Chapter 24

The next day, while Nadia was driving Chris and Sheva to school, instead of going in the drop off lane, she parked the car.

"Why are you parking mom?" Sheva asked from the back seat.

"Didn't I tell you yesterday that I was going to go talk to the principal about the Jill problem?" Nadia asked her, as she opened her car door and got out. Chris and Sheva followed got out of the car too.

"You don't have to say anything momma, you can go back home." Sheva told her mother as she walked beside her.

"Sheva, why don't you want me to do something about this?"

"Because every time you do something about a bullying problem, the school says they will do something about it but they never do and then the person will find out and bully me even more!" Sheva told her mother quickly.

"I'm going to tell and if there's more bullying going on then I will talk to Jill." Nadia told her and continued to walk into the building, leaving Chris and Sheva behind.

"Oh my goshhhh…" Sheva groaned into her hands.

"Don't worry Sheva, I'm quite confident that your mom will scare the school just enough to get them to do something about it." Chris chuckled as he squeezed her hand. Sheva smiled at him and told him he had no idea how scary she was when she is mad.

They all made it into the building and walked into the office.

"Well, we are just going to go to class. Love you mom!" Sheva said as she placed a quick kiss on her mother's cheek and tried to leave.

"No you guys are staying right here. I want you both to tell them what happened." Nadia said as she pointed to the two chairs in the office. They both sat down and Sheva groaned then rested her head on Chris' shoulder, then he rested his head her on top of hers.

"I am totally going to be labeled a snitch…" She told him with a roll of her eyes.

"No you won't, people would be thanking you instead of giving you a bad name."

"Sure…" Sheva chuckled. Just then a woman came to talk to Sheva's mother. They had a quick conversation and then the woman called the couple back for some questioning.

She asked them all the things she needed to know and sent them back to class with a pass after Sheva said goodbye to her mother.

The couple walked into class together and everybody stopped what they were doing and looked at them.

"Well, why are you two late to my class?" Mrs. Jefferson asked as they walked in.

"We were at the office, but we have a pass." Sheva told her as she handed her the pass.

"Oh ok then, well go ahead and get with your partners and get to work." She told the two as she took the pass. They both went to their partners and got to work.

The whole hour went by without any flirting from Piers which both Chris and Sheva were both thankful for and they got lots of work done so tomorrow all they had to do was type up their essay and print it.

In the hallway after class, Chris walked Sheva to her math class like he always did. While they stood in the line waiting to go into class, they saw a hall monitor talking to Jill and they could see Jill was not very pleased with the conversation. Jill and the hall monitor walked out of the hallway, but not before Jill glared at the two.

"Uh oh…" Chris said out loud.

"You can say that again…" Sheva sighed.

"Uh oh…" Chris said once again. Sheva giggled at him and told him she would see him at lunch, and then they went their separate ways.

"What was with the glare from Jill?" Sherry asked from behind Sheva.

"How long have you been back there?" Sheva asked surprised.

"The whole time!" Sherry giggled at her friend.

"Ok… so anyway but Chris and I told the office about the incident at lunch and now I think they are going to talk to Jill about it…" Sheva told her with s shrug of her shoulders.

"Oh, well I hope everything goes well."

"Me too…" Sheva agreed then entered the math classroom.

About two hours later Sheva found herself at the lunch table with her friends.

"So are you guys doing anything fun this weekend?" Helena asked the group.

"Well, I'm actually going to be spending time with my dad! He's coming here tomorrow!" Sheva told them excitedly.

"Oh that's great!" Sherry said, happy for her friend.

"Not for me!" Chris said told them.

"Why is it not great for you?" Sheva asked her nervous boyfriend.

"Oh… I get it, he's AFRAID to meet daddy!" Jake teased him. Sherry punched Jake in the arm and glared at him.

"You know what Jake? Yeah, I'm afraid to meet her dad because I don't want to make a bad impression on him and end up losing Sheva because he doesn't like me." Chris admitted to everyone out loud. The girls at the table awed at this. Jake was speechless, he was surprised that Chris would say something like that out loud. With all of his other girlfriends, Chris wasn't worried about meeting their fathers but with Sheva it was a whole different story.

"Aw Chris, you really feel that way?" Sheva asked Chris as she leaned her head on his shoulder.

"Of course I do, I love you." He smiled at her.

"Aw, I love you too!" Sheva said as she pinched his cheek.

"Whoa! Whoa! Whoa… Whoa!" Sherry said loudly.

"What?" Sheva asked, confused by her friends surprised attitude.

"You guys just said you LOVE each other. When did this happen?"

"Yesterday…" Chris told her slowly.

"And no one thought to tell me!?" She asked in disbelief.

"Sherry, this just happened yesterday. We were going to tell you at some point." Sheva told her laughing a bit. Just then the bell rang signaling lunch was over. The group dumped their trays and headed down to their hall then went their separate ways.
