The Music we Make

Cora Steele is a girl with talents anyone would die for.

Drew Bates is a guy with talents he would die to get rid of.

They're polar opposites and hate each other from the moment they first speak.

He wants all the attention and she attracts it.

But over time they learn that they're not so different after all, and maybe they could learn to like each other.

• • • • • •

Cora was a happy, talented girl until her parents died right before her first year of high school.
Now it's two years later and she has to go to a school for the talents that she hates to love.
She knows its the right thing to do but can she handle all the pain and pressure her talents bring?
Maybe with the help of a few friends and a special boy, she can survive the rest of high school, and maybe even learn to love it.

4. Chapter 3


The first day of classes. 

Also known as the day I'll walk around the school aimlessly and embarrass myself by walking into class fifteen minutes late. 

Sky showed me where all my classes were yesterday, but that didn't mean I remember how to get there. I can't explain how big this school really is. 

First period I have math, great way to start the day huh? And to make matters worse It's up on the forth floor, but that's as much as I know about it. I have no idea which hallways to go down, and how the room numbers work, so I'm just winging it. 

As I looked for room 487 I tugged on my shirt and sighed. I wanted to look nice today to make a good first impression on all the people I haven't already met, but I was regretting my outfit choice now. 

I was wearing a white tank top under an open maroon cardigan, black leggings, and my favourite maroon converse.

What I hadn't anticipated was for the school to be so cold today.

My thin cardigan did nothing to protect me from the icy air, and I was shivering lightly. 

I found out after Sky and I left this morning that the heat was broken and would, thankfully, be fixed later today. 

But for now I had to freeze my butt off.

485, 486, 487! 

It's about time I find my class. I was already six minutes late. 

Just as I was about to enter the class two bodies were pushed up beside me, one on either side. 

I looked up and saw Matt and Cody, Drew's little minions. 

I tried to push them away but they didn't even budge. I saw them smirk at each other over my head, and then they opened the door and dragged me into class. 

"Matt, Cody, what a pleasure it is that you've graced us with your presence." A tall male in his mid thirties, most certainly the teacher, said sarcastically. 

"Hey Mr. O!" Cody said excitedly. I don't think he caught on to the teacher's sarcasm. 

"And who's your friend?" Mr. O asked when he saw me. 

"This here is the new girl Cora. We were on our way to class when we saw her walking towards an exit. So we did the right thing and brought her here with us." Matt explained. 

"Hey! Thats no-" 

"We couldn't have little Cora here skipping her first day of classes, now could we?" Cody spoke up, cutting me off. 

"Well Cora, I don't know what your last school was like but here we don't encourage skipping. Usually you would get detention if you're caught, but since it's your first day I'll let it slide." Mr. O reprimanded.

I opened my mouth to tell my side of the story but Matt placed his hand on my mouth and dragged me to a seat at the back. Mr. O nodded in thanks and Cody nodded back. 

Those jerks! I bet Drew put them up to that. Now the teacher thinks I'm a skipper that mouths off to teachers. 

Matt gently pushed me down into a chair and sat on my right while Cody sat on my left. 

I rolled my eyes and crossed my arms, silently fuming. They had no right to lie like that. When I see Drew I'm going to kill him!

"A bird's gonna poop on your lip if you keep pouting like that." Cody suddenly said.

I have him a 'what the hell' look but didn't reply because knowing my luck the teacher would catch me talking, but not them. 

"Shut up Cody, I can see steam coming out of her ears." Matt joked. 

I let out a frustrated huff of air and sunk down in my seat a little. These two would be the death of me. 

After that the two of them bickered and made comments about me, which I ignored, but pretty soon I was gonna explode. 

"Did Drew put you two up to this?" I asked through my teeth. I had resorted to clenching my jaw shut a while ago in an attempt to control my anger. 

Cody put this hand on his chest and gasped in fake shock and Matt replied "Now why would you think that?" 

That was all the confirmation I needed to know that Drew definitely put these two up to this. 

"I'm gonna kill him." I whispered to myself. 

"Would you like to speak up so the class could hear you Cora?" Mr. O asked.

"No sir." I answered, sinking down lower in my desk. 

I heard the two baboons beside me snicker, and I've never wanted to hit a human as much as I wanted to hit them. 

Thankfully class ended soon after that, and I all but sprinted out of the room. 

I swear to god if those two are in any more of my classes, I'm gonna lose it!

"What class do you have next babe." Cody asked, slinging his arm around my shoulder as him and Matt caught up to me in the hallway. 

I shrugged his arm off and replied "None of your business, and don't call me babe." 

Matt chuckled and Cody scoffed. I guess he's not used to rejection. 

"We can help you find your next class." Matt offered. 

Now it was my turn to scoff, "Like I'm gonna believe that. For all I know you'll just make me late and then tell the teacher I'm skipping again." 

Besides, I have Art now and I actually remember how to get there. 

"Fine. Be like that." Cody said, sour from the little rejection I gave him, and pulled Matt away. 

I smiled at their retreating backs. Never in my life have I been so happy to be ditched. 

I climbed up one flight of stairs and looked for room 531 once I was on the fifth floor. 

This time I got to class before the bell rang.

I took a seat at the back of the class and took out my notebook and pencil, preparing myself for all the questions I'm about to be asked. 

When the bell rang at the end of class I was so surprised, I jumped from the loud sound. It felt like I walked in five minutes ago, not an hour and twenty minutes ago. I actually enjoyed class, Only three people asked me about drawing with my eyes closed, which was some kind of miracle, and for the rest of class I was left alone.

I quickly packed my stuff into my backpack and rushed downstairs. 

Five flights later I was finally on the last floor and heading in the direction of the cafeteria. 

This stupid rich school has everything except elevators. 

I stopped once I stepped into the cafeteria, scanning the crowd of people for Becca and Jess. 

I finally saw them waving like lunatics in the middle of the lunch line, and quickly walked up to them. 

"Hey, how was your first two classes?" Jess asked when I got to them. 

I shrugged, "They were alright. Nothing special, just class." 

They both rolled their eyes at my boring answer. 

"Next!" The lunch lady called. 

Jess and Sky both got soup and a sandwich, and I ended up getting two slices of pizza and chocolate milk. 

Once we all had our food we walked to a table and sat down, immediately beginning to inhale our food like the pigs we are. 

"You might want slow down and taste your food." A voice said from behind me. 

I tensed when I realized who the voice belonged to, and the girls looked up and blushed like crazy. 

"Matt." was all I said. 

He chuckled and sat down on one side of me while Cody sat on the other, just like in math. 

"Where's your leader?" I asked sarcastically, taking another big bite out of my pizza. 

"Over there at the popular table." Cody replied, putting emphasis of the word popular, and pointing at a table near ours. 

I rolled my eyes and took another bite of pizza and I studied the 'popular' table. 

Drew was there, surrounded by guys wearing varsity jackets, and girls wearing too much make up and too little clothes. 

Just as I was about to look away Drew's eyes met mine and he smirked, probably seeing the annoyed look on my face. 

But then a brilliant plan came to my mind and I smirked back, causing his to drop and his eyes to leave mine. 

"Done ogling our friend?" Matt asked quietly, his face close to mine. 

"Definitely, I'd rather look at you." I replied flirtatiously, holding back a smirk when I saw his half shocked, half flustered expression. 

"W-what?" He asked and cursed under his breath, probably because he stuttered. 

It was pretty obvious that I caught him off guard, and that's all I needed to play him like a fiddle. 

"You're just so sexy, especially your hair." I told him, running the hand I wasn't eating pizza with, through his hair.

I heard him take a sharp intake of breath, and scooted my chair closer to him.

And for the finale I brought my mouth up to his ear and whispered "It kind of turns me on." 

Then I pulled away and almost laughed at his shocked, blushing face. 

I looked into his eyes and saw an internal debate going on. If only I could read minds, I'd love to read his right now. 

"Lets go dude." Cody said, breaking the silence at our table. 

When Matt didn't reply Cody stood up and dragged him to Drew's table. 

It took everything in me not to burst out laughing, because if I did, they'd realize that I was just doing that to get them away. 

Cora - 1, Drew - 1.

When I trained my attention back on Sky and Jess, their mouths were hanging opened in shock. 

I shrugged, "What? I needed to get them away somehow. They were annoying me." 

"You could have asked them to leave." Jess replied, looking at me like I just grew another head. 

"They've been bugging me all day, Drew put them up to it. That's the only way they'd leave me alone." I explained, and they nodded in understanding. 

After that they went back to eating and I watched as Drew stormed off after Cody explained what happened. 

Well Drew Bates, that's what happens when you mess with Cora Steele.
