Description

Image
Image

*First Name: Reader
*Last Name: James
*Nickname(s): Read
*Age: 18
*Birthday: (03/07)
*Gender: Female
*Relationship Status: Single and ready to mingle
*Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
*Crushes:
*Friends:
*Enemies:
*Appearance: Image
Hair Color: Rich brown
Eye Color: Ice-y Blue
Height: 5'8
Weight: 145 lbs
*Personality: Just as cold as her stare, Reader always exude strictness within her. Born as the only daughter and child of a power couple, she grew up in the presence of her nanny more than her parents who are usually out for a business trip, business meeting or prefer not to hear their young daughter cry and changed her diapers. They have money, so why not use it to deal with the mess right?

*Likes: Business, money, expensive wines, traveling, Warren Buffett, Dixie (her pet)
*Dislikes: incompetence and people not observing their deadlines and being late
*Hobbies: "Hobbies are for people who have nothing special to do- unless it's traveling."- Reader James.
*Skills: marketing, excellent persuasion
*Extra Curricular Activities: AP classes
*Clothing Style: classic and corporate- sometimes laid back and usually depends on the occasion
*Family: Daughter of Mogul Patrick James III to Andrea Louis James
*Brief History: She grew up believing that crying is not an option. That money can acquire you most of your desires and that depending on others is out of the question.
So after years of parental neglect and substituted with the form of expensive education, toys, and mostly anything she asks for (through her father's secretary and by texting her almost non existing mother) the result is an ice cold, independent, career oriented woman.

*Plans For After High School: Yale or Harvard
*Anything Else You Would Like To Mention? "What? You don't know who Reader James is?"

So begins...

Reader's footsteps heavily stomped along the thread mill as she punched in a message for her best friend. She wanted to go shopping after school and who's better than to invite Freya with her.

"Good morning Frey, see me before class. I need to go shopping :*"


After she has sent in the message, she started increasing the speed on the machine again as her speed increased as well.

It has been her habit to wake up extra early to do some morning exercise before school to keep in her shape. It is also the time of the day where her parent's secretaries note her of the things they need her to do for the family's business. Talk about morning stress. Her dog Dixie, a wired haired Jack Russell Terrier yapped as it played with her chew toy just a few feet away from Read. Glad that her pal had managed to drown Mark's, her father's assistant, voice as he one by one blab about her father's list for her. On the other hand, Rhoda, who happens to be Mark's girlfriend and her mother's assistant, typed replies in her laptop.

"Dixie!" Mark frustratingly exclaimed at her pet. It made her turn her head, something she rarely do when the two are around, and looked sternly at Mark. The sound of Rhoda's fingertips against the keyboard stopped as well. She decreased the speed on the machine until it came to a full halt and completely turned her body towards the two.

"I'm so sorry, it's just-," He tried to explain but Read has already made up her mind and blurted. "What? Just what?" Simple yet cold and degrading, Read's question was almost hair raising. She folded her arms across her chest and raised her eyebrow.

"But the mutt-" Mark tried to reason with her, but who in his crazy mind would reason with someone like Reader James?

"Shut it. It's either you leave now or I'll make sure that "mutt" is going to ruin you. Out!" She pointed at the exit and expected the two to be gone in three seconds.

This time, Rhoda tried to save their ass and said, "But your father and mother-"

"I don't care. Find a way to get my tasks done yourselves," She turned back to her work out and once again increased the speed of the machine, placed her headphones on and ran like a marathoner.

Of course the two should be very afraid, aside from Reader's wrath, their bosses' disappointing cold stares are much more difficult to deal with when they start explaining why Reader hasn't done a single thing they asked her too. And the only way to escape is to do the tasks their selves even if it meant impossible.

"But I'm bringing the Benz, I'll just go catch you at school. See you in English."


She replied at Freya's message, she had to pick something before going to school anyway. As soon as she finished her morning workout, she consumed her water and headed towards her room with Dixie in tow. Before heading for a bath, she walked into her closet and decided to wear a floral number.

____

She had dropped off something on the way to school and an hour after she was parking her car into the spot that was kind of reserved for her, exactly next to Freya's spot. It wasn't an official thing but most of the people in their school kind of "respected" that it is her and Freya's parking spot. Unfortunately, it was close to Shane's as well. Her ex-boyfriend. They really didn't have a closure to say the least. It was more of a cold war between them. She stepped out of her Mercedes 300SL (W194 series), a gift she got for Sweet 16.

In a matter of minutes, she was strutting down the hall of the school as the heels of her shoes clacked with the marble flooring. She was headed towards her locker when she saw Shane hitting on a girl with a red hair. How tacky. She thought of her hair color. Unfortunately again, he was doing it very close to where her locker was situated- actually leaning at her locker door. She wasn't sure if he did it on purpose to make her spit fire or it was a coincedence but whatever his plans are- it was getting on her nerves. She over heard him inviting her for a party. Typical of him.

"Do you mind? Get a room. You're blocking my locker." She hastily said disrupting Shane's conversation with someone who was obviously new in BH. She must have not gotten the memo about colored hairs.

"You can bring your crack ass jokes somewhere Mr. Clifton. I have no time for this kind of things. You know what? I don't even know how I was able to put up with it," She replied with a snarky remark. Then like a teaser, her mind was suddenly flooded of her and Shane as their shared some intimate moments. The way she loved how he caressed her and made her feel like a princess.

Not now Reader! She silently blamed herself.

She tried to hide her embarrassment by bringing her face back to it's cold stare, "If you'll excuse me, I need my locker." Secretly she wished he would just stop pissing her off.

His smirk was back. As Shane walks around her he says " If i recall correctly, you loved my jokes amongst other things..." Then he continues on to the locker next to Analise. " So what do you say? will you come?" He asks his best puppy dog eyes in play. " It will make the whole party worth it..." Not to mention the after party if I play my cards right. he chuckles silghtly. His other twitch started to happen, his fingers. Shit, I forgot my meds this morning, thats why I'm so hyped up. Shane thinks.

Did I miss something? She thinks before she saids anything. She shrugs and smiles "Maybe,Guess you're just going to have to wait and find out." She saids before she looks at Reader as she starts to walk to her class. She seems nice. Wait I can't just walk away without saying anything.She saids as she stops and smiles

"Oh and one more thing,it was nice to meet you, Shane. See you around maybe." She saids as she countines to walk not looking back.

Maybe I should go. But I hate parties and the music always sucks but that was in New York not Berverly Hill. Hm She thinks as she walks in her art class.

Freya stood there for a moments after he had scarpered, a little stunned at what had just happened, letting out a little sigh she shook her head and gathered her stuff, luckily it wasn't a long walk back to her house. Once she arrived Freya quickly opened the garage putting her board back in before rushing inside, passing the kitchen she saw her dad and brother at at the table "Morning daddy" she greeted with a kiss on his cheek before grabbing a glass of Orange. "Morning pumpkin" he replied with a smile at his daughter.

Andy cleared his throat making Freya roll her eyes before placing a kiss on his cheek also "Morning to you too Andy" she smiled "Do you want a lift to school?" she asked, grabbing an apple from the fruit bowl.

Andy nodded "Yeah considering my cars still in the shop" he said with a hint of sarcasm, considering it was still in the garage, broken. Frank let out a chuckle "I promise you I'll take it to the garage on my day off tomorrow, but right now I've got to go to work" he said standing up and putting his blazer on, he have his daughter a hug and a kiss before annoyingly messing his sons hair "Right I love you both and I'll see you tonight" he smiled as he walked out the door.

Freya jumped up quickly from the seat when she caught sight of the time "shit, right I'm gonna get ready, I won't be long" she said grabbing her bag and running up the stairs to her bedroom. Closing the door behind her Freya quickly hurried into the bathroom to turn on the shower and returned in a white fluffy towel, grabbing her phone she read the text from Reader..

Okay, I'll see you at school then xx


After making sure the salt water was completely out of her with plenty of shampoo and conditioner, Freya quickly dried herself off and put on some matching underwear, walking into her closet she took about five minutes to choose her outfit. She then proceeded to blow dry and style her long hair into light curls which fell to the crook of her back and then applied her makeup, nothing too fancy, just a bit of foundation, powder, eyeliner, mascara and a pink lip gloss. Once she was satisfied with her appearance, Freya grabbed her school bag and hurried down stairs, grabbing her keys from the counter top "You ready?" she asked her brother.

Nodding Andy stood up, grabbing his bag and the pair walked out of the house towards Freya's car. Driving, it took about twenty minutes to get to school and when they arrived, the car park was heaving, spotting Readers car she saw her space next to her and parked up, getting out the pair looked around, Andy instantly spotting his 'Jock' friends and hurried over.

"Your Welcome!" Freya shouted after him sarcastically, shaking her head she wandered into the school people greeting her as she went, unlike Reader she actually did acknowledge them. It wasn't long until she spotted Shane and Reader talking by the lockers, with a role of her eye she walked over, wrapping her arms around Shane's neck excited to see him, it had been a few weeks, sure he was Readers ex but she had known Shane a very long time and considered him one of her best friends "I've missed you!" she said happily, "hey Read" she smiled giving her other best friend a hug.

"You two behaving yourself?" She asked with a smirk.

Shanes smirk grew even bigger " It was nice to meet you too. See you around" He says. Then his eyes fell back on the ice queen. He walks over to her. " Now seriously how was your summer?" He asks " Did you miss me?" Because I sure as hell missed you. he thinks. " Oh and you of corse being BH royalty are invited to my first party of the year."


When someone puts their arms aroud his neck. Ah automadily knows woh it is. " Analise, How great it is to see you. I was just telling Reader that she should come to my party tonight. You should come too."

Freya looked between Reader and Shane, Why couldn't they just make up, they're perfect for each other! She thought to herself, both Primma donnas, filthy rich and self absorbed, yet she meant that in the nicest possible way, after all they were her best friends. "Wouldn't miss it for the world" she smiled, it was true his parties were legendary around BH , looking at Reader she answered for her "We'll both be there" she stated firmly.

"Now seriously how was your summer?" Shane asked, somehow the sincerity in his voiced shocked Read. And as if it wasn't enough, he had to rub salt on the wound and followed it with another question " Did you miss me?"

"Very fine without you around, no thanks to you." She once again put up the wall between them with a sarcastic remark and continued, "Dream on Shane. Dropping you was one of the best things I've done in my life."

Thinking that she was winning the round he seemed unfazed by her wrath, he proceeded to ask her, "Oh and you of corse being BH royalty are invited to my first party of the year."

"Oh come on, you really expected me to-" She was cut short when her best friend, Freya, arrived and instantly wrapped her arm around Shane like it's the most casual thing to do. Of course she can, they've known each other like since forever.

"Freya, How great it is to see you. I was just telling Reader that she should come to my party tonight. You should come too." He then turned to her and invited her as well.

And like the great friend that she is (besides the very obvious way she wanted her and Shane to be back together) she replied, "Wouldn't miss it for the world" she smiled even when Read widened her eyes and gave her best friend a "NO!" look. "We'll both be there" she stated firmly instead, causing Read's forehead to crease.

And even before she could say that she won't be coming Shane had already pipped in and said, " Fantasic, oh and tell your friends! The more the merryer." And with that he left the two girls by Reader's locker.

"What? Why? You know how I can stand that jerk!" Read complained as she pulled out a notebook, one is enough for the first day of school- just enough for her to jot down the important things she needs to do for the start of the school. She then slammed her locker door a bit too hard than the usual. "Come on Frey, let's just be somewhere else than to go to that party." She pouted her lower lip as if pleading her best friend.

"Oh and by the way, got my ATM again. I need to re stock my closet with new clothes for this season and for next season- just in case I find something cute," The thought of shopping made her smile through the shiznik Shane had caused her.

Reader gave Freya a nod and a smile as an answer as she headed off towards her first class. English where the chirpy Ms. Lancaster teached. She hates how she seems to be in such a good mood everyday, but of course she can't say it out loud and get a failing grade. So what she does is to fake an equally radiant smile and pretend to be chummy with her to get what she wanted. An A or an A+.

"Good morning Read! It was nice to see you again darling. How was your summer?" She was welcomed by the ever so early Ms. Lancaster.

"It was actually great. We went to Europe and had a stop at Bath, England and went to the their world famous spas," She faked her a smile and narrated one of the things she did over the break. Of course, a lot of other students heard her even if the reply were for the teacher's ears only. A lot of them jealously eavesdropped about how one of BH's princess spent her summer.

"Isn't that a great trip. In fact, we will be starting with English literature for this term. Now if everyone could just distribute this photocopied papers so everyone can read," She then handed everyone pieces of paper with some literature in it.

Why couldnt' Freya be in the same class as her in the morning, it would have helped her through the boredom she's suffering.

(Anyone wants to be in her class? LOL!)

Read instantly punched a text message for Frey, this class is insanely boring her to death.

Love, Kill me now. Lanky thinks we're best friends. Augh. xo Read


She was sending in the message when a familiar girl walked close to her and said, "Hey, Sorry about your locker but anyways i'm Analise. And you are?"
But apparently this girl haven't fully realized who Reader is just yet- and how she reacts to "strangers". She gave the girl a raised left eyebrow and was about to not mind her (and wish she would leave her alone) when she spoke once again. "Oh, I love your dress by the way."

Reader was left nothing to do but sarcastically reply with, "Uhhh- sure. Thanks." She paused and continued, not bothering whether she'll humiliate the new girl and said, "Do I know you?". Other students whispered, some saying that the girl was committing social suicide by approaching her, some betting that the girl would soon run away crying (like the usual) while some where snickering at how the girl with the red hair was so brave to even approach her.

Reader always had that kind of reputation. Just like what Shane said earlier, people know her as the Ice Queen. She doesn't care one bit about how other people thinks about her. They hate her because they love to be her.

"Look, I was trying to be nice. Don't have to be such a bitch about it."

The girl with the red hair exclaimed at Reader. She expected it already, knowing that the new girl has some guts in her. But Read played it calm. She decided to look down at her phone when Freya replied to her message and already cooking up some mean revenge on the girl who just called her bitch. She scribbled something on a piece of paper, she folded the paper with a mischievous smile on her face. Even a stupid person knows Reader James is up to something- something evil.

As of now, the people in the class has realized that the Red Headed Girl is in deep trouble for standing up to her. They moved their seats away from the Red Headed girl's chair, as if she had cooties.

She tapped the guy's shoulders in front of her with her pointer and middle finger gracefully and handed him the paper as if she was asking him to run an errand. The guy- obviously flattered that Reader had chosen her for the certain task- had a huge awkward smile as he opened the paper and read it. He gave her an excited nod and whispered to his friends.

Operation Bring down the Red Headed Girl is on!

The group of guys went snickering as they planned on the move.

Sorry Red Riding Hood, the big bag wolf is much fiercer than you thought she'd be. Reader thought and continued to take down notes for the rest of the class. Her minions (the name she refers to the people who are more than happy to do things for her) are planning there attack. Poor girl.

The boys slowly did their mischief as Lancaster continued to babble by the blackboard. One by one, they filled the girl's bag (which happens to be on another chair, beside her) with hair gel, glue and crumpled tissue paper. It won't be long till she realized that she's in "deep" trouble.

No one can really put the blame on Reader. She was, after all, 5 seats away from her. And the rest of the class know better than to tattle tale on her.

The bell rang. The signal for the end of the class and the start of the nightmare for the girl who called herself Analise.

Reader calmly collected her things. Stood up and headed towards the exit. She didn't bother to witness what will happen to Analise, the other's have already prepared their phones to capture the experience.

A few minutes after she headed to her next class, she walked the hallway still with the mischievous smile on her face as the student body tried their best to get out of her way. She can't wait for lunch and get updated with Frey. This school year was after all- going to be- exciting!

She sees everyone move away from her desk. All she does is play it cool and crack her neck and read her book, Mocking Jay. She sees someone move close to her bag. She looks at him with a raised eyebrow. "What the hell are you doing?" She saids in a hushed tone not wanting the teacher to hear. She swats him away and moves her bag to the floor not knowing anything was in there.

Once the bell rings she streches her back and gets her paint stained binder from the table so she can put it away. She puts her binder in her backpack before feeling something gooey in her bag. "What the fuck?" She whispers as she sees the glue,hair gel and tissue paper. She looks at her messy hand shakes most of it off on to the floor. She walks out the room and sees, shelooks at Reader, smiles and flicks her off. That lil bitch. You wanna play. Bring it! She thinks as she grabs her bag and walks out the door not showing any emotion.

She rolls her eyes and goes by a trash can. "Really?, Real mature. Dumb Beverly Hills, filled with fake people who don't have the balls to say stuff to your face. No they have to go behind your back." She saids as she grabs her skechbook,iphone,and headpones. She throws everything else in the garbage.

She walks to her art class think of what she should do. Be the mature one or do something? Hm, WWANYD? what would a New Yorker do? She thinks with an devilious grin on her face as she messes with her purple painted nails.

She walks in to her art class, She puts on her black headphones and let the music start blasting in her ears as she listens to the band 'A Day To Remember'. She takes a seat and starts to paint using all the messed up colors making them look beautiful and normal.

Where are you? Lunch- I'm starving. And we're having the next class together remember? I can't wait to get out of here xo Read


Reader typed in carelessly unto her phone as she sent the message to Frey. It was barely half of the day and she's starting to feel bored and irritated. The day passed by and now it was lunch time. She was mad hungry and it is one of the reasons for her bad mood. She directly walked towards their lunch table, and like other things it was specially "reserved" for them.

She was about to call Frey (out of impatience because her best friend still hasn't replied to her message) when she saw Frey talking to another girl. Reader had to admit that the girl looked pretty but dressed weirdly. Like she was pulled out of That 70's Show. And being her usual self, Reader is mostly selfish of things that belong to her- including her best friend.

Reader quickly pushed her chair away and stood up. Went directly towards Freya and spoke, "Frey, I've been texting you." Totally ignoring the new girl she linked her left arm to Frey's right arm. "I'm starving. What should I get?" She wondered out loudly, hoping that Freya wouldn't be here usual self and invite the new girl to have lunch with them.

She couldn't quite understand her best friends sometimes. She seems to be friendly with a lot of people- and that annoys Reader.

"Frey, I've been texting you." Readers voice stopped her and Rivers conversation "hey Read" she smiled "Sorry babe was talking to River. Reader this is River, River, Reader" she smiled introducing the two, knowing instantly this was a bad idea, Reader didn't exactly get along with new people.

Freya smiled kindly at River, silently apologising in advance if her best friend says anything insulting or mean, because lets face it this was Reader so that was bound to happen. "Oh I'm starving too! Could just eat a chicken burger or something" she mentally craved as her stomach rumbled "oh River you should join us! I wouldn't have you sitting by yourself!" she stated, however judging by the look on Readers face she had asked the wrong thing.

"oh River you should join us! I wouldn't have you sitting by yourself!" Freya's words started ringing in her ears. She had dreaded this a minute ago and somehow Freya still insisted. She tried to give her best fake smile and nodded towards the girl named River. "Yeah, you should totally join us." If Read was in a movie she could have won a best actress award for it.

"I'm having a salad and some chicken fingers, chicken burger sounds great but it'll be too heavy on the stomach." Reader shared hoping that River would notice that she's Freya's best friend and that no one should take her place.

(OOC: I've edited my character a little bit, just a heads up :)

"Yeah, you should totally join us." Freya shook her head at her friends sarcastic comment and shot her a be nice look "You worry way too much about you eat Read, you look great" she laughed lightly as the three headed towards the food counter, grabbing a tray, Freya grabbed a diet coke and a chicken burger with a few sashes of mayo to go with it, she paid and took a seat at their usual table "So River has just moved here from San Francisco" Freya explained as she sipped on her drink.

Hearing her phone ring, Freya pulled it out of her bag "Hello?" she said pressing one hand against her other ear to block out the background noise "Andy? What-I can't hear you, hold on" she said standing up "I won't be a second" she to the girls before hurrying out of the cafeteria to the quieter courtyard "Hey that's better, whats up?" she asked her brother.

"You getting lunch?" he asked getting straight to the point.

Freya laughed "I swear your like a bottomless pit when it comes to food Andy, but yes I'm in the cafeteria" she said leaning back against a pillar.

"Sweet. I'll be there in a bit" he said "bye."

"Yeah see ya." Freya replied putting her phone back into her bag, looking up she saw Scott and a blonde girl she thought to be Tessa talking on a bench, with a sigh she shook her head, she could help but feel disappointed and slightly sad, they never fell for her, it was either Reader or some other pretty girl, but never herself. Turning quickly she hurried back inside to the cafeteria forcing a smile onto her face, "Hey, sorry about that, Andy's on his way" she said sitting back down.

Read gave her best friend a look as if saying "Okay. I'll behave" and a sweet smile like a child caught being mischievous and tries to get off a punishment. She followed her towards the line when she commented about her food choices, "You worry way too much about you eat Read, you look great" At which she pouted her lip in a playful way and replied, "I have to. If no one looks after me no one will." Which was basically true. Of course she can always afford any hospital bill even if it's in Paris but aside from the doctors and the nurses only Freya comes to visit her when she's admitted. Her parents excuse- she'll get better anyway. They can't afford getting sick themselves if they visit her in a germ infested place like a hospital.

"So River has just moved here from San Francisco" Frey informed her. As if I could care less. Reader thought but her voice said the opposite, "That's great to hear. How do you like Beverly Hills so far?" Trying to sound as friendly as she can, Reader was actually intrigued about what the new girl thinks about her territory.

Just as they arrived and seated at their usual table, Frey excused herself and took a call. Leaving her with River in an awkward situation. But Reader knows better than to feel threatened by a new comer so she came up with a pretty naughty thing in her mind and asked River. "Are you like a hippie or something? Like do you only eat vegetables? What does your Mom and Dad do that you have to move to Beverly Hills? By the way, did you know that Freya and I have been best friends since forever? Nothing comes between us- and I hope nothing will. I don't know what I can do if someone tried to break our friendship. Only can only imagine." She knows she sounded stupid or arrogant but she wanted to make River feel that West Beverly Hills High is her kingdom and that she shouldn't even try to compete with Reader.

Freya then walked back to their table and announced, "Hey, sorry about that, Andy's on his way"

It immediately made Reader roll her eyes and say, "Andy? Can't he spend one day without bothering you? It's not like you don't see each other everyday." She complained as she munched on her salad, pushing away the croutons which she considers as bad for her diet. Of course Freya's brother is one hunky guy but she thinks he acts immaturely.

"Of course you do remember," Reader giggled and said in a matter as if saying "and now you have to pay me back". Just then one of her least favorite person came to join them for lunch and it was too late to refuse to have him over as her bestfriend and her brother had already agreed.

"Can't wait until tonight Shane", Frey mentioned. Looks like she does have to show up at Shane's party after all.

"Shane make sure it won't be a bore okay?" She gave Shane a quick look then returned her gaze to Andy, "Oh and Andy, mind if I speak with you in private? It'll be real quick. I promise," She gave him a sweet smile while she cooks up an evil plan underneath.

"Shane, behave. River isn't used to men like you," She teased, probably guessing right as well. Then pulled Andy away from their table.

Reader lead him towards a shaded table just outside the cafeteria. "Don't worry I won't ask you to do a death defying stunt." She assured him. "Besides, I just wanted you to meet a new girl. She's fun but doesn't want to have any strings attached. She just wants to play around, you like that kind of thing right?" Read explained, thinking of Analise as she talked to Andy.

"Can't say I'm against the whole friends with benefits situation" he chuckled lightly before his face turned serious again

"Of course you won't," Reader teased and played with a part of loose hair flirtatiously.

"oh come on Reader i know you too well what did you really want me to do with this girl?" He asked feeling slightly sorry for the poor soul who had made an enemy of Reader James.

She faked a surprised gasp and a hurt look before saying, "Ouch! Can't I- Reader James- be friendly enough to actually make someone feel welcome? Besides I really want to be friends with her. I really do," She looked into Andy's eyes and did her best to act truthfully. "I've talked to her and as much as I hate to admit it, I've seen what's inside her rather than looking at her outer shell." She jumped off her seat and acted excited while she held his left hand with both of her hands and swayed it. Looking at Andy, she

"Please say yes, it'll be a great change for her. The makeover can always come after," Reader laid out her supposed "plans"

Just then an announcement started blaring from the speakers. The voice of the student announcer filled the school as everyone started hushing down to listen to the announcement.

"Good afternoon West Beverly. The sign up for the annual school educational trip is now open. This year the destination would be a week in the beautiful island of Hawaii. A breakdown of expenses would be available in the student government office upon request."

The announcement sent everyone into an excited rush as friends and classmates started whispering to each other. But somehow excitement never reached Reader.

"And there's more! Students who want to join in but can't afford the trip can win a chance for an all expense paid trip via raffle. The mechanics will be also available in the student government office and would be strictly for those who can't afford it. That's it for today and have a good day," The announcer finished.

And in a blink of an eye a lot of students rushed towards the sign up area. Almost deserting the cafeteria. Those who were left are either not interested or are confident enough that they can afford the trip without any fuss. Just like Reader and her friends.

"So what do you say? Will you help me with my friend?" She cupped Andrew's face with her hands and gave him a flirtatious smile, returning his attention back to her.

"Fuck Reader" he cursed "Fine. But this is it, after this were even."

She just got her game back. Then decided to tease Andrew a bit more, "Hey are actually cursing or want to take me to bed-" She then leaned towards him and whispered sexily to his ear "Again?". She giggled naughtily. "Last time was fun though. I don't mind repeating it again." She gave him a playful wink and planted a small kiss on his lips before leaving him frustrated.

Reader walked back inside the cafeteria. Hippie girl- River was gone leaving her best friend and her ex boyfriend chatting over lunch. There were very few people left inside as she gazed around she accidentally spotted a guy eating alone in a hidden corner. He looked cute alright, Reader wondered why he was looking towards their direction, but then again a lot of people usually look towards their table.

"So Frey, we need to start shopping for the school trip." She beamed and took a sip of her Coke Zero and picked some of her carrot sticks.

Scott blushed at the statement made by the girl next to him. He wasn't used t this and besides he really likes her. What if she thinks he's gay and she just wants to be friends? YUP, Celenski! That must be it. She thinks I can be her one of her girl friends

"I don't think they like me," Scott admitted, referring to Reader's table. There was no use lying. The way they look at him, especially the girl, it was like they were ready to rip him apart. Not that he'd back down but he promised his aunt and uncle that he'd stay away from trouble. Besides, he clearly needs to get his life into a straight line for his mom and his sister.

"Anyway yeah, was thinking about the draw, but I'm not sure if I can have a week away from my jobs." He shared. "How about you? I bet the waves in Hawaii would be more wicked than what we have her in Cali," He was referring to the early rendezvous he had with Freya at the beach this morning. He was determined to make her see him as a man.

The look in her eyes wanted to make Scott lock her in a warm embrace. She was clearly having a problem with her mother and all Scott wanted to do was to comfort her. And as he almost lost control of his self with his hand almost reaching for her small delicate face, the bell rang. Causing him to drop his arm back to his side and cleared his throat.

"Oh good, I have English as well." He reached for the school guide inside one of his notebooks and read, "That'll be in Wing C, room 201. Do you know where that is?" He asked, trying to lift the awkwardness away. He took his back pack and slinged it to his back as he stood up.

He is such a cowards sometimes but he knows he'll get in a lot of trouble if he pursues Freya, not with her best friend alone but probably with her side of the world. If she's having issues with her mother, Scott doesn't think having him as her boyfriend would help either.

Just then a voice interrupted his thoughts, "Frey, are we still going to the mall after school?"

The bell rang as Reader took a final sip of her water, she grabbed her things and gave Andy a kiss on the cheek and a glare towards Shane. She headed towards her best friend who was apparently busy with the new boy.

"Frey, are we still going to the mall after school?" She looked at her friend then towards Scott, eyeing him like he was a specimen under a microscope.

He was gorgeous alright. Reader lifted her right hand and offered him a hand shake, "You must be new, Reader James."
