"I have an announcement to make!" Lucas announced.
It's been two days since Paul and Drew warned all the male population of our school away from Leaf. Since then all the boys shave stayed well away from her, especially whenever one of the two boys around her, one of them always are. The only ones not staying away from her are Lucas's followers. I think they're doing it to annoy Paul and Drew, and it works, but the boys that do go near Leaf usually end up with black eyes.
"It appears that our new kid Paul, is in love with Leaf," he said smugly.
Gasps were heard throughout the cafeteria as everyone looked at Paul and Leaf.
Leaf had a hand over her mouth trying to hold in giggles as Paul slapped his forehead and muttered to himself. Drew was laughing his head off and soon Leaf joined him.
Paul stood up and turned to face Lucas, facing away from me.
I admired back muscles as he started to speak.
I shook my head, trying to clear my mind of the dirty thoughts I was having of Paul.
"If you had stayed, you would have heard what I said," Paul stated.
Lucas smirked at him and gestured to his cronies.
"They were there Paul, they are witnesses," he said smugly.
Paul sighed and shook his head.
"I love Leaf, but not like that," Paul stated.
"Then how?" Ursula asked.
"Brother sister, I love her as if she were my sister. The same with Drew, but I love him as my brother," Paul growled.
"You...idiot!" Leaf exclaimed.
Paul just shrugged and sent her a smug look.
"It doesn't matter if they know, who cares," Paul said.
"Samuel and Roger care," Drew growled.
I watched closely as Paul tensed.
"They have found us," he grunted.
"What!" Drew and Leaf shrieked.
Paul took a price of paper and chucked it at the two.
Drew read it over twice and paled, his face contorted into fear.
He dropped it on the table.
"How?" He asked hoarsely.
"They were tracking me," Paul said quietly.
"Everyone go back to your lunch!" He snarled at the rest of the students before taking his seat beside me again.
"Who?" I asked.
"Our dads are psychos, blamed us for the deaths of our mothers," Leaf said quietly.
Paul glared at her but she ignored it.
"What happened?" I asked her softly.
I placed my hand on her shoulder to comfort her.
"They killed them, they shot them and blamed us," Leaf burst into tears.
Paul was out of his seat and besides Leaf in a second.
"Hey Leafy, tis over, they'll never get us again, I promise. They'll have to go through me to get to you and Drew," Paul held her tightly against him.
I smiled at how much Paul cared about Leaf. I was sure that he loved her as a sister.
I watched as Paul glanced over at Drew, as if making sure that he was okay. Drew nodded at him and Paul turned his attention back to the crying Leaf, whispering into her ear.
I wonder what happened that made their fathers turn psychotic.
