The Tables Have Turned
“So the final answer is twenty three not fifteen,” Alex finished the explanation that I, of course, didn’t understand.
“Let’s take a break,” I suggested when he stared at me expectantly.
“No, Hailey, we can’t take a break. You need to learn this stuff for the exam.”
“But the exam is in two weeks!” I complained.
“And we have another two chapters.”
“Please? Only fifteen minutes,” I begged.
I gave him my puppy face, trying so desperately to convince him. I wanted to have a break, eat some chocolate, and relax for a bit.
“No, it’s not going to work this time. Your grades are good this term, we don’t want them to change because you—”
I cut him off by pressing my lips to his. He talks too much sometimes. He immediately responded, throwing away the book that was in his lap and pulling me closer. I smiled against his lips and he pulled away quickly, frowning at me.
“Hailey,” he reprimanded me. “That’s not a nice thing to do.”
I smiled innocently.
“At least it’s better than math,” I said.
“I won’t argue with that,” he muttered and I laughed.
“Where are you going?” He asked when I stood up to leave my room.
“I’m going to get some food.”
“We’re taking a break!”
“I didn’t agree to that.”
“You did. Should I kiss you again to remind you?”
“Well then too bad. You’re not getting a kiss.”
“Why not?” He pouted.
“Because that will waste my time. I want to eat some chocolate before those fifteen minutes are over.”
