Remember, back to school tomorrow for me :( I watched a marathon of TDWT today, since it was on the channel AB3 :) They had my favourite episodes!
‘So, that’s how I won against Bowser for the eighth time, cool huh?’ Sam told our group. We were all sitting at our usual table at recess and Sam was telling us how he defeated Bowser on Super Mario Bros, while everyone was listening with boredom. Zoey and I exchanged bored glances, Cameron was drooling almost falling asleep, B was asleep and Dawn was pretending to listen but was just meditating, not caring.
‘Uh, interesting story Sam!’ I said after he finished his story.
‘Yeah! Want to know how I was able to-‘Sam asked.
‘Maybe another time!’ Zoey interrupted, slowly sitting up from her bored position. Sam shrugged and went back to playing on his console again.
‘I sense Sam’s done talking?’ Dawn asked B, opening her eyes and turning back from her imagination. B as well opened his eyes, forming a smile and nodded back at her.
‘So, now that Sam has finished talking about his... video games, I think, what should we do?’ Cameron asked. Everyone boredly shrugged back.
‘I sense evil lurking,’ Dawn told the group. I turned around to see the two bullies who had beaten me up yesterday, over-looking the top of us.
‘Looks like weakling joined the nerd group!’ the blonde laughed.
‘We’re not nerds!’ Cameron said proudly, standing up to the two bullies but tripped over his untied laces.
‘I rest my case,’ the blonde replied as he looked down to see Cameron at his feet. Cameron’s eyes starting filling with tears, as he lifted up his hands to see dirt written all over them.
‘Please leave us alone, in peace,’ Dawn asked the two politely, B nodding in agreement.
‘You two! Why did you hurt Mike yesterday?! Do you know how badly his body hurts right now?!’ Zoey yelled in their faces.
‘Do I care?’ the brunette asked. Zoey got angry. Her face turned completely red again, lifted up her arm and swung her fist into the brunette’s cheek. He fell in slow motion and landed with a thud on the ground.
‘Ouch!!’ he groaned. The blonde haired looked back at Zoey angrily and kicked Zoey to the ground, making her yelp as hit the hard concrete.
‘Zoey!’ I yelled. At the perfect time, I gasped and turned into Vito.
‘Hey! Why’d you freakin’ hurt the lady?’ I yelled in my Vito accent. I kicked the blonde in the kiwi’s, making his face shrivel up, almost like after eating something very sour. I punched his nose, making him fall backwards onto the ground as everyone in the whole school stopped talking and stared. Zoey looked up, with an amazed look on her face. The brunette haired back up, running off into the distance. A second after, the blonde haired ran off too with a scared look on his face.
‘Wow,’ Sam said in a shocked voice. The whole school went back to what they were doing. Zoey slowly got up from her spot and walked over to me, with a shocked look on her face.
‘Mike, that was amazing! Thank-you so much!’ Zoey squealed and wrapped her arms around me. If I were Mike I would have been hugging her back but since I was Vito, I was confused.
‘Hey, hey! Let go of me pasty,’ I asked Zoey confusingly. Zoey let go and looked much more confused than me.
‘Huh? Pasty?’ she asked as I gasped and turned back to normal.
‘Oh, Zoey! I didn’t mean that. Meet another personality, Vito,’ I explained to the confused red-head.
‘Wow! Vito can come in handy! He’s strong, tough...’ Zoey mentioned.
‘-And annoying!’ I interrupted.
‘Why annoying? He can beat anyone really easily,’ Zoey told me.
‘Yeah but...’ I said but stopped halfway through my sentence. I couldn’t tell that Vito flirts with other chicks. She might... not be my friend anymore.
‘Don’t worry. He is pretty cool though!’ I cheerfully said. Zoey nodded in agreement.
*Later in Geography*
Thankfully, Zoey was in my geography class, as well as B and Cameron. As usual Cameron was answering about every question our teacher said. Cameron was deeply explaining a long story about a place in France and everyone couldn’t care less, even out teacher was falling asleep. I pretended to pay attention but I just stared at Zoey. She was just so beautiful, her dark red hair put in pigtails. Her perfect smile spread across her face and her sparkling brown eyes... she’s just amazing. I never noticed Zoey turned around from the side of me and stared back.
‘Mike... Are you alright?’ Zoey asked with concern.
‘Yeaaah,’ I replied back, not knowing what she said.
‘Well, ok,’ Zoey answered back still confused. She turned to the front and continued listening to Cameron. I jumped in shock as I felt some lightly tapped me on the back. I turned around in relief as I saw B with his arm stretched out, a note in his hand. I took the note from his hand and began to read his neat hand-writing.
‘Hey Mike. I need your help. I like someone, but I’m not sure if she likes me back,’
I finished reading the note and was very surprised that B liked a girl. I turned around and whispered ‘Of course I’ll help! Who is the girl you like?’ B got out his pen and began to write on the piece of paper again. He handed the paper back and on the note was written:
‘I like Dawn,’ Again, I was surprised. I would have never thought B had a crush on Dawn. I turned back around and whispered ‘Nice! Well, we all have a free period later except Dawn. We’ll all help you then,’ B gave me a grateful smile and turned back pretending to care about Cameron’s explanation.
*Later Free Period*
‘Ok, B! We’ll help you out with how to get Dawn, won’t we guys?’ I asked the group at our usual table.
‘Yep! Even though, I’ve only been on a date once. It didn’t turn out well,’ Sam told the group.
‘I’ve never been on these so called dates before,’ Cameron mentioned.
‘Me neither,’ I told everyone. I gave a loud sigh as I remembered a memory from Middle School.
*Back in Year 7*
‘We have a new student! This is Layla,’ our teacher said to our class. Everyone stared up at the new student. She had the friendliest smile, long brunette hair and spoke in a voice of an angel. She sat in a spare seat next to me, and I just stared at her.
‘Hi! What’s your name?’ Layla asked.
‘I’m Mike. Nice to meet you,’ I said in the friendliest way possible. Even though we had just met, I was already in love with her.
‘Don’t talk to him! He’s a freak!’ a kid called out to Layla. Layla gave the kid a confused look and said ‘What do you mean?’ At the worst time possible, I gasped and turned into Chester.
‘Back in my day, freak was now allowed to be used!’ I yelled in my grumpy voice. Layla looked confused as ever and asked ‘Huh?’
‘He has a Multiple Personality Disorder! It’s weird and creepy!’ another called out. I gasped turning back to normal. Throughout that lesson, I kept on changing into my different personalities. The more personalities I would change, the less Layla would talk to me. At recess, she was with a bunch of girls. They walked past and Layla whispered ‘You’re right. He is a freak! I now know why he doesn’t have any friends,’ The words stung my heart to see the girl I loved, hate me. I sat alone for the whole recess yet again, people walking by and whispering about me as usual.
I’ll never find true love.
*End of Flashback*
‘Mike... aren’t you going to answer B’s question?’ Zoey asked. I shook my head, returning to the present instead of the past.
‘Sorry, what did you say?’ I asked B.
‘He asked how should he be able to get Dawn to like him,’ Cameron replied. I thought for a minute.
‘First off, to make Dawn like you, be super nice! Try and compliment once in a while,’ I told B. B gave a nod and a small smile.
‘It’s true, we girls love compliments!’ Zoey giggled. ‘Some of us girls like guys who can be smart or funny. Well, that’s just me though,’ Zoey gave me a glance and smiled at me. I smiled back.
‘Hey, I’ll ask Dawn what type of guy she looks for. Maybe that could help?’ Zoey wondered out loud. B gave another big smile and whispered ‘Thanks,’
Right behind us, the guy with orange hair from detention I had with the other day came up.
‘I heard a rumour that one of you nerds like Dawn!’ he asked in his country styled accent. B nodded and put up his hand,
‘Ha, the quiet fat kid thinks he’s going to get Dawn? Not if I’m able to get her first,’ the orange haired teen laughed. B’s face scrunched up and turned completely red. I had never seen B so angry before.
‘Scott! Go away before I punch your face in! No-one would want to go out with a mean guy like you!’ Zoey yelled.
‘Yes I can, Miss Angry Fat-Ass,’ Scott laughed at Zoey.
‘Hey! Leave her alone!’ I said pushing Scott.
‘Looks like skinny here is standing up for his girlfriend,’ Scott replied. Zoey and I both blushed at the same time.
‘W-we’re not in a relationship,’ I replied nervously.
‘Yeah! J-just friends,’ Zoey added in. Scott rolled his eyes.
‘Whatever. What type of girl would want to go out with B anyway? He never talks!’ Scott laughed. B stood up, his face full of anger.
‘Leave us alone,’ B whispered angrily. Scott didn’t look scared at all; he just laughed and walked away yelling ‘I’ll get her before you!’
‘Don’t worry B! We’re here for you!’ Sam assured him.
‘Yeah. Dawn would never go out with an idiot like him,’ I added.
‘Thanks guys,’ B whispered with a large smile. Hopefully with all this help for B, it will encourage me to do the same for Zoey. I smiled towards her and she did the same back. I just hope she would like to be in a relationship with me.
