My heart picked up as I slid out of my chair and stood, my legs felt wobbly under me. They felt like they would give out in any second, I was thinking the words but I knew as soon as I opened my mouth they would either come out rushed or I would stutter like some kind of dumb fool. The teacher looked at me expectantly as well as the class, I glanced at Drew, Bryan, Lily, and Brook who were staring at me waiting for me to open my mouth and talk.
"I'm Sabrina..." I said.
A wash of relief washed through me as I realized that I didn't stutter not once. The class smiled, I heard a couple whistles coming from the middle row. The sub smiled at me, but I could tell by her face that she wasn't done asking me things about me so I continued to stand. After a while she finally opened her mouth and spoke,
"What do you like to do Miss. Sabrina?" She asked.
I looked up as if thinking but I already knew what I was going to say, "Well, I love to write songs and sing, though I never ever would do that in public... I also have a love for food, mostly healthy ones, and hanging out with my friends is a must every day."
She smiled and motioned for me to sit down. At least I got that over with, I didn't at all stutter which was good, I turned in the direction of Drew and Bryan, they were smiling at me, then Bryan took out a pen and started scribbling something down on his palm, his tongue stuck out of the corner of his mouth as he tried to concentrate really hard on what he was doing. When he finished his tongue slid back into his mouth and he smiled happily.
Next up was the girl that sat in front of me, her name was Charlotte and she liked to draw. I would love to see some of her art sometime, but most of the kids just snickered and leaned back into their chair clearly uninterested. I didn't sneer or snicker but I didn't say anything either, I wouldn't risk everyone looking at me like I was a weirdo who was friend crazy, plus this girl looked like a total geek, from her frizzy hair to the braces and glasses. Not to mention the endless number of blackheads and pimples that covered her face.
We went up and down my line; finally it was time for Andrew to tell us all what he liked. Next up would be some weird boy who was scribbling down superhero names on his notebook and then Lily, after Lily would be Brook and then in the next line would be Bryan who seemed to be eager to get his chance to speak. Wonder why he was so jumpy and happy every single time we got closer and closer to his line which was the third line.
"My name's Andrew, my friends call me Drew. What I like to do, well, love to do is play football it's basically my life." Drew said flashing his amazing smile before sitting down.
I think the teacher was fazed for a couple seconds by his smile, because it took a couple minutes for her to get the class back on track. The room did seem to get a little hot when Drew smiled; I guess that's why a couple girls in the front were fanning themselves as they smiled dreamily in his direction. He just drummed his fingers on his desk and looked at the superhero kid who's name was Harold.
Apparently Harold loved to play with action figures and draw superheroes, not to mention his deep love for cat woman. He actually thought that he would meet her and steal her heart some day, that boy was pretty weird, I'm going to keep my distance from him. I don't want to be sucked into his little world, but Charlotte was defiantly giving him the love eyes. I guess nerd and nerd equal nerd love right. Not meaning to judge anyone on my first day, but they do look very unattractive.
"Hi, I'm Lily and I love to cheer!" Lily said enthusiastically kicking her foot up in the air and catching it in her hand before letting it go and sitting back down.
"Wow, thank you Lily for your demonstration... next?" The sub said clearly not loving Lily's little demonstration.
Brook sat in her seat examine her nails, she didn't even seem to notice that it was her turn. The teacher waited as well as the rest of the class. Finally, she cleared her throat getting Brook's attention; she put on a shocked face and then smirked. The sub frowned and gestured for her to get up, the class erupted into giggles as Brook rolled her eyes and huffed 'fine old lady!' under her breath.
"Brook's the name, as if you don't know that. Head cheerleader and student body president for the past year, and going for two! I love to cheer and politics is my zone!" Brook said smiling widely and flipping her hair over her shoulder before sitting back down.
