Fairly Local

"The world around us is burning, but we're so cold. It's the few, the proud, and the emotional."
A lot of people may think that after my brother graduated high school, all of the issues would be resolved. Ha, like I wish. This is still high school. There have been rumors speculating around now about my class, and most of them are about me. I've cheated on my boyfriend with the most popular guy in our grade, I've had sex with a girl, I've done drugs, I give blowjobs for free, et cetera. Well none of that is true. I've never had sex with a girl. I drink but I don't do drugs. And the only person I give blowjobs to is Ian.
Wait I didn't confirm that the cheating on Ian one isn't true? Well, that's a long story...

4. chapter three

After dinner, Ashton and I decided to go to our favorite hangout spot back when we actually liked each other.

The dog park.

When we were little we would constantly ask our parents for a dog. But of course there was a situation we wouldn't learn about until Ashton was seven and I was five that was called mom is allergic to things with fur. So that meant no pets.

I did have a beta fish named Tommy Grace Taylor Pickles Edison, or Tommy for short. He died back in early 2014. Rest In Peace Tommy.

We sat on a bench and looked at the people who were walking their dogs at this time of the evening.

"How are things at school?" Ashton finally asks me, and I know what he's talking about.

"Still the same old. People questioning who I am and such." I answer.

"Anything new?"

"Well, people think that I slept with Adam Hammerson, but why would I since first it was Autumn who started it and she's dating him and second everyone knows that I'm loyal to Ian." The second one was a lie obviously but still. After that evening in September I stayed loyal to Ian. That's the truth.

"Okay, let's review. There was you gave blowjobs for free, you had sex with a girl, and now you had sex with the most popular guy in your grade? What the fuck is up with your grade?!" Ashton looks at me. "It's worst than my class!"

I chuckle. He wasn't kidding. While people did spread rumors about people in Ashton's time in high school, they weren't as harsh as the rumors that are spreading now.

"Times are changing, my dear older brother." I shrug. He still doesn't know I fucked his roommate, but it's best that it stays like that. "Alright enough about me. What about you? I get small texts here and there but like last year I never really got the big scoop unless I see you during your breaks."

"Well, school, basketball, school, basketball, that's it." I answer with a shrug.

"Your life is really uneventful isn't it?" Ash chuckles.

"Well I mean Archie is in my French class this year I don't think I told you that."

"Wait, is this the same Archie from eighth grade?" He asks sounding excited.

You see, before Ian I had a crush on this guy from eighth grade into freshman year who's name was Archibald Everhard, or Archie. Yes he was named after Archie Andrews from the Archie comics he told me his dad used to love those growing up. We were in band class from fifth grade until eighth grade (oh my god yes I was in band in the past I played the flute but stopped band after sports became the epitome of my life) and eighth grade was the year I realized he was quite cute. Then freshman year he got hot, and then sophomore year I had a crush on him up until I started dating Ian.

He is not a redhead like Archie Andrews. He has black hair.

"Yes the same Archie." I answer. "And I got to go see Audrey and Rachel at some of their marching band competitions this year. Marching band comps are very interesting..."

"How so?"

"Like everyone is quiet during the performance, and lots of other things. But holy crap marching band is an interesting activity."

Ash laughs. "Well why didn't you do it?"

"I like basketball more than playing the flute." I answer with a chuckle.

"Point." Ashton states getting up off the bench. "We should probably head back home."

I agree and we both walk home.

(This was a filler but I got something in yay!)
