Side 6
In Homeroom a few days – of hiding from Nathan and the rest of the Champagne Gang – later, the juniors were giving presentations on the topic of 'Teenagers in Today's Society'. Amy Norris went first; she used cardboard cutouts as props and talked about brand endorsements and the influence of movie stars. Jake Black was next, with his presentation on the absence of Biblical knowledge in teenagers' minds, which made Jason Towne, a Jewish freshman, so angry that he walked out of class. Roxanne Cartwright followed, and the room fell respectfully silent as she flicked on a switch and the image of a girl in cargoes and a Hawthorne Heights t-shirt filled the screen set up next to the blackboard.
In my seat, I stiffened, my stomach clenching suddenly as I recognized the girl on the screen. It was Hadley. My stepsister.
Crap.
  "This is one of today's teens, who I observed over the week as a sort of survey," Roxanne said, her thro…

I wouldn't have overheard them if I hadn't left my Bio notebook in my English class. But I had, and my first Bio test was coming up; I didn't intend to bomb it. So, even though I was already out of the school building and on my way to freedom, I turned around and hurried back inside. I would have charged straight into the room if Roxanne's voice hadn't floated out at that precise moment and stopped me in my tracks.
  "Okay, what do you think you're doing?" Roxanne was demanding.
  "You jealous?" said Nathan's voice.
  "Of that – creature?" Roxanne said contemptuously. "I think not. But I don't get it. What on earth possessed you to ask her to sit with us for lunch?"
  "Oh, come on, you can't possibly be that dim," said Nathan incredulously. "You don't think I like her, do you?"
  "Well, then, you want to have sex with her. Fine. But why her? Th…

*Lesson In Love 101* Chapter 3: This Kiss *Niyotrinity©*    "It isn't your day to call," I said into my cell phone, feeling my mouth stretch into a small smile.   "I know," said Curtis. I could hear the grin in his voice. "But I was getting impatient, girl." I wrapped my arms around myself and bounced on my tiptoes, feeling disgustingly happy. So what if the first few days of Thornton had been a horror show, and I was currently on my way to school again? Curtis loved me, we'd been talking regularly for a week now, and although I still hadn't gotten up the nerve to bring up death and my last day in Manhattan and the difficult parts of our relationship, at least I knew what was going on in his life. "I'm glad you did. I was getting sad about my second week."   "Oh, yeah, you've finished a week at that fancy school now," Curtis recalled, almost as if he'd forgotten…

TEAR FROM WITHIN
‘Start!’, was the commanding voice I heard almost immediately I got the question paper and answer sheet. Though like a river my pen delightfully flow in the direction of the current coming from my hand, as blown  from my brain, which is as a result of my sleepless  night. I froze at a point and  what started as a drop became an ocean and what was just  a little whimper became a yowl, as the grief I can bear no more. Probably because I am just a child with a feeble heart and so much believe in her country. Tell me, what pain is more baneful than that of a broken heart. My heart is broken and I bleed heavily because there is a tear from within.
My teacher came to me. ‘What is the problem? Don’t you know the answer? Don’t worry...’ But just before he could finish his statement I screamed for I believe his words are vile to my ear. This made everyone in the examination hall worried. Every pen was dropped and every eyes focused on me as every heart was filled with fear. c…

*Side 4* "So how was your first day?" Jazz asked as she mopped up the counter at Big Happy Family.   "Fine," I said briefly, not wanting to get into the gory details.   "Fine?" Jazz placed her free hand on her hips and raised her eyebrows. "That's all you're going to tell me?"   "Well, that's what it was," I persisted. I didn't trust Jazz enough to tell her the entire story of how, on my very first day, I'd managed to break up one of the most powerful couples on campus and extract a death threat from the Queen of the school. Sure, I liked my bubbly, yellow-haired coworker enough. But it wasn't like Jazz herself volunteered any personal information, so why should I? "I liked my creative writing class, and my homeroom staff supervisor – "   "Listen to you, Summer. I liked my creative writing class. As if that's what makes or breaks a life.&quo…
