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 while she throws her arms around me.

I roll my eyes and kick my feet up on the lunch table; throwing my hair over my shoulder.

“Where in the hell have you guys been?” I grit my teeth in annoyance.

Jessica clicks her tongue at me with irritation noticeable in her eyes.

Jess’s lengthy black hair whooshes from the force of the wind slamming the double doors open.

As if taking the door off its hinges would increase it’s dramatic irrelevance.

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

Christina saunters her way over to us in a pair of slim skinny jeans and a maroon v-cut sweater.

She plops into the seat right next to me as I pinch the bridge of my nose and sigh.

“It wouldn’t be the first and certainly not the last.” I uttered in a melancholic voice.

Jess just shook her head, which was peeved to say the least and rested her chin on her forearms.

Meanwhile Chris and Jess sat here like two bumps on a log, I pulled my ombré hair from inside my leather jacket and chewed on a piece of gum.

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

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

Amber makes her entrance by trying to imitate the way her teacher uses his tongue.

She looks so stupid with her lips pressed together while 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 some shit like that.”

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

“Probably just another wanna be man-whore trying to get laid.” I dryly spoke up.

Jess snorted on her coffee in mid-swallow meanwhile Chris tried to coax Bree 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!”

Bree slings her arms around my shoulders; tugging Jess and me into a sweaty bear hug.

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

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

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

I may be the baddest bitch 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 dig my hands into the back pockets of my jeans.

“I have a test coming up.”

I shrugged my shoulders covered by a baby pink spaghetti-strapped 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.”

Chris opened her mouth to say something when the biggest asshole on-campus strolls her way over to 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 your legs so you can't walk anymore.”

Vanessa or ‘Barbie’ as we show affectionately call her demanded with venom clear in her tone.

“Barbie I can hangout 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.”

They height of my figure allowed me to tower over her and blankly stare at her.

For a moment her face faltered and I caught a hint of fear forming in those chestnut eyes.

Then each of Vanessa’s features lit up with rage and her caked foundation creases along the lines of her forehead. Excuse me?”

I clenched my teeth together from the squeaky pitch of her voice. “Your fucking excused.”

I bitterly mutter with a blank face and start walking in the opposite direction.

I have zero time to deal with this hoes bullshit. She’s literally slept with everyone in this damn school.

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

As her face heats with apparent rage I swiftly turn around and flip her my middle finger.

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

I brush past her; slamming into her shoulder and straighten my leather jacket.

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

I shrug it off because honestly it’s no big deal. “That bitch is annoying. My ears bled from her voice.”

While Bree pretends to faint; causing me to laugh Chris pulls her phone out and messages someone.

“I’m gonna go ask Bryan for his sister’s number.”

She mumbles while walking away, but all four of us turn our heads in her direction.

“What?”

Chris gawks at us in confusion as we assume a position with our hands on are hips.

“You wanna get laid.”

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

“Bye hoes, see you tomorrow.” She yells and flips us the bird on her way out.

I break into a band of laughter and smile.

God I love that girl...

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

Ah, that reminds me, I may have accidentally forgotten her last fight and been paying for it ever since.

“You gonna kick Natalia’s ass again?” Amber snorts; looking at her phone screen.

“When have I not?” Bree flaunts. I roll my eyes into my skull and straighten my black leather jacket.

“I’ll be there.” Amber says. I wave them off. “Call me when you come to my house. See you then.”

Jess nods at me and I walk into the parking lot to my white Ferrari. “Yo Becca wait up!” Max yells.

His muscular frame coming into view with his shaggy dirty blonde hair. “Sup.” I grin.

“I came to give you your notebook back.” He smiles. “Thanks.”

I put the key in the ignition and let the car roar to life. “Hey...I was wondering...”

Max rubs the back of his neck nervously.

Please no...

“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.”

He spills so fast my head spins. “Uh yeah when is it?” I ask. “This weekend after the frat party.” He says.

“The one your brother Jas is holding?” Max’s older brother Jasper loves to party. “Yeah.” He says.

“We’ll be there.” I smile and hop into the car.

I press start and drive off and out of the parking lot and make my way to my house where my mom is probably passed out and my dad is working late...again.

I park in our driveway and walk through the front door.

I throw my white converse off and tip toe into the kitchen in search of food.

“Why hello young lady.” My mom startles me and I scream to the top of my lungs.

“Jesus mom!” I hold my pounding heart in my hand. “Why aren’t you in school?” She asks authoritatively.

I grab a handful of strawberries from the fridge. “I was hungry.” I respond nonchalantly.

“School food sucks that bad?” She snorts.

I give her a deadpan look and plop down into a wooden dining chair.

“Pizza looks a hundred days old.” I smirk 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.”

Bree’s mom is so kind to me for no reason. “Alrighty.” I scarf down my food and wash my plate.

“I love you.” She says as I go upstairs. “Yup.” I went up to my room and decided to take a hot shower.

I’m so tense from this exhausting day and it’s only Monday.

I pull my white crop top over my head and slip my shorts off, throwing them onto my burgundy bed.

Ugh how am I gonna survive this week?

Madhumitha: What a Cliffhanger? I am waiting for the update.

alexannism: Love the story. The only dislike I had was that Ashton was attached to Diandra prior to him knowing his feelings towards Charlotte. Good read for those who likes clean romance and a bit of drama. The comedic part was awesome though. Chloe and Charlotte they both funny.

Kendra: This was incredible, short and sweet, loved it

Joana Nascimento: Amazing, like always

Maria: I have read all the books and all I could say is AMAZING. I loved how the storyline progressed from one book to the other. I loved how you get immersed in the story and you go through all the highs and lows with the characters.
