Schools out and so is the truth. Audrey finally tells off the school's queen bee.
"School's out for the summer!" Alicia jumped around and danced in the middle of the lunch room. I grabbed her arm and stopped her.
"Not just yet. In exactly two hours school will be out for the summer."
"Don't poop the party!" I rose from my seat at our usual lunch table and flung my trash into the garbage can next to me. I smoothed out the black skirt I was wearing and my Iron Maiden tube top.
"I gotta get something from my locker. Be right back." I walked out of the lunch room eager to escape all the whispers and laughs and eager to get my cell phone so I could text during graduation ceremony thing.
My heels clicked as I walked quickly to my locker and snatched my phone from inside. I heard footsteps from behind me and turned around to be face-to-face with Valerie. Otherwise known as my arch nemesis. (Okay so maybe I'm a tad over dramatic but I did really hate her.)
"Hey slut." She scoffed at my comment.
"Would you look at that? You're such a hypocrite."
"I'm not a slut. You on the other hand...."
"Listen WHORE. You better stay away from my boyfriend this summer."
"How could anyone date YOU?"
"Ask Jeremy." My heart dropped into my stomach. I knew that was coming but I wanted to doubt myself. I didn't want to believe the boy I love loved, my former best friend, was dating Valeria Vurrons.
"You're nothing Audrey. You know that? Nothing!"
"Maybe nothing is enough." I began walking away. My heels once again clicking loudly. She shouted to me as I walked down the long hall.
"You're trash! You're never gonna make it!"
I stopped but kept my back to her. For some reason the biggest smile came unto my face and I finally replied,
"I don't wanna make it. I just wanna-" Students flooded through the hall way. The lunch bell rang and cut my sentence short. I turned to see Valerie standing in the middle of the hall confused. I smiled and knew it was a good thing I didn't finish my sentence. Why? Because I didn't really know what I "just wanted". I only knew it was something extraordinary.
