This is my first Billy and Mandy story...ENJOY

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was another boring day in Endsville as Billy and Mandy made their way towards the high school.

Mandy, who was now 16, wore a purple top with black fish net sleeves, a short black skirt, and a pair of black combat boots. Mandy's hair, which had grown a Little past her shoulders, was currently pulled back into a high ponytail with a skull pendant.

Mandy stared angrily at the sidewalk as she listened to Billy hum, clenching and unclenching her hands with each new rhythm Billy changed to. Finally his humming ceased and Mandy let out a frustrated sigh, glancing over to find out what had finally distracted him. Much to her dissatisfaction Billy was staring at her, his mouth open slightly in a goofy smile as he drooled.

Billy's clothing had hardly changed over the years, he still wore his blue and white stripped shirt and a pair of jeans. His messy red hair was no longer hidden beneath a hat and, other than the fact that he had gotten taller, he really hadn't filled out that much. The same, however, could not be said of Mandy.

She growled, noticing Billy's eyes wander up and down her body until finally settling on her well developed breast. She had been catching him more and more lately staring at her like that, and it was really beginning to tick her off. Mandy figured it was just a result of his male hormones; after all, the two had been friends for a long time and she was certain he didn't like her like that. Male hormones, however, did not give him an excuse to stare...and right now Mandy had had enough.

As if it were no big deal, and really it wasn't, she punched him in the face.

"Do you have a death wish?" Mandy asked calmly, though her eyes were narrowed.

Billy shook his head, wiped away some drool, and then looked up at her.

"Did you say somethin' Mandy?" He asked with his usual stupid grin, rubbing his sore jaw, though not giving it much thought.

Mandy gritted her teeth, not really sure if Billy was playing dumb or if he really didn't know what he had just been doing.

"If I see you stare at me like that again, I swear I'll rip out your eyes and replace them with tennis balls," Mandy threatened, "Understand?"

"Not really," Billy replied scratching his head. "Who where we talking about again"

Mandy sighed resisting the urge to hit him again.

"Nevermind," She replied bitterly.

"Oh LOOK!" Billy yelled pointing in front of him towards the school. "Do you see what I think I see but aren't entirely sure really exists right now?"

"If you mean the school...then yeah," Mandy replied dully.

"Wooohoooo," Billy exclaimed, "I just remembered that I've been looking forward to this day my whole life...or at least since last semester."

"And that would be because?"

"One word...PEP RALLY!" Billy yelled emphasizing the words by pumping his fist in the air.

Mandy groaned.

"I hate pep rallies," She complained. It was just another pathetic excuse for the student body to over exagerate the importance of school spirit.

"Yeah but you hate everything," Billy replied cheerfully, "So it doesn't really matter."

Mandy glared over at him as he stared off into space.

"You're an idiot," She replied.

"THANK YOOOOUUU," Billy said laughing as they stepped into the school yard.

"Well well well...," Came a voice in front of them. "If it isn't the little looooser couple."

"Mindy," Mandy darkly replied, glaring up at the girl. "Don't you have anything better to do?"

Mindy smirked as she flipped her long hair behind her. She laid her pom poms down on the ground and placed one of her hands on her hips.

"Oh Mandy of course I do," She replied grinning. "But I always have time for you and your stupid little boyfriend."

Billy her boyfriend? The thought sent shivers down her spine.

"He's not my boyfriend," Mandy replied calmly...she would never give Mindy the satisfaction of seeing her get mad about the subject.

"Oh yes...that's right," Mindy cheerfully replied, though the evil smirk remained. "Not even a total idiot like Billy would go out with an ugly freak like you."

Mandy balled her hands into fists ready to strike when..

"Oh hey Mindy," Billy replied, "When did you get here?"

Both Mandy and Mindy exchanged glances at one another, the tense moment between them broken.

"Is he really that dense?" Mindy asked.

"Oh yeah," Mandy slowly replied her previous anger forgotten as she turned to her friend. "Come on, Billy, lets go."

"Okay then," He replied turning to wave good bye. "See ya at the pep rally Cindy!"

"It's Mindy!" She yelled as the two walked off. "MINDY!"

"She really needs to Get Over It," Mandy said as she opened her locker.

"Over what?" Billy asked confused. "Oh oh...let me guess...is it a cow?"

Mandy ignored him as she reached for her books.

"I swear if she says anything at today's pep rally I'm going to..."

"Punch her face, pull her hair, claw out her eyes, conjure a plague onto her house and make ever waking moment of her life filled with horrible horrible pain,"

"Yep," Mandy replied closing her locker.

"COOOOL," Billy replied, "Can I watch?"

"Sure...why not," Mandy said.

She looked over at Billy and noticed he didn't have any books.

"Aren't you going to get your stuff?"

"Nope," Billy replied. "I decided I don't need my book to fail."
"How true." Mandy replied.

"Yo guys ...whats up?" Irwin asked walking over towards them.

He had grown tall and skinny ...he wore a pair of baggy pants a yellow and white shirt and lots of bling bling.

"Howdy Irwin," Billy replied, "We were just...um...what were we doing again?"
Mandy sighed.

"Hey Irwin." Mandy greeted him in a bored and highly uninterested tone.
"Hello my love," he replied dreamily ...earning a sharp glare from Mandy and much to her surprise Billy too.

"How many times do I have to hurt you Irwin?" Mandy asked.

"Um..," He paused looking nervous. "My bad Yo...no need for violence."

"That's what I thought," Mandy replied, "Now if you don't mind I'd like to get to class before.."

BEEEEEEEPP

"Perfect," Mandy mumbled, "Now we're late."

"Ah it's no big deal Yo," Irwin replied. "It's not like they'll do anything."

"DETENTION" The teacher yelled as the three of them walked into the class room.

Mandy glared over at Irwin.

"Well...except for that," He replied his head lowering. "Sorry guys."

"It's no sweat," Billy replied, "I gets detention all the time."

"Yeah...but I don't," Mandy said. "I swear you'll both pay for this."

"Aw come on Mandy," Billy replied as they took their seats next to each other. "It only lasts like forever."

Mandy growled at him as she opened her text book

"Besides...," Billy went on smiling as he looked forward. "As long as your there it can't be all bad."

Mandy raised an eye brow at the comment as Billy continued to stare off into space. She shook her head...he probably didn't even realize what he said...then again Mandy had to admit he wasn't nearly as dumb as he use to be. She looked over at him as he picked his nose with his pencil.

'Ew' she thought with a disgusted frown.

Billy may not be as dumb as he use to be, but that still wasn't saying much...he would always be Billy.

She flinched slightly when Billy sucked the pencil up his nose. He didn't seem to mind much and she knew that he'd probably sneeze later and end up poking someones eye out.

"Ahem...pay attention class," The teacher announced glaring specifically at Mandy. "No need to let your minds, or rather your eyes, wander."

Mandy jumped slightly as she directed her attention to the front of the class...how long had she been staring at Billy? Obviously long enough for the teacher to notice, and now everyone else in the class as well. She blushed slightly as she raised her book up to cover her face...was she embarrassed...no that couldn't be it...Mandy doesn't get embarrassed.

"Psst...Mandy," She heard Billy whisper leaning over slightly in his seat.

Mandy growled and tried to ignore him along with the stares from her class mates.

"pssssst...Mandy," He tried again. "It's me Billy."

Her eyes narrowed behind her book and her grip tightened.

"Pssst...Mandy," Billy continued, "Hey...hey...hey...hey..."

"WHAT!" Mandy yelled slamming her book on her desk and glaring at Billy.

"What do you want?!!"

...if anyone wasn't staring at her before, they certainly were now.

Billy blinked as if confused as to why she had yelled.

"Everyone's staring at you," He replied simply.

Mandy's left eye twitched slightly.

"Ahem...Mandy," The teacher asked raising an eye brow. "Is there a problem?"

"Actually there is," Mandy replied trying to contain her rage. "I...I need to go to the bath room."

The teacher seemed slightly surprised.

"Yes...well..." She began adjusting her glasses. "Normally I wouldn't mind but, considering you were tardy to class, I suspect you had plenty of time to do your business before."

"It's...that time of the month," Mandy replied gritting her teeth from the embarrassing lie.

"Oh well that explains alot," She replied, "You go right ahead and take all the time you need."

Mandy stood up taking her books with her as she had no intention on returning to class. She glanced back at Billy as she opened the door... he was confused as usual but smiled and waved as she left.

"Yo dawg," Irwin whispered from the seat behind Billy. "Whats her problem?"

"Must be diarrhea," Billy whispered. "I gots it real bad one time."

Irwin gave him a disgusted look before nodding and leaning back into his seat.

Billy frowned slightly as he looked at the door Mandy had just exited...suddenly this class didn't seem worth attending.

Billy wondered for a moment why he had been feeling so strange around Mandy lately... 'maybe gas'...no it wasn't that...he shook his head never giving anything to much thought...maybe he'd ask Grim about it when he got back home.

He shrugged as he looked down at his desk.

"Hey...where's my pencil?"
