The Bad Boy, Cupid & Me [ 15 ]

Start from the beginning

A few moments of silence passed by before Gabby spoke again.

“How about Reece Carter?”

My eyes widened to its full extent, after I finally found my voice, I managed to choke out some words. “W-W-WHAT?!”

“Reece Carter. You know…the hot guy? Green eyes, brown hair, tall, dreamy, gorgeous, God-like, sexy-”

“Yeah, Gabby. I get it.”

“You should go out with him!”

Again, I was too baffled to reply immediately, “No way! Are you crazy?”

“Is that a rhetorical question?” she asked, looking pretty confused.

I worry about her sometimes.

I chose to ignore her and begin the next worksheet, half way through the questions; Gabby chose to make a comment again.

“I think he likes you.”

I felt myself blushing and let out a sigh, “I thought you said he doesn’t date.”

“He also doesn’t give girl’s rides on his motorbike.”

“So?”

So…there’s a first time for everything. Besides, I think you like him too.”

“I do not!” I said instantly, feeling myself turn redder than before.

“In denial, are we?”

“I’m not denying anything – I’m stating the truth. I don’t like Reece Carter.”

Right?

Right.

Then…why did it feel like I was not only trying to convince Gabby, but more like trying to convince myself?

“Okay…whatever floats your boat.”

I was finishing off the last Math equation when I heard her mutter something under her breath.

Something that sounded a lot like, “You guys would make the perfect couple though.”

“Sorry?”

Gabby sighed, “Never mind.”

“Gabby tell me what you said-”

“Sorry to interrupt your class, Mr. Walker,” our Headmaster’s voice silenced the room. “May I please have a word with Miss Armel?” her eyes scanned the room and her lips formed into a smile when they landed on me.

My heartbeat accelerated.

All eyes were focused on me as I slowly stood up and packed my things.  My hands were trembling the slightest bit while I gathered my books and pens.

I followed the Headmaster out the door and continued in silence until we reached her office.

I felt faint.

A million things were going through my head. Every single thought revolved around one thing.

They had found out about the breaking in.

They must have discovered I was there. Maybe they had surveillance cameras operating around the school? If so, why would she want to talk to me? Why me? I didn’t do anything wrong. I’m just an innocent victim who was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

It was Reece’s fault…and Valentino’s…and Jake and Jayden’s…Hell, it was even Dennis’ fault regardless of how much of a goody-two-shoes he is.
