Pay Back and New Eye candyI looked down at the very thick pieces of paper that sat upon me, the test that would determine if I was eligible to graduate with my class. I looked up at the clock, 11:15. I had until two o’ clock to finish the fifty questions that are printed in this test. I painfully and slowly opened the test to the first page. I sighed and begun to answer the very first question.
It seemed like days before I finally finished the test, turns out it was only an hour. So instead of getting just one hour of free time we got three or two and a half anyway. This is what I was hoping to avoid, social interaction. I had tons of friends but this class I had one and we weren’t exactly on speaking terms. We had gotten into an argument about something that was completely stupid, a boy. She couldn’t understand that I was trying to help her by telling her to stay away from him. She took it as if I actually wanted him for myself. Eric was the guy that had started it all, the all-American quarter back of Shaw View High. His blonde hair, blue eyes and tanned skin made him the perfect Barbie’s boyfriend. I had no taste in conceded guys like him. Sure he was good looking but I still cared about what was on the inside, and Eric was the every bit of opposite of what I looked for in a guy.
I looked over to where Addison was sitting, all alone. I sighed and got out of my chair and casually walked towards her watching every flicker of emotion crossing her face, anger, and annoyance but also longing and missing. “Addison I don’t want you to be mad at me for trying to look out for you and I definitely don’t want you thinking I like Eric either.” I waited and listened for her reply. She said nothing. I continued to stare at her “Addison?” She sighed and looked up at me with sadden eyes. “You were right about Eric, Avery. I caught him kissing Janet after school in the back when I was heading to softball practice.” My eyes popped wide open; I mean I knew Eric was fast at getting girls but not that fast. I frowned “I didn’t want to be right you know, I would have been happy if he proved me wrong, but…..” I trailed off letting her figure out what I was going to say. She shook her head “I should have listened to you Avery. If I did then I wouldn’t be so miserable right now.” I sighed and then smiled “Want me to punch him for you? Or have Witt beat him up for you in boxing after school?” She smiled “Why not both?” I smiled at her and nodded “Now you’re talking.” As soon as the first bell rung for everyone to get a break we dashed off to find Witt and his crew.
We had found Witt in his usual spot by the water fountain and walked towards him and his crew. From the looks of it he had at least one new member. The guy had dark brown hair and gorgeous hazel eyes that melted into your soul. His jaw line jutted out in curiosity as we approached. “Hey Witt, I got a job for you to do,” I smiled. He smiled “Anything for my sis, so what do you need me to do?” he asked concerned. I smiled “Beat up Eric at boxing practice today after school okay?” he laughed but nodded. “I’m surprised you didn’t want to do that yourself?” I smiled “Oh trust me, I am, soon.” Just then I saw Eric come out of the boys’ bathroom. I quickly got behind him and smiled ready. “Oh Eric!” Addison called out. He turned and was met with a hard fist to the face. I swore I could have heard his nose crack. His nose started bleeding. He looked at me with furious eyes. I simply smiled and waved, I then whispered in his ear. “This is what you get for being a jerk to my best friend.” He looked at me then back at Addison and fumed, he quickly walked away mad that I had ruined his so called perfect face. Witt laughed behind me “Honestly I don’t see why you tell me to do those things, yet your good at it yourself.” I laughed and shrugged. I stole a quick glance towards the guy that lay against the wall. He looked over at me in the same instant. I mentally kicked myself in the head for letting myself get caught. I quickly said goodbye to Witt and grabbed Addison’s arm and hauled her back to Ms.Feathermince class.
