CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE: YOU CAN’T DO WHATEVER YOU WANT


Kent

‘Creep. I don’t know what got in my mind that day to do that……but seriously I was relieved that they didn’t do it. Damn that girl could be so stupid. *Sigh. *’

They are still seeing each other but when I see her, she has an unreadable look etched on her face. I can’t decipher her thoughts. Minutes later Vex would come out of the room, looking a bit disappointed.

‘I guess the girl’s being smart now.’

But things were uncertain, one day she came out of a room, scampering and grinning.

‘Nope. She’s still stupid…don’t tell me she fell for his words? *Sigh. *’

Vex went out of the room, half disappointed, half victorious. I guess he managed to keep her without getting in to her pants…for now.

“Hey.” He said when he noticed me, he is smiling smugly.

‘Creep.’

“What’s up?” I faked a smile.

“Nothing, just hanging around.” He said.

I just nodded and lift myself from leaning the wall.

He started to walk pass by me.

‘Would I let it pass? No, I don’t think so.’

“Vex.” I called at him, and he looked back. I tucked my hands in my pocket. Control.

“Quit it.”

“Huh?” He said tilting a bit his head on one side.

“Quit it before she knows it.” I said adamantly but he just smiled. I clenched my fist in my pocket.

“So, you know.” He quipped.

“Yes, and so quit it.”

“Why, do you like her?” He snapped.

“No.”

“So, why do you care?” He asked with a smug smile.

“She’s not just some random girl that you can toy with. Do you realize how painful will it be to her if she knows about it?”

“I don’t care about it. I’m still enjoying.” He said, smirking.

I took my hands out of my pocket and I clenched my fist tight.

“Whoa. Calm down, man. If we’ll have a trouble here, that might blow up our secret and she’s going to be in trouble too. You wouldn’t want that right?” He retorted, smiling at his weaseled triumph.

“You don’t really like her, do you?” I asked trying to gain control.

“Touché.” He said and walked out.

’The Hell I should’ve kicked that jerk’s ass if only that girl won’t be in a trouble…Such pain in the ass. Why am I doing this again? Yeah…Got it, because I know her family and they are so kind and I just want to help her… so kind Kent…what now? Fuck!’

The next day, I caught her alone in the rooftop. I came in and she didn’t notice me.

“Why are you here?” I asked feigning innocence and that made her jumpy.

“H-huh? N-nothing.” She stuttered and stated walking out.

“Was he here?” I asked turning around to look at the edge of the building and I heard her stopped walking.

“What are you talking about?” She asked, acting innocent.

“You know what I mean and who I pertain to.” I said adamantly.

“I don’t know what you are saying.” She said turning to me.

“Don’t act like you don’t know.” I said as I turn and walk in front of her—staring straight on her eyes and her brows furrowed.

“I—I really don’t…”

“Vex was here…you two are making out.” I cut in and it stunned her. Her eyes widen in surprise.

“H-How did you know?” She stuttered.

“I just knew it all along. I see you two come in some rooms, I am not stupid not to know it. You two are noticeable. Not so careful, I might say.” I said and she’s just quiet. I know she is getting scared now.

“Stop it now before it’s too late.” I suggested and I saw her snaps out of the idea.

“No, I won’t. If you knew it why not tell the Admin.?” She said.

‘Whatta guts…’

“Do you know what you’re talking about? You’ll be in trouble if they’ll know.” I said and she smirked.

“Why do you care? …Oh, yeah maybe you just want to keep this to play with me and or with Sir Vex.” She said.

‘Fuck, why would I do that? He’s the one playing you STUPID.’

“I don’t need a crap to play with you and that’s not my kind of business.”

“If it’s not your kind of business why are you telling me to stop?”

“Just stop it!” I said.

“I won’t.” She said firmly.

‘She’s ONE FREAKING STUBBORN GIRL!!!!’

She started walking away from me, and I know I am losing it. ‘The fuck!’

“Do you really think he likes you?”

“Don’t use psychology with me…I am not stupid.”

“You’re being stupid to him now. And I don’t understand how long you will be stupid for him.” I said and she turned to me, glaring at me.

“Don’t taunt me JERK!” She shouted at me.

“So, stop it!”

“I won’t.”

“I said stop it.”

“I won’t stop! We like each other and I don’t care about you!” She shouted at me, her face reddening.

I too am getting mad with this girl. I ran my hands through my hair.

“Damn Jadyn! Why don’t you listen to me?” I screamed on her.

“And why don’t you just leave us alone?! You don’t know anything!” She shouted back at me.

“I know everything! He’s….” I trailed off.

‘Hell! I can’t tell it to her she’s just head over heels about him and she might think I am just making story to make her leave him. This suck!’

I just let out a frustrated groan and ran my fingers through my hair.

“What? Tell me!” She demanded.

“Just stop it Jadyn.” I said with my calmest voice that I could manage.

“No!” She said.

“Okay.” I said walking near her.

‘I surrender she’s really stubborn.’

“But don’t blame me if you’ll feel like a SLUT if you’ll know about it.” I said and swiftly, her hand landed on my left cheek; it stung and I cupped my cheek looking back at her.

“I AM NOT A SLUT!” She said and ran out.

‘Bullshit she just pulled the last string of my patience!’

Jadyn

“I need to go now.” He said, leaving me still longing for him.

“Okay…hmm.”

“What?”

“Can I know why?”

“Important matters.” He said and he went out immediately.

‘This is the second time he left me after getting a message from his phone…The first time was when he left me in the rooftop….’

‘And Professor Hanely came with all his guts to make me stop seeing him…why? I don’t know but what I know is that the Jackass called me a slut! Hell, to him!!!’

I went out of the room and saw well, the usual act…it’s becoming more a common scene now, Cristel is flirting with Professor Hanely but as always, he turns her down and she keep on following him.

‘Now, that’s a slut! Not me. Heck.’

Professor Hanley and I caught stares and I just glared at him while he just raised an eyebrow. Then, Cristel came over and gave me her best ever shitty look so I turn on my heels and left the freaks alone.
