~Chapter Nine.~

"What were you thinking? Starting a fight with an innocent girl, who was doing nothing to you."

"But-"

"No buts." Mom said interrupting me. "This is not you." She gestured towards me. "What happened to the sweet girl that I raised? The one who wouldn't get into a fight, and wouldn't dress like this."

 'She grew up' I muttered to myself.

 The Principle called her before I got home, and apparently told her that I started the fight. Which isn't true.

"What did you say to me?" She asks me.

 "Mom, I didn't start it. Brittney did. I was standing at my locker and she came and threatened me." I pleaded to her.

Mom shook her head. "That's not what the Principle told me. And do you really think he would lie to me? You are grounded from your phone and friends for a month for lying to me and for starting a fight. Hand me your phone and go to your room."

I knew she wouldn't believe me. She never does.

I hand her my outdated phone, walk out of the kitchen, and walk up the stairs to my room. I slam my door shut and throw myself down on my bed and stare up at the ceiling.

After a few minutes of laying there I feel my eyes grow heavy. I close my eyes and fall into a dreamless sleep.

***

"What happened to you? You look awful." I hear Gabe ask me when I open my locker.

I look over at him and shake my head. "You don't want to know."

He raises his eyebrows. "That bad, huh?"

I laugh a humorless laugh. "Yes, that bad."

I look at myself in my locker mirror, and see my bags under my eyes from not sleeping all night last night, due to the cause of Dad and Mom arguing. My hair is a mess, Because I over slept. My clothes do not match, because I was in a hurry.

 I take out my English book for first period, close the door and turn towards Gabe.

"So, I was thinking that we could go try out that new pizza place that just opened, after school." Gabe tells me.

I frown and shake my head. "Can't. I'm grounded."

He gives me a confused look. "You're grounded? Why?"

I roll my eyes. "It's a long story. I'll tell you at lunch."

He pouts "Why can't you tell me now?"

I smile a small smile. "Because I've got to go to class. See ya later."

He sighs, but smiles back. "Okay." He turns around and walks away.

I clutch my books to my chest, push up my glasses, and walk to English class.

Like always I'm the first one in the classroom. I take the seat in the first row and wait patiently for the teacher and students to show up.

After the bell rings the room becomes crowded with teens.

I hear hands clapping, and turn my head towards the front of the classroom.

"Kids! Kids, sit down!" Mr. Morris our English teacher yells.

After everyone calms down, Mr. Morris sits down in his chair.

"Okay time for roll call. When I say your name raise your hand." During this time I just always space out until my name is called.

"Sophie Green."

I raise my hand.

"Zack Daniel."

Mr. Morris looks up from his paper to see that his chair is empty. he's not here.

"Hold on! I'm here!" Zack comes storming inside the room.

"Well, it's nice for you to show up Mr. Daniel." Mr. Morris say sarcastically.

Zack rolls his eyes, ignores him and just slumps down in his seat.

"Today, I am going to pair all of you up in a group of two, and you have to both work together to write a book report on the book "To Kill A Mocking Bird." And it is due in one month."

Lucy raises her hand. "Yes, Ms. Stevenson?"

"Can we switch who we are partners with?" She asks him.

Mr. Morris shakes his head. "No."

I hear a bunch of groaning.

"Okay, In this hat is pieces of paper with every ones name on it. I'm going to pass it around and who you get, is who you get. After you find out who your partner is, go sit next to her or him."

When the hat comes to me, I pull out the piece of paper.

Guess who I got.

Yup.

It read 'Zack Daniel'

Great. (Note the sarcasm there.)

I turn around, and look at Zack.

He was already staring at me...and with a smirk on his face.
