"Well you know..." I try to say, flustered. Then I adopt another approach, cocky, the one I know best, "You know, it's what any decent guy would do right?" I give her a pearly white toothed slightly crooked smile at her, and try to look really cool and like it's no big deal. I am acting like I do around Lexi and her friends, but with Kit it feels like I'm lying. It feels like I'm not being honest but I can't think of anything else to do so I turn around and walk out of the office, trying to wipe the lies off my face and feeling guilt sink in on me.
He walks out of the office, but has to go through the workout room. I catch up to him grabbing him by the arm to stop him. "I can see through that. You are lying." I state. Part of me hopes that he would admit it and open up to me, the other part of me is afraid he will push me away.
"What?" I ask, bewildered, "What do you mean I'm lying?" I scoff, pulling my arm out of her grasp.
"I have no idea what you are talking about." I lie, "Look, I should get back to the game." Just as I say that though, the bell rings and people start filing out of the gym. I really should go, Lexi is gonna wonder where I was the whole game. Suddenly though I find myself turning back towards Kit. Without meaning to, without even knowing what I'm doing, I suddenly I find that I am very close to her, breathing her breath and without meaning to, I press my lips to hers just for a moment before I pull away, my face bright red and rush out of the room.
............... No. That did not just happen. I tell myself as I stand alone in the room. At first I though I misread him then....no. He did not just kiss me, then blush and run out to... His girlfriend.... Oh. Great. Now I'm a side object. Could this day get any better? These thoughts fill my mind as I head to lunch. Lunch great. But if Lexi hits him again I'm going to flip out. I sigh and head to the cafeteria.
I rush back into the gym, I have no idea what I just did. As I change back into my jeans I realize I am shaking all over. I try to relax, to cool off, but I am really freaked out by what I just did.
Lexi is waiting outside the locker room and as I look at her, I feel like I want to throw up. I feel kinda sick and want nothing more than to go hide in my dorm instead of going into the cafeteria. I must look pretty bad because Lexi asks me if I'm ok, "You look as white as a sheet." She says in her sickeningly perky voice.
"I'm fine I say." Looking away from her, "I think I'm gonna skip lunch." ((Is it lunch or dinner now?)) I say weakly, but she grabs my arm and pulls me to the cafeteria.
(( dinner lol ))
So off I went to the cafeteria with Piper and that other guy who's name turned out to be Jonas.
"OOh pizza!" I say with a smile. Then I turn to Piper and whisper "Is this one okay to eat?"
((Lunch! I think..... Lol we could make it dinner so that they have no more classes for they day. And make it a Friday so they have the weekend.... Hmmmmm))
I enter the cafeteria to find my table.gladly no one is sitting in it. I retrieve my normal green apple, the only eddable thing in my view, and take a seat. I watch Lexi enter, I dare her to try something. I dare her. I really don't know what I'm doing as I take a seat in my chair. I guess I'll just watch everyone like normal.
((No, they had chili eariler so.... I think it's dinner. Lol I have no idea.))
"I don't know." I say matter of factly in responce to Samantha, "I decided not to investigate it since I didn't really want to know the answer." I say grabbing a big slice of cheese pizza and an apple, "It certainly tastes like any pizza I have ever had before so, if it is fake, they do it well!"
((And I see you have already been answered and I was wrong. Lol))
((Yeah dinner. I think the classes part of this is kinda boring so it's better if there aren't any more for the day. HAha))
Lexi clings to my arm dragging me to the last place I want to be right now. She pulls me up to the counter. I should be suspicous, Lexi never eats anything but salad from the salad bar so why is she walking up to the pizza window. I zone out, not really caring much what she does, I look around the room and my gaze falls on Kit and I quickly look away.
Lexi orders a chocolate shake. Ok, now I am paying attention, what is she playing at? The thing is giant and has a gross smell of fake chocolate syrup and a disgusting tinge of something unnatural.
Lexi drags me behind her as she walks through the cafeteria. She isn't heading towards our usual table. With horror I realize what she is doing, but it's too late. Lexi lets go of my arm and marches right up to Kit Petite, a smug look of pride on her face.
"Stay away from my boyfriend." Lexi says to Kit, I suddenly see everything in slow motion, there is nothing I can do stop it. Lexi takes the giant chocolate milkshake and flings it in Kit's face.
"Oops!" She says and turns to me a giant self satisfied smile on her face.
((Haha. I don't think it really matters but you know if it's the end of the day on Friday we can focus more on the people and less on the boring classes... haha ))
(( Sounds great lol ))
I can't stop myself, she messed with the wrong girl. I wipe the shake from my eyes then I jerk her around by the shirt and slug her, right in the nose. I know how to fight and I know how to hit. There is no way it wasn't broken. It was likely bleeding all over the place too. I run out of the room as fast as I can, I'm not upset about this, she has a broken bleeding nose, I'm coverd in a shake. I win. What I am upset about is the fact that he was likely laughing. I can't help but think that as I dash down the hall, for once, I hate this place.
I sat there with Piper and Jonas. Horrified! I can't believe she dumped that milk shake on her!
I am about to walk over and help her out when Kit punches the girl right in the nose.
I felt like Kit may have needed some space so I went over and tried to see how the other girl was doing. She had blood everywhere!
I bend over and try to talk to her:
"Hey are you okay?"
"GET AWAY FROM ME!!" she screams as she pushes me back.
Then she storms out of the cafeteria followed by her own clique of the popular girls.
A bunch of teachers come in asking questions and telling us to go back to eating our lunches.
I stand frozen in pure shock. The cafeteria has gone completely silent and all eyes are on me and Lexi or at the door where I am sure Kit just ran. I have no idea what is going on, the world seems to be spinning before my eyes, all sound seems distant and as if it is coming from underwater, or maybe there just isn't any sound at all. I look around at Lexi, amazed that she was so cruel to Kit, and I see that her nose is streaming blood. I close my eyes, trying to calm myself down, but the world is sprinning and there is a ringing in my ears. My head feels light and I can smell Lexi's blood. My mind spins faster still, the last few minutes swirling in my brain trying to understand what is going on. Suddenly, I feel my stomach clench, my eyes fly open and I throw up my entire lunch all over the floor.
*Janitors please make your way to the cafeteria; janitor to the cafeteria.*
I hear the announcement go off, no doubt my dad would be upset about this. Not at me, after all the entire thing was on tape. I was sitting alone and she came up to me. The cafeteria has had cameras in it for as long as I remember. I fled to my room where I jumped into the shower. I wasn't done with little Lexi. She messed with the wrong girl.
I stomp my way into the lunchroom. It's extremely quiet, I was in the office watching the live feed when it happened, though i only saw the milkshake being tossed. I didn't stay to see what happened next. Great. I wasn't going to do much to the girl, she would get enough later I'm sure. Then as I walk into the room and see the blood I can tell she had already gotten her payback. Wow, my little girl works fast. I enter the back of the room to observe. No need for me to do anything yet. This was a everyday thing around here. Though it typically didn't envolve Kit.
I sit there amazed. Stuff like this may happen a lot, but it is never quite this bad. There isn't usually that much blood and it doesn't usually include 'populars', so this is kinda remakrable. I am actually a bit scared, I mean I always knew there were some crazy people here but that was real intense. The teachers rush in and the janitors as well, ready to clean things up, and I look back down at my pizza, suddenly not very hungry.
"Woah." I say quietly to Samantha and the Jonas guy, my eyes wide.
Lexi runs off and I feel the world go momentraily black before my eyes. I feel sick and horrified, confused and simply like a horrible person. I try to regain my composure, but it doesn't work, so I give up and start to walk out of the door. Someone steps in from of me, blocking the exit.
"I'll see you in my office I hear." It is a voice I know all too well.
I send over someone to inform Austen of the meeting we will be having later. We will just have to see what this was all about. Sure it wasn't his fault, but that didn't mean he didn't do anything.
I wish the suds out of my hair getting rid of the last drop of milkshake. It wasn't that I was upset that it happened, I was upset that he went to the line with her and knew what she was doing. That he let her. He didn't stop her.
I look up, Mr. Petite's secretary is standing in front of me, but I barely see her. I look over to the side and see Mr. Petite looking at me. I feel like I am going to throw up again and lean hard against the wall trying not to pass out. Why am I so squimish? Why is this all effecting me so much? I shouldn't care about Kit. I should care about Lexi, but I don't. I have no idea what is going on. I feel like someone punched me in the stomach really hard.
"Are you alright?" The secretary asks me. I try to nod but it doesn't really work. "Let's get you to my office." She says, her voice softening. I feel my feet guiding me out of the cafeteria, toward what is likely to be my doom. I am sure they are going to punish me like crazy even though I didn't do anything. Mr. Petite probably thinks I attacked his daughter I think, my stomach clenching with dread.
Kit. My mind wanders to her, I hope she is alright. I also hope she doesn't think the milk shake was my idea. I can't bear the idea of her hating me because she thinks I had something to do with it all.
