Why does this have to happen to me?! Chapter 8

Hi! I am SO sorry I didn't upload for a long time! To those who read the previous chapter the day or the day after I uploaded, you guys saw me asking for help in designing men's and kids' clothes. I was asking this 'cuz my sewing teacher asked us to design 36 sets of clothes and she said it was due the week after which is this week so I drew and drew and drew. That was the only thing I did for the whole weekend since we had to use watercolor on it. I also did my homework. I though January would be full of free time. I was wrong. I was also wrong about the due date. It turns out, from this week, there is one more week until the actual due dat :| I am so pissed off about that. But now, at least I get extra points for submitting it early. 10 points to be exact :D Anyway, the rest of the week was spent studying and doing my homework. I was bombarded with them...Tomorrow, I have a test in History ( Civics ), Math, Science and CLE so I have to study....

Anyway, enough with the babbling and let's get on with the story! Comment, vote, fan please!


I know I have to do something and do it fast. However, what I do, I don't even think of doing it. My body just moves on its own.

I jump off the couch, sailing over the two boys' heads, land on all fours then sweep my leg under their's. Just as Brian is falling, I catch him and lay him down gently on the floor. I hear a thud and look up to see Keith grimacing and rubbing his backside. Honestly, I could've caught him but he deserves it.

"What'd you do that for?" Keith demands, groaning when he sits up.

I stare at him in disbelief. "Are you serious?" I ask him.

Brian sits up, chuckling and shaking his head. "Wow. You're even more stupid than I thought. And that was virtually impossible."

Keith growls and begins to stand up. I give a look and he sits back down on the floor. Well, that's a first. "I did that because you would've ended up with a broken nose."

He mumbles something along the lines of, "Better than a bruised butt. I don't think I'll be able to sit without hurting myself for a day, at least."

I glare at him. "What?" I say coldly, daring him to repeat that.

"I said, 'I would have caught his fist before it hit me'" He says in a louder voice.

"As if there was a chance of that." Brian scoffs. Keith glares at him and Brian grins widely, showing all his teeth.

"Oh, yeah? Let's--"

"Do you guys want me to kick BOTH of your asses?" I say loudly at the ceiling.

"But he--" Keith says.

"He is a martial artist with a main of street fighting." I look at him as I say this. " He started at the age of five."

"But I'm--"

"Gonna get your ass whooped if you fight with him." I finish for him.


"This guy really loves asses." Brian states. At this, I can't helpo but burst out laughing.

"I don't-- I meant-- I-- I-- Argh!" Keith throws his hands up in frustration and stomps out of the room.

Brian and I ignore him and continue laughing. We laugh until tears fall from our eyes and we are rolling on the floor, clutching our stomachs. It's been a really long time since we did this together. I missed it. I realize belatedly that Brian isn't laughing  anymore but staring at me with a smile on his face.

"What? Is there something on my face?" I ask, still laughing a little. I stand up to go to the mirror behind the couch but Brian pulls me back down. I shoot him a questioning look.

"There's nothing, ugly." I mock frown at his teasing. "I just noticed how much you've grown since I left."

I chuckle. "Of course I'll grow taller. What, do you want me to stay about three feet tall?"

Brian continues smiling at me but this time, there is a glint in his eyes. "No, I meant I was kind of expecting the same snot-faced brat from before."

"Hey! That wasn't snot." I pause, thinking. "At least not all of it..." I shake my head as if to shake away the very thought. "What did you mean by that, anyway?"

"By what?" Brian asks, faking cluelessness.

I smirk at him. "You can't trick me. I introduced that technique to you."

"No, you didn't. Spongebob did." He raises his chin in defiance.

"Well, I used it first. So--" I stick my tongue out at him. He laughs at me and I glare at him. "C'mon. Tell me."

Brian sighs in defeat. "I was saying that you act more mature but considering you just did that, I take it back."

"Nuh-uh. No takebacks." I smile.


"Nuh-uh." I have a feeling this won't end.

"Uh-huh." I am SO not losing to him.

"Nuh--" I begin to say but am cut off.



So, how do you feel about this one? I hurried it so you guys can have something to read :D This is more comedy than the others. Poor Keith. He always gets cut off. Anyway, I hope you like it! :) Comment, vote, fan!
