9/10 I loved the last sentence in the first paragraph. That’s pretty bold for someone to say. I feel like I got a good sense of who Aurora is or could be. And punching someone in the face seems like a realistic thing she would do.
The Element of Life
George soon walked by from a far distance and gave Regina and awkward smile. She did the same. I began to wonder if something actually happened between them at prom. Of course, Regina would never admit to something like that in public. It would have to be private away from the lurkers waiting for a good gossip. The rest of the day was going to suck. I’d have to face Elliot and Janelle and desperately didn’t want to do that. Luckily Regina was by my side and would defend me at any means necessary like the friend that she was. It certainly was nice to have a couple of friends by your side that would never backstab you. Regina held my hand as tightly as possible on the way to first period as we had the same class together.
“You do the homework?” I asked.
“Hell no. Especially not during prom weekend.”
We both snickered.
“Someday we need to actually do our homework or were not going to make it in college. If I were smarter, I would know how to date properly.”
“Eh, I doubt that.”
Naturally we never did our homework and just find someone who did. Half our class did that. People are willing to help you cheat in an Algebra Class. It is what it is. You certainly can’t change that.
