8She looked so familiar I seen her before but where? I know her oh my god it’s Ashley Davies from telemetry school. I haven’t seen her since 6th grade it’s been what? About four years. I rememeber I didn’t like her I don’t know just something about her I just didn’t like. You know when you just don’t like somebody for no reason but just something about them just pinches a nerve no matter how nice they are to you. Ha how odd that now she is sitting next to me in my second period Algebra 2 which I hate I never liked math of what’s so ever. I manage to pass it with a somewhat good grade but never with flying colors.
My name is Spencer Carlin I’ve been living here in LA all my life, I have had my good times here and as well as my bad times. I just started my sophomore year here at King high school, king high is a small school compared to all the other schools here in King High there are about 500 to 600 student. Here at King high you tend to run into the same people every day and when you run into someone new like I did today it’s a little weird, but hey it’s the first day of school. Well in my case not new but someone I knew before. Her name is Ashley Davies we went to Preston Elementary we didn’t really talk to each other she was more of a loner and I was always everywhere from playing kick ball to playing a board game or to just hanging with friends but the thing was that you never caught me doing the same thing every day and yes I have always been more of a tomboy than a girly girl that is what happens when you are surrounded by all guys in your family. But that changed about a year ago I started to dress more “girly” like people call it or at least that’s what my grandma calls it. I was cool with everybody and outgoing but that changed. I don’t know what happened I started to become more self conscious as I went to middle school.
And now that I’m in high school I have become even more shy, in class I’m quiet always doing my work and I’m not that social anymore. And for me to start a conversation well let’s just say good luck with that.
Ms. Jay: “everybody get a book so we can go and check them out to the library!” I seriously have heard stories about this teacher that she has some relay bad mood swings, and will go off on you out of nowhere. Some people say that she is like that because she was engaged or something to this really good looking guy but he didn’t have the money for her luxuries so she broke it off. And other people say that he dumped her, and that that’s why she is always so grumpy. But I don’t know if it’s true or not she actually seems nice, I guess we will have to see as the year passes by.
As we headed to the library I wanted to talk to her to see if she actually remembered me because I did, she looks exactly the same just older of course. But I’m not the type to start a conversation with someone. So I just stayed quiet.
So to my surprise that class went by fast well they all did, you just have to love the first days of school when you get out early and you don’t do anything what’s so ever. And by the looks of my schedule I think I might enjoy all my classes even though I don’t have any with anybody I really talk to except for my first period I have it with my friend Haley. I talk to her but not as much she is just an in class friend you get me?
Glen: “com on Spencer I want to get home already it so dam hot out here!” oh right that is my brother Glen he is a senior and could be an ass at times but he is there when I need him and vice versa. He doesn’t attend this school he actually goes to Parking High, he didn’t want to come here because he is all about playing sports and at the moment he is the captain of the basketball team there. Which is a good thing because going to school with him is not that great of a thing trust me I did for a year and it was not pretty. He was always in my business checking on what I was doing and who I was talking to and if he didn’t approve he would scare them off. I guess he was being protective I like that about him but sometimes I just need a breather so I decided to come to King High.
It has been about two weeks and I always end up sitting next to her, I don’t know it is the last seat in class left when I come in or when she comes in and when there are other seats left she sits next to me. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind but one of these days we are going to have to talk or something.
Ashley: “can you pass me a book” and she speaks
Spencer: “yea sure”
Spencer: “no problem”
And that is pretty much how it went for a couple of weeks till
Ms. Jay “everybody take you seats, which includes you Sam. Today we are going to do a little project” please don’t make it group work, I don’t like working in groups because I usually end up doing all the work. “You could either work in two’s or four’s” that’s great just great
Sam: “can we pick our own partners?”
Samantha Marks not the brightest student in school but she sure is a pretty good friend well at least from what I hear.
Ms. Jay “yes as long as you don’t get up and change seats with people”
Sam “I guess you’re stuck with me Daisy”
Daisy Sanders I meet her last year I have talked to her a couple of times but she is not really a friend we have mutual friends but that’s it.
Ms. Jay “okay with that said, the project is very simple I will pass out the instructions and it will be due on Monday” okay let’s see who can I work wi……….
Ashley: “hey you want to just work together?”
Spencer: “yea sure” I wonder if she remembers me
Ms. Jay: “okay get to it”
Am just sitting there looking over the paper and reading over and over and am guessing am going to end up doing all the work again.
