Her group had decided not to study for the test next period during lunch, but she had to. Alison Macafee, fifteen years old, attends Willow Park High school, an all girl private school. She got there on a scholarship, which is why she most ace all her test, including the one in her Science class next hour. Of course, her group mates didn't know she wasn't rich, that she was the only girl out of six kids, and that she wasn't really in to studying but had to, just to stay in the best school of the state of Arizona. Not that they would care, Alison can, make anyone feel guilty as soon as they look into her chocolate brown eyes. Alison, or Ali for short, sat down in the only empty table in the cafeteria, and opened her Physics book. She was half way through her notes when a trey landed in front of her. She looks up only to see this black hair, black eyes, girl dressed in all black, had she seen her before? The girl didn't even look up at her as she took a bite of her pizza. Ali was about to go back to her notes when another trey, landed next to her. Ali looks back up only to see one of the Cheerleaders getting in the chair next to her. They both ignore her, so she did the same.
Wendy Hartin, sixteen, isn't really Goth or emo, or anything, she just decided on wearing all black that day. She's actually in the softball team, she was suppose to sit with her team mates, but they didn't allow her to because of how she's dressed today. Her dog died, what did they expect?! So she had to sit down in the only table that didn't have a clique, only this lone girl, with her nose in her book. She didn't want to bother her; since it seem that she was really into her notes, so she just ate her pizza.
Melinda Weise, sixteen, is a cheerleader, she had been to a party the previous night, with the rest of the cheerleaders, but unlike the others she didn't feel like drinking any of the alcohol in the party, so now she can't sit with them until they're over their angriness, which will happen today in practice. Mel is very talkative. She looks at the table she just sat in to see a emo girl eating a slice of pizza and a nerd taking notes. Where have a I landed? But she had to say something; she couldn't just sit around a whole hour doing nothing. Here goes nothing.
"Hello, I'm Melinda Weise." She said, and they both look up at her.
"Hi, I'm Alison, but my friends call me Ali." Ali reply with a smile.
"And I'm Wendy."
"So why aren't you girls sitting with your cliques?" Melinda asks.
"I need to pass my Physics test, but none of the braniacs wants to study today. Surprise?" Ali said, smiling and closing her book, putting her notes inside so she won't lose her page.
"Yes." Both girls reply.
"The braniacs don't want to study, that's so weird." Wendy said. "Anyways, I'm here because the softball team doesn't want me sitting with them today by how I'm dressed."
"You're not emo?" Melinda asks and Wendy shook her head.
"No, my dog died this weekend." Wendy told them. "I know is stupid but is my dog. I've had him since I was five."
"You talk like you lost a family member." Melinda said, laughing and Ali joined her.
"Yeah, yeah." Wendy said, smiling. "So why are you here, Mrs. Cheerleader?"
"I went to this party last night, an older party, with alcohol and stuff, with my cheerleader group." Melinda started. "They all started drinking, except me, so when the head cheerleader realized it she gave me two options: Drink or Leave. And of course I left; now they're not talking to me."
"That's good, you didn't respond to peer pressure." Ali said, smiling at Melinda.
"Yeah. I have to make it up to them at practice today though." Melinda said.
"You gotta do what you gotta do. So," Wendy said. "I'll make it up to my team by doing well in practice."
"I'll make it up to my group by passing my Physics test." Ali said. "So, let’s make a deal, if one of us don't do what they say, they would have to do whatever the other two say. What do you think?"
"Deal." Melinda said, putting her hand in front of her.
"Deal." Wendy put her hand on top of Mel.
"And deal." Ali closed the deal by putting her hand on top of Wendy.
