23. chapter 23

Michael's POV:

*Fast Forward to Friday, December 19th, 2014*

Today's finally the day. It's the 2014 Presidential Elections Speech. It's where the nominees for student council president say their speeches in front of the whole school.

After that, we have our winter break. We come back to school on January 5th, 2015.

On that day, we get to vote. When the voting's over, Mrs.Duncan and Mr.Baker will announce the winners.

I like how we have winter break before the voting. It'll give students a chance to think carefully about who to vote.

Honestly, do you really need to think who should win?

Tyra and Melanie should be everyone's number one choice!

"Tyra, is Nicky and Oscar coming here for your speech?" Ashton asked.

"Yes and I'm nervous," Tyra replied.

"No need to worry girl! You've done this for the last three years. You'll do fine." Liliana assured.

Everyone nodded in agreement.

"Also, the posters that we made for the elections brightened up the school! I heard everyone talking about how they're so cool to look at. It's poppin' girl!" Donivan exclaimed and snapped his fingers in a Z-formation.

Everyone laughed. Then, Dakota and Carolina approached us.

"Trust me, you're going to wish that you've never run for president," Dakota said to Tyra.

"Whatever," Tyra replied and rolled her eyes.

"Wait, why would someone elect two idiots to be Student Council President and Vice President?" Melanie asked.

Everyone laughed.

"Ugh, you guys are so mean." Carolina scoffed.

"Don't worry Car, they'll get their comeuppance," Dakota assured and they walked away.

I looked over to see Calum shudder in fear.

"Hey, do you think there's something wrong with Calum?" I asked Ashton.

"Actually, yeah I do. Something's off with him." He replied, looking at him.

"I'll talk to him about it later. It's obvious that there's something wrong, and he knows it." I said.

Ashton nodded.

"The Ballon d'Or is coming up, and I can't wait! I hope Lionel Messi wins it." Tyra mentioned.

"Same but it's pretty clear that Cristiano will win. He's been doing well so far in La Liga and the Champions League this season and after his heroics last season. I love Messi to the moon and back, but the Ballon d'Or has Cristiano written all over it." Eduardo explained.

"So? Is he the all top-goalscorer in La Liga history, surpassing Telmo Zarra? Is he the all-top goal scorer in the Champions League as we speak? And on top of that, did he take his national team to the World Cup final? No. Messi did all those things plus a lot more. Therefore, I don't think you have to worry about Cristiano winning, Eduardo." Melanie explained.

Everyone agreed with Melanie.

"It's 7:25, we should head to our lockers before we're late to homeroom," Liliana suggested.

"Yeah, we should head out," Jose said.

We got up and walked down the hallway to our lockers.

Donivan's POV:

I'm sitting with Tyra, Nah'cier, Jose, Eduardo, and Carolina in chem class, and we're almost done with our lab.

I can't wait for the Presidential Elections Speech. Tyra's speech will be good, and she's going last. That's awesome because you have to save the best for last.

Nah'cier finished wiping the last drop of water off the lab table. He threw away the paper towel and came back to us.

"Joey, we're finished," Eduardo announced.

Joey came to our table and checked our work.

"Great job! I'll take this and you guys can relax." Joey replied.

"YAY!" Carolina yelled.

Everyone stopped what they were doing and looked at her.

"Except for you, Carolina. You haven't done nothing this week." Joey stated.

"No that's not fair! I did do something." Carolina said.

"Carolina, they only thing you did was writing our names on the work," Nah'cier said.

Joey looked at Carolina.

"It's clear to me that you're lazy and prefer to have people to do your part. Now, go get a chemistry textbook and read the first chapter. Answer all the questions." Joey commands.

"Brutal. There are six sections in the first chapter." I told Carolina.

Carolina angrily sighed and grabbed a textbook.

She took her notebook and went to her seat in the front of the classroom.

"I have some tea to spill," Jose said.

"What is it?" Eduardo asked.

"I heard that Kaitlin's using the same speech she used last year for today," Jose replied.

"I heard that too! She said on Twitter that she made some 'big changes' on it." Tyra stated.

"The only thing she probably changed was the font size," I said.

We started laughing.

"Hey," Calum spoke, out of nowhere.

We weirdly looked at him.

"Uh hello," Tyra replied.

"Something bad will happen today, and it will not be pretty," Calum said and left.

"Huh?" Jose asked.

"What was he talking about?" I asked.

"I don't know. I wish I could ask him, but he'll probably say something weird." Eduardo replied.

The bell rang and everyone gave Mr.Graceffa their lab papers. We left his class.

Araceli's POV:

*Fast-Forward to History*

We're in History class and we just finished talking about the Townshend Acts.

"Now, before I let you guys talk, I just want to wish the best of luck to Tyra and Melanie for the Presidential Elections Speech," Ms.Thomas announced.

Everyone cheered.

"Thanks. I hope Melanie and I win." Tyra said.

"Don't worry Tyra, you got this," I replied.

"Not this year, Araceli, Carolina and I are going to win!" Dakota yells.

Everyone glared at Dakota.

"Knowing you and Carolina, you two would probably rig the voting. That's the only way you'll ever win." I scoffed.

"And that's fax no printer," Donivan said.

Everyone started laughing. That's when the bell rang as everyone left the classroom and made our way to lunch.

As I was walking to the cafeteria, Dakota purposely walks into me. I shoved her out the way.

"Pay attention to where you're going next time." I spat.

Dakota gives me the evilest look ever.

"Come on Araceli, she's just trying to test you," Anai said and glared at her.

I nodded approvingly and walked into the cafeteria, with Anai following me.

*After Lunch*

The squad and I walked into the classroom, laughing.

"Nah'cier, I can't believe you ate that nasty chicken, let alone throwing it at the lunch lady's face!" Tyra exclaimed and laughed.

"I thought they changed the chicken! Come on, I'm not the only one, right?" He asked.

"Uh, yeah." Everyone replied in unison then laughed.

Suddenly, the intercom turned on. Everyone got silent.

I hope Nah'cier doesn't get called to Mrs.Duncan's office for what he did.

"At this time, any senior who is running for Student Council President and Vice President may come down to the auditorium," Mr.Baker announced.

"Okay, thank god it wasn't Mrs.Duncan but GO TYRA AND MELANIE!" Nah'cier shouts.

Everyone else cheers as Tyra and Melanie left the classroom, waving goodbye to us.

"Wait, what about some applause for Dakota and I?" Carolina asked.

"Oh shut up and get to the auditorium," Jose replied.

Everyone laughed at Dakota and Carolina as they left. I looked over to see Calum, scared.

"Hey, do you know what's up with Calum?" I asked Ashton, walking up to him and Michael.

"Michael and I found out that he's not helping Dakota and Carolina anymore, but he did say that something bad is going to happen." He replied.

"Yeah Tyra told me about him not working with Dakota and Carolina, but that whole something bad part is weird," I said.

"What bad could happen? Dakota and Carolina are in our classes this year. That's something bad already." Michael said.

The three of us started laughing. Then, the intercom came back on.

"Seniors, at this time you may go to the auditorium," Mr.Baker announced.

Everyone got up and left the classroom. We walked into the auditorium.

"Yo!" We heard someone shout.

We looked up and saw Nicky and Oscar.

"Ayeeee!" Eduardo exclaimed and ran over to them.

Everyone else followed and took a seat in the middle section. I can't wait for this to start.

Let's go Tyra and Melanie!

Liliana's POV:

Mrs.Duncan walked on the stage. She taps the microphone a couple of times.

"Welcome class of 2015 to the 2014 Presidential Elections Speech. We have a lot of good candidates this year so let's get started. Starting us off is Kaitlin Nueva and Jessica Belle." Mrs.Duncan announced.

The cheer squad is the only ones clapping as both girls walked on to the stage. Jessica held a piece of paper in front of Kaitlin.

"Wow, her lazy ass couldn't hold it herself," I mumbled.

"Okay, so first things first, you will be required to say good morning to me. Don't say in a rude way. You're being disrespectful not only to me but to God. Our breakfast will require candy and only candy because it's good for you! Every morning, you will sing God Save the QueenMY way. It'll be about yours truly and how I'm pretty! During lunch time, this is my fave, you will properly greet my cheer squad and say to me that I'm beautiful. I know I'm beautiful. All the guys love me, right?" Kaitlin asked.

"Uh, no!" Jose yelled.

Everyone started laughing. Kaitlin rolled her eyes.

"Well, that's it and make sure you vote for Jessica and I because we're number one and we're the bomb diggity!" Kaitlin exclaims.

The cheer squad clapped loudly as Kaitlin and Jessica left the stage.

"So, we're just not going to notice that Kaitlin used the same exact speech from last year? But that's none of my business!" A boy shouted.

Everyone started laughing as Kaitlin glared at the audience.

"Students, very uneccesary! Kaitlin, Jessica excellent job. Next is Cristina Johnson and Lexie Southgate." Mrs.Duncan annouced.

Ashton's POV:

Cristina and Lexie came on the stage. Only three people clapped.

Cristina cleared her throat near the microphone. She then collected her papers together, wasting time on purpose.

"Hurry up, I want to hear Tyra's speech! I've been waiting all day!" Nah'cier yelled.

Everyone agreed and started yelling at Cristina. Mrs.Duncan shushed the crowd.

"Thank you Mrs.Duncan. Every morning you will sit with different people on the bleachers every morning, so no shade, no shade, but all cliques, squads etc. will be separated. Classes will be twenty minutes longer because education's important. We will feed tofu for lunch, and you'll have to eat it! Also, you guys need to be nice to Lexie and I. If you disrespect us, I'll send you to Mr.Baker's office and he'll have to deal with you. For the nerds, you will earn twice the amount of Calculus homework. That is all." Cristina said.

Everyone was dead silent. Not one student clapped.

"I am not eating tofu! This school needs better chicken. The lunch ladies claim that its the good kind when in reality it tastes like greasy cardboard!" Nah'cier yelled.

"#Nah'cierForPresident!" Someone yelled.

Everyone agreed and laughed.

"Students, stop it. Cristina and Lexie, great job. You girls may leave the stage." Mrs.Duncan said.

They nodded and left.

"Next, Penelope Warner and Lisset Daniels." Mrs.Duncan added.

Anai's POV:

Penelope and Lisset walked onto the stage. Only the AP students clapped for them. I rolled my eyes.

On God, she will mention her love for calculus.

"Good afternoon, my fellow Colonials. You'll start off your school morning in your usual way, by sitting with your dearest friends. But, I better hear you guys talk about math. It's important for the real world. Every class will be extended for another twenty-five minutes, so you'll be able to understand the lesson. You see, I love Calculus, and you will too because Mrs.Harrison will be passing out Calculus homework every single day. You guys can thank me later for that. For lunch, you guys will need to eat and study. No talking to your friends, unless they ask you a question and vice versa. Okay, that's it for now. Vote for Lisset and I. Calculus rules!" I'Yanna yelled.

The AP kids clapped proudly. A lot of us booed at Penelope. A guy threw a calculator at her.

It should've hit her head instead of the stage, so she can realize that calculus homework sucks. Penelope and Lisset gasped and ran off the stage.

Mrs.Duncan is pissed, but she's controlling it pretty well.

"Next is Dakota Lineker and Carolina Wells." She annouced.

Tyra's POV:

I'm in backstage, re-reading my speech. After Dakota and Carolina, I'm up next.

All the other speeches were terrible so I hope the audience get positive vibes from my speech. I worked really hard on it.

"Hey." I heard someone say.

I turned around to see Oscar.

"Hey Oscar, I'm glad you're here." I beamed and kissed him on the lips.

"Um wow Tyra, before your speech?" Someone asked.

Oscar and I laughed as Melanie walked up to us.

"I wanted to see you say your speech. I wish I can vote for you two, but I don't go to this school." He replied.

"Yeah, thanks a lot Mrs.Duncan." I pouted and rolled my eyes.

Oscar and Melanie laughed. Mrs.Duncan wouldn't let Oscar attend this school because she said that it'll be a distraction for me.

Dakota and Carolina are a distraction to me and the rest of the students!

She shouldn't have let them attend our school.

"Hey, wanna go see the squad before you two go on stage? We can hear Dakota's speech, even though it'll suck." Oscar stated.

Melanie and I started laughing.

"Sure, let's go," Melanie replied.

We followed Oscar and quietly walked to our seats. Melanie and I sat down next to Eduardo.

"What's good you guys? I hope you win." He whispered.

"Thanks," I whispered back.

"Yeah, thanks, Eddy," Melanie whispered.

"We apologize for the long wait. For my speech, I want to share something special with you guys. Trust me, it's worth your time." Dakota announced then smiled.

She nodded at Carolina. Carolina turned on the projector and opened a file called Secrets.

What secrets are they going to tell?

That's when the first slide shocked everyone. It's a screenshot of Donivan's Instagram post, with a picture of Jessica:


The lights shine on Donivan.

"I deleted that post a while ago!" He exclaimed.

"Oh Donivan, you had a crush on Jessica during sophomore year? You liked her so much, that half of your photos were of her. Awe, that's cute but too bad she doesn't like you." Dakota spoke into the microphone.

The lights still shine on Donivan as he ran out of the auditorium.

Next slide, there's a picture of Nah'cier selling a bottle of pills to someone. Everyone gasped.

"Nah'cier used to sell drugs. Well, he had to, since his family was on the verge of getting evicted." Dakota said.

The light showed Nah'cier shaking his head in disbelief. He gets up and leaves.

"This is fucked up. I can't believe they're doing this." Nicky fumed.

"Wow, so this is their way of trying to get votes," Melanie said and rolled her eyes.

Carolina clicked the next slide.

It's a FaceTime photo of Jose and Cristina:


"No, no, no! This can't be happening!" Jose yelled.

The light shines on Jose.

"Jose and Cristina use to be a thing. Unfortunately, Jose didn't make it public because he was too scared. Oh and, if don't think that this picture isn't real, look closely at Cristina's hair. During the time she was with Jose, she had bangs and always wore her hair in a bun." Dakota explained.

Jose angrily got up and left.

"Dakota, stop right this instant!" Mrs.Duncan yelled, walking onto the stage.

"No Mrs.Duncan, I'm using my speech time wisely. I want students to hear what I have to say. You let all the other nominees say their speech, why can't I?" She asked then smiled.

Carolina smiled as well and clicked on the arrow button. I all could see is a piece of paper, with some writing on it.

I can tell it's Eduardo's handwriting. Dakota read it out loud.

"If you guys don't understand this poem, Eduardo had a tough battle with depression because of Kaitlin, yes the Kaitlin Nueva, rejected him." She explained and smiles.

Everyone gasped. The light showed Eduardo tearing up a bit.

"Eduardo," I said.

He held up his hand and simply left.

*10 Minutes Later*

Wow, this is crazy. This is what I found out about my friends:

Lorena: She once did cocaine.

Liliana: She's a smart girl. The school offered her to be in AP classes but she rejected them many times because she wanted to be in classes with her friends. She even failed the AP test on purpose to stay in her regular classes.

Anai: Before she and Donivan got together, she was seeing a thirty-year-old guy from Liverpool.

Araceli: She had an obsession with alcohol. It got so bad that her parents put her in a rehab center.

"Now, this one is quite surprising. I had to read this three times. Let me read you this confession via Tumblr. I'm sure you can guess this person." Dakota said.

Carolina clicks on the link. The confession loads up. Dakota looks down and began to read it.

I realized that this confession entry is Melanie's. Although she made up a fake name for Cristiano, many knew it was him. It's about how she loved Cristiano, even though he kidnapped her and hurt her.

I turned around to look at Melanie, who is crying. The light is shown on her as she ran.

I was about to get up but Luke stopped me.

"Don't worry Tyra I got her. You have to stand up against Dakota." He said.

I nodded and Luke ran after Melanie.

"Now, this last one is my favorite. I was so shocked by this. Let's watch a video. Guess whose voice this is." Dakota said.

Carolina clicked the link. A video started playing.

That's when I saw me, on the stage rapping. My eyes widened and I gasped. This is a video of me at a club I always go to.

I would rap about my past, especially about Thiago and David. Recently, I add James in it.

Everyone wanted me to do more, so I continued doing that. It was a normal thing for me to do.

They loved it, so why not?

I looked at the video. I didn't feel upset or angry. Maybe it's good that everyone knows.

The video finished. Dakota showed more videos and even a couple of photos, including this one:


I remember that picture. That was my first day performing at that club.

"So Dakota? Tyra was just rapping! Tyra, that was awesome." Michael said, looking at me.

The light shined on Michael and I. I smiled a bit.

"Thanks, Mikey, and Dakota, this a pretty fucked up thing to do! What good is that going to do for everyone!" I exclaimed.

Everyone agreed with me and cheered my name.

"Wow you two sound like idiots, so let me educate you guys. Michael, I think the clever bus must've forgotten to pick you up this morning. Tyra is rapping about her past. Her first boyfriend, Thiago, played with her feelings. That's why they broke up! We knew that David didn't love her, so, he kidnapped her TWICE and treated her like shit. Oh and I almost forgot about James, the married man who has a kid that Tyra had a thing with! The good news is that Tyra's boyfriend Oscar and her older brother Nicky are here." Dakota declared.

The shines on Oscar, Nicky, and I. Everyone turns and stares at us.

"Nicky, Oscar do you two understand how much of a whore Tyra is? Thiago, David, James, the list goes on. For the love of god give her and the squad some help. Folks, they're not your average friendship goals and what not. They're frauds. Vote for someone like Carolina and me, not Tyra Ramirez, who can't control what guy she sleeps with and not Melanie Fuentes, who has feelings for her kidnapper." Dakota said, ending her sentence with a grin.

The auditorium was silent.

Some people looked at me, surprised. Others were just shaking their head.

I got up and ran out of the auditorium, in tears. Nicky and Oscar running after me, calling my name.

I ran into the girls' bathroom and went into the last stall. I closed the door and locked it. I leaned against the stall and cried.

Is this what it feels like to be exposed?
