Above & Below

finding something good without looking for it.

"In this case, it wasn't good. Well, he wasn't good or bad, he was something that I had never thought of. Someone that isn't normal, that isn't something you'd find by looking. He came to me. And now, he's all I need."

3. ~Chapter 2

         Usually, Mondays were the boring days and Tuesdays got the slightest bit' better. And so on, the days after got even better. It was different this week; Monday went by faster than ever and was the best day out of them all. Even though, I was filled with the most destructive coincidences, it still was the best day. Tuesday up until Friday, Nyx, the guy I had met, was absent. I had missed that face of his, that wonderful handsome face. I sensed something mysterious about him, though. 

         Anyways, it was Friday and he still wasn't at school. Yet, I came to school still hoping he'd be here. I walked out of school, and got in my car. I tried starting it but, it just wouldn't start for me. I tried a few more times, and just gave up. I sat there and sighed. All my bad luck seemed to just wear itself out this week. I decided to just wait awhile, so I started doing my homework. Trigonometry was such a hassle and I hated every bit' of it. At least, I could just go ahead and get it over with. 

I could help you. 

My neck snapped up to see a handsome face, smiling at me. I unlocked my door and let him in on the passenger side, "Oh hey, did you just offer to help me?" I was shocked by the sudden outburst, I mean he could've easily gotten karate chopped to the face, if he wasn't careful. You could say I'm jumpy or you could just say I'm very protective. It all depends on how you see it. 

"Uh yeah, I don't mind helping you. I'm actually pretty good at anything having to do with numbers and shapes." he smiled and took the pencil from the top of my book, and started working the problems out, "I'd guess you're the more English-type. You like Biology and Physics too, I'm guessing. A bit' of nerd." 

"What? Nope, you'd be wrong about that. I like English and maybe Geography but, Biology? You're way off!"

He grinned and snickered, "You just lied to yourself;" he looked up at me with a blank expression, "you're a sucker for Chemistry, you just won't own up to it because, well.. it's not attractive."

"W-What? What are you talking about? I'm not like that, I don't care if it's 'attractive'. It's a subject, not a look." I stared at him, angrily, "and who are you to say that? Why do you care anyways, this is none of your business! I don't even know you.."

"Then why the hell did you let a stranger like me in your car?" he let his hair hang down to cover his right eye. His fringe got in the way of his soul, his eyes were the key to his soul and now hair was in the way of it. He began to grin and opened the door, "Bye Bio Babe."

And with those three words, he was gone. I was provoked, agitated, and upset. I was being judged by someone I barely knew and I despised every second of it and him. I was beginning to hate this handsome face, but I decided not to hold it against him. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I needed to move past it. 

I started my car, and it actually worked. I closed the Trig book and took the paper, and sat it on top. Then I noticed something, he hadn't wrote anything but his cell phone number and these few words:

You'll forgive me. Trust me, Bea. 

Bea? Who's Bea? And how did he know I would forgive him? Maybe, now I won't. Smartalec. God he's so cocky. He knows he can get away with things, easily. 


"And then he said, Bye Bio Babe. I hate when people instantly judge me. He's such a piss-off." I had been complaining to Tatum ever since I had gotten home. 

"It sounds like to me, that he has the feels for you, hun." 

"What? No, it's obvious that he just likes messing around with me." 

"Whatever you say. Anyways, come meet me at The Loop and bring you're board this time! Be there in 30. Byeee."

Looks like she was excited. I pulled up my dark hair into a loose pony tail and combed my band down, that covered all of my forehead. Then, I put on my frayed cut off shorts, a crop top, and my black sneakers. I grabbed my board and put on my knee pads. 

"DAD, I'LL BE BACK LATE TONIGHT BYE! BYE CAELUM!" I ran out the door, and jumped on my skateboard. These were the times, that I felt free. No worries, no unhappiness. Freedom. 

Beep Beep Beep. 

I slowed down and answered my phone, "Hello?" 

"Hey Bea. What are you up to?"

I was confused, "I think you have the wrong num- wait, Nyx? How did you get my number??" 

"It's not my fault you wouldn't call me. I have my ways, Bea."

"Okay, firstly that's creepy. Secondly, why are you calling me Bea? And thirdly, I have to go."

"Because, I can. And okay, I understand, if you must go. Then go right ahead. Bye Bea."

That was odd of him. What am I saying? He's odd himself. 


I finally made it to The Loop. The Loop is a place for people to hang out or skateboard. Tatum and I try to go at least once a week, sometimes we even drag our friend Elisio. 

I saw Tatum standing beside a guy that I'm used to seeing here.

"Tatum!" I walked closer to her and she finally made eye contact with me. 

"Hey Valience! You remember Dane, right? The one who always does those confusing tricks that we always laugh about. Because, well we could never do them." she was obviously falling for this guy but, I couldn't blame her. He had piercing eyes, and a killer body. 

"Oh yeah. Sorry, I'm not really one to get to know people. That's all Tate." I laughed and stuck out my hand, "I'm Valience, nice to meet you Dane."

He shook my hand and grinned, "So you skate, huh?" 

"I dabble; I'm not in it for tricks. I like the feeling I get when I do it." 

"Whatever makes you happy." he said in a bored tone then, left with a wink at Tatum. 

I stared at the lights that hung on the ceiling, then turned back to Tatum who was completely mesmerized by Dane. I honestly don't know what she sees in that guy. 

"Tatum, why him?"

"Same for you, why Nyx? Out of all people, why the guy who mysteriously shows up in your gym class?" she grinned, "Yeah, see don't question me."

"Tate, I have no feelings for him. I don't even know him."

I heard a 'sure' under her breath, but ignored it. Feelings for a guy like him? I seriously have no taste for a guy who is irresponsible and infatuated with himself. It was disgusting to even think about liking him. I hadn't met a person who had confused me more than him.
