All But One
"Hi!" I smile up at him. He's a lot taller than I expected, especially compared to my 5'4 height.
"Hello?" He responds, raising an eyebrow.
"I just... um... noticed you were in history with me and was wondering what's your name." I respond, slightly confused by his cold tone.
"I'm Hakeem." He says simply.
So he's not even going to ask for my name? Who does he think he is? He should be honored to know my name. I think to myself jokingly.
"Don't you want to know my name?" I ask, raising an eyebrow in confusion.
Roxanne Williams has everything a 17 year old girl could want:
Two loving parents.
A ride or die best friend.
A position at the top of her school's social chain.
When her math grade starts to sink, she's forced to learn that her bubbly charm isn't going to solve all her problems. Her math teacher takes notice and assigns her one of his best students as a tutor.
She meets Hakeem Rashford: a smart, attractive, but intimidatingly serious guy. His mysterious persona draws her in even though he makes it clear to her that he's not interested. She doesn't know why he seems to have a burning hatred for her and everyone else at their school; but, she wants to find out. What he doesn't know is: when Roxanne wants something, she gets it.
