“So, who’s your favourite among the loverboys?” I asked and she blushed.
“Huh? Of course it’s Alex. Who else could it be?” She replied happily.
“But…If you were to chose between Theo and Alex, whom would you chose?” I asked and she looked stuck a bit.
“Well…I don’t know. Theo’s also very lovely and comparable to Alex. But, I think id still chose Alex” she replied and I smiled.
“What about the lovergirls? Are they also in my grade?” I asked and Carissa crinkled up her face.
“Who? Those spoilt arrogant brats?” She asked and I pulled a surprised face.
“Huh? Why are you saying that about them? I love them” I said defensively and she scoffed.
“Trust me, darling. It’s because you haven’t gotten to meet them.
They’re vipers, especially their leader – Kimberly. She’s a she wolf. You really need to be careful with them” .
I scoffed and shook my head. Is she serious or something?
Kimberly is my role model.
How can she tell me to be careful around her?
Carissa and I went on talking for sometime and I kind of enjoyed her company. She was a fun person.
After lunch, she followed me to class. But since we were in different grades, we couldn’t stay together and she left afterwards.
To be sincere, I didn’t entirely enjoy my first day in Alpha High because I didn’t get to meet any of my superstars – aside Alex who had just acted blinded towards me.
After some hours, the school was over and everybody headed home.
When I got home, luckily, dad was still around. And so, his wife and kids didn’t have an opportunity to bully me.
Too bad he’ll be leaving tomorrow.
I had dinner with him and explained briefly about my first day in alpha high. Although I didn’t tell him about the Alex part.
We spent a long time together and after a while, I went up to my room for a bath and a rest.
Well, like I said, I only get to enjoy these privileges when dad was around .
The moment he leaves again by tomorrow, my life’s gonna turn into a living hell.
I brought out my diary and wrote about my little experience with Alex.
It was very brief, but meant a lot to me . I kept smiling the whole time.
I remembered his sweet words to me:
“Do you realise this is a restricted area?”
Hold on; did I just say sweet?
Well, at that moment, they were scary. But right now, they’re sweet.
I could recall how cute he looked when he turned around to pick up the keys – those dazzling eyes of his; the nose; the sweet pink lips and the hair.
I wish I could be hold that face again. Even if it was just for a second.
‘I really like you, Alex’ I wrote in my diary.
‘And I wish I could take away the sadness you feel.
Too bad you now dislike ladies’.
I closed the diary and led upwards, rethinking the whole thing.
I really wish I can get to see Alex again.
Well, tomorrow was tuesday, right? And we had further maths.
Mr Leonard’s definitely going to force him to come to class.
I really can’t wait.
I wish I get to sit next to him.
I woke up the next morning, feeling kind of excited.
I had breakfast and dressed up and after that, dad dropped me off at school.
“See you later, Jeanne” he told me as he stopped in front of the school and awaited me to step down.
I was sitting down at the front seat with him.
“Dad” I called sadly.
“When will you be travelling?”
“Oh; in less than two hours” he replied and my eyes drooped.
“Uhm…how long will it take before you return?”
“Uhm…I don’t know; maybe some weeks”.
My heart ached when he told me about it. I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like living with those family of his.
“Don’t worry, Jeanne. Everything will be fine, okay?” He said, kissed my forehead and I smiled and left the car.
Back again in Alpha High. I hope today won’t be as boring as yesterday.
I started walking into the building, admiring all the students I came across. Too bad none of them paid attention to me.
I got to the classroom and took a seat at the back close to the window.
More students kept trooping in and I looked curiously for the loverboys.
Oh; maths was the last subject before break.
That means the loverboys might not be coming now.
After a short while, the first teacher came in and took us on science.
I just jolted perfunctorily as that wasn’t what I was waiting for.
Then, after 45 minutes, the next teacher came in and took us on social norms. And finally, it was time for maths!
I can hardly wait!
The maths teacher came in and commenced teaching and I was kind of puzzled because the loverboys were yet to come.
I itched my head and couldn’t pay attention to the lesson because my mind was occupied.
Where are the loverboys? I thought they never fail to miss Mr Leonard’s class?
I became brood and totally lost focus in the class.
I had really planned on seeing them.
“Can anyone help with the equation on the board?” Mr Leonard’s voice broke into my thoughts and I took a look at the board.
It was a familiar equation.
“Yes? Anyone? Jeanne? The new student?” He called and I felt surprised he had actually called my name.
Some of the students turned and looked at me and I became nervous.
“Jeanne, can you help us out?” He asked again and I stuttered and stood on my feet.
“Uhm…okay sir” I replied as I walked up to the front of the class and took the marker from him.
Then, I faced the board and started solving the equation.
like I said, it was a familiar equation. But since it was further maths, it had to be lengthy.
I was still focused on the board, solving the equation when I suddenly heard the students gasping and jiltering.
I turned to see what was going on and…Oh, my God!
Oh, my God!
They really did come!
Am I dreaming?
