Later that day I went down to have communion, and I always sat with Debby. We usually sat in the front row to keep as far away from the special ed section as possible, because Howard had a habit of just staring at me or any other girls who sat down there, and who knows what else he was doing. Eek! I looked for Debby, but she wasn't here today! She was just there at lunch so why wasn't she here? Maybe she was skipping again; she had done that a lot freshman year. Now I was forced to sit by the special ed section, maybe I could hide from Howard. There was only one seat open by Maria Ganatisis, the school's stereotypical goth girl. She apparently was confused as to why I was sitting by her, after all, I look like any other blonde preppy girl.
"Hey, you're Maria, right?" I asked.
"Uh, yeah…" she muttered. I couldn't tell if she thought I was annoying or not.
"So…." I began, unsure of what to say, "Supposedly there's a talent show going on at the school." She looked at me with an unsure look.
"I know that, everyone does. It's being advertised over the whole freaking school." she said aggravated.
"Oh! Of course, how could I be so stupid!" I began. "So what, are you going to enter?" I asked. Boy, I bet I sounded so annoying, but I didn't want to just sit there in silence.
"No, but I wish I could." she uttered. Wow, didn't expect that response! "I wanted to sing something, but I'd get made fun of if I did it."
"What is it, I'm sure it can't be that bad." I said. She looked around a bit in embarrassment.
"The devil went down to Georgia." she stated. Another unexpected answer.
"Okay, it's about the devil." I started, "but other than that, I don't see anything wrong with it." She nodded at me, as if to say "okay."
"You're sure that no one will think it's wrong?" she finally asked.
"Hell, no! It's just a song!" I said back. Oops, I said another naughty word. I pulled out my jar and put my second dollar in it. She, like all of my other friends stared at my new swear jar. Then all the kids started to leave communion. Before Maria could leave I thought of an important question to ask her.
"Hey!" I called out; her head spun around to meet me. "You were put in special ed because you were a Satanist, right?" I asked, hoping she wouldn't get mad. She didn't yell at me, but she did get an awkward look on her face.
"Yeah, so what? Is it wrong?" she snapped before walking away. Okay, she was mad, but at least I know what'll happen if my secret is let out. If only she knew what my true motivation was, then she probably wouldn't have gotten pissed. Oh well, the rest of my day went really well; for about fifteen minutes. I was outside and so were Mary and Helen. Mary was doing the robot dance for whatever reason, and Helen was watching her.
"I was just thinking of some dance moves to impress Sky." she said to Helen as I walked up. "Oh hello again, Leigh, I was just practicing for the Talent show."
"Mary, Helen I don't know what on Earth makes you think that Sky will dump Evian because you win a talent show!" I barked. "No offence, but if you wanna take him from Evian-" I started to say before the evil cheerleader herself walked up to us.
"As president of the Catholic Cheerleaders against VD" she began. Oh crap, I could just tell something really bad was about to happen. "I have to tell you: Most people wouldn't say Superstar anymore, because you super-SUCK!" she and the rest of her friends giggled. Classic, the cheerleader bully… I can't believe I used to be friends with her.
"You shut up!" barked Helen.
"Oh, go shave your mustache, Helen. Or should we say Heraldo!" they giggled. That had done it for me! If she said one more word, I was prepared to beat her ass!
"Evian, you're a super-ASS!" yelled Helen in retaliation, but the cheerleaders had already walked away.
"Evian does have a super ass…" said a now sad Mary. I wouldn't just stand there and let that happen! If she could just walk up and pick on special ed students then I'd be much obliged to rip out one of her pigtails. I've done it to another girl before, but that's a story for another day. I have work to do now.
"Hold on, you two, I got this." I said as I left Mary and Helen. I ran up to Evian, and blocked their path. My hand was on my hips, and I gave her a disappointing look that would make any kid miserable.
"What are you doing, Leigh. This isn't about Sky again, is it?" Evian asked. I breathed heavily.
"How low do you have to be to make fun of two special ed girls? I barked. She scoffed at me.
"Hey, it isn't your problem, okay." she said.
"Yeah it is, Mary's my friend!" I snapped. She looked at me in shock.
"You're friends with that loser!" she said, but that ended up being her last words because as soon as "loser" slipped out of her lips I kicked her as hard as I could in the shin yelling "You bitch!" Her cheerleader friends screamed in shock. Me and Evian were locked in a brawl, and soon everyone was watching! I grabbed hold of one of her pigtails, and pulled at it. There was the sound of a rip, and her shrieking, as I held up a bundle of blond hair. Then, suddenly, One of the nuns pulled me off of her! We were pulled apart by two nuns, and forced to walk towards the school, where Father Ritley was waiting.
We were both sat in his office, where he looked at us with disapproval. Although I didn't mind because there was so much anger and hatred pouring off of me and Evian it could have turned the room into hell itself.
"Now, you two. I cannot say how disappointed I am in you; your behavior was simply unacceptable!" I tilted my head down in shame.
"What on earth prompted such an attack!" He asked in a strict tone. "Mrs. Bright, care to give an explanation?"
"Evian started it, she was being a total bitch!" I shouted.
"I was not! You just walked up to me and kicked me!" retaliated Evian.
"Yeah right! Don't shit me!" I shouted.
"BE QUIET!" roared father Ritley. The room was silent, until the door flung open to reveal another priest. It was father Leslie; an older man who was suspected to be going senile, he was always in a good mood, probably because of his senility.
"Ah, there you are, Father Ritley. I have here with me some forms from the Catholic Teenage magazine here, they'd like you to sign them." he said happily.
"Father Leslie, I don't have time to deal with this!" he shouted.
"Oh, don't worry, I'll handle it." he said while shooing father Ritley out of his seat. Ritley reluctantly took the papers and left, glancing back at us as he left; Father Leslie replaced him in his seat. I was a little less worried, because Father Leslie is the most lenient out of everyone, but I was still worried that Evian would get away without blame.
"Now what's the problem here?" he said. Me and Evian both shouted out our sides of the story at the same time; Leslie waved his arms, signaling us to settle down. "Okay, so you were fighting? Now you, Mrs. Uh… Graham, let's hear it from you."
"Father, I was minding my own business, walking with my friends, when Leigh came over and tried to start something with me!" Evian declared. "I don't know what I did to make her such a crazy bitch!"
"Oh please, don't give me that 'I don't know' bullshit!" I barked.
"Now, Mrs. Bright, let her finish." said Father Leslie.
"oh, that's all, father." she stated.
"Very well, now you." he said. I straightened my collar, and looked him straight in the eye, and said in my most reasonable tone:
"Father, Evian Graham had just gone up to two special ed kids, and harassed them, and quite frankly, I didn't like it. I went to tell her to apologize and she did even more things I didn't like. You have to punish her because she's an evil bully!"
"Am not!" barked Evian.
"Enough, girls." said Leslie. He was quiet for a moment, lost in thought, and then he finally said:
"Now seeing as I have no other option I'm…." he trailed off, trying to think of what to say next. "Er… Yes, I shall send letters home to your parents!" It seemed like a pretty half-assed reason, but as long as my parents knew I had done it for a good reason then I should be off the hook, as for Evian fate would tell if she got what she deserved. " You are both dismissed, go back to class and please just stay out of trouble." he said in a worried overtone. Evian did not get up as I did, but what did I care? I just left while she stayed there for some odd reason.
The rest of the day went by okay. It was after school that trouble really started. My walk from home went along normally, only when I entered my house there was father Ritley seated along with my parents. All of them bore disapproving and concerned looks. I stepped in and father Ritley sat up and told me to sit.
"What's this all about?" I asked nervously. My parents were still staring at me in disappointment. There was no way this could go well.
"What's it all about?" exclaimed my mother "What's this I hear about you being a Buddhist?
