I got out of the shower the next morning, dreading my first day of school. It was freezing in my room, and I already knew why. The towel was snatched from my body when Chris appeared in my room.
"Really?" I covered myself with my hands as he laughed. I snatched the towel back and put it back around my body. "Are you gonna watch me?"
"I'll disappear- literally." He laughed, and that's what he did.
I threw on my jeans and hoodie quickly, who knows when he'll pop up. I tied my Concord 11's and threw my wet curly hair up into a messy bun.
"You ready sweetie!?" Selena called from downstairs.
"Yeah!" I called back. I shut off my light and made my way downstairs, I could feel Chris trailing behind me- his cold breath on my neck.
"You smell good." He whispered.
"What?" Selena questioned puzzled.
I heard Chris laughing as we made our way outside. It was so hard to contain myself during the car ride. He kept poking my sides, cracking jokes about Felix, and messing with my hair, trying to make me laugh.
"Have a good day sweetie."
"Thanks." I shut the car door and made my way into the school. "You can't be doing this all day." I whispered.
"Why not?" Chris asked, as if he didn't already know the answer.
"Because they gonna think I'm coocoo."
"Do you care what people think?"
"Okay then." He slapped my butt and I squealed, causing the people in the lobby to look at me.
"Stop." I said lowly.
He was laughing all loud in my ear as I made my way to the guidance office. I just wanted to slap him but I couldn't.
"Jeanylice?" The lady smiled, "we've been expecting you."
"Bitch needa go see a dentist." Chris remarked.
I couldn't help it, I laughed- the way he said it would have you laughing too.
"Is there something funny?"
"No miss, nothing is funny."
"Okay well, here's your schedule- our office aid is outside and will be more then happy to show you around."
"I can show you around this shit hole." Chris said.
"Shh." I whispered.
Outside of the office was this beautiful brown skinned boy. His skin was covered in tattoos, and his hair- lord, his hair. He stood up immediately and held his hand out. "I'm August, and ya' must be-" he looked down at his paper, "Jeanylice?"
I chuckled, "yes. Nice to meet you." His thick southern accent made it sort of hard to decipher what he was saying.
I looked to my right and saw Chris, angry- his eyes were red, and it scared me a little.
"This nigga is no good, Jeany." Chris warned, "I used to go to this school, and he used to be my best friend."
I wanted to ask Chris a whole bunch of questions but I couldn't. I just ignored him as August gave me a tour around the school.
At lunch, I took a seat at August's table since I knew nobody else.
"Ask him if he knows who I am." Chris urged.
I ignored him- which was a bad idea because he stuck his cold ass hand down my pants. "Ask him."
"Hey can I ask you something?" I questioned almost immediately.
August looked up to me, "yeah what's up?"
"Do you know who Chris is?"
"Brown." Chris said.
August froze and I knew the answer from there. "Ye-yeah, why?"
"I told you." Chris added.
"Oh, nothing I was just wondering."
"Ya' know he dead, right?"
"So, then how ya know him?"
"I was just doing some research and it said he used to go to this school."
He nodded his head. "Can I get ya phone real quick?"
I reluctantly pulled it out and handed it to him.
"Call me lata' okay?" He handed me my phone back and I saw 'Dadddyy' in my contacts. All I could do was laugh at it.
"I should delete that shit." Chris said over my shoulder.
The rest of the day flew by and as soon as I got home I bombarded Chris with questions. "Why were you so mad earlier?"
"Your eyes were red my nigga."
"I just don't like him. He's no good." He warned again, "please stay away from him Jeany."
"Stop questioning me for once, I already lived this life- I know things, just trust me."
I sighed and slumped down on the couch. "But he's so fine."
"Not finer then me though." He sat down next to me.
"I guess you're right." I laughed, then he popped my shoulder. "Hey, how come you can touch me but I can't touch you?"
"You can touch me."
"You just have to focus-give me your hand."
I held my hand out and he caressed it. "You feel that right?"
"Now try it to me, but focus on my hand."
I tried to grab his hand but it fell through.
"You're doing it too fast shawty- focus."
I took a deep breath and went for his hand again- this time I grabbed it.
"You see? You've got it." He smiled. "Now caress it."
I rubbed his cold hand, I just wanted to hug him. I know he said not to look in his eyes, but I did. Of course he wasn't looking, but I could see all of the pain and hurt in his eyes- it made my heart ache.
