Maxine is new, and Mikey is smitten... also some FRERARD INCLUDED!
Helena Mackenzie wasn't exactly the most happiest to walk this Earth. She didn't care much for her studies, and the only thing that actually enthralls her is the constant idiotic behavior of her brothers... and she eventually loses interest and ends up hitting them over the head with a pen. Helena Mackenzie wasn't so important to anyone else either.
At school, she was ridiculed for her choices in music, which was steam-punk and alternative rock, and she was labeled goth. Helena ignored the taunts, and just went on, despite that people wrote on her desk mean things. She had vowed that one day that they would probably pay for being so cruel and stupid. She went on with life as if it was normal to be called “cutter” or “vampire.”
Helena found the term vampire quite flattering. She was proud of her pasty skin and green eyes, and most definitely adored her black hair with purple dye that fell to her shoulders. Helena didn't care what anyone else thought; she thought everyone's opinion was worth the shit on the bottom of her black Converse. This wasn't what Helena Mackenzie unique at all, it was something else.
Although, she didn't know, until, the day she had met Maxine Farina.
Maxine “Max” Farina was by far the most peculiar person ever to attend the middle-school. For starters, she was Italian, so the minute she spoke, she was the new outcast. Secondly, she didn't make an impression by coming in and wearing a black short sleeve t-shirt, Anthrax hoodie, skinny jeans, red Converse, and freshly red-dyed hair to match. Lastly, she wore glasses, they were thin-framed, but she still was wearing glasses.
Helena's jaw dropped at the sight of a misfit like her attending this social hell. “Excuse me, miss,” she said to Helena, and the purple-haired girl's jaw came back up. “Do you know where... E3 is? It's my homeroom, and I can't seem to get any help from these incessant tossers, it's like they have some grudge against all people that dress like I do and talk like do... ugh, the nerve.”
“I have E3 too, I can lead you there, plus, I know a couple of people you'd love to meet.” Helena dragged Maxine behind her, and presented five boys. “This is Gerard, that's Mikey, his brother, Bob, Ray, and Frank!” The five waved at them, but Gerard and Frank were holding hands, and as if her mind was read, Helena said, “Gerard and Frank are dating, I told them no PDA though.”
Maxine laughed, and Mikey seemed flushed when his eyes met with Maxine's. “Hi,” he said sheepishly, and Maxine greeted the shy boy back. They both wore glasses, and at the same time, they pushed their glasses up off their nose. “So, Maxine, have you ever skipped before, because that's what we basically do for the time being... unless you're too good for it.”
Maxine said, “Ha, the reason I'm here is because I skived too much. What do we all have first, eh?” Gerard, Frank, Ray, Bob, Helena, and Maxine had PE, and Mikey had Science. “Well, let's go, it's skive time, now let's not waste it!” yelled Gerard, and he dragged Frank behind him, but not before planting a big kiss on his lips, and Helena yelled, “Didn't I say no PDA?!”
All seven 8th graders sat on the dirty ground in the back of the school, pigging out on candy and guzzling soda. Frank was devouring Skittles, and Gerard tossed them into Frank's mouth, and he caught them. “Guh- it's in my throat!” choked Frank, and Gerard did the Heimlich, and a red Skittle fell into Maxine's lap.
Being Maxine, she picked it up and put it in her mouth. Mikey laughed, and said, “You have got some serious guts if you can do that and not vomit.” Helena was disgusted however and replied, “Gross, that was in Frank's throat for crying out loud, and you just go ahead and eat it?”
Bob was flipping through a textbook, trying to study, when a wet green Skittle fell onto Caesar's face. “Frank, for fuck's sake, keep the food in your mouth, and make sure it goes down your throat- and the right pipe!” Ray was laughing at how pissed Bob was, so Bob closed the textbook and hit Ray in the stomach with it. “Gah- fuck you Bob!” It was Bob's turn to laugh.
Then, out of nowhere, came the principal.
