24, 16, 13. Click. Alex Santiano smiled as her locker opened. She noticed Harper, her best friend, walking by.

"Oh, hey Harper." She greeted.

Harper stopped walking. "Hey Alex! What's up?"

"Nothing much. Just getting some pizza out of my locker."

"You have pizza in your locker?" Harper gave her a confused glance.

"Yeah, you want some?" Alex offered, holding out a piece of pepperoni.

"Uh, no thanks." She paused for a moment. "Hey, who are you hoping to get as a partner for the history project?"

"Honestly, I don't really care. Anyone would be better than my partner last time." She shuddered. "Greasy Gus."

Harper laughed. "Oh, that was hilarious! That dude never stops eating. Literally, like I've never seen him not eating."

"I know, it was awful… This time, I think I wanna have Jake as a partner."

"The new guy Jake?"

"Yeah, him. He's pretty cute."

"Yeah, but you don't even know him."

"Well, I'd get to know him if we were partners."

"I guess so."

"Well who do you want, Harper?"

"I don't care, really. I like making friends with everyone."

Alex rolled her eyes. "Oh, come on. There has to be someone you don't want."

"Well… Yeah. I definitely don't want Justin Russo."

"Ugh, that guy's a total douche bag."

"Even though I don't like that word, I can't disagree." Harper reasoned.

Alex sighed. "Well, I'll see you in history then."

"Okay, bye." As Harper walked away, Alex started thinking. If she got stuck with Justin as a partner, she would die. And that was barely an exaggeration.

Everyone knew Justin was a total player, and could never think of a girl as anything other than a toy. But since Justin had a way with words, he could almost always get a girl to do whatever he wanted. Alex was pretty sure she could resist him if he did end up being her partner, but she didn't want to take the risk.

I'm probably worried about nothing, Alex reasoned. The chances of me and Justin being partners are like 1 in 30.

Alex took a deep breath. She would find out soon.

Later That Day:

"Harper, Jenny, you are partners. John, McKenzie, you two are partners." Mr. Johnson was reading off partners for the history project. "Natalie, Jake, you are partners." Aww, dang it. Jake was taken. He kept reading more names and then, finally he said "Alex, your partner is-" Alex held her breath "-Justin."

"What?" Alex whispered to herself. Seriously, out of everyone in the class, she was with Justin Russo. The biggest player in the whole school.

"Now everyone," Mr. Johnson continued. "For the last 5 minutes of class, you can get acquainted with your partner and brain storm ideas. Alex sighed. Here we go.

Justin walked up to her. "You're Alex, right?"

Alex nodded.

"That's a pretty name."

"Alex is a guy's name."

Justin was taken aback. "Well, yeah, but-"

"Justin, stop. Look, I know your reputation. You just make girls feel special and then you sleep with them. And when they least expect it, you leave them and make them feel like crap. I'm not gonna let you do that to me. So stop flirting, okay?"

Justin looked really surprised. "Uh… Okay. But like it or not, you're stuck with me for the next two weeks while we do our project. So maybe we should get to know each other better."

"I don't want to get to know you. I already know enough about you. More than I want to, actually."

"Alex, look, I don't know why you hate me so much, but-"

"Because you're a douche!"

"Whoa, whoa, whoa- you don't even know-"

RING! RING! RING! The bell cut Justin off.

Alex quickly stood up and practically ran into the hallway.

This was gonna be a great two weeks.
