There was something wrong with him.
Bailey pinched him hard on the arm this morning during class, catching him looking absent-mindedly out into mid-air. It was the third time he couldn't pay attention to his teachers, the twelfth time he didn't want to apologize or even say anything to Bailey this past two weeks.
As soon as the bell rang, she stretched her arm over and felt his forehead. Are you ill? She asked, her brows wrinkled in worries. I don't think so, he replied.
She might have gone on about him not having sufficient sleep due to all their sneak-out dates at night, and reached to a conclusion that they should postpone their meeting that night, which he really didn't quite listen to her from word to word.
Maybe he wasn't listening at all. He absorbed the vague information automatically all the same, like he had done during the last few lessons.
No after-curfew date with Bailey tonight.
Somewhere deep inside him, a wriggling sensation called 'relief' caught him happily. He felt guilty inwardly at the same time. A loud noise was banging on his eardrums at that point, making him deaf. He frowned, bit his bottom lips and turned around to check the source of the nuisance.
It was Zack, again. He was not mad, not even a little bit, again.
Bailey fired a fully charged disciplinary speech towards Zack and Woody about the importance of a quiet, undisturbed environment for patients, as in her poor Cody. 'Who's sick?' Asked Zack with a lifted eyebrow and mockingly curved lips. 'No one,' cried Cody, putting two thumbs up to verify his full spirits.
Zack suddenly moved over to his side, grabbed his arm and pretended to feel his pulse. The man is still alive! He shouted, patted his twin on the back hard and gave him a loud peck on the forehead, before he ran off with Woody and Marcus out of the classroom.
Told you guys to keep it down! Shouted Bailey.
Touching his forehead, Cody simply couldn't hear a thing.
I've always wanted to try ZxC, but never plucked up the courrage. Please tell me how I did after you read all of the chapters! Thanks very much!
