[I have unfinished scenarios, which is why this is #9, but I don't think I'm ever finishing them]
I sighed as I sat in my English class, awaiting for the end of the school day to come. We were taking a test, vocabulary to be more precise, and there was only five minutes left. The room was full of silence, not even the clock dared to speak. Looking to my left, I saw that everyone was either: working on the quiz, writing random things, or texting. Leaning against the beige wall, I thought of nothing else to do but text some people.
I turned my body twenty-five degrees clockwise, so I were to face the beige wall in front of me. I reached into my pocket, and slowly took my phone out. The time said that it was 2:38PM. Two more minutes of this silent hell, then freedom for two days. I looked at the top of my phone and saw that I had received a text, it was from Kevin.
The text said, "I have surprise for you (:"
I smiled and replied with, "Oh really? What is it? d:"
A few seconds later, he texted back with, "You'll see really soon (:"
Mrs. Brown got up and I quickly replied with, "Aha alright then~" and shoved my phone back into my pocket. She was telling everyone to pass up the quizzes and start packing up because the bell was going to ring soon. She came up to my row first, and headed down towards her desk. After collecting the papers, we all waited in anticipation to exit. The bell rang, but no one made a move. We finally learned that the bell does not dismiss us, not in her class. She smiled and said that we were able to leave, and I was the first one out.
I quickly took my phone out, just because I enjoyed taking my phone out for no reason. I quickly changed my phone back on full blast and was heading towards the ASB, where I always go after school. I heard my phone go off as I got a text, and I quickly took my phone out and read the message. It was Kevin, he said, "Flagpoles are really great places to go to meet people if you get lost, don't you think?"
I didn't understand it during then, and tried to think of a reply while I was walking towards the ASB. If you were unaware, the ASB is right across the flagpole and right next to the office. As usual, Nico and I were there before anyone else, besides Jordan. I forgot momentarily about what Kevin had texted me, until I saw the top of our flagpole and it reminded me of the text.When I started looking down the pole, because I was staring at the flag, I saw him.
My heart was racing, I kept telling myself that he wasn't actually there. He was facing the front office, there were signs everywhere around the school homecoming. Then turned around to find me looking straight at him. He smiled and waved at me, and started walking over. None of my friends realized what was going on, until I decided to drop my stuff and run towards him. Of course, I raped hugged him. Although, he was able to take the impact of my running rape hug pretty well, very well to say.
"There is no way that you're actually here," My ear was facing his chest and I was looking towards the library, I wasn't able to believe that he was actually here.
"Oh, well then I must be your imagination," He laughed a little. "Then again, if I wasn't really here, how are you hugging me?"
I let go and I went back to go get my stuff. He followed me back, looking at my friends and at the school. My friends were looking at me with a "what the hell" face. When I noticed that they were looking at me, I looked back at them.
"What. It's not like I've never done that before," I had a sort of confused face on. "Why do you now choose to look at me like that."
"No reason," Cassi replied. After a small pause, she said, "It's just been a while since you've been so happy to see someone that much."
Julie was looking at Kevin, trying to remember if she's seen him around from somewhere. Nico was paying no attention to what was going on, he couldn't have cared less. Jordan was looking from Kevin to me, to Kevin, to me. I picked up my stuff and put my backpack back on. Kevin then tapped my shoulder and decided to whisper something in my ear. He had to bend down quite a bit, just to be able whisper into my ear.
"Should we go now? I feel awkward being around all your friends actually, if that's fine with you." I couldn't blame him, you couldn't get used to my friends within just one day of being with them. Sometimes, it's just impossible to be able to get along with them at all.
I nodded and I grabbed his arm and started dragging him towards the exit while the rest of my friends were waiting for Ariel and Darren. I waved bye and quickly turned and fastened my pace, dragging Kevin along with me.
He quickly matched my pace and we were walking quite fast. He laughed a little and we started slowing down, I ended up holding onto his arm how I hold on to Christian and Shaniqua's. Uh.. Like how a Koala holds on to a bamboo stick. We were going up the ramp to the bridge and loosened my grip around his arm.
"Sorry for just dragging you away like that," I laughed under my breath.
"It's fine it's fine," he smiled. "I'm just wondering why we're moving so fast, like, are we racing someone or something?"
"They walk the same way, and I really don't like walking with Jordan," I sighed. We were halfway across the bridge and I heard bikes behind us. After I figured out who it was, I sighed and said under my breath, "Speaking of Jordan..." I got closer to Kevin and tightened my grip.
I was right, and Jordan went right in front of us on 'his' bike and stopped right in front of us. Kevin and I stopped dead in our tracks. Then I tried to go around him, and he wouldn't allow it. It was hard to go around while holding on to Kevin, but I knew if I let go there was a better change of me getting caught. I sighed, I was about to let go of Kevin and try to trick Jordan; although, Kevin decided to talk instead.
"What do you want? Can you not see that we're walking?" He noticed how I reacted to Jordan's presence, and knew I didn't want him there.
"Who are you anyways? You just suddenly show up here and take Sarena?" He looked back at Kevin.
I was about to open my mouth and say something, but Kevin continued. "I'm Kevin, that's all you need to know. What, is it bad if I decide to show up and surprise her?"
I decided to let go of Kevin and go up to Jordan, slap him, and say, "What the f*ck Jordan. Why are you here. Don't you think that there's a reason I'm starting to walk with you guys less and less? Oh my God Jordan go away. Get the f*ck away. Can you not see that we're walking here?" I knew that wouldn't work, but it put him into a short daze while thinking about what I just said. I used that as my advantage and swiftly went around him, and Kevin caught on and got around him as well. Jordan noticed as soon as we got passed him, talk about a slow reacting, and started following us.
I grabbed Kevin's wrist again and dragged him to the right, when we'd normally go left. I told him to run up the drain line and just keep going up. He went up first, and I followed. The hill was steep, but it was the fastest way up the hill. Also, Jordan would not have been able to bring his bike up that way. I was hoping that he wouldn't be able to catch up, so when we got to the top I looked down the hill to see where he was. He was near the end of the bridge, I guessed that he was waiting for the rest of the people.
I laughed a little and dragged Kevin the rest of the way into my neighborhood, where Jordan or anyone else wouldn't be able to find us easily. We stopped at the little playground, climbed on top, and sat there. We were full of laughter for no reason. There was really nowhere else for us to go, and I doubted anyone would actually try to get me. Besides, I was right in front of my house, so there was no point. The cool winter air gave me the chills, I forgot to put a jacket on this morning because I woke up too late to even consider it.
Kevin noticed and took off his light grey jacket, and came up behind me to put it on me. His jacket was so comfy, soft, and warm. I wrapped myself around it and smiled, he smiled too. Then he sat right in front of me and we talked about everything and about nothing. I was unsure if any of my friends passed by, possibly, but I'm not so sure. Then a certain topic came up, one that caught my attention: homecoming.
He was talking about how nice homecoming is and how it's an event you probably wouldn't want to miss. He also talked about how he noticed all the fliers at school mentioning that homecoming was that day, and asked if I was planning on going. Hugging me knees, I look right at my knees and shook my head. I explained that I didn't want to go, since no one else wanted to go with me/be my date. Well actually, because I didn't want to ask anyone and nobody asked me.
He sighed in relief, and I wondered why. "I thought that you'd already have somebody to go with, so I was really unsure of this but," he paused for a moment and said, " do you want to go to homecoming with me?"
I looked at him in shock and then smiled. "Of course!" I said. I was so happy, and then I paused for a moment. "Wait, you don't go to my school, so how are you getting in?"
He smiled at the ground and, "I talked to some people, pulled some strings, bent some rules, and I got in."
I hugged him, and realized another thing. "What are you going to wear though, wait better yet, why are you down here?"
He scratched the back of his head and smiled. "My cousin moved down here and we decided to stop by to say hi and help them move. They live by Hillsborough, can you believe it? My moms letting me 'go exploring' aha. My cousin probably has something for me to wear."
"Oh okay," I smiled. Homecoming started at six and it was only four. "Do you want to go around places around here for a bit? I mean, guys have been banned from my house and all..."
"Why?" Kevin asked out of pure curiosity.
"Because Jordan, and how much my dad doesn't like him and doesn't trust him," I loathed Jordan. "My dad has banned guys from my house because I let them in in the morning, even after he said not to. But what else was I able to do? He was sleeping in the living room." I sighed and said, "Well, it doesn't matter now. I'll ask him again during my sophomore year."
We both stood up and starting walking off the playground. As we were walking, we were talking about how fun homecoming would be. There were times where he would just pet my head. Standing side by side, I was barely up to his shoulder. Through all those laughs and playful hits, we passed by someone who was just standing at the corner of a building. I didn't pay any attention to the person at all, I was too busy messing around with Kevin.
As we turned another corner, I asked Kevin if he could give me a piggy back ride. He said okay and crouched down and I jumped on. I felt someone was looking at me from the corner we just passed by, but I didn't have enough time to check. We were off to go look around the area around us and just spend probably the whole day together.
