"Dia you look so stressed out!!" said Leon as he sat beside me at our lunch table with Mitchy.
"Yeah thanks for the note about that. ."
"Oh sorry . Did it hurt??"
"Nah. . It's good."
"Maybe its because of James" I nearly spitted out the food in my mouth.
"What the heck?! Mitchy!!" its been two weeks since I've avoided James, Mr. Javier and Mr. Garcia. Even if they tried to talk to me I would just walk away or find a way not to talk to them. I know I'm being stupid but who cares?? I'm minding my own business.
"Woo. . Denial much??" retorted Leon while forking his chicken
"No! Shut up!"
"Whoopsie. . That was a low blow Leon low blow.." said Mitchy while grinning at me. Me? In denial? I DON'T THINK SO!!
"Was it??" he asked mischieviously.
"Oh shut up you guys!!"
"James! Over here!!" I suddenly jerked my head upwards as I heard his name and looking over at the soccer boys. It wasn't James but some other James in the soccer club. I sighed deeply and lowered my head while eating my cake.
"Dia. ." I jolted up as I heard his voice. I looked around and met his green mesmerizing eyes. It was filled with concern and sincerity that I didn't want to hurt him anymore..
"What do you want??" I asked him.
"I just wanted t - " "Save it!" I said as I stood up bringing my lunch tray along with me. He suddenly grabbed my arm and forced me to look at him.
"Dia! It's not a save it! You've got to stop acting like a child!" he scolded me in front of the whole student body. I heard some girls snickering at me obviously talking about me. 'Bitches'
James grabbed my tray and handed it to a student.
"You bring it over to the lunch lady" the student nodded and did James's bidding.
"Let go of me James!" I shouted at him but his grip on my arm tightened making me wince.
"I won't let go"
"Why can't the three of you just stop messing with me!!" now I was the one scolding him.
"Dia. ." he gave me a pitiful and sorry look.
"Oh don't give me that look. You just came here to amuse yourself and embarass me in front the students right? Mr. Popular Son of the Headmaster. ." I scolded him.
"Dia, it's not like that! We just - " "No! Shut up! Just shut up James!!" I shook of his hand and ran away.
"Sorry about this James. ." said Mitchy as she followed me and Leon trotting along.
I went to the garden to clear all my thoughts away and Leon and Mitchy were beside me. I curled up into a ball with my head on my knees.
"Dia. . It's all right. . I'm sure James - " "Oh I'm not going to take excuses anymore! Stop talking James out of it" I scolded Mitchy as my hand gripped my legs more tighter.
"I'm sorry Dia. . It's just. . James was so sincere when he was talking to you. . I'm supposedly your best friend who is supposedly talking about your problems whoever or what - " " James over here!!" Leon cutted off Mitchy's deliberation and my head jolted up when I heard his footsteps.
"Okay. . We'll be going now. ." said Mitchy as she dragged Leon.
"Dia. . Good Luck." whispered Leon. I stared at both of them in disbelief. How could they just leave me like this?!
"Dia. ." James muttered affectionately.
"James. . I told you its none of my business so please just leave me alone. . Why can't you just do that?!" I scowled at him. He was caught up by my reaction.
"I can't . . I just can't keep on leaving you like this knowing that Vincent is after you . ." Vincent?? Who the heck is Vincent?
"Who the heck is Vincent??" I asked him.
"Vincent. . Is the guy who I used to know. . From my days as a mafian . ." the Mafia?! The Mafia?! Guys who kill and sell bad stuff??
"I know its weird to know this but. . Me, Mr. Javier, and Mr. Garcia. . Were ex-mafians. . My father doesn't know so I didn't tell him .. That's the times when I met Vincent and he let me join the gang even though I'm only 6 that time I think. . That's where I met Francis and Liam. . We were all the best assets of Vincent because while I'm good at hand to hand combat, Francis is the best when it comes to using weapons and stuff , and Liam is more than genius in techs especially hacking into the most remote security systems without being traced. ." he stated. I just kept my expression blank but my mind was going crazy. James? An ex- mafian?! Even Mr. Javier and Mr. Garcia?!
"Then the three of us decided that we've been doing alot of harmful things especially to the civilians. . That's why we started to rebel against Vincent. . And comes today. . They target every living thing that has either a close or even an intimate relationship with us. . Those people who just know us and nothing more nothing less aren't targeted so you don't need to worry about them targetting Mitchy or Leon. ." I still stared blankly at him. .
