7. Chapter 7

The Monday after/the next day, I was still freaking out over Derick taking the pictures of me. I was paranoid, thinking that he was watching my every move. I'd made sure at least four times in just a few minutes that all of the doors and windows were locked in the morning. Finally, I left for school. My mom had drove me and I'd looked around everywhere constantly after she dropped me off.

That day, I didn't see Derick at all. I was so scared that he was going to be peering from around every corner as I walked down the halls. At lunch, I wouldn't go into the cafeteria because I didn't want to risk seeing his face and having a mental breakdown or something. 

Instead, I stayed in the photography classroom and sat looking through my photo album. I was admiring all of last years photos when I came across a section that I really didn't want to see right then. It was Derick and my two-year anniversary pictures. I then immediately shut the book and broke out into tears. But they weren't of sadness; I felt terrified. If someone would have told me then that he would have cheated on me with my best friend, get dumped by me, and then start stalking me, I know for a fact that I would call them crazy and ignored them. Except it happened. I continued to freak out over thinking about Derick. I swear that he was probably watching me now because, well, he was my stalker.

Just then, I saw a shadow outside of the windows that view the school hallways and then a flash. I suddenly could not move. The blinds were drawn, and so I couldn't see who it was. Then the classroom door slowly creaked open. Finally, I saw who it was. I breathed a sigh of relief. It was only my photography teacher, Mr. Failing. 

"Hey, Winter," he began. "Lunch will be over in a few, but I was wondering if you would help me take yearbook pictures around the school?"

That must've been what the flash outside the windows were, I thought.

"Yeah, sure! I'd be happy to help."

Mr. Failing smiled at me. "Okay, great. Grab your camera and we'll head out."

Once we were done for now, I set down my camera in my cubby. 

"Mr. Fisher?", I asked.


"I have a friend, Brittney, who is going to be coming to our school. She will be in this class with me, and I was wondering if you had any extra cameras."

He thought for a minute and then replied, "I think that we could work something out."

"Okay, thanks!"

With that, I left and went to my next hour. I was really excited for Brittney to come here, but I wondered if I was going to be able to tell her about Derick. I hoped so, because it was getting hard to deal with myself at the time.
