I sat in my advanced English class writing a story for my teacher. I was listening to music on my black box. Our teacher dozed off a few minutes ago, but who am I to complain? There a few other people in this class, and one person just so happens to be Cole Black.
I've known Cole since forever. He's been my neighbor for quite some time too. We used to hang out until he bullies my brother. Grrr. We're 16 years old and he can't behave himself.
I started to bop a little in my seat. For some reason I get into music when I'm thinking to myself. I realized what I was doing and stopped dancing. I got bored of writing so I started to draw on my arms with a sharpie. Literally 5 minutes had passed and I could actually feel someone looking at me. I looked around and found Mr. Cole Black starring at me. Once he saw me look at him his eyes flashed away.
He has a crush on me, he has been since 7th grade when I told him that I liked his hair a lot. My friends noticed that he'd stare at me and even talk about me. I'd assume good things... I loved his jet black hair, and his eyes. UGH his eyes.
But whenever I thought of Cole, I thought of his evil sister, Helvetica, who was the devil from Hell. I hated her with a passion. She bullied my brother, Toe (Toby Thompson).
Well actually she had Cole do her dirty work. I felt bad for Cole. I wonder what he thinks about sometimes. The bell rang and I left to go to my locker. As I grabbed my backpack someone tapped the left side of my shoulder. I looked over but nobody was there.
"Hey." A voice said scaring me. It was just Cole, he smirked and I rolled my eyes. He then left for the bus and after I got my stuff I left for the bus also. Toby met up with me.
"Let's hurry." He said. Right before we reached the bus, Helvetica appeared in front of us. She was so short. I basically toward over her. Helvetica and Toby were both Freshman. I looked up to see Cole. "Your Toe's sister?" he asked. I nodded giving him a sarcastic look.
"Hey look Toe, a trash can." Helvetica smiled and motioned Cole and the "dumbells" to put Toby in the trash can. I couldn't really do anything. As Cole got done he walked onto the bus with Helvetica and I glared at him. I helped Toby out of the trash can.
"You okay?" I asked.
"Yeah," he replied. We got on the bus and looked for some seats. Cole and Helvetica were in the other row 4 seats ahead of us. Helvetica tried to trip Toby, but I grabbed the back of his backpack preventing him from falling.
I was looking out the window while Toby sat beside me with Laser, Loogie, and Lug behind me. Laser was my age and Loogie and Lug were Toby's age. Toby didn't really like talking to anyone. I've known Laser, Loogie, and Lug for a while now. For some reason they talked about Loogie's chocolate addiction. I rolled my eyes. I looked over at Cole who was starring at me. Then he gave me a wink and I blushed. I took out my book so he wouldn't notice. But it was too late he started to laugh while smirking.
Toby hated that we were neighbors with the Blacks. Toby, me, Lug, Loogie, Laser, Helvetica, and Cole all got off. I sighed and started to walk when I felt someone grab my arm. It was Cole again. He was smirking.
"What?" I asked a bit annoyed.
"We should hang out." he stated.
"I don't think so," even though I kind of really wanted to. He shrugged his shoulders and backed he walked away he tripped. I started to laugh as he stood up and brushed himself off seeing if anyone else saw that. I walked up to the door where Toby was standing.
"What was that all about?" he asked.
"Cole being stupid," Toby shrugged and we walked inside. I went straight to my room and I started on my homework, but I couldn't concentrate. All I could think about was Cole. I sighed and opened my window. I could see Toby playing cards by himself. All of a sudden our sister, Stacy, pulled up.
"Playing with you imaginary friends again?" she asked.
"No." Toby said.
"You're so weird." She then whispered 'freak' under her breath. I rolled my eyes. Toby doesn't have have a lot of friends. I was truly his only best friend.
Toby asked, "I'm not weird. Am I weird?" he was talking to himself. "Oh, who asked you?" I rolled my eyes again and went outside.
"Whatchya doin'?" I asked.
"Nothin'. Playin' cards."
"By yourself?" He nodded.
"Can I play?" He looked up and said yes. "'K, you'll have to teach me." We were having a good time. I didn't want him to feel alone.
I made dinner for everyone. Mom and dad were busy on their black box's. This wasn't unusual.
"Hey mom," I said.
"Today I got an A+ on my Algebra test."
"Huh-uh." she replied. I rolled my eyes."That's great honey. Brush your teeth, eat your vegetables." I gave a questionable look.
"Oh," I continued, "I got my tongue pierced and uh got a tattoo." That grabbed their attention.
"What?" dad said.
"I was kidding, can you guys take like a breather?" My parents sighed then my mom said,
"We're sorry honey, Mr. Black has us doing a very big project."
"Okay," I relied. They went back to their 'project' while Toby and I spoke to each other.
Stacy then walked in and threw her black box on the floor.
"Having trouble with your box?" mom asked.
"Yes! No, I just broke up with my boyfriend." she said.
"So? Isn't he like 24?" I asked.
"No!" She replied.
"Aren't you like 18 or somethin'?" Toby asked, "shouldn't you move out?"
"Oh shut up!" she stormed out of her room and slammed her door. I gave him a high five. We washed up and went off to bed. I changed into my pj's. Right as I was about to get into bed my black box rang. I walked over tho the box which had was a text from Cole.
You know who this is? ~Cole
Yeah...It's Cole. It clearly says Cole at the end of your texts... How did you get my # anyway?
OH..I have my sources ~Cole
