I walked into school in my brand new outfit I bought the other day. I grabbed my schedule and locker combo then went straight to my locker. Not many other students were here so I snuck over to the schedule table while the PSO people were on a snack break. I scanned the back-up schedules til I found my exboyfriend's. I frowned when I had almost every class with him. I walked back to my locker and finished putting all my things in it. I set up my mirror, pictures, mini-chalkboard/dry erase board, and everything else that I had planned. When I went to wait in my homeroom class he and a few other kids were there. I sighed and walked in. He was quarterback of the football team and I was the head cheerleader, it was such an obligation that we had to go out and I only did it to make everybody else happy. Truth was: He was soo overrated. He's an idiot (well not literally because he has-surprisingly-pretty good grades), a perv, an@ss, and such a sleazebag! Ugh tried to get me out of my pants on the first freaking date. I sat as far away from him as possible and relived our break-up. I broke up with him...in front of all his friends. Total humiliation. I know he's going to come over here in about 3...2...1...Right on time...
"Hey Courtney." He said smiling and sitting in the desk next to mine.
"Oh, hey Derek."
"What's your schedule like?" He asked. I didn't really want to show him because then he'd know that he could sit near me in practically all the classes.
"Um..I..." I sighed and handed him the sheet.
"Cool we're in like all the same classes!!" He said with a big grin on his face.
"Just wonderful." I said, sarcasm filling my voice. He frowned.
"C'mon Courtney, don't start the year off like this. I'm trying to be nice."
I rolled my eyes, "Well you're being annoying. I'm not taking you back so don't ask."
"At least tell me why you did it in front of all the guys."
"Because you specifically said after I asked to talk to you alone 'If you can say it to me, you can say it to the team' so I did."
"Oh..right. Well how was your summer?"
"Fabulous, thanks for asking. And yours?"
"Awesome, I went to Santa Monica and met this girl Al-"
"As in you had a fling with her?" I asked not surprised that he'd hook up with some poor unfortunate girl.
He shook his head, and now I was surprised, "No we spent like 2 weeks there and then my dad let me extend it to 4. Allie and I got really serious, and she said she was even moving here, isn't that awesome?"
"Perfect. I'm happy for you. Maybe you won't drool over me in Calc knowing your girlfriend could have a spy-friend watching you." I said rolling my eyes. A girl walked in and froze when she saw me and Derek talking. Talking very close I might add, we were practically on top of each other.
"DEREK!!" She squealed when she came over. She wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him for quite a long time.
"I'll give you two some space..." I said knowing that that was exactly what Allie wanted me to do. I walked over to the other side of the room where I wouldn't be interrupted by anybody.
