"How often does this happen?" Asked Ava as they both took a seat.
"No forget about it."
"No... no.. I hard you clearly Kara. You said not today. That means it's often, I guess it's the reason why you weren't in class yesterday whenI arrived."
"No!.. how do the two things connect. No." Fouled Kara
"Well I'm not stupid and your face says otherwise so." Shrugged Ava as she continued Whispering. "I can't stand there kind, and I won't give a blind eye if ever I learn he's done something to you."
"Wait now are you my boyfriend?" Smirked Kara.
"No... of course not but this is me and I take care of my friends."
"So now we are friends?"
" well I can chuck you right now and call Dante over to my seat so I can take his." Joked Ava.
"Oh... so i take the friend you offer."
"Yeah... i see he scares you. He should be scared of you?"
"Well he has his reasons so. Let's stop the talk about this. Mr. Alfonso is already here. "
"For now yeah... but later we talk." Whispered as the old chemistry gentleman stared at them.
"Okay student. I'm in class so..quiet."
Mr. Alfonso picked up a mark pencil to start teaching as the class patiently waited.
Dante though was making paper balls in mounts and throwing them to Kara when Ava wasn't looking. It went on repeatedly until one hit Ava at her forehead. She gazed to see who it was but never got too so she pretended to look into her work as yet again Dante started to throw the papers.
When Ava picked a gaze of him, she stood from her seat and walked over to Dante who stattered to the stand of her. Grabbed both of his hands twisted to his writing table, his wrist at the edge of the table and pounded them down repeatedly as everyone watched.
Immediately Mr. Aflonso turned to the feeling of a situation and asked Ava to stop just when she was about to slap Dante.
"I learnt you're a problematic person Ava Sinclair but here in my class and this school, we don't fight." Explained the teacher. "After school. Detention miss. "
"Well I asked her too." Commentated Kara.
"You too then, after school, you both have detention."
Ava left Dante and worked back to her seat and there she stared at him growling on the inside and then turned to Kara.
"Are you sick or something?" Ava asked whispering as Mr. Alfonso turned to his board again.
"Then why did you say you asked me too? You're crazy."
"Well because it's me you were fighting for.right?"
"Don't flutter yourself queen. I received a paper ball on my forehead. That's why?"
"Okay then, but it's already done. Detention for the two of us."
They both sat calmly again to concentrate. when the class had ended and Mr. Alfonso left the room, Ava quickly rose from her seat and trolled over to Dante who was parking his bag to head out.
"Listen to me Dante." Fouled Ava pulling him closed by his jacket. "Don't you ever play dumb around me. "
"What's with you girl, it was a joke."
"Well I don't like joke Manuel. I don't. Don't you ever play funny with me and with Kara if not, then you will find out why I was sent to this town."
She let Manuel go and picked up her bag pack, grabbed Kara by the wrist and led the way out as everyone who was still in class kept a serious gaze at them.
"Wow. Where were you when I needed you the most." Joked Ava as they both walked through the hall way to the cafeteria.
"This is serious Kara."
"I'm serious thou."
Everyone was gazing at them kinda like the news had travelled already.
"So what does your cafeteria serve for break recess."
"Well, tacos, enchiladas, lasagna, frozen pizza, orange juice and burgers."
"Oh... not amusing but atleast they have tacos and nuggets. "
"Have you found anything you don't complain about?"
"Well I think so, you."
They both walked to the cafeteria.
Ava ordered tacos and the juice which Kara contradicted and ordered the enchiladas with no juice at al
"You weird." Commented Ava as she stared at Kara's enchiladas.
"Well I don't like tacos. That's all."
"If you didn't like tacos, they wouldn't have come first when I asked you about the food."
"Oh... well I don't like the now."
It was then a few minutes later when the bell rang again to end recess.
They both walked back to class for the art lesson. Then later after school, mr. Alfonso came in to look for them for there detention which took one full hour and it was six p.m.
Kara though asked to go with Ava and spent sometime at her place, keep her company and distracted.
When they reached her cottage, out was parked a sport Mitsubishi outlander that was clearly familiar to Ava.
"Seems you have guests." Said Kara.
"Yeah it my mom."
"But they are two of them, is one your sister?"
"Really.. no I don't have a sister. That's Audrey I think."
"A friend or something. "
"Too many questions dear. She and I had something. Maybe have i think!"
"Don't tell me. You're ... um... that?" Smirked Kara.
"Yeah... I'm that huh.... a lesbian.. please don't tell anyone my dad will get embarrassed. "
"No a word."
"Don't worry am joking. "
"Will you wait for me? To take you home?" Inquired Ava heading out of the car."Maybe. It will depend." Replied kara.She hurriedly reached the car. Brenda was though looking overwhelmed. Her grey eyes were fixed to her daughter ready to tear out. and Audrey. Chocolate skinned, crazy curly hair with very brown eye balls. She though looked very pissed and insinuated being force to get there in the first place.
"Hey. Open up already." Loudly knocked Kara who had been standing there for about five minutes.In a beat after, Ava crucked the door open for Kara to head in as she proceeded with covering herself in the sheets again."Good morning." Said Kara sarcastically.
"You disrespected me. Me? Miguel Dante." Chuckled he annoyingly. "This is my town Miss Sinclair... I don't play hide and seek with dogs. You can't just arrive here and undermine me.""So your the dog?" Inquired Ava.
"I know it for a fact. I've known your father before. And he has never been a fan of me so." explained Ava."yeah. I don't care what he thinks about who I hang out with you know. I'm done having my life controlled. it's just so frustrating. ""see. you do have something your keeping from me and I've been blurbing about myself all this time forgetting to ask how your doing.""I don't wanna talk about it. please?""really? okay. I can tell you anything about me. ask me anything and I will tell you the truth and in return, you tell me what's bothering you. so you could get it off your chest.""why? why would you do that? ""I love carrying people's burdens. " replied Ava chuckling. " seriously. I just want you to feel ease talking to be. i don't want you to be an open book obviously but if we are friends then I would love telling you everything.""you think so?"
Early the next morning. it was a Monday. Manning as a city was getting into Halloween moods which was three weeks from the sunday special.People were all around the town. A few stores having decorated the night before. everywhere packed with scary designs.Manning university had not yet gone through the changes yet. everything was as normal as it had been the previous day except those students that happened to be mischievous than the rest had already planted scary decors in
"What are you to do about your father ?" Inquired Kara."He won't call him?" Replied Ava."You think so?""I know he won't call him. He will be getting my mother.""I'm so sorry.""Its nothing. My only worry is how I'm going to spent two weeks in the cottage with no phone. No nothing.""I could keep you company some days maybe bring you books to read?""I could do with the company. I'm not really into reading. I'm no professor but anyways. Bring them over so i See what I will do with them." Replied Ava having both of them chuckling."Alright. I could also get myself suspended for some days." Chuckled Kara."Yeah." That's not a nice joke. Leave those only for me."Who said I was joking? I'm not. I'm weighing my options."
Ava had slept on the couch that night. so, she had to sleep lightly and by morning, took a bath making breakfast then getting it to Kara in bed who was still sleeping."Hey! Kara. Wake up. You have to go to school."Ava knocked in shaking Kara from her sweet sleep."Hey! Morning. I'm I late?""No. You got an hour and a few minutes. You should take a shower and have your breakfast.""You made me breakfast in bed?""You don't want it? I ca
"So! what do you think? Can a few of this get done before the end of the day?""Yeah! If you give a little hand. Me and my friend here can have alot done before the end of the day."" Well okay. Tell me what I will need to do and we get started." Asked Ava."Well. Not too much. Can you just take a seat
