Jen was starting to annoy me, can't she see me and Penina are having fun! I love Jen really...
Hozzie was killing the fun with Faye, they were running around and killing all of the ladybirds. Well, until me and Pen attack them for it.
The day was cold. The grass was cold to even the slightest touch, ice slid down the long cascading plant. But still no sign of a ladybird.
"Come on guys! Lunch is almost over and I'm bored of killing ladybirds that aren't there"
Hoz was right, we hadn't found anything all lunch time. Frank had left a while ago to go find Gerard, they've been arguing a lot lately. It's mainly Gerard's fault, ever since he split up with Jessie he has been a dick to all of us, I swear to god I will end his life if he carries on.
I've been going out with Frank, Gerard, Emily and Charlotte more often, sometimes even Penina would come but not Dan. Also, I've started a dance class , well sort of stage school, I haven't really got any friends yet I just sort of live in the corner and haven't shown my true colours. Megan seems cool and so does Miranda, I'm sure I could go hang out with them some more instead of being a loner. The dance moves are pretty easy to pick up, we are doing a horror medley; my perfect idea of dance. It's all for the upcoming pantomime we are doing, 'Cinderella' I doubt I will even get line because I'm new and no one likes the new kid.
"Mehh I wanna get some ladybirds! Dan, Jeremy and Frank have one! Why can't I?!"
"Pen! I've found one!"
He was just lying there on a leaf, almost lifeless.
"I think he's dead!"
Poor thing, he is an animal too like us! Why does someone find it funny to kill animals, no matter how small they are! Dickheads.
"Poke it and check"
"I'm not poking a dead ladybird"
"How do you know it's dead unless you poke it?"
Meh she was right, I nudged him a little with my finger and he started to limp.
"Aww he's poorly, we need to keep him and look after him!"
Well, Pen was right about something.
"Ok then, pick him up and we will take him to Miss S. She will let us look after him"
Miss S was probably the nicest teacher in the school, she let's us sit in her room at lunch and then help her decorate after. Yesterday when she went out of class at lunch we got a photo of Jesus winking and wrote "YOLO" over it, she didn't notice until we all burst out laughing and Jennifer pointed to it and she gave me hot chocolate! Its great because she knows most of my family because she taught them, I'm obviously the best one.
"Let us walk forth to English fair maiden or sir, we need to check what if he or she is a boy or girl then we decide on the name"
Miss was waiting at her door as usual greeting us all before we went inside.
"What's that in your hand?"
"Oh just a disabled ladybird, we are looking after him or her"
She gave me a confused look before thinking about it.
"Ok then, once the class has settled I will give you some paper for a wheelchair"
Everyone had sat down in their usual seats, I noticed the ones in front of me were empty. That's usually where Frank, Gerard, Dan, Mikey, Ray, Ryan and Jeremy sit. It was about 5 minutes until they came in.
"Sorry Miss, we were looking after our ladybirds outside"
Gerard looked towards me and winked after Dan explained where they'd been. I immediately felt my face burn up, I was as bad as Pen.
"Right well just put them on the plant... Wait! What are those two doing?!"
I looked over to the ladybirds the Mikey had and saw that they were laying on top of each other, I couldn't help but say something.
"I've never seen ladybirds have sex"
"Ok Chloe give... Wait whats it's name?"
It too a while to think of a name but I had a pretty cool one in my head.
"Well I was thinking of a cool name that reflects our ladybird and since he drags his leg across the floor. I'm going to name him Dragon Dayne Shefford"
"Well here is some paper for your child to live on, isn't that dope?"
I found my english teacher so funny, the way she purposely tried to talk 'street'.
"Thanks Miss, can we just look after Dragon this lesson?"
"Ok then girls just pay attention"
Oh great, Geography. We started to walk out of the class until I noticed the orange beads on the plant. Wait they weren't beads?!
"THE LADYBIRDS HAD BABIES!!!!!!"
"I'm sorry but you aren't keeping any ladybirds in here boys, go take them outside where they belong"
It looked as though someone had shot a bullet through Ryans heart.
"B-But we can't leave the babies to die!"
Luckily the teacher hadn't seen Dragon, he was ill and couldn't walk so I put him on the other side of the window.
"I'm sorry boys, go take them outside now and if anyone else has a ladybird please take them outside"
Penina, Hozzie and Jennifer all turned around and stared at me.
"Well he's outside isn't he? I'm not letting him die! He's my child!!!! Dragon Dayne Shefford shall not die!"
Gerard and Kassandra collected everyone's ladybirds and went outside returning five minutes later.
I turned to look at the door to see my red headed cousin Brooke.
"Hi miss, can I give Chloe her blazer back?"
"Ok just hurry up"
I forgot that I let Brooke borrow my blazer, she forgot hers and needed mine to get into her exam.
"Brooke, I've got a ladybird!"
I tried to whisper but so she could still hear me.
I sat and pointed to Dragon and then turned to Brooke with a cheesy grin on my face. Then it happened, Brookes hand collided with the paper, knocking Dragon into the rain and terror of the outside world. I watched as she walked away laughing. That bitch.
"Pen, he's gone"
At this point I was actually close to tears, my child was gone. Probably dying in the outside world.
"Nooooooooooo! Our child! Chloe we can't let him die!"
"I can't see him! GAHHHH I hate this teacher! I need to lesson to end!"
The lesson seemed to last forever and all I would do was look out of the window to see if I could find Dragon.
"Ok kids you can..."
I didn't catch the rest, me and Pen were already out of the door looking for Dragon. A bunch of hipsters walked past us and started shouting.
"LOOKING FOR YOUR DINNER?"
You learn to ignore these things, I was literally crawling across the floor.
"If the paper is here then... PEN I'VE FOUND HIM! "
That night we decided that I'd take Dragon home, I made him his own little house and researched what ladybirds eat. His house had his little piece of paper, some water, grass and leaves and seeds. I told my Dad to look after Dragon when I left the next day, sadly when I returned two days later Dragon was dead. RIP Dragon.
(Also get well soon Megan!)
