Deserts - "Deserts are my weakness. Cake. Ice-cream. Pie. I love them all so much! Its sucks that something so bad for me tastes so good to me. If it wasn't for the fact that I need to stay in shape to keep looking good in my cheer uniform I would have craved in a long time ago."

Starbucks - "Screw Dunkin' Donuts! Starbucks is the shit! I love everything on their menu. When winter comes around you can never catch me without one of there white hot chocolates. "

Sports - "Now when I say I like to play sports I don't mean mud wrestling and freakin soccer and all that crap. When it comes to sports I am into what guys call the girly sports.

If gymnastics is counted as a fucking sport how in the hell is cheerleading not a sport. You now what .. just ... am done."

Other People's Attitudes - "Yes I know that I have an attitude problem of my own but that's not the point. I give attitude but I don't take it from anyone. Unless your one of my friends than I may tolerate a bitch fit here and there but even still don't get carried away."

Being Called A Follower - "I am no one's puppy and I follow no one. I have my own mind and mouth and I do whatever the hell I want."

Animal Abuse -"I fucking love and adore animals and I don't l play around with that animal abuse stuff. I mean I don't go as crazy as them damn PETA people but those ASPCA commercials definitely be getting to me. Michael Vick can go play in traffic than burn in the deepest depths of hell."

People Without Style - "Why? How? What possessed you to leave the house looking like you do. Do your parents not care how you present yourself to the world? Do you not have friends? Like what's really going on there? Fix your shit."

Nonchalant People - "I cannot stand when am upset or pissed off about something and am yelling at whoever the hell just made me this way and there just all calm, cool and collected. Like really? What the hell!"

Bugs - "Bugs. Insects. Whatever you want to call them I hate them. I hate them all. Bees, crickets, spiders, and ladybugs I just cannot. I like animals but bugs will always be a no go for me."

"I can be a bitch, let's just get that out the way. I can be a bitch I know am a bitch and I embrace my inner bitch. A lot of people look at being a bitch as a negative quality but I don't. Me being a bitch let's people know not to fuck with me. Unless they have a death wish that is. Manipulative, backstabbing, vindictive are all words I have heard whispered through the halls as ways to describe me. Part of me always wants to be mad but you can't really be mad at the truth. I am who I am and I accept myself flaws and all. It's not always so much like am trying to be bitchy am just brutal honest. I don't sugar code anything because I just don't see the point. Some people call it being rude but I just call it honesty.

The bad about me is well known through out the halls of Manor Hill High but the good is something that is rarely spoken of. I mean I know am not a saint but am not the devil either. Despite whatever rumors you might have heard. The truth is behind my hard bitchy exterior on the inside am just a little kid. Or at least that's the way my mother puts it. According to her I don't act my age, which is something, am proud of. Me when am at school is like a completely different person to who I am when am at home. At school I have to be Mikaela Taylor. Mikaela Taylor is popular and always has to be on top of everything and I have to look and act a certain way because it’s what is expected of me. When am at home however I really don’t care about what am wearing and how I look. Am home am just relaxing and being me. Not to say that am fake or anything like that it’s just in school there is a lot of pressure. Everything is about your reputation and maintaining it and making sure that you stay in control.

I take the relationships in my life very seriously. I mean whether were talking family or friends or significant others I am just really devoted to the people in my life. My family will always come first but my friends are a close second. As far as boyfriends go I love falling in love and if my man knows how to treat me like a queen I have no problem treating him like a king. Me being me you could call me up at the crack of dawn with whatever troubles are troubling you at the moment and I will stay up talking, crying and listening to you till your hearts content. As bad of a bitch as I can be I can also be an amazing friend."

Relationships

I come from a really big family but if were just talking about who lives in my house. That's would be my parents, my little brother Justin, my morkie Baby and then there is me. I have an older named Andrew who is chasing the dream but he comes home a lot so I get to see him often. Her dad is the principle of Manor Hill High School and her mother is successful fashion designer, Eleanor Taylor, which contributes to her notable fashion sense. While her mother is the main bread winner he dad brings in a lot more than just a principal salary as he has had a lot of luck in the stock market and investments.

History

"I come from a really big familia with a dozen of uncles and aunts and cousins on both sides. I have two brothers. My older brother who is twenty-two his name is Andrew and right now he's trying to make it in the music industry so he's chasing the dream. Then there is my little brother who is ten and his name is Justin. I am extremely close with my entire family but what or better yet who I would be without my parents and brothers I don't even want to think about. I just love them all so much.

Most people who look at the life I live would assume that I am just this bitchy spoiled brat but that is not the case. At least its not the case all the time. My parents have raised me to work for the things that I have and not take things for granted. This is probably one of the reasons why I value you my family and friends so much. Money can be here one day and gone the next but family and true friends will always be beside you.


Other

"I am a girl of made up of many different nationalities being Filipino, Mexican, German, Irish, Spaniard and Native American. I am multilingual being able to speak English, Spanish and Tagalog. In my house we mainly speak English although we do go back and forth between it and Spanish. My car is my baby, my very new baby seeing as I just tolled my last car. I have several tattoos on my body. The first one I ever got is my "Never look back" tattoo on the nape of my neck. My second tattoo is still not completely finished but it by far my favorite. The third on is on left wrist and its of a cross. Fourth would be my roman numerical tattoo of the number 7 on my left wrist. The last one to date would be my infinite symbol tattooed on the side of my pointer finger on my left hand. So yeah am pretty tatted.

"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.

Date: September 16, 2013
Day: Monday
Weather: Partly Sunny, H: 77°F L:61°F
Outfit today :)
Yep, it's one of those days again. One week into school, you walk down the hall, the freshness of the new school year has already begun to fade, you're back into your normal circles with your normal friends.


Lillian looked around the hallway, trying to spot a familiar face, yes, this is the hallway his locker is in, she had wore a special outfit for him today hopefully he notices. She saw Akira picking out a book out of his locker and throwing it into his back before turning around to leave for french class. Maybe she could pretend she bumped into him in the hallway and walk to french together, maybe they can talk about possibly going to the movie together. However, before she could approach him, she pushed dramatically from the back.

"Lily-chan! Ohaiyo! How was your weekend?!"

It was Yoshio always playfully teasing her about Akira, but she didn't mind at all and instead replied

"It's was okay I guess....I mean just the usually swim practice, playing tennis with Brandon, I mean nothing too new from summer"

before hearing the rest of his response, she looked towards Akira's locker, it's empty now...he is gone

Playfully nudging her on the shoulder, Yoshio added, "Said anything to Akira-kun, yet? He's single!"

joyfully laughing she said "nah, haven't yet, I have french with him next though"

Before Yoshio could say anything else Lillian quickly escaped the scene, she could could only say one thing....Yoshio is too gossipy, he always have but doesn't matter he is still awesome

Quickly stumbling down the hall she heard Aaliyah yell into her phone
"Mickey I don't know where the hell you are but where ever you are whatever you are doing get your ass to school now! I am so bored without you and you know how I get when I get bored"

Lillian would have approached her to say hi but since she is too busy talking to Mikaela she decided not to. Walking down the hall she decided to continue seeking for Akira but he is no longer there.....right, then she remembered he has the morning announcements to do, guess he isn't going to be around for awhile.

Looking around Lillian begun seeking for another familiar face to approach. Well, she spotted Jessica Williams walking into school but unfortunately she is not one Lillian will approach.
It's a complete different story. To tell you the exact story, Jessica is a Sophomore.....yes, a long one which I don't want to tell, but to keep it short....she just might be a little weird...

She did see KC and Blair around talking to each other, but she didn't approach them since she doesn't know them that well. Also Brandon did tell her to stay away from them but she just doesn't see the difference, there isn't anything that bad about them is there?

Before she realized it the announcement bell rang and Akira's sweet voice came flowing into her ears
sigh....finally that means french is starting soon, I need to get ready :)

"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.

As Kueng got to class he traded in his pen for his bow and his books for his cello. He patiently sat tuning the rich instrument until he achieved the desired tone. Afterwards the class warmed up with a simplistic 'G' major scale and proceeded with a four part Bach chorale.

Orchestra was easily Kueng's favorite class of the day, he loved the creativity and euphoria of a piece of music coming together with an even blend of all the sections.



ImageAs usual Blair sauntered into his first period art class late. He had an ample amount of time to get to the class on time but he liked being stubborn and troublesome at times and little things like that were usually enough for him to relieve his need for mischief.

Blair walked in with his hands in his pockets and absolutely no books to speak of but he made sure to bring a pencil at the very least so he could work on the only thing he really had a passion for; his art. Blair went casually for his art portfolio and sat at one of the large paint splattered desks that had stools placed all around it. He got out the canvas and began working on cleaning any stray lines that garnished his sketch of himself with a black cape like cloth flowing free behind him. The theme he chose for the collection was simply The Darkness and all the sketches and photographs depicted himself, his sister or different macabre settings around the town like the abandoned church and the town's cemetery. He bit his lip as he thought... This goddamned concentration is missing something... he tapped his pencil on the desk as he tried to conjure up an idea for one more drawing or photo he could add to submit to the Art Institute with his application.

After a few moments of intense work Blair looked up from his drawing and realized he was in the company of Mikaela and Aaliyah, two of the most attractive girls in school. It wasn't even remotely debatable.

"Hey, ladies. I have a proposition." He said as the idea came to him. He could photograph the girls, if they'd allow him. Their popularity was revered, their clothes, lifestyle, hair, you name it and girls wanted them dead for it. The Darkness, was their power in the social hierarchy of Manor Hill High.

"It entails a little photo shoot." He said with a smile that was both charming and mischievous. I could get a few shots for my portfolio and maybe little something extra, if I'm lucky, and I always am.

"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.

"Ouch, right in the ego." Blair said as he clutched his chest as if physically pained by Mikaela's abrupt turn down. Quickly Mikaela turned her back to him, focusing her attention on the teacher, making it all too apparent that she wasn't the slightest bit interested.

Mrs. Stein gestured towards the brunette, choosing her to handout a few dittos probably on greyscale or how to accurately depict light. Mrs. Stein wasn't a very good art teacher, she couldn't explain anything verbally and either resorted to worksheets or drawing it herself.

"It doesn't necessarily have to be a package deal..." Blair spoke as he directed his gaze to Aaliyah who hadn't voiced her opinion yet.
"And there might be Starbucks in it for you." He said with a brief chortle. Mikaela made her rounds and eventually made her way to the table and handed out the papers.
"The offer still stands if you change your mind." He said. He looked up at the clock and noticed the bell was going to ring soon and put away his portfolio and waited at the door of the classroom.

"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." Aaliyah pretended to be insulted as her laughed at lack of cooking skills. "Bitch! Look I know how to cook .... okay not really but I know how to order which is good enough for me." She couldn't help but laugh herself but what did people expect from her. She was to high maintenance to do manual labor. Besides cooking and cleaning is what her family paid the help to do so why would she bother ever doing it herself.

Aaliyah had been pretty zoned out the entire class so she hadn't even noticed when the mysterious Blair had taken a seat at their table. Not that it was a problem seeing as it wasn't like he was some nerd or other loser. "Hey, ladies. I have a proposition." both girls tuned in but while Mikaela seemed to have her guard up Aaliyah was intrigued. As Mikaela cleared the table of their trash Aaliyah wondered what kind of proposition a guy like Blair could have for like her and Kayla. When Mikaela got back Blair shared just what it was he had in mind, "It entails a little photo shoot."

Mikaela shut the idea down the second it came out of his mouth with a classy thank you no thank you. Leave it up to Mickey to do the polite turn down. "Ouch, right in the ego." Aaliyah giggled while Mikaela ignored opting to hand out papers rather than stay at the table. Aaliyah and Mikaela differed in a lot ways. One of the ways being they didn't share the same need of attention and praise. While Mikaela liked attention she didn't crave it the same way Aaliyah did. Which is why she was able to turn down the chance for her own personal photo op with out a second thought. Aaliyah on the other hand would do no such thing.

"It doesn't necessarily have to be a package deal..." Blair spoke to her with his gaze directly and solely on her. "Actually it does. Lucky for you I like the camera." Getting up from the table Aaliyah walked across the room to where Mikaela was still making her rounds, "Were doing the photo shoot." she said matter-of-factly. Before Mikaela could get out a word Aaliyah continued "Look I joined the stupid art class out of my quote on quote love for you, so now your gonna do this photo thing out of your love for me." Aaliyah knew how to get people to do what she wanted when she wanted. Knowing Mikaela she knew she had no chance of convincing her so she was going to guilt her into it. "Plus, we both know I just got out of a relationship and as fine as that boy is me and him alone would totally turn into some steamy hot rebound sex on my part. One that while exhilarating in the end I would probably regret and it would be your fault because instead of being a friend you let me be alone with a hot guy so soon after a break up."

Mikaela looked at Aaliyah in disbelief. She couldn't believe Aaliyah was really trying to guilt trip her right now. More shocking was the fact that it was working. Aaliyah had only taken art for her and she figured it was only fair that if her friend really wanted to do this she could do it for her. "And there might be Starbucks in it for you." Mikaela knew the comment was directed at her which made her roll her eyes as Aaliyah continued following her around the room like her morkie Baby did all the time. "The offer still stands if you change your mind." Mikaela finished her rounds and sighed as she headed back to their table to grab her things. "Fine!", she said turning to Aaliyah, "Fine well do the damn photo op."

Aaliyah was ecstatic as she wrapped her arms around Mikaela neck and jumped up and down. "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" Grabbing her things she took Mikaela by the wrist she pulled Mikaela along with her over to where Blair was waiting for the bell to ring. "We're in!" she said just as the bell rang. "Will discuss the details later." Flashing her famous smile she walked out of the room and headed for her locker to get her books for Physics.

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?!"

"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.

Image
ImageImageImage

"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.

Mikaela was on the last problem when the bell rung and Aaliyah got up and went to the front of the room. When she looked up she expected to see Aaliyah and Lillian waiting for her. Instead there was what appeared to be a showdown going on between Aaliyah and some guy who's face she recalled from music club. She didn't know much to anything about him but it was clear he didn't know who the hell he was messing with. Aaliyah Jordan was the Blair Waldorf of Manor Hill High School. The only person who ever won war against was Aaliyah.

Mikaela tuned into the commotion with the rest of her peers. She felt like she should intervene before things got started but before she could the foreigner was going off at the mouth. "Akira-kun is not some loser, and you've got no right to be butting into Lily-chan's love life. Sure, Akira may take Christianity a little too seriously, sometimes, but he is also a gentleman, gentle around children and animals, and is quite the Renaissance man. If you don't know what that is, look it up." Well isn't he noble. Like everyone else in the room Mikaela's eyes immediately turned to Aaliyah to see how she would react.

To Mikaela's surprise Aaliyah did nothing. She just stood there looking like she was either in deep thought, completely zoned out or just didn't care about what it was the guy was talking about. As the student body began applauding Mikaela rolled her eyes in annoyance. She hated when people did stuff like this. None of them would ever approach Aaliyah or herself on their own but the second some idiot did it they would encourage the stupidity. Yet, never do anything themselves.

Mikaela was relieved when Aaliyah just laughed off the guy's heartfelt speech and meaningless threat. Depending on the Queen Bee's reaction it all could have gone in a completely opposite direction. Fortunately, Aaliyah just spoke calmly and responded as if it were nothing. As if the guy before her was nothing. Before things could get out of hand Yoshio cousin started nudging him towards the door. Getting up from her seat Mikalea walked up to the front of the room handing the assignment to the teacher.

"Yeah you and every other person in this school. See you around hermaphrodite!" With the Japanese trio gone Mikaela turned to the other students in the room. "Alright show's over! Get the hell out!" With narrowed eyes and a look that had serious written all over it the remaining students gathered their things in a hurry as they stumbled over each other to get out of the room. Walking over to Aaliyah and Lillian she smiled at Aaliyah. "Am proud of you. You could have been a real bitch if you wanted to be. I mean you were still kind of bitchy but that guy was asking for it." Turning to look at Lillian she sighed lowly "You see the drama you cause when you try to date those beneath you."

The next class had began to flood in as the third period bell rang. "And now were late. This conversation is far from over.", she said clearly addressing Lillian in her last statement. The teacher looked at those from his second period class, "I know you all love physics but am going to have to ask you all to leave. I have another class to teach." Mikaela nodded, "Sorry sir. Were going now." Standing in-between Aaliyah and Lillian she linked her arms between the two of them and lead the three to the door.

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.

Image

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.

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."

Image
ImageImageImage

"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.

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.

Aaliyah was involved in her phone when a voice directed at her and Mikaela made her look up from what she was doing. "I hope you ladies are going to the party this Friday." Aaliyah had been on the fence about it earlier but Mikaela had made it clear that there was no way they were going to miss out of this party so she had reluctantly agreed. Despite still being fairly disappointed in Rylie's choice to invite the entire school to her affair. Whatever. It wasn't her party and with Mickey's birthday being right around the corner they would be sure to do this party right.

"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.", came Mikaela's reply for both girls. "We wouldn't miss it." Aaliyah spoke as she went back to social networking via her phone. She was texting a couple of the cheerleaders to see who was available to go with her and Mikaela shopping after school. With a party on the horizon they would need some new outfits to be seen in.

Image
ImageImageImage

Entering the cafeteria Christina slide down off his back. "Thanks for the lift." She spoke as she fixed her clothes on her body. "Nessun problema." He said nonchalantly as the two step-siblings got on the line behind Ashley. "You don't have to wait here. I'll get the food you can go join your gal pals at the table. "Whatcha want?" Christina smiled "Doesn't matter. Am to hungry to be picky." With a simple nod of okay Christina smiled and left her brother and friends as she went to join Aaliyah and Mikaela at the table.

"You okay?" Tristan asked Ashley as the line moved up. She seemed to be spacing at the moment and Tristan had a habit of always making sure she was doing okay. Especially since everything that went down with her father dying and all. Over the summer both Aaliyah and Mikaela had reached out to Ashley after her father's passing and Tristan as well as Christina and Nicholas had all hoped the death would bring the three girls back together. It had worked for a week before the girls disbanded. There hadn't been any words between the girls since that week had passed in the summer so Tristan wasn't exactly sure what the status of the relationship was between the trio.

Image
ImageImageImage

"Ally! Mickey!" Christina squealed as she ran up behind the two girls hugging them both. "I've been waiting for fifth period all day. This day is dragging. Than again what would you expect of monday." Sitting down in between the her two popular friends she saw that her brother and the others had finally reached the front of the lunch line. Her stomach growled which made her roll her eyes as she placed a hand on her grumbling tummy. "So are we all excited for Rylie's party?", she asked distracting herself from her ravenous appetite.

The day had finally arrived and tonight would be the first party to kick off this long school year. With Rylie's party tonight, her birthday being right around the corner and this being her last year of high school Mikaela had been feeling like a change was in order. She hadn't known exactly what she had wanted to do at first but as a lazy wednesday rolled around she got it in her head to dye her hair and dye it she did. Thursday morning she had waltzed into school with a new honey-blonde look that blew people away and had Aaliyah wondering if she was going through some kind of crisis. She wasn't going through any she had just wanted a change and before she could talk herself out of it she had just went for it.

The clock was slowly ticking down and Mikaela noticed that Nick looked like he was seconds from bursting out of his skin. As the teacher wrapped up the lesson by collecting back all her creepy graphic photos she wished everyone a good weekend as students made a beeline for door only to be told that they couldn't leave till the bell rung. Mikaela stayed in her seat as she wasn't about to attempt to fight her way through the savages. She would just calmly wait until they all trampled over one another to make her exit from the classroom. One minute to go. She thought to herself as she eyed the circular clock that hung in the room over the garbage bin. Everyone had decided yesterday that they would all go over to the Torres house to get ready for Rylie's party and carpool together. While she knew how they were all getting there she didn't know how they were all getting home because with the way they all planned on partying there would be no designated drivers tonight. At least not any sober ones.

Finally the bell rang out throughout the halls signaling the end of the school day and another week at Manor Hill High School. She had no homework to worry about and the only thing on her mind was the party to come tonight. "Thank the lord this week is finally over." She said as she got up and looked over at Tristan, Ashley and Nicholas who were on the other side of the room. Looking at Aaliyah she warned her, "Please be on your best behavior at Tris and Chris's place. From what I hear it took a lot of convincing to get Ashley to agreed to come over and play dress up and I really want this to go well. I know you miss her as much as I do and this could be the first real step and rebuilding our friendship which again I want. Badly. So if you fuck this up I will murder you in your sleep." While maybe a little harsh her words came from a place of love. The love that she had for both girls and if there was only one thing she could get out of the year it would be to have her, Ashley and Aaliyah all be friends again. This was their last year of high school which probably meant the last chance to make this happen so she was going to do whatever it took to make it happen.

Image

Ashley wasn't entirely sure how she felt about what was going to happen after school. She had been coerced into going to Tristan and Christina's place after school and she couldn't back out of going to Rylie's party. Even if she wanted to not go to the party her friends wouldn't let her miss it. Although she wasn't sure that she wanted to skip it. While she wouldn't admit it out loud she had missed the way she use to be and the fun she use to have with her friends. She knew that her father wouldn't want her to be the way she had let herself become and if anything she would at least try to have a good time tonight.

As the bell rung and the students all flooded into the halls she looked at Mikaela and Aaliyah who were in the middle of a seemingly private conversation. Things had been civil between the girls these last few days and she didn't know how to feel about either of them in truth. Her ex was a douche bag and while she had hated them for what had happened in the past she wasn't sure if that jerk off was worth throwing away years of friendship. She didn't know how Aaliyah felt on the matter but Mikaela had made many attempts to repair the tethered friendship in the past and had made it clear she wanted her back. When the girls joined the group they decided they would wait in the parking lot for Christina and go to the Torres place from there. Exiting the classroom they made their way outside to the student lot to wait for the junior girl.

While one of easiest classes to pass health class was a complete and utter bore. Plus the teacher was weird as fuck with all her gross pictures and way to open discussion. Even as a girl herself she felt a little uncomfortable about some of the things the teacher mentioned so she couldn't feel blame the guys who looked like they were moments from hurling up their lunches. She couldn't be anymore thankful when the lesson finally wrapped up and the teacher began collecting her belongings. The other students took that as a sign to get up out their seats and go racing to the door. Of course the teacher stopped them from leaving not allowing anyone to go until the bell rung.

Part of the reason why the school had been in such a uproar today was because tonight was the first party of the year. Rylie's party. Aaliyah wasn't exactly thrilled to be going to a party being thrown by a junior but Rylie wasn't just any junior. She was rebel and popular clique orientated parties excluded the rebels threw the second best parties around. Plus she was friend of Christina's so Aaliyah couldn't just dismiss the girl. Going to her ex-boyfriend's house after-school wasn't going to be the exact highlight of her day but despite them being ex's Tristan and her were still friends.

As the bell sounded throughout the wild animals were let loose into the halls. Gathering her things Aaliyah got up out of her seat and was about to walk across the room to where the others were waiting but she was stopped by Mikaela. "Please be on your best behavior at Tris and Chris's place. From what I hear it took a lot of convincing to get Ashley to agreed to come over and play dress up and I really want this to go well. I know you miss her as much as I do and this could be the first real step and rebuilding our friendship which again I want. Badly. So if you fuck this up I will murder you in your sleep."

Aaliyah didn't get a chance to get a word in as just like that the conversation was over with a warning served and Mikaela walking away. Mikaela was one of the few people in this world who could talk to Aaliyah any kind of way and Aaliyah wouldn't go on the offensive and start ripping into. Aaliyah knew how badly Mickey wanted the old group back together again and although she would never admit it out loud she wanted Ashley back to. Aaliyah had had ever intention of keeping the peace and avoiding all b.s. and drama. At least with Ashley anyway. Any and everyone else was pretty much fair game to her as usual. Joining the group on the other side of the classroom they chatted for a bit before deciding to out to parking lot to wait for Christina.

ImageThe teacher had assigned them all their first art project of the semester and so far Christina's was coming out pretty well. They were doing distress watercolor dry embossing which with the way it sounded she hadn't expected it to be much fun at first. However, as it turned out the project was surprising fun and both she and her teacher couldn't wait to see how the final product would turn out. Class had flown by for her and she was still in the midst of working when the bell rung signaling the end of class. She took her time cleaning up her work station and was careful to put the still wet painting away as she didn't want it getting smudged or worst completely ruined.

When she was all finished she said goodbye to her teacher and left the classroom. Tristan had texted her that everyone was waiting for her outside so she headed straight for the student parking lot. For it to be fall it was bright sunny day outside and she used her hand to block the sunlight as she found her group of friends huddled together by their vehicles. "What up guys!", she shouted getting everyone's attention as she joined the group.

"What up guys!" The familiar voice of his sister rang out in his ears as she stepped in view. "What took you so long?", he asked as class had ended at least ten minutes ago. "I was in art. Had to clean up my station and but everything away before I could leave." Tristan just shrugged ready to get far away from the building that he would be returning to monday morning. He wasn't exactly sure who had driven who to school today or if they had all just drove their own cars but he had drove himself, Christina and Ashley to school today. "Alright well let's get moving. We've got a party to get ready for." Christina cheered at that calling shotgun as she got into the passenger seat of Tristan's car. Getting into the driver's seat he waited until Ash was in the car before driving off. He had arrived at his home first and left the door unlocked for the others as he entered the house.
