"What do mean Javier apologized?" Cece practically fainted. "AND WHAT THE HECK IS 'HE EVEN INVITED ME TO LUNCH' SUPPOSED TO MEAN?"
"I mean he kept bothering me the whole day yesterday and I don't even know why." I groaned as I stuffed my bag in my gym locker to the right of Cece's, which was next to Gail's, which was next Nina's. It was a miracle that we all had PE class together, along with English; even Kai was here, just not here-here because, well, this was the girl's locker room.
"But WHY?" Cece groaned out and sighed, slamming her locker door shut. "What possessed that man to be like that all of a sudden?" Nina added.
"Honestly, I have no clue." I spoke as I crouched down and tied my shoe lace.
"He probably must've hit his head or something." Gail scoffed a chuckle. "But whatever it is, it seems fishy so don't let your guard down, Lilac." she added makig me smile.
"Don't worry, I won't."
"Okay, gather 'round children." our bald PE teacher called from the middle, right side of the gymnasium as we bunched up in front of him. He motioned for us to sit down and sit down we did.
"Alright, today we're going to do a physical fitness test where we get your physical statistics, heart beat measurement, etc. So, first off, get a partner, measure your height and weight then once everyone's finished, we're gonna take a jog and see who here is jelly on legs and who is an aspiring Usain Bolt."
As our teacher, Mister Abner explained and discussed our activity further, from the corner of my eye, I noticed a pale, uninterested looking man.
My jaw dropped, "We have PE with Dae-Hyun?" I whispered to Gail who then turned to the direction I was looking.
She nodded and sighed, "Not only that, but the Devil Duo is here too."
"Do you mean the twins that freaking dragged me to the three idiots?"
Gail agreed with pursed lips, "The devils themselves."
"Right, so get your butts up and get moving!" Mr. Abner clapped.
We got up and huddled up by the weighing scale, Cece and Nina got the luxury of going first. "What goes on ladies?"
Kai greeted with a smile.
"Lilac, I'd like you to meet Thomas Sato." he introduced a tall, dark haired guy that had a smile on his face. "Tommy, this is Lilac Dahlberg."
"Nice to meet you," I extended a hand. He took it and shook it.
Kai snickered, "How formal and proper." I glared at him then hit his shoulder.
Thomas chuckled, "I don't mean to be rude or anything, but I am told I sometimes am too blunt. Anyway, it's no secret, what the kings did to you," he spoke, instantly making my cheeks heat up, "And I just want to say that since your a friend of Kai's, I am a friend of yours. Since I do not believe in oppression of the weak and that we should help the lesser, if you ever need me to help beat someone up for you, I'd gladly do so."
I chuckled in disbelief and caught Thomas' arm, "Thomas, there's no need for anyone to beat up anyone."
He smiled sweetly, "Just call me Tommy, everyone does."
Gail scoffed out a chuckle, "Well, Tommy, don't go goo-goo eyes on my girl. I've called dibs on her and fully intend to keep her by my side."
I laughed, "Eww, what pathetic person calls dibs on other people?"
After finishing up with our person data, Nina and Cece joined in our goofy conversations with Kai and Tommy. And when everyone finished all their data up, our gym teacher called up round.
"Okay, enough chit-chat, get your partners and line up; you're going to go for a 10 minute jog." Mr. Abner stated, making half of the class groan.
"Geez, freaking PE class, am I right?" Gail mumbled by my shoulder in complain.
I turned to her with a soft smile and shrugged, "I actually like jogging."
She looked at me as if I grew another head. After, she snatched Nina's and Cece's shirts, pulling them towards her, "Girls, girls, I think Lilac may be a crazy alien."
Nina raised a brow, "Gail, it's true that not everyone likes wearing thigh high boots."
Cece smirked at that and Gail groaned, "Hey! It's sexy, but I'm referring to the fact he likes jogging."
Cece and Nina raised their upper lips in disgust. I laughed, "Hey, everyone's different."
"Yeah, but you're a demon child, demon child." Gail groaned, following it up with a laugh.
Just then a whistle was heard and we soon started jogging in the normal slow pace.
"I thought you liked jogging, why are you so slow?" Gail asked.
I rolled my eyes playfully, "Okay, first, we're supposed to jog by partners, second, we're supposed to jog not race."
Gail huffed as both our hearts started to race. After the first minute passed, Gail started slowing down but I however kept the pace.
I at some parts slowed down for her at the moment she crouched down to catch her breath I turned to her and stopped, only to be shooed away, "Go on without me," she panted over-dramatically.
I chuckled and jogged towards Kai and Tommy who just jogged passed Cece, Nina, and a few other people.
"Well, well, well, if it isn't Lilac Dahlberg joggin' alone." Kai spoke with a chuckle. "Let me guess, Gail dropped out on ya?" I nodded at his question.
"I guess now the question is, can you keep up with me?" Tommy spoke making Kai turn to him with knit brows.
"Don't you mean us?" the one with the longer hair spoke.
Tommy scrunched his face up in a laugh, "Kai likes to think he's all that but his stamina's not as enduring as mine." he winked making both Kai and I groan at his innuendo.
"Eyes on the road, bucko." I noted. Tommy chuckled, "Yes ma'am."
And so slowly, the rest of the class started slowing their pace, leaving only a few of us left running. Finally, Kai caved in and slowed to a stop to catch his breath.
"Monsters!" he called out for me and Tommy, only making us turn back at him and laugh. I stuck my tongue out at him as Kai then joined in with Cece, Nina, and Gail who jogged unfairly slow, or more like walked dramatically.
"So, are you trying to tell me you're an athlete?" Tommy panted, making me turn to him.
"Nah, I mean..." I huffed, "I did ballet when I was younger, I guess that increased my stamina, but it's mostly..." I sighed in a chuckle, finally losing some breath, "sorry," I spoke in between. "It's mostly because my mom, dad, and older brother like to jog early in the morning to clear their minds."
Tommy chuckled, "Impressive."
"But are you trying to tell me you're an athlete?"
"Finally you caught on!" Tommy jumped and continued on with a laugh. I joined in his giggles and asked, "What sport?"
"Like, foot plus ball or rugby?"
"Foot plus ball."
"Oh, really? That's great! I freaking love football."
"Really?" Tommy turned to me, sweat trailing down his temple. "Now that you say that, our game is two weeks from now. Do you wanna watch and maybe be my cheerleader?"
I smiled, "Nah, I'll go with you but just to cheer for the other team."
He gasped, "You wound me."
After the eight minute mark passed, Mr. Abner started blowing his whistle in anger over the few students who had nerve to sit down and rest. "What are you doing? Go! Go! Go! You still have a two minutes left!" he scolded.
It was only then I noticed that aside from Tommy and I, there were three others that were going in the same pace, and those were the twins and the Korean king.
Then all at once, Tommy huffed sharply and slowed down. I turned back at him, seeing he was only tying his shoe lace. "Go on, I'll just catch up, you turtle." I chuckled at him and kept on jogging.
"Ahh, alone at last."
I turned to the voice that spoke that. "I didn't think you'd last this long, Dahlberg." Dae-Hyun spoke with some sort of double meaning. I ignored his remarks and slightly increased my pace.
He laughed at that, "Did you know that, on top of being a master martial artist, I also have a first place trophy for track and field?"
I finally looked at the pale man whose face was shining due to his sweat.
He smirked and continued, "I like doing things that challenge me."
I blinked and pursed my lips.
"I like to test my limits." he turned over his shoulder, "And above all, I love to win." with that he sprinted away, catching up with the twins in front, just as Tommy suddenly came running beside me.
"What did he tell you?" Tommy asked, eyeing Dae-Hyun's back as if he could poke holes on it if he stared hard enough. I scoffed, "How much of an moron he is."
"Sit down before the devil comes!" I whisper-yelled to Gail who was pacing around the room in order to get a good signal on her phone.You are correct if you assumed that we were currently in history class and the teacher of the hour was, indeed, Mr. Pozwich, the lord of darkness himself.Gail huffed and sprang over to me, her seat being to the left of mine after all. She huffed and sat on her chair, violently tapping the screen of her phone where the resend button was. She cussed and dropped the object in frustration, absolutely done with trying.I chuckled just as she groaned."Shut up, I'm waiting for a really important text, okay.""Ooooh, is it from your boyfriend?" I teased.She narrowed her eyes at me and pushed my shoulder, "No. It's from my mom."I wiggled my eyebrows, "Course it is."Just as she glared, all the sound and all the life in the room died down and along came our favorite tea
I was now in English class, sitting next to Kai, who I also was chatting up while we did our first seatwork. The chatting particularly revolved around the fact I was going to be doing a group project with Dae-Hyun at will be doing it his house."At least Andy will be there. He would never let that jerk do something to you." Kai grumbles.I raise a brow and purse my lips, "Is Dae-Hyun really that bad?""Lilac," he groans out as he turned his body to me, "How can you even give him the benefit of the doubt after what he did to you?"I groan and curl my arms together, resting my head on them, "I don't know, I just... I don't work like that. I'm hopelessly optimistic sometimes."Kai sighs, "You wanna know somethin'? I resent him most.""Why?"He chuckled dryly, "Why? Well, because he and I used to be friends at one point in time."My jaw dropped; I nearly fainted. "You, you in all your cute sunshine, used to be friends with people that go around pouring vinegar on other people?"He clenched
Andy and Daehyun were still staring each other down when a group of voice broke out, "I told you, I didn't leave the -".Andy, Dae-Hyun and I turned to the source, surprisingly gazing upon Javier, Marcus, and a girl with designer pumps. Both them and us having gotten silenced by the sight of each other, it was yet another voice that spoke up which brought us back to reality.I couldn't understand what he said since it was in Korean.Just then, Dae-Hyun's older brother walks off to where he should be going. I watch as he does."Hyung, were you talking about me?" Javier muttered questioningly, half-mockingly, I would think. From what limited things I know of Korean, I think the word Javier said meant olde brother. he groaned, apparently knowing well how his name is spoken in Korean.Dae-Hyun turned to the guy and smirked, but then suddenly his face dropped, "What are you three doing here?""What is she doing here?" Marcus countered and nodded my way.Dae-Hyun scoffed in a chuckle, "It's
"WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKEUPWAKEUPWAKEUUUUPPP!" a rude, tiny voice shouted and shook me in my bed. I, in turn, whinced and groaned loudly, begrudingly opening my eyes and seeing my sister and brother sprawled on me bed with annoyingly large smiles on their faces."TULILA YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR STINKY BUTT OFF YOUR BED, IT'S LATE!" my sister called, bouncing on the mattress, making me roll over to see what time it was."GAHH, IT'S 5:46 IN THE MORNING!""Yeah, but you have to get reaaaadddy!" Periwinkle dragged out, resting her head on my stomach, making me sigh at her cuteness, "Periwinkle, it's a Saturday!""But," another voice spoke, "remember how we promised we'd take her jogging with us after we moved and got all sorted out?" Roux stated with a smirk that meant, 'if I don't sleep, neither do you.'I groaned in remembrance and pushing my sister softly away, rolling the other side, "Five more minutes.""Nope. We gunna go NOOOW!" Periwinkle growled in all her cuteness. She
Guess what, Abigail Alonzo abandoned me and called in sick, therefore I am left to battle the horrors of Langley Academy on my own for today and tentatively tomorrow. Yay!What's worse was I had class today that held students I do not know, but they all seemed to know me well, judging by the judging looks on their faces. What the hell, what did I do to them?Pulling out my phone, I texted Cece, Nina, and Kai:SOS, I AM SO ALONE SCIENCE!!!! ):Fiery Fox (Nina, just because she's a red head): ahhh, sci class is supposed to be lonely :pThe True Queen Empress (Cece, who found Andy's nickname for me so amusing she dubbed herself that, on my phone that is): WAIT A LITTLE LONGER, IT'S ALMOST LUNCH TIME BABY!!!!!!!!!!My Favorite Contact <3 (Kai, whose name he picked himself. Gosh he can be so full of himself): DO YOU WANT ME TO STEAL YOU AWAY??? SCREW DETENTIONI laughed at all their replies and turned b
There were two voices speaking Russian. "I swear, mama oughtta slap you silly for that." "Sashka, I swear, if you are stupid enou-" the voice halted his reply to the similar sounding one. "Is that..." "Lilac?" a voice questioned and the gentle touch of a hand on my shoulder suddenly arrived. I didn't move and had stopped crying when this happened. "What should we do?" "We should carry her to-" "I'm fine." I blurted out, cutting off the words of whoever spoke, raising my head from my arms where it was tucked. The two, who were Sashka and Mishka, which is which, I didn't know for certain, seeing my definitely blotchy face, knit their brows and had their expressions soften. "What's wrong?" the one to my right asked. "Do you need us to do anything?" the one on my left added, his softened features hardening with anger. I sighed and nodded, looking between them in confusion. "No, no. I'm... just..
"Tommy!" Kai called out, waving at the guy with a busted lip and a grazed cheek, beckoning him to come over and sit with us at our lunch table. It had been only yesterday that Dae-Hyun tackled him like a damn rugby player and yet Tommy had a cheery look upon his face."Oh my gosh, Tommy, are you okay?" Gail asked with a worried look, "We heard the Dae-Hyun almost broke your nose.""Yeah and we saw the video the devil in Prada posted." Nina spoke with a disgusted look upon her face as she held her phone which was playing the video itself. Tommy knit his brows and smiled as he watched the unfolding of events."Ooooh, that's gotta hurt," he joked with a soft chuckle."Thomas," Cece called with a pout, "How are you feeling?"The guy with dark hair pushed his head back in a fit of chuckles and sat down on our table, "Honestly, all the attention I'm getting over this video makes me feel special." Kai, who was next to him, nudged his s
"I'm telling you, the kings joined the football team because of Lilac!" Gail exclaimed, sitting atop my shared table with Kai, who happened to be catching some z's with his head and arms on the vacant side of the table."But don't you think it's too petty, even for them, to join the football team all to catch Lilac's attention?" Nina furrowed her brows, making Gail roll her eyes. "Honey, they're the kings of petty if you've forgotten.""Sure but, to what gain?" she questioned again."I only see it this way, they 1) want a reason to approach her when she's cheering Tommy in the bleachers, 2) want a reason to gang up on her on a singular occasion, 3) they want to flaunt their physiques in unnecessary ways because they're all arrogant farts."Nina and Gail looked at each other with looks sold with those reasons, while Cece groaned and rolled her eyes. "Forget that, it shouldn't matter what the reason is, what we should do now is prepare Lilac for the worst."
