Aaron walked out, feeling a sense of calm wash over him. That could have been a lot worse than what it was. His parents probably wouldn't even really notice him being gone for a few extra hours.
"Do you know where the detention room is?' Aaron questioned.
"My last class is English. Find your way there and I'll take you to detention." With that said, he walked out of the room.
Aaron walked to his last class, English of course, carefully going the way he knew Jed would be the least likely to go. All he had to do was survive the rest of the day and detention, then he wouldn't have to deal with this again.
Five minutes. He would wait five minutes, then he would leave. Of course, he probably wait longer by accident, but only by accident. He wouldn't mean too, because he was still mad at her. As long as he repeated this long mantra it would have to be true.
It was six minutes, past time. He should leave. Really he should. That clock was fast though, so maybe he should stay a little bit longer........
Well, she wasn't coming to the English classroom. Most of the kids were already leaving. Something in the back of his mind,=, though, nagged at him. What if she just got held up? And what do you care if she did?
If she didn't hurry up, they would both be late. Being late to detention was not exactly what Aaron would call a good idea.
'Finally," Aaron said, feeling relief even more than when he had left the principal's office. "Let's go."
"Are you cold or something?' Aaron made a left turn, the detention room in his sights.
"Alright. We're here." Aaron held open the door for Mandy.
The principal was leaning against a wall, checking her watch. "Just barely made it. Alright, rules. No talking, eating, drinking, or horseplay. You can study if you want, and you're staying for an hour. Got it?" Aaron nodded his head and picked a seat at the back of the class.
Theprincipal took a book and sat down at the desk to read it. Aaron just sat there twirling his dumbs and trying not to stare at the clock.
((Sorry, school has been a bit mean lately and has given me a lot of work to do. I'll try to most more often.))
Tick tock, tick tock. Would the clock ever go faster or was he doomed to spend another 50 minutes sitting here, trying not to look forward and apologize?
It was almost annoyingly quiet in the room. Aaron nervously tapped his foot, trying to bounce some sound around.
"I'm going to go check on something for a second. You two, well I doubt you'll do much. Just sit there and be quiet until I get back," The principal took long strides out of the room, in an obvious hurry.
