Chapter Ten: Working Friendship.
Seth sighs and I groan as Marisa dumps a load of paper work on the staff room table, smiling wickedly. "If you two could file this, I would be so grateful" Marisa says, winking as she leaves the room, leaving us to it. "Urgh, can't believe it" I moan, picking up a file and looking through it.
"Great" Seth says sarcastically, rolling his eyes.
"Kill me now" I groan, looking at him seriously as he laughs.
"A little dramatic, don't you think?" he asks and I shake my head.
"Nope, I'm going to die of boredom anyway, why not save me the suffering?" I say, smiling as he laughs again.
Writing on the file, I store it alphabetically, Seth passing me his file for me to put away. We start a system, Seth looking through the files and writing on them while I store them, making the whole process a little easier.
It's been three weeks since Seth started work and things have been running . . . as smooth as they could have. Casey found out and had a huge moan, shouting at me not to dare break her rules, reminding me over and over that I was working along side the enemy. Rex tried to stop her from havinga go at me, but she shouted him down, returning to me and warning me how important this was. I nodded and promised her I would never do anything to stop our friendship, smiling convincingly.
"So? How's everything?" Seth asks and I shrug, snapping out of my thoughts
"Not bad, yourself? Rex said you're having a little trouble with the football team, like, getting them motivated and stuff" I reply, finding the E's and storing a file.
"It's not just that, you can tell they hate me. When I was made captain, I thought it might be a way of getting people to like me, or at least accept me, but turns out Casey is a lot more ''scary'' and ''threatening'' than I thought, people are reluctant to even come to practise, and those who do come, don't pay any attention" Seth tells me and I smile sympathetically.
"People have a lot riding on this law, their rep's, their friends, their relationships . . ." I murmur.
"It hasn't stopped you"
"Yeah, but it's different. We can't be caught in here, nobody from school is here to judge or anything"
Filing away the last of the paper work, Seth and I take a break, leaning back into our arm chairs. "I guess Casey's put you in a crappy situation" I sigh. "I guess all of us have"
"It doesn't matter. I leave this year, it's not long before I go somewhere different and then I won't have to worry about this sort of thing" he replies.
"What about Meadow? How does she feel about all of this?"
"She wishes it wasn't like this, that she could have a normal high school experience, but she knows she only has to put up with it for another year. She's worried about the different things she's missing out on, like a best friend or being part of a group of friends, but she knows it can't be helped"
"I guess we've sort of ruined the normal high school experience" I sigh.
"Don't feel bad. I get the impression you don't agree with Casey on this"
"How did you work that one out?" I ask and he smiles.
"For one, you never join in with the name calling and, secondly, you're talking to me now so I'm guessing you don't agree with her" he explains and I smile.
