We finally reached shay's house, and the whole while I was just thinking about Ryan if what I did was right.

"Sophie, you can sleep in shay's room" shay's mother said.

"thanks"

I walked slowly behind shay to her room. I didn't say much in the car, and I wasn't gonna start saying stuff now.

"what's wrong with you?" She asked

"nothing"

"I don't buy that for a second"

"well you don't have to believe me, I just wanna curl into a little ball and go to sleep, can I go to sleep? Or are you gonna continue to suffocate me with questions?" I asked realizing I sounded rude.

"well, I hope you lose that attitude by the morning" she said. "what's going on in the morning?" I asked. She looked at me as if I was crazy. "umm, school, you ain't been in so long" she said walking out and into the bathroom that was across the hall.

School, I wanted to go back to school, but its just so sudden. Everybody gonna be looking at me. Ima be so lost in class, ima have so much work to catch up on.

I lied in the bed tossing and turning. I would fall asleep for five minutes then wake back up to think about Ryan and school.

At one point during the night, I got up and started pacing back and forward.

Somehow I laid back down and drifted off to sleep.

I woke up by hands rocking me back and forward. I looked up to see shay standing above me fully dressed.

"Get up, get ready! You got about 20 mins before the bus come and we be late"

"And I picked u out an outfit of mine, cause you know how it take you to pick out clothes." She said handing me the clothes she had neatly folded.

"Thanks, and I'm sorry bout last night, I know I was being rude and I apologize" I said hugging her.

I walked into the bathroom and took a quick shower then starting putting on the Marilyn Monroe shirt she gave me and the black tights. I combed my hair into a ponytail and slipped back on the black and white converses shay gave me to wear.

" grab a bag of chips and a juice, we don't have time for breakfast" she said when we heard the bus pulling up. Before I got a chance to grab anything she grab my wrist and we was running to the bus.

I stepped on the bus behind shay and everybody stopped talking and their eyes shifted to me.  I just sat down and tried to ignore all the attention I was getting.

The whole bus ride to school, I could hear snickers and whispering here and there. I knew they was talking bout me because I heard my name so many times.

The bus finally stopped at the school and I got off before she opened the door completely. "Sophie, come back, what's wrong?" Shay said following me to the side of the school.

"I was so stupid to think I can just come back to school after this long time and everything would just be fine"

"Everything is gonna be fine"

"Everyone is gonna be talking! Talking bout me! I should just go back to your house I don't know if I can handle it" I said taking deep breathes to hold my frustration and anger in.

" listen to me, you are gonna go in there and go to class as if you never left. And you gonna deal with it and you are gonna do it all over again tomorrow." She said holding my shoulders.

I wanted to come back and that maybe she was right. I took a deep breath and hugged her as the bell rang. I looked at her then back at the double doors leading to the place I haven't been in months.

Walking in, I walked into the cafeteria to grab something to eat, since I had about 10 mins before the late bell ranged.

The cafeteria was basically empty and that made me relax. Walking to the breakfast line I looked up to be licking eyes with my mother, behind the counter wearing a hairnet.

"Ma?" she took off her gloves and came around the counter and pulled me into a hug that I wasn't participating  in.

"I missed you baby, how have you been?" She asked looking somewhat concerned.

I pulled away from her, grab a muffin and juice carton before trying to leave.

"Can we talk, please. I know I have a lot to explain" she said tried to come closer to me.

"What are you doing working at my school?" I said with a low voice. "They just hire anybody don't they, do they know you was I mean still is a trashy bitch!" I said not even thinking about what I said til after the words escaped my lips.

"I know I wasn't there really for the past couple months, but I am still your mother." She said with a tear rolling down her face.

"I got this job for you, for us" she said with her voice starting to quiver.

"Well im doing just fine without you in my life"

"I know things between us have been rough lately, but I am here to make it better " she spoke softly reaching her hands out to me for a hug.

I just looked at her and walked out the cafeteria. As I was walking down the hall to my art class I was thinking maybe she is trying to make things between us good again. I threw my muffin away because I was to nervous to eat it.

I walked in art to find everyone sitting down staring at me. My teacher, Mrs skultz turn around with confusion on her face.

"Sophie?" She stopped to push her glasses up from off her nose. "What are you doing in here?" She asked. After she said that I was the one with the confused look on my face.

"What do you mean, this is my class"

"You are in my third block class " she said as everyone started to laugh. "You been gone that long that you don't remember your classes?" Someone in the back of the room yelled.

"We heard you got pregnant and you dropped out of school?" Someone else said with a more masculine voice.

"What, where are you getting those from? I asked to whoever said it.

"Hey now, everyone calm down and continue working on your projects with your partner, remember your projects are due in 3 days." She said as everyone started moving around to work on their project.

She then pulled me aside when everyone was preoccupied with their work. "You can talk to me, were you pregnant?" She asked.

My mouth dropped open and my feet started to find their way out the door.

I ran out the building and looked left and right and ran forward to the Starbucks across the street.

I can't do this. Maybe I should drop out. No I can't do that. I don't know

******
