"When you go in there, do you want me to come with?"
"It's okay Skylar, I can handle myself."
"What if he does something to you?"
"He won't or atleast he hasn't, I'll be fine. Go in and out."
"What about when you get back, he did tell you not to leave yesterday?" She sighed after my last questions, scotched over and caressed my cheeks.
"I will be fine Skylar, then we can go to playing that game of ours." Her lips twitched with mischief. I got of her car and got my bike. There was no doubt that I was nervous because I knew something might happen to her.
Minutes past and she hadn't come out yet, I was just about to storm inside when the door shut slightly.
"Vanessa." I rushed to herself, she had changed into her new style of clothes.
"Are you ok?"
"Perfect." She beamed getting her keys.
"Let's go Skylar." She pointed to the car and got into hers while I moved towards my bike.
I got on with my helmet and started the engine, driving off in the direction of school.
First period must have already begun by the time we arrived but it was worth it as long as she's ok. We finally arrived at school parking out vehicles in the parking lot.
"Are you sure you're ok?" I repeated, she chuckled before nodding.
"He apparently didn't even have time for me, too busy getting wasted." She chuckled deeply but I knew it hurt her.
"Hey, I get it. You don't need to pretend."
"I refuse to feel pain for a man who only cares about himself so I'm not pretending." She corrected .
"Drop it Skylar, let's just get to class. School is like my escape and this game too." She smiled at me and I couldn't help but return it.
"Let's go." I beamed half excited.
Classes have been going great since Vanessa and I parted ways. I was on my way to the next class when I got a text from Zac to meet him in the locker room.
"Hey Man." I greeted as he stood there.
"Don't hey man me! What's wrong with Skylar, you can't think of loosing to Vanessa." He gritted his teeth.
"What are you talking about?" I chuckled
"People talk Skylar, long stares, smiles, pecks on the cheek...." He trailed off like the list was endless.
"Because that's what I do with every girl!" I exclaimed in my defense.
"Not with Vanessa, she's different. I knew it from the beginning and now everyone thinks so too, Skylar tell me you won't loose this year most especially."
"Zac, I always win every year. It won't be different even if it's Vanessa or some other girl I promise."
"Well, I guess you did sleep with her, it's a good sign." I started coughing .
"You did have sex with her didn't you?"
"Skylar! You literally stood up for her" He yelled making me roll my eyes.
"Baseless accusations." I retorted with a sly grin.
"Are they Skylar, you know what's at stake, you know the prize you'll get if you win and yet you act so nonchalant."
"I'm not I swear and I know the prizes I'll get when I win not if, I will win Zac, you don't have to worry. If you think I've been playing then I'll up my game I swear, I'll get those prizes." I reassured him in a serious tone....
