Living with the Walker Boys (EDITING)


Please read the author's note at the end. There's a note about a special contest :D


“What are you doing” Mason asked me, amusedly.

“Finals are this week” I shouted, throwing my Chemistry study guide at him.

“Yeah, and?”

“What do you mean and? This is freak-out time!”

He leaned against my doorway and flipped through my Chemistry study guide. “What for?”

“Because it can make or break my grade!” I eyed him suspiciously. “How are you not freaking out?”

“Because finals aren’t that big of a deal.”

My jaw dropped. “WHAT?”

He chuckled. “I’ll leave you to your studying babe. Love you.”

I threw my Chemistry book at him as he walked out of the door, laughing to himself.

I poured myself over my Algebra 2 study guide, chewing my bottom lip.

“Hey honey, can I get you anything” Mary-Anne called from my doorway.

“Yeah, a back-up brain. There’s no way I’m gonna remember all of this.”

She chuckled. “I have faith in you Zoe. I’ll get Eileen to whip you up a batch of cookies. Just keep at it.”

“Thanks” I muttered, as I worked out yet another imaginary number problem. I couldn’t get it right. “Math is stupid” I shouted, throwing my pencil at the wall.

“No, you’re just stupid” Carson said, as he crutched by. He went to close my door.

“Walker! You’re in like the smart math class, right?”

He raised his eyebrows. “The smart math class?”

“Yeah, like Pre-Cal or something?”

He nodded. “Why?”

“Please, please, please help me. I’ll be your bestest friend in the whole wide world.”

He chuckled and came into my room. He stretched out across my bed and took my study guide from me.

“Imaginary numbers” he asked, picking up another pencil. “This is the easy stuff.”

“Shut up and help me Walker.”

He smiled and wrote out the next problem. He worked through it with me step-by-step.

I ran my fingers through my hair. “Wow.”

He laughed. “Do you get it yet?”

“Hang on, sit here while I try one by myself.”

He put his hands behind his head and let out a sigh, his six-pack rippling.

“Does it ever hurt” I asked, as I worked on the problem.


“Your leg.”

He smirked. “Yeah, it hurts.”

“Why don’t you use a wheelchair?”

“Because it’s a pain in the ass. I can take care of myself.”

I did another step of the problem. “So it’s the whole macho act thing?”

“Macho act thing?”

“Where guys act tough because they think it makes them cool or they don’t want to show their weakness or something?”

I finished up the problem and handed it to him to check.

“No, it’s not a macho act thing, whatever the hell that is. The wheelchair is a real f*cking pain. I have to either propel myself, which is harder than using crutches, or get someone to push me around, which is a pain in the ass.” He handed the paper back to me. “And that is wrong.”

I scanned the problem. “Are you sure?”

He smiled. “Yeah, because you shouldn’t have any numbers in your answer. It’s either positive or negative i. That’s it.”

I sighed and started on the problem again. “Math shouldn’t have the alphabet in it.”

“That, my dear, is something I won’t argue with” he said.

Mary-Anne walked in with a batch of cookies and a glass of milk.

“Hi best friend” I sang, as she handed me the plate of cookies. She put the milk on my nightstand.

“Oh, so now you’re two-timing me” Carson demanded, as he grabbed a couple of cookies.

I rolled my eyes. “There’s plenty of me to go around. You don’t have to be jealous honey.”

“This is ridiculous” he said, waving his arms around dramatically. “I will not be your back-up choice.”

Mary-Anne rolled her eyes and put her hands on her plump hips. “Sorry, but I’m obviously her first choice. I mean, look at me. I’m the whole package.”

I busted out laughing, almost spraying milk everywhere. This is why I love Mary-Anne to pieces.

“Oh Anne, you’re just jealous because Zoe doesn’t love you as much as she loves me” Carson said, shaking his head.
