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.

6. Chapter 5

"Where were you?" Sky asked when I walked through the door. 

I smiled sheepishly at her and Jess, who was sitting on my bed. 

"I was jogging with Matt." I told them quietly. 

"Matt huh?" Jess teased. 

I plopped down beside her and rolled my eyes, "He's just a friend, and he offered to coach me because I'm in terrible shape." 

"Matt is one of the hottest guys in the school, you lucky butt." Sky commented. 

"You can have him, I see him as nothing more than a friend." I mumbled, getting embarrassed by their teasing.

"Sounds like a plan, and Jess can have Cody." Sky suggested, winking at Jess who was turning beat read.

"Does Jess have a crush?" I asked, gasping dramatically. 

"Shut up." She mumbled, shoving me lightly. 

I laughed at her flustered state and tried to picture her and Cody together. I could imagine him flirting and her blushing as red as her hair. Just that image alone was enough for me to ship it completely. 

"I totally ship Jody!" I exclaimed, and laughed with Sky at how much Jess blushed from my comment. 

"I'm leaving, you two suck!" Jess yelled dramatically, but I could see the ghost of a smile on her lips. 

"Got a hot study date with Cody?" Sky called as Jess was walking out the door. 

In reply she slammed the door. 

Once our laughter died down I looked at Sky seriously, "We have a mission. Get Jess and Cody together."

"Operation Jody!" Sky exclaimed, clapping her hands and bouncing on her bed excitedly. 

Operation Jody. I like the sound of that. 


"Hey Matt." I greeted the next day in math class. 

Yesterday after miss blush a lot left, Sky and I spent half the night planning how we could get Cody and Jess together. But we couldn't come up with anything too solid, which led to me speaking to Matt now. 

"Hey?" He said but it sounded like a cautious question. He seemed hesitant to even reply, thrown off by my unusually sweet tone towards him. 

"I need a favour." I said, deciding to tell him straight up instead of beating around the bush.

"Which is?" He asked, still as hesitant as the first time. 

"I really want Jess and Cody together and we need your help." I explained quickly.

He stared at me, eyes wide in shock, for at least a minute before he replied. 

"How am I suppose to help?" 

I groaned and face palmed, "You're his best friend! Just tell us how to get him to ask her out." 

"Cody doesn't ask girls out. He finds them at parties, bangs them, and never calls." Matt informed me. 

I glared down at my desk, there must be some way we can get them together. 

"What if we go out as a group?" I asked when the idea dawned on me. We can all go to one of our dorms and watch a movie, purposely putting them beside each other. 

"That doesn't mean he's gonna fall in love with her." Matt pointed out. 

I rolled my eyes, "But that'll at least get her on his radar." 

Matt nodded in agreement but didn't say anything further. 

"Can I get your number so I can text you about the plan?" I asked Matt after a few minutes of listening to the stupid math lesson. 

He nodded and he jotted down his number, handing it to me when he was done. 

I smiled and put the number into my phone, setting his contact name to Coach Matty

Once I was done I focused my attention on the lesson that Mr. O was teaching, which only lasted a few minutes because a thought struck me. 

"Where is Cody anyway?" I asked when I looked around and saw that he wasn't here. 

"Skipping to get lucky in one of the many janitor's closets. It's his goal to have sex in every one of them by the time the year ends." Matt answered. 

I scrunched my nose up in disgust and shook my head, making Matt chuckle lightly. 

And Jess has a crush on that guy? He's a pig! 

"Mrs. Steele, why the sour look?" The teacher suddenly asked, wiping the look off my face instantly.

In its place was a deep red blush that covered my face as I replied "Math disturbs me." 

The class laughed at my comment and even Mr. O had the ghost of a smile on his lips. 

After that the time passed quickly and before I knew it, I was walking to the cafeteria.

Once I had my food and was sitting down with my friends, I took out my phone to text Matt. 

To: Coach Matty

When should we all hang out? 

After I pressed send I put my phone away and dug into my cheeseburger. I just barely suppressed a moan at how good the thing was. So juicy and just flat out good. 

I was three bites into my burger when my phone vibrated in my pocket. 

From: Coach Matty 

Friday night good? 

I looked up from my phone and got the girl's attention. 

"Matt wants to know if we can hang out this Friday. Are you two in?" I asked.

Sky nodded immediately but Jess spoke up, "Will it be just Matt?" 

I bit the inside of my cheek to hold back at laugh. This girl is totally obsessed with Cody. 

"Don't worry Jess. Cody will be there." 

She shot me a glare but I could see the happiness in her eyes. 

To: Coach Matty

Friday's perfect :)

After I sent the text I sat my phone down on the table and continued eating. 

I was sipping on my apple juice when my phone vibrated loudly on the table, startling me and causing me to chock on my juice. 

I coughed as I opened the new text. 

From: Coach Matty 

Movie at my dorm - 8:00? 

I rolled my eyes at how formal his text was. 

To: Coach Matty

Sound like a plan!

Once that was sent I put my phone in my pocket and looked over at the 'popular' table. 

Drew was there, with Cody on one side and Matt on the other. They were all talking and laughing with everyone else, but Matt stopped to read the text. 

When he put his phone away he looked my way and I smiled at him, which he returned before focusing his attention on his friends again.
