Harper Day sat there watching her best friend, Malcolm Wilkerson, pacing back and forth about some girl named Ronda Blackwell. Harper twirled her pale brown hair with her tanned fingers, her hazel eyes followed her friend as they turned from green to blue in a certain light.

"I don't know what she wants, she just says words thinking I would understand!" He says brushing a hand through his brown hair, the two were sitting in Malcolm's room wearing their usual clothes. Malcolm was wearing a long sleeved shirt, jeans, and running shoes, he says it's for the bullies.  Harper wore her usual black hoodie, jeans, and fluffy slippers that looked like normal shoes, she rolled her eyes.

"That's what girls do, we're complicated." She says as the door of the room opens as Reese walks in a smug look of his face, Malcolm looks at Harper who sends back a look of worry.

"What?" He asked, Harper raised an eyebrow at him.

"Did you do something, ya know? Wrong." She asked motioning a hand, Reese nodded stuffing his hands into his pocket.

"I wonder what happens when you stuff a microwave with thirty packets of popcorn." He simply says as he walks between them into the bathroom, their jaws slack open as they get up and run through the house. Harper makes it to the microwaves and pushes the open button a little too late as bags begin to shot out of the microwave, she ducks and a flaming hot packet hits Malcolm in the face. Man, can that boy scream.
