"A little birdy told me that you, Mr Morgan, pushed Melody to the point where she fell down. You know we don't accept this kind of behavior." She frowns at the moron beside me. Then, she looks at me. "And you, Miss Burns, made a rude comeback. Reece is a Senior while you're a Junior, you have to respect him." The guidance counselor raises her eyebrows at me.

I put on a fake smile. "You know I wouldn't say such a thing, Mrs Tresoff. I would never hurt anybody, I promise." I say convincingly. She looked pretty convinced. Acting. It's a magical thing.

Of course I made a rude comeback. Reece, the so-called bad boy, was being an asshole. And, he may be older, but he behaves like a 10 yr old.

"Ok. Reece, did you push Melody?" The assistant principal asks him.

"It wasn't a push, it was a light tap. And she bumped into her friend." He lies.

"You know that if you don't tell the truth, you get a detention right?"

"I know." He smirks.

Her eyes go between the innocent look on my face and Reece's signature smirk. She sighs. "Ok." She says after a minute of staring at us. "You're free to go."

I walk out into the hallway and am greeted by my best guy friend Jayden.

"Hey." I say.

"Damn." He replies and laughs. "Your face when you said that you were innocent! It was hilarious. You looked like an 8 yr old, big eyes, sweet smile, and everything!"

Reece comes up from behind and whispers in my ear. "Watch where you're going next time, princesa." He says in a husky voice. Shivers go down my back when he says the nickname.

He smirks and winks at me, then walks to his group of friends.

"You ok?" Jayden snaps his fingers in front of my face.

"What?" I say and look at him. I didn't realize that I was staring at Reece. He's obnoxious, but not ugly if you know what I mean. Especially his eyes. His beautiful green eyes.

Now you're probably wondering, how did I get in the office, and how did I end the day by ogling at Reece Morgan? Well, it starts with a dysfunctional morning.

"Melody!" My brother Aaron yells from the kitchen. Aaron is a year older than me. He's a senior.

"I'm coming!" I yell back.

I grab my backpack off of my bed and take a quick look in the mirror before I head downstairs.

The black leather jacket, black high waisted jeans, and converse add to my aesthetic.

I walk into the kitchen and see my 10 yr old brother sitting on a chair, watching my mom rush around the kitchen. He takes a little bite of his cereal and looks at me. I put my stuff down and walk over to him.

"How's my baby brother?" I ask and ruffle his hair while smiling. He groans.

"I'm not a baby! I'm in 6th grade!" Jack whines. I laugh and open the freezer. Aaron comes up from behind me and reaches over my head to grab the waffles.

"Put in 4." I tell him. "2 for me and 2 for Jayden."

"I still can't believe you friend zoned him this year. It's only October and you treat him like a brother." Aaron says as he puts the waffles in the toaster.

"What do you mean? I met him freshman year. He is like a brother."

"He thought that this year he would get somewhere with you," Aaron smirks.
