Personality

Savvy, self-confident, and kind of a bad-ass. Ashley's unpredictable, and she gets a kick out of breaking rules, but there's one thing she's never reckless about - the people she loves. Once she cares about you, you'll become very familiar with her overprotective side.

Ashley put up a front that's sarcastic, tough, and a little bit bitter. She’s had to grow up fast and wears a tough exterior, but she’s not as jaded as she seems – she also has a soft very sensitive and loving side to her.

Although Ashley's sure to stick by you if you're in trouble, she'll probably push you away if things get rough for her. It’s usually an effort to protect her from pain. She might claim she wants to be alone to deal with personal stuff, but once you get to know her, you'll realize those are the times she needs your love and support the most.

Her life can be intense and unpredictable at times, but she’s determined to take control and figure out what really makes her truly happy.

Relationships

My dad is dead and my mother might as well be. Between all of my father's touring around the world I rarely ever saw him. Despite that somehow he was a better parent to me than my mother ever was. Although that's not saying a lot it does say something. What I can't be sure. I've had five stepdads .... wait .. make that six. Stepdad numero six and mommy dearest just tied the knot a week or so ago. So yeah that makes one dead dad, one gold digging whore, and stepdad number six. No pets. No siblings. That is my family."

Clique

"What clique would I just so happen to be in? Well as far as this whole school is concerned Ashley Daniels is an outcast. Not that it was always this way. I mean I use to among the populars but we all know how that tale goes. Long story short being one popular girl dates a popular guy. Popular girl's suppose to be best friend steals popular girl's guy in a scheme of backstabbing and sabotage. Popular girl becomes outcast and ex-bestie and ex-boyfriend live happily ever after. Now guess what part I played in that tragic tale."

After-School Activities

As of rite now the only club am in is the music club."

History

"I was born on February 14th on my dad's tour bus. Yeah he always loved telling me that story but I'll spare it. It was after my birth that my mom stopped touring around the world with my dad and she came to Manor Hill. I would like to say that having me turned her whole life around and made her all domesticated and such but that would be the biggest lie ever. The only reason that my mom abandoned the rock and roll scene is because my dad set her up in this lavish mansion that I still call my home. Honestly speaking I know that my mom resents me because I have "ruined her life" but hey I didn't ask to be here. She had options and in the end she opted to keep me. I'd probably be better off had gone with option two ... or three. At the end of the day it wasn't a dream come true for either of cause.

While me and my darling mother lived the luxurious life that having a rock star dad and husband allowed my dad neither stopped his rock and roll life. My dad rocker, Ralph Daniels was the lead singer of the rock group Purple Poison, and all while me and Christina were living in a mansion he was still touring around the world. He was doing drugs, sleeping with whatever crossed his path and was rarely home at all due to his constant touring with his band. By the time I turned the married was over and my parents were divorced. Not that I cared because by that time I was just so over the arguing and cheating and just all the drama in general that I welcomed there divorce. Not that the divorce really stopped them from fighting.

A month after my parents divorced my mom got married to stepdad number one. Which is what kicked started this wealthy parade of stepdads. The marriages never lasted long and always ended with my mom getting half of their earnings, Between that and child support you have to admit my mom was doing pretty well for a non-working socialite. With my father always touring and my mom opting to travel rather than raise me I've pretty much raised myself. I only got to see my father on special occasions such as my birthday and stuff and as I've gotten older the times I see my mother have dwindle drastically. Not that am complaining.

Anyways, speeding up time my father dead this summer. It was after one of our rare dinners between father and daughter and on the way going back to his hotel his car got into this really bad accident on the highway. Car explode. No survivors. He was just here one minute and gone the next. This summer has probably .... not it was the craziest summer I have ever lived in my life. Despite the roller coaster ride in the end I got a 20.5 million dollar inheritance out of it so I guess death isn't all dead. Downsize to it all is that I can't touch the money until am eighteen so am still stuck with my dear mother in the mean time. He left her nothing so of course she's in a bitch fit right now and trying to butter me up so when I hit the big one eight I'll cut her a piece of my money. Its not going to happen but who am I to crush her hopes.


Other

I do have a tattoo on my lower back. Tramp stamp I know and its illegal for minors but everything fun is so no surprise there. While I could afford to be driven around by my own personal chauffeur or drive over in some over expensive benz or something I prefer my jeep."

"Mickey I don't know where the hell you are but where ever you are whatever your doing get your ass to school now! I am so bored without you and you know how I get when I get bored." With a low sigh Aaliyah ended her voice-mail to her missing in action bestie and hit the end button on her iphone. Aaliyah would usually meet up with Mikaela at Starbucks before school because it's the only place Mikaela ever likes to have breakfast, but since this morning Mikaela seemed to be neglecting her phone Aaliyah ended up skipping breakfast all together. Eating breakfast alone just didn't seem as appealing as doing it with a friend.

Where Mikaela was Aaliyah no longer had the time to ponder over because first period was starting and she actually liked art. Enough to be on time for it instead of being her usually fashionably late self. She didn't need any of her real books for art so she shoved her entire bag into her locker. Looking at her reflection one last time in the mirror that she'd placed on the inside of the locker door she shut her locker. Walking through the halls as if it was her own personal runaway as she walked the people moved out of her way without her having to mutter a single word. People at Manor Hill High feared her and they also respected her. There was a good balance going on.

Tristan had been standing outside of Ashley's home for about ten minutes ringing the bell. Ashley had already missed the first week of school which Tristan gave her without a problem. However, there was no way in hell he was about to let her cut out the second week as well. Taking out his emergency key that she had given him a few years back he unlocked the front door and entered the mansion. Turning the lock back he headed up the marble staircase to the second level of the house and walked down the hall to Ashley's bedroom. Without so much as a knock he turned the knob and pushed opened the door entering the sleeping beauty's chambers.

He wasn't surprised to find her still asleep and chuckled to himself as he walked over to the bed. Taking off his shoes he leaped onto the bed landing on top of Ashley, "WAKE UP!" He yelled as he rolled onto the other side of the bed and stood up as he jumped up and down on the bed like a child on Christmas day waking up their parents. "GET UP! GET UP! GET UP!"

What the hell?! The bouncing up and down rhythm of her bed and the annoying loud voice of Tristan's was making it impossible to sleep. Ashley covered her face with her pillow "Go away!" her voice was muffled by the pillow not that it really mattered since she knew there was no chance he was going to stop till she got up. "GET UP! GET UP! GET UP!" As annoying as he was she had to admit Tristan sure as hell was persistent. With a loud groan of defeat Ashley threw her covering off of her as she looked at the five year old trapped in an eighteen year old body and couldn't help but laugh. "You have no idea how much I hate you right now!", she said as she rolled out of the bed. Grabbing her pillow she threw it aiming at his head. "Get off my bed you damn monkey! Also remind me to take that key back from you later."

Yawning as she made her way over into he dresser she grabbed her cell phone that was resting on top of it and turned it on to see the time. She wouldn't have time to eat breakfast today if she wanted to make to class on time. Lowly sighing she placed her phone back on top of the dresser and started rummaging through the drawers to find something to wear. She was far too tired to carry about what is was she was throwing on and was fully dressed and ready to go in ten minutes. "Lets go jockstrap! We both know I wouldn't want to be late.", the sarcasm in her voice was evident as she exited her room ahead of him.

Getting into her jeep she didn't wait for Tristan to get into his car to pull off. With the way Tristan drove it wasn't like she had to worry about him catching up. It was because he liked to drive like he was in some fast and the furious movie that even thought she didn't really feel like driving she was going to. The ride from her place to school wasn't a very long one and as she parked her car in the student parking lot she walked into school. She would be seeing Tristan next period so there was no reason for goodbyes as she went straight to music.

Mikaela was running extremely late today but that was not going to stop her morning Starbucks breakfast. She listened to Aaliyah's last voice-mail as waited for the worker to come back with her order. She laughed to herself as the message ended and stuck the phone back in her bag as the woman came back to the counter. "One sausage & cheddar sandwich, one spinach & feta wrap, a double chocolaty chip frappuccino blend and a strawberry & crème frappuccino blend. Will that be all?" Mikaela knew Aaliyah well enough to know that she would skip breakfast without her so she had gotten her breakfast. A starved Aaliyah was not one anyone wanted to be around. "Yeah that's all." Mikaela said with a smile as she handed the money to the cashier "Thanks. Keep the change." Taking the food and drinks Mikaela left the coffee house and went on her way to school.

By the time she got to school the first bell had already rung so she walked to class as quickly as she could without spilling the beverages. Getting to class she slipped in while the teacher was doing something on the board and took the empty seat next to Aaliyah. Fixing her clothes on her body she looked at her friend with an apologetic look, "I know am late don't kill me. I got you a wrap and your strawberry frappe." she said sliding Aaliyah her breakfast. "Ms.Taylor!" Mikaela was slightly startled by the teacher calling for her attention. "Yes." The teacher looked at her with a disapproving look "This is an art studio Ms.Taylor not the cafeteria." Mikaela nodded "Sorry. Late morning. Won't happen again. I promise." If it wasn't for the fact that Mikaela and Mrs.Stein were cool she would have made them throw out the food. With a small nodded Mrs.Stein went back to what she was doing as Mikaela looked at Aaliyah and just giggled as she started to unwrap her sandwich.

"You have no idea how much I hate you right now!" Tristan laughed aloud and respond back with "Pssh! You know you love me." He continued bouncing up and down on the bed as if it was trampoline. "Get off my bed you damn monkey! Also remind me to take that key back from you later." Tristan dodged the pillow that was thrown at his head and laughed as he did a back-flip off the bed, "No take backs!" he shouted as he picked up the pillow off the floor where it landed and placed it back on the bed.

He watched as Ashley made her way over to her dresser to pick out something to wear. "Am gonna go down to the kitchen. Brb.", he was starving and was praying that there was going to be something in the Daniels kitchen to he could stuff his face with. Leaving Ashley alone in the room he went down the marble stairs and walked through the empty hallway to the kitchen. Rummaging through the cabinets he found the snacks and grabbed a honey bun and a devil dog. Grabbing a bottle of water out of the fridge he headed back upstairs. Just cause Ashley was skipping breakfast didn't mean he was going to.

"Lets go jockstrap! We both know I wouldn't want to be late.", Tristan didn't even make it through the door before Ashley walked past him out the door. "Guess am snacking on the go." he said following behind the redhead. Locking the front door behind him he got in his car and took a couple minutes to scrafed down his nutritious breakfast. Once he was done he crumbled up the plastic wrappers and stuffed them in one of the empty cup holders being to lazy to throw it away. Pulling off the drive to the school was average and didn't take very long. After parking his car he took his bag out of the passenger seat and grabbed his garbage and entered the school. Throwing his trash into the first trash can he came across he walked to his locker saying a few hellos here and there to the people he came across. Tossing his bag into his locker he locked it back and semi jogged to workshop as he was running late.

"I know am late don't kill me. I got you a wrap and your strawberry frappe." Aaliyah smiled as Mikaela slide her morning breakfast towards her. She was glad that at least one of them had gone to Starbucks today. "Well, seeing as you did get me my faves I'll spare you. Just this once however so don't make it habit." Had she been saying these words to anybody else she probably would have meant it but this was Mikaela. So her words held no real threat as she began unwrapping her spinach & feta wrap. She was about to say something to Mikaela when the teacher opened her mouth. The look of annoyance on her face was clearly visible as she took a bite out of her wrap.

She didn't understand why their teacher was making such a big deal out of nothing. I mean so Mickey was a couple of minutes late for class it wasn't like this was one of the major classes. I mean for crying out loud they were in art and it was first period. Lighten the hell up. As Mrs.Stein went back to doing her job Aaliyah shook her head as she looked at Mikaela sipping on her strawberry beverage. Setting her drink down she looked at their art teacher and scoffed looking back at her friend "Remind me again why am in this class. I don't even like art." With a low sigh and a roll of her eyes she went back to eating as the teacher began talking about what their first project of the semester would be.

"Well, seeing as you did get me my faves I'll spare you. Just this once however so don't make it habit." Chortling at Aaliyah's words Mikaela was one of the few people in this school who had truly nothing to fear when it came to Aaliyah Jordan. Mikaela and Aaliyah had been friends since elementary so the way she saw it was if Aaliyah hadn't tried to destroy her already there was a good chance that she never would. "I'll be better. Te prometo." Taking a sip of her chocolate chip frappe she silently unwrapped her sandwich not wanting to draw Mrs.Stein's attention back to her.

The next couple of minutes went by in silence between the two girls as they ate their meals as the teacher started talking about the first project of the semester. Mikaela noticed Blair slip in undetected by the teacher. If only I could have managed to done that she thought to herself as she watched him grabbed something and walk over to their table. He didn't even seem to notice to the two girls at the table as he sat down and began working on what she expected was his latest project. Her eyes skimmed his work for a brief moment and she had to admit he was pretty good. "Remind me again why am in this class. I don't even like art." Aaliyah's voice drew her attention back and Mikaela just rolled her eyes. "You agreed to take art because you love me. Plus seeing as you can't cook us taking home ec together was out of the question." Mikaela added the last part with a low chuckle.

"Hey, ladies. I have a proposition." Mikaela looked at Blair with a suspicious look and perfectly trimmed raised brow, "Do you now?" Blair was trouble. That was well known throughout the halls of Manor Hill High and Mikaela wasn't interested in trouble. Grabbing her and Aaliyah's trash she got up from the table and went and to throw it out in the trash can by the door. When she returned Blair continued, "It entails a little photo shoot." A smile spread across his handsome face that made her nervous and wary although she didn't show it. "Thanks but no thanks.", was her simple reply as she turned her attention to teacher. "Would anyone like to pass these out?" Mikaela raised her head and giving the nodded okay she got up from the table and retrieved the papers off the teacher's desk and started handing them out one by one to the students.

Music class was Ashley's favorite class. Music was in her blood and she loved that she got to spend an entire period just listening to and playing music. The first week of class the teacher had had the class play the instruments of their choosing so he could get a feel for the talent of the class. Seeing as she had cut the entire first week of school she hadn't gotten to play for the teacher but fortunately for her Mr.Richard was not only her music teacher but he ran music club after school. So he was already aware of her musical talents.
Mr.Richard had already chosen a song for the class to learn that they would play together. Getting the sheet music Ashley grabbed a guitar and sat in the back of the room learning the chords.

Art class was fun for Agatha. Granted, the teacher was not great at explaining things, yet it did not deter from her joy at the subject and getting to make something pretty. She wasted no time in completing the project for the day before she overheard the conversation between Aaliyah, Mikaela, and Blair. She had to admit, she thought Blair was handsome, and somewhat funny. Aaliyah, of course, she figured could stand to not be so controlling. Agatha never bothered to say anything about it, however, opting to focus on her studies and family.

During class, she was so busy with a sketch she worked on in her spare time, she accidentally shoved her eraser away from her and off the desk. "Oops. Must've gotten a little carried away." Looking around, she asked herself, "Hmmm... where could it have gone?" Her question was immediately answered when one of the male classmates presented the lost item to her, which she gladly received back with a gentle smile and a sweet, "Thank you!" One of the other male classmates encourage the boy to go for it and ask her out, which made him awkward, but Agatha giggled and said, "Oh, don't worry about it! He's just being sweet, is all!"

Then, the bell rang. Picking up her things, she went out the door and made her way to the locker, which was next to Blair's. She waved to him politely before grabbing her books for Physics and walking to that class. Along the way, boys she walked past stopped to gaze at her without her noticing. Sure, Aaliyah may be feared and respected, yet there were still a great deal of boys that simply and secretly adored Agatha for more reasons than one. Her trim and simplistic beauty, her intelligence, her compassion, even the way she often manages to put a smile on people's faces draws the guys to her like a magnet. Ironically, she never figured that out, thinking they were simply being kind to her. Much gossip is about that whoever would win her heart would be a hero around school.

Halfway to her destination, her favorite relatives spotted her and began to walk alongside her, one on each side. Akira, naturally, asked if anyone was a bother to her, and she, as usual, answered to the negative in a happy mood. Once in the Physics classroom, Agatha sat at her usual spot up front, Akira right behind her to keep his eye on her in case anyone were to try anything disrespectful. Yoshio, naturally, decided to sit next to Kueng, giving him a wink as he did so.

From there, the music fanatic tapped the shoulder of Akira, directly in front of him, and said to his cousin, "Akira-kun, did you notice how Lily-chan is smitten by you?"

Akira raised an eye-brow. "You mean Lillian? No, no I haven't, Yoshio." His eyes squinting, he asked, "What are you getting at?"

Yoshio shrugged. "Well, I wouldn't want my little cousin to be all alone, now would I?" He playfully nudged Akira and added with a sly grin, "Come on! Step up to the plate! Give her a chance!"

"I'll think about it," was Akira's simple answer. He glanced over in Lillian's direction for a brief moment, then thought to himself as to how such a thing would work due to the fact he and Lillian barely knew each other, at the moment. Of course, he refocused his attention to his notes after a fraction of time.

Yoshio rolled his eyes. "You're hopeless, Akira-kun. You really are."

Meanwhile, Agatha glanced over at Blair for a moment, taking in his mischievous demeanor, and softly giggled to herself before reviewing her notes for the third time that day. She was always a book worm, not to mention a great athlete. It is difficult to find that combination. How she did it is a mystery to some people, but for her, it was simply time management.

Mikaela allowed herself to be whisked away by Aaliyah as the bell rang signaling passing. She hated passing. There was just to much going on with everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get from point A to point B without before the late bell sounded. Fortunately Mikaela and Aaliyah were on the same page when it came to how they conducted passing. Instead of rushing to get to class the two girls took their time stopping by their side by side lockers to retrieve their books. After which they would both about two to three minutes looking at themselves in the mirrors that was placed inside the locker doors. Than they spent the rest of their time socializing with others who they deemed relevant often to chat with until the late bell sounded. With 3/4 of the high school population being losers the halls were mostly cleared by the time the late bell rang seeing as only really popular and suppose to be "rebels" ever went to class late.

Entering the classroom Mikaela headed straight to the back of the room. When it came to her classes she never sat directly in the front as the was loser domain. The way sitting started for her was in the middle section of the room and depending on how much she liked or better yet disliked the class determined how far back she sat. Physics being one of her most least favorite class meant she was sitting all the way in the back for this class. Taking a seat by the window she took out the essentials and began writing the notes that were written on the board.

Ashley had just finished learning the chords to the piece as the bell sounded for next class. She groaned in frustration. Music was the only class that she really gave a damn about which meant the rest of the day would mostly be a bore. If it wasn't for the fact that she knew Tristan would be checking for her she'd been on her way to the student parking lot. Placing the guitar on the stance she said goodbye to her music teacher and left the room.

Ashley's method to handling passing was to get what she needed and get out of the halls as quickly as possible. She couldn't stand everyone pushing and shoving in their rush to get to class that none of them really wanted to go too. As if that wasn't bad enough the damn stampedes happened every single time. When she made it to her locker Ashley collected the things she would need for Physics then closed the locker back. Maneuvering her way through the sea of hormonal teens she got to class just before the late bell rang.

Wanting to avoid the bobble heads and jockstraps who she knew from past experiences would flock to the back of room she seated herself in the third row of the room. It was far enough away from the so-called populars and not to close to the front to draw attention. Which was just how she liked it. Taking out her books and her writing utensil she started taking notes. Physics wasn't the most interesting subject in the world but it wasn't her most hated so she could pull through it.

Before he knew the bell was ringing and students quickly raced out of the class to go and social or get their books or more importantly talk to their friends. Tristan said long enough to clean his station and wash the grease off of his hands and arms. After saying goodbye to his teacher he entered the hallway and made his way to locker. Retrieving his Physics book, a notebook and a pen he locked his locker back then hung out in the halls for about five minutes as he talked to friends before finally heading to class. Walking into class he was late but teachers were used to it from people from his clique so nothing was said. Taking the available sit next to Ashley he smiled "Look who's still here. I would have thought used cut out and go home."

Entering the room behind Mikaela she followed her to the back of the room and took a seat beside her. Her eyes glanced around the room and she was not happy with what she was seeing. People like Blair Bellamy should not be sitting with let alone talking to doe-eyed nobodies like whoever the hell the girl he was sitting next to was. Especially after just being seen with the two hottest girls in the entire school. That was just a major no no. Plus her ex-boyfriend was sitting with her ex-best friend. It's not like she was jealous of their friendship or anything, it was just the principle of the matter.

The loud shatter drew her attention to a mess probably made by some klutz. There was a crowd of bodies in the front of the room cleaning up a mess that literally only took one person a couple of damn paper towels. Rolling her eyes she glanced over at Mikaela who was busily at work completely their lab. Aaliyah would help her if she knew anything about Physics. Both girls had classes that were their strengths and weaknesses, while neither girl was all that great when it came to Physics Mikaela was far better at it than herself. Glancing back up to the front of the room the commotion had died down and most of the group had disbanded leaving just her friend Lillian and that loser Akira.

For whatever ungodly reason she knew that Lillian was attracted to the loser and for the life of her she couldn't see why. He wasn't even good looking. Aaliyah had a keen eye and it didn't slip pass her when Akira slipped Lillian a piece of paper. The sight made her want to gag. Oh hell no! Nudging Mikaela she pointed to the display of awfulness going on in front of her. "Did you see that?! If that's what I think it is I will rain on kinds of hell down upon this school. We cannot let our friend settle for the likes of that! Are you listening to me?!"

While she did like school Christina despised Mondays. After lounging around and having fun all weekend it was such a drag to have to wake up at six in the morning to make it to school. Plus it always seemed like time moved at a snail's pace on Mondays. She felt like she had been in school for hours and yet it was only 8:15 and she was still in her first period class. As her history spoke about the history she expected everyone to do for tomorrow Christina packed up her things as she waited for the last three minutes of class to pass.

When the did the bell rung and the students all got up out of their seats and headed for the single door at the front of the room. Due to Tristan wanting to go by Ashley's house before school Christina had taken the bus to school not wanting to be a bother to her parents and not having her permit yet. Without her brother there rushing her along she had gotten to school late and hadn't been able to stop by her locker to due her usual drop off pick up.

Walking through the busy halls of Manor Hill High she made her way to her locker. Tossing her leather jacket into her locker she grabbed her algebra 2 textbook and slid it into her bag. Seeing as she used a binder for all her classes she didn't have a million and one notebooks for different subjects which she was thankful for. Closing her locker she snapped the lock closed and pushed her sunglasses to the top of her head and maneuvered her way through the crowds to her math class.

Placing Friday's homework on the teacher's desk as she entered the room she went to the middle row and took a seat. Getting out her textbook, binder, calculator and lead pencil she opened her textbook to the page written on the board and began doing the first five problems that the class was going to do once the usual late attendants arrived.

"Look who's still here. I would have thought used cut out and go home." Ashley looked up and smiled at the sight of Tristan. "Oh believe me I considered it. But knowing you I figured you'd just follow me home and bring me back here. So instead of going through all of that I just came to class." Sliding the assignment to the middle of the table so that they could share she turned her notebook so that he could read her notes and answers. Anyone who knew Tristan knew that he wasn't the brightest when it came to book smarts. So when it came to shared assignments she would do the solving and if presentations were needed that's where Tristan came in. Which was perfect for Ashley as she hated having everyone's undivided attention on her whenever teachers made her come up to the front of the room.

While Aaliyah was busy surveying the classroom Mikaela was hard at work racking her brain to solve their Physics assignment. Physics was by no means her strong suit but with Aaliyah preoccupied with everything but Mikaela was on her own on this one. Tapping her pen on the desk she chewed on the inside of her lip. A habit she had developed when she couldn't figure things out. Looking up to the front of the room she wondered if Ashley had it all figured out. Knowing her she probably did. Of course because Ali and Ash were still at odds with one another she couldn't go up to her and ask for Ashley's help. Well she could but then Aaliyah head would spin like that creepy girl's in the Last Exorcism before finally exploding.

The commotion from the front of the room only captured her attention for a moment before she went back to doing her work. Mikaela might have been better at Physics than Aaliyah but the work was still a challenge for her, although she was making progress. Feeling a nudge against her shoulder Mikaela kept working as her friend began ranting. "Did you see that?! If that's what I think it is I will rain on kinds of hell down upon this school. We cannot let our friend settle for the likes of that! Are you listening to me?!" Mikaela laughed, "Yes, Ali I hear you." Looking up from her work she looked forward to see just what it was that had Aaliyah about to raise all kinds of hell.

Aaliyah was very much about preserving the social standings of high school. Which was expected of those at the top of the social ladder as she and Aaliyah were. Mikaela didn't really care so much about who dated who as long as it didn't personally affect her. Lillian and Mikaela were friends and had been for years, she had known for awhile that she had a crush in the school but she hadn't figured out just who yet. Now with this note all was clear. "Aaliyah do me a favor and calm the fuck down chica! No need to go opening the depths of hell over a damn note. We don't even know what the thing says. Will talk to her later about it." Mikaela turned her attention back to the assignment. Class was going to end in ten minutes and she still had two questions to finish before the bell rung.

"Aaliyah do me a favor and calm the fuck down chica! No need to go opening the depths of hell over a damn note. We don't even know what the thing says. Will talk to her later about it." Aaliyah groaned loudly in annoyance. If anyone else had suppose to her like that she would already been a work scheming of ways to destroy them. Or in the least they would have gotten bitch slapped. However, this was Mikaela who was speaking to her so all she could do was shut up and wait, but just because she wasn't talking about it didn't mean she wasn't still thinking about it.

If it turned out that the note was what she thought it was being so kind of date. Then they would do things Mikaela's way. At first. Of course when the ways of words ultimately failed then she would get to do things her way. That way being the way that she preferred things as it was always a thousand times more fun. The bell rung moments later and the second it did Aaliyah got up out of her seat and walked over to Lillian. "Hey Brandon! Lil we need to talk."

Tristan observed Ashley's work as he jotted down her notes into his notebook. He was glad that he had pretty much the exact same schedule as so many of his friends. Everyone knew that he wasn't the smartest book wise and instead of making fun of him about it they'd help him. By help most of the time that just meant giving him the answers but there were a couple of hard asses who always wanted to do things the hard way by actually trying to teach him the material. He went to those people last.

"You know me well. After all the work I put in just to get you out the door today. I would have definitely been right back at your house dragging you out by your ankles." Tristan laughed as he pushed her book back to her, "Thank you." The bell sounded a couple of minutes after and Tristan took the completely lab up to the front of the room. "See you in history!" Tristan needed to stop by his locker before his next class and transfer books. Plus Ashley didn't really do his usual passing mingle.

"I had to look good enough so I could sit next to you." Christina replied with a simple giggle as she finished what was going to be tonight's homework. Looking up at the clock the bell was seconds from ringing so she started packing up her stuff. Rylie standing up leaned over her shoulder and whispered into her ear again. "And we both know you love it when I whisper in your ear." Laughing Christina just shook her head as the bell rang and Rylie was out the door.

Getting up from her desk she walked to the front of the room and handed her teacher the homework. "Nice work today Christina. Maybe next time you can refrain from sitting next to certain students." Christina knew exactly who the teacher was referring to and simply nodded in understanding. "Yes ma'am." Exiting the classroom Christina walked through the halls until she reached her locker. She stuffed her entire bag into the locker not needing anything in it for gym class.

Locking her lock back she turned around and was startled to see her brother standing behind her. "Jesus Tris!" She punched him in his shoulder which just made him laugh. "Scusi. Non volevo spaventarti." Both Christina and Tristan were fluent bilinguals speaking both English and Italian. It was uncommon for them to go back and forth between the two languages when having a conversation. "What do you have next?" Tristan asked as he looped his arm around Christina's shoulder and pulled her in as they began walking down the hall. "I've got gym. You?" Tristan groaned, "History. God I miss having gym! It was best subject." Christina laughed, "Il tuo tale jock!"

Tristan rolled his eyes as they stopped in front of the girls locker room. "I'll see you at lunch." He said playful nudging her towards the door. "Alrighty." Partially pushing opening the locker room door she eyed her brother trying to seek a peek through the crack. "Get out of here! Cosa striscia!" Tristan chuckled as he backed away slowly with his hands raised before turning around and running off to get to the class that he was now late for.



Italian to English translations

Scusi. Non volevo spaventarti. - Sorry. Didn't mean to scare you.
Il vostro un tale jock! - Your such a jock!
Cosa striscia! - Creeper

As the three girls exited the room Mikaela lowly groaned at the sight of the guy who had started all this drama with his inability to pass a damn note discreetly. Now here he was waiting outside the classroom like a stalker leeching to Lillian's side as the walked. "Yoshio can overreact, sometimes. I could have intervened, but knowing him, it would not have worked. Perhaps reverse therapy is what he needs in order to learn to keep his cool. That temper of his is going to get him into trouble, one of these days. It's a wonder he hasn't received a black eye, by now." OMG! These frickin' japs are gonna give me a migraine. Mikaela just wanted everyone to move on. What happened back in Physics was far from a big deal. Aaliyah didn't even seem to be stressing the little debacle so she didn't get why Akira even felt the need to talk about it.

Fixing his glance to see all three of the dazzling beauties he continued talking to Mikalea's displeasure. "Yep, I heard the whole conversation. Nothing new, concerning the petty insults. Doesn't even bother me." Mikale rolled her eyes in annoyance. She hadn't even uttered an insult towards Akira or his cousin but if Akira kept plucking at her last good nerve he was going to get an ear full. "Really?! I hadn't noticed how unbothered you were by the "petty insults" you just had to bring up." Her tone was slick with sarcasm as the neared their next class. Mikaela didn't even like Economics but if it got Akira to shut up and take a hike it was welcomed.

"Ladies first." Mikaela refrained from saying anything as she just walked pass him entering the room. As if her nerves weren't already on edge due to the events that ended last class, Mr. Sobel was on his bullshit. Akira apologized for the group as he entered the room behind the females. "Sorry does not cut it. You four will serve detention, today, after school. Mister Apostolos, I will let your football coach know about this tardy and punishment." Mikaela scoffed at the teacher's words which he clearly heard as he addressed Mikaela. "You have something you want to say Ms.Taylor." Mikaela thought about it for a moment before speaking. "As a matter of fact I do. ¡Adiós!" Turning to Aaliyah and Lillian she spoke again, "I'll see you gals in English. Will talk about the whole note thing during lunch." Leaving the classroom she headed to her dad's office.

Ashley had watched the little thing that transpired between the reigning queen and her friend from the music club. She didn't exactly feel like what Yoshio had done was the smart move but it was surely a ballsy one. She was just hoping it didn't come back to bite him in the ass sooner or later. She had witnessed the powers of the wicked witch of the manor first hand and it wasn't always pretty. However, it didn't seem like Aaliyah was really giving Yoshio the time of day at the moment so she figured he was in the clear. At least for the time being until the girl got bored.

She sat sideways with her back against the wall and her legs swung over Tristan's lap. She had her book in her lap and was writing down the notes on the board when the girls and Akira had shown up late. Of course in true hard-ass Sobel fashion he gave the four teens after-school detention. This made Ashley laugh. Not because the thought of the popular kids sitting in detention made her happy but because she knew there was no way Aaliyah and Mikaela would actually be serving detention. Mikaela's father was the principal of the school. No matter what the girl did she would always get off scot-free because she was daddy's little girl. Aaliyah being daddy's little girl's bff meant she would also get let off the hook. Hell there was a good chance the only person serving after-school detention would be Akira which was pretty messed up when you thought about it. Either way it wasn't her problem.

Gossip in high school spread faster than a cheetah running across the Savanna, especially the juicy gossip. It hadn’t even been a full period later and people already knew and were talking what had happened during Ms. Composto Physics class last period. From what Christina got out of the locker room chatter Aaliyah and some dude who no one seemed to know the name of got into some kind of verbal showdown. Giving the fact that no one knew who the guy was Christina chalked him off to be so kind of irrelevant nobody on the social ladder so she couldn’t imagine Aaliyah taking anything he said to seriously. Then again this was Aaliyah and giving up the opportunity to make someone’s life hell wasn’t in her nature.

Christina would get the full details during lunch when she saw her brother and the rest of the gang. For the time being she cut out the chatter and changed into her gym clothes.  Putting her hair up into a messy bun she exited the locker room and jogged to the gym.  The second her foot stepped into the gym she was spotted by the girl’s basketball coach. “Torres!” He blew into the whistle as if she had missed the sound of his booming voice.  Jogging over to her coach she came to a halt in front of the man, “Morning coach!”

“You getting pumped for the season? And when I say the season I mean our season not that damn softball - ”

“Am ready and pumped for both coach.” She didn’t know what the deal was between her basketball coach and her softball coach but whatever the problem was the two hated each other. They had been that way since she met them and probably before she even attended Manor Hill.  She always felt like the monkey in the middle when it came to the two coaches and they both made she to push her like crazy. Wanting to make sure that she was always prepared for their season.

“Go warm up than join Scout out on the court doing laps.” Christina wasn’t waiting around for him to blow that damn whistle again and she went on the sidelines and did a quick warm up to make sure she don’t pull anything during class. When she finished she ran across the court to where Rylie was and started running at the girl’s pace.

As the three popular girls exited their Physics class with arms linked like chains Aaliyah rolled her eyes in annoyance when she saw Akira waiting outside the classroom. She didn’t care if he did play on the football team the guy was no true jock and was annoying as hell. Gravitating to Lillian’s side he apologized for his cousin temper as if anyone cared. "Yoshio can overreact, sometimes. I could have intervened, but knowing him, it would not have worked. Perhaps reverse therapy is what he needs in order to learn to keep his cool. That temper of his is going to get him into trouble, one of these days. It's a wonder he hasn't received a black eye, by now." Rolling her eyes she glanced over at Mikaela who appeared to be just as annoyed with this jerk off as she was.

“Well that black eye could always be arranged.” While setting someone up for a beat down wasn’t really Aaliyah’s style she did have the power to make it happen and if pushed she wasn’t above it. "Yep, I heard the whole conversation. Nothing new, concerning the petty insults. Doesn't even bother me." This made Aaliyah laugh as she yet again rolled her eyes.  “Congrats on that. Maybe you should consider teaching your cousin the same trait. Or at least how to mind his own damn business when things don’t concern him.”, she added after Mikaela spoke. "Ladies first.", Akira spoke as they reached the Economics class room.

Entering the classroom behind Lillian Mr. Sobel wasted no time opening his mouth.  She rolled her eyes as Akira apologized like a polite Christian God taught him to be.  Of course Sobel being the obnoxious asshole that he was an apology just wasn’t good enough for the man and he sentenced the four teens to a day of after-school detention. Mikaela scoffed to which Mr. Sobel was not to please to hear.

"You have something you want to say Ms. Taylor?!" Mikalea was obviously at the end of her rope and Mr. Sobel just kept tugging. "As a matter of fact I do. ¡Adiós!" Turning to her and Lillian she spoke again, "I'll see you gals in English. Will talk about the whole note thing during lunch." Aaliyah nodded as Mikaela took her leave.

“Well Ms. Jordan do you plan on standing there the entire class or are you to take a seat?!” Aaliyah glared at her teacher for a moment before taking a seat with a couple of the jocks towards the back of the class. She hadn’t stopped by her locker so she didn’t have her books needed for the class. Not wanting to hear Mr. Sobel mouth again she took out her notebook from last period and had one of the boys copy their notes into her book for her. She would transfer the paper into the right book later.

Image
Image

Tristan watched Mikaela’s blow up and felt bad as she stormed out of the class. She was clearly not having a good Monday. He hoped that things would settle down by next period. He knew high school was all about drama but that didn’t mean he liked it. Ashley laugh got his attention as he just shook his head taking her notebook out of her lap and placing it on his desk.  Coping the notes he just couldn’t wait for this and next period to end so he could finally get to lunch.

Mikaela walked through the empty halls of Manor Hill until she reached the principal's office. When she entered the room her father's receptionist smiled from the other side of the desk, "Good morning Ms.Taylor. How are you doing today?" Closing the door behind her as she entered she spoke, "Morning Nancy! I've been better. Is my father is in his office?" The receptionist nodded as she gave Mikaela is one second finger and picked up the phone. "Sir you daughter is outside and would like to see you. Yes I'll send her in now." Before the woman could hang up the phone Mikaela was opening the door and walking into the office.

"Hey padre." Mikaela said walking in and sitting down in the black leather chair that sat across from the desk. Dropping her bag at the side of the chair she sighed loudly as she looked at her father with her puppy dog face. "Well that doesn't sound good. ¿Qué le pasa a mi hija?" Mikaela loved that she could just stop by her father's office and talk to him whenever she wanted. Friends were great but sometimes you just needed family. "That a-hole Mr. Sobel gave me detention! Well not just me. Me, Ali and Lilly." Her father nodded while her skimmed the paperwork sitting on his desk. "And what did the three of you do that made Mr.Sobel give you guys detention?" Mikaela sighed again, "We got to class late and before you start I know that it's wrong and education is the most important thing in the universe and all that stuff, but you got to admit after-school detention for a lateness is a little harsh. Especially our first lateness! I mean it's the second week of school and these halls are mayhem during passing."

Her father merely chuckled as he shook his head. "Look I'll talk to Mr.Sobel but you and your little gal pals are gonna have to learn how to get to class on time. Because as you said education is the most important thing in the universe and all that stuff." The father and daughter duo shared in a laugh as Mikaela eyes turned and faced the clock hanging on the wall. The bell was about to ring and she was going to have to go to her next class. "So does that mean we don't have detention after-school. Because I really need my girls this week. You know for birthday preparations and what not." Her dad looking up from his papers nodded with a smile. "Just this once Mickey." A smile spread across her face from ear to ear as she got up and rushed over to her father wrapping her arms around the man. "Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!" This wasn't the first time her father had gotten her or her friends out of trouble and it wouldn't be the last.

As the bell finally rang signaling the end of third period Mikaela kissed her father's cheek and gave him one last you before rushing out of the office. She headed to her locker to get her things for her next class and wait for Aaliyah.

Image
Image

The rest of class was pretty uneventfully as time passed by slowly. Ashley had spent most of the class falling in and out of sleep with Tristan nudging her every so often to keep her being the next person Mr.Sobel assigned detention to. When the bell rang she was happy to finally escape the snooze feast she was in. Jumping to her feet she pack her bag and exited the room to get to her next class.

Stumbling into school late as usually Nicholas head was pounding and the ringing of that damn bell wasn't helping. He had absolutely no clue what time it was or what class he was suppose to be heading to. It was kind of surprising with the way he conducted himself during school hours that he managed to not only pass but excel at school. If he actually had more of an initiative he would probably be pulling straight A's and on the honor roll. Of course than that would make him sort of a nerd and him being a rebel and all he wasn't entire sure if the delicate high school social ladder could stand for the injustice of a nerdy rebel.

He cursed himself for not wearing darker shades as the florescent lights were only making his head feel worst. He wasn't sure what was worst the pounding of his head or his wrenching stomach muscles. He'd spent nearly the entire morning hanging over the toilet bowl vomiting until there was nothing left in his stomach to throw up. Than he was left feeling like he was about to puke but did nothing but dry heave for over an hour. When he heard his mom come in from working a double he pulled on the first pair of clean clothes he could get his hands on and hopped out the window. How he had gotten home the night before he had no clue but his bike had been parked about two blocks away from the house which was good luck on his part because his mom hadn't seen it.

When he finally reached his locker he didn't have the energy to open it as he rested his head against the freezing metal. It felt so good. His throat was dry and sore from his stomach acid burning his esophagus and he was feeling dehydrated. After a couple of minutes had passed by he put in his locker combination and popped the lock open. He look at the things in his locker with a blank stare, he didn't even know what he needed because he didn't know what period this was. Looking around the hallway as people flew by he picked Ashley's red hair out of the crowd. "Ash! Ashley come here!", he called out to her waving her over. If he was going to get through the rest of this day he was going to need some assistance.

Ashley made her way to her locker avoiding most of the cautious going on around her. It was four period now which meant she had made it to the halfway point of her day. She wasn't looking forward to English class but at least she got to look forward to having lunch next. Normally she didn't care for school lunch but today she had skipped breakfast today was looking more and more like a five star meal. Fourth period could pass by fast enough for her.

"Ash! Ashley come here!" Coming to a sudden halt in the middle of the hall her head spun around trying to locate who had called her out. The voice was a familiar one and when her eyes landed on Nicholas she couldn't but smile. She hadn't seen him once since the summer had ended and she had missed her rebellious rebel. Maneuvering through the halls avoiding the other kids passing by she made it to the row of lockers that Nicholas was leaning against. "You look like shit!", she said with a laugh as she got up close. He looked tried and smelled of musk and smoke. "I can see someone had a long night last night." With another laugh she grabbed him by his arm and pulled him away from the lockers. "Let's get to work."

Ashley was use to dealing with Nick during times like these. Giving the fact that he rarely showed up to school in sober state it was something she expected from him. Leading him to the boy's locker room she wasted no time as she guided her hangover friend to the showers. "Take off your clothes and get in the shower. I'll be back before you know it." She spoke as she turned on the shower and left the locker room to let Nicholas shower in peace.

Going back to her locker instead of looking for books she grabbed her purse. She shuffled through all her belongings until she found what she was looking for. A small bottle of eye drops, her pocket air freshener that she used when she went into public bathrooms, her emergency Advil that she carried in case of cramps and her packet of gum. She slid the eye drops, Advil and gum into her pockets so that she could still manage to carry her books and the air freshener. Stopping by the vending machine on her way to the showers she bought a bottle of water so Nicholas would have something to take the pills with.

By the time she returned back to the locker room fourth period had already begun and the room was empty aside from herself and Nicholas. He was redressed in his clothes by the time she returned and his hair was damp from the shower. "Alright let's go! Were already running late as it is." She got to work pulling Nicholas to his feet and retrieving the eye drops from her pocket. Nicholas was taller than her so she stood on one of the wooden benches so she didn't have to stand on her tippy-toes. "Look up.", she said tilting his head up, "Blink and I'll punch you." She dripped two drops into each of his eyeballs then slipped the bottle back into her pocket. "Take this." She gave him the packet with the two Advil pills in it as she hopped down off the bench.

Picking up the air freshener she without warning began spraying Nicholas down. Spraying him up, down and all around with her extra strength febreze to go when all was done she stood back with a satisfied smile spread across her face. It was one of her first genuine smiles in weeks and it felt good to be happy. "Alright time for class." Tossing him the packet of gum she gave him a serious look "Chew that. Now." Grabbing all of her belongings she hurried out of the locker room that she wasn't even suppose to be in as she rushed to the English class that they were now both late for.

"You look like shit!" His eyes were closed as his head still rested against the metal locker. He couldn't see her laughing but he could hear her, a sarcastic "Thanks." was all he muttered to say. "I can see someone had a long night last night." She continued laughing as he felt her grab his arm and start pulling him through the cluttered halls. "Let's get to work." Nicholas groaned knowing what was coming. People passed in blur as he was escorted to the boy's locker room. Fortunately for the duo the locker room was currently vacant so they were in the clear. The risk was higher for Ashley seeing as a girl caught in the boy's locker room could have severe consequences. Especially if she was caught in the locker room with a naked guy which is exactly what he was about to be as he was ordered to take off his clothes and get in the shower. "I'll be back before you know it." As he began striping out of his clothes and heard the shower turn on and than just like that Ashley was gone. Walking over to the lockers he picked one at random and he popped the locker open after one pounding hit of his fist. He rummaged through the locker grabbing the towel and the bar of soap inside.

Guys who actually had gym this period began flooding into the room so he wrapped the towel around his waist to cover his junk. He knew a couple of guys who entered the locker room and the all gave him confused looks as they knew seniors didn't take gym so they was curious as to why he was there. He said nothing giving simple waves of acknowledgement in their direction as he walked over to the showers. He had the entire shower area to himself as everyone else was changing into their gym clothes and heading to class. The water at the school wasn't the hottest but it felt good on his skin as he stepped into the room temperature water. He rested his head against the tile wall as the water showered his body. Nicholas didn't spend much time relaxing knowing Ashley would "be back before he knew it" and he didn't want to flash her with his body parts. Lathering up his body with the soap he washed quickly and was done by the time the locker room had cleared out.

Walking to the bench he left his clothes at he threw his clothes back on than sat down resting his head in his hands as as he waited for Ashley to return. His temples felt like they were throbbing and he was still felt thirsty and was feeling lightheaded. "Alright let's go! Were already running late as it is." Looking up he smiled to see Ashley had returned and she came back with more than just her books in hand. Pulling him to his feet they traded places as she stood up on the bench he had been just sitting on. "Blink and I'll punch you." He chuckled as she tilted his head up and dripped four drops of eye drops into his eyes. He hated eye drops but was use to them by now. As she stepped down he wiped the tearing liquid that rolled down his face.

"Take this." As his watery vision cleared he saw the small Advil packet she held and took it from her as she also handed him a bottle of water. "Oh my god. Yes!" Nicholas didn't even care about the pills he was just ecstatic to have water. Knocking his head back he popped the pills into his mouth and used the water to smoothly gulp them down. The water felt so freshening he downed the entire bottle in a matter of seconds. There was now a chance of him getting stomach cramps later but he didn't care about that as he was just happy to have finally quenched his thirst.

Without warning he was engulfed by the strong scent of febreze "What the fuck?!" He began coughing as the air freshener went down his throat. As the smoke cleared Ashley stood in front of him with a proud satisfied look on her face. "Well it's a good thing am not an asthmatic." Tossing a packet a gum his way she spoke, "Alright time for class. Chew that. Now." He laughed as he unwrapped a stick of gum and stuck it in his mouth. Grabbing the empty water bottle he shot it into the garbage can. Collecting the now damp towel and used bar of soap he stuck it back into the locker he had taken it from and shut the door closed. When he got back to the bench where his bag was Ashley was already out the locker room and heading to class. Sprinting out the door he ran down the halls trying to catch up.

Rylie knew she was running late to fourth period. The bell had already rang, signalling the end of third period. Rylie had her jeans on, just peeling her tank over her head. Sprinting out of the locker room, Ry stuffed her plaid button up shirt into her backpack, slinging it over her shoulder in her rush to make it to her Speech/Debate class. "Scout!" The gym teacher called out just before Rylie managed to escape. "Great work today. Keep improving and I know we can make it all the way this year. Counting on you kid! Now get to class." Throwing a smile, Ry nodded to her coach. As she exited the gym, she saw the halls thinning and knew the bell was about to ring. She heard a couple of girls giggling as she passed, offering little waves.

"Hey ladies, plenty of this to go around." Rylie smirked, walking backwards as she lifted her tank top a little to show her abdominal muscles. Without caring for their reactions, Ry turned to her locker and grabbed out her speech book. The bell rang, and Rylie groaned, leaning her forehead against the cold metal in exasperation. Her pocket buzzed.

*Your father will be in LA closing a business deal with a client. He'll be back next Tuesday. -Lucile* Of course, Lucile was her father's assistant and occasional fuck-buddy. The woman tried to pretend that she wasn't getting in the older Scout's pants, but Rylie knew better. With a wicked grin, Ry had a plan. She marched to her Speech/Debate class, opening the door with a cocky smirk. As she entered, the teacher Mrs. Nelson glared.

"Well since you decided to make such a big production of your entrance Rylie, how about you be our first volunteer. And your... tank top should cover your shoulders." The woman pushed her thick rimmed glasses up her nose, motioning for Ry to stand in the front of class. A few of the students snickered, and Rylie decided to join them. "We're just going to do an exercise... a short improv speech to help get everyone in the mood for class. Your topic is: I Could Never." Rylie only nodded, biting her lip a bit as she bit back a laugh. Tossing her bag on a chair, she stood in the front of the class. A few of the students knew to expect something from Rylie Scout, and swiftly pulled their phones out to tape it, hiding the devices from the teacher.

"I could never show up late for Speech class." Rylie grinned, staring right at the teacher for a second. "I could never kiss a girl." Winking at some of the girls in class, earning a bunch of laughs. Everyone knew Ry was gay. "I could never stand up here and tell you all that Friday night is going to be epic.... I could never do that, because I could never have an empty house this weekend. And I definitely could NEVER EVER expect to see you all there at say, around 10? Because you all know, I could never throw some sort wild get together. I just could never do that." Ry winked at the teacher before walking up to one of the phones she saw video taping her, whispering right into it. "See you all there. Bring some party favors." With that, she took a seat in her chair, folding her arms and ignoring the teacher's heated glare. Instantly, the video was sent through texts and passed around. Everyone knew about it, and everyone was invited.

Just like every sixteen year old girl in the world Christina wanted nothing more than to get a car and get her license. Of course before she could get either of the two she need to at first get her permit. She could do like Tristan and just keep taking the test until she finally passed but in her mind that was a lot of wasted shopping money in the case that it took her as many attempts as it took him. So when she was offered the driver's ed class she jumped on the opportunity. It was better than going to the DMV and paying to take driving lessons and plus she got school credit. So it was a win-win situation.

For today's class they were all outside doing the taking turns driving over the practice course. Christina had managed to do well at everything expect for the parallel parking which she was bummed about but her teacher had made her feel better saying that everyone had issues with parallel parking. As another student stood up to take a crack at the course Christina rejoined her friends who were busy either looking at their own or each others phones.

"What's going on?", she asked with curiosity figuring some guy had gotten panted in halls again. "Party!" Her friend Anna said pulling Christina down to sit beside her as she handed Christina her cell phone. "Check it out." Taking the phone she saw that he friend had been watching a video that had been uploaded to facebook. Reloading the video she bursted out laughing when she saw it was Rylie. She watched the entire video before handing the phone back to Anna, "Well if I couldn't wait for Friday to get here before I definitely can't wait now. First party of year!"

Aaliyah waited by their lockers for Mikaela to show. Economics had been a bore which she knew it was going to be after Mikaela left her to go vent to her daddy. Aaliyah wasn't in the mood for English but knew after skipping Mr. Sobel class Mikaela wouldn't cut even if she wanted to. Thankfully lunch was right around the corner and she could finally get to the bottom of this thing Lillian had for the Jesus freak. In truth that last name alone should have been enough to drive any respectable girl away. Like who in the hell would ever want to be Mrs. Apostolos.

The pinging sound of a notification hit her ears and instinctually pulled out her cell phone to see what is was about. There was a video going viral on facebook and of course Aaliyah being Aaliyah had to check it out. Going onto facebook she clicked on the video and when it loaded she saw some girl who's face looked familiar to her on her screen. Viewing the video Aaliyah was elated to her someone was throwing a party but wasn't a hundred percent sure if she was going to be attending.

There were no proper invitations being given which meant everyone and anything would be making an appearance. The idea of the first party of the new year involving losers put a bad taste in her mouth. Sticking her phone back in her bag she decided she would attend if nothing better came up through the week. When Mikaela arrived the two girls linked arms and went to their English class together.

Where the hell is she? Tristan asked himself as he stared up at the clock in the classroom. Ashley had left before him and she usually always made it to class before him. Even when she was late she wasn't this late. It was halfway through the period and she was still missing in action. He wondered if she had decided to cut anyway and had just went back home. If that was the case he had lunch next and would have no problem going back to her house and dragging her ass back to school.

"Yo! Dude check this out." Tristan was handed a phone by one of his football teammates sitting behind him. Holding the phone underneath the desk so that he could see it but the teacher couldn't he saw there was a video. He couldn't watch it without alerting the teacher put he read the comments posted underneath the video and saw that there was a party going on this friday at Rylie Scout's place. He knew the girl in question as she and Christina both played on the school basketball team. He would without a doubt be showing up to that.

English was probably he's best subject outside of gym which he no longer had the pleasure of taking because he was a senior. He didn't need Ashley's notes or have her explain things to him in this class which actually made him feel proud himself. Like while he wasn't the smartest person in the world he wasn't a complete idiot. Just as he was starting to expect that his friend would never shown she came waltzing in and she wasn't alone.

"Look who's alive!" Tristan said as Nicholas entered the class behind Ashley. He hadn't seen the guy all day which seeing as the had almost the exact same schedule should not be. It looked like Ashley's house wasn't the only place he should be making pit stops to in the morning. He waited for the two to take their sits before announcing "There's a party going on down this friday. You guys in?"

Mikaela stopped in the middle of the hall as she heard her the notification sound of her phone. Pulling out her cell phone she saw one of her fellow cheerleaders sent of a text of a url for a video. She thought it was going to be some random video or other vine complication but it turn out to be a video party invitation. The girl in the video face was familiar but no her name. Either way the girl was having a party on Friday that the whole school had been formally invited to. As far as she knew she had no other plans and this was going to be the first party of the school year so whether it turned out to be awesome or a totally disaster you always had to go to the first party of the year. It was like an unwritten law of popularity.

Looking up she found herself to be now completely alone. She hadn't even noticed that deserted halls until now and yet again she was late for class. As long as her dad didn't find out it would be no harm no foul. Putting her phone away she walked through the halls heading to her locker. She was surprised by not all that shocked to see Aaliyah waiting for her. "Don't you have class you should be Miss Jordan?" She smiled skipping her trip to her locker and slipping her arm through Aaliyah's as she continued walking. "Looks like we have a party to attend this Friday. I guess were doing a little after-school shopping today."

"Look who's alive!" Turning around she saw Nicholas coming through the door behind her, "Yeah, I found him ten seconds from passing out by the lockers." Taking the seat in the desk in front of Tristan she grabbed his notebook and started making notes of his notes. "There's a party going on down this friday. You guys in?" Ashley shrugged "Whether I want to or not you two are going to make me. So, yeah I guess am in." Ashley didn't feel like going to whatever party was happening this friday but it was the first party of the school year so she wasn't going to ditch it. Plus she was positive that even if she really did say no Nick and Tris would just kidnap her and take her there anyway. There was no point in fighting the inevitable.

Nicholas jogged through the halls reaching Ashley just as she was entering their English class. Walking in behind her he noticed the disapproval glare the teacher threw in their direction out the corner of his eye. He wasn't about to do anything to provoke his teacher as his head still wasn't screwed on tight enough to deal with that bullshit. "Look who's alive!" Nicholas laughed as he walked over to the desk that sat beside Tristan. There had already been a guy in that sit but when he saw Nicholas coming he got up immediately changing his seat.

Nicholas wasn't the most intimating looking guy in the world, in fact it was quite the opposite. It was because of non-lethal appearance that wannabe bad-asses chose to fuck with him in the past and after kicking of a couple of guys asses he got a reputation as a brawler and a good one at that. Most people now just opted to move out his way because they didn't want to risk getting into any kind of altercation. Which Nicholas had no problem with. "There's a party going on down this friday. You guys in?"

Is that really a question? Sometimes I swear these people act like they don't even know me. "What kind of question is that?! Of course am going! Hello it's a party for crying out loud. Where else would a be on a friday night?" He thought about for a hot second than added, "Don't answer that." While he said it to both he looked directly at Ashley when he said knowing her smart ass would have something smart to say. "Whether I want to or not you two are going to make me. So, yeah I guess am in." Ash knows us way too well. "Well there's no way in hell we would let you miss out on the first party of our senior year. What kinda friends would we be if we let something like that happen?"

The question was rhetorically but he wouldn't be surprised if she still answered it. He hadn't gotten anything out of his locker which meant he was book less. Not that he cared. Class was minutes away from ending and the only thing on his mind was lunch. Unlike most people who lost their appetites when hung over Nicholas appetite weirdly increased. It was like having the munchies only he was coming down alcohol instead of weed. "God. I can't wait for this bell to ring. Am starving."

Rylie had to laugh as William did his speech and promptly left the class room. To say the teacher had been pissed off that her class was acting so unorderly today would be an understatement. But it was almost lunch time, and Ry actually turned off her phone from her newfeeds blowing up with the video. She'd be a liar if she didn't admit to be extremely proud of it. With the remaining students going up and giving little speeches, Rylie felt pretty relaxed and leaned back in her chair. Her feet were on the desk now, pushing the chair back as she yawned in boredom. She really did want to just get to lunch. Finally, the bell rang and Ry popped up from her seat so fast the teacher didn't even have time to scold her for the slamming sound her chair made as all four legs reconnected with the tile. In the hallway, she was immediately greeted by some high fives and whistles. Practically running to her locker, she opened it and shoved her minimal belongings into the metal contraption. In a rush, she almost knocked into Nicholas.

"My bad." She smirked, patting his shoulder. Tristan and Ashley were there too, and her grin grew. "Okay, so I don't know if you heard, but I might be tearing my house apart Friday night. I'm expecting to see you all there. Especially you." Rylie said pointedly to Nicholas. He was a heavy partier, and Rylie liked having other people she knew could match her craziness at a party. "But if I don't eat in two minutes, I'm not going to survive 'til Friday." She groaned.

As the bell rang the room erupted as people jumped up out of their seats and made a beeline for the door. School lunch was far from a four star meal but the school lunch was pretty good considering it was no home cooked meal. The band of three waited till most of the room had cleared out before rising to their feet and throwing their bags over their arms. Turning to face his two friends he walked with his back to the traffic rushing by, "I know that you're doubtful but I have a good feeling about this party. I think your gonna have a kick-ass time and in the end your gonna think us for dragging you along. And even if am wrong and the party does suck we can all get shitfaced to the point that we won't even remember anyway. So the way I see it this is a win-win situ-" Nicholas felt something nudge him as he stopped mid-sentence and spun around to see their soon to be host standing before him.

"My bad." She apologized with a smirk and a pat to his shoulder. "All good Ry." Nicholas said sending a friendly smile right back."Okay, so I don't know if you heard, but I might be tearing my house apart Friday night. I'm expecting to see you all there. Especially you." Nicholas couldn't helped but laugh as her last words and pointed finger was directed at him. "Of course we've heard. The whole damn school is buzzing about your little extravaganza. As far coming goes have you ever known me to miss a party. Hell have any of you known me to skip a party? Especially one that I've actually been invited to." He spoke to the small group as Tristan's little sister appeared. "Speaking of Rylie's party you better be coming." He said wrapping his arms around her and pulling her into a friendly hug. He squeezed her tightly as he lifted her a couple inches off the ground and laughed before placing her safely back on the ground.

"But if I don't eat in two minutes, I'm not going to survive 'til Friday." Nicholas turned his attention back to his fellow rebel as she spoke. "Well we can't have that now keep we. Onward and upwards my good man .. and ladies." Looping his arm around Ashley's shoulder he smiled, "I am fucking starving. Which considering the fact I puked up my insides around a half an hour or so go shouldn't really be all that surprising." He lead the way to the cafeteria genuinely shocked that he actually had an appetite. Normally when he was dealing with a hangover he couldn't even stomach the whiff of food but as that moment he could devouring the entire cafe.

There was no point in going to class as the period was just about over. Instead the girls went to the attendance office were they had their attendance altered from absent in English to late. Than from the office they walked to the lunch room talking about the party on friday. They had already begun planning out what they wanted to wear and how they would wear their hair and all that good stuff. When they reached the cafeteria the first bell rang. It wouldn't be long before the cafe would be full of hungry students so the girls got on the line being the first to get their meals. Choosing a random vacant table the two sat down still talking about random things as they waited for their friends to arrive. The person who Aaliyah really wanted to see was Lillian. A discussion still had be had regarding her choices in the opposite sex. They were in high school and things such as association and dating could make or break someones rep and at this moment Lillian was going down the path of ruining her social reputation. Which may not be something she was personally concerned about but as one of her friends Aaliyah was fine doing all the worrying and damage control for the both of them.

Her class had just re-entered the school building from one of the many side entrances as the sound of the bell ringing hit her ears. It was finally time for lunch a period that the entire student body prayed for. One of the few things the students had in common no matter which clique you were apart of. Whether you used the time to actually eat, socialize, catch up on some z's or do something bookie like read or study. Everyone enjoyed lunch. Christina hadn't need any her books since gym so she had no reason to go to the locker as she had nothing to pick up or drop off. So she walked the halls heading to the cafe where she would meet up with her brother and friends.

Tristan walked down the hall with Nicholas and Ashley finally looking forward to one of his periods. Nicholas was doing his best to reassure Ashley that friday's party was going to be a good and fun time. After Ash's dad died she had spent the weeks after the news reeling in booze and drugs. She had closed herself off to the friends along with the rest of the world and the only time she ever expressed the pain she was feeling was when she was blackout drunk. Which was either a time of sadness, anger or a mixture of the two. She had pulled herself together towards the end of the summer but she had stopped going to parties and having fun altogether which was funk Tristan and Nicholas had made it their personal mission to get her out of. Which was why Nicholas was a hundred percent right in everything he was saying. No matter what happened Ashley would have fun this friday. At least this friday night anyways he couldn't promise anything in the morning seeing as they would all still as school.

As Nicholas and Rylie avoided a full on collision due to Nicholas backwards walking and Rylie appearing to be in another world the two started up conversation. "Okay, so I don't know if you heard, but I might be tearing my house apart Friday night. I'm expecting to see you all there. Especially you." Nicholas laughed replying by saying, "Of course we've heard. The whole damn school is buzzing about your little extravaganza. As far coming goes have you ever known me to miss a party. Hell have any of you known me to skip a party? Especially one that I've actually been invited to." That's when Tristan laughed because in truth he had never known Nicholas to skip a party. Invite or no invite. Day or night. Sunshine or rain. If there was a party going on Nicholas Ryder Wilde would be there.

"Speaking of Rylie's party you better be coming." Christina smiled as his arms wrapped around her and squeezed her as he lifted her up off the ground. "Okay ouch. Niko I hurting me and can't breathe. Put me down. Now." The two laughed as she was placed back on the solid ground. The guy was strong. Wrapping her arms around Tristan's waist her head fell on her side as she looked at their three friends. "I wouldn't miss it." She said agreeing to go to Rylie's party that Nicholas had questioned her about when she first arrived. "Your going too right Ash?" She looked at Ashley but the girl didn't have time to respond as Tristan answered, "Oh yeah, she's coming." Christina knew how hard the past couple of months had been for Ashley and knew that her brother and Niko were doing what the could to get her back into the swing of things. She just hoped they didn't push to hard.

"But if I don't eat in two minutes, I'm not going to survive 'til Friday." The siblings laughed as Tristan put his hand on his stomach that agreed with a growl. "I heard that." Looping his arm around Ashley's shoulder Nicholas spoke, "Well we can't have that now keep we. Onward and upwards my good man .. and ladies. I am fucking starving. Which considering the fact I puked up my insides around a half an hour or so go shouldn't really be all that surprising." Christina's face twisted into a look of disgust. "Niko. Really?! Where about to eat. Too much information." Pulling herself off her Tristan she took a step behind him and jumped onto his back. "Now you heard the man. Onward and upwards." Tristan rolled his eyes as he chuckled complying with his sister obvious wish to be carried to the cafe. Walking beside the Nicholas the group made there way to the cafeteria.

"Dude, I should be completely disgusted by that info." Rylie laughed at Nicholas when he informed them all that he'd just puked an hour ago. "But I'm too hungry." She watched Tristan carrying Christina on his back, chuckling at the siblings. The rebel wasn't exactly stealthy as she stared after Christina for a moment before following the group. It was a nice view. Ry was glad they'd be at the party, the group was always a lot of fun and could make sure that the party wasn't dull. They all seemed pretty pumped except Ashley, who was considerably reserved about the party. Ry wasn't insulted, she'd seen how crazy Ashley had been during the summer and heard around the rumor mill as to why, not that she took much stock into what others had said. All Ry wanted was for the older girl to have a good time. So Rylie grinned, glancing sideways at her with an attempt to be reassuring. "I'll make sure you have fun, Daniels. It shall be my life mission!" Rylie put one fist in the air, a look of determination staining her face before it broke into a wicked smirk. "If that doesn't work, I'll order a stripper and get you a lap dance. Sound fair?"

As they entered the cafeteria, Ry could feel the stares from the student body. Some people were still watching the video that went viral, and the rebel shrugged off the excitement that radiated from most of them. A party this Friday seemed to be what everyone really needed to unwind with. Her stomach roared, and she had the decency to at least look a little miffed by the sound. Lifting her tank top slightly so her abs were visible. "Will you shut up? I'll feed you in a few minutes." Talking to her stomach as if it were its own monster wasn't entirely a lie, because the growling from there was pretty fierce. Releasing her shirt, and oblivious to some hungry stares, Rylie sighed heavily as she threw her hands up. "It's not like a didn't eat two bowls of cereal, a poptart, and three apples for breakfast. Maybe I should have had bacon too..." She muttered offhandedly, thinking aloud. The smell of food was only making her more ravenous. As they passed the 'popular' clique, Rylie couldn't help herself. Sure, some might say she was being stupid, but it was fun.

"I hope you ladies are going to the party this Friday." Rylie sat on the table next to Mikaela Taylor, the principal's daughter. She smirked at them both, her feet on the seat and her hand behind her as she leaned back on the table. "Consider this a personal invite. I promise there to be plenty of body shots." Ry chuckled, seeing a teacher begin to walk over. "Shit." She muttered, jumping off the table and holding her hands up in surrender. "Down, Cujo." With a smirk, Rylie spun on the heel of her skate shoes, sending a last wink before she rejoined Nicholas and the gang.

Ashley gave a weak smile as Nicholas looped his arm around her shoulder pulling her into him as the group made there way to the cafe for lunch. "I'll make sure you have fun, Daniels. It shall be my life mission!" Rylie punched a fist in the air with a look of determination and a wicked smirk that made Ashley have to smile. "It seems this is because everyone's mission." She stated matter-of-factly as she glanced up at Nicholas. She appreciated the fact that everyone wanted to make sure she still allowed herself to have some fun in her now that her father had pasted. While she couldn't wait to be done with high school she wondered what would happen to her band of friends when it came to take for them to take that final step into adulthood. Both Christina and Rylie would have another year to complete come next year but as for the rest of them, they were all on their final laps. She really hoped that once they all got their diplomas they would manage to keep in touch and stay friends. "If that doesn't work, I'll order a stripper and get you a lap dance. Sound fair?" Ashley bursted out laughing at this and nodded, "As if I could turn that down."

To get to the lunch line you had to go pass reigning queen bees Aaliyah and Mikaela. Ashley hadn't spoken much to either girl since the whole thing with her ex had gone down. After her father died both Ali and Mickey had both reached out and had spent an entire week at her home despite Ashley begging them to go home. While she would never admit it to either of them she had been really had they had forced themselves on in her in her time of need. Since that week thought she had spoken two words to either of them as she wasn't really sure where they were suppose to go from there. She wasn't sure if she was suppose to just forgive and forget and hold onto her grudge. If it were up to Tristan, Christina and Nicholas things would have been buried between the trio a long time ago. Passing Rylie as she stopped to conversate before getting her lunch Ashley walked onto the lunch line.

"I hope you ladies are going to the party this Friday." Mikaela looked up from her food as the junior rebel approached the two popular girls sitting atop of the table on the side of her. "Consider this a personal invite. I promise there to be plenty of body shots." Mikaela swallowed her food as she muffled a giggle. "As if we could miss out on the first party of the year. Besides with my birthday being next Saturday I've got to see what kind of competition am facing." Mikaela had said that last part as a joke but she did plan on throwing one of the best parties Manor Hill had ever seen. I mean it wasn't everyday a girl turned eighteen. This was a milestone birthday. Just like her sixteenth had been and her twenty first would be.

She caught sight of the teacher approaching them at the same time Rylie did. She could hear Rylie mumble a curse word she couldn't make out as she jumped up off the table. "Down, Cujo." The teacher just glared as she muttered something under her breath as she retreated back to where she had been observing the student body. Winking at the girls Rylie ran off to join up with the others getting their lunches. Lillian was still missing in action and she didn't see Blair either. Aaliyah had said they would discuss the details of the photo shoot Blair had wanted the girls to participate in during lunch but a last the rebel was nowhere in sight. It was unfortunate seeing as Mikaela had actually started looking forward to the photo opt. With a low sigh she just went back to eating her lunch.
