THIRTEEN

I've been avoiding Jaxon for a week and three days.

When I saw him walking down the hall, I took another route to my class. When he tried to talk to me, I simply walked past him without saying a word. When we presented our project, he did all the talking no matter how much he wanted me to cooperate. When he tried to sit next to me in class, I moved my seat. He even tried getting my attention on social media but, I blocked him. 

It's getting harder because it's like he knows where I am every time of the day.

I don't know why he wants to keep talking to me if "it puts me in danger" but if he won't stop, I will.

I was hiding out in the empty History classroom, catching up on my assignments since I have been slacking lately and eating my lunch. "Kimora?" I turned towards the voice and eased a bit when it was just Ariana.

I focused back on my history textbook, hoping she'd get the hint that I wanted to be alone. Sadly, she started talking. "What are you doing in the history classroom?" She asked and I heard her footsteps coming closer to me.

I retorted. "None of your business why I'm here but, you can leave now."

I watched from the corner of my eye as she perched herself on top of the desk next to me, swinging her legs. Her eyes were gleaming with mischief through her glasses as she observed me carefully like a cat.

"Is Kimora Woods avoiding Jaxon Falls?" She tittered, going on since I didn't answer. "I've never thought I'd see Kimora Woods hiding away from a guy." I played with the pen in my hand, getting impatient that she was still here. I turned my body towards her and she smiled sinisterly. "What's wrong? Cat got your tongue, Kimora?"

"What do you want, Ariana?" I folded my arms over my chest.

Her smile fell, noticing she wasn't going to get any amusement from me. "I need a story so I wanted to talk to you."

I narrowed my eyes at her. "You're not getting anything from me. Now shoo-"

"I know what you've done in the past."

My eyes widen in shock and I balled my hands into fists as she smirked. "I don't know what you're talking about."

She laughed mockingly. "Don't act innocent, Kimora. I went to your old high school before you transferred freshman year. I talked to the right kind of guy and he gave me all of the details."

I breathed, feeling a little lightheaded. Just great. I thought I got away from this all but, Ariana just had to stick her nose into my business.

"If you play your cards right," She resumed, hopping off of the desk. "I won't tell anyone."

"What are you talking about?"

She slowly circled around me. "I know Jaxon is hiding something. Tell me what it is."

I rolled my eyes, standing up from my chair. I stepped closer to her and she backed into a desk. "I don't know what Jaxon is hiding and if I did, I wouldn't tell you." She swallowed down hard and I glowered down at her. "You can run around and tell everyone who I was but, not one damn person will believe you because you only spread gossip that isn't true."

She huffed. "I can bring a witness-"

"People will think that it's just an act." I quickly shot back. She didn't say anything so I resumed. "Everyone knows how you and Jaxon used to sleep together. No one will think you're telling the truth. You're just a jealous little girl who wants Jaxon for themselves."
