Chapter 3 - The hallway incident

I’m not the most popular person at school, yes I'm rich but after the accident, my ex-best friend used the accident as a way to bully me. Really I only have two friends, I pull up to the school in my jeep and right away I see my friends; Ivy and Drew. I hopped out of my car and walked up to them.

“Hey, guys, what's up?” I ask.

“Nothing much, just talking about the family and baby project unit,” Drew said as we walk into school.

“Are you excited about it?” Ivy asks while walking down the hall towards my locker; they already have their stuff.

“Yeah as long as I don’t have to be partnered with any of the guys (teacher partners us with the opposite sex) from the popular group,” I say as I stop to open my locker.

I grab my stuff and shut my locker turning to look at my friends, “We need to get to class.” I say.

My friends and I go to our separate ways scene we don’t have first period together. I start to head towards my class when someone bumped into me causing me to drop my books.

“Oops, I’m sorry,” she says, her voice dripping with sarcasm.

I look up at Rachel and her friends (my old friends; god they're so fake *insert eye roll*), and I notice asher and his friends coming over. I hastily gather my books and walk past her making sure my shoulder hits hers and I say “whatever!”

I walk past asher but I don’t need to look up to know that he’s smirking at me. God his ego, ugg!


Lunchtime finally rolls around and I am sitting at a table with my two best and only friends; Ivy and Drew. I feel someone watching me so I take a look around and sure enough someone is. But it’s not just someone, I look around and meet Asher’s eyes.

His eyes are a crystal blue, they look almost familiar but I push that thought away. His eyes look even sharper because of his naturally dark brown almost black hair. I must admit that he is good looking, I mean this morning when I saw him in a towel I may have noticed that he had a very prominent v-line. I quickly look away, feeling myself blush again.

I get up to excuse myself and make my way out into the hall. I make it halfway to the washroom when I felt a hand wrap around my wrist.

“That was quite a show this morning.” his voice whispered into my ear, I knew that he was close behind me by the way I can feel his breath against my neck.

My breath hitched in my throat and I felt my cheeks burn a crimson red.

“Not so bad yourself,” I said trying to keep my voice steady, though I'm not sure how good a job I'm doing at that.

“Oh, so you liked what you saw?”He stated in a way that you could almost see the smirk in his voice. I blushed even harder, although I walked into that one.

I finally decided to turn around and face him. I turned around only to come inches away from his face. No more like centimeters.

“W-what do you want?” I ask scorning myself for stuttering.

“ what I want is-” He started but right then the bell had rung, cutting him off.

I use this distraction to get out of his grip and I quickly head towards my locker to get my stuff for the next class, which is 5th period.
