[XD Yes, I'm a girl ]
Mara hesitated at the huge entrance at the front of the school. Did she have to go to school today..? Sighing, she finally pushed the door open and walked inside. She hated being the new kid.
Avexis was swinging on his chair, large headphones on his head and clearly ignoring the teacher, he did not notice at first that a new girl had come to his class, but when he did he paused the music so he could hear without takng his headphones off and stopped swining on his chair
Of course I just have to be late, Mara thought bitterly, blushing in embarrassment. She gave a little apologetic bow to the teacher and quickly found a seat by a boy listening to music. Hopefully it wouldn't be like her old school, where the teacher made her stand in front of the class and introduce herself. How humiliating.
Avexis spoke softly "teacher looks pissed, and for once its not me" and he was right, the teacher was glairing at the new girl, his face growing re and said "as you see we have a new student, does anybody know her name?" he said mockingly
avexis spoke without turning his head"teach is pis.sed and for once its not me" he was right, the teacher was glariing at the new girl, his face growing red with rage and some of his grey hairs flipping into a curl "as you see we have a new student, does anybody know her name" the teacher said mockingly
avexis backchatted him as if it where normal "gentleman introduce there name first" his voice was calm and non shalant, his eyes where closed as if he where about to go sleep
Mara blushed at first, but then went a bit pale. Did this boy seriously want to p.iss the teacher off even more? She bit her lip. "Well... he does have a point, Sir," she said, gesturing to the boy beside her. "Gentlemen usually do introduce themselves first... And anyway, it's not like my name really matters very much, does it?" It was obvious she was nervous. "It's not like I'm the queen or anything important."
the old man barked at thee girl, afraid to respond to avexis "we dont know if your the queen of france, jsut give us a god damn name" he glared at avexis "and dont thing you are sitting next to him, he is a bad influence" avexis scoffed and laughed "she will learn more from me than she will from you old man, and you know that" again the teacher did not respond, like he was afraid.
without permission avexis went into mara's bag and pulled out her phone, checking her texts "according to this text of some lass called josaphine, this girl standing next to me is called mara" he smiled at her sliding the phone back into her bag, doing the work for her and inclining his head for her to sit back down
the old man barked at her "you could be the queen of france for all we knew" he did not respond to Avexis' insults but turned to glare at him "and do not think you are sitting with him!"
avexis remarked saying "she will learn more from me than she will you" the teacher still made no remark back to avexis as if he where afraid
without permission avexis slid his hand into mara's bag and took her phone out "according to this text of some girl in france, the girl standing next to me is called mara" he put the phone back into her bag as if nothing had happened, and inclined his head for her to sit back down
Mara stared at the boy in shock. Did he seriously just check her phone? Without even asking? Who did he think he was! But then again, he was standing up for her... She couldn't bring herself to be mad at him as she stared down at her desk to avoid the teacher's gaze. "Y-yes, Mara. Not the queen of France by any means..." she murmured quietly. Eventually she met the teacher's gaze. "So what's your name, then?"
the teacher didnt reply, he grunted then turned back to the board writing down the lesson and giving a speach on what they had to learn "don't wory there not all as bad as him"
"I hope they aren't," Mara whispered back, still blushing from anxiety and embarrassment. She sighed and glanced at the strange boy. "Sorry, I don't think I caught your name..?"
"avexis" he went back to swinging on the chair, the topic of the lesson was mathamatics but avexis didnt seem to be doing any work
"Avexis..." Mara repeated quietly to herself. She gave him a shy smile. "Well... thank you, for helping me and whatnot..." He had to be the first person to ever stand up for her, she figured. But this was probably just a one-time thing, and she sighed a little sadly.
"no prob" the peice of work on his table was only a blank peice of paper, whilst other students had writing books and text books to look at, avexis did not seem to be bothered with the class "dont worry only 10 mins left of this crap" he said quitly, but loud enough for the teacher to hear, the teacher only replied with a grunt
"no prob" infront of avexis was a blank peice of lined paper and a pen, whilst everyone else in class had writing books and several text books to read from as well as calucluators and other things
Mara gave him a faint smile before getting out her textbook and notebook. Already, she got stuck on the first problem. She tried it out anyway, then frowned when she messed up and crumpled the paper. "Stupid..." Wihtout thinking, she glanced at Avexis; why wasn't he doing the schoolwork?
Avexis looke at mara crunching up her work and smiled slightly "take your time, its not as difficult as it seems" it seemed like he was speaking in riddles and he did not seem interested in the lesson, his loud yawn confermed that
Mara gave him a funny look, obviously confused. "But... if it isn't difficult..." She sighed, staring at the problem again and frowning. "But this is difficult!" Besides, how would he know? He wasn't even doing any work.
"its not when you break it down, look at question one, use a little pythagoris theorim, then find the definate intergral and sketch the curve" all through the conversation Avexis was looking at the clock as if begging for the boring lesson to end
Mara sighed, trying again and muttering to herself. But it still didn't look right. "Oh, whatever," she said finally, slamming the pen down. "I've never been good at math anyway. Drama - that's my subject." She glanced up at the clock; not much time left till the end of class. Thank goodness.
