slow chant begins to be shouted throughout the cafeteria. "Kiss. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss." Over and over. With the sound of fists banging against the tables. I look over at where Dan,Phil,Natasha,and their friends sit. Then,I look over at Matthias's table. Then to mine. And to every other table,refusing to look at the girl standing in front of me. "Why aren't you kissing already?" Someone shouts. I look back at Felix and Mark. Felix shoots me a thumbs up and Mark nods. Bob smiles and Wade is just smiling. The chant has stopped. "You don't like me,do you?" Emily asks,which makes me face her. "I-i.....it's just...." I sigh. "I understand." She says,and walks out of the lunchroom. "Good going!" "What an idiot." I sit down at the table. "Oh,Jack." Mark groans.
I see Emily at her locker. She takes out her backpack and laptop. She closes her locker door and begins walking. I open my locker and take out my backpack,laptop,and folder. I put my laptop and folder in my backpack and close my door. I look to see where Emily is. She's talking to Chris Collins. Then he walks the opposite way that she begins walking. Felix walks up to me,his bag hanging over his shoulder. "Tough luck." He says and we begin walking down to where the buses are gathered. I sigh.
