It was the morning of my birthday. I woke up to the sound of someone tapping on my bedroom window. I groggily sat up and looked to see who it was. And I saw... Okay, what the heck is Donnie doing here so early? He smiled warmly at me and gave a little wave. I walked over, still in my pajamas, and opened the window.
"You do know there's a front door, right?" I joked.
"Where's the fun in that?" He laughed as he climbed in. He was hiding something behind his back. I looked at him curiously.
"Okay, what's that?" I questioned.
"What's what?" He said innocently, acting as if he had no idea what I was talking about.
"Spill it," I said, raising an eyebrow.
"Na-ah-ah," he said, shaking his finger 'no'. "Close your eyes and hold out your hands." I gave him a mock-suspicious look before doing what he said. I felt something soft on my hands. "Okay, open your eyes." I opened my eyes and saw... A stuffed leopard?! "Happy Birthday, Skyler!" Donnie said with a big smile.
"Aww!" I said gleefully. "It's so cute! Thank you so much!" I threw my arms around his neck. He wrapped his arms around my waist. "Thank you so much," I repeated.
"You should've seen what happened at the store," he said with a laugh. "My device malfunctioned for about ten seconds after I paid. You should've seen the looks on everybody's faces." I laughed.
I love him so much.
It was Monday morning. I was at school. And this guy just could not take a freaking hint!
"Hey, c'mon, babe," he said. I was walking to my locker. I was gonna sent this moron a message. "Now, now, sweetie, don't walk away from me."
I worked the combination. This bastard was getting irritated now. "Hey, I'm talkin' to ya, you little bi-" BAM! I slammed my locker door in his face.
"And the message is," I began, "'Beat it or I'll break your face.'" I slammed it closed and went on my way. Man, that guy was annoying. Well, time for Math. I headed to my Math class with Ms. Solis.
"To find X you need to...," Ms. Solis said. No one was paying any attention though. Everyone was talking about the upcoming dance. Guys were slipping notes to girls, girls were sending mind messages to guys they wanted to ask them out. I was going with Raph, of course. We didn't want to, but Emily's making us. Not only that, she's also making me wear heels! It's like she wants to kill me!
WAP! The teacher took a ruler and hit it against her desk. "Someone come up here and solve for X," she said in an irritated tone. No one got up to the board. Leo, who was a few desks away from me, was trying to figure it out. I sighed and stood up. I walked calmly to the board, picked up a marker, and looked at the problem.
3X+6=80. Easy. Okay, so 80-6=74. Now, 74\3=24.66666667. It repeats, of course. So, X=24.67. I turned around and walked back to my desk.
"Thank you, Miss Gonzalez," Ms. Solis said. "But, you forgot to show your work."
"Oops," I said with a shrug.
At lunch, everything was the same. Except for one little thing.
"Rent a tux," Emily told Raph for the tenth time.
"No," he said.
"Rent a tux."
"Rent a tux."
"No- OW!" That was when Emily kicked him.
"Raph, it's useless to argue with Emily," Sam said. "She is WAY too serious about this kinda stuff."
"Am not!" Emily said defensively.
Cat was just listening to music. Sam tapped her on the head. Cat took out one earbud and looked at her. "What?"
"Whatcha listenin' to?" Sam asked. Cat pulled out the cord, letting her music play for us to hear.
"We scream! We shout! We are the fallen angels! We scream! We shout! Whoa! Whoa-oh-aah-ooh-oh!" She put the cord back in. We all just looked at her.
"What?" She said. "I like Black Veil Brides, too. And, hey, it's not like it's screamo or somethin'."
"Okay," Mikey began. "You are just creepy."
We were at the dance, waiting for Cat to show up. What was taking so long?
"Where's Cat?" Skyler wondered.
Just then, my Shell-Cell rang. It was Cat.
"Cat?" I said.
"Hey, sorry I'm late," she said. "I, um, I had a little trouble. How the hell do girls walk in these things?!"
"What?" I asked.
"Heels. Hey, is Emily there? Could you tell her that I'm gonna kill her? Oh, and I'm here. I'll see ya in about two seconds." I hung up and looked around for her. There she was, trying to keep her balance. She's not used heels, apparently.
"Hey, Cat," I said. "Need a little help?"
She sighed, exasperated. "Hey, Ra- Whoa!" That's when she lost her balance and fell. I reacted in a flash and caught her. "Thanks, Raph," she said. "And forget these damn things!" She hissed, yanking them off her feet.
"What, why?!" Emily gasped.
"Because, I don't plan on breaking my ankle!" Cat snapped.
