Lunch finally comes by and I hold my tray of food in my lap as I use both my hands to wheel the wheelchair, searching for some place to eat. As usual, I didn’t find a place to eat. Not with Jacquelyn, that is. Sigh. I wheel myself to the library and greet Ms Corcoran. She’s the librarian. Good thing, she and I are quite close. She allowed me to eat in the library, just as long as I don’t mess the place up and drop food everywhere. I smile at her, thanking her as well. I roll my wheelchair to a table and place my tray of food there.
Finally, the cafeteria serves something good for once. Fettuccini! But, again. My stomach wasn’t howling for food. So, I just decided to find myself a book to pass the time by.
I instantly find the right book, in the romance novels sections. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Oh, how I love his books. I roll myself back to my table of tray of food and pull out my iPhone and earphone. As soon as the music starts playing in my ears, I open the book and start reading.
As the lunch bell rings, I finished reading the whole book. It’s really touching when someone you love dies.. and very dramatic at the same time. But it must’ve really felt great having someone there for you the whole time. I’ll never have that feeling. Because.. I am me.
Thank god, Biology’s the last lesson. It’s my most favorite lesson. But, not the fact that I have to share this lesson with Louis and Niall. I’m pretty sure I’m still on Louis’ bad side. And I Jacque is still in her vacation. So, I’m pretty much lonely, but who cares, that’s how I’ve always been.
The final school bell rings, signaling everyone that class and school is over for the day. “Wait, before you all leave” Mr. Anderson holds us in. “There’s a group project for Biology which will be your scores for your finals, the group only consist of 2, and no, I will not let you guys choose for yourselves this time, I’ve written the list of the names I’ve arranged and I’m putting it up here” Mr. Anderson holds up a piece of paper and pins it on the class information board. Everybody stood up, getting ready to leave, when Mr. Anderson stops us again. “I’m not finished. The assignment is that both of you prepare a complete presentation about humans, from the digestive systems, the tracts, breathing organs, environments, all of them, I will email all of you all the list that needs to be put in the presentation, and then I need the group to pick another group to build a human body model, so, presentation for 2 and human body model for 4, class dismissed” Mr. Anderson finally lets us go. The thing about Mr. Anderson, he is up to date. He knows, this generation doesn’t really like to write, so he emails us. No papers, no pencil. Just plain internet.
I stay seated in my wheelchair and waited till everyone left the classroom so I can see the paper clearly, without anyone hogging and pushing behind or in front of me. A voice of guy clearing his throat came in presence. I spin my head towards the voice to see Niall standing a couple of seats back. “Hey..” he greets me, I didn’t reply, just looking down and continue making my way to the board. “I’m talking to you, you know” Niall continues. I shook my head and shrug. “You know I’ll get you to talk to me” Niall comes closer and holds my chin in hands causing me to look at him. I turn my head and start focusing to the list of names Mr. Anderson put on the wall.
I put both my hands on Jessica’s shoulder, spinning her around to face me. I stayed my hand there and crouch down to her eye level. “I said I was sorry, how long are you going to hold the grudge?” I ask her, kind of irritated. She raises an eyebrow at me. “Excuse me?” she scoffs. “Great, you finally decide to talk” I roll my eyes. Why am I suddenly being so evil? Jessica brushes off my hands off of her shoulders. “You.. Why do you have to be so mean?” she asks me, tears starting to erupt from her eyes. Clearly, she’s trying to cover it up as she wipes her eyes. “Why do you have to be such a bitch?” I bark at her. Wait, why am I saying all of this? It’s like my brain and my mouth are saying two different things.
“Why do you have to be such a bitch?” his voice rings in my head, reminding me of all my past. I’m pretty sure my eyes resemble the fear I have in me. I turn my head and just look to the list.
Biology Group Assignment:
Audrey & Kelly
Miranda & Drew
Keith & Jack
Louis & Jacquelyn
Jessica & Niall
Barbara & Sammy
Justin & Selena
And the list goes on as I stop reading until I found my name. Great. “Looks like we’re partners, we’ll start later, come by at 4, neighbor” Niall whispers to my ear.
Yay 40 votes! Yay 6K reads! No still sore throatDX
