1. REBECCA

I’m growing impatient waiting for my friends to make their lovely appearance.

I’m starving and angry, and the crowd in this cafeteria doesn’t ease my irritation whatsoever.

“Sup bitchhhhh.” Jessica draws out and throws her arms around me from behind.

I roll my eyes and kick my feet up on the lunch table, proceeding to throw my hair over my shoulder.

“Where in the hell have you guys been?” I grit my teeth in annoyance and fold my arms; rolling my eyes.

Jessica clicks her tongue at me and rolls her eyes just like me, which are equally irritated.

Her lengthy black hair whooshes from the force of the wind slamming the double doors open.

As if ripping the door off its hinges would boost its dramatic irrelevance.

“We were keeping Amber from falling for Mr. Berkeley again.”

As Christina saunters toward us, Jessica comments and pops a mint in her mouth.

Her thick figure is dressed in a pair of slim skinny jeans and a maroon sweater.

She plops into the seat next to mine and I pinch the bridge of my nose, letting out a heavy sigh.

“It wouldn’t be the first and certainly not the last.”

I utter in a melancholic voice whereas Christina looks at me puzzled with scrunched eyes.

Jessica just shakes her head, which is peeved, to say the least, and perches her chin on her forearms.

While the time ticked away, Christina and Jessica sat there like two bumps on a log.

Meanwhile, I pull my ombré hair from inside my jacket and chew on a piece of spearmint gum.

Amber has had this massive crush on the new English teacher for months now and apparently, there’s even a rumor that she’s sleeping with him.

Leave it to my best friend to start drama nonetheless. “He’s so hot though and oh girl that tongue-“

“You look ridiculous.” Amber makes her entrance by trying to imitate the way her teacher uses his tongue.

She looks so stupid with her lips mushed together as she tries to swirl her tongue in the air.

“Did you hear the new boy coming to school? I hear he’s in Max’s friend group. They’re like cousins or something like that.”

Briana chimes in with Amber clung to her side and her blonde hair glistens from excessive hairspray.

“Probably just another wanna-be man-whore trying to get laid.”

I dryly say and perch my feet on the chair opposite of me.

Jessica snorts on her coffee mid-swallow meanwhile Christina tries to coax Briana into going out.

Which apparently turned into all of us going out even though I explicitly said I couldn’t make it.

“We should go clubbing tonight!” Briana slung her arms around my shoulders and I groan in disgust.

“I’m not carrying your drunk ass out of the club.”

Christina affirmatively utters as we walk down the hallway hand in hand with each other.

Jessica and I both get squished in a sweaty bear hug thanks to Briana and her affectionate ways.

“I have studying to do tonight.” I barely murmur, yet Briana heard it and coldly glared at me.

I may be one of the most incredible girls at the school, but I’m certainly not stupid; I’m actually fairly smart.

All AP classes senior year and half the time I don’t even pay attention and still get an A.

I’m just lucky I guess.

“Bitch you study too much. You need to get your cherry blossom ass out there.”

I put a cold scowl on my face and shove my hands into the pockets of my skinny jeans.

“I have a test coming up.” I shrug my shoulders covered by a light pink spaghetti-strap tank top.

“Besides I don't want to put myself out there. I have better things to do with my time than worry about some boyfriend who's probably going break up with me the minute he can't handle it.”

Christina opens her mouth to say something when the biggest asshole on campus comes toward us.

“Do you not understand English or should I say it in Spanish so you'll understand? You need to stay away from Max before I rip both of your eyes out. Or better yet how about a break off your legs so you can't walk anymore.”

Vanessa or ‘Barbie’ as we so affectionately call her demands with venom dripping in her tone.

“Barbie I can hang out with whoever I want whenever I want and don’t need you to tell me otherwise. Now move the fuck out of my way before I move you myself.”

The height of my figure allows me to tower over her and blankly stare with no remorse.

For a moment her face falters and I see a hint of fear forming in those feline, chestnut eyes.

Then each of Vanessa’s features lights up with rage and she venomously glares at me through thick, false eyelashes.

Every line on her forehead creases from the texture of her caked foundation.

“Excuse me?” I clench my teeth together from the squeaky pitch of her voice.

“Your fucking excused.” I bitterly mutter and start walking in the opposite direction.

“If you think you can just say that to me and walk away your wrong.”

Vanessa grabs a fistful of my hair and yanks it downward when I twist her wrist.

Her face which was once wild with rage winces in immense pain and discomfort.

With a flick of the wrist, I loosen her grip on my hair and flip her the middle finger.

“Well, congrats I just did so go find another doctor to fix those creases in your forehead.”

I brush past her and forcefully shove my shoulder into her’s on my way out.

Then straighten my leather jacket and brush the dust off my chest from our previous encounter.

“Damn girl!” Jessica snickers with a snobbish smile on her face.

I simply shrug it off because honestly it’s no big deal and proceeds to lean against the lockers.

“That bitch is annoying. My ears bled from her voice.” Briana pretends to faint, which causes me to laugh and slap her arm.

Meanwhile, Christina pulls her phone out and messages someone. “I’m gonna go ask Max for his sister’s number.”

She mumbles and walk’s away when all four of us turn our heads in her direction. “What?”

Christina gawks at us as we assume a position with our hands on our hips. “You wanna get laid.”

We remark in unison and Christina rolls her eyes in an attempt to hide the blush on her cheeks.

“Bye hoes, see you tomorrow.” She yells and flips us the bird on her way out, yet I break into a band of laughter and smile.

God, I love that girl...

“I fight tonight. Make sure you guys are there at nine. I need moral support.” Briana announces.

Ah, that reminds me…

I may have accidentally forgotten her last fight and have been paying for it ever since.

“You gonna kick Natalia’s ass again?” Amber snorts into her fist.

“When have I not?” Briana flaunts her hair to the other side of her face and smiles smugly.

I roll my eyes into the back of my head and pull a hair tie from my front jacket pocket. “I’ll be there.”

Amber declares and I disappear behind a set of double doors. “Call me when you come to my house! See you then.”

Jessica nods at me and I saunter towards the parking lot accompanied by my white Ferrari.

“Yo Becca wait up!” Max yells from afar and I swiftly turn around.

His muscular frame comes into view as his shaggy blonde hair covers his eyes.

“Sup.” I grin and lean against the doorframe of the driver’s side. “I came to give you your notebook back.”

He warmly smiles and I take it from his hands. “Thanks.”

I go to open the door and put the key in the ignition just when Max speaks up again. “Hey, I was wondering...”

I inwardly groan and squeeze my eyes shut as he rubs the back of his neck with an anxious palm.

“Can I invite you and the girls to my cousin’s coming home party? I know you’re the only one who hasn’t met him, but I don’t know, maybe it’ll be fun.”

“Uh yeah when is it?” I ask partially relieved and m shoulders ease from their original tense state.

“This weekend after the frat party.”

“The one your brother Jasper is holding?”

It’s well known for Max and his brother to host many frat parties this time of year.

“Yeah.” He replies and I smile, hopping into the car.

“We’ll be there.” I drive off and out of the parking lot, zooming down the road to my house.

Where my mom is probably passed out and my dad is working late...again.

I park in the driveway and stroll through the front door and into the foyer.

I toss my converse to the side and tip-toe into the kitchen in search of food. “Why hello young lady-“

“AH!” I shriek loudly at the top of my lungs as my mom startles me. “Jesus mom-!”

“Why aren’t you in school?”

She asks authoritatively and I grab strawberries from the fridge with a shaky pair of hands. “I was hungry.”

“School food sucks that bad?” I give her a deadpan gaze and plop into a wooden dining chair.

“Pizza looks a hundred days old.” I dryly reply and pop a piece of fruit in my mouth.

“Well make sure to do your homework and go to Bree’s house. Her mom called and told me she wanted you over for dinner.”

Briana’s mom is so kind to me for no reason and for some reason always has been.

Ever since we met, she's been like a second mother for me to go to when I'm alone.

Additionally, she helped me back when I was in primary school and junior high, which was terrible.

My parents were constantly working and inventing new and innovative ideas for the family business.

Now, my parents are around a lot more and spilt their COO and CEO abilities amongst the team.

I'm very grateful for it because I cherish every moment we spend together, which is very timely.

“Alright, I'll make sure to give her a call when I'm done.”

I scarf down the container of strawberries in one bite and wash my bowl out in the sink.

“I love you!” My mother says as I head up the stairs in a hurry and disperse to my room.”

“Yup. I love you too.” I shut my door and decide to take a hot shower before Briana’s tournament.

I’m both tense and exhausted from today and it’s only Monday.

I pull my tank top over my head and hastily slip my jeans off, throwing them on my bed.

Ugh, how am I gonna survive this week?
